Seven Deadly Sins survey

This did turn out to be for American schoolkids going by one very coy question, but the rest was fairly entertaining.


1. With whom did you last get angry?
Servalan. She just never gives a harmless bloke a chance.

2. What is your weapon of choice?
Wit. Or neutron blasters if that doesn't work.

3. Would you hit a member of the opposite sex?
Of course not! They'd hit me back.

4. How about of the same sex?
See previous question.

5. Who was the last person who got really angry at you?
The crew on that last ship I got with the neutron blasters.

6. What is your pet peeve?
People wanting me to do dangerous things.

7. Do you keep grudges, or can you let them go easily?
I don't see the point in revenge, it just escalates. There are some things I'll never be able to forget though, like Tarrant telling me I was a spare part and everyone wanted to throw me off the ship, and Avon actually trying to do it. :-(


1. What is one thing you're supposed to do daily that you haven't done in a long time?
Exercise? Frankly I find the amount of sprinting I have to do on missions more than makes up for it.

2. What is the latest you've ever woken up?
After my flight-deck shift was over. [looks shifty]

3. Name a person you've been meaning to contact, but haven't?
The Londondome library, Neasden branch, about those books I never returned before I was sent to Cygnus Alpha.

4. What is the last lame excuse you made?
I've got a bone in my leg.

5. Have you ever watched an infomercial all the way through (one of the long ones)?
Of course not. I do have some taste, you know.

6. When was the last time you got a good workout in?
The last time troopers shot at me. I've considered becoming an Olympic sprinter, you know, but I couldn't be bothered with all the training.

7. How many times did you hit the snooze button on your alarm clock today?
I don't have an alarm clock. There is a ahip alarm though, but it for scarier things than being asleep (well, nightmares aside).


1. What is your overpriced yuppie beverage of choice?
Tall latte in a glass with vanilla and a marshmallow.

2. Meat eaters: white meat or dark meat?
I don't eat anything I could be friends with, so white for fish. Leave me a bit cold, fish.

3. What is the greatest amount of alcohol you've had in one sitting/outing/event?
I don't remember. Enough to make me forgot my name.

4. Have you ever used a professional diet company?
Nope. I like to keep myself trim and escape-ready.

5. Do you have an issue with your weight?
Only on shuttles with Avon.

6. Do you prefer sweets, salty foods, or spicy foods?
Spicy followed by sweet. I like a good curry with a nice dessert.

7. Have you ever looked at a small housepet or child and thought, LUNCH?
What? NO! What sort of question is that? That's disgusting.


1. How many people have you seen naked (not counting movies/family)?
Lots. Some prisons and holding areas have those communal showers. There was Blake as well when we got attacked while he was in the shower and it's a sight I wish I could forget.

2. How many people have seen YOU naked (not counting physicians/family)?
Lots. See above, with the exception of Blake (as far as I know).

3. What is your favourite body part on a person of your gender of choice?

4. Have you ever caught yourself staring at the chest/crotch of a member of your gender of choice during a normal conversation?
Yes. And my head hurt for ages after Dayna whacked me upside it.

5. Have you done it?
Done what? Oh, I suppose this is for American schoolkids after all. [rolls eyes] Yes.

6. Have you ever been propositioned by a prostitute?
I suspect so. At least I think that's what that couple that came up to me in the street in Romedome (I was there to nick some old painting) meant. I was too stunned to even answer. Look, I was an innocent young lad.

7. Have you ever had to get tested for an STD or pregnancy?


1. How many credit cards do you own?
Several in various names.

2. What's your guilty pleasure store? It's amazing what pirates offer for sale. Grandmothers on occasion.

3. If you had $1 million, what would you do with it?
Bank it with the millions I already have. One day I might even get to spend them.

4. Would you rather be rich, or famous?
I'm already both. I'd like to be a lot less famous, actually.

5. Would you accept a boring job if it meant you would make megabucks?
I think I already did.

6. Have you ever stolen anything?
[laughs so hard he almost chokes]

7. How many MP3s are on your hard drive?
Dunno. About 3000.


1. What one thing have you done that you're most proud of?
Found a new planet for those strange Keezarn people.

2. What one thing have you done that your parents are most proud of?
I don't think my father knows who I am. I certainly don't know who he is, so that seems reasonable. As for my mum, it was getting regraded as Beta when I was 11, then turning it down to stay with her.

