(ultra mega mass special toukon retsouden super double daily weekend post!)
NAME: Stephen Doyle Foster, Junior
BIRTHDATE: January 11, 1987
EYE COLOR: Blue
HAIR COLOR: Blonde leading towards brown, with the occasional rust-colored highlight
JOB: You're kidding, right?
SCHOOL: Gainesville State College, home of the Fighting Geese
FAVE CLOTHING STORE: As much as I shop for clothes (i.e., almost never), Wal-Mart
FAVE RESTAURANT: Humble Grounds (R.I.P.)
OBSESSIONS: Wrestling (lucha in particular), comic books, curling (right now)
DO YOU LIVE IN THE MOMENT?: Never
DO YOU HAVE ANY SECRETS?: Too many to name
DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?: Yes, although I can't think of a single person other than me who likes it
WHAT'S YOUR BIGGEST FEAR?: Bears. Specifically, the North American Grizzly
CAN YOU SING?: Not particularly well
WHAT ARE YOUR #1 PRIORITIES IN LIFE? Getting through school in one piece so I can get a decent job and grind out a life
ARE YOU A DAREDEVIL?: In that I am a blind Columbia-educated lawyer with heightened senses and at the peak of human athletic ability, yes.
WHAT'S YOUR GREATEST WEAKNESS? Kryptonite. Or possibly the color yellow. Or the code word "Abraxas".
DO YOU THINK YOU'RE EMOTIONALLY STRONG?: Not a bit.
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU REGRET DOING/NOT DOING?: Can anyone honestly answer "no" to this question?
WHAT'S THE MOST IMPORTANT LESSON YOU'VE LEARNED?: Strongbad is a bad guy, bad guy.
ARE YOU CONFIDENT?: Outwardly, yes. Inwardly, no.
ARE YOU PERCEIVED WRONGLY?: Absolutely, nearing 100%.
DO DRUGS?: Only as prescribed by a physician or a bass guitarist.
READ THE NEWSPAPER?: Maybe half of the time.
PRAY?: Not as much as I probably should.
GO TO CHURCH?: I don't really believe in the concept of a "group faith", as I believe faith is a personal, one-on-one relationship that doesn't have to be displayed publicly on a weekly basis to be strong. To me, being "showy" with faith kind of masks the truth, and can act as a crutch for people with faith that may not be strong enough to be stand on its own.
(Sorry about the editorializing and digression. On with the show.)
TALK TO PEOPLE EVEN THOUGH YOU HATE THEM?: All the time.
WOULD YOU OR HAVE YOU EVER...
HURT YOURSELF?: Not on purpose
BEEN OUT OF THE COUNTRY?: No
BEEN IN LOVE?: That depends on the definition of the word "is". And I'm being completely serious, not pulling a Clinton-ism out of my hat.
HAD A MEDICAL EMERGENCY?: I slammed my finger in a car door once. I still have a chip missing out of one of my fingers.
HAD SURGERY?: Yes
RAN AWAY FROM HOME?: No
PULLED AN ALL-NIGHTER?: Not often, thank God

BEEN BETRAYED?: Yes
MADE OUT WITH A STRANGER? No
DO YOU BELIEVE IN...
LIFE ON OTHER PLANETS?: With the size and scope of the universe, there almost has to be something out there.
A THING CALLED LOVE?: Just listen to the rhythm of my heart.
GHOSTS?: In a manner of speaking, yes.
LUCK?: As an abstract principle of the universe, yes.
LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT?: Not so much love as pheromonal interaction in the reptilian sub-brain. So yes.
YIN AND YANG?: In a manner of speaking. More "Ahuramazda and Ahriman" than "Yin and Yang". A "yetzer hara and a yetzer hatov", if you will. Really, more of an aggadic view than anything. (Look it up!)
IS IT POSSIBLE TO REMAIN FAITHFUL FOREVER?: I'll give it shot, given the opportunity
DO YOU CONSIDER LOVE A MISTAKE?: It's possible, but in hindsight, anything can look like a mistake. In the moment, no.
WHAT DO YOU FIND ROMANTIC?: Most people would say sense of humor, but I'd have to go with breast size.
TURN-OFF?: Penises. I can deal with pretty much anything else, but if you've got a penis, I'll have to pass.
DO YOU WISH IT WAS MORE ACCEPTABLE FOR A GIRL TO ASK A GUY OUT?: Absolutely, mainly because I'm fairly sure I will never build up enough courage to ask a woman out. Sober, at least. (I'm working on that.) (The courage part, not the sober part.) (I'm not really working on the courage part, but it sounds good.)
WHAT'S THE BEST ABOUT THE OPPOSITE SEX?: Vaginas and breasts.
WHAT'S THE WORST ABOUT THE OPPOSITE SEX?: Three little letters. Can you guess what they are?
WHO'S THE LAST PERSON THAT BROKE YOUR HEART?: Let's see. In terms of totally shattering my heart, I'll have to reach back almost a decade and go with Ms. SS. In terms of just dissappointment, I'll have to go with KD, with the alley-oop from CF.
WHAT DID YOU DO YESTERDAY?: Went to school, watched curling, cooked a roast.
WHAT MEMORY DO YOU MISS THE MOST?: How can I tell you if I miss the memory. By definition, I wouldn't remember it. What a stupid question.

FAVE SHAMPOO: Prell (old school, baby)
FAVE PERFUME: Wouldn't know the difference, merely that you had some on.
FAVE GIRL'S NAME: I seem to have this thing for girls with names beginning with the letter K. I have no idea why. I'd love it if someone could explain it to me, and perhaps break me of the habit. (Or not.)
