Getting to Know You

Posted: 14/08/2012 in Ramblings

I’m in the mood to share. As you can see on my Gravatar site, I’ve shared a few of my favorite things. The problem is that you can never think of the best stuff to share that really applies to you. So, I’ve decided to create a blog entry that will allow me to share things from my geekier side, as well as more random things. Now, this will be a bit like the old Myspace (I can’t believe I mentioned that site, ugh) posts where someone would share a giant list of questions that were answered. One, I’m bored and I wanted to do something a bit fun. Second, I actually enjoy these a bit.

It all started when I was going through Memebase and I came across this particular image. I had to post it on Facebook and decided to answer the questions presented. What better way to start, right?

The answers:
1. Earth (I could bend metal and sand as well).
2. Ravenclaw (They have the best house colors, mascot, traits).
3. Pegasus.
4. DC -Green Lantern/Nightwing, Marvel -The Thing/Spider-Man (Image -Invincible)
5. Ainur (Immortal world shaping gods).
6. Vampire (American Vampire style, or Anne Rice style).
7. Purple (Blue would be my choice if it were a darker shade).
8. Insanity Wolf/60s Spider-Man
9. Fighting (Primeape/Hariyama)
10. Ranger/Rogue (Rangers have a bit of magic, and Rogues can be assassins/thieves) I almost always chose either when playing RPG video games.

My Five Favorite Foods:

1. Grilled Steak (Blue) with a Baked Potato and Grilled Zucchini
2. Sukiyaki (Beef)
3. Traditional Irish Stew
4. Chicken Tikka Masala
5. Tako and Tuna Poke
They are in order from most to least favorite of the five. Now, I didn’t include pizza and such because most people enjoy those. To say they are your favorite is either a cop out, or you haven’t experienced enough of the culinary world. Go try new things! Oh, and “blue,” when in reference to steak means very rare. As in, cook it for about a minute on each side. Then, serve it to me.

Dislikes:

  • Willful Ignorance
  • PETA
  • Stupidity
  • Withholding of Equal Rights
  • Indoctrination
  • Politicians (Generalization)
  • Self-righteous Vegans/Vegetarians (It’s your choice, not anyone else’s)
  • Organized Religion (individuals who practice are fine, as long as they don’t try to push their beliefs on anyone else)
  • And people who don’t know the difference between liking a film, and it being good.

Well, there you have it. There’s some trivial information that helps you to get to know me a bit better. If this were 1998, I’d give you my AIM SN and tell you to just IM me in order to find out more; however, something tells me that you don’t really care either way. All I can say is that I provided the information and maybe you skipped this entry, or maybe you found out that we share similar tastes. Either way, I’ve opened up a bit. This is one of those blogs that is directed towards the non-existent readers. I’ll go back to vague, impersonal yet  “interesting” entries now. I can’t promise that you won’t get another one of these in the future.
