Getting To Know Me – E. Edition

Cody posted his and he got the idea from Hunger for Knowledge who got it from My Little Book Blog. I decided to go far afield and add more than a dash of tongue in cheek.

 

  1. 1. Are you named after anyone?

    My father was Eddie Pete, so… kinda.

 

Side note: I’ve never met a guy named Ed, Eddie, or Edward that I didn’t automatically dislike.

2. When was the last time you cried?

While reading Palisades Park, which was about a week ago.

3. Do you have kids?

 

Two. A ten-year-old daughter and a three-year-old son. Autumn and Chris.

  1. 4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?

 

Nope. I’m an asshole and an egotist. I’m mouthy and arrogant. I’m always right. Did I mention I’m never wrong? Because I’m not.

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

See previous answer.

6. Will you ever bungee-jump? 

HAHAHAHAHAHA! More like bungee-die. I weigh 350 pounds. I’ve not found a tower operator that didn’t laugh at me when I approached his station.

7. What’s your favorite cereal?

Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Did I mention I’m fat? That cereal is why.

8. What’s the first thing you notice about people?

Their sexual organs. Unless they have clothes on, then I notice their smell. Doesn’t matter what you’re wearing, if you smell like bean dip and cabbage you might as well dress in garbage bags and Ugg boots.

9. What is your eye colour?

Changes with the lighting, but I have gray eyes that shift from blue to almost transparent. The darker the environment, the bluer my eyes. The brighter, the more see-through. This is how I snagged my wife. That, and I’m super fucking funny. Seriously, have you met me? I’m a goddamn riot.

10. Scary movie or happy endings?

Scary movie. Fuck happy endings. I’m a married man, and massages are expensive.

  1. 11. Favorite smells?

    A woman and old books. Both. At the same time.

    12. Summer or winter?

 

Winter. Fuck the sun.

13. Computer or television?

 

Computer. Cable’s expensive, and Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu, and Crackle are things that exist. You can sign up for all of those and still spend less than you would for basic cable and have more to watch when you want to watch it.

 

(I am not sponsored by any of the aforementioned companies, but I’m not opposed to receiving checks for my services) 

14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?

 

If you consider home the place I was born, which was California, I suppose the farthest I’ve been is Maine.

15. Do you have any special talents?

 

I play percussive guitar. If you don’t know what that is, search it on YouTube. Yeah, I can do that.

  1. 16. Where were you born?

 

I don’t like repeating myself.

  1. 17. What are your hobbies?

 

Minecraft while listening to audio books. Cover and poster design. Socializing on book sites.

18. Do you have any pets?

 

Two dogs. Ash and Coal. Or, as they are more commonly referred to, My Goombas.

19. Favorite movie?

 

Howard the Duck. No. I’m not joking. Not even a little. 

20. Do you have any siblings?

 

Four. I only actually know three of them, and only speak to two of them. They are all half-sisters from my parents’ previous marriages.

 

  1. 21. What do you want to be when you grow up?

 

An adult, but I’m putting that off until I die.

 

 

 

To make it easier for everyone else who wants to play, here’s a copy of the questions without the answers. Cheers!
