Thanks, Kattvippa! Here are the answers to your questions:

A Sunset - growing up in California and Hawaii, watching the setting sun on the ocean is amazing
B Ocean for sure - lakes creep me out, though I have a better appreciation for the Great Lakes now that I have visited them before. So I think my lake phobia might only be fresh water.
C That would be England. I flew their last year for work, and at around 4000 miles, I think it is the farthest trip I have taken.
D Good question. I would like to go visit most of my old stomping grounds (dad was military, so we moved around a bit). On the more exciting side, probably Alaska, UK again, and somewhere warm with a beach, probably in the Caribbean (that last one is really for my wife).
E Genghis Khan - the man conquered the vast majority of the Asian Continent, and was no slouch when it came to military tactics. I think it would be very interesting to know the hows and whys of his need to build such a large empire.
F I don't really have a favorite - I like pizza in almost all its forms, except mushrooms and anchovies, those are both right out.
G I have one Dog named Indy - he is a Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix. My wife has a leopard gecko, named Penny who she has had before we were married (think she is 14 years old now?).
H Hmm not sure what one would consider weird food... I guess a weird one might be Peanut Butter and Syrup, a 'dessert' I had growing up. Mix PB and maple syrup in a bowl, eat with flour tortillas. Traditionally Sugarcane molasses was used, but maple syrup is/was more readily available.
I Last book I read was Elves of the Cintra, by Terry Brooks, and it was pretty good. I have read the original Trilogy, and Scion series after that, so I figured I ought to go back and read the 'prequels'. The Books I read before this was the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson, and I enjoyed those.
J I don't get out to watch films all that much, finding sitters for the kids and free time in which to go out is difficult. The last movie I watch in Theaters might actually have been Rogue One, and I highly recommend that one. I watch Dr. Strange at home recently (I know, I am woefully behind...) and I thought that was quite enjoyable, and would recommend to anyone who has like the previous Marvel movies.
K That is good question. If it is a brand new RPG, I prefer a hard copy so I can more easily read the book at my leasure. If it is a system I know fairly well already, I prefer PDF, so I can more easily search for specifics. For example, I don't own any hard copies of Pathfinder books, since I have been playing 3.x style RPGs since they came out, so I know the rules pretty well, and buy PDFs because they are a bit easier to carry around (phone, tablet, laptop, etc.).

d10-1 I am red/green color deficient ('blind'), so I always choose Black if it is an option
d10-2 Autumn - I like leaves changing colors and hoodie weather
d10-3 I do not play an instrument - by brother got all of the musical talent. I just play the radio 8-P
d10-4 I attempt to have fun whenever possible!
d10-5 My mother really had her heart set on naming me Adam after some TV show character in the '70s, my father said 'no'
d10-6 I actually don't snack much. If I do, it is usually sometime of trail mix, and usually while I am out camping.
d10-7 Tends to be Saturdays - no work, get to spend time with the family or Boy Scouts.
d10-8 Partially dependant on what day it is and what I am doing. If I am camping, I really like early morning sunrises with coffee or at nigth with campfires. During an average work week? around 8am, means I have usually had my first cup of coffee and I am ready to see people.
d10-9 Hmm that is a tough choice. I would have to say Commander William T. Riker. I have always like his cockiness and attitude. But it would have to be bearded Riker.
d10-1d10-0 Family and Friends.
d10-1d10-1 Not sure I really have a life long dream. I guess the closest thing would be to have enough money so I could take endless amount of classes. I love learning, and took a lot of 'unneeded' classes in college just because I wanted to learn and know more
d10-1d10-2 I have always been partial to elves and fighter/mage type classes. I still remember play D&D when all elves were fighter-mages.
d10-1d10-3 Probably Spain during the 1600's so I could learn La Verdadera Destreza (Spanish style fencing) from some of the great sword masters of the time.
d10-1d10-4 That was the avatar I used for my first PFS BGG avatar. I needed a token to represent my Tiefling Magus, so my wife found art of Illidan Stormrage from World of Warcraft and used her mad MS Paint skills to remove the horns, and thus Ta'lon Bludhaven's character pic was born.
d10-1d10-5 My username is my nickname from college. My last name is Spanish, so when pronounce it is sounds like 'Ha-da-mee-yo' so my friends would just call me the first part 'Ha-da'

Poll: 2 Truths & A Lie
One of the below statements is false, good luck and let the game begin!

Poll created by Woodenman


So, now the answer to the poll.

I did qualify for and compete in a national fencing tournament in the USA.

I have been drinking coffee since I was 3 years old - my maternal grandfather use to come home from work and take what was left of his coffee and added it to my cup/bottle of milk. I loved the taste of coffee, so he always made sure to save some for me. Now I drink coffee religiously.

The LIE, as some of you guessed, was an Alpha Tester for WoW. I was actually only a Beta tester in the final round of closed Betas.

Thank you for having me, and sorry I dropped the ball thus far. Lost internet at my house this week, so I am waaay behind on everything 8-P

A mighty Congrats!

1) If you play PbF games, what PbF game never fails to make you smile when you play it? If not, what RPG never fails to make you smile when you play it?

2) What would you rather have: someone who shows up on time to your RPG and brings food they do not share, or someone who shows up two hours late with a feast for everyone?

3) Oh no! A dreaded rules argument has broken out! What do you do?

4) A horde of shambling undead are about to attack your character! What do you do?

While I am not technically GotW anymore (still playing catch up from the week of hell last week and have not found a new victim honoree yet, but I'll still answer the questions 8-) )

1) The only PbF games I play are PFS ones. I have tried to play other RPGs, but they never seem to last more than a month or two before players/GMs quit. I do like PFS and it is definitely a high point in my day when I can post!

2) I would rather someone show up on time and not share food. Face-to-face gaming is hard enough to set up (for me anyways) that I want to sit down and get to it. I usually bring an abundance of food and drinks anyways, so I never have to worry about it.

3) Well, for most of my Face-to-face games, I am the de facto rules lawyer, since I tend to memorize rules fairly well, and I often read rule books for fun - so I usually rule on them. However, most arguments (if not settled by GM or a quick look through the book) by what would be more epic, story-wise.

4) Completely depends on the character. But a good chunk of them would just wade in and start slicing/smashing/shooting.
