Another meme, stolen from timberwolfoz.


1. What curse word do you use the most?
Shit; fuck. Somehow I'm under the delusion that it's less rude when I'm cursing in English.

2. Do you own an iPod?
Yes. Best investment in a long while.

3. What person on your flist do you talk to the most?
I'm embarrassingly uncommunicative at the moment. *guilty look*

4. What time is your alarm clock set to?
7.30, I think.

5. Do you still remember the first person you kissed?
NA

6. Do you remember where you were on 9/11/01?
At work. A customer told us about it, and it was hard to believe until I went to an electronics store after work to buy I forget what and saw the pictures on TV there.

7. Would you rather take the picture or be in the picture?
Take the picture. I hate being photographed. OTOH, I also hate taking pictures of people, because I'm notoriously bad at it, so neither, maybe.

8. What was the last movie you watched?
Avatar. *sigh*

9. Do any of your friends have children?
A few.

10. Has anyone ever called you lazy?
Other than me, not that I remember. I am horribly lazy & prone to procrastination, though.

11. Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep?
With a couple of exceptions I never had a problem falling asleep.

12. What cd is currently in your cd player?
I don't have a CD player. If the car counts, one of the Сплин CDs, I think.

13. Do you prefer regular or chocolate milk?
Chocolate. I don't like the taste of milk.

14. Has anyone told you a secret this week?
No.

15. When was the last time you had Starbucks?
Long time.

16. Can you whistle?
Occasionally. No melodies, though.

17. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?
I really have no idea. I think what I first notice in either gender is style/clothes, hair, face; with women, I guess, at least occasionally, cleavage, depending on how it's displayed.

18. What are you looking forward to?
I wish I had something to look forward to. Mostly the future seems extremely bleak and something I'm more anxious about than looking forward to. Spring, I guess. New DW, maybe. New TW, if that is even going to happen.

19. Did you watch cartoons as a child?
Do Biene Maja and the Barbapapas count? That was at my grandmother's; we didn't have a TV for pedagogic reasons.

20. Do you own any band t-shirts?
A few old NIN shirts from ca. The Fragile.

21. What will you be doing in one hour?
No idea.

22. Is anyone in love with you?
Hopefully not.

23. What was the last song you heard?
Something Barrowman.

24. When was the last time you cried?
Friday. I was at work, had period cramps, my arm hurt from something skiing related, I was throwing away cardboard boxes, and the lid of the bin slammed on my hand. It didn't hurt as such, but for a moment I was so absolutely, completely furious that I violently kicked the bin a few times and then burst into tears and stood there crying for a minute.

25. Are you on a desktop computer or a laptop?
Desktop.

26. Are you currently wanting any piercings or tattoos?
No.

27. What’s the weather like?
Disgustingly cold for the first week of March.

28. Would you ever date a girl/guy covered in tattoos?
Why not? Depends on the guy/girl/tattoos, of course.

29. What did you do before this?
Get up, breakfast, write a jl entry.

30. When is the last time you slept on the floor?
Can't remember.

31. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
About eight. I can function on six or less, but not for too long.

32. Do you eat breakfast daily?
I have to. I never used to, or have only a cup of coffee and a couple of rice cakes, but then I had this stomach problem, and now I have to eat something more substantial in the morning.

33. Are your days fast-paced?
Not really.

34. What did you do last night?
Procrastinate on the internet, have a glass of wine.

35. Do you use sarcasm?
I'm on permanent irony mode.

36. How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
38.

37. Are you picky about spelling and grammar?
Admittedly, yes. This said, English still isn't my first language, and I'm probably making mistakes I'm not even aware of; I know I do when it comes to interpunctuation. I always was bad at this in German, and never quite figured out the English rules.

38. Have you ever been to Six Flags?
What? Where?

39. Do you get along better with the same sex or the opposite sex?
I get along with both; it depends on the person. I would get along better with the opposite sex if all the sexual stuff didn't get in the way.

40. Do you like mustard?
Yes.

41. Do you sleep on your side?
Sometimes. Side, stomach, back... depends on my mood.

42. Do you watch the news?
Not really. TV is for entertainment, as far as I'm concerned; I prefer to get the news from print media.

43. How did you get one of your scars?
I don't have anything you could with justification call a scar.

44. Who was the last person to make you mad?
Mostly I'm making myself angry. Aside from that, probably a customer at work.

45. Do you like anybody?
In the general sense, yes of course; I'm a hermit, but not a complete misanthrope; in the romantic sense, no.

46. What is the last thing you purchased?
Groceries.

47. What side of the heart do you draw first?
Right. Not that I randomly go around drawing hearts. I'm not 12.

48. Can you dive without plugging your nose?
I don't really dive. Swim underwater for a few strokes, maybe, which I obviously can do without plugging my noes; but nothing else.

49. What colour is your razor?
Who wants to know this kind of stuff? *mind boggles* I've got an old white/turquoise one, and a newer pink/pearl one.

50. What is your blood-type?
Actually, I don't know. A or B, unless there's something my parents haven't told me.

51. Who would you want to be tied to for 24 hours?
Someone who doesn't talk a lot, or expect me to talk. And doesn't smell.

