Everything you ever wanted to know about me!
Meme! I haven't done one of these in a while, but this actually looked like fun, so here goes. Also, I realized that my answers are insanely long, so I edited it to have one-work answers, with commentary!

Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile.:
-I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity (until I get bored)
-Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
-Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

So90scartoonman asked me:

1)If you had to spend the rest of your life only reading one comic book company, what would it be?


Yeah, while I would miss Captain America and the Fantastic Four a whole lot (not to mention anything I might pick up from the smaller companies, or the manga companies) it has to be DC all the way. Although, are we counting Vertigo and CMX? In which case DC wins doubly over. (I've got Sandman and Swan? Yay!) But even if you limited it to the mainstream stuff, I'd still be there. Moaning and griping, but firmly in the DC camp.

2)What's your favorite TV show?


I don't know! Um, um, there are so many! (My roommate laughed when I asked her to help me on this one.) I'll be totally honest and say that Law and Order is the one show I can basically watch anywhere, anytime. But I won't buy it, as repeat episodes tend to lose their impact. In terms of shows I have spent money on - Batman: TAS, Princess Tutu and Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad are the only ones on my shelf. I currently watch a buttload of shows regularly (see this previous post) My Amazon wishlist includes Buffy, Angel, Mad Men, Ouran High School Host Club, Justice League (and Unlimited) the Superman Animated Series, Cowboy Bebop, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Firefly (which is NOT my favorite show after the second go-round. Space prostitutes...), The West Wing, Pride and Prejudice BBC edition (it's kind of a TV show) and Arrested Development.

Huh, Arrested Development might win, at that. At least the first 2 seasons. I've rewatched it at least three times now, and I still want to buy it. Hmmmm.

3)Roughly, how much do you spend on comics per month?


Hoo boy. At my height, I was spending around $60+ a month (including back issues/trades I just Could Not Wait For!). I now wince at the thought. These days, due to the fact that I am immersing myself in a lot of different mediums (see: Media Studies major) I'm not picking anything up monthly, although I did grab all of Wednesday Comics. I'm keeping tabs on my favorite characters, but I'm sticking with trades, and I'm trying to only buy them in cost effective ways, like Amazon.com. But every time I manage to step into a comic shop, I can't stop myself and buy about $10 in random issues. (I can't help it!) I'd say I'm keeping it under $25 a month on average. I'm much more focused on quality these days.

4)Where are you from originally?


I was born in New York City! Columbia University hospital, I believe? That's where I was imbued with powers beyond those of mortal men and I dedicated my life to helping the helpless with truth, justice and the American Way! Perhaps that explains my undying love for the city that could really use some sleep.

5)How do you like your eggs?


Scrambled and moist, but not runny. If they are too dry (which happens to me a lot when I cook) I add salsa for moistness and flavor. My ideal eggs also include cheese and vegetables. (favorites including mushrooms, onions, and peppers) Weren't expecting such a crazy answer, were you?

Yeah, I though my last answer was unnecessarily long, then I looked back at the second question. Ooops.

Yeah, wasn't expecting that egg thing. Interesting bit about the TV show, it's never an easy answer. Arrested Development is awesome, though.
