do i dare or do i dare? [userpic]

a rare non-fic post

December 3rd, 2011 (01:39 pm)

So, I never do this but I actually have time to so I figured, why not? Plus, I snagged it from moogsthewriter who can talk me into anything even when she's not actually trying to.

The rules:
1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves in their journal.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer. (I borrowed a couple from moogsthewriter because I am uncreative.)
3. You have to choose 11 people to tag. (I highly doubt anyone I tag would do it anyway, so if you feel inclined, go for it!)
4. No tag backs.

1. What did you have to eat at your previous meal?

A salad of sorts, part of a hot dog, and then graham crackers and marshmallow cream. I’m sort of regretting the hot dog, though, and wanting more marshmallow cream.

2. If you could have any animal for a pet, what would it be?

Honestly, I know this will astound some people, but I really don’t want a pet. I already have a husband and two kids, so I think that’s enough care and maintenance in my life.

3. When you look out the window right now, what do you see?

Um, nothing because the blinds are drawn. But in theory, I’d see the farm across the way and the swing set in the backyard.

4. What's one skill you would really like to have (or one you would like to improve on)?

I wish I could sing. As it is, I have a pretty mediocre voice and a horrible range. It would just be nice to be able to sing along with the radio or in church and not have to fake the high notes every now and then.

5. Is there a question you've always wanted the answer to but have never learned? If so, what is it?

Hm, most of the big things I want to know are a bit existential and kind of unknowable by default. I’ve always had these questions about the afterlife (as most people do) and I’ve wanted to know what the Bible really says about Heaven (since that is what I believe in). I probably should take the time to do a study on it, but just haven’t, and really, I suppose I’ll never know for sure what it’s like until I’m there. Someday!

6. You're forming a super-powered, made up of you and four friends. Who are your teammates, and what powers do you all have?

LOL. That’s almost too hard. Well, I suppose moogsthewriter has to be able to fly so she can go all the places she wants to go and do all the things she wants to do; sendintheklowns I think must be invincible because I know the hassles she puts up with at work and still manages to come around each evening and chat with me; geminigrl11 is perhaps able to read minds since she usually knows what I’m saying even when I’m not making any sense; and sophie_deangirl must have x-ray vision because she is incredibly astute at writing one’s inner most cravings. As for me, I like to think I pick up on the powers of those around me, a bit a la Rogue in X-Men or Peter Petrelli for the Heroes fans. At least, in my mind, the only things of greatness in my life are really because of the people around me.

7. What's the one place outside the country you currently live in that you'd love to move to?

Gah, these questions make me realize how boring I am. Because I’m really happy where I’m at and I think moving away from my family would simply be more than I’d want to. But, if we can include the caveat that somehow my entire family gets to come too, I’d love to live in Spain. I went there when I was a senior in high school and fell in love. I’ve pined to go back ever since and just spend time in some of the older cities.

8. What's the most recent movie you've seen?

Um. In theaters? I think it was Transformers 3. At home, I just saw Super 8. And you know, I really loved both of those, although I think Super 8 is probably a better movie. And now I want to see them both again (and make icons!!).

9. What's the most recent book/story you've read?

I’ve been a horrible reader these days! But since you said story, fic counts, so I read a myriad of things written for my birthday, including Adrenaline Rush by sendintheklowns. As for an actual book, I think the most recent thing I read was either Under the Greenwood Tree or Sense and Sensibility.

10. What's one thing you hope to accomplish in 2012?

Sleep for eight hours straight! But that’s more up to my daughter than me. Also, I hope to finish off the majority of my WIPs and post all the fic wasting away on my computer. That’s a scary amount, trust me.

11. If you had to use a catchphrase for the rest of your life, what would it be?

It’s gets better. Because, really, it gets better. I have to tell myself that quite often when life is going crazy.

My questions

1. If you could be a type of pizza topping, what would you be and why?
2. Where do you see yourself in five years?
3. What’s the first fic you remember reading?
4. How did you end up getting involved in fandom?
5. What is your dream job and why?
6. If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Why?
7. What is the thing that scares you most?
8. Where is the last place you went on vacation?
9. What is your favorite font to use?
10. If you could only save one possession in case of a fire, what would it be?
11. How did you pick your username?
