i want everyone to know that it took me more than a month to write this 101 random things about me meme...

In an effort to stop the emails (mostly from my grandmother, who seems to be a little obsessed with email forwards), as well as to let everyone know a little bit more about me, I have finally done it. I've finished one of those meme things. Sooo, let's kick the tires and light the fires:

1. I grew up in pretty much the same hometown as Fantasia Barrino.
2. The only food I loathe is egg salad.
3. I ride with my cell phone under my leg on vibrate so that I know if someone calls me over the loud music I play while I drive.
4. My favorite movie as a kid was The Goonies. I watched it so much that the VHS copy actually broke one day when my little brother was playing it. So I put him in the dryer and wouldn't let him out.
5. I've seen Aladdin, The Little Mermaid AND Beauty and the Beast - ALL in their Disney On Ice versions.
6. My favorite place to eat in LA is a Mediterranean food "hole in the wall."
7. I joined Myspace because of gang pressure. Add me and we'll be best Myspace buddies. Seriously. Do it. It'll be awesome.
8. Sometimes I just get an extreme urge to play Rollerball.
9. I once got a haircut at a hotel in Vegas and didn't remember any of it.
10. Someday I'm going to buy a Slip 'N Slide and spend forever finding the proper grassy area for it.
11. I think one of my windshield wipers wipes improperly. And, to tell you the truth, it's really freaking me out.
12. My 2nd favorite Corey/Corey movie is Dream A Little Dream. I even have the soundtrack With Richard Marx's "Rock On" on tape.
13. My favorite word is fiduciary.
14. I keep drinking Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper and I can't stop.
15. This site is my new favorite music site.
16. I didn't have a sweet sixteen party like those girls on MTV. I had mine at a bowling alley.
17. My favorite Atari game was Pitfall. But I was horrible at jumping over the lake with the alligator heads.
18. Rememember #14? Since writing that, I've gotten another DCVDP.
19. I worry that this blog has become too gossipbloggy.
20. I can't stand Kelsey Grammer.
21. I've had the same alarm clock since I was 12.
22. My favorite current band is The Black Keys.
23. I wish I could clone myself to comment on blogs I like more.
24. I still quote from Multiplicity and I don't know why.
25. "Hey Steve. Want some more pizza, Steve?"
26. See? Who would get that anyway?
27. I've lost three cell phones in the past year.
28. As a kid, I was extremely good at foosball. Now? Not so much.
29. In college, I flew out to LA and got wasted - all on Steven Speilberg's tab.
30. I don't mind bugs. I don't mind snakes. But I HATE rats.
31. I still have a portable CD player in my car.
32. This CD is currently in that player.

34. If LA folks haven't been to the Museum of TV & Radio in Beverly Hills, you should. You can watch ANY TV SHOW you want!! It's amazing.
35. My dad used to look like Steven Seagal. So, as a kid, we'd go to restaurants and sometimes get VIP seating.

37. Remember that song "Cantaloop?" That song was awesome.
38. My current favorite TV show is "24."
39. I have the cheapest ice trays imaginable in my freezer.
40. My neighbors must think I'm an extremely violent person b/c of #39.
41. I've always driven a Ford vehicle. In hindsight, a terrible idea.
42. When eating at a restaurant, I prefer sitting facing the door. Just in case of a fire. Or, you know, an asteroid.
43. I blame all of my childhood cavities on Skittles.
44. My senior year of high school, I had two Beta fish named G Love and Special Sauce. When I left for college, I had my grandmother take care of them. Her one instruction was that she had to talk to them using their proper names. That was fun.

2 things - swiffer wet jets don't get things clean enough for my taste, they leave a weird residue, so I feel you on the antiswiffer sentiment. secondly, thanks for the cell phone/driving tip, i never hear my phone when i'm in the car because i'm busy playing loud music and singing along like i'm a superstar. because i am a superstar.  

Posted by Blogger Keith on 9:23 AM

I keep my phone in my pocket on vibe/ring so I can feel it ring as well when I'm blasting music in the car.

I wonder if the Museum of Television & Radio has last week's episode of Lost that I missed because the cable went out...

I think you have the coolest blog. Your 101 things about you make me sound like your clone. I have a Goonies poster hanging above my headboard, and I'm 24. I am also a fan of Corey/Corey and all the other things you mentioned. I think it is scary how similar we are. I don't mean to freak you out, it was just like I was reading my own blog when I randomly found yours. Keep it up because I'm wildly entertained by your writing and the content you choose to talk about. Awesome blog.

I admit it, I love Mulitplicity. I mean come on, with classic lines like:

Steve - I'm gonna buy you something
Clone - A Chainsaw?
Steve - Or a book...

My roommate and I still quote that movie all the time.  

Posted by Blogger justin on 10:21 AM

Leslie - Re: Swiffer Wet Jets, THAT'S WHAT I SAID!!!

Keith - Call them. They probably have it.

Blake - Dude. It's just like The Island. I'm taking your liver.

Manda - "My life's a shambles. I need pie." I can go on for days.

there's only one meme everyone should be doing.  

Posted by Blogger Mary Mo on 11:14 AM

You know, I used to call my mother all the time and tell her she'd won a free manicure. Being that she's my mother, shouldn't she have recognized my voice?

Anyhoo, the 101 things were hilarious. I have to say that one of my not so secret movie obsessions... Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  

Posted by Blogger Amy on 3:49 PM

you totally denied my friend request. thanks!  

Posted by Blogger Jenny on 4:33 PM

how tall is your shower head?  

Posted by Blogger Kelditty on 6:32 PM

girlfriend? I thought you were gay. sorry.  

Posted by Blogger justin on 7:00 PM

Meme - Mmmhmm.

Mary Mo - The scene in TMNT 2 where they bust in on the Vanilla Ice concert might be the best scene ever put on film.

Amy - Did not.

Jenny - About 6 ft?

Kelditty - Nope. Not gay. Huge surprise, I know.  

Posted by Blogger Hilary on 8:59 PM

I know someone who was on Situation: Comedy. Does that help?  

Posted by Blogger Julie_Gong on 6:47 AM

The "Out of 5" music site you mentioned(#15) does the music ever change or is always the same music? Just thought I'd ask. I enjoy the current music on the covers that eclipsed the originals but now I'm hooked and want more!  

Posted by Blogger Page Buckley on 7:07 AM

You're very brave and have a helluva sense of humour to be that open. And I'm with you on the ice cream cake. Normal cake is so overrated. Cool blog.  

Posted by Blogger Avatar on 10:33 AM

//I keep my phone in my pocket on vibe/ring so I can feel it ring as well when I'm blasting music in the car.//

See, I just sit on mine. I love it when people call me.

I've been blogging for 3 years, and I STILL haven't done the 101 things meme. Beat THAT!  

Posted by Blogger Cory on 3:31 PM

Hilarious list, but...

John Steinbeck? Did you ever read "The Red Pony"?


Posted by Blogger justin on 4:11 PM

Don't fight it, Cory.

You loved "The Red Pony." You love "My Little Pony." And ponies in general.  

Posted by Blogger Nanette on 3:41 PM

I shouldn't read your blog at work. I'm cracking up in my cube and am probably going to get in trouble. Then you'd be able to add #102 to your list - My blog once got a girl fired.

Once I played AOC, I did not know how to get strong, someone told me that you must have aoc gold.He gave me some conan gold, he said that I could buy age of conan gold, but I did not have money, then I played it all my spare time. From then on, I got some cheap aoc gold, if I did not continue to play it, I can sell aoc money to anyone who want.
