WALLET: Tattered black old wal-mart special. I used to use a really cool hand-me-down from my great-grandpa, but I had to retire it for fear that it might disintegrate on me.

HAIR-BRUSH: No need, due to my Moby-esque do.

TOOTHBRUSH: Some kind of generic Oral-B knockoff. blue and white and getting too old. It gets the job done, though.

JEWELRY WORN DAILY: None. I've never been a jewelry wearer, for whatever reasons.

PILLOW COVER: A blue/green plaid thingy.

COFFEE CUP: Not a coffee drinker. My mug for other purposes is an old Chicago Cubs one.

SUNGLASSES: I haven't had any in forever, since I never wear my contacts anymore. The coolest pair I ever had cost 3 bucks at a gas station. They were shiney and silver and bugeyed, and fit my head just right, which is a rarity. I lost them when I left them in the grass at a pickup soccer game my senior year of high school.

SHOES: A mix of old indoor soccer kicks and chuck taylors.

NAILPOLISH: nope. occasionally in high school, when I was always around bored chicks who liked to paint other people's nails.

KEYCHAIN: A mini soccer ball, plus a free promo keychain from a cubs game. 11 keys. 2 for the blazer. 1 for the bike lock, 2 for the house front door(bolt and knob), 1 for my room door. 1 for my dad's business. 1 for my house back in Mattoon. 2 lab and building keys from my old job that I need to return sometime soon here. 1 to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. Ok, so ten keys, really.

COMPUTER: A heavily upgraded and abused old Dell optiplex Gs+ 200. With lots of neat stickers and graffiti on it.

FAVORITE TOP: I like some of my goofy t-shirts more than others. My Tick shirt, and my Atom and His Package "Go Metric Now" shirt are favorites. I also have a worn corduroy jacket that I bought for a quarter and wear incessantly, because it's really badass.

FAVORITE PANTS: I wear the crap out of a pair of grey Lee Dungarees, because they're spacious and comfortable and well broken-in.

SHAMPOO/CONDITIONER: Usually that cheapo Suave stuff. Kills two birds w/ one stone and all that.

PERFUME: I'm starting to think this survey was directed more at those of the female persuasion, but when have I ever been one to respect gender classifications? Anyway, no cologne, which I guess would be the male equivalent or something. And perfume on most women sucks too, because they always use too much. Subtlety, people.

CDS IN THE STEREO: before: Marvin Gaye - Greatest Hits now: Pearl Jam - Vs on deck: Fugazi - The Argument

CAR: A '90 chevy blazer, grey, rusting around the edges, 124k+ miles. Still truckin after 7 years together.

TELEVISION: In storage somewhere at home. I've got a tuner card in the dell that I use now and again, mainly for news, simpsons, and baseball.

STEREO: A nice Pioneer receiver and 100 disk changer, but w/ crappy speakers salvaged from various shelftop systems. I sort of ran out of money midway through the building of my system. But, it works fine for now, when I only have a relatively small room to deal with anyway.

TELEPHONE: I don't even have one in my room right now. The phone and I are on uneasy terms. When necessary, I use one of the cordless phones lying around the house.

CELLPHONE: Nope. I might succumb someday, once they come up with a good cellphone/pda combo, but I certainly won't leave the bastard turned on all of the time.

PRINTER: Compaq inkjet knockoff. Doesn't work very well, but, well, I never print anything unless I have to to turn it in anyway.

DESK: Ancient and massive particle-board computer desk. It holds the pc, monitor, stereo, and lots of other crap with slightly-sagging aplomb.

Apparently...

I AM 35% GEEK.



I probably work in computers, or a history
department at a college. I never really
fit in with the "normal" crowd. But I have
friends, and this is a good thing.

Also...
I AM 32% PUNK.



Well, I may know what punk is, but... Okay
maybe some people think I am punk, but is
that enough? Nope.

Name: jared dean dunn

Were you named after anyone? jared is straight out of a name book, to my knowledge. the dean middle name is a dunn family tradition though, which is kind of neat. especially if you're my uncle, james dean dunn

Do you wish on stars? no. I stare at them a heckuva lot though.

When did you last cry? it's been awhile. I've been feeling pretty numb and detached lately.

If you were making a movie about yourself, who would play you? jason lee. actually, i have no idea, but jason lee is pretty cool, so why not?

Do you like your handwriting? Not particularly. It's pretty damned illegible. I hardly ever write out anything anymore, if the opportunity to type presents itself instead. That's perhaps a little sad, as there is nothing quite like the handwritten word, but for me it's just not very practical to do so very often.

