Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies

I finally jumped in on the "ask me 5 questions" thing doing the rounds. These are from Awesome Matt..

1) LOng Island vs. Canada: WHich do you like better and why?
Both for very different reasons. A bit of a cop out answer, but true none the less. I love Canada because it's where I was born, where I grew up, where I fell in love, and where all my family lives. I love LI because I have a great job here, a decent place, awesome friends, and access to anything I want at any time. I hate the medical system here with such a passion it's not funny. If I'd grown up here, I'd have had to have declared bankruptcy at 21 years old due to medical bills. As was, all I had to do was get myself to hospital and back. I am desperate to be able to take part in the political system here. But it'll be another 8 years before I can vote. And then only if USCIS finally gets it's head out of the sand and improves their record. And given the 8.5 years it took to get our Greencards in the first place, I'm not overly hopeful. But if I had to choose between them, I guess I already did. I didn't take the job I was offered in Canada two years ago.

2) Working in the pharma industry must be fun sometimes. What's the weirdest thing you've ever handled?
Sadly I don't get weird stuff to handle. Most fun was watching my colleague (of dubious character) as I had to destroy 300 grams of pure oxycodone. (That's enough to make about 300,000 tablets...)

3) Ears or must be sensitive. Which one!
Both! I am such a ticklish person it's not funny. Well, actually it is, but you get my drift! :P

4) In the immortal words of the Reverend Horton Heat, Liquor, Beer, or Wine?
Ummm, none? I can drink or take my arthritis meds. I like to walk...

5) Favorite RPG?
I'm sad, lame and boring. I haven't actually played many systems. Living Greyhawk because of all the friends I've made through it. I'm not touching 4th ed with a ten foot pole though...

If you want in, leave me a comment (on either blog) and I'll respond with questions for you!
