Stains and bad drivers are annoying!

Sam picked me up a little later than usual, and apologized since he was at the mall trying to find a birthday gift for someone... and then Chris called him to look for a basketball, but he wasn't at his place! I know how that can be, so it wasn't a problem for me! We talked a bit about dangerous moves in traffic, church stuff, and other things. Always good to have someone around whom you can depend on, heh.

At church, I found my Bible and notebook where I'd left them last night. Thank goodness for that, but my notebook had a coffee / rat / water stain on it. Since I didn't want to bring it home (particularly if it was rats), I just dumped it since I had another one at home that Lesley gave me for my birthday a while ago. People like giving me notebooks: I used up one from Vanessa recently, I'm still using one that Erin's mom got me, I dumped a Mashimaro one from Yazmine when she ended our friendship, and I'm not sure who the stained one was from! (maybe Yazmine, who knows?)

I used a twistable Crayola that I found in one of the Awana stationery boxes for recording stuff today: those things are very interesting! Eric T. was advertising his CD release party tonight to everyone, and I finished birthday cards for Steph / Eddie / Lesley. Afterwards, the leaders got to eat strawberries / Chinese pastries / wafers as snacks before dinner: we get pretty hungry too, but of course can't eat during Awana time or else Anita scolds us! (quite rightly, I suppose) I talked a bit to Jeff, the girls, Mike, and others about handcuffs and expensive restaurants before Sam and I left. Let's just say that some people don't look both ways before moving into another lane on the road, and that's just a little bit dangerous! Yes, of course Sam honked that bad driver!

Now I have some tomato vegetable soup simmering for dinner, and it smells so good... :D

German cannibals and five-variable love test

Apparently, the German cannibal dude is being tried again. I did not know that.

Your Five Variable Love Profile

Propensity for Monogamy:

Your propensity for monogamy is high.
You find it easy to be devoted and loyal to one person.
And in return, you expect the same from who you love.
Any sign of straying, and you'll end things.

Experience Level:

Your experience level is high.
You've loved, lost, and loved again.
You have had a wide range of love experiences.
And when the real thing comes along, you know it!


Your dominance is medium.
You tend to be the one with more power.
You aren't a total control freak in relationships..
But of course you don't mind getting your way!


Your cynicism is high.
Sure you believe in love, but you know it doesn't come easily.
You scoff at "love at first sight" and "soulmates."
You'd rather take the real thing, as unglamorous as it is.


Your independence is medium.
In relationships, you need both "me time" and "we time."
You usually find it easy to be part of a couple.
But occasionally, you start to feel a little smothered.

"A wide range of love experiences," eh? HAHAHAHAHA, that is SOOOOOOOO not true!

Johari Window, Jonestown Massacre

Got this from at least seven people on my friends list:

What sort of person do you think I am?

While I was out, Corey linked me to this Jonestown Massacre transcript. "Here's something you'll love since you're into serial killers and stuff: this is SORT of a serial killer thing... it's the Jonestown "Massacre" where like 900 people killed themselves... apparently someone made an audio tape of this :P They have transcripts too.. link near the bottom of the first page. :P I chose that option over listening, personally. Well, it's like 40+ minutes long, and from the transcript... at least the first half is probably safe... after they start giving the poison to babies... don't think so. :P The Wikipedia article is a good thing to go read for the backstory, so it makes more sense." Good thinking, because I agree!

I have heard about this before, and found it interesting from a psychological point of view. (there's the whole true crime aspect, too!) I've read the Wiki article and some of the links therein, and the transcript. I don't think I have the nerve to listen to the audio tape, however! Reading the stuff is enough for me, thanks. I don't want nightmares populated with screaming babies and children dying from cyanide poisoning... :(

Dead strippers inside birthday cakes / Questions 4701-4750 of 5000

As soon as I got into Eric's Honda tonight, he started in on jokingly blaming me for Anaheim then leading the Canucks 2-0.. there is no way that I delivered certain packages to GM Place or the Turin Olympic Games today, thanks! I was AT HOME all day, and don't have any connections besides! We just listened to the game while mock-arguing and his impressions of Arnold Schwarzenegger. After it was 3-0 on a goal that came one second before a Vancouver penalty expired, we turned off the radio and discussed the week for us. (he CAN eat spicy curry chips, but probably won't... that does it: I have to buy some more for him to try!) When we turned the radio back on shortly before we got to the church, it was 3-1 at the start of the first intermission, and Alex Auld had been pulled in favor of Maxim Ouellet.

