Which cartoon character would you most like to switch lives with? 
Garfield. (Sticking with the sleeping theme)

Would you rather be a tiny elephant or a giant hamster?
Hamster. My wife says I sneeze like one anyway.

What was your favorite toy as a child?


When you were 6 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I don’t think I had a career plan laid out but I liked to tinker with electronics so I knew it would be something technical.

If you were a cupcake, what flavor would you be? 
Red velvet with cream cheese icing.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever eaten?

When I had long hair and a beard I got Jesus a lot. These days, I don’t know.

If you were a Smurf, what would your Smurf name be?
Grumble Smurf

If you were a Crayola crayon, what color would you be?

What one food do you wish had zero calories? 
Sour Cream. I eat it on a surprising number of things.

If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?
Steak with fries. And plenty of sour cream.


If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to see? 
One of Tesla’s demonstrations. I built a little Tesla Coil when I was a kid.

If you could only drink one beer for the rest of your life, what would it be? 
Delirium Tremens. Or maybe La Fin du Monde

What is your theme song? 
I don’t have one. That doesn’t make me a weirdo, right? Right?

If your house was burning down, what’s the one (non-living) thing you would save?
Once the family is out safe there isn’t much else that can’t be replaced. But I’m sure in the weeks after I will regret that decision.

What would be the title of your autobiography? 
Not sure, but I do know it would be ghost written. I hate writing about myself. This survey is torture.

If you were to write a self help book, what would the topic be?
As I answers these questions my dislike for hypothetical questions has grown that much more. That’s a good place to start.

What would you like to be famous for? 
I don’t want to be famous. That’s why I work behind the scenes.
