8. What’s your favorite school supply?

Taking the kids to Meg’s and back.  Okay, that’s actually 48.2

11. What’s the best bargain you’ve ever found at a garage sale or junk shop?
My “disco theme party” leisure suit.  It’s the exact same one that Jon Heder wore years later in Napoleon Dynamite.

12. Where were you on September 11, 2001?
Living on S. Lake Avenue in a house that was too big and too expensive in the monthly rent.  Kitty was over, and NPR woke us up with the news.

I like trees you can climb in.  Oaks are high on the list.

14. What’s the most interesting biography you’ve read?
I’ve been trying to find a biography of Emmy Noether that doesn’t cost $200+.  Let me know if you find one.

15. What do you order when you eat Chinese food?
I love me some dumplings.

16. What’s the best costume you’ve ever worn?
Probably the pirate costume I wore for a pirate party.  I’ll have to dig up a picture.

17. What’s your least favorite word?
One I can’t put on this blog on account o’ my family-friendly policy.

State names are nicknames, you don’t get to pick your own.

The Grizzly

20. Describe something that’s happened to you for which you have no explanation.
I should have fallen off a 20 meter rock face and died when I was freeclimbing in college.  It was basically impossible to regain my balance, but somehow it happened.

The Serengeti.

A burrito from Burrito Express.  JVC with Carne Asada, spicy.

The Magic Internet Machine!

24. Which do you use more often, the dictionary or the thesaurus?
Since just about every computer widget has a built-in dictionary and auto-correcting spelling nowadays, everyone would answer “dictionary” if they thought about it.

25. Have you ever been snorkeling? Scuba diving?
Yep, in Catalina, Hawaii, and Australia.  Nope, not ever.
