try to catch the deluge in a paper cup

Question meme from shayheyred (who is made of awesome, btw):

What colour is your bra today?

Damask-y white. Non-LJ friend Linda gave me a whole bag of bras when I was down to two that were falling apart, so I'm not choosy.

Do you swear a lot?

Yeah, but mostly for emphasis. It's not like I'm all "I went to the effing store to buy some effing milk and then came the eff home and took a nap in my mothereffing bed" or anything.

I use "fuck" to be emphatic. "This colour looks fucking insane on this wall", and I always use the italics. I also like "fuck-all" and derivatives thereof. Fuck is a lovely, versatile word.

Do you burp in front of guys?

I try not to burp in front of anyone. It's rude. Guys shouldn't do it, either, y'know?

Do you straighten your hair?


Do you worry about the size of your boobs?

Not in the slightest.

What's your favorite girl magazine?

Midwifery Today. It's the ultimate girl mag.

Do you wear clothes/shoes/jewelry that are uncomfortable?

Not for all the tea in china. Whatever that means. Occasionally new stuff gets uncomfortable after I'm wearing it and I have to keep it on because I'm not home, but I won't wear anything that binds/pinches/itches/chafes/etc. if I can help it.

Did you ever spend all day/night getting pretty for a guy?

No. When I was younger I didn't need that long, and now there aren't any guys to get pretty for, and anyway, it still wouldn't take me that long. What kind of primping takes all day?

Did you ever cry during a romantic movie?

The last time I cried over TV or movie media was probably the last episode of M*A*S*H (although the last episode of Slings & Arrows was touch and go for awhile) You know the part with the baby? I sobbed, slammed the TV off and stormed around the room crying. I still can't watch that scene. It even bothers me knowing it's on, even if the TV's turned off. I'll watch the rest of it, though, because it's a kickass episode.

I do cry over books. Really, I've been known to blubber. I've thrown a book across the room a couple of times, but that only happened during one story *coughDarkTowercough*

Would you leave the house without makeup on?

I don't wear makeup very often. Partly it's because I have chronic problems with my eyes, part is because I'm lazy, and part is because I often can't find the rickafrakka makeup.

On the scale of 1-10 how fun is shopping?

Depends on what I'm shopping for. Clothes in the mall? Negative seven. I hate the mall, hate the dressing rooms, hate the muzak in the stores. Thrift shops, which are more than awesome, I give an eight. Eight also for funky little stores that sell stuff that isn't trendy or boring. Shopping for other things, like computers or yarn or books or paint? Nine. Gimme.

Are you spoiled?

Not for material things, really. I hate housework, though, so I generally just don't do it. I pay i_am_a_hannah and mr_t00by and they do it instead. Why else does one have kids? *g*

Do you think lipgloss is the best?

I wear clear lip gloss. I like it, but it doesn't stay on because I have the patented Paul Gross Lip Thing of Doomtm. I lick or bite any lip gloss off within minutes. If I want to keep any gloss-type product on I make sure the bottle/tube is in my pocket so I can apply it every five minutes.

How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?

I get ready in the afternoon, and less than a half-hour, not counting a shower.

Do you wear sweatpants/pajama pants to school?

School? I haven't been in a go-to-class kind of school in years. But no. My mother would never have let me out of the house like that in high school, and it wouldn't have gone over well in nursing school.

Do you like skater boys? I'm sure they're very nice. I'll have to ask mr_t00by about it, since he's their age.

Is pink the best colour in the world?

I like ashes-of-roses and mauve, and occasionally fuschia. I love pink on men. It's finally acceptable, but they missed out for years, IMO. The best colours in the world are emerald green, dark green, and black.

Have you ever dressed unlike yourself to impress a guy?

I don't think so. I've dressed nice to impress a guy, probably, but it was nice in clothes I like.

Do you often wish there was something in the past you could change?

Sure. What does that have to do with being girly?

Do you dress up too much for holidays?

Dude. You should see me on National Shrimp Scampi Day.

Do you write a lot of mushy love poems?

No, I write a lot of mushy fic.

On a scale of 1-10 how much do guys confuse you?

Dude, everyone confuses me, but I give as good as I get. So eight.

So, I don't think I'm very girly. I'm not sure what I am, actually.
