(A) Recommend to me: 1. a movie: Deuce Bigalow 2. a book: Blood Meridian, by Cormac McCarthy 3. a musical artist, song, or album: Mana
(B) Ask me three questions, no more, no less. Ask me anything you want.

1) What are you wearing?
2) Why is my left rear tire cracking, but not any of the other tires.
3) Where are the cheetos?

(C) Copy/Paste this into your online journal so your friends can ask you questions.

Reply on my blog, if you’d like to.

1: The Princess Bride (everyone loves the Pricess Bride god damnit)
2: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell (spans genres and is a well told set of stories.)
3: With Teeth by NIN (it will grow on you like a fungus if you give it a chance)

questions.... umm....
why can't i find a good paying job in Austin that won't make me hate my life two months into it? Why do people try to piss me off? What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

Replying to Rafael:
(1)An Apple T-shirt - because I'm fresh outta the shower and about to crash.

(2)The ozone in the air contributes to the cracking of tires, but that doesn't explain why one is cracking and not the others. If all the tires are the same model and you got them at the same time, it is possible you have a manufacturer defect. You may have diminished adhesion in the compound of that tire which can cause cracking. Just replace the darn thing.

(3)If you look under the couch, I believe there are about a handful of cheeto refugees hiding out there.

Replying to Sam:
(1) You can't find a good job in Austin because everyone else wants to live in Austin, too. And because it's soo laid back, anyone and their dog with some sort of 'specialty' can get a job here and they don't even have to bathe on a regular basis. So you're effectively competeing with *everyone*. And TheFroot has sucked all the life out of you.

(2) People in general derive happiness from being JackAsses™. Although, I have to say it only gets worse as you leave Texas.

(3)The cruising airspeed velocity of an unladen (European) Swallow is roughly 11 meters per second, or 24 miles an hour.

1a) Pretty Dirty Things
1b) Island of the Day Before, Umberto Eco
1c) Melissa Ferrick, "Crack the Mirror"

2a) What would your ideal man be like?

2b) Why mechanical engineering?

2c) After you graduate, what circumstances would make you voluntarily step foot in Lubbock again?

Replying to Azzurra:

(a)In addition to the list originally posted, my ideal man would be:
*taller than me
*have a soothing touch
*appreciate me for who i am
*not childlike, but have a sense of humor
*mildly sarcastic

(b) M.E. because it is the most versatile of all engineering. It deals with laws of the physical world and in general, just makes sense. I can go anywhere with this degree, it doesn't have the insta-visual of pastey white skinned gamers who live on a diet of Proactiv and Cheetos (though a lot of M.E.'s fit this description). And more importantly, my dad's an M.E. And I love how my dad always knew everything. And I want to be like my dad.

(c)Lets say that in the event that the love of my life would find himself stuck in mud and suddenly his non-american little sports coupe is overtaken by ginormous tumbleweeds in the dead of winter just outside campus as he was on his way to retrieve a gift for me only found in a small town just the otherside of the border... I would call Triple A, first.
