2. I have them, though mine aren't terribly pronounced.
3. I'm pretty open minded about music. I don't think there's a particular genre I'd like to see gone; just a certain level (or rather lack) of quality to the writing.

3. Beets, lima beans, and Milli Vanilli.

1. Angry? Not sure that's the right word, but I've gotten pretty fed up with certain people I deal with on a daily basis.
2. Something unusual I saw today while riding home on the bus, which I will not go into detail about, because it might not be considered polite, given the nature of the subject.
3. Not regularly, but I have taken to writing the occasional journal entry in the back of my latest writing notebook, whilst at work.

2. A nice, long conversation with a close friend of mine, I think.
3. Lately, I don't really feel happy at all. sorry.

1. A million years from now, if we're not dust, we'll have cross-bred into so many sub-species that we won't even be recognizable as a single species.
2. I don't think I'm interested in contributing to our future gene pool, at least at this time, so my input isn't really valid.
3. I suspect not. We'll have a lot to answer for, after giving the world Will Farrell.

I like carnivorous plants and cacti, but I'm far from a typical woman and you know it.

1. I'd probably try and talk about indie games and other special interests of mine. Or try to be funny. Or both. Of course, the only time anything remotely like that has happened, the person in question was already happily partnered, and likely wouldn't be interested me in that way in a million years.
2. Depending on how comfortable I was with said employer, I'd either ask questions about what was going on or stew alone at my desk and quietly worry. Of course, if I'm about to be replaced, the latter is far, far more likely.
3. Option B sounds way more attractive to me (and is similar to my current situation, except I'm collecting regular employment insurance benefits instead of disability) but as you know, I've never had a spouse. The closest thing I've experienced would be the disapproval/disappointment of my parents, but they aren't directly affected and have been pretty supportive of me regardless.

  1. If it would be good for me in the long term? Yeah, I'd go for it. I'm still living with my parents, so I have the luxury of not having to worry about money yet.
  2. Two? Wowsers. Hard to imagine. Let's see... the one that looks like more fun. That's really the only factor, though "fun" is a complicated thing. I guess in order to be fun there needs to be constant room for growth or else it gets tedious, and it needs to be something that I think I can do well if I try but not too easy. So I'd need to weigh one job against the other to figure out which would end up being more fun.
  3. I'm not sure what the significance of asking about "women" rather than "people" is, but I show off on my musical instrument at every possible opportunity so I guess I'd be amused and reassured to see other people with the same compulsion.

1. Stand By Me
2. I'm a Doctor Who fan, so time travel stories come in many flavours for me.
ETA: I finally thought of a time travel story that really does stand out in my head; the Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes TV series on the Beeb.
3. I've enjoyed some revenge-based stories, but I'm not really into revenge, so I can't really name a favourite. Sorry.

2. Two Wednesdays ago at the intermissionless performance of Everyday Rapture in New York. I would have had to climb over 20 people to get out. By the time the show was over, my eyeballs were floating. Next time I won't have that second glass of wine with lunch.

1. eBay, particularly for big expensive musical instruments, but probably also for electronics and other kitschy things for my apartment.
2. These days, I read blogs instead of magazines. Some of my current favourites are Shakesville, Tiger Beatdown, and video game-related things that friends of mine write.
3. Being true to oneself yields better results than trying to please everyone, which is a good thing because I don't have a clue as to how to please everyone.

1. Tell me about a time when something you thought you wanted wound up not really being what you wanted after all.
2. In what kinds of circumstances do you find it relatively easy to make friends?
3. Why is it okay to use "guys" to refer to people of all genders, but not to use "gals" (or some other feminine equivalent) to do the same?

1. Once when I was a kid I nagged at my mother for a pair of pretty shoes. And to my surprise she bought them for me. I felt so ashamed since I never really wanted them, I just felt like nagging.
2. I make friends with people relatively easy since I'm not the least bit shy. So the answer is any kind of circumstance. But making "close" friends is a whole different matter. In that case I have to have the possibility to communicate with this person over time and slowly see if there's that connection I need.
3. I haven't got a clue. In my language we don't use the term "guys" that way.

1. When it comes to making decisions, how do you go about?

1. I try to imagine myself in either outcome, and choose the scenario that makes me happiest. Then, I come up with all sorts of rational arguments to justify my decision to others.
2. How did you know? Usually, I react by not being able to sleep properly because I'm obsessively thinking about the change and what it will entail.
3. Atmosphere > Influence > Salary. All of the above are important, though. I need enough money to pay the bills, but I can live with not being filthy rich. I need some amount of creativity in the job, but since I do so much creative stuff outside of work anyway, I don't have to have absolute control. However, I refuse to spend 1/3 of my day in an atmosphere that makes me feel like crap.

