the bigass meme

a bunch of you did this meme recently, so i did it tooooo! man, it was long!

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now. × I don't watch much TV these days.  (oh please. while i mainly watch tv using the computer, i do watch a lot, haha.) I own lots of books.  (though not as many as most of my friends. most of my books are packed away, though . i even own stacks of books i've bought on sales to be read when i get "old." :))
× I wear glasses or contact lenses.  ((i will wear glasses in 10 years or so, though, like i did when i was a kid)) I love to play video games.  ((well, "like" is probably a better word than love. and i mainly like old school nintendo games like super mario bros and paperboy and such, i'm not smart enough for the newer games, the graphics have gotten too good)) × I've tried marijuana((have been around plenty of people who have though, but it just never interested me. i may or may not have suffered contact-highs, though, but not much, thank goodness. hey, i did go to college in america :)))
* * * * *
I've watched porn movies. × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
I curse sometimes.  (sometimes? -sometimes-? hee.) × I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.  ((i'm hoping most people i know doing this meme will not check-mark this one - it just sounds creepy!))
× I have broken someone's bones. I have a secret that I am ashamed to reveal. × I hate the rain.
I'm paranoid at times.  ((my favourite has always been all the times i used to start to seriously suspect everybody could hear my thoughts, especially on the bus. obviously, i then had to try and have "fake" thoughts just in case. :))) I would get plastic surgery if it were 100% safe, free of cost, and scar-free. I need/want money right now.  (why wouldn't i want money right now?! however, i don't really sit here pining for it. i'm doing fine.)
× I love sushi(I AM ANTI-SUSHI. THANK YOU.) I talk really, really fast. × I have fresh breath in the morning.
I have long hair.  (it's also pretty thin, and reedy. think sea-weed, but orange-red...) × I have lost money in Las Vegas. I have at least one sibling.  (i have one and a half.)
I was born in a country outside of the U.S.  (well duh. :)) I have worn fake hair/fingernails/eyelashes in the past.  (...but not seriously. just for fun photo's and such.) × I couldn't survive without Caller I.D.
I like the way that I look.  (ask me again tomorrow..) × I have lied to a good friend in the last 6 months.  ((well, that i can remember :))) I am usually pessimistic.  (actually, i'm a very perky pessimist. i'm so sure everything's going to hell that i constantly laugh about it, leading people to think i'm quite the optimist. hahaha.)
I have a lot of mood swings. I think prostitution should be legalized.  (eh. i don't have a big thought-out idea on this. i'm thinking legalization would potentially make it safer for a lot of people working in the industry?) × I slept with a roommate(...i suppose it's all in the definition. :))
× I have a hidden talent. I'm always hyper no matter how much sugar I have.  (okay, i wasn't going to check the box because i spend a lot of my time NOT hyper, but then i figure, compared to most people i meet... yeah, i'm pretty fucking hyper, haha.) × I have a lot of friends(i wouldn't say a lot. however, the ones i have, i'm quite pleeeased to know.)
I have pecked someone of the same sex.  (pecked? haha... now there's a way to put it?!) I enjoy talking on the phone.   (eh. 3+ years at a call center... i don't know that enjoy is the right word, but it doesn't freak me out. :)) × I practically live in sweatpants or PJ pants.
× I love to shop and/or window shop. × I'm obsessed with my Xanga or Livejournal. × I'm completely embarrassed to be seen with my mother(noooo. while i sometimes AM embarrassed by my mother, i enjoy hanging out with her. she's a fun lady.)

× I currently like/love someone.  (pfffft. like i'd tell in a meme if i did, hahaha.) I have no idea what I want to do for the rest of my life. I want to have children in the future.  (I BELIEEEVE THAT CHIIIILLIN ARE OUR FUUUTUUUUURE.... okay, no. but i do want one, simply because i'm curious.)
I have changed a diaper before. × I've called the cops on a friend before. × I'm not allergic to anything.  (nothing serious, though. i'm allergic to my own cat, it that usually passes after a while, and my skin doesn't like when i shower. have yet to figure out if it's a soap-thing, or the actual water my skin doesn't like..)
I have a lot to learn.  (who doesn't?!) × I am shy around the opposite sex.  (eh. i don't have the energy for that anymore.) × I'm online 24/7, even as an away message.  (no, more like... 12/7. i'm a bit online at work, and quite online when i get home, but it fluctuates more than when i was younger and seriously in love with ze internet.)
× I have at least 5 away messages saved. I have tried alcohol or drugs before. × I have made a move on a friend's significant other or crush in the past.  (dude, noooooo.)

