Meme Time: Have you ever?

I’ve not done a meme in awhile so let’s do one for the hell of it. This is one of those “Have you ever…?” memes stolen from Bouder Dude:

1. Taken a picture completely naked? Of myself? No. Of some other people? Yes.
2. Danced in front of a mirror naked? Yes, when I was younger and more attractive.
3. Told a lie? I’d be lieing if I said no.
4. Had feelings for someone who didn’t have them back? Absolutely. For the longest time in my youth that was pretty much the norm for me.
5. Been arrested? Not a once. I’m kind of boring that way.
6. Seen someone die? Yes. It wasn’t anybody I knew, but it was still deeply affecting at the time.
7. Kissed a picture? Yep, though I can’t recall who it was anymore.
8. Slept in until 5pm? As BD points out, this one is kinda vague. If you mean going to bed at my normal time and sleeping until 5PM then, no, I’ve never done that. I have worked nights, though, that meant me sleeping during the day until 5PM and I’ve had all-night adventures that resulted in my sleeping until 5PM. So, maybe?
9. Had sex at work (on the clock)? I’ve never had sex at work nor while I was on the clock. Though I have had sex in places of work (but not my own work place).
10. Fallen asleep at work/school? It’s rare, but it has happened. School, mostly though there’s been one or two times I’ve dozed off at work.
11. Held a snake? Countless times. Garter snakes mostly.
12. Ran a red light? On the odd occasion, but never intentionally.
13. Been suspended from school? I got suspended a couple of times in my school years. Usually after getting into a fistfight I didn’t want to be in to begin with.
14. Pole danced? Never had a pole to dance with/on, so no.
15. Been fired from a job? Yep. Was fired from a Kmarts once when I was 17 because I told a manager that I didn’t know much about the TV sets they sold. That was the only real “firing” I’ve ever experienced, though I’ve had plenty of contracts come to an end and was layed off for awhile not too long ago.
16. Sang karaoke? Officially? No. But if you count singing along in the car without having touched a drop of booze, then it’d be all the time.
17. Done something you told yourself you wouldn’t? Who hasn’t? That’s just part of being human.
18. Laughed until something you were drinking came out your nose? More times than I care to recall. Ow.
19. Laughed until you peed? I’ve never pissed myself from laughing, though I have had to rush to the bathroom after a good laughing fit.
20. Caught a snowflake on your tongue? Yep. Another common childhood activity in the winter for me. Probably got all manner of polution into my system from doing that.
21. Kissed in the rain? Yeah, but it never struck me as a particularly romantic/sexy thing to do.
22. Had sex in the rain? No, but I have had sex outside before.
23. Sang in the shower? I might have, but I don’t think so. I generally sing along with music that’s already playing and I don’t have a shower radio.
24. Gave your private parts a nickname? Officially, no, but I will refer to them using various common cliches (e.g. Big Jim and the twins) as a joke.
25. Ever gone to school/work without underwear? Yes, but only when I had no other choice. I’m not much for “going commando” as it’s just not comfortable.
26. Sat on a roof top? Quite a bit in my youth, not so much now that I’m older and fatter.
27. Played chicken? Yes, but not with cars or anything like that.
28. Been pushed into a pool with all your clothes on? Pushed? Hell, I jumped. Though I was once chased into a pool by a dog.
29. Broken a bone? Yep, technically I’ve broken my neck, but it’s not as serious as it sounds. I’m pretty sure I’ve broken a toe or two over the years from stubbing them into furniture. Never broken an arm or leg, though.
30. Flashed someone? Yeah, but only cause she asked me to.
31. Mooned someone? Nope.
32. Shaved your head? Not until I got into my 30s and now it’s common practice for me.
33. Slept naked? Yes, starting in my late teen-aged years.
34. Blacked out from drinking? Nope. I’m not a big drinker. Only been drunk a few times in my life and only got sick from it once.
35. Played a prank on someone? Yep. I used to be quite the prankster. Not so much these days.
36. Had a gym membership? No, though I have been meaning to.
37. Felt like killing someone? There’s been a few people over the years that I felt like killing, but I’d never come close to acutally acting on such thoughts.
38. Cried over someone you were in love with? Again, who hasn’t?
39. Had Mexican jumping beans for pets? I think I got some as a gift once even though I’d never asked for them. I remember being disappointed in that the ones I got must have been faulty as they never so much as shook let alone jump.
40. Been in a band? Nope. Though I used to play violin in the school orchestra.
41. Shot a gun? Yep. My grandfather taught me to shoot.
42. Shot a bow and arrow? Yes. Or at least I tried to. Wasn’t ever very good at it.
43. Played strip poker? Yes. Back when I was young and had a few women around who thought I was cute enough (and fit enough) to want to see naked.
44. Donated Blood? Many times, though it’s been awhile. I probably should make a point of it again soon.
45. Ever jump out of an airplane? Never felt the need to.
46. Been to more than 10 countries? Nope. The only other country I’ve ever been to is Canada and, growing up in the Detroit area, that doesn’t really count in my mind. I’ve wanted to visit the U.K., Japan, and several other places, but have never had the time/money to do it.

