1) What have you and Jeff worked out on your polyamory beliefs/bisexuality?

I'm still poly, I'm still bi. We did the poly thing (more of an open relationship thing) for awhile before he moved out here, but then opted out of that for various and sundry reasons. We wanted to get a good foundation under us before worrying about anyone else. And these days, I don't have time to date anyone else. Heck, I barely have time to date him some days, and I live with him. ;) The deal these days is that we'll just take it as we come and see what happens. If someone falls into our lives, great, then we'll work it out, and if not, we're both very happy. I don't either of us would mind having a (female) third in our lives, but we're not looking either.

2) What will it take for you to overcome your fear of driving?

That's a damn fine question, and I'd love to figure that out. Probably just doing it. The few times I've driven in the last couple of years, I've done all right, once I managed to relax.

3) Where do you see yourself in 20 years?

Living on several acres of land, off the grid, with Jeff. Teaching, either onilne or in the classroom or some of both. Doing research and publishing books. Owning sheep and selling yarn that I spin. Hopefully well travelled. In general, being a crazy nutty-crunchy college professor.

4) Of all the people you were friends with at Science and Math whom you no longer keep contact with, who are the five you most wish you could talk to, and why?

Well, there's John-boy, who I wish I had kept in better contact with before he died. Other than that, it's hard to pick just five; I wish in general that I was in better contact with most of my friends from S&M. They're smart people, and a lot of fun, but most of us have gone off in our own little directions these days.

5) Will you bring Joyce home cooking on Sunday?

:) What do we want to make?

Anyone else want to be interviewed?

again, not picky. :)

who was john boy?
20th-Oct-2005 01:49 pm (UTC)
John Hurd... he was in the year before me, died my freshman year in college. He's the one the Hurd room downstairs in the ETC is named for.

And we're non-picky too. :) But we need to decide on something, so that we know what to bring/you know what to get. :)
20th-Oct-2005 12:53 pm (UTC)
I'll take questions.

I also have one - Do you know how to spin already? I still haven't figured out how to make my drop spindle and pile of wool into actual yarn.
20th-Oct-2005 01:50 pm (UTC)
I will ponder questions and report back to you. :)

And nope, I sure don't (yet). I will be taking a spinning class in the spring, assuming it's not taught on Wednesday nights. arlydwycka knows how to spin with a drop spindle, though, and might know of good instructions online. Jessie? :)

1. What are your plans after you're done with your medical assistant certificate? I really ought to know this already.

2. What is the nicest yarn you've had a chance to work with lately?

3. Do you prefer road, plane, train, or other trips?

4. When are you coming to visit NC? :)

5. What is your favorite non-Qdoba restuarant in Seattle? In general?
20th-Oct-2005 02:32 pm (UTC)
Now you make me curious... How would you work online if you are off the grid?
20th-Oct-2005 05:51 pm (UTC)
Net connections do come in sattelite, just like television and phone options.

It's pricey, but not that uncommon up here in Alaska. Of course, we're not a state on a grid so much as a thousand maybe-not-overlapping patches - mostly off the road system.

If you want to contemplate public outcry - we have a few villages that got bankrupt enough they couldn't afford the fuel for their generators for a while, and only electricity in town was off private gernerators.
20th-Oct-2005 03:16 pm (UTC)
If you feel so inclined, I'd be curious what questions you have for me. But don't make me a priority unless something's been eating at you. heh.
21st-Oct-2005 10:36 pm (UTC)
I'm a sociologist. I'm nosy by nature. I can always think of something. :)

1. Is a move back to SEA imminent? :)

2. Where do you want to be in five years?

3. What is your favorite gaming system and why?

4. Do you ever want to cut off your hair? How long has it been that long?

5. What makes you most happy in life?
20th-Oct-2005 03:47 pm (UTC)
punch and pie.
21st-Oct-2005 10:38 pm (UTC)
1. Are you happy with where you're at, for the moment? If not, what do you want to fix?

2. What do you consider to be the most basic life survival skill?

3. What are you learning about these days? What are the current interests?

4. What is your favorite board game?

5. What one scientific discovery do you wish we as a society could make in the next 20 years?
20th-Oct-2005 05:55 pm (UTC)
Got any questions for me?
21st-Oct-2005 10:40 pm (UTC)
Of course. :)

1. Why do you prefer crochet over knitting?

2. What kind of jobs are you looking for? How do you feel about getting back into tech?

3. What's the next place you wish you could travel, money and time being no object?

4. What is your favorite thing about your cats?

5. How is the house thing coming?
20th-Oct-2005 05:59 pm (UTC)
Distance helped my fear of driving - not just time behind the wheel, but actual highway trips. With in-town driving, everything is coming at you very quickly, and there's rarely time to really relax and unclench everything.

With highway driving, nobody can pull out of an alley, parking space, or side street - you may be going much faster, but the entrances and exits are marked and measure traffic flow. There are no pedestrians (aside from the odd moose or hitchhiker), and people tend to give more warning time before doing anything.

If you want to interview me, feel free. It'd be amusing.
20th-Oct-2005 06:24 pm (UTC)
Oh, and for the wool-raising - why sheep? Why not llamas or musk ox?

Sheep are nasty, stinky, vicious, evil-tempered stupid creatures. Did I mention they're vicious and foul? I always get a kick out of bible passages where Jesus calls people a flock of sheep - lets me know he had no higher an opinion of us than I do.
22nd-Oct-2005 08:34 am (UTC)
Sure. Interview away. ^_^
22nd-Oct-2005 03:21 pm (UTC)
1. It's interior design you're studying, right? What do you like most and least about it?

2. What do you want to do after you're done school? What kind of jobs can one get if one studies interior design?

3. What do you miss most about Chicago? What do you like best about Seattle?

4. You were living alone for awhile before regaining a roommate recently, correct? How are you adjusting to living with someone again?

5. What is your favorite gaming system and why?
23rd-Oct-2005 12:28 am (UTC) - *waves*
I'm curious. I know we know quite a few of the same people. I'll admit I'd like to know what someone would ask when they knew nothing about the person in question, other than through other people and any publically available information. ;)

If you'd rather not, though, that's all nifty.
23rd-Oct-2005 02:15 am (UTC) - Re: *waves*
:) I'm always willing to play; forgive me for the generalish nature of the questions, though.

1. Describe yourself in 25 words or less. What should someone absolutely know about you?

2. It's the old desert island question. Three books, two food items, one cd - what do you want with you?

3. Do you drink? If so, what's your favorite drink that's not necessarily on every bar's menu?

4. What is your favorite thing about being a parent? And your least favorite?

5. What's your favorite city that you've lived in? If you've only lived in one general area, where would you like to live?
