Millions of Memes  
Because... um... because eltea just did them all, and now I want to get my eighteen billion cents in.

You are a masochist.

1. If your doctor told you TODAY that you were pregnant, what would you say?

“Back to medical school with you, dipwad!  And by 'medical school,' I mean 'first grade'!"

2. Do you trust all of your friends?

To kill me in my sleep?  Why, yes; they are all serial killers, and that is why we get along so well: common interests.

3. Would you move to another state or country to be with the one you love?

If it was, say, Alaska?  Sure.  If it was, say, Alabama?  "Heyyyyy, honey, why don't we find middle ground in... (consults map of US) SOUTH DAKOTA?  I've heard it's wonderful this time of year..."

Actually, South Dakota doesn't sound all that much better.  I'd probably make the pitch for good old California, but if it really came down to it, I probably would choose TWOO LUV over geographical familiarity.

4. Do you believe that everything that happens happens for a reason?

Yes, and it's called "the coincidence of trillions of invisible actions and factors."

5. Can you make a pound in change right now?

In WEIGHT, maybe.  All those frigging pennies.  FRIGGING PENNIES.  And yet, oddly enough, I was mortified when I saw an article saying people were petitioning to get rid of the penny.  Oh, me and my romantic notions about a highly un-romantic world...

6. Which one of your friends do you think would make the best doctor?

I side with eltea on this one; the one STUDYING TO BE ONE.

7. Are you afraid of falling in love?

More like desperate for someone someday to get around to going, "Hey, I kind of like you, too."

8. How many cars are on your drive?

I HAS NO CAR.  I also has no drive.  I also cannot drive.  I also am going to stop this now.

9. Is there someone who pops into your mind at random times?

Um.  Lots of things randomly remind me of people and/or moments...?

10. What’s your most favourite scar?

I don't have many, or not many that I know whence and wherefore they came, so I'll go with the chicken pox I scratched when I was two, leaving a nice little white mark right on that little dippy thing that bridges nose and lips.  Because... yeah.  Everyone OBVIOUSLY remarks on it, since it's lightning-shaped and in the middle of my forehead.

11. When was the last time you flew in a plane?

Whoa.  Uhh... I'm pretty sure it was two years ago May, on my way back from Washington, D.C.  They played "King Kong," and I decided that he was a Christ figure.  AP English is not good for us, Precious.

12. What did the last text message you sent say and who to?

I can't check, because my (yells in direction of Duddykins) PHONE CONTRACT EXPIRED, but I'm pretty sure it was to my good buddy Desiree asking if she had dinner plans that I could interfere with by leaping into them.  It worked out for me.

13. What features do you find most attractive in the preferred sex?

Noticing my existence?  No, that's a bit too pessimistic.  I love guys with pretty hair.  Or at least hair with personality -- like this guy who was in my English class and discussion group last semester, and is in one of my English classes this one.  Last semester he spent the whole time brushing his hair out of his face, and it was adorable.  Now it is short. :(  Example Two is the guy down the hall, whose facial hair is gradually taking over his ENTIRE VISAGE.

14. Fill in the blank. I love___________

YOUR MOTHER.

And yer mom jokes, if that wasn't self-evident.

15. What is a goal you would like to accomplish in the near future?

It'd be cool if I could figure out how to draw side profiles.  And if I could survive the semester.  Hopefully it won't come down to one or the other; I'm not sure which I'd pick.

16. Do you ever disobey your parents?

Only when the rules they set are EL STUPID-O.  Which is rare enough, fortunately for everyone involved.

17. How many kids do you want to have?

Probably two.  Nice round number.  No ganging up possible.

18. Would you make a good parent?

I think so, seeing as how I've watched my mom do it right and my dad do it wrong.

19. Where was your default picture taken?

Probably on the set of some Jane Austen-y-type movie, since I stole it off of Google Images.

20. What’s your middle name?

Carlsten.  It's my mother's maiden name, if you MUST know.  I kind of like it, actually, because it has a definite ring of Swedishness (Swedishosity?) to it.

21. Honestly, what’s on your mind right now?

"Jesus Christ, the scroll bar is huge to the point of being infinite with all these memes set up here, and speaking of infinite, the universe... isn't quite?, and some Greek guy who was considering that (Democritus?) is one of Professor Marcy's ten dudes who were awesome for astronomy, and..."

Yup, it's always like that.  /CRAZY BRAIN.

22. If you could go back in time and change something, what would it be?

GRANDFATHER PARADOX.

Also, I wouldn't want to change the way things are now.  I like the way things are now, well enough, and always do -- the way I see it, I would not be the person I am at this second unless every second preceding it had gone exactly the way it did.  And with a detached kind of general optimism, I like to believe that everything will work out all right.

