What is the most frightening
thing you've ever done? Opened a safe with a gun pointed
at the back of my head.
your accomplishments are you the most happy with? Three
way tie: The job I've done raising my kids. Some of the artwork I've
done. Making a program for my older daughter that wound up on the net
and being used by people who teach adult education courses.
your first word? Chocolate Milk.
languages do you speak? Three. English, Spanish (rusty)
and Japanese (rustier). I work on Russian in my spare time, but I don't
have much these days.
your favorite time of year, and why? I love the summer.
I don't care how hot it gets, but I HATE the cold.
your most prized physical possession? My tablet PC.
could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I'd actually exercise when I say I'm going to. :)
have any embarassing nicknames as a kid? Peanut – That's
from my mom. Dream – It's one thing when people call you that on a MUD,
it's another when someone calls you that in a restaurant.
your favorite toy as a child? White typewriter paper.
you cry? Genius.
your favorite section of the newspaper? Comics.
have a useless talent that no one else that you know can do?
I can make the sound of a drop of water by tapping the side of my cheek.
could pick any other time period to live in, which would it be, and why?
Probably whatever time Star Trek could take place in. That level of
societal harmony is my dream.
one thing that you regret that you would go back and change if you
could? I'd have bought that Google stock :)
the one thing you want to do before you die? Become a
wildly successful syndicated comic artist.
three things you can't live without? My laptop, my iPod,
could have one superpower - or be one superhero - which power would you
pick, or which hero would you be? I'd be Spider-Man, but
if I had to have one power, it'd be density control (ie: the ability to
make myself incorporeal or dense as diamond.) The cheesy answer would
be Power Cosmic (ala the Silver Surfer) because that's basically any
power you want, but I'm trying to be cool here.
you want to be when you grew up? When I was REALLY
little, I wanted to be a garbarge man…later I wanted to be a comic
artist. I still want to be that.
your favorite mode of transportation? Teleportation. But
behind that, Lamborghini.
just purchased a small island off the coast of any continent of your
choosing, and you are preparing to start your own country there. What
does your flag look like? The Jolly Roger
the meaning of the universe? Man, why do you keep asking
about your favorite RPG character that you've ever played.
His name is Morningstar and he was my first Advanced Marvel Super
Heroes character. My first character in every game used to pretty much
have my personality. It was high school so I could play almost every
day. I loved that character and that game system because it was the
first time I could do everything I wanted to do in a game within the
