An excerpt from a tape recording of Martin Stevens' interview with Dr. Henry Wurzbach.
1/20/89 9:00 A.M.
"How are you doing today, Martin?" Doctor Wurzbach's voice entered through the static.
"Good," Martin replied.
"If you do not mind Martin, I would like to go ahead and ask about the first time you discovered your ability," Doctor Wurzbach said with his deep calm voice.
"Sure. Like I said before, it all just kind of happened. Well, I was out with my friends. We were walking home from practice and we got to the bridge across from the park. Michael jumped on the stone wall on one side of the bridge," he stopped.
"Go on," Doctor Wurzbach said.
"He fell... or so I thought he did. But..." he paused again.
"But he did not?" Doctor Wurzbach filled in.
"No. I grabbed his hand and well... he... um... didn't fall."
"So you saved him," Doctor Wurzbach suggested.
"Well, I didn't think I saved him. I just thought it was I don't know "
1: Whats your nickname?
Most used online nickname: Antaria_Nova, or variations of it. And then there's the nickname I got in high school: Force - derived from my family name, Forsblom. And then some other minor nicknames that would make quite a list, so I won't list them.
2: Favorite candy?
That'd be creamy and delicious chocolate.
3: What color are your eyes?
Sort-of moss green, with rusty orange around the pupil.
4: What song would describe your life?
I have no idea, but it would probably sound quite interesting, to say the least.
5: WHAT NUMBER AM I THINKING OF!?
42, because it's the meaning of life, the universe and EVERYTHING.
6: How many fingers do you have? Be honest.
10 in total, 5 on each hand. Boringly normal.
7: What do you want to be eating right now?
8: Dream pet?
A DRAGON. Preferably one that can change its size, so that it wouldn't require a separate house or an empty storage hangar to live in. And also I'd prefer that one could communicate telepathically with it (removes the need for earplugs because of loud roaring) and that it could eat vegetarian food as well (because I don't want a mob of angry farmers assaulting my home) and that it would be approximately as smart as a human (much like in Eragon).
9: What are the first 500 digits in 3.14? PIE!
They are numbers, of course. Silly question.
10: ARE YOU HAPPY RIGHT NOW!?
I wouldn't say happy, but fairly content. Having just had dinner helps with that.
Aaand that's that. Nothing much else to say.
Thanks for reading, g'day, cheers, bye, and what not.
Witty, mostly calm, organised, precise, somewhat of a gamer, loves any good food aswell as fine- and exotic foods, and also likes a good beer or other alcoholic bewerages, in moderate doses. In short, I like what I think is good.
I love sci-fi, fantasy and other awesome good art. I also use the much overused word "awesome" a lot, when I see art wich is well described by that word.
I like being funny, and mostly succeed with some contextual jokes I make out of a subject of discussion or a situation or some such.
I also try to always be polite. If I somehow offend you, it is most likely that was by accident. I can't always know how your mind works and what then offends you, now can I? Sometimes I can make bad jokes too, though. Teasing. But take no offense, okay? I don't wish to make anyone angry or sad.
If I comment on something, I say what I think, not just what you want to hear. I always leave positive comments, though. 'Couse as I said, I don't wish to make ppl miserable. Sometimes after commenting I might continue on with rambling about something. I like to talk to people trough comments and replies to them.
Hmmm, what else, then?
Oh. Yeah, I do like cookies.
