1. When's the last time you bought a craft?
That is a great question. I'm honestly not sure!

2. What games have you been playing lately?
I've been playing the original Summoner for a thread about old PS2 games I made a while ago, and that I haven't been able to update because of computer problems. As soon as I can get those fixed I'll start posting in it again. In lieu of that, I've also been playing Wild ARMS Alter Code: F. I don't understand what the title refers to, but it's been a good time so far.

3. Now, I know my ABCs, next time won't you sing with me?
Sure, but I must warn you that, although I can carry a tune, I'm not the greatest singer.

4. Do you mow the lawn?
Don't have a lawn to mow.

5. What is your favourite song from Grease?
I've only recently come around to musicals, and I still don't like Grease, but I'll cheat and say it's the Frankie Valli song from the opening of the movie. Something I didn't know before answering this question, but that totally makes sense in retrospect, is that the song was written by Barry Gibb.

6. If you were to enter an eating contest, which food would you consume?
Mozzarella sticks, I guess.

1. Does this mean a craft that someone else made, or a kit/materials to make something myself? If it's the former, my answer is yesterday (I went to a local craft show and bought a hand-braided bracelet). If the latter, then today (I bought yarn to make some Yoshi dolls).

2. The only game I've touched in the past two months was Itadaki Street DS.

3. I'd rather sing with Big Bird.


4. Nope. But I do pretty much all of the other yard maintenance.

5. I've never seen it.

6. I just wolfed down a big bowl of quinoa so I'm gonna go with that.

1. The Tar Pits are a prison for dinosaurs who were left there until they became skeletons!

2. Nope!

3. Given how strong my sense of balance is, Rollerskates, by merit of having more surface area.

4. This... is hard. First thought-Best-thought is Dom Toretto. But that’s the only way I could narrow it down.

5. What’s it worth to ya, stranger?

6. Don’t have the necessary relatives.

...I have no idea what's in LA, but that's further west or south than I've ever been so I'm sure that just walking around the city would be incredibly novel.

2. Have you ever witnessed a live birth?
Nope!

3. Do you prefer skates, rollerskates or rollerblades?
Nope!

4. What is your favourite Vin Diesel role?
Nope! Unless that Human Giant sketch counts.

5. May I go to the bathroom please?
Nope!

6. Are you an aunt or an uncle?
N-- well, it's complicated. I was one when I was married, and the kids still call me uncle Jordan, so I dunno.

1. If you were in Los Angeles, what would you like to see?
Literally anything other than the airport or UCLA or the freeway between the airport and UCLA would be a nice change of pace.
2. Have you ever witnessed a live birth?
Just my daughter’s and the doctors were nice enough to hide everything behind a screen. Definitely saw a few slimy red bits in my periphery though. My wife tells me that was likely her uterus. (c section)
3. Do you prefer skates, rollerskates or rollerblades?
Gotta go with the blades. Our main source of entertainment in the 90s was hurting ourselves jumping over curbs in the bank parking lot and then retiring to the mini mart for giant sprees and big slams of Mt. Dew.
4. What is your favourite Vin Diesel role?
Groot by default, never made it through any of his other movies.
5. May I go to the bathroom please?
Of course. Fourth door on the right.
6. Are you an aunt or an uncle?
Yup. Two nephews. I even like one of them!

1. Something comedy related. I listen to a lot of comedy podcasts, so I'd love to see one of the live shows they keep harping on about.
2. No.
3. Um... skates. Haven't don it in a while.
4. Groot.
5. Too late.
6. Yep. And my job is being a nanny to my niece.

1. Either Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya or Sonic Triple Trouble. Depends on my mood.
2. Eyeball. Especially if the replacement would be an upgrade, so I could have a CYBER EYE
3. Not unless wandering to the bathroom and back in such a deep haze you're unsure if you even did it counts.
4. If you mean "delivered something to the mailbox for the sake of someone else", a couple of months ago. Otherwise, my brain doesn't extend that far.
5. Its beauty brought me to tears.
6. Look, its the only possible explanation for the Benestein bears

1. What's your favourite Game Gear game?
Sonic. I'm sure there are others that I'd enjoy more, but I never owned a GG, so all that I've ever played is Sonic, Columns, and Bonkers (that cartoon Bobcat that used to have animated shorts before movies).

Edit: Looking at Octo's answer, I'm confident mine would have been Shining Force if I'd ever had the pleasure. I love that series.

