GETTING TO KNOW YOU.. What's your full name? Azim Yazdani. Your age: Older than you are! Over two decades. Where do you live? In a land where little happens after dark and the weather's usually lousy. Kansas, actually. Hair color? Black, with occasional streaks of white! If you could dye your hair any color, what would you choose? I'm not one for changing my hair colour. Black it stays... Eye color? Dark brown. Do you wear contacts/glasses? Glasses. Occupation? I don't really do much. I'm supposed to be getting a degree, but that's chugging along at a sedantary pace. Can you touch your nose with your tongue? You know, I've never met anyone who claims to be able to! Come to think of it, I've never tried it...just a sec. OK, now I know the answer is no! Curl your tongue? Yup, it curls. Do you drive fast? It's all a a point of view isn't it? Really: No. Seriously. Do you sleep with a stuffed animal? Err, no. How many different cities have you lived in? Three. What's under your bed? A folding table, some books, various bits of junk that somehow end up staying in my room. What's on your mouse pad? My ugly cordless mouse (refer to the 'The ARP Bragging Corner!' thread in General Hardware). What book are you reading now? Nothing that I'm not required to. I used to be a prodigious reader, but I haven't done much reading lately. Your most prized possession? My life and sanity (though I suspect both are slipping slowly away!). The next event/acquisition you're looking forward to? I'm not one to dwell on things to come (well, not usually). FAVORITE THINGS... Favorite food? No real favourites. I am easily satisfied most of the time. Favorite drink? Same as above, though I should point out I've been drinking quite a bit of tea lately. Favorite alcoholic drink? I'm not much of a drinker to be honest. Favorite car? This is a hard one. I like cars, and to choose one as a favourite would be just about impossible for me. I'll list off a few that I like though: (vintage) Mercedes SSK (ex-Count Felice Trossi), Ferrari 250GTO, Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato (modern) Ferrari Enzo Ferrari, Ferrari F40, Aston Martin Vantage (the fabulous supercharged V8 one) So many cars have caught my eye that if I really wanted to create a list it would include hundreds of cars. I'll leave the list brief, as above. Favorite sports? Not much of a sports person. F1 perhaps? Favorite time of the year? Anytime when I am free to do as I please. Favorite relaxation spot? My bed! Favorite music? My taste in music is quite varied. I listen to everything from arias from Puccini operas to Queen, The Beatles, Bach, etc. Diehard groups/singers I keep on going back to are: Queen, Simon and Garfunkel, Abba, Billy Joel and a few others that don't come to mind. Anything but rap, country and heavy metal. Favorite board game? Can't say for sure here. I'm too conservative for Monopoly and Risk, and too lazy for Scrabble. Not a board game, but same vein - Jenga's fun! Favorite book? No real favourites. I've read so much I can hardly remember what I've gone through. Favorite cartoon growing up? My childhood is a blur. I remember watching cartoons, just not which ones . Favorite movie so far? As you might have noticed, I'm not one to pick favourites. Blame the politically correct side of me which doesn't like assigning labels . I'll watch just about anything that isn't a romance. ON ARP... Member since: 31st August 2004. Discovered it through: I discovered the site years ago when it was hosted on an old P-90 (I think) before Adrian got the domain. I'm more of a lurker than a poster, so I only joined the forums last year after meeting PsYkHoTiK. Most frequently visit: (i.e. BOG, which forum, news, reviews, etc) General Hardware. Fondest memory/Best thing about ARP? ARP is big enough to have a sizeable audience, yet still small enough to have a casual and friendly atmosphere throughout the site. Person you would most like to meet from the community? (whom you've not met!) The boss! One thing you'd like to see on the site: Hmmm.... LIFE AS A BIG PICTURE... What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning? Another five minutes in bed won't hurt! If I had a lot of money, I would... Do as I please! Live the good life, etc. If I had the time, I would... There is so much I want to do and should do, but never really have. Learn a few new skills, build great new things, etc. What inspires you? $. Well, usually. Lifetime goals? Be rich enough that I should never have to work another day, then enjoy the rest of my life. Who are you going to interview? This is the annoying part. I had been planning to interview you if someone picked me! Will have to get back to you on that. Additional questions a)Sloth b)Big foot c)Gorilla Given the choice of this 3 animals which would you think best describe you? (not my idea btw its Psy's idea) None. I am not always active, but certainly not slothlike. I do not have big feet. I never did take to beating my chest. What would be the first thing you run out with if you were in a fire? My backup folder (CDs/DVDs). Who is your idol? There are plenty of people I admire, but no one I idolise. What is your pet peeve? It takes a lot to annoy me, but there are times I get ticked off. Like when attendees to business meetings arrive late and don't bother calling ahead (yeah, had that happen to me a few times). And people who renege on commitments. Windows or linux? Windows BTW you ain't getting off without showing us a picture!!
