    This survey looks fun, here's my attempt at it
    Who did you last get angry with?
    Haven't been angry with a lot of people lately. There was a bunch of bozos I was debating with on Usenet the other week who I eventually basically told to sod off.

    What is your weapon of choice?
    Nuclear warheads! Big ones! Sadly, real life shares with most roleplaying games the drawback that you're not allowed have them :(

    Would you hit a member of the opposite sex?
    Only if I really had to, in self-defense or defense of another, and even then I'd try to use minimum force.

    Who was the last person who got really angry at you?
    Again, haven't been in a lot of arguments lately, see above.

    What is your pet peeve?
    Hmm... Americans saying "I could care less" when they mean "I couldn't care less", or geeks saying "app" when they mean "program"? :)

    Do you keep grudges, or can you let them go easily?
    Normally I can let them go; if someone does something to piss me off, these things happen, I'm not generally going to build up long-term resentment about it. The main exception is when someone behaves in a slimy fashion, such that they manage to convince me that it's genuinely in their nature to be slimy. I haven't much time for people like that.

    What is one thing you're supposed to do daily that you haven't done in a while?
    Exercise, I suppose.

    What is the latest you've ever woken up?
    Sometime the following night :)

    Name a person you've been meaning to contact, but haven't?
    *scratches head* I'm sure there are some, but I don't remember who, which is probably why I haven't contacted them :)

    What is the last lame excuse you made?
    Does the above count? :)

    Have you ever watched an infomercial all the way through (one of the long ones...?)
    What's an infomercial?

    When was the last time you got a good workout in?
    Long enough ago that I forget exactly when :)

    How many times did you hit the snooze button on your alarm clock today?
    I use the phone alarm call service, precisely because it doesn't have a snooze button ^.^ Well, that and the fact that it doesn't use batteries. Batteries suck. Why can't someone invent some that last longer than five minutes? (Yes I know the technical answer to that, I'm just griping :))

    What is your overpriced yuppie beverage of choice?
    I can truthfully say I don't really drink overpriced yuppie beverages.

    Meat eaters: White or Red?

    What is the greatest amount of alcohol you've had in one sitting/outing/event?
    Well, when I was young and foolish, I used to drink tequila; regarding quantity, suffice it to say that I was by no means always wont to observe a seemly moderation :)

    Have you ever used a professional diet company?

    Do you have an issue with your weight?

    Do you prefer sweets, salty foods, or spicy foods?

    Have you ever looked at a small pet or child and thought, "LUNCH"?
    Heh, nope! I'm quite happy to let other people worry about the process of converting animals into food ^.^

    How many people have you seen naked (not counting movies/family)?
    A few, I guess.

    How many people have seen YOU naked (not counting physicians/family)?
    A few.

    Have you ever caught yourself staring at the chest/crotch of a member of your gender of choice during a normal conversation?
    No, though there's been the odd occasion when I had to spend a Willpower point on this :)

    Have you "done it"?

    What is your favourite body part on a person of your gender of choice?
    Depends, but I'll admit to being partial to a shapely pair of ankles ^.^

    Have you ever been propositioned by a prostitute?
    I think so. At least, there was one time when I was walking to a games convention in Dublin and a woman said something like "looking for business" when I passed her in the street, which I can only guess was a proposition of this type; though I remember it because I recall thinking that I had no idea what approach and wording was customarily used, but if I had to guess, that wouldn't have been my guess :)

    How many credit cards do you own?

    If you had $1 million, what would you do with it?
    Keep it to live on while I got on with my quest to invent Skynet ^.^

    Would you rather be rich, or famous?
    Rich. From what I've seen via the news media of famous people, being famous sucks. The news media seem to be like a pack of pit bulls with incipient rabies - they mightn't appear unfriendly at first glance, if you're lucky, but it's only a matter of time until they turn on you.

    Would you accept a boring job if it meant you would make megabucks?
    Maybe. I'm not sure... honestly, that's a sufficiently implausible scenario that I find it hard to connect it to the real world enough to figure out the answer.

    Have you ever stolen anything?
    Not that I remember.

    How many MP3s are on your hard drive?
    Who's counting? :)

    What's one thing you have done that you're most proud of?
    Not sure... I've created some good games, written some business software of complexity that's normally done by multiple roomfuls of programmers, hopefully/perhaps talked someone out of repeating a suicide attempt, played and run interesting roleplaying campaigns, figured out the answers to some important questions... well, questions I found important, anyway ^.^ I'm not really going to try and set relative values here.

    What's one thing you have done that your parents are most proud of?
    Writing some cool software, getting a college degree, getting a string of A's in my Leaving Cert, I guess :)

    Do you get annoyed by coming in second place?
    I do if there were only two people in the contest! :P

    Have you ever entered a contest of skill, knowing you were of much higher skill than all the other competitors?
    No, I wouldn't see the point.

    Have you ever cheated on something to get a higher score?

    What did you do today that you're proud of?
    Came up with a good character concept for a campaign I might be joining! ^.^

    What item (or person) of your friends would you most want to have for your own?
    I've drooled a bit at some of the new Pentium 4 computers; this old Pentium 3 is getting a bit long in the tooth :)

    Who would you want to go on "Trading Spaces" with?
    Never heard of it.

    If you could be anyone else in the world, who would you be?
    Well if I was someone else I wouldn't be me. Which means it wouldn't be me being them, it'd be them being them. But they already are them. So if I was someone else, things would be exactly as they are now.
    (I could digress about how nobody seems to realize that this is the refutation of the anthropic 'Doomsday Argument'. But everyone would probably start falling asleep. So I won't :))

    Have you ever been cheated on?

    Have you ever wished you had a physical feature different from your own?
    Sure, who wouldn't like to have 100% perfect health, vision, reflexes etc?

    What inborn trait do you see in others that you wish you had for yourself?
    Being born the heir to a large fortune? :)

    Finally, what is your favourite deadly sin?
    Lust is definitely the most fun ^.^
