1) 50-55

2) Gaius Julius Ceasar or Andrew Jackson.

3) Ohio. Because it's the the best state in the union. The rest suck.

4) Trick question. All of Walken's performances are his best.

5) Brown eyes. I've always like girls with dark eyes.

1. At what age do you hope to be retired by?

-I quit my job today, after 3 years. Does that count? If not, well, I guess it's going to be a while...

2. What's the most interesting biography you've ever read (or for those with ADD, watched)?

-Too many to name. I'll throw out a documentary on the Netflix instant queue called "Dear Zachary". Not a biography, per se, but an incredible documentary.

3. If you had to be named after one of the 50 states, what would it be?

-I can't think of anything witty, so let's just say Ohio.

4. Name Christopher Walken's best performance?

-As mentioned earlier, the Hopper/Walken scene in True Romance was amazing. I'll say SNL's The Continental and that music video where he's dancing around.

5. Blue, green or brown eyes (Let it fly, boys)?

-Mine are greenish (and they're very pretty, or so I've been told :nanner: ). If we're talking preference...I don't have one I guess. I guess I'll say brown.

North Dakota, obviously

1. At what age do you hope to be retired by?

Never. I don't want to wither away. I would want to decrease hours, but not actually quit until my body / mind start to fail me.

2. What's the most interesting biography you've ever read (or for those with ADD, watched)?

Tough question. Probably "No one here gets out alive" by Hopkins & Sugarman. I think I read it in about 5 hours when I was 15.


3. If you had to be named after one of the 50 states, what would it be?

Washington. Boom Boom.

4. Name Christopher Walken's best performance?

Biloxi Blues, but really amped to see him in the Danny Green movie.

5. Blue, green or brown eyes (Let it fly, boys)?

Eyes.... eyes..... do I ever look that high up? Always in context, never stand alone, but generally the lighter the better.

1. At what age do you hope to be retired by?

Well, I was hoping to be retired by now. (I'm 34.) But I'll settle for 50. ;-) ;) :wink:

2. What's the most interesting biography you've ever read (or for those with ADD, watched)?

Hitler: A Study in Tyranny by Alan Bullock. The chapter about the 1932 elections is enthralling.

3. If you had to be named after one of the 50 states, what would it be?

Washington. Pretty much the only state named after a guy and not a girl.

4. Name Christopher Walken's best performance?

[b]At Close Range. It was before he became somewhat of a caricature of himself. I also think that's his best movie overall.

5. Blue, green or brown eyes (Let it fly, boys)?

Blue.
