|03:28 pm - Musings on reflections|
One day recently, I was chatting with shizukagozen about perceptions and reflections, in particular about the self, and I decided that I needed a poll.
Why is there no "." in "Michael J Dangler"?
Because I'm an ass.
Because I'm a pretentious ass.
Because it gives me something to complain about.
Because if women can quiz men on the colour of their eyes, I can quiz friends on the lack of a dot.
Because, like Harry S Truman, my middle initial doesn't stand for anything.
Because my middle name is not part of my identity.
Because I think it seems mysterious.
My ideal date is:
a walk along a sandy beach, barefoot on a clear starry night
eating jellyfish in a Korean restaurant where the Karaoke is loud
not involving anything datelike at all, but lots of mud on the boots
unimportant, as long as she's hot.
dinner and a movie, then maybe back to my place for a quiet night.
a bottle of mead passed around a group of total strangers, and sly glances across the circle at my girl
ahagging, plain and simple. Everything else is icing. On nipples.
My LiveJournal entries are best understood:
when they're least understood
with a bottle of rum and a lime
when I'm not being evasive
when I make efforts to not be vague
when I'm at my most vague
when we accept that "understanding" is not important
In general, when I'm laughing I'm really:
What is my sexual orientation?
something involving farm animals
something involving lesbians, honey, and a tripod
My ideal line of work is:
A Customer Services Rep!
A Man with Dirty Boots!
A Cthulhu Cultist!
A High Class Male Hooker!
I'm still living with Tina, even though we broke up 9 months ago.
That's totally f'ed up. I should get out.
That's totally f'ed up. I should kick her out.
Hey, if it works, it works.
I really should charge her more rent.
I'm still in love with her and won't move on until someone moves out.
We're still incredibly close friends and I don't see that changing.
We're still incredibly close friends, but keeping that is a pipe dream.
We're still dating, but I said we broke up so I'd get hit on more.
It's been 9 months? Well, at least I know it's not mine.
With how many people have I had sex?
My heroes are:
James Bond, Indiana Jones, Red Skelton, and Samwise Gamgee
Indiana Jones, Joe Merchant, Mario, and Norman Paperman
Mazi, Jeff Tanner, Ash, and Joe Merchant
Ron Jeremy, Norman Paperman, Link, and Jeff Tanner
Norman Paperman, Link, Indiana Jones, and Ash
Han Solo, Link, Indiana Jones, and Norman Paperman
My dad, Harrison Ford, Norman Paperman, and Jimmy Buffett
How many dark secrets do I have?
If I have one or more dark secrets, please name them. If you don't know it, make it up:
What's hot about uniforms?
It reminds me of my Catholic school days.
It's the chance to live out a fantasy, a fountain of youth of sorts, or a chance to have what I never could.
I dated a cheerleader and can't get her out of my mind.
Nurses belong on climbing walls, with me on belay. End of story.
I find them amusing, not hot. It's really the amusement that's hot.
"That's what I like about high school girls. . . I keep getting older, they stay the same age. . ."
I totally don't know, but it's hot.
If I bought a RealDoll (careful, site not safe for work), I would use it:
as God intended: as a sex toy.
by hanging it in my closet to scare people who took off their coats at a party.
to drive in the carpool lanes.
for various art projects and public gags.
to sit in my office so I could go hiking, or to the beach.
for all of the above reasons.
for anything but the first reason, most likely.
What am I most likely to rely on when making decisions?
My previous experience. If it worked right once, it'll do so again.
The previous experience of fictional characters. Who better to show us how to live than someone who never has?
My gut. I know I can trust myself to make the right choice.
My Magic 8 Ball. It has never steered me wrong.
My friends' advice. They know what's best for me.
Song lyrics. I believe in song lines, obvious and not. I've ridden them like camels to some most peculiar spots.
Gods only know what I'm thinking. Generally something stupid.
Current Mood: curious
Current Music: "Sea of Heartbreak", -JB
You know, I could decide whether to be honest or a smart-ass on this one. So I was both. :)
I imagine half the people taking it are in the same boat. . .
I am! Look how many people (or how few) I've slept with!
Nah, number of partners doesn't make one a slut. . . I'm not even sure being a slut is a bad thing. . .
Being a slut is never bad-- until you meet a slut you want and they won't sleep with you. :)
It will never cease to amaze me how my definition failing to mesh with other definitions is such a major issue sometimes. . . I do need to update my website regarding such definitions, though. Eventually.

Are there points for correct answers? Will the correct answers be revealed?

Re: answer key?
I do believe that the answers *will* be, at least mostly, revealed.
(Good thing you spelled "revealed" right. I couldn't manage it. "revield", I wrote. . . "reveiled"?)

Re: answer key?
I just hope that your answers aren't reviled.

Re: answer key?
With my answers, they might be :)
Sheesh, for question #1 there was no option for "Because I'm lazy." So I chose the next closest thing: "I'm trying to be mysterious." ;P
*nods* I'll cover the "lazy" argument later :)
I did this, but bear in mind I don't know you that well, nor have I ever met you in person. So you're really getting the "livejournal friend" perspective with my answers. :) It was a fun test tho.
Quite alright, as those preceptions are also fun to look at and read :)
