100 baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahsheeps

Ganked from Lil and everyone else.

1. ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?
There's one on my head that I got from getting hit by a car when I ran a red light on my bike. I don't remember a whole lot about it other than sitting splay-legged in the middle of the intersection after taking a short but intense flight over the car, and people gabbling at me asking stupid questions like who the president was instead of "are you going to throw up on my feet within the next three seconds?" (even though the answer to the latter might have saved them a pair of shoes). I got a few stitches to piece my scalp together and it still itches in bad weather.

2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?
Some photos, 5 prints of Lucifer covers (the graphic novels, not random Satanist art), and a ginormous mural of the Gate of Moria that I never quite finished but probably should (Elvish writing is a pain in the butt, y'all).

3. DO YOU SNORE, GRIND YOUR TEETH, OR TALK IN YOUR SLEEP?
I'm told I snore occasionally.

4. WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO?
All kinds. There's very little I won't listen to, but I find it an eternally impossible challenge to describe what I do like, lol.

5. DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME YOU WERE BORN?
11:25 am, on the due date. Very boring & punctual.

6. WHAT DO YOU WANT MORE THAN ANYTHING RIGHT NOW?
Same thing I always want - a bunch of cash and instantaneous transportation skillz.

7. WHO DO YOU MISS?
My patience, mostly.

8. WHAT IS YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSION?
Probably my computer *clutches it*

9. HOW TALL ARE YOU?
169 cm. (About 5'5" for you footsy types.)

10. DO YOU GET CLAUSTROPHOBIC?
Not usually.

11. DO YOU GET SCARED IN THE DARK?
Depends on the kind of dark? If I can see a little bit or it's the kind you can get accustomed to, not terribly. Absolute total darkness yes, is freaky.

12. THE LAST PERSON TO MAKE YOU CRY?
Myself, ridiculously enough.

13. WHAT’S YOUR WORST FEAR?
Being eaten by a shark.

14. WHAT KIND OF HAIR/EYE COLOUR DO YOU LIKE ON THE OPPOSITE SEX?
Don't particularly care.

15. WHERE CAN YOU SEE YOURSELF PROPOSING / BEING PROPOSED TO AT?
I hope I won't be needing that again (for the record, the way I did it was thoroughly unromantic, lol).

16. COFFEE OR ENERGY DRINK?
Coffee is my life's blood.

17. FAVOURITE PIZZA TOPPING?
Tuna. And lots of garlic.

18. IF YOU COULD EAT ANYTHING RIGHT NOW, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
A custard square (with real custard, not the squashy yellow fake crap).

19. FAVOURITE COLOUR OF ALL TIME?
I like most colours, as long as they're not pastels.

20. HAVE YOU EVER EATEN A GOLDFISH?
*debates sneaking into gf's office to nick a fish only to be able to say "yes" to this ridiculous question; decides it's probably not really worth it, in the grand scheme of things* No.

21. WHAT WAS THE FIRST MEANINGFUL GIFT YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
My Algerian grandmother used to send me all sorts of stuff when I was little - crates of dates (which I hated), self-baked flatbread (mouldy by the time it arrived), lots of camel-hair blankets (pretty!) and clothes. I always loved it when something came from her, just by virtue of how far this stuff had come and how utterly foreign and exciting it was, but I particularly remember three silk dresses she sent me, in three consecutive parcels. They were all handmade and all over silver and gold-thread embroidery; the first two were green and blue and didn't fit and/or I didn't like the colours, I don't remember. The third one was red and perfect. I loved it to bits and wore it all the time. It felt magical, like even not knowing me at all, this unknown fairy grandmother kept on me sending desert-spun dresses until there was one that was truly me.

22. DO YOU HAVE A CRUSH?
Constantly.

23. ARE YOU DOUBLE JOINTED?
Er, no.

24. FAVOURITE CLOTHING BRAND?
I buy whatever I think is pretty. *steals answer from Placebo*

25. WHO IS THE HOTTEST FEMALE/MALE CELEBRITY?
Do you have a week? 'Cause I can list hot people until the cows come home. Then I can list the cows in order of attractiveness.

26. DO YOU HAVE A PET RIGHT NOW?
I am owned by two and a half cats, yes. (The half is the impostor).

27. WHAT KIND IS IT?
Mammalian, cuddly, and highly annoying.

28. WOULD YOU FALL IN LOVE KNOWING THAT THE PERSON IS LEAVING?
Leaving what, the country? Isn't that what LDRs are for? Also, you could leave with them? Unless they're leaving this dimension or something. Then I'd probably still fall in love and turn it into a TV show and get famous on my bereavement. Totes.

29. DO YOU DRINK/SMOKE?
Drink, quite regularly. Smoke, occasionally/socially.

30. SAY A NUMBER FROM ONE TO A HUNDRED
572. (I suspect this question was conceived to make people be contrary and annoying.)

