Happy hump day everyone! Today I have something that I stole from my friend Katrin over at Land of Candy Canes. This is a series of “99 questions you should ask yourself”, but broken down into smaller chunks to be more manageable. Please go check out her answers too!
1. What are you addicted to?
Books, coffee, animals, chocolate, and the internet.
2. What’s the first thing you would do if you were invisible?
Eavesdrop on people! I would want to know what they were saying and doing when they thought no one was watching. I know, that’s horrible–but I bet you’d find out some really interesting things about the people you thought you knew so well!
3. Pictures or plants in your office?
Pictures, because all of the plants are in the kitchen where they have a nice south-facing window to let in lots of sunlight!!
4. If you could magically change a part of your body, which one would it be?
My legs. They’re not awful but they aren’t the nicest and all the bruises and cuts from my clumsiness have not helped matters.
5. Do you know people who would want to have sex with you immediately?
Um, that’s kind of personal, but I would sure hope my husband!
6. How often do you Google yourself?
I’ve done it a few times, just to see what comes up. Once I found out that I had been quoted in a Wikipedia entry for a movie that I had reviewed while freelancing for a small e-news site. (It’s gone now because I quit that job, but apparently it’s cached at an e-tail store selling the DVD!) Also, interestingly enough, the first entry that pops up when I Google myself is a story about a serial killer who shared my name.
7. Have you ever been depressive?
I suppose we all get depressed from time to time…I try really hard to be positive though.
8. What is the most embarrassing thing you can find on the internet about you?
Maybe some old pictures where I’m not wearing makeup. But I’ve never been big on posting things to the internet (until I started blogging) so I guess my answer to this is fairly unexciting.
9. Do you think that time heals all wounds?
No. Maybe you learn to cope, or things happen that make life a little better, but some wounds never really heal. However, I think that you can let them cripple you permanently or you can learn from them and become a stronger person in the future.
10. Which words of education of your parents would you never say to your kids?
I can’t think of any from my parents. They did a pretty good job, despite the fact that I’m sure I was a difficult child. I’m a difficult adult, for sure, so it had to start somewhere! This is probably less actual words of education and more of an attitude or an example overall, but I see a lot of other parents who malign people who are different in some way–maybe they’re poor, or mentally handicapped, or come from a different culture–and they really educate their children to pick on anyone who is different or less privileged. And I hate that. If I had kids I would teach them to always be kind, no matter what, because you just don’t know the other person’s story and why they are they way they are!
Stay tuned for the rest of the questions, I’ll post them over the coming weeks :)
