The Marriott Marquis in Atlanta over Labor Day weekend. Okay, it was room service, but it was just the two of us alone in the room, and I thought it was romantic.....
Do you regret losing your virginity to who you lost it to?
If you could go back and change one thing what would it be?
I'd go to my teenage self and warn him about a certain aspect of my personality.
Name of your first grade teacher?
Tina Roach at the New Rochelle Academy (a since-closed Montessori school).
What do you really want to be doing right now?
Right now I'm waiting for drewshi to show up and record my bit for the first Chronic Rift podcast, as well as some lines for The Dome, so I'd rather be doing that. *laughs*
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Either a writer or an actor. Yup.
How many colleges did you attend?
Just the one: Fordham University, the Rose Hill campus.
Why did you choose the shirt that you have on right now?
It's a Farscape shirt, and I need to start on the script for #4 of the Farscape comic tonight.
What are your thoughts on gas prices?
It frankly boggles my mind that anyone would even consider voting Republican for a lot of reasons in 2008, but one of the biggest is the fact that gas prices have gone up so far so fast under this administration full of people with ties to the oil companies.
If you could move anywhere and take someone with you where would it be?
To a nice house within NYC with terri_osborne.
First thought when the alarm went off this morning?
I didn't set the alarm, so there were no thoughts then. *grin* My first thought when I woke up was, "Hi, Aoki!" because she was standing next to me on the bed....
Last thought before going to sleep last night?
The dialogue I was considering for the opening of #4 of the Farscape comic.
Do you miss being a child?
Not as such, no, though my childhood was pretty good.
What errand/chore do you despise?
Changing the litterbox, which I don't actually do that often.
If you didn't have to work, would you volunteer?
I can't imagine a circumstance under which I didn't have to work....
Get up early or sleep in?
Sleep in, obviously. Why do you think I went freelance in the first place?

Bugs Bunny, with Daffy Duck a close second, and Dr. Orpheus (from The Venture Bros.) a closer third.
Favorite thing to do at night with a girl/guy?
Anything, as long as it's with Terri.
Have you found real love yet?
When did you first start feeling old?
When I turned 35 and all the body parts stopped working right.
Your favorite lunch meat?
What do you get every time you go into Wal-Mart?
I don't go to Wal-Mart because a) they're evil, b) they don't have them in New York City, one of the many reasons why NYC is the greatest city in the world, and c) did I mention they're evil?
Beach or lake?
Lake. You don't get sand in your clothes at the lake.
Do you think marriage is an outdated ritual?
Hardly, since I've a) been married and b) am doing it again next year.

Not anymore. I co-owned a co-op with marinarusalka when we were married.
Favorite movie you wouldn't want anyone to find out about?
If I didn't want anyone to find out about it, I wouldn't post it here, now would I? Silly wabbit.....
What's your favorite drink?
Cowboys or Indians?
Indians, 'cause this land was actually theirs before we stole it.
Who from high school would you like to run in to?
Well, I still see drewshi and jafinnola regularly, and there are others I'm still in touch with. Hmm -- of the people I don't see or communicate with, I'd say Dorina DiLullo, since she was a good friend, and she wasn't at the 20th reunion two years ago.
What radio station is your car radio tuned to right now?
Don't have a car, and even if I did, I wouldn't listen to the radio unless it was for traffic or for a baseball game. When I rent I use either CDs or, if the car has a jack, my iPod.
Sopranos or Desperate Housewives?
Never seen an episode of the latter and saw every episode of the former, so take a wild guess. *chuckle*
Worst relationship mistake that you wish you could take back?
I've made several with Terri...
What famous person would you like to have dinner with?
That I haven't actually had dinner with? Probably Aaron Sorkin.
Indoors or Outdoors?
Why choose? Both have their appeal.
Have you ever crashed your vehicle?
*sigh* Yes. Let's see, there was the twit who hit me when she ran a stop sign in Queens and smashed the grille of my 1977 Ford Pinto, there was the time I accidentally rear-ended the car in front of me on the long line for the Mass Pike toll booth in Sturbridge, and there was the time I took a turn on Moshulu Parkway in the Bronx too fast in the rain and my car did a dance on the divider, chewing up the undercarriage. These were all between the ages of 19 and 22.
Have you ever had to use a fire extinguisher for its intended purpose?
Nope. Or for any other purpose, if it comes to that.

Do you go to church?
Only if there's a wedding or funeral or some other occasion that's being held there.

Neither. I'm quite happy with both.
