Random Stuff About Me

I swiped this from #millenniallifecrisis, who swiped it from something called “Vogue’s 73 Questions”. I thought it had some fun and interesting questions, so I decided to do it myself.

So here’s mine:

  1. What was the name of the first person you ever had a crush on? Why did you like them? Jonathan Brandis. Honestly? I never learned or knew a damn thing about the actor, but I was totally enamored with his character Lucas on SeaQuest DSV. Not only was he so very cute, but smart and empathetic as well. He’s also the only celebrity crush I’ve ever had.
  2. What is one thing you regret having done or not done in your life? Getting my degree. That said, I’m not entirely sure why I regret this when I’m happy with my life the way it is and wouldn’t be using it anyway. It just seems like a waste that all that time , effort, and money that didn’t come to any sort of fruition.
  3. Which parent do you identify with the most? I used to think my mother, but as I’ve gotten older and gotten to know my mother more and more after my father’s death, I’ve come to realize that I take after my father. The need for balance. The moral compass. I may not agree with his ideas and behavior on many things, but beneath those differences, there is a similar stubborn foundation.
  4. What do you think you cook or bake the best? Teriyaki sauce. Rice.
  5. If you could change your first name what would it be? Leaf.
  6. Can you hula hoop? I have no idea. I’ve never tried.
  7. What embarrasses you the most in front of other people? When they cringe at my facial scar. I can handle the staring, but it bothers me when someone shirks from it, cringes, or grimaces.
  8. Have you considered running for president? HELL no.  
  9. If you had to choose one thing you were most passionate about, what would it be and why? Balance. With creativity coming in at a very close second.
  10. Who are you most envious of—real or fictional—and why? I don’t really envy other people. Situations, sometimes. But not people.
  11. Where is the most beautiful place on earth and why? Northwestern Washington state. You have mountains, lakes, rivers, rainforests, beaches, the ocean and lots of inlets. Lots of green, lots of water, lots of nature, and lots of rain.
  12. Are ghosts real? Yes. 
  13. Are aliens real? Yes. It is statistically impossible that they don’t exist. Whether or not they fly space ships or are intelligent (by human standards)? That’s debatable.
  14. How old is the most expired item in your fridge? Good thing you asked about the fridge and not the freezer. The most expired item in my fridge is a tub of gochujang that expired in Oct 2018. 
  15. What are your favorite style of underwear? Boxer briefs.
  16. What’s the saddest song you’ve ever heard? Mad World by Gary Jules and Michael Andrews. 
  17. How about the sweetest song? I Will Follow You Into The Dark by Death Cab For Cutie. 
  18. Do you know how to play dominoes? I do not.
  19. What’s under your bed? Boxes of antique dishes. 
  20. Have you ever prank called someone? I don’t think so. 
  21. 100 kittens or 3 baby sloths? If it means I have to take care of them? Sloths. 100 vs 3… it’s all in the math. 
  22. Are you proud of what you’re doing with your heart and time right now? I am proud that my heart belongs to Gideon. I’m happy with how I spend most of my time.
  23. Why or why not? As for my time… I guess I could be doing more good for myself and others, but I could be doing a hell of a lot less good too. It’s a happy medium. As for Gideon… he’s amazing. Top to bottom, inside and out.
  24. How many bones have you broken? I’ve lost count, although to be fair I’ve ‘broken’ more joints than I have bones.
  25. Have you ever won anything? Big or small? I won $15 bucks at the casino yesterday.
  26. If you could buy one material thing, and money was not an issue, what would it be? A larger home (or the condo next door and renovate it and mine into one big condo). 
  27. What’s your favorite movie from your childhood? Escape to Witch Mountain
  28. What food will you absolutely not, under any circumstances, eat? Sauerkraut.
  29. What’s the best way to comfort you when you’re having a really terrible day? Cuddles from my cat Luna and time with Gideon.
  30. Has anything/anyone every saved your life before? Yes.  
  31. Would you ever adopt a child? Under the right circumstances… yes. 
  32. What is one thing you’re embarrassed to admit you want to try? I can’t think of anything.
  33. If you were a cake which cake would you be? Raspberry vanilla swirl.
  34. What is the most important material possession you have and why? Pluto (stuffed dog). 
  35. What is the most important memory you have and why? My sister and I comforting each other after our first day of school. It had been a crappy experience for both of us.
  36. When was the last time you cried? Three days ago.
  37. How old was your mother when she had you? 26
  38. Which famous person would you like to be BFFs with? I can’t think of anyone. Fame really isn’t something I’m interested in being around. I guess I’d be open to a famous friend if I could be that secret refuge of normalcy for them, but otherwise? No thank you.
  39. Is there something you wish you had said sorry for but never did? I’m sure there are plenty of things I’d feel that way about if I could remember any of them.
  40. Have you been on your first date? Define “date”. *LOL* I have never been out on a “traditional date” (at least, not that I’m aware of) with the intention of it going anywhere besides a one night stand.
  41. If someone wanted to really understand you, what would they read, watch, and listen to? I think they could get a pretty good idea of me from my literary RP with Gideon, maybe with additional access to my IM history.
  42. Have you ever found a writer who thinks just like you? if so, who? Not entirely, no. Gid and I do have a good amount of synchronicity tho. And of course I run across writers now and then that I can agree with on certain topics or ideas.
  43. If you could, would you take back your last kiss? Hell no. I would never take back any kiss I’ve given to him.
  44. Who would you like to see in concert? I’m not a concert person. Too loud and chaotic.

  53. What color do you really want to dye your hair? I don’t.
  54. Are you a morning person? Hell no. 
  55. Tell us a story of something that happened to you after 3AM when you were with friends. Jer snores like a freight train when he’s drunk and I once used his gaping, snoring maw as target practice for my water pistol.
  56. Who was the last person you gazed at the stars with? My sister. 
  57. What was your biggest fear as a kid? is it the same today? Spiders. And hell yes.

  59. What are some of your worst habits? Self-judgment and self-recrimination.
  60. Describe a good friend of yours without using their name or gendered pronouns. Very submissive and yet really wants to be seen by others (read everyone) as more dominant than they really are. Has a good heart, but is too much of a self-absorbed ass.
  61. Is there anything you should be doing right now but aren’t? Fixing my mother’s CD burner drive on her PC.
  62. What’s one of the cutest things someone has ever done for you? Gideon enjoyed watching me splurge on a tarot deck the other day. I count this as done -for- me because his enjoyment made me feel good when he shared how he felt about it with me.
  63. Are you planning on getting tattoos? I have considered a small semicolon a few times, but no.
  64. List some songs that resonate to your soul whenever you hear them. The songs previously mentioned in this survey. Suicide is Painless by Johnny Mandel (music) and Michael Altman (lyrics). Knights In White Satin by the Moody Blues. One by Three Dog Night. Singularity by BTS. Now Is Good by Kim JaeJeong. I could go on for a long ass time on this one.
  65. If you were presented with two buttons, one that allows you to go 5 years into the past, the other 5 years into the future, which one would you press? Neither. There is nothing I would change, and I have no interest in looking ahead.
  66. What do you do when you’re sad? Sleep
