Can't Believe I'm Posting One Of These

Questions about me: stolen from Amber over at Last Yesterday.


  • Are you young at heart, or an old soul? I've been told by multiple people, including the "psychic" who gave me a tarot card reading, that I'm on old soul. 
  • What makes someone a best friend? Staying your friend, even after all the craziness.
  • What Christmas (or Hanukkah) present do you remember the most? I have more birthday gifts that stick out in my mind, like my engagement ring and the book my grandpa's in (both give to me by J), but I was talking about my scooter that I got from Santa/Dad today, so we'll go with that.
  • Tell me about a movie/song/tv show/play/book that has changed your life. One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I fell in love with his writing and it showed me a different way to look at life.
  • Name one physical feature that you like about yourself, and one you dislike. I love my calves. Odd, I know, but I like shorts and skirts that show them off. They're nice. I dislike my tummy the most right now. Working on getting rid of that, though. 
  • Would you like to reconnect with any friends you’ve lost contact with? I have done that quite a bit the past couple years. There are a few more I wouldn't mind talking to again. 
  • What’s more important in a relationship: physical attraction or emotional connection? They go hand in hand. If you find the person physically attractive, you are more likely to tolerate them emotionally. And vice versa. Can't have one without the other.
  • Name a movie that you knew would be terrible just from reading the title. Twilight.
  • What holiday do you most look forward to? I love Chanukah. Always have. I think it's because I'm a pyro.

  • Name a song that never fails to make you happy. Push The Little Daisies - Ween
  • You know at least one person named Michael. Tell me about him. My cousin. He's a pain in the ass and I love him for it.

  • Can money buy happiness? Money can buy chocolate and Dr. Who on DVD so yes.
  • Do you drink? Smoke? Do drugs? Why, or why not? Drink, yes. To hear me talk about it, I sound like a total lush. I still smoke cigars a few times a year. Never did drugs. Never felt the need. Unless my prescriptions count. 
  • Is there anyone close to you that you know you can’t trust? You don’t have to give names. Yes.
  • Where was your favorite place to go when you were a little kid? Granite. It's still one of my favorite places in the world. Yes, world.
