2a. Which fairytale story, heroine, hero, villian, sidekick or theme do you most identify? (I included the list because they are often 'archtypal' and run through many tales in a similar vein.)

2b. Again, why?

PS: I really am awake this time.
1a&b, kinda rambly. I always loved Sleeping Beauty, but all those fairy tales are so horrifying now. My favorite story was always The Velveteen Rabbit (original version) and The Little Bunny Who Wanted Red Wings. Those are much happier. The Little Bunny one is about wanting to be different and then realizing everyone loves you as you are. Still a good story!

2a. F Scott Fitzgerald said there are only two stories in the whole world: Jack the Giant Killer, and Cinderella. It's so true. But I'll have to go with Tinkerbelle.

2b. I always find myself with a bunch of friend-boys that remind me of the Lost Boys, and also if nobody believes in me I tend to die (figuratively of course).

Do you take your vitamins every morning?

Are you a plant person?

A bunch of us are coming to dinner. What are we eating? drinking? is the house clean?

Would you rather sleep in the same bed with someone with poison ivy or sleep in the bottom bunk of creaking bunk beds with a 400-pound man in the top bunk?

What is harder to get out of: bed or shower/bath?

Which is worse: A guy next to you on a plane that won't stop snoring, or a baby on the plane that won't stop crying?

Which is worse: A) a bad picture on your passport or B) a bad picture on your yearbook?

Do you feel naked for the rest of the day if you forget to put your watch on in the morning?

Do you cut your sandwiches or just eat them whole?

Do you break things when you are angry?

Do ants invade your house every summer?

If you see a spider near you, but lose track of where it goes, do you start to feel itchy?

Would you rather have your own private jet or your own private yacht?

Do you prefer answering or asking questions?

post #34 of 43
Well, my finals are over! So keep the questions coming, I don't know what to do with myself without having to study all day or do homework!



Do you take your vitamins every morning?
Not every morning. I do take a Oneaday nearly every day, and I also have those Viactiv calcium chocolates, and Emergen-C (if you've never had one, try it-- it's a packet you mix with water and it fizzes and cures hangover and makes you feel better with Vit C and a bunch of Bs).

Are you a plant person?
I wish I could have a plant, but as I often say to Zissou, "We just can't have nice things around you!". She thinks anything she wants to eat is her food.

A bunch of us are coming to dinner. What are we eating? drinking? is the house clean?
The house is moderately clean. You are drinking pinot grigio or tea or dr pepper, and we're probably gonna eat mashed potatoes and salad and maybe, just maybe, I would attempt some sort of meat thing.

Would you rather sleep in the same bed with someone with poison ivy or sleep in the bottom bunk of creaking bunk beds with a 400-pound man in the top bunk?
Poison ivy, I'm not allergic to it. Plus you can't be crushed to death by it anyway.

What is harder to get out of: bed or shower/bath?
Shower. Min. 20 minutes for me!

Which is worse: A guy next to you on a plane that won't stop snoring, or a baby on the plane that won't stop crying?
Snoring makes me murderously angry. I can deal with a baby, I would just be pretty irritable after a long flight with that.

Which is worse: A) a bad picture on your passport or B) a bad picture on your yearbook?
Yearbook. Nobody cares about your passport picture, but people look through yearbooks and that picture is how they'll remember you.

Do you feel naked for the rest of the day if you forget to put your watch on in the morning?
Sometimes. I keep looking at my empty wrist.

Do you cut your sandwiches or just eat them whole?
Whole. I eat the crust off first, and then work on the circle in the middle. My mommie used to cut them into hearts or circles and such when I was little.

Do you break things when you are angry?
Once. I threw all my cd cases and a bunch of books at the wall. I was really mad, but I was the only one in the room and then I cleaned it up. I don't throw stuff at people or anything.

Do ants invade your house every summer?
I don't know yet, fingers crossed!

If you see a spider near you, but lose track of where it goes, do you start to feel itchy?
Yes!!! Or even if I put it outside, I still feel itchy.

Would you rather have your own private jet or your own private yacht?
Ew. Neither. I don't like flying, and I get scared on a boat if I'm in a cabin.

Do you prefer answering or asking questions?
Answering.

