50 Question meme  
I hear this meme is going around LJ right now. I got it from earthmother45. It's like an interview questionnaire.



1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?

No, just have a unique name.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?

Oh not this again. Funny I just talked about this because I had some friends crying for silly reasons. Depends how you define cry. If it's just tears regardless of reason then last night. I get my nightly salty tears that sting. As far as emotional crying about 2 years ago when my pigeon Punkin died. When it comes to emotional crying I don't really do it. It just doesn't happen for me. I do cry for physical pain and I think that's just normal. I had one of those cries more recently. Although broken computers or video games are good reasons to cry, but any nerd would think that.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?

EE Gad no! My writing is terrible.



Wrote this on Dec 11, 2008

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?

Smoked turkey

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?

No and never will. I like being free and resent I have lost friends that had kids.

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?

That's a vauge questions. Depends on the kind of person I would be and personality. I don't like INFP's for example and they don't like me so that would be the same. If I were an INTP, ENTJ or ISTJ then yes I would like me. Provied we were of like mind.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?

I don't know. You think? :P

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?

Yes.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?

No, because of my back. But I would like some extreme sports if I were still healthy. Like hang gliding. Actually I'd love to fly an ultralite with some of my birds like my pigeons.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?

Raisin Bran.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?

Nope. I tie them once and if they last a year then I've done a good job. I shouldn't have to tie my shoes more than once a year or it's annoying. Once broken in I can slip tennis shoes on and off. I prefer to wear flip flops if I can when it's not cold too. It's too bad they don't make velcro shoes like they did in the 80's. I hate tying my shoes. I never even learned the proper way to do it when I was a kid. I made up my own knot.

12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?

No way. I'm as wimpy as Mr. Burns hehe. I need people to open sodas and some doors for me.

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?

Cookies and Cream with chocolate sprinkles.

14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?

I don't notice people. In fact recently Chris was laughing about that. When I drew the faces on the target one guy really loved them and got a kick out of it. I told Chris I enjoyed making the bearded hairy guy laugh. He had red hair and looked like Scottish. He's like WTF? That guy was bald like a skin head no beard. Who knows what color his hair was. REALLY? Boy if I had been describing a criminal the cops would have been after the wrong guy. I don't look people directly in the eye either unless I know them well so I don't notice what people look like. I'm just not interested in other people. And then my mind fills in the blanks without me knowing it like this case.

15. RED OR PINK?

Depends. Like what kind of pink? If it's hot 80's florescent pink then yes. If it's gross girly or pepto bismol pink no way! Yuck. Red has it's place. It's great for Christmas and Cardinal birds. But the reds (pink is light red) just aren't my favorite colors. I'm a fan of blues and greens.

16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?

I don't know. That I lose my voice when I get angry and can't argue as well in real time as in writing? Maybe. Oh, I know. My back problems. It would be amazing all I could do if I got rid of that and was normal again.

17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?

Right now I miss being on the ship. I want to go somewhere new again. I miss growing gourds. I miss raising moths. That's all I can think of for now. Oh and I miss my birds Joel, Phage and Punkin.

18. WHAT IS THE SPARK FEATURE THAT HAS HELPED YOU THE MOST?

I have no idea what this question is getting at.

19. WHAT COLOR SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?

Black sandals.

20. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?

Turkey sandwich and French onion soup.

21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?

Nothing at the moment as far as music. Budgies are screaming.

22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?

Green Blue. I don't think they make that anymore but that was my favorite color. Blue Green was different. I preferred Green Blue. Here's the only pic I could find of my second fave.

23. FAVORITE SMELLS?

Smell is my weakest sense so I don't know. I love the smell of citrus flowers. Oh what a wonderful scent.

24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?

I don't use the phone really but today I just did. My friend Oceania who I haven't talked to in forever. It was nice. She called to say Happy Thanksgiving and I filled her in on what's been going on.

25. MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY OR BEACH HOUSE?

Hard choice. I think mountain hideaway as long as it wasn't too high and cold. Like a mountain in the tropics. Then I could own highland nepenthes. How about both I could keep the lower landers on the beach and the highlanders in the mountain.

26. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?

None. I hate sports. I'm a nerd. It's a waste of time.

27. HAIR COLOR?

I have dark brown hair.

28. EYE COLOR?

Green

29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?

Yes I love contacts. I don't like heavy glasses on my face and that you can't see my pretty face.

30. FAVORITE FOOD?

Seafood.

31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?

Scary movies easily. I hate happy endings and most are just so unrealistic. I like strife, misery and woe in my movies and stories.

32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?

Monsters University. Just got it on DVD.

33. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?

Coral. It's not pink but a light orange. Coral.