    Taken a picture completely naked? Yes, and frequently at that.
    Danced in front of a mirror naked? No.
    Told a lie? Sometimes on a daily basis, although I’ve really been trying to curb this trait in recent years. Honesty may be a lonely word, but it’s one of the most valuable character traits a person can possess.
    Had feelings for someone who didn’t have them back? Oh, yeah. downer
    Been arrested? Yes—when I was seventeen I was at a restaurant with a group of eight friends, and we were a little, um, rowdy, to say the very least. We were all released that very evening, however.

    Slept in until 5pm? I can top that: the latest I’ve ever slept in was 8pm.

    2. Danced in front of a mirror naked? Yes.
    3. Told a lie? This answer is the only lie I’ve ever told in my life.
    4. Had feelings for someone who didn’t have them back?  Of course- who hasn’t?
    5. Been arrested?  Yep.  Spent twelve days in jail for blocking a public thoroughfare.  Had a great time.
    6. Seen someone die? No.
    7. Kissed a picture? Not that I recall.
    8. Slept in until 5pm? Slept through 5pm, certainly; slept “in” until 5, don’t think so.  I’ve always been a morning person.
    9. Had sex at work (on the clock)? Yes, although since I was (and am) self-employed, the clock didn’t mind, nor did we…
    10. Fallen asleep at work/school?  At school, a couple of times.  I did almost fall asleep driving a motorcycle once, after a long and arduous night with a girlfriend.
    11. Held a snake? Many times.  Like Les, mostly garter snakes, but also the occasional boa and python.  Very sensual, for me at least.
    12. Ran a red light? I’ll just paste Les here: “On the odd occasion, but never intentionally.”
    13. Been suspended from school? Nope.
    14. Pole danced? Nope.
    15. Been fired from a job? Not really “fired”, but when the Berkeley Barb was on its way down, I was one of the early casualties.  Fat lot of good it did them, too.
    16. Sang karaoke? Nope.  I sing a lot in concerts, though.
    17. Done something you told yourself you wouldn’t? Never.  My word is law with me. LOL
    18. Laughed until something you were drinking came out your nose?  That’s one of those experiences that life still has in store for me.  I can hardly wait.
    19. Laughed until you peed? Yes, but only a little bit red face
    20. Caught a snowflake on your tongue? At least 37 times.
    21. Kissed in the rain? At least 38 times.
    22. Had sex in the rain? Does a light drizzle count?
    23. Sang in the shower? All the time.
    24. Gave your private parts a nickname? To rephrase Les: Officially, no, but I will refer to them using various common cliches (e.g. the one-eyed trouser snake) as a joke.
    25. Ever gone to school/work without underwear? That’s my underwear of choice.
    26. Sat on a roof top? Often.
    27. Played chicken? Not really, unless daring one another to shoot rubber bands at Amy while she was giving an oral report in ninth-grade English counts.
    28. Been pushed into a pool with all your clothes on?  Not so far.  I tend to avoid swimming pools nowadays anyway- chlorine hurts my eyes.
    29. Broken a bone? Only a couple of ribs so far.  A girlfriend of mine wanted to film me somersaulting down a hill, and I obliged with more enthusiasm than coordination.
