Bio 21 Questions Blog Promotion
  1. Who is your favorite literary character?

    Max from "Where the Wild Things Are". It was my favorite book as a child, and I have not read much fiction since then. Close second: The Hardy Boys' stout friend Chet, who regularly falls into holes and gets tied up by bad guys.

  4. One thing you could eat for the rest of your life?


  5. Favorite movie? Worst movie?

    Favorite: My two favorite movies are probably "It's A Wonderful Life" and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", so I would say a combination of the two would be the ultimate. Least favorite: any Quentin Tarantino.

    The Mesozoic. I'd quickly be eaten, but it would be worth it to see dinosaurs.
