Just a survey(or two)

As I drove home tonight I had so much I wanted to write about:  A-Roid, the story about a tree falling on me, catching up with some old friends over dinner, but instead, as I sat down in front of my technology, I decided to simply take the easy way out – the cowards way.

Here is a survey I filled out, and yes, it’s currently making its rounds on Facebook:

 WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Sure was: Walter is a family name on my mom’s side, shared by her brother, her father and grandfather. My middle name, Peter is my dad’s name as well as my great grandfather on his side. My last name, Gogolya, is Hungarian for Nine Inch Penis.

 DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
I have atrocious handwriting, but, except for a few checks each month, I never write. I have beautiful typing though..

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
Salami

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Saturday night during Battlestar Galactica when President Roslin saw Bill after thinking he’d been killed.

 DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
No, but I am “Uncle Walt” to many. My biggest fear is that someday that moniker will become creepy. “Hey, see that old fat guy in the park? That’s Uncle Walt! Stay away from him.”

 IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Probably not. I’d probably be jealous of me and not want me around stealing all my thunder.

DO YOU USE SARCASM?
Sarcasm uses me.

 DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
Yes, in my hope chest.

 WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Are you fucking crazy! I don’t trust anyone that much. A piece of rubber! Come on!

 WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
3-way tie: Capt Crunch, Cookie Crisp, and Frutti Pebbles. Nothing will ever come close to the kid cereals.

 DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
Nope. But I pay for it in the morning when I huff and puff and struggle trying to get the double knot out that I wished I’d taken care of the night before.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
Peanut Butter Cup

 WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Nothing specific. Depends on the person. But, as I’ve said before, I consider myself an excellent  judge of character and can usually tell what someone’s all about after one conversation.

 RED OR PINK?
Pink baby!

WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
My impending sense of doom. No matter how good things are going or how happy I am, I can’t fully enjoy myself, because I know, inevitably, things will go bad.

 WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
My grandparents on Dad’s side. On Feb. 16 it will be 13 years since Grampy passed away.

DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO COMPLETE THIS LIST?
I do actually.

 WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
Blue sweatpants. No shoes.

 WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
Dani California on Pandora Radio…….now it’s King of Pain by the Police.

 IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE
If I were a crayon I’d be really pissed that I wasn’t a human!

 FAVORITE SMELLS?
Gasoline. A Pizza before it comes out of the oven. A freshly douched woo-woo.

WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
Keely

DO YOU LIKE THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU?
I stole it from Freckles page. I like her very much. Though I never see her and i’m not too sure if she even exists.

 WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
Black

SUMMER OR WINTER?
Winter is good for one thing and one thing only-Christmas. Anything after that in unbearably awful. Cold weather, slippery roads, getting dark at 5pm. Winter is only fun if you’re a kid and you can go sledding and have days off from school.

Walmart.

You’ll have to ask Christine ’bout that one.

In a dead mans town. The first kick I took is when I hit the ground. End up like a dog that’s been beat to much, till you spend half your life just a covering up.

 WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK?
Alice and Esme Cullen.

 HOW DID YOU MEET YOUR SPOUSE/SIGNIFICANT OTHER?
I may have met her at Panchos the other night. She asked, “Where do I know you from?” I said, “You’re my banker” Then she told me my account was overdrawn.
