Survey!Time: I wrote this over a 4 month period *genius*

 Getting to know me, getting to know some about me, getting to like me, getting to hope I like you...

1. When was the last time you were told you were cute?
Since I have a vagina, I get told that every day; it doesn't matter if I am or I'm not: guys say it mostly as a device to lure you in. I've quit falling for it. 
2. When was the last time you were truly, completely happy with your life?
Spring/summer of 2008 was the best time of my life, until it wasn't. I was 19, had a slamming figure (21 inch waist with 42 inch bust), was making the best grades I ever did in college, and -- most especially -- I was in a very good place with my personal relationships. Family, friends, l'amour. All of it was wonderful. And my youngest sister Ellie and my first ever (and only) nephew Aiden were the best babies there ever was. My heart and life were so full of love, and I was so loved, it was like living in a dream of perfectness. But the thing about good dreams: someone always wakes you up from them.
3. When’s the next time you will see the person who absolutely takes your breath away?
I'm never letting anyone have that power over me again. I'm too old, too grumpy, and jaded enough to know that if someone wants you bad enough, you'll take THEIR breath away and they won't stop until you know it.
But in perfect!world, I would be capable of such a girlish sensation and I would have someone who made me that happy in my life. 
4. What are you most looking forward to tomorrow?
Being alive another day. That's supercool. 
5. What is your relationship status?
I'm going to give you a vote of confidence and assume this is obvious. 
6. Do you think you will be in a relationship two months from now?
My last relationship taught me that love isn't enough. And also that when guys get depressed, they assume they have fallen out of love -- in less than a week, because THAT'S possible -- and then leave you feeling like you've been gutted and left for dead in a lonely, rainy alleyway.
Two conditions would have to be met to ever induce me into being in a relationship again. #1) I would have to be really in love and really happy; now that I know what it feels like, I can't go back to less-than. #2) The potential partner would have to assure to me (and preferably prove to me) that they were committed to commitment. That they would talk to me if they have a problem instead of taking unilateral actions that rip my heart out, kill his soul, and make people think we're both fucking lunatics: him for what he did and me for caring that he did it. 
 So, no. I don't think I'll be in a relationship in two months time. 
7. Do you hate anyone at this present moment, if so how many?
I can actually say with all honesty I literally don't hate a single living soul. People like Hitler? I don't think they ever had a soul. People who antagonize me? I think they're so pathetic, I sometimes literally feel sorry for them. Yeah. I actually practice what I preach, suckers. I bet you didn't think I did, but I do. 
8. Would you like to punch anyone?
Definitely. Punching does not go against my moral code/philosophy of life, etc. Punching can actually be very good for the soul. 
9. What is your background on your phone?

I will always love Repo! The Genetic Opera. (And Blind Mag most especially.)
10. Are you a mean person?
No. I'm opinionated and let people know it. There's a difference. In truth, I rarely say things out of meanness and anger. I mainly say negative things as an expression of my disappointment in someone or something. 
11. Is there anything you want to get tattooed on you?
I used to want "amor vincint omnia" (the saying, NOT the painting). I don't jive with that philosophy anymore, though.
12. Would you consider yourself tall?
I consider me 5'5 1/2". The question is: do YOU consider me tall? Because height is all about perspective. My 21-year-old sister thinks I'm really short; my 4-year-old sister thinks I'm super tall.  
13. What’s your relationship with the person you last texted?
I haven't texted in over 24 hours (as my life resides outside of my phone). But it was my step-uncle. And the jerk never texted me back. (I have multiple step-uncles by all sorts of situations imaginable; this one is my step-uncle via his younger sister marrying my older father.)
14. Have you ever had someone pick you up off the ground and carry you?
I will assume we're talking about since I was six. And yes, surprisingly. 
15. This time last year, who did you like?
Myself. And the feeling was mutual.
16. Are you wearing any jewellery?
No. I have six piercings and I usually stupidly let them grow up and have to re-pierce. Myself. Manually. Without those fancy piercing guns, antiseptic, or any of that wimpy shit. (To quote Jerry Trainor, "I phone it in.")
17. Is it possible to be single and happy?
Certainly, temporarily. I mean, I know I am -- temporarily. But let's be honest: humans are social creatures and at the end of the day, no one wants to die alone. It's not pretty when they don't find you until you can be smelled from down the block. And that shit happens. It happened to someone's grandmother I know. 
