... Because it was there. That's our only excuse.1. ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?
The one across my right wrist. Got it when I was pulling my hand away after petting one of our cats.T:
My legs and feet have a ton of scars from mosquito bites past. I also have an interesting unexplained scar across the bottom of one wrist (eerie location, I know).
2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?
Room at home: Gold-ish paint, otherwise blank. Room at college: Three prints of random art I like. It's an art college, so they double as inspiration.T:
Blue paint. And a photo wire, largely unoccupied.3. DO YOU SNORE, GRIND YOUR TEETH, OR TALK IN YOUR SLEEP?
Sleep-talk, I think. There have been times where I'm saying something in a dream and slowly come awake while I'm finishing the sentence and realized I was talking out loud. I feel so weird when that happens.T:
Of the three, I think I talk in my sleep. I have laughed before.4. WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO?
Depends on my mood. Normally soundtrack and trailer music. It's usually either epic orchestral or quieter and folk-ish (like Celtic).T:
Uh. Lots of jazz recently. 5. DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME YOU WERE BORN?
Around 11:00 a.m., according to my mom.T:
11:50 post meridiem.
6. WHAT DO YOU WANT MORE THAN ANYTHING RIGHT NOW?
To have longer than a month to spend with my family and friends before heading back to college. T_TT:
Energy, maybe.7. WHAT DO YOU MISS?
Childhood in general, I guess?T:
I like Wanderer's answer. Childhood forever!8. WHAT IS YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSION(S)?
I guess my computer, or rather, what I have in it. There is another, equally special possession that will be mentioned later (60).T:
I always tend to think my rag doll or my stuffed lion (named "Aslan," no doubt), but my computer files are pretty precious, too.9. HOW TALL ARE YOU?
Somewhere between 5' and 5' 6".T:
Shorter than K2, taller than a bread box.
10. DO YOU GET CLAUSTROPHOBIC?
If the small area is part of a structure, no. If the small area is made of people... yes
I get agoraphobic. Okay, claustrophobic, too.11. DO YOU GET SCARED IN THE DARK?
If outside, yes (for obvious reasons). Inside... depends on if I'm familiar with the building I'm in or not.T:
I technically get scared in the dark and in the light. So, yes.12. THE LAST PERSON TO MAKE YOU CRY?
Not sure, but that may have been an instructor I had in my second year. It was the last week of the semester so I was under a lot of stress and he just kind of... tipped me over the edge. He didn't actually see me break down, though. That class session had just ended so I was already out of the room.T:
Me?13. WHAT'S YOUR WORST FEAR?
Losing my family. There is another fear that's equally high, if not higher, but it isn't one based in the physical world so I won't bother saying what it is. A lot of younger people these days wouldn't understand, I'll leave it at that.T:
Feeling alone (existentially alone)?14. WHAT KIND OF HAIR/EYE COLOUR DO YOU LIKE ON THE OPPOSITE SEX?
That's not something I tend to think about... I guess dark brown hair, and either brown or blue eyes.T:
Little round professorial-type glasses. Wait, that's not an eye color? I tend to like dark hair and non-blue eyes, but my tastes are diversifying a little.15. WHERE CAN YOU SEE YOURSELF PROPOSING?
I don't really see myself as the kind of person one would propose to. If it ever did happen, keep it as low-key as possible. The elaborate, showy stuff is embarrassing to me. Big time.T:
I don't like showy marriage proposals. If I ever marry, I would prefer that we would just know we wanted to get married and then do so. We would know each other so well that there would simply be no question. Is that realistic?16. COFFEE OR ENERGY DRINK?
I don't drink either one (I can already hear my fellow students gasping in shock at the coffee part).T:
I don't really drink either, but coffee, between the two.17. FAVORITE PIZZA TOPPING?
