4. Well
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 12:58 PM by HypnoToad
1. Do you read other people's answers in random question threads?

Time permitting, yes. I often have the time.

2. Do you have any phobia's?
Open spaces, being alone, insects, abandonment, people, any Woody Allen movie made after "Annie Hall", eggs.

3. What's the most serious problem you have gotten over?
Debt. (Though it's not always getting over; it's a lifetime issue. Each day at a time.)

4. Do you ever go looking for long-lost friends on the internet? Any good stories?
Yes. But no. These days it's more fun to make new friends; the past is the past and I'm more interested in a better future.

5. If you'd been at work since 5:30 am and hadn't had anything to eat, would you feel guilty for taking a lunch break at 1:36, if you were behind in your work and short in your revenue goals?
No. One has to eat. Especially diabetics.

6. How much can one person do?
Depends on the person and the level of ambient comfort and security.

7. Does chocolate help?
Yes. Especially if they use splenda or cancer-causing aspartame instead of sugar.

8. How do you feel about "the art world?"
It should be THE world. For all to share and purchase. It'd make for a more sound economy... Art is a representation of the soul and each soul is unique. Moreso than a fingerprint. Though, as with all professions, some think that tying two twist-ties together makes a million dollar piece. No, it just makes a piece. It's about the soul. Anything that's textbook is as commonplace as an assembly line.

9. What are your plans for Halloween?
Well, I might whip out my costume from last year but I doubt I'll be going anywhere. Maybe the grocery store to buy some sushi and freak out the cashier by sounding like a Renaissance character...

10. Do you owe anyone anything?
Define 'owe'.

1. Do you read other people's answers in random question threads?

Depends on the length of the thread. Short thread - yes, long thread - no.

2. Do you have any phobia's?

I have a fear of unnecessary apostrophes. ;) Seriously, I'm not too wild about heights.

3. What's the most serious problem you have gotten over?

An engagement. I have no idea what I was thinking, but I got out of it.

4. Do you ever go looking for long-lost friends on the internet? Any good stories?

Yes, and no. Wrote to my first childhood crush, she never wrote back.

5. If you'd been at work since 5:30 am and hadn't had anything to eat, would you feel guilty for taking a lunch break at 1:36, if you were behind in your work and short in your revenue goals?

Not for a second. Starvation isn't part of my employee agreement.

6. How much can one person do?

As much as he is able.

7. Does chocolate help?

Doesn't help me.

8. How do you feel about "the art world?"

I'm not impressed. I've never met anyone in the art world who has the slightest bit of regard for the poor or could change a tire by himself. And since I'm not much of an art fan to begin with...

9. What are your plans for Halloween?

I'll go out to a restaurant and avoid the kids, as I do every year. Sorry, but I just don't have the tolerance to hear the doorbell ring 83 times in one evening over the course of 5+ hours.

10. Do you owe anyone anything?

Well, technically I owe the electric company for this month, I owe the cable company for this month, and I owe for this month's water bill. I don't owe anyone in the way you're asking, though.
