1 Elaborate on your default icon.
C'est moi! Well, c'est moi circa 2000 or so, but I still like it. The half-hidden in shadow thing fits with both my rather shy regular personality and the whole "Dark Queen" nickname motif.
2 What's your current relationship status?
Married. How scary is that?
3 Ever have a near-death experience?
Depends on your definition. I came within 3 inches of having a trailer hitch embedded in my forehead in one car accident, but physically I came away with only a bad case of whiplash and a completely accordioned vehicle.
4 Name an obvious quality you have.
Warped as hell and determined to make you laugh about it.
5 What's the name of the song that's stuck in your head right now?
"In A Big Country," of all things. I haven't heard it in ages but it's been in my head all afternoon.
6 Any celeb you would marry?
Ohhhh maybe. I mean, if J. died valiantly while assasinating the president, and Tim Curry stopped by to console me in my moment of grief, or something. And then I'd buy a magic pony that craps diamonds. ;)
7 Who will cut and paste this first?
Sorry, my ESP is offline until Thursday.
8 Has anyone ever said you look like a celebrity?
I've been told I bear a scary resemblance to Claudia Christian as Ivanova when I get honked off.
9 Do you wear a watch? What kind?
Err... it's apparently made by some company called "Brighton". It's mainly black with silver trim.
10 Do you have anything pierced?
8 in the ears, navel, nipple.
11 Do you have any tattoos?
4 on my back, one on my ankle. More in planning.
12 Do you like pain?
I like the "wow, that was a great workout, I'm exhausted" kind of pain. Otherwise, no.
13 Do you like to shop?
Online only. I love being a gift ninja for the weird things I can find on the internet. I absolutely hate going to physical stores, and malls are my own personal hell.
14 What was the last thing you paid for with cash?
Mass amounts of brewing supplies!
15 What was the last thing you paid for with your credit card?
Err. My car registration, I think?
16 Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?
A telemarketer. Bluh.
17 What is on your desktop background?
Some of the promo art for American McGee's Alice.
18 What is the background on your cell phone?
Caramon looking like SatanCat.
19 Do you like redheads?
I suppose? I think it's a lovely hair color, I just get tired of 3/4 of the time running into the "I'm a redhead, that means I get to stereotypically be a bitch/bastard!" attitude. I also get sick of running into blondes who think they have to act like bimbos/manwhores, and brunettes who think they have to be icequeens/brooding angst puppies. Basically I like them all and there are fortunately a good chunk of each group who don't feel the need to play a role. ;)
20 Do you know any twins?
Not at the mo', but my old school had a disproportionate number of them.
21 Do you have any weird relatives?
All of them. ;)
22 What was the last movie you watched?
Harry Potter. Hoping to get to see Stardust soon.
23 What was the last book you read?
Richard Bachman, "Blaze". I thought it was a fantastic idea and very compelling characters, and unfortunately lacked an ending.
24 Is there such a thing as love at first sight, or it is more likely to be "lust at first sight"?
I think at first sight it's pretty much by definition lust, or "crush" (depending on if you flip for bods or brains). Some are fully justified and turn into love later.
25 What's your favourite novel?
...I refuse to answer that on the grounds that my brain just exploded.
26 When was the last time you visited the street where you first lived?
Where I technically first lived? That'd be when I was 1, when we moved away. The house we moved into after that is where my parents still live, so that was last month.
27 Do you read your horoscope?
On occasion, for shits and giggles. :)
28 Who's your favourite of the seven dwarves?
Depends on my mood and how much the world sucks that day. It would vary between Doc, Grumpy, and Sleepy.
29 When was the last time you googled your own name?
A couple days ago to find random comic hits. I ended up finding an old friend I haven't talked to in years. Rock!
30 What was your favourite subject at school?
31 What was your least favourite subject at school?
Gym. Not because of the athletic component, which I catually liked. Just that the setup of competetive teams with kids that age always turns into a combination of who can be snubbed and/or have the shit kicked out of them rather than the skill of the game. Even when I wasn't the target (which I usually wasn't, I dodged too much to make it worth their time), it always made me angry and sick to watch.
32 Do you like having your photograph taken?
Nope. I was cursed by the Thirteenth Fairy at my christening, and she did cry, "Once this child hits puberty, she shall never have a photo taken where she is not ducking her head and squinching her eyes so that she looks like a blinded gopher! Mwa ha haa!"
33 What time were you born?
Mid-morning. I've hated getting up early ever since.
34 Ever seriously questioned your sanity?
Seriously? A few times a year.
35 How many phone numbers do you have remembered and can say off the top of your head?
Three or four ones that are still valid. About a dozen others that are no longer any good.
36 Can you Limbo?
I can hang out in the grey fogs outside purgatory with the best of 'em. Bending under a stick? No. For some reason, that's one of the two ways I am Not Bendy.
37 Have you ever killed your own dinner?
Unless you count pulling up veggies, no. I know how, and I can if I must. But offered the choice, I'd rather not.
38 How long have you been living at your current residence?
39 What phobias do you have?
Failing my loved ones. I'm also extremely "YEEEARK"-ey around Kamikaze Flying Rapist Roaches.
40 What's your ideal breakfast?
Diet Coke. Usually, if I eat anything solid before 1 or 2 in the afternoon, I get violently ill.
41 Where are you right now?
42 What book or movie title best summarises your personality?
Either Lost Boy Lost Girl or The Rum Diaries, probably.
43 If you could suddenly get the skill to play any single musical instrument, which would you choose?
Cello. I loooove the rich, dark sound of the cello. (Dammit, titanium_kitty, you stole my answer!)
44 Why do you blog?
I started because I had multiple friends and family around the world who I kept falling out of touch with because I didn't have time to write the same news in email over and over and over. A blog was the perfect central location for replying. Then I started using it to just share anecdotes and work on my humor writing. Now I also use it for comic news and suchlike.
45 Do you have any prejudices you're willing to acknowledge?
If someone dresses and acts in a stereotypical manner I have a short period of time before I can fight past the instinctuve feeling that they're doing it on purpose because they want to be seen that way. I know it's not true, and I am working on it.
46 What would you call your autobiography?
"Crazy Cat Cthulhu Lady: The Paws That De-Fleshes."
Actually, I just pulled that out of my ass, but now I think it's got a ring to it.
47 What's the longest time you've stayed out of the country/where?
Three weeks in England during college.
48 Do you have nightmares frequently?
Pretty much every night.
49 If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
I'd hope so. Depends on who else I was. I mean, if I were Hitler, I probably wouldn't like me much... do I get a choice?
50 Glad this is over?
Yeah, I like finishing things. :)