18. Do you find piercings attractive?
Depends who the piercings are on, where they are at, and why the pierced one got pierced. There's nothing unsexier than doing it just because you thought it was "hardcore". I mean, that's about as unattractive as it gets. 
19. Ever been called names?
I was literally called the "dead lesbian" by several classmates. In person. To my face. They said they thought I was dead and it would've been better if I'd died. And as for the lesbian thing, middle schoolers call anyone gay whether they are or not. I'm not gay, but my good friend was; since she was, well, obviously I was too. Because that's obviously how it works.
20. What’s on your mind?
You, baby. Every night. Especially right now, because it's late and the lights are off. 
21. What’s on your bed right now?
Bed things...
22. Do you like your phone?
Fuck yeah. It calls AND texts. I don't need internet on it. Like, I'm not even being sarcastic. Phones are phones. You only need internet on them if, for some reason, you need portable internet and can't get a portable PC or tablet. But in most cases, no one should NEED internet on their phone. (I'm wise. Listen to me on this matter.)
23. What would you say if somebody told you they hated you?
"I guess that makes you one of those human beings I've been hearing so much about." 
24. Are you one of those people who hate crying in front of others?
I hate crying period. I once went 13 years without crying. (See above post about summer 2008.)
25. Would you date someone taller than you?
Seeing as how I'm not only female, but I'm only average height, that's mainly my only option. (And I actually prefer taller-than-me, believe it or not. Makes me feel all cute and dainty.) 
26.If you could see one person right now, who would it be?
Honestly, my dad: I miss him like crazy. Stupid local NASA not having jobs. *prods government*
And he's the only male adult blood relative I have. (Aside of cousins or grandfathers I don't know.) I get sick of being surrounded by nagging vaginas.
27. Where were you last night?
Where I was. 
28. What is today’s date?
October 28, 2011. See? I know shit. 
29. Who was the last person to call you baby/babe?
Aside of my parents? Probably my ex. Because I would only find it non-condescending in either of those contexts. If some random guy called me babe, I'd probably neuter him. 
30. When you’re at the grocery store do you use the self checkout?
This is Alabama. We don't have those. I didn't even know that shit existed til just now. But I mean, this is Alabama; if that shit DID exist here? People would just steal the groceries and lie and stuff them in their coats/purses, because folks is poor in this fascist Tea Party economy that will become the reality for every other state in America unless Democrats, Socialists, Moderate Republicans and everyone who's not a Tea Party lunatic gets out there and votes. Come on, guys. We don't have to agree with each other's individual politics; we just have to unite against our common enemy. 
31. Anyone crushing on you?
Probably. I'm saying that just because I'm a girl and guys are very much the way I said in #1. 
Here is where I left off and then started writing again four months later. Enjoy.  
32. Has anyone ever sang to you?
The first time I was ever sang to (or at, really) was by a car of Mexicans in the Target parking lot. My mom was all like, "SHE'S THIRTEEN YOU PERVERTS!!!!" They sped off *really* fast. 
33. Has anyone ever given you roses?
No. Not at all.
34. Who do you text the most?
My dad. This is the future, after all. 
35.How do you make your money?
I'm a professional writer. People pay me to write things. It's pretty freaking awesome.
36. First person to text today?
I haven't text'd anyone today. All these months later. 
37. What is your favourite color?
Purple. It is the color of gods and royalty. It is my color. 
38. What color are your eyes?
Green. Slightly greener than emerald green. My dad's are the color of the Grinch's. His mom's are practically the color of limes. These are the only other green-eyed people I know. But, we apparently get progressively deeper in hue. 
39. What is a compliment you receive often?
"You have such pretty eyes." "You should only wear red lipstick." "I like your jugs; can I see them?" (The answer to the last one is no. Unless you discover me at a nude beach, then it's whatever.) 
40. Who was the last person to say they loved you and when?
My mom. Yesterday. My mommy loves me, guys! Unlike most assholes, I'm actually proud of that fact. 
41. Do you like your parents?
I love my parents. Their DNA combined to make me. And I think I'm pretty awesome, so they're at least half-way awesome by default. (Just don't tell them I said that; I have to keep them on their toes.)
42. Do you secretly like someone?
I don't secretly like anyone.
43. Why did your last relationship end?
See my answer to question #6. 
