1 - What happened on the worst date you ever had? Hmmm... I've not really had that many so this is a short list. Probably when we got stuck in London after the trains had stopped running had had to walk halfway across the centre of London before we could find a taxi rank that had cabs in it.
2 - What is your favourite word in the dictionary? hmm.. I don't really have one. I prefer elegant sentence structure and phrasing to specific words. I like the word Dick Van Dyke says in Mary Poppins though - Indubitably.
Too apparent to be doubted; unquestionable.
3 - If you knew you'd be financially taken care of for the next year, what would you do with your time or where would you go? Stay with Avi and help her out. Travel around the US and far east probably as well if I could, but staying someplace is much nicer.
4 - They say Alexander the Great kept a dagger and a copy of the Iliad under his pillow. What would be under your pillow? My arm. Um.. I dunno. What an interesting question. Hmmm... I'm a great reader, I almost eat books (example - I read Harry Potter and The Goblet Of Fire in less than 6 hours). So maybe a book, though I don't know which one. I probably wouldn't sleep with anything under my pillow actaully - too uncomfortable. Next to the bed though? Sure.
5 - Are you sure you can't come visit us when you are in the states? Certainly not on July 4th now I'm afraid. 26 hours of driving is a bit much (as you know).. and it would not really be practical. Its a shame, it would be nice to see everyone - but its not going to happen right now. Maybe see you at DragonCon though!
