What is your favorite way to spend a weekend? By weekend
I assume you mean the time where I’m not working. Which is today. I’m
writing right now before I go play violent video games where you get
cash prizes depending on how badly you hurt other people. That’s a good
healthy hobby, right?
your accomplishments are you the most happy with?
Getting my life to the point where it is. My parents like who I am, I
like who I am, and I’ve got a wonderful girlfriend and a wee kiddo who
sometimes looks up to me. It’s strange, but the world I live in makes
your first word? I was the third kid so no one really
paid attention when I stood on my own, spoke, or played with
power-tools until I hurt someone else’s child.
your favorite word? At this very instant? Onomatopoeia.
Nothing says ridiculous like a word that describes a sound-effect.
languages do you speak? One and an eighth. Spanish was
taken, fallen asleep during, and scraped by with a passing grade
through copious cheating, finagling, and downright luck.
your favorite time of year, and why? Winter. I love the
cool air, the stuff that passes for snowfall in this part of the world,
and the fact that my job is seasonal and I get it off.
your most prized physical possession? My visa card? It
allows me to get other prized physical possessions!
could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I’d like to be smarter. I mean, I’m not stupid or anything, but I’d
just like to be smarter.
have any embarrassing nicknames as a kid? I had one in
high school. Juice wizard. I got this because my mother (yeah, even in
high school. I was a lazy, lazy kid) would make my lunches with grape
juice boxes in em’ and instead of chucking them out like a regular
citizen, I piled them up in my locker. Eventually it got to the point
that my backpack wouldn’t fit in there and I got my picture in the
underground school newspaper. I took them home and ants attacked the
house. It was a classic, “You threw them away?! Why?! How could you!?”
moment until I learnt that the ants were willing to destroy all of
civilization to get to them.
your favorite toy as a child? I had a broken “Light
sword” that was a cheap rip off of a Star Wars toy. It glowed in the
dark, and leaned to one side. But if I had to go to the bathroom in the
dark, it became a +5 holy avenger of evil bumpitties in the night
you cry? Thinking about my dad hard enough will get a
tear out of my every damn time.
your favorite section of the newspaper? I only read the
comics. There’s a huge pile of them at work. I discard the rest as it
doesn’t involve my little world.
have a useless talent that no one else that you know can do?
If I’m really cold or hot, I can give a good shake and my temperature
just sort of adjusts. Poof. I’m neutral again.
three things you can't live without? Love, electricity,
and free time.
could have one superpower, which power would you pick?
Walking through things. That’s just so cool and I’d use it so stupidly.
you want to be when you grew up? A fire engine. It’s
even in my yearbook from elementary school. I was a weird kid.
your favorite mode of transportation? I dig walking but
I’m one of those “I don’t have the time for walking! I go to work in 36
hours!” kind of people.
could pick any other time period to live in - including the future -
which would it be, and why? Waaaaay back. We had a crazy
animal instinct at one point and we just pushed it under. I’d like to
see more of how we are attracted to each other through the size of our
pancreases (It’s true!)
one thing that you regret that you would go back and change if you
could? Ouch. My sister had a birthday party and I had
the choice of going to the museum with just my dad, or going to the
pool with my sister and all her friends that didn’t like me. Of course,
I went to the pool and was miserable. For the rest of my life, I swear
that if I chose to go with my dad, we would’ve had a really different
relationship. He had such a hurt look in his eyes. Now I feel bad.
the one thing you want to do before you die? Tell a
terrible joke on my deathbed.
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? Either the yellow sign from
Call of Cthulhu, or a sigil I made up.
