A randome list, completed in class.

The phone rings. Who do you want it to be?
I wish my phone would stop ringing.

When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart?
If there is a cart return, probably. I beleive in karam so I think it most appropriate . I hate stores with no cart retrunes - Staples.

In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener?
Is the social company interesting? I find myself more interesting that most.

Do you take compliments well?
I like to think so.

Are you an active person?
Can't sit still.

If abandoned alone in the wilderness, do you survive?
Eagle Scout. Duh.

Do you like to ride horses?

Did you ever go to camp as a kid?
Each & every summer after I turned 8 or so. boy scout camp, church camp, kayaking camp, you name it. I still remember Camp Daniel Boone with clarity. Long walks back to camp, the Friday all-day bar-b-q of boston butts smoking on grills allday. Stupid campfire skits, afraid to take a shower, trying not to go to the bathroom for a week. Summer camp was always such a fun time for me. In the woods, exploring, taking classes on how to do random stuff. I think summer camp may have shaped my late teens as I turned into a raft guide/mtn biking guide for another camp and worked there for three years. We didn't have to do the skits anymore though.

Are you judgmental?
Yes, but I like to think I don't judge people. I probably judge intelligence most. For instance a woman created a property line dispute today whilst I was trying to help a friend build a fence. I think she sat in her house for weeks and just took some kind of strong pillz. She was out of it. I judged her an idiot.

Do you like to pursue or be pursued?
I pursue. But I want to be pursued. Split personality on this.

Use three words to describe yourself right now.
Tired, itchy, bored.

If you had to choose, would you rather be deaf or blind?
This leads me into a diatribe about how thankful I am for my health and senses. I find myself thinking how happy I am to taste something, see a pretty sunset, gree leaves, or hear music on a regular basis. I'd rather not choose which one to lose.

Are you continuing your education?
Yes. Law School. I'm needing to get a real job soon.

Do you know how to shoot a gun?
Yes. I'm personally partial to my deer rifle. I haven't shot it in awhile though.

How often do you read books?
I read stuff everyday but rarely find myself actually reading a good book. I'm afraid to. I get caught up in them, lose sleep, fail to get work done. I wish i have better self discipline in this area so I would read more.

Do you think more about the past, present or future?
I'm a schemer. I usually strat

What is your favorite children's book?
Anything Seuss.

How tall are you?

Where is your ideal house located? I don't know. Funny b/c a friend and I had this conversation recently. My ideal house would be built under my close supervision though.

Wifey as she left to take the MPRE - GOOD LUCK!!

To chick-fil-a then school, then back home b/c i left my computer cord, then back to school. I'll probably make it to lowes today so thats 10 miles aways maybe.

Where is your current pain at?
Happy to report I'm pain free. The shingles rash still itches some but the valtrex has really helped. I know you all make fun of me, but this is now a preventable syndrome that everyone should be aware of b/c antiviral meds really help and the shingles can really destroy your quality of life for longer than you may think.

Do you like mustard?
YES- the best mustard ever was in Oslo Norway where they had this boardwalk by the sea. The stand sold tasty hotdogs and some kind of sweet/tangy mustard that you applied to your hotdog, followed by tasty fried pieces of onion. Affectionately called "onion crunchies" in my house.

Was your mom a cheerleader? No - she was big into 4-H though. Damn she can cook b/c of this. Can my readers back me up?

What's the last letter of your middle name?
"L" - the onle letter of this name our whole family can agree on. Well, the N also. You see, my middle name is NEAL. My grandfather, nor my father for that matter, was not a good speller. My grandmother and grandfather decided to name me after my great uncle, grandmother's brother, Neil. Well, while filling out the birthcertificate, Granddaddy put down NEAL for my father. As uncle Neil was crotchity, I don't know if this was truly accidental or a bit of protest, but none the less, my father's middle name is NEAL and so is mine.

Is anyone mad at or irritated with you right now? I don't think so. Thats a nice thought.

Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
Christmas day. This year will be scattered. or not at all since my brother wants to do giftless christmas, which i'm not a big fan of. I like the tradition. its really the thought that counts. I also like wrapping paper. you don't have to give me anything ridiculous.

What's your favorite preparation for eggs?
Fried, in bacon fat, where you use a spoon to cook the yolkes with hot grease. drain on paper towel. so tasty.

Are you easy to get along with? Casually, yes. I can be opinionated and direct. I think its probably a bit of a challenge to live with me.

What is your favorite time of day? That small snatch of time when you appreciate something for just being. Driving home, a beautiful sky. Smelling something that makes you appreciate life. Its never the same time for me.

Who was your best girlfriend/boyfriend?Was? Was... I like this. I'm a serial friendship type person. I call them "transient friends" I can be great friends with someone then one of us will drop off the map. We'll pick back up when/if we run into each other again. I'm gonna go with Jeff on this one. Jeff is an army ranger instructor. We were inseperable around the third grade, hated each other in 5th, (cause I was plain mean), friends again at age 14 or so due to the boy scouts, he moved to Florida at age 17, (came back to visit, and I didn't even recognize him) back to Ga for community college at 19, off to UGA generally together at 20, he went of to war, twice, I'm still in school, and I'll be his best man when he gets married this summer. Jeff is one of the few people I know I can call on. We've "dated" the same women, worked together installing furniture, gone hunting together, fought like brothers, hiked together, and even bounced at the same seedy bar together.. Jeff was and is by best guy friend.

Who do you hate? Idiots and unnecessarially rude people.

Would ever date your first love again? The first person I really wanted to marry. Yes. I wonder how it would turn out. Prolly the same. who knows. And really, now that I'm all married and stuff, who cares?

Do you have a girlfriend/boyfriend? Hmm, I have a wonderful wifey, a fun roommate, and some great friends who happen to be girls. My women keep me entertained and grounded.

Depends on how you classify "boyfriend." I am dating but not in a committed relationship with anyone.Current mood?Eh - pretty even keeled - not euphoric but not down in the dumps either.

"My women" - cute. Reminds me of that scene in this week's Grey's where McDreamy's sister tells him he's running circles around all the women in his life.
