1. Your Middle Name: Alexander
2. Age: 41 (or 493, in months)
3. Single or Taken: Taken
4. Favourite Movie: Hard to choose just one (The Silence of the Lambs, Patton, Billy Elliot)
5. Favourite Song or Album: Impossible to choose one
6. Favourite Band/Artist: Again, too hard to choose, but I like the Beatles, I like Rufus Wainwright and many others
7. Dirty or Clean: Depends on if you mean dishes, sex or something else. I'll think of it the way I want and say dirty.
8. Tattoos and/or Piercings: None.
9. Do we know each other outside of LJ? I gather this was a LiveJournal post? So if that means "do we know each other in real life," then yes.
10. What's your philosophy on life? Plan and be prepared for the future but live in the now, too, because the future may not come.
11. Is the bottle half-full or half-empty? Half full.
12. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest? Yes, but only if I was certain the truth would only hurt you.
13. What is your favorite memory of us? Hmmm. Any time hanging out with you makes for great memories!
14. What is your favorite guilty pleasure? I gather this means food or something like that, not things like trying to get Marc pregnant? If that's the case, then I'd say a big hot fudge sundae.
15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: I'm related to a famous architect.
16. You can have three wishes (for yourself, so forget all the 'world peace etc' malarky) - what are they? Great wealth (not fame, just wealth), good health for me and all my friends & loved ones, and being irresistible to the same sex.
17. Can we get together and make a cake? Sure!
18. Which country is your spiritual home? The United States is my home in every sense, but if I had to choose another one my spirit could spend a lot of time in France.
19. What is your big weakness? I can't leap tall buildings in a single bound.
20. Do you think I'm a good person? Yes!
21. What was your best/favorite subject at school? In HS, science. In college, history.
22. Describe your accent: Mild New York accent.
23. If you could change anything about me, would you? I would never presume to do so--besides, if I made you the world's hottest guy (besides Marc) with a huge crush on me, G would be pissed!
24. What do you wear to sleep? Boxer briefs.
25. Trousers or skirts? Trousers.
26. Cigarettes or alcohol? Alcohol, but very little.
27. If I only had one day to live, what would we do together? Oh, honey, I got over the phase many years ago! ;) Okay, okay. I'd love to whisk you away for a fabulous day in Paris.
28. Will you repost this so i can fill it out for you? Sure.

12. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest? yes
13. What is your favourite memory of us? Your performing in the reading of my play
14. What is your favourite guilty pleasure? Googling. I just found Samson's Myspace and OMG!! Does he look Mephistophelian to the 100th power. Not just the orange suit now but a fakey leopard coat over it. I SWEAR if I didn't know him I would think he was a perv, I mean a big time one.
15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: You know this, but my entire life changed in an instant when Samson spun me around in his arms, bent me over backwards, and stared into my eyes at the end of Mon Coeur. Just like a movie. But it's really true.
16. You can have three wishes (for yourself, so forget all the 'world peace etc' malarky) - what are they?
1. Freedom from fear.
2. A do-over beginning at age 30 (guess that means I'd have to turn the clock back to 1980) knowing everything I know now including about singing.

17. Can we get together and make a cake? Sure
18. Which country is your spiritual home? England

20. Do you think I'm a good person? Absolutely!
21. What was your best/favourite subject at school? English
22. Describe your accent: Upscale Northeastern NOT "New Yawk"
23. If you could change anything about me, would you? You may kill me for this but I would want you to stop drinking (maybe come with me to a meeting?) SHE DUCKS AND RUNS FOR COVER.
24. What do you wear to sleep? If I'm by myself old pjs. Sometimes nothing if it's hot.
25. Trousers or skirts? Skirts! When I realized how unhappy I was wearing the pants in the family I stopped wearing pants almost entirely except for jeans on the weekend (this was largely unconscious).
26. Cigarettes or alcohol? Neither. They both almost ruined my life (I think cigarettes DID perhaps ruin my chances of having a singing career.)
27. If I only had one day to live, what would we do together? Whateer you wanted.
28. Will you repost this so i can fill it out for you? Yopu already did.
