Lemme ‘splain something to you. No, no… lemme ‘splain. As to why I do and post these surveys. It is because I am TOO LAZY TO THINK. However, I do find that some of the questions prompt me to think about what my world and self views are at the moment. So I’m filling them out. And I’m posting them. And you can skip them if you like.
1. Would you chew gum after someone else already has?
I have done this before – but I don’t think I have since high school. Wait – retract that. I don’t think I have done that intentionally
since high school. I may have inadvertently done it since. I remember once though… we were in some sort of hygiene class during grade nine PE and a friend turned to me and whispered, "Does your gum still have any flavour?" I replied in the affirmative, so she asked if she could have it. I shrugged my shoulders and gave it to her. She chewed it for a bit and declared the gum devoid of flavour. I asked if she still wanted it. She didn’t, and gave it back to me. I popped it back in my mouth. During a personal hygiene class.
Although we weren’t trying to be funny, the look on Mr. Ingstrup’s face was pretty priceless.
2. What describes your relationship status?
I’m definitely single.
3. Who was your last call from?
The treadmill delivery man. And OH BOY was that funny. He spoke very limited English. I speak extremely limited Korean. He finally asked "your address?" to which I could reply "moo-lie-oh" which means "I don’t know". He must have thought I was an idiot. Good thing I had Mira’s (a Korean coworker) number and SHE knew my address.
4. Are you a heart breaker, or the broken heart?
I think I’m usually the broken heart, even if I’m the one calling it off.
5. Ever been skinny dipping?
No, but I have been ice swimming. Highly invigorating.
6. Earrings or necklace?
Usually both. Sometimes neither.
7. Who have you talked to most today?
So far, only the treadmill delivery guy (dudes, it is only 9:30am on a Saturday), who told me I was beautiful although the adjective he was looking for was "hung over". His English wasn’t great.
8. Ever been truly in love?
I certainly think so!
9. Friend that lives closest to you?
I think Stef would be the closest.
10. Color of your shirt?
I have many shirts. I suppose this is referring to the one I am currently wearing. It is blue and yellow.
11. How many years have you taken a language?
I studied French from grade 4 through first year university…. so nine years?
12. Who’s on speed dial 2?
It is Brookler! Although I always forget about speed dial and never use it…
13. What color is your background on your computer mainscreen?
Let me minimize this screen and have a look… It is many colours. It is a picture of a tree full of lanterns from Buddha’s birthday bash last year.
14. Do you wish on 11:11?
I don’t. But every time it is 2:30 I think of Cayman Duncan and the worst joke ever told.
15. Good advice if you ever go camping?
<Disclaimer: This is a bad joke. Skip this one if you don’t feel like some cheese.>
You should always bring a deck of cards with you. That way if you are lost in the woods, you can start playing solitaire. You know that eventually some asshole will have to pop by and say, "Did you know you can play that red jack on the black queen" and you will be saved.
16. Are you a bad influence?
You know, I think I am. But I also think I can be a good influence. It depends on how much evilness or love I feel like spreading around. It also depends on if I want you to ALSO spend a bunch of money so I don’t feel as badly about the money *I* am spending. Speaking of which… I wonder if I can convince Stef to go to the electronics market today….
17. What color are your eyes?
Green and brown, hanging out together. They are very green though if I cry. Sometimes, they the brown part turns gold. I haven’t figured out though how to make that happen.
18. Would you rather have your name or your sibling(s)’ name?
I really can’t imagine what my life would be like if my name was "Brian".
19. Would you do anything for someone?
No, but I would try to convince them to do anything for me.
20. Have you ever been called a bitch?
I actually think this happened last night, but it was in good fun. I don’t know if I have ever been seriously called a bitch. I’m more of an asshole.
21. Favourite color?
22. Do you use smiley faces on the computer?
I try not to. I try to express myself through my words. But sometimes, alas, you need an emoticon to make sure the retards reading your words understand that you don’t really think they are retarded. 🙂
23. What song is on?
"Hours" by TV on the Radio. I can’t get enough of the drum beat in it… it is amazing. It sounds like the drum is… is… chasing itself. I dig it most supreme.
