Getting to know you...

Looks like I've hit a new high on the number of people following my blog. I'd like to send a huge thanks to those who read my trash.

The series of tubes we call the internet can be a cold place sometimes. Impersonal. Today I hope to change my little corner of it a little.

23 questions. To be perfectly honest, it's a meme I got from a blogging friend of mine. I figured it would be an interesting thing to try.

If you want to answer but don't want to stamp your name to it, feel free to comment anonymously.

1. Can you cook?
2. What was your dream growing up?
3. What talent do you wish you had?
4. Favorite place?
5. Favorite vegetable?
6. What was the last book you read?
7. What zodiac sign are you ?
8. Any Tattoos and/or Piercings?
9. Worst Habit?
10. Do we know each other outside of blogging?
11. What is your favorite sport?
12. Negative or Optimistic attitude?
13. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
14. Worst thing to ever happen to you?
15. Tell me one weird fact about you:
16. Do you have any pets?
17. Do you know how to do the macarena?
18. What time is it where you are now?
19. Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
20. If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
21. Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
22. What color eyes do you have?
23. Ever been arrested?
24. Favorite fictional character of all time?
25. If you won $10,000 dollars today, what would you do with it?
26. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
27. What’s your favorite hangout?
28. Do you believe in ghosts?
29. Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
30. Do you swear a lot?
31. Biggest pet peeve?
32. In one word, how would you describe yourself?
33. Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?


Looking forward to your answers!

1. Nothing too fancy but I can make sure there is healthy and varied things on the table each day.

2. Becoming a famous musician.

3. I would either like to be able to draw something better than a stick figure, or sing. Preferably both. Would pick singing if forced to make a choice.

4. The attic of the house I was born in. I had my room there and it seemed so huge when I was little!

5. Carrots. Raw, or cooked.

6. The tenant of Wildfell hall. I love the Brontë sisters' works!

8. Pierced ears. Planning to get a tattoo in rememberance of my mother, but having difficulty with design / bodypart. Wish I had more :)

9. Being stubborn. Trying to turn that into my best one though!

10. No. Or perhaps not yet. Meet you at fanfest this year maybe?

11. Been watching a bit of iceskating and skiing lately. If you mean doing...well, I would like to get into martial arts. Not sure yet which discipline though.

12. I'm negative by nature but try to be as optimistic as I can.

13. Call for help and talk about random stuff until someone gets us out of there.

14. My mother passing away. She was only 50 which was far too young :(

15. None of the facts about myself I would really consider weird. Is that weird enough?

16. I have a dog that lives with my dad. My boyfriend has two cats at home, which I sort of claimed as being mine. I hope to buy kittens of my own soon.

17. Yep. And I can hum the tune along while dancing it.

18. 15:18.

19. Totally scary.

20. My chin.

21. Crime partner.

22. Dark green.

23. No.

24. Scrat from Ice Age. I crack up each time I think about his struggle with the acorn.

25. Visit some faraway countries and pay off some of the mortgage on my new house.

26. Make everyone happy in the blink of an eye.

27. My sofa.

28. No.

29. Play EVE, duh! :P

30. Yes. Even though people are usually shoked, because it is not very ladylike :(

31. People putting things anywhere but the spot they should be in.

32. Special.

33. Sure thing. Give it a few days though, I just made a new blog post today. Don't want to steal the thunder from that one just yet.

@Myrhial: Thank you so much for answering! I honestly thought everyone would chicken out. I think I gave the same answer for #5.

1. Yeah, only the basics though. I wouldn't say no to learning more though.

2. Only being 19, I guess I'm still growing up. My dream is to become involved in the digital graphics industry.

3. I wish I could sing. I'm singing almost all the time to whatever music I'm listening to, I just wish I could do it well.

4. I don't really have a favourite place, just a favourite type of place. I've always loved rural, countryside areas.

5. Cucumber. It's almost like drinking something, they're so full of water.

6. Tucker Max: I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell

7. Aries

8. No tattoos... yet. And I've got my left ear pierced and got that stretched to 5mm (normal ear piercing is around 1mm).

9. I can be pretty stubborn.

10. Nope. Well, not that I know of anyway.

11. I don't play any sports but I like to watch rugby.

12. A little of both.

13. Probably devise some kind of game to play while we were rescued.

14. Gave myself bad 2nd degree burns on my hand after managing to set wax alight. Until then I didn't know that it could be set alight so I had no idea that water just made the flame bigger.

15. The main thing I eat is peanut butter sandwiches/rolls.

16. Some cats and a tortoise.

17. I used to.

18. 4:35pm

19. Neither. I think they're a bit weird.

20. Maybe lose a little weight. I'm happy with everything else of mine.

21. Crime partner

22. Green

23. Nope, not even once

24. Used to be Spiderman but since buying the Planet Hulk and World War Hulk graphic novels, it's the Hulk.

25. Convert it into £ and then be disappointed by the conversion rate.

26. Invulnerability. I used to want to fly but I just realised that with invulnerability, I could jump out of a plane and fly towards the ground without getting hurt. Which is essentially flying, just in the wrong direction.

27. My girlfriend's bedroom. Sounds dirty but it's not, we actually watch a lot of TV while relaxing in her bed.

28. Yes and no. I won't rule their existence one way or the other until I see one or they are scientifically disproven.

29. Play EVE, obviously. :P

30. Not a lot, only when I'm angry.

31. I hate when people won't listen to me or to what I have to say.

32. Geek

33. Once I've done the next few fiction posts.

Forgive me, PsycheDiver, I personally was not able to get around and answering them. Gabe did see your list of questions and thought it would be a hoot if he answered them. His answers can be found at: http://housetheodoulos.blogspot.com/2009/02/getting-to-know-you.html
Hope you enjoy his responses.
