1. semi-answer
My vehicle is red. My favorite game is Ultimate Frisbee, even though I retired long ago. I have two dogs. The most interesting place I've ever been was Devil's Corkscrew. I like to spend time off and relaxing by going on long bike rides. Lynyrd Skynyrd, not asked but what I'm listening to right now. The other questions would either require too much thought or are none of your damned business.

2. Gosh, I'm sorry
I should have realized asking what a person's favorite season is was highly intrusive. And requires a great deal of thought.

10. no apology needed
It requires thought because all seasons have their charms and I can't decide which one I like the most right now. I like sledding in the Winter. I like being able to go hiking for extended periods of time in the Spring without overheating. I like canoeing in the Summer. I like watching football in the Fall. So the question really does require thought.

9. Okay, here goes:
1. A friend of mine who sang a beautiful song at my wedding.

2. I'm a Medical Assistant and phlebotomist. I like helping people with their little aches and pains.

3. I don't like hypochondriacs, malingerers, Munchausen Syndrome people, time-wasters and determined "you-can't cure-what-I'VE-got" know-it-alls.

4. Read a good book and listen to some Mozart.

5. Spring, when it's sunny outside but still cool enough to be pleasant. Same goes for early Autumn.

6. Hanging on DU, or reading a good book (see above) or just curled up with my wife, watching some TV or a good movie.

7. None. She hates dogs, I hate cats, and that's that.

8. "Jeopardy!"

9. Steel Blue. I like Chrysler's darker navy blue better, but they named it "Patriot Blue". I'm so sick of faux-patriotic, flag-flailing bullshit that I went for another color.

10. Either Scotland or Ireland. Beautiful dark green landscapes. Nobody seems to be in a rush to cut down all that greenery and pave it over for luxury condos. Plus, the Scots and the Irish could teach us a thing or two about expressions of patriotism; although their head-lopping days are behind them, they are very patriotic and proud of their countries. It's just that they tend to be (outside of football matches) quiet and understated about love of country.

11. OK
1. Not counting immediate family members and significant others, who is your favorite person in the world?

I don't typically like putting people on pedestals, but Richard Dawkins comes close. Carl Sagan would be the one most likely to make me reconsider hero worship if he were still with us.


2. What do you like most about your job?

Not having a job makes this a difficult question. I am doing occaisional indie computer work for people and I do quite like helping people.

3. What do you like least about it?

See above, the not having is probably the key.

4. When you really, really need to relax, what do you do?

Kill pixels. Watch anime. Read a book. Think. Depending on what mode my mind is in.

5. What's your favorite season?

Difficult to say. I don't like the extremes of winter and summer. But migranes and allergies give me problems during the changing seasons. I guess I am partial to fall.

6. How do you like to spend your time off?

Aside from the above mentioned relaxing activities. We go to Stratford for the Shakespeare festival. Travelling and exploring are the keys really.

7. How many pets do you have?

1.5 hamsters, 8-9 fish, 2 puffers (they don't think they are fish), and one snail.

8. What's your favorite game?

Baldurs Gate II. Really its more of a genre. I favor RPGs and Tactical games.

9. What color is your vehicle?

Midnight blue.

10. Where is the most interesting place you've ever been?

4 I keep track of as far as notability. Each of them have a great deal of meaning to me.

Japan: I love studying culture and society. And Japan is about as interesting as you can get in those fields.

The top of Mt Sneffels. I used to do some mountain climbing. Looking down over things from the top of a mountain gives one a different perspective. I will never forget it.

The banks of the river Avon in Stratford Ontario. Perhaps it was a moment. But the setting, the cherry blossoms falling, the swans, the couples rowing downstream, it all came together to be a perfect moment.

Baltimore Harbor. Sitting on the dock and looking out at the breadth of history. Wooden ships along side modern vessels. The city in the background. Choked me up for a while.

Ok, here goes....


1. Not counting immediate family members and significant others, who is your favorite person in the world?

Today, John Varley. He writes brilliantly.

2. What do you like most about your job?

That when I'm doing it I'm totally obsessed. Nothing else exists and nothing is so important.

3. What do you like least about it?

Take a hot bath, take a toke, take a hot guy..... hopefully all at the same time.

5. What's your favorite season?

Autumn.

6. How do you like to spend your time off?

Reading, usually.

7. How many pets do you have?

None at the moment, my cat died.

Travellers, D&D, Champions, Illuminatus.... RPGs in general.

9. What color is your vehicle?

10. Where is the most interesting place you've ever been?

I'd have to say that Bangkok and Hong Kong were the most interesting to me. Oman was a pretty close runner up. I'd like to go back to India and spend more time there. One night in Calcutta wasn't enough.


Do I get a lollipop, now?

30. I'd love to
Love the culture, love the food, love the people.... I have many Indian friends.

Maybe it's a little racist to say it.... But the people I've met in this life who were the most decent, kind, worthwhile people were either Indian or Nigerian. That's just true.

There are no women more beautiful than Indian women. (And I have a major thang for Kurdish and Pakistani men, but I'll skip touring Pakistan for the time being.)