Steph gave me some pictures from the holidays of her, me, Jon, Vivian S., Melissa, her friend Matt, Terrence, and his friend Kenny. Those were some good times at Milestones! I confirmed with Sam that he's picking me up tomorrow, which is good. Karen had this huge Christmas gift bag with her: Eric commented that Christmas was two months ago, and Karen said that it was for me. I thanked her, and gave it to Eric to hold for me tonight once she said it was glass. We also heard that Billy and Stella had had a baby boy earlier today... no name yet, though!

After Bible Study, I asked her why she'd given that to me: it was kinda in return for the platter I'd given her as a wedding gift. It's the one that she brings to all the gatherings... like I said to her at the time, she could now put food on the thing and share it with others! Besides, she still feels really badly about the time when they all sucked. For some reason, she keeps missing my RSVPs to her Bible Study group email... Randal knows I did! Speaking of Randal, he said that he'd wear his blue fisherman's hat for me, and he did... it DOES kinda look like mine, and it's useful when it's cold outside for sure! (man, it felt like the ARCTIC outside tonight!)

I went downstairs to read a bit about the Green River Killer case, then Christon spotted me and asked how my week was. Putting away my book, I answered him: the whole moving extension thing is confusing and leaves one wondering! He said he'd pray for me, which I appreciated. His week's been frustrating because of a project, but at least it's Reading Break and he doesn't have to worry too much about it for now. Then again, he has no clean shirts because of the project... oh well, not much you can do! I asked him if he'd tried the new spicy curry chips: he hadn't, but he will since I told him that they taste better than the Mesquite BBQ chips! (they do!)

Margaret, Steph, and Karen Grace were bugging each other about pool parties and such. When the other two mentioned that Steph could pop out of her own birthday cake, I told them about the stripper who'd been found dead inside a cake once! They felt bad for laughing at it, but it IS funny! "HAPPY BIRTHDAY... psst! That's your cue! HAPPY BIRTHDAY.... anybody alive in there?!" Hahaha! I talked to Danielle, who says that she's coming with Erin on Sunday for Steph's dinner party: that's good then! Janette thanked me for the sweet and funny birthday card I'd given her: she was certainly surprised when her brother Jason gave it to her last week! Melia tried getting us to go out to eat, but we declined the Metrotown Red Robin's in favor of going home.

Eric, Steph, and I listened to Sportstalk on the way home to figure out what the score was: when we heard that the Ducks wouldn't relinquish the lead, we all moaned. But then we heard that the backup goalie didn't allow another goal all night: that was a pleasant surprise! Steph told me that Grandma comes home tomorrow morning at 10:30... I swear Mom tells me all the wrong information on purpose! "She's coming home on Sunday," indeed! Eric helped me carry in the glass platter when we got to my place, and asked whether my sister was a car thief since she was alone in his car with the keys. Haha, I don't think she'd STEAL the car! Shortly afterwards, I discovered that I left my Bible AND my notebook at church: I don't know why I just didn't put them back in my knapsack after Bible Study! Grrr... oh well, maybe I'll find them in the Lost and Found tomorrow or something!

Got these questions from this QuestionClub LJ post by Arthurbulla. I'm going to post the survey in 50-question batches, like the original. No worries there! Five thousand questions and answers wouldn't fit as an entry, anyhow. :P

The only complete copy... you'll have to go around erasing answers.

300 to go.

4701. What is your reaction to beggars and homeless people on the streets? Ummmm... I don't know, I halfway feel sorry for them and halfway think they should stop being lazy and get a job.

4726. How easily do you understand Shakespeare? Not very well.

My answer: "The Pope was trying to tell Bush that God doesn't sanction his military actions. That's probably about right. Then again, I'm not God or the Pope. I don't claim to know for sure what they think!"