24. Are your grades good?
This should be "Were your grades good?" and then I could answer it.
25. Do you ever think people hate you for filling these out?
Hate me for it? No. Do I think people would rather I would just get off my lazy ass and actually blog? Perhaps. Then again, I’m not sure anyone reads these stupid surveys anyway.
26. Would you date anyone on your top friends?
Is it horrendously bad that I know that this is referring to MySpace? What has become of us? And the answer is no.
27. Does your best friend(s) have a myspace?
A few of them are on MySpace
, but Mike is too cool for that. (He’s on Facebook
now though – HA!) You should also join one or both of these sites so I have more virtual friends and will look cool.
28. Whose page did you visit last?
Stef’s MySpace… and you can blame HER
for this survey!
29. Last time you went out to lunch?
Probably last weekend… no… oh dear! During the week I’ve been golden and eating my free lunches at the school. Last weekend I didn’t eat on Saturday (because we were going out for all-you-can eat that night) and Sunday I was so hung over I didn’t even wake up until dinner time. I think Stef and I will have lunch together today in Seoul.
30. Do you watch the Gilmore Girls?
31. Have you ever enjoyed listening to Jack Johnson?
Is this a trick question? Wait! Actually… I think I have one song that he sings – one of my 300 Christmas carols. Lemme check… yep. He does a version of Rudolf that is actually pretty catchy (but not as good as Dolly’s).
32. Have you ever seen or enjoyed watching the O.C.?
I can only think of one person that watches the OC, and I don’t think Colin wants the world at large to know about his lame-ass TV preferences. (I feel like I should put a smiley face here but now I feel all self-conscious about doing that.)
33. Do you have one or more Britney Spears C.D.s?
These are trick questions to make me admit to sucking, aren’t they? Or is this a survey for 14 year old girls??
34. Which radio stations are your favorites?
I don’t usually listen to the radio, but I do dig last.fm
. It pays attention to what I listen to in iTunes and then recommends new music to me.
35. Are you a "Lost" fanatic?
I’ve never seen it. I don’t plan on seeing it.
36. Still have pictures of your ex?
I do. Actually, because I get asked about Mike so much (I talk about him a lot – we may not be together anymore but the dude is still my best friend and utterly kick-ass) I have a picture of him in my wallet.
37. Do you have a song by Ozzy Osbourne in your library?
I don’t, but that’s nothing against Ozzy.
38. Alanis Morisette?
I don’t, but I’m not a huge fan. I don’t hate her… I don’t love her.
39. Do you watch Family Guy regularly?
I don’t, but I find it freaking funny.
40. King of the Hill?
No, but I did back home because it was on right (before or after… I forget) the Simpsons.
41. Do you read trashy romance novels often?
What the hump? No! I have read one in the past though. When my boyfriend Scott was having his appendix out, I was stuck in the hospital with nothing to do or read over night. I was too worried to sleep (it was an emergency appendix removal deal. I know there is a word for the operation. I can’t spell it) so I stayed up all night reading a romance novel (the only thing available). It sucked donkey balls.
42. Do you sing obnoxiously in the car?
I love taking long road trips by myself simply so I can smoke cigars and sing at the top of my freaking lungs with my tunes. It is the only time I feel really safe doing that, as I’m not a very good singer.
43. Do you ever sing obnoxiously in the shower?
I like singing in the shower, but I don’t do it here. See, instead of a proper ventillation system, there is just an opening from my bathroom to the hallway of my apartment building (It is above the cabinet and no one could see it, calm down). I can hear someone cough out there when I am peeing so I’m sure they would be able to hear me singing. I don’t want to subject people to that.
44. Have you ever watched a little kid’s show?
What the sweaty hell? This is a retardedly worded question. If you mean "ever" then YES, of course. WHEN I WAS A LITTLE KID. Who didn’t? But if you mean now… well, I don’t watch them in Korea (the Simpsons may be animated, but I don’t think it is a kid’s show) and I never woke up early enough to catch them back home.
