  • Mood:
In last night's dream, a bunch of people including a few random friends and family members were gathering at somebody's house for a writing exercise. There were probably about 20 people there, and we were sitting at tables. The guy who was running the exercise told us to write as if we were dreaming (well, I was...). So we had to write about if we were in jail, what our worst enemies would say to either us, our spouses/significant others, our best friends, or our kids. I don't have many enemies, let alone a "worst" enemy, so I just picked the first person that came to mind. I didn't want to reveal her identity to the group, so I tried to leave it vague. So the story was, I was standing in a dungeon-like jail cell, and Enemy Girl was walking by, because she was visiting her cousin or something. I started writing about how she led a double life and was Avril Lavigne's seeeeecret true identity (wait, what?). I wrote that she was cute and all, and I had originally liked her, until I found out how nasty she was. I wrote something like, "I shouldn't have tried to be her friend, because she's rotten to the core." My alarm kept going off, so I never got to write down what she would say to me, and I'm kind of glad. I know what she'd say, and I'm glad I didn't have to dream it or share it with others in the group.

Here. Have a survey thingy. 'Cause I steal 'em.

1. Do you like blue cheese?
not particularly

2. Do you own a gun? A shotgun? or rifle?
I have a plastic handgun in my car, and I used to have a BB gun. I really like riflery, but I don't practice very often.

3. What flavor of Kool Aid was your favorite as a kid?

4. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments?
I have serious issues with pretty much anything medical. I avoid doctors unless it's absolutely necessary. I haven't been to a doctor in over 3 1/2 years. I get really antsy even if it's a non-invasive doctor like a neurologist.

5. What do you think of hot dogs?

6. Favorite Christmas Movie?
I despise the holiday season, but if you don't love "A Christmas Story," there's something seriously wrong with you.

7. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
juice (preferably apple), though I usually don't eat in the morning

8. Can you do push-ups?
ha, no... I can lift heavy furniture, but I can't even do a push-up

9. What is your favorite piece of jewelry?
I don't wear jewelry. I think I have a few pieces of mostly costume jewelry lying around... no idea which would be my favorite though

10. Favorite hobby?
video games

11. Do you have A.D.D.?
I wasn't diagnosed, but I have my suspicions. Then again, I'm wired rather oddly, so that's probably just a symptom of the greater weirdness of my brain

12. What trait you hate about yourself?
I don't mind being socially awkward and introverted, but I hate that I consistently fail to communicate. No matter how much I think I improve, it's like there's an inner block in my mind that won't let me get my feelings across. It makes it really hard to deal with other people. Sure, I can manage to have a conversation with someone, but when it comes to saying what I really want, having a meaningful discussion, or dealing with others' emotions, I just freeze up and withdraw. It's partially that I don't know how to react to a lot of social situations and partially that I just can't deal with it. Sometimes I manage to at least get part of what I want to say written down, but it's really hard to open up. I wish I could communicate better. I try, and sometimes I improve, but I think it's always going to be a major roadblock for me.

13. Middle name?
"It starts with E..."
"...and ends with SHUT UP!"

14. Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment?
I want spaghetti for dinner
The vet appointment is at 7, right?
I wonder if there's something questionable going on between two of my friends.

15. Name 3 drinks you drink regularly?
iced tea, apple juice, cranberry juice

16. Current worry at the moment?
how much the vet bill will be

17. Current hate right now?
that people seem to think the Christmas season should start in October and end in January (It's ONE FREAKING DAY, people! Seriously! At least wait until after Thanksgiving to play Christmas music NONSTOP and hang around outside every store with that irritating Salvation Army bell and try to drain my dwindling cash flow when I just bought a house in April and have to deal with winter heating bills and vet bills and other stuff...)

18. Favorite place to be?
in bed

19. How did you bring in the New Year?
watching Mariah Carey prance around almost naked in the middle of winter on my mom's TV... so very boring. And I don't even like Mariah Carey, her songs make my ears bleed.

20. Where would you like to go on vacation?

21. Name three people who WILL complete this?
Suck, My, and Cock

22. Do you own slippers?
yeah, but I don't usually wear slippers

23. What shirt are you wearing?
a t-shirt and my Maui hoodie

24. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?
I don't know if I've ever done that. It might be nice to lie on them, but sleeping in them might be weird. I prefer regular cotton, or flannel in winter (mmm... I should get some flannel sheets)

25. Can you whistle?

26. Favorite colors?

27. Would you be a pirate?
Arrrr! Avast! I like to think I'd be a good pirate, but I get really antsy if I'm stuck on a boat with other people for more than about 20 minutes.

28. What songs do you sing in the shower?
I don't sing in the shower. I sing in the car a LOT though. Usually, it's Tori Amos, Hannah Montana, or one of the various musical soundtracks (including Bollywood!)

29. Favorite girl's name?
hmmm... maybe Andromeda, Nandini, Persephone...

30. Favorite boy's name?
Agamemnon, Oberon, Mephistopheles, Orion... (yes, I have odd taste in names, and I'm totally a mythology geek)

31. What's in your pocket right now?
cell phone, keys, and my new credit card (just a replacement for the expiring one)

32. Last thing that made you laugh?
watching Shrek 3 last night

33. Best bed sheets as a child?
They weren't very interesting when I was a young sprout, but I had some red flannel sheets about 15 years ago that felt pretty awesome. I currently have Transformers sheets on my bed, because my inner child is totally spoiled.

34. Worst injury you've ever had?
appendicitis... that was not fun

35. Do you love where you live?
it's a decent house, in a decent neighborhood, so I'm satisfied

36. How many TVs do you have in your house?
technically 2, but only 1 is hooked up, and the other is one Rose left behind

37. Who is your loudest friend?

38. How many dogs or cats do you have?
2 cats, 1 rat

39. Does someone have a crush on you?
Yeah... like 4 people (that I know of). It's kind of weird... and confusing... and I wonder how hard they must have hit their heads. Seriously, do they even have standards? WHAT IS WRONG WITH THEM?!?!?!?!?!

40. Who is your favorite author?
hmmm... but there are so many! I guess JK Rowling, Jean Auel, and Tamora Pierce

41. What is your favorite candy?
I don't know, maybe Reese's Pieces. I don't eat candy too often. I like salty snacks more than sweet snacks.

42. Favorite Sports Team?

43. Do you like your job?
It's ok. I'm just glad to have a decent job with funny coworkers, even if I keep getting stuck making changes to the SOF tables and tech specs...

44. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Depends on how much money I have and who is going with me, but I want to go to India, Greece, and Sweden

45. Where did you go on your last vacation?
up to Vermont, but that wasn't much fun, since nobody was at Wilden except Pop Pop, and then he had to die the day I was supposed to leave...
