25 Random Questions: Featuring SaneN85

#nipslip #tittytuesday
A little while back on SingleBlackMale.org, I started to notice that there was this girl who was greeting everybody who came to the site.  She would even encourage people to put up pictures and give them instructions too on how to update their gravatar.  Naturally, someone asked me, “Do you know this SaneN85 girl?”  I ain’t know what they were talking about.  Then they said, “The one that’s always telling people to put a picture in their comments.”  And I responded, “OH YEAH!!!  Well you know, you always got to have a lightskin shorty by the door.”  And for a long time, until she decided to take LWOP, (without even asking permission), recently that was Sane.  She made sure to check you off the list and make sure that you knew that you were welcome at SingleBlackMale.  Anyway time moved on, she’s a really fabulous person.  So this is my new thing, I’m going to ask 25 random questions and someone will answer them.  Sane is first, follow her on Twitter here.  Oh it’s Sane, pronounced, [Shawn-Ay] not like [Insane].

Text in italics are the thoughts of Dr. J.

1.  Tell me about yourself.

Ummm, I really hate this question. As cliché as it is, I’m a constant contradiction. I’m a social butterfly and a misfit, I both love and can’t stand people at the same time. I’m a tomboy, survivor, and goof ball with a love of comics, movies, television, books, and softball. I’m spontaneous, forgiving, a compulsive planner, loyal to a fault, willing to try almost anything once, feisty and laid back. I’m also stubborn, emotional and unemotional, hyperactive and lazy, compassionate and disconnected. I literally could go on for days, which is why I hate this question.

2.  What’s your favorite movie?

This one is almost as hard as the first one. (That's what she said...)  I started to write and ended up with a list of like 15 movies and I can’t choose between them, so I’m just going to give you a list in no particular order here. Do with it what you wish. (That's also what she said...) 
  • Boondock Saints
  • Dazed and Confused
  • Super Troopers
  • Coming to America
  • Snatch
  • Gran Torino
  • Fight Club
  • Kill Bill Vol. 1
  • American History X
  • Sin City
  • Finding Nemo (well, all Pixar movies that aren’t Cars)
  • Amelie
  • Princess Bride
  • Clerks
  • Hangover
  • Guilty pleasure movies: The Pest and Speed
Okay, I’m not 100% happy with this list (I could make it top 20-50 even), .

3.  As a child, what was your favorite thing to do during recess?

Tetherball. Duh.  (Mine too, didn't even know everybody had that at their school.)

4.  Have you ever second guessed yourself?  Tell me about it.

I am constantly second guessing myself; it’d be hard to tell you about every time. I tend to look at every single little option and possible outcomes, so unless there is a clear solution/option, I second guess the decision.

5.  Peanut Butter.  Chunky or Creamy?

Creamy, I prefer a smooth texture to my food.

6.  Middle of the night or Morning sex?

What is this, Sane’s Choice?  (I hate when people answer "or" questions with their own question or yes or no.  The asshole in me just says, "It's a binary question, didn't ask you all that.")

7.  When you hold hands with a guy do you lock fingers?

I’ve never put any thought into this, but I guess I lock fingers.

8.  Do you prefer to wear heels or sneakers?

Sneakers. Don’t let those women who say they prefer heels fool you, we all prefer sneakers. Heels may work better with an outfit, but they are never as comfortable as sneakers. Why do you think they take them off as often as they can?

9.  Will you watch baseball, and iron out a quickie during the seventh inning stretch?

Yes.  (You answered mad quick!)

10.  Do you ever feel like you want to move to get away from family, or are you a family person to the heart?

Yes to both. I don’t see how these are mutually exclusive.

11.  What’s the most uncomfortable thing you’ve ever had to tell a man?

Honestly? It’s always uncomfortable when I’m at that point in the relationship where I have to tell about my childhood. It makes people fidgety.

12.  Are you a dark or light liquor girl?

Dark. Drink of choice tends to be a little Captain.

13.  If you hadn’t voted for Obama, who would you have voted for?

Hilary. Do I really need to explain this?  (This is an asshole move because I could just fix it, but ... Hillary*.)

