I would say 49 dumb questions. Any question that ask about one’s pirate aspirations is brilliant! ;)

I know we've never physically hung out before, but had we done so, I guarantee I would've been proudly featured as your Loudest Friend. You should've heard me last night at the concert I attended--no booze at all, and I was yelling "That's MY FUCKING JAM!" at the top of my lungs after damnear every song the band Ana-Vey played. I just met them last night and discovered they were all originally from Uniontown, as well, and now they're in Pittsburgh doing incredibly cabaret dance music. It's like Edith Piaf meets...I don't know, the Neptunes. Look 'em up on MySpace (I haven't stopped in there yet to look for them, but I know they're on there)--I'll bet you $5 you'll love 'em.

BTW, have you checked this out yet? Leave a damn comment, will ya? Jeez. I'm makin' you a character in the next story, you could at least leave a stinkin' comment. :) *hhahhahaha*

Also, I've turned another friend of mine onto your stuff via Threshold. You realize that that book may eventually considered your Master Work. God knows it's my favorite piece of yours!

25. Least favorite place to be?: Mississippi.

Greetings from somewhere lamentable in Mississippi.

Seahorses can be found here, albeit in aquarium shoppes. Yet even they are so bored that they have nothing to do but ponder their reflections in aquarium glass.
