Five Questions To Answer on a Friday for July 2, 2004
Now Playing: 'Loving Wings' (live from The Gorge, day one) - DMB
For each question, pick one of the options & say why you made your choice. Feel free to waffle between the two choices, or to not choose either.

1. Would you rather earn more money or have more time off?
While I'd love the time off, I need the money, so earn more money. And work really isn't bad when everybody's acting decent.

2. Which is more important, the ends or the means?
The means. If you're getting to the ends in bad ways, then it's no good.

3. How are our personalities formed, by nature or through nurture?
Both. More by nature, I'd say.

4. Who do you feel closer to, your mother or your father?
Hmm. I guess my father.

5. Why do you answer these silly questions, out of boredom or out of love of introspection?
Both, really. :)

Five Questions To Answer On A Friday For June 25, 2004
All "Friday Five" questions come from here, by the way.

2. What's the nicest thing you've done for someone else?
Oy, I don't know.

3. What one thing do you wish you had done?
Used my head more often.

4. What is your biggest regret?
Not using my head more often.

5. What is your greatest accomplishment?
I've made it to 23 and a half without making any real lifelong enemies, that's pretty impressive.

Five Questions To Answer On A Friday for June 18, 2004
1. What is the creepiest everyday object you know?
The new blender at the bookstore reminds me of something from 2094.

2. What's the most useful everyday item?

3. What's the most useless everday item?
Hmm. Those little turnstiles you walk through that count people. Just hire a person to count, geez. That'll help the homeless situation.

4. If the power was out for 24 hours, what would you do?
Sleep a lot. Call a few people. Cruise.

5. If you had to have one item you use everyday surgically attached to you, what would it be, and why?
A stapler, just so I could go around saying, "Look at me, I'm crazy Stapler Head Guy! Now gimme some candy!" (SNL)

Five Celebrity Crushes: The Explanations
"Nobody wants to see a guy named Couscous. You need a big, beefy name."

I had so much more planned for this feature, but... alas, not so much now. Quick and easy.

1. Norah. First, look at her. She's normal looking. When she's not doing press stuff, she's got her hair back and glasses on and still looks adorable. She's not waif thin. And her voice... wow.

2. Natalie. She speaks her mind. She was the original music crush of a few years ago because, if I recall, she was "short and spunky." Still is.

3. Michelle. She's cute. She seems like she'd be really down to earth and easy to talk to.

4. Alyson. Hello, Willow!

5. Britney. Granted, nowadays she's fallen from both grace and Andy crush land. Downhill, meet Britney. But she was cute at one time, including in the pictured moment.

Five Images Found via a Google Image Search for "Andy"
A man and his ass (insert comment about that being my favorite body part here).

Oy. Is he a vampire?

That is quite frankly the scariest Raggedy Andy ever.

Okay, I could only find three good ones (well, besides the two of a dominatrix apparently whipping a guy named Andy). The last name!

Ah yes, the longlost relative who created the Periodic Table.

Oh yeah. Play that jazz and that cowboy stuff.

Five Favorite T-Shirts
Now Playing: Disc two of the Essential Springsteen
(in no particular order - Hurricane shirt excluded due to no photo available)

1: Free Natalie

This would be a shirt given out at on stops during the last Dixie Chicks tour ("Top of the World Tour"? I've forgotten already) to crew members and such. I snagged mine off of eBay. The front is a reference to all of the backlash of Natalie saying what she did about Senor Bush. The back has been on the last two or three Chicks tour crew shirts.

2: Folk it up!

This is a sentimental favorite. It was given to me as a surprise gift last year, and it's been a favorite shirt ever since. Part of that's because of who gave it to me, and part of that is because it's a freakin' cool shirt. Even the spot where I spilled bleach on it doesn't take away from it.

3: Ralph Wiggum's sayings

I don't wear this one much, just because it's black and black shirts are hot. I don't see how the goth crowd does it here in south Georgia. There's Ralph and some of his many sayings. The only thing that would make it cooler would be to have my all-time favorite Ralph quote on it (see my AIM away message most nights when I'm asleep).

4: Yeah buddy!

Brak! Sure, it's Brak. You know what really helps make this a favorite though? It's a dark gray t-shirt. The one who calls herself kosmiccharlie doesn't know it, but I've always been jealous of that grey shirt of hers. (One could make the case that I've been jealous of a few pieces of her clothes, but they shouldn't. :) )


It's no secret that I like SpongeBob. I'm not as into him as I was two years ago, but I still think he's great. It's also no secret that I like big butts (and I cannot lie). It's also no secret that I have this weird taste in really bright t-shirts (neon green, anyone?). This brings the three together into one perfect t-shirt.

Honorable mentions:

Five Questions to Answer on Friday, April 2, 2004 are again being slackers. Therefore, I'm stealing the questions Vicky used. This is the part where you play along... comment here or elsewhere and share answers! It'll be fun!

