Here's cornsail! His interview will run until November 2nd (wow this year happened fast)!<br><br>
Please remember a few simple rules:<br>
-Ask only a few questions at a time.<br>
-At the end of the week, the interviewee will pick who gets interviewed next out of those who participated in his/her thread.<br>
-Please don't argue with the interviewee if she/he says something that you disagree with. It's an interview, not a debate.<br>
-The interviewee can decline to answer any question, and anyone chosen to be interviewed can refuse.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

I'm vegetarian and I avoid obvious animal products like eggs, dairy and leather.<br><br>
-Have you ever met anyone famous?:<br><br>
He's not really famous, but I had dinner with <a href="http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1787710/" target="_blank">this guy</a> once. I could only understand about half of what he said, so it was kind of awkward.<br><br>
-Do you live with any companion animals?:<br><br>
Two recently adopted rabbits, Hazel and Meadow.<br><br>
-Where is your favorite place that you have visited?:<br><br>
I don't know, maybe Portland. I remember liking Germany, but it's been a long time.<br><br>
-What do you enjoy most about being veg*n?:<br><br>
Shivering in the corner while my friends eat pizza.<br><br>
-What's your favorite restaurant?:<br><br>
The Owlery is awesome. Until it came around this year, the only veg'n restaurant in town sucked, sadly.</div>

How did you end up having dinner with that actor/kung fu guy?</div>
</div>
<br>
Not a great story, but it was pretty cool because I liked him in Kung Fu Hustle. I was stuck in the San Fransisco airport on layover at the customer service desk. They were giving us hotel and shuttle vouchers. This quirky Chinese guy was in the same situation and his English was not very good, so he asked if we could help each other. He kept wanting to borrow my phone to call his wife and whoever he was meeting on the other end of his trip. He found me again when I went down for dinner in the hotel restaurant and sat at my table. He said something about being in movies, so I googled his name and figured out who he was later on. He lives in SF apparently.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

I believe it's Sanskrit and I've heard a bunch of different claims about what it means from "clear sky" to "very dark blue" to "the good one". It's a popular Indian name, but I'm English/Scottish/Danish.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

My Arab cat avatar was not a terrorist and I can't remember where it came from to be honest. I found this one with a little googling to participate in the Halloween "find a scary version of your current avatar" club.<br><br>
Cats are a threat, but in a good way. They keep the planet on its toes.

Do you keep any stuffed animals?<br><br>
If you were a cereal, would you be "No sugar added" or "5lb of sugar in a 16oz box"?<br><br>
Do you love bunny noses, or do you <b>love</b> bunny noses?<br><br>
Do you wear any jewelry?<br><br>
Mountains or the ocean?

No<br><br>
I would be "naturally sweet", but it would be false advertizing<br><br>
I'm jealous of bunny noses. I feel like a freak for not being able to wiggle mine.<br><br>
No, I don't really care for jewelry on men or women. I used to shield my eyes from prominent jewlry as a little kid and words like "necklace" or "dangley" still make me cringe a little. I don't know why, maybe it's a "girls have cooties" thing.<br><br>
Both

What are your hobbies?<br><br>
What is your job?<br><br>
Why aren't these things standard questions?<br><br>
Just changing abodes, or are you nomadic (re: the transitory living arrangement)?

I was a cognitive psychology grad student / teaching assistant / research assistant in Ohio for the past couple years, but I recently took a leave and I'm trying to get into a statistics masters program instead. I'm hoping to get a statistics or accounting job for a non-profit after that.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

How much can you bench press?<br><br>
How many times have you read Gödel, Escher, Bach?<br><br>
If you could steal someone else's voice, whose would it be?<br><br>
If they made the movie <i>Children of the Cornsail</i>, who would play your children? Who would play you?<br><br>
How does one's interests transition from cog sci to accounting? Or did they not?

Statistics is an important part of cog sci and I learned to love it. I don't know a ton about accounting, but there's some intersection with stats and I can take a CPA to make myself open to accounting. The job market is good for both of the two fields right now, although I'm more interested in statistics.<br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

<br>
I like one cats-in-clothes avatar (for no particular reason) and I changed to a different one to participate in the "use a scarier version of your avatar for Halloween club". After Halloween I'll probably be done with cat avatars.<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/c/ca/ca1317be_vbattach16980.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/c/ca/525x525px-LL-ca1317be_vbattach16980.jpeg" style="width:320px;height:180px;"></a>
