  • Member Questionnaire!

    Hello everyone! Interested in getting to know your fellow MWM members and guests? Here's something that will allow that. I got this from a friend. I will paste the questions and my answers below, and if it looks like fun to you, you can cut the blank question section below, and paste and answer in your own reply!
    Cool! Like your father once said, "I know you can do it!"

    1. LIVING ARRANGEMENT? nice three bedroom house in Mira Mesa-- S.D., CA
    2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? I am in the middle of a lot of books right now: Gunslinger: The Wastelands S. King, Elric Saga: The Vanishing Tower Michael Moorcock, Chronicles of Corum: Knight of the Swords Moorcock, Slaughterhouse 5 Kurt Vonnegut Jr., and The Catcher in the Rye JD Salinger.
    3. WHAT'S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? Corning / Costar mousepad I got for free when I was working at a biotech company.
    4. FAVORITE BOARD GAME? not really applicable to me, but I guess I could say Pictionary.
    5. FAVORITE MAGAZINE? Penthouse Forum Just Kidding! Don't really read magazines anymore. Guitar Magazine, but most of the rock bands that are hot right now, I mostly don't really care about so no reason for me to buy.
    6a. FAVORITE SMELLS? My friend Brande wears this awesome perfume, but I don't know what it's called Oh well....
    6b. LEAST FAVORITE SMELLS? rotting flesh isn't too pleasant (but never made me puke). Yes, there are stories behind this, as some of you already know! There was this raw chicken in my fridge one time that went bad, it smelled just like rotten dead people, so it's possible to try at home!! ;)
    7. FAVORITE SOUND? I'm not that intensely audiophillic! The sound of a good fart after that crazy bean burrito from last night! nah, more seriously-- I guess the tone of E minor on a detuned guitar with a lot of distortion.
    8. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD? when you feel as though you've been stabbed in the back. Hasn't happened to me to any kind of extreme degree. When I got kicked out of a band, it felt like that kind of thing ...and then they fell apart. haha
    9. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING? Usually... I got a few minutes still... [reaching out] just hit the snooze button,,,
    10. FAVORITE COLOR? shades of green that don't look gray due to my mild RG colorblindness, and of course... I like the absence of color-- En Espaأ±ol se llama negro
    11. HOW MANY RINGS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE PHONE? a lot of times don't even answer, caller ID is a recluse's gift from God!
    12. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME? Luke I am your father! J/K Who says I'm having kids? If I am, why didn't anyone tell me dammit!?!?
    13. WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT IN LIFE? Wasn't this in the script of Conan the Barbarian? "Crush your enemies! See them driven before you! And the lamentation of their women!" Oh sorry that was the answer to "What is best in life?", but isn't that the same thing? I live for my own pleasure... Me! Me! Me! without being a narcissist, nor hedonist, nor anything with negative connotations. Yes, yes I can be gluttonous at times What can I say? I am a human animal after all!
    14. FAVORITE FOODS? I like the taste of salt and fat and sweet, so I love to eat many things and i'm sure there are good foods i've never even had yet! but because I want to be as close as possible to our culture's cannon of the ideal body, I try really hard to not over-eat and eat more empty calorie things like lettuce and celery Ugh! And I have my own genetics to battle with Argh! :( I'm losing! oh well hopefully I can age gracefully.

