1. What's on your bedside table?
well, my computer desk is next to my bed, and i use a corner of it for when i shed my daily-stuff-i-carry-around-every-day stuff at night
2. What's the geekiest part of your music collection?
all right... i'll admit it... don't pee yourselves laughing at me, ok? yes, i own albums by the following GUILTY PLEASURE artists: hanson, ricky martin, blink 182 (hey, some of their songs crack me up), etc. plus, most of the rest of my cd collection is geeky, so THERE!
3. What do you eat when you raid the fridge at night?
i don't have a fridge, and when i'm home i don't go downstairs at night because my mom will wake up at the sound of a fly farting in ethiopia. i just swipe all the yummy fatty sugary prepackaged stuff when they aren't around to yell at me (wellllll, if you don't want me getting fatter than i already am, why did you buy these?).
4. What is your secret guaranteed weeping film?
lilo and stitch! and ice age! and shrek, during that scene where he and fiona are separated! yeah, kids movies make me cry.
5. If you could have plastic surgery, what would you have done?
well, i'm anti plastic surgery unless it's reconstructive (like if a woman lost a breast or two from cancer, then implants would be all right), but if i absolutely HAD to have it, i'd, um, let's say, make myself maybe a size A... i like boobies, i just don't like mine...
6. Do you have a completely irrational fear?
the tai bo video guy! he has CLEAVAGE! also, i'm terrified of vampires. and hypodermic needles and just about everything medical (we have to get meningitis vaccines in about a week and i'll probably have a panic attack and collapse... i REALLY don't know how i survived my appendectomy over a year ago...)
7. What is the little physical habit that gives away your insecure moments?
well, i have tourette syndrome, so it's hard to tell if i'm insecure because i'm always twitching one way or another. i have trichotillomania too, so hair-pulling is another constant. however, moments of insecurity REALLY amplify the tics and pulling.
8. Do you ever have to beg?
no, i ask politely and look cute and usually they say yes. this is because i rarely ask for anything, and i'm very polite. i did hound my parents about getting me a computer for YEARS, and they fiiiiiinally did near the end of my senior year in high school... only as a bribe to go to allegheny. i'm so submissive i hate it.
9. Do you have too many love interests?
i don't have a crush on anyone (real) at the moment.
10. Do you know anyone famous?
yeah, i met john stamos when i was 11 for 3 seconds. also, i know russ todd, some official guy from norwich university who's apparently a big cheese general (i used to whack him with my chicken leg pillow whenever i saw him in vermont - it's a weird story). i also know bill keith, tamora pierce, and a bunch of other published writers, though i met them all (except bill, who i've known for about a year and a half or so) this summer at confluence.
11. Describe your bed.
well, they're bunked at the moment, though since i don't have a roommate i want to get the top one off. i took off the mattress. i have green sheets, but i just washed them today so they're still in the laundry hamper. i also have a blanket and a spongebob pillow. i hung a little dream catcher over my bed too.
12. Spontaneous or plan?
whenever i plan things, spontenaity gets in the way.
13. Who should play you in a movie about your life?
well, ME, but if i'm dead, some REALLY short, fat girl who doesn't smile a lot could play me.
14. Do you know how to play poker?
15. What do you carry with you at all times?
keys, pocketknife, student ID card, and a pencil
16. How do you drive?
like this: *crash* oops...
17. What do you miss most about being little?
i don't miss anything about being little! i'll always be little, and i'm darn proud of it!
18. Are you happy with your given name?
no. i shorten it to "ade" and that works.
19. What color is your bedroom?
here, they're white. at home, they're "chardonnay" (i had a fun time requesting a gallon of chardonnay at the hardware store when i was 11 or 12...)
20. What was the last song you were listening to?
21. Have you ever been in a school play?
several, back in the day... my best performance was being rory the leprechaun in an abridged version of "o'halloran's luck" in 6th grade for that extracurricular st. patty's day catholic school play. that was a lot of fun, and i got to wear cool curly elf shoes!
22. Have you ever been in love?
23. Do you like yourself and believe in yourself?
i love me! clap if you believe in ade!
24. Have you ever done any illegal drugs?
not that i know of...
25. Do you think you're cute?
i'm gosh darn adorable!
26. Do you consider yourself to be a nice person?
i really try, and i think i am most of the time, but i can be a real bitch sometimes, expecially to my immediate family. they really bring out the worst in me.
