    Hmmm, I'd have to say Neil Gaiman. On account of his imagination is only SLIGHTLY more messed up than mine.

    What was the last work of fiction you read?

    Fiction? I haven't had the time to read much lately, but that'd have to be some random Pratchett novel I reread in between reading gigantic books about Russian history for my essay. The latest NEW work of fiction I read... I dunno. Only one that springs to mind is Njal's Saga, an old icelandic saga.

    If you were a car, what kind of tree would you want to run into?
    Ash.

    is it really cold in canada?

    Sometimes. At the moment, it's kinda meh. Where I'm at, in Toronto, we don't get the real cold spells. The coldest it's been lately is about -20C, maybe -30C with windchill. For you silly Americans with your deviant systems of measurement, that from roughly 0F to -20F, as the lowest it gets. Normally, we're closer to -10C, which is about 14C.
    In Toronto, we don't get as much snow as the rest of Canada. It's cause we're on the lake.
    We do, however, get REALLY REALLY HOT. Last summer, we got a high of 45C! That's 113F for you measurement deviants. And it's humid too, because our wind generally comes off the lake.
    I dunno about the rest of Canada, but that's life where I live.


    what is your favorite color?

    Purple. Pay attention

    abney park or dr steel?

    Being as I've never listened to Dr. Steel, gotta say Abney Park.

    While a great band, I wouldn't say their the best punk band. When it comes to writing pop, I think the Buzzcocks have that beat, or Blondie. When it comes to just writing good music, you know my love of Television. I think, while a great punk band, they didn't do any one thing any better than all of the other bands. However, I'm not sure I can name the 'best punk band'. Probably because the range, from the Sex Pistols to the Clash to the American and Canadian bands.

    Vodka, straight.
    Or something involving cranberries.

    I... don't really have THAT strong a dislike to it. But dislike it is. I will glare at you if you call my Gwynney.

    Do you like Winnie The Pooh?

    I am neutral on the subject of Winnie the Pooh

    Why (not) ?

    Mostly, because my parents never read my any Winnie the Pooh. I just never was aware of the stories or characters until much later, so I don't have that nostalgia that makes me want to learn more. I know OF the characters, but they just don't remind me of my childhood like they do for others.

    Yes, 3 times. Once to France, once to France and Belgium, once to England

    If so, what event really drove it home that you weren't in your own country anymore?

    Well, in my Continental trips it was the whole 'nobody speaks english' thing. Luckily, we all spoke enough French to get by. In England, it was when we realized that even the cheap food was better-tasting. The tomatoes especially. We had a full english breakfast at some charming, middle-of-nowhere inn in the Cotswolds, and the tomatoes were just mindblowingly good!

    What place/s do you most and least want to visit?

    Most? Hmmm... Barcelona? Barcelona sounds nice. That, or somewhere in the East. India, China, Vietnam. Thailand. One of those places.
    Least? I dunno. Scarborough. Or, as it's rightly termed here in the downtown core of the city, Scarberia.


    What have you recently discovered or worked out about yourself?

    I'm not very good at putting my own experiences into writing. I was supposed to be writing a Theory of Knowledge paper based mostly on my own experiences and interpretations of them and stuff, but I ended up writing more about other examples, which hurt my mark.

    In what ways have you changed since you were half your current age?

    Well, back then I was just a slightly nerdy, slightly musical, out-of-shape kid. Now, I'm still kinda out-of-shape, but less so. I put on a little bit of weight, so I'm not skin-and-bones skeleton anymore. I'm much more musical than I was there, but also much less nerdy or geeky.

    In what ways have you stayed the same?

    I still have the same history obsession. I have only added onto my huge depth of knowledge about random historical periods and events.

    What are you most proud of?

    Even though I don't like boasting, I'd say I'm most proud of my musical talent.

    What are you most ashamed of?

    I'm always, actually, slightly embarrassed by my intelligence. I know that, at school, I'm always going to be top of my class, often leagues above any of my classmates. And that's a barrier between us that I don't like.

    What is your greatest achievement?

    I won 3 awards at school this year, for excellence in History, French, and Physics!

    What is your greatest regret?

    Hm... It's always a hard one. At the moment, I can't think of any one situation that I REALLY wish I did something different.