I prefer plain cheese, but I do like pineapple and ham as well, among select others.T:
Probably plain cheese, and lots of it! (Cheese pizza was MY food for years when I was younger.)18. IF YOU COULD EAT ANYTHING RIGHT NOW, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
A Thai dish that, at the restaurant, I want to say is called Pad Thai. It's a fried rice dish with chicken, carrots, broccoli, egg, jasmine, and a few other things I can't think of (there is also onion and tomato in it, but I have those left out). It is AWESOME.T:
Duh. Cheese pizza, with plain cheese, and lots of it! Or raw broccoli, which I don't like but, somehow, want right now. o_019. FAVORITE COLOUR OF ALL TIME?
It's slowly nudged over the years from purple to blue to green, but I love all three colors equally.T:
Blue. No elaboration needed.20. HAVE YOU EVER EATEN A GOLDFISH?
Nope. I did have some as pets when I still kept a fish tank. I have also eaten the cracker version on a few occasions.T:
Plenty of the crackers, but none of the creatures.21. WHAT WAS THE FIRST MEANINGFUL GIFT YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?
I'm the youngest of three. It's nearly impossible to tell what was intentionally mine and what was a hand-me-down.T:
I think my mother bought me a full set of The Chronicles of Narnia for my first birthday (still on my bookshelf!).22. DO YOU HAVE A CRUSH?
Artistic crush (as in they are fun to draw): yes, several. Romantically: none.T:
Rather, I have somewhere about a hundred.23. ARE YOU DOUBLE JOINTED?
Don't think so.T:
I don't know. Can you be a little double-jointed?24. FAVORITE CLOTHING BRAND?W:
I pay more attention to the fit and durability. The brand means little to me when it comes to clothes.T:
I don't keep too aware of brands, but I like classic clothing.
30. SAY A NUMBER FROM ONE TO A HUNDRED:W:
31. BLONDES OR BRUNETTES?
Not picky, but if I had to choose just one it would likely be brunette.T:
In guys or dudettes?
In guys: as I said before, brunettes. Or gray hair. Yes, I like older dudes.
In girls: I don't really care.
Where's the choice for red-haired people?32. FAVORITE QUOTE?
Too many, so I'll pick a random favorite. You gotta admire this guy for his honesty:
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.” ―Albert EinsteinT:
Uh... "The unexamined life is not worth living," maybe. Of course, attributed to Socrates, if you believe he's really the one who said it.33. FAVORITE PLACE?
Hard to pick, but in the end I'll have to go with the area I'm in now (Blue Ridge Mountains) purely because it is my home.T:
Eh. I have always wanted to live in New York City.34. HAVE YOU BEEN OUT OF THE USA?
Not yet, but I'd like to!T:
Not yet!35. YOUR WEAKNESSES?
Math, heights (this from a mountain native...), socializing, ♪the list goes ever on and on, down from the dork where it began...♪T:
If I feel I need something, I can be prone to fixate on it. Particularly, I can fixate on looking good in the eyes of others/being esteemed. Also, sometimes I'm afraid I'm not loyal enough, neither to the people I know nor to principles.
36. MET ANYONE FAMOUS?W:
Vic Mignogna, a.k.a. Edward Elric of Fullmetal Achemist
. *does little jig*T:
I have talked to a virtuoso violinist dude and (sort of) know a guy who won multiple Grammys.37. FIRST JOB?
As a stockgirl for a health food store (first paying
job, that is).T:
Shelving library books
38. EVER DONE A PRANK CALL?
To my mother, yes. I think I was a (male) Home Depot employee (with a deep voice) (also, I was about ten when I did this) reporting a delivery to our house.39. DO YOU THINK EVERYONE OUT THERE HAS A SOULMATE?
I'd like to think so, but I kind of doubt it. I'm basically with Tanny on this one.T:
I don't think every person has one "soulmate." I think there are multiple people with whom each individual could "work."40. WHAT WERE YOU DOING BEFORE YOU FILLED THIS OUT?
Working on a couple of videos for Youtube. No, they are not done yet.T:
Reading Wanderer's answers.41. HAVE YOU EVER HAD SURGERY?
