4 Are you an Optimist or Pessimist? i try to see the glass as half full. it's not always easy, but the world is bleak as a pessimist.
5 What do you collect? nothing these days -- i'm about to move and am trying to whittle down my superfluous belongings. i used to collect tons of crap, though -- shells, pins, shot glasses, decks of cards, foreign money, stickers. oh! and i just found my old basketball card collection from the mid-90s. had to save a few of those -- championship bulls!

11 Mac or PC? mac, obviously. i'm, like, super creative and unique.
12 What are you listening to right now? well, i was listening to the sound of my fan because it's hot as hell in this room. but upon turning my itunes on shuffle, i am now listening to the wicked soundtrack. (geek alert! are you sure you still want me in your wedding?)
