(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)
|× I miss somebody right now.||× I don't watch much TV these days. (Sometimes i watch a lot, sometimes very little. It depends on what i want to watch. I don't really think of TV as a kind of drug whose usage must be monitored weekly.)||✓ I own lots of books. (Quite a few.)|
|✓ I wear glasses or contact lenses. (Glasses. But i often don't wear them.)||✓ I love to play video games. (Definitely.)||× I've tried marijuana. (No. If i ever did, it wouldn't be in smoking-form.)|
|✓ I've watched porn movies. (They really aren't very sexy. Except for, you know, having naked people. But that's like cheating. Porn directors must have the most boring sexual fantasies.)||× I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship.||× I believe honesty is usually the best policy. (Noooo way. Maybe in a magical fantasy land where everybody in the world was perfectly reasonable, sane and unprejudiced.)|
|✓ I curse sometimes. (hehehe.)||✓ I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. (Largely for the worse. With a breif burst for the better.)||× I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.|
|× I have broken someone's bones. (No, but i chipped someones tooth. Accidentally.)||✓ I have a secret that I am ashamed to reveal. (I... revealed it below. See the dungeons and dragons question.)||× I hate the rain. (I LOVE THE RAIN. I love it so much.)|
|✓ I'm paranoid at times. (Yessssss. Mostly in social situations. But i don't let it get to me.)||✓ I would get plastic surgery if it were 100% safe, free of cost, and scar-free. (Why yes, I would LOVE to be a shape-shifter. You could just change into whatever you wanted, and change back when you got bored. I'd spend most of my time as me, still, though.)||✓ I need/want money right now. (Me bad want money now. Me sick.)|
|✓ I love sushi. (With avocado and soy sauce.)||× I talk really, really fast.||× I have fresh breath in the morning.|
|× I have long hair. (Not *really* long. But i fluctuate.)||× I have lost money in Las Vegas.||✓ I have at least one sibling. (I have two. And a cat.)|
|✓ I was born in a country outside of the U.S. (Australia.)||× I have worn fake hair/fingernails/eyelashes in the past.||✓ I couldn't survive without Caller I.D. (...on my mobile. I actually have more than one phone number listed in my mobile as "DO NOT ANSWER ME", or variations thereof.)|
|✓ I like the way that I look. (Sometimes.)||× I have lied to a good friend in the last 6 months. (I don't think so.)||✓ I am usually pessimistic. (I guess that's my problem at the moment.)|
|✓ I have a lot of mood swings. (They swing into depression lately, and they lasssst.)||× I think prostitution should be legalized. (I am unsure. Maybe not in the current climate. (Maybe all jobs should be illegal as long as the Liberal Party is in power.) No job should be legal unless there is some assurance that those doing it are being treated properly and have a decent amount of autonomy over their life.)||× I slept with a roommate.|
|× I have a hidden talent.||× I'm always hyper no matter how much sugar I have. (I WISH. I love being around people who are hyper. Examples may include members of my friends-list, eg// kathryne_deanna, shehasathree, others who keep apologising for hyperactivity/babbling when they really have nothing to worry about because it's cool...)||✓ I have a lot of friends. (I guess so.)|
|✓ I have pecked someone of the same sex. (Yes, but it was just an unsatisfyingly rigid peck during a party game. (Not rigid in the good way.))||✓ I enjoy talking on the phone. (Sometimes.)||× I practically live in sweatpants or PJ pants.|
|✓ I love to shop and/or window shop. (Um, only with good stuff. No clothes.)||× I'm obsessed with my Xanga or Livejournal. (Not obsessed enough.)||× I'm completely embarrassed to be seen with my mother.|
|✓ I have a mobile phone. (It's a Samsung E310, and i do not recommend it at all. Looks nice, but is very poorly designed. I really don't know what its programmers were thinking when they came up with it. Don't get one.)||× I have passed out drunk in the past 6 months. (I've never been drunk.)||✓ I've rejected someone before. (Two or three times, i'm not sure. On each occasion the other person was drunk.
