questions by skrape

1. How are you mentally preparing for your father's death?

can you really do such a thing? if so, i haven't figured out how. my plan is to stick around him while he's still here; i can't think of anything that will help make it easier after the fact, other than knowing i spent time with him while i could.

2. The Den of Sin goes up in flames and you have enough time to grab one thing from the house before it all becomes ashes, what do you get?

my pet snake. i'd feel like shit if i let him die (especially in a fire) because i grabbed a material possession instead, even if it was a box of records.

3. What are 3 things you hope to accomplish with the rest of your twenties?

- start a business
- own 2 rental properties
- finish education of some sort

4. Through the years that I've known you, I've seen a marked change in your driving habits. Do you think they'll continue change over the next five years? Do you still think about things like taking your car out to a track and enrolling in that BMW driving school?

well i guess that happens to any impulsive brat who lives long enough, right? *smirk* (author's note: i almost didn't.) i still drive fast enough to get me in trouble, just... alone, or w/ other solo drivers, and not in traffic. also, i managed to frighten osby last weekend by accelerating to the speed limit in the onramp and not after it, so i guess "change" is subjective.

i hope they'll continue to improve (in terms of skill, if not legality). switching back to rear-wheel-drive after 7 years has definitely been another catalyst for this, by nature of the fact that driving these cars at their limits requires more care and responsibility if you don't want to end up wrapped around whatever's just beyond the end of the curve. (remember shorty's bf sean and the 240 he owned? yeah.)

more than one friend of mine is a regular track visitor, and i will get there when my car is ready for it. i hope to do that before taking a driving school so i can see how much i improve.

5. If you could pass Alex one nugget of wisdom about becoming an adult, what would it be?

invest, early and often.

Bonus question for fun: You throw a party and you can get *anybody* to spin, what's your perfect line up?

jeebus, people... i wasn't counting on having to come up w/ this many questions :P

1. you can dig up, reanimate, and have a conversation with anyone. who are they, and what do you discuss?
2. who, in your opinion, is/was the best SNL - Weekend Update talking head?
3. video or computer game you've spent the most time playing?
4. what's the worst movie ever made? and i don't mean one that you saw and disliked recently- i mean the one that was so absolutely abhorrent you felt 10 IQ points stupider afterward and would describe as "a crime against humanity".
5. what genre of music (any era, any purpose) do you want to learn more about / delve more deeply into?
A Quark of A Different Spin.

Good God I forgot about Sean's fucking car. I remember after he got the mechanical but not aesthetic problems fixed that he locked himself out of the car while it was running with the keys in the ignition. Idjit.