    What do you consider the best and worst of all your senses (that is, what do you think is the best and worst smell, taste, etc)?

    Alright!
    Sight. Best thing visually? Probably some impressionist paintings, actually. Maybe some Group of 7? I do like Tom Thompson. Worst? Those goddamn bright black-and-white stripey things, when they're really bright. Black and white patterns, very bright, make my eyes ache.
    Smell. Best smell? Most food! Kensington Market: the smell of the store Global Cheese, the smell of the House of Spice, The smell of the hot-house cafe. shhhh
    Worst smell? Really strong-smelling flowers.
    Taste. Best Taste? I give up on this one. Can I just say 'food'? No? Ok, so I was at a really fancy French restaurant called l'Auberge du Pommier, with my French class. For the first course, I chose this wonderfully exquisite sardine dish. Had 2 sardine fillets on top of some greens, with a vinaigrette over it. Perfect mix of flavours, and the sardines were sooo flavourful, and not at all overly salty. Perfect.
    Worst taste? Not really 'taste' per se, but I cannot STAND the texture of broccoli. Eugh.
    Best touch? Soft skin.
    Worst touch? Something really rough and abrasive and prickly.
    Best sound? I'm going to be deviant here and say the Holocaust portion of a My Bloody Valentine show. I've never been, but I have a live cd, and it is absolutely mind-blowing. My mum's been, and she says the best bit is where the sound causes all your clothes to vibrate, while still on you.
    Worst sound? A rake on a sidewalk. Gives a shiver up my spine just thinking about it.

    Eh, I'm not picky.

    What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?

    Loyalty, and big-ness. I want a bear-dog.

    What is the square root of Pi?

    I avoid doing math outside of school, on principle. I aim to always misfile my taxes.

    What's your favorite OOTS strip?

    Difficult. I'd have to go with this one, for sheer emotional... emotion.

    What's your favorite Erfworld strip?

    Erf, I dunno if there's really one single strip that really wowed me. It's more so the constant quality that I love across the board, for that one.

    How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?

    I dunno. I don't think of my internet persona as being very different from my real self.

    Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?

    Loved one. Not really much of a decision, for me. Though afterwards, that's when the problems come.

    What is your favorite word?

    Defenestration. Because somewhere, at some point, someone had to say "You know what we really need? A word for throwing someone out of the window," possibly as a subtle threat.

    What is your least favorite word?

    Don't really have a least favourite word.

    What makes you enthusiastic?

    L'histoire. Et les langues. Et l'histoire des langues.

    What disappoints you?

    When I bake something and it doesn't taste good.

    What sound do you love?

    I mentioned this earlier.
    The Holocaust section of a My Bloody Valentine show. The song is called You Made Me Realize. It is also mind-splittingly loud

    What sound do you hate?

    Rake on the sidewalk.

    What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?

    Considering my current profession is 'student', anything but.

    What profession would you not like to participate in?

    Don't really want to work in retail.

    1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?

    Yes I have. Several, in fact. Well, maybe more than several... I don't really remember. The one that stuck with me for the longest is probably the one to be the most embarrassed about, and that would be Misty from pokemon.

    2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?

    This is actually a bit of a tough one. I think I'll have to come back to it.

    3. Roses or orchids?

    ... I have honestly never really thought about it all that hard...

    4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?

    This answer might sound a little like a commercial. Have you ever read or heard of a book called The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson? It basically says in order to achieve a goal it's the small things that you do on a daily basis which, compounded over time, are what leads you to achieve that goal. There's a lot more to it than that, and if you think yourself an ambitious person, I'd highly recommend giving that one a read.

    5. How did you get to be so awesome?

    lol! I'm gonna have to answer this question with another question. I hope that's alright by you all, but since this is my interview, I'm gonna do it!
    How did you come to know that I am so awesome? Does my reputation precede me? (ok, that was two questions. Sorry.)

    6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?

    Ten years ago I was 14 years old, so I suppose I would have just finished grade 9 and be headed to high school. I don't so much wish I knew something back then, because then I wouldn't be where I am now. Rather, it would be interesting to see where I would be if I had read the book from answer 4 back then.... Yeah...

    7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?

    ...

    8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?

    I don't really have an answer for this.

    9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?

    To explain this would be far too extensive for me to try. Let's just say I want to create a legacy for my future kids and for generations to follow, and I am in the process of doing just that.

