Friday Five 1. As a

Friday Five

1. As a child, who was your favorite superhero/heroine? Why?
Urk. I gravitated more toward the Marvel superheroes than the D.C. ones. It’s hard to choose a favorite from the short list of Spiderman, Iron Man, and Reed Richards (of the Fantastic Four).
2. What was one thing you always wanted as a child but never got?
Hmm, well its still something I want but I don’t think it exists anymore. I had a small set and always wanted a larger one. There used to be a company that put out blocks that were a lot like dominos in the sense that you could line them up and have them fall in rows and patterns. These blocks had notches and the like to make them even better at setting up complex sequences. I had a small set, always wanted one of the larger ones, but never got it.
3. What’s the furthest from home you’ve been?
London, England, to see my older brother who was on leave from his army base in Germany at the time.
4. What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to learn but haven’t yet?
I’m not good at languages but I would love to learn Latin. I only know a few phrases and the like.
5. What are your plans for the weekend?
See a movie (undecided as to which one), visit the non-Wizards of the Coast gaming store in Orange County, slow cook some chili and watch a few of the new DVDs that came from Netflix, write some turns for Strange Bedfellows and maybe work on some webpages for my Ambercon games.
