Memes - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003

And the 75-question meme, acquired from angua:

1. What facial feature do you find the most attractive on others? Can't decide between great eyes and lips that look like they're made for kissing. (Hence, my status as a Hayden Christensen fangirl... way yum on both counts.)

2. Would you vote for a woman candidate for president? Umm... if she had a strong platform and one with which I agreed and... is this supposed to be a different question than whether I'd vote for a man?

3. Would you marry for money? Only if it came attached to a really great guy.

4. Have you had braces? Nope.

5. Do you pluck your eyebrows? If there's a loose one that's getting itchy, I guess. (Though I've thought about having them waxed, which seems much quicker.)

6. Do you ever cut or hurt yourself? Ick. No.

7. When was the last time you had a hickey? Never

9. Do you use ICQ, AOL Buddy list etc..? No. I don't like real-time interaction online for the most part, though I'm known on occasion to pop into an Aimoo chat. But only when it's something that's scheduled.

10. If so, how many people are on your list(s)? N/A

11. If you could live in any past time period, which would it be? Camelot. No, I don't mean the Kennedy version, though that might have been cool, too. But only if it were like the stories. I don't want to live in the real past, just the imaginary one.

13. Do you wear shoes in the house or take them off? I can't get my shoes off quickly enough. The botheration of having a hurt foot is that I have to put something on it when I'm bumming around the house.

14. What is your favorite fruit? Pomegranates, when I can get them. The rest of the time, I'd say green grapes.

15. Do you eat wheat bread or white? White.

16. What is your favorite place to visit? Depends on my mood. Someplace with a wide expanse of water to sit by, though I don't swim in natural bodies of water.

17. What is the last movie you saw? I don't see how this is possible, as I love movies, but I think it may have been as far back as Spiderman 2.

18. Do you kiss on the first date? I don't really date. Can't answer, no data available.

19. Are you photogenic? I hope not, because if pictures I've seen of me are any indication, I'm hideous. So, here's hoping it's just the camera.

20. Do you dream in color or black and white? Color.

21. Are you wearing fingernail polish? No.

22. Do you have any dimples? No.

23. Do you remember being born? Not that I'm aware of.

24. Why do you take surveys? Kind of like catching a cold. It's going around.

25. Do you drink alcohol? Probably a bit more than I should at times. And I know better, as it makes me talk politics.

26. Did you like or do you like high school? It's right up there with breaking my heel bone and having my teeth drilled, as fond memories go. Though I had excellent friends.

27. What is the most beautiful language? English. Am I a bad, ethnocentric person because I most love the language I speak? (I also think that Spanish and Italian are pretty, but I just adore the vast ocean of the English language.)

28. When you are asleep do you like being kissed awake? Dunno. I suppose if I have to wake up anyway, kissing would be pretty good. Um, as long as it's a guy I want kissing me who does it.

29. Do you like sunrises or sunsets the most? If sunrise occurred later in the morning, I'm sure I'd like it more. As it is, I'll go for sunset.

30. Do you want to live to be 100? Hell, yeah. I don't like death much, and won't pretend to have high philosophical opinions of it. I'm hoping to live as long as it takes for scientists to figure out immortality. I'll be happy to help them work on the ethical issues. I'm not afraid to die--I just really am not--but I like being alive and don't much like having a deadline (literally) on it. Er, too much info. Just call me Lady Voldemort, I guess...

31. Do you think women should be expected to shave their body hair? Some of it. I also think men should. Pit hair, back hair, and chest hair... not really all that attractive.

32. Do you like salty food or sugary food the most? Depends on my mood. Salty, more often, but sugary when I'm depressed.

33. Is a flat stomach important to you? I'd love to know, for one day in my life, what it's like to have one.

34. Do you or have you played with a ouija board? Sure have.

35. Are you loyal? I still have the same best friends I had when I was twelve, if that counts as loyalty.

36. Are you tolerant of other people's beliefs? I try to be.

37. When you watch movies at home, do you like the lights on or off? Off. I like it as much like a theater as I can get it.

38. Do you believe in magic? I keep an open mind about it. Yes. Yes, I do believe in it. Not necessarily the goofy spells you can find in a library book, but I believe magic is real on some level, as an abstraction.

39. Do you have nightmares frequently? Not really. If I have the jitters, I can't sleep anyway.

40. Do you like your nose? Not especially.

41. Do you like abstract art? Some of it. And some of it, I think is truly horrid.

42. Do you think you can draw well? :sighs: No. It's the one gift I always wished for that I never even had a hint of. I keep on chugging, though.

43. Do you listen to music daily? Yes.

44. Do you like to watch cartoons? Depends on the cartoon.

45. At what age did you find out that Santa Claus wasn't real? Six. A kid in my first grade class spilled the beans to everyone. I'd been doubting for awhile, though, as my babysitter had suggested that a sleigh and reindeer couldn't make the trip.

