Alert the Media. It's Meme Monday.

Yep, it's time for another scintillating look at the magical mystery that is me. This was a fun one -- easy and different... feel free to steal. (You know if you had this on your blog, I'd totally steal it...)

Nice undereye bags, there, Insomnia Woman.

2. How much cash do you have on you?
$3.72. In change.

3. What’s a word that rhymes with DOOR?
Rapport

4. Favorite planet?
I’m rather partial to Earth, to be honest. It’s done me right thus far, although Mars does have a bit of sex-hay appeal to it.

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
Sprezzatura. (Apropos of nothing, I HATE MY #()&@#$ phone.)

6. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?
Gotta be “Crazy Train,” which is my parents’ home phone…

New Balance trail runners

12. What does your watch look like?
Timex, gold/silver, Target special

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?
Watching the latest episode of “Real Housewives of Orange County” because I couldn’t get to sleep. By the way, those women are terrible. Seriously – who acts like that? Ridiculous.

And yet, still I watch.

21. Favorite age you have been so far?
30 was good. Had the world by the tail. But I like to think the best is yet to come…

My “table” at the Algonquin lobby, taken last week on my NYC jaunt.

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?
“Be a good boy. Listen and learn a lot today.”

The money. Flying is what airplanes are for.

26. Do you like someone?
You betcha.
