1. Who’s one celebrity you’d want to be handcuffed to for a week?

Handcuffed to for a week?  I mean, that really depends on how. If it’s back to back like you’re both dangerous felons or if it’s just one wrist to another. For the sake of simplicity, lets just go one wrist to another shall we… I’m gonna go with Christopher Plummer. That man is so well read I’m sure I’d get an education in story telling.

2. Do you have any weird talents?

Weird Talents? Can’t say I do, or if I do maybe I just don’t think of them as weird. 

3. What’s your worst date story?

Worst date story? Man… The abridged version is this… My date came to my place after a day out, walked in, opened my liquor cabinet, started slamming whisky, acting wild then suddenly as if hearing something loudly whispered in my ear  “they’re watching us” I asked “who?” she replied “THEM!” again “Who’s THEM?”  She let out an exasperated breath…  “Did you do it?!” now I asked “What?” she hauntingly continues  “You can tell me if you did” … “I have no idea what you’re talking about” she stares “I’d lie for you” my bewildered and freaked out response “ooooook, no idea what you’re talking about” she lets out another exasperated breath “did you kill somebody? You can tell me, I’d lie for you” At this point I’m wishing I could Zeta Beam my ass outta there but, unfortunately that technology didn’t exist yet… my dog was growling at her clearly not liking this person and myself wondering how I’m gonna get her out of there… It was almost like one of those choose your own adventure books “if you decide to see where this is going, turn to page 86” “If you decide to excuse yourself and pretend to throw up as if suddenly sick in hopes she will leave, turn to page 54” “call the cops turn to page 92” … Let’s just say I turned to page 54 “I’m sorry must’ve been the chicken I ate. I think I need to be alone and tough this out.” you say.  “They’ll stay and look after you” she says as she walks towards the door, it opening without her ever touching it, then oddly locks on it’s own. You look out the window and there’s no sign of her. You breath a sigh of relief but your dog begins to growl at the door. Turn to page 103.

4. What technology do you hope is invented in your lifetime?

I’d love it if reliable rocket packs were invented. Then you could live anywhere and not worry about the “commute.”

5. Who’s your favorite superhero?

Honestly, my favorite superhero is Batman. I love Superman as well but Batman has always fascinated me.

6. Which Kardashian do you wish was your sibling in real life? (And yes, Kanye counts)

I don’t want any Kardashian as my sibling. I’m happy with the family I’ve got.

7. Finish this sentence, "Last Friday night I..."

Last Friday night I… listened to some John Lee Hooker and worked on my motorcycle.

8. Do you have any songs completely memorized?

Who doesn’t have songs completely memorized. I have a lot. Growing up my mom always listened to Patsy Cline in the car so during all the trips to school and hockey games I’m pretty confident I know all of her songs by heart to this day.

9. What Krypton house would you be in?

Which house would Adam Strange be in or which house would I be in? Of course I’d want to be with Adam Strange, but if you’re twisting my arm I’d have to go with the house of Vex just to stir shit up.

10. What’s your guilty pleasure?

Guilty pleasure would have to be passion fruit mousse. It’s insanely good.

11. If you could only watch one movie for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

Easy. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