    10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)

    Better than lolcats! (sorry everyone)

    11. What super-power would you want to use to stop Godzilla if he was attacking where you live?

    Telekinesis. The only super power I want is telekinesis. With a creative mind, it could do so much more than what has been portrayed in movies and such.

    12. Beards or babies?

    Seriously? Is that even a question? Babies.

    13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?

    I often make up words by combining two other words. Sometimes those words have similar meanings, other times they aren't related at all. One example would be 'presactly' (precisely + exactly)

    14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?

    Hmm... The root word looks be 'plenty'. Whilo- while in the state of, -ulent as relating to the time of lent.
    So, having plenty while having given it up for lent. I suppose that would mean that a person who is whiloplenulent is someone who is using/eating/doing whatever it is that they gave up for lent.

    15. What's an old-fashioned song or short schmaltzy bit of poetry that's stuck in your head?

    I don't have one stuck in my head.

    16. Favorite mythological monster?

    Bob!

    17. Enough of this! I am your arch-nemesis! Where will we fight our final, climactic battle?

    Our final battle shall be atop the Cliffs of Insanity!

    18. In #17, above, did you defeat me? If so, how?

    I rolled a natural 20.

    19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?

    Variety is the spice of life.

    20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?

    I have no idea...
    wow... This takes a lot more effort than I expected it to. Next set:

    What do you like to collect?

    Magic cards.

    How many avatars do you have?

    Two that I use on this site, several others on other sites, but I'm not all that active on those anymore.

    Are you ever coming to GenCon?

    Eventually, probably. I go to local conventions, but GenCon isn't local.

    What type of chocolate do you prefer?

    Milk.

    What type and how many pets do you have?

    One cat. Her name is Tenshi.

    Do you enjoy watching the Weather Channel?

    Pfft, no.

    Are you running to something, or from something?

    Neither. I am at a brisk walk towards something.

    The kind that brings the biggest smile to the smallest person in sight.

    What question would you like to be asked?

    First question that comes to mind: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Ironically, that was more difficult to type than I find it to say...

    What traits do you look for in an ideal pet?

    There isn't really an ideal set of traits, I don't think. The only thing that matters is forming a bond of companionship.

    What is the square root of Pi?

    I'm gonna go with 2.449489742783178. I wonder if anyone can figure out how I got that answer...

    What's your favorite OOTS strip?

    Didn't even have to think about it. It's a tie. Just give me a moment to find them... Oh, here we are: #41 and #367. There are many, many others worth mentioning, but that would take way to long, and you may as well just go reread the whole thing again.

    What's your favorite Erfworld strip?

    Much harder to answer. I've only read through book 1, and only once at that. Can't say I really have a favourite.

    How does your ITP persona relate to you in real life?

    I don't know. I try to be me as much as I can. The internet is it's own filter though.

    Sadistic choice time! You must choose to save either the life of your most loved one or the lives of a large group of strangers. Which do you choose?

    The unfortunate truth here is that I would be too indecisive to choose to save either, and both would die.... Honestly though, without having the experience of making that choice I couldn't say for sure which I would choose. While that is true, it is a cop-out of an answer, so I pick love!

    What is your favorite word?

    Sniglet. It's a real word, I swear. Look it up.

    What is your least favorite word?

    I am absolutely sure that I have one (at least), but I can't think of it right now.

    What makes you enthusiastic?

    LIFE!

    What disappoints you?

    Procrastination. More than anything else, the results of not doing what I should be doing is what disappoints me, and sadly I do it often.

    What sound do you love?

    Children's laughter.

    What sound do you hate?

    Others in pain.

    What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?

    Answering this would lead me into a rant. I think I'll pass.

    What profession would you not like to participate in?

    See above.
    Wow, that was a lot of questions. 50 of 'em. Oh yeah, I said I'd come back to one.

    ghost_warlock's #2:
    What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?

    I am me, and that's one thing that I've never shied away from. I'm proud to be able to say that. I've never changed to try to 'fit in' or to 'be cool'. It is true that being around different people can bring out different qualities, but it's always me. Never faking it.

    Blue. Sometimes red.

    Favorite fruit?

    Kiwi.

    Favorite ice cream?

