Thinking Questions

From versailles_rose

What is a question that people ask you that always gets on your nerves?
"Do you want a ride?"

Name something you have in common with all your siblings.
We're all over 5'9".

What's the last thing you said to someone & to who?
"W_ T_ F_?" to the phone receiver. I'd picked it up after two rings but then nobody was there.

Name something you have to do tomorrow
Help a co-worker send out an e-newsletter to 17,000 people.

Have you ever called 911?
No, never.

Do you own an iPod?
No.

Do any of your friends have children?
No one close to me has kids, nor would they want any. I am on very friendly terms with lots of neighbors and coworkers with kids (including kids who are older than I am).

What CD is currently in your CD player?
Double-CD of cello concertos by Bela Bartok. (OMG, I do I love Bartok.)

Do you prefer regular or chocolate milk?
2% milk. I usually have 2-3 cups a day. But the best milk in the world is in Germany, esp. the "Bauermilch" from mountain cows.

Has anyone told you a secret this week?
Yes.

When was the last time you had Starbucks?
Although there are 5-6 of them in *walking* distance, I can't remember the last time. Probably a couple of years ago?

Can you whistle?
Yes.

Are you currently wanting any piercings or tattoos?
No.

Do you get along better with men or women?
I have equal problems with both (not understanding's women's obsession with certain stuff, not figuring how if guys are hitting on me) so I guess it's equal.

Do you sleep on your side, stomach, or back?
All three. Luckily the cat doesn't mind when I turn.

What are you listening to?
"DOOM," a streaming goth/industrial music from SomaFM.

Which of your friends lives closest to you?
malibran (Daniel).

What did you do yesterday?
Worked, recorded two audio commentaries for NPR's GetMyVote project, had some yogurt fresh from Germany, and watched TV with Caleb.

What big concerts are you looking forward to?
None that I know of. I love music but somehow even when there are free concerts easily available to me (I live across from the GSU School of Music), I don't go out for them.

What's bothering you right now?
I have this niggling feeling there's some client work I'm supposed to be doing right now.

Next vacation you're going on?
London / Berlin in June.

Last time you had butterflies in your stomach?
Yesterday, when I had a friend tell me that apparently they didn't think I was being a very good friend. I was very surprised.

What did you dream last night?
Usually I remember but for some reason, I don't remember last night's.

Does your phone ring in the middle of the night often?
If after 1 is "middle of the night," then no. Anytime before 1, I'm awake.

What gets in your way when you're sleeping?
Nerves.

What are you doing tomorrow?
Wait, this question was on here before!

What is something you've learned about yourself recently?
I need to work harder to show I care when I friend is in trouble, not withdraw away from them. I do care very much but I back off because I don't want to smother the person. This can be misinterpreted, however.

Who was the last person to make you cry?
Caleb.

What are you doing?
Digesting the yummy roast vegie dinner I had for dinner.

What is one thing you miss about your past?
Being a bunch skinnier.

Are you jealous of anyone?
People with reasonable amounts of vacation time.

Is anyone jealous of you?
Probably, but they are misguided.

Do you have a best friend?
Yes.

Do you regret anything that you have done in your life?
I regret putting off treatment for my depression for so damn long.

Have you ever been in the emergency room?
Not since I was 5. That year (jeez, 1979) I was in twice, one when I got a 2-in. splinter in my behind and another time, when my brother squooshed my finger in a door. Nothing broken.