2. If you could have a spare body part in the event one was lost, what would it be?
I'm unclear if this question is asking if I'd want I'd most like to have extra of or what I'd most like to have a back-up of, but I guess leg either way? I'd hate to lose my daily walks, and if I'm allowed to use 3 at once then I'd be able to walk and a really good clip. Also the further weight distribution might help with my plantar fasciitis!

3. Have you ever sleepwalked?
Yup! I'm confident I've shared this anecdote here before, but I couldn't find it to link, so in brief: when I was a teenager, I got out of bed, walked over to my TV, and dropped it on the floor. My parents ran into the room in a panic, and I looked at them and then went back to bed. For years after that until I finally replaced it, my bedroom TV would randomly have volume spikes.

4. When is the last time you sent mail?
Probably Festivus last year? I'm intending to send out this year's Festivus goods soon, though!

5. How is my driving?
*hushed whispers*

My lawyer has advised me not to answer this question.


6. Do you believe in alternate realities?
Hrm. Interesting question. I think yes, but I also don't believe in any way to navigate between them, which makes this essentially a philosophical question.

5. How is my driving?
6. Do you believe in alternate realities?
1. Probably the Sonic one. I've only played that, Columns and the Taz-Mania game.
2. Arm, I guess. Though I'd regret it if I lost an I.
3. No, thankfully.
4. Probably last festivus. And the next one will hopefully come up soon, though the postal strike might slow things down a bit.
5. *makes so-so hand gesture*
6. Maybe. But I feel like it's some sort of weird quantum thing where they are overlapping events and not places to visit, which bums me out, because there are probably some cool ones. No "what if Hitler won" crap, please. Just places where they don't have the Coens so I can sell people Coen movies. How sad is it that my big alternate reality fantasy is a pop culture exchange?

1. Nope, BIO-FAM only
2. Power Walking is like running, except gentler
3. A Transformers: Combiner Wars Chromia. She turns into a light-cycle!
4. Always been a fan of the kind made of Lego. Also, I got a cordless phone from a yard sale that says “#1 Granny” on its screen and I do like that
5. It’s Sterrence o’clock
6. It’s been a month or two; nearest mall is in the next town over and it doesn’t really cater that much to me anymore.

1. Do you have any step-family?
Nope!

2. Do you run?
Not really. I walk a lot, and sometimes I toy with running, but my knees tend to let me know that they'd rather I not, and I don't think it plays well with my ongoing back pain either.

3. What's the last vehicle you've purchased?
Sheds a single tear

4. What is your favourite novelty phone?


5. I say there, Monstrosity, do you know the times?
Regrettably so. (I feel like I'm missing a reference here?)

6. When's the last time you've been to the mall?
Probably last time I went to see a movie, which means that Johnny likely remembers better than I do. Maybe Infinity War? Anyway, I pretty much never visit the mall otherwise, if I can help it. All of my shopping is done online.

6. When's the last time you've been to the mall?
1. No.
2. No. Bad ankles and flat feet. I mean, also I am out of shape but that's what the running is for. Run with the Wind makes it look tempting (despite making it look arduous) but instead, biking is my game.
3. Speaking of! I bought my last bike 5 years ago. Still doing pretty OK, by the standards of the bikes I own.
4. Garfield phone. The official phone of the Ninja Terminator.


5. I feel like helping Owl with some time coding issues is better than any answer I can give.
6. Just yesterday. I still like to do Christmas shopping by hand, if I can, though it is a bit of a walk.

1. Go hiking, swimming, sailing... probably eat pineapples until I could dissolve the toilet with my pee.

2. Besides my Magic: The Gathering cards, I also have full sets of The Wrath of Khan movie trading cards, Frank Frazetta trading cards, and the xXxenophile CCG.

3. Uhhh... Ringo?

4. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

5. Uhhh... Ringo?

6. Not in my house, young man.

1. If you went to Hawaii, what would you want to do there?
Shit. I had something for this, but I can't recall what. I know it came up recently too. Go see volcano-related touristy stuff, I guess?

2. What kinds of cards, if any, have you collected?
Magic the Gathering was the first big one, and then a lot of other CCGs around the same time period, although I was only really serious about collecting Star Trek: TNG and Marvel Overpower.

3. Which is your favourite Bratz doll?
I have no idea.

4. What would make a great venue for a concert that usually isn't one?
Someplace far away from me.

5. What's a good name for a pet dragon?
Newt Get-Rich

6. Mother, may I sleep with danger?
Only if danger wears protection.