31. BLONDES OR BRUNETTES?
Nyeh. I used to say blond guys and brunette girls to this, but honestly I have such a tendency to crush on people who are completely not my type that I have long suspected my type is in fact "anything not my type". Make sense? No, didn't think so.

34. HAVE YOU BEEN OUT OF YOUR CONTINENT?
I've lived for substantial amounts on three different ones, so I no longer really have one that I'd call "my continent."

35. YOUR WEAKNESSES?
Impatience for stupid. Kittens. Baked goods. Ice cream.

36. MET ANYONE FAMOUS?
I'm vastly amused that AWZ people no longer seem to count, lol. I met several of my favourite authors. And I ran into John Hannah once while in London and may have stalked him a bit.

37. FIRST JOB?
Odd jobs for my Aunt's B&B.

38. EVER DONE A PRANK CALL?
...actually, no, I don't think so.

39. DO YOU THINK EVERYONE OUT THERE HAS A SOULMATE?
That word has taken on all sorts of unhealthy, falsely romanticised connotations. I do believe that there are people you meet that you can have an instant connection with, but I don't think that always has to be a romantic connection, and I certainly don't believe everyone is destined to be with one certain person who is the only one who's right for them, no.

40. WHAT WERE YOU DOING BEFORE YOU FILLED THIS OUT?
Catching up on channel comments.

41. HAVE YOU EVER HAD SURGERY?
Just once (appendectomy when I was 11).

42. WHAT DO YOU GET COMPLIMENTED ABOUT MOST?
My hair, I guess.

43. HAVE YOU EVER HAD BRACES?
I narrowly escaped them when I was 13 - an evil dentist wanted to force me into them to close the (pretty small) gap between my front teeth. However, I decided that being bespectacled and spotty-faced and 13 was quite enough torment, TYVM, and refused. (Also, I like my gap :p)

44. WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY?
A plane ticket to Cologne or enough room in Lil's luggage to smuggle myself in.

45. HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU WANT?
None. I like kids, but I like handing them back to their parents more.

46. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
My great-grandmother and the daughter of my mother's favourite actress (uhm, that's not as weird as it probably sounds, but my mother had me shortly after her favourite actress had had a baby and IDEK, I guess it seemed like a good idea to her).

47. WHAT IS THE BIGGEST TURN OFF?
Leering. And bad smell.

48. WHAT IS ONE THING YOU MISS ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL?
Absolutely nothing.

49. WHAT KIND OF SHAMPOO DO YOU USE?
I suspect it's some Herbal Essences stuff but I'm not sure. And I'm too lazy to go check.

50. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
Not particularly.

51. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE LUNCH?
I don't really do proper lunches often.

52. ANY BAD HABITS?
Tons.

53. ARE YOU A JEALOUS PERSON?
Yes.

54. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
I'm not sure? I am perpetually incapable of gauging how I come across to other people, so I have the same difficulty trying to suss out how I'd come across to myself.

55. DO YOU AGREE WITH FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS?
lol, what an oddly phrased question. I have no beef with the concept, no.

56. DO LOOKS MATTER?
They do as far as first impressions go, but after that it depends very much on the person. I often stop finding beautiful people attractive when they turn out to be icky personalities, and gradually find lots of physically attractive things in initially non-hot people I like a lot.

57. HOW DO YOU RELEASE ANGER?
I get bitchy and rant a lot. Or if it's something really massive, I get really cold and quiet and... don't release it, I guess, which is bad ;)

59. WHAT’S YOUR MAIN GOAL IN LIFE?
To maintain a healthy balance between believing in magic and indulging in sanity-preserving cynicism.

60. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE TOY AS A CHILD?
"Also, ich hatte ja nichts! NICHTS hatten wir damals!" *channels Norman* Uhm, seriously? WE HAD NOTHING, lol. We played outside and built forest forts. My favourite toy was probably the bow that some random dude made for me, and I carved my own arrows. I was a Stone Age child.

61. HOW MANY NUMBERS ARE IN YOUR CELL PHONE?
Rather few. No more than 20, I think?

62. WERE YOU A FAN OF BARNEY AS A LITTLE KID?
I grew up without telly. Also, without America.

63. DO YOU USE SARCASM?
BWAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAH, I would never.

64. MASHED POTATOES OR MACARONI AND CHEESE?
Mashed potatoes, yum.

65. WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A GIRL/GUY?
Uhm, sparks? THIS QUESTION IS TOO GENERIC.

66. WHAT ARE YOUR NAMES?
Hi, I'm Aldi.

68. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE TV SHOW?
AWZ.

69.WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO DEAL WITH YOUR ENEMIES?
I have been known to hex them. No, literally. I'm not a nice person.

70. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?
Mint chocolate chip or cookies and cream when I'm feeling creamy. Raspberry sorbet when I'm feeling fruity.

71. DO YOU HAVE ALL YOUR FINGERS AND TOES?
Yes.

72. DO YOU HAVE A COMPUTER IN YOUR ROOM?
Two *clings to them*

73. PLANS FOR TONIGHT?
Work. Blech.

74. WHAT’S THE FASTEST YOU’VE EVER GONE IN A CAR?
With me driving? Er, about 15 km/h :p (I don't drive).

75. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS?
NO, PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, STOP. I'm still not caught up on reading everyone else's, lol.

76. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO?
Yowling cats under my window.

77. LAST THING YOU DRANK?
Water.

78. LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
Grandma on her birthday, I think. She was complaining about the cold winter. It was 14 degrees Celsius apparently. AUSTRALIANS ARE WEIRD.

79. THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE IN A GIRL/BOY?
Dress sense? Height/carriage? Hair? Eyes? Hands? Voice? Absence of unusual alien growths? The usual.

80. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO IN YOUR SPARE TIME?
Fandom stuff, hiking, lazing about, going to the beach. Travelling, if I can afford it.

81. FAVOURITE THING TO HATE?
Despite evidence to the contrary, I don't actually enjoy hating on things; it takes too much energy.

82. FAVOURITE MONTH OF THE YEAR?
No idea. I used to like August, but I haven't gotten used to Southern hemisphere season reversal, so I'm having trouble just flipping it and saying February because that still sounds weird, lol.

83. WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE TYPE OF CANDY?
Minty chocolatey things. Peanut M&Ms. Good quality gummis.

84. HAVE YOU EVER REALLY AND TRULY HAD A BEST FRIEND?
Yes.

85. WHAT IS YOUR HAIR COLOR?
Depends on what I dye it ;) ATM, it's reddish-brown with some lighter bits.

86. EYE COLOR?
Greenish.

88. FAVOURITE FAST FOOD PLACE?
Don't really do fast food, but any decent fish & chips place will do.

89. FAVOURITE RESTAURANT?
Don't have one. Something cosy and pub-like is what I usually like; I don't tend to go for posh places.

90. DO YOU LIKE SUSHI?
Didn't used to, but it's grown on me.

91. LAST THING YOU WATCHED?
Zero Effect. [info]alsha and I had a long-standing argument about whether or not I'd seen that film before (she swears yes, I have absolutely no recollection of it) so I finally (re?)watched it. Still didn't remember a thing, but now I've seen it. Yay?

92. FAVOURITE DAY OF THE YEAR?
Do people seriously have a favourite day of the year??

93. PLAY ANY MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS?
No, I'm not very musically gifted. I used to play the flute when I was little and I had a brief stint of trying to master the guitar in my early 20s and failed miserably.

94. REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT?
Pls to be keeping your American Schmarrn to yourself, meme. I can't vote in Kiwiland. If I can get my arse in gear in time to vote for Austria, I go with the Greens, useless as they are.

95. KISSES OR HUGS?
Yes, please. The more the better *is touchy-feely*

96. RELATIONSHIPS OR ONE NIGHT STANDS?
I have no issue with either.

97. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU BOUGHT?
Petrol. Exciting!

98. DO YOU HAVE A LOW SELF ESTEEM OR A HIGH SELF ESTEEM?
Both. Simultaneously. What can I say, I'm a mess.

99. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?
I'm rereading the Liveship Traders trilogy by Robin Hobb. I fucking love those books.

100. DESCRIBE YOUR LOVE LIFE
Uhm, no.

Comments

Australians? Weird? I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. *shifty eyes* In your Grandma's defense, if she lives anywhere near me it's bloody freezing. We are having our coldest winter since 1982. Last night I left the nutella jar out on the kitchen bench AND IT FROZE. NUFF SAID.

And YAY! for overseas parcels. They sound like so much fun!
#28: If it were the world without shrimp, I would totally hike dimensions with them.

#92: I was wondering exactly the same thing. Besides, I can hardly decide whether or not to be arsed finding two socks of the same length to put on in the morning, even though that answer is always, "No, I really can't." Matching socks are totally square. /random tangent

#100: You and

#100: You and <lj-user="praderwilli"> both, dammit. Here I am being all pervy and curious, and you're both like, "Pfft, no, you pervs." Le sigh.

And #39. See, I'm wondering what happens in the seconds that the world has an odd number of people. The question implies that there's Only One. So do they pair people off at birth and the odd-numbered babies are just soulmate-less for a few seconds? And if so, wouldn't that mean that a) whoever just <em>happens</em> to be born closest to you is your One And Only, and b) that the chances of you ever meeting are pretty much nonexistent? Because both of those are pretty bleak. Not to mention the fact that you'd hope that there'd be other, random, elsewhere births between twins, too, or that could get a bit awkward. But then, how do c-sections come in? Because then twins (or triplets, or whatever) would be born at PRECISELY THE SAME MOMENT.

