1. Do you have a tattoo?
No

2. How old are you?
32

3. Are you single or taken?
no

4. Eat with your hands or utensils?
Both. Right now I'm eating raw green beans with my hands.

5. Do you dream at night?
Yes. I seem to remember more of them than most people.

6. Ever seen a corpse?
Human, only at wakes. Mice, all too many.

7. George Strait or Jay Z?
Huh?

8. How did we meet?
At the polywrite writing group Robin organized.

9. What's your philosophy on life and death?
I usually leave the religion discussions to others.

10. If you could do anything with me, and have no one know, what would it be?
Take spray paint and correct the grammar and punctuation of every street sign in reach.

11. Do you trust the police?
No

12. Do you like Country music?
Some of it.

13. What is your fondest memory of me?
Several wonderful ah ha! moments in writing group.

14. If you could change anything about yourself what would it be?
Dear god, I don't think I'm up for answering that question. It'd be nice to drop all the allergies. Or the migraines.

15. Would you cheat?
No

16. What do you wear to sleep?
Depends on the weather. I get made fun of for needing to have socks on to fall asleep in winter, but always taking them off before I wake up.

17. Have you ever peed in a pool?
I'm sure. What's worse, when I was about 6 or 7 I pooped in a NH lake. And lied about it.

18. Would you hide evidence for me if I asked you to?
Evidence of what?

19. If I only had one day to live, what would we do together?
If you only had one day to live, wouldn't that be up to you? I mean, I know that's a cop out answer, but really...

20. Which do you prefer - short or long hair?
That's as dumb as asking whether I prefer boys or girls.

21. Do you sing in the shower?
Sometimes. Not nearly as much as Robin.

22. What's your favorite color?
Purple.

23. If you could bring back anyone that has passed, who would it be?
I have visions of Harry Potter telling me why this would be a bad idea. But in truth, I'm not sure. I've been wildly lucky to not know anyone intimately who has died before his or her time. (Oh, and I really hate the term "passed.")

24. Tell me one interesting/odd fact about you?
I have a crossed wire somewhere that makes me switch suffixes regularly when I write or type ("ed" and "ing" especially). Unlike other errors, I don't notice them at the time and have to reread everything I write to get them.

25. What was your first impression of me?
I don't remember exactly. Probably as a more articulate critic than I.

26. Have you ever done drugs?
Not illegal ones.

27. Will you post this so I can fill it out for you?
Not without commentary. But I suppose... :>
