Meme of 35

From the respected and lovely [profile] qe2

You're on my Friends List. I want to know 35 things about you. I don't care if we never talk, or if we already know everything about each other (or think we do). Short answers or long, whatever you want to say (or not) is cool. Copy from here and then repost in a comment. Then repost the empty questions on your LJ. You know. If you want to.

SPECIAL INVITATION TO LURKERS: Lurking is always okay here, so there's no obligation to participate, but it'd be lovely if you'd care to play. Answer as few or as many as you like. Or tell me something I didn't ask. Or hey, screw the meme and just say hi. :-)

And hey, if you've already answered this somewhere else, you needn't do it again here (although you're more than welcome to do so if you like). It'd be great, though, if you'd leave me a comment linking me to your elsewhere response. (If you're curious, mine is here.)

01) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
Two, to be exact. I've been with [personal profile] gramina for 12 years, [profile] abostick59 for 6.

02) What was your dream growing up?
I wanted to be a writer.

03) What talent do you wish you had?
Talent, as opposed to superpower? An infallible sense of direction.

04) If I bought you a drink, what would it be?
Tea or straight single-malt whiskey.

05) Favourite vegetable?
Whatever's ripest that I'm not allergic to. Corn on the cob is right up there, but then so is asparagus. And artichokes. And....

06) What was the last book you read?
What Lips My Lips Have Kissed: The Loves and Love Poems of Edna St. Vincent Millay by Daniel Mark Epstein.

07) What zodiac sign are you?
Leo with Gemini Rising and a Virgo Moon.

08) Any tattoos and/or piercings? What and where? (And why, if you'd like to tell.)
No tattoos; my skin is scarred and itchy enough. Two piercings in the left ear, one in the right.

09) Worst habit?
Procrastination.

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
Anywhere you wanted to go.

11) What is your favourite sport?
Baseball.

12) Are you naturally optimistic or pessimistic?
Born optimistic, learned pessimism.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
Check out the acoustics by singing.

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you (that you're willing to share here)?
My niece Diane's death ranks very high.

15) Tell me one weird thing about you.
I didn't learn to drive until I was 24, but now it's one of my greatest pleasures.

16) Do you have any pets?
Gabriel, Spawn of Satan. She's my cat, and I've had her for 11 years.

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly?
You'd be seriously lost -- I live 3000 miles away. But I'd be glad to invite you in.

18) What was your first impression of me?
Oooh, smart! (This was from comments in someone's LJ.)

19) Clowns: Cute or scary?
Annoying.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
I'd be a lot taller.

21) Would you be my partner in crime or my conscience?
Depends on what kind of crimes you want to commit. I'm always happy to break the sodomy laws.

22) What colour are your eyes?
Green on the inside, blue/grey on the outside.

23) Have you ever been arrested?
No, but I have come close.

24) Soda/beer: Bottle or can?
Diet Dr. Pepper in a can. The plastic bottles make it taste weird.

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?
Pay some debts and fix my car and live on it as long as I could.

26) What's your favourite place to hang out?
Other than home? The home of [personal profile] wild_irises and [profile] abostick59

27) Do you believe in ghosts?
I have seen them.

28) Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
Read.

29) Do you swear a lot?
Fuck yeah.

30) Biggest pet peeve?
People who drive without lights at dusk or in the rain.

31) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
Impassioned.

32) Do you believe in/appreciate romance?
Depends on what you mean by "romance." Sending me red roses is unlikely to do much for me. Taking me dancing would be torture. But the kind of romantic gesture based on actual knowledge of me can be very sweet.

33) Favourite and least favourite foods?
I survive on cheese. Celery would kill me.

34) Do you believe in God?
Yes, I do.

35) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?
Sure!
