Curse and Cure

I have Bess to thank for actually giving me something to blog about today. I think this is a brilliant way to get different people to read your blog that might not normally bother... now the trick will be tagging 6 friends that give a crap.

The rules of the “6 Random Things About Me Meme”:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged, leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.


6 RANDOM THINGS ABOUT ME, JOSH

1. I am rarely not looking at a monitor of some kind. At work, i am looking at one all day designing. When i come home, i will watch TV, play a video game, or be on my computer. When i go out, I go to the movies pretty often. It's actually kinda sad now that i have put it into words... i should really do something to correct it.

2. I find most porn videos really funny.

3. I have Dermatophagia; biting the skin around the nail. Onychophagia which is basically just nail biting and Dermatillomania which is picking at my skin. Because I'm slightly obsessive-compulsive... but then again, there aren't many creatives who aren't.

4. I play World of Warcraft... I'm a level 59 Undead Rogue. I don't get to play all that much though; too much social life getting in the way i guess.

5. I've had a [government taxed] job since i was 14. From McDonald's, to today at Hallmark.

6. I was a child model.

Tag Rachel, Raymundo, Laura, Heather, Aaron, and Bret, you're it!

You're Survey Fairy,
Josh

Sucker for Strings.

Here is a belated survey i said i would take. Enjoy. edit As usual i had to go back and fix some stuff because it didn't quiet make sense.

1. What did you do in 2007 that you’d never done before?
I asked someone out in person. I drove half way across the country. I lost 30 pounds.

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Sorta. Resolutions are kinda dumb. Really you should be making goals all year round, and you shouldn't need one time of the year to tell yourself, "holy crap, I suck! Time to not suck so much!" On that note, i did tell myself around that time to start losing weight, and i did. Make any this year? No, not really.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Ew... if they were physically close that could create quite the mess... Not close to me, emotionally either

Not in this past year, or not close to me. Thank God.
