Nineteen Questions, redux

A while back, I put a list of nineteen questions on my Livejournal and encouraged people to answer them. I've decided to do it again for a number of reasons. So here's the deal. If you feel the inclination, post a comment answering these questions.


1. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
2. When and how did we first meet?
3. What was your first impression?
4. Do you still think that way about me now?
5. What do you think my weakness is?
6. What makes me happy?
7. What makes me sad?
8. What reminds you of me?
9. If you could give me anything what would it be?
10. How well do you know me?
11. When is the last time you saw me?
12. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
13. Do you think I could kill someone?
14. Describe me in one word.
15. Do you feel that you could talk to me about anything and I would listen?
16. Do I make you nervous?
17. Would you let me stay with you if I needed somewhere to go?
18. Would you be comfortable being alone with me?
19. Are you going to put this on your livejournal and see what I say about you?

1. Pondscum. Glorious life on the surface, which is only peripherally aware of the vast, all-important system beneath.

2. I've got a large whole in my memory that stretches over my first year at WPI. Weren't you my junior at the academy orientation?

3. Probably smart and cynical.

4. The cynical part has been modified to something more profound.

5. Reconstructing reality to fit a model.

6. Victory.

7. Intense introspection.

8. Your model ship, part of the reason I (apparently) subconciously don't want to give it back. :)

9. A small 500 acre sovereign nation/raft in the middle of the pacific with a fully manned naval yard.

10. Fairly well.

11. Rachael's birthday party.

12. Yeh.

13. Yeh.

14. Nifty

15. Rephrased: "Do you feel that I would listen to you, no matter what you talked about?" Yes.

16. Not nervous, but mindful, certainly.

17. Absolutely.

18. Aye.

19. Maybe later.

1. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
Oh, I don't know... you're not that eminently in need of one... let's say "Admiral". Complete with Chekov's bad Russian accent, of course.

2. When and how did we first meet?
Wedge gaming.

3. What was your first impression?
"There's no way this man can possibly know this much about naval history... I wonder how much of this he's making up on the spot..."

4. Do you still think that way about me now?
Am I still impressed? Yeah. Do I still think you're making it up on the spot? I know better now.

5. What do you think my weakness is?
Ooh, I'd probably have to go with overanalysis...

6. What makes me happy?
Friends, sparked interests, knowing the answer.

7. What makes me sad?
Being alone or forgotten, not living up to your own expectations.

8. What reminds you of me?
Battletech, Rory saying "Oh God, the hosing", Intercon and dancing, Tang that can double as Brass-o...

9. If you could give me anything what would it be?
If we're talking in general, you couldn't put it in a box... if this means only physical objects, well, you still couldn't put it in a box... unless you had a really, really big box...

10. How well do you know me?
Better than most, I would have to say.

11. When is the last time you saw me?
At the Last Battle for the Wedge Gaming before apathy and distance finally took over.

12. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
*ahem* Yes.

13. Do you think I could kill someone?
To defend someone you loved? Yes. Otherwise? I don't think you would let yourself.

14. Describe me in one word.
Inspired.

15. Do you feel that you could talk to me about anything and I would listen?
Actually yes, I do.

16. Do I make you nervous?
No, except when you grin and stroke your beard. Then I think you make everyone nervous. ;)

17. Would you let me stay with you if I needed somewhere to go?
Absolutely.

18. Would you be comfortable being alone with me?
Considering I have been before, I think the answer is obvious.

19. Are you going to put this on your livejournal and see what I say about you?
Nah, probably not until the meme's died down some. ;)

1. Give me a nickname and explain why you picked it.
I can't think of another name for you. If someone else with the same name came around, they would receive the nickname.

2. When and how did we first meet?
Academy. When they were trying to kick you out--at least that's my first distinct memory.

3. What was your first impression?
I can't remember one. Ironically, it may have been that you were old. Or it may have been that you were good at chess.

4. Do you still think that way about me now?
No on the first, yes on the second.

5. What do you think my weakness is?
I do not know. I would think that you have several, but I don't think I know what they are. And what is a weakness in some circumstances would not be in others.

6. What makes me happy?
Puns. People. Gaming. Money. Knowing the right answer. Having a job. Your car (when it's working). Food. Burn spells. Coding in low-level languages. Documenting said code.

7. What makes me sad?
Living too far away. The difficulty of interacting with females.

8. What reminds you of me?
Your livejournal. Elegant puns. Tact. The Academy. Academy history.
(If I came into contact with history, naval history, or model ships on a regular basis, these might remind me of you too. But I do not.)

9. If you could give me anything what would it be?
I would ask you what you wanted first. What do you want?

10. How well do you know me?
Not as well as I would like to.

11. When is the last time you saw me?
When you came over for dinner; we had chickeny rice.

12. Ever wanted to tell me something but couldn't?
No.

13. Do you think I could kill someone?
Not in cold blood, or out of anger. In self defense? Perhaps.

14. Describe me in one word.
I am torn. None of the words I can think of can do it. I choose 4:
Elegantly (Confident. Competent. Geeky.)
I think if I have to choose one, it would be elegant, but in and of itself, it does not convey what I intend it to.

15. Do you feel that you could talk to me about anything and I would listen?
I do not feel that I could talk to you about anything; that is because of me, not you. But I feel that you would listen to anything I talked about.

16. Do I make you nervous?
No.

17. Would you let me stay with you if I needed somewhere to go?
Yes. But until we have a house, this would be an extremely suboptimal solution. I would let you stay with me if you really couldn't find another place. However, walls are very useful and I would really like to have them before accepting overnight guests.

18. Would you be comfortable being alone with me?
Yes.

19. Are you going to put this on your livejournal and see what I say about you?
If other people do. *follows crowd*
