Procrastination is KING


Questions from antheia:

1. Given your choice of LP, CD or MP3, how would you choose to listen to your music?

MP3s. I love CDs if they have good liner notes and lyrics, but overall the portable MP3 player is the greatest invention to come to music since the advent of the radio.

2. What is your dream concert (artist, venue, etc.)?

Hmm, hard to say. Maybe Cory Branan, Lucinda Williams and The New Tragedies at a small club with 25 of my friends and free drinks?

3. Which do you prefer your men in: suits or jeans & tshirts?

I appreciate a good suit and man who can wear one well, but it’s definitely jeans for me. Fitted, worn, low-slung jeans. Mmmm.

4. What is the best thing about the summer?

The temperature. The thunderstorms. The sun. Not having to wear very much clothing.

5. What do you want your next tattoo to be of, if you want another?

It’s already in the works. Sort of an arm band of silhouettes of birds in flight. Hard to explain, but of course I’ll post pictures when I get around to getting it.

And so, you can play too:


1. Leave me a comment saying anything random, like your favorite lyric to your current favorite song. Or your favorite kind of sandwich. Something random. Whatever you like.
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better. [You know me, this will probably take me a week or a month or forever. Or maybe be immediate. Depends on my current procrastination rating.]
3. You update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you ask them five questions.

    And I can just imagine what kinds of questions you would ask. *giggle*

    the last shred
    of my broken head
    for the songs you say
    and the words you sing.

    Who do you love, child? I said: Who, baby, who do you love?

    5. What is your peffect, ideal dream job?

    Yes, barefoot and possibly shirtless. And of course you’re in the invite list, although be warned, it’s the kind of show where i might get drunk and try and get you to make out with me. I’m determined to see you by the end of summer, hopefully with a new tattoo on me.

  8. 1. Given the necessary funds and no concern about work, if you could live in any city, anywhere in the world, where would it be?
    2. Top 5 favorite bands now, and top 5 from when you were 21 years old.

    5. Only one color of toenail polish for the rest of your life, what would it be?

  9. I totally want on that invite list too.

  10. You, sir, will be my date. We’ll wear coordinated outfits. It’ll be great because I know you won’t mind when I get drunk and make out with smonsterbite.

  11. And of course you’re in the invite list, although be warned, it’s the kind of show where i might get drunk and try and get you to make out with me.


  12. Awesome. Hit me with questions?

  13. 1. Describe your ideal man (the one you are definitely not going to be looking for if my metaphor holds).
    2. If you had to choose only 5 films to watch over and over, what would they be?
    3. What’s your handwriting like?
    4. How many licks does it take?
    5. What kind of person do you hope to be when you are 50?

  14. Sticky sticky uhn uhn

  15. it’s the kind of show where i might get drunk and try and get you to make out with me.

    (totally volunteers to be the bartender for this party)

    I use my motorcycle icon for you, in hopes of questions. Yes!

  16. 1. We have 8 days, $4768.00 and a motorcycle, what would we do?
    2. Three books you absolutely, positively could not live with out.
    3. Describe your perfect outfit for everyday wear if there were no constraints from weather, work or other outside considerations.
    4. True or false: Tears don’t matter much?
    5. Uppers or downers?

  17. like a baby stillborn, like a beast with his horn I have torn everyone who reached out to me

  18. I watched the A&E miniseries of Pride and Prejudice today, for probably the 20th time. If not more (it’s not like I count–but I’ve watched it a LOT). I’ve also read the book–or listened to the audiobook–countless times. I’d quote you a line, but my drug- and lack of sleep-muddled brain will only come up with the extremely obvious right now.

  19. 1. You mean the good-looking, intelligent, guitar/violin/piano player who loves indie movies and music and loves me exactly how I am? That one?

    2. Almost Famous (Director’s Cut); The Aviator; Angels in America; Black Snake Moan and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

    3. Uh, depends. Sometimes it’s crap, sometimes it’s nice. I will post a follow-up comment soonish to show you a sample.

    4. Depends on what one is trying to get to the center of.

    5. I hope to be the same kind of person I am now, just wealthier and more famous.

  20. 1. I concur. I also love that you don’t have to buy entire albums for only one or two songs that you enjoy.

    2. That sounds spectacular. And not at all surprising. 😉

    5. I am equally unsurprised by this. I can’t wait to see it.