1. How many houses/apartments have you lived in throughout your life?
Let's see. I started out in an apartment. Then my mom, dad and I moved to a little shack where I had the nightmare about seeing E.T. in the laundry room while talking to my grandmother on the phone. Then we moved to where my dad currently lives. Then I moved out with my mom into this apartment complex into a two-bedroom apartment. Then a stepdad was added (and sisters quickly after that) and we moved within the complex to a three-bedroom apartment. Then we moved to the house they all now live in. Then I more or less moved to the dreadful Union Street apartment, seeing as how I went months without actually sleeping at the family house and all. Then I moved with said apartment resident to the apartment I now call my own. To tally: five apartments and three houses. So eight.

2. Which was your favorite and why?
Probably this one. Good memories from sharing it, and it's great on my own as well.

3. Do you find moving house more exciting or stressful? Why?
I love it. I'm crazy. It's fun to pack stuff up and discover stuff you've thrown in a closet.

4. What's more important, location or price?
Both. I need to be able to afford it, but I want to be safe.

5. What features does your dream house have (pool, spa bath, big yard, etc.)?
I haven't really thought about it.

Five Mighty Beanz (plus a sixth one)
$5.99. That's about what I would spend for lunch on an average Chick-fil-A visit. Today, while on a quest for snack food that didn't involve chocolate at Publix, I finally gave into an urge I've had since October or so. Mighty Beanz.

Mighty Beanz are... well, little plastic toy beans. We received series one at the ol' bookstore back in the fall and they sold very quickly. We've gotten series two in multiple times and they go within the day they come out. We haven't gotten series three or the new Marvel, Pokemon, or Ninja Turtles series yet. I almost bought Turtle ones at Toys 'R' Us the other day. Let's have a look.

That's the package that series two, which Publix has, comes in. I'm not sharing any more of the pictures I actually took, because they look worse and worse as they go on. There's the one you can see in the display there, plus five more mystery ones. Basically, it's like buying baseball cards... you don't know what you're getting. Well, except that you're spending money on plastic beans.

Since this is the Five by Five and all, let's get to the actual number part. Well, there's six, but pretend like it's five. Here are my BEANZ!!!!

1. Bruiser Bean - Bean #64, of the "High School Team." This is a common "rookie team" bean. Basically, he's your standard high school bully, except he looks about 45.

2. Bad Breath Bean - This would be #85 of the "Monster Team." Well, bad breath can be a monster. This is an "advanced team" bean, which is I guess part of the medium difficulty level to get.

3. Coach Bean - Ol' Coach is #71 of the "Basketball Team." He's another rookie level bean. He looks like no coach I've ever had, but all of the coaches I've had since middle school were female. And come to think of it, I kinda miss that fitness walking coach that I haven't thought of since I left GSU. Homina, homina.

4. Farmer Bean - He's #76 of... get ready... "Farm Team"! This is the one that I could actually see in the package. I thought it was some kind of hillbilly or something. I'm a little disappointed. It actually reminds me of the old prospector on the unaired SNL skit on the "Best of Will Ferrell" DVD. The bean that will from now on be the old prospector is also a rookie bean.

5. Octo-Zen Bean - This weird feller is from the Alien Team and is #102. He's from the "pro team" level, which would equal "hard to get." Sad really, because it's not that cool of a bean.

5.5. Ribbon Dancer Bean - #94 of the "World Games Team", another advanced bean. Who the heck wants a ribbon dancer bean?

And just to give you a look at the beanz that are kinda cool...

I don't remember the official name, but you know they want this to be the Crocodile Hunter. It's from a regular Beanz series.

Elektra here is from the Marvel Beanz. She's about the coolest of the Marvel Beanz, maybe just because she reminds me of Jennifer Garner and I really don't mind that reminder.

Yes! Hippie Beanz! This pair is from the new series three.

This would be Leonardo of the Turtles. It's strange, I don't know many of the characters in this set, because it's based on the newfanged cartoon instead of the one I grew up with.

Coming soon, and I really can't wait, are Simpsons Beanz! Yes! You know I'll buy all of those.

Five Wrestling Gimmicks That I Liked
It's no big secret. From 1991 until when I went off to GSU, I watched professional wrestling religiously. I'm not necessarily ashamed. While there are still a few entertaining personalities (Kurt Angle, Edge & Christian, The Hurricane) left, it's gotten pretty bland nowadays. You know why? No good characters! Look at these guys! They were fun!

1. The Bezerker

Ah yes, the Bezerker. A viking! He came out looking like he does there in action figure form, but he carried a bigass sword and yelled in vikingspeak.

2. Repo Man

Repo Man was great. He did little video skits where he stole cars. He repossessed "Macho Man" Randy Savage's hat once.

3. Shark Boy

Shark Boy is one of those guys who never has really been able to make it into the WWE or the old WCW, but he sharks around the independant federations and has quite the following.

4. Papa Shango

He would set people on fire, make black stuff ooze out of the foreheads... all with his magical shaman voodoo powers. The guy who portrayed Papa Shango would later become The Godfather, a wrestling pimp. That was fun as well.

And the all-time greatest wrestler of all time...


A wrestling mountie! It reeks of Canada! He'd use his little shock stick there and the WWF would insert a little "zzzap" sound everytime. He also sang his own theme song, in a very horrible fashion, which had the best lyrics in the world. "I'm the Mountie! I'm handsome! I'm brave! I'm strong!" I tried to find it online, but couldn't. He went away for a while, but came back as a member of the Quebecers, under his real name Jacques with partner Pierre. Their gimmick?
