Yet another meme... but I kinda liked this one. Thanks to Jenny Nichols for posting it to Facebook (or at least posting it where I could see it.)

  • What is your favorite sit-down restaurant? Max's Bistro (mmm... sweet potato fries!)
  • What food could you eat for 2 weeks straight and not get sick of it? pizza

  • What do you like to put on your toast? what toast?... ok, if I'm going to eat toast, I want butter

  • What color of cell phone do you have? silver (the cheapie Samsung that T-Mobile gives you for free when you get a contract with them)


  • Are you right-handed or left-handed? Right
  • Have you ever had anything removed from your body? my gall bladder
  • What is the last heavy item you lifted? boxes full of food from our fridge when it went out last Friday night & we had to move it all over to the church so we didn't lose any of it
  • Have you ever been knocked unconscious? no... but I did have a fellow actor knock me on my rear end on stage with a roundhouse punch to my jaw because he thought that the stage punch didn't "look real enough"


  • If it were possible, would you want to know the day you're gonna die? No... though a general hint might be nice
  • If you could change your name, what would you change it to? I don't think so...
  • Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000? A thousand bucks is a lot of board games - I'd pull a Chad Carter & give it a go. (Extra points for those who can name what city Chad drank hot sauce in... and remember (ewww) what happened about 2 hours later.)
  • Favorite holiday? Christmas
  • Favorite day of the week? Friday (the first day of my "weekend"
  • Favorite month? June is good (my birthday, Braeden's birthday, our wedding anniversary) but April is also good (Collin's birthday, the Gathering of Friends)


  • Missing someone? the Gulf Games crew
  • Mood? I'm cheerful with a side of nervous (about getting everything done today)
  • What are you listening to? Steve Taylor's "On the Fritz" album - yep, I got this album back in the summer of 1985 - it still rocks
  • Watching? I watched part of the 1st season of "Bones" on DVD last night - does that count?

  • Do you smile often? yes - I'm married to Shari & have two wonderful boys... Collin told me a couple of days ago that he wants to grow up and be just like me - "A Chinese noodle." How can I not smile?!


  • Do you always answer your phone? Not always, but I feel badly about it
  • It's four in the morning and you get a text message, who is it? Someone with a wrong number

  • Can you do a pull up? One pull-up, sure. Don't look for more... and stop asking about my physical fitness - it's making me feel all 90 lb weakling. I'm just waiting for someone to come along and kick sand in my face and steal my girl.

  • Have you ever been given roses? Nope... but I've definitely given roses.
  • Current worry? Getting our family financially solid.
  • Current hate right now? Pin the tail on the opposition politics - it took both political parties, an avalanche of greed & a national obsession with immediate gratification to get us to this point economically.
  • Met someone who changed your life? Obvious answers: Jesus, Shari Jo & Braeden & Collin; Less obvious: Keith Monaghan, Connie Grosse, Tim Formby, Fred Raney, David Nunn, Chris Herndon, Jim & Sheridyn Williamson, David Foster... note: I don't mention anyone from the last five years 'cuz the whole "changed my life" thing needs time to figure out who really made an impact
  • How did you bring in the New Year? staying up with Braeden to play board games... then waking up Collin to watch the ball drop on TV
  • What song represents you? I pick three: "The Finish Line" (Steve Taylor), "Little Boy Heart Alive" (Andrew Peterson), "Hang My Head & Cry" (David Mullen)
  • Name three people who might complete this? The usual suspects: Paul & Lorell... and someone else
  • What were you doing at 12 AM last night? reading Kurt Busiek's "Astro City: The Dark Age, Vol. 1" - excellent graphic novel, btw
  • What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up? if I punch the snooze button, I get to lay here for an extra 7 minutes...