4736. Have / would you ever taken a botany (plants) course? No.

4737. Are you using your own computer or someone else's to take this survey? My own.

Eric and the Homestar Runner Character Test

I also linked Eric to that Homestar Runner Character Test, while promising not to kill him. Spent too long already reading the Crime Library, haha. (he got Marzipan, and proclaimed it a "bogus quiz" :P) He in turn promised not to kill me either, but he couldn't promise that his promise was true... thanks a lot, dude! :P

I told him that I wasn't really anything like Strong Bad, so he said that I was a vindictive grammar Nazi who spent my day answering blogs and emails. Aside from that part, I don't really have any lackeys / best friends to boss around! Aiya. :P

Labels: , , , , , , , , ,

I love the Crime Library and the prospect of gifts, but not RIKI and such movies! (candy hearts?)

I love someone, but they'll never know it. *emo sigh*

Thanks to a link someone posted elsewhere, I'm going to spend a lot of time reading stuff at The Crime Library this afternoon. I love true crime stories! :D (unlike what my mom thinks, I'm NOT reading them to get ideas on how to kill my family! *rolleyes* )

Corey and I were talking about horror movies yesterday: if he gets me a copy of Riki, I am going to kill him! But not so much if he gets me the Evil Dead series. Matt told me about Army of Darkness in 2001, and I have yet to watch it... it sounds cool, though!

I checked my email to find one from Karen Choo: she hopes I'll come tonight, as she has something for me. Hmm, I *did* RSVP on the heels of Randal's email earlier in the week! Maybe this mysterious thing is going to make up for a month ago, when the entire group sucked and didn't show up... I could have stayed home then, IF Karen had actually emailed me to say that Bible Study was cancelled! Guess I'll see tonight if I ever make plans with Eric...

The Rock 101 concept for this weekend suits me just fine: Breakup / dumping songs! :D

Your Candy Heart Says "Get Real"

You're a bit of a cynic when it comes to love.
You don't lose your head, and hardly anyone penetrates your heart.

Your ideal Valentine's Day date: is all about the person you're seeing. (with no mentions of V-Day!)

Your flirting style: honest and even slightly sarcastic.

What turns you off: romantic expectations and "greeting card" holidays.

Why you're hot: you don't just play hard to get - you are hard to get!

Questions 4651-4700 of 5000

If it weren't for the amount of time required to upload the below photos to Photobucket (not to mention have them open in my email), I'd have been in bed already! *grumble*

I told my sister that I wouldn't go to her party if she didn't send me the photo of me, Eric M., and Nathan at Pastor Edward's ordination. (well, not really... but I wanted to, mwahaha)

Upon checking my email earlier, I saw that Karen Choo had also sent me a picture from Stella's baby shower. So here you go: have both of them! They certainly took me long enough to load and save... thank goodness for Bookworm, else I'd be totally bored. :P

Eric M., me, and Nathan at Pastor Edward's ordination banquet back in September... I like our dragon backdrop!

Note: LJ Friends As Potatoes / LJ Lick My Toes / LJ Feet / LJ To Eat or Not to Eat / LJ Truth or Dare / LJ Zombie Attack blogquizzes. (by Melvin, Kaylin, and Kaitlin) [what a coincidence... all the usernames rhyme tonight! *grin*]

Got these questions from this QuestionClub LJ post by Arthurbulla. I'm going to post the survey in 50-question batches, like the original. No worries there! Five thousand questions and answers wouldn't fit as an entry, anyhow. :P

The only complete copy... you'll have to go around erasing answers.

4651. It's the olden days and your father is going to drive all the way from the big city. He wants to bring something back for you. What do you ask him for? Whatever reminds him of me.

4652. Have you ever watched Little House on the Prairie? No, but I have all the original books!

4653. How did Columbus discover America when people were already living here? He claimed it in Spain's name, I think.. or was that the one where he made a wrong turn? History is so not my strong point. :P

Didn't they discover it? Yes.

4654. How far can you spit? Not very.

4655. What drinks do you know how to mix? None... oh well.

4656. What does the perfect engagement ring look like? Diamonds and bling. Well, maybe not so much bling. But one stone would be cool. Sparkly would be a bonus. :D

4657. How do you feel about arranged marriages? Not for me.

4658. Do you talk to angels? No, I'm not living in the Black Crowes song. :P

4659. What are you worried about? Eric H. Will he show up or not?

4660. How often do you touch people in conversations? Sometimes.

4661. Do you read in bed? Sometimes.

4662. How many sick days in a row do you take off from school or work? Maybe 2 to 3 at the most.

4663. There are three nursery schools. Nursery school one has children sit together around tables. It emphasizes group play. It has building blocks that are very large, so large that it takes two or more children to lift them, in order to teach working together. It is moderately decorated and encourages the imagination by providing fewer materials for the children. There is one teacher per classroom and the teacher likes to allow the children to work out their own problems.

