What is your most unusual nighttime or morning ritual?
Night? Promising myself I'll fall asleep and then staying up for two more hours gaming. Morning? Promising myself I'll get up and doing so fifteen minutes later. Oh, you meant unusual? Well, there was that thing with the altar and the Wii U and the jar of peanut butter. . . #TMI
What’s something you should throw away, but can’t?
All my gaming memories so I could relive them all over again. . .
On a scale of 1 to 10, how well do you sing?
That answer has a whole number in it. . .
What books on your shelf are begging to be read?
Geesh, I haven't read a "book" in who knows how many months. . . I've nearly forgotten what the physically printed word is. I suppose I still have yet to finish Troy Denning's the Killik trilogy and Plato's Republic. . . just guess which is the meatier read. ;) Hopefully I'll be picking up Christopher Priest's "The Adjacent" fairly soon too.
Who knows the most about you?
That guy. *points finger ambiguously*
What makes you wake up each morning?
That pesky friend called my bladder requiring me to visit the little gamer's room, but I believe that's the overly biological explanation. . .

How many slices of pizza do you usually eat?
What is the most pointless invention?
Its mother of necessity.
Is shopping a form of entertainment for you?
Depends on if it's for buying something entertaining. If not, then certainly unentertaining to my wallet. . .
What is the strongest animal?
The one that manifests itself in me upon gazing on a taco.
If you could change one thing about Ask.fm what would it be?
Demand less asking and more answers. I mean honestly, when is it that we'll finally get a Super Mario Sunshine 2 already?!
What do you prefer: read the newspaper, watch TV News, or check online news?
Online is the only place to find anything resembling a real headline these days. I haven't ever relied on anything in print and TV news has devolved into a wasteland of ads and sensationalism. Coincidentally, I'm finding that I rely more and more on foreign news outlets for my U.S. headlines. (RT, Al Jazeera, BBC are all excellent ones) I frequent The Young Turks whenever I'm in the mood for some opinionated American debate, preferably the more rational kind.

What's something that you would never wear?
My heart on my sleeve. Might give me coronary distress.
What song is stuck in your head?
I have nothing quippy in answer to that, so I suppose I'll share a real song wit ya:
What is something you find hard to stop once you have started?
Living. I haven't quit yet.
What's one thing you hate having to pay for?
My sanity after an Snickers induced all-nighter binge on gaming.
Do you treat your body like a Temple or more like an Amusement Park?
I find solace in treating it like an amusing temple. Keeps services interesting that way for guests.
Do you love the World you live in?
I have an on-again, off-again relationship with it. We fight, we break up, we make up; it's like some all encompassing soap opera I suppose. . . I hope it gets stellar ratings.
What's a warning sign that you're in the presence of bad company?
When good company starts avoiding you.
What does it mean when a girl smiles at a boy?
He's probably bemused her in some fashion. . . quite often in an undignified way from prior experience. . . :P
Who was the last person you met today?
The undoubtedly friendly peep that asked me this question.
What was the last 'nice' thing you did for yourself?
It's not so much what I've done lately as much as what I'm going to do: down a Doctor Pepper and a chipotle and see Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Hopefully that and plenty of sleep to end off this junior college career.

What's the best concert you've ever been to?
I have yet to attend a live concert. I am forever sad in life. :(
