1. No. I haven't been in a serious relationship yet. I'm just beginning to sort out my intimacy issues.
2. My dream growing up was to be a librarian, then a writer.
3. When I was little, it would have been the talent to cartwheel/handstand/do somersaults. Now, I wish had the talent to draw.
4. Depending on my mood, it would be cider or tomato juice.
5. Asparagus
6. The last book I finished was The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde. I am currently reading Saplings by Noel Streatfield, Doreen by Barbara Noble, The Fourth Bear by Jasper Fforde and The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy.
7. Libra (Moon in Aquarius, Aquarius Rising)
8. No tattoos because I can never decide on one for a long enough period of time and getting rid of one is soooooo expensive. My ears are pierced, but that's it. Don't feel the need for any more.
9. Physical habit: biting my nails, though I'm getting better. Mental habit: defeating myself by thinking of all the bad things that could happen first.
10. Well, I don't drive but I would definitely call you a cab. :)
11. Show jumping to watch.
12. I try to be optimistic.
13. Read? Joke? Tell secrets?
14. Possibly being bullied at school because I'm still dealing with the effects. I've never been raped or assaulted so I count myself lucky.
15. What counts as weird? I can write with both my left hand and my right hand.
16. I'm not allowed to have pets where I live. My parents have two white cats, Misha and Mimi. Misha is a dog in a cat's body. Mimi is a cat through and through.
17. I would welcome any friend if they showed up at my house unexpectedly.
18. Depends on who you are. :D (ask in the comments)
19. Clowns are funny. I didn't know that people were scared of them until I was grown up.
20. I would make myself two or three inches taller.
21. I would definitely be a conscience.
22. Sky blue.
23. Nope.
24. Bottle (you can close and reopen)
25. I would buy some food, buy a return ticket to British Columbia, and then use the rest to pay off my mortgage.
26. My flat (failing that, my friend's flat).
27. Yes. Growing up in an old country, you encounter things.
28. Read, write, browse the internet, watch movies, watch videos, chat to my friends.
29. Online, yes. In real life, no.
30. People playing loud music out of their car windows or their houses.
31. Unique or aspiring.
32. Yes, but not when it comes to me. I have a hard time with that.
33. Favourite food? Nectarine. Least favourite: brussel sprouts.
34. Yes, but I have questions. Lots of questions.
36. The Beatles, Camera Obscura, Fleet Foxes, Mamas and the Papas, Manu Chao, La Oreja de Van Gogh, Saint Etienne

I can write with both my left hand and my right hand.
That's quite impressive. Does your handwriting look the same with both hands?

Haha, nope. I am naturally left-handed so my handwriting looks much better when I use that. But I CAN write with my right hand if I need to - it looks like a five year-old's writing.


01)Only with battery-operated devices, I'm afraid.

02) What year? Because they included gardener, certified public accountant, supreme court justice, youth minister... The list goes on and on.

03) I always wanted to be good at gymnastics.

04) Amber ale. Or a margarita. Or a mojito. Or....

05) Zucchini.

06) Skullduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy. It was "meh." I am now reading The Bone Garden by Tess Gerritsen. Not much less "meh", to be honest.

07) Capricorn.

08) My ears and my...............ears. No, seriously, just in my ears.

09) Biting my nails? Overeating? Sloth?

10) Is it raining? Have you showered? Where are you going? Where am I going? Am I running late? Am I carrying a polka band and don't have any room in my car?

Of course, the answer is yes.

11) Top Gear.

12) If I had to pick one, pessimistic.

13) Ah, the obligatory "snog the living daylights out of you" question. I figure we would chat. Or maybe play cards. Or get out at our respective floors and bid each other adieu.

14) Depends on your definition of worst. I've had a lot of bad things that might be considered worst: my mom's aneurism fucked up how I interact with other human beings and how I deal with scary situations; the fight I had with my mother when I was in college taught me not to trust her; my cat dying was pretty horrific and I still see what he looked like in the vet's office when I close my eyes; the job I had in Arizona pretty much fucked me up for years; the debt I'm in is pretty awful. But like I said, all's relative and depending on the definition.

15) Just one? Uhm. I have a tailor's bunion on the outside of my right foot.

16) Yes! My kitties! TJ and POPCORN.

17) I'd wonder how the hell you got from England to Topeka. And be kind of weirded out. I mean, uhm, why me? Why without warning? What if I'm not wearing pants?

18) I thought you were an incredibly talented writer. Still do.

19) Why is "stupid" not an option?

20) For LOLz, I will say "get rid of my tailor's bunion", when really, I think it would be to have hips and an ass. Because I don't. I am built like a rectangle.

21) C'mon. You've MET me and need to ask that?

22) Hazel, but sometimes I say green because people don't get what color that is.

23) Nope.

24) Can soda, bottle beer.

25) I'd claim "pay off some of my debt", but really? Spend it on friviolties I can't afford right now.

26) Home!

27) Eh, maybe?

