What's the most clever comeback you didn't use at work, because it wouldn't have been PC, appropriate, nice, whatever?

<b>Did you have lessons in anything outside of school when you were a kid? An instrument, dancing, painting?</b><br><br><br><br>
Nah. Unfortunately we didn't have money for that when I was a kid, so all I got were the free lessons through my school. I played violin from age 9 to 15, and cello from 12 to 15. I really liked the cello and sometimes wish I'd kept up with it. But not so much that I'm willing to pay for lessons & stuff now...

This probably doesn't count, but when people say "irregardless." drives me ****in nuts! But since that ISN'T EVEN A WORD, I'll say "moist"... that word is many kinds of wrong.<br><br><br><br><b>What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?</b><br><br>
Photography that evokes emotion in me - especially portraits done well.<br><br>
I stumbled across one guy's flickr site and his photography just mesmerized me. <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/stoneth/" target="_blank">http://www.flickr.com/photos/stoneth/</a> While I don't care much for portraits myself (I like architecture & nature), this guy's work is an exception. Many of his portraits make me feel like I want to cry - not really a turn-on, I suppose, but definitely a strong reaction.<br><br><br><br>
Beautiful natural settings turn me on creatively/emotionally as well. Like when the sun is shining through the forest canopy and light filters through, shining rays of light onto various plants & mossy rocks.<br><br><br><br>
... I need to go hiking more.<br><br><br><br><b>What turns you off?</b><br><br>
I was at the DMV earlier today and it really stressed me out. It was crowded with people who were being loud, letting their small children run around everywhere, people were yelling... it was chaos and I couldn't wait to get out of there. I was sitting next to these two young couples (they were probably 19-21 years old) who were talking about having children (they each had one, and one couple had another on the way) and I just felt so completely out of touch with that life, but that it could have very easily been me had I made a couple of slightly different choices. Not that my choices were better/worse, it just hit me how different I am than I was 11 years ago.<br><br><br><br><b>What is your favorite curse word?<br><br></b>****. hehehehe. the f-bomb, baby.<br><br><b>What sound or noise do you love?</b><br><br>

I flirt with the idea of going into law, but I'm not convinced that the payoff is worth the effort.

<b>When you were a kid what did you want to be as a grown up?</b><br><br>
From the time I was 5 until about 11, I wanted to be a grade school teacher. Then when I was 12, I discovered law and wanted to be a lawyer up until I was about 16. Then I wanted to teach high school math and went to U of O for their teaching program... which got canceled my freshman year there. D'oh.<br><br><br><br><b>You've been given $100,000 start up capital for a new business. What sort of business will it be?</b><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:"> hmmm....<br><br><br><br><b>Umbrella or raincoat?</b><br><br>
Umbrella! I've discovered those wind-friendly ones that have two layers of material on them - this one is mine: <a href="http://www.rainshop.com/productdetail.php?proj_id=65&fld_id=15&ptype=r" target="_blank">http://www.rainshop.com/productdetai..._id=15&ptype=r</a><br><br><br><br>
They're pretty cool... We have three of them from the same company - one for me, one for remi, and one we keep in the car just in case. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br><b>Is your desk messy or neat?</b><br><br>
Usually toward the neater side... at work, it's messy during the day then I tidy it up before I go home so that there isn't any paper on my desk (or maybe just my notepad). I can't stand clutter. GRRR!<br><br><br><br><b>What is your favorite Rogue beer?<br><br></b><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>

Santa's Private Reserve is one of my favorites as well, but Juniper's probably my favorite beer of all beers... well... at least in the top 3.

<b>what's your favorite kind of milk or "milk"?</b><br><br>
neither. In cereal, I really don't care, and I can't really drink milk straight. It is just unappealing to me. I prefer cow milk in my coffee, though. Soy in my coffee just tastes funny (if it doesn't curdle and ruin the coffee all together).<br><br><br><br><b>best kind of apple?<br><br></b>Local, first of all. NW apples are teh yum. I really like Fuji and Braeburn and Jonagold, though Pink Lady are also extremely good.<br><br><br><br>
I like the ones that are a combo of green & light red/pink and are super crispy and a bit sour.<br><br><br><br>
Man, it's making me hungry just thinking about it! I absolutely love apples.

YES. They're such a pain in the ass to eat, though. I love them in salads.<br><br><br><br><b>2. have you ever been to NJ?</b><br><br>
Sure have. I did a sales presentation a few years ago to a company in Newark.

I bite my nails, especially when I'm stressed. My nails have been stubs since I started this new job (in feb.) I know it's really gross and is unprofessional, but I really don't care to stop, either. It calms me down. Weird, I know. Guess it's my adult version of sucking my thumb.

<b>1. Do you enjoy playing Oregon Trail?</b><br><br>
lol! I haven't played in years. When I was in grade school, once you hit 4th grade you got "computer priveleges" and could use the Apple IIc's in the library.

Do you have tattoos or piercings? Do you have to cover them up for work?

<b>Do you have tattoos or piercings?</b><br><br>
I have two tattoos and 10 piercings. The tats get covered anyway, as they're on my back (one on my right shoulder, another on my left hip). The piercings... I wear a clear plastic spacer in my nose so that it's barely noticable. I keep my rook in all the time and I wear all but two of my earrings. (I have five in a row on my right lobe (then two on the top of my ear) and I don't wear earrings in the top two holes in the lobe part)<br><br><br><br>
Weird that this question came up. I had a dream last night that I was putting earrings in the last two holes in my earlobe as i've been thinking about going to get earrings to do that. I lost the studs I used to wear there.<br><br><br><br><b>Do you have to cover them up for work?<br><br></b>No, but if I get promoted I will probably have to be more conservative. Er, if I WANT to get promoted, I will probably have to be more conservative. I am not sure that someone with 10 earrings and a nose piercing would ever get to officer level.
