2. Do you smoke?
Sissi: Mostly no

3. When was the last time you got angry?
Dave: Every time I drive, hear Lou Dobbs talk, see people drop trash on the street, think about religion, run out of coffee. I guess I'm angry a lot.
Sissi: When I flip the channels and come across Bill O'Reilly.
Tom: I never get angry. I keep it all bottled up deep inside until it erupts as back acne or carbunkles on my feets. Sometimes butterflies hover around me.
Michael: Shit. I have two boys, three years old and a four years old. When was the last time I wasn't angry. Hm. I guess that actually predates my progeny.
Stephen: Dick Chaney
4. When was the last time you laughed until you cried?
Tom: When I was reading the Bible written by God and the Moabites were all like talking shit and acting tough and then God smote their sorry asses with pestilence and frogs and shit. I was like, oh snap, no you didn't, but he did.
Michael: Local menu misspelling: Spaghetti Bologrease.
Stephen: It was from an email Tom sent us [speaking] with a British accent.
5. Was there a movie where you could not bear to see the end?

Couldn’t make it to the end.

Stephen: Dr. Strangelove

Michael: Pop a Tent
Stephen: None of the above
8. Who do you currently have a crush on?
Dave: Um, my wife. And Ségolène Royal.
Sissi: Tom & Waits
Tom: Do you mean me and Tom Waits or just Tom Waits and you threw the "&" in there to confuse me? I like Barbie in Frutopia.
Michael: Definitely Tom Waits
9. What's the best moment of your day?
Dave: First coffee in the morning.
Sissi: When our son comes for a cuddle in the mornings.
Tom: When the butterflies come and hover. Sometimes they sing 'Last Ticket to Paradise' by Eddie Money in sweet tiny voices.
Michael: God I'm so unoriginal, but that first cup of coffee consistently rates up there.
Stephen: When my honey cuddles me in the morning. Or The first toke of the day. It depends.

Tom: The Puny & Revolting Men of Advertising Smile
Stephen: Fun to play: My Life's a Mediocre Piece of Shit.