Nursery school two has many materials for the children and is brightly colored and decorated. There are two teachers per class and the teachers actively intervene between the children. There are different stations (painting, blocks, etc.) and the children are encouraged to make choices about what they like to do and don't like to do.

Nursery school three emphasizes scheduled activities. The children sit in rows and must work alone, relying on themselves. Everything is very organized and structured. The children wear bright clothing, and are taught to memorize stories and songs. If the parents both work, this school offers whole care, which means the child can stay overnight a few days a week.

Which school would you send your (possibly hypothetical) children to? The second one.

4664. Each of those nursery schools is in a different country. Which one is in the United States? The second one.

Which one is in Japan? Third.

What country is the last nursery school in? Sweden? Haha, I don't know.

4665. What hour is your most creative time of day? Sometime between 10 PM and 2 AM.

4666. Does sleeping feel more satisfying when all of your work is done, or when there's something else you should be doing? When everything's done.

4667. Here's a dollar. Put three songs on the juke box. That's not a question!

4668. Do you refer to teenagers as "kids" yet? Sometimes... I think I'm old. :P

4669. What is one thing you thought was the end of the world when you were a teenager (or if you are a teenager, name something you thought was the end of the world 5 years ago)? Getting a very crappy report card and having to deal with my Asian parental units' reactions later. :P

What do you think of this thing now? At least it's over!

4670. Are Americans uptight about sex? Maybe.

Are you? Possibly.

4671. What board games are in your closet? None. I always said I should get some when I moved into this apartment, but I never did. Probably a good thing, as nobody really ever comes over... I have cards instead!

4672. What movie quote sticks out in your mind (don't tell what movie it's from, let us guess)? "I live in a giant bucket!!!"

4673. What is the weirdest song you've ever found yourself enjoying? GWAR, Jiggle The Handle. Yes, it's about toilets. :P

4674. Look in your history book. Who would you have sex with? I don't have one, and I don't feel like looking online either. :P

4675. A man in the reserves is being called off to war. He wants to defend his country, but he finds that his one-year-old child needs a heart transplant. In his shoes, would you stay and care for your child... or go and defend your country? Stay and care for the child... family's more important in this kind of situation.

4676. Is Gone With The Wind:

an accurate movie: Somewhat.

a good movie: Somewhat.

4677. What is your salvation? God.

What will it take you to achieve it? Nothing, so it is said.

4678. Is alcohol the water of life? No.

4679. Name a friend of the opposite sex: Jason.

He or she tells you that he or she has always had a crush on you. Your reaction: Hey, that's cool. Maybe we can get together and try dating sometime. :D

4680. Name one of your same-sex friends: Emily.

He or she tells you that he or she is gay. Your reaction: Well, you know how I feel about gay people. But you're still my friend. Remember that I'm not gay, though!

Then he or she tells you he or she has always had a crush on you. Your reaction: .... that's kinda freaky! Look... even though you think I'm your type, I'm really not. That's cool, but maybe I can help you look for a girlfriend instead, okay?

4681. What was the difference between your reactions to the same-sex and the opposite-sex friend? The opposite-sex friend: I thought there could be potential. At the very least, it was cute. The same-sex friend: FREAK OUT! o_O

Why the difference of reactions? Because I'm not attracted to the opposite sex, nor would I pretend to be. :P

4682. Where could you go that would be so incredible you would no longer be able to come back to the life you live here and now? The other side of the world in a fantasy life... somewhere in Europe or Australia, perhaps.

4683. What is the main problem you have with yourself? I'm SOOOOO not motivated.

4684. When did you wish you could disappear? ... When certain embarrassing incidents happened in front of half the school in Grade 8. (no, you don't need any more information!)

4685. Why is it that we call poor-average people crazy and rich people eccentric? I don't know.

Can you think of a good example of irony? A fireman's house burning down.

