i love answering questions

    I'm not sure about the rest of it, but I love answering questions. And becca gave me 11 of them. So for anyone interested.

    My 11 questions:
    what are you currently reading or would like to read?

    If you could have dinner with one person living or dead who would it be?

    Either Rene Redzepi (runs the supposed best restaurant in the world) or Moses, see what it was like surviving ten plagues.

    If you could go back in time to one day in your life which day would it be and why?

    Probably my best birthday ever, the one with the pinata, and I would break it open this time and not let everyone else have a turn because it was my birthday dammit and I should have broken it open and then used the bat to beat away the children from my birthday pinata candy, because I'm incredibly selfish, that's why.

    Long or Short hair? 

    Long in the winter, short in the summer, I look awesome with short hair, but I have drawers full of hair stuff and I love putting my hair up.

    Favorite cartoon as a kid?

    This one creeped me out, but it was like a car accident, I just couldn't look away.

    But I guess favorite cartoons would be the ones where Bugs Bunny dressed up as a girl

    Morning or night person? 

    Night person for sure.

    If your life was a movie what would it be a comedy, drama, horror? 

    I'm happy to say there's nothing that horrifying or especially dramatic in my life right now so I'm leaning towards mockumentary, and as soon as I start work, hopefully it'll be like The Office.

    If you found yourself pregnant at this moment would you want a boy or girl?

    I hope that it wouldn't be any generic sex but be the new generation of mutants that X-Men has promised us will happen sometime soon. So boy or girl, it just has to fly and have scales and mimic any voice so I can have celebrity voice mail messages.

    Hit shuffle on your iPod or if you don't own one turn on the radio and name the first song that plays?

    Missy Elliot: Pump It Up

    And then I tried it seven more times and got : Cake, Foo Fighters, Monica, The Postal Service, Eminem, Foreigner and Soundgarden.

    If you were a singer and had to pick a duet partner who would it be and why?

     Either La Roux because I can totally get 5 stars on Expert when I sing Bulletproof on Rock Band so everyone would think I'm just that good, or Eminem and I would spit some slick rhymes like only two white people can.
    += what I could sound like.

    name the last movie you watched be it on TV or in the theater? Hustle and Flow

    And then I hit shuffle five more times: 

    Stevie Wonder, Yelawolf, Soundgarden, Coldplay, Pearl Jam

    job hunt

    So I turned down my first job offer. This was how I felt when I got offered a job...

    awesome, this isn't as bad as I thought it would be, I won't spend months looking for a job and being broke and getting more and more hopeless as the weeks drag on

    And this was how I felt when I turned it down...

    There will be other chances and better paying/better locations/better jobs, I'm worth more than what they're offering and I can hold out until a better opportunity comes along. And I don't want to start my commute at 4AM.

    And this is how I feel now.

    Someone has to call back sometime. I mean I couldn't have turned down the only job offer in the state? Could I?

    And that's about it.

    But I'm still hopeful.

    I accepted my second job offer. So I guess it isn't all that bad.

    Haiku Monday Winner

    Holy crap that was awesome! I really hope I win again one of these days because getting haiku's all over me was certainly the highlight of my week! 
    Thank you all for sharing a little about yourselves and getting creative all over the place. While I tried to comment on everyone's haiku either here or at your personal blogs let me say a little something about the haiku's that stood out to me:

    Rafael-  I'm totally stealing your lines for my next trivia team name because they're awesome. Although I prefer my Margarita's blended I love the different ways you can read the last line of your third haiku. Go team 'quickly spent wad!'

    grins- both of yours really made me smile, and then I thought about it, and then I smiled some more.

    Karl- You really hit the spot with summer ale and for making me use my dictionary.

    Fleurdeleo- I love how it starts the night after work on such a high note and ends probably at last call in a puddle of tears and red wine stains.

    fishy- I could almost feel the aroma therapy foam up my nose. 

    Taking in to account the advice and opinions of dad and my literary friend and my fiancee, I finally picked out the one haiku that I adore not only for the picture in my mind but for the carefully crafted assault of the senses, I can almost see/smell/hear your haiku come to life.

    The person who sent me the most  money captured the hearts of myself and my team of haiku readers is becca! Thank you and congrats! Now your group can get back to normal and thanks to all who played!

    oh, snap ya'll I just won!

    Guess what, I won a Haiku Monday! From this dude's blog! What a surprise (or total accident). I need a freaking trophy. One that would look like this: 

    As I left the last of my talent on squeezing out one awesome haiku (as deemed by others) and few crap ones (as deemed by me, because who wants to hear about chicken feet) I shall suck down some inspiration celebrate with a much needed Margarita. As the chosen one, it falls to me to chose the next topic and judge for the upcoming week. What a responsibility...
    Holy cocktail onion Batman! I just thought of a theme for next week. 

    Happy Hour ya'll! Anyone with a  libation/relaxation/free cover charge/cocktail related haiku will be welcome. So I hear the rules are as follows: 
    Write a haiku, leave it in the comments. 5-7-5 syllable format. Utterly awesome if you use kigo and kiru like a real badass haiku writer.
    Write as many as you'd like and choose 2 you think are great enough to capture the hearts and attention of myself (and probably my parents too). 
    Include a link to your blog with visuals if you'd like, that would please me but not necessary.
    You have until Monday 9/10 at 4 (or around there) in the afternoon Pacific time. 

    This was quite helpful for the rules and basics of haiku writing. 

    This is my first time so I might overlook things like counting syllables and all that but I'll totally do my best. Thanks again every one who gives it a try and for giving me a chance to do this. And go!
