What’s a Sonic? Isn’t that some sort of Hedgehog?
5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments?
No, I rarely go anyway.
6. Do you like hot-dogs?
Like a fish likes water. I love hot-dogs, they are the ultimate in cheap-and-nasty fast food, but they are also amazing when you use gourmet ingredients. Really, who doesn’t like a sausage-onna-bun?
7. Favourite Christmas Song?
White Christmas. Bing Crosby – what can I say?

Water, then a coffee.

Sausages, peas, mashed potato, and onion gravy.
11. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?
I don’t wear jewelry. I hate the feeling of anything around my wrists, or fingers. Gloves make me feel incredibly claustrophobic. Wearing chains aound my neck just gives me the heebies. ick!
12. Favorite hobby?
Sleeping. Cooking. Digital Post Production. Writing. I dunno… playing my X-Box, watching French Cinema…
13. Do you work with people who idolize you?
No, of course not.
14. Name a trait that you hate about yourself?
um… I don’t really hate myself anymore. I used to for a long long time, but not anymore.
If I was to change one aspect of myself, it would be to enjoy social interaction. I really don’t get a whole lot out of it except for HUGE amounts of stress and anxiety… so I don’t do it very often.
It comes with being an Autistic Person, and I am completely fine with it… but I will never know that “connection” that other people have with each other and I often wonder what that is like.
15. Middle name?
John. I am Byron John, my cousin is John Byron.
16. Name 3 thoughts at this moment:
1. This is my last shift this week and tomorrow morning I get 4 days off. [don’t get excited for me folks… I get 4 days off every week!]
2. I wish I had some tomato sauce for my cold sausages!
3. My back hurts … again.
17. Name 3 things you bought yesterday:
1. A sandwich
2. Bottle of Gatorade
3. A Chiko Roll
18. Name 3 drinks you regularly drink
1. Water [I adore the taste of water]
19. Current worry right now?
I am waiting for some money from the Government.
20. Current hate right now?
I don’t hate anything. “Hate” is unhealthy. There may be things that annoy me or frustrate me, or even things I find repulisve, but with all things like that – it is my issue to bring myself to an understanding of why I feel that way, and then to learn to let go of those negative feelings.
21. Favourite place to be?
In bed, but if you mean geographically … probably British Columbia, Canada.
22. How did you bring in New Years?
Saving people’s lives.
23. Favourite place to go?
For a holiday?… Sydney Australia, one of the greatest cities in the World!
24. What is your most recurring dream?
I have “hero” dreams where I am leading a rebellion. It can be a war, or just a struggle against social injustice… usually against social injustice. The stories & plots vary, but thematically they are the same.
25. Introvert or extrovert?
Oh God… Introvert all the way.
26. What color shirt are you wearing?
Right now? – Blue, I am at work and in uniform, but otherwise I would be wearing black. I don’t own any other colours when it comes to clothes.
27. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?
ick, shit no, freaking hate them. I like sleeping on rough cotton sheets [not flannel].
28. Can you whistle?
yeah, reasonably well
29. Favourite colour(s)?
Overall – Light Grass Green. But I do adore that electric neon blue.
30. Would you be a pirate?
No. I don’t like wide open spaces. I pretty-much lose my shit if I can’t see land.
31. What songs do you sing in the shower?
I don’t. Showers are for washing not singing.
32. Favorite girl’s name?
Genevieve, but only with the French pronunciation. Using a “soft J”…
33. Favorite boy’s name?
Don’t have one, but I don’t like my name – that’s for damned sure!
34. Who is your loudest friend?
I don’t have any friends. Don’t go “awwww”… remember what I said about “social interaction” back at Question 14? I don’t need friends, I find them too stressful. I get my social interaction quota from work, and from family, and I keep that as minimal as possible.
It is just too damned hard trying to interact with people, so after decades of having “friends” [because that is what “normal” people are supposed to do] I dumped them all, and I am much happoer for it.
My sister can be pretty loud when she wants.
35. What’s in your pocket right now?
36. Last thing that made you laugh?
Stephanie “The Mouse”. Steph has a tendency, from time to time, to say things that just make your jaw hit the ground. She is cute, and sweet, and quietly spoken, but under all of that is the heart and spirit of a lion… a very funny lion. When you catch a glimpse of it, it can be awesome!
37. Bed sheets as a child?
Same as I have now – rough cotton.
38. Worst injury you’ve ever had?
Injured my lower back so badly that I was unable to get out of bed because of the pain. My Chiropractor solved the problem in a matter of minutes.
But the one I regret the most was breaking a finger 6 weeks out from my audition to study at the Conservatorium of Music.
I didn’t even make it to the audition because I failed the 6th Grade Piano exam the week before the audition… You just can’t play Chopin while wearing a plaster cast!
39. Do you love where you live?
Yes, very much so. Quiet neighbourhood, nice people live here. Not much traffic, no crime, close to the shops, video store, hospital, cafes, occassional floods that destroy your house… its great here!
No really, I love it here. You don’t buy on the river bank in Brisbane and not expect that at some time you may get your house flooded.
40. How many TV’s are in your house?
One, but it is FREAKING HUGE… 55inch on the diagonal, Widescreen Format.
41. What is your worst habit?
Chewing my nails. I stopped doing that about 25 years ago, but if I chip one and I don’t have a nail file handy – I can’t help but chew the sucker right off!
42. How many dogs do you have?
I have owned two dogs in my life… but they are both dead.
I do have two cats – does that count?
43. Does someone have a crush on you?
I am so oblivious to social behaviours that I wouldn’t know unless someone actually told me that they do.
44. Do you own slippers?
45. What is your favourite book?
“Where the Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak.
The movie was some seriously fucked-up shit that I would never let a child watch.
46. What is your favorite candy?
I don’t eat lollies [candy]. Seriously, I have been shopping at the same supermarket for 20 years now, and I couldn’t tell you where the “Candy Aisle” is because I have never been down it.
I don’t understand why people get all funny for chocolate. It tastes ok I guess, but its nothing to write home about.
Now Mascarpone-stuffed Bell Peppers… that is another story…
47. What is your favorite sports team?
Any that I don’t have to watch.
I don’t understand sport, and I don’t understand why people get right into it and have a favourite team etc… Its all just a money-making enterprise for major corporations… people might as well sit in a stadium and just scream for Coca-Cola or General Motors Corporation, or Haliburton… the sportsmen are nothnig more than highly paid commodities whose sole purpose is to further the cause of the corporation which pays them.
What’s the big deal with that?
48. What song do you want played at your funeral?
Either “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd, or “Tocatta & Fugue in D Minor” by Bach.
49. What were you doing at 12 AM last night?
50. What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up this morning?
I didn’t wake up until 1pm today, I went to bed at 0730am at the end of my first night-shift. But when I woke up at 1pm I was annoyed that I had woken up.