4687. What have you recently changed your mind about? Going to a certain party. Oh well... *sigh*

4688. What is one thing you won't allow yourself to have? Cigarettes / porn.

4689. What would you say if Brad Pitt married Rosie O'Donnell? Rosie is a lesbian, so not attracted to guys in that way. Brad Pitt has his own problems with Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie, so that's the end of it.

What about if Catherine Zeta Jones married Drew Carey? That would be... interesting.

4690. Name something that there is no wrong way to do: Hug.

4691. If you and your partner could choose which of you would carry the baby (yes, even the male would be able to carry it), who would your vote be for? Me, because I'd definitely take better care of it during gestation and afterwards! (though that may be debatable to certain people :P)

4692. If men could get pregnant, would abortion become much more acceptable? Maybe.

4693. When and where have you felt most comfortable being nude? Alone in my room.

4694. What subject do you know the most about? Trivia.

Tell us something interesting about it. The world record for having the most children goes to Mrs. Vassiliev in Russia. She had 69 kids.

4695. What is the longest time you have gone between orgasms? Uh... forever.

4696. What is the least amount of money you would have to have in order to consider yourself rich? $2000.

4697. What words have others used to describe you? Weird, friendly, helpful, sweet, dork.

4698. What is the most extreme thing you would do / have done to alter your appearance? Makeup.

Why did you / would you do it? Because other people made me. :P

4699. What is the least amount of money you would accept to never have sex again? I don't know.

4700. What has been the hardest secret to keep? Like I'd post that here even if the time for keeping the secret was over. :P

Twins, Facts About Multiples, Corey, Winter Sports, and Sailor Moon

I just got an email from Jen Cassidy, who's the web person for a multiples mailing list I'm on: Facts About Multiples has now changed its URL to the one you see in the link. I've done a bunch of correcting past entries to reflect the new link... yes, I am obsessive about details. :P

For those of you who don't know, I've been interested in twins / triplets / quadruplets / and so on since I was a kid. No, I am not one myself, but I used to haunt the Twinstuff Forums until the bad spelling REALLY turned me off. Eric M. has seen me do a lot of Googling for multiples-related stuff. Spoz called it my "weird twin vibe," in fact! Two choice quotes from Corey:

"It will be cosmic retribution or a cosmic joke (or God's sense of humor) if you ever end up with multiples to parent!" (from late 2001 or early 2002)

"So what happens if you have a kid, and it turns out to just be one kid? Will you dump it off in a trash can and try again until there's more than one? :P You could just cut your baby in half and hope that each half regenerates another half and makes two babies." (this from March 2005; of course I wouldn't do that... it reminds me of this story!)

You Are Curling

What you lack in athleticism, you make up for in concentration.
And while curling isn't much more of a sport than bowling, you *can* win a gold medal for it!

Take the "You're Senshi Who" Quiz at Wishing Moon.

"I am popular, fun, outgoing, and pretty." Somehow, I'm not so sure about those...

Curry Chips / Hockey / Work / Questions 4601-4650 of 5000 / Blogquizzes

Man, these curry chips are good! Even better than the wasabi chips, dude! Corey says that Jane usually sends stuff like that in boxes, so I might send him a bag or two later. I'm going to call him a potato tomorrow for insinuating that I do crack. :P

I've just finished some tagging / backdating / editing work on the ghost stories, Dominic-related entries, and email stuff. :D Since I was so busy for the past several hours working on this, I kinda forgot to eat dinner. Am remedying that now with some SHRIMP noodles: I like that flavor anyhow, but I like it even more so now. Why, you ask? Because an ex-friend of mine claimed to be mildly allergic to seafood... I should have fed him some shrimp noodles when he was over at my place to test it. Then again, maybe not... that's just my devious nature talking. :P ;)

Apparently, the worst team in the NHL is too much for the Vancouver Canucks to handle. The St. Louis Blues handed us a 4-2 defeat earlier tonight... aiya!

Note: What my LJ friends think about when they go to bed / LJ friends' secret phobias / LJ LOTR Characters / LJ Apocalypse Posse / LJ Role in the Apocalypse / LJ Metroid-Style Spaceship Maker / LJ friends getting robbed blogquizzes. (by Jason, Melvin, and James)

Got these questions from this QuestionClub LJ post by Arthurbulla. I'm going to post the survey in 50-question batches, like the original. No worries there! Five thousand questions and answers wouldn't fit as an entry, anyhow. :P

The only complete copy... you'll have to go around erasing answers.