Seriously, TPTB better bloody well have the logistics and fineprint of this worked out.

<em>She was complaining about the cold winter. It was 14 degrees Celsius apparently. AUSTRALIANS ARE WEIRD.</em>

Uhm, I'd like to second the fact that while 14 is quite warm for winter in my southerly sub-Antarctic state of southernness - WINTER SHOULD JUST GO AWAY, ALREADY. (Actually, to be honest, it's not been a bad winter here. But it's only rained like twice in about 7 months. We're in for some crazyskates bushfires this summer, I think. Oh dear. *peers out loungeroom window at all-too-vast amounts of very dry bush reserve*)

STONE AGE FORTS AND DIY WEAPONRY FOR THE WIN!!!
(Haha, oops. HTML fail.)
LOL! your thorough analysis of the issue of soul-mates is made of WIN!
Well obviously SOMEONE'S got to do it. There are serious logistical errors, here. *pulls up hair and puts on glases* Now. Do they factor in sexuality? Do they, at birth, say "Every fifth couple, people, every fifth!"? Because what if the next baby is a girl and after that a boy?

Also, I don't see the point, really, if most of us will never meet our soulmate, anyway. Stupid PTB.
I'm rereading the Liveship Traders trilogy by Robin Hobb.

Oh, I loved those books! And the Farseer Trilogy, as well. I only read the first book of the third trilogy (whatever it's called) because my brain kinda stopped working, and it's been many years since I reread any of the others, but I adored them. They're pretty much at the top of my list of stuff to reread when I'm not constantly occupied with other things.

Those dresses your grandmother sent you sound gorgeous! Young!me (who was a total princess) would have been so jealous! *G*

69.WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO DEAL WITH YOUR ENEMIES?
I have been known to hex them. No, literally. I'm not a nice person.


*loves immensely*
You're a winner. That is all.

Except not:

I'm blaming Dawson's Creek for the shizzy soulmate question. Van Der Beek's fivehead gave teenage girls false expectations of grand romance and crushing on your BFF.

I don't know why, but when you said sushi's grown on you I had mental images of you sprouting a California roll or similar, like barnacles or something. Eh, I may need mental help.
Photobucket

How very dare you. Dawson can't help that he has a sensitive soul and that his BFF picked his other more sarcastic BFF over him. His fivehead and dream of finding The One are all he has left now.
<33333333! BEST. GIF. EVER.
AWZ people count! I'm sure AWZ people count :)

And yay for self-sustaining childhoods (although we did have some toys not improvised) but it's much better to go clambering around on dirt-mounds that become mountains and making trees into helicopters. My sis and I went searching the wild west on our trust-worthy horses, so what if they were just the backs of sofa and armchairs!

*pouts* Do we not get the story of the unromatic proposal?
#13 that's practically the reason I will never visit ur continent.
I watched a Discovery Channel documentary on the world's 10 deadliest animals in the world and apart from the Cobra (Asia) all of them are from Oceania *shudders*
#17 HAHAHAHAHAHA DUDE, I HAD NEVER HAD TUNA AS A PIZZA TOPPING …UNTIL I LANDED IN AUSTRIA (INNSBRUCK.) I HAVE PROOF, SEE???? RIGHT HERE! I SAW IT IN THE MENU AND HAD TO HAVE IT!!!!




AND HERE! HAHAHAHA OMG IT WAS DELICIOUS! <333333
MUAHAHAHAHA!!! I looked at the picture and my first reaction was: "That's not English... what is .... OMG! BRAIN WAKE UP!" And yes, at first I look at pictures and then I read the text! :P

The fish is everywhere.
(Actually, I was wondering where on the planet they made tuna pizza...)
Being eaten by a shark

The Discovery Channel had Shark Week last week and every year during Shark Week I swear up and down that I'm never going to get into the ocean again because it's scary and gross and scary.

Then Shark Week is over and I'm promptly over it.

Yay! These memes are fun!
#74 and #97 seem to be a bit contradictory unless petrol isn't what I think it is...
Hahah, well spotted. I bought the petrol, but I wasn't driving.
The things you learn on the Internet!

I never knew that tuna on pizza was considered weird in some parts of the world.
It's such a standard item here. No self respecting Italian pizzeria anywhere in Europe would survive without a "Pizza al Tonno" on their menu. And very rightly so!

Looks like Spaghetti ice cream is not the only thing that awaits introduction to wider gourmet circles.
91. HAHAHAHA, my DH and I have that conversation all the time. "Have you watched this movie?" "I can't remember." "I think I made you watch this movie once a long time ago." "Maybe just some parts of it?" "Never mind, just watch it this time and then we'll know."
