Director/Screenwriter. I want to make movies, I want to be successful, I want to win awards.

However, I'm realistic and know that instead I will probably live in a crappy apartment the ghetto paying off student loans by working at Blockbuster and living off ramen, while all the time trying to convince people to read my script.

What was your biggest childhood fantasy?

Whenever anyone asks me to keep something confidential, even if it's illegal. I'm a trustworthy person.
The only time I wouldn't would be if someone was in physical danger.


If you could read one persons mind that's alive right now, no matter how far away, who would it be?

My first instinct was to say, "my ex." But boy, that would be a bad idea. (Besides, I have no idea if he's even thinking about me - he's probably thinking about, like, lint. He's doing laundry right now, and the people we share the laundry facilities are terrible about cleaning the lint screen.)

So, I would like to read Barack Obama's mind. That might be interesting.

Do you prefer to pay with cash or a credit/debit card, or by check? Why? (convenience, etc.)

Cash is for small (<$20) purchases, or ones I don't want traced for any reason. >.> Debit is for moderately priced items when I know I have the money in my account and/or more coming soon. Credit is for big purchases (>$100 or so) or for when the account is dodgy but more is on the way. (I pay off my credit card monthly. Sometimes onto my line of credit. :oops: )

Oooh, cool. I describe myself as a socialist, but I'm closer to a paternalist. I don't honestly care about comparative poverty, but think that everyone should be able to have healthcare, food, shelter, clothing, heating and access to a small amount of luxury goods from time to time. But once you get to that level of care, I don't see how spending more has much point compared to other things the money could be doing in the economy.

Enchilada. Burritos, I'm sure, have their places, but they sound so Taco Bell. Just the word "enchilada" sounds... authentic. I'm a sucker for tasty phonemes.

Judas. There's a tradition that says he was following Jesus's orders in betraying him, since the crucifixion had to happen. He couldn't (in this story) bear to be parted from his Lord, so he committed suicide the next day.

It's a tie. My family's always been big on Shelties (small-medium sized dogs, and very intelligent), and we got a puppy from a breeder (for the record, I always prefer getting dogs from shelters or rescue societies) when I was about five or six. At some point we moved, and the new house had a glass storm door. Banjo, being about two or three at this time, has never encountered glass storm doors before. The house was set up so that the staircase to the second floor ended on a tiny landing (about four feet square) in front of the front door. We'd just finished moving in and getting things set up proper-like, so we figured Banjo (who'd been locked in the master bedroom to keep him out from underfoot) would need to go do his business. We open the bedroom door and call for him, and he comes racing down the stairs. The front door is open, but we'd left the storm door closed. Banjo, never having encountered such a thing before, races down the stairs and promptly runs into the storm door at full tilt. Poor guy gets up, shakes his head a few times, and has the perfect expression of "What in the fuck..." on his bewildered face. We actually had to pick him up and carry him outside after that, because he refused to make a second attempt to pass through the "invisible wall".

That, or the time he ate my dad's present of a box of chocolate covered cherries while we were out. He ate the whole thing, including a lot of the packaging, and spent the rest of that day and most of the next puking and shitting everywhere. I'm sure it was worth it, though.

EDIT: Oh, yeah. When I was an infant, we had a mutt named Brandy. They'd never gotten him fixed, and apparently he was walking over me one day while I was on my back on the floor. According to my folks (and relatives), I reached up and grabbed his balls, and they said they've never seen a dog freeze mid-step like that or stand so utterly still :lol:

Spell "weird" on the first try. Even that one took me twice. I have to sound it out in my head, make it two syllables... "WEE-IRD."

90's grunge rock will always have a special place in my heart, as every Gen-X adolescent can attest. Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, and yes - even Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Mock me if you will.
Nowadays, it's more trip-hop (Portishead, specifically) and decent hip-hop (Saul Williams, Flobots, MF Doom, Del, etc) -- Honestly? Because I feel like I'm getting old, and I want to be relevant when my children reach adolescence, but I don't want to lose good taste either.

Hard to say. I love warming up and seeing the green things grow. I love the smells of spring and the longer days. I love hanging up my winter coat for the season and walking around in a light jacket. I love the moment when I can feel that the wind has turned and no longer has an edge on it.

I also love the cooling off after a brutal summer, and the darkening days that allow me to walk home when it's cool. I love climbing into fuzzy sweaters that I've ignored for months. I love putting my hat back on and digging out my gloves. I love feeling the first edge of the cool wind, and seeing and smelling the browning leaves.

It's all good, I guess. Everything in its turn.

If you could pick one outfit to wear all year round, ignoring practical concerns like temperature or appropriateness, what would it be?

If I could get away with it, no matter where I was or what I was doing, I'd wear the pair of torn-up, tattered jeans I've had for 10 years... patched, stitched, but oh-so-comfy... and the flimsy leather slip-ons I'm wearing now... and the French-cuff pinstripe shirt in the closet I never wear, with the brushed nickel cufflinks sitting in my drawer. And my beat newsboy hat. Satchel, pipe, earrings, great-grandma's class ring, and I'm good to go.

Favourite board game?

I suppose I shower late afternoon or at night, since my morning is most people's late afternoon (about 4 PM.) I also shower after I get off work, before going out to exercise.

I'm not sure what a fandom is? I'm a gamer, and I tend to play Valve, Blizzard, and UT games religiously. I also tend to read Stephen King more than most other authors. Does that count?
EDIT: Ninja'd (grr.)

Hm. Intentionally, about 82 hours. I didn't sleep as most people define sleep for about a full week after the surgery on my arm due to swelling and discomfort. I passed out for about an hour or two once a day or once every other day or so, but that was about it. Not good times.

Beach or forest? Mountains or grasslands/prairies?

Impossible to choose. I have lived in all of these environments (except the "grasslands/prairies" was more like "high dessert and sagebrush"), and they all have their own unique beauty. I would say that mountains have the most special place in my heart, though. I currently live at the bottom of a 14K+ foot volcano, and I am STILL awed by it every day.

A comfortable pair of tennis shoes. I have finally accumulated a small shoe collection over the years, but I still go around 90% of the time in tennis shoes.

Small, comfortable house. No question. I've seen some huge houses (my last job involved programming/installing automation systems and the houses were usually quite large -- my last project there was a 30k square foot house!). Anyway, I don't see the appeal in all that space.
