My cousin Ashley and some of my other myspace friends sometimes post these questionnaires up on the Bulletin Board. I've become sort of fascinated with them so I thought I would fill one out for my blog.

W H O . W A S . T H E . L A S T . P E R S O N

1. You hung out with? Andrew Vladeck, banjo player, songwriter extraordinaire. We start in recording his album January 17th.

2. Rode in a car with? An unlicensed cab driver ("ghost cab") from Broadway and Houston in Manhattan to my apartment in Brooklyn. We drove for several minutes before we settled on the rate. It was the sketchiest New York experience I've had in awhile.

3. Went to the movies with? My girlfriend Lara - "Little Children." Solid. I could recommend it.

4. Went to the mall with? I can't remember the last time I went to the Mall, gratefully.

5. You talked on the phone to? Kevin. He'll be here in about 45 minutes.

6. Made you laugh? Chris Buckridge. I worked with him at the Fall Cafe this morning.

7. You told and/or they told you they loved you? My mom (on the phone).

8. To hug you? My next door neighbor Abbot.

9. To text you? Jess. She's leaving town and didn't get to say goodbye. "Good to see you!"

10. To IM you? Andrew. We were testing out iChat AV on his new Intel Mac. Nerd out! 36 hours to MacWorld, dude!


W O U L D . Y O U . R A T H E R.

1. Pierce your nose or tongue?: Had my tongue pierced once. Remember "Modern Primitives?" Those were the days . . .

2. Be serious or be funny?: Serious character, funny persona.

3. Drink whole or skim milk?: Soy. Unsweetened. But whole, if you insist.

4. Die in a fire or get shot?: Shot. I don't wanna melt like some Nazi on Raiders of the Lost Ark.

5. Spend time with your parents or enemies?: One and the same! Just kidding, mom. Bite me, dad! Just kidding, dad.

A N S W E R . T R U T H F U L L Y.

1. Do you like anyone? Far fewer people than you suspect.

2. Sun or moon? Sun.

3. Winter or Fall? Fall. Although there's little difference anymore as it was 71 degrees in Brooklyn yesterday.

4. Left or right? Left. Be back soon though.

5. 10 acquaintances or two best friends? Two best friends, if they live close enough.

6. Sunny or rainy? Sunny, scattered thundershowers.


A B O U T . Y O U.

1. Gender? Manly.

2. First Name? Thomas.

3. Where do you wanna live? In an incredible wood-floored multi-level combination home and studio (with at least two acoustically isolated studio suites) in a real nice area of Brooklyn. Or Berlin. Pref. one in each.

4. How many kids do you want? None. Max. one, if there was some sort of mishap.

5. Do you want to get married? I'm not above it.

6. Do you twirl your spaghetti or cut it? OK now you're reaching.

7. Favorite ice cream? Probably still chocolate chip cookie dough. Eat the ice cream out first, then binge all the cookie dough at the end after it's softened just a little.

8. How many kinds of cereal are in your cabinet? Zero.

9. Do you cook? Just three nights ago, amazing creamy potato leek soup. And then last night my roommate made DIY salad dressing and we had spinach salad.

10. Current mood?: Stabilized.


I N . T H E . L A S T . 4 8 . H O U R S . H A V E . Y O U.

1. Kissed someone? No. My girlfriend is in India.

2. Sang? Yes. Andrew and I were doing a microphone shootout and I was hollering in the background of his song snippet.

3. Been hugged? Yes.

4. Felt stupid? Yes. Opening the Fall Cafe always makes me feel special because my short term memory is so poor. "Soy? Skim. Medium? Right small. Large. OK. Mocha? Vanilla. OK, um . . . was there a food order with this?"

5. Drank alcohol? No.

6. Danced like crazy? I so wish.

7. Made up a new word? There are so many good ones already.

8. Gotten your hair cut? That was 72 hours ago.

9. Cried? No.

10. Lied? Baby I would never lie to you.

S T U F F .

1. Have you ever been searched by the cops? Canadian border patrol. I had to pee so bad as we were approaching the border and our driver was like, "Just hang on, we'll be right across." They selected us for random (i.e. "you all look like a bunch of drug users") search and wouldn't let us go to the bathroom until they were done. Had to wait an hour. I thought I was going to drown.

2. Do you have a dog? No.

3. When's the last time you've been sledding? With Pascal and Caithlin in Connecticut, winter '99-'00. SO fun.

4. Would you rather sleep with someone else, or alone? Someone else, of course.

5. Do you believe in ghosts? I never did before.

6. Do you consider yourself creative? Yes.

7. Who did you copy this from? My cousin Ashley.

8. Who was the last person who got mad at you? Got MAD at me . . ? "Angry" is different than "unhappy with" . . . hmm might have to get back to you on that one.
