1. Your Middle Name: Victoria (ugh)
2. Age: 36

7. Dirty or Clean: Clean body, dirty mind.
8. Tattoos and/or Piercings: Technically two sets of piercings in my ears, but the second set's all but closed, the first set mostly, thanks to not being able to wear earrings anymore after developing sensitivity to most metals years ago. Want tattoos, but haven't gotten any (highly likely I'd end up allergic to the inks >_< ).
9. Do we know each other outside of LJ? Nope
10. What's your philosophy on life? Do what makes you happy, don't ever let anyone tell you you're too old. (Though I've started to struggle with that second part the last couple years.)

14. What is your favorite guilty pleasure? food >_>
15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: The only place I'll ever sing at full volume is in my car when I'm driving alone.
16. You can have three wishes (for yourself, so forget all the 'world peace etc' malarky) - what are they? That I could sing, that I could make a career of publishing poetry, that my body shape matched my mental image of myself
17. Can we get together and make a cake? \:D/ hells yes
18. Which country is your spiritual home? England or Canada. If the US, Seattle.

28. Will you repost this so I can fill it out for you? Okay, this is how my brain works. ^^; "...if I post it, other people who did this meme will know I know about it, and wonder why i haven't filled theirs out. I won't post it. No, I will, but just not answer others'. No, I should answer others', too. Augh pressure! \o/ *stress*". No seriously. This is what my brain is like every day. >_< ;

1. I probably should have asked for first names. Or maybe not. Just knowing everyone by their screennames is SO much easier.
4. Office Space! Oh, that film made me laugh so hard it hurt. Have you seen 'The Hangover'? Similar energy, but with 3 guys waking up in Vegas after a bachelor party with NO IDEA what they've done with their friend the groom.
5. Man, that Cyril the Wolf song is like ... techno on speed.
8. Gold is about the only metal I can tolerate, and nobody makes any interesting pieces in gold. I've got a platinum-iridium wedding band that I got after watching 'The Abyss.' It's awesome! It's the strongest metal around! It could save my life someday by getting caught in a door! And contains stuff from Outer Space! *geeks out*
16. I'm 5'1, but for some reason I strut around convinced I'm GINORNMOUS.
18. Hey, I live in Seattle! I do like it here. Oddly enough, I'm a fan of the weather. Also the mountains and the water.
27. Disneyworld, eh? Not fond of crowds, but that culd be fun.
28. Yeah, I sometimes wonder about that stuff, too. With a side of, 'What would a normal person do in this situation?' Then I generally go, 'oh screw it' and just do what's easiest. But I'm glad you answered the questions here!

4. Princess Bride is AWESOME!
10. Very true. I think, with every action, we send positive or negative energy out into the world. I try to keep mine positive, whenever possible.
13. I liked listening you conversate every time I wandered out of the Dance Party. I'm not sure if it was copious amounts of alcohol, or just lots of enthusiasm, but man you were LIVELY!
27. Slingshot time travel?!? OK, that's the best idea I've heard yet!

Considering I don't drink, and I don't remember having a lot of sugar *that* night, I'd say it was enthusiam, mixed with not having to corral kidlets, mixed with sheer happiness at being surrounded by fangrrls!

1. Your Middle Name: Anne.

2. Age: 21

3. Single or Taken: Single, for now...

4. Favorite Movie: While You Were Sleeping.

5. Favorite Song or Album: Lately I've been listening to "If I Die Young" by The Band Perry so often it's scary.

6. Favorite Band/Artist: Brooks & Dunn. They're legendary and I'm so upset that they're not coming near me on their farewell tour.

7. Dirty or Clean: Clean!

8. Tattoos and/or Piercings: I got my ears pierced in like fifth grade.

9. Do we know each other outside of LJ? Nope.

10. What's your philosophy on life? I don't know if it's really a philosophy, but I try to avoid drama at all costs. Keep things as light as possible, and just have fun.

11. Is the bottle half-full or half-empty? Half-full. Let's be optimistic.

12. Would you keep a secret from me if you thought it was in my best interest? It'd have to be one hell of a secret. But I try not to keep things from people if I can help it.

13. What is your favorite memory of us? The "great thief" scavenger hunt. :)

14. What is your favorite guilty pleasure? ABC Family shows.

15. Tell me one odd/interesting fact about you: I like making candy. I love getting new chocolate molds. But it's terrible because if I make a lot of it, then I have to eat it and I'll end up weighing a million pounds.

16. You can have three wishes (for yourself, so forget all the 'world peace etc' malarky) - what are they? Hahaha, umm I'd probably wish for endless money. So I wouldn't have to work and I could do anything I want. I'd wish for a lot of time to spend with my family & friends. And I'd wish my dog could live as long as I will.

17. Can we get together and make a cake? Sure! I love baking. I should warn you that my friends and I baked a birthday cake once and it was crooked. And was missing a giant chunk that stuck to the pan, so we filled it with icing.

18. Which country is your spiritual home? The US. I've never been anywhere else, so it's hard to say.

19. What is your big weakness? I do not like confrontation. I tremble.

20. Do you think I'm a good person? Of course I do!

21. What was your best/favorite subject at school? Art. I took some kind of art class (or multiple classes) every year I was in school. By senior year I was taking so many art classes, one of the teachers asked me when I'd moved into the art wing.

22. Describe your accent: I don't think I have one. Most people in New Jersey do not have the "New Jersey Accent" that people outside Jersey think we all have.

23. If you could change anything about me, would you? Nope.

24. What do you wear to sleep? A t-shirt & shorts.

25. Trousers or skirts? Trousers, hehehehe. Skirts sometimes.

26. Cigarettes or alcohol? Never cigarettes. Alcohol occasionally.

27. If I only had one day to live, what would we do together? (If you have no idea, just say something crazy, it'll entertain me!) We'd go to Vancouver and sneak onto the set of Supernatural. Because meeting the cast and crew (and Kripke?) would probably be the best way to go out.

28. Will you repost this so I can fill it out for you? Already did. :) Thanks for filling it out!

10. avoid drama at all costs - *nods* That's me too.
15. Well I like EATING candy, so that would work out great. Although I have to say that my absolute favorite candy is Swedish Fish! I get cravings for them at the weirdest times.
27. I'm SO excited to see some of them at Vancon next month!

You're going to Vancon?! I'm so jealous. I've been hoping they'll come to NY Comic Con in October. Jared was there last time to promote his movie, but there was nothing for SPN.

Huh, weird, disappearing comments
4. 'The Sting'! I ahven't seen that in years! But honestly I think 'Bring It On' was more fun. I enjoy sports movies of every flavor, and I have a great time with fanfic sports AUs, too.
15. A few years back I went on a 2-month road trip. We got an annnual pass and saw LOTS of national parks. I'm all about the natural beauty - all the places I still want to go/see are about the volcanoes/hotsprings/redwoods/glaciers/great views!
27. You're so sweet!
