Annika's Journal Farewell Tour: Part VIII, Poll Results That I Never Got Around To Revealing

For those who followed the various sidebar polls, and others who are merely curious, here are some results that I never got around to mentioning, due to a lack of interest on my part.

  1. The current poll asks, "Annika trivia: If you busted into Annika's house, what would she most likely shoot you with?" The correct answer is Heckler & Koch USP in .45 ACP, not the Sig Sauer 9 mil that 50% of you guessed.

  2. Do you think the Travelocity Gnome is funny? I do not, and thus I agree with 67% of you. Strangely, ten respondents did not know whether the Travelocity Gnome is funny, which is a "no" vote as far as I'm concerned.

  3. Eighty-seven percent of you think Ohio State should officially change their name from the Buckeyes to Florida's Bitches.

  4. On the burning question, "Egg salad sandwich, tuna salad sandwich, or chicken salad sandwich?" the response was evenly divided: 31%, 33% and 33%. So basically, they're all good.

  5. Which Jessica is best? Thirty-four percent picked Jessica Alba, but I was happy to see that there were at least 23 Frank Herbert fans out there who voted for Lady Jessica Atreides.

  6. Now that Sam Jaya has been kicked off American Idol, if he takes your advice he should go on one of those Bravo reality shows where everyone's gay. I think he'd be perfect for Shear Genius... as a client!

  7. Eighty-five percent of you have health insurance. Fifteen percent of you don't. Amazingly, this result is almost exactly congruent with the latest national census figures. So anyone who thinks my blog visitors are not a representative cross-section of America is nuts.

  8. Regarding the question: "What was the top story of 2006? The one everyone's talking about?" you were given a number of choices, and the majority of you picked, "Jackie Passey." That's crazy. What's even crazier is that "Evil donuts from the future invade Wall Street, reprogram the stock market" got only 14%, and that's only because I kept voting for it about two dozen times. The mere discovery that sentient donuts exist is enough to make it the top story in all of history, let alone the top story of last year. Add to that the fact that they're evil, they traveled through time, they invaded Wall Street, and they somehow managed to reprogram the stock market?!?! I just don't see how you people didn't think that was a major story! I suspect it's because many of you are doing well in the stock market and don't want to rock the boat.

  9. ¿Qual es la favorita pictura del hombre de sombrero? Esta Alfonso Bedoya.

  10. And finally, the winner of the Battle Of The Movie Assassins was Nikita from the original La Femme Nikita, starring Anne Parillaud. She got 58% of the vote, compared to Jason Bourne's 42%. I totally disagree with that result but what are you gonna do? View the tournament bracket here.
So now that's over with, I feel a lot better.

You all voted for the World's Greatest Australian, and the results are finally in. I couldn't disagree more.

In what universe does a non-celebrity like Kylie Minogue beat Angus Young (who rules the known universe)?

That's b.s., but whatever.

Anyways, here's Kylie's banned lingerie commercial for whoever stuffed the ballot box. Enjoy.

And The 2006 Annika's Jeopardy Champion Is...

Tonight was the finale of the real Jeopardy's Tournament of Champions. Well, here at Annika's Journal we've just concluded our own contest, and I'm about to announce the new 2006 Annika's Jeopardy Champion.

The Final Jeopardy clue was very hard, I know. I test googled it first, just to make sure. The category was "Heroes," and the clue was: "A famous historian once described him thusly: 'He is incapable of violent action, he never raises his voice.' Yet today he is recognized as one of the Greatest Generation's great leaders."

The famous historian was Stephen E. Ambrose, if that helps any. The correct response will be revealed in the extended entry.

Let's see how the contestants did, shall we?

As on tv, we begin with the contestant who started with the lowest dollar total. That would be Skippy Stalin.

respskippystalin.jpg

Skippy bet all of his $100, and guessed "Dwight David Eisenhower." Unfortunately, the judges can't accept that response, since it wasn't in the form of a question. Hey, I don't make the rules. So Skippy goes down to $0.

Next we have Drake Steel.

respdrakesteel.jpg

Drake wagered his entire $100, then apparently was so stumped by the clue that he failed to respond at all. Sorry Drake, you're down to zero.

Let's see how Trint did.

resptrint.jpg

Trint also bet his whole wad, $200. And like Drake, he had no response to the clue so he also goes down to zero. Maybe you'll have better luck with your next CD, dude.

Next up is Blu.

respblu.jpg

Blu wagered his entire stash of $300. Perhaps he was preoccupied by his ongoing 12 round slugfest with Strawman, since Blu completely forgot to send me a response. Down to zero, my friend.

