The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

10 January 2007

Take a load off Fanny

And we'll put the load right on you.

Actually, I don't expect anyone to answer any of these, but if Rachel can post this, so can I.

  1. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.

  2. Am I lovable?

  3. How long have you known me?

  4. When and how did you first find my blog?

  5. What was your first impression?

  6. Do you still think that way about my blog now?

  7. If I were an ice cream flavor, which would I be and why?

  8. What makes me happy?

  9. What makes me sad?

  10. What song (if any) reminds you of me?

  11. If you could give me anything what would it be?

  12. Do you consider me a friend?

  13. How often do you visit my blog?

  14. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn’t?

  15. Would you make a move on me?

  16. Describe me in one word.

  17. Do you feel that you could talk to me about anything and I would listen?

  18. What do you like most about me/my blog?

  19. What do you dislike most about me/my blog?

I swear, Carmen and the Devil must have worked this one up, side by side.

(One word changed in the original text, for reasons which I assume are obvious.)

If it weren't for your fence, I might nickname you "Flash." It goes downhill from there.

I'll give you a few impersonal ones. :)

4. About 6 months ago, when you commented on mine.
5. Intelligent, witty, self-depreciating.
6. Yup.
13. Daily - I keep an eye on it through Bloglines.
18. Sports coverage and weird search engine queries.
19. Nothing. It's always interesting, as is.

18. When you link to my blog, of course.

It goes downhill from there.

Told ya so, didn't I?

13. More often than I care to admit. So, I admit nothing!
14. Yes, but I can't tell you about that.
15. I can't compete with Maureen Dowd, although we do have the same shoe size.

17. Well sure, until you learned better.
18. It's easier to come here and write ridiculously long comments than keep my own blog.
19. That it doesn't have more readers than Instapundit. But, life isn't fair.

I was pretty damn dumb at 35, if you ask me. (And I am grateful for the responses; I honestly didn't expect any. Okay, maybe one or two.)

17. I'd like to think so.
18. Your laid back sense of humor - surprising how cutting it can be at times.
19. I'm not into the same music you are, but I'm six years younger as well - it's understandable.
