1. Where would you most like to visit that you haven't visited yet?

latexpussy's new house, in Thailand.

2. If you had to choose one of the world's "mainstream religions" to practice, which one would you pick?

Catholicism. Hands down.

3. Did we freak out your brother, that one time, when we met you and him and your mum for lunch?

Dunno. I don't *think* so, but you'd have to ask red_sput yourself. If he reads this, I hope he comments :)

4. At this exact moment in time, how many people do you love?

To count them would be impossible. But I would commonly name five women, as well as my family. There is also my Grove, each of whom I love in their own way. There are old friends, male and female. There are members across ADF, and there are some people I work with. As I noted in the other entry, love and lust do not necessarily require one another, though there is very little lust where there is no love.

However, I admit that in general, I would point to those five women and my family as people I would most commonly use the word "love" with, and I'll use it freely with them. For others, I wouldn't generally use it for various reasons.

5. You told latexpussy that sex was not that big of a concern for you with regards to dating. Could you envision yourself having a completely non-physical relationship with someone who you meshed with very well intellectually (assuming your relationship also did not allow you to have other partners)?

Oh, hell yeah. I think I might actually prefer one in some circumstances. You know, not knockin' sex or nothin'. . . :) But my relationships have never revolved around it, nor has it been something that I have found important in them. The way I veiw sexuality in relationships is complicated, though. It's a way to get closer, but it's not the only way, nor is it the ultimate way.

6. What is the least cool hobby you have?

Collecting state quarters for my ex-girlfriend

7. Do you dislike dogs?

No, I dislike having to come home every 4-6 hours to walk them :) I actually love dogs. I do believe that there's a picture of me with a certain dingo floating around the 'net. . . I'm sure someone will be so kind as to post it.

8. What's the best thing a friend has done for you in the last month or so?

Made me realize, entirely unintentionally, that I was over Tina.

9. Have you ever avoided reading a book that you were supposed to read for class, a book club, ADF, or suchlike, and then acted as if you had actually read it (discussed it, reviewed it, wrote a paper on it, taught it, etc.)? If so, what book?

Wuthering Hights. Totally. And once I did that, I've done more: my library is full of books I just haven't had time to read.

10. What was the last movie you saw? Was it any good?

The Davinci Code. Actually, I'm about to go out and see it. I'll update when I get home with an actual note as to whether it was any good or not :)

11. Do you consider the town you currently live in to be your "home town"?

Yes, I do. But it's not my only one :)

12. What do you consider to be your best physical attribute?

druidkirk appears to be very fond of my ass, and Tina always liked my legs. Me, I always liked my grin best.

13. If you suddenly were forced to stop doing the whole ADF thing, what would you do with all your free time?

Get a second full time job? Maybe go out and actually ask a girl out? Learn to sing?

Yeah, I'd probably just get a second full time job. I spend enough time on ADF to do that.

14. Is there a point that you can imagine at which you would say to yourself, "Okay, MJD, you've completed everything you were meant to do or really wanted to do on this earth, now you can die happy."? If so, what would you have just done before making that statement?

Yes. I have this feeling that if my time was right now, I wouldn't have any real regrets. The only thing I'd really like to do is copy all the documents I've written onto DVD's, send one to the ADF Office, hand one off to tesinth, and hand one off to my parents.

15. Thoth, or Rider-Waite?

Waite. Totally. (Strangely, I had the exact same thought when I saw this on latexpussy's LJ)

Well, I sort of knew what was coming. I don't think I was freaked out more than just amused that mom was with us too. I tend to get a very quiet, deer in the headlights look when meeting new people for the first time. Hence why I am not very good at making friends:-p However, I was sort of freaked out by those fried mushroom things that you guys adored so much:-)

Oh, but they were so good!

I figured you probably weren't weirded out much :)

Haha. I should make you elaborate. It was my finely-crafted ankles, wasn't it?

And that icon? Brilliant. :)

But still no hair.

Turns out that The Davinci Code was sold out. So the most recent movie I saw was actually Amelie, which was magnificent.

Here are your questions (ran out of time to come up with them before we tried to go to the flicks).

1. Do you budget to travel, or does it always take some quick thinking to make it work?
2. Do you fall into a camp of religious thought in general? Is there a thinker who's really influenced the way you see religion?
3. Do you think that the way people have difficulty accepting your family situation will eventually change, or do you just hope for the best from those who know you?
4. Are you a romantic at heart?
5. Sixteen men on a dead man's chest: freaky, or an interesting night out? (Gods, I have no idea why I asked that: It's got to have something to do with my association with you and pirates.)
6. Do you have any hobbies that you usually engage in while waiting for something else to happen?
7. If you could be an animal for a day or two, what would you like to be?
8. Does friendship indicate that the person will always be there, no matter what, to you?
9. What's the last bad book you read?
10. The originals of a lot of movies degrade over time, and many are now lost to history because of it. Which movie, old or new, do you think is most important to protect so that others in the future can see it?
11. Somehow, I have missed this: Where do you come from?
12. When you look in the mirror, what do you see?
13. How do you choose what to volunteer on?
14. Everyone wants to be something when they grow up, some people even after they grow up. What is it you want/wanted to be?
15. Plate tectonics: reality or just a theory?
