38. Thanks--I am a total Luddite at heart, except when it comes to...
medical technology (because I believe in saving lives and in stopping pain whenever possible) and to an extent, communications technology. Although, I think if we went back to pre-industrialized small communities, I could probably get a job working for the town paper, lol, so maybe I wouldn't even really need that...

Last night I dreamed I designed and built a house of adobe and glass, then went shopping for things for it at an all night department store. At one point, I accidentally ran over some little boy with my shopping cart. His dad didn't get mad, but I felt terrible about it.

12. On the walls in this room are original plein air oil paintings by listed CA artist, Ruth M. Bennett, and some round brass picture trays.

74. I'll give it a try
1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18 and find line 4. Type it in...

They're all in storage, darn it...recently took all the rest to another place for a while, so all I can find is a Life tribute to Elvis:

"...Indian Love Call." But first they got Elvis. As soon as..."

2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can, what do you find?

A bottle of Vitamin E oil.

3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?

It's been a while. On television, as opposed to a DVD on my computer, that'd be a Disney Channel show...forget the title. I watched it with a little friend of mine.

4. Without looking, guess what time it is.

10:46 PM (it's actually 10:58....I'm amazed I got so close, given that I rarely even know what day it is)

5. Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?

I beat the clock on giving this answer.

6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?

A TV belonging to someone else.

7. When did you last step outside? What were you doing?

Yesterday. I was coming back from work. The very last time I walked outside, I was locking and covering my motorcycle. I'm going to walk a couple or four miles now, though, I think.

8. Before you started this survey, what did you look at?

The computer screen.

9. What are you wearing?

Blue underwear and a blue 'loungewear/sleepwear" set. Floppy clothes.

10. Did you dream last night?

Yes.

11. When did you last laugh?

A few minutes ago.

12. What is on the walls of the room you are in?

Lobby cards from '60s movies, a calendar, a montage of photographs, and a small Christmas stocking.

13. Seen anything weird lately?

I work as an Elvis in Las Vegas. I was on the street here for St Patrick's Day, when drunk, obnoxious people pretend to be Irish. Is this a trick question? :P

14. What do you think of this quiz?

I like it, but I can't dance to it.

15. What is the last film you saw?

Cold Mountain

16. If you turned into a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?

Travel, for myself. And probably a way cool entertainment system, a jacuzzi bath, a great bed, and a house to put it all in. Oh, and a car, dammit. And I'd get more and give more, too.

17. Tell me something about you that I don't know.

I'm very private.

18. If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt and politics, what would you do?

I could say "fix America," but the bigger picture is to "fix the biosphere," which pretty much entails somehow approaching overpopulation (or, at least, our collective ecological footprint and the war, famine, poverty, and other human suffering that directly and indirectly results), directly curing or beginning to amerliorate what ailments we have inflicted on our planet's natural systems, and changing the behavior of the worst offenders (USA! USA! USA!) first.

19. Do you like to Dance?

Not my inclination, but once you get me started, it's hard to stop me and get me off that dance floor. I haven't danced in many years now, I just realized (may well have still been the '80s when I did or, at least, the early '90s that still seem so recent to me), but I used to --talking about uptempo stuff here -- go for it like it was an aerobic workout, with every part of me moving (often in radically different directions) and being as over-the-top extrovert as I was under-the-counter introvert before I got dragged out on the dance floor. I can move well -- a legacy, perhaps, of lifelong outdoor activity that gave me a head start on balance, coordination, and sensitivity that Chinese martial arts took me through postgraduate levels of -- but I really have no idea whether my energetic flailings look absolutely insane or even halfway swave and deboner and, more to the point, I don't care either way when I'm in the throes of my Dancing Machine impassionings. He's a maniac...maniac...

I'd kinda like to learn salsa dancing, I think, and I think I'd love the Argentine tango.

20. What would you want God to say to you when you reach the pearly gates?

"Dude, you're not done yet. See ya later."

Either that or "James Lipton's got some questions for you."

Or maybe it's Will Ferrell.