Once i resisted somebody i found VERY attractive because they were drunk and i didn't want to be someone's REGRET. I seriously wish i'd said something to indicate that it was the situation, and not the person herself, that i was rejecting.)
|✓ I currently like/love someone. (I am very good at liking/loving people.)||✓ I have no idea what I want to do for the rest of my life. (I kind of do. But i don't know how to get there.)|| × I want to have children in the future. (Sometimes, sometimes not. I could only bring myself to have adopted children, for three reasons;
*The world is overpopulated, and Australia is right on the egde of overpopulating (despite what certain prime ministers reckon), and there are a large number of parent-less children in the world that NEED to be taken in by SOMEONE,
*I'm not comfortable with the idea of getting the person i love pregnant,
*I never, ever, ever want to have to live with a smelly, screamy, messy baby.)
|× I have changed a diaper before. (And i never will.)||× I've called the cops on a friend before.||× I'm not allergic to anything. (I get hayfever.)|
|✓ I have a lot to learn. (Need sanity.)||× I am shy around the opposite sex. (No. I am shy around PEOPLE. I don't consider the opposite sex to be alien beings of any sort.)||× I'm online 24/7, even as an away message.|
|× I have at least 5 away messages saved. (I... don't know what this means.)||✓ I have tried alcohol or drugs before. (Hehehe. This question is really kind of cute.)|| × I have made a move on a friend's significant other or crush in the past. (Maybe on a friend's crush. They were my crush too. I don't beleive in treating crushes as objectified toys to be passed from friend to friend, so i feel no guilt over this.
Besides, the person in question was probably the crush of half the people at school.)
|× I own the "South Park" movie. (No, but it does rock.)||× I have avoided assignments at work/school to be on Xanga or Livejournal.||× I enjoy some country music.|
|✓ I would die for my best friends. (Possibly yes.)||× I'm obsessive, and often a perfectionist.||× I have used my sexuality to advance my career.|
| × I think Halloween is awesome because you get free candy. (No, i think it's awesome because you get a chance to celebrate the bizarre/forbidden/twisted, and you can openly turn things on their head.
Plus i have wonderful memories of an awesome moonlit Halloween make-out session.)
|× I have dated a close friend's ex.||✓ I am happy at this moment.|
|✓ I'm obsessed with guys. (Not so much guys-in-general.
But Logan Echols is dreamy.)
|✓ Democrat. (Actually, Australian Greens party all the way.
I want a Democrat-Greens-Independants Majority unoffocially led by Bob Brown from the Senate, with the Labor party as the right-wing opposition, and a rotating Prime Minister-ship, and Cabinet members who actually comprehend their portfolios. Hey, it's completely constitutional (possibly moreso than the current party system), so it's not impossible...)
|× Republican. (I am fairly sure i'm opposed to almost everything they stand for (as an environmentalist pro-choice pro-queer anti-blind-free-marketism pro-union pro-welfare pro-SOCAS anti-nationalist pro-human-rights pro-Taxing-the-Rich anti-Bush-er)... but its a matter of interpreting what they stand for, i guess.)|
|✓ I don't even know what I am.||✓ I am punk rockish.||× I go for older guys/girls, not younger. (I go for both.)|
|✓ I study for tests most of the time. (I looove tests. Tests i can do.)||× I tie my shoelaces differently from anyone I've ever met.||× I can work on a car. (I can hit my starter motor with the steering lock whilst someone else turns the keys for me. Thats probably the most technical car thing i can do.)|
| × I love my job(s). (I am unsure. I'm just starting. But it may turn out to be pretty good (better than Target).
I loved my pizza delivery job (that lasted about a week before i found his one). If only you could make enough to live off it.)
|× I am comfortable with who I am right now. (Definitely not. Need less pain.)||× I have more than just my ears pierced.|
|× I walk barefoot wherever I can. (Not "whenever i can", but it can feel very good. So can wearing sneakers.)||× I have jumped off a bridge.||✓ I love sea turtles.|
|× I spend ridiculous amounts of money on makeup. (No.)||✓ I plan on achieving a major goal/dream. (I will do something related to science for a career.)||× I am proficient on a musical instrument.|
|× I hate office jobs. (I don't think they look that bad, i like the idea of havings ones own little space. But i hear horror stories.)||× I went to college out of state.||× I am adopted.|
|✓ I am a pyro. (Not really.)||✓ I have thrown up from crying too much. (I've been close to there in the past. Mostly as a kid, i think. I have had more recent dry-retching experiences. It's exquisitely awful.)||✓ I have been intentionally hurt by people that I loved. (I'm sure i have. Most likely in high school.)|
| × I fall for the worst people. (I fall for the best people.
