Woo! I'd almost forgotten about this!
What question would you like to be asked?
I like it when people ask me what my favorite joke is. It gives me a chance to share a bunch of jokes and for them to share a few as well.
What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?
I like dogs best. A dog about the size of a Shepard is good. It should bark, but shut up once the visitor is inside the door. And it should be cuddly. My current dog, Sparkle, is a black lab. He used to bark at everything until the visitor petted him. He no longer barks at visitors because he is deaf and cannot hear them walking to the door. He will probably die in the next year or two, but he is 14 so it's okay.
What is the square root of Pi?
1.86? Something close to that.
What's your favorite OOTS strip?
I like 660
the best and the others leading up to it. The whole Vaarsuvius evil arc is pretty cool. I'm trying to get something similar going in my campaign, but we're only just starting.
What's your favorite Erfworld strip?
It's the one where Stanley starts rocking out to "I Love it Loud" by KISS. I'm gonna go listen to that now. Found it.
How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?
I'd say I'm more passive aggressive online. I'm also not as funny because it is difficult to get humor across in text. I am also quieter because what I would've said has already been said in the thread I check out. I'd say my avatar represents me pretty well. "Rapier wit" and always ready to point out one more thing. Also, I do have pointy ears like an elf. Mutation in my dad that I got.
Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?
My loved one, but I always hate these choices. Like, if someone barges into my house and forces me to make that choice the most appropriate choice is to attack the man for setting up such a sadistic choice. Accepting the given choices as the only ones is the problem.
What is your favorite word?
Justice. I like J-words.
What is your least favorite word?
Groddy. It's slang for grotesque or gross.
What makes you enthusiastic?
Angry music. "Through the Fire and the Flames" by Dragonforce is a good example. Also, thinking about playing soccer, D&D, or dragons.
What disappoints you?
What sound do you love?
I like the sound when you bring your palm down on a empty bottle. The sort of Boink noise it makes is really cool.
What sound do you hate?
People filing their nails. I have to leave the room when they do it.
What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?
I am currently in college at UC Davis studying to be a biochemist. If I was not a biochemist I would be a writer. I've actually had a few articles published in KODT, so I feel like I could actually make it as a writer if I tried. I think I'd prefer to do biochem and just have writing be a hobby instead.
What profession would you not like to participate in?
When I first became a biochem major I thought about being a Doctor. After meeting people in Med School I have changed my mind. It seems awful and it could destroy my marriage, so... Not happening.
1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?
Kari from Digimon. She seemed very powerful and I always like powerful people. Also, when I crushed on her she was totally my age. I imagined myself as TK sometimes.
2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?
3. Roses or orchids?
Roses. Orchids don't flower as often and they're too big. On the other hand Orchids smell better. I'd still go with Roses though.
4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?
Showering when I wake up. I feel pretty awful if I don't. I don't drink coffee, so showering fills that "wake up" role in my life.
5. How did you get to be so awesome?
I've always been awesome. I am inherently awesome because of my genes for intelligence from my mom and dad. I have always been funny and I am also very devoted to some stuff like writing, D&D, and biochem. I guess my dad just telling me to keep trying is the biggest influence outside of myself.
6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?
Ten years ago I was only 10... I was homeschooled... I can't think of anything I know now that I wish I'd known then. Sorry on copping out of this question a bit.
7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?
Like anybody? Well my fiancee would be my first pick. But if I can really pick anyone I would pick Jared who is the main character in one of the stories I am writing.
8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?
C.S. Lewis. I love his writing. I'd really like to talk to him about Christianity and other religions.
9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?
I want to be remembered for some drug or process I invented. I want to be remembered by my kids for being a great dad. I want to be remembered by gamers for an adventure I published.
10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)
I never got into looking at lolcats, but I found this xkcd comic
to be very funny.
11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?
The power to drill through anything. I would be able to spin my body super fast while flying. Then I would fly through Godzilla as I drilled through its chest.
12. Beards or babies?
What? Babies, I guess?
13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?
To Expritiate. It is a combination of the words expire and appreciate. It means to die from laughter/happiness. I've only used it a few times because people don't know the meaning. I've also made up hella words for D&D, but the best one is for my current campaign. Dragovinian. It means dragon vampire.
14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?
I'm going to approach it as a compound word. Whiol- = take time. -plen- = plan. -ulent = liquid. Definition: The event of taking time to plan an ocean crossing.
15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?
Whither will I walk on dreams of avarice or over the fields of gold into God's own grace.
16. Favorite mythological monster?
17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?
Within the bowels of the Grindery from Lunar 1.
18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?
Yes. I only had one arm at the time, so I used a double sword like Darth Maul's to counter your two swords. We fought to the music of "Through the Fire and the Flames." I won when you became distracted by the fragment of my personality I had left in your mind earlier. While you were distracted, I knocked a sword out of your hands and then absorbed it into my own sword. From there It was easy to beat you because my sword was a double and yours was not.
19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?
A mix is good. I liked the silly ones a little better though.
20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?
I felt like it would allow the playgrounders to know a little more about me. It'd also let me know a little bit more about myself. Finally, my players who come on here can read about me and know more about me as well.
What color(s) do you prefer to wear?
I like blue and green best. White and black are also good. Red is my next favorite. I don't like the other colors that much.
What do you like to collect?
How many avatars do you have?
Pictures for myself on the internet or aliases on the internet?
Are you ever coming to GenCon?
I've thought about it, but its never worked with my schedule. I also don't like local conventions when I've gone to them. I don't think I'd like GenCon much either.
What type of chocolate do you prefer?
Hershey's. Their recipe has a bunch of sugar which makes it way better.
What type and how many pets do you have?
I have my black lab, Sparkle. He has a purple collar and he poops at least twice on every single walk I take him on. I think I talked about him in a previous question.
Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel?
No. I turned it on once and got bored two minutes in.