14.  What’s the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?

My nieces. I haven’t had the pleasure of becoming a parent yet, but if seeing my child for the first time is even half as amazing as seeing my nieces and nephew for the first time, I can’t wait. I didn’t know my heart could physically handle that much love. Runner up? The beaches in Hawaii.

15.  You’re tired after a long day but your man is horny.  The cooch or the smooch?

Nothing can really lift your mood more than sex, right? Besides, if he knows me well enough, then he knows those buttons to push that will get me in the mood regardless of how tired I am.  (Peep that it's an "or" question, and also do you know how much initiative and balls it takes for a man to push up for sex when his lady is tired after a long day?  That's some O.G. ish.)

16.  Best gift you’ve ever received? Given?

I’m trying to find something here that doesn’t fall into the “most expensive gift I’ve given” category… something that is personal. The fact is, I don’t really give gifts with a lot of emotional weight behind them. I’ll buy video games, mp3s, computers, and other “toys for adults” (not that, you pervs) gifts. When it comes to women friends or my sisters, I’ll do gift certificates to spas or favorite store, tickets to events, and other things like that. I'll also often give money that I know they need but are too prideful to ask for or unable to pay back in the future. Actually, with my sisters it's frequently me letting them pass on paying me back money they've owed me for far too long. Nothing stands out. I’ll tailor the gift to the person, but like I said nothing emotional. *shrugs*

Best gift I’ve gotten? When I was 17, I was in the mall with my mother and she randomly stopped and bought me a ring with my birth stone on it. I can’t really explain the multitude of reasons why, but I’d never really gotten a gift from her that wasn’t something like socks on Christmas or something similar. It was also the first (and last) time that I’d gotten anything from her that wasn’t also given to at least two of my siblings. It was just for me, and just for being awesome. Runner up: my engagement ring in the shape of a butterfly to remind me of my mother. 

17.  Hair pulled or ass smacked?

Again, why do I have to choose?  (I won't say nothing about it again...)

18.  What’s the nastiest thing you’ve ever done in bed?

I’m having a hard time with this one. Short of involving non-sexual bodily fluids, nothing really seems “nasty” to me. *shrugs* I guess the most abnormal thing I’ve done (and normality is subjective) is to have sex in front a friend who was playing guitar at the time. I was crazy drunk though.  (Voyeurism numbers are up.)

19.  Big, small or not at all wedding?

I’ve already done a small wedding and aside from one or two people I really missed having there, it was a great day. I prefer small, and more importantly… affordable.

20.  How do you feel about Kobe Bryant?

I don’t. If I don’t give him too much thought, I won’t have to dislike him.

21. If I paid you, would you strip in my living room for a living?

No. That would get old and boring. Besides, the only person I’d strip for is my S/O, and there would be no money involved.  (Remember how people used to play that game in elementary school that would always trick women into saying they'd do something sexual for free.  I can tell that Sane wasn't that good with those riddles.  Take the money!)

22. In high school, where did you see yourself in life?

Somewhere else, that’s for sure. I don’t know… I expected to be in a happy, stable relationship and with a great foundation built on my chosen career (at the time, it was Law).

23.  What’s your favorite thing to do for your man?

I honestly don’t have a favorite thing to do for a man. I mean, making him happy, giving him great surprises, keeping him well-satisfied in bed. All of the actions to do this varies from man to man, so it’s hard to be more specific.

24.  Where do you see yourself in five years?

Somewhere else, that’s for sure. I don’t know… I expect to be in a happy, stable relationship and with a great foundation built on my chosen career (Information Technology). I also plan to be out of the state of Washington… maybe. I’m not sure I can be that far away from my nieces.

25.  What are your words to live by?

There are a billion* quotes that I find extremely helpful/useful to live by, but the one I try to live by the most is to always leave a place/person better of (or happier) than when you found/met them. I may not always be able to fix the problems of those around me or clean up every park, but I can strive to make them better even if it’s just a compliment to make them smile. At the very least, I will do everything I can to not have a negative impact on anyone or anything.

I am personally offended by everything in italics. Also, what happened to not giving me sh*t about a misspelling? That lasted about 5 minutes :P

I like the 25 ?'s idea...another creative and fun read--I look forward to the next one!
