I'm killing time until my BOY GETS BACK IN TOWN--EEEP!!!--and although I hate doing surveys (they bore the crap out of me), this one managed to not only peak my interest but it also got me to voluntarily do one of these things, which may be a first.


1. What is the geekiest part of your music collection: Probably the first CD I ever owned, which was Hootie & The Blowfish. Thankfully my music taste got better after that, but I guess it had nowhere to go but up. ^_^;;

2. What do you eat when you raid the fridge at night: I really don't raid my fridge that much, since there's not much to raid, and food just doesn't do it for me, but when I do have a raid, I go for bread. Lots and lots of bread. That or maraschino cherries. Or booze, although I guess technically one doesn't eat booze.

3. How much money would it take to give up the Internet for one year: What a stupid question. I don't even LIKE money, and giving up the internet would be like giving up shitting--not gonna happen.

4. What is your secret guaranteed weeping movie: Shadowlands. The first and last time I saw that movie, I cried so hard my heart started to FREAK OUT and I had to leave the room. Holy shit.

5. Do you have a completely irrational fear: Not really. My fears are all rational. ^_^

6. What is a physical habit that gives away your insecure moments: I blush like a fiend, which I hate. I also have a nervous tick in my neck, of all places, that goes wild when I'm anxious.

7. Do you know anyone famous: As in personally? Hmm....I don't hold much stock in fame, so although I know I have met famous people, they're just people to me, so I can't remember who any of them are.

8. Describe your bed: Almost square. It graduated at the bottom of its class.

9. Do you know how to play poker: Yes, and I always win when I play, but I hate gambling, so I never play it unless I have to.

10. What do you carry with you at all times: My devilish good looks. Just kidding. I meant my sense of humor.

11. What do you miss most about being little: Not much, although getting to eat entire pizzas by myself was nice.

12. Are you happy with your given name: I've had this weird love-hate relationship with it for many years, but I'm coming to terms with it. (I mean, I was named after a character in "Eight Is Enough." Sigh.) I hated it when I was little because it wasn't a "girl's name." I was surrounded by Katherines and Jennifers (no offense, Jen!) and Elizabeths, and I was an Abigail. One of those Biblical names that just didn't get really popular when I was a kid, although apparently it's really popular now. I've also hated how cute "Abby" is. It's a cute name, and I just don't think of myself as being cute. Although children seem to like it a lot. Which is nice. ^_^ I guess it's fun to say when you're little. I don't think the name suits me or my personality--although Abigail comes close at times--but I really don't know what would suit me more. I really see myself as being nameless, because I am me. Nothing more.

13. What color is your bedroom: Gray carpet, gray walls, gray everything. My old bedroom back home, however, had lavender walls, forest green and lavender "window treatment" (as my mom calls it), white see-thru curtains, all dark-wood furniture. I picked the colors and they were fabulous. I miss my old room....

14. Do you consider yourself to be a nice person: Generally, yes, unless I hate someone and then I can be a holy terror.

15. Do you spend more time with your girlfriend/boyfriend or your friends: Hahahaha. I wish. He lives a bijillion miles away, so I never get to see him. (Although I'll get to see him in a few hours because he's home for Golden Week!!! Eep!!!)

16. What's one thing you wish you could do but can't: Fly.

17. What is your ideal marriage location: Japan, because brides here get to wear funky hats.

Okay, okay, I'll be serious. I don't really have an ideal marriage location. I don't think the place matters so much as the people do.

18. What's one instrument you wish you could play: meaning, "If the instrument were available" or "If I had the mad skillz"? There's a difference. If the former, then Japanese drums, of course. If the latter, then probably cello. It's just so cool-looking, and I have a soft spot for bass clef instruments....

19. Something you love and hate: beer. I am insanely in love with beer, but it kicks my ass whenever we go out.

20. What's one language you want to learn: Maori

21. What do you order at a bar: Depends on my mood. If I'm feeling like I can take the extra calories, I go with a good beer. You can never go wrong with Japanese beer. ^_^ If I'm looking to get trashed but not tarded, I get my old favorite: a salty dog.

22. Have you ever pierced your body parts: Was I the one who held the gun? No. Did I get some else to? Yes. Two holes in each earlobe, although I'm really wanting thirds....

