The backlog was so massive I had to break it up into two separate posts...

1. Not at all. I do appreciate the moral values some try to teach, but unfortunately religion has been used as an excuse to conquer or impose beliefs on others far too often.
2. Agnosticism, if you can call that a religion. It's atheism without the arrogance, imo.
3. I don't mind attending religious ceremonies (because there's always a reason why I'm there, whether that's a funera, wedding, baptism, ...). I just don't participate in any of the rituals.

3. (And I'll pass along one of Jelena's questions too: ) Is religion important to you?
1. Lack of time and priority of other hobbies.
2. I never feel creative, that's my burden.
3. See earlier.

3. What does religion mean to you?
1. Some buskers at the Meir in Antwerp. They were poor. Pun intended.
2. I hate it. I like to stay up late and sleep in.
3. It's complicated. Though it can have its uses and enrich people's lives, it's often abused and mostly leads to trouble down the road. Personally, I have no use for it.

2. Does it bother you that you can not do the things anymore that you took for granted in your youth?

3. When you started your first job, did you feel the responsibility to take care of yourself financially as a burden?
1. Yes. But that's not because I'm getting worse at adventure gaming, but more because I have less time to spend playing, so I can't be bothered any more to keep trying and keep pixel-hunting and keep using everything on everything until I find the solution. Look for a walkthrough, save hours.
2. Nah. As you grow older your interests shift, so you more or less naturally move away from them. And I'm still too young to be slipping physically, so I can't say anything about that. Ask me again in 20 years.
3. Of course it was a burden. It's still a burden, and it'll always be a burden. I hate working and rather spend my time doing things I enjoy. But the paycheck is necessary to survive, so I do what is needed.

2. If the narrator of your life spoke, whose voice would they have?
3. If your life had background music, what would it be?
1. Omniscient and in the third person. A bit like Emma Thompson's narration of Will Ferrell's life in [url=http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0420223/]Stranger than Fiction[/quote].
2. Alan Rickman - British, distinguished, excellent pronounciation, and a voice you could listen to for eternity. Besides, Morgan Freeman was busy doing everyone else's narration...
3. Mostly prog-rock la Porcupine Tree, and completed with a little Counting Crows.

3) So you like going outside when it's snowing?
1. No, I'm more of an indoors kind of person. You know, indoors, where it's dry.
2. No, I'm more of an indoors kind of person. You know, indoors, where it's cool.
3. No, I'm more of an indoors kind of person. You know, indoors, where it's warm.

1. I don't know. Normal? I can't see the way I walk, you know...
2. I don't like it. Mosly because I move like an ironing board.
3. ...sit behind my computer playing video games, or sit on the couch watching movies.

-----------------

New questions:

1) Wedding vows: do you prefer them traditional, non-traditional, personal, etc. and why?
2) Wedding vows: short or long? Specify.
3) What is the best moment for a speech (or other intermezzo) at a wedding party?

Bonus question:
- Guess what I've been writing today.

I know. Sorry about the tl;dr nature of that double post.
Never intended to build up such an amazing backlog of questions to answer...

1. Personal all the way.
2. Short. About haiku length, if not actually a haiku.
3. After everyone's already left.

---

1. How important are weddings to you?
2. How important is marriage to you?
3. Write me a wedding vow in haiku form?

1. I walk like I have to get somewhere before I die.
2. I don't do it as often as I used to.
3. Get work done.

Bonus question:

1. I don't.
2. The shorter, the better. Anything longer can only come back to haunt you later.
3. I liked giving the best man speech at my buddy Scott's wedding. It was almost a stand-up routine.

1. I was never partial to weddings.
2. More so than I'd like.
3. This is our big day
This may be our only great day
I pray you won't leave.

1. That depends on what it is and how much insight I have in wether it can work or not. I can be pretty persistant but only if I think there is a good chance it might work.
2. Both are fine with me.
3. Yes. People grow apart sometimes. That just happens and is regrettable but it's life.

1. What is your deepest wish?
2. If it were granted, what would be the first thing you'd do?
3. After how long would you get bored with the new situation?

1. It's impossible to give a general answer, but here's an example: I tried juggling with three balls and gave up after five minutes.
2. I'm basically a 'team person'. In my current work I work together with a law clerk and a district court judge. We each have specific assignments, but we're all very dependent on each other's work. I get to both work on my own but within a team.
3. Oh yes.

1. My deepest wish is that my children both will have fulfilling lives with love and happiness.
2. Feel thankful.
3. Never

1. What's your current favourite starter?
2. What's your current favourite main course?
3. What's your current favourite dessert?
