Friday Five for January 16, 2004

Yeah … right. As if you really give a rip about this week’s Friday Five !! lol :)You’re probably here to see if I’ve published my post about my first GNO with The UnUsual Suspects !! Heck … that’s why I’m here … to see if I already had written and published it !! 🙂 Apparently I haven’t. Bummer.

Oh well … I’ll get to it soon. Hopefully yet today. In the meantime, savor the following … 🙂

1. What does it say in the signature line of your emails?

Hmmm … certainly nothing really cool or interesting. If you’re really interested, send me an e-mail 🙂 … I really do try hard to answer any e-mails I receive … though I know I’m a bit behind again … (sworry Robin and Stacy !!! :))

Ahhh heck, I’m feeling a bit revealing today … so I’ll just tell ya …

See !!! I told you it was boring !! 🙂

2. Did you have a senior quote in your high school yearbook? What was it? If you haven’t graduated yet, what would you like your quote to be?

I don’t think I had a senior quote in my high school yearbook. We really didn’t do anything like that. I graduated from a moderately-sized high school … about 500 in my graduating class … we were lucky to get our senior pictures in the year book !! 🙂 Though I did make the yearbook for lettering on the cross country team, being all-conference on the debate team, making the state tournament for forensic speaking, president of the physics club, vice-president of the National Honor Society, student council representative and Most Likely To Have A Sex Change. Well, not really the last one … but it would have been funny !! 🙂 Seriously … look at the stuff I did in high school … what a phreakin’ geek !!! (Though in an attempt to counter my geekness, I did play organized baseball through high school and lots and lots of pick-up basketball !! Really !! I did !! And I wasn’t bad !! Really !! :))

3. If you had vanity plates on your car, what would they read? If you already have them, what do they say?

Well … personally … I’m not a big fan of vanity plates … because, well … it suggests that your vain. However, I did enjoy the humor of some of the edgier subtle plates that have been long since banned by states … you know, like EMWOLB (read it in reverse as in a mirror) or 6Q-2Q (read the hyphen as a minus sign and what’s the result … 4Q) … you know, childish things like that.

I can comfortably say that I really can’t imagine getting anything like a vanity plate that would say something like … QTPIE, SWTNES or TUUS (the last one is the acronym to The UnUsual Suspects … which if said phonetically … is also one of the toasts we made last night when we clicked our beer bottles together … To Us !! Kewl, huh? I don’t think anyone else noticed it, but I did, because … well, I notice krap like that, I’m a dweeb … please refer to the previous discussion in my answer to the second question. 🙂 )

However !!!!!!!! I might just have to get a vanity plate for totally butt reasons … you see, I’ve had the same license plate since 1984 … yes … 20 years this April !! And it’s showing it’s age … I can’t believe I haven’t been ticketed yet because the paint is peeling and its barely legible … but I have the plate number memorized … and I’m really bonded with it … so if they ever make me get a new license plate … I’m going to get a vanity plate with the exact same combination of letters and numbers as I have now … so it’ll be a vanity plate, but not really about being vain.

4. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them? What did the inscription say?

No. 🙁

5. What would you like your epitaph to be?

It’d be wonderful if it could sincerely say something simple like ..

A great mother, wife, friend.“,

But that’s pretty unlikely … so I’ll be happy with …

A great wife and friend.“,

But again, that’s not really within my control …

So I’ll be very content with it simply reading …

“”A great friend.

On the other hand … I’m also really partial to …

A Jedi like no other

  1. Cursed html page! It ate my epitaph idea which, by the way, was:


    (Switch the [] brackets for the appropriate triangular HTML tag ones. 😉 I hope it works this time. *sigh* Bye bye, punchline!)

  2. epitaph–i’d like to say something like:
    “I’m not dead, you idiots, and once i get out from under this rock, i’m really going to kick some serous ass, because this isn’t funny!”
