01) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
Yes. Engaged.

03) What talent do you wish you had?
That I were a better musician.

04) If I bought you a drink what would it be?
Red wine; pretty much any full-bodied red that goes down smoothly.

05) Favorite vegetable?
Beets. Butternut squash.

06) What was the last book you read?
Peter Seewald and Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Salt of the Earth: The Church at the End of the Millennium.

07) What zodiac sign are you?
Taurus.

08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where.
Nope. I'm too chicken even to get my ears pierced.

09) Worst Habit?
Not as disciplined as I could be in so many things.

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
Of course!

11) What is your favorite sport?
Baseball! Go, Phillies! :D

12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude?
I've been a pessimist for far too long, and I'm working on being more of an optimist.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
Strike up a conversation with you while we tried to figure how the heck to get out.

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?
Student visa trouble.

15) Tell me one weird fact about you.
One of my eyes is slightly different from the other-- one has a double lid, the other a single lid.

16) Do you have any pets?
Yes. Gary Cat! :D

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly?
Invite you in and ask you to stay for dinner.

18) What was your first impression of me?
Quiet, definitely, but I don't know much about you apart from our mutual love of Sherlock Holmes. Very thoughtful, certainly. I remember what you said about being married, and about having each other's backs.

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
I've seen both that clown-bed episode of The Simpsons and Stephen King's It. I'll opt for "scary."

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
I wish my ears didn't stick out as much, but I'm generally happy with the way I look.

21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
Your conscience.

22) What color eyes do you have?
Brown.

23) Ever been arrested?
No.

24) Bottle or can soda?
Bottle.

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?
Use it to pay my tuition, and to give some to helping out my parish.

26) What's your favorite place to hang out at?
Make that "places" (in no particular order): Citizen's Bank Park, St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, the Peter and Paul Basilica (or pretty much any Catholic church), Anthropologie, Borders, Barnes and Noble, the University of Pennsylvania library.

27) Do you believe in ghosts?
No. But I believe in the Holy Ghost, a.k.a the Holy Spirit.

28) Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
Cook, read my Bible, read a book in general.

29) Do you swear a lot?
I've... cut down considerably.

30) Biggest pet peeve?
That'd be plural. Clutter, smugness, and shallowness.

31) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
Complex.

32) Do you believe/appreciate romance?
Yes, of course. But it's usually the kind that's very intimate, and which has elegance and beauty in its simplicity.

33) Favorite and least favorite food?
I've far too many favorite foods. Like cheese. Strawberries. Hearty soups and stews. Roasted meat. Pretty much anything that tastes yummy and is made with care and love. Least favorite food? That's easy: overcooked and under-seasoned anything. Killing, nay murdering, food long after it's dead is just plain yucky.

34) Do you believe in God?
Of course! :D

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

I did, dude. ;)

It occurs to me that I never went back to number 30. I can't think of my biggest pet peeve, but in the spirits of little inconsequential things that drive me crazy I will pick people not checking clients in on the computer. Sometimes they page that I have a room but don't mark it computer appointment book so I don't know which a\pointment is there.

01) Are you currently in a serious relationship? Yes.

02) What was your dream growing up? To be a wizard, then a chemist, then a poet, and now a librarian apparently.

03) What talent do you wish you had? I have *always* wanted to be able to sing.

04) If I bought you a drink what would it be? Coke Zero with cherry syrup. Yum.

05) Favorite vegetable? Potatoes cooked, tomatoes not. Favorite interesting vegetable... mushroom is a fungi so I'll have to go with bitter greens.

06) What was the last book you read? "Every Dead Thing" by John Connolly

07) What zodiac sign are you? Scorpio, or Libra apparently.

08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where. Nope, but I'm working on it.

09) Worst Habit? Using food to make myself feel entertained, satisfied, relaxed.

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride? Yes, but that assumes both that I know you for the purposes of this question and that I'm not day dreaming the way I usually am. It is very unlikely I would notice you walking down the street. Sorry!

11) What is your favorite sport? I always liked silly sports like kickball and badminton. Not big into sports because while I can be extremely competitive I don't really like competition. It can bring out the worst in me.

12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude? Mostly optimistic.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me? Depends. If we just got stuck I'd push the alarm button and call for help on my cell. If we've been stuck a while or were in some kind of danger I'd probably try to plot an escape plan with you.

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you? I don't talk about that, but being victimized and then feeling stupid and guilty and ashamed for something that someone else did to you is the worst.

15) Tell me one weird fact about you. The ring fingers on my hands are strangely wired into my pinkies. If I bend either pinky the finger next to it bends too.

16) Do you have any pets? Yes. Geist, our dog.

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly? I'd probably be in my boxers and who knows what Paul would be wearing.

18) What was your first impression of me? I get overloaded meeting more than 2 or 3 people at once so I didn't think anything about you. I remember disliking Caf right away though.

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary? Neither. Strange, maybe?

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be? It's silly but I'd like to have hairy legs. The rest of me is hairy, except my legs. It's just weird looking.

21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience? I default to Jiminy Cricket mode, but as long as no one is going to get hurt I have a pretty intense love of pranks, silliness and mischief. Paul and you outshine me in that for sure though.

22) What color eyes do you have? Hazel, though somebody told me once they were olive, which I liked.

23) Ever been arrested? Yes, but never convicted. Bwahaha!

24) Bottle or can soda? Fountain all the way.

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it? Pay off some bills and fix some low-level issues with the house and indulge myself with a few new t-shirts and other minor stuff.

26) What's your favorite place to hang out at? Our house

27) Do you believe in ghosts? I'm open to the possibility.

28) Favorite thing to do in your spare time? lounging, reading, video games

29) Do you swear a lot? I say minor stuff like crap, stupid, idiot, moron, hell, etc a lot.

30) Biggest pet peeve? When nice people get dumped on, especially repeatedly

31) In one word, how would you describe yourself? Striving

32) Do you believe/appreciate romance? sure, if I recognize it as such. I've learned that people can be romantic in unexpected ways

33) Favorite and least favorite food? I hate "favorite" questions. Indian cuisine, sandwiches, pizza, soups, dessert. Least favorite: Licorice, olives, pickles

34) Do you believe in God? sort of, I believe in Something sometimes. It's the best I can do.

Huh. I didn't know that. I guess because Paul's barely does and mine does it A LOT, I thought it was unusual. Well, now you've learned something else unusual about me.... I didn't know that was unusual. :)

Oh yeah, the last question was something like, would you be willing to post this on your LJ? I was afraid of creating an endless feedback loop.

I didn't repost it for that reason, I am interested in everyone's answers, but I figured I could read them on all the other similar posts.
