  • Mood:
Ah, another unproductive weekend. Well, I did *some* school-related reading today, so I guess that counts. Since I don't plan on dragging 50-or-so pounds of fabric to Caflisch over icy sidewalks in below zero weather, I think I'm going to attempt washing my undies and socks in the bathtub and see what happens. I've been saying I'm going to do that for the past week. Whoah, that sentence was really bad. English major indeed. Anyway, I haven't done laundry since I was at home (around 2 1/2 weeks ago). I also need to go shopping. Nick said he'd drive me once the roads are better... but that may not be for a while. Bleh. I haven't cooked anything but ramen lately since the weather is too miserable to walk to Bilo.

Last night's weekly games night/anime night/McKinley's ritual was pretty fun. But for some reason, on Thursday and Friday I was really jittery and shaky for no reason I can think of at the moment. I was also really hyper on Thursday, don't know why. Ah well. *shrugs*

2. What is your weapon of choice? Minerva!
3. Would you hit a member of the opposite sex? I've been known to hit people who threaten me, and if someone really annoys me or says something I don't like, I'll punch him (but not hard)

6. Do you prefer sweets, salty foods, or spicy foods? Sweet and/or salty, but not spicy
7. Have you ever looked at a small housepet or child and thought "Food!"? *evil laugh* You're talking to the self-proclaimed cannibal here...

6. Have you ever stolen anything? When I was 7, I occasionally swiped gum from the grocery store... and according to several lunchtime conversations with Nick and Ben and others, that's just as bad as murdering thousands of people (so I might as well go ahead and do that too since I'm already doomed!)

4. Do you get annoyed by coming in second place? No, I'm just surprised I ever win anything

4. Do you believe in magic? Yes, but I don't really use it.
5. What was the last promise you broke? On Wednesday after Golem, some of us were going to see the new layout of my room and Nick said he'd only go see if I went to some meeting with him afterward and talked to a girl about living in the house next year. Of course, we ended up staying in my room for several hours until long after the meeting was over, so I couldn't exactly keep that promise. But he didn't mind, and I emailed the girl anyway.
6. Have you ever said the words to a prayer and not meant it? Yeah, when everyone is supposed to recite a prayer in unison
7. Do you believe that anyone could be perfect? No, everyone has their flaws

1. What are you most afraid of? Medical stuff like surgery
2. What's the last thing you did that was really brave? I asked someone for a favor (and I rarely do that because it makes me really nervous)
3. Who is your favorite superhero, and why? Justice Guy (if you're a Stephen Lynch fan, you'll appreciate it)

1. Have you ever been summoned for jury duty? Not yet
2. If they reinstituted the draft (for both genders), would you go, or would find some way out of it? I'd find some way out of it. Boot camp would be a total nightmare for me.
3. Do you support capital punishment (the death penalty)? No, killing people is never a good idea
4. Which should be guaranteed legal? Frankly, the government has way too much power as it is, and it's gaining more. Things like drugs, underage drinking, and prostitution should be legal, and if people want to fuck up their lives, let them suffer the consequences

1. Who is the weirdest person you know? Myself, Megan, Nick, and Laura
2. Have you ever participated in a vigil? On September 11th, they had one outside of Brooks, and I went to that. I barely knew anybody there, but we were all holding hands and people were standing up and speaking out, and there was a real sense of community
3. Do you take advice when it's given? If I agree with it and can bring myself to
4. What area are you wisest in? Grammar! Yarrrr!
5. Do you drive defensively? I'm really passive and let people go ahead of me all the time
6. Have you ever had unprotected sex outside of marriage? No, and I don't plan to
7. What did you learn today? Carolyn told me that her friend Joe named his kitten Calista and calls her Kali (like the goddess) when she's bad. We took care of the kitten for a week a few months ago, she was really sweet and cuddly.
*. And of course, what is your favorite heavenly virtue? Prudence
