What time is it?
What color are your kitchen plates?
Mainly white which a kind of green nature pattern around the edges. I also have these cool blue, rust, etc, swirl color heavy stoneware plates I picked up from a potter in Berkeley when I lived there. But a could of them have hairline fractures. Almost invisible, but liquid will seep through the plate.
What are you reading now?
Programming PHP from O'Reilly
What's on your mouse pad?
I don't have a mouse pad. My laptop has a touchpad, and for desktops I use a Logitech Trackman+ Marble trackball.
Favorite board game?
I don't play board games that often. I suppose Monopoly, or maybe Risk.
Ooh, that's a hard one. I love a lot of different scents. I think perhaps lilac.
Least favorite smell?
Decaying flesh. Really. Like having a mouse die somewhere and then smelling that. Or having someone leave some kind of meat out that rots, etc.
The first thing you think of when you wake up in morning?
Generally incoherent. If my alarm is going off then my lizard brain is thinking "STOP THE NOISE!" But I generally lay around for a while hitting snooze thinking completely nonsensical thoughts - basically waking dreams - until my brain boots up and I realize I have things to do.
Red and/or Black.
Least Favorite color?
I don't think I have one. There are a lot of 'designer' colors that I think look lousy.
How many rings before you answer the phone?
It depends on how close I am to the phone, of course. I check Caller ID before answering. If I don't recognize the ID I generally allow my machine to answer it (after 3 rings). If I it is someone I know, then I'll pick up. If I'm in the middle of something (cooking, etc) I'll just let the machine get it. I don't feel the need to obey a ringing phone, if I'm busy then I'm not available.
Future child's name?
No idea. At this time I don't intend to have children, so I haven't considered it at all. If I ever decide to have children, then it will be worth consideration.
What is most important?
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Chocolate. Especially dark chocolate.
Do you like to drive fast?
Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?
Storms cool or scary?
Cool. Especially major thunderstorms - those are very cool.
What type was your first car?
The first car that was mine, not just the families, was a red 1989 Dodge Daytona ES Turbo.
If you could meet one person dead or alive who would it be?
I never know what to say to this question. Just meeting someone isn't a huge deal. And who knows who would really be interesting to chat with. I'd like to chat with Timothy Leary again, that was cool.
Favorite alcoholic drink?
Single Malt Scotch. Aside from that, Guinness.
What is your sign?
Do you eat the stems of Broccoli?
If you could have any job what would it be?
Something geeky. Ideally I wouldn't have to worry about money, but I'd be able to spend all my time working on cool projects.
If you could have any color hair and style what would it?
Probably long jet black hair with a fair bit of body. (As opposed to my dark brown hair which is exceedingly fine.) Or perhaps just shaved - hey, that's how I wear it now. :-)
Is the glass half full or half empty?
It is twice as large as it needs to be.
MU. I don't have 'a' favorite. There are many different films I love - The Hunt for Red October, Schindler's List, The Crow...
Do you type with your fingers on the right keys?
Favorite sport to watch?
Eh.. F1, or perhaps NASCAR.
What is your single biggest fear?
I've covered this in more detail in the past - dying of a withering disease like Alzheimer's, losing my brain/mind.
Say one nice thing about the person who sent this to you.
I can only say one nice thing about impykins? She's a lot of fun and sweet to chat with.
Person most likely to respond?
Um - lizzielizzie? Heh, I really don't know.
Person you sent this to who is least likely to respond?
z_gryphon - he's not into the whole Q&A thing.
Ani DiFranco, Pink Floyd, NIN, Red Hot Chili Peppers, um, ah... Crap, I like a lot of music.
Favorite TV Show?
Probably The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Then perhaps Stargate: SG-1
Ketchup or mustard?
Both. If I have to pick one - ketchup on burgers, mustard on dogs.
Hamburgers or hot dogs?
Favorite soft drink?
It changes. Currenty that orange Mountain Dew, whatever they call it. I also really like Wild Cherry Pepsi.
Favorite place you have been?
I really liked my trip to London. I must go back. Ditto for Sydney. But of any one specific place, probably the day I spent in La Rochelle, France.
What Screen Saver is on your computer right now?
None - well, unless 'turn off the screen' counts.
Burger King or MC Donald's?
Of the two? McDonald's - I like their fries better.
What time is it?
3Am Eternal! Um, no, 20:15