28) Write, read, video games, eat food.... I am too simple a girl!

29) Do you swear a lot?
Fuck yeah! No, seriously, I do, but it mostly depends on my mood. Some days, I don't swear at all; others, like a sailor.

30) Just one? Okay, uhm, uhm, uhm, uhm.... People who take their children in public but have absolutely no control over them, or, worse, no desire to control them. A close second: people who armchair diagnose themselves with things that are serious, like autism and eating disorders.

31) AWESOME.

32) I guess? I believe in love, and I appreciate people who aren't assholes to their partners. Does that count?

33) Favorite: steak and potatoes
Least favorite: onion

34) I believe in a god who set this world in motion and now doesn't care what we do with it. So kind of?

35) You already put up your answers, so it'd be silly for me to do that, now wouldn't it?

36) Barenaked Ladies, Indigo Girls, The Wise Guys, Scouting for Girls, Snow Patrol, Girls Aloud

I'd wonder how the hell you got from England to Topeka. And be kind of weirded out. I mean, uhm, why me? Why without warning? What if I'm not wearing pants?

Well, as long as you were wearing a skirt or jeans. *LOL* Kidding, I know what you meant.

I thought you were an incredibly talented writer. Still do.

Blushing for real.

Hazel, but sometimes I say green because people don't get what color that is.

Seriously? That's sad. :( My dad and sister have hazel eyes. :)

01) Only with the couch and my computer. How unfortunate.
02) To be an English teacher.
03) The ability tossing and/or draw.
04) Root beer.
05) Zucchini.
06) Bleed by Laurie Faria Stolarz. Currently working on The Cinderella Hour by Katherine Stone.
07) Sagittarius.
08) No tattoos, but I have two piercings in each earlobe.
09) Cracking my knuckles.
10) Well, considering I don’t drive either, I guess I’d offer to call you a cab. :)
11) Basketball.
12) It depends on the situation, I suppose.
13) I’m going to have to knock on wood for that one. It happens to be one of my worst fears.
14) I haven’t had any traumatizing things happen to me. And I certainly hope I never do.
15) My feet are all gross and calloused and are in dire need of a pedicure.
16) Yes! A hound dog named Turk <3.
17) Uhm... Would you like something to drink?
18) You were truthful and to the point. Nothing better than that.
19) Neither. I’d prefer to label than as ‘creepy’.
20) I wish I could be twenty pounds lighter.
21) Your conscience. Sorry to spoil your fun.
22) Blue. Many say grey, but nah.
23) Bottle, please.
25) Probably save half of it for a rainy day and use the other for bills and boring stuff.
26) This battlefield from the Revolutionary War. It’s got a dark history, yeah, but it’s beautiful.
27) Only in the Holy Spirit. (Sorry, religious barf.)
28) Write. I don’t really have too much free time these days.
29) Only when I’m high off life or ridiculously mad.
30) People who talk so fast I can’t understand them.
31) Only one? Well, alright. I’ll say... FUN? :D
32) Yessir.
33) Favorite: Grandma’s potato salad. Least favorite: Tomato sauce. Bleh.
34) Yes. No if, ands, or buts. :)
35) I already have all your answers. But, hey, if you want me to...
36) I don’t have favorite bands, as weird as that sounds. I just listen to music.

You were truthful and to the point. Nothing better than that.

That really is one of the best compliments I've ever had. Thank you.

You're most very welcome. Definitely wouldn't say it if I didn't mean it. :)

01) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
Nope. I am incredibly private. No one gets anywhere near me.

02) What was your dream growing up?
I wanted to be a lawyer for a long time. Then I realised I actually liked historical stuff.

03) What talent do you wish you had?
Drawing.

04) If I bought you a drink what would it be?
Rum and Coke.

05) Favourite vegetable?
I love vegetables, therefore I have lots of these. Peppers, fresh peas straight from pods, sweetcorn, courgettes, parsnips, carrots. I can't pick just one!

06) What was the last book you read?
Reformation by Diarmaid MacCulloch.

07) What zodiac sign are you?
Libra! :D

08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where.
Nope. I hate pain. I like the thought of getting a tattoo, though I'd probably take too long to decide what design would mean most to me (there is nothing worse than a superficial tattoo) and then where oh where would I get it done?

09) Worst Habit?
Finishing off people's sentences for them and suggesting words for them to use if they have even a nanosecond's moment of hestiation. :P

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
Of course! :)

11) What is your favourite sport?
Tennis to watch, swimming to participate in.

12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude?
Optimistic.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
I'd probably end up making you talk about your views on life, the universe and everything in general. Then, when the maintenance guys come to rescue us, you'll think, "Did I really tell her all that?"

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?
I have been molested a couple of times, though I was able to shove said molestors away from my general person and everything was fine. Not fazed at all. Worst things are when pets die and when I fail things (not often, but it happens and I get MAD.)

15) Tell me one weird fact about you.


