    Yes, but it was so long ago I don't remember it.

    Have you seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and if so, in what circumstances (e.g. at home or in a theatre, virgin or participant, etc.)?

    Yes, I saw it specifically to honour my then best school mate. It was his fave film. I saw it at home.

    What nature show do you like best and why? (animal-based)

    I watched so many nature shows that I forget what half of them were. Wild America was my favorite when I was a kid. I also watched Kratt's Kreatures because poor literacy is kewl, I like watching The Most EXTREME and whatever else tends to be on Animal Planet. Nowadays, though, I'll watch random documentaries on YouTube.

    Same.

    Wild America was likewise my fave growing up. Now, I rather do like Nature.

    Fave insect?

    Fireflies on summer nights, and also crickets for their songs. Though praying mantises are extremely fascinating too.

    Same question.

    Ladybugs and bumblebees

    What do you usually eat for breakfast?

    Usually just a simple bowl of cereal, a little orange juice, and some milk or chocolate milk. Breakfast is usually my smallest meal of the day. My ideal breakfast is pretty much just a variation on the above: oatmeal, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and homemade chocolate milk, usually made from Mexican chocolate.

    Same question (sorry I'm not feeling very original right now!).

    I know that feeling :p

    For me, it's usually yoghurt or milk with cereals or toast/dark bread with butter and ham/cheese/both and some vegetables. For drink it's a cup of tea or orange juice or just plain mineral water.

    What is the best joke ever in your opinion?

    I do like PC, but Mac is Mac :p Though I don't have one :) (my parents do).

    Are dragons for you princess-eating greedy evil monsters (like Smaug) or good wise creatures (like Saphira)?

    Probably a bit of both. Though, I haven't really thought about it much before. :p

    What is your favorite pen color? Ink- wise, I mean. :p

    Black, felt-tip, utlrafine point. Basically, Pigma Micron in 01 and 005 sizes for drawing. For writing, however, black fine point roller ball. I like the Pilot ultrafine point pens.

    Preferred pen size?

    I guess 0.7.

    Do you write in a notebooks first, or do you write directly to the computer?

    In a notebook. I have a feeling that my fantasy works better when I write on a paper. Paper rules :p

    It's 2002. You can go to one movie premiere. Lord of the Rings: Two Towers or Star Wars Episode II? (It'd be LOTR for me :p)

    Creek for sure, because we don't have sea in the Czech republic, soo it's kinda special for me :) And if you meant creek like 'small river', I'd go with a pool :).

    Are watermelons fruit or vegetables?

    Seeing as how they're fruiting bodies of a vine, much like squash, and their flesh contains seeds like other fruiting bodies, then they are fruits.

    What do you like to read?

    Books :p

    Hmm... That means that tomatoes are fruit too, right?

    Yes. Tomatoes are fruiting bodies, as are squash, cucumbers, and peppers. We classify many actual fruits as vegetables as they are not sweet-tasting.

    What genres do you like to read?

    I take it you mean for pleasure reading, which is unfortunately something I've had precious little time for of late. :( It's hard for me to pin it down by genre because I enjoy all sorts of things, from poetry to classic fiction to sci-fi. I'm very fond of classic mysteries, particularly the Sherlock Holmes stories and various novels and stories by Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, and G. K. Chesterton. I have also always loved Greek mythology and various other mythological stories as well (books of Russian and Jewish fairy tales counted among my favorite childhood reads, and I'm revisiting some Arthurian legends now). But I also find it easy to get lost in a well-written cookbook.

    Closely related question: what are your favorite kind of nonfiction books?
