Question quickfire

Twitter is down and both of my friends have left me to go to sleep. I suddenly feel very alone. In order to pretend I’m conversing with someone, time for some quick formspring.me questions!

What kind of clothing do you find sexy?

I like it when guys dress up nice. Like, snazzy button down shirt and dress pants. Maybe even a suit. Maybe even a fedora. It’s just nice to see something other than a nerdy t-shirt for a change (which is pretty much all I wear too, so nothing personal guys).

What is your favorite ice cream?

Chocolate with peanut butter swirled in. Not peanut butter cups – actual huge chunks of peanut butter. At Purdue, Silver Dipper does it best. Back in Munster, Oberweis is the definite winner.

What is your favorite video game?

I’m horrible at picking just one, so I won’t. My three favorite series are Civilization, Final Fantasy (including Tactics), and Pokemon. Yep, I like strategy games. Trust me, you don’t want me relying on reflexes. Unless you want to be entertained – in that case throw Resident Evil 4 into my hands.

Favorite album of all time?

My tastes change so frequently that my answer would change every year. The most recent album I’m obsessing over is Scissor Sister’s Night Work, which is fabulous. I’m a huge fan of the Scissor Sisters, and their new album definitely did not disappoint me. Unfortunately, I can’t same for some of the other bands I liked (I’m looking at you, The Killers).

Which do you prefer: I Didn’t Know I was Pregnant or Toddlers & Tiaras?

Toddlers & Tiaras. Both shows are horrifying, but for different reasons. When you watch T&T, you can scream at the screen and laugh at how awful some of the mothers act. It’s sad that those little girls are being forced into stupid pageants – but unlike IDKIWP, it doesn’t really affect you. I mean, have you seen IDKIWP? It’s fucking terrifying! “So, I was on the pill, and we were using condoms, and I had my period every month, and I didn’t gain weight, and I didn’t have morning sickness, and then out popped a baby!” Gaaah, what the fuck? That show should be used as a type of birth control, because you’ll be too afraid to have sex after watching it.

    Goddamn it, now I’m afraid to have sex.Thanks a LOT, Jen. I really needed that. What’s with all these terrifying posts in the last two posts? I demand ponies and sunshine, and absolutely no videos of people destroying Star Wars collectibles.

  2. 2

    At the risk of stating the obvious, you’re not alone. 8-)

  3. 3

    Don’t really have a response to what you said, so I’ll say the first thing that popped into my mind when I read your answers, just so you know you’re not alone.I like it when a guy is wearing an open hoodie/open button up shirt, with no shirt underneath. Nice.When you mentioned peanut butter, I really wanted this awesome peanut butter shake I haven’t had for a while.Pokemon Rules!Haven’t heard of Scissor Sisters, will look up now.Haven’t seen either show, both sound terrifing in their own way.

  4. 4

    RE: Suit, one of these days I really must get one. They seem to be a big hit with the nerdy ladies, and I do admit that they look classy as fuck. (c wut I did thar?)I would really need to go all the way and be fitted for something custom if I do that, though. My sense of style would permit no less. Also, double monocle all the way? Yes, yes. All the way.

  5. 5

    I think I’m rambling, but your male style preference reminds me of an amusing story, which probably isn’t really amusing.When I was 16 and in love with my first real girlfriend, I asked her what she liked guys to dress like.She told me she liked it when they dressed “gangsta,” but I was way too much of a white boy to pull it off.Teenagers can be so cruel.

  6. 6

    Hats are fun. Fedoras in particular.

    I didn’t count, but I think you just made more than twenty blog posts in less than 12 hours.Are you sure your blogging hasn’t gotten unhealthily obsessive?Also, you are cluttering my RSS-feed. And you are giving me the feeling that you are as religiously obsessive about your atheism as dogmatic religious people are about their religion. I myself is scientifically inclined, and pretty much agnostic. And I do believe that the kind of obsession in a world view that you display leads to a counterproductive rigidity of thought, regardless if you happen to be right or not.

  8. 8

    Yeah, they can be. And still are. But honestly, it’s how the whole thing fits together. You may be too much of a white boy to pull off “gangsta”, but some other guy is too much of a “gangsta” to pull off a double monacle.

  9. 9

    Dude, don’t you read the blogs you have in your RSS-feed? She’s been talking about this for well over a week now.It’s a 24-hour blogathon for charity. A post every 30 minutes.If you’re going to comment, at least have the decency to do a bit of reading first.Further, a grand total of what….ONE post currently on the front page is about religion? And that one isn’t even written by Jen, it was a guest post.

  10. 10

    No way, dude. The double monocle is for everyone. It knows no boundaries of race, gender, sexuality or creed. The only people rejected by the double monocle are the blind. All the way.