I have INCREDIBLY good taste, seriously.)
|× I adore bright colours. (Kind of. I prefer sharp blacks and stuff like that.)||× I usually like covers better than originals.|
|× I hate chain theme restaurants like Applebees and TGIFridays.||✓ I can pick up things with my toes.||✓ I can't whistle. (kathryne_deanna laughs at me when i try. :( )|
|✓ I have ridden/owned a horse. (I have ridden a horse, once. It made Anne McAffrey books make a lot more sense.)||✓ I still have every journal I've ever written in. (I am happy with my user name.)||× I talk in my sleep.|
|✓ I've often thought that I was born in the wrong century. (Yes. But i wouldn't want to live in any other.
Seriously, we in first-world countries live pretty much in the way that only gods could live in the past.)
|× I try to forget things by drowning them out with loads of distractions. (Hey, that's a good idea.)||× I wear a toe ring.|
|× I have a tattoo.||✓ I can't stand at LEAST one person that I work with. (I can see it developing.)||× I am a caffeine junkie.|
|✓ I am completely tree-huggy spiritual, and I'm not ashamed at all. (That really depends on your definitions and prejudices. I don't think people would describe me that way, but i think i probably would.)||× If I knew I would get away with it, I would commit at least one murder. (I was going to say "No!", but... no. I'll say "no".)||× I will collect anything, and the more nonsensical, the better.|
|× I enjoy a nice glass of wine with dinner.||✓ I'm an artist. (I write. I am teaching myself to photoshop.)||× I am ambidextrous.|
|× I sleep with so many stuffed animals, I can hardly fit on my bed.||× If it weren't for having to see other people naked, I'd live in a nudist colony. (Seeing other people naked would be part of the fun. But clothes can accentuate hotness as well. And clothing seems more personalisable most of the time. And comfortable. So no.)||× I have terrible teeth.|
|× I hate my toes.||✓ I did this meme even though I wasn't tagged by the person who took it before me. (I love quizzes! I don'tlike those depersonalised memes so much. This is the perfect meme. I get to tick boxes AND crap on about myself.)||× I have more friends on the internet than in real life.|
|× I have lived in either three different states or countries. (I have only lived in two different countries for more than a couple of weeks. Australia, and Canada for a year, Italy for a week or two, the Northern Territory in a high school trip, other places just on 'holiday'.)||× I am extremely flexible. (Not as much as i want to be.)||× I love hugs more than kisses.|
|✓ I want to own my own business. (We would install solar panels, perform palaeontological research (and have a museum open to the public), and have lots of orgiastic hippie parties.)||× I smoke. (I can quite safely say that i will never willingly smoke. Even some drugs are a "maybe one day", but i don't see how cigerrette companies make any money at all. It's gotta be the worst product in the world.)||× I spend way too much time on the computer than on anything else.|
|✓ Nobody has ever said I'm normal. (I think thats true.)||✓ Sad movies, games, and the like can cause a trickle of tears every now and then. (Maybe sometimes.)||× I am proficient in the use of many types of firearms and combat weapons.|
|✓ I like the way women look in stylized men's suits. (Sometimes. It really depends on the person and the suit and what mood i'm in and wether Venus is rising and what number i roll on the dice.)|| × I don't like it when people are unpleased or seem unpleased with me. (Mostly i like it. It removes my urge to be polite. Have always had this impulse to do the opposite of whatever will make me popular. I try to limit it to doing things i actually agree with.
I don't like it as much when i agree with the person i've upset, though, and i've actually done something very wrong.)
|✓ I have been described as a dreamer or likely to have my head up in the clouds. ("Daydream David", Grade 3 nickname. Not nearly as complimentary as it sounds.)|
|× I have played strip poker with someone else before.||✓ I have had emotional problems for which I have sought professional help.||× I believe in ghosts and the paranormal. (Sometimes in some ways. Not really. I'm a "weak" atheist, which is like a logical positivist. (Some people would call that an agnostic, but i see a big difference).)|
|× I can't stand being alone. (Sometimes i love it. I have trouble with it recently. I don't like that.)||✓ I have at least one obsession at any given time. (I have MANY.)||× I weigh myself, pee/poo, and then weigh myself again. (No, but i really want to know someone who does this.)|
|× I consistently spend way too much money on obsessions-of-the-moment.||✓ I'm a judgmental asshole. (Anyone here a Scientologist/Mormon/Devout Pope-loving Catholic/Liberal (Liberal=Conservative, for those in the US) Party voter?)||× I'm a HUGE drama-queen. (I catastrophise sometimes, but not in a melodramatic Marrissa-from-the-O.C. way.)|
|✓ I have travelled on more than one continent. (Australia, Eurasia, North America, the Hawaiin Islands.)||× I sometimes wish my father would just disappear. (Never.)||× I need people to tell me I'm good at something in order to feel that I am.|
|× I am a Libertarian. (I don't think this would make much sense outside of the US.)||× I can speak more than one language. (No. I've done French, Italian and Indonesian, and been introduced to Japanese and German and Russian, and never really taken the opportunity to learn any of them with any degree of fluency.)||× I can fall asleep even if the whole room is as noisy as it can be.|
| × I would rather read than watch TV. (Not nessecarily. Both are good, depending on whats on TV/what books you have.
