1. How did you name your pets?
There was some research done on dog names that suggested that they best understand two syllables with a vowel sound at the end. So we start there. Then no duplication with friends, family, or their pets. Must be spelled such that a vet office or stranger reading the collar tag can pronounce it.
after that, it's what is pleasant to say and/or meaningful to us. I've written a longer bit about naming our current dog previously, I'll try to link it. Leela (Sevateem, not Turanga) is just right.

2. Poirot or Miss Marpel?
Brother Cadfael.

3. Do you have a FB account too?
yeah. Facebook is a wretched hive of scum and villainy. I don’t browse it anymore. My friends have instructions to earburn me if they want me to see a thing.

4. Books - hardcover or paperback
books! Paperback or ebook; hardcovers are inappropriate for my lifestyle. I like hardcover for reference and game books.

5. Mobile(cell phone): Windows/Android or Apple?
The question is poorly formatted, Windows Phone and Android are separate operating systems. /pedant
Android. I had an iPhone but then they got too big to fit in my pocket.

1. Do you like to shop? Why or why not?
yes. gathering things makes something in the old basic part of my brain really happy.
2. What was the last thing you purchased?
Bed, Bath & Beyond - steel mixing bowl, SilPat, salt cellar w/little spoon, shelving steps, and one of those thingys to defeat the overflow drain and let me fill the tub full
3. Do you prefer shopping online or at an actual store? Why?
actual store. i like to browse and i like to see and feel product. i'm big on quality for price. i only buy stuff online if i've already seen the item in real life, or intangibles like concert tickets.
4. Did you get an allowance as a child? How much was it?
nope. but i did periodically get all the loose change from the bottom of mom's purse if i put it in rolls. it could really add up.
5. What was the last thing you regret purchasing?
a new VCR. the old one wasn't working, but it may have just needed a thorough head cleaning, and the new one isn't as nice a machine.
