Teh gankage continues

Ganked from BethE, who ganked it from Zillah, who ganked it from elsewhere.

1) When you look in the mirror, what's the first thing you look at?
I'm not sure I actually focus in on any one thing in the first 5 seconds. I think I take a wholistic peek and then begin focusing in on the imperfections cropping up on my face with age.

2) How much cash do you have on you right now?
About $17

3) What's a word that rhymes with NEST?
Behest. Leave it to me to come up with something archaic.

4) Favorite plant?
I have a fondness for hydrangea bushes. There is something nostalgic and antebellum about hydrangeas. They're like a maiden aunt that is living alone in a crumbling mansion who still tries to keep up a good appearance.

5) Who is the fourth person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
Damn, my cell phone is out in the car, but it's most likely either Anonymous City Girl or Littlelethrgrl.

6) What is the main ring tone on your phone?
Ring. For some reason, I've never been able to cotton to the fancy ringtones or songs. I like my phone to sound like a phone.

7) What shirt are you wearing?
Black linen top

8) Do you "label" yourself?
Usually "geek" or "dork"

9) Name brand of shoes you are currently wearing.
Bandolino faux snakeskin slingbacks

10) Do you prefer a bright room or a dark room?
Medium to dark, except when I sleep, in which case it either needs to be pitch black or I need to wear eyeshades.

11) What did you have for breakfast?
A Slimfast low carb bar, a coconut iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts with Splenda, a Diet Mtn. Dew which I will nurse until lunchtime, and a Weight Watchers ham/egg/cheese egga-muffin.

12) Since question 12 is missing, make some shit up.
I am the girl that everyone says is attractive, but I have never believed it. I probably never will.

13) What were you doing at midnight last night.
Sleeping.

14) What did the last text message you received on your cell phone say?
OK, I had to actually go out to my car to get my cell phone. Apparently the last one was from Anonymous City Girl who textually declared "I'm in hell."

15) Do you ever click on pop-ups or banners?
No, and I believe them to be one of the Seven Plagues.

16) What's an expression you say a lot?
Usually some variant of "fuck" or occasionally "this will end in tears."

17) Who told you they love you last?
BethE! I love you too, ya nubby-fingered girl!

18) Last furry thing you touched?
Satyr's cat named Babycat (AKA One-ear or Babycat #1)

19) How many hours a week do you work?
I diligently try to keep it to 40 hours max. It is the duty of the employer to extract as much work from employees with as little pay as possible and it is the duty of the employee to extract as much money from the employer for as little work as possible.

20) How many rolls of film do you need to get developed?
I think I have at least one roll and one disposable camera lying around. I really need to get a digital camera.

21) Favorite age you have been so far?
I remember 25 being a pretty good year. 33-34 was good too. This last year has been pretty groovy as well.

22) Your worst enemy?
Whatever ultra-Right chucklehead is attacking Roe v. Wade at the moment. Also, those fucknut pharmacists who are declining contraception drugs to women. I hope all of them burn in some semblance of Hell for being incompassionate, judgmental assholes.

23) What is your current desktop picture?
None. I used to have a copy of a photo from Engrish.com that said "Stick to Coffee and Alcohol," but I lost it.

24) What was the last thing you said to someone?
"What did you do?" This is usually directed at my coworker, who is invariably up to something and breaking it about a third of the time.

25) If you had to choose between a million bucks and the chance to be able to go back in time and fix all your mistakes, which would you choose?
The money, unquestionably. Much easier than delving into some retroactive, temporal bandaging.

    Ha. "This will end in tears." On a good day, you can follow that one up with "Tragedy averted" and put the tissues away.
