About our wonderful selves - answer a question and ask one

Pretty self explanatory... answer with something you know, then pry but randomly. See the beauty of it?

What is your worst bodily feature?

I will never argue with that. I am the last one you want if there is a spelling question.

Honey Bee toxin. Fatally allergic with full anaphylaxis in minutes.

Don't get any idea's, as I always check packages addressed to me for "buzzing" sounds by holding the box to my ear before opening.

not in the classical "light at the end of the tunnel" way -

when i was in nepal it was landslide season. we had to cross many to get around. one in particular, i thought for sure i was gonna slip, and go sliding right down that mountain. imagine standing on the side of a mountain - on the right is a slippery looking large crack in the earth, and on the left is, well, air. and, you have to cross the slippery stuff to get where you need to be, 'cause you can't fly.

i was convinced, this was it. and, if i bought it, i bought it. couldn't be helped. but, i didn't want to die. and hey, i made it across! yay me!

hardest vacation i've ever taken. :)

At the planning stages of attempting a custody change and getting my kids to live with me, an attorney advised to me to move in between my ex's house and the kids school. It was good advice and helped my case. Things worked out for the best.

Shaved or neatly trimmed? Grooming issue of your choice.

Neatly trimmed mutton-chop sideburns, right now, with a soul patch. Sometimes I grow a whole beard, though not often, and I usually sport a goatee of some sort. Occasionally, I take off everything but the soul patch. But never clean-shaven. My face looks best to me with at least a little facial hair.

What do you do for a living, and did you ever think as a kid that that's what you'd do?

I am a Technical Writer for a software engineering company. That is probably the last thing I would have imagined myself doing. As a kid I aspired to be either:
a) a fireman
b) a train driver
c) one of the Beatles (but that job was taken - although I did sing in bands for a couple of decades)

What's a soul patch? Is it something the Reverend Al Green uses to heal you?

It would be too surprising to predict. It would probably feel a long day yet all very now, and involve awesome scenes of nature and different human extremes.

In a word for each, the quality you most admire in a woman and in a man?

Btw, also there's no reason why, if one feels like doing so, they can't answer a previous question and then just repeat the one still to be answered. Or answer both or more, as long as a question is still left for the nest poster.

With apologies to LR [so sue me, I fucked up the first time]

Just a perfect day
Drink black coffee in the park
And then later when it gets dark we go home

Just a perfect day
Showin' my favorite boots to you
And then later, a concert too and then home

Oh it's such a perfect day
I'm glad I spent it with you
Oh such a perfect day
You just keep me hanging on
You just keep me hanging on

Going to class, then going home to study and drink Fizzy Rum Punch.

No, not really.

What's more comfortable - underwear or no underwear?

Speaking as a guy.. underwear.
