Time for the all important first Blog post. I'm not really good at introductions, I'll let you get to know me with this "survey" I found from a blog I follow:
Apple juice or orange juice? Orange juice
Are you a morning or night person? Night...definitely.
Which do you prefer, sweet or salty foods? This one is like Sophie's choice, but I'll say sweet (specifically chocolate, it makes everything better).
Ninjas or pirates? Ninjas
Ninjas vs pirates, discuss. Ninjas, hands down. A ninja would kill a pirate before the pirate even knew he was a target.
Autobots or Decepticons? Autobots (I'm a good guy at heart)
What was your favorite childhood television program? X-Men: The Animated Series. Pretty much my reason for getting up on Saturday mornings.
Are you a collector of anything? Not particularly, though if I ever get rich, medieval/ancient weapons.
If you could be any animal, what would you be? Dolphin. Not sure why.
If you could have any superpower, what would it be? Telekinesis. Oh the pranks I could play on people...
What do you usually think about right before falling asleep? Probably some guy.
What is usually your first thought when you wake up? Probably the same exact guy.
What's your favorite color? Green
What's your favorite animal? Cheetahs. Beautiful, graceful, deadly (much like yours truly )
Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets? Like Jodie Foster says in the film "Contact," if we're the only life in the universe, it's a pretty lonely place (by the way, if you haven't seen that film, see it).
Do you believe in ghosts? Honestly, I'm not sure.
Ever been addicted to a video/computer game? Which one(s)? Starcraft, NBA Jams, Sonic the Hedgehog.
You're given 1 million dollars, what do you spend it on? School loans, some musical instruments I used to play, and some of those weapons I was talking about.
Have any bad habits? Laziness (I meant to start this blog some months ago). I'm working on this though.
Which bad habits, if any, drive you crazy? See the last question.
List 3 of your best personality traits: Empathy, thoughtfulness, rationalism
List 3 of your worst personality traits: Laziness x 3
Have any celebrity crushes? Ryan Reynolds, Cristiano Ronaldo, Taye Diggs

Any tattoos or piercings? None. Piercings? Never. Tattoos? A possibility.
What's the first thing you notice in the "opposite" sex? Eyes/smile
What personality traits do you look for in a partner? Kindness/humour (I don't get liking the whole bad-boy thing).
What personality traits do you dislike in other people? Pretentiousness
Are you mostly a clean or messy person? Both. Clean in common areas, but my room is a mess.
Do you see yourself getting married in the next 5 years? Perhaps. All I have to do is change the country first.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? Somewhere in Germany.
If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go? Almost anywhere in western Europe.
List 5 goals on your life's to-do list:
-Work for LGBT rights
-Write a film screenplay (out of left field isn't it)
-Find the man of my dreams (which I may have already done, I just need to man up and ask him out)
Name 1 regret you have: Just one? Not capitalizing when "the guy" was within my grasp (I mean that in the least creepy way possible).
Name 1 thing you miss about being a kid: Not worrying about health (and health care).
Name 1 thing you love about being an adult: Booze (in moderation of course).
What's your favorite song of the moment? "No One's Gonna Love You (more than I do)" by Band of Horses.
What's your favorite song of all time? Too many to say just one, but it's either by Journey or Boston.
What's your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night? Hang out and drink with friends.
What's your favorite thing to do on a Sunday afternoon? Chill, watch the Green Bay Packers beat the pants off of some team (especially the Vikings and the Bears).
Have any hidden talents? It's not really hidden per se, but I was a pretty good French Horn player.
You're about to walk the green mile, what do you have as your last meal? Five Guys. No, not an orgy (you sick !@#$%^&*), Five Guys Burgers and Fries.
What would be your dream job? Film writer.
Which would you rather have, 100 million dollars or true love? True love...with a millionaire. But seriously, being single sucks and is depressing to me more than not having lots of money.
If you could have 3 wishes granted, what would they be? Financial security, not having Brachial Plexus Palsy (don't worry, it's not as serious as it sounds), and finally having "the one" (not Keanu Reeves).
Ever wish you were born the opposite sex? If so, why? And spend all that money on make-up? Hells no.
Name 1 thing not many people know about you: I can be quite affectionate.
If you HAD to change your name, what would you change it to? Probably something European. Alexander perhaps.
Do you believe in the afterlife? There better be. Otherwise, I'm being nice to people who don't deserve it for no reason whatsoever.
On the topic of abortion, how do you feel about cookies? Any with chocolate as well as oatmeal cookies.
There is plenty more where that came from, but it can wait until later.
