Hot chocolate (but I'd prefer tea (non green) )
Have you had snow yet
Almost never, in the Bay Area.
Favorite G-rated SF Halloween costume?
Practice safe lunch
Actually, yes, BART trains are remote-controlled, so there's no justifying paying operators $100K/year just to open/close the doors
Some contraption that didn't work because there was no wind
Something over a Columbia graduation gown
Spicy Italian sausage
All of the above (except greedy 6-figure BART fatcats)
Practice safe lunch
The Manila Film Center
Banghar Fort, India
The White House
They're all interesting places, but I doubt that any are haunted.
When you go into the country around where you live and see wild flowers, how many can you name (excluding grasses )
All of them
Some of them
One or two
None, not even the purple ones
Depends on which country I'm fairly good with Northern California flora. Not sure about England
That's why I said:
Middle East, though they're all rather wide-ranging areas
Of those you've never studied, which subject(s) would you most like to study?
Engineering. Mainly so I can build robots to do my bidding.
Your laugh is...
loud and boisterous
witchy and cackling
mousey and squeaking
quiet and hissy
Rather giggly and juvenile, occasionally switching to loud and boisterous mode.
A combination of all the above.
Favorite rendition of Janelle Monae's "Tightrope?"
My vid from Friday night
Appearance on DWTS
Appearance on Ellen
The actual music video
For the most lucid rendering of her song - the appearance on Ellen
For sheer fun - your vid

What's the best thing about the place in which you live? (Could be indoors, could be outdoors.)
The sun/beautiful sky.

Easiest subject for you in school:
Trades (home ec/shop)
Social studies / languages / math
Full Moon on the Quad
2014 Olympic champion:
I predikt Kim. I would prefer Carolina or Mao. Akiko would be shocking . Ashley a sign of a very dismal competition. Lipniskaya winning would officially kill my interest in the sport.
Most important part of skating:
body line and positioning
edges and flow
technical jumps and spins
Technical jumps and spins voidzz.
Best dance craze of the past:
The Mashed Potato
The Harlem Shuffle
The Macarena, if only because it made a presidential candidate (Al Gore) look even more of an idiot than he already was.
New VX safety video?
Will grate fast if you're a frequent flier
Not worth flying VX because effective $ spending threshold to achieve VX Elevate Silver is more than the equivalent 2014 PQS threshold on UA or other carriers
than the equivalent 2014 PQS threshold on UA or other carriers
Dancing With The Stars
So You Think You Can Dance
I'm sorry, I have not watched either...unless you include a smutty clip of Svetlana Khorkina from the Russian version..
Do you have a favorite composer?
yes, it is _________.
Kinda sorta. Different people for different days. Today's is ___________.
No. How can you quantify the unquantifiable?
yes, it is __________. Mostly based off of skating programs
No. Not a fan.
yes, it is Tchaikovsky. Mostly based off of skating programs
Rachmaninov, long predating anything I've watched from skating.
This performance of his cello sonata?
Really needs to get his teeth fixed
Olympic torch in space:
Any mission into space is interesting, but simultaneously I wouldn't step outside my front door to see the Olympic torch
Any skeletons in your closet (no necessity to reveal what it/they are)
Yes and I'll take the secret to my grave
I'm an open book so NO
There's things I don't really share. The fact that I smoke, drink, and flirt with boys for example are not known to, say, my parents. "Skeletons" seems to suggest repression though and I am not a particularly repressed person...
Do you know how to play Poker?
No. Card games aren't my thing.
Olympic bronze medallists' freeskates since 1992 (the performances on the night, not just the skater you liked best )
1992 - Nancy Kerrigan
1994 - Chen Lu
1998 - Chen Lu
2002 - Michelle Kwan
2006 - Irina Slutskaya
2010 - Joannie Rochette
Easy. Chen Lu's Butterfly Lovers was legendary. (Funny how I happily ignore the UR jumps ) I'd put Joannie in 2nd and Chen 94' in 3rd. The rest of them were crap.
Same question, with silver:
Midori Ito -- Albertville
Nancy Kerrigan -- Lilehammer
Michelle Kwan -- Nagano
Irina Slutskaya -- SLC
Sasha Cohen -- Torino
Mao Asada -- Vancouver
Butterfly Lovers was indeed legendary. Artistically the best of the night.
Midori the green girl
Puccini or Joe Green?
Puccini. And, re: #917, NOTHING ELSE but
Favorite UMBS lines to use in torpedoing someone icky coming on to you?
"What's the deal with your Asian fetish? You like 'em meek, submissive, love-me-long-time? Oh, wait, you're looking for a wife."
"Why, thanks for the compliment, but you're a lawyer, why would I want to work for you? Lawyers are always somebody else's b**ches."
"Oh, that explains it, you're from LA originally, no wonder you like the Marina [superficial douchebag neighborhood of SF] so much."
"Wow, that's interesting, but hold on one sec, I just gotta go to the bathroom."
awesome work chap
San Francisco in the winter
San Francisco in the summer??
