Kakhis, a brilliant orange T-shirt and a dark blue hoodie.

13. Once again?
1. flannel.

2. neither.

3. She's a cranky bitch. Way too hurt by life. What makes her special is her ability to look beyond what I represent to her and see, and care about me, and allow me to know her, and enjoy the humor of our shared experiences, and similar outlooks on life.

28. I always read the answers
why else ask the questions?
Some of them are silly, some profound. But all fascinating...

The people you think you know well - you see new sides to them and appreciate them more
The people you barely know - show you parts of themselves that make you see a kindred spirit and make you want to know them better.

Not a bad pay off for what is essentially just a little bit of fun....

1. Sweater, ratty-ass jeans, socks.

2. Wrestling, especially when it's regional and takes place in a VFW hall.

3. I don't have a best friend but I have a super-tight group of friends and this is why they rule: They're smart, beautiful, stylish, hilarious, adventurous lunatics, who know how to throw down or call people out when it's needed. And they randomly send me messages at 3 am that say "OMG. Turn on the TV! Mrs. Doubtfire is on!" Plus, when I had a sleepover/going away party for one of them they brought Teen Beat magazines over and secretly stashed Britney posters all over my house that I kept finding for months after the fact. They frickin' rule.

4. Novel: Middlesex by Jeffery Eugenides, but ask me tomorrow and it will be something else. Non-fiction: The Problem of the Media by Robert McChesney.

5. For all intents and purposes, my house, but really the answer is nowhere, yet.

6. A Hard Rain's A Gonna Fall

7. Sig. Other and more or less. More happy than not.

8. San Francisco, always.

9. Not a word but a name for no reason other than I like how it sounds: Saint Thomas Aquinas

10. As happy as I can be given the circumstances.

33. why not...
1) grey pj pants and a men's white undershirt

2) opera

3) my best friend is very flighty, but at the same time, very dependable. i love this girl because i can call her up any time and she will be there for me. we had a horrible falling out in high school and got back together again a year ago like it hadn't been a day. so many of my best memories include us coming home from the club, eating taco bell, the radio cranked up

4) the 'his dark materials' trilogy by philip pullman, it really tweaked my sense of reality

5) my sense of home depends on the definition. the home of my heart will always be nyc, i always feel so alive there and always look forward to going back. but home, in the sense of where i'm talking about when i say i'm going home is my father's house, the house i grew up in. even though i have my own place (in the same town), my dad's house is home

6) it depends on my mood. sometimes it's 'jupiter crash' by the cure, it's so calming and feels like home; sometimes it's 'salt lake city' by the dwarves because it shows there are some things you won't do, even for love; sometimes it's 'olympia, wa.' by rancid because of the personal connotation

7) i'm in a new relationship, only three weeks old, but i'm happy. he's the first guy i've been with that i can have an intelligent conversation or debate with. we share a lot in common and it's perhaps the most open relationship i've ever in that we've already done a good bit of the 'bullshit/baggage swap'

8) again, depends on my mood (i can be very fickle). sometimes it's a bustling city, chock full of things to do, things to see; other times it's somewhere quiet, where i can read and write and just be by myself; still others, it's a nice beach with drinks that have umbrellas in them

9) formicate: having the sensation that there are bugs on you when there are not; or fustigate: the act of beating something with a stick

10) generally speaking, happy.

Purple scrub pants and a pink Eeyore shirt

2. Opera or wrestling?
Opera

3. What is your best friend like? What is it that makes them special to you?
My best friend has changed kind of. There's my old best friend for years that I liked because she thought for herself the way I do, but she moved far away about 2 & 1/2 years ago, so things have changed a lot. It's hard to say who my new best friend is. I'd say my SO is, in fact my best friend now. We work well together and we think the same.

4. What book would you recommend?
anything by John Irving

5. Where do you consider to be home?
wherever I live

6. Favourite song - the one that really gets to you?
Depends on my mood which is ever-changing. Current favorite seems to be Extraordinary by Liz Phair (I play it a lot anyway).

7.Are you married, partnered, in a significant relationship and does it make you happy?
Partnered in an increasingly significant relationship. It makes me more happy than I knew possible. He's a beautiful, giving soul.

8. Where do you want to go on vacation?
Someplace warm (but not Disney ;) )

9.Favourite word?
Love

10. Happy? Unhappy? Undecided? Generally speaking....
Happy

37. because you asked nicely:
1. PJs

We are "pinky-pals" for life and the honor is all mine.
4. The Happy Heretic by Judith Hayes is but one of many.
5. This planet, but specifically Tacoma Washington.
6. "Heart Of The Sunrise" by Yes, is but one of many again.
7. Single, this is why I am happy.
8. I am permanently on vacation, but Vancouver B.C. is a nice place to visit.
9. Ouagadougou

40. If you insist.
1. What are you wearing? Do you want the entire list? Starting at the feet - v.light brown cotton socks, sandy coloured cotton trousers, black cotton boxer shorts, blue and white cotton shirt, yellow and blue silk tie, light fawn cotton jumper - and a big smile in your honour.

2. Opera or wrestling? Opera I fear - preferably baroque, Wagner or Britten. Though watching wrestling can definitely be fun - Thai boxing is even better though.

3. What is your best friend like? What is it that makes them special to you? I don't have one, and they are somewhat different people.

4. What book would you recommend? The Politics by Aristotle.

5. Where do you consider to be home? South Buckinghamshire - though to a certain extent anywhere in the English countryside.

6. Favourite song - the one that really gets to you? I don't know if one would count it as a song technically - it's a liturgical setting of a Psalm - Miserere Mei (Ps. 50 (51)) by Allegri. To be sung at Tenebrae during Holy Week - musically very simple plainchant verses alternating with a couple of different faux-bourdons; but utterly transcendant in its simplicity.

7.Are you married, partnered, in a significant relationship and does it make you happy? Single, being in a relationship could be good, but it would have to be the right person - I am a complete and utter bastard to try and live with, very few people could cope with me.

8. Where do you want to go on vacation? Florence, or indeed any other part of Italy (though I gather that Houston has certain attractions which I would like to see).

9.Favourite word? At the moment discombubulate - don't ask me why.

10. Happy? Unhappy? Undecided? Generally speaking.... Happy.
