Ask me three questions in the comments. I'll answer to the best of my ability. Then on your own LJ, invite people to ask you questions. (You can ask me questions and not volunteer for them yourself, if you want.)

Banal questions but I'm lacking in creativity today!
Fave snack of all time?
Desired super power?
Least favourite thing about December?

1) I tend to lose the most control around frosted sugar cookies.

2) Flight, without question. Travel is amazing but airline travel is horrible in the best circumstances.

3) December is like the last Sunday before school starts up. We're in for a long slog.

I'm not great at coming up with questions.

1. Favorite book/author?
2. What kind of music do you enjoy?
3. What do you like to drink? Coffee or tea? How about alcohol?

1) I haven't re-read it in a while, but The Stand by Stephen King started my love of reading. More recently, reading Wee Free Men at bedtime to my son was really excellent.

2) I tend to gravitate toward songs that are good for jumping on the bed to. My favorite band is Face to Face and I frequently find myself listening to Foo Fighters, Green Day, NOFX, Metric, Jets to Brazil and Queens of the Stone Age.

3) #1 beverage is Diet Mountain Dew. Hot drinks tend to irritate me (I take after Goldilocks in many, many facets of my life) as they're never the right temperature for long enough. I'll have an occasional hard cider (as in, maybe once a year?) but otherwise don't drink. A high school friend is planning to get my tipsy in January, which would be my first time, which might make for a good journal entry? I mean, not during, but probably after.

I read The Stand when I was in high school, and I really liked it. I didn't love the miniseries of it that they did, though. I think my first Stephen King book was actually It, which is not something I'm likely to let my kids read for many, many years.

I like the bands you've mentioned that I'm familiar with. I may have to check out some of the others on youtube.

Drunken journal updates could be awesome, though! I'm not a big drinker, either. I enjoy a cocktail once in a while, and I like wine sometimes. And I love to cook with beer. That's about it.

My dad's mom was an avid reader, and I got to borrow all of her Stephen King paperbacks. Too young to read them (like, early teens) but they never totally freaked me out. I cannot stand horror movies, but scary writing doesn't get to me the same way.

The album I flat out recommend to everyone is Metric's Fantasies. So great. I got to see them in Madison this past February and they put on a great show.

Diet Mountain Dew lover here, too though I've backed off it in recent months - I was drinking so much of it. I hadn't had soda in over 10 years, then I met my Diet Dew loving husband and fell off the wagon :) It's so delicious!

I don't *think* I have too many vices and I've given up soda (ok, it was only two weeks but it was a long two weeks) in the past, but it hits the spot like nothing else.

1. If you could go back to your early-Livejournal self and give that self one piece of advice, what would it be?

2. What does your ideal Sunday afternoon look like?

3. Least favorite household chore, and why?

1) Wow, good question. Probably trust your intuition more and that your worth isn't defined by others.

2) Sundays are kind of ideal for me now - wake up next to Kimberly and make breakfast for her and Nate (my son). Kimberly heads home while Nate and I play a game or guffaw at an episode of MST3K. Head to service at our UU Fellowship. Nate goes home with his mom and I have 10 hours to do whatever the hell I want. Lately, it's been watching NFL game(s) while sporadically cleaning the house or making to-do lists. I take tennis lessons in a drill group after dinner. Sunday night I unwind with a shower and try to make progress in whatever books are on my nightstand.

3) Mopping. Good lord, I hate mopping. I never quite seem to have a system down that really gets everything clean. I recently bought a steam mop that seems to do better. I'm more inclined to sweep and vacuum the hardwood/tile floors and spot clean messes as they happen.

1. If you got one wish, what would it be?

2. What is your hidden talent?

3. The zombie apocalypse is here. Bug in or bug out?

1) That Hillary would be president. It's knee-jerk and unlimited wealth or the ability to fly would be great, but I'm quite terrified for the next 4 years (and beyond).

2) I retain useless bits of trivia more than other people I know. Ooh, I can stand in a doorway and touch the floor with one hand and the top of the doorjamb with the other.

3) I'd do my best to get my family to safety. The whole thing could be avoided if we'd just shackle people's arms and legs together when they died.

What's your favorite part about working remotely?
...and your least favorite part? (I work mostly remotely too, hence my curiosity!)
Where would you like to live if you ever moved away from WI?

1) Probably the lack of commute. My last job was 30 miles away, so a good hour of driving each day got old quick. And I worked there for 7 years!

2) The learning curve for my job was way, way harder without being in close proximity to my boss and co-workers. They said it would be 18 months before I was fully proficient (which made me think they thought I was a doofus) but it was pretty spot-on. So much learning is done informally/in the break room/over lunch, etc.

3) I've been thinking about this more lately - I don't want to live my whole life experiencing Wisconsin winters each year. I'd likely move west (Oregon or Washington) to someplace with better weather and more liberal leanings.

1. What is one thing that you wish you could unsee?

2. Would you be more likely to investigate a strange noise at night, or lock yourself in your room while hoping for the best? (Assume that you know the noise is not caused by a ... guest ... escaping her or his manacles in the basement)

3. What's your favorite cake flavor?
