[Current Mood |bouncydone with chemistry!!]

Surveys are a good way of learning random, obscure things about someone, and letting this enhance what you already know and love (or, know and hate! haha).
Hence:


1.EVER BEEN GIVEN AN ENGAGEMENT RING?
Nope! Maybe later…

2. HOW LONG YOU'VE LIVED IN YOUR PRESENT HOME?
…Your grammar hurts?
Here it’s been about 2 years.

3. LAST GIFT YOU RECEIVED:
a fond thought and a much-meant “I love you”…several, at that!
Also, a cookie my manager had bought me a month ago. Almost cried—it was so kind of him!

4. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU DROPPED YOUR CELL?
None. I RULE YOUR ASS!!

5. ARE YOU ALLERGIC TO ANYTHING?
Yep—pollen and dust and pollen and nicotene and mold and pollen…did I mention pollen?

6. THING (S) YOU SPEND A LOT OF MONEY ON?
Bus passes, train tickets, plane tickets…those are thankfully the only recent big things :)

7. LAST FOOD YOU ATE?
Right now I’m eating a cheese omelette and english muffins with strawberry jam and lots of butter. Mmm. This is living…so was cooking it.

8. FIRST THING(S) YOU NOTICE ABOUT THE OPPOSITE SEX?
Nose, eccentricity level, smile, how he treats me.

9. ONE FAVORITE SONG?
“Learning to Fly” by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers—that one’s been on repeat

10. WHERE DO YOU LIVE?
Roseville…w00t.

11. HIGH SCHOOL YOU ATTENDED(ing):
Erm. Live Oak High for three days…then was home-schooled for a few months…then took the CHSPE at 16 and passed (meaning I graduated high school)…then started at Gavilan College. Yeah. Not a whole lotta real high school in there.

12. CELL PHONE SERVICE PROVIDER?
Cingular. Their voice message system makes me murderous, but at least the signal’s always clear.

13. FAVORITE MALL STORE(S)
Auntie Ann’s Pretzels. Those are the only things that make the mall worthwhile! Try their almond pretzels with caramel dip. *drooooool*. I buy little else at the mall and haven’t gone in ages.

14. LONGEST JOB HELD:
my…current job at the bookstore. lol

15. DO YOU OWN A PAIR OF DICE?
Yes! Six different sorts actually. D&D style!

16. DO YOU PRANK CALL PEOPLE?
Nope. That’d be mean

17. LAST WEDDING ATTENDED?
A wedding for one of linda’s relatives. Everyone was drunk except me…it was funny!!

18. FIRST PERSON YOU'D CALL IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY?
Erm. My family?

19. LAST TIME YOU ATTENDED CHURCH:
at least 10 years ago. I don’t remember much, other than being really hungry and bored and wanting some flatbread (yes, I was lame and apparently not at all Christian, even back then!).

20. FAVORITE FAST FOOD RESTAURANT:
in n’ out burger. Sooooo good and fresh and simple. They have a cheeseburger without the meat patty! Cheeeeeeese…shake…FRYYY…

*ahem*
“can you come to my party Saturday?”
“eeerm. Saturday? No, I’m planning to be sick this weekend. Sorry!”
:P

What happened to 22?

23. WHERE'S YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT WITH FRIENDS?
Fresh Choice. Mmmm. Or, somewhere I could cook for them.

24. CAN YOU COOK?
Yes. Though my cooking style’s so bizarre that most people seem afraid to try it. I tamper with recipes (if I use them at all!), and mix things that most people wouldn’t even think of mixing.

25. WHAT CAR DO YOU DRIVE?
None. (aka: my ass)

26. BEST KISSER?
Um. Best kisser to me, or is there a rating system involved?
Either way, the answer would be Ari.
(Ari--it’s what’s for dinner!)

27. LAST TIME YOU CRIED?

28. MOST DISLIKED FOOD:

33. FAVORITE MOVIE?
The Matrix, Mannequin, or The Princess Bride. Hard choice!

Mr. Ari (surprise surprise!)

