Get your questions on.  I'll be here all week.

I ain't got no fancy gimmicks, sidekicks, theme shticks or mind tricks.  I only got answers.

Yes!

Edit: Technically, I work for a contracting agency who works for the government.  But that's true of most people in my field.

Probably not!

I'd rather not provide too many details here, but it's a major non-military branch of the US.

High standards.

What's your opinion of public libraries?

Love 'em, but I use them less often now that I can just buy books whenever.

Brandon Sanderson's Way of Kings, probably.  I've been rereading The Illuminatus! Trilogy, but it's as convoluted as it ever was.

How did you find MotK?

I joined #shrinemaiden in early 2006.  I wasn't really active on the forums until after the first major wipe.

Quote
How did you become a member of staff?

Just been here a really long time.  Was opped in #sm when we moved to PPIRC, I think.  Then I inherited those rights and became a moderator in an earlier iteration of the forums, forgot to ask for them back in a subsequent wipe, and got them again in another wipe.  Or something.  I'm sure TSO remembers the details better than I do.

Quote

On here?  I mostly just moderate and pay for the forum server.

My style of mafia cannot be taught!  It must be ... felt.

Sanderson's work was heavily influenced by Robert Jordan, IMO, but Sanderson has refined Jordan's tendency towards long-windedness.  On the other hand, I feel Jordan is a bit more varied as a writer.  I've followed the Wheel of Time series since the mid-nineties and it's very dear to my heart, so I try to get others to read it too.  That said, I know full well that Jordan's works are harder to get into.

What's your favourite book to reread every few months, if you have one?

Rurouni Kenshin. <_<;  Actual book-wise, whatever's on hand.  I'll regularly just stroll over to the bookshelf, grab something, and read a few chapters if I'm bored.  Most books have a few exceptionally memorable scenes that I just can't get enough of rereading.

What do you taste like?

Veal, probably.

I imagine Don't Worry Be Happy would fit here, but I'm more likely to listen to something that fits my current mood, rather than try to change it.  If that makes sense.

Firebenders do lightning, right? <_<

Have you actually had a Pon de Ring doughnut?

Yes indeed.  They sold them at the Mitsuwa I sometimes when to when I lived in Illinois. 
Spoiler:
I prefer other donuts.

Edit: I should say they sold what were probably cheap imitations.  I haven't had one from whatever Japanese donut place made 'em famous.

Who is your favourite character in RK?

Where have you lived? Have you moved around a lot, or mostly stayed in one place?

Lived all up and down the east coast, from New England to Florida.  Lived in Illinois for a while as well.  I've spent most of the last few years in northern VA.

Mister Donut seems to be most famous for them, but as you might be able to tell by the name, they are not Japanese.

Brandon Sanderson's
Did you read Mistborn?  (as I am currently reading it now and being a person who is not quickly interested by books, this one got me good for now)

How come your avatar has Sabre riding a lion and eating its balls?

You seem to be more of a stalker type on IRC rather than chatting one. Is this a part of your secret governmental spying tasks?

Your favourite Touhou girl... and why (I won't take "she is cute/nice/ze" for an answer).






And finally, an important serious question: Breast man or Ass man.

What was the last major event to change your life for the better?

Name three people from history, living or dead, that you'd have dinner with and why.

Are you close with your family?

Top five countries you'd want to visit next - go!

It's a nickname a good friend gave me when I was a wee tot, and I've been slingin' it on the internets for many moons.

King Arthur.

Teleportation, maybe.  Saves on gas.

Mister Donut seems to be most famous for them, but as you might be able to tell by the name, they are not Japanese.

I did not!

I generally prefer simpler mixed drinks - rum & cokes, gin & tonics, etc.

Bawls. <3

Nah.

I play more RPGs than anything else, but there are no genres I particularly dislike as long as the game's fun.

What about movies?

Heist flicks and murder mysteries are probably my favorite genre.
