Being interviewed

skipernicus got this from werewulf.

1 -- Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2 -- I'll ask you five questions.
3 -- You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
4 -- You'll include this explanation.
5 -- You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.

1) What (in general) appeals to you about books?
I like the mechanics of a book: the way they are stackable or shelf-able, the way pages are bound, the portability. I like paper. I like words. I like stories. They all come together in a book.

2) If you could be any fictional character from a book, who would you be?
Terry Pratchett's Death. No, Trout Fishing in America Shorty. Maybe Sharyn McCrumb's Nora Bonesteel. I changed my mind: definitely Saki's Clovis Sangrail.

3) Why is your son such a giant (cuz hey, he's huge...!) Was it miracle grow or what?
The real question is: why is his sister such a regular girl? I think Jennifer is about 5'6". My family is tall, Brian's family is tall. Christopher will probably be about 6'4".

4) Outside of cheeseburgers, what is the best food?
No way! I am such a fan of foods. I can't name a best food. Beer is food and it's pretty good. Apples. Apples are a very good food because they are not very messy to eat, they are easy to carry around, and they taste great. Plus you can add them to other foods--they are good in salads, or you can cook with them. Add apples to kielbasa and cabbage with some watery vinegar and caraway seeds. Man, that is a good dinner! It's even better the next day. Yeah, with sourdough bread--which is another very good food. Oh, ice cream! Every time I eat ice cream I wonder why it is that I can not just eat ice cream all the time. No other food seems necessary when I am eating ice cream. I can't call it the best food, though, since it makes me poo funny. If you call explosive stinkiness funny. I like veggie sandwiches from the food coop on campus, the day-old half-price ones. There's an unclear system for identifying which sandwiches contain what, but usually anything with a green or blue sticker and any writing EXCEPT a drawing of a fish is extremely delicious. Wasabi peas. Pistachios. Melted cheese. Strawberries. Nope, I can't do it.

5) In your estimation, which of the seven deadly sins is the worst (lust pride envy anger greed sloth gluttony) when worn by others, and which one do you have a particular affinity for?
I think anger and greed are tied for worst place. Since greed probably affects more people adversely, I guess it ranks a little higher. Interesting--I guess the seven deadly sins were originally intended to warn against characteristics that might keep an individual away from God? When I was trying to rank them, I was thinking more along the lines of which sins made an individual less helpful to the rest of us.

Sloth and I are real close.