    30. Flashed someone?  31. Mooned someone? Yes, both on the same occasion, as a kind of art work.  A girlfriend and I were walking on Ocean Beach in SF by the Cliff House, and decided to give the tourists something to look at.  What can I say?  Young and crazy.
    32. Shaved your head? Uh, do crew cuts count?
    33. Slept naked? Channeling Les again: “Yes, starting in my late teen-aged years.”
    34. Blacked out from drinking?  You’re on a run, Les: “Nope. I’m not a big drinker. Only been drunk a few times in my life and only got sick from it once.”  The one time I got sick, though, I was really sick, and that pretty much cured my incipient desire to become an alcoholic…
    35. Played a prank on someone? My brother and I played “pranks” on one another, culminating in stitches of laughter and wounds.
    36. Had a gym membership? Nope.  I get a lot of exercise in my work, and biking to work.  I could do with taking a yoga or martial arts class again, though.
    37. Felt like killing someone? Maybe not “killing”, but putting into suspended animation.  Permanently.
    38. Cried over someone you were in love with? Yep.
    39. Had Mexican jumping beans for pets? I had jumping beans as a kid a couple of times, but calling them “pets” is a bit much.
    40. Been in a band? Yep, several times: school bands, ragtime, Scottish…
    41. Shot a gun? Only a .22 rifle at summer camp.  We did have to make our own bullets, though.
    42. Shot a bow and arrow? Occasionally.  My brother-in-sin (my partner’s sister’s partner) is a serious archer, and he’s getting me interested again.
    43. Played strip poker? Yes.  Haven’t for a while, though.
    44. Donated Blood? No.  I have to admit I don’t like needles.  Poor excuse- I should do it.
    45. Ever jump out of an airplane? Not so far.  I got to fly one once for a bit.
    46. Been to more than 10 countries? Yes.  Hard to avoid, living in Europe.

  16. Zilch reminded me of the broken ribs.
    After a 10 year friendship she and I decided to try sex together.
    I had a broken rib but, as y’all know, sex is a pain-killer.
    She was about to orgasm – YES she screamed as she squeezed me.
    AHHH I cried as she did … and she didn’t.  wink

  17. About the sleeping naked thing.  I’ve gotten into the habit of sleeping in t-shirt/shorts in case I have to get out of bed for some emergency.  Or at least leaving the clothes laying right beside the bed.  Especially after a midnight fire drill in college that totally caught us off guard.  Hell of a time to START doing fire drills.  I was still awake and dressed, but one guy got caught in the shower (some guys just went to the showers in a towel) and ended up outside, dripping wet in 50 degree F weather.  After that, I made sure I wasn’t far from clothes at any time. 

    On bones breaking:  I think I must have thick bones.  Some stuff I’ve done I swear should’ve fractured the bones at least.  I have sprained both ankles and twisted my left knee(something popped), but no bones.  Thinking about it, I also think that whenever I’ve gone down doing anything, I usually roll with it, and not try to outright stop the fall. 

    Except this one time as a kid jumping the ditch.  We used the ditch/culvert edge as a steep 3 ft ramp – best damn ramp we ever had, it was essentially a micro half-pipe.  I caught some decent air, but wiped out.  Fortunately, I missed the concrete driveway by a few inches, but I lay there thinking my leg was broke, then got up after a few minutes and limped off.  Then and now I still think it should’ve broken my leg.

