In Which I Want To Know

If you were to ask The Boss if there was one personality trait of mine that she didn't like, I'd put some money down on the possibility that she'd mention my penchant for routine and consistency. For someone who likes to mix things up for the sake of change, she doesn't always understand why I wish to keep things the same. We're not talking about major things here, just trivial stuff. Like how I drive the same way to and from work instead of taking a slightly different route every now and then, or that I eat the same thing for lunch for weeks upon end. What can I say? I'm big on tradition, and if I find something that works for me, I'm going to stick to it.

The same thing applies to my blog. There are certain traditions I have developed over the years, and I intend to stick to them. Take the way that I title my posts, for example. It started out as just something that I did to fill in the title field (which is often the hardest part, for me, in writing posts), and over time has developed into a trademark of sorts. There are other things I've done routinely here, of course, but the one I am going to continue again today is something I've done right around this same time in August two years running (first in 2008, and again in 2009). And so, as I've done before, I'm opening myself up to your questions. 

Do you have a burning question that you've been meaning to ask, but haven't? Is there something about me that you want to know that I have yet to mention here? Even if you're worried that it's been asked before, ask  it anyways. Unless you ask me if I have a secret crush on Sarah Jessica Parker*, there is no stupid question. 

You have until Sunday night to leave your question(s) in the comments here. The answers will go up on Monday.

Have a good weekend, everyone.

* For the record, the answer to this question is a strong, vehement, wholehearted, and resounding NO.

Purely a selfish question based in envy and/or jealousy... How'd you get your readership so high? I keep a blog and feel pretty lucky to have 13 people drop by on a daily basis. It's kind of pathetic...

Structure and consistency good. Change bad. I tend to be the same way.

I second the question above your readership, but more than that: for those of us that are relatively new followers, how did you get your blog name? What puts the "Badass" and "Geek" into the Badass Geek?

-->If you were on Death Row and had to select your final meal, what would it be?

-->What's one thing you own that you know you should throw out but can't seem to do it?

-->Why do men have nipples?

-->Do you think blogs are dying out due (like newsgroups) to the instant gratification of twitter?

That's all I have for a Friday.

Well I have a couple things and a comment.

Comment: If SJP was good enough for Bruce Willis to do in the movies...

A) What is the most time honored "tradition" you have at home that drives your wife crazy?

B) What inspired you to start your blog and keep it going?

If you have posted about either of these before, I missed them.

About changes: Oh I am the same way. If I like something and I am okay with it, I never feel the need to change it around. It’s like the people that paint their house a new color scheme every other year. If the color looks good I don’t see the point in “switching things up.”

As for the questions: I love asking them, so here I go.

1.What is your biggest pet peeve?

2.When you were younger, what did you want to be when you grew up?

3.Describe yourself in one word. (Well, it is kind of a question…)

4.What would you do for a Klondike Bar?

Wow --What do I want to know about the Badass Geek..( I am new in Dodge City, so if these have been asked/answered in the past..Well, you know where the delete button is on my comment
1- Rolling Stone has offered you a spread to interview anyone(alive of course) on the planet. Who would you interview and why?
2-What is the funniest joke you have ever heard?
3-You get the chance to play "air" instrument with any band. Who would you play with?

4-WWJD with the Badass Geek in heaven(ie: job)

Thank you and please pick me, I'm begging here, you can't see me but I actually typed this while in a prayer position, crucifix between my teeth, left foot on a bible and humming "Kumbaya my Lord".

How are things going with your health these days? Allergies and brain matter, and what not.

I'm still reading your blog, but mostly from work and for some reason the computer at work will not let me post a comment on your page - so I haven't stopped reading just kind of can't post as often.

just a simple two part question:

if you could change one thing about yourself what would it be and why?

I'm new here, so answer me this ...

What incentive do you have for me to come back keep reading?
