Because It's All About Us -- Answers

Props to everyone who answered my polls, especially those who did all 35 of the flist questions!  Fantastic.

  • If SPK ever has a daughter, he would like to name her... LYSISTRATA.  After a Greek heroine, though Athena would also be cool.
  • If SPK ever has a son, he would like to name him... BENJAMIN.
  • SPK would like to have how many kids? 3-4.  Everyone seemed to know I want at least 2!  Funny.
  • SPK does which of these entertaining things?  MIMING GAGS.  Why are people thinking I cough on others for fun?
  • Is SPK a virgin? HELL, YEAH! Yeah, that whole "waiting until marriage" thing has its drawbacks sometimes.
  • Is SPK intelligent? YES or LIKE DOLPHINS would both be acceptable.
  • Is SPK handsome? *grimace*  I knew I would get the ol' ego bruised on this one, but I am interested to know what people might think when they see my online profiles.  If you guys think I'm just alright and you actually know me to some extent, I seem to be at a disadvantage when random strangers check me out. *sigh*
  • Is SPK funny? Interesting.  I thought more people would pick "affirmative" or "hysterical" rather than just the more neutral "I think so."  If I don't have the looks and the brains are so-so, I really do need to be funny!
  • SPK watches which of these?  ALL OF THE ABOVE.
  • SPK owns which of these movies?  This was harder: Groundhog Day, Indiana Jones & the Temple of Doom, Dave, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, What About Bob?  I think I've seen all of them, though, with the exception of Boyz in Da Hood.

We are still a little undecided about names for the baby. Benjamin is #2 on the boys list, but I'm not sure that Lysistrata makes the girls list. We think Marc Daniel for a boy and Ava Michele for a girl...but we're still open to suggestions.

Re: Possibilities

There's nothing wrong with Steven, but we want to give our kids totally original names...something that no one we know has. Both of our families being old school Italian, a lot of people are named after relatives. Do you know how many Joes, Johns, and Franks we are related to?

You know, even though you've only been posting polls, watching your mood icons tells an interesting story...moody...blah...cynical, and now aggravated. Something tells me all is not well in spk land.

A land in peril

Well, I had a bad headache starting on Monday and ended up not going into work on Tues. Didn't feel like actually posting about how I was feeling, but it did translate into the moods! Just aggravated last night because I've only gotten a couple hits from Match and Yahoo when I've spent a good chunk of money on them. Seeing how I'm only nominally funny and good-looking made me wonder why I bother. *sigh* Just one of those weeks, I guess. Hope you're doing OK and enjoying your new place! :)

I don't think I did very well and I didn't even try to answer all the questions :-(

Oh well, I still learned something :-)

I thought that this was way fun, even though I only knew the answers to two of them for certain. I told some of my friends that other people thought I studied to be a nuclear technician and they laughed their asses off. That's probably because they know that I am challenged when it comes to easy things like cooking and, occasionally, putting gas in my car.

Thank goodness the diesel pump is bigger than a regular one and won't fit into the hole :)

*LOL* Yeah, that thought made me laugh when it popped into my head. You're certainly smart, but "nuclear technician" is a bit of a stretch for either of us! Glad you had fun with it. :)
