Here they are folks. The answers to those all-important questions you asked last week.
I’m putting them after the jump, since there’s a whole lotta content here:
First, from Java:
LOL – O gawdâ€¦..Canâ€™t reesistâ€¦. askingâ€¦.. totally inappropriate questionâ€¦.Resistâ€¦. Yesâ€¦. mustt *gggraahhhh* re-sssist. â€œHow do you wear it??â€ *sigh*â€¦ kind of resistedâ€¦ not quiteâ€¦ it .. meaning â€¦. Her! – lol (Erase at will)
Actually, I’ve been cultivating a veritable topiary down there for the past few years. For everyday wear I braid it and twist it into a wee bun so it’s out of the way. But for special occasions I’ll create a “flock of seagulls” style, complete with crazy off-centre part and bangs. I wear a skirt on those days so I don’t mess up the ‘do too badly. So, if you see me in a skirt or dress from now on, you know what’s going on!
Next, from Nicola:
how do you wear it??? how do you stand being smarter than your average bear? is there enough stimulation in your world? are you happy? do you admire or scorn drunk comments on a wednesday? and last but not at all least, do you believe in liars? magic?
See above. It takes a lot of patience. Only on Tuesdays. Today yes, tomorrow I hope so. Admire on Wednesdays, loathe on Sundays. Always. Always.
A short one from Mel:
What would you do if you won a million dollars?
I’d pay off my parents’ house for them, put a down payment on one of my own, buy a new car, and invest whatever was left. Nothing terribly fancy – though a cool Mil doesn’t actually buy that much in this city!
A thinker from April:
Who are three people, living or dead, that have had a profound impact on you life and why?
1. My Mom. Our parents shape so much of who we are, and I realize more and more how her influence has affected me, and helped me become the person we all know and love today.
2. Kurt Cobain. The era, the music, the angst, the plaid. Need I say more?
3. Fergie. (The pea, not the dutchess.) If someone can find gainful employment and satisfaction as a professional rump shaker, there’s hope for all of us!
And now, a few words from ‘nee:
-â€¦ wear what? I donâ€™t get it!
-Liberal, NDP, Conservative or Green?
-What did you think your life was going to be like at 15? 25? Did it happen? Are you disappointed or happy about that?
-Favourite shameful reading material?
-Again, see above
-None – the Party Party
-At 15 I figured I’d be living in an episode of Saved by the Bell. I was not. I am still bitter I didn’t have my Zach Morris. At 25 I figured I’d be living downtown with a fiancee and a stable job working for the man and the weekend – it hasn’t happened, and I couldn’t be happier!
-Danielle Steel books. So brainless, yet kinda fun and indulgent.
Netchick wants to know:
-Is there a moment in your life, that you can think back to, that everything changed for you?
-Whatâ€™s your favourite vacation spot? (ps: did you book a trip, yet?)
-The past year has been one of huge change. I’ve really grown more comfortable in my own skin than I’ve ever been before, and have realized that no matter how neurotic and Type A I might be, life doesn’t have a timeline, and it’s ok to just sit back and enjoy the now.
-So far, my favourite spot is Kokanee Creek campground in the Kootenays. I love camping, and this spot is pristine, on Kootenay Lake with trees and sandy beaches and NO TECHNOLOGY. After I get over the lack of ability to make a phone call or check my email, it forces me to relax and just “be.” I haven’t booked a trip yet – I’ll probably do it last minute, and so far my goal is to end up somewhere sunny and hot where a scantily clad cabana boy will deliver drinks with umbrellas in them all day.
-j needs to know:
What makes you happiest?
Prozzac. A close second is Ativan.
-Is there any conversation that you truly regret, and how would you change it?
-Whatâ€™s the most embarrassed youâ€™ve ever been?
-Name something you would only do for a minimum of $250,000 dollars, and then name something you wouldnâ€™t do even for $250,000.
-In the early days of this blog, I went overboard with flaming someone. It was an assy thing to do, and ruined a friendship, and while it was a lesson I obviously needed to learn, I do wish it didn’t have to be that way.
-I don’t embarrass easily. Though, like any adolescent, ANYTHING my parents did when I was 14 I found totally and utterly mortifying, so that whole age was a series of totally unjustified but completely encompassing embarrassments.
-Suck dick for cash. Suck Dick Cheney’s dick for cash.
And last but never least, Sue:
Fuck all this philosophical bullshit.. whatâ€™s your favorite drink!?!?!
