I saw this on some guy’s blog, and decided to answer these questions while waiting to go stuff myself full of calorie-ridden dead animals (nom nom nom).
What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Never feeling bored.
What is your greatest fear?
Never-ending pain. I get reprieves from it right now, but I know that’s not going to last, and it scares the hell out of me.
What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
What is the trait you most deplore in others?
On what occasion do you lie?
I lie when telling the truth would cause unnecessary damage – but that doesn’t happen all that often. I’d rather withhold info than lie.
What is your greatest extravagance?
What is your current state of mind?
Honestly? I’m just exhausted, so it’s pretty muddled.
What is the quality you most like in a man?
What is the quality you most like in a woman?
Ability to talk about deep stuff one minute, then talk about stupid little things the next.
Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
I say, “Good times” to cover up silences, when people expect me to say something, but I have nothing else to say.
When and where were you happiest?
I get to make everyone puke now: The second I realized that I was married to J.B. It literally took me about 4 minutes AFTER our first dance for everything to sink in.
Who are your favorite writers?
Augusten Burroughs, David Sedaris, Wally Lamb, John Irving, Jen Lancaster, Laurie Notaro. I like memoirs, and I like reading books about people who’ve screwed something up, but make jokes about it.
Which talent would you most like to have?
I can sing, I can write lyrics, but I can’t write songs. I would LOVE to be able to write songs.
If you could change one thing about your family, what would it be?
They are who they are. *shrugs*
If you died and came back as a person or thing, what do you think it would be?
I would probably come back as a cystic ovary.
What do you dislike most about your appearance?
Insomnia, medication, and illness have caused me to look haggard and old.
Where would you like to live?
If it wasn’t so humid in the summer, I’d be fine with where I am right now.
What is your most treasured possession?
What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?
I don’t really have an answer to that, because it would require me giving info that I’m not comfortable sharing. Yeah, that type of info actually exists. Scary, huh?
What do you most value in your friends?
What are your favorite names?
I don’t really have any. Names represent people (or animals) to me, so the names themselves don’t have all that much significance.
What is it that you most dislike?
Again – willful ignorance.
What is your greatest regret?
Whenever I regret something, it usually has to do with spending a large amount of money on something that didn’t turn out the way I’d hoped.
How would you like to die?
Quickly, or in my sleep.
What is your motto?
