This one is unfinished. Oh well, I am tired and I have a busy day of nothing ahead of me.

1. Where were you 3 hours ago?
Getting raped by crazy pre-flop betting at a poker table.

2. Who are you in love with?

3. Have you ever eaten a crayon?
No, I've never been very adventurous when it comes to all matters culinary. I wouldn't even put cheese on burgers until I was 12 or so. It was just too crazy.

4. Is there anything pink within 10 feet of you?
Well, I'm in my parents' house and my mom is a pretty typical Dr Phil loving suburban mom, so there's bound to be.

5. When is the last time you went to the mall?
I don't remember. I don't go to malls very often. I'm not really anti-mall though. I'm just anti-people. I'm especially anti teenagers and housewives. But I'm actually all for pooling a variety of stores into one indoor, air conditioned, convenient location and rounding it out with a movie theater and a selection of restaurants. I'm totally for that. Shame about the teenagers and housewives.

6. Are you wearing socks right now?
Pfft. No.

7. Do you have a car worth over $2,000?
Eh, it probably won't be worth $2,000 when I'm through with it. I tend to have that effect on automobiles.

8. When was the last time you drove out of town?
Over a year ago when I followed the Epoxies around Texas.

9. Have you been to the movies in the last 5 days?
I saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix along with the rest of the planet. Unlike the rest of the planet, I just thought it was OK. I really think the only appeal of the movies is to see a group of kids reach sexual maturity, like the Up documentaries, only for puberty.

10. Are you hot?
I'm just here to look pretty.

11. What was the last thing you had to drink?slim fast or champagne?
I don't think I've ever drank either.

12. What are you wearing right now?
Cargo pants and an Adverts t-shirt.

13. Do you wash your car or let the car wash do it?
I just let the rain take care of it.

14. Last food that you ate?
I made these s'mores cupcakes that I don't think are very good. Still, I ate one because I spent forever making them.

15. Where were you last week at this time?
Like I can remember last week.

16. Have you bought any clothing items in the last week?
I seriously doubt it.

17. When is the last time you ran?
When I was 14.

18. What's the last sporting event you watched?
I watched the basketball world series a few years ago when it was Detroit vs LA and Detroit just pummelled them even though every one on the LA team took paycuts just because they thought they'd be guaranteed a ring or a trophy or whatever they get for winning. I took some pleasure in that.

19. What is your favorite animal?
Right now I'm pretty thrilled to have these fist-sized frogs that come and swim in my parents' pool every night but leave or hide or something during the day. Man, they are the greatest.

I think if I had a daemon though, a la the Dark Materials trilogy, it'd be a bat.

20. Your dream vacation?
Probably just sitting around at home, going out to see movies here and there and such. I don't really like to travel during vacations. I realize you're probably sitting there thinking about how ignorant and narrow-minded I must be for not wanting to travel, but you can go fuck yourself.
I find the act of traveling (packing and plane trips and such) exhausting and since the average vacation is only a week or two, you feel like you have to do a shitload of stuff and not waste your time and that winds up being exhausting too. And on top of that, I don't think it's possible, at least not for me, to really get to know a new place in a week or two. So unless "dream vacation" can mean "Move around from place to place for the rest of my life, spending a year on two in each location without having to worry about money or jobs or anything of that sort", I'm not going with "travel".

21. Last person's house you were in?
Corinne's parents.

22. Worst injury you've ever had?
I've never had a really bad one. I've had to get stitches twice, but for stupid things.

Let's just say I got bit by a shark when I was 8, because that would have been cool. At least in retrospect it would be cool. At the time, it would probably suck.

23. Have you been in love?
I stalk myself.

24. Do you miss anyone right now?
I'd like to see Corey again, but with my current schedule and the current rate of gas, Katy might as well be in Japan.

25. Last play you saw?
I don't know, but it was probably shit. Most plays are shit. I used to like plays and musicals as a kid, but after I started getting into movies, they seemed stupid, pretentious, and childish. There's something embarrassing to me about adults "putting on a play."

I still like opera and Shakespeare though, so go figure. Something about those transcends all the silliness. That or just haven't gotten rid of all my pretense yet.

26. What is your secret weapon to lure in the opposite sex?
Whenever I discover it, you'll be the first to know.

27. What are your plans for tonight?
I'm going to sit at Borders and watch rabid children running around in wizard costumes.

