Who is your favorite super hero? It was always a tie between Captain America (Steve) and Spiderman.
Did you have a favorite stuffed animal and if so what was its name? I did not, and I do not.
What kind of deodorant do you wear? Right Guard Sport, unscented. Aerosol. Can’t stand the feeling of squooging something in my armpit.
What is your favorite book? Hmm. I really like a couple, so let me give you the first ones I thought of: Remains of the Day, Ender’s Game, and The Missing Piece.
What was the best meal you’ve ever had?I have enjoyed plenty of excellent food. But my favorite meals, consistently, are full of friends and fun. Two such were in Atlanta—I love the family style dinner at Maggiano’s, and we also enjoyed a heck of an Indian meal at a place called Raja’s, I think.
Which class do you wish you had never taken in college/high school? Choir, in high school—it hooked me on a hobby I didn’t know I would hate to love. Literature by Women, in college—I guess a dozen chicks, two dudes, and we spent the semester deflecting attacks. Yay!
What is your least favorite inherited trait? My short fuse. (Is that inheritable?) I’d also say that being short is my least favorite inherited trait.
Describe something that hangs on your bedroom wall. A mirror. It used to hang on a wall opposite my bathroom, so I could watch tv while, uhm, sitting on the throne. It was always odd to see a guy get a hit in baseball, then head off to third!
What does heaven smell like? A fresh mowed lawn.
What is your guilty pleasure TV show? Highlander. Well, that’s not a guilty pleasure—I shamelessly admit to watching it, and forcing others to do so. I tried Glee for a while—and for the first five or so episodes, it was a guilty (almost) pleasure. But I couldn’t handle it. So I stopped.
You’re on a tropical deserted island. You have a spoon, a ping pong ball, and fishing line. What do you do for fun? Fish, duh! And hang out with the person(s) I’m stranded with!
