Enough about me

Found this little quiz via franny on tony pearce's blog. why do people have such a hard time thinking up interesting questions? i really am going to have to make up one of these myself one of these days.

1. which political party do you typically agree with? democratic/green

2. which political party do you typically vote for? democratic

3. list the last five presidents that you voted for? [assuming this question really wants the five different nominees i voted for in recent elections] gore, clinton (2), dukakis, mondale, carter

4. which party do you think is smarter about the economy? i don't think parties possess intelligence, but, if i have to answer under protest, democratic

5. which party do you think is smarter about domestic affairs? ibid, democratic

6. do you think we should keep our troops in Iraq or pull them out? pull'em off

7. who, or what country, do you think is most responsible for 9/11? osama b.l. (both talibani & saudi arabian govts tilled, fertilized, and watered the ground whence the attack grew but, i think, didn't understand there were actual 9/11 seeds planted there)

8. do you think we will find weapons of mass destruction in iraq? no; at most maybe a few pre-1991 pieces or two

9. yes or no, should the u.s. legalize marijuana? hell, yes.

10. do you think the republicans stole the last presidental election? doesn't everyone?

11. do you think bill clinton should have been impeached because of what he did with monica lewinski? are you fucking kidding?

12. do you think hillary clinton would make a good president? probably.

13. name a current democrat who would make a great president: barney frank!!!!!! (my representative [swoon])

14. name a current republican who would make a great president: mccain, olympia snowe, or bill weld, conceivably

15. do you think that women should have the right to have an abortion? um, duh

16. what religion are you? fundamentalist bible-thumping atheist

17. have you read the Bible all the way through? yes. i love it. but i've read the complete sherlock holmes more and probably lord of the rings as well and certainly the sibley and peterson field guides and also paula legoun's beauty bible. dictionaries and thesauruses are my real bibles.

18. what's your favorite book? any specimen in fine or better condition of the first printing of audubon's elephant folio, of laurence sterne's the life and times of tristram shandy esq., of the first folio of shakespeare, of the first edition of johnson's dictionary, of anything personally hand-printed by blake, and also that copy of johnson's shakespeare once owned by melville and now in the houghton. ok, i wouldn't kick a first edition of bentley's annotated paradise lost out of bed either.

19. who is your favorite band? speckled

20. who do you think you'll vote for president in the next election? Kerry

21. what website did you see this on first? tonypierce.com + busblog (via franny)

These rather more evocative questions come from Kitty Bukkake, also via Franny

Tony gave me his blessing to add the honest bloggers-only quiz Kitty Bukkake addendum, so be honest:

1. Do you try to look hot when you go to the grocery store just in case someone recognizes you from your blog? yeah, good luck. but i try to look hot anyway.

2. Are the photos you post Photoshopped or otherwise altered? no. except scaling them to size.

3. Do you like it when creeps or dorks email you? no creeps or dorks have ever emailed me. well, ok, dorks have (we're talkin' computer-people here), but i like dorks. those waxing admiring over my openness about masturbating i just don't answer (though i'm secretly flattered)

4. Do you lie in your blog? No. Except sometimes I exaggerate a bit for effect. But I do disguise identities, which from time to time can involve a kind of flagrant misdirection.

5. Are you passive-aggressive in your blog? Hmmmmm. I think I'm passive and aggressive alternately.

6. Do you ever threaten to quit writing so people will tell you not to stop? Now, there's an idea . . . .

7. Are you in therapy? If not, should you be? If so, is it helping? Yes, yes, yes, yes

8. Do you delete mean comments? Do you fake nice ones? No, no. but i just got comments last week and haven't had any mean ones.

9. Have you ever rubbed one out while reading a blog? How about after? I'm embarrassed to admit I've never actually encountered the expression "rubbed one out," but, making a guess about it's meaning, I'd have to say-- no, yes. OK, well, maybe there was one yes in the first position. Depending on what you wanna count as a blog.

10. If your readers knew you in person, would they like you more or like you less? Less, I imagine. I try to keep all the truly awful stuff off the blog. And I rarely pass out on couches of those I don't know in person.

11. Do you have a job? No

12. If someone offered you a decent salary to blog full-time without restrictions, would you do it? Are you fucking kidding me? Could this question be from an actual blogger?

13. Which blogger do you want to meet in real life? tie: everyone on my blogroll, of course! (except the wingnuts) but in the mood i'm in right now i'd love to have a weekend at a country estate where somebody gets murdered, with katie, cynthia, kasey, josh, tom, margaret, richard, chris, nathalie, ray, cat, stephanie, michael, franny, ana, and, of course, dave

14. How many bloggers have you made out with? 0

15. Do you usually act like you have more money or less money than you really have? i have no idea. probably less.

16. Does your family read your blog? hope not!

17. How old is your blog? 9 months

18. Do you get more than 1000 pageviews per day? Do you care? no. i don't care that i don't get 1000. but i'm sad when it's like 12.

19. Do you have another secret blog in which you write about being depressed, slutty, or a liar? in the works

20. Have you ever given another blogger money for his/her writing? is this a weird question? why would you pay another blogger for writing . . . .?

21. Do you report the money you earn from your blog on your taxes? excuse me, money i earn on my blog?

22. Is blogging narcissistic? Yes

23. Do you feel guilty when you don't post for a long time? Yes

24. Do you like John Mayer? i'm not sure who john mayer is. i have the sense he's a recent pap music person?

25. Do you have enemies? i don't know

26. Are you lonely? sometimes

27. Why bother? um, well, exactly. pleez lemme know if you get a good answer.
This is Kitty saying thanks for answering the quiz!
Thanks, Kitty, for writing it! Sorry for the occasionally grumpy comments. It really is fun to get to know more about the people you read every day.

Alot of interesting comments on this blog, I was searching for some doctor related info and some how cam across this site. I found it pretty cool, so I bookmarked. I'll really liked the second post on the front page, that got my attention.

My site is in a bit different area, but just as useful. I have a mens male enhancement reviews related site focusing on mens male enhancement reviews and mens health related topics.
