Very few photos of me are anywhere online. Hmm. I don't even have a Flickr account.

I can point you at http://www.okcupid.com/profile?u=Australian_Joe which has a few. I'll poll my partners and see about getting some other ones up.

I know I'm in one of wispfox's LJ icons... 8-)

1. Your Middle Name: Shannon
2. Age: 34
3. Single or Taken: Taken and available
4. Favorite Movie: Changes reguarly, but right now it's "Happiness"
5. Favorite Song or Album: Changes regularly, but now it's an old remix of Funker Vogt's Under Deck or The Triplets of Belleville soundtrack.
6. Favorite Band/Artist: Changes regularly, but now it's either Combichrist or Peaches.
7. Dirty or Clean: Clean but occasionally disorganized.
8. Tattoos and/or Piercings: Both. My formerly stretched out ear lobes have returned to normal human size over the years, and I have some fractal artwork on my arm.
9. Do we know each other outside of LJ? I'm not sure how you ended up on my flist. It's been a while. Neither of us seems to post much, so it's just as well. ;)
10. What's your philosophy on life? Be Useful. Regardless of how smart or talented you are, make sure that you're capable of actually doing stuff, not just talking about it. Oh, and be nice, save the animals/children, etc, etc...
11. Is the bottle half-full or half-empty? I temper knee-jerk pessimism with a generally positive attitude. I've gotten much better with it over the years.
12. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest? It totally depends on the secret and the impacts of telling/not telling you.
13. What is your favorite memory of us? I don't really know you very well, so I think I'm having that favorite memory now. :P
14. What is your favorite guilty pleasure? As a vegan type I diabetic, it is chocolate soy ice cream on a hot vegan brownie. I'm sure it will kill me some day. Alternatively, I just watched 100 episodes of Bleach (anime series) over the past few months.
15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: Odd, interesting? Though I'm a sexually liberated left wing hippie vegan, some of my best friends are annoyingly conservative. Even so, I still love them.
16. You can have three wishes (for yourself, so forget all the 'world peace etc' malarkey) - what are they : I don't typically play this game. Here's a try: 1) finally move out of Texas to someplace better, 2) to have a hybrid-electric car that hauls ass, is affordable, handles well AND requires minimal fuel, 3) .
17. Can we get together and make a cake? If it can be vegan and you like to travel.
18. Which country is your spiritual home? I'm spiritually homeless. Still country shopping. For now, I'd say Jamaica, but I know that's not right, either.
19. What is your big weakness? Organization skills.
20. Do you think I'm a good person? Yes, from what I can tell.
21. What was your best/favorite subject at school: Science. Specifically, I liked the "blowing stuff up" classes.
22. Describe your accent: Generica. I can turn on the Texan or play you out wit ebonics. I'm more likely to sound like a pompous intellectual, whatever accent that is.
23. If you could change anything about me, would you? I don't know, but I doubt it.
24. What do you wear to sleep? Sheets and (if needed) blankets.
25. Trousers or skirts? I prefer trousers, but occasionally wear a skirt.
26. Cigarettes or alcohol? Neither lately. I'm getting too old for all that. If I did go for alcohol, it would be Captain Morgan all the way down.
27. If I only had one day to live, what would we do together? Depends on your health/abilities/desires.
28. Will you repost this so I can fill it out for you? Maybe. I don't normally post this sort of stuff.
