1) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
A. Yes! I have a girlfriend who I love very much.

2) What was your dream growing up?

3) What talent do you wish you had?
A. Oh, dude, anything math-related. Or craft-related. I can barely knit, and my girlfriend is just ... insanely talented when it comes to handicrafts. It's a little freakish.

4) If I bought you a drink what would it be?
A. A whiskey sour in the wintertime, a margarita on the rocks (with salt!) in the summer, and a gin sling basically ... whenever I feel like it. Oh my god deliciousness.

5) Favorite vegetable?
A. I love string beans. A lot. And corn. And sugar peas. And ... I like veggies. The only ones I won't eat are tomatoes ... because they'll kill me.

6) What was the last book you read?
A. How to Rig an Election. We were thinking about having its author on our show. Decided against it. Still a good book.

7) What zodiac sign are you?
A. Libra. I behave like one more often than not. Very bad at making decisions.

8) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where.
A. Just have one piercing in each of my ears, though as soon as I'm done with all my school work for this year (ONE MORE WEEK), I'm rewarding myself with an industrial. And as soon as I graduate from college, I'm getting a tattoo that I've planned on getting for ... going on five years. It'll be my reward to myself.

9) Worst Habit?
A. Procrastinating. Biting my fingernails. Chewing on pens.

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
A. If I had a car, sure!

11) What is your favorite sport?
A. To play? Soccer or softball. To watch, baseball. Or college basketball.

12) Do you have a Negative or Optimistic attitude?
A. I asked my girlfriend, and she said, "no, you're not an optimist," and I said, "am I a pessimist?" and she said, "I don't know. Is there something else?" So apparently ... I am neutral.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
A. Freak out. (Because of ... being stuck in the elevator, not because you were in there with me!)

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?
A. Whoa. Um. I guess that'd be last year, having appendicitis and a double root-canal within about two weeks of each other. During the end of the school year. And finals. It was really, really awful.

15) Tell me one weird fact about you.
A. Weird fact? Uh. I went to boarding school? And did a lot of stupid things there?

16) Do you have any pets?
A. My family does, but they don't live with me. Two cats.

17) What if i showed up at your house unexpectedly?
A. I'd ... be confused because my apartment is hard to get to?

18) What was your first impression of me?
A. That you were an AMAZING WRITER WHO HAD MADE MY CHRISTMAS.

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
A. TERRIFYING.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
A. My stupid, stupid Polish nose.
captain heteroknowledgeablenotpoetry on May 5th, 2008 04:03 am (UTC)
part two!

21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
A. Oh dude totally partner-in-crime.

22) What color eyes do you have?
A. Brown. Green. Hazel?

23) Ever been arrested?
A. I've been put in a holding cell! I wasn't booked. The holding cell is ... a long story.

24) Bottle or can soda?
A. Bottle! Doesn't go flat as quick.

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?
A. OKAY THIS IS KIND OF FUNNY. (I didn't ... exactly win 10K? It's a long story. ANYWAY.) Pay down my debt. Buy clothing that fits (don't lose a lot of weight when you're poor, you'll wind up wearing clothes two sizes too big for you for months). Pay my rent. Buy my girlfriend a present. Buy drinks for all my friends who've been buying me drinks for the past two years. And put the remainder in investments and savings so that I can continue to do all those things in the future.

27) What's your favorite place to hang at?
A. The couch of a very dear friend. Any dear friend. Or the bar across the street from my office. Awesome Irish bartender.

28) Do you believe in ghosts?
A. Y...sort of. Not really. Kind of?

29) Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
A. ...what spare time?

30) Do you swear a lot?
A. Yes. Not because I'm an angry and/or vulgar person, really, but because I think swear words add a certain rhythm to speech. Which is why certain characters in my scripts tend to swear more frequently than others.

31) Biggest pet peeve?
A. Passive-aggressiveness. Girls who talk in questions (like, hi? My name is Tory? And I live in New York? AAAAGH?!). When my boss changes his mind about his coffee order while I'm on a coffee run and then doesn't tell me until I come back with his first order and makes me go all the way back downstairs to get him a new drink. Fuckhead.

32) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
A. Ambitious.

33) Do you believe/appreciate romance?
A. So very, very much.

