Don't work in a cubicle.

Bought a pocket knife and a tee shirt at Mast General Store in Waynesville, NC.

Granny's Chicken Palace fried chicken, red beans and rice, made from scratch mac and cheese, a good Cabernet, and Pisgah Inn key lime pie.

10) You're having a conversation with someone who keeps interrupting you. How do you handle it?
Stop talking.

11) Bonus question: Whatcha wearin'?
Work uniform. Makes me feel like I'm in a circa 1950's Industrial Safety Movie about electrical shock or something.

The Doors - The Ghost Song

Awake.
Shake dreams from your hair
My pretty child, my sweet one.
Choose the day and choose the sign of your day
The day’s divinity
First thing you see.

A vast radiant beach in a cool jeweled moon
Couples naked race down by it’s quiet side
And we laugh like soft, mad children
Smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy
The music and voices are all around us.

Choose they croon the ancient ones
The time has come again
Choose now, they croon
Beneath the moon
Beside an ancient lake

Enter again the sweet forest
Enter the hot dream
Come with us
Everything is broken up and dances.

6) If you could change only one thing about the place you live in, what would it be?
you mean the house? i'd remove my parents from it into a nice place, or myself of course

Re: Things we must know... a question thread

1) How many pairs of black shoes do you own?
*far* too many... I'm embarrassed to say. Possibly even more than Frieda...

2) In your office or cubicle, do you face the door, the wall, or some other place? How do you feel about that?
I face the corner of a cube with my back to the opening. I really dislike this position - hate people coming up behind.

3) Describe your "happy" place, the place you go when you're stressed and you can't go anywhere so you close your eyes...
Lying on the beach, blue sky, puffy clouds, toes in the sand, sound of waves and a quiet radio, scent of sea and Bain de Soleil...

4) What's the last thing you did to treat yourself?
Had dessert for dinner (brown sugar apple cake heated with vanilla ice cream...)

5) Do you have a song stuck in your head? Post some lyrics...
for some reason:

She makes me think of lightnin' in skies
(Her name) She's sexy!!
How else is god s'possed to write
(Her name) She's sexy!!
Move, she wants to move
But you're hoggin her, you're guarding her
She wants to move (she wants to move)
She wants to move (she wants to move)
But you're hogging her, you're guarding her (damn!)

Mister! Look at your girl, she loves it!
(Look at her) I can see it in her eyes
She (come here babe) hopes this'll last forever, Hey!!

Her off beat dance makes me fantasize
(Her curves) She's sexy!!
Her ass is a spaceship I want to ride {*sound effect*}
(Her ass) She's sexy!!
Move, she wants to move
But you're hogging her, you're guarding her
She wants to move (she wants to move)
She wants to move (she wants to move)
But you're hogging her, you're guarding her (beat it!!)

Mister! Look at your girl, she loves it!
(I know you love it girl) I can see it in her eyes
She - hopes this'll last forever (hey) Hey!!

(She wants it) I can see it in her eyes
She - hopes this'll last forever, Hey!!

Somebody get us some water in here!
Cause it's HOT!

N.E.R.D. "She Wants to Move"


6) If you could change only one thing about the place you live in, what would it be?
Gah. Only one thing. I guess I'd either get a dishwasher, or I'd want it to be two stories so I can have my bedroom upstairs and not on the bottom floor with a staircase going by it...

7) You're organizing a Zemonkey field trip. Where are we going, and will there be snacks?
Cheesecake Factory, Marina del Rey... we're gonna have cocktails, then order one of everything off the menu!!! Then we'll go for a walk on the beach

8) What do you usually say when someone sneezes? "bless you!"

9) (repeat question - but there are lots of newbies...) You've been very very bad, got caught, put in jail, and now you're down to your last meal. What do you ask for?
Grilled salmon, orecchiete and fresh tomato in an alfredo sauce, steamed broccoli rabe tossed with a balsamic-cream reduction, fresh ripe strawberries. A really good Amarone della Valpolicella with the meal and one of Market City Caffe's cappucinos at the end.

10) You're having a conversation with someone who keeps interrupting you. How do you handle it? First I wait until they wind down, don't say anything for a couple of seconds, then try to say what I need to say. If they interrupt again, I usually say, "Wait a second!" and look daggers at 'em... then finish.

11) Bonus question: Whatcha wearin'?
Black satin top, long black stretchy skirt, black sandals, black ones

1) How many pairs of black shoes do you own?

Shoes come in other colors? Like 95% of my shoes are black. And I have kazillions of them. Mostly because I dance and need every kind imaginable.

2) In your office or cubicle, do you face the door, the wall, or some other place? How do you feel about that?

I have an entire office to myself. The problem is that the office consists of an office and lab in one. Therefore if we get something nasty in the lab….my whole office gets stinky and gross….like yesterday. EWWWWWW.

3) Describe your "happy" place, the place you go when you're stressed and you can't go anywhere so you close your eyes...

I simmer in my madness usually.

