1. Talk about the first time you watched your favorite movie.

I don’t have a solitary favorite movie, and most of them I first saw back when I was in elementary school; basically, I can talk about the earliest time I watched one of my favorite movies.

It was New Year’s Eve and I was (I think) five years old, and we were watching Apollo 13 in the course of trying to stay awake all the way until midnight and the new year. I don’t think I made it to 12 o’clock, but I did finish the movie. We were in the basement, and I think we had popcorn, and I think I was the last of my siblings to fall asleep. There’s nothing really special about this memory except that I have it, and I don’t have as many memories from back then as I’d like.

15. Talk about the time you were most content in life.

I’m not even sure, but maybe my freshman year of college? It was a novel experience, and I was fresh out of high school. It was my first brush with living “independently” (I mean, in a dorm paid for by my parents, but at least it was in a different city), and the academics were so much less intense than they’d been in high school. I had the barest minimum of a social life, which gave me plenty of time to discover the joys of binge-watching Joss Whedon’s shows. 

I lost thirty pounds that year, between walking four miles a day to get to and from my classes and having a meal plan that allowed me to not keep snacks in my dorm. 

And my school won the national championship that year in football, so there was a lot of school spirit to go around.

It was nice.

22. Talk about your worst fear.

Alzheimer’s. I don’t really talk about it, though; if I’m listening to a discussion about it, I inevitably begin planning how I’d kill myself before the dementia became debilitating.

I just found a job listing for a photogrammetrist that requires:

  • a master’s or doctorate in a relevant field;
  • 10-15 years relevant experience;
  • a TS/SCI security clearance.

I’m not certain if that’s an unreasonable slate of expectations; it might be, but surely there are at least a few people who fit that bill.

What made this laughable is that they want to hire this person part-time.

One of my favorite parts of watching Jeopardy! is when a contestant gives a wrong answer and the judges accept it.

But you know better, and the vindication is sweet when Trebek stops play to announce that there’s a change in score.

Yeh, but I was sort of hoping that being a guy on a dating site meant that I’d be ignored (at least until I took deliberate further action) due to the male overpopulation. That makes sense, right?
