01) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
I think Marriage counts, yes.

02) What was your dream growing up?
To be able to punch the bullies at my elementary school through a wall, literally, like Superman.

03) What talent do you wish you had?
Networking. It's not enough to be good at one's craft, it also seems to be about who you know, and the favors you can do for each other that in turn leads to getting better jobs and whatnot. I still struggle with this, partly because I feel like I'm exploiting people when I try to network.

04) If I bought you a drink what would it be?
If I was allowing myself alcholhol that night because I wasn't driving or had to be up early, then a fuzzy navel or similarly sweet cocktail. Otherwise, a mountain dew.

05) Favorite vegetable?
Three way tie between carrots, celery, and green beans.

06) What was the last book you read?
SOON I WILL BE INVINCIBLE, by Austin Grossman

07) What zodiac sign are you?
Taurus

08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where.
None of either. I'm horribly whitebread, and I haven't yet found an image or whatnot that I want on my body permanently.

09) Worst Habit?
Off the top of my head -- I wait too long to get haircuts, so by the time I DO go into a cuttery, my hair looks like a wild shrubbery.

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
Absolutely!

11) What is your favorite sport?
In high school gym, it was Volleyball. Now? Not sure. I've never been very sports-oriented anyway.

12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude?
Mostly optimistic.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
Get comfortable and chat about anything and everything.

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?
I passed up a chance to become an intern on THIS AMERICAN LIFE in the late 90's because I was afraid I'd have no way to pay the rent while doing this (since interns don't get paid). This still haunts me from time to time, since doing broadcast radio would probably suit my talents very well.

15) Tell me one weird fact about you.
My singing voice has a very, very low range, to the point that my college choir director would occasionally test how low I could go during group warmups. I apparently scared the hell out of our entire population of sopranos when I hit a low C two octaves below the bass clef.

16) Do you have any pets?
Not currently.

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly?
Gretchen would undoubtedly freak out and ask that you wait outside with me while she straightens up the place, but I'd be cool with it.

18) What was your first impression of me?
You were VERY helpful, and more tolerant of me than I felt I deserved at the time -- I felt like a spastic fanboy trying not to explode at the sheer Awesome of your store.

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
I like clowns myself, but I can completely understand why they'd freak people out.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
Lose a LOT of weight.

21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
Your conscience.

22) What color eyes do you have?
Hazel.

23) Ever been arrested?
Nope.

24) Bottle or can soda?
Both!

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?
Pay off loans, and sock the rest away in a CD towards a house.

27) What's your favorite place to hang out at?
Right now, my apartment. We just moved.

28) Do you believe in ghosts?
I'd like to. Never seen one.

29) Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
Video games, reading, and writing.

30) Do you swear a lot?
Fuck yeah! But I can moderate it.

31) Biggest pet peeve?
Deliberate rudeness.

32) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
Friendly

33) Do you believe/appreciate romance?
YES.

34) Favourite and least favourite food?
Least favourite - raw tomato.
Favourite - my homemade pizza

35) Do you believe in God?
I do believe that there's more to this world than we know, and that there is some sort of higher power in place. But I don't believe that it's an "Old Man In The Sky" that we can talk to.

36) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?
I think we've already done this for each other at this point. :)