On to the Maximum Leader.

respmaxleader.jpg

Maximum Leader wagered all of his $300 (I sense a pattern here). His guess was interesting, "Who is... Omar Bradley." Sorry dude, it was not the G.I. General. You are now tied with everybody else, at zero.

Law Fairy is next up.

resplawfairy.jpg

Law Fairy also decided to bet it all, in her case that was $500. I like her guess, "Who was Audie Murphy?" But unfortunately, that is not the correct response either. Go join the rest of the contestants with zero point zero dollars.

Let's check on Victor.

respvictor.jpg

Victor bet all $700 of his hard earned money, and guessed "Who is Dwight D. Eisenhower?" Close. Ambrose did write a fine two volume biography of the General, but Ike actually had a famous temper, so the quote doesn't fit. Victor goes to zero too.

Next is Shelly.

respshelly.jpg

Shelly bet it all too. He had $1000. I say "had" because he guessed "Who is (was) Mahatma Gandhi?" which is also interesting, but way off. Shelly is now tied with everybody else in the basement.

Tuning Spork.

resptuningspork.jpg

The Spork guessed "Who was Pope John Paul II?" He also lost his entire $1500 too. Gosh, what if everybody tied with zero? Has that ever happened before?

D-Rod brought the second highest dollar total.

respdrod.jpg

With all $1600 of his dollars, D-Rod guessed "Who is Gandhi?" same as Shelly. Great minds think alike, I guess. While the Ambrose quote might very well apply to Gandhi, the historian was talking about someone else. So D-Rod loses it all.

Finally there is Leif, who had the distinction of having gotten the most correct responses this year. Like Tuning Spork, Leif also incorrectly guessed "Who is John Paul II?" But what did he wager?

respleif.gif

$1301 of his $1900 total.

Wow, Leif was the only contestant to hold something back, and as a result he is the new Annika's Jeopardy Champion with a total of $599! Congratulations Leif!

Well, that was an exciting finish this year. Thanks for playing!





































Oh my goodness, I almost forgot to tell you the correct response.

The full quote, from Stephen Ambrose's Band of Brothers, is this:

He is incapable of violent action, he never raises his voice, he is contemptuous of exagerration, self-puffery, or posturing. He has achieved exactly what he wanted in life, that peace and quiet he promised himself as he lay down to catch some sleep on the night of June 6-7, 1944 . . .
Got it yet?

Here's the rest:

. . . and the continuing love and respect of the men he commanded in Easy Company in World War II.
There you go. If you've read the book, or seen the miniseries, you'd probably remember "who is Captain Richard Winters." If not, he is definitely a hero you'll want to learn more about.

Final Jeopardy With Annika

Here it is, the Final Jeopardy clue. Players have until the 11:59 p.m. Pacific time on Thursday, September 7th to email your responses to me. Remember, you must have already emailed me your Final Jeopardy wager to be eligible to play.

You can email your responses to me by clicking here.

The clue is in the extended entry. Good Luck!

Final Jeopardy At Last!

final2006cat.gif

It's time for Final Jeopardy with Annika. Thanks to everyone who participated in this game. Last year we had twelve visitors on the board, and this year we had fifteen, so that's pretty cool.

Last year's winner was Trevor, and we will definitely have a new champion this year since Trevor didn't play. (Unless he was the fake Law Fairy.)

Final Jeopardy will be open to anyone who has money in the game.

That would be:

Leif $1900 in
D-Rod $1600 in
Tuning Spork $1500 in
Shelly $1000 in
Victor has $700 in
Law Fairy $500 in
Maximum Leader $300 in
KG $300
Blu $300 in
Kevin Kim $300
Matt of Overtaken By Events $200
Trint $200 in
Drake Steel $100 in
TBinSTL $100
SkippyStalin $100 in

Just like on tv, you can wager from $0 up to the entire total of what you've earned in the game, or any amount in between.

Rules will be a little different this year, to conform more closely with the tv show. First, the players will email me their wagers, based on the category, without knowing the clue. All wagers must be in to me by Tuesday night, September 5, 2006, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific time.

After I get the wagers, I'll post the clue and there will also be another time limit for the responses.

Comments will be closed, so wagers and responses must be e-mailed to me. The correct response must be phrased in the form of a question. There's no need to buzz in for Final Jeopardy.

The Final Jeopardy category is "Heroes." Think about your wagers and send the amounts to me by clicking here.

Annika's Jeopardy, Round 21

D-Rod gets the last Daily Double!

