Sun Spot

Ahoy! Between the Daily Doodles and Cask of Blog, there were many questions asked, and I've picked some out today to provide random answers to. Did I say that out loud? I mean, I picked some random questions to provide completely accurate answers to.   >.<   Nobody noticed. Keep typing. Here they are!

What do Doodles mean to you? (TheRunt, Cobalt)
The Doodles are amazing. As a whole set of mini-contests they're fun anyway, and I'm always so impressed with the entries people produce for them. I love that people have embraced the event in the way that I envisaged it - that it's fun and a challenge and an opportunity to do new things, and that winning isn't the thing to obsess about. "The Doodlers" are like family, and seem an incredibly fun and nice group of people to spend time with.

Where do you get the ideas for your contest? How long does it take you to come up with them? (TheRunt, Cobalt)
Ideas for events tend to hit me with alarming frequency. I always have far more events in planning that I could ever have time to run. I have a particularly high incoming frequency of silly event ideas, some of which I've been desperate to run. I rely on Artemis to rein me in on some of the dafter ideas. She's generally right. ;)

Do you volunteer to be a event host or did Cleaver force you? (Sharkiez, Sage)
Cleaver forced me. With blacksmithing tongs.

You have got six months to live, what will you do first? (Casiopia, Cobalt)
Tell my family, and cancel next year's calendar order.

Which is the last book you read? (Casiopia, Cobalt)
"Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince". Again.

Do you like all of your co-workers? (Viconia, Viridian)
Yes. They're the best bunch of puny mortals I could ever wish to work with.

There are naked statues of you on display all over the world, we have footage of you running around in a cape going 'whee!'... What has been the MOST embarassing thing to happen to Mighty Apollo? (Albie, Sage)
In terms of Puzzle Pirates things, probably the most embarrassing was accidentally canceling a large tournament being run by Luigi. The cancel butan was so new it still had cellophane on, and instead of dismissing after looking at it... reader, I canceled it.

What is your favorite color? (Delores, Sage)

Can I have a hug? (Llamagirl, Hunter)
Sure. *hugs*

What is 49+17? (Sainter, Hunter)

Do any of the Ringers have other secret talents? (Domokun, Sage)
Among other things, Artemis and I both play flute and handbells. Although not at the same time. At least, we can both play at the same time, but I don't think either of us individually could manage to play flute and handbells at the same time. Just... not enough hands. Well, I can't. If it turns out that Artemis can, then I apologize profusely, and bow to her greater secret talent. Oh! And also, I'm surprisingly bendy. Does that count as a secret talent?

In the office, do you call your fellow OMs by their real names, Greek God designations, or some cornucopia of the two resulting in really cute nicknames? (Muffynz, Midnight. That's MUFFYNZ. On Midnight. M-U-F-F-Y-N-Z. Not Domokun in any way. That would be ludicrous. Muffmuffmuffynz, he's the man. *coughs*)
I'm not in the office, but I use the Greek god names. I am vaguely aware that there may be other names in use when they play Real Life 4.1 [TM], but it doesn't occur to me to use them. I'm always called "Apollo". Actually, that's not true. I'm occasionally called "Apollo", and sometimes "Pollo", but most often I'm called "Apple". Or, by one colleague, "APLO".

Who would win in a fight: pirates or ninjas? (Capberry, Hunter)
Duh. Pirates would. Ninjas are just goth underachiever pirates, anyway.

If you were stuck on a deserted island and could pick one...but only one...of your co-workers to be stuck with you, who would you pick and why? (Cassis, Sage)
oh noez. Only one? Mmm.
With a twinge of regret for a couple of others (can I have them visit?), in the end I'd have to go for Artemis. She's fun and clever and lovely, and I can talk to her for ages. Most importantly, though, she's really good at making useful items out of junk. It's a critical skill on a deserted island. I'd be sitting around trying to organize the ants into some kind of impromptu sestina contest, and she'll have constructed a functional transmitter out of an old bandana, a couple of corset bones and an earring.

I think that's enough for one go. Thank you for the questions!

That is my question! I have been slighted.

I knew there was no way that Midnight would be silenced. The attempt was made, but it was pitiful. Tsk, tsk.
