RANDOMS: Remember Myspace Surveys???

Do you all remember those obnoxiously long surveys we all used to pass around on Myspace? Well, I decided to do one here. It has absolutely nothing to do with writing, but whatevs. Here goes!


Have you ever thought about getting your lip pierced?
Many times. My fear of it hurting like hell stopped me. lol

Does a kiss make you feel better?

Have you ever passed out on the bathroom floor?
Yes, but because I was sick.

Do you start the water before you get in the shower or when you get in?
Before. It has to warm up. Diving into a cold shower is just silly.

What did you do today?
Worked the day job. Worked on the event coordination for a signing I am putting together in Manchester NH. Listened to this week’s Hollywood Babble-On.

Have you ever brushed your teeth while in the shower?
Yes, that used to be my normal routine.

Have you had more than 3 boyfriends/girlfriends at the same time?
No, I am a one-guy-at-a-time kind of chick.

Have you ever thought about your death?
Quite often. What comes next fascinates me.

Ever been in love?
Deeply and as often as possible.

Would you rather be in a permanent relationship or play the field?
Permanent relationship. I am a serial monogamist.

Hmm….that’s a toss-up between super-bike racing, rally racing, and Le Mans racing.

What color is your shower curtain?
Chocolate brown.

Have you ever had stitches?

Did you believe that boys/girls had cooties?
Never. I’ve been boy crazy my whole life.

Barely. I’ve only ever used them once and I managed to make it through the entire meal without flinging sushi at my face. I count that shit as a win.

Lyrics stuck in your head?

Do you like the Red Sox or Yankeess?
Neither. I fucking hate baseball. My ex-husband would spend every night of baseball season bouncing from one game to the next on tv. I think it’s the most boring game ever invented and cant understand why everyone loves it so much. Bleck!

What are you doing tomorrow?
Working. Again.

Who was the last person you couldn’t take your eyes off of?

Hmmm, that’s a tough question. It changes with my mood. At the moment, I’d have to say FMLYHM by Seether.

Are you more of a coffee or alcohol drinker?
Oh, coffee. COOOOFFFFFFFFFEEEEEEE. I don’t wake up until there’s a cup in my hand.

Are you a redneck?
Good gawd, no.

Have you ever gotten a mosquito bite on your face?
Yeah, about 3 nights ago, but it was on the side of my face. Does that count?

Have you ever been hurt?

Admit who hurt you:
I plead the 5th. I can do that, right?
