About

I don’t like writing these biography pages so I’m just going to answer a bunch of questions that I found on a website.  I’ll add to them periodically.

 

What is your favorite fruit flavor?

Apple, preferably in hard cider form.

Which sitcom character do you relate to? 

Clearly it would be someone on The Big Bang Theory because I’m kind of a dork.  I’m going to go with Leonard Hofstadter.  Other’s have said Sheldon Cooper but those people are cruel and should be ignored, whether they’re my children or not.
If you knew that this was your last day on earth, how would you spend it?

I’d try to get all of the people I care about together to watch movies. There would be popcorn and Goobers and a bar.  I may just rent a theater.  I’d tell my family that the NEXT day was my last day (except my kids).  Shhh. Don’t tell them about my blog.
If you were granted three wishes, what would you ask for?

This is way too open ended.  I mean, can I wish that everyone in the world is happy and content?  If so I really only need one wish.  So I’m going to just assume that they’re wishes for me.  1. Enough money that it’s no longer an issue. 2. True love (the Princess Bride kind). 3. Knowledge of the working of the universe — where we came from, how things started, what the life on other planets are up to, etc.

What is the one thing you can’t do, no matter how hard you try?

A cartwheel
What are your pet peeves?

People who ALWAYS have to be joking and can’t answer a question seriously.

What are questions that you don’t like to answer?

It depends who is asking.  There are some people I’d rather didn’t ask me any questions.  And there are some who can ask me anything.

If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would it be?

Tough call.  I feel like Dolphins really have it going on — smart, great skin, community oriented, but they have to eat other creatures while they’re still alive and that’s kind of gross.  I’d rather be an herbivore but most of the herbivores are pretty low on the food chain as in they tend to get chased down and eaten on a regular basis.

What smells make you happy?

Any smells of fall. Fresh out of the shower smell. Bread or pie baking. Campfire.
Where do you see yourself five years from now?

Happy and content.  The where and how are unimportant.
What would you do if you won the lottery?

This is one of my favorite things to talk about so I’ll probably save this subject for a blog post of it’s own.
If you were born a boy/girl, how would things have turned out for you?

I would have boobies.  That would rock.
Would you be brave enough to spend an entire hour alone in a cemetery?

Yes.  I wouldn’t see it as brave since I don’t believe in ghosts and such.

What is the most famous person you have ever met?

L.C. Greenwood or Mr Mcfeily

What is the worst thing your mom caught you doing as a kid?

Throwing rocks at cars.

What is a movie moment that completely transformed you?

The end of Dead Poet’s society.  And the end of The Princess Bride.  Cheesy, I know.  The first showed me that you should always stand up for what you believe in if it’s important.  The second shows that love perseveres.
What is the one thing you wish you could do if given the chance?

Deep sea dive with the fishes.
Do you believe that there is life beyond our planet?

How couldn’t there be?  There’s like a billion billion stars out there.

Got a phobia you want to share?

Heights. Public Speaking. Creatures that want to kill me.
How long can you hold your breath?

Let me check.  One minute and twenty seconds.
If you were stranded on an island, what are the three most important things that you think you would need?

If we’re talking survival, a machete, a big pot, and a giant tarp.  If survival is taken care of, a companion who I really get along with (preferably female), a library of books (yes, I’m counting that as one thing), and a satellite radio that would allow me to hear what’s going on in the world.

How do you think the world is going to end? In flames or an ice age?

If those are my only two choices, then flames.  With our nuclear weapons, a moody sun right near by, and the possibility of aliens with a death star sort of thingy, the odds of flames are much better than slowly drifting into an ice age.  I think we’d find a way to survive that.
Do you believe that the end of the world is looming in this year 2016?

No.  If I did, would I be writing this blog right now?
What are the five things you cannot do without?

Pizza, Love, Coffee, Hope, my phone
What is your favorite day of the week?

Seriously?
Are you a cat/dog person?

I love them both.  I refuse to choose.
If you had to choose between world domination or world peace, which one would you pick?

Who would choose world domination?
What is your favorite color and why?

Purple, because it’s the BEST color.
If you could live on any other planet, which one would it be?

Obviously, it would be Uranus.

How many places have you traveled to? Name them.

Not many. I live in the United States and I’ve at least passed through about half of them.  And I’ve been to Canada and Jamaica.