45. Have you ever pretended your crush was with you when they weren’t?
Dude, that is NOT COOL. That’s creepy. Ew!
46. Did you draw pictures for your first crush back in elementary?
Of course not. Just like today, I would have never reveal to someone that I had a crush on them back then.
47. Have you ever liked a girl/boy but didn’t ask her/him out.
I don’t have Batman’s number. If you do, let me know and he will be the first crush that I will pretend I am with when I am not; draw a picture for; and call and ask out. (I will also accept Jack Bauer’s number).
48. Have you ever written a poem or story about your life?
49. Have you ever spent over an hour thinking about nothing but a certain person?
Oh man, how I hate to have to admit to that. You know what I won’t admit to? Who it was.
50. Have you ever liked someone solely because of their appearance?
Oh man, how I to have to admit…. HA HA! I’m just kidding. I can’t even imagine being with someone just because of how they look. I dig dudes that are hot and
have a brain in his head.
51. Do you eat all the servings in the food groups on a daily basis?
I seriously doubt that I eat all the servings in the food groups on a weekly
basis. No wonder I’m sick all the freaking time.
52. Are you ever a freak about cleanliness or organization?
I am… but it is sporatic. I go through bursts where I MUST have everything clean and organized. Then I’m a slob. Then I clean and organize again. Wait a moment… isn’t this part of the behaviour pattern of a serial killer? Yikes.
53. Have you ever been to South America or Africa?
Not yet, but Africa is on the list for after the UK (I figure that should be about 2010 and I can catch the World Cup there).
54. Do you know how to knit?
Guess what, ya bastards: I DO know how to knit. Betcha never saw THAT coming, didja?
55. Do you have a cell phone or iPod with a patterned cover?
Heck no, I don’t. But I do have my iPod engraved. It says, "I caught you a delicious bass".
56. Have you ever written love song lyrics yourself?
Nope. I’ve tried to write songs (with my guitar) but they just seem so… forced. So I stopped.
57. Do you keep a diary or journal online?
This is my journal. And this is as much disclosure as I would put on "paper", so to speak. I’m not big on weeping and moaning into a diary. Never have been.
58. When you open your closet, what is the dominant color of your clothing?
All my clothes are currently on the floor. Lots of dark colors and denim.
59. Baskin Robbins or Coldstone?
What the hell is Coldstone? I do get to BR often in Korea, but I never did back home.
60. Physics or chemistry?
Chemistry. Here’s something about myself that I shouldn’t share: When I was still doing chemistry (like, in high school) I used to make up my own chemical equations to balance. I loved doing it and did it in my free time. There was just something so satisfying about having both sides of the equal sign match and taking something seemingly so complex and making it so simple. Man, it has been a looong time since I’ve done that… I don’t think I would even know how anymore. That’s sad.
61. Earphones or headphones?
Earphones are more convenient but headphones are more comfortable (and generally have better sound).
62. Pink or teal?
What? No no no no no. Pink? NO! Red! Teal? NO! Blue!
Side note: "Teal" gets its name from the colour surrounding the eyes of the common teal, a member of the duck family (thank you, Wikipedia!).
63. Earrings or a ring?
Both, when I remember to put them in/on.
64. Commitment or casual dating?
How commited? How casual? I hate questions like these because they leave so many perameters open. I mean, in Korea, there is no way I would want a commited relationship; I’m leaving. But doing nothing but casual dating for the rest of time seems really weak. And is this question referring to the past, the present, or the future? Is it what I have had, have, or will have? Because then the answer is yes, no, and yes again. Is it what I have wanted, want now, or would want? Then the answer is yes, yes please, and yes.
65. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings or Star Wars?
I liked all of these movies.
66. Last person you apologized to?
The treadmill guys for not knowing my own address like an idiot.
Not my favourite coffee, but the best I can seem to do in Korea.
68. What is your favorite Disney movie?
The Brave Little Toaster is my all-time favorite, although Aladdin also has a special place in my heart.
69. Have you ever bought clothing at Sears?
Your mom shops at Sears.
