Three people played my little quiz last week. One, Scott, answered in his blog. One, M., answered by e-mail, and the third, Uthaclena, answered in the comments.
So, now, beware: it’s my time to turn the tables and see if I can answer the same questions about them.
Where did we meet (can be electronically – if so, how did you come to this blog, and if applicable, how did I come to yours)?
S: Actually, I think he linked to my blog, or at least cited my blog, I noticed in Technorati. So I went to his blog, liked what I saw, and voila.
M: At church, mid-to-late 1980s.
U: September 12, 1971 in the basement of Bliss Hall, State University College at New Paltz, probably in a food line.
Take a stab at my middle name.
S: No idea. Bet it starts with a consonant.
M: Starts with L. Louise? No idea.
U: Starts with A.
Yes, my middle name is Owen.
Do I smoke?
S: The rare cigar.
U: Nothing legal.
No, I don’t.
Color of my eyes.
S: Look bluish in photos.
Mine are brown.
Do I have any siblings? If so, where am I in the birth order?
S: Fortunately, you answered that here. You’re the eldest, as am I.
M: Seems as though I’ve met a brother who I think is older.
U: You have two younger brothers.
I have two younger sisters, Leslie and and Marcia.

M: Listen to music.
U: Listen to music.
Whereas I NEVER listen to music, he lied.
What’s my favorite type of music?
S: Prog rock.
M: At your wedding, you had someone play Ripple, so I’m going with the Dead, though you certainly like your Beatles.
U: While you like your 1960s music, you also appreciate progressive jazz.
My tastes are fairly eclectic, though 1960s Motown and Beatles are important.
Am I shy or outgoing?
S: Comfortable in your own skin.
M: Shyly outgoing.
U: Depends on the situation.
I’m probably more shy than people think.
Am I a rebel or do I follow the rules?
S: Tries to keep to the rules, except when they don’t make sense.
M: Definitely knows the rules, will follow them if necessary.
U: Hates many of the rules, avoids them when he can, suffers them when he can’t.
ME? I subvert the stupid ones whenever possible.
Any special talents?
S: You know more about hockey than I will ever know.
M: You’re extremely talented at putting people at ease.
U: Your time as a bartender has served you well.
U identified my kazoo skills.
How many children do I have?
S: You are always making plans for Nigel.
M: One under 18, plus.

I have Lydia.
If you and I were stranded on a desert island, what is one thing that I would
S: Some tome.
M: A first aid kit.
U: Sufficient firewood.
Me? A World Almanac
AND for a bonus question, you can share any other factoid you deign to share, as long as it’s about me, and it’s truthful. Preferably not mean.

M: She used to be a party animal!
U: About the only person who could actually blackmail me.
