Twenty Questions:

Favorite class you took in college: Intro to Horror Film. It was a Lit class and it may not have been terribly deep. But how often do you get credit for watching "Nosferatu"?

Faulkner and Morrison. Mine, too was a Lit class, but need I say more about these two great authors.

Favorite Drive (or ride): Highway 9 to Highway 35 to Highway 92. A classic ride. Rest in peace, Pumbaa, my friend. Highway 70 between Marysville and Oroville. Miles of peach and kiwi trees with a houseboat waiting at the end.
Favorite Book: Melville's Moby Dick, Joyce's Ulysses, and Nabokov's Pale Fire. Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, Morrison's Song of Solomon, Nabokov's Lolita.
Favorite Pokemon character: Charmander Pikachu (this was a lame question, Jordy)
All-time favorite song: This one was tough and will likely change a dozen times in the next ten minutes. But U2's "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" is my pick for favorite song. I choose Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth's "They Reminisce Over You" because it is an intelligent rap song that still speaks to me after 10 years.
Favorite Artist: Toss up between Van Gogh and the vivid Marc Chagall. Jacob Lawrence
Favorite phrase from a poem: "I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker,
And I have seen the eternal Footman hold my coat, and snicker,
And in short, I was afraid."

"Let us go now, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherized on a table:"

Favorite Food: Annatee's Orgasmic Fried Chicken. Bacon, egg, and American cheese on toasted white bread with mayonaise.
Favorite Dog type: Jack Russel Terrier Great Dane
Favorite Holiday: Thanksgiving Valentine's Day
Favorite Tree: Bay Laurel California Live Oak
Travel fantasy: Toss-up: Castro's Cuba by seaplane, or north to the arctic circle by motorcycle. Crossing the West on horseback.
Most overused phrase "Come on, you little beast!" "Raaaaaaar! "
Chinese Astrological Animal: Wood Tiger Fire Snake

Favorite Cereal Cheerios Whole Foods' French Vanilla granolla
Favorite alcholic drink Rum and Coke White Russian
