seen all over my flist...

...and I'm too lazy to answer it multiple times, so here are my answers to everybody. (This particular version stolen from miz_geek.)

1.Your Middle Name: Jones
2. Age: 44
3. Single or Taken: Neither, I'm poly
4. Favorite Movie: Wings of Desire / Der Himmel Über Berlin
5. Favorite Song (a sample) "Wicked Little Town" from Hedwig and the Angry Inch
6. Favorite Band/Artist (a sample): The Runaways
7. Favorite Food (a sample): Macaroni & cheese
8. Tattoos and/or Piercings: 3 piercings in my ears, one virtual tattoo (i.e., I think about getting it, I know what it is, but I haven't gone ahead and gotten it)
9. What is the average airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow? "An African or European swallow?"

1. Do we know each other outside of LJ? (answer varies)
2. What's your philosophy on life? The combination of :
If you can spend a perfectly useless afternoon in a perfectly useless manner, you have learned how to live. --Lin Yutang
and
It is a bit embarrassing to have been concerned with the human problem all one's life and find at the end that one has no more to offer by way of advice than "Try to be a little kinder." -- Aldous Huxley
3. Would you eat fish eyes for me in a trip around the world for money? Um?
4. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest? I keep secrets if I feel like it and/or if someone asks me to. "In your best interest" is not usually my motive for keeping secrets.
5. What is your favorite memory of us? (answer varies)
6. Would you sing karaoke with me? Sure!
7. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: I'm not crazy about making eye contact when talking to people in person.
8. Would you take care of me if I'm sick? If desired and possible.
9. What's your weirdest/most fun/favorite link: http://www.wordsmith.org/anagram/
10. Have you heard any good jokes lately? Share! http://lynxfeather.net/nest/humor/2001/07-01-doglightbulb.html
11. If a surrealist and a post-modernist get into a knife fight, who'd win? An aardvark.
12. Do you think people are mostly good or mostly bad? No, my thoughts on the matter are a fair bit more complicated than that.
13. Would you fly to Paris with me? Doubtful, but nothing personal - I just despise flying.
14. What was the dumbest souvenir you ever bought and where did you get it? A desk plate that says "Chairman of the Bored". I got it at Disney World when my family went there (I was around 10 or 11, and that was pretty much my reaction to Disney World as a whole, except for the skee ball.)
15. If you could change any single event in history, what would it be? Would you change it? I think I'll stay away from that sort of thing. I've read The Lathe of Heaven.
16. What do you wear to sleep? Big Dogs boxer shorts
17. Would you come over for no reason, just to hang out? That describes most of my socializing, so if we were co-located and you wanted me to and I had time, sure.
18. Would you go to a museum with me, if i asked you? That describes most of the rest of my socializing, so sure.
19. If we only had one day to live, what would we do together? If I for sure had only one day to live and was mobile and healthy, I don't know that I would want to spend it with anybody, actually.
20. Will you repost this so i can fill it out for you?I'd like for you to fill it out for me, either in your journal or here, if you want to.

1.Your Middle Name: Syed
2. Age: 34
3. Single or Taken: Um.
4. Favorite Movie of the moment: Casablanca
5. Favorite Song of the moment: "In the Absence of Angels," by...
6. Favorite Band/Artist of the moment: ...Paul Schutze
7. Favorite Food of the moment: Denny's peanut butter pie
8. Tattoos and/or Piercings: None
9. What is the average airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow? Ahem.

1. Do we know each other outside of LJ? Yes.
2. What's your philosophy on life? If all you can experience of whatever the world is is the representation that your mind constructs, then you are the creator of your world and you might as well strive to create the world you want to inhabit.
3. Would you eat fish eyes for me in a trip around the world for money? I can't imagine you wanting me to.
4. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest? It would depend on what the secret was and why I was keeping it.
5. What is your favorite memory of us? My memory fetches according to its own whimsy, so I can't remember most memories of people when cued like this. An enjoyable memory that comes to mind at the moment is you sticking your tongue out at someone when I saw you in person last. It was adorable.
6. Would you sing karaoke with me? Um. It would depend. I'm not that into the karaoke concept in general and I'm not usually comfortable with singing around other people much less to an audience, but it's the sort of thing where my feelings about it might vary quite a bit in the moment.
7. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: I used to put the liquid from jars of marachino cherries into milk shakes when I was a kid. I still have no idea why our family was always well-stocked with marachino cherry jars.
8. Would you take care of me if I'm sick? If it was feasible and you wanted me to, sure. I'm not sure what circumstances would have to collude to make this a plausible scenario, given the geography and so on.
9. What's your weirdest/most fun/favorite link: http://www.michaelkelly.fsnet.co.uk/karl.htm
10. Have you heard any good jokes lately? Not that I can remember. I'm bad with remembering jokes.
11. If a surrealist and a post-modernist get into a knife fight, who'd win?
The establishment.
12. Do you think people are mostly good or mostly bad? I think that most people make decisions that feel reasonable to them in the moment.
13. Would you fly to Paris with me? Doubtful, but only because you just said that you'd be unlikely to be on that flight. :) I'd fly to Paris on my own, though!
14. What was the dumbest souvenir you ever bought and where did you get it? I used to collect patches from places I'd been. Like, the sort of crest-shaped ones. I never sewed a single one on anything, and in fact, I mostly left them in the plastic and stuck them in a box. Eventually I threw them all out.
15. If you could change any single event in history, what would it be? I'd rather not.
16. What do you wear to sleep? Nothing.
17. Would you come over for no reason, just to hang out? Sure! Isn't "just to hang out," a reason, though?
18. Would you go to a museum with me, if i asked you? Yes, although whether I'd spend all the time in your presence at the museum would depend on your patience and approach to museums. I often split up with people and then re-meet up with them later when at museums or art galleries.
19. If we only had one day to live, what would we do together? Well, given that you were just saying you'd probably not spend it with people, we'd likely not do anything together. :) I think it would have to be something jointly wanted. If this also included me having only one day to live, I'd want to spent at least part of it listening to music, with people who I think would enjoy doing so with me.
20. Will you repost this so i can fill it out for you? I don't think I'll post this one in my journal, but you never know.

1. Yes
5. Looking out the window during the brunch at apc San Diego
7. I have always loved maraschino cherries, despite nearly everyone telling me they would instantly give me cancer.
18. I usually like to stay in the same gallery as someone I'm going with, but not necessarily right next to them.
19. I think listening to music would be a good "last day to live" activity.