Let's go over the Daily Double rules once again.

The rules for Daily Double are almost the same as on tv, with an important exception. In my game everybody gets to play the Daily Double.

Every response must have a wager in it. The lowest you can wager is $100 and the highest you can wager is either $500 or however much money you have earned already, whichever is higher. Or you can wager any amount in between.

Since D-Rod picked the Daily Double, his response gets priority. If you guess before him you run the risk of tipping him off to the correct response. If D-Rod either guesses wrong or does not respond by the expiration of his time limit (9:00 p.m. Pacific time on Thursday) the rest of the responses will count in order of their posting.

Here are the official standings. Tuning Spork is ahead with $1200; Leif is second with $1100; D-Rod has $900; Shelly and Victor are tied with $700 each; Law Fairy has $500; Maximum Leader and KG have $300 each; Matt of Overtaken By Events and Trint have $200 each; Drake Steel, TBinSTL and SkippyStalin have $100 each.

The category is "Anal Bum Covers." I'll post the clue after I eat some dinner.

Okay, here's the video clue. I'm certain it's google proof!

JP2006-5003.gif

Reminder: Just in case it wasn't clear. The time limit applies only to D-Rod. If he doesn't respond by 9:00 p.m. Pacific Time tonight, the clue is still open to anyone who wants to try.

Shelly gets the first Daily Double of the year! In the category "Dicks."

Let's go over the Daily Double rules.

Just like last year, the rules for Daily Double are almost the same as on tv, with an important exception. In my game everybody gets to play the Daily Double.

Every response must have a wager in it. The lowest you can wager is $100 and the highest you can wager is either $500 or however much money you have earned already, whichever is higher. Or you can wager any amount in between.

If Shelly either guesses wrong or does not respond by the expiration of the time limit (10:00 p.m. Pacific time on Monday) the rest of the responses will count in order of their posting.

Here's the clue. Good luck.

I got time today, so let's make it another video. Here's the clue, for $200.

Annika's Journal Jeopardy, 2006

It's July, and that means it's time for the second annual annika's journal version of the popular game show, Jeopardy!

I'll be your host. As last year, I pick the answers, you guess the questions, and you must remember to use the signalling device and phrase your response in the form of a question.

I'll start it off with the first category: "American Skankwomen." Like last year, the first couple of correct responders will get to name the rest of the categories, until all the category boxes are filled. (Of course, I'll reserve the right to veto any categories i think are lame.)

So here's the first question:

JP2006-1001.gif

Good luck!

Update: Controversy on the first question already! Drake Steel's response, which was accepted by the judges, was 54 hours. According to Wikipedia, Brittany's marriage to Jason Alexander lasted 55 hours. Just to be absolutely certain, I looked up the annulment certificate, which bears a time stamp of 12:24 p.m. on January 5, 2004. I then determined the difference between the reported time of marriage, 5:30 a.m. and the time of annulment. The result is exactly 54 hours and 54 minutes. So, therefore I would have accepted either 54 or 55 hours as a correct response. So big congratulations to Drake, who participated last year but never got on the board!

The Totally Awesome Thirty Questions Meme

Okay, you've all seen these things, a list of questions supposedly designed to help you get to know me better. Really, this list is pretty lame. The only things you need to know about me are that I'm totally awesome, totally hot, and I can kick your ass at tennis or trivia any day of the week. Other than that, what's to know? I'm pretty boring.

I once had a 100 Things list up, but I got tired of it and I haven't yet gotten in the mood to revise it. The following thirty questions are a meme that many of the Cotillion babes are answering this week. In our collective wisdom, we have all decided that questions like "what color is your bathroom" and "what fabric detergent do you use" are burning issues that our readers' lives cannot be considered complete without knowing the answers thereto.

So without further ado:

