it takes a lonely one to wish that she had never dreamt at all

  1. Where were you 3 hours ago? curled up on the couch with a book in my lap: Cheating at Canasta by William Trevor
  2. Who are you in love with? "with" implies that someone else is there, too. That does not appear to be the case. Correct answer, then: no one.
  3. Have you ever eaten a crayon? gnawed, maybe, but I doubt that I ate the whole thing
  4. Is there anything pink within 10 feet of you? [why is it always "pink"?] Oh, this is a good one--my Victoria's Secret "perfect fit" card
  5. When is the last time you went to the mall? no clue. Cat, was that around Homecoming-ish?
  6. Are you wearing socks right now? yep
  7. Do you have a car worth over $2,000? Hell yeah
  8. When was the last time you drove out of town? NYE weekend
  9. Have you been to the movies in the last 5 days? not hardly. I did watch two this weekend, though--I hated, loathed, and detested (500) Days of Summer, but the viewing experience was completely redeemed (as I thought it would be) by Fay Grim, the sequel to Henry Fool
  10. Are you hot? not temperature-wise, right now. If I am in the other sense, it's not in the obvious manner, but more the sort that sneaks up on you
  11. What was the last thing you had to drink? water
  12. What are you wearing right now? a couple of layers of PJs. My apartment is blustery.
  13. Do you wash your car or let the car wash do it? if I had a place to do it, I'd wash it by hand every weekend. For now, I car-wash it frequently and take it to the hand-washer as often as I feel flush.
  14. Last food that you ate? the end of my Christmas cookie stash. They were surprisingly un-stale (and delicious).
  15. Where were you last week at this time? probably roughly the same spot? *sigh*
  16. Have you bought any clothing items in the last week? wow - I have! A couple of pairs of corduroy pants to replace the one pair whose button broke (and was a mile too large anyway).
  17. When is the last time you ran? I make a lame attempt to trot across the street when cars approach. Other than that...it's been a while..
  18. What's the last sporting event you watched? Apart from the curling movie (seriously, I'm just going to keep pounding this until you see it, so you might as well give in), it was probably football.
  19. What is your favorite animal? there's a certain guinea pig who's captured my heart (aww)
  20. Your dream vacation? warm. quiet. long.
  21. Last person's house you were in? Cat-Beast's
  22. Worst injury you've ever had? broke a couple of bones (3, actually), dislocated and tore some stuff, sprained nearly everything there is to sprain, infected...everything - but the worst was probably the overdose
  23. Have you been in love? yes
  24. Do you miss anyone right now? yes, for all the good it does. Why am I always the one who's remembering, and not the one being remembered (by the right person, needless to say)?
  25. Last play you saw? Mary Poppins at the Cadillac Palace. It's been too long; I love theatre.
  26. What is your secret weapon to lure in the opposite sex? drama
  27. What are your plans for tonight? sleeeeeeep
  28. Who is the last person you sent a Facebook message or comment? message: the Mumbler. Comment: the Cat
  29. Next trip you are going to take? probably north. Again. Because I have no imagination, and even less money.
  30. Ever go to camp? there was just this one time? When I was at band camp?
  31. Were you an honor roll student in school? not one of the exciting ones
  32. What do you want to know about the future? only how long it lasts, so I know if there's any point in working hard for retirement
  33. Are you wearing any perfume or cologne? um, no
  34. Are you due sometime this year for a doctor's visit? yeah, pretty much like every year
  35. Where is your best friend? AK, MN, and two in IL
  36. How is your best friend? gamely making the best of it; fine; getting better; and doing what she can to prop me up
  37. Do you have a tan? *snort*
  38. What are you listening to right now? "Carve Your Heart" by Dashboard Confessional (the songs that I've used on mixes are shuffling in iTunes--and the title quotation is from this song)
  39. Do you collect anything? yep.
  40. Who is the biggest gossiper you know? I work with someone who is almost incapable of answering simple questions about herself because she's so accustomed to talking about other people. I don't....reveal...to her.
  41. Last time you got stopped by a cop or pulled over? 5/24/09 at 1:29 PM
  42. Have you ever drank your soda from a straw? no, I generally drink it from a cup, can, or bottle
  43. What does your last text message say? (I'll let you choose which is incoming and which is outgoing)--
    ":D as a matter of fact i do... ;)"
    "Makes me want to put up a quote about skanky losers in response. She's bad enough - her friends are complete freaks."
  44. Do you like hot sauce? hahahahahahaha
  45. Last time you took a shower? about 14 hours ago
  46. Do you need to do laundry? nope, but I do need to fold the clean laundry that's been piled on my bed for a couple of days
  47. What is your heritage? I come from fjords + bad teeth
  48. Are you someone's best friend? so they've told me, amazing as that sounds at the moment
  49. Are you rich? Compared to whom? in friends, shotglasses, and memories - compared to those who consider themselves poor, eh?
  50. What were you doing at 12 AM last night? reading or blogging, I think?

[shamelessly stolen from The Cat, of course, who got it here]


  1. I think Ruka misses you. He's been very loud lately.

    There is a foreign filmfest in my immediate area soon. Interested????? (not theatre, but Culture anyway)

    re #43: I am certain I know which was yours

    And I have NO IDEA when we last shopped!

    WV: wriedibl

  2. Please make gp noises in his general direction with my compliments.

    I'd love a foreign filmfest! Tres bien.

    #43: prehaps, but can you tell which of Beast's & my (but not yours & my [oy, the grammar!]) mutual friends wrote the other? 8)

    We clearly need a shopping excursion. Hmm. I think I have some catalogs through which we could flip when next we spend time.

    WV: I consider my blog posts, and certainly your commentary, very "wriedibl."

  3. GP greetings have been passed along.

    Will send film details once I find them online, under separate cover.

    I'm going with Landlord on #43 based on your clues.

    We're on for Monday?

  4. We're on for Monday, barring our usual Catastrophic Weather Event. (Have I doomed us? Hope not!)

    Details received. Yay!!!

    And no, it was not Bif Tungsten. ;)
