The Disgruntled Chemist passed me this meme:
Three names you go buy (that won't give away your identity): I guess I'm not much of a nickname person, a couple of people in my past have called me "Janie" but it never really stuck.
Three screen names you've had: I occasionally borrow the dog's names -- Kobe Rose (Kobe's name is Kobe Matisse Rose, but I only gave him the Kobe part, he came with the rest), Katie Nichols (because of our house in Nichols Canyon), and LucyDogg. I try not to say anything that would embarrass them.
Three physical things you like about yourself: Since the question is pointedly about things that I like, not what other people like, that narrows it down -- I have good skin, a small waist and nice hands.
Three physical things you don't like about yourself: Thin hair, short legs, and the natural coloring of Sissy Spacek in a blizzard.
Three parts of your heritage: Irish, German and Cherokee Indian.
Three things you are wearing right now: Loony Tunes t-shirt, Ugg boots and a sports bra.
Three favorite bands/musical artists: Today? Ralph Stanley, Sonny Rollins and the Velvet Underground. It will be different tomorrow. Maybe even later today.
Three favorite songs: Oh that's just too hard. How about three songs I'm loving right now? The Jeff and Vida Band's Blessed But Not Favored, The Czars' Paint the Moon, and Tammy Faye Starlight's Highway 69.
Three things you want in a relationship: Love of dogs (specifically MY dogs), natural antipathy to Tucker Carlson, ability to clear a jammed vacuum cleaner.
Three physical things about the preferred sex that appeals you: Healthy appetite, thoughtful expression, stronger than me (I don't want to have to do all the heavy lifting).
Three of your favorite hobbies: cooking, quilting, pyromania.
Three things you want to do really badly right now: Own a luxury SUV that gets 50 mpg, finish my paintings that are due on Tuesday, spoon with Katie.
Three things that scare you: Big ships, "family values," large gatherings of white people.
Three of your everyday essentials: Coffee and a muffin with Kobe, tennis ball launcher, high-speed internet.
Three careers you have considered/are considering: Trapeze artist, roller derby queen, putting out oil well fires.
Three place you want to go on vacation: Chandigahr, Brasilia, Machu Picchu.
Three kids' names you like: Stromille, Lattrell, Moochie.
Three things you want to do before you die: Have a one-woman gallery show in New York, teach the dogs to sit when someone comes to the door, bake pies with Patti Smith.
Three ways you are stereotypically a boy: I eat fast food, love basketball and hate to ask for directions.
Three ways you are stereotypically a girl: I feel guilty about eating fast food, watch basketball for its soap-opera qualities and will eventually break down and admit I don't know where I am..
Three celeb crushes: Nick Lea, Ed Harris, George Lynch (of the Hornets, not Dokken).
I guess it's my turn to pass it on, so I'll hand it off to J. Crowley at Enter the Jabberwock, the guys at Alternate Brain (who will write about their cool wives, I like that) and Mark at Recidivist Journals (because I think we need the unabashedly gay Brit voice here, and also because he has an excellent vocabulary).