  18. Consig: 42. Shot a bow and arrow? Yes.  I don’t understand why people have these when there are guns.

    For the challenge, of course.

    Shelly: Topless on a Greek beach. Does that count?

    You score points for trying, but no, completely naked is a bit beyond topless.  On a Greek beach, chances are that this is the tiniest bit beyond topless

    Perhaps a tiny bit
    tongue laugh

  19. 1. Taken a picture completely naked? Yes – if taking a picture of someone else when we were both completely naked counts.  Have I ever been caught on film?  Other than maybe as an infant in a tub, no.
    2. Danced in front of a mirror naked? Yes.
    3. Told a lie? Never.  Oops.  At least once now.
    4. Had feelings for someone who didn’t have them back?  Constantly.
    5. Been arrested?  No – for which I credit honesty at the right moment.  I was pulled over once about a block from my house, and I was very clearly drunk.  The officer asked if I had been drinking, and I didn’t see any reason to lie.  I told him that I had, and that I was heading home.  He let me leave the car where it was if I promised to just walk home and not pick it up until the morning.  That’s about the closest I’ve ever come, other than the B&E that I committed when I was seven.
    6. Seen someone die? No.
    7. Kissed a picture? No.
    8. Slept in until 5pm? Yes.
    9. Had sex at work (on the clock)? No – wouldn’t sex workers have an unfair advantage here?
    10. Fallen asleep at work/school?  No.
    11. Held a snake? Yes, harmless ones.
    12. Ran a red light? Yes.  Sometimes by accident, though a couple times late at night when there was nobody crossing and I was impatient.
    13. Been suspended from school? No.
    14. Pole danced? No.
    15. Been fired from a job? No.
    16. Sang karaoke? No – just barely escaped once though.
    17. Done something you told yourself you wouldn’t? Yes.
    18. Laughed until something you were drinking came out your nose? Oh yeah.  Best way to enjoy a glass of milk!
    19. Laughed until you peed? No.
    20. Caught a snowflake on your tongue? Yes.
    21. Kissed in the rain? Yes.
    22. Had sex in the rain? Unfortunately, no.
    23. Sang in the shower? Sure.
    24. Gave your private parts a nickname? No, though my wife has.  Once, while she was hanging out down there (apparently while trying to determine just how much pressure it could withstand), she flashed on Monty Python’s Life Of Brian, and started saying, “Give us Bawabas, give us Bawabas”, and she’s called it that ever since.
    25. Ever gone to school/work without underwear? Commando?  No.
    26. Sat on a roof top? Sure – I’m with LuckyJohn19 on this one – rooftops are great places to smoke dope.
    27. Played chicken? No.
    28. Been pushed into a pool with all your clothes on?  Yes, it was fun. 
    29. Broken a bone? Yes – my left arm when I was a kid the monday after summer vacation started.  I was in a cast all summer and couldn’t get in a pool.  Worst. Summer. Evar.
    30. Flashed someone? Not really.  I allowed a prospective girlfriend to take my clothes off when we were making out while she kept hers on, though I don’t think that’s technically flashing.  She seemed to like that, since we dated for a while afterwards.
    31. Mooned someone? Yes.
    32. Shaved your head? No.  Crew cut to the point at which you sunburn your scalp – yes.
    33. Slept naked? Yes.
    34. Blacked out from drinking?  Yes.
    35. Played a prank on someone? Yes.
    36. Had a gym membership? Yes.
    37. Felt like killing someone? Not really, no. 
    38. Cried over someone you were in love with? Yes.
    39. Had Mexican jumping beans for pets? No, “Here Frijole!”
    40. Been in a band? Yes.
    41. Shot a gun? Yes, many times.  I’ve always been a good shot.
    42. Shot a bow and arrow? Yes, though not as much as I’ve shot guns.  Not as good at it either.
    43. Played strip poker? Yes. 
    44. Donated Blood? Yes.
    45. Ever jump out of an airplane? No.
    46. Been to more than 10 countries? Unfortunately, no – just 4.  US, Mexico, Canada, and then Portugal on a school trip.  I think we had a layover in Heathrow for that, but I don’t think that being in an aiport in another country really counts.