  11. 11

    I would love some ponies and sunshine. And if unicorns and candycorn could be added, I’d read it over and over. And over again if I’m still awake.

  12. 12

    Doctor Who-The Big Bang for example.

  13. 13

    Perhaps they could even be synthetic unicorns, engaged in assailing monuments to the stars, and trailing a rainbow from each hoof.

  14. 14

    Then I shall have to try this double monocle, probably with a double tophat and pinky out.Haha, couldn’t keep a straight face even while typing that.

  15. 15

    Fezzes are cool.

  16. 16

    Or Indiana Jones.

  17. 17

    If there’s a pot of gold at the end of each rainbow, I’m all for it.I feel like that should be one of the pictures Jen mentioned earlier in the blogathon.

  18. 18

    I don’t think I’ve ever worn a fez. I’m not sure thats a look I could pull off.

  19. 19

    Double top hat, are you crazy? It’s like you’re just making up silly stuff as you go or something.This is serious.

  20. 20

    Totally serious. There’s no way I would make stuff up about monocles and tophats. The double tophat is very practical. It allows you to take off one hat to be polite, while hiding your valuables in the other.

    Hahaha, there’s a counter on every post that says ‘I am participating in Blogathon 2010 to raise money for the Secular Student Alliance’ and at the end of each post there is a message that says “This is post 41 of 49 of Blogathon. Pledge a donation to the Secular Student Alliance here.” with links, plus she’s been talking about it for a week and you’re seriously cattily commenting about her posting too much? I’m sorry guy, you have not won the internet. There’s always tomorrow. :D

    Otherwise known as spam…

    David Jansson

    If I read every post in my RSS-feed I wouldn’t do anything else, ever…I am not referring to the posts about religion, mostly. I am referring to all the posts about Atheism. Atheism for the sake of Atheism is making a religion out of atheism, and thus, if you ask me, you kind of miss the good points of atheism…

    I own a fedora. I’m rather proud of it. It’s probably the only item of clothing I’ve ever owned that has gotten me compliments from total strangers.

  27. 27

    Same here.

  28. 28

    As a fellow Civ-playing atheist, do you also feel a tad irked at just how darned useful religion is in Civ 4? Not that it stops me sending my Taoist crusaders to crush the infidels under their feet.

  29. 29

    It’s not spam if you ask for it.You subscribed. You asked for it. It is not a blogger’s responsibility to post infrequently enough that you’re able to keep up with your RSS feed.

  30. 30

    In the ancient world, Religion was somewhat useful. Skycake man. Skycake.

  31. 31

    Given it’s kept people whose skills are mainly wearing silly hats in power for thousands of years, I don’t doubt it is. I just want to play the Evil Atheist Empire of Darwin that Pat Robertson keeps telling me about!

    David Jansson

    Sending 50 posts in 24 hours to get people to donate money isn’t spam? Was I informed of this when I added the RSS feed in my reader? Guh. Goodbye.

  33. 33

    1) They were not “sent.” They were posted to a private website, which you explicitly requested to have updates sent to you from.2) Most of the posts did not even mention the donations, save for the small line at the end of each post3) Lets look at the definition of spam, shall we?”Spam is the abuse of electronic messaging systems (including most broadcast media, digital delivery systems) to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately. ..”Key word, unsolicited. Once again, you SIGNED UP for this. Nobody forced you. You solicited these emails.4) Why in the world would you be informed of an annual event when you joined the RSS feed? You’re just grasping at straws because you’re desperate to have this be anyone’s fault but your own for posting something which makes you look like an absolute buffoon. The community surrounding this blog has been pretty excited about this event during the lead-up to it, and as far as I can tell you’re the only one who’s upset about an influx of content. So…Blogathon should not have happened because ONE person who doesn’t even read every post didn’t want it to?

    Then unsubscribe and quit being a whiner, guy. Sheesh.

  35. 35

    OBERWEIS. I. Love. Oberweis. Everytime I go out to Highland/Scherville, I try to get Oberweis. It’s just so…amazing.

  36. 36

    Also, I’m glad I can comment on some random person’s blog about cities and have them know what I’m talking about. It makes me happy.

  37. 37

    And I like it when random people comment on my blog with cities that I know about, yay :DFor some reason I haven’t had Oberweis yet. I plan on correcting that soon.

  38. 38

    O.O You must remedy this as soon as possible. Go there, get ice-cream, get some more ice-cream for me, and we shall have ice-creamgasms forever.

  39. 39

    Also, while you’re at it, go out to Hammond and get ice-cream from Dairy Belle. It’s some of the best soft-serve I’ve ever had.