52. What is a rumor someone has spread about you?
None that I've heard of.

53. How do you feel about carrots?
I prefer them raw.

54. How many chairs at the dining room table?
Haha, dining room. There are two chairs and a couch in the whole flat.

55. Which is the best Spice Girl?
Never cared enough to tell them apart.

56. Do you know what time it is?
Hello, livejournal, internet, computer? 13:21

57. Do you know all the words to the Fresh Prince Theme Song?
No. Not even some.

58. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator?
Press the button, wait. If I have a book/Ipod with me, read/listen to music. Otherwise, think; or not. Talk to other stuck people if it can't be helped.

59. What’s your favourite kind of gum?
Haven't had any in years & years.

60. T or F: All’s fair in love and war?
False, false, and more false.

61. Do you have a crush on anyone?
No. I've finally outgrown the last batch of crushes.

62. Do you know how to use some words correctly, but not know the meaning?
I guess I might do that occasionally.

63. Do you like to sleep?
Yes. Too much, I think. I really do like the feeling of drifting into sleep...

64. Do you know which US states don’t use Daylight Savings Time?
No. It's not actually something that's relevant in my life.

65. Do you know the song Total Eclipse of the Heart?
Child of the 80ies. I used to own Bonnie Tyler tapes.

66. Do you want a bright yellow ‘06 mustang?
Er, no? Should I?

67. What’s something you’ve always wanted?
Difficult. Love, maybe. But I can't cope with it.

68. Do you have hairy LEGS?
This time of the year? Yes. It's cold, I'm not sleeping with anyone, I'm lazy... In summer I do keep them shaved, more or less, although not religiously & daily.

69. Would you rather swim in the ocean or a lake?
Ocean. Lakes are boring.

70. Do you wear a lot of black?
Almost all my shirts are black these days, summer and winter. Trousers and skirts tend to have a little more colour.

71. Describe your hair:
Relatively short, mostly straight with a bit of a natural wave, originally light brown, but I keep it henna'd, so the shade is always somewhere between auburn to copper-ish and brown, depending on the type of henna and state of washed-out-ness.

72. Do you have Entomophobia?
Spiders, wasps, etc. aren't a problem. Worms, centipedes, etc. are.

73. Are you an adult?
Physically, yes; mentally... I wonder.

74. Where is/are your best friend(s)?
There isn't one, at the moment.

75. Do you have a tan?
I'm not sure it's enough to call a tan, but I certainly got a lot of freckles from skiing.

76. Are you a television addict?
Not really. These days, I mostly watch shows on DVD.

77. Do you enjoy spending time with your mother?
Difficult. We never had a very close relationship; not a bad one, just a complete... non-relationship. What makes it so difficult for me is that IMO she wastes so much time and energy on stuff that is completely and utterly irrelevant. I don't really enjoy spending time with either of my parents.

78. Are you a sugar freak?
Sadly, yes. Chocolate, especially.

79. Do you like orange juice?
Yes; but only the kind that at least still has some remote relationship to oranges; the fresher and pulpier, the better.

80. What sign are you?
Gemini

Gemini?! I never would have guessed. You look a more "solid" sign.

If it helps, just barely - May, 22nd. Although OTOH I was a few weeks early... :)

Oh, a "but I want to be Taurus, mom!" Gemini, that explains a lot :P

But, yeah, since I've always gotten along fabulously on first sight with other natives of the sign, Gemini enough for me to feel personally connected to you of all the users who commented on un_crayon_rouge's journal when I first arrived there. =)

Strangely, I've never given a lot of thought to what signs I get along with; maybe because I'm horrible at remembering birthdays. Although at least in real life I seem to be surrounded by Sept. - Jan. birthdays, both family and work... It sort of has crossed my mind that the reason I never really fit in with my family is that I'm the only one who isn't Virgo, Libra or Scorpio.

I only know two Libra and I get along with them in the more "airy" aspects of both signs, but I can see there could be clashing on account of "deeper" aspects.

38. Have you ever been to Six Flags?
What? Where?


It's a North American Amusement Park chain (mostly U.S., although their website says they've got one park each in Canada and Mexico). Mostly roller coasters and rides, although there are animal parks, and musical shows, and other entertainment. I live near one but I've never been; I don't find amusement parks amusing.

64. Do you know which US states don't use Daylight Savings Time?
No. It's not actually something that's relevant in my life.


LOL! I'm pretty sure it's only relevant to folks who live in or travel through those states (I only know one -- Arizona -- and that's because I passed through on a road trip and the clocks were all "wrong").

66. Do you want a bright yellow ‘06 mustang?
Er, no? Should I?


::shudders:: Absolutely not. Now, if we were talking about a cherry-red '66 Mustang.... (My mom actually owned a '66 Mustang just like that one when it was a brand new car. They're still one of my favorite cars ever.)

Thanks for the clarification - I was too lazy too google. *cough*question no. 10*cough* :)

I'm not big on amusement parks either... being afraid of hights is a bit of an obstacle.

And you're right about the yellow Mustang. NO.

::g:: Yep. Then add in claustrophobia in crowds.