Favorite Beauty product?
Aveda's chapstick

Favorite cleaning product?
Windex!

favorite thing hanging on your wall right now? and please post a pic
Don't have a camera. But I'm gonna go with my senior art project, which is a bunch of headlines about how the war in Iraq would be disaster and then is a white dove which flies across and slowly turns into a F-117 Nighthawk. It's actually a light display thing, it should be hung a few feet out from the wall with a light in front of it, and the dove/plane flies on the wall.

How many blankets do you have on your bed right now?
One sheet, one blanket, one comforter. As always, even in summer. My body shuts down when I'm asleep.

Favorite room in your house/apartment?
Well I've only two. Probably my living room though.

Favorite magazine?
Rolling Stone

What color towels do have in your bathroom - are they all matched ?
Orange and orange and pink handtowels, and a teally-colored flowery thing for my bath towel. They match the crazy Hawaiian theme, complete with one of those hula girls that goes on your dashboard. She's on the sink.

Do you recycle?
The city doesn't recycle unless I drag it all a couple blocks down the sidewalk to the few bins that exist.

What's at the end of the rainbow?
Like, death? I think whatever an individual person believes is what happens to them.

Congrats on finishing your finals!

There is a weird metaphysical upheavel, and you are suddenly turned in a Fairy. Pick your fairy form (height, appearance, clothes, any fairy gadgets).

Why did you become vegetarian?

You don't have to answer if that's too personal. Also, I'm glad I'm not the only one who moos at cows as I pass by them.

Oh, fun! Promise?

I would be about 3 ft tall (a little over half my height now), very skinny, and have hair that was stripes of silver, gold, and red. My eyes would be bright purple, and I would have really pointy ears and a long neck. My clothes would be green tights, pointy gold shoes, a pink ballet sweater, and a white miniskirt that was pleated and had eyelets. I would carry a patchwork leather satchel full of all kinds of crazy stuff. And my wings would be really pointy and sparkly white. I would leave a weird green glitter mark on everything I touched. And dissapear in flames anytime I wanted.

And Zissou would turn into a silver-striped griffin who could breathe ice, and she would always stay by my side. She can also dissapear with me, but in snow instead of flames. That way we don't catch anything on fire.

And we would live in a treehouse in the rainforest.

Ooooooh, pretty. Is your (fairy) hair curly or straight, or stands on end?

When I was sixteen, I realized I felt sick all the time. I quit eating meat partially as a diet thing (yes, I was already too skinny, shhh) and after a week I realized I felt so much better, I never started eating meat again. My skin was always very red-tinted, and my hands would get all blotchy on my palms, and so would my face if I cried or ran or was cold. When I quit eating meat, my skin turned not quite such a gross red color and I never got all blotchy anymore. I honestly don't think my sister or I were ever meant to eat meat. It makes us both sick. Also, your chances of getting IBD are less if you are a vegetarian, and both my parents have it...
Plus, there's the fact that it is completely ecologically irresponsible. It takes 100 times the energy to create meat than it does grain. For one thing, instead of growing crops for humans, we grow crops to feed the animals that we then kill and eat. Eating meat destroys way more land and resources than not eating meat.
And with all the crap that is in meat in America today, there's just no way. The higher up on the food chain you are, the more polluted your food source. When you eat meat, you're eating a concentrate of all the environmental crud that animal was around in its life, plus any meat not grown organically is almost always full of antibiotics and artificial hormones, because it has to be the way they raise it or all the livestock would die of disease from being cramped together wading in each other's waste.
The FDA and other regulatory agencies are too far in each others pockets for me to actually trust when they say its okay to consume all that stuff.
And yes, I do, in fact, buy all my produce organic.

That said, I never try to convince anyone else they should be a vegetarian beyond an occasional "you should try being a vegetarian" if they say they want to go on a diet or the topic comes up somehow. That's just annoying.

Stick straight, and very long. Maybe to the end of my ribs? (Well, long on a three foot tall person.

Poison ivy, I'm not allergic to it.

2. Maybe in August? I don't know. I rather like my birthday where it is though.

3. Aquarius or Pisces... they'll be born on the 18th, we all are.
