i went to the goodbye party for anita, and it was fun, especially when people were running around, attacking each other with balloons. i didn't join in on that, but it was fun to watch. by the way jess, nice job on the decorations.
all right, all right, after this i promise i'll read "paradise lost" since i'm such a procrastinator. and then i'll write stuff (playboy is having a writing contest for college students with big cash prizes) and go to bed so i can wake up tomorrow and work on my project some more, go to fencing practice, study for the quiz on monday, have dinner at the agp house, and do other stuff. yippee!

-- Your eyes: open, blinking, and staring at the monitor
-- Your weakness?: social situations, medical stuff, vampires, being around 95% of males (they just make me uncomfortable...)
-- Your fears: vampires, the tae bo video guy with cleavage, and probably the worst is that one day i'll get a call saying one of my close friends committed suicide and i'll feel helpless and guilty
-- Your perfect pizza: thin crust but thick enough so the toppings stay on, a little sauce, cheese, pineapple, mushrooms, and a little pepperoni
-- One thing you'd like to achieve: getting my work published and making money off of it
// series three - what is

-- Your most missed memory: talk about alliteration! well, let's see... i miss 9th grade: sitting with my 8th grade friends at the lunch table first semester, the silly musicals megan and i each wrote, making fun of mr. reese (i know it's mean...), talking to heather in art class, the "friday tradition" where i'd go home on sarah's bus almost every week, the quadruple wedding, ganesha, all the interesting people my friends and i talked to online (leo, chris, zack, joe, etc.), sarah's hanson obsession, etc. now that was a pretty cool year.
// series four - you prefer

-- McDonald's or Burger King: wendy's
-- Single or group dates: i don't date yet. anyone have a friend for me?
-- Adidas or nike: stride rite, baby! yes, my feet are THAT tiny...
-- Chocolate or vanilla: strawberry
-- Chai or coffee: just tea, thanks

// series five - do you
-- Smoke: nooooooo, icky icky icky!
-- Cuss: occasionally, but never in front of grownups, little kids, or people who are easily offended
-- Take a shower everyday: most of the time. yesterday i skipped one. but if i don't shower, my hair gets really greasy and messy and i feel all icky and grimy
-- Have a crush(es): *sigh* yeah... he's currently dating someone else, but that's ok. we're still good friends, and as far as i know he's oblivious to my feelings so everything is almost hunky-dory...
-- Do you think you've been in love: nah, not yet...
-- Want to go to college: i'm currently wasting my time here, but i don't really want to be in college. i'm just here as an extended moocher, and i don't want to get a job yet.
-- Like high school: NOOOOOOO!!!!!! my senior year was pretty cool (except getting appendicitis and missing the last week of school), but franklin regional is a terrible school district...
-- Want to get married: not really. if i eventually meet someone, fall in love, and want to marry, then i will. if not, that's fine. i'll be content as an old cat lady (though i don't want to die a virgin - i eventually want to know what i'm missing!)
-- Believe in yourself: all right kids, clap your hands if you believe in ade! harder! louder! *clapclapclap* there! you've saved her!
-- Get motion sickness: no, sometimes i feel a little dizzy but it goes away
-- Think you're attractive: sometimes. on a good day i'll look in the mirror and think, "wow, i'm cute." other times i look at myself and think "blech, no wonder you're still a virgin!" i'm ok-looking, i guess.
-- Think you're a health freak: HA! my dad criticizes my eating habits all the time because i eat too much fat, starch, and carbs. fuck dieting, i'll eat what i want, and i don't care if i'm fat!
-- Get along with your parents: now that i'm away from them, yes. i still never tell them anything and don't really trust them, but we don't really yell at each other any more.
-- Like thunderstorms: my alter-ego is the goddess of bad weather, so of course i love them! i hate driving in them though. once i was on the way to megan's house and couldn't figure out how to defog my dad's car and almost panicked but finally figured it out and made it to megan's house, shaking and terrified.
-- Play an instrument: i used to play piano, guitar, harmonica, and a little dulcimer, but i'm not musically inclined at all, and i hated practicing.
// series six - in the past month, did/have you
-- Drank alcohol: nope
-- Smoke(d): nope
-- Done a drug: i had some midol a few days ago, does that count?
-- Have Sex: nope
-- Made Out: nope
-- Go on a date: *sigh* these questions are making me feel pathetic... NOPE!
-- Go to the mall?: nope
-- Eaten an entire box of Oreos: nope
-- Eaten sushi: no, and i don't really like sushi (fish is icky)

