No, I'm not dead/Reader Poll #4 (I think)

I'm sorry!!!! Please don't hate me, and I hope that there are still a few of you out there reading. New job (which I love, by the way) has cut down on blogging time, and since I got back from Europe I just haven't been able to catch up with my life. Does that make sense? I've been feeling a beat behind in everything, but in a good way. Yeah, it's a bit annoying that my apartment is always messy and that I can't find time to return emails, but you know what? Right now I'm happier than I have been in a long time. So I'll take a bit of apartment clutter - it's worth it.

In the meantime, everybody play!

1. When was the last time you saw the lights come up in a bar?

2. What are you reading right now?

3. Paper or plastic?

4. Got any vacation plans for the near future?

5. Do you want children?

6. What is your natural hair color?

7. Would you ever have plastic surgery? If so, what would you have done?

8. What's your drink?

9. How's work going?

10. Ask me something!

Leah - I could never do anything fire-related, like walking on coals or something like that.

Mike - who the F has time to think of shit like that?

Troy - I don't know if it matches my personality, but I do love pugs...

Eggnoger - I'm in ad sales for a really cool community-focused website.

Chris - whatever makes you think I've taken a lover?? ;)
