Because I'm too tired to write about ______ getting _____ed by _____, <g> yet I still feel the need to post *something* before bed.

Gacked from firehorse:



1. LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN A THEATER??

*looks around nervously*
austinpowersingoldmember

What? My mother wanted to see it.

2. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW??

Er... Book? I was still in the middle of rereading Swordspoint when I lent it to zortified who still, I suspect, hasn't read it... Of course, that was in April....

Actually, current reading projects are CG, so I can see if I can find these characters again, or what, and beta-reading maeyan's anime fic. (See, if I don't say that it's Pokemon, y'all will think it's some hip, slashy fandom like GW...)

3. FAVORITE BOARD GAME?

Outburst is nice... (Snicker in sarabi's general direction) Though I actually like Scrabble better.

4. FAVORITE MAGAZINE?

I used to quite like MODE. Now.. eh. Fashion, even fat fashion, begins to bore. Anything with an interesting article on the cover, I suppose.

5. FAVORITE SMELLS?

Salt and vinegar crisps, wafting out of a just-opened packet. Also, that cold, crisp. *nothing* smell that the freezer smells like, when it's 85 degrees in the house and you stick your head in there just to..um...look around. Yeah, that's it.

6. COMFORT FOOD?

Spaghetti. Tomato soup and grilled cheese.

7. FAVORITE SOUNDS?

Plinky IRC beeps. Gads, I'm hopeless.

8. WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD?

Feeling like *nothing* can make things better -- and even the things you think you like, aren't making you happy. (Sometimes I feel like King Haggard, looking out at an ocean full of unicorns. They don't make me happy anymore, but I can't let them go...) It's not a permanent feeling, thank god.

9. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF WHEN YOU WAKE UP IN THE MORNING?

Ungghh? maeyan, shut your fucking alarm off! (Shouted across the top floor of the house. Because *I* can hear her alarm from one end of the house to the other, through my closed bedroom door, but she can't hear it when she's sleeping on top of it...)

10. FAVORITE FAST FOOD PLACE?

Best food: Long John Silver's. Best food from among the ones that are actually *convenient* to buy/eat: McDonalds

11. FUTURE CHILD'S NAME?

Um. No. I should not have children. Far too selfish, as well as far too screwed up to want to share my insanity with a child. However, should the unlikely occur, Bernice.

12.FINISH THIS STATEMENT, "IF I HAD A LOT OF MONEY, I WOULD...?

Pay off student loans, credit cards, mortgage, maeyan's student loans, Ron's car... How lame am I? Then we look at setting up a few friends and fannish people with permanent writing stipends...

13. DO YOU DRIVE FAST?

Not in my current car! It has a dyspeptic radiator.

14. DO YOU SLEEP WITH A STUFFED ANIMAL?

Yep. Which one varies, though right now it's a very floppy stuffed lamb named Simon. (Who was not Mary-Sued into CG, before you ask. He was named after wee William's lamb.)

15. STORMS-COOL OR SCARY?

Cool, cool, cool. Unless they knock my power out, fry zortified's PC, or turn into tornado weather.

16. WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST CAR?

White '85 Pontiac Sunbird. It got smooshed. Er, I smooshed it.

17. FAVORITE DRINK??

Non-alcoholic: Pepsi, iced tea (with sweet & low, for some reason). Alcoholic: cider or hard lemonade.

18. FINISH THIS STATEMENT, "IF I HAD THE TIME, I WOULD LOVE TO:

I *have* the time. I need the concentration. And the access to my vocabulary, which seems to have dwindled sadly.

19. DO YOU EAT THE STEMS OF BROCCOLI?

yes

20. IF YOU COULD DYE YOUR HAIR ANY COLOR, WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

*Thinks hard...*

21. HOW MANY DIFFERENT CITIES/TOWNS HAVE YOU LIVED IN?

5 where it's been a permanent address. Perhaps two more that were semi-long-term or *could* have become permanent, when I was a child staying with relatives.

22. GLASS HALF EMPTY OR FULL?

Literally? If there's some left at all, it's fuller than it's empty. ;-)

24. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH?

Babysitting.

25. SAY ONE NICE THING ABOUT THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS

Karen is incredibly patient, considering I *still* owe her Buffy tapes...

26. WHAT IS UNDER YOUR BED?

Dust bunnies. No, seriously, that's all. I have a large closet, and hate storing things under the bed.

27. TOILET PAPER/PAPER TOWEL-OVER OR UNDER?

OverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOver
OverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOver
OverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOver
OverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOverOver

And yes, it *is* a big deal, maeyan! ;-)

Look! I'm "gacking" one from you!!

And it doesn't matter which way the TP is set on the spindle as long as:

1. It will spin freely when you hit it

and

2. You aren't anal about it.

*runs like mad to avoid being hit*