    15. CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA? Vanilla shakes and ice cream especially after 420 Ecstatic! but I eat chocolate more though. I try to keep the sweets on low intake, otherwise I don't see why I wouldn't have a vanilla shake every day! WOO HOO!!
    16. DO YOU LIKE TO DRIVE FAST? No. It's my destiny i think to live long time! If Sonny Bono died from smashing into a tree...25mph or so (isn't it how he died?) just think of your body smashing into a telephone pole at 70+ mph. It's not pretty. I've seen some bodies first hand
    17. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL? No, I'm a guy dammit. I still am a child kind of though. I sleep with kikat usually :)
    18. STORMS - COOL OR SCARY? you mean like the ones with thunder and lightning? Yeah, pretty cool. but if you are talking about the tumult that goes on inside my brain everyday, it might be like more on the scary side! ;)
    19. WHAT TYPE WAS YOUR FIRST CAR? a blue 1980something Datsun Station wagon. yee haa! I called it the Cuzzmobile.
    20. IF YOU COULD MEET ONE PERSON DEAD OR ALIVE WHO WOULD IT BE? Your mom! ;) How about Rob Halford and Chris Cornell at a music awards ceremony where I won a prize!
    21. FAVORITE ALCOHOLIC DRINK? Your mom! I don't really drink, but if you get me a drink, I'll drink it. and if I'm driving, that'll prob be my only drink.
    22. WHAT IS YOUR ZODIAC SIGN? Virgo on cusp of Leo
    23. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS OF BROCCOLI? Yes. and?
    24. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB YOU WANTED WHAT WOULD IT BE? Jobs aren't fun. Working 40+ hrs/week sucks! No one told me about this stuff when I was 10! If you're doing something you love... for me that could be musician, visual artist, or teacher... then it's not really a job in my opinion... you have found your niche my child! I'm aim to be a teacher someday soon if I don't make it as an artist or entertainer or somethin or other.
    25. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR WHAT COLOR WOULD IT BE? well if I wanted to dye it a certain color, I would have dyed it already and it would presently be that color right? and it wouldn't be blond if I wanted to. Brown people with blond hair is stupid. Sorry if I offend you asian and black people with blonde hair! ;) I'm sure someone out there thinks it's attractive
    26. EVER BEEN IN LOVE? Yes But probably not in the sense that the maker of this questionairre (<-- I'll never learn how to spell this) had in mind
    27. IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL? The damn glass has an ellipse approximately at the mid-line from the rim where its maximum carrying capacity would be reached. Look, you can see for yourself! perhaps you need your glasses, or perhaps you must get a prescription The best answer: your mom!
    28. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE? Still Ghost World Sooo funny! to people like me at least. How about LOTR? Yeah despite all the homosexuality in it, the holes in the plot. Hey I'm a visual person, and it is stunning visually. Yeah yeah. i know you all are looking forward to that damn Star Wars thing.... If only it were still the 70's, whatever Lucas's mind was like back then, the last three might be sort of good movies....
    29. DO YOU TYPE WITH YOUR FINGERS ON THE RIGHT KEYS? Yes. Thank you Taft Jr. High!
    30. WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED? Papers from a genetics class I took. Old photo album, shoes, a way old issue of Pulse! with Aimee Mann on the cover, a printer cable, no dust bunnies (believe it or not) and REALLY, believe it or not-- a cockroach trap. There's nothing inside it, so I guess I can throw it out. (One evening I saw a big black one crawl underneath. That's what I get for leaving the door to the garage open!) ;0
    31. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NUMBER? don't really have. but if i must, 3, 69 , 666, 1073, my personal pin #, and your mom's phone number! ;)
    32. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH? basketball. but if Killing your mom was a sport, I'd like that one !
    33. SAY ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU. Tanya is a very nice lady, but I haven't really had the kind of intimacy I'd like to have with her (no, it doesn't mean sex you damn people!) but it's prob. cuz she's focused on her future and terribly terribly busy.
    34. PERSON YOU SENT THIS TO WHO IS MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND? I didn't send it yet. but I know what you mean, and the answer is no one. I don't expect much from you human animals
    35. PERSON YOU SENT THIS TO WHO IS LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND? I didn't send it yet. everyone
    36. IF YOU WON $10 MILLION, WOULD YOU SHARE? Yes, but i don't see how it's winning... the best things in life have nothing to do with money. but I know what the question is asking and the answer is yes. I'd do better than share. You can ask me what that means if you want.
    37. WHERE WOULD YOU GO, WHAT WOULD YOU DO? It would better allow me to pursue my creativity, and actualize ideas, bring my dreams to life, and I would help some people that i give a damn about in bringing their dreams to life, and that may well mean you, my friend! :)
    38. IF YOU COULD PURCHASE ANY CAR YOU WANTED, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I like Tanya's answer. I want a hybrid car , you know runs on electricity , more enegry efficient,, that's big enough to hold passengers and gear.
    That's it? cool! say hi to your mom for me! :D
    =======Ok! Now....

