When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?

If were talking personal letters to people we know I would probably have to go back to summer camp when I was 10 or 11. I have written to my representatives on various issues. I'm not sure when I wrote the last one (maybe six months ago?)

Can you change the oil on a car?
Physically able to? No. Know how to? Well, no I don't know how to either.

Ever gotten a speeding ticket?
Never driven, so no speeding tickets.

Run out of gas?
[personal profile] loracs, and I broke a fuel line in LA once. So I guess you could say that was running out of gas.

Favorite kind of sandwich?
I am my mother's son and I love sandwiches. All kinds. If I like the ingredients at all putting them between two slices of bread is a plus. I have a special fondness for a sandwich [personal profile] loracs designed for me at Genova's Deli (that doesn't exist anymore at least as a sandwich place.) It was their Italian meat with fresh mozzarella on sliced sourdough with oil and vinegar. I love grilled cheese, hamburgers, liverwurst and PB&J cooked or uncooked. I loves me some sandwiches!

What is your usual bedtime?
2 or 3 AM.

Are you lazy?
More often than not.

When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?
I hate to write it but the costume I wore the most was "hobo". Mostly, because it was easy to put together.

Do you have any magazine subscriptions?
I don't think so, wait I just started paying for an alumni membership to UC Berkeley. I think it comes with a magazine.

Which are better, legos or lincoln logs?
I reject the concept of better in this question. I like Legos a little more because they are more versatile to me, but both are fine time-killers. Not that I can use them anymore.

Are you stubborn?
I happen to think stubbornness gets a bad rap. I believe that I can be stubborn, but don't have to be. I also think that my stubbornness has kept me alive on more than one occasion.

Who is better, Leno or Letterman?
I hate the way Letterman handles some topics; being fat for example. I've always thought that Letterman was careful who he made the butt of his comedy. He attacked professionals, people in the public eye in general.

I never found Leno particularly funny. He's also very unimaginative. What I truly detest is how Leno picked on ordinary people who could not defend themselves. All of his "man on the street" interviews made fun of people who didn't deserve it. I always felt that Letterman did his best to take care of the people on his show.

Ever watch soap operas?
Sure, I watched Dark Shadows when I was a kid. I also watched my mother's soap operas: General Hospital and One Life to Live. I sometimes watch [personal profile] loracs's soaps with her but not very often.

Afraid of heights?
I'm afraid of hurting myself. Heights tend to make me think of falling, but I can usually deal with heights if I need to.

Sing in the car?
Sure, but then I sing everywhere. I'm not particularly good and I don't always know all the words, but I sing it's a family thing.

Dance in the shower?
No, showers are for getting clean and having sex.

Dance in the car?
About as much as I dance anywhere.

Ever used a gun?
Nope, unless you count a BB gun.

Do you think musicals are cheesy?
What's wrong with cheesy? Sure some are, but I tend to like them much more that I dislike them. I'm enjoying the soundtrack to Hamilton. Love Les Miserables, Rocky Horror, Little Shop of Horrors (*not* the movie). I love Sondheim. Hate Andrew Lloyd Webber (except for Jesus Christ Superstar)

Is Christmas stressful?
Nah.

Ever eat a pierogi?
Sure, they are like little sandwiches.

Major annoyance right now?
Well, besides the world at large. Right now I’m terribly bothered by a DVD digitizing service called Vudu. For a fee they allow you to take DVDs that you already own and store them online. Because of licenses a great deal of my DVDs are not eligible for transfer. I’m annoyed that those same DVD’s can be purchased and added to my online library for a significantly higher price than the transfer fee. “Grrrrr”

Occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid?
Astronaut, Pilot, Actor, Rock guitarist.

Do you believe in ghosts?
No.
