Depends on if you wanted to take advantage of me. ;-)

Touché ^_^ And my mommy said not to give rides to strange people ... :D

Odd. I had a hard year in 98 too. What happened in your case? (If you care to discuss it. And you can always email me.)

Short story - years and years of pressure, overload, maintaining a facade of something approaching normalcy, and other stresses finally built up to a breaking point and I completely fell apart.

And how I could afford the trip from Oregon to Kansas? :-)

That too ^_^

Sex

Yes, there's never enough of it. :-D


*snort* You know what I mean. :-P

Eh, what do our mommies know? :-)

Ah yes, the dis-ease of pretending to be normal.

In my own case, I discovered some things about myself I didn't like. Struggled with them for a long time before coming to peace with them.

*snort* You know what I mean. :-P

01) Are you currently in a serious relationship? – No, and that’s how I want it.
02) What was your dream growing up? – To (a) have a career that showcased my academic intelligence (and, presumably, have no difficulty getting into said career) and (b) meet an awesome guy. So much for that!
03) What talent do you wish you had? – Any modicum of people skills would be helpful.
04) If I bought you a drink what would it be? – flavored iced tea
05) Favorite vegetable? – fresh green beans
06) What was the last book you read? – don’t remember; current read is The Dud Avocado by Elaine Dundy
07) What zodiac sign are you? – Virgo, year of the dragon
08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where. – Tattoos: unfortunately, two – a meaningless (sigh!) tribal design, intertwined with flowers, on my shoulder blade. Also a sun on my big toe. Piercings: standard earlobe, one in each ear.
09) Worst Habit? Not finishing what I start – see my userpic.
10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride? – Yes, but only if I could safely pull over without somebody blowing their friggin’ horn at me.
11) What is your favorite sport? – Running back and forth to the fridge.
12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude? – depends on the situation
13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me? – Freak out. I am mildly claustrophobic and therefore don't care much for elevators.
14) Worst thing to ever happen to you? – Probably the gradual realization that the employment world will always be difficult, if not impossible, for me to navigate.
15) Tell me one weird fact about you. – I have stuffed animals that I put out for holidays – bunnies for Easter, black cats for Halloween, penguins and Santas for Christmas, etc.
16) Do you have any pets? – Yes, I have a bunch of cats, but they are family pets – not really mine per se.
17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly? – I have no idea, seriously.
18) What was your first impression of me? – Interesting, cool, and fun.
19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary? – Neither/nor – I find them silly or maybe boring.
20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be? – Smaller body, smaller nose, better facial skin, hair that actually grows long and doesn’t break … oops! You said one thing, huh?
21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience? – conscience
22) What color eyes do you have? – brown
23) Ever been arrested? – nope
24) Bottle or can soda? – If we’re talking about 20-ounce plastic bottles, I’ll pick bottles. I’m not a fan of 2-liter bottles.
25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it? – I’d pay off some bills and hoard the rest. And I wouldn’t tell anyone!
26) Favorite band to listen to when you're mad? – don’t have one
27) What's your favorite place to hang out at? – At home, I guess.

29) Favorite thing to do in your spare time? – be on the Internet
30) Do you swear a lot? – Not a lot, no.
31) Biggest pet peeve? – Being called “ma’am” all the time. I don’t live anywhere near the South! Can’t we find another way to be polite without reminding people of which set of genitals they have?
32) In one word, how would you describe yourself? – Huh?
33) Do you believe/appreciate romance? – Yes, but not for myself.
34) Favourite and least favourite food? – Favorite would be chips and salsa, but from a taqueria or chain restaurant – not the best-selling store brands. Least favorite would be… uh… I guess coffee. I’ve tried, but I just can’t acquire a taste for it.
35) Do you believe in God? – Yes, but I don’t know what God is.
36) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you? – ok :)

34) Favourite and least favourite food? Favorite - anything Asian. Least favorite - I can't think of one.
35) Do you believe in God? I would like to, but it's never worked for me. Any god, which made me a really half-assed pagan. I'm not a rabid atheist, though - I don't necessarily think the existence or nonexistence of deity is really relevant for daily life, versus denying deity altogether.
36) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you? Sure!