For wisdom teeth removal. Otherwise no, thankfully.T:
Once were deposed four pearls of wisdom.42. WHAT DO YOU GET COMPLIMENTED ABOUT MOST?
"I like your hat." ...I've been wearing a plain, dark brown/black cowboy-esque hat lately.T:
This year, it's been my voice. "You should read audiobooks for a living!"43. HAVE YOU EVER HAD BRACES?
No.44. WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY?
I have no idea. Christmas would get the same answer. I have everything I need at the present time. Just being home is enough of a present for me.T:
Ahhh, don't ask me that question! Money is the easy response.45. HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU WANT AND THEIR NAMES?W:
I don't want any.
But names-wise... for a girl, I have half a mind to name her Brooke, and if you know my actual name, it makes perfect sense... and is slightly funny. For a boy... I almost want to name him Michael. Because in Russia, the short version of that name is Misha and I love the way it sounds.T:
I don't know if I want any... wait. I do. I do think I want, someday, to have... a son.
I like some classic names and some more avant-garde names. A smattering:
Girls: Irene, Phoebe, Claire, Chloe, Sarah
Dudes: Asher, Gavriel, Zeke, Gene, Peter, Frederick, Carl, Hans, Kai46. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
I'm named after a tree...T:
Nay, verily.47. WHAT IS THE BIGGEST TURN OFF OF THE OPPOSITE SEX?
1. Don't be a jerk. I prefer the nice guys, contrary to the stereotype. 2. Don't. Try. To. Impress. Me. I don't expect anybody to be flawless. If you can't handle a person at their worst, then you likely don't deserve them at their best.T:
Pride. Male ego. This goes hand-in-hand with trying to impress me. Also, assuming I'm weak or incompetent (trying to do things for me, "silly little woman" attitude) because I'm female.48. WHAT IS ONE THING YOU LIKE(D) ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL?
: Homeschooled, so there was little difference between the grade levels for me.T:
The books I read. Although I hated it at the time, I'm especially glad looking back to have read Plato's Republic
.49. WHAT KIND OF SHAMPOO DO YOU USE?
[goes into bathroom to check] Some organic brand called Keune So Pure.T:
Cheap. Some generic-brand keratin oil shampoo in the bottle that looks like the old L'Oréal Kids fish one.50. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
Its okay, but it could be better.T:
Yeah, most of the time. It's interesting tweaking it as desired.51. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
I tend to avoid the standard processed meats. Hot dogs are about the only exception and I don't eat those very often.T:
Ham, though I almost never eat 1. processed ham or 2. pork in general.52. ANY BAD HABITS?
Procrastination and nail-biting are about the only major ones I can think of, though I'm sure my friends and family can list plenty more. I do have other habits one could call bad, but they are not exactly habits since I change them according to the situation.T:
Letting myself be anxious for no reason. Engaging in self-sabotage for no reason but anxiousness. Daydreaming my waking hours away. 53. ARE YOU A JEALOUS PERSON?
I will use that term sometimes, along with "envious" (I know they don't mean the same thing), but there is little to no actual seriousness when I say them. So overall, no.T:
I want to answer positively, but I can't remember the last time I was really jealous.54. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
I think so. Isn't "being the person you want to be" what we all want to become?T:
I tend to think not, though it'd be great if meeting myself could help me identify my character flaws.55. DO YOU AGREE WITH FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS?
I've heard that term a couple of times before, and now that I've looked it up... I'm suddenly glad I've never used it. Final answer: absolutely not
Man, I don't even have friends; I certainly ain't looking for benefits.56. DO LOOKS MATTER?
Overall, not much.T:
On a scale of yes or no, yes. 57. HOW DO YOU RELEASE ANGER?
Vent art, mostly. It's better than punching something and hurting myself, right?T:
Exercise. Music. Writing. Repeat!58. WOULD YOU RATHER GAIN 58 POUNDS OR LOSE 58 POUNDS.
Lose it, I guess. But losing that much would leave me underweight, so have to be careful with that.T:
Lose it.60. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE TOY AS A CHILD?
