wow, a survey

Normally I do these on myspace only so they are fleeting, but I don't think very many people read them that way. Plus, this one had a lot of opportunity for linkage, which I am too lazy to implement in an html bulletin. Oh, I also feel kinda like ramblin today. And whatever.

1. What was the last thing you ordered from McDonald's?
I haven't been to McD's in many many moons. Jay hasn't even been there (at least while I was with him) since I moved here. But maybe it was some sort of fried potato product. Or a soda.

2. When was the last time you got totally wasted?
I tend to not get *totally* wasted. I had a nice buzz on the other night while hanging with New Neighbor Friends when I discovered I was good at beer pong. (I also had a few vodka drinks pre-beer. Oh, and Jay is also good at beer pong and we were on opposite teams - that's why I was drinking beer.)

3. Do you own a canoe?
I've never even been in a canoe. But I wouldn't mind owning one. I bet it would get a lot of use on those "great lakes" that are not too far from here.

4. What was the last button you pushed?
The enter key. Or a mouse button. Earlier I changed the channel via tv remote.

5. Do you have or want any Piercings?
I have 13 in my ears (total). I used to have my lip pierced, which was cool but inconvenient when I wanted to eat things like sandwiches and apples. However, do to CA's super policy of renewing your driver's license by mail, my ID picture still has a lip ring. I love that. But nothing else is pierced, nor do I want it to be.

6. What do you think about people with tattoos?
I think that some of them are just trying to prove that they are cool by getting some horrible design in a place that doesn't hurt at all. And I think some people go a little overboard, so that even though they have some nice artwork, they have so much that it all runs together. Then there are people like me, who look absolutely stunning with just the right number of beautiful tattoos that continue to draw compliments and photographs from complete strangers.

7. Have you ever been in love?
Yes. Yes I have. I like it very much. You might even say I love it?

8. What are your plans for college?
I'm done with that poop. I did my time at UCDavis, got a very useful degree in Comparative Literature (emphasis on Medieval lit and Latin-American surrealism). I tried to go back and get a PhD, but stupid ivy-league Columbia didn't offer me any financial aid, and then I didn't get accepted to any other programs. So I'm done with that noise.

9. Have you ever had an unusual pet?
I've never had anything exotic. My cat is quite a character, which some people might consider unusual. Then there's the world-famous Midnight.

10. What color is the wall closest to you?
White. Or off-white. I can't really tell. But I have the feeling that every wall in this apartment complex is the same color. I can't wait til I own my own house and can paint things any color I want. (Yes, I know I could do that with the apartment, but then I'd have to paint it back.)

11. Did you enjoy your last kiss?
You know I did. I enjoy every kiss. Kisses are awesome.

12. Have you ever set foot in a tanning salon?
Maybe not. I've certainly never used one - have you seen my pale pale skin? But I don't think I've ever even been inside one for any reason.

13. Would you rather be a genie or a witch?
A witch! I have those wiccan tendencies, and I would like to turn someone into a newt.

14. Have you ever played strip poker?
Yes, but only with someone who had already seen me stripped. Never in a group. I'm not much for poker anyway.

15. What's your mother's favorite color?
I dunno. Probably blue.

16. Fast Food Restaurant or Chinese Takeout?
The only fast food I heart is In N Out or Taco Bell. But I also loves me some hot n sour soup. So that's a tough one. I could get both.

17. If you could move, would you?
Yes. I am enjoying Michigan now that it has stopped snowing, but I don't have a job. I would like to be back in CA. Someday I will. And I'm assuming that Jay will come with.

18.Do you prefer hot tea or iced tea?
Hot tea. For some reason I love one and hate the other. Go fig.

19. What is your favorite musical?
My Fair Lady, duh. It's not just my borderline obsession with Audrey Hepburn, but that certainly helps. I have that on DVD, but I also have the original Broadway recording on cd. Wouldn't I make a great Eliza Doolittle?

20. Have you ever lied about your age?
No reason to. I can't help when I was born, and now I'm old enough to do whatever I want. When I wasn't, I had ways of still doing them.

21. When did you stop believing in Santa Claus?
When my dad played the department store Santa. I wish I had a picture of this. Little kids would cry because I guess they were scared, but I was like "don't cry, it's just my dad" and I was quickly ushered away so I didn't ruin other kids' belief systems.

22. Who was your first crush?
I've had lotsa crushes in my day. Everyone from kids in my kindergarten class to people on tv to rock stars. I have no approp answer for this.

23. What's the wildest thing you've done?
That depends on your point of view. I do that whole tattoo / dyed hair thing, which some people think is pretty wild. I like to have fun, which can get pretty wild. There are some things I won't reveal because of the personal nature of their wildness. Not having inhibitions is fun.

24. Ever blacked out from drinking?
Definitely not. I don't drink that much, but I would remember something like that right?

25. Have you ever faked being drunk?
No reason to. I'll either drink or leave if being drunk is a requirement for hanging out. Maybe both.

26. When is the last time you were on a bicycle?
The day after my bday last year. So, June 15, 2007. I had a pretty bad crash and cracked a rib, among other things, so there may be some psychological scarring from that.

27. What's your dad's favorite color?
I dunno this either. Prob blue still.

28. Do blondes really have more fun?
I assume so. I'm a natural blond, and my hair is blondish right now, and I totally have fun. But it's not a contest.

29. Ever fallen out of love?
Yeah. It happens when you're with someone who isn't meant to be.

30. Have you ever smoked tobacco out of a hookah?
Yes, actually. With the makers of my favorite movie, Wristcutters in NYC. It was better than smoking cigarettes, but not something I'm going to go out of my way to do.

31. Who do you hate the most?
I tend to not hate specific people; more ideas or generalizations. And there are a lot of those.

32. Have you ever donated to charity?
Well, I've done the AIDS Walk for 5 years. This will be my 6th, and I always raise a bunch of money (go donate!). I used to volunteer at an animal shelter. And then there's the occasional change handout or whatever.

33. Ever used a fake id or an id that wasn't you?
Nope. Never had a fake one, and I don't think anyone looks enough like me to trick a bar bouncer or cop.

34. Are you donating your organs?
Sure. I plan on being cremated, so they can take whatever they want first. Then, 2 oz of ash-des will be shot into space, and some more will be sent to make a diamond. I have big plans. I dunno where the rest of me will go.

35. How many people have you had sex with?
Well that is something the internets don't need to know. I will say that there is only one person right now, and he's all I need.

36. Who is the prettiest person you know?
I could go into a rant about how beauty is on the inside and whatever, but bah. I think I'm pretty damn fine looking, but so are a lot of people I know.

37. What is the last thing you ate?
A sandwich, but top ramen is cooking as we speak.

38. What's the last thing you drank?
water. Sweet sweet water.

39. Who has it easier, guys or girls?
Guys. Everything from menstruation and childbirth to earning more money to the genetic level. (It takes an extra step to make an X chromosome - the Y is default.) But girls are awesome and can overcome.

40. Who called you last?
It was going be my dad, but the ticket office just called this second to tell me that the Rev show tomorrow is postponed (read: canceled with no refunds). Drat. I knew it would be because they cancelled the 2 shows before ours.
