100 things you never knew you never knew

1. Taken a picture naked?

Does this mean have I taken a picture whilst naked or have I had a picture taken of myself naked? Maybe but probably not to the first, definitely not to the second. I have enough problems with people taking pictures of me fully clothed. Which reminds me, patchfire, do you have those pics of me (fully clothed--if they were naked ones, Sam would probably have hidden them somewhere, bwah) from my visit? I need a photo of myself, ironically. My fear of myself on film comes back and bites me in the arse.

2. Taken a shower with someone?

Yeah, but I'd rather wash alone. Not a fan of showers for two (or more than two, for that matter).

3. Made out with a member of the same sex?

Not exactly. And I SO hate the term "made out". The Brits are way cooler with "snogged". But no. One peck maketh not snoggage.

4. Drove a car?

Yes, but I'm not a fan of driving. I'd rather take the bus or the train.

5. Stolen anything?

Sure. Pens, mostly. I'm famous for it.

6. Like someone?

I like most people. :)

7. Been dumped?

On my arse. More than once. Ouch.

8. Stolen money from a friend?

No. Never, ever entered my mind.

9. Got in a car with people you'd just met?

Sure. It beats driving.

10. Been in a fist fight?

Been beat up a few times, does that count?

11. Snuck out of someone's house?

Primrose is my name, burglary's my game.

12. Had feelings for someone who didn't have them back?

Yeah. Given my taste in men, it's not surprising.

13. Been arrested?

Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on." He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car."

Oh, wait, that wasn't me.

14. Ever made a wise crack about emo?

I have an Emo son. 'Nuff said.

15. Met up with a member of the opposite sex somewhere?

It isn't really possible to meet up with someone nowhere. Unless you're These guys.

16. Left your house with out telling your parents?

ZOMG, just today! AND I TOOK THE CAR! AND BOUGHT DRUGZ AN' BOOZE! Well, okay, I went to Providence to get my Adderall prescription. Then I went to CVS and filled it. Then I went to the packy and got Some Mike's. Mom, I'm sorry I didn't tell you. Oh, and I bought....CAT FOOD!. *weeps* I'm so sorry!

18. Ditched school to do something more fun?


19. Slept in a bed with a member of the same sex?

Yes. moonlight69 was completely appropriate about it. Where did I go wrong?

20. Lost a friend?

I recently found out that an old, dear friend I'd lost touch with had died two years ago. But other than that, no. Never lost a real friend.

21. Been on a plane?

Just last week, home from my patchfire's house in not-so-sunny Georgia. Next time I'm driving (I hate flying more than driving, because I'm not afraid to drive and I really kindof am about planes, some). As my mum says, nothing like Terra Firma The more firma, the less Terrah.

22. Been to an island?

Lived on this one for almost sixteen years.

23. Slept in until 3?

Yep, when I went to bed at five a.m. Or worked the night shift.

24. Love someone or miss someone right now?

Yep. Lots of peoples. I miss my mum (who's out on that Island I linked to before) and songdog and family, and wah, patchfire and her family (already!), and my peacey, 'cause I didn't get to see her, and wives moonlight69 and littlealex, because wah again, they are so far away. But especially, especially though I miss my ickle boy mr_t00by, because going on four months is a long time to be away from one's kid. *counts days* Many others, too. Like my dad and my Gramma.

Here she is with me when I was about seven. Yes, I know my undies are showing, but I bet I didn't then. Note übercool cats-eye glasses on Gramma:

25. Laid on your back and watched cloud shapes go by?

Yep. I need to do that again, and soon. Life? Is über-short.

26. Made a snow angel?

I probably did once or twice. Then I wised up and refused to go outside in the snow. Because snow is Cold and I do not like Cold or anything to do with Winter. I don't know how kukupello and you Swedish/Norwegian/Danish/Finnish people do it. I'm in awe. But I don't ever want to have to find out for myself (although I'll come visit some Summer's day!)

27. Played dress up?

I dressed up more playing dressup as a kid than I do now. Nowhere to go. But whee, I get to dress up for croosa and tapped_trish's wedding, and then again for Second Nephew Pat's wedding in December!