23. Who was or will be the maid of honour/ best man at your wedding?

eltea FTW  \o/

Which is good, because she said me, and if that wasn't the case, there would be some awkward silence-y stuff going on here.

24. What are you wearing right now?

Emmm... my darkest pair of jeans, my gray converses, the bright turquoise tank top I bought at Old Navy over the summer much because it matched a pair of earrings I already own, my bloo small jacket, and my trademark beige giant jacket.  And the dragonfly necklace-y bit my cousins gave me for Christmas one year, which was paired with the coincidentally-matching bracelet that eltea bought me once until I started typing and it getted in the way. :(

25. Righty or Lefty?

Righty wighty.  Which I maintain gives me an inherent artistic disadvantage.

26. Best place to eat?

My house.  Where it is warm and nice and the fridge is not too far at all from the couch.  Yesssss.

27. Favourite jeans?

The ones that make me look taller *and* make my butt look nice.  YOU'VE GOT TO THINK ABOUT THESE THINGS.  They were purchased because they were the same brand as another pair of jeans (which are now getting on in years) that my stepmom got me once upon a shopping trip, upon which I was sold the moment she said the aforementioned immortal words, "They make you look taller."

Woman's like five foot nine.  Tierfal's like five foot one.  OBJECT GET: JEANS.

28. Favourite animal?

KITTENS.  Honestly, I don't know how you can hate a kitten.  They're just... so... damn... cute...

29. Favourite juice?

There are these strawberry-kiwi-apple and apple... some other hybrid-ish thing from concentrate that my mom and sister discovered at the grocery store, and... OMG.  OMG OMG OMG.  Basically, I could drink an entire pitcher.  By myself.  In one sitting.  And almost have.

30. Have you had the chicken pox?

I'm one of the last kids born before they started vaccinating, ACTually.  And so, to commemorate the monumental event, my brother picked 'em up at preschool and brought them home to SHARE!

31. Have you had a sore throat?

Once in a blue moon, yes.  Usually in concert with colds.

32. Ever had a bar fight?

If only my life were so eventful.

33. Who knows you the best?

See answer to bridesmaid question, FTW and all.

34. Shoe size?

I will remove my shoe and see.  Women's 6, it says.  And dress shoes I think I tend to buy a bit smaller.  When I inexplicably buy dress shoes, that is.  I'd say I have small feet, but most people my height (or lack thereof) probably do.

35. Do you wear contact lenses or glasses?

Negatory.  My dad def wears both.  Ahahaha.  When we were in Yosemite playing in the motel pool, my dad definitely wore contacts, reading glasses, and sunglasses all at the same time.  Though later Lasik work mitigated the problem somewhat, I saw it.  It HAPPENED.

My mom had to get reading glasses when she got to forty, which will probably be my situation.  She turned to me within the first few days, stared at my face, and then said, "My GOD, you have a lot of freckles."

YEAH THANKS MOM.  APPRECIATE IT.

36. Ever been in a fight with your pet?

Well, when my insufferably stupid cat got into some very small brambles once, I spent an hour in the garage picking BILLIONS of them off of her, and she tried to kill me a few times.

37. Been to Mexico?

I want to say I did when I was like five, but I think I might be lying.  I've been invited a few times; my dad had/has/? a timeshare.  And asked if I wanted to go, you know, the first week of school.

38. Did you buy something today?

Bought me some lunchies not long ago, yes.  Using my MEAL POINTS WHOO.

39. Did you get sick today?

Not just yet, and I pray to the Science Gods that I won't later.

40. Do you miss someone today?

My sanity, prolly.

41. Did you get in a fight with someone today?

YOU.

42. When is the last time you had a massage?

My first (of two) step-mom gave me one once when she was in a massage phase.  It was... overrated.

43. Last person to lay in your bed?

ME.

44. Last person to see you cry?

My roommate, if she was paying attention, though it was mostly suspiciously frequent surreptitious wiping of the eyes, rather than outright crying.

45. Who made you cry?

The stupid school website that I couldn't manipulate.  PIECE OF SHIT.  If my T.A. hadn't been extraordinarily nice, I would have died.  DIED, I say.

46. What was the last TV show you watched?

Um, I think it was the first episode of "Dance War: Bruno VS. Carrie Ann."  WITH DREWBIE!!!!!!

Drew Lachey is so cute.  <3333333

47. What are your plans for the weekend?

To go home and sleep.  SO HAPPY.

