YOU'RE ON MY FRIENDS LIST, I WANNA KNOW YOU... We all like to talk about ourselves.   Come on, play along!


1. Can you cook?
Yes and it's something I really love to do.  I even went to culinary school just  for fun a few years back.  

2. What was your dream growing up?
What I wanted has changed many times over the years.  I think the most longstanding aspiration was to be a writer. 

3. What talent do you wish you had?
I wish I could sing! I sooooo totally can't.

4. Favorite place?
Chicago.

5. Favorite vegetable?
I love roasted green beans.

6. What was the last book you read?
Book?  I re-read Order of the Phoenix.

7. What zodiac sign are you?
Aquarius.

8. Any Tattoos and/or Piercings?
Two holes in each earlobe.  A closed third hole in my right ear.  I have 4 tattoos.  2 on my left ankle-- one on the inside, one on the outside.  One in the small of my back (which I've been told is called a 'tramp stamp') and one right where my bra closes on my back.  I pierced my eyebrow in college and took it out because it got infected.

9. Worst Habit?
Not sleeping.

10. Do we know each other outside of Livejournal?
Some of you.

11. What is your favorite sport?
College football to watch.  Tennis, to play.

12. Do you have a Negative or Optimistic attitude?
I'm fairly optimistic

13. Worst thing to ever happen to you?
I shattered my ankle when I was 16.  My boyfriend at the time was a volunteer fireman and we were out when he got called to a fire.  I was standing around watching and there was a problem with the hose.  It blew off and was flying around and caught me in the ankle.  I had 7 screws and a steel plate put in and some fake plasticky bone parts.  Spent 6 months in a cast that went from toe to hip.  It sucked.
 
15. Tell me one weird fact about you.
All of a sudden, I'm a publicist for a rapper and have to learn a whole new industry.

Eek. Guess it depends on the crime!

I copied my answers from when I posted in princess_kessie's journal, except I changed a couple for you.

1. Can you cook?
I can follow directions in a cookbook and have things come out properly, and I can occasionally make something up out of the blue. I don't consider myself an expert or even intermediate, though.
2. What was your dream growing up?
I had lots of them!
3. What talent do you wish you had?
I wish I were more talented musically.
4. Favorite place?
My house.
5. Favorite vegetable?
French-cut green beans.
6. What was the last book you read?
The last one I finished was I re-read Eragon. I'm in the middle of four or five books right now.
7. What zodiac sign are you?
Pisces, Libra rising, moon in Aries. I'm the most ticked-off Pisces you'll ever meet. ;)
For the Chinese zodiac, I'm Year of the Snake, which means I value my naps.
8. Any tattoos and/or piercings?
No tattoos. One piercing in each earlobe. I used to have two in my left, but let one grow in. I also used to have my navel pierced but it never healed and after two years I was tired of it so I took it out.
9. Worst habit?
Self-criticism.
10. Do we know each other outside of LiveJournal?
Yes, for a little over ten years now.
11. What is your favorite sport?
Hm, my favorite active thing to do myself is either swimming, biking, or canoeing. I don't much like watching sports.
12. Do you have a negative or optimistic attitude?
It depends on what I'm predicting about.
13. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
After trying to secure our imminent release, I would probably begin a conversation on the frustrations of family, because I think that could last us both awhile!
14. Worst thing to ever happen to you?
Failed a couple classes in college and nearly dropped out.
15. Tell me one weird fact about you.
I used to work at an opera, and I can't sing.
16. Do you have any pets?
Three cats and two goldfish.
17. Do you know how to do the Macarena?
Yes, I learned at a US Navy ROTC dance in spring 1995. Why must you torture me?

1:05 PM EDT
19. Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
Depends on the clown.
20. If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
I think I could stand to lose about forty pounds.

Why are these mutually exclusive?

Blue with a little ring of brown around the pupil.

Nope.
24. Bottle or draft?

Yes but I'm not sure of their exact nature.

Read.
30. Do you swear a lot?
More than I ought to but not as much as my husband. I'm pretty sure our baby's next word is going to be "F*ck."
31. Biggest pet peeve?
When the dishwasher is empty, why put dishes IN THE CLEAN SINK instead of INTO THE DISHWASHER? ARRRGH.
32. In one word, how would you describe yourself?
Tense.