44. Where is the furthest place you’ve traveled?
San Diego, California -- or la Jolla, California, or Los Angeles (whichever is technically farther). And it was wonderful. The air smelled so clean, even in the city. And the wind on the beach at night was so welcoming. And the waves weren't pissing about; they were strong, and cold, and wanted to knock you over like they were testing you to see if you could be one of them. It was amazing. Southern California will always have a place in my heart. One day, hopefully I can go back there, to see my Doublekin. <3
45. Which do you prefer, to eat or sleep?
Sleep. I have lupus. I need my sleep. But I don't really *love* it, ya know? I don't love to eat either. I only do both to sustain me. In fact, I think the reason the steroid weight has been so hard to come off is because sometimes I don't get the required 1200 calories to keep my metabolism working. (I'm doing better about that, though, and have proudly lost 13lbs this month!) 
46. Do you look more like your mum or your dad?
I literally look like an exact blend between them. My hair is a medium brown with both red and blonde highlights (Dad is a redhead, Mom is blonde). My nose is wide like Mom's and long like Dad's (that was unfortunate). I have the Cupid's bow of Dad's upper lip, but the fullness of Mom's lower lip. My eye's are wide and big like my mom's, but have little corners like my dad's. I have the disappearing eyelid of my Dad's Native American side; I have the small chin I got from my mom's family of "little Irish washer women". I look like both of them. And I'm proud of that. Even with my ridiculously huge nose, because only a nose like that could balance out my ridiculously huge lips and eyes. = >D
47. How long does it take you to shower?
I've gotten it down to 15 minutes. But I prefer long showers. 
48. Can you do splits?
Yes, I can. Take that, lupus.
49. Are you flexible?
It asks me this after the above? But yes. I am flexible. I'm also freakishly double-jointed. I scan twist my arm around almost three full times. 
50. Can you speak any other language than English?
With very degrees of fluency: canis est in via (Latin -- and I'm kidding; I know more Latin than any of them). I took French for two years. And I also wrote some papers on the evolution of old English to Middle English to modern English. So, it's safe to say I thoroughly speak English to the more than usual degree. 
51. How many hours of sleep did you get last night?
6 1/2.
52. Do you wear your seatbelt in the car?:
Always. Anyone who doesn't is asking to become a vegetable when the next drunk comes careening down the road. (And don't give me that smartass bullshit about liver lacerations -- it almost never happens. It's practically an urban myth. It mainly happens to people wearing the lap bands over their stomachs like they ain't got good sense.) 
53. Are you scared of flying?
Nope. I've flow on a plane before (see the above trip to various parts of California). I know how the whole thing works. Fear is only two things: ignorance or severe phobia. And I have neither one regarding planes. 
54. What do you sleep in?
Pajamas. What do you you sleep in?
55. Who was the last person you kissed?
I don't kiss and tell. Mainly because I don't kiss and know. (I kid, I kid.) 
56. Do you like funny people or serious people?
Funny people who can be serious when the times call for it. Those are my people. But funny > serious. You have to laugh at life, or else it'll eat your soul. 
57. What jewellery do you wear all the time?
None ALL the time. But I'm a big fan of jewelry. I probably wear necklaces most often. 
58. What do you have planned for tonight?
I'm gonna watch stuff. On TV. Maybe on the iPad or PC if it's Netflix. (My TV is from 2002 -- I can't beam Netflix to it.) 
59. Do you prefer myspace or socialsplash?
I don't even know what socialsplash is, so I'm going to let you infer my answer from that. 
60. Do you have a favourite item of clothing?
That gray marled dress I have, the one with the belt. It makes me feel so Pan Am
61. Do you like messages or comments better?
Depends the nature of the subject.
62. Last movie you saw in theaters?
I don't even remember. It's been that long.
63. Last thing you ate?
64. What was last thing you drank?
Coke. (Which I almost never drink! So yeah. Odd!)
65. Are you happy right now?
No. That's why you gotta see the humor in life. It bridges the gap between the sucky times. Keeps you sane. Or, as sane as a person can be. 
66. What were you doing at midnight last night?
Reading Weeds fanfiction. I'm not kidding.
67. Are you left handed?
I'm ambidextrous. I mainly write with my right hand, but I *can* write with my left. However, I can *only* use the mouse with my left hand. My write hand can barely work it at all. 
68. What was for dinner tonight?
I had a grilled cheese sandwich for dinner last night.
69. What is the last thing you thought about?
What I had for dinner last night. 
70. When is your birthday?
July 28th. (The awesome day, mentioned below.)
