Welcome (Back) to Kamikazeland
Here’s the promised quiz / meme / bit-o-gayness. Better late than never, right? (I’ll be saying that a lot this week, I’m sure.)
Three names you go by:
-- Hey, Asshole
-- Mr. Sand-in-his-Vagina
Three screennames you have:
-- divebomber71 (AOL IM)
-- Um . . .
Three things you like about yourself:
-- Despite my shortcomings, I seem to have gotten something right with my daughter.
-- Geez, this is hard.
-- That’s about it.
Three things you hate/dislike about yourself:
-- My lack of focus / motivation smothers any creative spark I have. I’m where good ideas go to die, apparently.
-- I’m always losing my patience in ugly, stabbing-bedroom-doors-with-a-screwdriver ways.
-- My pants are getting tight, and there are two unopened containers of egg nog in the fridge.
Three parts of your heritage:
-- “Scotch, Dutch, and Welsh” is what my mom used to tell me.
-- Mom was born in New Zealand to an American woman and a New Zealand Air Force pilot, so I guess that makes me one-quarter New Zealand-ish (or is it New Zealand-ese, or just Kiwi?).
-- Reportedly, I’m one-sixteenth Native-American.
Three things that scare you:
-- another four years of Dubya
-- having some horrible tragedy befall my wife and/or daughter
Three of your everyday essentials:

-- this web-comic (weekdays)
-- a good poop? (look, this is hard stuff . . . not my poop)
Three things you are wearing right now:
-- In true metrosexual fashion, I’m wearing a baby-blue short-sleeved button down from Banana Republic; it matches my eyes.
-- Some fading, years-old navy blue khakis from Gap.
-- Fake-leather shoes from Target.
Three of your favorite bands/artists (at the moment; not counting mine or the wife’s):
-- The Stills
-- Er . . . I’m at a loss. Mono?
Three things you want to try in the next 12 months:
-- Making curry once a week.
-- Putting together a poetry chapbook and/or another poetry journal.
-- Taking lots and lots of cool pictures.
Three things you want in a relationship (love is a given):
-- stimulation (of all kinds)
-- boobs (and allowing me to touch them)
Two truths and a lie (random order):

-- I’ll go with THB on “get out of debt.”
Three careers you're considering:

-- non-technical editing
-- some other kind of editing . . . or indie record-company baron
Three places you want to go on vacation:

I think everyone else has taken it. Haven’t you, The Internet?
