Borrowed foolishness

I like foolishness, it helps us see ourselves through new eyes, sometimes. Scary to think about, depending on what you generally find yourself doing. Snapshot of the soul; does anyone else hear the tell tale pounding of my heart? I like to think, If I were Dorian Grey, my snapshot would still look pretty decent.

  3. Name Four People That Know You the Best:
    Mike, Andrea, Calvin, Katja
  4. Name Four Things You’d Never Wear:

  14. 10 people that rock your socks (in no particular order):
    • Heinlein, and his patriarch and matriarch, Lazarus and Maureen
    • Rand, and her patriarch, John Galt
    • Buddha,
    • Ghandi,
    • Hyacinthe, Queen of my Knights, my Goddess manifested into a physical being I can worship, as well as lean on,
    • Jefferson
    • Einstein
    • Nietzsche, and his patriarch, Zarathustra
    • Franklin
    • Edison
  15. What do you most like about your body? The way my skin fits so nicely, and is waterproof to boot. How cool is that?
  16. And least: my need to sleep; strains of Aerosmith play in the background
  17. How many fillings do you have? 2
  18. Do you think you’re good looking?: I think I am attractive, that goes way deeper than looks. But I am satisfied with what I have done with the place.
  19. Do other people often tell you that you that you’re good looking?: I’ve been told I’m “yummy” or even “pretty” lately that I get to grow my hair back. I know I have a good body, in damn good shape for 37; good for sex, keeps me motivated. I think I have a good presence, but I wouldn’t call it good looks. More a pride in what I got, no matter what it is, grok?
  20. Do you look like any celebrities? was told by one of my soldiers I reminded him of Tom Beringer; I don’t quite see it, except in personality with some of his roles. More like Gunny in Heartbreak Ridge.

Well, what a refreshing exercise in introspection and mirror gazing.
