20 Questions Meme
Here's the deal: People who have been tagged post their answers and replace any question they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves. Tag 8 people. Those who are tagged cannot refuse. These 8 people must state who they were tagged by. You cannot tag the person who tagged you. (Please, anyone I tag can totally not answer these questions. Go right ahead.)
1. You've just died. What happens?
I don’t ever really think about this. I don’t want to think about this. Look, if I’m dead, just don’t sell my body to science and so long as I die of natural causes, I’d really not like an autopsy done. As the mummification process will not guarantee that I come back with amazing powers as a cursed mummy, I don’t want to be restored as a living head if I’m cryogenically frozen, and I am kind of creeped out by the burial process thanks to Six Feet Under, I don’t really know what the hell I’d want.
Cremation would suck if they figure out a way to clone people. Yes, I do think about cloning, okay?
I do want a gravestone, though. And it will say “Dean Is a Top” for a very important reason.
2. What is your most guilty pleasure?
Doritos Cool Ranch chips. Because they actually can make me really sick and yet, I love them so.
There are certain bad movies that I will watch, regardless of when it started and whether or not I even like the movie. How bad? Molly Ringwald’s For Keeps? bad. I think I rewatch a movie like that hoping that this time, the dimwitted lead characters won’t reunite. I don’t know, man. It’s just something I like to do. Any bad movie out of the ‘80s I will watch without caring at how awful and trite it is..
3. Favorite childhood cartoon?
This is a horrible question. How am I to choose? How I am expected to remember? So many cartoons, so little time. Ack, I can’t pick. I watched She-Ra to Jem, Thundercats to G.I. Joe, Looney Toons to Ren and Stimpy.
Um! I got an answer. The Simpsons. Because that cartoon came into life around the same time that I was able to really process a lot of the in-jokes and for serious, my high school yearbook is 85% Simpsons quotes.
4. What goes on your hotdog?
Mustard (and please, none of that fucking yellow nonsense, if it’s not Gulden’s, then I’ll do with the generic stone ground kind that calls itself "deli mustard") and sauerkraut (more the better). This is the one food that I crave when I’m drunk AND it is a often a quick meal when I’m in Penn Station on the way to getting drunk. If I’m making it at home, I skip the bun all together.
5. What was the last movie you saw, for pleasure, and would you recommend it?
Juno! I’m really giddy over how excellent Michael Cera was in it. Mostly because I really want him to have a fabulous career. But the movie itself was really good and as weird as it sounds, it was a great movie to see with my 20 year old sister.
6. On balance, are you happy with your life as it is, would you change it a little or change it a lot?
I am currently in the process of making a few major changes. So yeah, I need some alterations to Make It Work. Hopefully, I will be much happier by the end of April.
7. What's the one possession you USED TO have, but don't anymore and wish you did? What happened to it?
I’m really hard on whatever I own, I’m a stone-cold shoe killer at best, for example. I used to have and always wear a really pretty star-and-moon ring that my uncle gave me. It was plain silver and adjustable as it was open between the star and the moon. I take off my rings when I go to the gym and leave them in my wallet. The next day, I forget to take them out, so I was putting my rings on in the car and oops, my ring slipped out of my hand and fell in my car. I tore apart my car looking for that damn ring but no, it’s gone.
I did replace it with a similar ring, a black-and-silver star-and-moon because I’ve always made it a point to wear a star-and-moon ring. But I still miss the original one I had a lot.
8. You (as you are now, not a fictionalised you) are a FC in an episode of SPN. What's your role?
The drunk girl who stumbles into Dean when they’re heading into a bar. I’m likely to be carried out by a friend. I… am not so good with imagining myself as an actual fictional character.
9. Name one person for whom you'd definitely take a bullet, and one for whom you definitely wouldn't.
I would definitely take a bullet for my little sister. I would never take a bullet for Bill O’Reilly because he is a repellent human being.
10. Worst case scenario?
Oh, it can always get worse.
11. What do you consider your greatest accomplishment?
I’m not particularly accomplished. It’s a bad thing but um, I make it a point not to strive to be the best of the best. It could be my crippling lack of self-esteem or that I’m quite comfortable resting on my laurels (so…springy), but I don’t have anything at this time that I would say is my Greatest Accomplishment. Most of the stuff I accomplish professionally are never credited to me. Like, I’m kind of published except where I’m not noted as being the one to draft, edit, and finalize the copy. So. That’s how it is.
12. What's your greatest frustration?
13. For you only, not as a broad political statement: life imprisonment or death sentence?
What the hell did I do? If I killed someone without cause, brutally and viciously and yeah, I would deserve the death penalty. Normally with a cake or death question, I answer cake, but like, I have no idea what I did here. I would like some cake though.
14. Jury duty. Ever done it? What was it like? Wanna do it? Thoughts at all?
I’ve only done Juror Standby. I called at night for a week and was never called to court. I really don’t want to do it. That would mean I’d lose out on at least a day of pay which would kill me, financially.
15. You discover you've been drafted into military service (to a country to which you hold a citizenship). What do you do?
As I doubt my country would like me objecting to going to war, if I couldn’t get out of service, I’d finally work up the courage to move to Spain. I’m not kidding.
16. Which fictional character could you most see yourself marrying?
I raise my eyebrow at this question. All my TV boyfriends are kind of crazy, you guys.
I could never marry John Crichton as he is that gay for Aeryn Sun, and really, I don’t want to be the rebound wife. And I won’t marry Dean Winchester because I don’t want to spend the rest of my life CONSTANTLY pregnant with his babies (which is kind of sad because you guys, my family makes really adorable babies, for some reason me and my sisters looked like baby models, true fact). So no marrying Dean, DESPITE the fact that our amazingly hot children would be able to take over the world.
I would possibly marry Bobby though. Huh. I dunno. I never thought I'd get married young so I figure if I would marry, I'd marry someone middle-age and we could read the many books in our library together.
17. Describe the flag design of your personal utopia.
You’d think it was plain black but in the night it would have glowing STARS on it. It will be fierce.
18. Do you have a motto? If yes which one?
No, I do not have a motto. I can’t even be assed to make up one. My fannish one might be “oral is moral” but I’m not that serious about it.
19. What's in your pocket right now? Conversely, if you have no pocket, what are the three items closest to your right hand, excluding computer hardware?
As I am typing this at work, the closest items are my Mead notebook, Pilot Uni-ball pen, and a bottle of Poland Spring water, to the far right on the other desk. Ah, tasty water, you are the only thing I’m allowed to drink when I’m at work.
20. What place most speaks to you?
Manhattan, right in the deep heart of it. Runners up are the old parts of Sevilla and Madrid. I like city life more than any kind of country life. But I can’t be far away from the water even though I loathe the beach.
I tag ignited, raelala, vorpal_pen, elrina753, booboosheep, theredwepainted, nariya, and alleynyc.
Rants to come later.
