Ask Me Anything: Snippets from my Formspring.me page
I’m enjoying this little website. It’s like Twitter but less demanding. It doesn’t require you to sign up for anything to ask me a question. Just click here and go Ask Me Anything
Q. Imagine, if you will, you’re in a dimension not of sight, or of sound, but of mind…what do you look like?
A. Brilliant neon green. A pulsating orb of energy.
Q. How are y’all today?

Q. Do you have an accent (as reckoned by your friends and co-workers)? What kind?
A. Nope. Midwesterners are pretty accent free (until we travel to other parts of the country).
Q. Would you rather be right, or be happy? No weaseling by claiming they are always compatible, please.

Q. What do you sleep in?
A. in bed with my wife.
Q. Would you rather be really hot or really cold?

Q. What did you eat for breakfast today?
A. Waffles made by the best cook in the world (as attested to by my growing waistline).

Q. Unfortunately I dwell on things. It took me nearly 17 years to pick up a pencil again after an off-hand comment by an Art Teacher in high school.
Q. What’s your favorite type of character to play (or read about if you don’t play RPGs)?
A. I like Gnomes and I like Elves.

A. Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes, and No. I’ve written the adventures of Stev the Vulcan for the better part of 20 years. Older stories were published by the club I joined at the beginning. I’ve re-published some of these over at Fan Fiction.net
Q. If you could change the ending of one movie, which one and how?
A. Just one? Right now I’ve plenty of bad movies running through my head and not one of the stands out as being repairable by changing the ending. You have given me an idea for Database post.
Q. Do you have any fantasy jobs? (Like a dream job, except you know you’d hate the non-idealized real-life version of it.)
A. Actually being able to support the family with my puppeteering.
Q. Suppose you lived in an ideal world, with no war, crime, poverty, disease, etc. Would your current job still exist?

Q. If you could have lunch with any one in the world who would it be and why?
