Yes, yes, slow day today! 

1. The phone rings. Who do you want it to be?
Someone with money.

2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart? 
Usually, yes. 

3. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener?
In large groups I never talk, in smaller groups with close friends I’m about 50/50. I’m definitely more a listener overall.

4. Do you take compliments well?
Yes and no. I take them well and can say thank you, but I’m generally bothered by compliments because they’re often social niceties or manipulative in nature.

5. Are you an active person?
Probably not. I can be happy doing something or not doing something.

6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, would you survive?
Certainly, provided I get some training first.

7. Do you like to ride horses?
Not sure if I’ve ever ridden one. Might have in England.

8. Did you ever go to camp as a kid?
Yes, sent to youth group camps as a kid. Had a great time, but they wouldn’t want me there now. Mwahaha.

9. What was your favorite game as a kid?
Depends on the age.

10. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew he/she was married, would you get involved with him/her?
Depends how I felt at the time. Once you fall for someone, questions like this don’t mean squat.

11. Are you judgmental?
Who isn’t? Such a question seems to come from deeply seated Christian values that imply judging someone is a bad thing. We judge people and situations all the time, it’s how we get by.

12. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you?
Depends on how esoteric or exoteric the given religious beliefs are. I could never date a legalist or literalist member of any religion.

13. Do you like to pursue or be pursued?
Being pursued is a lot easier.

14. Can you speak another language?

15. If you had to choose, would you rather be deaf or blind?
I’m already half blind (in one eye). I think it would be harder to be blind in general, but I’d probably go mad without music.

16. What’s your favorite food?
Scallops. Chocolate.

17. Do you know how to shoot a gun?
I know how to shoot one, I’m a little rougher on the aiming.

18. If your house was on fire, what would be the first thing you grabbed?
My coat.

As often as I bloody well can. I carry at least one book everywhere.

20. Do you think more about the past, present or future?
The present.

68. If you could have any job (assuming you have the skills) what would it be?


69. Are you easy to get along with?
I get along easily with people who are easy to get along with. People who feel some sort of proprietal interest in how I spend my time or who won’t give me space often find me frustrating to deal with. I’m OK with that.

When I’m not working the next day, late nightish.
