Hoc Est Qui Sumus

Friday Five

1. What does it say in the signature line of your emails?

I don't believe in that kind of shit. If I thought I could accomplish something by passing on the same piece of wisdom every time I sent an e-mail, it would take most of my life to find something that had that kind of staying power. So I would either cycle through them too rapidly for people to notice, or I would just have my contact info in it. I opted for the latter.

2. Did you have a senior quote in your high school yearbook? What was it? If you haven't graduated yet, what would you like your quote to be?

"Do the best you can with what you've got", I think. I was a yearbook editor my senior year, and we replaced all the trite/lame/pointless captions for the pictures with relevant quotes that would last longer.

3. If you had vanity plates on your car, what would they read? If you already have them, what do they say?

DOC GNU, GREP SED, or something equally lame.

I might also pull the Al Gore, and get a personalized license plate that is a random selection of letters and numbers.

4. Have you received any gifts with messages engraved upon them? What did the inscription say?

Not really - just my name or initials, with the date of wedding on it.

5. What would you like your epitaph to be?

Either "Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt", or "He had a lover's quarrel with the world", but they wouldn't exactly count as original.

I will settle for my name and the years of my life, in the end, I think. Maybe the year I die will be prime in a cool way, or something.

  • Good sing-along songs?

    O Gentle Readers! I am trying to come up with good songs to practice on my acoustic guitar. Ideally, they are the type of songs that are fun to sing…

  • It can always look up

    Remember: the man who played Richard M. Nixon in Frost/Nixon is the same man who played Skeletor in The Masters of the Universe.
