It’s The Klingon Dictionary by Marc Okrand

The Washington, D.C. boxed set of Sim City the Collectible Card Game.

My iTunes playlist, and a number of cooling fans, including an air filter.

At around 6:30, I left Sharples to go back to Wharton.

8: Before you came to this web site, what did you look at?

The comments on my last LiveJournal entry.

9: What are you wearing?

My Poodle Hat (“Weird Al” Yankovic’s latest album) black t-shirt, and the cargo khakis I bought in the Philadelphia airport last year before flying to Orlando for a Disney cruise.

10: Did you dream last night?

Definitely. I think I had lost something, or forgot an important event. Emery said I snored a lot last night…

11: When did you last laugh?

While talking about showtunes (in a pretentious accent) with Katie, who lives in the girls quad down the hall

12: What is on the walls of the room you are in?

An abstract hanging covering my closet, Emery’s projection screen (a vinyl shade) with black felt matte border, some Chinese art, an analog clock, a poster containing the key for my Enterprise-D blueprint posters, and two aluminum foil mek’leths and a brown paper bag Klingon head from my Screw.

13: Seen anything weird lately?

JWZ’s animated LJ icons out of sync on the same page… when one of the icons is offscreen (in Safari, at least), it stops animating. I tried to line them up by strategically scrolling up and down.

14: What do you think of this quiz?

I saw the first question about books, and since I still had my Klingon dictionary on my desk after answering ‘s question, I pretty much had to answer.

15: What was the last film you saw?

The Emperor’s New Groove. It was probably about the 10th time I’ve seen it, possibly more. It’s an awesome movie, and if you haven’t seen it, you totally should. Also, I’ve watched 6 Star Trek episodes and 6 West Wing episodes in the last day or so.

16: If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?

A fully upgraded PowerMac G5, with two 21″ flat panel Apple Studio Displays, plus a really kickass projector and screen, plus a really kick ass studio sound system, plus every good 3-D game made for the Mac in the last 3 years. Then I would not work for a year, spend the entire time playing with said system. When I was done, I would replace it all with the latest and greatest, and get a fun robotics job,

17: Tell me something about you that I don’t know:

I’ll ignore my parental units (who do read this), since they know everything. The first time I really slacked off was for my state report on Washington in 4th grade. I didn’t do the Mileage Project, since it looked like it was boring, and tried to make up for it by doing the extra credit projects. It was probably my first B…

18: If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?

I’d get rid of selfishness. That should probably take care of most of the other problems…

19: Do you like to dance?

Nope. I flail limbs everywhere. It was the one thing I disliked about doing musical theater, and at school dances, you’d usually find me hovering around the food table.

20: Imagine your first child is a girl, what would you call her?

Joanna, after my sister. Then my sister could be Auntie Jo.

21: Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?

Definitely less sure on this one. At one point, Blake sounded like a good idea, but now I know a Blake, so I can’t do that… How about Geordi? ;o)

22: Would you ever consider living abroad?

Only if the job opportunity was amazing and involved awesome robots. The culture shock, and just the change from where I’m currently situated would go way outside of my comfort horizon. I need consistency, because I generally dislike change.

23: Will you pass on this survey?

Yup, I’m posting it in my LiveJournal. Thanks for passing it on to me!

Bohemian Rhapsody” from Greatest Hits I by Queen
