blur of the Palinode
I call this one "Blur of the Palinode". I created it using the iPhone Hipstamatic app (settings: John S lens, Kodot Verichrome film, no flash).

A - AVAILABLE: My availability is pretty close to nill these days. The Palinode has to drop by the shoe store some days so that we can see each other for five minutes while we're awake.

B - BIRTHDAY: 29 December 1972. My 20-year high school reunion is coming up this year. Time is ridiculous.

C - CRUSHING ON: Ali MacGraw from Love Story.

D - DRINK YOU LAST HAD: The last non-alcoholic drink I had was Tangiers lemon white tea, and the last alcoholic drink I had was 606 India Pale Ale from the Paddock Wood Brewing Co.

E - EASIEST PERSON TO TALK TO: The Palinode, of course.

F - FAVORITE SONG: Thirteen by Big Star.


H - HOMETOWN: I was born in Calgary, Alberta, but I think of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan as my hometown.

I - IN LOVE WITH: Lady Gaga. She ate my brain.

J - JUGGLE: Not at all. I can't throw anything in any manner that achieves a goal. I once tried to play darts and took out the pub's emergency light.

K - KILLED SOMEONE: No, but oh so close.

L - LONGEST CAR RIDE: I spent more than 40 hours on a bus between Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and Victoria, British Columbia. For part of the trip, I ended up sitting next to a woman who recited a fairly disgusting list of her physical maladies and how they impacted her life and those around her. She went on about it for three whole hours. I hope to never repeat it.



O - ONE WISH: To have what I love pay me a livable wage.


Q - QUESTIONABLE LIKE: I really like stores with cheezy name names like The Deli Lama.

R - REASON TO SMILE: My bathroom is clean, so I can now take a bath without feeling completely disgusted.

S - SONG YOU LAST HEARD: Some spanish stuff that my parents-in-law are always listening to.

T - TIME YOU WOKE UP: 8:00 a.m.

U - UNDERWEAR COLOR: Black, as always.

V - VALUES: Occasionally.

W - WORST HABIT: Picking the blackheads on my shoulders when I'm deep in thought.

X - X-RAYS YOU’VE HAD: My teeth, abdomen, and right foot.

Y - YOYOS: Do you mean that one co-worker I had or the toy? Either way, I've had one of each.

Z - ZODIAC SIGN: Capricon.

(I thefted this meme from Raymi the Minx, and then I added in the letters Q and V, which were suspiciously missing.)
