Demmie’s Interview w/ Me…

Here are the rules:
1 — Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2 — I will respond; I’ll ask you five questions.
3 — You’ll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
4 — You’ll include this explanation.
5 — You’ll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.

I should have known better than to have Demmie interview me, but here goes…

1.) What would it take for you to move out of your parents’ place and live on your own, and are you taking any of those steps?

At this point, I’ve been seriously considering it. I’d probably need to straighten up my room (so that I have everything put in its place so it’s easier to move out), find a place I’d actually want to live that’s not a hellish drive from work, and actually get some motivation. I’ve been keeping an eye out, but we’re still in the exploratory stages. (Not to mention the fact that I’d feel guilty leaving them without another source of income and someone to help out when needed.)

2.) If you could always have the perfect woman, or the absolute perfect computer, which would you choose and why?

I don’t believe either exists. :-)

Seriously, though, I’d pick the perfect woman. A computer is a tool. It’s not a companion.

3.) What’s your ideal role-playing situation?

Eh? I’m not sure this is the answer you’re looking for, but the best RP I’ve ever done was this very freeform version of LARP done by my friend Jeff. We didn’t pester anyone in public; we kept to the house and it was fairly loose and informal, but still was the workings of an epic story. I miss those days.

4.) Where were you, (in your journey in life,) one year from today? And where do you honestly think you’ll be a year from now?

I’ve never had a grand plan for my life; I take it one day at a time. I’m not too concerned with the future… anything can happen between now and then. If I had to guess, I’d say I’ll probably be at the same job, doing the same thing, with maybe having moved out.

5.) If you could choose to A. finally have that woman you’ve been longing for that you’ve been best friends with but could just never have, and have it end soon after, or B. never have that relationship but always have the friendship, which would you choose and why?

I’d choose B in a heartbeat. One of my classmates back in high school made a rather poignant observation after her parents got divorced: “You can’t be in love without being friends. It just doesn’t work out.” I value my friends’ friendship, and I would rather not destroy it for a moment of passion that would pass by all too quickly and become only one memory.
