3. What’s your middle name?
Aaron

4. Your current relationship status?
Single and playfully prowling.

I’d probably change the wording of a few of my emails, not that it would do any good. Its temping to say I’d leave the pub after I paid my bill on Bloody Wednesday, but ultimately I think that situation has helped to resolve some long standing issues that weren’t going away on their own, shitty though that may be.

11. If you MUST be an animal for ONE day- what would you be?
Can I be that big monster from Return of the Jedi and eat people?

Minor case of the bends, don’t recommend it.

Masturbate, drink, daydream…

The same song I’m listening to, The Man’s too Strong by the Dire Straits.

French – but I need to practice it more before I move to Montreal.

30. What’s your favorite smell?
A spring forest, though oddly enough when I haven’t smelt it for a while kerosene/jet fuel is kind of comforting. Oh god. I also like that special sewerfresh smell you get in drains. that probably tips me into the weird category for sure.