4) What's the last thing you did to treat yourself?

Got my nails and toes done at a nice place where the ladies speak English. Then I went and bought super yummy slightly pricy shampoo and conditioner. I never buy anything “girly” so it was pretty special.

5) Do you have a song stuck in your head? Post some lyrics...

No. Work sucks the life out.

6) If you could change only one thing about the place you live in, what would it be?

It would have rocket booster that make it take off like an intergalactic motorhome.

7) You're organizing a Zemonkey field trip. Where are we going, and will there be snacks?

We would go to Vegas and I would bring snacks that balance well with the mass amounts of drinking that would be going on. For example: Cheese balls, crackers, string cheese, bananas, orange juice, lots of water, beef jerky, licorice, etc.

8) What do you usually say when someone sneezes?

Jezus, are you alright?

9) (repeat question - but there are lots of newbies...) You've been very very bad, got caught, put in jail, and now you're down to your last meal. What do you ask for?

How little faith you have in me! I would have escaped by now and be spending all the loot I had hidden before they caught me.

10) You're having a conversation with someone who keeps interrupting you. How do you handle it?

Start gazing off into space and squinting my eyes…blurry, not blurry, blurry, not blurry

11) Bonus question: Whatcha wearin'?

Red tank top, button up sweater, black skirt, black heels, and my lab coat.

1) How many pairs of black shoes do you own?

3 & a pair of sandals. Do they count as shoes?

2) In your office or cubicle, do you face the door, the wall, or some other place? How do you feel about that?

I face the wall, but there's a big open space between myself & the wall. I actually like it, 'cuz I would absolutely HATE to have someone sitting behind me.

3) Describe your "happy" place, the place you go when you're stressed and you can't go anywhere so you close your eyes...

The woods or oceanside... where ever I'm in the mood for.

4) What's the last thing you did to treat yourself?

Bought a boston creme donut from Dunkin Donuts...

5) Do you have a song stuck in your head? Post some lyrics...

"The very worst part of you
The very worst part of you
Is me" (Lying From You, Linkin Park)

6) If you could change only one thing about the place you live in, what would it be?

No more frigging mice in the damn ceiling!!! Oh, & more storage space too.

7) You're organizing a Zemonkey field trip. Where are we going, and will there be snacks?

Woodstock, NY (one of my favorite hangouts), & of course there will be snacks & beverages for the bus trip there. Oh, and a potty on the bus too, as they are in short supply in town.

8) What do you usually say when someone sneezes?

Bless you.

9) (repeat question - but there are lots of newbies...) You've been very very bad, got caught, put in jail, and now you're down to your last meal. What do you ask for?

Cracked peppercorn filet mignon w/a lobster tail. Steamed veggies, small garden salad. Drooling just thinking about it.

10) You're having a conversation with someone who keeps interrupting you. How do you handle it?

I'm too polite to interrupt, unless it's about a topic that I get pissed off about.

11) Bonus question: Whatcha wearin'?

AmJam 2001 tshirt, blue jeans, black socks w/zebras...

Hmm... I just thought of something... ZEbra...

Kinda makes you think, doesn't it?

1) How many pairs of black shoes do you own?

1; I just bought them today. I have to go back to the stupid store because they didn’t give me the shoelaces to the other shoe.

2) In your office or cubicle, do you face the door, the wall, or some other place? How do you feel about that?

I face a wall with a fluctuating population of spiders and a few posters. I would probably be more productive if it was more airy and less stuffy, but I really don’t care.

3) Describe your "happy" place, the place you go when you're stressed and you can't go anywhere so you close your eyes...

There isn’t one place. And it depends on a lot of things.

4) What's the last thing you did to treat yourself?

I got tickets to the upcoming “Capital Steps” show, which will be the first live performance I’ve ever attended.

5) Do you have a song stuck in your head? Post some lyrics...

My funny valentine,
sweet comic valentine,
you make me smile
with my heart.
Your looks are laughable,
unphotographable,
yet you’re my favorite
piece of art…

6) If you could change only one thing about the place you live in, what would it be?

The constant, idiotic, unneccesary, loud bickering.

7) You're organizing a Zemonkey field trip. Where are we going, and will there be snacks?

Downtown Santa Barbara. There are plenty of places to eat there.

8) What do you usually say when someone sneezes?

bless you.

9) (repeat question - but there are lots of newbies...) You've been very very bad, got caught, put in jail, and now you're down to your last meal. What do you ask for?

a presidential pardon.

10) You're having a conversation with someone who keeps interrupting you. How do you handle it?

Depends on who it is and why they’re interrupting. If I’m Sean Hannity, I just say “Hey, I’m going to turn your microphone down if you don’t stop talking, you lousy communist!”

11) Bonus question: Whatcha wearin'?

New black pants, a stylish patterned black long-sleeve shirt over a white “wifebeater” style undershirt, white socks, Carolina Blue Nike Air Zoom Turbine™ shoes, Cheap black plastic/rubber digital watch, old glasses.