  1. What time did you get up this morning? 5:30 a.m.
  2. Diamonds or pearls? Diamonds, never pearls.
  3. What was the last film you saw at the movie house? United 93
  4. What is your favorite TV show? I never miss American Idol or 24, but the best show on tv is Lost.
  5. What did you have for breakfast? Starbuck's old fashioned donut, and a coffee.
  6. What is your middle name? Grace
  7. What is your favorite cuisine? Spanish
  8. What foods do you dislike? I don't dislike sushi, but I'm afraid to eat anything raw.
  9. What kind of car do you drive? 1994 Mazda MX-6
  10. Favorite Sandwich? Thick slices of mozarella cheese with pesto, romaine lettuce and sun-dried tomato on a sesame seed roll. Try it.
  11. What characteristic do you despise? When someone takes themself too seriously.
  12. Favorite item of clothing? I'd have to say shoes.
  13. If you could go anywhere in the world for a holiday where would you go? I totally want to see Japan.
  14. What color is your bathroom? It is apartment beige.
  15. Favorite brand of clothing? Ann Taylor.
  16. Where would you like to retire? Hungary or Portugal.
  17. Favorite time of the day? Right now, 4:45 p.m. because then it's almost time to go home.
  18. What was your most memorable birthday? When I was in Jamaica. Correction, I don't really remember much about that day.
  19. Where were you born? Copenhagen, Denmark.
  20. Favorite sport to watch? Used to be basketball but the NBA sucks these days, so it's football.
  21. What are you wearing right now? Coincidentally it's shiny black basketball shorts and my "guns+bombs=peace" t-shirt.
  22. What star sign are you? Aries.
  23. What fabric detergent do you use? Tide unscented.
  24. Pepsi or Coke? I drink Coca-Cola, for a strong America.
  25. Are you a morning person or a night owl? Night owl.
  26. What is your shoe size? 8.
  27. Do you have any pets? Sadly, no.
  28. Any new exciting news you’d like to share with your readers? My boyfriend and I are getting an apartment together next semester!
  29. What did you want to be when you were little? Firefighter, if you can believe it.
  30. What are you meant to be doing today? Writing something more creative than this.

iPod Name That Tune

Okay here's a fun idea I just came up with. I was inspired by Sheila's old "Guess the First Lines of Novels" game, which is a lot of fun to look at, even though the game is long over.

Then I thought about my Friday iPod post. How boring is it to just post the songs, hoping you'll think I'm cool and all eclectic and shit. Why not give my readers a chance to show how cool you are.

So here's the opening four lines from ten random songs off my iPod. Some of them should be easy, and some will probably be impossible. You could google the lyrics, but I don't know how you'd sleep at night if you did so. Anyways, if you do google, don't post the answer because someone else might want to guess.

There are no prizes in this game, just good karma.

Can you guess the title and the artist? Green means somebody got it. Good luck!

  1. We took a walk that night, but it wasn't the same
    We had a fight on the promenade out in the rain
    She said she loved me, but she had somewhere to go
    She couldn't scream while I held her close

  2. when a man is running from his boss
    Who holds a gun that fires ’cost’
    And people die from being cold
    Or left alone because they’re old

  3. Well they're still racing out at the trestles
    But that blood it never burned in her veins
    Now I hear she's got a house up in Fairview
    And a style she's trying to maintain

  4. If I listened long enough to you
    I'd find a way to believe that its all true
    Knowing that you lied straight-faced while I cried
    Still I look to find a reason to believe

  5. There is freedom within, there is freedom without
    Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
    There’s a battle ahead, many battles are lost
    But you’ll never see the end of the road while you’re travelling with me

  6. Love, look at the two of us
    Strangers in many ways
    We’ve got a lifetime to share
    So much to say and as we go on from day to day

  7. Well, take me back down where cool water flows, yeah.
    Let me remember things I love,
    Stoppin’ at the log where catfish bite,
    Walkin’ along the river road at night,

  8. on a cobweb afternoon
    in a room full of emptiness
    by a freeway i confess
    i was lost in the pages

  9. Oh I have been out searching with the black book in my hand
    And I've looked between the lines that lie on the pages that I tread
    I met the walking dude, religious, in his worn down cowboy boots
    He walked liked no man on earth I swear he had no name

  10. he bought a sterilized hypo
    to shoot a sex machine drug
    he got 24 hours
    to shoot all paulenes between the legs
In other news, coming in July: the return of annika's journal Jeopardy. Bigger and badder than ever. Consider this a warm-up.

Just Tryin' To Help Out

Everybody knows I'm a Republican and therefore am good friends with Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling. So with the recent unfortunate unpleasant verdicts, I thought I'd do what I could to ease the transition to their new lifestyle.

I consulted the Prison Bitch Name Generator.

Herafter Ken Lay shall be known as: "Queer Johnny," and Jeff Skilling shall be known as "Butt Blaster."

Nice monikers.

Just out of curiosity, I checked my own. It is "Ben Dover," which, coincidentally enough, is the name I used when I did that 5 year stretch for check kiting back in the '90s.

Update: A little more research on folks who are (or should be) in prison yields the following gems:

Michael Jackson = "Wannabe." As in wannabe startin' somethin?

