Meme-ly Goodness  
Meme stolen from captjackspeanut, because my brain blew up and is therefore precluding any semblance of original thought.  Which is a problem.  Yeah.

Afternoons are not kind to me; I get tired, and then... DEATH.

I need to start getting to bed earlier.  Cripes.

Q. What is your wallpaper on your computer?
A Photoshop collage I made that reads "Fictional Guys Make Life Worthwhile," and which displays images of Frodo, Howl, Westley, Lupin, Sirius, Jack Driscoll (from King Kong!), and Rhett Butler.  Yeeeeup.

Q. How many televisions do you have in your house?
Well, in my MOM'S house, we have two. x)

Q. Are you right-handed or left-handed?
I'm a righty.  I maintain that I am at a distinct artistic disadvantage because of it.  Even though I think that whole left hand-right brain thing was disproved.

Q. Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
My wisdom teeth, over the summer.  MY POOR BABIES...!  And eyeteeth before that, so that the permanent ones would come in straight, rather than performing an epic fail in my mouth and destroying the world as we know it.

Q. What is the last heavy item you lifted?
My face off of the pillow this morning.  GAWD EIGHT IS SO EARLY.

Q. Have you ever been knocked out?
Hahaha, no.  I'm not quite that hardcore.

Q. If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
I never really know what to say to this question... I think I would definitely hurry my ass up if I knew, but I also like pretending that that day will never come.

Q. If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
I like my name the way it is.  Even though, as I was discussing with my mom in the car yesterday, I've always been sad that my initials don't spell anything.

Q. What color do you think looks best on you?
Uh.  Not any bright pink.  Or red.  They wash me out like nobody's business.  Other than that, it doesn't seem to make too terribly much of a difference...

Q. Have you ever swallowed a non-food item?
I ate dirt on at least one occasion as a child.  And I've inadvertently consumed tinfoil before.

Q. Would you kiss a member of the same sex for $100?
If I got to pick who.  (Psst, eltea -- wanna make fifty bucks?)

Q. Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for $200,000?
Hell no.  I'm going to need those.

Q. Would you never blog again for $50,000?
I'd end up spending the fifty grand on counseling, so I think I'd pass.  This doesn't require me to drive to some therapist's place.

Q. Would you pose naked in a magazine for $250,000?
Which magazine?  How big an audience are we talking?  Would I get time to diet first? :D  And would it be tasteful, or... otherwise?
Q. Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
If I was able to drink it at my leisure, over the course of a few hours or something.  And if I had milk to soothe my destroyed taste buds afterwards.  It would also depend on what kind of hot sauce, and how big the bottle was. XD

Q. Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for $1,000,000?
You can't put a price on the life of a human being.  It's just not possible.

Q: What is in your left pocket?
Lint.  Yeah.  That's about it.

Q: Is Napoleon Dynamite actually a good movie?
I liked it okay the first time, then saw it again later and didn't find it so... interesting?  It's mostly just kind of pointless...

Q: Do you have hardwood or carpet in your house?
Depends on the room, natch!

Q: Do you sit or stand in the shower?
People sit in showers?  What strange culture originated this technique?  Do they have little chairs or something?

Q: How many pairs of flip flops do you own?
Two, one from WalMart, permanently coated in mud from some creek in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, in which they were repeatedly submerged; and the other bedecked with an American flag motif, purchased for eighty-nine cents at Old Navy a month after the Fourth of July. :D

Q: Last person who texted you?
My friend Desiree, asking if I wanted to go to dinner.  This was like two minutes ago.  I'm so damn popular I scare myself.  And by "popular," I mean "possessed of like five friends."

Q: Last person who called you?
Apparently my stepdad last Friday, though I've called eltea twice since then. XD

Q: Person you hugged?
My mommy after she helped me wrangle all my stuff out of the trunk of the car yesterday. ^_^

Q: Favorite number?
Six, because I decided at a young age that I should have one, and I liked the way it looked.

Q: Season?
Winter.  I hate warm weather.  Hate it.

Q: Color?
Blue FTW!

Q: Missing someone?
My darling baby lesbian lover best friend eltea, of course!  ...did anybody NOT see that coming?  ...anybody?  ...Bueller?

Q: Mood?
I was pretty blah, but now, after having to come up with snarky and/or interesting meme answers, as I always feel is my sworn duty, a little better. :D

Q: Listening to?
Fine Young Cannibals, "She Drives Me Crazy," at the moment, though it was Enter the Haggis a minute ago.

Q: Watching?
My computer screen registering the keys I'm hitting! :D

Q: Worrying about?
The three papers due next week... And then the four finals after those...

Q: Wearing?
Jeans and a black T-shirt I once used to play Neo in a Matrix spoof, which was acquired from Goodwill and then became part of my wardrobe... And a plaid shirt I once stole from my brother, which was similarly assimilated. :D

Q: First place you went this morning?
Off to the Land of Awkward, also known as the Co-Ed Bathroom of DOOOOM.

Q: What can you not wait to do?
Umm... get some of that kickass cereal they have at the dining commons?  I dunno.  Talk to eltea online again once she comes back from rehearsal? :D  DO SOME HOMEWORK FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE???  ...no.  Never that.

Q: Do you smile often?
Define "often."  It utterly depends.  Much on who I'm with.

Q: Are you a friendly person?
I try to be, though I seem to have antisocial tendencies.  Er, "introverted."  Ha.  Ha.  Ha.  Yes.  Introverted.  Really though, I think I'm friendly enough, but I don't really start conversations.  If other people talk to me first, I think I'm personable enough. ^_^;;

OMG! That was so funny. Thank you for enlightening my life with these facts that I shall cherish till I die.

Honestly, your post was better than mine *pouts*

I'm glad it could make you feel slightly better.

Love whats on your desktop FTW! Rhett Butler is hot!

Now I have to go back to reading about the 60's and junk. I just got done reading a whole chapter about the going ons at Berkley! lol. *wink wink*

Okay...I'm done now...I'll leave you in peace.

Aw, shucks. ^_^;;

Rhett Butler definitely made me swoon when I read the book at age fourteen. I swooned like CRAZY. :D

Berkeley is a weird, weird place. :P We have a restaurant on campus called the "Free Speech Movement Cafe," to commemorate or whatever. I'm like, "...?"

That's too funny. I still have an essay to write that talks about the student protests...I am so sick of writing about the same history over and over again in the course of a week.
I would eat there just to say I have...and because I am weird like that. XD

I’ll definitely be stealing this once I get a chance. =D

WONDERING HOW I’M ONLINE, AREN’T YOU? ;) Apparently Loose Hall has a linksys network now! =O Unfortunately, dunno if I’ll really get much of a chance to be on, but I can text you if I get a block of time or something. XD

As to the meme… =D

Eight a.m.… is MADNESS. *glances around nervously, making sure nobody is about to kick her into a pit*

I would kiss you for twenty bucks, just because I love you that much. ^_^

Matrix spoof FTW! \o/

And you are friendly. :)

We could just kiss a bunch of times and then spend the money on cool stuff. :D


I am friendly... to people I want to EAT. >:E
