Andy-ology?

1) What is your salad dressing of choice?
I'm not terrifically snobby about this, so I feel that any salad dressing that's well paired with the meal is pretty good. Balasamic vinagrette, cesaer, ranch, italian, to say nothing of the more interesting kinds.

2) What is your favorite sit-down restaurant?
I love the food at Figlio's on the KC Plaza. That's my favorite "sunny day in Spring" restaurant.
Korma Sutra is my favorite "Oh, look! It's snowing outside" restaurant.
Fuddrucker's is my "Andy, I have to unintentionally spill a secret" restaurant. Or so it would seem, from past events.
Minsky's is my favorite "my family came to Kansas City for pizza" restaurant.
Carl's Drive-In is my "nothing but root beer will do" restaurant.

3) What food could you eat for 2 weeks straight and not get sick of it?
As I've never gotten anywhere near this, I don't know. My gut says I'd get sick of anything for two weeks.

4) What are your pizza toppings of choice?
My one above all is pepperoni.

5) What do you like to put on your toast?
Butter and some fruit jam.

6) How many televisions are in your house?
I've just got the one, but it's all I need.

7) What color cell phone do you have?
It's black and chrome.

8) Are you right-handed or left-handed?
Right-handed. I lack the precision motor control to be left-handed. Strangely, the "handedness" preference is one of the first things I notice about people, though I never bother to remember it. That means I'm continually noticing it.

9) Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
Most people's answer includes wisdom teeth, but I never had any to begin with. Doing a quick visual survey, I don't think I ever have.

10) What is the last heavy item you lifted?
I can't think of the most recent, but I have haunted dreams about a certain white corner cabinet I helped some friends move.

11) Have you ever been knocked unconscious?
I have never had an external force render me senseless.

12) If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
No. In the strongest terms, no. At the moment that knowledge was acquired, my life would revolve only around the preoocupation of that fact. I would become a whirlwind of regrets for all the things I'd never be able to accomplish in the time remaining. In all likelihood, my life would cease to function on the day I found out.

13) If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
If given the opportunity, I don't think I'd change it; Andy is comfortable for who I am.

14) Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
Certainly. I love hot sauce, and while it's not that great by itself, there's the matter of the thousand dollars.

15) How many pairs of flip flops do you own?
None.

16) What’s your goal for the year?
Wrapping up my degree and finding employment.

17) Last person you talked to?
I spoke to Helen at the airport and we agreed that we'd see each other next on Saturday at the graduation.

18) Last person you hugged?
Most likely a half-drunk Scotsman.

19) Favorite Season?
Winter

20) Favorite Holiday?
Since I'm not much of a celebrant, it was whatever ones were paid vacation.

21) Favorite day of the week?
At this time, it's Wedesdays. For some reason. [shrug]

22) Favorite Month?
I like December. So much so, that I wish it was three times as long, somehow.

23) First place you went this morning?
To the bathroom. Outside of my house is still up for grabs, as I haven't left yet.

24) What's the last movie you saw?
It was either Ken Burn's "Mark Twain" documentary, or "P.S., I Love You".

25) Do you smile often?
Often without apparent reason!

26) Do you always answer your phone?
No, and I'm not sure I'd like a person very much who did.

27) It's four in the morning and you get a text message, who is it?
A broken spam.

28) If you could change your eye color what would it be?
I don't really know. My eye color doesn't really effect my life and I seldom see them. Which is a bit odd, considering how much we see other peoples'.

29) What flavor drink do you get at Sonic?
I have been to Sonic exactly twice in my entire life, and neither of them was within the last five years. So, I have no idea what I had either time.

30) Have you ever had a pet fish?
My family had fish at various times when I was growing up, but I don't recall any of them as pets. Mostly, the fishtank was just a fascinating knick-knack.

31) Favorite Christmas song?
I love the minor-key carols, like "The Coventry Carol".

32) What's on your wish list for your birthday?
Sooner or later, I'll need a new car, a new instrument, and a new computer.

33) Can you do push ups?
Yes, though I find the scenery boring.

34) Can you do a chin up?
I have never in my life done a chin-up, though I haven't attempted it in years.

35) Does the future make you more nervous or excited?
Excited. There's little in my future to make me nervous, thinking in terms of survival.

36) Do you have any saved texts?
I do have all the text messages I've received in the last five years saved. They total four and the only reason I keep them is to show them off if anyone asks.

37) Ever been in a car wreck?
No.

38) Do you have an accent?
My friend from Germany once said I had almost perfect unaccented English. However, we were living in Chicago at the time, so it's a bit like being the tallest person at a short actor's convention.

39) What is the last song to make you cry?
I can't recall the most recent, so here's one from some other time: Gethsemane, from Jesus Christ Superstar

40) Plans tonight?
Laundry!

41) Have you ever felt like you hit rock bottom?
This is not something I've ever thought about before and it may end up being a future entry. Short answer: no.

42) Name 3 things you bought yesterday?
Cereal. Food at the Charlotte airport. $48 worth of parking at KCI.

43) Have you ever been given roses?
No. By my memory, I have never received any gifts of flowers.

44) Current hate right now?
I'm rather frustrated that people can be in close proximity and share nothing while still expecting to develop a friendship. Just doesn't work that way.

45) Met someone who changed your life?
Almost everyone I know makes ripples in the pond.

46) How did you bring in the New Year?
I can't recall, but the boring kind.

47) What song represents you?
I don't think of music in this way. The Hokey Pokey? Under the Sea? Nothing Else Matters?

48) Name three people who might complete this?
I don't have any oracular skills, but I do know three friends who've already completed it.

49) What were you doing at 12 AM last night?
Working on a blog entry that wasn't this one.

50) What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up?
Really chilly, turn off the fan.
