1. Large or small family?
Small immediate family, huge extended family.
2. Potato chips or pretzels?

Our own house, since October 2000.

9. Comedy or drama?
Black comedy which is close to drama (not stupid funny, or disease-of-the-week drama -- stuff like The Sopranos or Six Feet Under).
10. Thought-provoking question of the week: The city of Boston has recently banned smoking in all restaurants and bars. Would you want to see such a law passed in your city/town/country, or not?
A bylaw like this came into effect in my town on May 1st and I say that it couldn't have happened soon enough. It's been a long time coming. I used to spend a lot of times in clubs seeing bands and all of the second-hand smoke I was exposed to has left me with a serious smoke allergy. For public health reasons, I think that this type of bylaw should be in effect in all public places.