Veronica Mars beats the living crap out of Henry James, for example, whilst "The Years of Rice and Salt" squooshes Big Brother into the dirt. I watch/read things for their content, not for their medium.)
|× I like reading fact more than fiction. (See the answer to the TV question.)||× I have pulled an all-nighter on an assignment I was given a month to do.|
|✓ I have no piercings.||× I have spent the night in a train station or other public place. (Unfortunately not. Not yet.)||× I have been so upset over my physical gender that I cried.|
|× I once spent Christmas completely alone because there was a miscommunication on which parent was supposed to have me that night. Wow, is this ever a livejournal quiz...||× There have been times when I have wondered "Why was I born?" and may/may not have cried over it. (I don't think so.)||× I like most animals better than most people. (Hmm, i could go either way on this one.)|
|✓ I own a collection of retro games consoles. (Only one, part-owned Nintendo64, with kathryne_deanna)||× The thought of physical exercise makes me shiver.||✓ I have hit someone with a dead fish. (Only online.)|
|✓ I am compulsively honest. (Sometimes.)||× I was born with a congenital birth defect that has never been repaired.||× I have danced topless in front of dozens of complete strangers.|
|✓ I have gone from wishing I was a girl to revelling in being a boy to feeling like a girl again in the span of five minutes, and not cared a whit for my actual sex. (No comment.)||✓ I am unashamedly bisexual, and have different motivations for my desires for different genders. (Yes. I'm attracted to people of both genders, and I'd definitely say i am OBSESSED with girls, but am less likely to say the same about boys (unless you mention specific boys). This may be largely a cultural thing, because i have come to associate hotness more with girls, even though i find some guys just as appealing as most girls/some girls just as unappealing as most guys. I think i used to say "i'm attracted to 40% of girls and 5% of guys". But i don't identify with the term "straight", except as a flag-of-convenience.
UNASHAMEDLY!!!! The waffling is due to pedanticness, not shame. :P)
|✓ I sometimes won't sleep a whole night or eat a whole day because I forget to. (I've done these things in the past. I'm not sure if i could in my current state of mind.)|
|× I find it impossible to get to sleep without some kind of music on. (I think i would *like* to be this person, but it could get annoying.)||× I dislike milk. (I LOVE MILK.)||× I obsessively wash my hands. (I am CLEANLY, if thats what you mean!)|
|✓ I always carry something significant around with me. (But it varies. I used to haul around a suitcase containing all my diaries whenever i stayed over anywhere, in case my house burnt down while i was away.
Now i occasionally wear a Hel necklace for emotional/spiritual support, or to let my ideas/personality/loves be visible, or to feel secure in my identity, or just because i like it.
I also have a set of buttons from http://www.mushycat.com/ , which serve the same role.)
|× Sometimes I'd rather wear a wig in day-to-day life than use my own hair.||× I've pushed myself to become more self-aware and thereby more aware of others. (In the past i've pushed myself to become more aware of others. It worked FAR too well. I ended up letting my actual beleifs and thoughts go unsaid, and found myself nodding along to some of the stupidest social conventions just to not-seem-challenging. The last few years i've been pushing myself to be more self-aware.)|
|× Even though I live on my own I still cry sometimes because I miss my mother.||× I hand wrote all the HTML tags in this document.||✓ I've liked something which a majority of people claimed was either bad or weird. (Probably quite a lot of things.)|
|× I have been clinically dead for a brief period of time.||× Instead of feeling sympathy/empathy with people and their problems, I simply become annoyed. (Depends on my mood. Most often, i am empathetic.)||× I participate/have participated in auto drag races and won.|
|× I do not 'get' most comedy acts. (I get pretty much all jokes. i think i'm very good at "seeing what they're getting at". I like a smaller subset of jokes.)||✓ I don't think strippers are money-greedy or slutty for dancing. (Absolutely not.
