A FAMILY-STYLE MEME

Intercepted from Valerie at the St. Francis Academy Blog.

WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? Nope. My parents were originally going to name me Christopher Michael Page, then had a change of heart thinking I'd never spell it - thus, Brian Michael Page. I then went and named my first born Christopher Ryan Page.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Probably the last big argument I had - last Fall. Hey, those things happen in the best of marriages too, ya know.
DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? I find it to be "normal" under a typical guy's standards, though I do drive people nuts with my signature - especially my mother. I keep trying to explain to her that it's my signature and not the body of a letter.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? This "kielbasa loaf" that I used to get from a place called Central Falls Provision Company - run by a Polish-American family. Since I can't find that stuff anymore, I'd have to say liverwurst next.
DO YOU HAVE KIDS? Yup - four of them.
IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? Maybe, once I can figure me out, ha ha ha!
DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? Does a bear poop in the woods?
DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Nope - had them butchered out when I was four.
WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? If this was about 20 years ago, yeah. Now, no.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Cocoa Pebbles, hands down!
DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Nope.
DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? Mentally, yes. Physically, well - I try to let my mental game control my physical game.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Either Chocolate Fudge Brownie or Cookies and Cream.
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Attitude.
RED OR PINK? Fire engine Red!
WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? I'm my own worst critic, finding faults in me that others don't notice.
WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? My father (+1981)
WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? Grey sweats and white sneakers
WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE? A can of Chef-Boy-ar-Dee Ravioli - right out of the can!
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? The sound of my air conditioner running
IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? Flesh tone
FAVORITE SMELLS? Incense at Mass, campfire, the neighbors' wood stove
WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? A friend of Brian's (my son Brian, that is) - I said "hello", she said "hello, is Brian there?"
FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH? Baseball, softball, bowling (especially candlepin)
HAIR COLOR? Dark brown, with some new salt (grey) added.
EYE COLOR? Brown
DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? No, but I do wear bi-focals.
FAVORITE FOOD? Scallops - that's the first thing I usually look for in any sit-down restaurant!
SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? Happy endings, especially if they're really funny - like the tail end of Animal House.
LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? Baby Sitters Club (actually Brittany was watching it, but our computers are in the same room)
WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? Black
SUMMER OR WINTER? Summer by a longshot. Winter sucks in Rhode Island. It's lovely in New Hampshire. Ugly down here.
HUGS OR KISSES? Both
FAVORITE DESSERT? Oreos
WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? none currently
WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? the "Finale" logo (mouse pad came with Finale software I bought a couple of years ago)
WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON T.V. LAST NIGHT? I watched the Red Sox smoke the Indians 14-9. WOOHOO!
FAVORITE SOUND? Ka-boom!
ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? Definitely the Beatles. The Stones have some really good stuff, and some not so good stuff. The Beatles have more good stuff. Plus they were a big influence on my favorite band, Raspberries. Speaking of which, Raspberries Live on Sunset Strip will be coming out this Tuesday! I have a limited edition coming - WOOHOO!
WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? U.S. Virgin Islands
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? Outside of music, nah.
WHERE WERE YOU BORN? Northern Rhode Island

Whoever wants to take this meme up, feel free.
Peace,
BMP

Winter is lovely in New Hampshire? That's news to me... Or were you perhaps talking about winter in the mountains? That, I'll grant, is quite pretty. In any case, I suppose any snow you don't have to shovel yourself can be quite pretty. :)

It's not called "flesh" anymore, Brian.
It's called "peach."