16) Do you have any pets?
Until very recently I had Molly the Staff. Now the senior pet in the house is my brother's bearded dragon George. It's cute, but really, really dumb. :p

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly?
I'd say, "Come in!" This followed quickly by, "Tea?"

18) What was your first impression of me?
Clever, with a sense of humour and good at foreign languages (which I was proper jealous of, may I add.)

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
I am ambivalent towards clowns.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
Nothing. I am okay with how I look.

21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
Crime partner.

22) What colour eyes do you have?
Green.

23) Ever been arrested?
Not yet.

24) Bottle or can soda?
Bottle.

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?
Visit Japan, buy some awesome clothes and put the rest in a high-interest savings account. I am not boring at all. XD

26) What's your favourite place to hang out at?
Local pub #1, local pub #2 and until recently, the Postgrad Club at the uni, which has closed down. Boo.

27) Do you believe in ghosts?
Nope.

28) Favourite thing to do in your spare time?
Write.

29) Do you swear a lot?
Yes. Far too much. I need to stooooooop...

30) Biggest pet peeve?
Arrogance, aggressiveness, close-mindedness.

31) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
Laid-back.

32) Do you believe/appreciate romance?
For other people. But I still think it's a means to an end. Like those rituals David Attenborough films in jungles with interesting animals as the stars. :)

33) Favourite and least favourite food?
Can't pick a favourite, but I really hate eggs and bananas.

34) Do you believe in God?
Pretty much an Atheist over here, though I'm not militant like Dawkins.

35) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?

I'm doing in here, is that okay?

36) Favourite band(s) of ALL time:
Sigur Ros, Delerium, Rufus Wainwright, Regina Spektor, Stevie Wonder, Muse, The Tiger Lilies, The Specials, Radiohead, the whole neo-classical scene that's coming out of Iceland at the moment (Olafur Arnalds, Johan Johannsson etc.) and so much more than that. I listen to a lot of weird shit, to be honest...

the Postgrad Club at the uni, which has closed down

WHAAT? How dare they! >:(

I hate bananas too. XD And thanks for the compliment about foreign languages, btw.

01. I have, as some might say, someone who will "peel my shrimp" ^^
02. To be an artist, actually. Then it changed to be a writer when I was in junior high.
03. Dancing!
04. ... Juice? XD Something wonderfully fruity. Or if that's time in the evening, a shot of Don Julio.

07. The confused fish at the end of the zodiac.
08. Just in my ears. *checks* Yep, still there. My ears, I mean.

10. ... If I knew what you looked like? XD Though, I always have the urge to offer rides to people caught in the rain.
11. Basketball, I suppose. But I'm much too short to play. Love watching tennis~
12. I usually try to be optimistic but sometimes pessimism is too easy to succumb to.
13. ... Talk? XD Share snacks with you? Plot an escape route?
14. Hmm. Possibly the family problems that I recently got pulled into...
15. Uh ... When I find a song I like, I'll listen to it over and over and over again. Like, almost a hundred times. Seriously. My iTunes counts are incorrect 'cause I always restart the song before it properly ends ^^;
16. Yep - me!
17. Blink. Say "ohaithar" and let you in of course!
18. "I totally want to write like this woman *____*"
19. I used to think think they were funny, but as time wore on, I began to understand why people think they're scary.

21. Depends on the situation at hand! *rubs hands in glee*
22. Brown like - uh, earth.

26. Since the library isn't close to my house, Barnes and Noble.
27. I don't *not* believe in them? I've not had any incredible encounters, just ... things that you feel.
28. Write. Read. Listen to music. Play piano. One of those at any one time ^^;
29. It's something I'm trying to curb (all bets are off when there's spiders involved o_o)
30. I suppose rudeness? Not being considerate to others. I can never answer this question on the spot.
31. Little~~ XDDD
32. Yes, I admit to being a sap ^^;
33. Favorite food ... fruits! I'm really loving Rainier cherries. Least favorite would be bittermelon. (But hm, I dunno if I like brussel sprouts)
34. Yes, but like you, there are questions.
35. Maaaaaaaybe. We'll see xP
36. Oh man ... that's hard. PASS! *runs away* (I admit to being on an Incubus spree as of late, though.)

I have, as some might say, someone who will "peel my shrimp" ^^

I have NEVER heard that expression before! O_o

The confused fish at the end of the zodiac... Just in my ears. *checks* Yep, still there. My ears, I mean... Swearing? Procrastination? It's always hard to answer this question xP

Yep, you're definitely a Pisces. XD

"I totally want to write like this woman *____*"

Awww, thanks.

I'm thinking I should delete my answers.

It was something that came up on group chat and as most things happen in chat, it somehow turned into an innuendo that we now use XD

LOL, I didn't even think about that!

Don't delete them! ;_______________;

Okay, I won't delete them. *lol*

It was something that came up on group chat and as most things happen in chat, it somehow turned into an innuendo that we now use XD

Ahhhhh. ;) Okay then.