        1. LIVING ARRANGEMENT? Living in my parent's basement until I find a roomate.
        2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? Nothing actually. The local bookstore closed and our library is pathetic.
        3. WHAT'S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? don't have one. Optical mouse.
        4. FAVORITE BOARD GAME? Go, Chess, or Trivial Pursuit
        5. FAVORITE MAGAZINE? Don't really have one. Used to love National Geographic, but don't have a subscription any more.
        6a. FAVORITE SMELLS? Jasmine, lilac, lavender...any light smell really. Or Neatsfoot oil, Hoppe's 8 gun oil, or weapon's oil. Also, I've always enjoyed the smell of burned nitrates (like recently fired gunpowder).
        6b. LEAST FAVORITE SMELLS? sewage, gasoline, bowels (one of my brother's friends gut-shot a deer this last year while hunting...not very pleasant).
        7. FAVORITE SOUND? someone else's pleasure :roll:
        8. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD? That "oh shit" feeling you get when you know you messed up big time and there's nothign you can do about it. I guess its akin to hoplessness.
        9. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING? it varies everyday...today it was something about how my urge to sleep and skip work was a representation of chaos but the lawful predictability of my alarm balanced it out. I really don't know where that bizzare thought came from, but then, I rarely know where my first thought of the day comes from.
        10. FAVORITE COLOR? I feel blues are the most expressive colours...but I don't think they're perfect for everything.
        11. HOW MANY RINGS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE PHONE? *shrug* depends on my mood.
        12. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME? I'll not think about that 'till the time comes.
        13. WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT IN LIFE? being able to look at yourself proudly in the mirror. Self-respect, I guess.
        14. FAVORITE FOODS? a good filet-minon. fresh farm-grown corn-on-the-cob. Lee's Special Lo Mein (alas, Lee's Chop Suey is now out of business so I will never again have this *sigh*).
        15. CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA? Vanilla!
        16. DO YOU LIKE TO DRIVE FAST? hm...If I'm on a curvey road, in my car, and need to let off some steam; yes. Otherwise, no.
        17. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL? no. Just my cat Dixie.
        19. WHAT TYPE WAS YOUR FIRST CAR? 1988 Dodge Dynasty named "Betsy" (cliche, I know, but it fit so well). I couldn't stand that car. now I have a 2001 Mazda Protege MP3.
        20. IF YOU COULD MEET ONE PERSON DEAD OR ALIVE WHO WOULD IT BE? hmm, I don't rightly know. There are alot of people I'd like to meet, but I don't have any great pressing questions for any of them, so I couldn't say I'd want to meet one more than the others. I guess I'd like to have diner with Mr. Moorcock sometime...or Tad Williams...Even Weis and Hickman could be interesting. Otherwise, getting a little more ambitious, I'd say Da Vinci.
        21. FAVORITE ALCOHOLIC DRINK? Don't drink much, but on the rare occassion I have a drink (and it is just one drink, I never have more than that) I get a Tangueray (sp?) and tonic. I can't stand most house-gin's. If I want something with less kick, I'll get a Newcastle if it's available.
        22. WHAT IS YOUR ZODIAC SIGN? Pieces
        23. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS OF BROCCOLI? naw, don't even eat broccoli.
        24. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB YOU WANTED WHAT WOULD IT BE? writter or college prof.
        25. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR WHAT COLOR WOULD IT BE? *shrug* I'm fine with my hair.
        27. IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL? depends on how much I'm enjoying it.
        28. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE? I like so many...
        29. DO YOU TYPE WITH YOUR FINGERS ON THE RIGHT KEYS? mostly..."c" I usually hit with my index finger instead of my middle though, 'cause my middle finger on my left hand is half numb from nearly being cut off once...makes it hard to hit the "c" right.
        30. WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED? my late-uncles collection of late 19th century rifles.
        31. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NUMBER? 3
        32. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH? hockey
        33. IF YOU WON $10 MILLION, WOULD YOU SHARE? yeah, I think so.
        34. WHERE WOULD YOU GO, WHAT WOULD YOU DO? anything, except not work. I'd probably become a professional student...I love learning.
        35. IF YOU COULD PURCHASE ANY CAR YOU WANTED, WHAT WOULD IT BE? either an Aston Martin DB-4, DB-9 (due out this spring), Vanquish; or a Shelby Series 1, a Shelby AC Cobra; or, finally, a BMW M-3.