Who are you jealous envious of? people who are strong, and have their shit together. who have confidence and direction and purpose. or are at least good at giving the appearence that they do.

What is your favorite lunchmeat? ham. yeah, pigs are filthy animals, but they're also tasty animals :]

Any bad habits? fingernail chewing, joint cracking, coke(the beverage, obviously)

If you were another person, would you be friends WITH you? sure, if i could get me to talk to me, which might be kinda hard as introverted as I tend to be much of the time.

Are you a daredevil? A cautious one, paradoxically. I've done some reckless things(jumped off of a couple of bridges, driven my car some places and at speeds I shouldn't have, pulled a few crazy stunts involving small explosives, toilet paper, fire, and so on), but always rationally and with safety in the back of my mind.

Have you ever told a secret you swore you wouldn't tell? I don't think so.

Have you ever stolen anything? Yeah, though mostly useless stuff that nobody seemed to want anyway. At least, that's how I've justified it to myself on the rare occasion that I have.

Do looks matter? Of course, on some level. And I don't think that's anything but normal and human, as long as they don't trump other considerations.

Do you pray? No. Sometimes I wish I could. Instead, I just end up talking to myself, or the wall, or the sky, or if I'm lucky, my friends.

Have you ever met anyone famous? Hmm... not many. Carl Sagan and Edward Teller at IMSA, but I was too young to really appreciate it at the time. My old next door neighbor might be pitching for the Giants within a year or two.

Do you think there's a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow? what rainbow?

Are you trendy? I certainly don't try to be. I've started trends, unwittingly followed them, and everything in-between. I like to think I'm my own trend, though how true this actually is, I'm not sure.

Are you passive or aggressive? Neither really. More passive than aggressive though, if I must choose.

Who is your idol? I don't really idolize anyone. As far as people who are examples for how I'd like to live and what I'd like to do with my life, I'd say Carl Sagan, Ian Mackaye, JS Mill, Bertrand Russell. People who do/did what they love, and do it with integrity and purpose and independnce and so on. Though it's corny and cliched to say so, I also really look up to a lot of my friends, my parents, grandparents, and so on, but not really in an idolatric manner either.

Who is your second family? My hometown friends, and the internet.

Do you trust others easily? Not really, at least on any kind of an emotional level, beyond basic trust that they won't hurt or screw me. I don't even trust myself all of the time.

What was your favorite toy as a child? books, transformers, dirt

What class in school did you think was totally useless? health was pretty damned useless for me too. Although I'm left with the indelible(and quite inaccurate) metaphor of the scrotum as "the body's thermostat." PE was awfully useless too. And chemII in high school consisted of lighting things on fire, playing paper football, and occasionally halheartedly reviewing stuff from chemI, since our teacher was totally incompetent. And I wonder why I struggled in chem here as a freshman.

Do you like sappy love songs? if they're well-written. It's a fine line, though. I like happy-sad songs more than simply sappy ones, most of the time.

Have you ever been on radio or television? Tv a few times. I've been on the local news a couple times relating to campus issues, and was on tv in the state spelling bee in grade school I think. I've accidentally made sportscenter at a couple of baseball games too.

Do you have a journal? only on my computer. see above about my handwriting

Have you ever intentionally hurt someone? No. I've tried a couple of times, when I was young and dumb. Luckily, I failed, and with luck I'll never be tempted enough to try again.

Do you like sarcasm? Does the Pope shit in the woods?

Do you feel understood most of the time? No. I think it's a combo of me being hard to understand(heck, I don't even understand myself much of the time), and being bad at expressing myself to others and making them undertand me.

Would you rather have a sore throat or an upset stomach? Throat. An upset stomach just tends to make the rest of me be not worth a shit either.

Have you thought seriously about committing suicide? In an abstract, Camus-like way. I could never go through with it. As much as I complain about it, I love life deep down.

What is your nickname? I don't have one, at the moment

Could you be a vegetarian? I love it as an ethical choice, but it's one that I'm just not really capable of, at least right now. I have a hard enough time keeping weight on even with meat in my diet.

Would you ever bungee jump? sure. I'd like to someday. It's on the list, anyway.

Do you untie your shoes every time you take them off? mine are rarely even tied at all, so probably not.

What are you worried about right now? molecular biology. smallpox. getting a job. life. death. the usual.

Do you ever wear overalls? I don't have any. I'm not averse to them, just not fond enough to go out and buy some.

Do you think you are strong? Sometimes. Far too rarely though. More often I think I'm too weak and lazy to really accomplish what I want to with my life. I hope that that changes, but I don't see how to make it happen just yet.


What's your favorite Popsicle? fudgicles!