4601. What do you think of rappers who talk about raping and killing their mother? Stupid.

4602. Are you art? Not really.

4603. Do you think that most writers, musicians, and artists make art or love art? Original answer: "What?" Just answer the question, dumbass. My answer: "Both."

What would you prefer them do? Make it for the rest of us to enjoy!

4604. Iraq is destroying its missiles and the White House is still not happy. Why not? Because they're never happy.

4605. Do you find Americans to be a very sterile and emotionless people? No.

4606. What do we talk about when we talk about love? Original answer: "Love." Uh, I think we could gather THAT much! :P My answer: "Emotions, feelings, and that kind of thing."

4607. Would you write a song about how horrible your mom is in order to sell more records? No.

Why would anyone want to hear that anyway? No idea... maybe they secretly think those things about their mothers and this is "acceptable" enough as an outlet.

4608. Do you think that Eminem is genuine or doing it all for show (even his mom says it's all for show)? He's probably genuine, but I don't think he'll kill her!

4609. Should juveniles be tried as adults if they commit murder? For sure!

4610. Should there be laws to restrict breeding? Yeah.

Should the laws include getting a high score on an IQ test? No, but they should include a reasonably good grasp on grammar and spelling!

Should the laws include proving that you can / will be able to provide care and support for the child? Yes, of course.

Should the laws include a background check to determine whether you will be a fit parent? Yes.

4611. Would you / have you ever committed statutory rape (had sex with someone 17 or younger while you were 18 or older)? No!

4612. Do you believe that McDonald's should be held responsible for its customers' obesity? Maybe not ALL of it, but maybe some...

4613. Did you know that 1/2 of American adults read at an 8th grade level or below (I just saw it on Fox News)? No, but I wouldn't be surprised.

What do you think of this? That's stupid... a nation producing more idiots is NOT what this world needs!

4614. Do you drink tea with honey? No.

4615. Do bees and wasps terrify you? Yeah. :P

4616. How do you decide what to say and do when someone puts the spotlight on you? No deciding about it... I'll freak out!

4617. Are you more muddy or clean? Clean.

4618. If consciousness could speak, what would it say? "You can't ignore me NOW!"

4619. Is Leslie a good name for a man? No, it's only a good name for me. Sometimes not even that, since I wasn't even named with an original name. My mom liked her brother's wife's name, so she named me that... terrible lack of creativity there! :P

4620. Why do men feel they have the right to look women up and down? Because those men who feel that way are primal idiots who think of women as sex objects!

4621. Are you pristine? Original answer: "Who?" HAHAHAHAHA, she's an idiot! (I did once know a kid named Pristina, though!) My answer: "No, definitely not! I don't think any of us can truly say that!"

4621. Do you want to blind people with your wet-look lipgloss? Not really, but that sounds like fun!

Guys, do you like to be blinded by super shiny wet-look lip gloss?

4622. How many years is too big of an age difference for a couple? Isn't it half your age + 7? I think 15 years is too big of an age difference in general, but I suppose it CAN work in certain cases.

4623. What would the worst name be to have? Dick, Johnson, Peter... yeah, you can stop with the jokes now. Also, any name that's poorly spelled to start with... ugh!

4624. China and France are both opposed to war with Iraq. What do you think of this? YAY!

4625. What do you think about the Turkish parliament not allowing American troops to set up camp in Turkey? I have no opinion on that.

4626. What country is the most generous about foreign aid? Canada, maybe. I really wouldn't know.

What country is the least generous? I wouldn't know, as stated above.

4627. Who's the sexiest Ghostbuster? .... ewww! I didn't think of them as sexy when I was a kid! o_O

4628. Are you a humanitarian? To a certain extent, yes.

4629. Have you ever seen the Tommy and Pamela Anderson honeymoon sex video? No.

Do you think it was meant to be private or a publicity stunt? Let me get this straight. If it was meant to be private, you wouldn't leak it on the Internet unless you were an attention whore. So it was probably a publicity stunt.

