  • Mood:
I want to go trick-or-treating this year. I haven't gone since my senior year of high school (I think). Oh, and if you tell me I'm too old for trick-or-treating, you're not my friend any more. Now, if I could just find someone local to go with me... and hope that the half of the neighborhood that does know me will either mistake me for a younger person (I knew being really short would come in handy some day...) or forget how ancient I really am. Well, if I'm going to go as a Red Hat Society lady, perhaps the comparative oldness of my costume will make me seem even younger. Wait, does this mean I'll have to try my hand at applying grown-up makeup? I suck at that. And it makes me look funny. Oh well.

D always has the best surveys.

1. You're Infected. Your Myspace Top 8 has the cure. One must die. Who goes?
This question barely makes any sense, but if I had to kill off one of my top 8 (I don't see how "top 8" status even matters)... I don't know. *looks to actually see who's on her top 8* Oh, but I like all those people! Screw it. I'll die infected... with whatever I have.

2. What Myspace friend knows the REAL you best?
I don't know, probably Rose.

3.Describe a typical Sunday for you:
sleeping until lunch, not eating lunch unless Mom bugs me to eat, showering, playing Runescape, maybe a little writing or knitting, having dinner, playing Runescape, cleaning the rat cage (Monday is trash day), and going to bed (tomorrow will be more exciting than that - it's PUMPKIN DAY, and we're making/eating all sorts of pumpkin foods with the Ziffs!)

4. What routines do you follow when you wake up?
put off waking up as long as possible, go to the bathroom, brush my hair, check email/comics/etc., and shower

5. If alcohol was banned worldwide, what would your reaction be?
What, no more delicious Mai Tais? The outrage! And then I'd make a fortune bootlegging moonshine. Or something.

6. When was the last time you cried?
no idea

7. Your CD collection is going to be repossessed. You may keep one.
Go die. Seriously, just die. Um... probably Tori Amos - Little Earthquakes

8. Do you believe world peace is possible?
not with political structures the way they are right now

9. I'm a genie. Name your wish.
GIVE ME A GOOD JOB DOING EDITING OR SOMETHING, WITH DECENT HOURS, AT LEAST 30K A YEAR, AND REASONABLE COWORKERS. What, I only get one wish? If I had a GOOD genie, my other two would be: the ability to fly, and a pony (hey, everyone wants a pony)

10. Name one thing about the OPPOSITE sex that automatically turns you off.
real beefiness (I mean, having muscles is one thing, but looking like a football player or bodybuilder is just unattractive to me)

11. Name one thing about the SAME sex that automatically turns you off.
Why oh WHY do so many girls wear thongs? Gross!

12. Speaking of SAME sex, what do you think of Brokeback Mountain?
It was ok, kind of slow-moving and long, but interesting at times. Why are gay love stories always so depressing? Either someone dies or they break up when they were meant to be together, or both.

13. What popular phrase do you find to be incredibly annoying?
"that's so gay"

15. Leatherface is in the kitchen. Will you fight to victory, or hide?
Leatherface? You mean, like those 70-year-old women who wear bikinis at the beach and have the most horrible-looking tans? If one of those ladies is in my kitchen, I'm going to hide. And call 911 and ask to speak to a dermatologist.

16. Do you feel that people underestimate you?
No, people seem to think I'm destined for greatness, when I'm really too lazy to even attempt it. But then again, I may surprise myself.

17. When you're in a bad mood, what will always put you in a better mood?
jumping on a trampoline or eating apple pie

18. Honestly, do you talk about Myspace in real life?
only occasionally, if it's something interesting and relevant

19. Have you met someone online in person?
I met most of the Alphans online before I met them in person, and I've met a couple people I knew online first (always friends-of-friends or involved in something with me, never just someone I randomly met online)

20. When it comes to cybersex, are you game?
I don't find cybersex very thrilling.

21. Do you believe minimum wage should be raised?

22. If someone at a bar gives you "the look" how do you respond to it?
assume they're looking at whoever I'm with or get confused and creeped out

23. Desperation happens. Do you take advantage of desperate people?
not usually

24. Pretend you're 15 deep in beers. Describe what you would be doing now?
Ewww, beer is gross. Can it be Mike's instead. Well, if I'm not dead, I'm in horrible condition and in the hospital.

25. Sometimes people get depressed. Are you the one they turn to?

26. Describe your "style".
HA, I have a "style." Um... loose t-shirt, usually with something amusing on it, a gray hoodie, and loose pants (usually jeans or something like that). And funky socks.

invasive medical procedures
