What's the story behind your LiveJournal username?</b>
My name is MegaZone, and that's my first choice for a username. But that was taken: megazone.
So my runner up is ZonerEyrie. Why? Zoner is one of my nicknames, and I'm one of the founders of Eyrie productions.
So, what'd you do today?
I worked all day. Which was, again, mostly reinstalling things on my laptop, and then installing new stuff for my current project and creating a ton of development accounts, etc. Plus some customer interactions.
What's the longest time you've stayed out of the country, and where?
Two months in the summer of 1994, in Europe. I was finishing my history degree. I stayed mainly just outside of Paris, but I travelled around a bit.
One thing you're grateful for, today:
What is your favorite high school memory?
Um... Geez. Weird, I'm trying to pull up something and drawing a blank.. Um, maybe the time I broke into the detention hall and stole my detention card so I didn't have to serve all the ones I'd racked up - and a tone of others to obfuscate the crime. Then I took them home and burned them. It was like running a caper. :-) Yeah, yeah, I know, stealing is wrong. There is a lot more backstory to the whole mess.
What is your worst high school memory?
I think it was when I was a frosh, I accidentally stepped on a ketchup packet in the hall and it exploded and splattered some upper classmen jock. He and his friends wailed on me a bit.
Describe your dream wedding:
My dream would be not being married. ;-) If it ever happens - small, informal, with friends. No goddamned church, no tux, no extended families, etc.
Read any good books lately?
Does size matter?
It depends on what you're doing and the size of what. Since I'm 6'6" much of the world is too small for me - so yeah, it matters.
Is 15 minutes enough?
It depends on your desire and intentions.
Worst fashion trend:
Fashion? What's that? I don't notice silly trends.
The school picture you buried in your bottom drawer?
I don't think i have any old school pictures.
Do you have any weird fetishes?
Nothing I consider weird. :-)
What is the one thing you will never understand about the opposite sex?
Why any of them find me attractive.
Who is your best friend?
Who is your boyfriend?
I don't have one. I'm het so far, so it seems unlikely. I don't have a girfriend at this time either.
Four things you're doing right now:
Watch Robot Wars, sitting on the couch, filling in this survey, thinking about work tomorrow
Give yourself a porn star name:
Do you have any weird sleeping habits?
You mean other than having no body clock and either being unable to sleep or being unable to wake up when I need to?
What do you plan to do this summer?
Work. Probably go to AX like usual - though I'm considering not going this year and maybe taking a trip somewhere else instead - like London or Sydney.
What is your favorite song right now?
Right now? I have Sting's Desert Rose in my head, and I do really like it. I SUCK with names - I really like a lot of the tracks on the new Sarah McLachlan CD, but I couldn't name them. So just pick one. :-)
Write a line from any song.
Gotta get in tune with Sailor Moon 'cause that cartoon has got the boom anime babes that make me think the wrong thing.
Do you know at least one Disney song by heart? Which one?
Nope. Maybe if I heard the music to something it'd come back.
Your typical sleepwear.
T-shirt and sweatpants.
What's in your wallet?
No Capital One No Hassle card!
Actually my new wallet is *bigger* than my old one, but designed such that it holds *less*. (I wonder if any gweeps that I know could sew me a copy of my old one, I liked it so much better.)
Anyway - cash, RFID card for work, alarm company card for work, comic shop business card, portable discordian temple card, LoJack card for my car. Dining cards for the Shoe, Boston Market, Ground Roud, Subway and Victoria Station. ATM card. Driver's license. three credit cards. Suncoast Replay card, AMV Movie Watcher card, Waldenbooks discount card, Blue Choice insurance card, UMassMemorial patient card, DeltaPremier dental card. AAA card and bail bond, insurance card, Hallmark discount card, American Airlines FF card, Schwa Corporation Planet Operator card, Boston MOS membership card.
I used ot carry a LOT more membership cards in my old wallet - they're in my checkbook pouch now.
How much money do you have in your wallet right now?
What is your favorite pair of shoes?
My Timberland boots - still looking for a new pair.
If you could've gone to your senior prom in a different outfit, what would it be?
I didn't go, and I still wouldn't.
Do you have naked pictures of ex-girlfriends?
No - unfortunately. There are some I'd really like to have some of.
Does anyone have naked pictures of you?
Not to my knowledge.
What's your favorite soda?
It seems to vary. I was a Mountain Dew fiend for a long time. Then I was really into Wild Cherry Pepsi. Now it seems to be Pepsi Vanilla.
What are the first five things you would splurge on if you were a billionaire?
1. Pay off all my debts.
2. Have a dream home built for me - actually probably more like a geek compound for me with places for friends to live. I'll consider all the computers, A/V gear, etc, as part of furnishing the house.
3. Private jet and the training to fly it myself. I wonder if it is possible for as private citizen to buy a modern Russian fighter? (I know you can't buy a US one.)
4. Lots of travel! Extended trips to the UK, Australia, etc. Maybe even homes around the world to stay in.
5. A lot of it would go to charities, probably some venture capital work, and maybe some endowments and the like.
