Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question you dislike with a question of your own invention; add a question of your own.
Why do you blog?
I just like to keep a journal of things I think about. It’ll be interesting to come back to it over the years and see what sorts of things were on my mind. And, as for all bloggers, there’s a little bit of narcissism.
Do you nap a lot?
No, although I’ve considered taking up the habit.
Who was the last person you hugged?
Vanilla Bean on the way out the door. Imagine hugging an actual vanilla bean. Now imagine it 17.4 times sweeter. Then add a dollop of whipped cream on top. That’s what it’s like hugging MY Vanilla Bean.
If you were a tree, what tree would you be?
The kind that drops yucky sap on people when they walk by.
Have you ever had an altercation with the police?
Nope. I’m totally subject to the Man.
What was the last thing you bought?
Lunch at this AWESOME pizza place in town - La Candelara or something like that.
What are you listening to right now?
The guy in the cube next door discussing the weather. So I’ll probably crank up the Pandora soon. (UPDATE: I have since cranked up Pandora, set it to my movie-music station, and am listening to Jerry Goldsmith's score of The Medicine Man.)
What is your favorite weather?
Cold and rainy. Last Saturday was perfect. Except for the part where the car almost flooded.
What’s on your bedside table?
A clock-radio and a lamp. Oh, and a box with my laptop power adapter.
Say something to the person/s who tagged you.
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you want it to be?
That’s an easy one: Vancouver. I’m still not sure why I haven’t packed up and just moved there.
Favorite vacation spot?
A cruise boat anywhere.
Name the things you can’t live without:
My cell phone. The Internet. Ann’s homemade breakfast burritos. If they made an Internet-connected burrito with integrated cell phone, I’d buy one.
You should put these two things together, Science.
What would you like to have in your hands right now?
The case full of Star Wars action figures that my mom gave to some poor kid. To make up for it, I’d sell one of the action figures, give the money to the poor kid, and put the rest of them in a display case over my bed.
What is your favorite tea flavor?
Earl Grey. Hot. (Bonus points if you get the reference)
What would you like to get rid of?
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
That little sushi restaurant in Tokyo.
What did you want to become as a child?
Either a pilot or an astronaut. I figure I got pretty close.
What do you like better, e-mail or telephone calls?
Don’t waste my time making me listen to you on the phone. I can ignore you much more effectively by e-mail.
What do you do when you get time alone?
I have two small children - what is this “alone” you speak of?
