50 something or rather

oh, this is so myspace or livejournal, but one won’t hurt. if PLV and michael alesich can do it, then i can too…

1. Do you like blue cheese?
i like all cheese, some blue depending on how strong it is. but i prefer stilton, camembert, brie and saganaki

2. Have you ever smoked a cigarette?
yes, only really when extremely drunk. usually i’m like “it’s bad, m’kay?” but then when drunk.. well, let’s just say i have to be really drunk and it ends in headspins and talking into ceramic telephones..

3. Do you own a gun?
no. I cite Charlton Heston as one of my many reasons for gun control.

4. What flavor do you add to your drink at Sonic?
i have no idea what Sonic is, but i’ll drink most things apart from beer.

5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments?
depends on my symptoms

6. Do you like hot-dogs?
i like vegesausages and not-dogs, being vegetarian and all.

7. Favorite Christmas Song?
i don’t believe in christmas, but if i have to choose i’ll laughingly choose “funky funky christmas” by nkotb! haha, see you’re humming it already, aren’t you!

8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
hair o’ the dog

9. Can you do push-ups?
as long as it’s something weighing less than me

11. What’s your favorite piece of jewelry?
i have a number of favourites, but the ones i wear most are a ring with a red glass “stone” that my mother gave me – she was given it by a boyfriend many years ago – and the diamond ring my parents, grandma, granddad, grandma & uncle pitched in for for my 21st birthday.

12. Favorite hobby?
photography – though it’s my living and my passion and probably hobby is too mild a word for it.

13. Do you work with people who idolize you?
not yet. maybe one day.

jealousy and lack of self-confidence, though i’m working on both.

my most recent worry was financial but my tax return will resolve that. so right now i’m not so worried. give me 48 hours and the next one will hit.

20. Current hate right now?
people who say they will do something but can’t even manage to read emails that explain what they need to do and complain that basic elements of a responsibility they agree to taking on are “excessive”. le sigh.

London, I’m homesick

22. How did you bring in New Years?
with my parents at their neighbour’s place. it was nice to be amongst people but still be switched off.

London, and no doubt so many more places I’ve yet to visit. graveyards are a constant though.

arguing with people. i blame it on working in places where bullying is standard and from being afraid to say what i think, though i am possibly the most outspoken person i know.

25. Introvert or extrovert?
depends on how well i know you and the mood i’m in. i might not have the confidence to look you in the eye on public transport, but you might think i’m snobbing you. i might talk your ear off if i feel a kinship.