28. Who is the last person you sent a MySpace message or comment?
I left a consoling comment on the profile of my favorite Last Comic Standing comedian (who was booted off, of course).

29. Next trip you are going to take?
You can see above where I bitch about travel. I don't remember the question number, but I'm sure you can find it. I believe in you.

30. Ever go to camp?
a couple of times as a kid. Didn't like it then. Wouldn't like it now.

31. Were you an honor roll student in school?
I was. And I was one of those annoying ones that didn't put forth all that much effort either yet still managed to get a better grade than you. Of course, it screwed me in the end because I went to college with next to no study skills and the "I'll just teach myself everything the night before the test" mentality and now I'm quite the opposite of an honor roll student.

32. What do you want to know about the future?
I'd like to know when I'm going to die. OKCupid says I'm going to die in a month, but the Deathclock is giving me another 20 years. They're toying with me.

33. Are you wearing any perfume or cologne?
I'm just wearing my own pungent stench.

34. Are you due sometime this year for a doctor's visit?
I've gone to the doctor's more time this year than the rest of my life combined, I think. Thank you, OKCupid, for the paranoia. I doubt I'll go again unless my side starts hurting again.

35. Where is your best friend?

36. How is your best friend?
See above.

37. Do you have a tan?
I do, actually. I still paler than everybody, but I should be even paler.
From Corinne.

1. Do you straighten your hair everyday?

2. Do you worry about the size of your boobs?

3. What's your favorite girly magazine?
Morbid Curiousity

4. Would you kill for chocolate?
No, and I can't stand those "Give me the chocolate and no one gets hurt" t-shirts worn by overweight soccer moms that watch the View and read Cathy comics. They seriously make me want to kill somebody. Same goes for the "I'll eat ice cream if I get my feelings hurt" cliche.

I'll stick to my fried chicken and baked potatoes.

5. Jeans or Skirt?
I only wear skorts.

6. Do you wear clothes/shoes/jewelry that's uncomfortable?
Only if Chuck Taylors count as uncomfortable, which admittedly, they kind of are. Not in a high heel "This is painful" kind of way. Just in a "gee, you know there really are footwear alternatives that offer better arch support" kind of way.

7. Did you ever spend all day/night getting pretty for a guy?

8. Would you leave the house without makeup on?
No way. People don't think I wear much make up, but what they don't know is that I'm actually black.

9. On a scale from 1-10 how fun is shopping?
It's amazing if it's a music or book or movie or dumb shit store. It's life threatening if it's a department store.

10. Are you spoiled?

11. Do you think lip gloss is the best?
No. I only just started putting much-needed chapstick on last week.

12. Do you freak out if you miss your favorite show?
People get stabbed.

13. Do you yell a lot?
I never stop yelling.

14. How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
However long it takes me to put my shoes on and find my glasses. Unless it's the rare day where I decide to change clothes. Then however long it takes me to find a different t-shirt.

15. Do you wear sweatpants/pajamas to school/work?

16. Do you like skater boys?
Well, seeing as how I'm not 12.....

They don't offend me though.

17. Is pink truly the best color in the world?
It's all I wear.

18. Have you ever dressed unlike yourself to impress a guy?

19. Gold or Silver?

20. Do you dress up too much for holidays?
People do that?

21. Do you like wearing dresses?
No, I hate it with the fire of a thousand suns and whoever makes me wear one can rot for all I care.

22. Do you write a lot of mushy love poems?

23. On a scale of 1-10, how much do guys confuse you?

24. What makeup could you not live w/out?
Prosthetic noses.

25. Do you fall in love easily?

26. Do you have a boyfriend?

27. Do you think you have the best friends ever?
Well 2 or 3 of them are probably going to read this, so, uh.....yes? Best ever. Nobody's better.

28. Do you consider yourself pretty?
I'm the most average person ever. Here's a chart that proves it:

Very scientific.

29. Do you think guys will open this, even though it says girly questions?
I think this question doesn't apply here.

Tuesday, July 10, 2007

So I shut down the etsy store because I'm being given open ended overtime at work. And while it's not as fun, I guess, as making cross stitch moogles, I can make what I'd make from a cross stitch moogle in an hour, instead of 8 hours and a lot of pin pricks and frustration when the cross stitch moogle gets left behind at Denny's and tossed out even though the waitstaff knows full well they're just going to see me again tomorrow. And so on.

