No one expects the Flist Inquisition

OK, everyone expects the Flist Inquisition. Especially when fun memes like this one start making the rounds.

The 'Ask Me 7 Questions' meme, snagged from jdbracknell and mrstater:

Not just any seven questions though. No, to keep it interesting, use the seven questions as per below - just copy and paste the following, replace the blanks with something you want to know/ask (e.g. 4. Donkeys or sandcastles and why?), anything you want, personal, silly, surreal or deep, comment away and I'll answer honestly as I can! Then post this in your own LJ and see what kind of things people want to ask you!

1. What do you think of _____________ ?

2. When did you last ____________?

3. __________ or ___________ and why?

4. What did you ______________?

5. What's your favorite ______________?

6. How would you ______________?

7. Who would you most like to ________ ?


What's Taters, Precious?

1. I like blueberries a lot. They don't like me quite so much. They have too many seeds for my messed-up intestines to handle. So I stick with blueberry flavored stuff. There was this blueberry ice cream that I had in Germany when I was there like 6 years ago that I still drool over. It was so yummy!

2. Uh... I've been reading more lately so it has probably been a while. I have an Indiana Jones novel on top of a stack of books by my bed right now and I occasionally glance at the cover and swoon a little inside, but serious ogling must have been when I last watched one of his movies which was probably three or four weeks ago now.

3. It depends. Out to eat, probably a cheeseburger. When I'm at a bar-b-q in someone's backyard, definitely a hot dog. Generally speaking, hamburgers at restaurants are very juicy and yummy whereas most people make hamburgers that are fairly dry at backyard bar-b-qs and I don't like that.

4. I've got folders for Harry Potter, Star Wars, Lego, and LJ in the big folders of My Docs and My Pics. All Lego stuff goes in the Lego folders, even if it is Harry Potter or Star Wars Legos. All LJ icons go in hte LJ folders, even if they are Star Wars or Harry Potter or Lego, but the main images from which I crop the icons would go in the folder for whatever it is. If that makes sense. So far it is working reasonably well.

5. Hmmm... It depends on what kind of dip I have. I'm not such a fan of chips on their own. I can probably eat bar-b-q potato chips dry better than anything else. Otherwise, I love Doritos old Taco flavored chips that I can't find anymore with chili-con-queso. I like plain tortilla chips with salsa. I like plain or bar-b-q potato chips with ranch dip.

6. Not very well I expect. I'm so picky about my food (both because of taste and my Chron's) and I rather like being clean. If I could keep using my library card, I'd be OK on the entertainment front, but I suspect the lack of an address and me beginning to stink would cause problems there.

7. I don't know. Someone good at it. Most of my exes sucked when they were willing to try so the thought doesn't really inspire romantic feelings and make me want to pick someone I've got a huge crush on or something.

1. I like him as a character for the series. He's nice and complicated. I think he is a pretty crappy person and nothing he went through justifies the way he treats all of his students, not just Harry. I really don't understand how people can be madly in love with him.

2. Not too long ago. Maybe around Christmas. Someone said they didn't think I could do it anymore so I did one. It wasn't particularly graceful, but it was definitely a cartwheel.

3. Chewie! Wicket is cute, but doesn't have much else going for him. Chewie is smart and strong and would be really handy to have around. I think I'd take the ewok who stole the speeder bike over Wicket, actually.

4. I was at Barnes & Noble writing my final exam and reading Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell when evening set in. I went to IHOP for breakfast-for-dinner, got s few things at Wal-Mart (milk, orange juice, and printer paper), and came home. I took a bath, read some more, played PackRat on FaceBook, read some more, and went to bed. I like those kind of evenings.

5. Cherries! I love me some cherries!

6. At the moment, freak out because I'm in my PJs and it would be weird having some old guy I don't know come strolling in my front door. If I were properly dressed, I'd treat him with some respect but I wouldn't be overly deferential because I'm not Catholic and I honestly don't think he has any special place with God or any right to tell other people what to think/believe/do. Not that I think everyone should agree with me and have problems with catholics believing otherwise. That's just my take on the situation.

7. Does someone I like count as an answer? I can't pick just off looks. There has to be emotion involved. Right now I'm not seeing anyone and I don't even have a crush on anyone so there really aren't any good options. :(

1. What do you think of spiders?

2. When did you last go for a walk?

3. Cricket or tennis and why?

4. What did you have for breakfast?

5. What's your favorite film?

6. How would you do in a zombie attack?

7. Who would you most like to tie up and ask embarrassingly personal questions?
bratty_jedi at 3:35 pm on 24 April 2008 (UTC) (Link)
1. I don't much care. If they're in my apartment, I'll try to get them out of it or kill them if they're someplace inconvenient for getting them out but convenient for killing. Or if I'm wearing nothing but a towel when I see them which happens more often than I'd like. If they're outside, I figure its a big world and I can share it with a few little spiders.

2. I went for a five-mile hike on Saturday. It was raining on Tuesday so I couldn't take my motorcycle to school and had to drive my car. That meant I had to park a five- to ten-minute walk from my office.

3. I guess tennis since I've never watched or played a game of cricket in my life. I suck at tennis and don't find it all that interesting to watch, though. I much prefer badminton.

4. Two pieces of toasted cinnamon swirl bread with butter, a small glass of orange juice, a small glass of milk, and a handful of pills.

