Getting to Know Me - Tag (Thanks to Hunger for Knowledge)

1. Are you named after anyone?


Nope.  But when I read the Icelandic Sagas, I decided that I wanted to be named after Thorfinn Hairy Breeches.  But I'm a girl, so there is a problem.


2. When was the last time you cried?

Today, if you count the odd tear.  Saw an art installation that had that Russian dog that was sent into space and died.  Bastards.


3. Do you have kids?

Define kids.  Because if you mean baby goats, I don't have any real ones.  If you mean children, nope.  Though sometimes I feel as if I am the only adult at home.


4. If you were another person would you be a friend of yourself?

I guess.  I hate those types of questions.  So my real answer is adnadljadkfjal.


5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?

Qui, moi?  I don't use anything in a lot.  A lot is  a dirty place where I come from.


6. Will you ever bungee jump?

You mean jump off of a perfectly good bridge?  Seriously?


7. What is your favorite cereal? 

Tie between Peanut Butter Puffins and Vanilla Island Kashi.


8. What is the first thing you notice about people?

Whether or not they are reading something.


9. What is your eye color?

Brown with green flecks, according to people


10. Scary movie or happy ending?

Oh, I don't know.  I find most people in scary movies to be stupid so I want them to die to help the species.  But a too sugary happy ending makes my teeth hurt.  Give me Sandra Bullock or Melissa McCarthy.


11. Favorite Smells?

Coffee, roses, and Korean spice tree


12. Summer or winter?

Winter, which is funny because my birthday is in August.


13. Computer or Tv?

TV, it's easier to multi-task too.  Can't really clean and watch the computer.


14. What's the furthest you've been from home?

Europe.  Been far North in Norway and Sweden.  Really far north. 


Unless you count Discworld.


15. Where you were born.

Philadelphia.  You know that city between NYC and Washington, DC that everyone forgets about.  That's fine.  We like it that way, thank you.


16. Do you have any special talents?

I can read French pretty well.  I can't say hospital.  Just can't.  Apparently, if I need to grab hold of someone's tongue, I have a very good grip.  I can actually cook.  Apparently I make nervous cats less nervous.


17. What are your hobbies?

Besides reading?  I have a large collection of model horses.  I like playing stupid games on my Ipod.  I go though Magic playing binges.  Going to museums.  Watching weird television series.

Writing.  Making people think my gay friend is really my husband by the way I argue with him.


18. Do you have any pets?

Yes.  Two dogs, 3 cats.


19. Favorite movie?

Um, I love LOTR, Richard III (with McKellan), various others.  Long live David Bowie's hair!


20. Do you have any siblings?

Only on days when I consider my brother a human being.


21 What do you want to be when you grow up?

A dragon or  an unicorn, or a dragon/unicorn.  Or the possessor of Hermoine Granger's purse that holds everything.
