1) Name a hobby of yours

Home improvement/repair projects

2) What would your dream job be

That is a very hard question; should it be a dreamy view of the job or a pragmatic one?

3.14) What is your favorite flavor of pie

Key Lime or Bourbon Pecan

4) Coolest Natural wonder that you've seen

Coming across two otters on the river who'd just snagged an enormous carp (its scales where so large that from a distance what had attracted me was thinking I was seeing a gator's belly). Fish still flipping, and then they commenced to eating....smacksmacksmack! Gross, but incredibly cool; we observed from somewhere around 15'-20' away for over 20 minutes.

5) A skill which you wish you had

Marine engine repair! I could make a fortune AND not get ripped off after waiting for weeks on a repair...plus I like problem-solving.

6) What do you like about the Fun and Games forum

The general silliness.

7) Which day of the week is your favorite

Friday; specifically Friday from about 4 p.m. onward...the weekend stretches wide before me, ripe with possibilities, a fresh canvas.

8) Favorite Movie series

There've been several that were a 'good bet', but nothing jumps out at me.