5. Today I'll say Ever After. Ask me tomorrow and you'll probably get a different answer.

6. I think I could get on decently well. I'm not especially strong but I think I could outsmart them and I don't tend to panic in emergencies so that should help.

7. Does "No, seriously, why did you make everyone think you'd killed Remus and Tonks? They really were just sleeping, right?" count as embarrassingly personal? No, huh? Well, then I'm not so sure. I don't really want to know embarrassingly personal information about anyone. I guess I'll go with Harrison Ford because if I'm going to tie him up and ask questions it means I'll get to meet him and I'd really like to do that.

1. What do you think of Boba Fett?

2. When did you last write an actual handwritten letter?

3. Voldemort or Vader and why?

4. What did you last dream about?

5. What's your favorite band?

6. How would you escape a date that was clearly nosediving?

7. Who would you most like to direct a new Star Wars film (or redo an old one)?
bratty_jedi at 1:48 am on 27 April 2008 (UTC) (Link)
1. I like Boba Fett ok. I thought he was slightly more interesting when he was more mysterious and I'm not such a fan of the his new Clone Wars back story. I don't understand the obsession with him that some people have.

2. Do Christmas cards count? If so, January. If not, probably the February before I left San Antonio (so 2005). I'd been dating this guy for a few months and he dumped me. When I get dumped, I have a tendency to write letters to the guy in order to work through the emotions. Of course, I never intend to send the letters so maybe that doesn't count either. Uh... I had a penpal in middle school.

3. Vader. As a bad guy he was more successful (he was under the Emperor but they ruled for 20+ years before everything fell apart where as Voldie didn't even make it a year). Also, when given the chance, he turned back and was redeemed. I like that.

4. I never remember my dreams unless I wake up in the middle of them. The last one I remember was from sometime in the last summer or early fall. Despite the fact that I'd passed my comprehensive exams months before, I had a dream that I was taking my exams. In my dream, one of my professors failed me because I couldn't satisfactorily explain eighteenth-century boat making techniques. Boy am I glad that didn't come up on the real test!

5. My favorite singer is Ray Stevens who is best known for his comedy songs. That never changes. I take my moods on bands. Lately I've been in the mood for some good ol' Creedence Clearwater Revival.

6. I probably wouldn't. I'd try to find my own ways to have a good time while putting up with the guy for the evening and would try to gently (if needed because he thought things went well) make it clear at the end of the evening that another date wasn't in the cards.

7. I'm not sure. I guess going with known to work well with George Lucas and ability to bring Lucas' ideas to life better than Lucas himself could probably do it and past success with sci-fi and fantasy films, Steven Spielberg would be a good choice.

1. I have not read the Fett backstories. I didn't realize people were obsessed with him, but I for one fell in love with his sexy-scary costume in The Empire Strikes Back, lol. Plus he seemed like a badasss. ;)

3. Good points about Vader's effectiveness as a bad guy! :)

7. Oh, nice choice; I agree. I wonder if Peter Jackson would also do a good job. He seems to handle "epic" pretty well.

LOVE your new layout!! :D

And you recently finished Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell?? I ADORED THAT BOOK. Did you like it?
bratty_jedi at 1:46 pm on 27 April 2008 (UTC) (Link)
1. Yeah. I liked him when I first saw him because he was the mysterious, cool, bad ass. And he should have stayed that way. The more I know about him the less I like him.

LOVE your new layout!! :D

Thanks. :)

I think I really like the idea of the books over in the sidebar and may try to incorporate that into more layouts. It is fun. You can click any of the books and it'll take you to my GoodReads.com review (sometimes an actual review and sometimes just x out or 5 stars) of the book (if I've finished it).

I thought JS & Mr. N was just ok. I'd heard from several people that it takes a while to get going. That isn't exactly how I'd describe it. The story is going pretty much from the start, I just didn't find it to be all the interesting or involving of a story. I didn't mind reading it, but I didn't have any burning desire to get back to it and find out what would happen next whenever I'd have to put it down. The last 200 pages or so were really good. I did love them and couldn't put the book down while reading them. The last 200 or so just don't outweigh the first 500 or so to make me say I loved the book overall.

1. I haven't used one since elementary school so I don't really have an opinion on them.

2. Sadly, May 2002 when I went to Germany and Majorca.

3. CDs by actual preference MP3s more often of later. I listen to most of my music as MP3s on my laptop but I'd rather have the CD and rip it. CD linear notes often give more information on composers and the like that you don't get with MP3s. Plus, if my computer crashes I can rerip the MP3s if I have the CD. I buy MP3s more lately because they are usually cheaper and it is highly convenient to buy a song online as soon as I want it. I always burn the MP3s to CD though just in case the laptop dies.

4. Worked on the new LJ layout and finished Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell.

5. I'm not such a fan of chocolate bars so much. I love the cherry cordial and the caramel Hershey's Kisses though.

6. Some combination of books, movies, and music. I bought some good folk-rock and blues CD collections recently and a ton of Harrison Ford movies not too long ago so probably books would win at the moment.

7. Uh... The only person who has made me mad recently is a particular grad student at W&M (not in history). He is the biggest ass hole I've ever met, is beyond misogynistic to the point where it is dangerous for any female to be alone with him, and is generally just scum. He's the only contender I can think of.