34. SUMMER OR WINTER?

Summer easily. I don't like cold. But I do love Christmas.

35. HUGS OR KISSES?

Hugs though only from Chris. I'm not a touchy feely person. Don't touch me.

36. FAVORITE DESSERT?

Keylime pie or Lemon Meringue pie

37. STRENGTH TRAINING OR CARDIO?

Neither. I like walking and light running.

38. COMPUTER OR TELEVISION?

Computer easily. I gave up TV ages ago. And I collect DVD's so I can watch shows and movies whenever I feel like. We canceled our cable a few years ago. They keep pestering us to get it back.

39. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?

Three books. SAS Survival Handbook, Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims and Chicken Gardens.

40. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?

Ha, it's not a real mouse pad. I'm using my own art on a clipboard since I'm on the laptop and my monitor on my main computer is broken. But I was using a sims 3 mouse pad before that.

41. ANY TATTOOS?

No. I respect myself too much for that. I live by the Bible's mandate to not defile your body in such a manner.

42. FAVORITE SOUND?

I don't know. I love the sound sandhill cranes make. Oh do I love hearing that.

43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?

Kalmah

44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?

Europe. Went there back in 1991.

45. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?

I have many talents. I am awesome. I can draw, write and play music. And I can raise some difficult to grow plants.

46. WHERE WERE YOU BORN?

Ohio.

47. WHERE ARE YOU LIVING NOW?

Florida.

48. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR HOUSE?

Ugly white and brown. I hope to change that sometime to a bright blue.

49. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR CAR?

Black.

50. ANY PETS?

HAHA haha uh. Just a few. Only about 15 pigeons, 7 chickens, 10 budgies 9 cockatiels or so. I have not bought any pets since the chickens in 2010. I'm trying to downsize but sometimes birds fly into my life or are given to me. Oh and my snake Chopin.
Oh and I think I own around 50 nepenthes plants. They are carnivorous so they are kind of like pets.

I think I'm going to have to steal that quiz for my livejournal. I need to post in it more often. I've been getting lazy. I didn't even post about the Southern Christmas Show last week.
Des: Nepenthes lowiithagirion on November 26th, 2013 06:31 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'd love to see you answer these. Hum, I should have mentioned on the last question my 50 or so nepenthes since they are almost like animals and pets.
actipton80actipton80 on November 26th, 2013 07:12 pm (UTC)
Aw, crap I forgot to mention Pet Plant. Maybe I should go back and edit.
Des: Nepenthes bicalcaratathagirion on November 26th, 2013 07:28 pm (UTC)
Yes editing is a great feature. Definitely do it. I will edit mine now.

I liked your answering of the meme. You had trouble with just the same questions as I would have done, had I chosen to do it (which I didn't).

Funny, I have bad handwriting, too, yet we are good at art. How is that?

Funny, I don't notice what people are wearing. It just doesn't interest me. I do look at their faces, though. Often I will remember a face but not a name.

Like you, I prefer a mountain hideaway (like the one I'm in) rather than the beach. I like visiting the beach, however, but wouldn't want to live there.

I would love to read Chicken Gardens. Dad has his chickens locked up at the moment due to predators, but I would love to create a chicken garden out there for him. I would plant small trees , bushes and plants that produce seeds for them eg tagasaste (if it doesn't turn into a weed out there) or some kind of wattle (Gyro said that his chooks in Tassie ate their seeds), canary, millet, amaranth, chick weed etc. Dad does have some chook in chook tractors under trees and he moves them every day.

I love seafood, too, and craved it when I was sick, so I did eat some. Bananas are my outright favoutite.

And I'm glad you didn't forget Chopin in your pet list. I thought you were going to forget him there for a minute!

Yeah the one about the spark? I don't know what they are asking. Kind of a dumb question.

Yes, I have wondered that many times too. I think drawing or art must be a different part of the brain than writing. You'd think writing is a type of drawing but I've never been good at it.

Yes that's how I feel about the beach too.

I'm still in the first chapter and it's a nice book. The pics are the best part. Those all sound like good plants.

Yes seafood is so yummy but not everyone can do it I have noticed.

Yeah, Chopin's a sweet snake. My least demanding pet so it would be easy to forget it.

I hate bothering with tying my shoes, too! I slide in and out of sneakers all the time.

Blues and greens are my favorites as well.

That's funny how you described the guy totally wrong to Chris. Just shows how different people notice different things.
Des: Des walkingthagirion on November 27th, 2013 10:37 pm (UTC)
Yes it's annoying and a waste of time to tie shoes.

Awesome. Glad you like those too.

I didn't really look at him so my mind made stuff up. That's crazy.
