12:24 am - meme, part deux (from ancient discogravy post)
^^This is the problem with LJ, we all think we are so close, and we know nothing about each other. I'm going to rectify it. I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me, something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

(Optional) Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you.^^

I was in the navy for six years. That's STILL a pretty popular facial hairstyle in the military, especially considering it and completely clean shaven are the only two allowed. It took a while to completely change my socialization patterns and standards from the ones I picked up in the military.

At the moment? It's a toss-up between surviving the Nuvox layoff by starting my own business from scratch on zero notice, or the FreeBSD wiki I created and manage. ( http://www.freebsdwiki.net - a sort of encyclopedic volume of "how to administer and maintain FreeBSD servers.")

Hmmm. If we're talking like an actual whole DVD thing, the one and only would be Fencer of Minerva. It's fucking AWFUL, too. Sadly, I own it. Unless maybe it's one of the ones I sold to the used DVD store a few weeks ago, and it very well might be.

OTOH if we're just talking weird 2-minute clips on the internet of girls who look like they're 12 years old with double-D tits and dinner plates for eyes getting violated by tentacle-beasts, hell, I have no damn idea.

... but if you mean first porn CARTOON, not necessarily anime, there was a hardcore porn version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves playing on the big screen at this club called Scooter's that everybody went to after the prom. It was... special. Not japanese at all, so far as I could tell. But special.

A little from column A, a little from column B. I did plan to go to college with money earned from the Navy (which really wasn't very feasible with what money was available from the military for college back then, as it turned out) but my life plan also included being in the Guard after my enlistment was up so I could retire from the military after 20 years, at all of 37 years old.

Problem was, after six years of the Navy, it turned out that one weekend a month is about five days a month more than I was willing to devote to the Navy anymore. So it was like "fuck that." So no retirement, and also no college. Poor life choices, in retrospect, but shit, they're the ones I made, and things seem to be settling down pretty nicely now. Better late than never. =)

are you a dog person or a cat person? why?

I'm affectionate towards both, but I prefer cats. Dogs kinda HAVE to like you, it's hard wired. They're sorta slavish. If a cat likes you, though, it MEANS something, because he's perfectly capable of thinking "fuck off you hairless ass" and sauntering off and doing his own thing if he thinks you suck.

What is the one thing (not necessarily a material object) in your life that you simply could not do without?

... oxygen?

Life's too complex to get by with only one thing. Can't really pick just one. I dunno; pick "love" if we're doing the general "stuff you actually physically have to have doesn't count" thing. =)
