I think I’m gonna go to sleep really soon because I dragged myself out of bed at 9:45 after what has to be the worst night of sleep I’ve had since the night I tried to sleep in the back of the minivan on the way home from Nashville. I don’t understand why it is that I can take some Tylenol PM and not fall asleep, then stay up all night and all the next day, and THEN take more Tylenol PM and still barely get six hours of sleep.
Yeah, I fell asleep sometime around 12:45 Wednesday morning, woke up around 5:45 and couldn’t fall asleep again until around 8. So when Mum woke me at 9:30, I was finally tired and didn’t want to wake up, but I did it anyway. Guh…
Why can’t I sleep normally? You know, like normal people are supposed to…
But I have some compulsive desire to post something, so I’ll do that before I go to bed.
When you highlight sentences on the computer, do you highlight right to left, or left to right?
Usually top right to bottom left, but sometimes from bottom left to top right.
After a shower and a good washing of your hair, do you keep your towel on your head for a while and then comb it out, or comb it out as soon as you get out of the shower?
Do I comb my towel out? What an odd thing to do. No, I’ve never combed a towel. I comb my hair though, and then mess it up so that it dries kind of fluffier than it would otherwise.
Say you were going to be married in a week, and you and your fiancé are constantly fighting the past few days and you guys start realizing your differences. Would you call your wedding off, or would you go for it, thinking things will get better?
Depends on what the fights are about. I mean, I think we already know we have differences. We’ve been dating for almost four years now.
Is your television on a TV stand or something different?
It’s on the floor. It’s a big TV because, amazingly, we found a somewhat inexpensive big-screen when we moved here five years ago. I loves the big telly, although I confess I don’t watch a whole lot of television.
If you crack your knuckles, do you crack them one at a time, or all at the same time?
I don’t crack my knuckles. If I’m going to crack something, it is probably a skull that belongs to someone else. It’s what I do when I’m bored and a survey just doesn’t seem to be the right course of action.
Would you rather have your house have different colored walls or just plain white everywhere?
Different colours. So far I’ve been responsible for a Tigger-orange hallway, a purple and teal computer room, a green kitchen (think of the colour of lime peel), a blue bathroom, and my own red and black bedroom.
Have you ever tried out for a sport and ended up not making the team?
I hate sports. I quit basketball after 7th grade, although it’s probably a good thing I played that year, because that’s what helped me become a Christian, in a roundabout way.
Have you had a friend come out of the closet recently? What was your reaction?
Nope. I only have two close(ish) friends, and I feel pretty sure about both of them.
Out of all the things you are excited for, what’s the thing you are most excited for?
For my CD to get here! 😀
I’m really hoping that it will come tomorrow or Friday, but…it might not.
When you start the day, do you get dressed before you do your hair/makeup/brush your teeth, or do you do that afterward?
Brush teeth, floss teeth, mouthwash, shower, dress, moisturizer, eyeliner. The teeth and the showering take the longest.
If you’ve ever made a survey, have you ever ended it on an uneven number?
I don’t make them, I just take and occasionally mock them.
What makes you stop taking a survey in the middle of taking it?
Nothing. I usually finish them unless I decide my answers are too bland. Then I scrap the survey and do something else.
When was the last time your carpet in your bedroom was vacuumed? Or if you have hard wood floors, when was the last time you swept in there?
Er…a few weeks ago. I know I need to do it again, but things keep happening to distract me.
Do you ever get tan lines from jewelry?
From my leather wristbands, sometimes.
When you go swimming, do you ever play Marco Polo? What other games do you play in the pool?
When do I go swimming? Do you know something I don’t?
Was the last store you went to small or big?
Big. It was a giant Barnes & Noble.
Do you sneeze into your hand or into the crook of your arm when you don’t have a tissue?
Elbow. Usually the left.
If you decided to play hide and seek in your house right now, where would you hide?
Hmm…one of the basement utility rooms. Or maybe under my mum’s desk in the living room.
Do you have any scars on your legs?
Nope. Just red scratches from puppy claws. I used to have a scar on my leg because I fell off a wooden dock once and a board scraped all up the side of my leg. I also had one by my knee, but I don’t remember what it was from. They’ve actually disappeared now because they weren’t so bad (that or I am so white that they are now indistinguishable).
When you give a card to someone for their birthday or their grad party, and you don’t give them a gift, how much money do you put in the card, if at all?
Depends on how well I like the person, and how much money I have at the time, and how many other grads I feel obligated to give money to.
“Typically, a lot of unawakened psi-vamps will unconsciously create emotionally charged and melodramatic situations expressly to feed off the energy that results. They are attention-getters, drama queens, and oh-poor-mes.”
