Full Name:  Silas Michael Knight, formerly Silas Nagy, formerly Silas Monroe, formerly Silas Little.  (It's a long story).

Birthdate: September 8, 1977.  Virgo (which makes me an arrogant perfectionist.  So they say....)

Schooling: AA in Humanties from College of the Redwoods, three years training in Theatre at Humboldt State University.  One Year certification at the Dell' Arte International School of Physical Theatre. Clown College!

Skills:  Clowning, juggling, acrobatics, fire breathing, torches, swinging, mask work, dance (tango, hip hop, jazz, modern, swing, belly dance), slapstick, Stupid Human Tricks.

Hobbies:  Nightclubbing, massage, dying my hair, creating a spectacle of myself.

Areas of Study/Exploration:  Contortion, glass walking, escape artistry, pain tolerance.

Favorite Board Game: Strip Jello-Shot Twister.  Fun for the entire family.

Favorite Smells:  The smell of play-doh right after opening a new container!

Least Favorite Smells:  Those damned bodies after a couple weeks stuffed into my closet.  If only my no-good-landlord would offer better sanitation pickup...

Worst Feeling in the World: I was going to say feeling alone.  But then I remembered that sliding down an enormous cheese grater naked is pretty bad too.  So then I figured: sliding down an enormous cheese grater naked... and having no one to share it with.

First Thing You Think of When You Wake up in the Morning: Where am I, who the heck are all these people, why am I wearing the nurses uniform, and where the hell did that goat come from?

Favorite Color:  I have two: infrared and ultraviolet.  They're all I wear...

How MAny Rings Before You Answer the PHone:  Negative one. I like to surprise people...

Future Child's Name:  I've given this one a lot of thought.  There's a lot of power in names, one shouldn't chose one lightly.  The wrong name can screw up a child's entire life.  So I've definitely decided on Beelzebub.  Though if it's a boy...

What is the Most Important Thing in Life:  Some sentimental people would say friends.  But I'm an independent.  And some pragmatic people would say money, but I'm not greedy.  I know what's really important: friends with money.

Favorite Food: Anything cooked by someone else.

Do You Like To Drive Fast: Only when there are flashing red and blue lights behind me.

Do You Sleep With a Stuffed Animal:  Never!  Unless no one else is available.  Or during thunderstorms.  Or when my night light has burned out...

Storms: Cool or Crazy: Thunderstorms?  Scary.  Energy storms that rip fabrics into space and time: fucking awesome!

First Car: A red MG Midget convertible.  It sounded like a lawnmower and started shaking uncontrollably when I drove it too fast (say...over 35mph).  For most of the time it had no top and no windshield wipers, during one of humboldt's rainiest seasons (i.e. winter, spring, summer, or fall).  I had to drive soaking wet with a washcloth in hand to wipe the rain off the windshield at every stop just so I had 10% visibility.  It was the coolest car I've ever owned.

If You Could Meet One Person, Living Or Dead, Who Would it Be?  The living one.  The dead one wouldn't be much of a conversationalist.

Favorite Alcoholic Drink:  How about my favorite alcoholic drink quote:

"A woman drove me to drink and I didn't even have the decency to thank her."
-W.C. Fields

and for the teetotalers:

Abstainer: a weak person who yields to the temptation of denying himself a pleasure. ... Ambrose Bierce

What is your Zodiac: Jokko the Jester

Do You Eat Broccoli Stems: Only when I can't get my hands on a few rusty nails and a side order of glass.

What is Your Ideal Job: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, being paid to be me.  (It's better than my Guidance Counselor's suggestion: Professional Car Starter for People in the Witness Protection Program)

If You Could Dye Your Hair Any Color:  Plaid

Ever Been in Love: Yeah, but it never worked out.  Story as old as time.  Irreconcilable differences.  I wanted to take things a bit more seriously, she wouldn't drop the restraining order.  You know how it goes.

Is the Glass Half Empty or Half Full:  Doesn't matter, the smart person just gets the waitress to refill the damned thing and stop worrying about it.

Favorite Movie:  Ethel the Aardvark Goes Quantity Surveying

Do You Type the Right Way:  Depends.  Is "with my feet" right or wrong?

What is Under Your Bed:  A 9 foot purple monster named Stanley.  He used to sleep on top of the bed but he kept hogging all the covers

Favorite Sport to Watch: Ferret Legging.  Two men wearing loose fitting pants tied shut at the ankles, each drops several frantic ferrets down his pants.  Last one standing wins.  IF you can call it "winning".

Will Anyone Notice that You Stole These Questions From a Cheesy Internet Survey?: Only if they're not blind and possesing the IQ of your standard desert topping.
