We'll start with some easy questions.
Ryan, I just knew you'd make it difficult for me, but of course I'm always up for the challenge! 1. Do you like to shoot pool/billiards?
Yes, I love it! My brother actually plays pool competitively and is at the top of his league, so I've learned a thing or two from him. Actually, you can't beat an evening of pool, a few cold bevvies, with good tunes on the jukebox. 2. How would you describe your use of things like shampoo and hairspray?
a) I use half of the bottle. Then I start another one.
b) I use the whole bottle until it runs out. Then I buy some in the next day or two or borrow some from a friend.
c) I use the whole bottle until it runs out, but I have a new one ready to go when that happens.
I would have to go with C for shampoo. I generally use the same stuff because I've learned through trial and error what works best with my hair type. No hairspray for me... I like to be able to comb through it several times a day and a whack of hairspray would be defeating the purpose.
(Okay, so much for the easy questions
)3. What color is the underwear you have on as you're reading this?
Black... and that's about all I'm wearing.
You asked! 4. You've offered to let a friend take your Vespa for a lengthy joyride. Later that day your friend comes back and thanks you. As your friend leaves, you notice a scratch on the tank that absolutely was not there. The friend had said nothing about it. How do you react?
a) I say "halt!" and demand to know how the scratch got there.
b) I politely ask the friend to come over to the Vespa for a moment and begin to talk about the scratch to see what the friend says.
c) I grab the not-so-friend by the hair and drag him/her over to the Vespa forcing the jerk into a butterfly kiss with the scratch. Then I ask if the jerk sees anything.
d) I don't say anything to the friend, but I never call the friend again.
e) I bring the scratch up the next time the friend calls.
f) I don't worry about the scratch and don't mention it to the friend.
g) I don't worry about the scratch, but I mention it to the friend anyway.
Okay, my option wasn't there (never lend ANYONE your scooter!
), so I would likely choose A, although C gave me a good laugh! 5. How did you feel when the friend was walking away and was not going to tell you about the scratch?
a) I think the friend might not have noticed, so it doesn't matter.
b) I think the friend might not have noticed, and that makes me mad.
c) I think the friend was trying to get away with it, but it doesn't bother me much because it's just a scratch.
d) I think the friend was trying to get away with it and it makes me angry that the friend was not going to tell me.
Well... seeing as I would only lend one of my scoots to someone I trusted THOROUGHLY, which doesn't include a whole lot of people, I would have to go with A. My friends are an honest bunch, who I've actually trusted to look after my meowies, which is why I've kept them as friends. 6. Do you know what a butterfly kiss is?
Yeah... the last guy I dated (though NOT my last boyfriend) tried doing that and it totally turned me off seeing him after our fourth date.
7. Have you ever fallen in love with someone you weren't physically attracted to?
Although I was somewhat attracted to my last boyfriend when we first met, frankly I've been more physically attracted to other men. However, I didn't look at other men when I was with him (and I could have enjoyed the *ahem* company of a couple of really HOT men while we were together
), as there were a lot of positives in the relationship that I might not have been able to find with someone else. I loved him for his "true colours" as cliche as that may sound.
8. Have you ever wanted to take revenge for any personal wrongdoings towards you? Did you succeed? What happened?
No. If there's one thing I'm NOT, it's vengeful. That said, I've had people hold grudges against me for months or even years (including the ex boyfriend mentioned above). As I am direct with people, and don't have any hidden agenda/motives, I would expect reciprocation if they had concerns with some personal wrongdoing of mine. But alas, things don't always work that way and I think being passive-aggressive is a sad way to live life. 9. You're in a restaurant with a girlfriend. You came to this restaurant in particular becuase you were in the mood to order dessert after the meal. Your friend passes on dessert, but when yours comes, suddenly, (it's always suddenly in these questions) your friend asks you to split the dessert in half with her. You had an exceptionally light meal and really wanted the whole dessert. What do you do?
a) I'm glad that my friend wants to try. I know she will like it. "Waiter... extra fork for my friend please?"
b) I'm a little annoyed. NOW
she wants dessert? I tell her she can have some, but not half.
c) I'm a little annoyed, but I give her half and try to act natural.
d) I laugh and say, "No way Jose!"
e) I get haughty and say, "Fine!!! Have the whole darn thing why don't you!?"
f) I pretend that I am full and insist that she has the whole dessert.
g) I catch the waiter and ask for an identical dessert for my friend.
h) I start crying.
I liked the last one...
I was hoping my answer would come up in this multiple choice question since the options were running out... and it DID!
I would choose G, because obviously if she's hungry enough for dessert, she's having her own... and we're both going to enjoy that moment and feel guilty together later.
Great questions, Ryan.
