I lived through 80s music the first time around! Eeek!

I agree; I really dislike rudeness in people. There's really just no excuse for it.

Uh, I'm trying to hard to stop biting my nails. I bought that disgusting tasting stuff. So far I've been good for nearly 3 weeks. Which means I have about one zillionth nail length, but at least it's a start.

"Writer"... wow! No one's ever called me that before. Nor have I ever thought of myself that way. *blushes* I've never written anything (aside from homework assignments) before I started writing fanfic last October. I really love it! And I totally love you for calling me that! *hug*

01. Can you cook? Yes, I can. My baking is a lot better than my cooking, though. I've just had more practice at baking.
02. What was your dream growing up? To be a teacher. And get married. Oh, and be a published writer. A published playwright. And be famous. Heh.
03. What talent do you wish you had? Any really. I don't really have any truly marketable talents except reading quickly and picking up romance languages fairly easily.
04. Favorite place? Hot Dog Johnny's in Buttzville, New Jersey.
05. Favorite vegetable? Potato.
06. What was the last book you read? East of Eden by John Steinbeck.
07. What zodiac sign are you? Libra, the most boring sign ever.
08. Any tattoos or piercings? I have my ears pierced, but rarely wear earrings. I do have a few tattoos: a star, a crown, an anchor, two inverted hearts and the quote "Il dit non avec la tete / il dit oui avec le coeur" (which means "he says no with his head / he says yes with his heart").
09. Worst habit? Biting my nails. Possibly smoking, but I've been biting my nails for much longer.
10. Do we know each other outside of Livejournal? No.
11. What is your favorite sport? Synchronized swimming.
12. Do you have a negative or optimistic attitude? I'm inherently cynical, which I think can be both pessimistic and optimistic given the situation.
13. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me? Sing 80s pop songs (which I am famous for) or geek out about Stephen Fry.
14. Worst thing to ever happen to you? I don't know. Bad things that happen just make the good things that much better.
15. Tell me one weird fact about you. Uhm. I can gargle "Row, Row, Row Your Boat."
16. Do you have any pets? I have some cats. And my parents have some dogs. I am not claiming the dogs.
17. Do you know how to do the Macarena? I think I remember how to do it. It's been a while since I've done it.
18. What time is it where you are now? 12:15 AM EST.
19. Do you think clowns are cute or scary? Terrifying.
20. If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be? I'd be taller!
21. Would you be my partner in crime or my conscience? Depends on the situation. I've been known to be both!
22. What color eyes do you have? Green-y blue.
23. Ever been arrested? I sort of have. I've been given citations for underage drinking and when I was 12 or 13 I was "held" after I shoplifted some books.
24. Bottle or draft? I've never had a beer, so I don't know!
25. If you won $10,000 dollars today, what would you do with it? Travel!
26. What kind of bubble gum do you prefer to chew? Orbit, I suppose. I'm not a big gum chewer.
27. What's your favorite bar to hang at? The Tempest! 8th & 30th, New York, New York 10001!
28. Do you believe in ghosts? I don't know. Possibly?
29. Favorite thing to do in your spare time? Chillax. Or read. Or watch television.
30. Do you swear a lot? Quite a bit, yeah. I'm trying to cut down.
31. Biggest pet peeve? Oh man, there are so many. Most likely poor table manners. It really puts me off.
32. In one word, how would you describe yourself? Pecksniffian.
33. In one word, how would you describe me? Awesome.
34. Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you? Possibly!

Hot Dog Johnny's is an excellent name for a restaurant! :)

Yeah, I've got that biting my nails problem too. I go through spurts and for the past few years I've been chewing like an idiot. I quit smoking 4-1/2 years ago (had been a 2-pack-a-day woman for 20-some years before that), so I'm proud of that. I do miss it, though, I gotta tell ya! Every once in a while I just want one!

How long have you had your tats? How did your parents react when you got them?

In order of age: star, hearts, anchor, crown and the quote. I got my first one about six years ago. I've incorporated the star/crown/anchor into a sort of personal tableau. The star is a five-pointed "golden" star in reference to the philatelic symbol for stamps that haven't been postmarked. The crown is a heraldry symbol for authority. The anchor is tangled in a rope, which is in reference to the maritime stories about sailors tangling the weigh-anchor in heavy ropes at particularly beautiful ports so that they might stay a bit longer (implying they had found a place highly superior to all others). A beginning, an adolescence, emerging into adulthood.. and beyond. I can see myself building on it.

My parents.. gosh. They were really mad when I got the first one done since I was almost 15 at the time. I was stupid. I got it done in the summer and didn't think about it being bathing suit/tank top weather. But, they got over it. The "tableau" work they know about for sure, since it's on my back and I wear tank tops quite a bit. My dad doesn't know about the hearts. My stepmom only found out about them when she came to the hospital in Wyoming after my accident (hospital gowns aren't very forgiving). The quote was done in white ink so I don't even know if they know about that one. If they do, they haven't said.

My grandmother loved them though! Before she died I had just gotten the anchor finished and she told me that if she were my age she'd have tons of them. Hee!

A rockstar? Awesome! :) A solo act or as part of a band?

Oh, we'd have a wonderful time talking and fangirling over Stephen and Hugh and all their incarnations. Maybe we could even write a fic or two, eh? I'm sure we'd have no trouble whiling aways hours and hours!

LOL over your flute-playing story. My sons and I went to an Al Stewart concert a few years ago; there were definitely the youngest people in the place!

Hahahahahaha...I love that you're a Star Wars defender! Do you have a preference between earlier/later movies? I have to confess, I'm much more partial to the earlier ones myself. I took my sons to a midnight showing first night of release for one of the new ones a few years ago and -- I blush to admit -- got in quite a lovely nap for most of the picture. :)

Hehe, I think we'd have a LOT of fun in that elevator putting our wonderful heroes into all kinds of wonderfully odd and slashy situations!

I love your idea for a cat named Jeeves! I want to have two male cats so I can name them Bertie and Jeeves (not overly original) but I hadn't given any thought to coloring. One should be black and white as you say; the other could be a nice brown tabby since Bertie wears a lot of brown checks and tweeds.

My two kitties are both female. One is Ashes (gray) and the other is Socks (because when she's lonely, she fetches a sock from where ever she can and brings it to you in her mouth like a dog). I've no idea where Socks picked up that habit!

That is the cutest icon I've ever seen! Awww! Can't provide a Hugh sadly, but would take great delight in giving him a hug!

I think we certainly would have lots and lot of fun planning lots of odd and slashy situations for our chaps! I'm sure they'd come out of it feeling rather used and abused!

I would actually like two cats too so I can call them Bertie and Jeeves! My black and white one - Jeeves and a brown/black/white mixed one to call Bertie - well he does like his different colours! Perhaps not overly original but just the thing for mad fangirls! :-P

Your kitties sound adorable, esp Socks - bringing a sock to you! That is so so so cute! My friend Victoria has a huge fat cat called George, he is white with light brown patches and is just gorgeous! I want to take him home with me but I don't think he'd fit in my handbag!

When I was having a look through various pieces of Jooster artwork on the IndeedSir archive I came across a drawing of Jeeves relaxing in a chair with a copy of Spinoza and Aunt Dahlia's cat Augustus curled up in his lap - too too cute!