So if you're here looking for pictures of "art"work, you might want to just leave until September. For the two of you who are here for the surveys, here you go:

1. Are you taller than your mom?
Yes, but everyone is.

2. What color is your shower curtain?
I've got frosted glass doors. If I had a shower curtain, it'd be the color of mold.

3. What is the closest thing to you right now that is red?
A pig heart.

Not really.

4. What is your ring tone?
Standard ringing. I tried doing the whole expressing yourself through ring tones thing because I hate the standard ring anyway. But as it turns out I hate the sound of a ringing phone because I dread having to talk to anyone, not because the sound is unpleasant. Ergo, I began to hate whatever Smiths or Joy Division tones I had as well.

5. Does anything hurt on your body right now?
Everything hurts right now. My wrist hurts because I shelved heavy books in a stupid manner. My feet hurt because I've been working 12 hour shifts. My stomach hurts because I eat disgusting food and can't take the hint. My side hurts because God hates me.

6. What color is your favorite pillow?
I just have one really, so I guess that's the default. It's white.

7. What is your favorite video game?
Of all time is probably Maniac Mansion. Also I have a real fondness for the Dragon Warrior/Quest series.

8. Had a nap today?
No, naps are the worst. I just feel groggy and disoriented afterwards.

9. Gold or Silver?

10. Is there an animal that creeps you out?
I dread cicadas.

11. Who was the last person you rode an elevator with?
I don't know, but they were probably pretty pissed when I purposefully pressed all of the floor buttons.

12. Did you go ice skating as a kid?

13. Ever have stitches?
Yes. And I like having them. I'm not a fan of grossing people out with the standard vulgarities, but something about disgusting wounds just does it for me. I will show that stuff off and delight in the groans.

14. Favorite non-alcoholic drink?

15. How long ago did you hug someone?
Don't touch me.

16. What's something you want to do before you die?
make an automaton - a good one

17. Have you ever caught something on fire?
I'm a flamer

18. Have you ever seen a ghost?
I've taken pictures of orbs. Does that count? I went to a haunted spot a few months ago, but all I saw was a redneck.

19. Have you ever seen northern lights?

20. Do you know how to use chop sticks?
Too white.

21. Name something good that happened today
I came in 7th at my poker tournament. That's not all that great though.

Living room.

23. Are you worried about something you can't control?
Not really.

24. Do you take daily medications?

25. Ever been in a fight?
No, but I have hung back and tried to look menancing a number of times.

26. Do you read shampoo bottles?
every night before I go to bed

27. What time is it?
'bout that time

28. Innie or Outie?
Extreme innie. You outies disgust me.

29. Ever used a Ouija board?
Yes. But if you had asked "Have you ever used a ouija board and gotten it to do anything the slightest bit interesting ever?", you'd have gotten a different answer.

30. Sweet or Sour?

31. Sun or Moon?

33. Favorite eye color of the opposite sex?
I avoid eye contact at all times.

36. Time of day you were born?
When the moon was full.

37. Do you know your blood type?
Funny you should ask, because I don't, but I'm supposed to find out.

38. Do you know how to kill a zombie?
Don't beat them, just join them. It's like pulling a band aid.

40. What would you spend 5,000 dollars on right now if you were handed it?
A chinese junk.

41. Name something annoying in public transit?
What isn't annoying about public transit? How about a 10 minute trip taking an hour?

42. Which animal(s) remind you of yourself?
I took a test to find out what my animal type was, and I was told I was a bat.

43. Whats your background on your pc?
Adam Ant

44. Did you grow up in the city or country?

45. Would you ever consider going on a reality tv show?
Only if it was one that no one watched ever and therefore I could get the invasion of privacy experience without actually having my privacy invaded. But I'm not sure such a thing exists because i used to read the blogs of some people who were on the reality tv show Kept and they said they got approached all the time by people on the street who watched the show. And really - who the hell watched Kept? Except me. I'll watch anything, I swear.

46. Have you flown in your dreams?
Probably. I mostly just have nightmares about annoying people though.

47. What's one thing you're really good at cooking?
I usually like the soup that I make.

48.kisses or hugs?
Don't touch me.

49. You have 10 dollars to spend in the dollar store... what do you get?
I will build a gigantic army of little green men.

50. Ice-E flavor?
Blue raspberry can't be beat.