3. What thing would you like to accomplish in your life?
I'd like to be safe, rich, loved, and happy. Not necessarily in that order.

4. Do you get annoyed by coming in second place?
Only if there were two in the competition.

5. Have you ever entered a contest of skill, knowing you were of much higher skill than all the other competitors?
Yeah, darts down the pub back home. It turned out to be good practice for the neutron blasters.

6. Have you ever cheated on something to get a higher score?
Only to annoy people like Tarrant and Dayna and Avon.

7. What did you do today that you're proud of?
Um. Pass.


1. What item (or person) of your friends would you most want to have for your own?
The Liberator. It's fast, comfy, well armed, and I could stay well away from the Federation.

2. Who would you want to trade places with?
No one. It's not that I'm so happy with being me, more scared about how much worse in all sorts of unexpected ways it would be to be someone else. Nesides, I'm used to me.

3. If you could be anyone else in the world, who would you be?
See previous question.

4. Have you ever been cheated on?

5. Have you ever wished you had a physical feature different from your own?
More hair.

6. What inborn trait do you see in others that you wish you had for yourself?
I'd say bravery, but I sometimes just think it's lack of imagination, and I'd quite like to keep mine.

7. Finally, what is your favourite deadly sin?
Gluttony. Look, it's easy enough to make some toasty cheese followed by a nice cup of tea, and really, it's the only one of 'em that's fun. Sloth comes second, because it's nice too, but you get yelled at a lot more.

*makes you cheesy toast*

Srsly, I have more bread and cheese I can eat in my fridge because I thought I'd make sandwiches to take to uni but ended up staying at home and drinking soup. So help yourself :-)

On library books, or books in general, what kind of stuff do you like reading? Is it true Tarrant has a fondness for tunic rippers? teehee. Why does that not surprise me? :P

[identity profile] 2009-10-18 09:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh, excellent! I had cheesy toast for breakfast, actually. It's about time for that second cuppa and a mid-morning snack. :-)

Which uni are you at? Not Belhangria, I hope. Can't think of that place without getting the creeps thinking of Egrorian folndling my knee.

Yep, Tarrant does love those things. He's a romantic (and an idiot) at heart. Me, I like a nice bit of entertaining escapism, like science fiction or fantasy or a good crime novel.

[identity profile] 2009-10-19 08:01 am (UTC)(link)
ahaha, you could have second breakfast likes a hobbit :-) oooh, you like the same kind of books as I do. Shiny!

I'm not at Belhangria. He WAS super creepy.

If Tarrant wasn't such an idiot I'd think him rather cute. The number of times he does stuff without thinking makes me think he was very, very lucky to survive. What does he do these days? Is he still alive? What happened to the others?

[identity profile] 2009-10-19 09:49 am (UTC)(link)
Tarrant got a job as test pilot for experimental spaceships. He said he had the right stuff, whatever that is. Dayna's set up a weapons company (I suggested Tarrant should test those) and Soolin's working as a body guard. For my body. :-) Avon's still around. He's useful for inventing the occasional gadget.

[identity profile] 2009-10-19 09:59 am (UTC)(link)
Oh yay! You'll be pretty safe with Soolin there. I'm glad.

BTW I think hobbits got that expression from the Germans. They call morning tea "second breakfast" and a very good idea it is too.

2. What is the latest you've ever woken up?
After my flight-deck shift was over. [looks shifty]

Oh I wish I could do that ;0)

[identity profile] 2009-10-18 09:08 pm (UTC)(link)
I tell you, it's not worth it if they catch you (the times I never made it all the way through).

[identity profile] 2009-10-24 10:26 am (UTC)(link)
Out of curiosity, how many times have you been caught?

[identity profile] 2009-10-29 01:01 am (UTC)(link)
Three: the first time when I was about 11 and they sent me to the JD wards and tried to adjust me, the second time when I was 14 and they failed again to reprogram me and sent me off to the CF1 penal colony, and the third one, it was Cygnus Alpha. Luckily only very briefly. :-)
