Yes, mostly every one else is doing it... I might as well also. This thread serves to divulge a quest for knowledge, opinion, or truth about me and my anything but normal life ...

 

So, ask away...

 

and experiance the random cynical, acerbic, sarcastic, wry, and sometimes humorous ramblings, answers, thoughts, ideas & observations of man trapped in a world he didn't make... :2T:

So why did you feel the need to go with everyone else and open a question thread?

 

What's your favorite color?

 

Do you ever wish you had saved your virginity for marraige?

 

What's the sexiest thing that's ever happened to you?

 

Do you like pickles? If so, why would you do that to yourself?

 

Thus starts the crazy stupid questions from Christy.

What prompted you to become a medic? that's a lotta EMS training right there.

 

I have to blame my so-called "Aunt" (close friend of the family's and 2 of my childhood friends that are like cousins to me, (her sons) who are all EMS personnel (2 medics/1 EMTI). I suppose it helped having been brought up by a firefighter as a dad although when he got promoted he rarely did any EMS stuff. I dunno, fell into I guess and then just stayed with it partly for the excitement and challenge. You know the "rush" especially during a trauma call- and partly, because of my extreme interest in medicine and the way the human body exists and reacts. I love the challenge and the pay is nothing to bat an eyelash at either. It also helps having vested significant time in to a certain degree to have already established a worthy and demanding career with promotional potential as well as experiance when I decide to change course later on in my career.

---------------------------

 

You planning on staying a street medic, or where would you like to take it?

 

I ultimately would love to return to grad school and obtain a degree in Forensic Pathology. I have spent alot of time understanding the body, how it reacts circumstancially under specific conditions and have an in depth understanding and working knowledge of both as well. For me to ultimately get into Forensics recreation and Pathology in the criminal field would be my dream.

------------------------------

 

What's been your most exciting call (if you dont mind my askin), and which are your least favorite?

 

Somewhat easy to remember both.

 

- Most exciting was the assist in the delivery of a baby ( girl) in Boston Common park my first year in. Nothing tops that. You spend so much of your time dealing with the negative aspects of people in distress that this "positive" experiance was rewarding in itself. To experiance life first hand. It was wild. Thank god there were no pre eclampsia or other problems on scene.

 

- Worst call was a child drowning in Mattapan (a section) of Boston. I just remember the call going down all in slow motion, the helpless look on the mother's face and the empty feeling inside. When you start intubating a 4 year old child after knowing the child was down for a long time and the lifeless look on his face it stays with you along time.

 

Honorable Mentions go to most of the calls involving children- (trauma) burns, stabbings and (medicals) - like anaphylaxis or asthma - those suck. A memorable double shooting which was gore galore with questionable HIV present and one of the the first AMI calls I had in which the patient revived and flatlined twice in the back of the truck before losing him altogether. That shit stays with you a long time. I even remember their names.

 

------------------------------------

 

What's your favorite color?

 

I gotta go with blue with black not very far behind as my favorite color(s).

 

------------------------------------

 

 

So why did you feel the need to go with everyone else and open a question thread?

Hey, why not? I dunno part bordom part excitement...I just felt like it. It gives me food for thought, a few laughs and keeps me interested.

 

--------------------------------------

 

 

Do you ever wish you had saved your virginity for marraige?

 

Not really. I mean. I can honestly say that 90 percent of the women that I have had sex with I cared about for the most part. Most of them deeply. I learnt alot and most of it was more good than bad. Good training perhaps? I don't think that it will ultimately affect the way I am with my soulmate in a marraige sense, since the commitment from then on to be sworn to that person will overcome the past. At least I hope... better not dwell on that too much... :)

 

------------------------------------------

 

What's the sexiest thing that's ever happened to you?

 

That's tough. Let's see. Well I would say the time I had sex on the beach with my girlfriend at the time near the dunes after a bonfire one summer...It got a little wild when she started up with the foreplay and kept going when we could see that another female friend of ours was watching. This got even more interesting when I mentioned to her that someone was watching to which she replied, "I know...I told her to..." When I was at a complete loss for words was when the third friend came over and started maturbating while watching us. This led to kissing amongst the 2 females and then to me and then to 3 way sex. This hands down is one of the sexiest things that ever happended to a slouch like me for sure. I get so bummed just thinking about it 'cause it prolly won't ever happen again... :music:

 

-----------------------------------------

 

 

Do you like pickles? If so, why would you do that to yourself?

 

Is this a "Trick" question? LOL... I like Deli-style Dill pickles. :love:

When you were having your threesome on the beach, did you get sand in unwanted places?

Wasn't "The Hunt For Red October" made up by the Rangers?

Are you a cat or a dog person?

Do you like the zoo? What's your favorite part?

What's your favorite book? Author?

Do you know the square root of 198,567,236,456.25?? Does anyone?

What's the worst thing you've ever done in your life?

 

Not following my intended career path in grad school. comes to mind at the present moment.

 

What's the stupidest thing you've ever done when you've been drunk?

 

Kissed my supervisor co-worker's wife on the lips on a dare at a cookout party, set a beer bong on fire and fell down an icy flight of stairs taking about 6 people in front of me out to lunch as well. Moral of the story=beer and ice is a bitch and do not mix.