Martha Stewart = "Backroom Baller." Sounds like an AC/DC song.

Ted Kennedy = "Fudge Packer." Thus the waistline.

Scott Peterson = "Man Hole."

O.J. Simpson = "Glory Hole."

Saddam Hussein = "Honey Hole."

What If Annika Had Lived In 1905?

Via the Maximum Leader, this site purports to show what my life would have been like if I had lived in Edwardian England.

The result is a little disappointing:

You live alone and have a private income!
- A Snapshot of your life as it might have been in 1905

Education
Your parents will send you to a private school and despite the fact that you are bright and enjoy school you'll leave at 16.

Career Prospects
When you're young you'll do some household chores but won't do any work in the kitchen. When your mother dies you'll be left the house and a private income and your spinster friend will come to live with you. You'll believe strongly in the need to improve the quality of food and sanitation for the poor so you'll join a commission on public health and campaign for improvements.

Leisure Time
You'll eat your main meal - meat and vegetables - in the evening, except on Sundays. You'll support the church by sewing kneeler covers, arranging flowers and raising money for charity. You'll learn the piano and enjoy going to the theatre and musical concerts in the local town. Every week you'll make time to borrow books from the mobile library that will pass through your village.

Living Conditions
You'll employ two servants who live in your house but will be unimpressed with the quality of their work.

Marital Relations
You'll be engaged to a man from the parish but he'll be killed at war. You'll never marry which will set you apart from most of your contemporaries.

World War One
When World War One starts you'll join a women's auxiliary force and will survive to be awarded a 1914 Star and a bronze Victory Medal.

Pity about my fiancé. He must have been Russian, or possibly Japanese, because I don't know of any other European wars that were going on in 1905. The Boer War had just ended and I think Britain remained at peace until the Great War.

Hat tip: Naked Villainy.

Finally, The Jeopardy Winner

i'm sorry for the delay. With the hurricane and all, i was unable to post before today.

Okay, so i'm in California. i knew that. Well the real reason is that i was in moving and had no electricity. i thought i'd be able to post via my telephone but then its battery went dead. So i was completely blog incommunicado for four days.

But i hope you'll find the long awaited Final Jeopardy round as exciting as i did. The category was "The Blogosphere," and the clue was

annika has almost all of his TV appearances on DVD, yet this blogger is not on her blogroll. Go figure.
As in the TV show, we start with the player who has the lowest amount of cash. Kyle said "I got nuthin," by which i assume he means he wagered nothing too. So Kyle stays at $200.

Next is Ken, who said: "I bet my whole wad on Wil Wheaton." i'm sorry Ken, the judges cannot accept that answer. You lose your whole wad, $200.

Jasen and Skippy didn't play FJ, so i'm keeping their money.

Next is D-Rod, who responded: "Who is Victor David Hanson?" Nope. D-Rod wagered $399, so he now has $1.

Charlie had $400, but didn't submit a response, so i keep his money.

Phil had $500, and his response was "Who is Frank Sinatra?" Last i checked, Frank Sinatra was dead. Although his music lives on, i don't think Sinatra's music has a blog. Phil wagered "$0.00," so he's left with $500 and the lead.

Next is Shelly, who responded

Damn, I hate this game. I am compulsive by nature, and I have made this an addiction. I'm glad it is over an I can get back to my mundane life.

OK, at first, I thought it was gonna be Hugh Hewitt for sure, but I checked and he IS on your blogroll, so that fizzled out.

Then I said (to myself) 'Myself, who has been on TV enough to have Annie have taped him, and yet not so much that her house would be running over with discs, etc.?'.

Myself replied 'The only person I can come up with is a guy who's show was canceled for some inexplicable reason (well, he seems less offensive on the radio, I guess) from Northern California named Michael Savage.'

So, trusting Myself, and having no other thoughts . . . Who is Michael Savage?
Uhh, no.

Let's see what Shelly wagered. His entire $1000. Sorry Shelly, you're down to zero.

Next is Victor, who guessed "Who is Will Wheaton?" Ding. You are correct, Victor. Spelling does not count in Final Jeopardy. Victor bet all $1100, so he now has the lead with $2200.

Dave J was next with $1400, but this was his response:

Since I'm completely stumped, I'm not betting anything: I can't even think up a good guess, though I'm sure I'll be kicking myself about how obvious it was after this is over.

And now you've motivated me to try out again, and pester the hell out of the real show to call me back this time.

Dave's $1400 won't be enough to take over the lead from Victor. But good luck on the real Jeopardy, Dave.