    If it's just ice cream, chocolate. I do like stuff mixed in with vanilla though, like a blizzard from Dairy Queen.

    What is your theme song?

    Uh...

    What is your alignment?

    Lawful Good. I don't often play characters that are in the corner alignments, though I am in one myself.

    What is your Magic: The Gathering color?

    White and green are my more commonly used colours.

    What is the meaning of life?

    Life is not a destination, it's a journey. If in the end you have everything you want but it cost you everything to get it, you don't really have anything.

    What are your thoughts on:

    Love?
    Friendship?
    Freedom?

    These are everything. Everything else pales in comparison.

    I'd have to ask one of my friends that...

    ... what?

    Either water or air.

    I have no idea...

    Are you part of any other online communities?

    I play Diablo on battlenet. Does that count?

    What fictional character do you most identify with?

    The first one that comes to mind is Peter Petrelli, though I doubt he's actually at the top of the list. Warren from the Sword of Truth series is up there too.

    Socks: Yes or no?

    Itchy. Oh, so itchy. No socks when given the choice.

    What’s your pony name?

    I don't have one, and it will stay that way.

    Do you know any Playgrounders in real life?

    A few, but they are all inactive or lurk.

    What is the highest compliment you have ever received?

    There are people whose lives have so been impacted that they would no longer be here if not for me. To hear them say that is the greatest compliment that could ever be given.

    What is the highest compliment you can imagine receiving?

    Nothing beats the above.

    What do you want to be when you grow up?

    I am grown up. I am a mentor and a leader.

    What’s your favorite greeting?

    I don't really have one.

    Your favorite way of saying goodbye?

    Same as above, though I often use g'night when saying bye in text.

    What’s your favorite smilie?

    The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 10 characters.

    Is Babelfish correct in the translation of your Japanese sentence as
    "I am recognized Japan the filter which is done. So the [ji] [yo] [zu] the [ri] increase it is still." ?

    If this is true...whut?

    Babelfish does a pretty awful job with Japanese in general. In it's defense though, it would read a bit easier as わたしはにほんごをすこしわかります。でも、まだじょうずじゃありません。Minor grammatical differences though, and I'm at a loss to how The Fish managed to come up with that first sentence o.O

    More on track:

    Do you have a favorite period in feudal Japanese history?

    Favorite of the three unifiers?

    If you could only do one thing in Japan, what would it be?

    1. Have you ever had a crush on a fictional character? If so, who?

    I had a crush on Starfire from the Teen Titans cartoon for a while. Probably others that I can't remember too.

    2. What is one thing about yourself you're the most proud of?

    I dunno. The fact that I have great friends, probably.

    3. Roses or orchids?

    Orchids.

    4. What sustains you, keeps you going every day?

    Besides oxygen? Hope.

    5. How did you get to be so awesome?

    I'm awesome? People tell me that, but I really don't get it.

    6. Where were you ten years ago, and what do you know now that you wish you knew back then?

    Hmm... Ten years ago... I was probably swimming at the local pool or something. As for something I know now that I didn't know then... Probably not to drink buttermilk. Yuck.

    7. If the human race vanished tomorrow, leaving only you and one other person to keep you company, who would you want that person to be?

    Probably my friend Quinn. We may be able to patch things up then, and we can keep each other smiling anyway.

    8. Who is one person who died before you were born that you'd most like to speak with?

    Probably, like, Albert Einstein or something. Or the guy who thought of sliced bread.

    9. When your life comes to an end, how do you want to be remembered/what do you want to be remembered for?

    I want to be remembered as someone that people could come to, when they needed a friend, a shoulder to cry on, just someone to listen, whatever.

    10. Ga! These questions have taken a turn for the depressing! Quick, what is your favorite lolcat!? (Bonus cookies for posting a pic.)

    13. Have you ever made up a word? If so, what is that word and what is its definition?

    Flarg: To catapult a cute animal at someone.

    14. Define the following word: whiloplenulent?

    Whiloplenulent: An alcoholic elephant.

    19. Do you prefer the silly questions or the serious ones?

    The serious ones make me think, the silly ones are silly, I don't think I have a preference.

    20. Why did you decide to submit yourself to these torturous, probing questions?

    I thought it'd be fun.

    What do you like to collect?

    I used to collect trading cards, and rocks. Now I sort of collect buttons.