 

When you were having your threesome on the beach, did you get sand in unwanted places?

 

Yeah. but it wasn't too bad and didn't matter as the beach house was close by and the shower an integral part of the nightcap. I did have a sand in places that I didn't know I even had places... the shower stall was small as hell too... LOL.

 

Wasn't "The Hunt For Red October" made up by the Rangers?

 

I don't think so... at least I don't know of anything the Rangers in hockey or baseball had with this type of slogan...It is catchy though...and a fantastic read from Tom Clancy, another author that I love reading.

 

Are you a cat or a dog person?

 

I' allergic to cats. I am definately a dog person. I've had dogs all my life... in fact my closest buddy is an English Bulldog. He's laying right next to me as I write this.

 

Do you like the zoo? What's your favorite part?

 

The zoo... uh not really...LOL. But I like tigers, does that count? :2T:

 

What's your favorite book? Author?

 

-Anything from Stephen King who is a local boy and fellow red Sox fan :)

-The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown and

-Mindhunter by John Douglas.

 

Do you know the square root of 198,567,236,456.25?? Does anyone?

 

Do you sit up nights thinking of this stuff?....LOL........Ummmm I have no idea... 69?

 

Don't you think Johnny Damon is ever so dreamy?

 

Not really. NO. He's a mediocre baseball player with a large fan base here in town mostly because of his stupid antics...but hey he's Johnny, so we put up with him...

 

 

Is Boston better than New York?

 

I have lived my entire life in Boston or surrounding areas. But I did live in Manhattan very briefly when I was an undergrad for cooperative education employment-experiance purposes. Although I was facinated at first by Manhattan, the "novelty" was overated and wore off quickly.

I have to say that Boston is the best. Am I biased?- Of course..... but hey, the difference is slight....believe me. Intown there are many similarities with the hustle and flow of the city, traffic sucks in both places, but I think the people here are more tolerable, friendly and the areas in Boston are overall safer. Both are great sports cities, but the passion here is stronger and more appreciated. I recommend ya stop over in the Hub when ya come over SoF... and sample as we have fantastic restaraunts and some of the best Irish pubs outside of the motherland itself.

 

 

Why is Ice Hockey great?

 

I love the fast pace of hockey. Again, being brought up in Boston I had skates on and a stick in my hand at age 5. The game is a thinking man's game, physically challenging and has some of the best physically conditioned athletes in any professional sport.

Haha, that's cool. Been to all 5 of the first set, but actually none of the 5 in the 2nd set -- not sure what's up with that. Will have to give them a go.

 

You should do a Boyleston Street crawl and surrounding area, that place has some of my faves -- Bukowskis, The Other Side and Lir (on some nights).

 

'Nother question (about Boston again, apologies to everyone else):

Where would you recommend taking a special lady friend who is visiting me in Boston from the UK for a week that won't break the bank? Talking about bars, museums, etc, everything and anything.

I'd like to field MLB's question. For the cheapest of the cheap, there's Walden. Walden is a gret place of a half-day trip and you just need to bring a picnic basket. Walden is especially nice if this special lady is a well-read intellectual type, cause seriously, what well-read intellectual type doesn't like Thoreau and wouldn't dig seeing the place that's beauty inspired the transendentalist's movement greatest work.

 

Of course, that's just one day. MM will give more suggestions.

How many lives have you saved?

Do you count? (well obviously if you've answered the first question, I shouldn't be asking this one)

What is the best part about your job?

What's the happiest end to a call you've gotten?

Do you really drink as much as it seems?

Do you think you'll need a liver transplant at the age of 35?

sorry that was a bit dark.

On a happier note, did you ever try marijuana? did you like it?

That place is frikkin' great. Been there a few times. The cocktails are excellent, and actually fairly reasonable considering the view. Drinks aren't much more than any of the other nice bars really.

 

Made myself look like a right tourist though wondering around the windows with my digital camera.

 

I'm gonna take her out on the lash for at least one night. Might have to start the night there in style and end up in the dives by the end.

Ahh, no you don't- trust me, Beantown is a better choice. Aside from the fact that all this city can offer I am offering my services as a tourguide, my friend. Screw NY. :howyoudoin:

 

 

Is Ireland the Greatest Country on Earth?? (or am i being biased)

Of course, you are being biased, but who cares? My heritage and family lineage traces back to Ireland as well. I think the best country is my home-country. The US, hell I'm biased too.

 

Top 10 why the US is King.

 

10. Even lowly interns can meet the President. :howyoudoin:

9. Hot chicks, fast cars and Dollar Drafts Tuesdays!!

8. The Pamela and Tommy Lee tape. :ohface:

7. Three glorious words: "World Wrestling Federation." :)

6. In U.S. it is acceptable for a grown man to wear skimpy shorts and a lot of oil.

5. Mexico invented the burrito, but we made it microwaveable!

4. Jeopardy's host: Canadian. Nine out of 10 winners on Jeopardy: American.

3. If you're really good at sports, you get to kill people.

2. Europe may have fancy architecture, but we've got Hooters!

1. LAS VEGAS.

Do you live in an apartment or a house?

