1. Favorite Book/Author: Aw man this is always such a hard one. I love Shakespeare (he da man), and a lot of the classics like Bronte and Byron. Barbara Kingsolver and Azar Nafisi are terrific. Jasper Fforde is my new favorite "quality fun" read. Big Harry Potter fan, too.

2. Scooby Doo

3. Mmmm--the Simpsons?

4. If I could live anywhere, I think I'd live in London, or San Franscisco or Cleveland Park, this gorgeous wealthy area of DC. Way to rich for my blood. LOL

5. Being someone else? No one. Though I do admire the lovely Mrs. Hewson a lot.

6. my own punk rock band Hey, we're dreaming, right?

7. "Even the hairs on your head have been counted" Gospel of Matthew (or maybe John?).

8. Jon Stewart, Spinal Tap, the Princess Bride, Bill Murray and our own Verte

9. Mmmm...determination, I think.

10. Weak.

that thing was so cool, except it used to scare my little sister (which was fine with me at the time). i also had the much cooler Snake Mountain where Skeletor -- best bad guy EVER -- would hatch cool plots, like he was going to drain all the oxygen from Eternia.

damn. he-man was cool, wasn't he?

(i'm now singing the theme song ... "by the power of Greyskull ... I have the power!" duh-duh-duh-duh-duh, dee duh-duh-duh-duh-duh)

He was the coolest. I called my mom to see if she knew where it was. She sold it. Garage sale. I'm sad now.

I loved He-Man so much that I had a record that went with this book and I had the whole book memorized before I was five because I listened to the record all day. Pretty sick, huh.
My holier than thou cousin said He-man was demonic because it rhymed with D-man and that sounded like demon. I then beat him to death with my Man-E-faces figurine! (j/k...mabye it was demonic!)