55. LAST PERSON ON YOUR MISSED CALL LIST?
I…honestly can’t remember!

Bob Seger!
"Then you walk to the window and stare at the moon
Riding high and lonesome through a starlit sky
And it comes to you how it all slips away
Youth and beauty are gone one day
No matter what you dream or feel or say
It ends in dust and disarray

Like wind on the plains, sand through the glass
Waves rolling in with the tide
Dreams die hard and we watch them erode
But we cannot be denied
The fire inside"

Yes I can. Your point is…?

10. do you know how to play poker?
Nope. But I know how to eat pretzels!!

11. have you ever been awake for forty-eight hours straight?

12. the new wendy's commercial "SENSATIONAL!"
I’m confused. What are you asking?? *cowers in corner*

If I drove, probably not. I’m natural-born wuss :P

15. do you have a secret that no one knows but you?
Yes—or rather, a whole bunch of them that only a few people know. I’d probably die with such a secret festering inside me with no outlet. It’d break out of my stomach and jump into a friend’s ear or something!

16. boston red sox or new york yankees?
I know nothing about either of them—not exactly into sports

17. have you ever been ice skating?
Yes! That stuff makes your legs so sore…I only fell down once, but then again I never left the wall! (I’m kinesthetically challenged, lol)

18. how often do you remember your dreams?
Quite often. I tend to forget most of the sexy/exciting ones though, which pretty much sucks. At least I still get the “WTF???!” ones to keep my memory company.

19. when was the last time you laughed so hard you cried?
Last night—or was it the night before? Was telling Ari stories about how gullible I used to be as a child :P good times.

20. can you name five songs by the beatles?
“You’ve got to hide your live away”, “hey jude”, “yellow submarine” (oh GOD, the agony!), “sgt. pepper’s lonely hearts club band”, “imagine” (or was that john lennon?)

21. what's the one thing on your mind?
There are several things IN my mind at any given time, but as to what’s ON my mind…I have really no idea, lol.
“I disapprove of all this sex on the tele. I mean, I keep falling off!”

22. Do you believe in love at first sight?
Not love at first sight. but love at first knowing, yes.

…do I want to?

24. do you always wear your seat belt?

26. do you like sushi?
Vegetarian sushi, yes—the rolls with avocado and such frickin’ OWN YOU.

27. have you ever narrowly avoided a fatal accident?
Car-wise, thankfully no.
Metaphorically—yes. My anorexia was about as a fatal an accident as anyone can get (but then again, was it an accident??)

28. what do you wear to bed?
Nothing! Unless it’s cold. (yes, forget I ever told you that.)

Nope. I dislike and/or despise some people…but not hate them

32. rock or rap?
Rock!! Rap is the Antichrist…seriously.

33. if you could sleep with one famous person, who would it be?
no, please?!? Get that thing outta my face. I JUST don’t LIKE you. Wait…what are you doing with that knife, ahhhhhh!!!!?!!!11

34. do you know anyone in jail?
Nope, thankfully I’m sure

35. have you ever sang in front of the mirror like your favorite singer?
Well—sang along to great songs in front of the mirror, yes.

Actually, nothing I’ve tried. I’m about as un-picky and into “bizarre foods” as they come.

38. did you ever play, "i'll show you mine, if you show me yours"?
oooo, no but that might be fun! *fantasizes*

39. have you ever made fun of your friends behind their back?
The whole point of making fun of friends is to annoy them—how would that accomplish anything?

You may want to check! They're largely a west-coast thing at the moment, but they are sloooooowly spreading eastward. So, hopefully soon you shall! They are so awesome. There's a whole hidden submenu that spreads by word of mouth, but that isn't shown on the actual menu they have. I always order the Grilled Cheese (which is a double cheeseburger except it has no meat at all, as I've said)...yet, it's not on the menu! But if you ask for it, they know what it is...it's really cool lol.
And everything is made there, from scratch...it's so good.
