Twenty Questions from Harlequin

Please answer all questions to the best of your ability— write what you believe. (Flip and sassy answers are entertaining but seldom useful for these purposes. False answers designed to mislead me and protect your identity will waste our time, and annoy the pig.) I will keep the answers in strictest confidence. If a question seems ambiguous, choose an interpretation and answer that. Answers may be as long or short as you deem appropriate. You need not be sober when answering these questions: in vino veritas. If you find yourself considering “I don’t know” for an answer, try thinking of all the answers you would disagree with until you find something acceptable to yourself.
