42 things about me(me)

If the mind goes blank, steal a meme. Hopefully, that’ll buy you some time. But do it from a person kind enough to not get mad at you. 🙂

  1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
    My Grandfather. My real name is Crisostomo, btw. It’s a Greek word (according to a Greek friend) meaning golden mouth. However, most of the time, I’d rather have it glued shut.
  2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
    A couple of days ago… while praying.
  3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
    I do. I even have a name for the pieces of papers I write on. It’s called the X-Files.
  4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
    Pastrami (preferably on rye with mustard)
  5. DO YOU HAVE ANY KIDS?
    Yes. 2 Electrics and 4 acoustics. And a disobedient bass that’s about to be disowned.
  6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
    No doubt! And the more, the merrier.
  7. DO YOU USE SARCASM?
    Only when it’s funny. I am enraged when it is used to intentionally hurt someone. I think it’s cowardly.
  8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
    All original parts intact. Though, at my age, I’m not sure if that’s good or bad.
  9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
    Years ago, I would have liked to. Today, I’d rather sit on a rocking chair holding a shotgun. Okay, a guitar.
  10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
    I’m embarrassed but… Fruit loops, Apple Jacks, Frosted Flakes, Cap’n Crunch… you get the idea.
  11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
    Yes. But honestly, I’d rather be barefoot.
  12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
    Physically? Not so much anymore. Emotionally and spiritually? I’d like to think so.
  13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
    Mint chocolate chip.
  14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
    The combination of one’s voice and facial expression. I hate to say it but that’s where my first and final judgment of a person stems from. So, go ahead and spank me.
  15. RED OR PINK?
    Used to be red. A year ago, I changed it to green. I must’ve mellowed out.
  16. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
    That I am silently critical. Hate it, hate it, hate it!!!
  17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
    I’d rather not say lest the pain comes back.
  18. WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
    Black pants, brown shoes.
  19. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
    Well, a friend of mine and I had Chinese buffet for lunch today. Needless to say, I’m skipping dinner and going straight for the mint chocolate chip ice cream.
  20. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
    My own indecipherable murmurings. Musicwise, my last.fm is currently tagged to play Beatlesque power pop guitar oriented music.
  21. IF YOU WHERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
    White. I’d like to think I’m long-lasting.
  22. FAVORITE SMELLS?
    Citrus fruits. Rose petals. Morning dew. Ocean breeze. And a big fat dripping double bacon cheese burger.
  23. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
    Steve, my artist friend in L.A. who’s had a surgery a couple of days ago. He’s doing fine, thanks for asking.
  24. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
    Spongebob.
  25. HAIR COLOR?
    Black
  26. EYE COLOR?
    Brown

    Italian, Chinese
  29. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
    Scary movies with scary endings (i.e. 28 Days/Weeks Later)
  30. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
    Live Free or Die Hard, on cable.
  31. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
    Brown.
  32. FAVORITE SEASON?
    Winter! Actually, Fall… if only because it gives me the feeling that winter is just around the corner.
  33. HUGS OR KISSES?
    Hugs with Kisses. Fine, I’ll take the Hershey’s kind.
  34. FAVORITE DESSERT?
    Ice cream! Or anything and everything with ice cream on it.
  35. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
    I don’t read books much. Except for the Bible.
  36. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?
    Contact info of some bankrupt, fly-by-night insurance company.
  37. WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON TV LAST NIGHT?
    CSI Miami reruns. There’s no trace of evidence (puts on glasses), no bag of chips or popcorn in sight. Yeeeeeaaaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!
  38. FAVORITE SOUNDS?
    Alternating minor and major chords. Beatlesque harmonies. Anything Beatles. The voices of John, Paul, George and Ringo. Anybody that sounds like them. Oh, and Wings too, with the Linda McCartney synth lines included.
  39. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
    Guess.
  40. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
    Where I am now.

There you have it. It’s been fun and I hope someone else does one cuz I’m not tagging any. Oh, except for my friend Mike, who’s kind enough to spare a moment out of his busy day to let us in on some forgotten personal facts. Right, Mike?

  1. Thanks for stopping by and mourning my former site. And thanks for making me laugh (with this blog – you are one of the better blog writers I know, well sort of “know”). And for staying my online friend!

    Sort of?? There has to be some other kind of meme I can use to resolve this issue. You let me know if you find one, ok? 🙂

  2. Thanks Chris that was enjoyable, edifying, exciting and entertaining. Thanks.

    DavidM

    Gibson, Fender,or Rickenbacker ?

    Currently, I have Takamine, C.F.Martin, Ovation, Ibanez, Yamaha, etc. The three you mentioned, however, are on my wish list. My wishful thinking list, rather.

  3. enjoyable read, I like green as well, somehow it’s just like the most soothing color one can ever find, I wasn’t surprise that you like the Beatles but then again, everyone likes the Beatles but most people don’t like Linda, I actually like the song with her vocals on it,”silly love song”, at first I thought the female voice was Susanne Vega, still sounds good even today

    I used to practice singing “Silly Love Songs” while playing the bass line. It wasn’t easy but fun. Love that song too. And I think Suzanne Vega was still in elementary school around this time.

  4. You are a kindred spirit, indeed. My son has recently discovered Wings. (he’s always going through our old records and also found that first McCartney album with “Maybe I’m Amazed” on it. What a brilliant track!)He is singing it non-stop.

    Can’t believe you like the same ice-cream as me and that you also like pastrami on rye. Uncanny. So nice to learn more about you.

    Good on Nick! He’s got taste! Me, I think I like the campy tunes the best… Uncle Albert, Let ‘Em In, Maxwell Silver Hammer, When I’m 64, Octopus Garden, etc.

  5. oh chris that was so fun.. i try and not do memes,,, but i just might end up doing this one someday… you made it look like so much fun….

    I would love to read yours, Paisley.

  6. Crisostomo, I am sooo saving this for later use…(big grin)

    At the count of three, you will wake up and forget my real name or that you were ever here.