          1. Living arrangement? Since I'm still in full time education, I live with my dad.
          2. What book are you reading now? James Clavell's Shogun (Quite enlightening since I study japanese,) Ray Bradbury- Fahrenheit 451, Iain.M.Banks-The state of the Art, and Moorcock-A Cornelius calendar.
          3. What's on your mouse pad? Platinum education UK, because it has a picture of an elephant on it. I love elephants.
          4. Favourite board game? Othello
          5. Favourite magazine? I don't go in for magazines, especially not the ones aimed at my age-group. I bought an issue of Catalyst magazine once, but only because it had a free revision guide.
          6a. Favourite smells? Fresh peaches, paper, rain.
          6b. Least favourite smells? Sandwiches that have been left in my schoolbag over the summer holidays, cat poo, scared animals (And they do smell different when they're scared).
          7. Favourite sound? Rain on trees.
          8. Worst feeling in the world? Realising that someone you genuinely liked doesn't like you at all and was just setting you up so that other people could laugh at you.
          9. What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning? ...ngh...too bright...!
          10. Favourite colour? Dark
          11. How many rings before you pick up the phone? Enough that if it is a salesperson, someone else has already picked up their phone, but not so much so that real people hang up. It's a talent.
          12. Future child's name? Emily if it's a girl, Aaron if it's a boy. No way I'm having children any time soon, though.
          13. What is most important in life? Laughter.
          14. Favourite foods? Chocolate and caramel flapjacks, choux buns, bombay potatoes like I make them, not the shop-bought stuff. I used to like pastrami with black pepper around the edges too, but I'm vegetarian now, so I don't get to eat it any more.
          15. Chocolate or vanilla? Vanilla.
          16. Do you like to drive fast? I'm underage- never driven.
          17. Do you sleep with a stuffed animal? No, but I am often woken up by a rat sitting on my face. That count?
          19. What type was your first car? See above- never driven.
          20. If you could meet one person dead or alive, who would it be? Probably my mother. She died when I was quite small, so I never got to know her.
          21. Favourite alchoholic drink? At my age I shouldn't legally be drinking... I like Bacardi breezer lime or Vodka with lemonade.
          22. What is your Zodiac sign? Scorpio
          23. Do you eat the stems of broccoli? Yes, that's the nicest part!
          24. If you could have any job what would it be? Ruler of Earth
          25. If you could dye your hair any colour, what would it be? Platinum blonde.
          27. Is the glass half empty or half full? Empty... Needs more drink!
          28. What is your favourite movie? Anything Stanley Kubrick (sp?)
          29. Do you type with your fingers on the right keys? Nope
          30. What's under your bed? Junk and stuff. I should really clean it at some point.
          31. What is your favourite number? 12
          32. Favourite sport to watch? Cricket. Not that I understand it, but no-one else seems to either.
          33. If you won آ£10 million, would you share? Yes.
          34. Where would you go, what would you do? Short of ruling the world, I would go to Japan and become a manga artist.
          35. If you could purchase any car you wanted, what would it be? A Lotus, I think, any of the new ones.

