I, Lemming

Here's that meme that's been going around, courtesy of yokospungeon by way of madame_urushiol.

What song are you listening to?: "Weeping Rock, Rock" by Mum

Why do you like that song?: This is the first time I've ever heard it, but it has the brooding, overwrought emotional quality that I love.

What did your last incoming text message say?: Something about Mexican food sounding good. I got it last April, when my friend who lives in Denmark was visiting me in DC.

Look at your received call list. Who is number 5?: The Mr.

Did you answer?: No, I was driving and the phone had fallen behind my seat.

Who did you last talk to on aim?: I've never used AIM. The last person I IM'd was the Mr., many months ago.

Do you ever wish you were a different race, and if so, what?: No.

Would you date someone of another race?: Yes.

Do hobos frighten you?: By hobos do you mean homeless people? Not really.

What's the most you have ever spent in the crane toy machines?: Hell-lo! I completely misunderstood this question earlier. I have spent $0 in crane toy machines.

What color are your shoelaces?: No shoelaces: I'm wearing flipflops, classic Havaianas, with white insoles and green thong-part.

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?: Right now, I have to say Brazil, but New England runs a close second.

How much do you hate G.W. Bush on a scale of 1-10?: 9. I don't think he deserves to be killed, but I do think the world would be a better place if he'd never been born.

When is the last time you were in a hospital?: This past Monday.

Why were you there?: I went with a friend who had to take her daughter to see the doctor there.

What is the most painful piercing you have had?: Re-piercing my ears myself, with a pair of earrings, after years of not wearing any.

Why do you take these surveys?: I think the world needs to know more about me and my opinions.

Are you a member of the mile high club?: No.

Would you ever pick up a hitchhiker?: I have more than once in the past, but I wouldn't necessarily do it again.

Would you ever hitchhike?: I don't like to say never, but I would try hard not to be in a position that would require me to.

Have you ever cried after one of your favorite sports teams lost a game?: No.

Would you marry a 90-year-old billionaire?: It all depends on the billionaire, but I wouldn't rule it out.

Would you cut off one of your fingers for the perfect body?: I know the right answer is "Hell, no!" but I'm afraid I would probably be lying if I said that. It's highly unlikely that I would do it, but I can't rule it out entirely.

What about a toe?: Again, I can't rule it out absolutely.

Is there really life after high school? *snort* Yes.

Have you ever kept a fortune from a Chinese fortune cookie?: Yes.

Have you ever told a lover that they were good in bed, when they were not?: Yes.

Would you jump into a lake to save a stranger?: Probably, if I were the only person around who were capable of doing it.

Do you think your life story would make a great movie?: It just might. I've had my moments. Then again, in the hands of the right director any life could make a great movie.

What T.V. show world would you fit right into?: Good question. I'm not misanthropic enough for Daria, nor criminal enough for The Sopranos, nor privileged enough for Friends, nor blue-collar enough for Rosanne, nor hard-boiled enough for Homicide:Life on the Streets. Here's one: the younger me would have fit nicely into Freaks and Geeks. In fact, that show could have been written about me. I even looked like the Lindsey character, with shorter hair.

What was the sweetest thing a guy/girl did for you?: Send me basil leaves from his garden in a letter.

What is your social status?(i.e:prep, clown, goth..)(I'm a moron): Gamma girl (not as in Brave New World, more like, I've got better things to do than alpha or beta).

What is your favorite quote?: This might be apocryphal, but I like it anyway: "I have an affection for a great city. I feel safe in the neighborhood of man, and enjoy the sweet security of the streets." Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Are you high maintenance?: Overall, no.

Do you frequent Wal-mart/ any other 24 hr. store at all hours of the night?: I did my share of wee-hours grocery browsing when I was younger, but those days are behind me.

What's the last pill you've taken?: Some vitamins.

Would you rather be in a room with Michael Jackson or a rattlesnake?: At least the rattlesnake wouldn't bore me.

Have you ever gone to a bookstore at 12am to buy the next Harry Potter book?: Yes.

Have you ever been so bored that you counted cracks in the walls?: Not that I recall.

If your eyes could be any color, what color would they be?: A darker brown than they are now.

Do you read while you eat?: I try not to, but sometimes, yeah.

What's the weirdest combination of food you've ever eaten?: I'm fond of eating a plain omelette, cooked in butter, with Chinese oyster sauce. Is that weird?

Were you pregnant or pmsing when eating it?: No.

How long does it usually take you to drink a glass of beverage?: Not long. If it's water on a hot day, not long at all.

What did you want to be when you were in kindergarten?: An architect or a marine biologist.

What do you want to be now?: Working with people I like. My dream job is either pastry chef or mapmaker for National Geographic.

What's worse, a papercut or a big gash in your finger?: A papercut is more painful. A big gash has more potential for infection. The papercut wins because at least you can do something about an infection, while pain just sticks around until it feels like stopping.

What is your favorite movie, and why?: Right now, I'd say The Spirit of the Beehive. The perfect blend of concept, moving story, and visual execution.

Grab the book closest to you. Look at page 18. What is the fifth sentence?: "When alone she sometimes picked it up and kissed the cold glass passionately." from The Awakening by Kate Chopin

Have you ever read a life changing book? What was it? What was so special?: The Boyfriend School by Sarah Bird. It showed my uptight seventeen-year-old self a whole different way to be, that fun doesn't have to be stupid. It also helped me leave my controlling high-school boyfriend.

Ever watched a life changing movie? What was it? What was so special?: Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! did a lot for me around the same time. It wasn't so much the bondage theme that did it as the taste of avant-garde Spanish culture.

If you could change your name, what would it be?: I went through a period in high school of hating my weird furrin' name and wanting to be renamed Jane Smith, but I'm past that now. I love my name exactly the way it is.

When you were afraid of the dark, what was the creature that haunted you?: A very hairy, furry man. Sort of a wolfman without the more literal wolf characteristics.

What is your favorite cartoon from the 1980's?: The Simpsons.

1990's?: Beavis & Butt-head.

2000's?: South Park.

What song comforts you when you are sad?: "O sol nascerá", Cartola

What song enhances your happiness?: "Sweet and Dandy" by Toots and the Maytals works nicely.

What song can make you cry?: "The Star-Spangled Banner"

What song do you listen to when angry?: "Violet" by Hole is always good.
