Greystone by the Numbers – August 2016

Greystone by the Numbers  is an admittedly convoluted way to introduce you to another side of our team! These brief “interviews” begin by putting everyone’s name in a numbered list and a number randomizer is used to pick 3 “chosen ones” each month.  After those 3 have been chosen, they select 5 numbers from 1 to 67, each corresponding to a question which was unbeknownst to them.  What happens next…is for your reading pleasure.

Brian Pederson, Implementation Consultant

 

If you could have a drink with someone from history, who would it be and why?

Leonardo Da Vinci – Just amazed at all the things he was able to do in his lifetime.

If you met a genie, and he offered you 3 wishes, what would they be?BrianP

I could go with the traditional: 1. Lots of money 2. Lots of power 3. More wishes

but I will go with: 1. Ability to time travel, so I could meet Da Vinci 2. Ability to speak any language – so I could speak with Da Vinci 3. No more pain for myself or anyone that I care about

What is one of your pet peeves?

Slow moving people. Be it walking, typing, talking. I can be kind of impatient sometimes.

If you could ask your future self one question what would it be?

How has your life been?

What’s the best piece of advice anyone has ever given you?

Never stop never stopping

Zach Benedum, Procurement Manager

 

GalapagosWhat song do you love to sing to in your car?

Wannabe – Spice Girls

What food did you used to like, but now hate?

Actually, I love all food. The better question is, what food don’t I like?

What was the last book you read?

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team – Patrick Lencioni

What is one of your pet peeves?

I have multiple, but my biggest is brown shoes with a black belt or vice versa. I’m OCD, so messes and things that don’t match drive me insane. And loud chewing. Oh, and don’t forget the guy who drives slow in the fast lane.

What is your alter ego’s name?

El Gringo Loco – I lived in Ecuador for a few years and I had friends who never knew my real name, they only knew me as Gringo Loco. This basically translates to the Crazy American.

Matt Carson, Technical Engineer

 

If you could trade lives with one person for an entire day, who would it be and why?

Kim Jung Un – So I could make wild sweeping humanitarian liberal policies across N. Korea, then watch him implode in the aftermath. And alsofind out where he gets that sweet haircut.

If you were prime minister/ruler of the world what laws would you make?

My first act of office would likely be to disband my office. If I were Ruler of the world something horribly wrong must have happened and I am not qualified to fix it.

What part of pop culture do you wish would just go away?

You mean other than Pop Culture in general? I wish that people would stop caring what celebrities do and about their opinions on important matters. They are actors and singers; they are not equipped to answer questions about anything other than acting or singing.

 

What is your favorite music album of all time?

AFI – The Art of Drowning

What is your favorite saying?

“Fool me once, shame on…shame on you. Fool me…you can’t get fooled again.” – George W. Bush
