My friend Lupo sent me this survey. These were my answers.

5. If you were a crayon, what color would you be? Burnt Sienna.

6. Where did you go on your honeymoon? Vic and I once faked a honeymoon at a B&B in Charleston, S.C., so I guess I have technically been on a honeymoon. (We had the Honeymoon Suite, and we stayed up all night watching the Oscars. I am, I repeat, so gay.)

15. What's the next CD you're going to get? Macy Gray's newest one, probably.

16. Did you ever wear braces? No, I wasn't one of those poor, unfortunate freaks. Oh wait, I had leg braces post-surgeries. Do those count?

17. Best memories: My stepfather beating the hell out of a hotel smoke detector out of frustration until it fell off the wall because he had to indulge in a pack of Winstons. My stepfather urinating in the middle of the road on our way out of a Lake Lanier campground to show his displeasure with the service we received while there. My stepfather, having witnessed a fatal helicopter crash, getting interviewed on television about it and making all the crashing helicopter noises and descriptive arm-waving movements that he could during his interview. Winning almost every spelling bee I ever entered. Having Coretta Scott King call me "really cute" when she saw me sing with the Atlanta Boy Choir when I was 5. Bringing my She-Ra dolls to Fourth Grade Show-And-Tell, only to have Sheila Scroggs chase me around the playground for them.

18. Favorite restaurant? T.G.I.McScratchy's GoodeTyme Foodrinkery (Very funny, Lupo. It reminds me of when I told you we should go eat at some "generic American cuisine place.")

My favorite is, surprisingly enough, the American Cafe or, if I'm feeling the urge for a Kickin' Chicken Sandwich, Zaxby's.

19. Siblings and their ages? Brother named Dan, age 25. Stepbrother named Jeremy, age 28.

Roller disco (Liar. Your life ain't TALES OF THE CITY.)

25. Do you like scary or happy movies better? Both.

35. Favorite smell? New car.

36. Least favorite smell? Old lady.

37. Worst feeling in the world? I'm not sure if it's a defined feeling, but the sentiment is usually expressed like, "No one loves me. I want to die."

38. How many rings before you answer the door? However long it takes me to put on clothes and turn off the VCR ...

39. Future child's name? Jonathan or Nellie, to remind me of the person who sent me this.

40. Glass half empty or half full? Half empty. I'm a damn realist.

47. What is your #1 obsession? Ask my therapist what his name is THIS week. I also like writing Amazon reviews.

48. Did you like this questionnaire? It passed the time pleasantly, and I liked that I tried, once again, to be both honest and shocking.

49. When is your birthday? June 21. (Oh, I see ... This was all a thinly-veiled reminder that Lupo's birthday is approaching. Very clever.)

50. How many kids do you have? The last kid I had was named Ryan, but he doesn't call me anymore.