28. Cheated while playing a game?

I never could, even when I was a kid. No lie.

29. Been lonely?

I kind of am right now. *sigh*

30. Kissed more than 4 people in one night?

Who didn't play Spin the Bottle in high school/whatever it's called where you live?

32. Felt an earthquake?

No, say thankya.

33. Touched a snake?

Oh, yes. I love snakes. They have this cool, dry texture to their skin.

34. Ran a red light?


35. Been suspended from school?

No, actually.

37. Been in a car accident?

Yeah, but *knocks wood* no bad ones.

38. Hated the way you look?

Yeah. Usually it's not hate, though. Just a vague blecchiness and OMG LINES ON MY FACE, stuff like that.

39. Made yourself throw up?

Never, ever, ever ever. I'm actually an emetophobe, although not to a clinical point. Still, I'll do just about anything to avoid vomiting. I hate it so much. *scrubs image from brain*

40. Crawled through a window?

Just a couple of days ago. Locked meself out.

41. Been lost?


42. Been to the opposite side of the country?

Does Hawaii count? Also Oregon (but alas, before my moonlight69 moved there).

43. Felt like dying?

Never wanted to die. Felt sick enough that I almost wondered sometimes. I used to get tummy bugs, which is a great big bunch of irony considering my aforementioned phobia. Don't get 'em as much anymore.

44. Cried yourself to sleep?

More like cried myself out and then fell asleep. I'm not sure how you can fall asleep whilst crying.

46. Sang karaoke?

Yes. I wish I could do it more often. I love it!

47. Done something you told yourself you wouldn't?

Yeah. Like be lazy and not clean.

48. Laughed until something you were drinking came out your nose?

I don't know. Which means probably not.

49. Caught a snowflake on your tongue?

Yeah, back when I still had anything to do with snow.

50. Kissed in the rain?

I think so. Maybe. I'm not a fan of being out in the rain. Hmm. It would seem I hate weather.

51. Sang in the shower?

Yeah. I rock something fierce, too.

52. Made love in a park?

A PARK? No. *deadpan* Obviously I haven't lived.

53. Had a dream that you married someone?

I don't think so. I did dream I had a date with John Edwards. Purely platonic, though, because unfortunately, I never have THOSE kinds of dreams. I may have dreamed I was married to Neil Gaiman, but I'm not sure if it was actual marriage. He was a doctor in my dream. Dr. Neil. White coat. With the hair and the voice and darnit, why DON'T I have THOSE kinds of dreams? Why, gods, why? Then I dated Stephen King in another dream. That one I'm pretty glad was platonic. 'Cause he's my platonic schoolgirl crush, an' all.

54. Glued your hand to something?

No. Some people sure are stupid.

55. Got your tongue stuck to a flag pole?

No. Why would I bring a body part in contact with something frozen? Besides, I'd have had to go outside in winter, and, well. See multiple references above.

56. Ever gone to school partially naked?

Well, miniskirts were pret-ty short in my time. But no. I was a jean-jacket, bell-bottoms and platform shoes kinda hip '70s girl.

57. Been a cheerleader?

No, but my friend Linda was. Back when cheerleaders didn't dress like they were moonlighting at Hooters.

58.Thought about going gay?

It isn't possible to "go gay", because sexuality is something you're born with. However, if I remove a letter I can honestly tell you that while I've thought about going gray,I fortunately came to my senses and kept up with the bottle red.

59. Didn't take a shower for a week?

Well, I took baths as a kid. Every Saturday night whether I needed it or not. Seriously, back in the stone age scrubbing oneself silly every day wasn't a priority. I still don't take a shower every day. I couldn't give you stats, but I really believe it's not healthy.

60. Ever too scared to watch scary movies alone?

To this day, I have not seen The Shining all the way through. Me, a hardcore Stephen King fan. I've seen most of it in pieces, though. I don't really like scary films. I prefer scary books.

61. Played chicken fight?

No, 'fraid not.

62. Been pushed into a pool with all your clothes on?

I don't think so. I've been pushed in a bathing suit, I'm pretty sure of that.

63. Been told you're hot by a complete stranger?

Back in the day, yeah.

