Hmmmmmm.. lets see..

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Living with the man I love.  All my loved ones safe and healthy.

What do you dislike most about your appearance?
Hmmmm... I'd have to say my weight.  I have a long way to go in that area.

What is your greatest regret?
There are so many.  Some of them to personal.  One example I can give though is not giving my stepmother more of a chance.  She is gone now and there was alot of time wasted with needless fighting.

I always wanted to be able to sing.

If you could change one thing about your family, what would it be?
There is alot here.  More than I can get into.  For starters, making unconditional love a must.

Ok, this is going to sound strange, but survivng the 9th grade, better known as my black year. It was a real bad time.

If you could choose what to come, back as, what would it be?
A white tiger, just cause I love them, they are beautiful.

What is your most treasured possession? (kids don't count)
A china teapot I got when my great gramma passed away.  You can wind it up and it plays Tea For Two.  I remember sitting in her kitchen when she'd be washing dishes. She'd wind it up and sing to me.

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
For me, the lowest time was in 9th grade, as I mentioned.  I'm not sure if that was what you wanted to know or not.

Where would you like to live?
Texas

It's a tie, honesty and a sense of humor

oh, wow, questions. hmmmmm.
*chews the end of his pencil thoughtfully*

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Spending time with Tara. that's EASY!

Which historical figure can you most identify with?

Niccolo Machiavelli. he was as cynical as they come... gee, could that be me? just a little? heh.

Which living person do you most admire?

another easy one - my little brother. i don't know anyone smarter or tougher anywhere.

On what occasion do you lie?

i don't. granted, sometimes that bruises feelings, but i find that it's better to be thought honest and insensitive than sweet, kind, and untrustworthy.

What do you dislike most about your appearance?

i'm too fat.

What is your greatest regret?

regret requires that you think you made a mistake. i think that our decisions and the things that happen to us do so for a reason - besides which, even if you want to, you can't go back and change things that have already happened. i try to look forward, not back.

Which living person do you most despise?

less a person than a group - hypocrites. i don't really care what you believe - that's your business - but don't say one thing and do another. that's reprehensible.

What or who is the greatest love of your life?

Tara, immediately followed by things that go "ping!"

When and where were you happiest?

right now, right here - wherever i am i am the happiest that i can be while i'm there.

Which talent would you like to have?

you mean i don't already?

If you could change one thing about your family, what would it be?

make them go away? except for my brother and his wife, they're cool.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

becoming bullet-proof and indestructible.

If you could choose what to come back as, what would it be?

A thresher shark. i envy their ability to swim at Ludicrous Speed.

What is your most treasured possession? (kids don't count)

i don't really worry about material things, and people aren't possessions.

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?

losing a child.

Where would you like to live?

in a different, much better house in the same place i live now.

What is the quality you most like in a man?

honesty. if i can't trust someone to tell me the truth, what point is there in even talking to them?

What is the quality you most like in a woman?

the same, for the same reasons.

What do you value most in a friend?

how many times do i have to say this, anyway?

Who are your heroes in real life?

randy shugart and gary gordon - you may have seen their story in Black Hawk Down.
irl, they held off over 500 armed somalis by themselves for over an hour in an attempt to protect a downed helicopter pilot. they inserted on the mission knowing that there was virtually no chance of being evacuated, and although they were killed, they left over 100 dead somalis on the field of battle - over 50 to one.
they were posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor - which was richly deserved.

What are your favorite names?
don't really have any - but Tara and i are gonna have to talk about this "Zachary" thing...

What is it that you most dislike?

Lies.

What is your motto?

"What the hell are you THINKING?"

What is the trait you most deplore in others?

Lying.

What is your greatest extravagance?

easy: computer parts. i canNOT stop upgrading, lmao.

What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

"forgiveness." in my book, there are two kinds of things that people do wrong - either they make honest mistakes, or they deliberately try to hurt you. a mistake is irrelevant, and doesn't need forgiving, and forgiving someone who is being deliberately evil? well, it sure worked for Neville Chamberlain in the 1930's, now didn't it?

What do you like most about your appearance?

i don't pay much attention to it so i wouldn't know. Tara probably could, though. heh.

What is your most marked characteristic?

total unwillingness to put up with lies, games, and BS.

What is your favorite journey?

the journey from where i am to where i'm going.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

"what the hell are you thinking about?"

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

hmmmm. that's a toughie... i would give myself the Amazing Psychic Mind-Reading Miss Cleo Powers that everyone seems to think i have so i wouldn't be the last one to find out about things anymore, hehe.

interesting set of questions.
more please.
-Dave

Just did the other one, so some of these may cross over.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

- No such thing. Perfect is an ill-used, misunderstood word. Really, I think perfect equals boring. Heaven is supposed to be perfect - an unchanging space with no room to grow...no thanks. I'll just take happiness as a state that has its hurdles. Honestly - right now, getting my career on track and maybe thinking about 'settling' down. As settled as I will be anyway. Oh no, I've started rambling.


Which historical figure can you most identify with?

-Katherine Mansfield. (NZ writer in the early part of the 20th century who struggled to find herself, and her career, and her place in the literary world, mostly in London).

Which living person do you most admire?

- My admiration doesn't come easily, sigh - I only become close to people I admire - so, you know who you are. No one famous...I don't know them.

On what occasion do you lie?

-Strictly a situation-based thing. I didn't tell the whole truth to my ex on occasion because it probably would've given him a hernia.

What do you dislike most about your appearance?

- I don't look like Liv Tyler. Dammit.

