Friday Five

Rob @ 1:47 PM

Nicked from teh grouse.

1. What's harder to live without, chocolate or alcohol?

I've lived without alcohol for pretty much my whole life, so far without incident. On the other hand, for a short time when I was very young I developed a food allergy to chocolate, and that was absolutely miserable. Screw that "carob" nonsense, it's not the same at all.

2. Does the colour yellow remind you of anything?

Lemon yellow sun, honey, Post-its, my formerly favorite Power Ranger before I found out she was a Scientologist and also dead.

3. Who most annoyed you last week?

Myself. I've pissed me off real good.

4. Do you have a cutesy romantic nickname for your partner (or previous partners)?

Whenever I've nicknamed someone it's usually resulted in reactions ranging from blank stares to extreme hurt, and a quick promise to never to say or think it again.

I do still have the hacker-culture habit of addressing certain people I know by their screen-names or handles in real life, even in private, which I tended to maintain with the hackers I've dated.

5. What is your favourite Stephen King movie?

The Stand. It's actually a miniseries, but I love pretty much everything about the adaptation of one of my all-time favorite books, apart from Jamey Sheridan's mullet and a few entirely gratuitous early 1990s morphing effects.

    Chocolate. I don't drink alcohol very often. I would if I saw my friends more. I'm planning on going to bonfires this summer and so I'll be drinking there. But not to get shitfaced.

    2. Does the colour yellow remind you of anything?

    Yellow Starbursts.

    3. Who most annoyed you last week?

    Collin. Life. :)

    4. Do you have a cutesy romantic nickname for your partner (or previous partners)?

    I used to for Charles but not for Collin. Maybe for you.

    5. What is your favourite Stephen King movie?

    The Green Mile or the Shawkshank Redemption. I have contemplated sending my dad a poster and a spoon.

    Matt Frewer is LEET. I’d watch that guy read his grocery list.
