First childhood friend?
Hmm... difficult to say, especially since I left those friends pretty quick and my
childhood memory ain't that good. First one might have been Adam... who was
ruthlessly cruel to me. Can't blame him though, I doubt his masculising identity knew
what to do with my caring and sensitive demeanour. When I joined school, I kinda
flitted between friendship groups, but I think my main friend was called... Dan.
Nope. I tried at various points of my childhood and early adolescence to contact them
again, but failed every time.
How many times have you moved in your life?
Have you ever been in love?
About a bazillion times.
At what age would you say you stopped being a kid?
This question is really difficult. I don't really seem to have this romantic view of
my childhood that other people seem to have, and by no means do I yearn to return to
it. I think my last shot at a happy childhood ended midway through Year 3, just after
my Birthday, when I changed primary schools for the last time. I think that must have
been just after my eighth birthday. For a few reasons, that's when I'd say my
Someone I love. Gosh, you don't even know how much that affects me.
Enjoy gloomy/rainy days?
Have any good-luck charms?
I have a funny attitude towards 'good-luck charms'. The only things that could be
said to have functioned as such, were really just little objects I got attached to
and would take keep with me for comfort. There were a few of these things, most of
which I still have. A bolt, one silver coloured one brass coloured. A small plastic
cat, black with white feet, which I think might be my longest kept, though I don't
have it with me now. For a long time, probably since my mid-teens, my coat has been
my main comforter. I've had three, all big and thick, one black and kind'f coarse on
the outside, the next one was similar but more synthetic on the outside (that one
lasted years, I only gave it up a few months ago, so that makes probably just under
four years), and my current one. My current one is different to my other coats, in
that it is long down to below my knees, tweed, and kinda patterned. I loves it. I
even had a strange attachment to coats back when I was young. I had a huuuuge (on me
at the time) yellow coat, with massive pockets (all my coats have big pockets, I wish
my current one had more). I must have looked ADORABLE.
At five years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A scientist, I think. At least, that was my first career ambition. I dunno if I even
had one when I was five. Probably not.
I don't want to work. If people want to pay me for writing what I want to anyway,
though, that's cool.
Can you read music?
No. Well, vaguely, and only percussion, so it doesn't really count.
Speak another language?
Mein Deutsche ist nicht so gut.
What's your favorite cereal?
Crumpets. I don't care if they're not a cereal, they're my favourite.
You opinion of the 80s?
I want the USSR back.
Given the chance, would you become a hippie?
'Given the chance'? What does that mean? Who hands out hippie cards? SOCIETY?
Let's hear a philosophical statement about the nature of reality:
Oh I wish you knew, how I'd love to elope with you... in a hovercraft... miles above
Tell me that's not philosophical and get STRUCK DOWN IN VICIOUS DEBATE.
If you could go anywhere, where would you go?
Who would you want to be stranded on an island with?
grace. I've been contemplating her lately, actually.
But why's the rum gone?
Because it was never there.
Did you read a lot when you were a kid?
Quite a bit.
Not as much as I should. I've been getting better though. Reading quite a bit
Ever watched cheesy sci-fi shows like farscape and buffy?
Sorry? FarScape is great.
Does reality TV not suck and make you feel ashamed of humanity?
The funny thing about reality TV is that it is almost entirely a reflection of the
media, and the media aims to reflect the masses' desires. Hmm. Not that funny,
Do you like Broadway musicals?
If so, name a favourite:
Like instrumental movie soundtracks?
They're mostly pretty mediocre.
Like indie movies?
Have a favourite composer?
Do you have a role model?
Did you when you were younger?
What superhero did you always pretend to be as a kid?
Favourite disney movie?
Did you have any mortal enemies in elementary school?
A bit. Not very much. The one I did, I had a dream about him dying, and then realised
I didn't hate him as much as I thought, and did all I could to remedy our
differences. Moved school before any of that worked.
When, would you say, was the best time of your life?
Not sure. There have been a few nice times. Sustained times? Seeing Dowell and Alex,
a few times that weren't individual in setting enough for me to reference, but mostly
involving specific people.
What are you looking forward to most in life?
How do you express yourself?
Hmm, writing mostly, I guess.
Do you watch anime?
Occasionally. I got very into Azumanga for a while.
If so, purist or dubbie?
I am a purist in all senses.
If you could have one superpower:
I'd SAY mind reading, but that might possibly dullify all the exciting things in my
life. Perhaps very clouded mindreading, or irresistible charm. Yeah, I like that last
If you could be any animal:
What movie made you want your 7 bucks and 2 hours back?
Prime. It was really, really, bad.
What movie scared the crap out of you?
Never watch scary films.
Made you cry (even if you won't admit it)?
Good Bye Lenin, oddly enough.
What movie do you love even though you know it's stupid?
Favourite monty python skit:
Favourite toy when you were a kid:
Still have it?
Do you still dress up for Halloween?
What embarrassing/amusing incident do your friends always love to bring up?
The only lapses I have are generally those of awkwardness, and few people bring those
up. I once ran into a door though, I guess that counts?
Do you blush?
Hate public speaking?
It makes me nervous, but I'm mostly good at dealing with it now. The secret is not to
prepare too much.
Hate traitorous movie directors and authors?
Do you think you were brainwashed as a little kid?
We all were!
Do you agree with the religion you were brought up with?
Wasn't brought up in one.
If not, do you plan on giving your children a choice in the matter?
I plan to not procreate.
What is your philosophy in life?
Never explain your philosophy in life.
Consider yourself an optimist or a pessimist?
Optimist. Anyone who calls themselves a realist... kick them in the face.
Do you frequently experience deja vu?
What little-known band/singer would you recommend to anyone?
Do you watch amusing flash animations (homestar, weebl, legendary Frog)?
Have a favourite animator?
What single event/person/thing has most changed your life?
Hmm, probably reading Evasion, aside from the obvious.
What's your favourite Shakespeare play?
The one no one has read.
