  • Mood:

Here, have some surveys. Happy day-after-Palm-Sunday.

1: Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, find line 4. Write down what it says:
"Hercules (1.3.84-5). Caesar reports how Antony in his excessive revelry 'is not" (from the introduction to "Antony and Cleopatra")

2: Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first?:
Well, the computer table. I'm glad nobody is sitting next to me right now...

3: What is the last thing you watched on TV?:
I forget, but it was on Wednesday night. I remember watching The Fairly Oddparents when Ben, Nick, and Derek came over, then we watched some Law and Order and Star Trek and maybe something else.

4: WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what the time is:
2:38 pm

5: Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?:
2:41 pm

6: With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?:
Other people typing, papers ruffling, just general lab sounds

7: When did you last step outside? what were you doing?:
Walking from McKinley's to Carr, where I am currently... this was around 12:54 pm, because I passed Carolyn and she asked for the time.

8: Before you came to this website, what did you look at?:
My email, the daily For Better or For Worse, the usual routine

9: What are you wearing?: A gray hoodie (not my everyday zip-up one, another fluffier one my mom bought me), Nanowrimo t-shirt (to remind myself that I'm a failure), black corduroy cargo pants, gray striped socks, green boots, undergarments, and my pentacle. Typical Adewear, but I'm only wearing the boots because my Powerpuff Girls sneakers got soaked a few days ago, and I don't think they're dry yet.

10: Did you dream last night?
Yup, dreamed of jogging around Massachusetts, seeing Em, Robertson being the only one to show up for Tuesday group, some weird video game, almost getting caught watching some lame threesome porn, my cats walking around a supermarket, etc.

11: When did you last laugh?
A few minutes ago, reading Sue's email and then responding... *giggles*

12: What is on the walls of the room you are in?:
Just conventional computer lab signs, a blackboard, and a bulletin board

13: Seen anything weird lately?:
Besides myself and my friends? Not really.

14: What do you think of this quiz?:
Certain parts of it are entertaining

15: What is the last film you saw?:
That ES movie a few days ago

16: If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?:
A nice house in the English countryside so I could immediately move there, then I'd hire an accountant or someone to take care of my finances, since I suck at that.

17: Tell me something about you that I don't know:
I'm wearing black underwear today! Yeehaw!

18: If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would you do?:
People would slow down with the breeding! Seriously, there are way too many people in this world. One or two kids per couple, folks! That's all you really need! Well, if you want more that's fine, but make sure you can afford to raise them all!

19: Do you like to dance?:
Uh... only a few silly dances (funky chicken!)

20: Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?:

21: Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?:
Mephistopheles or Bob

22: Would you ever consider living abroad?:
Yeah, possibly in the middle of the English countryside or some other European country

23: Will you pass on this survey?:
*pokes journal*

Where Were You.....

1. When John F. Kennedy was shot (11/22/1963):
I was a tiny egg in my mom's 13-year-old ovary.

2. When Mt. St. Helens blew (5/18/1980):
Still an egg, but it was exactly 3 years before I was born

3. When the space shuttle Challenger exploded (1/28/1986):
Probably running around the house, driving my mom crazy (hey, I was 2 1/2)

4. When the 7.1 earthquake hit San Francisco (10/7/1989):
In kindergarten, probably

5. When the Berlin Wall fell (11/7/1989):
Still in kindergarten

6. When the Gulf War began (1/16/1991):
I remember hearing about it a lot in 2nd grade, and I was worried because my dad said that he might have to go off and fight (but he didn't since he's a high-ranking Naval officer and they don't see much action)

7. When the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was bombed (4/19/1995):
I would have been in 6th grade, so I was probably acting crazy in class and getting sent to the principal's office (ah, Catholic school...)

8. When Princess Di was killed (8/31/1997):
I walked into my parents' room, and my mom was watching it on the news and sniffling a bit

9. When Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold opened fire on their classmates at Columbine High School (4/20/1999):
I was a sophomore in high school... obliviously going through the day...

10. When Bush was first announced President (11/7/2000):
Probably at home, bitter that I was a year away from voting

11. When the 6.8 earthquake hit Nisqually, WA (2/28/2001):
Ah, senior year... I didn't know there was an earthquake that day

12. When terrorists destroyed the World Trade Center (9/11/2001):
I had only been at Allegheny for a few weeks. Someone turned on the TV in my seminar, but the professor turned it off before I saw what was going on. After class, I went back to my room and noticed that my hall was empty and almost everyone had their TVs on. I was on my computer when Carrie (my roommate) burst in, yelled, "Ade, why isn't the TV on?!" and then promptly left after turning on the news. I sat there watching repetitive footage of planes crashing into the towers, and tears just streamed down my cheeks. I was talking to some guy in Pakistan online, and I told him what was going on. That was a crazy day.

13. When Columbia disintegrated during re-entry over Texas (2/1/2003):
I don't know, but I read about it online over the next few days.

    Now I'm picturing the most awkward conversation with a new person... Person: Hi! I'm person! Ade: Hi, I'm Ade. Person: Have you accepted Jesus…

    Time for another "year in retrospect" post. 2010 was actually a pretty good year for me, all things considered. In the middle of January, I adopted…

    Well, NaNoWriMo is over. In one way, I failed to meet my original goal, but I didn't fail epically, and I did make good progress. The original goal…