× I would die for my best friends(er.. well, i would donate an organ for a couple of them, if that helps??) I'm obsessive, and often a perfectionist.  (well, obsessive, yes, perfectionist... neh.) × I have used my sexuality to advance my career.  (HAHAHA. I WORK AT A CALL CENTER. no. that'd be quite the waste. :D)
× I think Halloween is awesome because you get free candy.  (no, i think halloween is awesome because you get to dress up all day and nobody can say a thing about it.) × I have dated a close friend's ex. I am happy at this moment.  (albeit annoyed because i'm sick.)
× I'm obsessed with guys. × Democrat. × Republican.
I don't even know what I am.  ((i'm assuming this means where i stand politically, heh)) × I am punk rockish. × I go for older guys/girls, not younger.  (now why excluuuuuude anybody because they're younger? silly meme. older, younger, whatever. if it's right, it's right.)
× I study for tests most of the time.  (of course, i didn't back when i was in school/college either.) × I tie my shoelaces differently from anyone I've ever met. I can work on a car.  (what? i'm not saying i could actually FIX anything, hahaha. i can still work on a car, can't i? :D)
× I love my job(s)(er....) I am comfortable with who I am right now. × I have more than just my ears pierced(i did try to pierce my nose once - i got halfway and decided it was too tough getting the needle through so i stopped.)

× I hate office jobs(i like office jobs, but of course, i'm not sure working at a call center or a student newspaper qualifies as office jobs. i do love office equiptment, if that means anything? and guys in white shirts. um. what was the question again??) I went to college out of state.  (....well, out of COUNTRY, if that counts.) × I am adopted.
× I am a pyro.   (ew, no.) I have thrown up from crying too much. I have been intentionally hurt by people that I loved.
× I fall for the worst people.  (i think i fall for good people, haha - they're just not always good for -me- specifically.) I adore bright colours. × I usually like covers better than originals.   (it depends though, of course. i much prefer jeff buckley's "hallelujah" to the original, and i do love a whole lot of covers...)
× I hate chain theme restaurants like Applebees and TGIFridays(some of my best memories are hanging out at such places. however, the food never stood out to me... just good company.) I can pick up things with my toes. × I can't whistle(i'm terrible at it, though, and tend to start laughing whenever i try, so then i can't purse my lips because i'm laughing too hard.. it's fun. i envy those who are good at it, though.)
I have ridden/owned a horse.  (i thought it would be more fun than it was. i vastly preferred riding my first bike and pretending it was a horse when i was a kid - i tied ribbon to it so it had a tail and everything.) × I still have every journal I've ever written in.  (no. and this used to worry me. now i hope they just got lost in some move. see - much simpler having an online journal, haha.) × I talk in my sleep.  (i sigh funny, though, and sometimes snore.)
× I've often thought that I was born in the wrong century(ghod no. i'm way too comfortable as a person, i can't imagine surviving in a different century.) I try to forget things by drowning them out with loads of distractions. × I wear a toe ring.

