Ganked from [ profile] seawasp [profile] seawsp because it amuses me...

6. Do you like to dance?
Not especially.

7. Would you ever consider living abroad?
No, I don't think so. I'm content with my nation of birth. (Besides, there aren't a lot of nations in the world where you could move 3,000 miles from your birthplace without crossing a national border. I've moved far enough.

8. Last time you swam in a pool?
Years, probably.

I don't have a favorite hoodie.

Yes I do. Which is not to say that I don't have self-doubts or self-image issues, but underneath it all, I can't imagine wanting to be anyone else.

23. Would you go out to eat with George W. Bush?
Sure. I'm sure he's got interesting stories to tell. (I voted for him. Twice. I'd also go out to dinner with many people I've voted against--but not all of them. Some of them just make my skin crawl.)

24. What are you listening to right now?
"Color Splash" (some design show my wife is watching in the next room).

Yes, they were. But I haven't been subject to their authority for many, many years.

Uh...maybe? I've gone bungie jumping, and loved it. I'd do it again except that my lovely and talented wife has forbidden me to. She's also forbidden me to go skydiving--and I don't object much because I'm not sure I could really go through with it anyhow.

Hell no!

Maybe. But I'd never forget.

Nope. It's quite modest.

52. Do you like your life right now?
In some ways. In other ways...I'm really ready for the shitstorm of the last year or so to abate.

53. Do you sleep with the TV on?
No. But we do use a white noise machine (the sound of rain).

54. Can you handle the truth?
It depends on which truth. Sometimes denial is more comforting.

55. Do you have good vision?
Mostly. I need glasses, but only to make things sharp. I can see well enough without them to read, to use the computer, watch tv, or navigate on foot. I can even drive, but that's a bigger risk than I'd prefer to take.

56. Do you hate or dislike more than 3 people?
Dislike? yes. Hate? Maybe. But usually only briefly. They cycle through my queue pretty quickly (I don't hold grudges for long).

My wife.

59. What are you wearing?
White t-shirt from Poplar Grove, jeans, green fleece vest, socks and sneakers.

60.What is your favorite animal?
I can't say. I don't think in terms of my favorite ANYTHING. I like too many examples of movies, tv shows, songs, foods--or animals--to single one out.

61. Can you hula hoop?
I can. I choose not to.

62. Do you have a job?
Yes. Two, actually, if you count my writing.

This week's groceries (specifically, three pounds of stew meat).

Yes. A number of times (as a child, usually to unlock the door when we locked ourselves out of the house).

65. Have you ever lied to a police officer?
If I ever have, I'm sure as hell not gonna confess to it here. That's a crime, you know.

66. Do you shout at the TV?

67. Name one thing people give you funny looks for when you confess it.
I write (for sale) superhero erotica.

Meme picked up from from [ profile] steefvaniersel:

Pick your five favorite TV shows (in no particular order) and answer the following questions. Don't cheat!

I'm assuming current shows, those still in production--otherwise my list would be entirely different.

1. Burn Notice
2. True Blood
3. Saving Grace
4. Big Bang Theory
5. Mythbusters

And now that I've picked my shows, the questions are... )
sinanju: The Shadow (Default)
Gacked from Gryphonrhi on LiveJournal, who doesn't do OTPs ... Name 10 OTCs and ask people to see what trends they notice about your characters. Try to pick different fandoms*.

1. George Lass (Dead Like Me)
2. Michele Webster (Highlander)**
3. Benny Carbasa (Highlander)***
4. Chloe Sullivan (Smallville)
5. Ash Williams (Evil Dead)
6. Richie Ryan (Highlander)
7. Cordelia Chase (Buffy/Angel)
8. Xavier St. Cloud (Highlander)
9. Daisy Adair (Dead Like Me)
10. Amanda Darrieux (Highlander)

*Not that I'm writing any fanfic these days, but these are the characters I find most interesting in their respective fandoms. I haven't written in all that many fandoms, either, so my choices are limited.

**Michele Webster and Benny Carbasa each appeared in only one episode but I found them fascinating.
