Answers, part 2

Only have one more to do, and I'll do that one as a seperate post, becasue It'll probably be long. (ndr: yours is the one i mean)

palegreenstar -- How do such nice people as us keep getting hurt?
Nice guys finish last. *shrug* It sucks, but I've learned to deal with it. I don't really ever expect to be happy, I just enjoy it when it comes along. Hopefully, it'll come along for the both of us soon enough.

sporkmistress -- A man walks into a bar and asks for a glass of water. The bartender pulls out a shotgun and points it at him. The man says, thank you and leaves. Why?
The dude had the hiccups. The gun scared the shit outta him, so he iddn't need the water anymore.

[[name withheld]] -- I'm inspirationless. So tell me, what do you think of me? Do people talk about me behind my back? What do they say? (question shamelessly stolen from someone anonymous)
I don't think people talk about you behind your back. At least, I've never seen it. You were mentioned in a journal once, but I think said journallist likes you at least a bit more now. I used to think you were kind of harsh... I remember a couple times in helpscreening, feeling like I got thrashed by you. Not that I really did, looking back, just felt like it. However, when you added me to your friends list, I got a very different view of you. You seem more friendly now, and I understand you better. I like you now. I enjoy your entries, and I enjoy when you're around. I'm very glad for the good thing that happened to you recently. I'm glad you're you.

fracturedfaerie -- Name the one place you want to have sex before you die
Well, first of all, I'd be happy if I had sex ANYWHERE before I die. It's not all that likely, ya know. But... In the mountains somewhere. I want to go out west to the rockies, rent a cabin for the weekend, and have sex like bunnies. :) I love looking out over mountains, and I'd love to just get away from it all for a weekend. Maybe I'll have to look up someone who lives near mountains to hook this one up with ;)

[[name withheld]] -- Okay. What's your biggest secret, the thing you've never told *anyone* (or maybe only one or two)?
There's a girl on LiveJournal that I have a really huge crush on. She lives too far away for me to do anything about it, but I still have a crush on her. And she's even, like, almost my age for once (sorry, raven). So. I think that's a secret, don't you? I could be less vague, but she probably wouldn't enjoy it ;)

[[name withheld]] -- Who's the best coder on the LJ and/or Plogs team?
This is a really hard question, mainly because I know a lot of great coders, and they're all really good at different things. timwi has impressed me a ton lately: he does a lot of patches, really quickly, and really well. Brad has stopped even looking over his stuff and just accecpting it, and with good reason: when Timwi writes a patch, he (almost always) does it right. However, his skills at working with people aren't always the greatest :) (Although they're a lot better now than they used to be). If I had to pick my FAVORITE coder? It'd be Mark. He's been really helpful to me learning Perl and mysql. He's always been nice enough to point out my mistakes gently. Karl is good for lots of random knowledge, especially regexps ;) Colin (csogilvie) is probably one of the better programmers too: The difference is, he's really quiet. he only has three posts in his journal, and he has only posted 130 comments. However, he's a really smart guy, and he does a lot of work. If it weren't for him, Plogs S2 styles would probably still say LiveJournal on them :) To actually answer your question: I don't know who the best coder is. I like Mark the best, Colin has helped me out the most, and Timwi is probably the best at fairly difficult stuff. All in my experience, of course.

chipb0i -- What is your description of a good, happy, ideal day? What are you doing on that day?
An ideal day is the one where I can do whatever I want ;)

I'd get up in the morning. The weather would be perfect out, mid-may warmish (70-75 degrees). I would go to great america: it would be a school day, so there wouldn't be anyone there. Deja vu would actually be running :) I would get there on time, ride some rides, and get a funnel cake sunday. During the day, I'd ride every ride in the park. It would be a great day: just riding rides all day.

I'm not saying that's the only great day, but that would be a great day ;)

mortaine -- What's the last book you read (completely) for fun, and what did you think of it?
Complete HitchHiker's Guide. I love that book. I've read it before, but not for several years, but there's so much of it that makes me laugh. I would fall asleep giggling to myself at night. I'm glad my roomate is deaf sometimes, and this was one of them :)

telepwen -- When will you come visit me?
When you buy me transport out there. Simple as that. I can't afford to get out there myself.

[[name withheld]] -- Do I irritate you or anyone else you know?
Nope. Not that I know of. I like talking to you. Plus, I like your screen name :)

-- If you could do anything right now what would it be?
Barring money/location? Theme park. I don't know where, but if I could get down south to where it's warm, and roller coasters were still open... I'd want to do that. I miss the summer, when I could ride coasters like.. 2 times a week. It was so fun. So. If I had money/location I wanted, I'd be riding a roller coaster right now.
