It was a dark and stormy night... No really it was. We were having a very rainy night in San Diego. The kind of night where only Sponge Bob would be happy. I was waiting for something in the mail, so I went out to get it during a break in the storm. When I got inside, I slipped on the tile entry way of our condo, and down I went. I'm on crutches, and when you hit wet anything it's like Bambi on ice. I hit hard, looked down at my wrist and told the rest of my friends waiting to get back to game. I think I broke my arm!

Most of the party went to the urgent care with me, while a few members stayed behind to lock up the house and put away dice before the cats stole them. I broke the inner edge of my radius into 5 pieces. The most painful part of all was the novicaine that they put in there to numb you while setting the bones. I always thought dentists were sadists when they dig around in your gums with it, but now I know it's a novicaine requirement. I wanted to die.

Thank god for the morphine drip.

1. Can you cook?

Yes and no. Boil water, simple meals with one or two ingredients, sure. I do make a damn good cup of tea. At least my wife says so. I'll get up in the morning, head to the Y to exercise, and then come back home to shower and make tea for her and the kids before they get up to go to work and school. Then I head off to work.

2. What was your dream growing up?

I always wanted to be a writer. but I also wanted to find my birth parents. Still working on the former, and the latter isn't as important to me now as it was when I was a kid. I'm happier now than I was then. I met someone, fell in love, got married, had kids.

3. What talent do you wish you had?

I wish I could draw.

11. What is your favorite sport?

Baseball. Though I like watching volleyball. My oldest played for eight years and my youngest is now getting involved in club.

12. Do you have a Negative or Optimistic attitude?

I'm probably smack dab in the middle. My brain's wired so I can interpret subliminal signs/motivations so I'm sometimes cynical, but I'm a softie. Some of my favorite movies are tearjerkers, such as It's A Wonderful Life, Scrooge (with Albert Finney), Fools Rush In, Brigadoon, etc.

13. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?

If this was real life, talk books, family, life.
if this was book life, climb through the roof, crack the doors next floor up, and then take the stairs. Building might be on fire or the cable on the elevator could break and I saw the Mythbusters episode where they dropped the elevator to test whether you could jump in the air right before it hits bottom.

14. Worst thing to ever happen to you?

Blessed in a way. The worst things happened to other people close to me.

15. Tell me one weird fact about you.

The bars I frequent are in hotels at conventions.

Yes.

29. Favorite thing to do in your spare time?

Read.

30. Do you swear a lot?

Probably. But my conscience gives me a disapproving look.

Other drivers. Most behave like they're immortal.

32. In one word, how would you describe yourself?

Achates

33. In one word, how would you describe me?

Friend*

I'm not a bar person.

28. Do you believe in ghosts?

dqg_nealdqg_neal on March 9th, 2007 12:42 pm (UTC)
had to trim some text because this got too long. Assume humor throughout.

1. Can you cook? I can burn water!!! I can grow vegetables and so can make a delicious salad, but thats not exactly cooking, besides salad is only a promise of food, not food.
2. What was your dream growing up? To be the savior of mankind. But unfortunately they say that some other carpenter's son got that job.
3. What talent do you wish you had? To instantly set off metal detectors by having a metal skeleton that I can force blades out through my skin and the ability to heal almost instantly. If that is off the list, then the ability to instantly transfer the films I have rolling into my head into coherent text that I wouldn't have to edit.
4. Favorite place? wherever my wife is. otherwise in a beautiful wilderness landscape playing with wolves.
5. Favorite vegetable? Is there such a thing as a favorite vegetable, its more like saying the most palatable vegetable. I enjoy brocolli with lots of butter or cheese. But most likely it would be that I'm a rabbit. Give me a bag of mini carrots and they'll be gone before you have time to ask if I'll share.
6. What was the last book you read? Dragon bones by Patricia Briggs
7. What zodiac sign are you? Pieces
8. Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? None yet.

19. Do you think clowns are cute or scary? cute... unless they are Killer Clowns from Outerspace

28. Do you believe in ghosts? Yes, and unfortunately they believe in me too.

30. Do you swear a lot? No, not adverse to swearing, but when I do it is generally noticable.
31. Biggest pet peeve? Misusue of the language
32. In one word, how would you describe yourself? unique (I was going to try and use a sentence long decription using hyphens throughout so it was just one word, but decided against it).
33. In one word, how would you describe me? writerfu
34. Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you? Do you really expect someone to say no?