4630. Are you a cat expert? No.

4631. Go Go Gadget: Arms!

4632. What's your idea of fun? Being with friends, but only for a certain time.

4633. At what age will you panic about feeling old? SHUT UP. I am NOT answering this one.

4634. It's you and ___ against the world. Me.

4635. Are you the keymaster or the gatekeeper? Neither... but both positions sound fun!

4636. When is the end of the world going to be? Soon.

4637. Write your own theme song now: She's so weird, and yet so clumsy... but watch out for her thoughts! (hahaha, I suck :P)

4638. Do you yell at the TV when the news disturbs you? No... but if a hockey game or such pisses me off, then I will.

4639. Is society too sick to survive? Sometimes.

4640. Have you ever been involved in a ritual? Not that I know of... o_O

4641. What the hell do YOU want? Steak. Or hot and sour soup.

4642. Have you seen Finian's Rainbow? No.

What would you have done?

4643. Weezer's best album is: Weezer: The Blue Album.

Why? Because I have it... just kidding. Probably because they have good songs on there.

4644. Fast food of choice: I don't do fast food all that often anymore, but it would have to be McDonald's. (it's closer to me than Burger King or Wendy's!)

4645. What song is in your head RIGHT NOW?! Moist's Tangerine.

4646. Is this a magic moment? Not in the least!

Of course it is.

4647. A theme song you hate is: Can't think of any right now.

4648. What words can you come up with by anagramming your name? Original answer: "What's anagramming?" Stupid idiot. My answer: Plug it into the Internet Anagram Server, and you'll know.

4649. Are you a magician? No.

4650. What kind of waffles suit you best? Original answer: "Anything but ego, please." Hahaha, idiot! My answer: "I'm not fussy. They just have to taste good!"

Moving Extension / Funny Image / Quizzes

This "moving" thing is getting more and more complicated... or maybe it's only Barry. He says I called him last week to discuss shopping next Monday when I didn't do such a thing: I left him a message about it, but I never talked to him about anything! Then he said that I could be given an extension even though I've already gotten my eviction notice... I'd only have to pay a little more each month. If that was the case, why didn't anyone tell me earlier when I was trying to decide whether to move or not?! I'd have to sign another lease (maybe for a year or so), however... that might be the best course of action since so many people are moving right now that it's hard to tell whether I'll get a place for April or not. This IS a good location, and maybe they'll even fix the heat! (ha ha, I can dream!) So I guess that's what I'll do for now, but my books will still be in boxes!

Note: I did the Icon-Talk Meme Game stolen from Sara and Kevin.

You are a Return of the Living Dead Zombie. You were brought back from the grave by exposure to 245-Trioxin. You crave the heavenly taste of spicy brains to stop the pain of being dead. You are virtually indestructible, as even burning you up will create Zombie Rain and raise more zombies.

What kind of Zombie are you?

Black Metal
You are black metal. Your ultimate Saturday night is spent worshipping Satan. You turn every cross you see upside down, you prowl around the woods pretending to be a troll, and you never smile. You're either a paganist or a Satanist. Act as if these two religions have something to do with each other.

What sub-genre of metal (music) are you?
brought to you by Quizilla

HAHAHA, that is SO not me! But the music rocks. :D

BLUES are motivated by INTIMACY, seek opportunities to genuinely connect with others, and need to be appreciated. They do everything with quality, and are devoted and loyal friends and employers / employees. Whatever or whomever they commit to are their sole (and soul) focus. They love to serve and will give freely of themselves in order to nurture others' lives.

BLUES, however, do need to be understood. They have distinct preferences, and occasionally the somewhat controlling (but always fair) personality of a confident leader. Their code of ethics is remarkably strong and they expect others to live honest, committed lives as well. They enjoy sharing meaningful moments in conversation as well as remembering special life events (i.e. birthdays and anniversaries). BLUES are dependable / thoughtful / nurturing, and can also be self-righteous / a bit worry-prone / emotionally intense. They are like sainted pit-bulls who never let go of something once they are committed. When you deal with a BLUE, be sincere / make an effort to truly understand them / truly appreciate them.

What Color Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

Opeth Logo
You are Opeth. Extreme prog, prog-death, whatever. You mix acoustic and electric, clean and harsh, soft and loud in a way that few other bands can. Subsequently, your fans are as bad as Radiohead's or Tool's. But it's worth it.
