Today we saw some old friends, ex-neighbors of ours who were in town. The grownups came over, and later we went to their friends' house where they were staying. Jack and Patrick (the kiddos) have really changed. I think Patrick was shorter than me last time I saw him, now he's at least 5'2" or so (he's 12-ish). Jack, the kid who I used to look out for when he was in kindergarten, is 16 now and getting his license soon. I didn't recognize him at first, his hair is longish now. So my sis and I hung out in a room with half a dozen teenage boys for a couple hours. They mostly ignored us, though I didn't mind. I like watching other people play video games. I like playing video games too, but watching is also fun.
I briefly helped my dad bottle beer today (I was doing homework for once - reading Girl, Interrupted - and he interrupted me to ask for help), and I think I pulled a neck muscle trying to work the bottle cap thingy. I'm such a dork. Eh, I hate beer anyway. The Black Pearl Brewing Company doesn't need my help. They already have one geek at the helm.
Oh. It's a survey. Woot.
sex: Sorry honey, I don't go there yet.
occupation: College student, lazy writer
favorite friend: Hmmm, I don't have an official best friend... but a favorite friend? Well, if I had to pick, probably Megan and Ben
favorite place to be: My room (home or school, doesn't matter - I love my domain) or the writers' house living room
favorite color(s): Rainbow
three main interests: Writing, computer games, uh... other interesting stuff (I don't want to just pick 3!)
your house is: Well, it depends where I am at the moment. Right now the house I'm in is big and on top of a hill, the writers' house is big and white, Wilden is a cottage in Vermont, and I'm really not tied down to a certain place I call "home." Home is many different places.
describe yourself in four words: Ade Ade Ade Ade
best sex: Female!
most memorable memory: Hmmm... so many memorable memories... like the time when I was 6 or 7 and lived in Connecticut and my friend and I went sledding and the sled flipped over and we got facefuls of snow... yep, that was memorable. I think I wrote a story about it in 1st or 2nd grade too.
worst memory: My appendectomy and being in the hospital and wanting to just die... that was no fun
favorite word of all time: Kyrgyzstan!
first best friend ever: Elizabeth, we were friends from when we were in diapers until I moved to Florida when I was 7

love is: The pain that cuts a straight line down to the heart (thank you, Hedwig!)
are you in love: No. I just wish I didn't love a certain someone as much as I do.
love or lust?: A bit of both is divine
when love hurts, you: Become bitter, rant in LJ, and cry a lot
true or false: all you need is love: That's definitely false. You need peace, love, and a hard co.... uh, I mean a lard block
turn ons: Chivalry, British accents, longish hair
your parent's opinion on your bf/gf matter to you?: They know nothing of my dysfunctional love life, and I don't plan on telling them anything. Ever.
the sweetest thing a member of the preferred sex can do for you?: Wear a loincloth and bring me tea and cuddles
tall or short: Doesn't matter, but it'd be nice to not have to look up at someone for once.
