We've interviewed thestray many times since he's been printed several times on Teefury, so here's something different!
Questions and Answers from thestray's Formspring.Me. If you want to ask him a question, you can shoot him a question right now!
If you had to cook dinner for someone tonight, what would you make?
Well, it's like 12:30am right now, not in the mood to cook, so I'd make them a sandwich. PB&J or ham and cheese, their choice.
What do you think is the most attractive thing about you.
You know, I've asked every girl I've dated or fooled around with what it is they found attractive about me, and most of them said that I'm not afraid to be myself or some variation of that like "You're not fake." Which I think is a big issue for girls because a lot of dudes ARE really fake when they're approaching/courting women. A lot of people say "Be yourself." but I think a better thing to say is "Have confidence in who you are." I know I'm not super good looking or anything, but what I do have to my advantage is that I'm an interesting individual.
If you had access to a time machine, where and when would be the first place you travel to?
I'd travel back to before film was invented and show them X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Would you rather work at a large company or a small one?
The size of the company is irrelevant to me, it's the size of the paycheck that I'm worried about.
Would you rather date a lot of different people, or be in a committed relationship?
The more I think about it, for me it all boils down to just wanting to do what feels right with who it feels right with for as long as it feels right. I don't have any rules or expectations.
What was the happiest moment in your life?
I couldn't boil it down to a single moment. Many of them involve my youngest brother, whenever he's happy I'm happy. Getting into my own place was also a really good feeling, especially after all I had to go through to get here. Winning runner up in the DBH 10k was cool, I'd never really won a contest before. The Mars Volta concert was an awesome experience. Meeting Jackie Chan was mind blowing. I feel really fortunate to have too many happy moments to choose just one from.
Would you rather be rich or famous?
My landlord doesn't accept fame as a form of payment, so I'ma go with rich baby ;)
Were you a Michael Jackson fan?
"Were"? I still am. Huge fan. And not one of those fans who remembered they were a fan after he died either. My brother and I would talk about how mindblowingly amazing MJ is practically every day. The dude made a song about zombies and ghouls and it's one of the greatest songs of all time! Who else could do that?
You're always saying that you can't see yourself getting married, why not? Afraid of commitment?
First of all, I've never liked the phrase "afraid of commitment" because to me that seems to imply that one sort of lifestyle is superior and anyone who doesn't conform to it are deficient in some way.
I don't see myself getting married because of the idea of it doesn't make sense to me, it doesn't appeal to me, and even if it did it's hard to imagine there being someone who I'd want to do that with.
Of course I'm a very young man though, and who knows how I'll feel about it some day. At the moment though, I'll pass.
What's your biggest phobia?
Um, I actually kinda have mild anxiety issues, so lots of normal things are scary to me because of the simple fact that in my mind I imagine every way things can go wrong to the point that it doesn't just seem possible it seems inevitable. For this reason I've never learned how to drive, swim, or properly talk to women.
Would you rather vacation at the beach or in the mountains?
I'm actually not all that into the beach. 1) I can't swim. 2) I don't look good with my shirt off. 3) you get sand in every crevice of your body./ I'd love to go camping in the mountains though, that's my kind of shit.
What is success for you?
Success for me is being able to do a job I don't mind getting out of bed for and not having to worry if I can pay my bills.