And aside from wether or not strippers are "slutty", I ABSOLUTELY ABHOR the word "slutty" having negative connotations, or being co-opted by loserish Hilton wannabes to refer only to sexuality that entertains others (rather than entertaining the "slutty" person themselves). Slut pride!!!!!)
|× I don't like to chew gum.|
|✓ I am obsessed with history/historical things and can't wait for someone to build a time machine so I can be the first to use it. (oh GOD yes.)||× I can never remember for the life of me where I parked the car.||✓ I had the TEEN ANGST thing going for at least 2-3 years.|
|✓ I wish people would be more empathic and honest with each other. (Yes, yes, yes. Grow-the-fuck-up, humanity.)||× I play Dungeons and Dragons weekly. (No, but i do own more than one Warhammer 40K model.)||× I love to sing.|
|× I want to live in my mother's basement when I grow up. (Not so much.)||✓ I have a custom-built computer. (Yes! Morgan! Morgan! *le sigh*
When i have more money to play with, i plan on building one myself for educational purposes.)
|✓ I want to create a certain someone's babies, even though there's a 0% possiblity of ever achieving it. (I want Joss Whedon's babies of creativity. I want Logan Echols's babies of bad-boy-ness.)|
|✓ I would be in a relationship with one of my pets if they were human. (This seems wrong.)||× I've gone skinny-dipping. (Noo.)||× I've performed in three plays.|
|✓ I enjoy burritos. (Occasionally. A lot. I was at Taco Bill's last night.)||× I'm Irish and loving it.||✓ I have a thing for redheads. (And blondes. And brunettes. And people with black hair. ...)|
|× I am a twin!||× Most of the times, I'd rather do something intellectual instead of doing something generically 'fun'. (I don't distinguish between the two. Well, i suppose if it's "generically fun" and not fun for me, i don't think of it as fun at all.)||× Once I set out to finish something, I always stay at it until it is completed before I move on to something else.|
| × I wish there were a way to erase past mistakes. (Not really. Mistakes are part of existence. I wish there was some way to visit parralel universes, see what your other self did, and take the lesson back with you to your own universe.
Or trade with your other self for a week. Like in "The Prince and the Pauper".
But not outright "erase".)
|× I sleep more than 12 hours a day.||✓ I wish I could be prouder of what I've accomplished, but it's never enough. (I think i often do have that problem of being more happy with looking forward to something than with having completed it.)|
|✓ I need more time to myself. (Rephrase: I need to get back to a place where i am sane and capable of enjoying such time. I used to define nmyself by this trait, and i feel like i'm losing it.)||× I wish I was more open-minded. (I am *very* open-minded. I'm close-minded about some close-mindedness, though. The ironing is delicious.)||× I hope that I go really prematurely grey.|
|✓ I download songs from the internet. (I have done this. I haven't paid for them. I am very comfortable with that.)||× I've just reenacted chapter 58 of Death Note with my best friend.||✓ I say random things to freak people out. (I would like to. Sometimes it comes out. I'm working on it... being a good-natured dishonest conversationalist hasn't really done anything for me.)|
|× I'm still a little mad about the ending of Death Note.||× I love playing Truth or Dare.||× I love listening to slow music, but I hate singing to it.|
|✓ Music helps me remember that I am not alone. (Especially Courtney Love, Sleater-Kinney, and The Spazzys.)||× Playing my favorite sport makes me temporarily forget my problems.||✓ I think this survey is particularly long. (But laid out in a particularly awesome way, which cancels out it's length nicely.
I plan to play around with this: http://pyesetz.furtopia.org/meme-3col-gen.html)
|× I prefer my LJ friends to my real-life ones. (LJ friends are real-life friends.)||× I can only hate someone that I love. (Phhht, no way. I hate MANY people whom i have never actually met. ALL of the Liberal Party's official Cowardly Backbenchers (they have the most powerful job in the country, and they still suck up to Cabinet members!... Politicians are idiots), people like Downer, Howard, Nelson, etc etc AD NAUSEUM..., the Pope, the Iranian ayatollahs, the large numbers of faceless jerks who work hard to make the world a slightly worse place... i'm sure it's all pretty obvious. Let's move on...)||× I've ordered an extra two shots of espresso to an Americano at Starbucks.|
