1. Name: Brad
2. Nicknames: Bradio, B-Rad, Bradfordley, Kaos
3. Birthday: April 28th
4. Place of Birth: Southern California, USA
5. Zodiac Sign: Taurus
6. Male or Female: Male
7. Occupation: Insurance
8. Residence: Southern California, USA

__Your Appearance___

9. Hair Color: Blond/Dirty Blond
10. Hair Length: Currently very short (like a long buzz)
11. Eye Color: Blue! (my eyes are my best feature =3)
12. Height: 6'0"
13. Glasses: Eyeglasses =[ I hate them. They hide my eyes and don't look good on me. But I can't wear contacts.
14. Piercings: Nadda
15. ?
16. Tattoos: Nope
17. Righty or Lefty: Righty

___ Favorites___
18. Movie: Any action or comedy. Stuff that messes with your head too, such as Inside Man.

19. TV Show: Comedy. Whether that be Action/Comedy, Drama/Comedy, or just straight Comedy, if it doesn't make me laugh, I won't watch
it...unless it's Pokemon. My one guilty pleasure. What? It was my favorite show as a kid. >_>

20. Color: BLUE!

21. Food: Korean BBQ!!!

22. Dessert: Ice Cream!

23. Type of Music: I like stuff from every single genre. I guess most of my stuff has an element of Rock in it, so I guess that's my absolute favorite, but I like all kinds of stuff.

24. Song Right Now: Can't really decide, but the Duke Nukem Forever theme is stuck in my head.

25. Place: Once again, varied. I love nature, I love cities, I love being inside, I love being outside...just depends on my mood I suppose. I could probably stand to watch some waves right about now though.

26. School Subject: Ugh. None of them. Even when the topic is interesting, the classroom environment tends to ruin it for me. I liked all the times I was in the sound booth though. So I guess Audio Engineering, but even that was stifled by the classroom environment.

27. Animal: Dogs! I have two Beagles. One Tricolor and one Lemon. I want a Siberian Husky eventually. The classic grey with blue eyes, not the brown or black or anything. Currently watching a Black Lab, some sort of Mix (looks kind of like a super furry version of the lab...almost like a black wolf), and a black Chihuahua. Not my dogs though, I'm just house sitting/dog sitting for a couple of weeks.

28. Book: Reading has become frustrating for me because my reading speed has dropped so much. I don't remember the last time I actually FINISHED a book, but what I've read of Ghosts of Onyx and World War Z has been great.

29. Video Game: Oh dear. I don't even know where to begin. So many amazing franchises. I'm gonna have to say my all time favorite single player game is Fallout 3. Multiplayer is either Halo 3 or Halo Reach. We'll all be here for days if I list all my favorites though.

__Random__

30. Greatest Wish: I wish I could have my best friend back.

31. Future Goals: As detailed in Shigi's other thread, I'm not entirely sure. But one of them is to find a significant other and another is to continue losing weight.

32. Things you look for in a significant other: Emotionally, she has to be sweet and compassionate. I get VERY passionate about the things and people that I love, and it's great when she does as well. I'm also a lot more emotional than most guys and like to maintain regular contact with each other. I like the sappy stuff that a lot of guys don't. Mostly, she needs to be someone I can talk to and rely on. Physically, the eyes. Some girls could seriously get me to do anything just with their eyes. As a side note, I'm a big cuddler :P

33. Pet Peeves: When there's a line of cars and some idiot speeds around to the front of the line and then cuts into it. WAIT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, YOU'RE NOT SPECIAL!!!

34. Place you'd like to visit someday: Japan, Seattle, Portland, and Austin (been there, but I want to go again now that I know about Rooster Teeth)

1. Name: Alice (my parents supposedly named me after the Disney movie)
2. Nicknames: small, Tei (In FF9 you're about to rename the princess to "Dagger", and I was like "What kind of a name is THAT?? I'm going to name you hmmm...'Tei'." I thought of the name in 5 seconds.)
3. Birthday: November 9
4. Place of Birth: California
5. Zodiac Sign: Scorpio
6. Male or Female: F
7. Occupation: "Jill-of-all-trades". Mainly software developer. But 1.5 years ago my mom got Guillain-Barre Syndrome (long story short, nerves were damaged so brain signals couldn't reach destination. She was fully paralyzed, it affected her breathing, heartrate...things that the brain controls that the person doesn't think about). Now I am part-nurse, caretaker, physical and occupational therapist, which is a totally different field! During my rare free time, writing music and developing for a game on Android and playing games, because it's research and stress relief! I am extremely forgetful these days, and I've been under stress for a long while.
8. Residence: California

__Your Appearance___

10. Hair Length: long
11. Eye Color: dark brown
12. Height: 5'2"
13. Glasses: yes constantly (my eyes are so tiny contacts are a pain)
14. Piercings: no but I sometimes daydream about getting one on my lower lip
16. Tattoos: 2 (I tend to get tattoos when lonely and depressed, so fortunately it's not often!)
17. Righty or Lefty: Right

___ Favorites___

18. Movie: Gran Turino, Serenity, LOTR, Ikiru, Watchmen, uh...too many to name!

20. Color: royal blue
21. Food: mostly Asian (Japanese, Chinese, Thai, etc.) I like anything but I don't ever crave Mexican for some reason
22. Dessert: Tiramisu! But I'm not picky!
23. Type of Music: alternative, punk rock, heavy metal. Muse, Avenged Sevenfold, some Slipknot, Jason Mraz, and Florence and the Machine.

25. Place: my boyfriend's place, my bed, in front of my laptop
26. School Subject: I don't think I ever excelled in one. Maybe high school general art.
27. Animal: Can't decide. I'm a dog person because I'm allergic to cats. I love to observe parakeets playing in the pet store.
28. Book: I have not read a book in a long time. I prefer to read articles online. Lost Odyssey has lots of mini-stories that caused me to cry.
29. Video Game: Odin Sphere, Portal, Silent Hill, Frequency, Shadow of Colossus, Resident Evil, Gears of War, Left 4 Dead, Plants vs Zombies, too many to name!

30. Greatest Wish: Right now, I just want my mom to reach a semi-independent state (be able to walk a few feet with a cane) hopefully before the end of the year, so I can move on with my life, PLEASE! Also, a 3-hour body massage would be nice.
31. Future Goals: long-term, finish the Android Pet game, maybe create an app for the medical field
32. Things you look for in a significant other: Attractiveness - this is part physical and part personality/attitude. Patience, understanding, humor, and loyalty because I'm fiercely possessive!
33. Pet Peeves: People who keep acting like they're victims, and everyone/everything in the world is against them. Negative people! I'm with TRUEfoe on this. They constantly complain about either little tiny things or the same thing over and over again without coming to terms with the issue or improving the situation. They prefer to complain...argh!!

True story: I had a friend (I was her bridesmaid) who constantly complains on Twitter each day. Given what I have to go through because of my mom's illness, I have no sympathy and no capacity to handle these frivolous complaints about things that, quite honestly, are not issues (traffic, which is normal in SoCal, hair issues, shoe issues, exaggerated and dramatic work issues, etc etc). With Twitter it's one-way complaining which made it worse because I didn't have the time/energy to complain my situation. I deleted her from Twitter, and months later she sent me a message pointing out I deleted her, and then she deleted me from Facebook. Doh!

34. Place you'd like to visit someday: Europe, Taiwan and Japan again with boyfriend
Developer and composer for A Quiver of Crows.
