Friday Five March 31st and The Weekend!
 

1) When you were little what was your favorite TV show?

Well "little" is subjective, so I’m going to go with the shows I first can remember enjoying. The first cartoon I remember enjoying was "Kimba The Little White Lion" and the first live action show has to be "Wonder Woman." 

2) What was your favorite movie?

I will have to go with either the "Star Wars" movies or "ET", because my brother and I had everything Star Wars and ET when those movies came out (sheets, curtains, toys, etc)  

3) What is your favorite TV show currently?

Probably "Desperate Housewives."

4) What is the best movie you have seen so far this year?

Hmmmm, I don’t think I’ve actually seen that many this year. Actually, I think the only one I’ve seen so far is "V for Vendetta" so I guess I have to say that one!  

5) If someone was going to make a movie or TV show about your life, who would play you and why?

Tobey McGuire, cause he is geeky and so am I.

So the weekend is upon us, and here the weather is gorgeous. Alas I doubt I’m going to get out and do anything to enjoy it. I’ll probably spend the weekend doing school work and cleaning the house, which badly needs to be cleaned. I wish I was going out and having "big fun with the wretched" but I’m not :(

Childhood Test Meme
 

Yet another blog meme from myspace, this one I stole from Tami. Meme’s came up in chat last night and it was asked what a Meme was, assuming we were discussing Mimi. Is it sad that I’m able to define meme without having to look it up?

Anyways, here is the meme . . .

I got tagged, blog meme time
 

So Jason on myspace tagged me with this. Since I don’t blog on myspace I’m putting it here. I’m also not tagging anyone else to do it lol.

The rules: Once you have been tagged, you have to write a blog with six weird facts/things/habits about yourself. In the end, you need to choose six people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their comments and tell them to read yours.

1) I can quiver my eyeballs back and forth. It freaks people out. Basically when you look at me i can make them shake really fast.

2) I have never smoked a cigarette in my life, not even one puff. This isn’t weird, but is unusual for this day and age.

3) I shared a bedroom with my brother until I was 21 years old.

4) I’ve been known to smear mayonnaise on a piece of bread and eat it for a snack.

5) I forced my mom to save almost all my toys from when I was younger. They are in boxes in my mom’s basement.

6) I enjoy watching children’s cartoons sometimes. When I was getting up in the wee hours of the morning potty training Princess I got hooked on "Timothy Goes To School."

Yes, I am alive . . . . .
 

Last Friday I ended up with a migraine, which put me out of commission and made me overtired on Saturday and almost boomeranged back on Sunday. Thus I’ve been out of it most of the weekend. This also meant I didn’t go out and have"big fun with the wretched" on Saturday. Another friend got sick as well, so it was all good. I don’t know if anything is planned for this weekend, but I think it’s safe to say no.

Nikko is getting so big, he is almost as big as Princess. His color is also changing a lot. Because of his breed, his final color won’t come in until his adult coat. While he’s still predominately black, he has a lot of red coming in on his back as well as white/grey highlights on his face and on his butt. I’ll try and take some new photos soon.

Friday Five for March 24th
 

I realize I forgot to do last week’s Friday Five. Oops! I did say I’d do them as much as I could remember to :)

1) Of the various cultures, ethnicities or nationalities you belong to, which most strongly do you consider yourself?

I guess I’m going to have to be boring and say white. I am your average white descendant of many European cultures/countries.

 2) Is there a culture you cannot claim heritage from but which you feel quite close to?

No not really. Again, another boring answer!

3) What’s one language you wish you knew fluently?

Japanese, I love asian horror films and videogames.

4) If you could move anywhere in the world and be guaranteed a job, etc., where would you go?

Ireland, cause it looks pretty in pictures and has castles and stone circles.

5) If you had a time machine, and could witness any one event without altering or disturbing it, what would you want to see?

The identity of Jack the Ripper maybe?

Yeah my answers pretty much suck! I’ve been on the couch asleep most of the day with a migraine :( That’s been no fun. I was supposed to go out to dinner tomorrow with friends and maybe a bar or dancing, but it looks like it is probably off. One of my friends is getting sick, and because I was ill today I feel like I need to be a good boy and stay home tomorrow evening to make up for lost work time today.

 I hope someone out there has a more exciting weekend planned than I do!

!@#%$!@% Vendetta!
 

I have other things I should be doing instead of searching the Passions Vendetta site for this week’s hidden mystery symbol!

Dustin

I Totally Jinxed It!
 

I spoke too soon about the San Fran vacation, it looks to be off. Actually, it pretty much is :(

My two friends still want me to do Vegas in August with them (I know, hot as hell). I’ll see about that.

It’s Springtime!
 

Sorry I haven’t checked in for a few days, I’ve been pretty busy as usual. It’s sad really, but it seems like I’m stuck in the house almost 24/7 nowadays. Between the soap pages and school, I don’t ever seem to leave my PC unless it’s to walk the dogs! Ahhhhhh! Fortunately I have been getting out with friends one day a week lately, which is good. However it’s also rare. This Saturday I’m going out again, and it’s like the third week in a row! Usually it’s once every 2-3 weeks, so it’s nice to get out of the house for a distraction and actually see people.

I am looking forward to my “Summer Vacations.” It looks like San Fran is in the final stages of planning. Honestly, I don’t remember the last time I went anywhere in the summer. I usually go to a local amusement park for my summer vacation, but that’s just a day thing. I think the last time I actually went somewhere for more than a day in the summer was about six years ago and that was Williamsburg, Va. I have only been to California once and that was almost seven years ago I think, wow!

I can’t believe it is already spring. It felt more like summer a few days ago and now it feels like winter! The flowers are coming up though, so I guess it’s spring. I may have to do some spring cleaning later on, it’s long overdue :)

Last Night’s Craziness
 

This was at 5pm yesterday, 5 fricken pm! Yeah, talk about insane. Hope your St. Paddy’s Day was a good one. Dustin

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
 

Hope everyone has a good one. I’m heading out shortly after the soaps to hang out with friends for the night. I need a breather. I’ve been cooped up working all week and my head is about to explode. Not sure when I’ll be back in tonight or what the night will hold!

Dustin

PS I’ll try and take photos!
