Name a great website you would recommend to others.
McSweeneys contains a collection of very interesting/smart/funny/neat/inspriring/amusing writing.

On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 as highest), how often do you dream at night?
As I understood it, there’s a science to hwo much we dream – the amount of sleep and approximate amount of REM that we get every night. I think the question should be more along the lines of “How often do you remember dreaming?” which is just about every night for me. Hard to put that on a scale, sorry.

Did you have a pet as a child? If so, what kind and what was its name?
We had a cat named Purdy Cat until I was 4 and we moved to Montreal to a place where the landlord didn’t allow pets.

Main Course
If you had the chance to star in a commercial, what would you choose to advertise?
I was in a beer commercial just over 10 years ago but that wouldn’t have been something that I’d choose to advertise. It’d be fun to be in a Mac commercial.

What is your favorite kind of hard candy?
Wow – I actually don’t really enjoy hard candies. I guess if I had a choice, I’d go for one of those little maple syrup ones that they have at JavaMoose.