    Shelly: Perhaps a tiny bit

    mmm … barely there beachwear smile

  20. Les informs me:  9. Had sex at work (on the clock)? I’ve never had sex at work nor while I was on the clock. Though I have had sex in places of work (but not my own work place).

    Thanks LOADS for the mental image *that* one conjures up, Les . . . employees doin’ stuff all over MY desk. 

    <*shudder!*>

      Starting Monday, I’m Windexing EVERY SQUARE INCH of my desk EACH MORNING. 

    Cuz you just never know, do you?

    (Les, could you delete the post above this? I don’t know why, but more than half the post just didn’t make it.)

  21. BT, done. And don’t sweat the image too much as we never did it on anyone’s desk. It was actually in the men’s room.

  22. Les sez: BT, done. And don’t sweat the image too much as we never did it on anyone’s desk. It was actually in the men’s room.

    Thanks much, Les . . . although now that I read the post, I realize it also cut off my closing sentence, which is, oddly enough, quite appropos for your explanation regarding your men’s room debauchery, to wit:

    ewww!  just . . . EWWW!!

    grin

  23. I said: 16. Sang karaoke? No – just barely escaped once though.

    Another one bites the dust!  In part spurred buy this thread, and maybe in part by a few beets, I did a horrible Karaoke version of “Why Don’t We Get Drunk and Screw”  last night at the end of the National Shrimp Fest down in Gulf Shors, AL.  I think it was more fun for me than the audience!

  24. I think it was more fun for me than the audience!

    Michael- I saw a skit years ago where a folk singer comes to the mike with his guitar and says “I’ve suffered for my music.  Now it’s your turn!”

  25. Me: 11. Held a snake? A live one? I think so. A dead one? Yes.

    Damn – I thought it was ‘touch’ a snake.
    I went to the Orange Field Days today and there was a snake handling exhibition.
    The bloke had venomous snakes as well as Bertha, a Diamond Python.
    I asked to stroke it so I could re-answer this question. I coulda held it if I’d wanted.
    Oh well. Next year.  smile

  26. Zilch: Michael- I saw a skit years ago where a folk singer comes to the mike with his guitar and says “I’ve suffered for my music.  Now it’s your turn!”

    Funny!  I suppose it’s all in the expectations you set, “Hey folks, we’ve got a really crappy show for you tonight!”

    Les: You asked to touch some strange guy’s snake?

    LJ clearly asked to stroke it.  That should be #47 on the list: Have you ever requested permission to stroke someone’s snake?

    Then #48: Have you ever paid for snake stroking in advance with dinner, flowers, or a movie?

  27. Then #48: Have you ever paid for snake stroking in advance with dinner, flowers, or a movie?

    LOL

    No. Afterwards … I put my last 65 cents into his hat which he then put in a bag with another snake suggesting all his collections would be quite safe there.  wink
    The last snake he showed was the Fierce Snake AKA Inland Taipan from cental Oz. Apparently a bite from one of these injects enough venom to kill 100 people or, it’s 50 times more deadly than a cobra.
    We’ve got some killer shit in and around Oz with snakes, spiders, jellyfish and let’s not forget that bloody Stonefish.
    The media only seems to report tourists falling foul of our fauna.
    I’m still not sure if they’re the only ones that get got and we’re somehow immune or …
    Reminds me of the journalists’ code: Dog bites man is not news – man bites dog is news. smile

  28. Haven’t been around for a long, long time; Les probably doesn’t even remember me (as a token “reasonable” Christian).  Anyway,

    1. Taken a picture completely naked?
    Actually, yes.  Many, many years back, my wife snapped a picture of me buck naked reading the Sunday paper in bed… rear view.

