Are you named after someone?
My father's father was named David, and my mother's father was named James. My mother told me that I wasn't deliberately named after them, they just liked the names. My father disagreed.

When is the last time you cried?
The Steven Universe episode "Mr. Greg" made me cry. Really cried, as opposed to just being moved by art? I honestly am not sure. Probably in 2001 when my grandparents died.

Do you like your handwriting?
No. It's always been kind of awkward and graceless.

What is your favorite lunch meat?
Roast beef.

Do you have kids?
No. I've never felt that I could do a proper job of it, and I'd much rather not do it than do it wrong.

Do you use sarcasm?
When I think it's called for.

Do you still have your tonsils?

Would you bungee jump?
Sure, why not?

What is your favorite kind of cereal?
My local supermarket had a special on Kashi Toasted Berry Crisp and I liked it, so that's what I eat recently when I eat cereal, which isn't often. As a kid I really liked Lucky Charms but only got to eat it when I was with grandparents.

Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Um...yes? Not untying them has never really occurred to me as an option. How would I get them back on again?

Do you think you're strong?
No. I'd say I'm about average for a man my size, or a little below.

What is your favorite ice cream?
Chocolate. No question. However, if I'm having a sundae, I want vanilla: hot fudge on chocolate ice cream has too little flavor contrast.

What is the first thing you notice about people?
Probably the face.

Football or baseball?
Baseball. No question.

What is your least favorite thing about yourself?
Physically, my gut. Mentally, probably a lack of willpower.

What color pants are you wearing now?

What was the last thing you ate?
A combination plate with Caesar salad and turkey chili.

What are you listening to right now.

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
I honestly can't actually think of an answer to this question.

Favorite smell?

Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?
My wife.

Favorite sport to watch?
I'm really not a spectator sport kind of guy. If I have to pick one, baseball.

Hair color?
Very dark brown / black, but with gray at the temples and spreading upwards.

Eye color?

Favorite food?
Chicago-style deep dish or stuffed pizza. Ideally the spinach and mushroom stuffed pizza from Zachary's in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Scary movies or happy ending?
These are hardly mutually exclusive. If the choice is pressed on me, I'll go with the happy ending.

Last movie you watched?

What color shirt are you wearing?
Gray, but with a maroon and navy striped sweater over it.

Apparently a lot of modern sneakers are cut a bit more open at the top than used to be customary, so that unless you tie them really tight they do work as slip-ons. Russ has a bunch of them. I only have the one pair, because most of my tie shoes are older than that.

For my sneakers that I use as walking shoes, as long as I remember, I tie them loosely enough to slip them on and off without having to redo the knots.

For my tennis shoes, I re-tie them tight before playing. Afterward, I untie them, loosen them, and re-tie them loosely before slipping them off. That way, next time I want them, I can slip them on and walk comfortably until it is time to play, whereupon I tighten them.