64. Broken a bone?

Nope. *is proud*

65. Been easily amused?

Oh, yes.

66. Laughed so hard you cried?

Hehee, yes.

67. Mooned/flashed someone?

When I was married. Does that count? Never mooned anyone, but OMG, that would be FUN!

68. Cheated on a test?

I may have looked on someone's paper a time or two in high school. Oddly, my weirdness about not cheating on games didn't affect me here. Although since I've been an adult I would rather listen to Modern Country than cheat--I want accomplishing something through intellect, not subterfuge (NOTE THE BIG WORD AT THE END OF THE SENTENCE I AM SOOO SMART).

69. Forgotten someone's name?

Yes. All the time.

70. Slept naked?

Yeah, but I don't really like it.

71. Done something dumb while drunk?

Sure. I hate being drunk, so being drunk itself is dumb for me. I used to have a high tolerance, but I've lost it since I lost weight. Rather be a lightweight than a heavyweight, though. Um. Yeah, that makes sorta sense.

73. Blacked out from drinking?

Does falling asleep reallyreallyfast count?

74. Played a prank on someone?

I'm positive I have.

75. Gone to a late night movie?

Yeah, at Nimbus. I fell asleep, of course.

76. Made love to anything not human?

You mean I should have CHECKED first?

77. Failed a class?

Yeah, in high school. And college when I withdrew without telling anyone, like the admissions people at the school.

78. Choked on something you're not supposed to eat?

No. I've never actually choked. Except metaphorically (THERE'S ANOTHER BIG WORD).

79. Been to another country?

Yeah. Egypt, The Netherlands(overnight), Italy (OMGLOVES), The Bahamas (my honeymoon, and I didn't like it. Not because it was my honeymoon, y0.) Canada, O Canada. I'd live there if it wasn't so darned COLD. (see plethora of above hate!remarks re: cold weather)

80. Cheated on a girl/boyfriend?

No. And woah. What does a girl/boyfriend look like?

81. Did you celebrate the 4th of July?

Yeah, on Block Island

82. Thrown strange objects?

Define "strange". I don't throw things much. I'd rather watch Wake do it.

83. Felt like killing someone?

No, can you believe it? But if I ever do, I guarantee I know who it'll be (none of y'all, don't worry, unless I bore you to death with surveys like this).

84. Thought about running away?

Yes. I'm in the middle of a midwife crisis. :) Also [Jimmy Buffet] I wanna go where it's waaaarm[/Jimmy Buffett]

85. Ran away?

Not really.

86. Got a piercing?

My ears. I'd like an eyebrow, but my kids would laugh me out of town. Maybe a small nose one, when I'm down to my ideal weight.

87. Cut your own hair?

When I was a kid, yeah. Just the fringe, mostly.

88. Made a parent cry?

I was a teenager, I'm sure I did.

90. Cried over someone?

A few someones, I'd wager.

91. Owned more than 5 sharpies?

i_am_a_hannah does.

92. Dated someone (same person) more than once?

You mean like more than two dates with the same person? Or dated someone, broke up and then dated again? 1-yes, 2-no.

93. Had/Have a dog?

Yes. My late, loved Roz. She died last March. Here's a picture:

96. Been in a band?

Sang terribly with a terrible band (and I use the term "band" loosely--they knew two songs, tops, and not well) at oh, thirteen? But really, no.

97. Drank 25 sodas in a day?

No, but it's been my greatest dream....oh, wait. It hasn't.

98. Broken a CD?

Yeah. Last snowstorm I threw a scraper into my car and it landed on the seat and broke my Honky Chateau CD. I was Upset. See numerous above comments on rickafracka snow.

99.Shot a gun?

A rifle, is that the same? Something like ten years ago, on New Year's Eve, on Cape Breton Island. Yes, it was cold. But I make exception for Cape Breton, because it's freaking paradise no matter what the temperature is. *loves*

Wanted someone but could never have them?

Yes, well, Paul McCartney has always been quite unattainable, alas. But I have my Linda McCartney Meals to console myself.

And! Opening Day was thwarted for me because I have no radio, my telly is cable-less at the mo', and the online audio program was down. But we won, so all is grand anyway. *cheers*