    2. Danced in front of a mirror naked?
    Nope; don’t see the point.

    3. Told a lie?
    Yes.  Show me someone who hasn’t, and that person is a liar.

    4. Had feelings for someone who didn’t have them back?
    All the time.  Even after 22 years of marriage (although my expectations are more realistic and these “feelings” are more fantasy than real possibility.)

    5. Been arrested? Not a once. I’m kind of boring that way. (Sorry, but that fits me too.)

    6. Seen someone die?
    Someone?  No, but I had a dog put down last year. It about ripped my heart out.

    7. Kissed a picture?
    Nope.

    8. Slept in until 5pm?
    Yes.  Nothing vague about that in my case.

    9. Had sex at work (on the clock)? Since the Mrs. is the only partner I’ve had, I guess the answer is no.

    10. Fallen asleep at work/school?
    I famously fell asleep in a philosophy class while in college; whole class noticed, teacher noticed, I was snoring loudly.  I was awakened by the sound of sliding chairs at the end of class and wandered out, only to have my roomate tell me later on what happened.
    At work?  Why, yes, just happened today as a matter of fact.  I was in a dark area listening for directions from someone else on a headset, and I admit to dozing a bit in between tasks.

    11. Held a snake?
    Yeah.  No biggie.

    12. Ran a red light?
    Yeah.  I try not to make a habit of it.

    13. Been suspended from school?
    Nope.

    14. Pole danced?
    Well, I am of Polish descent, so I guess the answer is yes.  But not in the way the question intended I guess.

    15. Been fired from a job?
    I’ve been laid off.

    16. Sang karaoke?
    No.  I was urged to during a trip to Korea, but was terribly sick and could barely talk, so I declined.

    17. Done something you told yourself you wouldn’t?
    Dumb question.  Next?

    18. Laughed until something you were drinking came out your nose?
    Of course.

    19. Laughed until you peed?
    No; I think that’s more of a girl thing.

    20. Caught a snowflake on your tongue?
    Yes.
     
    21. Kissed in the rain?
    Yes.  Where I grew up and also where I went to college, it rained a lot.

    22. Had sex in the rain?
    No.

    23. Sang in the shower?
    Yes, but not well.

    24. Gave your private parts a nickname?
    No.

    25. Ever gone to school/work without underwear?
    Yeah.  I went through that phase.

    26. Sat on a roof top?
    Yes.

    28. Been pushed into a pool with all your clothes on? Pushed?
    I don’t think so.

    29. Broken a bone?
    Just my big toe.

    30. Flashed someone?
    Nope.

    31. Mooned someone?
    Yep.

    32. Shaved your head?
    Nope.

    33. Slept naked?
    Most nights, yeah.

    34. Blacked out from drinking?
    Almost.  More excitingly, I almost crossed a busy street stinkin’ drunk; someone pulled me back by my collar and probably saved my life.

    35. Played a prank on someone?
    Yes.  My little brother and I used to boobie trap big brother’s room when he was out drinking… bucket of water on the top of the door, that kind of thing.  grin

    36. Had a gym membership?
    No; took Tae Kwon Do for a while though.

    37. Felt like killing someone?
    Seriously?  No.

    38. Cried over someone you were in love with?
    Actually, I married my first love and have never had a broken heart.

    39. Had Mexican jumping beans for pets?
    Nope.

    40. Been in a band?
    Nope.

    41. Shot a gun?
    Yep. My uncle’s. Never owned one.

    42. Shot a bow and arrow?
    Yes. As an adult leader at a Boy Scout camp.

    43. Played strip poker?
    Nope.

    44. Donated Blood?
    Yes.  Should do it again soon.

    45. Ever jump out of an airplane?
    Only a parked one.  wink

    46. Been to more than 10 countries?  U.S., Canada, Mexico, Korea, UK, Germany…. nope.