---

1. Have you ever been successful in negotiating a higher salary/pay? If so, how'd you do it?
2. Have you ever been successful in influencing the creative direction of a project? If so, how'd you do it?
3. Have you ever been successful in improving the atmosphere around you? If so, how'd you do it?

1. I used to be fascinated with a number of historical periods, but as I have gotten older, I find that my interests have narrowed largely to the 20th Century. That was really my century, and I'm struggling to find my place in this one.
2. The way we've learned to manipulate magnetism to store the work of a lifetime into an object I can hold in my hand.
3. Chip modded brain, so I can 'learn' to do whatever it is I'm being paid to do without the tedium of years of specializing.

1. BOOOOOOORNNNN TO BE WIIIIIIIIIIILD!!! No wait, I guess the answer to that has to be writing, novels, graphic novels, songs, video games, whatever, so long as I'm telling stories.
2. There were some rush jobs I had to do a few days ago at work, and had to get it all out of the way before I could sneak upstairs and deal with nature.
3. To be perfectly frank with you, I am wearing a pair of brown walking shorts, and not a stitch otherwise... and the shorts were sort of an afterthought when my wife woke up.

3. What's one important lesson you've learned so far in your life?
1) Mac store? Nah, I'd probably just order a laptop and a Cintiq tablet online. Maybe a shiny soundcard and a midi control keyboard and some music composing/editing software for recording digital music, something I've always wanted to try my hand at. And a fricking dummies manual for the software. Man, am I ever tired of buying gear I can't operate easily.
2. Architectural Digest? Heavy Metal? Penthouse? No, to tell the truth, I don't really read magazines very often, and when I do, they're usually rock music magazines, these days. Though I do own copies of the aforementioned titles as well.
3. To be honest, I'm not sure I've learned anything important yet. Everything I thought I knew is sort of in question these days, down to and including who I am and why I'm here. But I think the one maxim I've managed to largely stick by that hasn't been diminished too much over time is, Tell the Truth. Not easy, and I'm not always capable of it, but I find it makes life so much clearer if I stick to the truth. My favourite people are all scrupulously honest, and I want to be loved by these people, so it serves my own selfish purposes to be straight with them as much as possible.

1. I would tell you, but it would only complicate things, and perhaps make you cry (and no, I'm not referring to you, darling).
2. On the internet? Hmmn. Well, in my twenties, I was pretty good at making friends in musical settings, but these days, I'm hit and miss with new groups of people.
3. Same reason it's common in English to refer to humanity as mankind or simply man, and I'm sure it's gender politics related, sadly. I've played with that concept a little in my fiction (you'll remember MetFall), but I don't expect it to change any time soon. Sad, really.

1. Poorly.
2. I usually freak out, go quiet, and hide until the worst of it's over.

Or, you know, jump in and lead the charge. I'm bipolar.
3. Truthfully, I'm not sure how I rank those. the most important thing about any job is whether I feel competent in the role. I know that sounds trite, but it really is an extremely important part of my ability to take a job. if I don't feel I belong there, I get very upset. As you have probably been noticing lately.

1. No, I don't believe I've ever received a non-mandatory raise working for anyone other than myself. the closest I came to that was when Don Ferrigan told me to ask for $25/hr, instead of my usual low-balling. That was an eye-opener. Mind you, if I ever worked for him again, I'd ask for more.
2. I'm kinda pushy when it comes to creative direction, as you well know. I sort of smother my partners in sheer creative output, unless I feel like the project has gotten away from me, in which case, I usually get depressed.
3. I left a job that was crushing my soul, and wrote perhaps the most important novel of my life to date. Then I screwed it all up by getting hired at a job I hate more than I ever did the tool shop.

1. 'More Like Space' by Seefeel.
2. Don't know much Beatles (sorry everyone) but I'm interested in their tape loop experimenting and things. So... something off of Revolver?
3. Boards of Canada, Cocteau Twins, Atlas Sound, and many others.

1. Work. When I go through particularly stressful periods at work and get behind on stuff I sometimes have trouble sleeping. To be honest I both enjoy and hate the responsibility and sometimes have trouble leaving it at the office, even though I know there is nothing I can do about it by worrying!

2. If you gave me enough meringue I would probably gorge myself to death. I'd like to pretend I'm joking about that but I really think it might be true!

3. Donuts. I absolutely HATE them, the consistency, the texture, the smell ... urggh!

2. Damn you! Actually it doesn't really matter, 'cause for anything else I can get delivery or sit at the restaurant.
3. I'm living in the 3rd country of my lifetime. So I'd probably go to a previous one I liked better.

1. Self-confidence. I lack it.
2. I don't know if I'm good at making apologies, but I find myself doing it all of the time.
3. I default to apology whenever anything goes wrong that I feel even tangentially responsible for. No idea if it's the right thing to do, and no idea how to stop myself.
