Because James and Katie told me to.

1. selfie


2. what would you name your future kids?

MIssy and I have already picked out the names for our first 4 kids (assuming 2/2) I don’t want to jinx any.  But being the Geoffrey Wood Patterson II, you can probably guess one of them.  I really want Emmet and Benjamin if we end up with 4 boys.

3. do you miss anyone?

I miss my Patterson grandparents.  Grandma Betty because I would have loved for her to meet Missy.  And Grandpa Pat because I would love to have known him as an adult.  He was so incredibly smart, and I know he was better at relating to adults.  Even though he was super funny and great with kids too.

4. what are you looking forward to?

Having kids (eventually).

5. is there anyone who can always make you smile?

My wife. All of my groomsmen (Brian, James, Marc, Moris, Jarrod, and Ozzie)  Brian’s son, William.

6. is it hard for you to get over someone?

You better believe it.

7. what was your life like last year?

I got married.  My wife and I got our first apartment.  Living with someone with drastically different tastes is a fun adventure.  Compromise feels so much better with someone where it actually involves rectifying opposing viewpoints.  I always prefer the collaborative arts (comics, tv, movies) because I feel that you get something better than the sum of it’s parts - and life is no different.

8. have you ever cried because you were so annoyed?

Is this a thing? I get angry. I kinda thought that either getting over it or getting angry were your two options.

9. who did you last see in person?

My wife, as she was driving off to work.

10. are you good at hiding your feelings?

I don’t think anyone who has been in a room with me for more than 5 minutes would think I hide any of my feelings.  I might be a little better at hiding heartbreak - but it’s been quite a while since I had to.

11. are you listening to music right now?

Nope.

12. what is something you want right now?

To not have to go to the gym today.

13. how do you feel right now?

Tired and sore from the gym yesterday.

14. when was the last time someone of the opposite sex hugged you?

This morning, before my wife left for work.

15. personality description

Benny from The Lego Movie.

16. have you ever wanted to tell someone something but you didn’t?

I was a fat teenage boy - so yes.

17. opinion on insecurities.

Like my insecurities? (weight, hairline, style sense, work ethic) or the concept of insecurities as a whole? (they have a kernel of truth - and that’s why its so hard to get rid of them.)

18. do you miss how thing were a year ago?

Planning a wedding? Not really.  My life is better both professionally and personally than last year (not that they were bad last year)

19. have you ever been to New York?

Yep.  One of my favorite places to visit.  Going this year with Missy and I’m super pumped.

20. what is your favourite song at the moment?

Everything is Awesome - Lego Movie

21. age and birthday?

31 -  December 19th

22. description of crush

A delicious orange soda from my childhood!

Like - my current crush? My wife.  All of these questions are so obviously written by a single person.  It makes me feel weird because I think I’m just being one of those people that talks to much about their spouse/kids.

23. fear(s)

Death in general.  Of both myself and my loved ones.

24. height

Six foot One inch

25. role model

My dad - because you have never met a man with fewer insecurities and fewer fucks to give what other people think (much to both his detriment and success), Grandma Betty because a kinder, more loving individual has never graced the planet Earth.

26. idol(s)

Teddy Roosevelt, The Thing

27. things i hate

Ignorance.  Willful ignorance. Intransigence. People that love thinking they are an expert, even when talking to an actual expert.

28. i’ll love you if…

You love me back. 

I’ve found that I wasted a lot of time looking for a woman that had similar interests (read comics, watch movies, etc.) and I found a lot more success in life when I realized that having a similar personality is much better.  People who are happy, and able to enjoy things.  Pretty much people lacking in cynicism.

29. favourite film(s)

Back to the Future 1,2,3

Indiana Jones 1,3

The Usual Suspects

The Magnificent Seven

30. favourite tv show(s)

The Simpsons, The Wire, The Shield, Alias,

31. 3 random facts

My great great grandpa threw himself in front of a shot gun to save Grandma Betty. He survived, bu lost an arm. But for some reason - no one in the family liked him.  My dad and I don’t know why.

The most religious experience I’ve ever had was at a baseball game.

I’m too busy to think of a third thing.

32. are your friends mainly girls or guys?

Dudes.  I have a few girls that I now consider my good friends - but I met them through my dude friends.

33. something you want to learn

Piano, drums.

34. most embarrassing moment

My life is a parade of clumsy bullcrap.

35. favourite subject

Comics, Political Science, Statistics

36. 3 dreams you want to fulfill?

Open up a chain of successful comic store. Own a house in Los Angeles. Have a Mormon-level amount of kids.

37. favourite actor/actress

Christopher Lloyd.  I find myself more interested in directors.  There are pretty much no actors who’s movies I would see without question. Whereas there are many directors.

38. favourite comedian(s)

Louis CK, George Carlin, Dave Chappell

39. favourite sport(s)

1. Basketball. 2. Football, 3. Baseball

40. favourite memory

When I was in the second grade, I figured out that logistically, Santa just could not be real.  My grandma Betty sat me down and told me that she knew Santa personally.  And my interior monologue was “Well, Dad and Mom would lie to me.  But there is no way Grandma Betty would” And I proceeded to tell everyone and school that my granma knew Santa.

41. relationship status

Married

42. favourite book(s)

American Tabloid by James Ellroy; 1,001 Arabian Nights; The Time Machine by HG Wells

43. favourite song ever

Under Pressure by Queen

44. age you get mistaken for

45-55. Black people think I’m really old.  I’ve never had my age mistaken except by black people.

45. how you found out about your idol

I honestly don’t remember how I discovered Teddy Roosevelt.  One of the crazy stories about him, probably.  Like that he challenged the heavyweight champion of the world to a boxing match while he was still president.  Then went through with it, and was punched so hard he went blind in one eye and never told anyone.

46. what my last text message says

Received: Where’s my baby? Sent:You didn’t take your smoothie!

47. turn ons

Happiness. Excitement.

Cynicism.

59. why i joined tumblr

work

60. ask me anything you want

Why was this survey so damn long?

So, I was showing my friend some of my Thing art and he said “The Thing looks like Peter Dinklage”
Damn if I wouldn’t see the crap out of that movie.  Tyrion’s struggle with being physically different would really prepare Dinklage for playing Ben Grimm.  Little person Ben Grimm spends his whole life wishing he was taller.  Despite his physical limitations - he gets to pilot an experimental spaceship for his best friend, Reed Richards.