 

Did you ever wet the bed when you were a kid?

 

Have you ever whacked off while watching porn and tried to time it so that when you cum you are staring at some part of the chicky's body and not the fella's?

From MLB-

The Red Sox- After tonights dismal result: Can we expect another miracle like last year?

 

RS_btn.jpg

 

End Game

 

Is this the end?

Idiot friends

Is this the end?

With just one prize, the end

 

Of our elaborate plans, the end

Of everything that stands, the end

No comeback or surprise, the end

We'll never see some of our guys...again

 

Can you picture what will be

If South Side does the sweep

Desperately in need...of some...knuckled hand

In a...desperate land

 

Lost in a Boston...wilderness of pain

And all the children wait in vain

All the children wait in vain

Waiting for the autumn pain, yeah

 

"There is doubt in the 2005 Red Sox. You can see it in their eyes and hear it in their voices. The Sox said all of the right things, at least publicly, following their Game 2 loss Wednesday night in Chicago to the White Sox. They said them again yesterday at Fenway Park. But when the lights are off and the notebooks are closed, they have the same feelings and observations about this team that you do."

 

They wonder if they are good enough.

 

I hope so. :sad:

 

 

From C&J-

How many lives have you saved? Do you count?

 

You know what Christy- I don't count. I stopped thinking on those terms awhile back. What I remember is this I am an intrument and I use my skills as best as I can. I remember that it is not my life and is someone elses. - and that scares the shit out of me when I sit back and really think about it like that. I remember the good things and the calls that went right and it makes me feel good. I remember the bad calls and use that as a learning tool for the next time. That's what makes me able to go to work everyday, and that alone.

 

What is the best part about your job?

 

The positive outcomes of calls done right. A life saved. A child's smile. An elderly person's touch. The rush of the lights and sirens. The fast pace.

 

What's the happiest end to a call you've gotten?

 

- Most exciting was the assist in the delivery of a baby ( girl) in Boston Common park my first year in. Nothing tops that. You spend so much of your time dealing with the negative aspects of people in distress that this "positive" experiance was rewarding in itself. To experiance life first hand. It was wild.

 

Do you really drink as much as it seems?

 

No. not really. Hey I love to drink...I love the game of pool (billiards) and am a frequent Boston pub patron (reference Barfly thread) partly due to my Irish heritage to imbibe the grape and partly due to my need to socialize in good company. But I do it moderately. Seriously I do. I may go periods of time when I haven't drank at all. The Barfly days and the Bruins and Sox games and the local get togethers are when I do that most.

 

Do you think you'll need a liver transplant at the age of 35?

 

Nope. Reference above. hehehe... I work out almost every day, I eat healthy and I don't drink as much as it seems. (hic). :ok:

 

Did you ever try marijuana? Did you like it?

 

Never. Don't think I will either for 2 reasons. 1.) It doesn't appeal to me. 2.) Random piss testing and smoking equal unemployment for me faster than you can say the word "weed". Pass. (No pun intended). :pinch:

 

From FDB-

Would you ever keep a rat as a pet?

 

Prolly not. The rat doesn't seem like a good pet to me. They aren't as friendly as a dog. They stink and they bite and they are just not my cup o' tea. I saw a rat get fed to a python once though. That was pretty cool. :huh:

 

 

Have you ever had some gnarly sex germ like crabs or gonorhea?

 

Nope. Gnarly is hardly the word. LOL. Thank God I am very cognizant about who I choose to have sex with. Not that it couldn't happen... but to answer your question my plumbing is healthy, monitored and never been at risk for a STD in the past.

 

Do you lick the cream off Oreos before you eat them?

That's erotic.

It Depends on my mood. If I want the "cream" before the "crunch" I do. Other times I switch up and "Dip" 'em in whole in milk or save the "cream" for last. :D

 

Do you live in an apartment or a house?

 

Bought my first Colonial last spring. It's a constant pain in the ass to keep clean, but I can finally play my stereo loud as fuck without a pain in the ass landlord calling the cops.

 

Did you ever wet the bed when you were a kid?

 

Maybe a few times after nightmares or giant glasses of water before bed. I don't remember it ever being a problem. Nope never suffered from enuresis as a kid. :eh:

 

Have you ever whacked off while watching porn and tried to time it so that when you cum you are staring at some part of the chicky's body and not the fella's?

 

:hmm:

 

Fuck no.

 

:blink:

 

Sicko.

From Sig-

Do you like Van Halen?

----------------------------------

 

Hell Yes. Van Halen for some is meh alright. For some, they don't like the band. I simply love them. From the original Roth group through the Sammy years (my fave) Van Halen IMO is awesome. I idolize Eddie's finesse on the guitar and Alex on the drums.

 

Alex%20van%20Halen.jpg

 

As far as Mike Anthony is concerned. Well, there's no more deserving working man in show buisness on the big bad bass than Mike. I have over the years learned alot in both my drumming and bass playing from this band. Yeah VH is at the top of my list and one of my favorite bands of all time.