Casca started out with the second highest point total, at $1700. Ever confident, Casca responded with "Who is Hugh Hewitt?" aaaaaaa! Like Shelly said, Hugh Hewitt is indeed on my blogroll. Casca bet the whole thing, so he is now down to zero.

Finally, it's all up to Trevor, who starts out Final Jeopardy with the most points, $1900. His response was "Who is Wil Wheaton?" Nice job Trevor.

Now let's find out if Trevor wagered enough to beat Victor.

Here is Trevor's wager:

Wager: $1501
which gives him $3401 and the title of annika's Jeopardy Champion! Congratulations Trevor!

(i can hear Victor saying "rats" right now.)

Thanks for playing everybody. We will now return to our regularly scheduled blog.

Rules For Final Jeopardy

It's now time for Final Jeopardy. Thanks to everyone who participated in this game, or just kept checking back over the last couple weeks. What started out as a joke, has become an excellent way for me to inflate my Sitemeter stats without a whole lot of effort or original content on my part. What blogger could ask for more?


ticktet

Final Jeopardy will be open to anyone who has money in the game.

That would be:

Trevor $1900
Casca $1700
Dave J $1400
Victor $1100
Shelly $1000
Phil $500
Charlie $400
D-Rod $400
Skippy $400
Jasen $300
Ken $200
Kyle $200

Comments will be closed, and responses must be e-mailed to me with your wager. The correct response must have a wager, and be phrased in the form of a question.

There will also be a time limit, which will be long enough hopefully for everyone to see the clue. Since i know Casca and Victor are away, it wouldn't be fair to post it this weekend. So i will post it Monday morning and give everybody until Tuesday night to respond.

The Final Jeopardy category will be "The Blogosphere."

Jeopardy With annika, Round 30

The category is "Fash-ism," for $400. It's a Daily Double!

Trevor is in the lead with $1900, Casca has $1700, Victor has $1100, Shelly has $1000, Phil has $500, Charlie, Dave J, D-Rod and Skippy have $400 each, Jasen has $300, Ken and Kyle have $200 each.

Let's go over the Daily Double rules one more time.

The rules for Daily Double are almost the same as on tv, with an important exception. In my game everybody gets to play the Daily Double.

Every response must have a wager in it. The lowest you can wager is $50 and the highest you can wager is either $500 or however much money you have earned already, whichever is higher. Or you can wager any amount in between.

One caveat. Since Dave J picked the Daily Double, his response gets priority. So if you guess before him you run the risk of tipping him off to the correct response. If Dave J either guesses wrong or does not respond by the expiration of the time limit (10:00 p.m. Pacific time on Friday) the rest of the responses will count in order of their posting.

At the expiration of the time limit (10:00 p.m. Pacific time on Monday) the rest of the responses will count in order of their posting.

Since i'm running out of ideas for "Fuckin' Lawyers," this time the clue will be in reverse. i'll tell you who's fucking him, you tell me the name of the lawyer.

Lifetime Meme

i got tagged on this meme by Ginger, so here goes.

[Warning: i have a very boring life.]

10 years ago: i had just graduated. It was summer and i was spending most of the time with my biker boyfriend

5 years ago: i was temping at Brobeck in San Francisco. And no, i don't remember ever having met Jennifer the Apprentice runner-up, although she worked there too. Betty and i went dancing at the same club every Saturday, where we got in free and got free drinks the whole time. Dating Colby the first time-around.

1 year ago: Just moved to Sacramento. Sleeping on a futon on the floor.

Yesterday: Took the afternoon off to visit with my friend's family in Dixon. Her mom was sick and i brought some flowers. Afterwards, watched X-Men 2 on DVD.

Today: Made coffee. Watched Forbes on tv. Plan to buy a vacuum and/or play tennis with Megan. BBQ tonight at a cute boy's house.

Tomorrow: Nada. Sleep in. Church.

5 snacks I enjoy: Doritos spicy nachos. Sun-dried tomato Wheat-Thins with lite garden veggie cream cheese. Tillamook mint chocolate chip ice cream. A haas avocado salad. Chewy granola bars.

5 bands that I know the lyrics of MOST of their songs: i can't think of five. i can sing along to almost any AC/DC or Frank Sinatra tune, though.

5 things I would do with $100,000,000: Get out of debt. Buy a sweet car, like a convertible Benz. My mom, dad and brother would get a bunch of money, and i'd donate a lot to my High School too. I'd travel to all the places i want to see, like Japan, South America and back to Europe.