What is your greatest regret?

-hmmm...I have several. The greatest? Not trying harder to get my mother to stay in the same city as me so I could look after her.


Which living person do you most despise?

-Hm. I could be noble and say Saddam Hussein or Osama..but no, it comes down to bitterness and I'd have to say my ex-fiance.

What or who is the greatest love of your life?

-That is a thing of hope at present.


When and where were you happiest?

-Before the age of seven.

Which talent would you like to have?

-I wish I could resume my cut-short piano lessons. One day - I will.


If you could change one thing about your family, what would it be?

- Hah. Oh no, honestly I can't start this.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

- Leaving home at an early age and staying left.

If you could choose what to come, back as, what would it be?

-A cat.

What is your most treasured possession? (kids don't count)

-my bookshelf and its contents.

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?

-feeling like I don't belong to anyone, or to anywhere.

Where would you like to live?

- In my own home.

What is the quality you most like in a man?

-Intelligence.

What is the quality you most like in a woman?

-Intelligence.

What do you value most in a friend?

-Honesty.


Who are your hero's in real life?

-Um. I just don't really have any. Other than my best friend's who make a sustained relationship seem possible.

What are your favorite names?

Girl - syria, emily
boy - nathaniel, nicholas

there are more but I won't go on.

What is it that you most dislike?

-people interfering with my space.


What is your motto?

-I'll survive, I always do.

What is the trait you most deplore in others?

-an inability to confront themselves and their self truths - good or bad.

What is your greatest extravagance?

-don't have the money to be extravagant. Prolly chocolate.

What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

-Piety

What do you like most about your appearance?

-hair, eyes

What is your most marked characteristic?

-stubborn outspokeness.

What is your favorite journey?

-growth

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

-god I'm depressed. Haha.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

-see above.

Lauren – you DO have incredibly YUMMY lips!

What is your idea of perfect happiness?

I have to go along with K on this one. “Perfect Happiness” is an oxymoron in my book. I could quote you a lot of stereotypical ideas, but I know in my heart the truth – no matter where I am, I will want more; to be more, have more (knowledge, growth, etc., not money), and to find the next challenge. without that, there is no purpose to life.

Which historical figure can you most identify with?

Dante? No, seriously, I would have to say I have no idea. History has never been my strong suit.

Which living person do you most admire?

(Do you have any easy questions in here?) I admire anyone who can maintain hope and strength in the face of adversity while maintaining a sense of humor. to be able to stand tall and fight the forces at work in your life despite how much it throws at you is something worthy of admiration.

On what occasion do you lie?

On the occasion that it’s necessary? No, really – I have too poor of a memory to lie. I’d get caught out too easily.

What do you dislike most about your appearance?

I think I’m too skinny.

What is your greatest regret?

There are a few true regrets in my life, but they all center around the idea of me growing (up, haha) so I can’t really call them regrets since I learned from them. I would not be who I am were they to not have occurred.

Which living person do you most despise?

Again – people who are the inverse of those I admire: people who wallow in themselves for an extended period of time (hey, we all have to wallow sometimes) and use life as an excuse not to live.

What or who is the greatest love of your life?

I’ll go for the safe answer and respond to the ‘what’ portion of this question: writing. period.

When and where were you happiest?

I can’t define a ‘happiest’ time in my life. there have been many scattered places/events/times when I’ve been very happy. but I can’t judge one against the other, because they’re all special.

Which talent would you like to have?

I’m with the majority here – I would have LOVED to have been a singer as well as a writer! But… uhmm.. the shower is about the only place I’ll be famous in that arena.

If you could change one thing about your family, what would it be?

the drama, the maneuvering, the almost political byplays for attention, rally points, etc. it’s like a constant soap opera (which explains why I don’t hang out with my family much)

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

Again, have to say living to see 28.

If you could choose what to come, back as, what would it be?

Me. I’m ok with that. Of course a few superpowers would be nice…

What is your most treasured possession? (kids don't count)

My mind, my imagination. All the physical possessions: “stuff ‘n things” – not worth caring about really.

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?

depression. it is obviously a lot more complicated than that, but it’s taken me ten years of experience to understand it even as well as I do, so I’ll leave it at the short version.

Where would you like to live?

somewhere warm, near the ocean, with lots of trees and beautiful women serving margaritas. heh

What is the quality you most like in a man?

integrity.

What is the quality you most like in a woman?

blue eyes (hahahahah)

What do you value most in a friend?

friendship.

Who are your hero's in real life?

the above people who I admire. honestly. people who can face down tribulation and tell it to go to hell. I love, admire, and respect those people. they are my heroes.

What are your favorite names?

Arianna
Hyo
Jasmine
Kamla (really love that name, but don’t tell her that)

What is it that you most dislike?

Stupidity.

What is your motto?

“I’ll get enough sleep when I’m dead.”

What is the trait you most deplore in others?

Stupidity.

What is your greatest extravagance?

Books and movies, order dependent on mood.

What do you consider the most overrated virtue?

Empathy.

What do you like most about your appearance?

Aside from the one I can’t mention here ,My eyes. They’re PERFECT. heh.

What is your most marked characteristic?

My wit (or lack thereof if megan’s telling the story)

What is your favorite journey?

This one.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse?

hmmm… I would have said “crystal,” but now I have a fear of using that word… so I’ll say “soon.” “sigh” is not too far behind.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

where does the “if” come in. if there’s something I don’t like about myself, it is in my power to change it. if I don’t, then I have no room to complain about it, do I?
