meme (for the real post, skip down one)

...okay. deb r is fabulous with the early saturday morning memes (kind of like cartoons. and if you want to laugh, go visit. she's HI-larious.) and if you want to read my post of what i'm actually feeling, it's here, but i really wanted to distract myself a bit. so, i tagged myself to do her meme, and here we go.

Someone knocks on your door at 2am, who do you want it to be?...met has keys to my apartment. i've often thought i'd love to be sleeping and have him crawl in next to me, but that hasn't happened yet. but i don't want anybody to be knocking.

Your boss tells you he/she will give you a $20 raise if you'll do your job naked. Do you stay and take the raise? ooh. because i don't really consider my "job" to be a "job", it's "work". my "job" is what i'm training myself to do through school - ie: write. so if somebody wanted to pay me $20 an hour to write naked in my apartment, why - hells yes! but no, i wouldn't work cash at a grocery store naked. thanka you very much.

Put yourself in a nutshell. met's fatally allergic to nuts. so, no.

Ever see a ghost? yes. many. but not since i was 13 or so.

Happy with your body? erm. you know, i guess so. most of the time i'm happy with it. i like that i'm naturally slender. it only bothers me when people ask me why i walk "that way" (it happened yesterday. it happens lots.) or when it's raining a lot, because rain makes it hurt.

A reason to move to Iceland. bjork!!! (if you want to picture how excitedly i did that, pronounce it: buh-JORK) who apparently still parties in reykjavik....and the gorgeous scenery.

A place you've lived that you miss. i miss all the people in ottawa, but i don't miss the town per se. at all. i don't see myself living there again, and i'm quite happy about that.

A job you'd never do, no matter how much you were paid. you know, i don't think i could do mortician. at ALL.

A band/group you thought was cool when you were 13. okay. when i was 13, i literally BOUGHT TICKETS FOR ME AND MY BEST FRIEND to go and see michael bolton. that's how fucking geeky i was. that, and queen.

You have a nightmare, who's the first person you think to call? i'd think to call my boyfriend, but i wouldn't. i'd just sort of lie there and hope to get back to sleep.

Wanna have kids before you're 30? let's concentrate on the getting married first. i'm with the man i hope to be married to, but i have some "stuff" to figure out first.

A memory from high school. smoking a kools cigarette that had been laced with lysol disinfectant spray, so promptly going to the girls' basement bathroom and puking my guts out.

Ever had a crush on a friend's parent? no. and, can i just say....EW.

Do you look more like your mom or dad? i look, and act, like my mother. down to the "self-sacrificing/please guess what i want" mentality.

Something you've always wanted to learn to do. become a yoga instructor with a specialization in helping people with able-bodied issues.

How you'd like your life to be in 10 years. deb had a pretty good answer for this one, which i echo. other than that, i'd like to be married, with children, and a book on the way.

Something you learned this year. that living your TRUE life is a million times scarier than living the safe one.

What do you want for your birthday? i want to have a fake birthday to replace the one that took place last sunday. thank you very much. i think it should be outlawed to cry that much on one's birthday.

Name 4 things you did yesterday.
1. i worked in the morning, from 9-3.
2. i did all my errands, including going back to the psych ward. eep.
3. i took a picture of the moon from on top of a mountain.
4. i had blueberry pie.

Last item you bought yourself? my first magnetic poetry kit!! i've been dying for one for so long and always thought it was an extravagance. but it was my birthday present to myself.

What did you have for breakfast? black coffee. juice. my pill.

Name a celeb you crush on. johnny depp. (shiver). ani difranco.

Name the last 3 songs you heard. easily. please forgive me, silver lining, and sail away from the most heart-breakingly perfect album right now, david gray's white ladder.

How many hours of sleep do you get each night? right now...about 10. (erm.) but i'm recuperating a bit.

What do you wish you were doing right now? not going to work in an hour and half...does that count?

Who's the first person in your phone book on your cell? don't have a cell, but the first person in my memory on my landline is met's cell.

Last time you witnessed a fight? last night. walking home from the shuttle, on my street. there was a man getting into a physical fight with a woman, in front of a child. it got broken up, though.
other than that - just argument? my own. :( :( :(

Name 3 places you'd like to travel to.
1. london england.
2. korea.
3. greece.

Do you know how to ice skate? yes. but i don't really know how to stop, or skate WELL, for that matter.

Name something you like that's out of the ordinary. um. lots of stuff.

Is bigger really better? that totally depends. i have to agree with deb on this one.

What do you think of Brad Pitt? he's pretty, but he ain't no johnny.

What color are your toenails? purple!

Do you own anything with a skull on it? no.

Traveled to Europe? yes. but i want to go back.

Last movie you watched? at the theatre - "a scanner darkly". On DVD - "about a boy" (although i have "the libertine" lined up and ready to go!)

Where were you when you had your first kiss? outside of a school bus at a water park.

Last board game you played? yu-gi-oh. (is that a board game?)

Leather or lace? leather boots. lace clothing.

Ever had a black eye? yup. the first was when i was born. i came out jaundiced with a black eye.

Have you ever worn fishnet stockings? yes. they make me feel sexy.

It was cool to read your answers!

I'd be curious to hear what you think of "The Libertine" after you watch it. I haven't seen it yet and I've heard very mixed reviews.

BJORK! rocks! I remember seeing her in LA when the Sugarcubes were still together...to much fun. Come to think of it, that David Grey album rocks to...well in a softer way! :-) Great answers and so much fun.