46. How many pairs of shoes do have in your closet? Maybe eight. I'm not much on the shoes. I find a style I like and stick with it, and when a pair wears out, I replace them with the same style and throw the old ones out.

47. Do you like to wear the same shoes everyday or do you like a variety? See above.

48. Do you write poetry? Yes, but not very well. I mostly use formal poetry like writing calisthenics, forcing myself to repeat a pattern so that I'm thinking really hard about words. Also, I like practicing with metaphor and imagery, but that's because I use them both regularly in prose. (One example is the SW fan poem, Shadows on a Whispered Breath.) Oh, and Sorting Songs.

49. Do you snore? Horrendously, I've been told.

50. Do you sleep more on your back, front, or sides? Toss and turn. I usually fall asleep on my left side, or whichever side is facing the wall where I'm sleeping.

51. Would you rather have a poodle or a rottweiler? I don't like either, though at least poodles are... familiar, I guess. My grandmother used to have a poodle, and he was my first dog. Dumb as grass, but friendly.

52. Do you lick stamps? I buy pre-sticky stamps. Otherwise yes, I lick them.

53. Do you use an electric can opener? Not anymore.

54. Have you ridden in a hot air balloon? No. I know they're the chic thing these days, but I don't find it all that attractive.

55. Which hurts the most, physical or emotional pain? I hate both and won't judge.

56. Do you think balding men should shave their heads? I think it's a rare man (or woman) who should shave his head. But if it's a choice between that and a bad combover, by all means, get the razor.

57. Do you know anyone who is clinically depressed? Oh, yeah.

58. Do you prefer a piano or a violin? I have to choose? I play the piano (a little), but I've always loved the violin kind of mystically, so I'll say the violin here.

59. Are you a sex addict? :No answer except for mad gales of laughter at the concept:

60. Do you know someone who has cancer? Not at present.

61. Do you hunt? No.

62. Do you like fast food joints, or expensive restaurants? Depends on the situation. I like sit-down joints, though not necessarily really pricey ones, but sometimes they just aren't practical.

64. Do you have a middle name? Ellen, after my godmother.

65. Are you basically a happy person? Optimistic, yes. Happy, not so much.

66. Are you tired? No.

67. Did you drink anything with caffeine in it today? Did I drink anything without caffeine in it today?

68. Have you ever met anyone off the internet? Yup.

69. How many phones do you have in your house? Two for me (though I only use one; the other's just a cheapy I put out front so I can hear if it's ringing). My roomie has either two or three more.

70. How long is your hair? Mid-waist, about four inches under my bra-strap.

71. Do you get along with your parents? Never met the father figure, but I get along alright with my mother. And my grandmother, for that matter.

72. What color of eyes do you prefer? I honestly can't say I have a preference. They're all interesting in their own ways. If I had to pick a favorite, I'd say a kind of deep blue (my own are a light blue, and I like them, but I'd like them a little darker, too, I think), but really, I have no eye color loyalties.

73. Are you an active person? Ha-ha-ha-ha...

74. What medications do you take? Lexapro, when I remember it.

75. What does your bedroom look like? Small room with white walls and two windows (on perpendicular walls). Twin bed against the back wall, with red-patterned quilt. Faux brass frame. The windows have dark red curtains, hung asymmetrically, with garlands of fake tea roses on them. My computer is across from my bed, between them is my larger bookcase, the top of which has been rearranged as a dressing table, so I just have to turn my computer chair around to go into grooming mode--saves chair space. The mirror on the wall above it is the cheap one that was always in the guestroom, and it has things stuck on it from everyone who stayed there--a sticker from college, a Muslim prayer from my Indonesian exchange sister (who also reminded herself of daily duties by writing in glitter on the side, "Have you prayed?"), a piece of white tape with the message "Uncle Bill is watching you" from a visit from that gentleman... etc. My dresser and hamper are across from that, and the door to a miniscule closet is beyond that. My TV stuff (and a smaller bookcase) are next to my computer.

Just read your Luna fic - why haven't you pimped that? It's highly amusing and... well, the same level of brilliance that your character pieces always have. Wasn't it eleven years, though?

You're the cutie next door! I always knew!

Where's question #8?
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: October 7th, 2004 05:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
A good question, to which I don't know the answer.

And #12 and #63, for that matter?

(Maybe we should fill them in with three burning questions of our own...)

I swear to God, I could have answered at least 50 of these questions exactly the same way you did. Even most of the physical appearance ones. I mean, my middle name isn't Ellen, but it's frightening how many of these are true for me. I might as well not take it now. Not that I was going to anyway...

I think that what is -really- scary, is that I could have probably answered about half of them (or more) for her. *grins* Though.... she could likely do the same for me :P
fernwithy From: fernwithy Date: October 7th, 2004 08:14 pm (UTC) (Link)
Quite possibly.

(For those who don't know, chienar is one of those cool friends from high school that I mentioned. I don't make a lot of real life friends, but I keep the ones I have.)
