01) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
— I'm pretty sure you already know the answer to that one.

02) What was your dream growing up?
— Like many others, I wanted to be an astronaut. I still think I could have made a damned good one.

03) What talent do you wish you had?
— What talent don't I wish I had?
Oh, you wanted something specific? Um. Honestly I don't know what single thing I'd pick out. As long as it was something I could make a living again doing.

04) If I bought you a drink what would it be?
— Search me, I don't know. But if asked, I'd probably suggest either hot sake or a single-malt Scotch I haven't tried yet. Maybe Bunnahabhain.

05) Favorite vegetable?
— George Bush! No, seriously, ummmmm....... hard to say. Are we counting just "side dish" vegetables or "ingredient" vegetables too? For example, does garlic count? And are we counting, say, tomatoes as a vegetable?

06) What was the last book you read?
— Diane Duane, Wizard's Dilemma, as it happens.

07) What zodiac sign are you?
— Leo. Not that I think astrology is anything more than fluff and tomfoolery.

08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where.
— None. A good collection of scars though.

09) Worst Habit?
— Dammifino.

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
— If I recognized you in time, sure.

11) What is your favorite sport?
— I'd probably have to say motorcycle racing. Specifically, MotoGP.

12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude?
— I think I'm a pragmatic realist, on the whole.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
— Probably start brainstorming ideas as to how we could fix (or escape) the elevator.

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?
— That's an essay question. Let's just capsule-summarize it as "I got my mind roto-tilled by a psychology Ph.D student with delusions of competence and infallibility."

15) Tell me one weird fact about you.
— Uh...... OK, try this one: I have sword scars on my forearms.

16) Do you have any pets?
— Two cats, Houdini and Shadow. They're brothers.

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly?
— Are you staying for supper? :)

18) What was your first impression of me?
— On the ball. A live one.

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
— Depends on the clown.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
— Get rid of my sebacious dermatitis, most likely.

21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
— Depends what crime you're contemplating.

22) What color eyes do you have?
— My drivers' license says hazel. English country folk would call them witch eyes.

23) Ever been arrested?
— Nope.

24) Bottle or can soda?
— Pass, thanks. I seldom drink soda.

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?
— Hmm. Probably the best use of it would be to pay off our car loan and credit card.

27) What's your favorite place to hang out at?
— I'm not sure I can really meaningfully answer that right now, since about the only place I really "hang out" recently is at home. There used to be a really cool coffeehouse in San Jose, but it had long since gone even the last time I was there, and that was years ago.

28) Do you believe in ghosts?
— Not as such.

29) Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
— Right now? Well, I've been playing EVE Online a fair bit. I like it; it's complex enough to make me think.

30) Do you swear a lot?
— Like a trooper, when stressed or frustrated. Such as, for instance, by having to split this response because of LiveJournal's goddamned arbitrary 4300-character comment limit. Come on, people, get a frelling clue ... if you have a variable-length record, you don't need such a stupidly low limit, and if you have a fixed-length comment record, you're probably wasting better than 90% of every damn record. And if you've just GOT to have a damned hard-coded limit, you could at least provide a bloody counter to warn people when they're approaching it.

(See followup for the remaining six answers.)

Continued

31) Biggest pet peeve?
— Uh ... that's a toughie. Politics is beyond the level of "pet peeve".
How about phone txtspk? Cthulhu in a merrywidow, people, SPEAK ENGLISH if you want to be understood.

32) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
— I wouldn't. No single-word description can possibly fail to be misleading.

33) Do you believe/appreciate romance?
— Yes, and yes, though I'm not always very good at it.

34) Favorite and least favorite food?
— Both tough. Let me pick two more or less out of the air: Sushi is good. Boiled swede is revolting.

35) Do you believe in God?
— Why should I? I see no evidence any god believes in me.

36) Will you re post this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?
— I'm unlikely to. It's not my kind of meme, and some of the questions are ones I wouldn't ask. (I don't figure anyone else's religious beliefs or lack thereof are any business of mine, for example.) But I might.
