This survey’s hella long, but I’m hella nervous, so this is all you get today.
1: when you have cereal, do you have more milk than cereal or more cereal than milk?

It’s always freaking windy here, so not really, no.

I don’t know if I have a best friend. Is Sean my best friend even though I haven’t talked to him in like 40 years? If I lived with Sean again, there’d be guitars (both real and of the Rock Band variety) EVERYWHERE. We probably wouldn’t be the tidiest of people, either.
15: go google a weird space fact and tell us what it is!

31: what is your opinion of socks? do you like wearing weird socks? do you sleep with socks? do you confine yourself to white sock hell? really, just talk about socks.
I like wearing socks, but that’s mainly ‘cause I’m always so freaking cold. But they have to be ostentatious socks! The weirder, the better.
32: tell us a story of something that happened to you after 3AM when you were with friends.
It was summer 2010 and I was visiting Moscow from Vancouver.

89: are you close to your parents?
Yeah. My mom, especially.
