Well, since nobody else volunteered, I guess I'll be the guinea pig and go first...  :-\


 1.  Do you brown bag your lunch, or go out for lunch...?

Well, since I do much of my job from home, I just make a salad and sit down on the couch! If I'm at the office though, I normally skip lunch altogether.

 2.  Have you ever voted in the opposite political party to which you now belong?
Well, since I consider myself an Independent, I guess the answer would be "Yes". I vote Democratic most of the time.

 3.  Have you ever walked or bicycled to work in order to be more environmentally friendly?
No, but I have walked to work before (the ones that were located close to my house).

 4.  Do you belong to a club, or organization?  If so, state if possible.
Yes. Oh, and you want me to tell you. I belong to several gay organizations, including the gay-straight alliance here in Indianapolis. I also belong to a local chamber orchestra.

 5.  Do you have a private Doctor, or a HMO? 
I have a private doctor, and sometimes I think he's getting tired of hearing from me! I can be a bit of a hypochondriac sometimes.
 
 6.  What would be your choice if you could pick,,,the present insurance we have in this
        country,,,or national medical insurance?
Well, since I have health insurance through my company, I'm satisfied with what I have. But, I do feel very badly for those who are uninsured. So, I would be very happy with National Medical Insurance.

 7.  How many years have you lived in your present home, or apartment?
About 5 years. I love my little house. It's a cape cod style home built in the 1920's. It's cute!

 8.  Do you let your kids pick their own clothes,,or do you do it for them...?
        If you dont have kids, do you take other peoples opinion on your wardrobe?
Do I TAKE other people's opinion? No. I will listen to their opinions, but I normally end up ignoring it and make my own choices. I'm gay! Aren't we supposed to have excellent fashion sense? I'm joking!!

 9.  Have you ever went to a party or event, in totally inappropriat attire?
Yes. And I don't care to discuss it. lol
       
10.  Would you like to wear designer clothes if you could afford it, or prefer to
        get them off the rack, because you dont care that much for clothes...?
Designer honey!! Designer. Definately!

Great questions!

Okay. Who's next?  It didn't hurt that bad!  ;)

1.  Do you brown bag your lunch, or go out for lunch...?  I usually have ready-to-go food at work - frozen dinners or dehydrated stuff...once in awhile I go out with coworkers (or alone if I'm *REALLY* needing a break!).

2.  Have you ever voted in the opposite political party to which you now belong?  I'm registered as an Independent, but I change it every so often if I'm interested in the local elections.  Here in small-town USA, the primary frequently settles it, so sometimes you have to change party affiliations to be able to vote for a viable candidate.

3.  Have you ever walked or bicycled to work in order to be more environmentally friendly?  Absolutely!  It's what I loved most about living in Boston - that I could bike to work (or cross-country ski! ) on a converted rail-to-trail.

4.  Do you belong to a club, or organization?  If so, state if possible.  Nothing really local...ACLU, PFLAG, Amnesty International, Greenpeace, Earthsave...your usual liberal assortment.  ;)

5.  Do you have a private Doctor, or a HMO?  A private doctor - our family's GP is just the best - old school mannerisms but completely brilliant.

6.  What would be your choice if you could pick,,,the present insurance we have in this country,,,or national medical insurance?  I think we need to give national medial insurance a try.  My latest peeve is the shenanigans pulled by Congress to keep us from buying drugs from Canada.

7.  How many years have you lived in your present home, or apartment? Seven months in this teeny apartment- already one month longer than planned...prior to that 8 years.

8.  Do you let your kids pick their own clothes,,or do you do it for them...?  If you don't have kids, do you take other peoples opinion on your wardrobe?  If I had kids, I'd let them pick their own as much as possible.  I really don't take other people's opinion about my wardrobe...I go for functional whenever possible and have zero sense of fashion.  ASIDE:  I did take a colleagues advice once about getting my eyebrows waxed...learned my lesson, I assure you!  :-\ :P

9.  Have you ever went to a party or event, in totally inappropriate attire?  Nothing really comes to mind.  I guess I overdress when I go out to hear a band or something...I feel kinda foolish in my old neo-hippie clothes so I usually end up dressing up more than the younger crowd.

10.  Would you like to wear designer clothes if you could afford it, or prefer to get them off the rack, because you don't care that much for clothes...?  There was a time in my life that designer clothes were de rigueur.  I don't miss it.  I have a few select pieces, carefully chosen or retained, but mostly I don't care much about it...function over form.

This may be what I need - a personal shopper!  I didn't get that fashion jean gene.  I own maybe 8 pairs of shoes (most of my gf's have upwards of 40!!!).

   1.  Do you brown bag your lunch, or go out for lunch...?

   I bring my lunch everyday.  Well ... most everyday.

   I'm a card carrying member of the Democratic Party.  That said ... if I can't support the candidate on the ticket ... I don't.

   When I was at school yes.  Now I work about a 25 minute drive from home.

   I am a lifetime member of Alphi Phi Omega co-ed community service fraternity.

1.  Do you brown bag your lunch, or go out for lunch...? Most days I brown bag my lunch and sit at my desk to eat alone, working through my lunch break, taking calls, etc. Occasionally I will go to a local restaurant for lunch with work colleagues, or grab a bite to eat in the staff cafeteria.

2.  Have you ever voted in the opposite political party to which you now belong? Yes, many years ago, when I first started voting, my political leanings were completely in the opposite direction to where they are at present.

3.  Have you ever walked or bicycled to work in order to be more environmentally friendly? I don't know how to ride a bicycle (I can roller-skate, though!) and it's too far away for me to walk to work, even though I do love walking.