              This is a good idea Jerico. I hope more people post, too. I always like to know a bit about the people who post on a board. Makes them more than just a name in pixels.

              1. LIVING ARRANGEMENT? Wood frame house, built circa 1885.
              2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? The Revenge of the Rose, by our Mr. M. Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett. Putting the Tarot to Work by Mark McElroy.
              3. WHAT'S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? Using a laptop with no mouse pad, but my desktop computer has a mouse pad with an image from a Web site called Pemberley, for fans of Jane Austen.
              4. FAVORITE BOARD GAME? I'm more into video games now-a-days, but we have Monopoly, Clue, and Scrabble.
              5. FAVORITE MAGAZINE? Don't read magazines much. I like National Geographic.
              6a. FAVORITE SMELLS? I'm really sensitive to smells. I love the scent of my husband's skin and the smell of my child's hair. I love the scent of chocolate, vanilla, lavender, roses, spices, tea, coffee. I also love the smell of the woods, especially just after it rains.
              6b. LEAST FAVORITE SMELLS? I abhorr cigarette smoke-- it smells as bad as rotten flesh and shit. I have asthma, so smoke also causes me a lot of pain.
              7. FAVORITE SOUND? The voices of my husband and child.
              8. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD? Fear-- fear of losing my husband or child, fear of being attacked, fear of abandonment.
              9. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING? Going back to sleep!
              10. FAVORITE COLOR? Green. But I'm an artist and I love all colours.
              11. HOW MANY RINGS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE PHONE? I have four rings before it goes to voice mail. I have caller ID, so I'll answer it after one ring if it's someone I want to talk to.
              12. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME? No longer in the future but here now: Lilja. It's Finnish, means lily.
              13. WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT IN LIFE? My husband and child.
              14. FAVORITE FOODS? Chocolate.
              15. CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA? Chocolate, but I like vanilla, too.
              16. DO YOU LIKE TO DRIVE FAST? Usually about 10 over the speed limit if it is a road with little traffic. I don't like anyone in front of me, dictating my pace, but I also hate being tailgated. How about this-- when I leave the house, everyone get off the road and leave me to it.
              17. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL? Well, if my husband has had too much for dinner, I suppose he could, technically, be considered a stuffed animal.
              19. WHAT TYPE WAS YOUR FIRST CAR? Chevy Nova with large amounts of Bondo. I didn't own it; my parents let me use it.
              20. IF YOU COULD MEET ONE PERSON DEAD OR ALIVE WHO WOULD IT BE? Um, well, I've met a lot of living people. Not too many dead ones. Rather dull conversationalists, your dead. As for famous people, Michael Moorcock, of course. Others: Terry Pratchett, Jane Austen, Stendhal. Not too many actors I would care to meet other than Damien Lewis, Rowan Atkinson, John Cleese, Patricia Routledge and a few more of the older British actresses. Absolutely no one from L.A. or Hollywood. Can't stomach those personalities.
              21. FAVORITE ALCOHOLIC DRINK? Vouvray, or any other semi-sweet, good quality wine.
              22. WHAT IS YOUR ZODIAC SIGN? Gemini.
              23. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS OF BROCCOLI? No.
              24. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB YOU WANTED WHAT WOULD IT BE? A writer.
              25. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR WHAT COLOR WOULD IT BE? I've never dyed my hair and don't want to. I like the colour it is already, despite being teased for it as a child.
              27. IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL? Of what? Half empty or half full is not as relevant as what is in the glass.
              28. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE? Hmm, tough one. I like lots of movies. Ridicule. Certain productions of Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, and Persuasion. The Austin Powers movies. Master and Commander. Damn the Defiant. The Thin Man movies. Shrek.
              29. DO YOU TYPE WITH YOUR FINGERS ON THE RIGHT KEYS? Yes, but not particularly well.
              30. WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED? Boxes of clothes that I hope will someday fit again before they go out of style. And a chamber pot, just in case.
              31. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NUMBER? I try to avoid numbers whenever possible.
              32. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH? None.
              33. IF YOU WON $10 MILLION, WOULD YOU SHARE? Yes.
              34. WHERE WOULD YOU GO, WHAT WOULD YOU DO? I'd take my family to England, Europe, Finland, other places. I'd make donations to charities I like, especially women's issues and anti-tobacco organisations. I'd start some sort of scholarship program.
              35. IF YOU COULD PURCHASE ANY CAR YOU WANTED, WHAT WOULD IT BE? I already have the vehicle I wanted-- a dark green Jeep Liberty. My husband wants a Mini Cooper. I wouldn't turn my nose up at a Jaguar or an Audi, either.

