Nothing Interesting Is Happening In My Life. Thus, Another Pointless Meme.

Stolen from someplace on the internet...

1. When you look at yourself in the mirror, what's the first thing you look at?

I don't know. Possibly the hair, to see that if it's long enough that I need to think about getting it cut. Which I do. Or, lately, my left eye, as I paranoidly search for signs that the blow I took to it, although it feels quite healed, is concealing some deep, lurking damage that will lead to it rotting out of the socket or something.

2. How much cash do you have on you right now?

On my actual person, none. In my wallet, let's see... $0.99.

3. What's a word that rhymes with "TEST"?

"Best?"

4. Favourite plant?

Willow trees.

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?

Like I know. I never turn the damned thing on if I can help it, and I almost never look at it. Hmm. A friend of mine did say she tried to call me on it, weeks ago, and I never played her message back. Maybe I should see if she had anything interesting to say... ... Nope. She said exactly the same thing that she said when I called her about an hour later. And the only person on my "missed calls" list was my mother. Though there were about six thousand calls in my voicemail looking for someone named "Jessica."

6. What is your main ring tone on your phone?

It makes a ringing phone noise. I'd get a cute ringtone for it, but since I never turn it on, it hardly seems worth the effort.

7. What shirt are you wearing?

A light green t-shirt with the words "I hiked the Grand Canyon" on the front, and a rather murky picture of the Canyon itself. The back says "I'm lying!," though that itself is not really true, as I did hike at least part of the Canyon (though certainly not all of it), several years after I acquired the shirt. It's a very old shirt. Probably it's only lasted this long because I hardly ever wear it.

8. Do you "label" yourself?

I'll happily accept the label of "geek," but otherwise, no.

9. Name brand of your shoes currently wearing?

I'm not wearing shoes. I took them off as soon as I got home. My feet were hot.

10. Do you prefer a bright or dark room?

Um... Neither? Bright enough to read, dark enough not to go blind.

11. What did you have for breakfast?

Banana-flavored oatmeal and toast.

12. Since question 12 is weirdly missing, make some shit up.

Urga urble burble bloo.

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?

Sleeping. Sigh. I hate day shifts.

14. What did your last text message you received on your cell phone say?

I've never had one in my life. Even if I used the damned thing, a telephone is a crappy tool for sending text.

15. Do you ever click on "Pop Ups" or Banners?

Not if I can help it, though sometimes it's too easy to click on the thrice-damned things by accident. For some reason, my pop-up blocker never quite gets them all. (I'm talking ad pop-ups of course. Things like blog comments are a different matter...)

16. What's an expression that you say a lot?

"Actually..."

17. Who told you they loved you last?

Probably my mother.

18. Last furry thing you touched?

Vir the cat.

19. How many hours a week do you work?

41.

20. How many rolls of film do you need to get developed?

None. Not because I've gone digital like the rest of the world, but because I haven't taken any pictures of anything lately. (And how odd is this set of questions, with its obsession with cell phones and its bizarre assumption that people use film cameras?)

21. Favourite age you have been so far?

25 is good. I wanted to just stop at 25, but it didn't work.

22. Your worst enemy?

Entropy.

23. What is your current desk top picture?

This picture of unusually glowy post-sunset clouds over Sweden.

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?

Depends on how you define "someone." If animals count, it was, "Viiiirr!," because he was lying on top of my mouse while I was trying to write this and causing strange things to happen to my scrolling. If they don't but fictional people do, it was "Wouldn't you have his DNA?" to the FBI agents on Numb3rs. If only actual human beings count, it was something like, "Do we expect to have them?" spoken to my boss about some new equipment we'll need to have if we're going to do a certain project later in the year. (I basically got a "maybe.")

25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to go back in time and fix all your mistakes which would you choose?

I'll take the money. My mistakes haven't been that bad, and I've read more than enough science fiction to know better than to go mucking about with timelines.