It was, and still is, the only homemade toy I have. A hobby horse made from a tree branch with a white sock-head and red mane and tail. The original, true form of imaginary friend Shetan, a.k.a. my other prized possession
Well, I liked fake weapons. Playmobil, too.61. HOW MANY NUMBERS ARE IN YOUR CELL PHONE?
Two or three. All of them immediate family membersT:
Several, but I have forgotten whom a lot of them are (community college study partners).62.WERE YOU A FAN OF BARNEY AS A LITTLE KID?
Never actually watched it. My childhood dinosaurs were Jurassic Park
and Land Before Time
Yes. I owned and used Barney merchandise, and I loved it.
63. DO YOU USE SARCASM?
Sometimes. (There's at least three examples just in this meme, all saying the same thing...)T:
More than I'd like, I think. I value sincerity.
64. MASHED POTATOES OR MACARONI AND CHEESE?
Both, but my taste buds favor the latter.T:
I eat neither regularly. Mashed potatoes for sentimental reasons, but good macaroni and cheese is a commodity to covet.65. WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A GUY/GIRL?
Trustworthiness is a big one. Good moral standards. Someone who knows how to take care of themselves. There is one other thing that would be nice for them to have, but again, a lot of people these days may not understand my reason for that particular, spiritual element.T:
Sigh, a professorial air. (See aforementioned little round glasses)
Well, among other things, someone who will listen to me. Someone who will make me feel understood and heard. Honesty, trustworthiness, maturity, humor, happiness, childlikeness, a sense of high moral, even religious, calling, willingness to serve people, willingness not to have a lot of money... this appears to be turning into a classified ad?66. WHAT ARE YOUR NICKNAMES?
I think my actual nickname is Pooky. Not sure if that's accurate, though. I have also had -bird and -tree attached to my name. Each tag-on is used by only one person since they are the one who came up with that name.T:
I used to be my father's Joy Joy, my aunt's Angel, my grandmother's Sunshine, and my grandfather's Nightmare.
67. FAVORITE SUPER POWER?
Shapeshifting, complete with appropriate voice/sound change. It covers all the bases.T:
Hmm... this is kind of cliche, but... flight?68. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE TV SHOW?
is what's most often played in my house, because it is short and reasonably light. Personal favorite... at the moment I think that title goes to BBC Sherlock.
Shows that make you really think
earn automatic bonus points from me.T:
I don't watch much television. I like Hey Arnold
. I learned to love Gilmore Girls
.69.WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO DEAL WITH YOUR ENEMIES?
Treat them the way they usually don't expect: respectfully, which sadly is often not reciprocated. After that it kind of varies, depending on the reason(s) why they are an enemy, I would guess.T:
Treat them well. Lord knows I need help there.70. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?
Probably cookies 'n' cream.T:
I like Wanderer's cookies 'n' cream answer, but I might specify chocolate-vanilla swirl.71. DO YOU HAVE ALL YOUR FINGERS AND TOES?
Yeah, somewhere or other.72. DO YOU HAVE A COMPUTER IN YOUR ROOM?
Yes, but its sitting in my lap at the moment (laptop).T:
Right now, I do. They move, though.73. PLANS FOR TONIGHT?
Staying home and doing things I enjoy and spending what little break time I have left with my parents.T:
Exercising and going to bed early.74. WHERE DO YOU WANT TO LIVE WHEN YOU ARE OLDER?
Same general area I do right now would be fine by me. I have very strong attachments to the mountains.T:
No clue. I haven't chosen between being a world traveler and just staying where I've always been.75. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS?
Whoever wants to.T:
If everyone wants to.76. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO?
Christopher Tin's Baba Yetu
Television sports announcer.77. LAST THING YOU DRANK?
Water with crushed ice.78. LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?W:
My dad, on the rare occasions I actually use a phone.T:
Um... unsure. I don't do a lot of telephoning.79. THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE IN THE OPPOSITE SEX?
