1. Do you mustard?
Assuming the verbing of the condiment means "enjoy using mustard" yes, from plain yellow to all sorts of seedy concoctions.
2. Choice of carbonated beverage?
Seltzer or Blenheim's ginger ale, ideally from 1982. The current stuff is still good, but memory is that it used to be sharper.
3. Do you own a gun?
No.
4. Whiskey, tequila, or vodka?
Gin.
5. Hot dogs or Cheeseburgers?
Vegetarian alternatives.
6. Favorite type Of food?
I'm not sure. I don't tend to frame things as favorites or not.
7. Do you believe in ghosts?
Agnostic: less likely to find plausible poltergeist and spooky ghosts, more likely to be sympathetic to glimpses of a different time or visitation by a passed family member. The "white lady by the road" is perhaps a tipping point in my willingness to consider: the frequency of the motif leads me to believe it's something other than a ghost.
8. What do you drink in the morning?
Tea
9. Can you do 100 Pushups? In a row?
No. Probably not cumulative in my life.
10. Summer, Winter, Spring, Or Fall?
Yes.
11. Favorite hobby?
Not having favorites. Wait, that's not really a hobby.
12. Tattoos?
I imagined getting one after my first year of grad school, but the place i went to on South Street in Philly depressed me with the prices for stock images. So, no.
13. Do you wear glasses?
Yes.
14. Fears?
I've been recognizing fear as an emotion more. I don't know how much is the political landscape or moving on from having learned more about anger. But i wouldn't identify some persistent driving fear.
15. Nickname?
Yes.
16. Three drinks?
Tea, water, coffee.
17. Biggest downfall?
Where curiosity switches to procrastinatory escaping.
18. Rain or Snow?
The snow here in NC since returning from California has been nice: a few snow storms that actually have a nice blanket for a day or so (or more!) but then it's melted and gone. Nothing like that one year in Philly where ice and snow made getting around miserable for a month.
19. Piercings?
Simply for one pair of earrings.
20. Age?
Middle, probably. Although i wonder if i will have the vitality to enjoy a long one.
21. Are you moody?
YES.
22. Favorite vehicle ?
Well, my heart was broken by a Jeep wrangler that turned out to be a pile of repairs. The Bonneville
with a V8 was a glorious machine for the cross country drives i made in it. I think keeping the Ranger for high clearance purposes and getting something very energy efficient for most driving around may be environmentally responsible.
23. Kids?
None.
24. Favorite color?
Again with the favorites!
25. Employed?
Yes
26. Can you whistle?
Yes
27. Where were you born?
Alabama.
28. Favorite movies?
I think even if i did favorites, i wouldn't have a favorite movie. I am not as excited about rewatching movies i've seen as others seem to be.
29. Ever Been Arrested?
No.
30. Surgeries?
Not what are usually considered surgeries. There's a standard screening procedure that's showing up on my chart as a surgery, though. I think it will be my third?
31. Religious?
I'm not sure if answering "Quaker" is a yes or no.
32. Shower or Bath?
I've moved from preferring baths to showers, except on cold winter Saturdays when i have a book i can read in a steaming tub.
33. Like gambling?
No.
34. Are you reliable?
Not as much as i would like to be.
35. Broken bones?
An arm as a child.
36. How many tv’s in your house?
One.
37. Worst pain ever?
Interestingly, my mind responds with when i had a very high fever from pneumonia. Not pain in the usual sense, but that's been the worst.
38. Do you like to dance?
Erm, i enjoyed Contra dancing but the community seemed very bonded. In some lifetime i might have enjoyed more folk dancing, but not this life.
39. Are your parents still alive?
Yes, and one grandparent.
40. Do you like camping ?
Yes, although now that i have woods right outside, i am far less motivated.
