Many question meme

Ganked from like half the flist.

4. What time is your alarm clock set to?
8:00. I don't actually turn it on most days though.

5. Do you still remember the first person you kissed?
Yeppers. Nothing too interesting to it, but I remember it.

6. Do you remember where you were on 11/9/01?
Yes. I was at my apartment and knew nothing. I went up to school and started talking to my friends about nothing and one of them finally said, "Do you have a clue what's going on?" I guess my dumbfounded look was enough of an answer and they explained that planes had hit the towers. I think the first one had already collapsed but I was watching the TV when the second one went down.

7. Would you rather take the picture or be in the picture?
Depends. If it is individual shots, I'd rather take it. If it is group shots, I'd rather be in it. I'm really a fan of both, though.

8. What was the last movie you watched?
I think the last one at the theater was 27 Dresses, which I thought was an enjoyable, if typical, romantic comedy. The last one period was probably Factory Girl at Libby and Melissa's apartment.

9. Do any of your friends have children?
Not any of my close friends. Pretty much everyone I know is a grad student and the number of kids in that population is fairly small.

10. Has anyone ever called you lazy?
Probably. I don't remember a specific. I'm more of a busy procrastinator than lazy, though.

11. Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep?

12. What CD is currently in your CD player?
A random assortment of lullabies that I play at night while trying to fall asleep. Falling asleep is an ordeal for me most nights.

13. Do you prefer regular or chocolate milk?
I am a fan of both but drink regular more often.

14. Has anyone told you a secret this week?
Not that I recall.

15. When was the last time you had Starbucks?
I don't remember. I used to be at a B&N café that serves Starbucks stuff pretty much every day but it's been a while now.

16. Can you whistle?
Yeppers. My conscience never comes running when I do though. I guess that's what happens when you aren't a puppet and your conscience isn't a cricket.

17. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?
Smile or lack thereof and eyes.

18. What are you looking forward to?
Spring Break

19. Did you watch cartoons as a child?

20. Do you own any band t-shirts?
Maybe a couple.

21. What will you be doing in one hour?
Going up to school to hopefully get some help from the insurance coordinator (since the insurance is refusing to pay any of my $250 doctor visit), then sit in my office for an hour, and finally have class.

22. Is anyone in love with you?
My family loves me but no one is in love with me that I know of.

23. What was the last song you heard?
Does the one I'm currently hearing count or does it have to be the one before that? The answers are Have A Nice Day, Bon Jovi and Ethelene (the Truck Stop Queen), Ray Stevens.

24. Last time you cried?
I don't remember.

25. Are you on a desktop computer or a laptop?

26. Are you currently wanting any piercings or tattoos?

27. What’s the weather like?
I haven't been outside so I'm taking the word of Google Desktop's weather gadget that is it 52 degrees and sunny.

28. Would you ever date a girl/guy covered in tattoos?
I have before. That one didn't work out but I see no reason to let that prejudice me against someone in the future.

29. What did you do before this?
Finished up my lecture for today. We're doing World War I.

30. When is the last time you slept on the floor?
I've no idea.

31. How many hours of sleep do you need to function?
I am a fan of eight to nine but can function short-term on less.

32. Do you eat breakfast daily?
I try to but sometimes I don't.

33. Are your days fast-paced?
I'm very busy but most of what I do is more meticulous and detail oriented than fast-paced.

34. What did you do last night?
Worked on my WWI lecture while watching the CSI marathon.

35. Do you use sarcasm?
Nope. Never. I don't even know what the word means.
Has anyone answered that question with a straight-forward "yes" or serious "no" rather than using sarcasm?

36. How old will you be turning on your next birthday?

37. Are you picky about spelling and grammar?
I can be. There is one commercial that drives me batty right now because this kid says. "I put it on in the evening and when I get up in the morning you don't have acne."

38. Have you ever been to Six Flags?
Which one? I have been to the original Six Flags over Texas in Arlington, Six Flags Astro World in Houston, and Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio. I don't think I've been to any of the others. Trivia question: can anyone name the six flags that have flown over Texas thus providing the name of the theme parks?

39. Do you get along better with the same sex or the opposite sex?
Whichever. Most of my friends in high school were female, in undergrad they were male, and in grad school they're female. Of course most has never meant all so those are just general trends.

40. Do you like mustard?

41. Do you sleep on your side?
I think so. Since I'm asleep I'm not 100% positive. I can fall asleep on my stomach, side, or back (only if I have raised pillows) but some of my problems with my left shoulder seem to indicate that I sleep on that side too much.