× I enjoy a nice glass of wine with dinner.  (ew, no. i dislike most wine.) × I'm an artist. × I am ambidextrous.
× I sleep with so many stuffed animals, I can hardly fit on my bed.  (no, i just sleep with so many pillows, i can hardly fit on my bed. does that count?) × If it weren't for having to see other people naked, I'd live in a nudist colony(EW. NO.) × I have terrible teeth(they're not terrible, but they do need attention soooon or they will be!)
× I hate my toes(but whyyyy? no.) I did this meme even though I wasn't tagged by the person who took it before me.  (? i was just bored. was i supposed to be tagged?) I have more friends on the internet than in real life.  (although i do consider most of my internet friends good friends in real life too, so... i don't know. maybe? we all live far apart so i can't see most of them irl often, but if we could, i would??)
I have lived in either three different states or countries.  (but only because i count sweden + usa (nc), and blekinge + stockholm...) I am extremely flexible.  (well, not freakishly so, but some ways bend more than others. :)) × I love hugs more than kisses(pffft.)
I want to own my own business.  (because i think if i focused enough, i could bring something good out. however, i doubt i ever will..) × I smoke(EW. NO.) I spend way too much time on the computer than on anything else.  (except for sleeping, i guess?)
× Nobody has ever said I'm normal(well, i can't recall discussing the topic much, but i consider myself very normal so i'm sure some other people do to, and may have said so?) Sad movies, games, and the like can cause a trickle of tears every now and then.  (oh please. american idol, mooshy commercials, lifetime tv-movies, sitcoms, general happiness for friends... my tear ducts like to flow often and freely.) × I am proficient in the use of many types of firearms and combat weapons.  (no, although i could probably peg you with a soft air gun pretty well. :P)
I like the way women look in stylized men's suits.  (HOT. sometimes. :D) I don't like it when people are unpleased or seem unpleased with me. × I have been described as a dreamer or likely to have my head up in the clouds.
I have played strip poker with someone else before. I have had emotional problems for which I have sought professional help. × I believe in ghosts and the paranormal.  (nah. however, i do have stories even i can't explain, but i'm still sure there's some rational explanation somewhere for them...)
× I can't stand being alone(pffft.) I have at least one obsession at any given time.  (they pass quickly, though.) × I weigh myself, pee/poo, and then weigh myself again.  (ew. no. (i only step on scales if i'm at the doctor's, and that usually only happen once every few years. have mirror. don't see the point?))
× I consistently spend way too much money on obsessions-of-the-moment. × I'm a judgmental asshole(well, i do judge a lot, but i keep almost all of it in my head and am always incredibly quick to amend my view on a person as soon as i have reason to.) × I'm a HUGE drama-queen(no, i don't believe i am. however, i am quite vocal as a person and may seem more dramatic than i actually am? eh, you tell me.)
I have travelled on more than one continent. × I sometimes wish my father would just disappear.  (nah. he was pretty unavailable for most of my first 20 years alive. i do wish he wouldn't call multiple times a day when he knows i'm home because i'm running out of things to say. :)) I need people to tell me I'm good at something in order to feel that I am.  (i need a lot of validation for most things. i do have a few areas i feel very confident about, though.)
× I am a Libertarian. I can speak more than one language.  (i've studied a lot of languages, but have forgotten most. i enjoy being fluent in swedish and english. that'll have to do.) I can fall asleep even if the whole room is as noisy as it can be.
× I would rather read than watch TV.  (pfffft.) × I like reading fact more than fiction.  (however, i do like both. :)) I have pulled an all-nighter on an assignment I was given a month to do.  (hahah you say that like it's a one-time thing! amateur - i would pull an all-nighter and STILL procrastinate and go to class and lie, lie lie and get an extension and STILL procrastinate and then pull two more all-nighters in a row and then finally finish the damn thing 10 minutes before i knew the teacher would actually leave the campus. more than once, might i add. :D)
× I have no piercings. I have spent the night in a train station or other public place.  (well, i went from north carolina - arizona and back via greyhound bus. i rarely slept, though.) × I have been so upset over my physical gender that I cried.
× I once spent Christmas completely alone because there was a miscommunication on which parent was supposed to have me that night. There have been times when I have wondered "Why was I born?" and may/may not have cried over it.  (i -was- a drama-queen in private as a teenager, what can i say? :)) × I like most animals better than most people.  ((my cat ranks above quite a few people, though))
× I own a collection of retro games consoles(nooo. i have nintendo NES on my computer though so i can play paperboy and kid icarus and super mario bros. i wish i had a commodore 64 simulator so i could play giana sisters!) × The thought of physical exercise makes me shiver. I have hit someone with a dead fish.  (well, technically, it was a dead eel, and even more technically, i just had to throw the dead eel that had a string tied to it at a classmate so he could thread the string under his clothes using the dead eel as a "needle" the way i had. eh, high school. heheheheh.)
× I am compulsively honest((i wouldn't say compulsively, but i am quite, quite honest more than i think i sometimes should.)) × I was born with a congenital birth defect that has never been repaired. × I have danced topless in front of dozens of complete strangers.
× I have gone from wishing I was a girl to revelling in being a boy to feeling like a girl again in the span of five minutes, and not cared a whit for my actual sex. I am unashamedly bisexual, and have different motivations for my desires for different genders.  (i'm not sure i understand the "have different motivations" bit, really (people are either hot or not, haha) but whatever.) × I sometimes won't sleep a whole night or eat a whole day because I forget to.  (no no. i'm always very aware, haha.)
× I find it impossible to get to sleep without some kind of music on. × I dislike milk(no, i looooove milk. i've cut down drinking milk but enjoy dairy products quite a lot.) × I obsessively wash my hands.  (only obsessively if i'm cooking meat of some kind. ew.)