                When they had advanced together to meet on common
                ground, then there was the clash of shields, of spears
                and the fury of men cased in bronze; bossed shields met
                each other and the din rose loud. Then there were
                mingled the groaning and the crowing of men killed and
                killing, and the ground ran with blood.

                Homer, The Illiad

                  Re: Member Questionnaire!

                  Crikey, that's a lot of questions (and a lot of answers to read). Here goes:

                  1. LIVING ARRANGEMENT? Back in my parents' house after a few years away at university. 70s semi-detached in quiet English countryside (I hear the cows mooing sometimes). Also near the seaside. Lucky me!
                  2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? Blood by Mr Moorcock and The Second Sex by Simone De Beauvoir
                  3. WHAT'S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? The PowerPuff Girls (my choice)
                  4. FAVORITE BOARD GAME? Poleconomy, the dullest board game known to man or beast (and therefore a true challenge).
                  5. FAVORITE MAGAZINE? Total Film (monthly film reviews, etc.). Although right now I'd kill for a copy of the French edition of Elle with Ludivine Sagnier on the cover.
                  6a. FAVORITE SMELLS? Oil, wet paint and seaweed.
                  6b. LEAST FAVORITE SMELLS? Burning flesh.
                  7. FAVORITE SOUND? Well, for the sake of decency I'll say "purring" and leave it at that.
                  8. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD? Reading that your best friend in the world has died, knowing you can't go to the funeral.
                  9. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING? Where's my dream journal?
                  10. FAVORITE COLOR? Green.
                  11. HOW MANY RINGS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE PHONE? I don't answer. We have machines for that (so passive agressive).
                  12. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME? Alexander Huberht.
                  13. WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT IN LIFE? Accepting that it ends.
                  14. FAVORITE FOODS? Bagels, hummous, chocolate.
                  15. CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA? Triple choc, with choc chips and sauce.
                  16. DO YOU LIKE TO DRIVE FAST? I like to be driven fast. I can't drive.
                  17. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL? Yes. Move along.
                  19. WHAT TYPE WAS YOUR FIRST CAR? n/a
                  20. IF YOU COULD MEET ONE PERSON DEAD OR ALIVE WHO WOULD IT BE? Ludivine Sagnier, but only if she'll dance for me (she's a French actress, from Swimming Pool , Peter Pan and 8 Women)
                  21. FAVORITE ALCOHOLIC DRINK? Rum and cola.
                  22. WHAT IS YOUR ZODIAC SIGN? Gemini. I do take an interest in my horoscope, but don't take it too seriously.
                  23. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS OF BROCCOLI? Not that I know of. Is that a bad thing? I'll have to read everyone else's answers.
                  24. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB YOU WANTED WHAT WOULD IT BE? Being paid to do what I do naturally (read, draw comicks, keep journals).
                  25. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR WHAT COLOR WOULD IT BE? I have the dye, but am too scared to use it. It's called "cosmic blue" and is basically jet black with a royal blue tint. I bought the permanent version, and I can't be bothered growing it out. There is a washable version now, so I might try that sometime. All part of my goth-envy.
                  27. IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL? It's half-full, and there's a little cocktail umbrella and ice (if you have the right sort of eyes).
                  28. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE? Amelie. Did I mention that already?
                  29. DO YOU TYPE WITH YOUR FINGERS ON THE RIGHT KEYS? I type with my index fingers only. I tried "touch typing" at school, but I can do 40wpm with my index fingers, so I don't see the point. Also, you move your eyes more if you look at the keys, so they bleed less after several hours at a computer.
                  30. WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED? Boxes of books from my university days and all of my coursework, just waiting to be pulled out and dusted off when I need the perfect quote. Also, a red/white/blue sweat-band.
                  31. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NUMBER? Three.
                  32. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH? The parallel bars. No idea why, I just like to see people swinging back and forth so quickly without losing their grip. That might be a metaphor for something.
                  33. IF YOU WON $10 MILLION, WOULD YOU SHARE? Absolutely. Friends, charities... nobody needs that much money. It's obsecne.
                  34. WHERE WOULD YOU GO, WHAT WOULD YOU DO? I'd like to see Paris someday, but not as a tourist.
                  35. IF YOU COULD PURCHASE ANY CAR YOU WANTED, WHAT WOULD IT BE? It would be Lambourgini Countach. I can't drive, so I'd just sit in the garage drooling over it.