42. Do you watch the news?
No. I read stuff online.

43. How did you get one of your scars?
When I was about two, my folks were putting in some shelves. The boards were leaning against one wall and I apparently kept running under them. My mom was vacuuming in the living room and could hear my sister saying over and over "Stay out from under there or you're going to get hurt!" Then she heard a thud, a moment of silence, my sister yelling "I told you so!" and finally me screaming my head off. She was coming to check when I met her part way with blood gushing down my face. I'd been under the board, hit the base of it so it slid out, and the top hit me upside the head on the way down. I've got a little straight line of a scar from the edge right at my hairline.

44. Who was the last person to make you mad?
I'm not sure. I could name a few people to annoy me but I don't know about actually making me mad.

45. Do you like anybody?

46. What is the last thing you purchased?
The pizza I really didn't need but really wanted for dinner last night.

47. What side of the heart do you draw first?

48. Can you dive without plugging your nose?
Dive, yes. Jump in feet first, no.

49. What colour is your razor?

50. What is your blood-type?
Interesting question. I wish I could answer with any degree of confidence. When I was born, they tested me and said I was O+. When I donated blood they tested me and said I was B+. Either of these results is possible based on my folks' blood-types. Since it is impossible for blood to change type as far as I know, one of the testings must have been wrong or else I got switched with someone else at some point and am not really me.

51. Who would you want to be tied to for 24 hours?
I've no idea. I'm sure I could be fine with almost anyone but I think I'd prefer someone I know. Or I could go for the obvious answer of JKR so I can pump her for information.

52. What is a rumour someone has spread about you?
One year at Girl Scout Camp a couple of girls convinced everyone else in my group that one of my friends and I were gay. Even in middle school, I was more annoyed by the "Gross," "Surely they wouldn't let someone like that attend camp," and other reactions than by the apparently intended insult.

53. How do you feel about carrots?
I like baby carrots.

54. How many chairs at the dining room table?
Two chairs and two stools.

55. Which is the best Spice Girl?
I think I could name a few but I wouldn't be able to identify any of them or their music. They are all just a muddle to which I'm indifferent.

56. Do you know what time it is?
I don't. My laptop does, though. It says it is 12:38.

57. Do you know all the words to the Fresh Prince Theme Song?
Most of them.

58. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator?
Talk to the other people if others were with me, read a book if I had one with me, pout and sing songs in my head or out loud if I had neither company nor a book.

59. What’s your favourite kind of gum?
Double Bubble Fruit Flavors

60. T or F: All’s fair in love and war?
False for love. I'm undecided about war. I think the fiction that war can be civilized may actually cause more harm to society as a whole than would a recognition that war is terrible and we shouldn't pretend it isn't by placing limitations on it.

61. Do you have a crush on anyone?

62. Do you know how to use some words correctly, but not know the meaning?
Yes, though it is more likely that I know how to use a word and what it means but have no idea how to pronounce it.

63. Do you like to sleep?
I think of it as a not unpleasant necessity but I wouldn't say I really like it.

64. Do you know which US states don’t use Daylight Savings Time?
Hawaii, Arizona, and parts of Indiana. No. Indiana just changed a few years ago to observe it in the entire state. Most of the territories and protectorates don't observe it either because they are tropical.

65. Do you know the song Total Eclipse of the Heart?

66. Do you want a bright yellow ‘06 mustang?

67. What’s something you’ve always wanted?
I'm totally stealing mrstater's answer: The Beast's library in Beauty and the Beast.

68. Do you have hairy LEGS?
No. I shaved day before yesterday.

69. Would you rather swim in the ocean or a lake?
Lake. I like clear and pretty oceans, but salt water in my mouth is a bit annoying.

70. Do you wear a lot of black?
Not particularly.

71. Describe your hair
Long, dark blonde, very thin and straight.

72. Do you have Entomophobia?
I don't know what that is. I'm not aware of having any phobias at all, though, so I'm going to say no.

73. Are you an adult?
Yes but not a grown-up. I'll never grow up.

74. Where is/are your best friend(s)?
I'm not sure who I'd call my best friend so I can't answer that question.

75. Do you have a tan?

76. Are you a television addict?
Not really though I've watched more TV over the past month than probably the six months before that.

77. Do you enjoy spending time with your mother?
Most of the time.

78. Are you a sugar freak?

79. Do you like orange juice?
It is one of my two favorite single-fruit juices. Apple is the other for the curious amongst you.

Exploring: Bed
