Because why not?
Rules: answer the questions below. Tag at least 10 followers.
Nickname: I had one friend in high school who called me “Mick,” short for Mickey (because I love Disney). No real nicknames these days, except for the names right-wingers call me in comment sections occasionally like “filthy commie lib.”
Birthday: November 19, 1974
Gender: Cis male
Time Zone: Pacific Daylight Time, currently (that changes to Pacific Standard Time on November 2)
What time and date is it there: 2:01am, 8/25/2014
Average hours of sleep I get each night: It varies greatly between 2 hours and 20 hours, generally, depending on how long I stay up and whether I take sleeping pills (and how many I take).
The last thing I Googled was: When does daylight savings time end? (for the question about time zones above). Before that it was an image search of this picture to see if it was legitimately from the aftermath of yesterday’s Nap Quake (it was):
My most used phrase(s): “Fair enough,” “groovy,” I hate my life,” “fucking gun nuts”
First word that comes to mind: tired
What I last said to a family member: “I’ll email you again next Thursday” (my parents are on vacation but my mom wants me to email the bills to her so she can pay them while they’re gone)
One place that makes me happy & why: Disneyland. It was always my home away from home, but especially during the rein of Evil Stepdad #1 when taking an airport shuttle there from LAX meant I didn’t have to get yelled at/punched/otherwise fear for my life at home.
How many blankets I sleep under: Usually a quilt, with another blanket on top (the blanket isn’t as comfy so it goes on top). When it’s warm, I ditch the blanket.
Favorite beverage(s): Dr. Pepper, Long Island Iced Teas if I’m boozing (which is pretty rare these days).
The last movie I watched in the cinema: Saving Mr. Banks. I’m too poor to go to the movies very often.
Three things I can’t live without:
- my family (without them I’d definitely be dead by now)
- my friends — they’re few and far between, but the ones I have mean everything.
A piece of advice for all my followers: I’m probably the last person in the world who should dispense advice. I guess that makes my advice “don’t be like me. — you’ll only be miserable.”
Not going to do the tag thing on this one, but if you want to do it, by all means go for it.
