1. I make some mean Kraft Dinner, and I can grill a steak.

2. First, wait a couple minutes to make sure that it's really stuck. During this time I'd be listening for any telltale sounds of anything else going wrong as well as read all the posted signs for instructions on what to do in this sort of situation. Second, I'd follow instructions if any or else I'd press the alarm button. Third, I'd start investigating the ceiling for a way out. I'd have to be trapped for a while before I'd climb, but I'd open the panel and look around. Finally, I'd either take a nap (if alone) or have some sort of distracting conversation (if there are other people in the car).

3. I want to learn to play the theremin. I've been looking for a teacher.

4. Victoria, BC Canada

5. Broccoli

6. Do I have to be honest? Eep. Okay. Chosen of the Sun by Richard E Dansky.

7. A little of each

8. Nope. I was tattooed once, but after some surgery it was gone.

9. Grinding my teeth

00

1. We've met a few times at various cons.

2. Whoever you are, be the best "you" that you can be.

3. Optimistic

4. I wanted to be an astronaut or a tech geek.

5. Getting dumped

6. You are a certain kind of hot.

7. I've been disemboweled (which was my second choice for number 5).

8. I'd totally have your back.

9. Yes.

10. I've never thought "Jae must never hear this."

11. I like you. I wish we were closer geographically so we could hang and game.

12. Yes, a little of both.

13. I would cry real tears if you died.

14. It would take a pretty odd situation for me to be your partner in crime. Being your conscience sounds much more likely.

15. Yes, I'd change your address to be closer to mine. :)

16. On my side.

17. I don't express anger well vocally. I'd flame you in e-mail.

18. I am so very taken. Thanks for the thought, though. If I were available then I'd trust you to set up a good blind date.

19. Does this mean telling you that you only had one day to live? I'd be honest.

20. I'd buy a house.

21. I have more nightmares about falling than about anything else, so I guess that counts. It's not very likely, though. How about "being alone"?

22. Prep for one of my myriad upcoming games

23. Not at all

24. I can sing. I so cannot dance.

25. Brilliant

26. Probably not, but don't let that stop you. :)

I'll just go ahead and answer this in the reply, so you can see my answers. :)

1. Can you cook?
Very, very well, but I need to be motivated. Chinese is my favorite cuisine to make.

2. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator?
Sit down. Use the phone to call for help if there is one. Use MY phone to call for help if it works. If none of those are available, and someone else is there with me, help them to climb up and out to get us help. If alone and unable to summon help, sleep.

3. What talent do you wish you had?
I wish I could draw the things I see in my mind.

4. Favorite place?
A dark movie theater with good popcorn and a great movie.

5. Favorite vegetable?
Tomatoes. (Yes, I know they're technically a fruit.)

6. What was the last book you read?
Skipping Towards Armageddon: The Politics and Propaganda of the Left Behind Novels and the LaHaye Empire

7. Are you Dirty or Clean?
Clean but very untidy. I differentiate between clutter and actual dirt.

8. Any Tattoos and/or Piercings?
Just my earlobes.

9. Worst Habit?
Forgetting things.

HERE COMES THE FUN ... ... ...


1. Do we know each other outside of Livejournal?
Yes.

2. What's your philosophy on life?
Do unto others as you'd have them do unto you; a little compassion goes a long way; do good when you can.

3. Negative or Optimistic?
Cynical optimist. I expect the worst but hope for the best.

4. What was your dream growing up?
To survive childhood. To be loved.

5. Worst thing to ever happen to you?
When they took Living Force away from me. That was worse even than losing my mother and my long-term relationship over the same 3 month period.

6. Do you think I'm hot or not?
More like cuddly. :)

7. Tell me one weird fact about you:
I was once a fashion model.

I'd have your back.

As much as I trust anyone. (see above - cynically optimistic)

Probably. No idea what, though.

11. What do you think of me as a Person?
I think you're good people; creative, caring and passionate.

Insane. None of us in this hobby are sane.

13. Would you cry for me if I died?
Oh, yes, I would.

14. Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
You'd never do the crime, but I'd try to talk you out of it if you planned to.

15. If you could change anything about me, would you?
I'd bolster your self-confidence.

16. How do you fall asleep?
Instantly. Wherever. Whenever. Sometimes when I don't want to.

17. Would you come over to yell at me or just call?
I'd come over. Much more effective that way. And then you could yell back.

18. Would you go on a blind date if I set you up?
Probably.

19. If I only had one day to live would you be honest or lie?
I'd be honest. You'd need to know about it to make your plans.

20. A million bucks.. what would you do with it?
Pay off bills, help out friends, give to a couple of charities.

21. What is your worst fear?
Growing old alone and unloved.

22. Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
Gaming! Role Playing Gaming!

23. How many times did you curse at me while filling out this?
None.

24. Can you sing or dance?
Sing yes - voice is adequate. Dance... technically, but it's pretty clumsy.

25. In one word, how would you describe me? Be honest....
Fun.