                    32. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH? Sports are a distraction and I generally think that they are appallingly silly. Knowing that someone really likes to follow sports doesn't in any way improve my opinion of that person, it probably detracts from that opinion.
                    33. IF YOU WON $10 MILLION, WOULD YOU SHARE? With my family, yes - but that's actually not that much money any longer. I'd need 25-50% just for myself and my SO to retire comfortably.
                    34. WHERE WOULD YOU GO, WHAT WOULD YOU DO? I'd retire and share the money responsibly with my father, mother, nephew and niece. I'd buy a different house built to spec as a 3 story wooden Victorian. I might move to a more sensible country.

                        1. LIVING ARRANGEMENT? A mobile home right now . . . :( It's a nice one but still I hate the social stigmatism that comes with /those/ places. Cause its not true in my case.

                        2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? Tales of the White Wolf

                        3. WHAT'S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? An alternate movie poster for Transformers the Movie

                        4. FAVORITE BOARD GAME? Do not play boardgames

                        5. FAVORITE MAGAZINE? Don't really have a favorite.

                        6a. FAVORITE SMELLS? Jasmine, Wisteria, Vanilla, Musk, Drakorr Noir (sp)

                        6b. LEAST FAVORITE SMELLS? Sour milk

                        7. FAVORITE SOUND? There are many. The sound of a 440 4bbl in pristine street-stomping condition. I love the sound of my 351 2bbl Cleveland in my 74 Ranchero (will sound even better once I get through 'massaging' it) . . . the sound a G1Transformer transforming (cartoon from the 80s). Good music . . . nature sounds specifically water and ocean sounds. Chris Latta's voice (he was a much loved Voice Actor in the 80s)

                        8. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD? There are too many to chose from.

                        9. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING? I hope I didn't oversleep and how do I feel today.

                        10. FAVORITE COLOR? Black, purple and various shades of gray

                        11. HOW MANY RINGS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE PHONE? 2-3 . . /if/ I feel like picking it up

                        16. DO YOU LIKE TO DRIVE FAST? Yes . . . I'm considered a 'passively aggressive' driver. That is an actual term . . . I've also been told I was born with a 'steering wheel in my hand'. And to explain what a passively aggressive driver is:
                        I'm polite but assertive. I am rather fast and firm on the road but am courteous until . . . you pull a no-brainer and possibly endanger me . . . I put some distance between you and myself (and sometimes will let you know via my car how I feel about what you just did) in any way I see fit.

                        17. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL? I think I have like a dozen stuffed animals on my bed...and like 18 feather pillows, throw pillows, body pillows. Animal prints, usually cheetah print, or in black or purple fabric. My stuffed elephant, my stuffed Batman (Dark Knight version),and my big Walt Disney Tigger are the stuffed animals not buried by pillows.

