listening to: the teevee – west wing
Duuude, Ainsley is listening to the Vivaldi 5th cello sonata! And Josh sent Donna flowers! …But…she told him to shove it. But…we all know she doesn’t mean it!
Dammit! Now me, too!
A – Act your age: Do I act my age? Hmm. The fact that I read Japanese comic books intended for 12-year olds speaks for itself. But on the other hand, I like Opera and politics. So I’d like to say that I am a delicate balance of mature and…youthful? Or just really confused.
B – Boyfriend: Eh, none. Heck, I don’t even have a pretend and/or river-god boyfriend like everybody else seems to. Mweh. Salright.
C – Chore you hate: Vaccuming. Yes. Grrar, dust-sucking.
D – Dad’s name: Michael
E – Essential make up item: Er…really, none. I just…don’t…wear make-up. Ever. Unless it’s for performance purposes, like with madrigals.
F – Favourite actor: Um…I don’t have many particular favorite acting…people. Maybe Tobey Maguire. Or Bradley Whitford. Can’t think of many females, currently.
G – Gold or silver: Silver
H – Hometown: Normal for 17 years. Toledo, OH (birthplace), for 1, but I can’t exactly remember that.
I – Instruments you play: Primarily cello. Others include (and these are serious things I’ve worked on, not just like…random “I’ve touched them and played two notes” instruments) piano, jazz bass, mandolin, voice. I reeeeally hopelessly want to learn to play the accordion. Really.
J – Job title: Er…student?
K – Kids: I…like kids when they don’t belong to my cello teacher, and i don’t have to babysit them.
L – Living arrangements: One incredibly loud and obnoxious performing arts floor, in a not-too-shabby room filled with mine and Hillari’s endless amounts of stuff.
M – Mum’s name: Judith
N – Number of people you’ve slept with: Seeing as I’m me, none.
O – Overnight hospital stays: You know, I’ve never had any weird/serious injuries that have required me to go to a hospital.
P – Phobia: Silverfish. Definitely silverfish.
Q – Quote you like: Long–skip if already bored, which you probably are (fyi, this was originally something I realized as an awesome quote through Jamie and Megan so…just remember that they are far more awesome than I).
“Bastian Balthazar Bux’s passion was books.
If you have never spent whole afternoons with burning ears and rumpled hair, forgetting the world around you over a book, forgetting cold and hunger-
If you have never read secretly under the bedclothes with a flashlight, because your father or mother or some other well-meaning person has switched off the lamp on the plausible ground that it was time to sleep becuase you had to get up so early-
If you have never wept bitter tears because a wonderful story has come to an end and you must take your leave of the characters with whom you have shared so many adventures, whom you have loved and admired, for whom you have hoped and feared, and without whose company life seems empty and meaningless-
If such things have not been part of your own experience, you probably won’t understand what Bastian did next.”
–The Neverending Story, Michael Ende

T – Time you wake up?: 6:30 M-T, 8 F, Whenever on Sat&Sun. Usually some time after 9.
U – Unique habit: I make really strange and shrill noises when I’m frustrated or silly. And they make people laugh. Or…stare at me.
V – Vegetable you refuse to eat: I’m not big on asparagus.
W – Worst habit: I procrastinate doing eeeverythiiing. And I have this tendency to obsess with time, a lot.
X – X-rays you’ve had: Only dental stuff.

Z – Zodiac sign: Virgo. Just barely. But yes.
And that is that.
