From the Mangina Monologues: The Random Survey for the Bored November 1, 2009

Posted by truthspew in Uncategorized.

Found this on The Mangina Monologues.

What is on your Desktop Wallpaper?

A Hubble shot of the southern cross. I love the images beamed back from orbiting telescopes. Think about that for a moment, a telescope in orbit. Galileo would have loved that.

But this particular shot is of bright, very hot stars with short lives. One is even into it’s red phase (helium/carbon fusion).

What is your favorite zoo animal?

The elephant. They’re very interesting and social creatures.

What was your favorite toy as a child?

Lego. Without a doubt I still love building things today.

What food do you eat too much of?

Pasta! But here’s the trick, pasta dish with a sauce and a glass of wine cannot be beat.

What kind of hairstyle do you have?

Short, pushed back and gelled. I have wildly curly hair so I need to keep it down.

What was your favorite gymclass activity?

Skipping the class entirely. I could be found in the library if they’d have bothered to look.

What is on the shirt you are wearing right now?

It’s an EFF T-shirt. On the front are a padlock with the word “privacy”, a pair of red headphones with the word “fair use”, a yellow light bulb witht he word “innovation”, and finally a red megaphone with the words “free speech” below. The back of the shirt has the full EFF logo with the slogan “Member supported since 1994.”

I’ve gotten compliments from a few people when I wear this shirt.

What is the nearest picture to you of?

It is a picture of myself and my mom at Niagra Falls on the Canadian side. I was 11 years old with a mop of dirty blond hair.

What kind of salad dressing do you like?

Italian, but I am starting to love blue cheese dressing too.

What is your least favorite food?

Most animal organ meat. Brains, heart, liver, tongue… with the exception of chicken liver pate! The latter with some good cheeses (E.g. Stilton) and lightly toasted rounds of french bread and a good wine, heaven! I do note, wine is playing a much larger part in my life lately.

What do you do on a Sunday night?

Whatever the hell I please.

If you could use only one condiment on your food the rest of your life, what would it be?

Ketchup. Hey it includes both tomato and vinegar. And yes, I’m one who on occasion will put vinegar and salt on french fries.

What color are your bedsheets?


How big is your computer display?

14.1″. It’s a laptop.

What pair of shoes do you wear most often?

A pair of Reebok sneakers.

What is your favorite game?

Super Mario Brothers 3. Or Enigmo on my iPod Touch. I don’t play trivial pursuit anymore. The reason being, I tend to know too much. And people have a hard time believing that.

What is your favorite Thanksgiving Food?

Garlic mashed potatoes, from scratch no less.

What is your favorite Pizza topping?

I tend to like pepperoni a lot. Usual pizza gets cheese, pepperoni, olives and mushrooms.

What time do you plan on waking up tomorrow?

About 7 or 8AM. We’ll see.

What is your favorite day of the year?

It isn’t a day so much as a time period. I’m talking 2nd week of April when the temps start to swing upward and you’re pretty much free of snow and ice for six months.
