Long and boring details about Crayon's quirks:
First off, here is a picture of me. It's somewhere around 5 or 6 years old. I'm too lazy to upload a more recent picture so I grabbed this off my profile from another website
Favorite bands of all time: Rage Against the Machine, Simon and Garfunkel, Enya, Cranberries, Poe, Trance (though I'm pretty picky on what I like on that. Mostly slower and just mellow. Tempo of no more than 90-ish, but no less than 80-ish and it has to be fairly complex). Anything classical. Not too hot on piano though. I like strings mostly.
Least favorite Music Genre: Country. Like nails on a chalkboard. Every time I hear a country song playing, all I hear is some old dog howling.
Favorite color: Blue, lavendar. To me, blue signifies calmness and coolness, things which I strive to be. I choose lavendar as more accurately my color though, because Even though I strive for the calm and coolness of blue, I have that hint of energy and..not so much rage, but impatience that goes with red. But I lean more towards the blue side of lavendar, because I've gotten tons better over the years. Red and Blue make more of a purple than a lavendar. Lavendar has some white thrown into it. I like to think that the reason why I am leaning more towards the blue end of that, is because of God, thus God signifies the white. That's also where 'crayon violent' derives from. The color violet is in the same family, but I chose it because I could do a play on words with it: violen
t. It just sounded a lot cooler than Crayon Lavendar.
I hate sports. For instance, football (american): Watching big guys get paid a lot to run around in tights just doesn't appeal to me. Wrestling: legit sport or not, again, watching two guys in spandex grabbing at each other just doesn't appeal to me. Overall, watching other people get paid a lot of money to play a game just doesn't appeal to me. I'm down for playing
some street hockey though - old school style where at the end of the day there's a 100% chance of going home with cuts scrapes and bruises, 75% chance sprained ankle etc.. 50% chance someone broke something
It's just not cool any other way
Things I watch on TV: Lost (haven't watched any of season 3 yet. I'm waiting for the dvd because I don't like having to wait a whole week between episodes). It's not normally my type of series, but my wife likes it, and one day during season 1 she was watching it and I was in the room and saw some of it, and it's not so much that I *LIKE* it, but that I just wanna see what happens next/how it ends.
I do like watching the new series called Heroes. I mean, it's nothing all that *special* but it's somewhat entertaining enough to watch.
I like Comedies, old Kung Fu flicks, and Anime. Even chick-flick comedies, though that's pushing it. As long as the romance part is in the background as some underlying plot, and comedy is the centerpiece, that's fine. Acceptable: 50 First Dates. Unacceptable: Sliding Doors.
Some random favorite movies of mine: Evil Dead 2, Army of Darkness, anything by Hayao Miyazaki (except Nausiica; I didn't really care for it) but especially Spirited Away. His recent release: Howl's Moving Castle was thoroughly enjoyable, and to be honest, I think it might de-throne Spirited Away on my list of favorite Miyazaki films. The debate is still open on that, though. Anything Kevin Smith. What did you all think of Clerks II? I liked it, but man, I think they could have done better. I still liked it though. Office Space, Vampire Hunter D, Ninja Scroll, most of Jet Li's stuff, and the list goes on.
I also like watching Avatar. This gets its own paragraph because I thought I'd share a particularly amusing (IMO) anecdote about Avatar. About a month ago I was chillin' on the computer and suddenly I hear my 4 year old crying from the bathroom. So I go in to investigate and he's sitting on the floor with a cup of water between his legs crying. I asked him what was wrong and he told me that he tried and tried and tried but he just can't water bend. I about shit my pants laughing at that, which would have been okay, cuz I was already in the bathroom.
I'm compulsively sarcastic. I can't help it. Someone says something or does something, and it just comes out. At best, people call me an asshole for that; at worst, I keep getting into trouble. Lol, I just can't help it. It's like Tourette Syndrome where my 'tic' is sarcasm, lol. Actually, I wouldn't necessarily call it sarcasm (even though people usually take it that way). I personally like to call it bluntly pointing out the truth and/or irony of the situation at hand. I will concede that I have no tact whatsoever, but that is not the same as telling lies or being an asshole. Take for instance the provibial woman asking her man if she's fat. Instead of dancing around the subject, I just tell her she's fat. You aren't gonna really feel good about yourself unless you're honest with yourself enough to recognize things you don't like and then fix them. Closing your eyes and listening to lies does not solve the problem.
I've been a smoker for about 12 years. About 2 months ago I decided to quit (again, for real this time, I swear!
) but I still smoke about 2-3 cigs a week, which any smoker can tell you that that's nothing, and it is certainly a lot better than the pack a day I smoked. But I should be able to stop even that much pretty soon, so hopefully this time it should be for really real. I don't drink, as I don't like the taste of alcohol. I used to smoke a lot of pot and do a lot of acid. A lot. Not even gonna get into how much or even drug related stories. But I've been sober of that for 7 years now.
My favorite kind of food is mexican food. Enchiladas, fajitas, burritos, tortilla soup, mm... even just plain old beans and rice will do it for me. I'm pretty good at making enchiladas and fajitas, and people constantly harass me to make tortilla soup. I also enjoy making breads (by hand, no bread machine), like french bread or ciabatta bread. mm...bread. I love the smell of freshly baked bread. <drools>
I hate getting up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. It takes me forever to go to sleep in the first place. I feel I'm being gypped on sleep. Stupid bladder.
If I had to choose between pirates, vikings or ninjas, I'd go for the ninjas. Well, I don't know... ninjas are cool, but come on, pirates! And vikings! There needs to be an epic battle involving all 3.
umm, My first born son's name is Exodus. People give me odd looks on that. If this next Kid is a girl, we're naming her Genesis. I'm sure we'll get just as many odd looks from that.
I think i'm borderline obsessive compulsive. For instance, If I count money, I have to count it 3 times. First time because it's being counted, 2nd time to make sure it's the same as 1st, 3rd time to make sure I didn't happen to consistently mis-count twice in a row. If I come up with a different number the 2nd time, I have to count a minimum of 4 times now. The end goal is that I must come up with the same number 3 times. If I turn something off, like lights or an oven, I have to go back and check it again to make sure I turned it off. I don't simply do the off-on-off-on-off thing people do with light switches though. I have to actually leave the room and come back a minute or 2 later. The whole point is that I may have forgotten to turn it off. I can obviously see that I turned it off when I'm standing there turning it off, so flipping the switch on and off is pointless and stupid. But I don't really have germ issues or anything like that. Although, my wife and I are both pretty adamant about taking showers before our bedroom adventures...does that count?
Hmm..okay, I prefer to wear slacks and a t-shirt. I don't really care for jeans. They are too hot and constricting and heavy. That's why I like slacks. Nothing fancy; walmart brand will do. I also like wearing "slipper" shoes - shoes without shoelaces that just slip onto your feet. Less hassle in putting them on, and they generally aren't as hot or constricting. I don't really care for dress shoes like that though, like loafers. They are too hard and usually cut into the front of my feet, where the tongues usually are. Although my 'favorite' colors are blue/lavendar, I generally prefer to dress in dark or pale earthtones. I don't really like wearing shirts with logos/words on them. This includes band shirts, witty remarks, etc.. I refuse to be a walking advertisement, even for things I like. Besides, even if the shirt is witty, the tackiness of wearing it overpowers the wittiness. Maybe if I could get away with wearing something like "OMG Just Shut the F*ck up already you talk too much" (without the *) then I might go for that...kinda ironic considering how long winded this post is, huh? AhahAHaha..shut up.
Umm..what else, what else.. well there really isn't a whole lot else to tell, I guess.
