Trois Choses

I've been requested to add to the "Three Things" postings by Melissa, so here goes:

Three names you go by: Dennis and, on occasion, Sparky. There are no others.

Three screen names you have: On Messenger, it's my email address.

(So far this "Three Things" trend isn't living up to its name with me, is it?)

Three things you like about yourself: My ability to laugh (mostly at myself), my compassion for (most) others, and my ambitions

Three things you dislike about yourself: I can be too hard on myself. I can hold a killer grudge. And I think I might have ADD or something, because my concentration skills suck.

Three parts of your heritage: Chinese and American. (There goes the "three" thing again.)

Three things that scare you: Overdependence or overreliance on others (see my previous post on this topic). Unexpected loud noises. And you know when you open a door at the exact time someone on the other side of it is getting ready to do the same? That always makes me jump. And then laugh.

Three of your everyday essentials: A good book at all times. My jukie. And a man-bag. (No, dammit, it's not a purse!)

Three things you are wearing right now: A dress shirt, black corduroy pants, and high top shoes.

Three of your favorite bands/artists (at the moment): Martina McBride, Olivia Newton-John (and this link too), Eminem. I know, I know, I have a wide variety of musical tastes.

Three of your favorite songs at present: I have way too many. Tell you what, I'm starting a project that I picked up from Republic of T. which should answer this question within the next few posts.

Three new things you want to try in the next 12 months: Learn another language (I'm thinking either Japanese, Korean, or German). Learn to play either the guitar or a keyboard. Rock climbing, perhaps?

Three things you want in a relationship (love is a given): Chemistry, comfort with each other, that sense of contentment.

Two truths and a lie: I skipped a grade in school, I once ran a marathon (back in the day), and the muscle structure under my face is strangely fucked up.

Three physical things about the opposite sex (or same) that appeal to you: Eyes, smile, hair.

Three things you just can’t do: Throw out my two favorite childhood stuffed animals. Vote for a right-wing Republican. Flirt (properly).

Three of your favorite hobbies: Reading, writing and wasting time on the internet.

Three things you want to do really badly right now: Have some lunch, get out of here (I'm in the office on Dec. 23!), veg out.

Three careers you’re considering: I assume this means other than one I already have. Teacher, jury consultant, carefree man about the world. Okay, I know the last one isn't a career at all, but as long as we're dreaming....

Three places you want to go on vacation: Europe, Mexico and South America

Three kids’ names: Girls – Aimee (possibly the most beautiful name I can come up with for a child), Olivia (tee hee), and Lynda (as in Carter); Boys – Dylan, Trevor, and Jason.

Three things you want to do before you die: Drive across the United States. See more of the world. And yes, jump out of a perfectly good airplane.

Three people you want to take this quiz: I honestly don't think I know that many people who read this blog who haven't already done this. Hahaha.

This project was much harder than I thought it was going to be.

Me too! Sheer comedy.

Melissa - I seriously think the sheer adrenaline rush that comes with jumping out of a plane would be the most AWESOME feeling.

Peter - Seriously! I think that guys I talk to (whether or not I'm flirting) tend to start sweating, like, "Uh oh, he's talking to me. This is weird. How do I politely excuse myself from this conversation?".... I think it's happened several times in past month now.
