1. What is your name?
For the purposes of this FAQ, Kevin will do just fine, but I'll give you a hint: go to this URL.
2. Where are you from?
Originally I'm from the little town of Manalpan, New Jersey. My family moved to Texas when I was eight or so and I spent the next 10 years living in Houston, Texas. After I graduated from high school, I moved to Austin, Texas.
3. Where do you live now?
In an apartment in Austin, Texas.
4. How tall are you?
Ummm, I'd like to say 5'10", but I'm told that might be generous by an inch or so.
5. What color eyes do you have?
6. What is your favorite color?
7. Are you married?
8. Are you single?
Would a non-single guy have a website with multiple FAQ's about himself on it?
9. Are you rich?
10. Can I call you sometime?
Hmmm, why don't you email me your picture first.
11. Are you the type of guy that enjoys dates?
Actually I prefer plums, though dates and more importantly, the act of dating, has appealed to me a time or two.
12. Do you have any favorite authors or books?
I have to be honest, I'm not much for reading. Not that I don't like books, I just prefer having them read to me via audiobooks or CDs. I generally prefer mystery books, random fact books, history books, and generally anything scientific in nature.
13. What about your favorite TV shows?
I don't watch that much TV. I like the FOX block of The Simpsons, Seinfeld, King of the Hill, and sometimes That 70's Show. Other than that I tend to stick to the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, and movie channels such as HBO (namely b/c I hate commercials).
14. And for the trifecta, how about movies?
I think my favorite movie is The Shawshank Redemption. As for clever movies, I like Guy Ritchie's Snatch. I've enjoyed all 30 or so Hitchcock movies that I've seen and also like a number of old silent pictures with Charlie Chaplin and/or Buster Keaton. A local Austin band, Guy Forsyth, has put on a fabulous show a few times by playing an original score to Buster Keatons, 'The General'.
15. What kind of music do you listen to?
I listen to most everything except for rap and country. Tho, even some rap has grown on me thanks to the Tony Hawk and Grand Theft Auto video game series. I've recently really gotten into listening to more worldly music and of course, being the narcacist that I am, I enjoy listening to some of my own homemade music.
16. What kind of a car do you drive?
A black 2004 Saturn Ion2 Quad Coupe.
17. What other cars have you owned in the past?
My first car was a white 1993 Mitsibushi Mighty Max small pickup truck. This was followed by a cherry-red/mocca Ford F150 Eddie Bauer pickup truck. After that came a cherry-red/mocca 2000 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer. This is about when I moved to New Zealand. First, I purchased a 1989 Honda Beat 50cc Scooter, then a 1981 Subaru Leone. After returning stateside, I purchased my 2004 Saturn Ion2 Quad Coupe.
18. Do you like to travel?
19. Have you visited much of the United States?
Most all of it. I still have yet to visit Alaska, Hawaii, and a few states of the central north such as the Dakotas and Montana.
20. Have you traveled outside of the United States?
Yup. I've traveled to some of the Virgin Islands, Mexico dozens of times, New Zealand, Australia, Fiji and Puerto Rico (technically not part of the US)
21. Where would you like to go next?
I would really like to visit Canada, Cuba, Japan, Thailand, Russia, and then Europe. ...more or less in that order.
22. Do you have any pets?
No - sadly I've seemed to develop certain allergies to some pets.
23. What pets have you had in the past?
My family has had (and I grew up with) cats of the following names: Henry, Fluffy, Tabitha, and Sam. Dog names were: Barney (a sheltie), Freckles a.k.a. Senor Taco (a long haired chihuahua), and Sampson (a mutt). We also had a horse for many years named Tara. Personally, I have had dozens of fish including a few large mouth bass. I had a pet crawfish named Bob, and my personal favorite was my pet mouse named Mario Van Peebles Mouseman III a.k.a. Mousie.

Yes, people that would have typed the former answer as: 'Your the one that read them'.
