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.

4. Favorite place?

Home and Scotland. Specifically Edinburgh and St. Andrews.

5. Favorite vegetable?

Cauliflower

6. What was the last book you read?

The Stone Man by Kenneth Robeson

7. What zodiac sign are you?

Libra

8. Any Tattoos and/or Piercings?

Nope and nope.

9. Worst Habit?

I watch too much television.

10. Do we know each other outside of Livejournal?

Not yet.

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.

Sigh. You're not letting me off light here are you? Well ... I can't stop from crying when I watch It's A Wonderful Life

16. Do you have any pets?

Three cats. Samantha, Mallory and Emma.

17. Do you know how to do the Macarena?

LOL. Slow dance. Foxtrot, waltz. Minimal swing.

18. What time is it where you are now?

12:32 p.m. EST

19. Do you think clowns are cute or scary?

Cute. Exception is Pennywise.

20. If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?

I'd go back to the weight and muscle tone I had my junior year.

21. Would you be my partner in crime or my conscience?

Crime is fun in book life. :-)

22. What color eyes do you have?

Brown.

23. Ever been arrested?

Nope.

24. Bottle or Draft?

Guinness draft.

25. If you won $10,000 dollars today, what would you do with it?

Pay my daughter's college tuition, pay bills.

26. What kind of bubble gum do you prefer to chew?

Wrigley's Spearmint.

27. What's your favorite bar to hang at?

The bars I frequent are in hotels at conventions.

28. Do you believe in ghosts?

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.

31. Biggest pet peeve?

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*

34. Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?

Sure.


* - I can't think of anyone I've met through SF/F that I couldn't consider a friend.
