There's so many possibilities here. I'm tempted to give a very broad answer like sin, lust or selfishness, or a very specific answer like Hollywood (I wouldn't mind if it blasted off into space
), but somehow I'm not sure whether those are what you're looking for.
I guess news/mass media. It has a purpose, but it's really quite overrated, takes up too much of too many people's time, distracts the intellect and inflames the passions, and is overall more of a force for evil than good.

As far as regular interactions, I honestly don't know. There's so many great actors/actresses, characters and relationships between them all that I can't single one out like that.
If we look at pairings that I would have *liked* to see interact more, though, Jay Smouse and Priscilla Peterson. They were great in Groundhog Jay.

My pastor's family are the perfect role models. The only things that make me hesitate saying this are 1) I'm not sure I would want to put that kind of pressure on them, and 2) I don't want to have to share them any more than I already do.
Do you have any weird quirks?
You know how I say strange things out of the blue sometimes? Well, I do that in real life too. Mostly at home with family, but I still think it counts. The story of me and 'you' on a cliff with swords was made up a long time before I broke it out here.
I get very excited sometimes and jump and run around the house until I'm out of breath (which happens pretty quickly nowadays...)
Sometimes I repeat myself vocally, quietly, when I think I've said something brilliant (often online, but not always).

Of the sweet and sugary type, probably soft-serve ice cream.
GJFH wrote:What sort of things do you find admirable?
Three of the virtues I value the most (not necessarily in this order): loyalty, honesty, and generosity. Also, playing through injury.
Do you prefer scrambled eggs or sunny side up?
Sunny side up.
GJFH wrote:How long does it usually take you to trust someone?
That's an interesting question. When it comes to sharing some of my inner secrets, there are a few people I've opened up to online, some in even a relatively short period of time after we met (like Kaida), but I don't think there's anyone
in real life who knows all or even most of the nature of my turmoil. I keep my cards close to the vest when I feel there's actually something at stake. So, I guess I could say 'quite a long while' when we're talking about my vulnerabilities, or the things that I value the most (I can only think of one person outside of my immediate family off the top of my head who I'd feel very comfortable taking care of my cat).
GJFH wrote:Which Adventures in Odyssey character would you find most entertaining to speak to?
The funny thing is, I'm not sure the characters that are known for being comedic are the ones that most people would like to talk to. Wooton is a sweet individual, but his sense of humor is unconventional, and for many people his age it would probably be an acquired taste. Jay is an amazing hilarious character to listen to, but in real life, you wouldn't be unlikely to end up on the end of one of his barbs sooner or later, and you might not take it so well when you're the one being made fun of. I suppose maybe Eugene. Bart Rathbone might be funny too, even though he can be a jerk, just because he's so over-the-top.
