WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK WHEN YOU WAKE IN THE MORNING:
Another day, another 2 pence. Actually, I think of all the things to be
done and how to make the Captain think I am as good as my friend, Horatio.
>BATTLE: SCARY OR EXCITING: At first they were exciting. Then reality
>about the battles set in. I realized they meant to kill us, so I panicked.
> Horatio told me it was all right to be scared as long as it didn't bother
>my duties as an officer. Now, I think of them as a duty to God, my country
>and to help Horatio stay alive.
>FAVORITE FOODS: Roast beef, ham and some trout or two. It has to be
anything but that gruel I was given in prison. That food would make you
want to starve yourself (and I did try)
>> >CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA:
>Vanilla with some of those chocolate chips like things in it.
>STORMS, COOL OR SCARY:
> Depends on the severity of the storm. I like some storms because the
>ship moves faster. The severe ones. I don't care for. I got thrown
>around the jolly boat and that hurts. Well, that is how we orginally
>escaped. Horatio made me feel guilty when he said he would go back to that
>prison. I had to say yes only because he say yes.
>Grog, some rum. Sometimes a spot of tea is nice.
>IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE: That
people like Simpson would not be around to bother people like me.
>IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT WOULD IT BE: I would not
>like to have fits. I would love to be the hero and not the sidekick. I
>want to be in more of Horatio's adventures.
>HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE:
>Yes. The first woman, Mary, broke my heart. Since then, I have had a
>couple of women -- Amy and Lucy, just to mention two.
IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL:
it is half full. I always try to look at it half full even when it is not.
> >WHAT'S IN YOUR ANXIETY CLOSET: Do you really have to ask? I have so
>many demons in that closet. I like to keep it closed.
>WHAT'S YOUR LOFTIEST DREAM:
>To see the end of the war. To be an actor and make my father and eldest
>brother proud of me. My middle brother has been my only friend besides
> >WHAT'S YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE: That Simpson was still alive.
>>WHAT DO YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOU THAT YOU FEEL THEY DON'T: That I
>>can be a good officer and not let my ailment (fits) get in my way.
> >WHAT OTHER HH CHARACTER WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ANSWER THIS
> >QUESTIONNAIRE: I hear that there is this man named Bush. I hope he can
>be my friend, too. I have heard that he and Horatio will become great
>friends. I would like to know what he thinks. I know what Horatio thinks.
> I know him that well.
