Name: Joshua Alan Doetsch
Birthday: Arpil 28, 1979
Birthplace: I don’t remember. I was a freaking baby!
Current Location: Sringfield IL, specifically in my apartment…with no means of being anywhere else, at the moment, other than running.
Eye Color: dark
Hair Color: dark
Height: dark…er…5′ 10″
Right Handed or Left Handed: Right Handed
Your Heritage: Mixed. There’s German (last name is the big hint), supposedly some Native American (I don’t really know for sure, just rumor, and my Mom visited a reserve a youth and the locals kept asking her what tribe she was), a smattering of other genes, and my Mom’s side of the family apparently goes back to the Mayflower (William Bradford, the Pilgrims first governor, was my great x? grandfather).
The Shoes You Wore Today: Are laceless. You silly sods! Wasting all that time tying your shoes. The time adds up. And with my growing advantage I shall conquer the world!
Your Weakness:
Your Fears: There is a possessed doll, on the Island of Key West, named Robert. I made fun of him when I met him at the museum display. He scares me…
Your Perfect Pizza: delivered by a cute pizza girl who asks about my “disturbed” necklace
Goal You Would Like To Achieve This Year: Write an epic poem.
Your Most Overused Phrase On an instant messenger: “Josh, the restraining order extends to contact over the internet.” Well…I hear it allot anyway.
Thoughts First Waking Up: hmmm…nice night
Your Best Physical Feature: Well, I’m often told I have very “healthy” or “sexy” hair. Stylists usually tell me they are jealous. Girls like running their hands through it (I don’t mind this). Also, for my level of fitness, I have prodigiously strong leg/calve muscles. They just came with the body. Now that I’m running they’ve gotten better. At the gym, I’m almost out of weights on the leg machines. The huge muscle guys, though much larger than I, never have calve muscles as developed. I think I could lie down and lift a car…uh…with my legs that is. If only I could spread that to my upper body…
Your Bedtime: Just after Dracula starts to sweat – just before the rooster reaches the third crow.
Your Most Missed Memory: Living with my old EC buddies in Langston. Childhood trick or treat sessions rank up there too.
Pepsi or Coke: Depends. Coke is a sunny picnic, sporting even, drink mixing beverage. Pepsi is a late night, 14 hour video game session, long road trip drink. My pallet is a protean thing, me thinks.
MacDonalds or Burger King: Taco Bell – raping a culture’s culinary heritage one Chalupa at a time.
Single or Group Dates: harem
Lipton Ice Tea or Nestea: rum
Chocolate or Vanilla: chocolate (taste) – vanilla (scent)
Cappuccino or Coffee: CAFFEINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you Smoke: Cigars, occasionally. Less occasionally is a cigarette, smoked like a cigar, mostly as a bar prop and a handy excuse to practice a little sleight of hand and crafty chicanery to drunk people everywhere.
Do you Swear: yes…what…you expecting me to cleverly drop a swear into my answer? That it? I won’t do it. I won’t give you the sick satisfaction…oh sh…ah…got ya.
Do you Sing: In the car…occasionally at karaoke.
Do you Shower Daily: yes…why? What did they tell you?
Have you Been in Love: yes
Do you want to go to College: yes…I may never stop
Do you want to get Married: maybe
Do you belive in yourself: Yes…I’m afraid that if I didn’t, I might fade away.

Do you think you are Attractive: At night. Not in the day.
Are you a Health Freak: No. But I have started running alot. I can’t stop. I have to run to sleep.
Do you get along with your Parents: Yes. I still go to bars/concerts with them every so often.
Do you like Thunderstorms: YES. Turbulent weather turns me on. You can see, touch, feel, hear it…hits all the senses. “Josh, that tornado is coming right for you. Run!!!” “I can’t…I’ve got too big of an erection!”
Do you play an Instrument: Why yes I…oh…literally. I started fooling around with a base guitar I got a couple Christmas’s ago.

In a Boy/Girl..
Favourite Eye Color: I don’t really have a preconceived notion of the girls I want to meet. Case by case…
Favourite Hair Color: see above
Short or Long Hair: see above
Height: big boobs!………I mean…….see above
Weight: Far better to err on the side of curves. What the hell is with runway models? The bodies of ten year old boys do not attract me. Wasn’t there a time when straight men had a say in what was attractive in women?
Best Clothing Style: without…hehe…had to say it
Number of Drugs I have taken: Caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, marijuana, absinthe
Number of CDs I own: A handful. Most of my music is electronic.
Number of Piercings: none
Number of Tattoos: None, but shopping around for one.
Number of things in my Past I Regret: Overly meditating on past pains or glories (or the future) slows us down in the present. The present is motion. We are most ourselves when we are in motion, in transition. Drop the baggage and twirl!