48. Who do you think will repost this?

Since eltea's already done it, no one. :D

49. Who was the last person you hung out with?

Desiree at dinner the other day, after the aforementioned text.  XD

54) I have used my sexuality to advance my career.  [LOOK AT MY SEXY SHORTNESS AND GIVE ME AN 'A,' PROFESSOR!]

56) Halloween is awesome because you get free candy.  [Let me rephrase that for you: FREE CANDY.]
57) I watch Spongebob Squarepants and I like it.  [It wasn't bad when I've occasionally seen it... kind of vaguely annoying... so I don't make a habit out of it.]

62) I am comfortable with who I am right now.  [Yay self-confidence!]
63) I have more than just my ears pierced.  [If I ever added to the earlobes, it would be one of those kinda-nifty cartilage ones, but that would just be one more thing I'd have to remember to clean, so... that probably won't happen. XD]

72) I think water rules.  [Though fire is pretty sweet, too.  Just to be equitable.]
73) I went to college out of state.
74) I like sausages. [They're food.  Which is good.  Let's take it logically: food is good; sausages are food; therefore, sausages are good.  It all makes sense.]
75) I love kisses.
76) I fall for the worst people.  [Not THE worst.]
77) I adore bright colors.  [Well, as long as they're not blinding, I don't dislike them.]
78) I can't live without black eyeliner.
80) I usually like covers better than originals.  [Only when they're rock/metal covers of songs that I liked a fair amount even before.  Ex. A: Marilyn Manson's covers of "Personal Jesus" and "Tainted Love."  Ex. B: H.I.M.'s cover of "Wicked Game."  Ex. C: System of a Down's cover of "The Metro."  Songs I cannot live without, these are.]
81) I can pick up things with my toes.  [I should prolly practice.]
82) I can whistle.  [I decided I was going to learn how one day when I was five and my step-dad was.  One of those extraordinarily clear memories where you've got it down to the details.]
83) I can move my tongue in waves, much like a snake's slither.  [......]

89) I have jazz in my blood.  [Well, I DO have heme!]
90) Climbing trees is a brilliant past-time.  [And fences.  Crawling along the tops of fences is amazing.  When you're ten and can manage it, anyway.]
91) I wear a toe ring.
92) I can't stand at LEAST one person that I work with.
93) I am a caffeine junkie.
94) I cosplay or know what cosplaying is.  [I've heard the OH IT'S COSTUME PLAYING ISN'T IT.  LIKE DRESS-UP IN DISGUISE.  Which is ironic.]
95) I have been to over 15 conventions.
96) I will collect anything, and the more nonsensical the better.
97) I am an artist.  [And how.]
98) I only clean my room when necessary.  [<3 unnecessary organization binges.]
99) I like a person of the same sex.  [YOU.  Presumably, anyway.]
100) I love being happy.  [Well, being so depressed that I want to slit my wrists is a rockin' good time, too...]

I do not tag, because tagging it EVULZ.  And reminds me of vandalism, which, while entertaining, is illicit and reprehensible.

3. Ready?  Ready?  Okay: YOUR MOTHER.


eltea hath given me questions five.  Ignore the weird text that I am too damn lazy to fix.

If you are willing to be interviewed (five questions) just comment and say so and I'll come up with five questions just and especially for you. Post your answers, then post the same offer in your own journal.

1. What is your favorite article of clothing that you own?

Uhhh.  Probably the pair of jeans I went on in detail about years ago in the first meme.  Or maybe my Trademark Jacket.  I don't know how I ever lived without it.

2. If you were going to be a model, what company/product would you want to advertise?

Makeup.  Because they could airbrush me, and then I'd be like all *SHINE SHINE SHINE*.


3. If you could go skydiving with magically guaranteed zero risk whatsoever, would you do it?

IN A SECOND.  It'd be sweeeeeet.  Or so I presume, anyway.

4. If, to avoid dire consequences, you had to walk up to somebody and kiss them with no explanation whatsoever, who would you choose?

The guy down the hall.  Whose beard and mustache are staging a coup of his face.  Because (a) I have a crush on him; and (b) he would be able to get over it.

5. If you had to pick one of these heroes to replace and go through their entire quest yourself, which would you rather be? (a) Frodo Baggins (b) Harry Potter (c) Luke Skywalker (d) Neo from The Matrix


I think that, of all of these poor hapless fools, Harry has it easiest, so I'd go with him.  He dies, yes, but in a Jesus sort of way, and not for very long.  Unlike Frodo, he recovers entirely from the ordeals; unlike Luke, he keeps all his limbs; and unlike Neo... he doesn't like... I dunno, I barely remember; the Matrix sequels SUCKED and I wouldn't want to be in them so THERE.

Yeah, so...

ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?

YES. I am happy now. =D

Can I have some questions, pretty please? ^_^