                        19. WHAT TYPE WAS YOUR FIRST CAR? A 1968 Dodge Charger R/T. A real R/T not a coupe wanna be. By the numbers...one of the 7400 Chargers in a 92,000(est) production run total that came equipped with a 440/4bbl. one of the handful that came colored bright red (that was later known as Hemi Red) . . . and thankfully someone painted it black before I got it (Red is only good for holiday decorations and spilling blood . . . talk about opposite . . . I wonder if theres a hidden meaning in there?)

                        20. IF YOU COULD MEET ONE PERSON DEAD OR ALIVE WHO WOULD IT BE? Chris Latta (he died in 1994)

                        21. FAVORITE ALCOHOLIC DRINK? I dont really drink. But I do occasionally have a wine cooler

                        22. WHAT IS YOUR ZODIAC SIGN? Cancer (the moody variant) near the cusp of Leo. First house (main house of the 12...Im a bit fuzzy on that, its been a few years) in Aries

                        23. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS OF BROCCOLI? Depends on how they are cooked.

                        24. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB YOU WANTED WHAT WOULD IT BE? A writer, a voice actor. Perhaps a creative director for something or other of interest.

                        25. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR WHAT COLOR WOULD IT BE? White/blonde...kept it like that for 5 years.

                        27. IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL? Half empty

                        28. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE? mmmmm I dont watch movies much to be honest. A few that pop into mind would be Excaliber (...wonderful movie. Nigal Terry was in it. Thats the only name that comes to mind on who stared in it), The odd animated flick called 'Fire and Ice'. Its more intriguing then a 'favorite' (but that not saying I don't like it) and I do watch it from time to time. The first Heavy Metal movie. Transformers the Movie (1986)

                        29. DO YOU TYPE WITH YOUR FINGERS ON THE RIGHT KEYS? I type with my fingers in the proper position but sometimes my mind goes faster then my hands can keep up (or visa versa) and I can come up with some amazing typos/gibberish O_o . . . I try to catch them before I post but I dont always succeed. You have been warned :P

                        30. WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED? A chainmail shirt a dear late friend was completing for me. A completed chaimmail ..uhm..forgot what its called. It's the headpiece that goes on before you put you helm on. Some reptile books, some of my AD&D second edition stuff and some other misc. that I would have to get down and dig out to be sure. Mmm perhaps I need to clean under my bed . . .

                        31. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE NUMBER? 2 7 21 27

                        32. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH? Football and horse racing if I happen to catch it on TV. Also like to watch gymnastics.

                        33. IF YOU WON $10 MILLION, WOULD YOU SHARE? There are 8 people I would share some with and no one else.

                        34. WHERE WOULD YOU GO, WHAT WOULD YOU DO?Id go to Scotland. Not sure what I would do there . . .

                        35. IF YOU COULD PURCHASE ANY CAR YOU WANTED, WHAT WOULD IT BE? Either a Ford company produced, or one from the original show . . Starsky and Hutch Torino (this is something I've wanted for years so the new movie coming out has nothing to do with it. And for those that are not familier with what the 'Striped Tomato' is:

                        http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEAWA%3AIT

                        . . . Or a 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona with the Hemi. New car? mmmm Not much new inspires me . . . The Tiberon isnt bad but if money is no option I'd go for a Lamborghini. Or maybe restore my 72 Charger and my 74 Ranchero.
                        Ultra Magnus to Sandstorm. \"I\'ve never seen anything this beautiful in the entire galaxy. . . Alright, give me the bomb.\"

                            30. WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED? My son's old crib. It is precious to us.

I am a good mimic, so when I do learn a language (I speak German) I mimic the voice of the person who is teaching me. So I have a small vocabulary, but I speak it perfectly. I learned German with a Bavarian dialect (I learned in Wurzburg) and my wife if from Munster and they have a completely different dialect. Whenever I speak to her in German, she always goes, "Huuuuuh?" She's got that famous Northern arrogance towards Southerns. I know my pronounciation is dead on, because when I talk to Bavarians I get compliments! Go figure!

                            The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords
