Stolen and Abused...
Blatently stolen from Golfwidow Who as you can see, is clearly THE coolest.
1) Last thing you burned while attempting to cook?
I haven't cooked in SO long... probably some stupid frozen pizza- I'm big on putting 'ten minute' frozen things in the oven and forgetting them for twelve.
2) Describe yourself in three words:
No. I Suck.
3) How long does it take to get ready for your day?
To drive/be useful? 30 minutes max. ...to stagger around like a functional zombie? Less than three. (...Cabin-boy... get... clothes. Urrrrr.... ready... GO now.)
4) Favorite place to blow $50?
Dinner and a Movie? Oh, that's two... The Outback. Cheap, BIG prime ribe slabs... *drool*
5) How many people have you thought were "the one"?
I can't speak for the first couple, but I am fortunate enough to still be WITH the one I think is /The One/... which puts me ahead of many folks I know. (excuse me whilst I smooch my Piratey Partner. *smooch*)
6) What is something that turns you off from the opposite sex?
7) What kind of car do you drive?
A K-car. (The Dodge Aries, to be exact- an older car from the 90's, that was popular among the government folks and other 'officials' for it's frugality and comfort.) It still kicks the asses of most cars, for MPG- around 30.
8) What's in your CD player right now?
The Sims 2. ...oh wait, you mean MUSIC... bwaahahahahaha... I never have 'time' to listen to music, nor inclination to buy CD's. The last thing I listened to was... maybe that Kid's CD made by They Might Be Giants. ...something about balloons or the land of 'no', I think. ;)
9) What celebrity would you have coffee with?
Celebs annoy me, by principle... there's probably some I'd love to chat with, but offhand, I can't think of one. Ironically, I'd be more likely to want to sit down to coffee with my local morning news crew...
10) What celebrity would you NOT have coffee with?
Tom Cruise. (This wouldn't be because he's so much more annoying than anyone else or anything- but because my Mom actually had breakfast with Nicole Kidman... and they talked about rotten ex-husbands... I'd have to have to inform him how he measured up to the men who Were Not My Dad... *chuckle* That's not a compliment, no matter how you take it.)
11) What kind of toothpaste do you use?
Colgate Kid's... Watermelon flavor. Or 'Silly Strawberry' by Tom's toothpastes, which is better- I LOTHE minty toothpastes, as they have so much 'bite'. And those 'BAM' things? Not gunna happen. Ever.
12) What time do you usually go to bed?
Sometime between 12am and 11:59 pm. Your guess would be as good as mine.
13) Last movie you watched?
"See no Evil"... See the Cap'n's review. If you go? Bring a spork.
14) Last TV show you watched?
Currently the morning news, of course- but, recently? Last night: 'Nocturnal Emissions' and 'X-play' on G4... it's SO wrong. But it gives me reviews of video games I'll never buy, and makes me say "Uhhh... Yah." often.
15) Who is your best friend?
I'm lucky. My Best Friend is The Cap'n, who is also my forever-mate. :) yay!
16) With whom in your family do you best get along?
Oh, my Mom, hands-down. I dunno why that is, but It always has been... she's fair and open and gentle... and she never let me get away with shit. For all the other issues in my life, I still got along with MOM the best. :)
17) Whom do you have a crush on?
No crushes. :) sowwy.
18) What time is it right now?
Around 7am. (are you TIMING this? hey. stop that.)
19) Are you planning a vacation/travel?
I *WAS*... but we won't be seeing Disneyland this year, or anytime soon, I suspect! All this horsie-ness (and expensive) and stuff, of course. ;)
20) When/Where was the last time you traveled?
See above...(There was much traveling, if not *far*, involved in buying an ex-racehorse... but it was a ride and a half all the way around!)
21) How many times have you been in love?
I'm IN love. Yay! (insert floaty hearts here)
22) How old will you be in ten years?
48. Yep. Ten years older.
23) Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Mucking stalls, and playing with mud. (Who knew, the older you got, the more you'd resemble your younger years...)
24) Sinful snacking weakness?
Slurpee/Icee's...(trembles like a junkie) Must... have... cola... icee-frozen-thingy...
25) Roller Coasters?
Only if you want to see a grown man BARF. (or- only if they're small and cute, and I have anti-nausea medicine on board already. ;) heh.) I love RC's... but... no.
26) Ever run out of gas?
In bed or on the road? (go ahead, choke on your own spit. I don't mind...)
27) Ever been on a train?
The most FANTASTIC vacation I EVER had ended with a long train ride home... two days of BLISS with my otherhalf... I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
28) Ever been on a blind date?
I can't imagine I have- if I did, that's how UN-memorable it was.
29) Ever been to Europe?
Does the 1980's rebuild of 'Mr. Toad's Wild Ride' count?
30) What would you do if you could be the opposite sex for one day?
Take pictures of myself, post them on My Space with the implication that I'll put out for anyone who 'listens'- then ask everyone I meet there for money and gifts, and once I have them, or they don't put 'out' enough cash/gifts- lock them out of my blog/page/email and forget they exist. (As clearly this is what a large portion of the 'other sex' do with their online time... I lothe the ones who get away with it.)
31) Would you tell anyone it was really you?
Hell no. Half those 'other sex' people are probably really men anyway. ...and secretly, I'd hate myself for having done so, even for one whole day. *le sigh*
32) Ever been under arrest?
Believe it or not, Yes. ONCE.
33) Have a crush on anyone you work with?
No crushes currently. Sowwy!
34) What is something you believe in?
I HONESTLY believe that no matter which spiritual path is the most 'correct', the ONE universal truth is that people who are DICKS to one another are not as well off when their time comes, as those who are NOT.
35) What is something you fear?
That people are REALLY as stupid as they seem.
36) Big or small?
HUGE! Immense! INCREDIBLE in it's EPIC proporitions!! ...oh wait. You mean... oh. *sigh* nevermind.
37) What is the worst physical pain you have ever experienced?
Those last few hours between my first surgery, and when they realized my life was in danger- (and gave me TONS of Morphine as they were prepping to save it.) I love drugs in the ER... now THAT was lifesaving. ;)
38) What is your favorite television show?
I may have the TV on a lot, but I don't /watch/ it all that often. Cops, mostly Court TV shows about real-life crimes, Modern Marvels or other 'Discovery' type programs, Animal Planet shows about real life zoos, animal control, etc... I like to view parts of life that are sometimes bad and often good in ways people don't expect. :) It renews my faith that humans don't ALL suck.
39) Ever photo-shopped yourself to look better in a picture?
I would, if someone would send me a copy of Photoshop.... *waggles brows*
40) Tell us something about your childhood:
I used to ride cows. Yep. That's right. Cattle. I wanted to prove that you COULD... I like cows, and they're just as easy to 'ride' as a Horse. Just not so... uh... Glamourous. This got me an immediate 'in' with the local cowboys and ranchers, and got me tons of work with horses and cattle later on in life. :)
41) What would it cost you to flash the person next to you?
I'm pretty sure they'd pay me NOT to...
42) Best time to catch you in a good mood?
While I'm online with my other half... we often share fun websites, debate stuff we see, or even play online together. Even playing The Sims 2 right next to one another is going to find me in a good mood... I adore him. I adore being NEAR him. It makes me happy.
43) If you could be anything for one day, what would it be?
Rich As HELL. ...no, not because I crave being rich, but because I'd spend all KINDS of Money to do all KINDS of things I could never do in a zillion years otherwise. From building a 'model' prison, to donating money to causes that get ignored daily... I'd spend ten or twenty times the national debt, easily.
44) Most prized possession?
I'm not big on posessions... but I'd say probably... hmmm... my Teddy Bear. He's the same one I have had since I was old enough to toddle around holding him by one ear, and I feel lucky to still have him.
45) Would you ever sell it/how much?
Pfft. As if. ...who'd want to buy my ol'worn out, almost furless, repaired-a-zillion times Teddy Bear for a zillion bucks? ...He'd be lonely in a Museum, but maybe if he had company... it wouldn't be a matter of just MONEY doncha know. hrmf. *grins*
46) What is one of your pet peeves?
People who are just... MEAN. Or Selfish to the POINT of acting MEAN. I don't see any reason, EVER, to be /MEAN/... it's just... uncalled for. It's one thing to be angry or self-centered... but true viciousness is NEVER excused.
47) Favorite kind of ice cream?
The 31-flavors "Watermelon" ice, HANDS DOWN... it comes with stupid candy 'seeds' and an OBSCENELY bright red and green colour scheme (which in truth, would be far yummier if it was a pale daquiri-ice-like pastel, but...)... it's just SO YUMMY. I would happily eat a whole commercial container of it. Buy me one, and I'd love you for life.
48) What song are you listening to right now?
None. See #8 above... ;)
49) If you could sucker punch one person, whom would it be?
Only one person, for one reason, just ONCE... refer to #32 above. They arrested me because she said I did, They let me go because I clearly didn't... but after that happened, I secretly wished I had. (insert embarassed expression here.)
50) Would you like to tell us one of your secrets?
I don't think I have a secret I haven't already posted at some time or another on here... hum... If I had one... I probably wouldn't post it here NOW.
And: The Bonus question ganked from Musing on Movies, before I stole it from a href="http://www.diarytown.com/golfwidow/archives/008963.html">Golfwidow:
51) How do you feel about nudity in films? Does the potential nudity content affect whether or not you will see a movie? Have you ever seen a movie that you would have liked better if it had less nudity in it?
Nudity doesn't bother me even in the slightest. Face-Sucking does. The more Face-sucking going on in a movie, the less chance I will even sit through it. There is a certain level of smoochy-cuteness I like, but face-sucking is RIGHT OUT... If I wanted to watch soft porn, I'd buy some. GET. A. Room. ...not a movie camera.
I feel so old- I envision myself, sitting in a Movie Theatre, twenty or thirty years from now- cupping my hands and yelling at the screen, "BOOOOOOOoooo! BOOOOOOOOO!!! Get A ROOM! GET. A. ROOM!!!" and complaining to the ticket office afterwards, that I was revolted and disgusted, and making them give me my money back... or a free ticket so I can see a movie with the same amount of face-suckage, but have forgotton by then that I'll start the whole thing over again when I see it....
Listening to: The Morning News.