-- Gone skating: again, no
-- Made homemade cookies: mmm, i wish...
-- Been in love: nah, just a big crush
-- Gone skinny dipping: HA, no!
-- Dyed your hair: i wish, but no
-- Stolen anything: does abducting fruit and toothpicks from the dining hall count?
// series seven - have you ever
-- Played a game that required removal of clothing?: does playing "dress up" count? you put ON more clothing after you take some off...
-- Been trashed or extremely intoxicated: well, i was anaesthetized a year and a half ago, and that was pretty trippy...
-- Been caught "doing something": what do you mean by "doing something?" does this imply sexual behavior? well, no, not really, though last year my roommate walked in when i was looking at some mighty interesting web sites... *blushes and hides*
-- Been called a tease: yeah hehe... not in a flirty way, i just rip on people a lot (not so much at college, just at home where people are used to it)
-- Gotten beaten up: not really.
-- Shoplifted: when i was 7 i would occasionally steal gum and candy because i was a baaaaad kid
-- If so, did you get caught: no, but once my mom caught me hiding a pack of cards or something and made me go put it back
-- Changed who you were to fit in: not really. i used to want to conform, but i never did. bah, changing yourself for society is a really bad idea. be who you are.
// series eight - the future
-- Age you hope to be married: if i ever do, i want to be at least 25
-- Numbers and Names of Children: if the above ever happens and we decide to reproduce, i really only want one little girl. knowing me i'll probably name her amy because i've always liked that name, but if we have others they'll all have weird names like mephistopheles or ganesha or clitoris or funny names like that
-- Describe your Dream Wedding: if i ever do get married, it will be in the middle of the forest. i'll get laura to make me a green velvet gown, and we'll have a small gathering. if my spouse is wiccan too, we'll have a handfasting with a priest or priestess to marry us (bill and nina are wiccan clergy and can legally perform weddings...). if not, a justice of the peace will do.
-- How do you want to die: originally... like being struck by lightning or laughing to death. something that fits.
-- Where you want to go to college: well i wanted to go to kenyon but i didn't get in, and i would have gone to edinborough, but my dad pressured and bribed me into going to allegheny.
-- What do you want to be when you grow up: i'll never grow up! muhahahahahahaaaaa! when i get OLDER i want to be a published author of young adult and fantasy novels.
-- What country would you most like to visit: india so i can go to a temple of ganesha!
// series nine - opposite sex
-- Best eye color? mmm, green? eye color doesn't really matter, but i like green.
-- Best hair color? doesn't matter either... maybe dark brown and slightly wavy...
-- Short or long hair?: longish, like shoulder-length... mmm i've always liked longish hair on guys...
-- Best height: well... height technically doesn't matter... though it would be nice to be with a short guy so he wouldn't have to kneel to kiss me...
-- Best weight: doesn't matter, just not really skinny. no ribs. fleshy is good. someone with substance.
-- Best articles of clothing: codpiece! *giggle* no, seriously, probably a t-shirt. you can tell a lot about a person from the t-shirts they wear. in that case, i suppose the world sees ME as a psycho who misses church to practice witchcraft and become a lesbian while living in her own little world, among other things.
-- Best first date location: well, it would be really cool to visit a castle in the middle of europe, but realistically probably having a snowball fight :)
-- Best first kiss location: hmmm... i'm going to be traditional and romantic and say on the threshold of my house when nobody else is around. just a 3-second kiss on the lips... and if i like it, maybe the second kiss will be a little more than that. but i've never kissed on the lips (not since 1st grade anyway...), so we'll see about that once i find a worthy mate.
// series ten - number of
-- Number of boyfriends/girlfriends you've had: i'm going to say 1. i considered my friend jon my "boyfriend" when i was 4 or 5, but i doubt it was mutual so i won't count that. in 1st grade i had a little boyfriend, and we'd go under the tire on the playground, pretend we were married, and kiss. in junior high i had an imaginary boyfriend who i "married," but i won't count that either. so just 1, and that was 13 years ago.
-- Number of drugs taken illegally: hehehe well i occasionally snuck pills in high school. we weren't allowed to carry our own medication, but i didn't want to go to the nurse's office, so i'd just head to the water fountain when nobody was around. and then there was that incident where laura secretly gave me midol...
-- Number of people I could trust with my life: at least a dozen, counting overprotective family and friends and very close friends who aren't overprotective but would still do everything to keep me alive...
-- Number of CDs that I own: 50-something, but i really only listen to a few of them regularly
-- Number of piercings: none, but i used to have my ears pierced, and after my surgery i had 10 staples in my belly (talk about freaking kids out with my "belly piercing")
-- Number of tattoos: none yet, but i don't plan to get any until i graduate
-- Number of times my name has appeared in the newspaper: a lot... at least a dozen...
-- Number of scars on my body: too many to count!
-- Number of things in my past that I regret: again a lot... almost everything that happened in 7th and 8th grade, basically...
while i was in the middle of doing the survey, anita IMed me and persuaded me to go watch "the princess bride" with her and a few others. i protested at first, but she talked me into it. so i watched it and had a good time, but if i fail the "paradise lost" quiz on monday it's HER fault! well, right now i'm getting off the computer, and i'm going to finish the whole damn book before i let myself sleep as punishment for being so lazy and submissive. tomorrow i can study for the test and work on the dragon village. i made the child sculpey dragon, and it's so cuuuuuute! it's so little and red, orange, and yellow! i made the basic frames for the 2 adult sculpey dragons, and i'll make them tomorrow. then i'll bake them and work on the foil dragons, which will hopefully be the easiest.
and i'm off like a prom dress!
