When you look at yourself in the mirror, what's the first thing you look at? Hair and eyes come into focus at about the same time.
How much cash do you have on you? Right now? I'd have to look. In general? Whatever I haven't spent from the last plasma donation or two, plus lunch money and bus fare.
What's a word that rhymes with "TEST"? Rest. Which I need more of.
Favorite plant? The Alaskan wild rose. Dad's least favorite plant, I think. He spent years and years ripping them off the property.
Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone? "No Calls Stored". Probably "Unavailable" if I hadn't cleared the lists.
What is your main ring tone on your cell phone? I'm tempted to do a voice post for this -- but it's the happy chiming "Kyocera Ring". The ringtone I use for friends is called "Firefly" (which should make a few people very happy).
What shirt are you wearing? It is left over from yesterday; I spent the night on dustraven's couch. It is pink and ribbed. Long-sleeved. More magenta than pink, really.
What do you "label" yourself? Lunatic! (Also: chick, fen, bi, frickin' eclectic neopagan, witch, geek, sub/switch, writer, azurelunatic)
Name the brand of your shoes you're currently wearing? Does barefoot count? Up until I took them off, I was wearing my "fuck me later I'm working" shoes, brand possibly unknown/unknowable from hard wear. The shoe store goon recommended them for lots-of-hours-on-feet, which is probably why good ol' Homie G at work called them "security guard shoes" and laughed. (I don't care -- my feet can take walking in these.) They seem to be safeTstep or something of the like. Size 10.
Bright or Dark Room? Right now? I want darkness and soft bed. In general? Light enough to see what I'm doing. I tend not to notice that my apartment is a cave because I have a 60 watt light about two feet from my keyboard, and the ceiling panel on in the kitchen.
What do you think about the person who took this survey before you? sionainn is awesome and takes the cutest photos of her menagerie! (One hound, size Alaskan Sled Dog; one decatted tomcat, stripey; one decatted Queen -- poster kitten for note_to_cat!) She was my best chickfriend for a while until Life Attacked and we got out of touch.
Ever "spilled the beans"? Oh gods. Fhgwghds, even. I used to be far, far less socially ept than I am now, and I'd not win any prizes now. Used to be, I had to be explicitly informed that even the least savory-sounding happening was Not Public Knowledge. There were some ... run-ins ... involving a certain Idiot.
What were you doing at midnight last night? I was hanging out with trystan_laryssa having a good old-fashioned gossip about bishies, computers, and other similar things, following up my first entire time through watching Labyrinth. Pants, magic pants!
What did your last text message you received on your cell phone say? There's nothing in the in-box right now. The last one I know I got, I sent to myself to give me directions on where I was going for the rally. The last one I show saved from another person, was Sis telling me about the aftermath from a situation. I know I got other text messages from Sis more recently; those involved Darkside's dad and my utter terror.
Do you ever click on "Pop Ups" or Banners? Those two things are entirely different sauces intended for the same revenue goose. Pop-ups, never ever ever. I despise the things, and I have ideas for the eternal fate of not only the hapless inventor, but those who use them.
Banner ads, on the other hand, can be perfectly decent and legitimate. They just sit there. Sometimes they move. (Well, they move often, but eh.) If they're advertising a product or service that I'm interested in, and the purveyor looks non-skeezy (say, a manufacturer's ad for HP notebooks on yahoo webmail might catch my attention, and I know I've clicked on a Vonage ad or two)-- but the ones that I'm very much not interested in, or ones that catch my attention as "skeezy", mostly by accumulated experience, grammar, and graphics skills (those "WTF is your credit score?" and the auto insurance by state with the new different ways to display the 50 states -- raindrops, peacock feathers, candies) -- those I stay away from like woah.
If a banner ad or a side-panel ad actively offends me, whether it be with skeeziness, offenses to grammar, offenses to art (a non-proportionately resized image is an offense before the eyes of the Other), offenses to sanity, offenses to morality and/or common decency (Yahoo's IMU ads), offenses upon my poor cones and rods (anything with clashing and flashing), and other values of Just Plain Wrong, I employ a happy little Firefox plugin called "Adblock". Out of some semblance of a social conscience, I don't do this on ad-supported sites that I frequent unless the offense given by the ad is egregious.
What's a saying that you say a lot? "Today is a disaster area." Which isn't really a saying, it's an in-joke, as is "FIRST DRINK OF THE DAY!"
Who told you they loved you last? V. And she sends big hugs to the rest of the writing group.
How many drugs have you done in the past three days? Today's Tuesday. Since Sunday, inclusive? Two. 1,3,7 trimethylxanthine, and theobromine. Homie G at work was getting somewhat unnerved by the marked effects that the first substance had on me. I don't indulge particularly often, despite environmental pressures -- so it's always a bit unnerving.
How many rolls of film do you need to get developed? None at the moment. I've been using the digital camera.
Favorite age you have been so far? I've been very happy at 25. I think the runner-up is 21.
Your worst enemy? Besides the obvious, myself, I think I'd have to list assorted workplace people who seem to want to actively interfere with my doing my job. Of course, anything that might be construed to be on that list of people who outrank me, it's probably just general cluelessness, and of the phone goons not pulled to assist, I think I can handle that. Aside from that, there's an itty bit of social ickiness that went down a few years back -- but that's not a current problem.
What is your current desktop picture? A nice blue-and-rippled thing with the text of the Wizard's Oath.
What was the last thing you said to someone? Verbally: it involved "Good luck on the math!" to the mother of dustraven's son the Mad Scientist. Online: I was commenting on Petridish about that page-breaking ass BobaJames.
If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to change a major regret? I think I only have the one major regret. That one, I'd choose to have changed over a billion bucks. All the rest? I'll take the cash. I tend to not collect regrets. Most of my major-in-the-past regrets have faded with the departure of adolescence. And a million bucks would help solve my regret of not seeing the Little Fayoumis more often.
Do you love/like someone? Oh yes. His handle for the purposes of this journal is Darkside. I may have mentioned him once or twice. *grin*
