1. What time did you get up this morning?
Well, let me see . . . it was a very involved process - I started at about 8:45 and probably actually got a foot on the floor around 10

2. Diamonds or pearl?
Diamonds, definitely. You have no idea how much I'd love to have a diamond-tipped rotary saw blade or drill tip. Pearls aren't good for much except throwing at people, or perhaps playing marbles with :?

3. What was the last film you saw at the movies?
Well, it depends - how does one define "the movies"? If the cheap imitation theater we have on campus counts, then it's Team America: World Police (******* funny!) Otherwise, probably Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

4. What is your favorite TV show?
I really couldn't say, though "The Simpsons" is probably in the running - along with the 6:30 national news

5. What did you have for breakfast?
Hotel coffee and some stale muffin, not exactly my optimal choice . . .

6. What is your middle name?
Which one? (Ian Ally)

7. What is your favorite cuisine?
Definitely Italian, assuming that is what is meant by this question (I would have thought to answer "pizza"). I have yet to meet an Italian food I didn't like.

8. What foods do you dislike?
Spinach, tofu (except in some kinds of hot & sour soup), cooked mushrooms, straw mushrooms in any incarnation . . .

9. What is your favorite chip ("crisps") flavor?
Salt and vinegar, but I'm not really a chip fan overall

10. What is your favorite CD at the moment?
Tough call . . . most likely either The Big Game (by Acoustic Alchemy) or the Mannheim/Steamroller Christmas Collection

11. Which kind of car do you drive?
8O Car? (yes I know what it is :lach: but I don't have one)

12. Favorite sandwich?
As a single favorite, I'd have to say the buffalo chicken burger from Denny's or Friendly's (chain restaurants), though I'm also a big fan of all kinds of sandwiches - even just the basic ham or turkey with vegetables and mayonnaise.

13. What characteristic do you despise? Closed-mindedness, a.k.a. stupidity

14. Favorite item of clothing?
Can't say that I have one, really

15. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go?
Everywhere :lach: (but I'd start with Ireland, in case the travel budget ran out)

16. Favorite brand of clothing?
Brand? What's this? I really don't see why it matters . . . I just pick whatever fits and isn't expensive

17. Where would you retire to?
It's a little early to be thinking about that! (I'd be happy where I grew up, probably)

18. Favorite time of the day?
Mid-afternoon, but only if the weather is right - not too hot (20-25 degrees C), about 15% humidity, light breeze . . . on hotter days I like late evening, around 9-10 p.m., and when it's cold, I'd say the very early morning, 1-4 a.m. Perfect for stargazing if it's not cloudy - and otherwise, perfect for snuggling in a warm bed :wink:

9. What was your most memorable birthday?
Must be the last one, since it's the only one I remember. Which is kind of ironic, because I would have forgotten that it was my birthday if my mom hadn't reminded me the day before :lach:

20. Where were you born?
Binghamton, New York

21. Favorite sport to watch?
Soccer, with Ultimate Frisbee a close second (but the latter is much more fun to play)

24. What fabric detergent do you use?
Usually Tide, for no particular reason

25. Coke or Pepsi?
There's a difference? I never really noticed

26. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Night owl, definitely

27. What is your shoe size?
12 . . . if it matters for anything :?

28. Do you have any pets?
Nope, I'm not really a pet person

39. What did you want to be when you grew up?
A research physicist (and I still do)
