1) Yes, I'm married.
2) To be a writer and an astronaut.
3) Whistling.
4) I hope it would be hard cider, preferably the stuff made from pears, which is the shiznit.
5) Probably guacamole. I eat an awful lot of tomatoes and potatoes, though.
6) The last book I eyeballed was Nine Stories by J.D. Salinger, but more recently than that I listened to a recording of Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court.
7) Leo.
8) My earlobes are pierced. I have a tattoo of the rose from The Little Prince on the small of my back.
9) I sing to myself when I'm alone, or think I'm alone, little descriptions of whatever I'm doing or about to do. This can be embarrassing when it turns out I am not, in fact, by myself.
10) Of course.
11) Hockey.
12) Mostly optimistic, but I have negative spells when a series of bad things happen, or sometimes just because my blood sugar got way too low.
13) Probably freak out because I hate being stuck on elevators. If the lights go out I will lose my shit.
14) I'll tell you sometime, but not in a public forum.
15) My subconscious is obsessed with zombies.
16) Not anymore, unless you want to count Alan.
17) Impromptu celebration! As long as you don't show up crying or something.
18) I knew you online first so I already had a pretty good idea of who you were when we met.
19) Scary.
20) I would make it impossible for me to blush.
21) That really depends on the circumstances - I like to think of myself as the partner in crime, but if I thought you were going to hurt yourself, I'd probably be a huge wet blanket.
22) Green.
23) No.
24) I honestly don't care. I don't really like soda very much.
25) Pay my parents back, and put the rest towards a trip someplace awesome.
27) My favourite place to hang out in Concord is probably my friend Mike's house, because there's always some sort of revolving party and usually I can get in on some Rock Band action.
28) I do, despite simultaneously believing they're probably impossible. I absolutely can't defend my belief in ghosts. It's dumb. But I met one once. Which I don't generally tell people, because it makes me sound crazy. So there it is.
29) Read.
30) No. A little. I like the judicious application of profanity for comedic effect.
31) The misuse of the word "literally."
32) Mercurial.
33) I generally find sentimental stuff really tacky and annoying, so my idea of romance is to drive down to the gas station when my husband expresses a craving for a fountain coke, stuff like that. I don't think most people would think that was romantic. I am a sucker for Hollywood romantic comedies, though.
34) Honestly, Halifax.
35) Occasionally.
36) That seems redundant...

Now you must tell me about the ghost you met.

(I think I feel the same way about ghosts. Except that our old apartment had one. He was harmless -- ignored me and Jeff, liked to play with the cat, and banged around in the basement. We saw him from time to time -- just a dark shadow that would dart from room to room. What's weird is, it wasn't the slightest bit scary or creepy -- I actually miss the ghost. He was... sort of comforting, I guess? Such a benign presence in the house.)

You almost died once?!

Hey, thanks for glossing over the 'arrested' part!

In 2001, I had surgery to ease my Sleep Apnea. Unfortunately, I needed a tonsillectomy, UPP and reshaping of my upper palate. Owie.

After the surgery, It took four tries to bring me back from the anaesthesia. Sometimes I still have dreams where there is nothing but blackness, and I can hear the nurses talking all around me.

Oh, I was going to ask about that too, but the almost dying part distracted me! (You were arrested??)

Oh no, for that you're going to have to actually buy me that pint!