5 locations I’d like to run away to: Portugal, Prague, the South Pacific, New Zealand, Amsterdam.

5 bad habits I have: The first four are the usual bad habits. i also sometimes say "what" when someone's talking, even though i heard them perfectly well. i have no idea why i do this; it's like an involuntary thing.

5 things I like doing: blogging, dancing, tennis, painting, reading.

5 things I would never wear: animal print, a headband, jewelled sandals, a tubetop (agreeing with Lorie) or Muumuu (agreeing with Ginger)

5 TV shows I like: Any sporting event, Conan O'Brien, 24, most anything on the History Channel, Cops. i used to love The Apprentice, but last season was kind of sucky.

5 movies I like: The Wizard of Oz, Arthur, It's A Wonderful Life, All About Eve, Groundhog Day

5 famous people I’d like to meet: Most of them are dead, like Abe Lincoln, FDR, Sinatra, Shakespeare, Reagan

5 biggest joys at the moment: looking forward to tonight, writing a really good motion for work, kicking back with my roomies and Bay Area friends, visiting my parents and hanging out with my bro and my L.A. friends.

5 favorite toys: Legos, Barbie, koosh ball, G.I. Joe, videogames

5 people to tag: Nobody ever does this when i tag them, so i'm going to tag no one and everyone.

if dancing isn't your thing, you are still very
creative. You keep to yourself aside from a few

  4. Jacqueline Carey

  5. Jennifer Weiner

WTF? Time For Another Dumb-Ass Personality Quiz

i found this quiz at baldilocks. It's called: "20 Questions to a Better Personality." Well, i answered all twenty questions, but i don't feel any different. That's false advertising.

Here are my results; i didn't cheat; i think it's bullshit; so interpret them as you may:

Wackiness: 56/100
Rationality: 58/100
Constructiveness: 32/100
Leadership: 44/100

You are a WRDF--Wacky Rational Destructive Follower. This makes you a hacker. Your thirst for knowledge can be damaging to your possessions--you like to take things apart, even if you then forget to put them back together. You demand respect and, no matter how much you are respected, seldom feel it is adequate. You are tenacious, and will stick to a task long after weaker minds have given it up.

Socially, you are awkward, and get into arguments and make people uncomfortable. One recommends counting to ten, holding back comments unless warranted, and listening more than speaking. Still, your no-holds-barred approach to socialization can be strangely endearing, as long as you are funny and self-deprecating.

You feel misunderstood, and you probably are.

No fuckin' shit.


Update: This same quiz proclaims that the BigHominid is "completely unfunny." Now i know it's bullshit.

Political Quiz

Here's a not-so-dumb-ass political quiz that i found on NakedVilliany, which was created by Tony Pierce.


1. Which political party do you typically agree with? The Republican Party.

2. Which political party do you typically vote for? The Republican Party. The only Democrat i have ever voted for in any election was Diane Feinstien.

3. List the last five presidents that you voted for? In 1996 i voted for Bob Dole in the general and Steve Forbes in the primary. In 2000 i voted for George W. Bush in the general and Alan Keyes in the primary.

4. Which party do you think is smarter about the economy? The Republican Party.

5. Which party do you think is smarter about domestic affairs? The Republican Party.

6. Do you think we should keep our troops in Iraq or pull them out? Keep them in until there is a stable, pro-U.S. democracy in place.

7. Who, or what country, do you think is most responsible for 9/11? Al Qaeda and violent Islam.

8. Do you think we will find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? No.

9. Yes or no, should the U.S. legalize marijuana? Yes.

10. Do you think the Republicans stole the last presidental election? Quite the contrary. The Republicans barely avoided an all-out attempt by the Democrats to steal the election.

11. Do you think Bill Clinton should have been impeached because of what he did with Monica Lewinski? No. He was impeached for committing purjury. i believed then, and still do, that he should have been impeached. Although i wanted him to be convicted at the time, in retrospect, it was probably for the good of the country that the Senate acquitted him.

12. Do you think Hillary Clinton would make a good president? Absolutely not.

13. Name a current Democrat who would make a great president: Joe Lieberman or Zell Miller.

14. Name a current Republican who would make a great president: Besides Bush, Dick Cheney, Rudy Giuliani.

15. Do you think that women should have the right to have an abortion? No.

16. What religion are you? Roman Catholic.

17. Have you read the Bible all the way through? No.

18. What's your favorite book? Ana Karenina.

19. Who is your favorite band? Favorite performer? AC/DC, Frank Sinatra.

20. Who do you think you'll vote for president in the next election? George W. Bush.

21. What website did you see this on first? NakedVillainy.com.

Update: Re-reading this entry in January 2005, i would probably remove Zell Miller from number 13, and add Evan Bayh and Dick Gephardt.