4.  Do you belong to a club, or organization?  If so, state if possible. I never have been a "joiner." I prefer one-on-one interaction. "Teamwork" is a dirty word to me, even though I have to pretend to be a team player at work.

5.  Do you have a private Doctor, or a HMO? I have my own private doctor, who is gay.
 
6.  What would be your choice if you could pick,,,the present insurance we have in this country, or national medical insurance? I live in Australia, where we have free elementary health cover when one is admitted to a public hospital. I prefer to pay for my own private health insurance, which covers care in private health facilities and also an extensive range of additional ancillary health services.

7.  How many years have you lived in your present home, or apartment? 14 years.

8.  Do you let your kids pick their own clothes,,or do you do it for them...? If you dont have kids, do you take other peoples opinion on your wardrobe? I don't have children (I'm gay). No-one has ever criticised my wardrobe - to my face!!! I'm a very conservative dresser - dark business suits for work and jeans/cotton shirts for casual. The dominant colour of my wardrobe is black.

9.  Have you ever went to a party or event, in totally inappropriat attire? Many years ago I attended a gay function that I thought was supposed to be a denim and leather theme, which is how I dressed. When I got there it was a very prissy cashmere and paisley affair. It was embarrassing, but it certainly taught me a lesson!
      
10.  Would you like to wear designer clothes if you could afford it, or prefer to  get them off the rack, because you dont care that much for clothes...? I'm very "blokey" when it comes to clothes, and shopping in general. I'm a conservative dresser, who is not fond of shopping.

1.  Do you brown bag your lunch, or go out for lunch...?  Used to be I'd say I go out for lunch.  But a combination of tricky financial times and also being on Nutri-System (trying to lose 20 pounds - I'm down six so far) have neccessitated my brown-bagging it.  I have a stash of NS stuff, now.  I nuke (microwave) it, eat it, and go for a walk.  In times past, I'd go out to lunch either to run errands or to meet my favorite lunch time buddie Jackie at one of our three or four favorite haunts.  We've always favored Italian.  This one place makes a pasta fagiole soup and penne a la vodka that are to die for.  Sigh.  I miss those lunches...

2.  Have you ever voted in the opposite political party to which you now belong?  I'm currently registered as Independent.  But I'm really a Democrat (actually a Bleeding-Heart Liberal, but there is no such party at this time).  They just pissed me off by so horribly mishandling Kerry in the last election that I defected.  So have I ever voted Republican?  I'm sorry to say that I have.  For Reagan in 1984 (my roommate said, and I quote, "But he's a fucking ACTOR!") and for, God help me, George Herbert Walker Bush in 1988.  I then voted for Perot in 1992, Clinton in 1996, Gore in 2000, and Kerry in 2004.  My father nearly disowned me when he learned of my voting record since 1992.  We are Western New York Republicans by birth.  I apparently didn't get that gene, though.  Must be recessive.

3.  Have you ever walked or bicycled to work in order to be more environmentally friendly?  Yes.  Didn't stick with it, though.  I know.  I suck.

4.  Do you belong to a club, or organization?  If so, state if possible.  Nope.  Not much of a joiner.  Never have been.  I support a lot of causes, like Amnesty International, the Nature Conservancy, and the ACLU.  But I wouldn't consider myself a member of those clubs per ce.

5.  Do you have a private Doctor, or a HMO?  I have a PPO.  Whatever that means.  Funny thing - I still don't have a regular "family doctor."  My OB-GYN is basically my internist.  She refers to me specialists when need be.  If I have a sinus infection, I go to the Doc-in-a-Box (walk-in clinic) to get my antibiotic fix.  Wrong, I know.  But I've tried a few doctors here in Florida and they've generally let me down in one way or another. 
 
6.  What would be your choice if you could pick,,,the present insurance we have in this country,,,or national medical insurance?  Definitely national insurance.  I guess I'm just a big ol' Socialist, but I think decent health care for every man, woman and child is a right and not a privilege.

7.  How many years have you lived in your present home, or apartment?  Two.  I've lived in my present town (Boca Raton) for almost 14 years, now.  But we moved from our first home down here to our second two years ago this June.

8.  Do you let your kids pick their own clothes,,or do you do it for them...?  If you dont have kids, do you take other peoples opinion on your wardrobe?  My son is five years old.  I lay out clothes for him, but if he doesn't want to wear a certain shirt with a certain pair of pants or shorts, I let him change things around.  He usually likes what I select for him.  There've been a few times when he's wanted to mix and match things that really clash.  I try to talk him out of it, but if he persists, I let him look silly.

9.  Have you ever went to a party or event, in totally inappropriat attire?  One time I went woefully underdressed to a party (nothing terrible, but I wore jeans when everyone else was wearing at least nice khakis or dress slacks and dresses) and regretted it so much that I've overdressed ever since.  My take is that it's always better to be overdressed than underdressed.
       
10.  Would you like to wear designer clothes if you could afford it, or prefer to get them off the rack, because you dont care that much for clothes...?  If I could afford it, I'd always buy the best.  Generally designer clothes are just made better and last longer.  As it is, I shop at Marshall's a lot because you can get designer label stuff that really looks sharp and lasts a long time for bargain prices.  If I had money to burn, I'd go to the best boutiques and have them pick out stuff for me - I've done that once or twice on a whim and they really do find you some quality stuff that looks great on you.  I still shop at Target for basic pieces and have a few Dry Clean Only type things from there that have lasted, but their wash-n-wear stuff shrinks or fades in record time.
