1. What intrigues you about people?
Oh, different things about different people. Sometimes it's intellegence, sometimes it's looks, sometimes it's a pair of beautiful eyes, sometimes it's the ability to lead ritual, sometimes it's the just me wondering why they're on the same path I am.
Take athanasios for instance. I'm intrigued by his ability to take on so much responsibility, and to do a good job. I like to try to figure out what he's doing or thinking, too.

2. What's your favorite animal? Why?
Aside from female humans, I presume? The cockroach. Grand survival instincts, intellegence, patience, and a really, really calm demeanor.
I saw one in my house before we closed. It was a woods cockroach, and I knew, looking at him, that he was St. Gulik. I knew right then that I had chosen the right house, and that Eris approved.
Of course, that doesn't stop me from killing all cockroaches on sight, but I always give them a chance to explain themselves and deliver their prophecy first.
(FYI, wood cockroaches don't require an exterminator, since they don't infest houses. They're cool like that.)
3. How many cats do you have and what are their names?
I have two, but Tina also has one. Alexander and Magellan are mine, and Raven is hers. We own a reverse Oreo sometimes, because Alex and Magellan will stand on either side of Raven. You can find pics of the boys on my narcissisitc picture page on my website (labled that by a friend, who said it rocked *because* it was so unashamedly narcissisitc).
Oh, and both answer to "Handsome". Just like daddy. :)
4. What's your biggest pet peeve?
People asking, "Are you really monogamous?" when they know damn good and well I am. But the biggest thing is when they say, "I know you have a girlfriend, and that you aren't poly, but do you think we could ever get together?" That bothers me, because it shows several things I don't like: a lack of respect for my girlfriend; a lack of respect for the choices I've made; and it gives the impression that they think I'm weak-willed, even though I've never, ever cheated on Tina. Not even technically.
5. What's your favorite movie?
Gee. I really, really don't know. Now that I think about it some more, I think that Captain Horatio Hornblower starring Gregory Peck is up there. (You'll probably note that every time I get asked this, my answers change. This is probably because movies have a much smaller affect on me than many other things do.) My favourites tend to be adventures of some sort. Usually starring some roguish anti-hero who is terribly internally conflicted.
