If by meme you mean something to waste time with.
The ABCs of … Pierce
Accent: Mostly southern. It really depends on the day and the word and who Iâ€™ve been around lately.
Booze: Donâ€™t hardly drink no more. When I do, itâ€™s been margaritas or beer. Back in high school and the Marines, when I was the devastated driver, it was anything that sat still long enough; a particular favorite was Hi-C Fruit Punch and Everclear in a big-ass gas station mug.
Chore I Hate: Dealing with the litter box. Of course itâ€™s my job.
Dog or Cat: One of each right now.
Essential Electronics: Computer. I start to get twitchy if I go too long without.
Favorite Cologne: None. Iâ€™ve always avoided the stuff; must be an after-effect of the doused-in-Polo years. That shit still makes me gag.
Gold or Silver: Silver. Some white gold, because we couldnâ€™t find wedding rings we liked in silver.
Hometown: Sherwood, Ark., a bedroom community north of Little Rock.
Insomnia: All the time. More of a problem now that I have apnea. Or maybe because Iâ€™m bipolar.
Job Title: None right now. Donâ€™t miss having one; miss working, though.
Kids: One of each. Girlâ€™s five and damned near a clone of me; boyâ€™s three, looks more like mom but has some of my more endearing qualities.
Living arrangements: In a rental house on a dead-end street behind a hospital with a trauma center and helipad, with wife, kids, animals and a whole lot of junk.
Most admirable traits: Loyalty, intelligence, humor, determination.
Not going to cop to: All the Disney Channel shows I like: Jojoâ€™s Circus, Go Baby, Charlie & Lola, Stanley, The Koala Brothers, Shannaâ€™s Show, Kim Possible. KPâ€™s probably the hardest to explain. I mean, the rest are right down the kidsâ€™ alley.
Overnight hospital stays: Letâ€™s see, appendicitis as a kid, broken finger as a Marine, uvulopalatopharyngoplasy/polypectomy/tonsilectomy as an AP reporter, births of my children (though I really didnâ€™t have to stay, since I didnâ€™t do much work).
Phobias: Bugs and spiders; deep water.
Quote: There are things it is better to try to fix with no chance of success than to allow to continue without protest; itâ€™s not that you may be the straw that breaks the camelâ€™s back, but if you pile on, maybe you put it one day closer to breaking.
Religion: None. I don’t need a magic fairy to blame/thank for my situation.
Siblings: One, a sister, 13 days short of being 13 years younger than I. Thank you very much banned herbicide, if youâ€™d have stayed legal for a few more years, Iâ€™d have been an only child. We actually get along now that sheâ€™s not sucking the available resources out of our family.
Time I wake up: When I have to. Given my druthers, itâ€™s around 10, but I donâ€™t want to sleep before 4.
Unusual talent or skill: Ability to see dust on my eyeballs.
Vegetables I love: Brussels sprouts and turnip greens
Worst habit: Smoking when I smoke, procrastinating when I procrastinate
X-rays: So many I should glow in the dark
Yummy foods I make: Fried pickles, cornbread, steak, spaghetti, creamy garlic mashed potatoes. Excuse me, I gotta go eat now.
Zodiac sign: Libra, the best one of all.
