The Answers

Hello, all. 'Tis Stacey again. I practically had to bribe my husband with homemade chocolate chip cookies sans chocolate chips to get him to answer these questions. I drug him away from his hockey game and made him answer. I typed exactly what he said. So, here ya go. Bon apetite. 

What's the most important thing about being a father?
This answer requires alot more than just a sentence or two. It will require alot of thought.

If you went to Scotland would you wear a kilt in public?
As long as it was socially acceptable to do so.

If you could describe why you conceal carry in one sentence what would it be?
I'm having trouble deciding on just one sentence, so I will answer with two. 
1- To protect my family
2 - Because it's awesome

What is Gibb's Rule #9?
Always carry a knife

What is your favorite thing about Hockey?
Do you have a favorite team, or is it just Hockey in general?

I don't really know what my favorite thing about it is, but my favorite team is the Devils.

Looking at our country right now, how would you do things differently? 
Complete overhaul.

If you could travel anywhere, do anything, where would you go and what would you do?
I probably wouldn't travel. I like being at home.

Could Batman beat superman if superman didn't hold back?
In the right situation yes. If he had enough time to prepare. 

Any regrets from life or past relationships?
Not really. As much of a cop-out answer as it is, all of my decisions have led to me to the life and family that I have today.

If your wife could change one thing about you, what would that be?
She'd probably have me not talk as much.

Who is your favorite director?
Kevin Smith

What talent do you wish you had?
Any. In all seriousness, I wish I could play guitar better or draw.

Pick one superpower (flying, invisibility, mind control, etc).

If the proverbial shit hits the fan, where would be the best place on earth to ride it out?
I don't know. Not a clue. I guess some sort of government bunker or something.

 Can you shoot a bow and arrow?
Yes. I have my archery merit badge.

Favorite book, movie, and song?
Book- Anything by Salvatore
Movie - Clerks II
Song - I have no idea. I don't listen to that much music.  My favorite song to play on guitar is "The Breeze"

Live by the ocean or deep in the mountains?
Moutains. I hate the ocean. I hate sand and I don't like being hot. If it were in
Alaska, maybe. But I'd probably still prefer the mountains.

What is a [serious] mistake you've made, and learned from?
Losing my temper with a former employer.

What is the most important lesson you want your kids to learn?
To be better people than me.

How will you teach it to them?
Beats me, man. I don't have a clue.

Drawing from past friendships and relationships, what is one trait you knew you would want in the person you would marry, and one trait you knew you would not want?
I knew I wanted someone that had a sense of humor similar to mine and someone that wasn't too serious.

What's your position on women in direct combat?
If that's what they want, it's fine by me. I wouldn't stop them.

Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, or Eric Clapton? Pick one to play with.
Jimmy Page.  No one can keep up with Hendrix, and I'm not a big enough blues fan to play with Clapton. Truth be told, I probably wouldn't play guitar with Page. I'd sing, and I think his style fits with my voice.

If you could have your pick of writing jobs, what would be your ideal?
A comic book mini-series or a tv mini-series, because it has a timeline and I wouldn't have to continually be coming up with ideas to progress the story. Plus, they're more interesting than novels, I think.

This blog has been hijacked

Hello, Readers.  I'm Stacey, and I have taken it upon myself to hijack my husband's blog. I figured it was time for him to give everyone an update.
He has been struggling with a bout of writer's block for the past couple of weeks. He says he "doesn't have anything interesting to write about."  I attempted to explain that the term "interesting" was relative to everyone, but failed to do so, since he still hasn't posted anything.
In an effort to get his readership back, and get the gears in his mind turning and back on track for blogging, I am coming to his readers for help.
Back in November, I did an interview post on my blog where I asked readers to post questions and I would answer them.
I'm going to ask that you all do the same thing for Chris.  Post your questions in the comments section of this blog. Don't be afraid to ask something no matter how silly you might think it is. Ask more than one question if you want. The questions let him know his readers really are out there and are missing his posts and insights from everything on fatherhood to his new found love of hockey. 
Let's get him back to blogging again!!
