Because I can't get enough of these, apparently...

1. Who was the last person you held hands with?
 my grandmother

2. Do you like it when people play with your hair? Usually, but it really depends on the person. I've had strangers randomly come up to me and ask (or not ask) to touch my hair. They end up playing with it and that just gets awkward.


3. Do you believe in luck? I believe in possibility

4. What about miracles?
 Yes, but in the way that a tiny acorn can become a mighty oak kind of miraculous.

5. Do you think there is life on other planets?
 YES!

6. Do you still talk to your first crush?
 No -- we were 5 and he moved away :(

7. What do you do when you wake up?
 Hit snooze, then cuddle with kitties.


8. What do you say during awkward silences? "So, how are you?" (even if I have already asked them that question several times)

10. If you're being extremely quiet what does it mean?
 If I've just entered a place, it means I'm assessing the situation. If I've been there for a while, it means I'm content.

11. Do you smile at strangers?
 Yes

12. Trip to outer space or bottom of the ocean?
 Outer Space!

13. Have you done anything recently that you hope nobody finds out about?
 Yes (no, it wasn't illegal)

14. Ever wished you were someone else?
 Not anymore

15. Ever been in love? 
I love and have loved but "in love?" No :(

16. Ever broken someones heart?
 No

17. Ever had your heart broken? Yes


18. What should you be doing?
 Working (oops!)

19. Who was the last person you cried in front of?
 My mother

20. Go-to book you recommend to strangers: "Assassination Vacation" by Sarah Vowell

1. Who was the last person you held hands with?


A client.

2. Do you like it when people play with your hair?

Depends how, but usually yes. It can't last a whole evening, my scalp is too sensitive.


3. Do you believe in luck?

No, but I always say that I'm lucky in my bad luck.

e.g.: If I have a motorcycle accident, I'll be on top of a hill and where I'm supposed to go is at the bottom and my bike is in good enough shape that I can go there on neutral and be in time for my appointment. Plus the accident is in the city where my mechanic is which is 200km away from where I live.

4. What about miracles?


Nope.

5. Do you think there is life on other planets?


Of course!

6. Do you still talk to your first crush?


Nope.

7. What do you do when you wake up?


Don't want to get up.


8. What do you say during awkward silences?

Nothing. I let it die its own death.

10. If you're being extremely quiet what does it mean?


Nothing. If I'm humming a tuneless song, then I'm very happy and content.

11. Do you smile at strangers?


Usually. Especially women. What can I say.  ;D

12. Trip to outer space or bottom of the ocean?


Outer space, baby!

13. Have you done anything recently that you hope nobody finds out about?


Nope.

14. Ever wished you were someone else?


All the time when I was young. Not anymore. With the same personality, I wouldn't mind being a woman, but that doesn't count since I'd be the same person.

15. Ever been in love? 


A number of time, at varying degree.

16. Ever broken someones heart?


Unfortunately. Worst decision ever. Although, I wouldn't be here if I hadn't. I'd have a quiet little life in Quebec City which is not what I want.

17. Ever had your heart broken?

Yes.


18. What should you be doing?


Drinking a tall glass of tomato juice. 500ml. I'll go get it right now.

19. Who was the last person you cried in front of?


I can't remember anymore... I think it was at the funeral of my ex-wife's mother. I bawled like a baby, in the church, in front of everybody, as she and her brothers were receiving a lineup of condolences. I started when I got to her. She was surprised, to say the least.

20. Go-to book you recommend to strangers:

None. Not to strangers.


I'll add a question...

21. What's you guilty pleasure? (You really need to feel guilty and at the same time find pleasure in it.)

I can't say "eating chocolat", because I don't have any at home and when I buy some, it's in small quantity and I don't feel guilty at all.

What makes me feel guilty is spending a whole day finicking with my MTG cards, building decks or looking nice cards. It really amounts to doing nothing, really nothing. The only thing that I get, other than stimulating my imagination and my cognitive abilities, is that when I play with my friends, it's gonna be even more awesome! If I don't consciously decide to throw away a day doing this, I feel a bit guilty, especially if there's other things I should be doing.

Because I can't get enough of these, apparently...

1. Who was the last person you held hands with?


Er...


2. Do you like it when people play with your hair?

Not really. It's short hair so not  a lot to with which to fool around...


3. Do you believe in luck?

Luck happens despite belief... both versions.

4. What about miracles?


Peasant surprises but events without a rational explanation? Oh boy...


5. Do you think there is life on other planets?


On the ones on which there is life, of course, otherwise, no.

6. Do you still talk to your first crush?


No. I was 5 and I moved away. This was (naturally) pre-social media... I wonder....

7. What do you do when you wake up?


Listen to the alarm, it's a really cool tune and sends me to sleep. Not sure that was the intention...


8. What do you say during awkward silences?

Depends! Fill 'em up...

10. If you're being extremely quiet what does it mean?


Normal.

11. Do you smile at strangers?


Sometimes, but only females or returning a smile.

Outer space. Gotta see the in flight movie selection. I am so far behind on Games of Thrones...

13. Have you done anything recently that you hope nobody finds out about?


I hope anything and everything I do no one finds out about. Worlds kept apart should stay apart.

14. Ever wished you were someone else?


No. Ok, maybe James Bond but I anticipate growing out of that. One day...

15. Ever been in love?

Probably. That goes to explain the tortured emotions of youth.

16. Ever broken someones heart?


Does this include anger, annoyance, fury etc? I suspect it may have been one of my past lives (!) that initiated the reasons for hurricanes being named after women (pre PC times)  i.e. all my fault (no, not the hurricanes themselves. I'm not Lex Luther.

17. Ever had your heart broken?

See 15.


18. What should you be doing?


Getting something to eat.

Max's guilty pleasure question?

So many... um... ok, ice cream. However it comes and whatever flavour. Up market, down market. Don't care. There, guilty yer honour. I usually say at this point I promise not to do that again but who would believe that blatant lie?. Where was I? Oh yes, food. See ya...
