1. WHAT COLOR ARE YOUR KITCHEN PLATES? White with black or dark green borders.

2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? Book, singular? What a novel concept. Currently I'm reading Gödel, Escher, Bach: an Eternal Golden Braid by Douglas R. Hofstadter, The Citadel of the Autarch (book four of The Book of the New Sun series) by Gene Wolfe, and Time Snake and Superclown by Vincent King.

3. WHAT'S ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? Don't have one.

4. FAVORITE BOARD GAME? Either HeroQuest, Settlers of Catan, chess, Talisman, or Tai Pan.

5. FAVORITE MAGAZINES? MacClean's, Computer Games Magazine

6. FAVROURITE SMELL? rugosa bush roses

7. LEAST FAVORITE SMELL? liver or cheap ground beef cooking


9. FAVORITE COLOR? Green. More ephemerally (as I once described it), "the colour of sunlight filtering through new leaves."

10. LEAST FAVORITE COLOR? That brown-purple colour you get when you thoroughly mix all the finger paints together.

11. HOW MANY RINGS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE PHONE? One, sometimes half. Also, depends on what I'm doing -- sometimes I just let it ring.

12. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME? A little early to be imposing roles on it, don't you think?

13. WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT IN LIFE? Living and learning.

14. CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA? Yes. English really needs a word that means XOR.

15. DO YOU LIKE TO DRIVE FAST? Do I drive fast or do I enjoy driving fast? Yes, driving fast is enjoyable. I tend to not driver overly fast.

16. DO YOU FALL ASLEEP WITH THE TV ON? Not since I was 14. I haven't habitually watched TV since 1998, either.

17. STORMS - COOL OR SCARY? Here in BC? Boring. Now, a storm in Ontario... those are cool. I've never seen a Prairie storm, but I hear tell that they're even better.

18. WHAT TYPE WAS YOUR FIRST CAR? An '88 Plymouth Reliant, five-speed. Learned to drive standard on it and subsequently burned out the clutch.

19. IF YOU COULD MEET ONE PERSON DEAD OR ALIVE WHO WOULD IT BE? Me! Okay, that's just me being paradoxically silly. Um... I can't really think of anyone; I don't really idolise anybody. Tolkien, maybe.

20. FAVORITE ALCOHOLIC DRINK? Hmm... Gin and tonic, gin and cheap neon-orange orange pop, or a bloody ceasar (made with Clamato, you tomato-juice heathens!)

21. WHAT IS YOUR SIGN & YOUR BIRTHDAY? Gemini, and June 18th (I had a good birthday-week, thank you.)

22. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS OF BROCCOLI? Uh... yeah. There are people who don't? Seriously, the possibility of people eating just the florets and not the stems of broccoli never occurred to me. Frankly, I like the taste of the stems better.

23. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY JOB WHAT WOULD IT BE? Head Harem Boy. Co-ed harem, of course. Either that, or Independently Wealthy and Retired Young. Failing that, a computer consultant of some sort.

24. IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY COLOR HAIR, WHAT WOULD IT BE? Flaming coppery-red that could change between that and my usual colour by act of will.

25. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE? Yes, multiple times.

26. IS THE GLASS HALF FULL OR HALF EMPTY? I'll just cut to the chase and say that I'm a relentless optimist. if (glassFill = 0.5 || glassFill = 0.5) { assert("By definition, eh?") }; English definitely needs an exclusive OR word.

27. FAVORITE MOVIE? Rocky Horror Picture Show, but the runners-up are close and large in number.

28. DO YOU TYPE WITH YOUR FINGERS ON THE RIGHT KEYS? Of course. You can't get anywhere near 80 WPM with your fingers wandering all over the keyboard, let alone faster. Also, speed improves spelling because u can rite & spel fast enuf.

29. WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED? Dust bunnies, and they're breeding.


31. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH? Cooking. That's my answer and I'm sticking with it.

32. WHAT IS YOUR SINGLE BIGGEST FEAR? The extinguishing of the self; oblivion.

33. SAY ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU? Dunno him; got this off of a shannara-friends mailing list.

34. PERSON MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND? Why is this considered an interesting question? Yeah, I'm feeling a bit silly and contrary tonight.


36. FAVORITE CD? Spacehog - Spacehog, They Might Be Giants - Apollo 18, Paul Simon - Graceland, Enio Morricone - The Missio, John Gilliat - Freedom, Aquabats - The Fury of the Aquabats!, Laio - Luneda, The Arrogant Worms - Live Bait. Okay, that should be enough.

37. FAVORITE TV SHOWS? Again, I haven't watched TV since the late nineties. Likely Red Dwarf or Mystery Science Theater 3000.

38. KETCHUP OR MUSTARD? On what? Ketchup: macaroni & cheese a la boite, shepherd's pie. Mustard: Christmas ham, cheese sandwiches.

39. HAMBURGERS OR HOTDOGS? Yes, thank you. Go light on the barbeque sauce, though.

40. FAVORITE SOFT DRINK? Cheap President's Choice jamaican ginger beer (it's not good unless it makes one sneeze every second sip); A&W Root Beer.

41. THE BEST PLACES YOU HAVE EVER BEEN? Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Islands, Queensland, Australia. Also Thetis Island, BC, Canada.

42. WHAT SCREEN SAVER IS ON YOUR COMPUTER RIGHT NOW? xscreensaver. My favourite hacks for xscreensaver are probably Gears, Flow, Kumppa, Pulsar, Phosphor, GFlux, WhirlWindWarp, NerveRot, Fluidballs, Euler2D, Flipscreen3D, RotZoomer, and Molecule. Ooo! Hey, there are some new OpenGL hacks that I haven't got yet... Time to upgrade.

43.BURGER KING OR MCDONALDS? They are both deserving of conflagrations.

Oooo, you've made it to the *last* book in the new sun series. That one was definitely the best. It made reading the others (which are deliberately mysterious) worthwhile.