× I always carry something significant around with me.  (not really, but i do tend to wear my grandmother's necklaces 4-5 days/week...) × Sometimes I'd rather wear a wig in day-to-day life than use my own hair.  (haha noooo, i'd look stupid. i do love wigs, though.) I've pushed myself to become more self-aware and thereby more aware of others.
× Even though I live on my own I still cry sometimes because I miss my mother(nah. we talk almost every day on the phone. it's cool.) × I hand wrote all the HTML tags in this document.  (? no, it was already pre-formated? however, i handwrite the HTML tags on all websites i do because i'm too lazy to learn how to use a program.) I've liked something which a majority of people claimed was either bad or weird.
× I have been clinically dead for a brief period of time. × Instead of feeling sympathy/empathy with people and their problems, I simply become annoyed.  (sometimes, though, definitely. especially when their problems are far exaggerated to elicit sympathy.) × I participate/have participated in auto drag races and won.
× I do not 'get' most comedy acts(oh, i get them - i just don't always laugh at the acts, heh.) I don't think strippers are money-greedy or slutty for dancing. I don't like to chew gum.  (eh, i find it pointless, i prefer candy/food or nothing. chewing until the flavor goes and then spitting it out makes no sense to me.)
× I am obsessed with history/historical things and can't wait for someone to build a time machine so I can be the first to use it.  (oh i'm a wuss, i wouldn't. i do quite enjoy learning more about history and seeing historical things and sights for myself.) × I can never remember for the life of me where I parked the car. I had the TEEN ANGST thing going for at least 2-3 years.  (2-3 years? HAHAHAHHAA. i think mine started when i was a sullen 5-year-old.)
I wish people would be more empathic and honest with each other. × I play Dungeons and Dragons weekly.  (dude, no! when i was a kid, i always wanted to because it sounded so magical! then i got to watch my cousin and his friends play and was completely let down to learn it was all just some talk and dice-rolling and whatnot. not the saaaaame.) I love to sing.  (i just don't sing well! :D SINGSTAR 4-EVA, BABY!!)
× I want to live in my mother's basement when I grow up.  (ewww, why??) I have a custom-built computer.  (i think? i sat down with some computer-savvy friends and ordered what parts i wanted my computer to be made from and the online store built it and shipped to me.. that's what you mean, right?) × I want to create a certain someone's babies, even though there's a 0% possiblity of ever achieving it.
× I would be in a relationship with one of my pets if they were human.  (okay, i love my cat, but like janeane says.. love your pets, but don't LOOOOOVE your pets.... hahaha.) × I've gone skinny-dipping(ew, no.) I've performed in three plays.  (as a kid. i was terrible. hahah. i played a king, and a male thief named max, and a ghost dad (you bet i was bitter with the pretty girls who actually got to PLAY girls, haha!), and i've played santa's wife! all before the age of 12, i think.)
I enjoy burritos.  (mmmmm, burriiiitos! i especially liked the enormous veggy burritors a student place in north carolina made. it's called cosmic cantina?) × I'm Irish and loving it. I have a thing for redheads.  (duh.:))
× I am a twin(man, that would be scary.) × Most of the times, I'd rather do something intellectual instead of doing something generically 'fun'. × Once I set out to finish something, I always stay at it until it is completed before I move on to something else.  (hahahahaha. no. unless it's a small task, like uploading photo's from my camera and getting them online before i go to bed after having been to an event.)
I wish there were a way to erase past mistakes.  (yeah. not many, but just a few.) × I sleep more than 12 hours a day.  (no. but ask me again in late fall...) × I wish I could be prouder of what I've accomplished, but it's never enough.  (nah, i try very hard to just be proud and enjoy life as it is.)
× I need more time to myself.  (eh. sometimes, but not right now. :)) × I wish I was more open-minded. × I hope that I go really prematurely grey.  (haha, what an odd thing to hope for! if it happens, it happens, but considering my mom and dad (both in their mid-sixties and neither with more than a sprinkle of grey each), i doubt it'll happen anytime soon. i'm curious to see what shade i'll get, though? i'm thinking more on the white/blonde side than grey. i do hope to get old enough to find out, though)
I download songs from the internet.  (duh.) × I've just reenacted chapter 58 of Death Note with my best friend.  (...what?) × I say random things to freak people out.
× I'm still a little mad about the ending of Death Note(...what?!) × I love playing Truth or Dare(neh. i do recall it being a good vehicle to be "forced" into snogging people you wanted to snog but were too shy to ever get around to, but that was what, before we all turned 12-13 or something, haha.) × I love listening to slow music, but I hate singing to it.
× Music helps me remember that I am not alone.  (actually, it tends to remind me that i am. sometimes that's not so bad, though.) × Playing my favorite sport makes me temporarily forget my problems. I think this survey is particularly long.  (seriously! superlong.)
× I prefer my LJ friends to my real-life ones.  (eh. they kind of go together, lucky me. :D) × I can only hate someone that I love.  (? no no. no love required.) × I've ordered an extra two shots of espresso to an Americano at Starbucks(ew, no.)

I thought pecking meant, eh, fucking. Seeing as EVERYONE who does this meme apparently have done so, I cheekily assume that is not the case.

Pecking = "tørre" kyss :)

Haha, takk for oppklaringen. Jeg tror faktisk ikke jeg har hørt uttrykket før, så hjernen min tenkte "pecker".

Tue, Jul. 18th, 2006 12:47 pm (UTC)
somabish: hahahaha

no no - think "peck on the cheek" for terminology reference, i think.

i was confused at first as well - especially considering all those weird, weird questions with heavy gender stuff (have you ever cried because you thought you were a girl but was a boy but then realized you actually WERE a girl or whatever the fuck it was?!), i too interpreted it as, er, well, fucking. hahaha. but then realized nah, most of the people checking the box didn't strike me as meaning that. oh well. hahaha.
