1. What's the one thing a coworker does at work that completely drives you batty?

Rushes up to stand behind me and looks at what's on my screen. Fark off!!

2. What would you consider your biggest pet peeve?

People who bitch and bitch and bitch but won't do anything about their problems.

3. What pet peeve do you consider silly, that is tops on the list of someone you know?

My husband has to fold the towels in the bathroom so they lie perfectly square. When I mess them up I can see he is pissed and almost physically uncomfortable until he can make them straight again. Heh.

4. What are you going to do this weekend?

Go to the thrift shop and buy costumes for Hallowe'en, have a few beers with friends, hope I can scam into one of the sold-out events at the Writers' Festival (William Gibson is speaking, aieeeee!!!)

5. What's your favorite piece of clothing in your wardrobe?

Can't pick just one... leather jackets and crazy shoes

6. What's the strangest thing you've heard a coworker say?

Have to think about this one... I'm sure there are doozies

7. What's the strangest thing you've said recently?

"I will be transitioning off this project" I hate made up words!!

8. Do people generally understand you?

Yes, except in the debate forum

9. Are you flexible?

Yes, but not as flexy as I used to be

10. What's your party trick?

Drinking more than people realize I can

11. Do you look your age?

People say no, but I dunno. I usually get mid-twenties as a guess.

12. Do you act your age?

I will quote a wise person: "you can be childlike all your life and you will make yourself and those around you happy, or you can be childish all your life and make everyone miserable." I like to be goofy (er... actually, I have no choice, I AM goofy), which some people interpret as immature, but I like to think I am a mature person with a light heart.

13. What do you think is the ideal age?

I don't have one... when I was a kid I thought of hitting 50 as being the ideal time of life, when I'd have my life all together and things would be in place. I don't think that's necessarily true anymore... I guess my smartass question would be, ideal for what

14. And as always, what was the last thing that made you smile?

Your post in the "briefs" thread, midear