23. Do you drive stick: No, but I NEED to learn. Then I will finally be as bad-ass as my dad.

24. What's one trait you hate in a person: Prejudice.

25. What kind of watch do you wear: My dad's secretary (I know this sounds weird, but if you knew her, you'd understand) got me a lovely silver Fossil watch for college graduation. The watch face has this fabulous iridescent blue-purple-green shine to it that's mesmerizing.

26. Do you consider yourself materialistic: Not really, no. There are materials I like to have (like paper and pens, computer stuff, toiletries), but I don't ever want things just for the sake of having them.

27. Favorite writing instrument: Any decent black gel-ink pen with consistent ink output. That and my Pentel 0.4 GraphGear500 PG514 mechanical pencil. Although I am partial to my 0.3 of the same brand.

28. Do you prefer to blend in or stand out: Depends on the situation. Out in public in Japan, for example, I wish to heaven that I could blend in. I hate the pointing and the staring and the general weirdness that Japanese people seem to suffer from when confronted with a whitie such as myself. But in a group of friends, I certainly wouldn't want to be a wallflower. You're with your friends, for crying out loud.

29. Do you ever go out dressed like the opposite sex: Do I? As in on a regular basis? No. Have I? Of course. ^_~

30. What is one car you will never buy: One on see-ment blocks.

31. If you won the lottery, what would you do: Probably suffer from a series of mixed emotions. I'd be excited about winning it, but I'd hate the cheap fame, always getting hit up for money, suddenly having lots of desperate friends and jealous enemies.

32. Burial or cremation: I haven't decided yet. I think burial is good because it allows the people left behind to say goodbye. On the other hand, I think that cremation is more earth-friendly (especially because in countries like Japan, they're sort of running out of space).

33. If you don't like a person, how do you show it: I give really terse answers and I try to get away as quickly as possible. But that's only if I REALLY hate you and you've managed to piss me off. Otherwise, you probably don't know.

34. What kind of first impression do you think you give people: I have no idea. I always think I'm making a total ass of myself, but nobody else seems to think so. Could have fooled me, though....

35. How many drinks before you're tipsy: Just tipsy? Hmmm....it depends on what I'm drinking and how fast I drink it. If I want to get good and tipsy, drinking three salty dogs within 15-20 minutes should do it.

36. Have you ever done any illegal drugs: Illegal in this country? No. ^_~

37. Do you think you're cute: Hell, no. Big noses aren't cute. Cute means "tiny," and the only thing tiny about me is my boobs. Okay, that and my ears. My ears are freakishly cute.

38. Do you have a problem changing clothes in front of your friends: Not at all. I've gotten used to the whole "being naked in public with your friends and sitting around shootin' the shit wearing nothing but your birthday suits" thing that they do at the public baths here. The first time you do it, it's kinda freaky, but after that, it's all good. I now have no qualms about getting naked, and the thought that I ever was squeamish about it seems silly to me now.

39. What's the most painful experience you've ever had (emotionally and/or physically): Heart surgery was pretty painful (the post-op, anyway). And smashing my thumb in the middle of my first taiko performance was so painful I couldn't see for a while. I decimated the nerves on the outside of the bone, I hit it so hard. And it doubled in size by the end of the song I was playing when I hit it. The most painful emotional experience I've ever had? If you know me, you probably know a bit about what it was; if you don't, it's none of your business, although I'd be happy to tell you about it in person.

40. Favorite communication method: Email. Or talking in person.

4: Yeah, we were all blubbery and snot-faced and unhappy and I remember Dad coming home and asking, "What's the deal?" ^_^ I have no idea why she wanted us to watch that movie so badly. It gave me a freaking heart attack.

22: The second hole in my left ear is off, so I'll get that one re-pierced and then I'll go for thirds. Mom made a NASTY comment when she saw the seconds, but, whatever. I know she'll say something horrible if I get thirds, but it's not like I'm just running out and getting every part of my body pierced that isn't an internal organ. And I think about it for a long time between piercings. It took me nearly 10 years before I got my firsts re-done, and it was another couple of years before I got my seconds. I know what you mean, though, about it being addictive. I have no interest in doing any cartilage, but I have been thinking about my belly button....