Actually i never really identified with any of the characters in M*A*S*H. The only female, Hot Lips, i couldn't stand. Even during the later seasons, after Frank left and she stopped acting like she had a bug up her ass.

My favorite character was always Lt. Col. Blake. i liked his attitude towards work. "Just let Radar take care of it." He always had his priorities straight.

Not That Anybody's Asking...

1. What time is it? Nine twenty-seven, pacific daylight time.

2. Nicknames: Annie, Sissy, and rarely Becky.

3. Birth Parents' names? Richard and Grete (pronounced like Gree-ta, short for Margarethe, ).

4. Number of candles that appeared on your last birthday cake? Twenty-seven.

5. Favorite animal: Wild animal or pet? i love any kind of dog, except for poodles or yorkies. But for wild animal, i like big cats, like lions or tigers or pumas.

6. Tattoo? Yes. A barbed wire design on my right arm and a little tiger's head on my back.

12. Ever been in a car accident? i would guess about three. Nobody was injured. Two of them were solo spin-outs because i took a corner too fast in the rain.

13. Croutons or Bacon bits? You know that's a tough question. Generally it's croutons because i hate those fake radioactive looking baco-bits. But if it's real bacon, i'll go for that.

22. Favorite Foods? i had a great butternut squash ravioli just recently.

23. Favorite days of the week? Sunday.

24. Favorite TV Show(s)? Tales of the Gun on the History Channel. No, just kidding. i love Emeril Live, though. And The Simpsons, of course

25. Most recently read book/magazine? Blue Moon by Laurell K. Hamilton. Freaky, kinda weird, vampires and werewolves with a not very likeable main character. i didn't really like it.

28. When was your last hospital stay? 1990, food poisoning. Bad shellfish.

29. How many times did you fail your driver's test? Passed the first time. i'm an excellent driver. Excellent driver.

Which Colossal Death Robot Are You?

Holy Prime Directive, you're Robocop!

Well, you're neither colossal, nor technically a robot, but your arthritic lurching and dubious morals have found their way into the hearts of futuristic rebels and children everywhere. You walk through fire, catch bullets from the air, and you never, ever smile. Combine this with an abstract, almost random concept of duty and honour, and you have a police officer one cannot fail to adore.

Thank you, Robocop.

Got this one offa Uncle Screwtape knows best.


More: This quiz is actually very thought provoking. i started wondering: what are the qualities i would look for in an ideal colossal death robot. i think they would be the following:

  1. benevolence;

  2. indestructibility;

  3. gigantic size;

  4. loyalty;

  5. a silvery exterior.
You'll notice that i didn't include intelligence on the list. Intelligence is for androids. I think benevolence is the most important quality for a colossal death robot. i mean, what good is a colossal death robot if it's just going to go around killing the wrong people and destroying things that you need? Loyalty is also very important. That was Iron Man's flaw. Although he was benevolent at one time, he became a big problem when he decided to "kill the people he once saved." A silvery exterior is also important, aesthetically. i know some people like gold robots, but really, how intimidating was C3P0? Silver is the best color for a colossal death robot, in my opinion.

Where i Live

Yah, another quiz. Find out where you live in Politopia.

North-You are a Northerner-a free marketeer-which means that you advocate a diminished role for the government in the economic realm. You are more or less pleased with the government's role in the personal realm.
i think some of the quiz questions could be phrased better, it does tend to skew towards the center. Also some important issues were not even included, i.e. gun rights, abortion.

Got it offa doubleplusgood.

You're Dune!

by Frank Herbert

You have control over a great wealth of resources, but no one wants to let you have them. You've decided to try to defend yourself, but it may take eons before you really get back what you feel you deserve. Meanwhile you have a cult-like following of minions waiting for your life to progress. This would all be even more exciting if you could just get the sand out of your eyes.

Take the Book Quiz
at the Blue Pyramid.
i'm Dune eh? Never read it. Crappy movie, though. What's up with Kyle MacLachlan's chin anyways?

i got this quiz offa Thoroughly Modern Monyca. i just stumbled onto her site and i like it. i'd congratulate Monyca on being sworn in to the New York Bar, but her blog has no comments. i decided to blogroll her, since there's not enough lawyers on my blogroll. (i'm being facetious, of course. There's seven on there that i know of, not counting Publicola, who probably should be a lawyer.)
