Oh, God! Another Meme!

"Life is as tedious as a twice-told tale Vexing the dull ear of a drowsy man." ~ William Shakespeare

I found this meme over at Etchens place, where I admitted having a slight crush on her. My answers differ from hers and if yours don't differ from mine, I will get a restraining order.

1. Were you named after anyone? Yes. I was named after Abraham Lincoln. He was named in 1809, I believe, and I was named in 1951.

2. Do you wish on stars? No.

3. Do you like your hand writing? No.

4. What is your favourite meat? Roast pork

5. What is the most embarrassing CD on your shelf? I believe the name is Andrea Bocelli. Italian singer of some sort who sings in Italian. Not my choice. A gift from a millionairess ex girlfriend. Never opened, or played.

6. If you were another person, would YOU be friends with you? Yes. I am a charming guy. (He said, with much alacrity)

7. Are you a daredevil? No.

8. Must have accidentally deleted it, b/c I have no idea what it was! So make up your own question here. Actually, Etchen, there wasn't a question here. I looked it up!

Mark said...

Pero, You have 2 wives? Wanna trade jobs?

Poison Pero said...

1 by law, and a work-wife.........Even my my wife an kids call her the my work-wife/stepmom, and they say so in a kind way not sarcastically.

It's a beautiful thing......Completely platonic, though. DAMN!!

Gayle said...

Some of your answers were truly funny, Mark. That's one of the few Meme's I've actually really enjoyed reading.

Four gals might have a crush on you? What are you waiting for? I told you before you had a great smile!

I can identify with your answer to number 10. I have always tended to do that myself. I don't like to show anger, so it sits and simmers. Then suddenly some little thing that shouldn't matter to a hill of beans will take me over the edge. It's not pretty and it's not a good thing. I'm still working on it.

My car is also my second home. I love to drive.

Now if I may, what in Hades is a "mosh pit?" (This is an example - I think - of a generation gap.) I will be back to check out your answer. :)

Gayle a mosh pit is a bunch of crazed teens bashing into each other and jumping around like drugged up drunk fools at heavy metal or punk rock concerts usually in front of the stage. It is a violent conflagration of elbows and knees, stitches and broken bones are often shown as badges of honor, a rough world.

Etchen said...

Ok, I'm going to try this again. I tried to post a comment last night, but when I hit "publish" apparently blogger was undergoing maintenance. Grrrr...
So anyways, I wanted to say I hold any compliment from you in high regard and I would have to admit the same crush as well. I've always said I get crushes on people's intellect. ;-)

I've never had root beer schnapps, but I may go in search of it as it sounds tasty!
