Friday 5 - Let's Get Personal (or Not)

Friday 5 time! I skipped last week’s because I didn’t have any good answers to the questions, but this week I think I can do it!
  1. What are you on?
On…a chair, which is on a floor, which is in a house in a small farm town in Illinois, in the United States of America, on the planet Earth!
I’m on the New Madrid Seismic Zone.  It's a prolific source for intraplate earthquakes!

I actually live a bit north of the main fault zone.

I’m on the fourth decade of my current incarnation.
I’m on caffeine and nicotine, having had most of a large mug of coffee and four drags off an American Spirit cigarette - the brown box organic tobacco, thank you! Only the finest, most natural poison for me!
  1. What are you hiding?
What, me? Nothing! Well, maybe I’m hiding how terrified I am that I won’t be able to find a decent massage therapy job close to my new home. Because I don’t want to have all the life sucked out of me by constant driving just to make money. I want to have time and energy to write my stories.

Sh. I'm writing stories in my Ya Ya hat.

  1. Who gets it when you go?
Gets what? Where am I going? Don’t touch my stuff!

Get away from my coffee and nicotine!
  1. What’s in your wallet?
All the usual wallet-type junk: Driver’s license, vehicle and medical insurance cards, bank cards, business cards, coins, a million receipts, and fortune cookie slips.

  1. What do you waste?
I won’t say time…I don’t really feel I truly waste time…but I do waste energy sometimes, worrying about things I can’t change, or feeling upset over something some assclown did. When I obsess over assclown activities, it’s the assclown that wins. So I try not to do that, as much as possible. That is energy wasted, in my opinion, and it’s my own fault.

I also occasionally waste money on food and drink bought in gas stations and other convenience places. Like the $26 I dropped at the concessions counter at the movies with DB and Dexter this past Tuesday. Normally I insist on going to Walgreens to get the candy before we go to the theater, but we were running late on time (it was either make the 12:00 show or we didn't get to see The World's End that day). I could've said no candy (then the total would've been $18.50 for the large popcorn and two medium drinks), but I didn't.

Because Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

  1. YaYa hats. I am looking forward to when we make ours. I think it will help me think. :)

    Going to try to take the boy to see TWE on Sunday. Can't wait.