: … Height? Because I'm short.T:
That they are the opposite sex.80. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
Drawing, video editing, researching for personal projects. That sort of stuff.T:
Recently, I've been wasting my spare time. What I will do with my upcoming spare time, though, is read, research, make art, write, practice and listen to music, exercise, organize, maybe even explore a little, locally. 81. FAVORITE THING TO HATE?
There's a lot of things I severely dislike, but I struggle to straight up hate something.T:
My parents and I like to ridicule cooking shows on public television. Maybe bad punctuation, too82. FAVORITE SEASON OF THE YEAR?
Toss-up between autumn and winter.T:
Fall.83. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE TYPE OF CANDY?
I think that would have to be milk chocolate covered peanut/cashew clusters. Candy of any kind is a “special occasion” thing for me.T:
I don't eat candy. I like looking at seasonal candy in the stores, though, for the marketing appeal.84. HAVE YOU EVER REALLY AND TRULY HAD A BEST FRIEND?
“Closest friend” is the preferred term I use. Tangerine is the only friend I get to see on a regular basis as opposed to once every few years (if lucky), so you can say she also gets the “best friend” title by default.T
: I don't generally use the "best friend" designation. Wanderer has been the recipient of the "best" designation, though...85. WHAT IS YOUR HAIR COLOR?
Dark blonde, I guess is what you would call it?T:
I remember it once called "terra-cotta."86. EYE COLOR?
Weird shade of blue-green grey.T:
Turquoise with gold around the pupil.87. SHOE SIZE?
8.5. (mens shoes).T:
9.5-10 (women’s shoes).
Its assumed Tangerine has the longer feet, but Wanderer definitely wears the longer, and overall larger, shoes.
88. FAVORITE FAST FOOD PLACE?
I’m not into fast food that much. Chick-Fil-A, if I had to choose. T:
I don't eat fast food, but I have fond memories of those grilled and/or fried chicken salads they used to have at McDonald's. Mmm. Chicken.89. FAVORITE RESTAURANT?W:
At the moment, I think that honor goes to a little family-owned Mexican place in town.T:
Uh, I like buffets with different kinds of fruit.90. DO YOU LIKE SUSHI?
Never had it. (Cue the gasps)T:
Never had it (save for a lone California roll)91. WATCH TV TODAY?
We don't have cable TV. (Cue the gasps) T:
It's on behind me. There was a women's basketball game on around an hour ago in which I was not interested. 92. FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR?W:
When it starts to feel like fall.93. PLAY ANY MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS?
I used a violin to a small extent when i was little. I've love to learn a certain kind of vertical flute that I don't know the name of. And the hammer dulcimer.T:
I play the piano. I would like to play many other instruments, not limited to the violin, trumpet, banjo, and hammered dulcimer, in addition to achieving general percussive mastery.94. REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT?
Unaffiliated. But the former, if I had to choose between the two.T:
I have radiant pride in my political affiliation, which is unaffiliated.95. KISSES OR HUGS?W:
Short kisses, solicited hugs.96. RELATIONSHIPS OR ONE NIGHT STANDS?
Is that a serious question?97. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU BOUGHT?
That I personally bought? Certain foods that the college cafeteria doesn't supply.T:
An album of cello pieces.98. WOULD YOU EVER BE A HOUSEWIFE?W:
If I ever got married (fat chance), yeah. I think I would. I’d still be doing the stuff I already do, art and such, since that’s not something I really have to leave home to continue to do work in, be it for a job or personal.T:
. . . I can see myself getting married. I like children (note: kids, not babies). Yet, as much as I adore in-depth imaginative engagement with children, I don't think I'd be content to have nothing to do but play maintenance for a husband, home, and kids. I need to research things and produce/create. I'm not knocking stay-at-home motherhood, but I'm not committing to it, either.99. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?W:
Nothing at the moment.T:
I think I'm going to start some textbooks in the next week.100. DESCRIBE YOUR LOVE LIFE:W:
