CRAZIEST OR FUNNIEST PERSON YOU HANG OUT WITH?: Joe

FAVORITE PLACE TO GO: California

FAVORITE PERSON TO GO THERE WITH: Dustin

FAVORITE PEOPLE {IN GENERAL} TO HANG OUT WITH: There is no generality that encompasses the people that I hang out with, other than the fact that they are not fake, mostly. They’re not going to put on a front to impress their peers – they’ll be themselves and not worry about it.


IF YOU COULD MEET ONE PERSON IN THE WORLD, WHO WOULD IT BE?: how long could I chat with them for?


ARE YOU INTELLIGENT?: So I’ve been told. I’ve seen many people that are far stupider than I. Conversely, though, I’ve seen plenty that are leagues ahead of me.



THE CRUSH SIDE

DO YOU BELIEVE IN LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT?: nope. See survey #2

DO YOU HAVE A CRUSH?: No… haven’t had one for a while now. (That one before lasted like a week – found out she had a boyfriend. No use in liking her if there was no chance, eh?)


DO YOU HAVE A BOY/GIRLFRIEND?: nope.. one could gather that from the last repsonse above

IF YOU COULD GO OUT WITH ANYONE IN THE WORLD, WHO: I assume this means "going steady," if you will. Sad fact is, I don’t know any girls whatsoever that I feel I could be in a working relationship with. For me, they are ever so hard to come by, like drops of water in the desert. So I can’t give any names…


THE PAST SIDE

WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER MOST ABOUT 1999?: Moving to Fargo. NDSU. ugh

WHAT'S THE FIRST THING YOU THOUGHT OF WHEN YOU WOKE UP THIS MORNING?: 8am? Shit, I was going to sleep in!


WERE YOU "COOL" 5 YEARS AGO?: Hmm… 1995. Maybe, maybe not. I was OK with the way I was, so that was good enough for me. What other people thought didn’t concern me a whole lot.


DO YOU THINK YOU WERE A NICE PERSON OVER THE PAST 5 YEARS?: I hope so…


DOES IT MAKE YOU SAD TO KNOW THAT YOU CAN NEVER GO BACK IN TIME?: To some extent, yes. There are things that I would try to do differently. Like take coding more seriously when I was in my learning stages (10,11,12 yrs old)… I could be a god at this by now. But some things I would never change, of course.


THE FUTURE SIDE

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS?: Hopefully doing some other work in the Computer Science field other than grunt coding. House! Nice car! My own business maybe! No financial worries! I can do that much, I know. I’d love to be married, too, but … that’s a hell of a lot harder to achieve than success in my career, and I don’t see that one happening, to tell you the truth.

DO YOU LIKE CHILDREN?: somewhat. Older, the better. Depends on their personality, too. Little hellions suck.


FUTURE SON NAMES: ? – to be decided later

FUTURE DAUGHTER NAMES: ? - tba

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY OCCUPATION WHEN YOU GET OLDER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?: Well, something in the Computer Science field. Or Meterology… Storm Prediction Center, baby! And maybe something in astronomy, too…


WHAT'S YOUR DREAM CAR?: Ooh! Aston Martin DB7 Vantage!!! Or the kick-ass Chrysler 300 Hemi C

WHERE DO YOU PLAN ON LIVING AFTER GETTING OUT OF SCHOOL?: Hmmm… Northern California, Oregon, maybe even here in North Dakota if it’s not Fargo… yech… Fargo blows

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GET MARRIED?: honestly, I’ve never thought about it. Outdoors though, definitely. Acutally, Scotland or Ireland would be very cool

DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?: uh, no

WHAT DO YOU WEAR TO BED?: underwear. That’s it. Can’t wear shirts or pants, drives me crazy. I’m sure you really wanted to know that, too, eh?

MOST ROMANTIC THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO YOU: I’ve never had anything romantic happen to me, ever

IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ONE COLOR: silver

ON A SCALE FROM 1-10 (1 LOWEST) HOW ROMANTIC ARE YOU?: I really don’t know, I’ve never been offered a great chance to do something romantic. Hopefully I can report back someday…


IF YOU COULD HAVE A TATTOO, WHAT AND WHERE WOULD IT BE?: Some celtic symbol, perhaps, on my back…


ANY PIERCINGS...WHERE?: I’m not one for piercing my body.

WHAT'S ON YOUR WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?: Posters! Zeppelin, the Floyd, Austin Powers, a huge Waterworld poster (thanks Shannon!), various maps (ireland, europe)

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN SKINNY-DIPPING?: no, sorry

DO YOU TYPE WITH YOUR FINGERS ON THE RIGHT KEYS?: yeah. Typing on the right keys really aids in the correct spelling of words. Seriously, though, no. none of this "home row" business for me. I’ve got my own odd style, 10 years in the making, and I can type rather well….


WHAT'S UNDER YOUR BED?: A lot of stuff. Boxes mostly, empty ones, for my electronics stuff

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN CONVICTED OF A CRIME: Not yet