35) Do you believe in God?
A. Yeah. I was raised Catholic. Being indoctrinated doesn't leave you easily.

36) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?
A. You betcha.

Hey there! Heh, I had the same dream of being a doctor (mine was to be a brain surgeon) until I realized how very squeamish I am. :p

Wow, plain balsamic vinegar, huh? I love balsamic vinegar but I usually have it with olive oil on salad or as a dip for bread. Yummmm.

A parakeet in your office? How did that come about? That's pretty awesome.

Heh, I swear in my head much more than I do verbally or in writing, as well.

And, LOL at the thought of me as Bertie Wooster! :D Thank you for the compliment, m'dear.

Hey, you! Good to hear from you. :)

Mmm, I love peas.

Your tattoos sound lovely! I've thought about getting one, but I have no idea what I'd want or where to put it. Plus I'm a wimp about pain. :p Oooh, and your eyes sound beautiful also!

Clowns freak me out and dolls freak me out, so clown dolls would probably send me screaming from the room *shudder*

Reading and hanging at home are my faves too. :) Ooh, your fish sound cool! One of these days I'd like to have a pond in my backyard (you know, when I have a backyard) and have some fish in it.

Aww, hon, you're not dull! And a lot of my answers are the same as yours, wow - we've got a lot in common! (i.e. I also swear way more in my head than out loud, and I want to change my weight, and my eyes are somewhat color-changing, and the other ones I already mentioned.) :)

Hey you! :) Thanks for doing the meme! My answers can be seen above *points*.

Mmm, asparagus and brussels sprouts. I love both of those if they're done well (i.e. not overdone) but they're both so easy to ruin.

I'm amazed at how many people on my f-list are cuticle pickers. It's not something I've even really heard of before as a habit. I hope you manage to break it because it sounds painful!

Haha, I love your answer about your attitude (optimist v. pessimist). You're so contrary! :p

Oooh, tell me about your dog. I really, really want a dog. Can't have one in this apartment but as soon as I get a house, I'm getting a dog. Prolly a german shepherd or maybe a lab, from a local rescue group (yes, I've been researching this quite a lot. Part of my anal retentive nature :p).

I'm the same as you on the swearing - I rarely do it, so it really means something when I do.

Laconic's a good word. Interesting that you picked it for yourself, though - I wouldn't have guessed that one.

Aww, you're sweet about your impression of me. My first impression of you was that you were very nice (which you promptly told me "no I'm not" when I said that to you! :D) and very very generous with your time - you've helped me so much with iconing, and made me that hideously, hilariouisly awful icon for my badfic, and given me lovely comments on my fic, and hung out with me during our baking parties - I am really amazed & appreciative of your generosity!

Hey you! I love your icon - you look so beautiful in that dress. :) I've been following your Stephen-saga - hope to hear all about how it went soon!

Oh, I wish I could sing too. That's my number one wish. *sigh*

I didn't know about the suicide attempt. *hugs you* I'm so sorry you went through that. I hope things are better now.

Mmm, yes, Stephen's books are totally addictive, aren't they? My prize possession is an autographed copy of Moab that msliz4857 gave me. *snuggles it*

Cats are lovely. So are dogs. I love animals. :) Hope you can get some kitties soon!

Ooh, what would you make me for dinner? I take it asparagus would be on the menu? ;) I love asparagus too.

Oh, green eyes, lucky! Mine are brownish-green, changing depending on the light and what I'm wearing. They are getting greener as I get older, though, which is lovely. My mom's eyes did the same thing and hers are now entirely green.

Ha, you've been there when friends were arrested? That sounds like an interesting story!

Where would you go on holiday? I realy want to go to Alaska. And Europe (primarily the British aisles - I've only ever been to London). And eastern Canada.

Aww, thank you for the compliment about my writing. *blushes*

Um, I'm a dumbass. So, I think, because I asked you to screen... I can't reply to your responses. Oops.

So, I guess... unscreen? Who cares, I guess.

(BTW, the word "fic" no longer irritates me! I use it now! I used to use it, too! I just had this stretch where it hurt me for some reason. But now I'm good with it again! So, you're not irritating me! It's okay! I always have something in fandom that I randomly get cranky about.)

Haha! Okay, unscreened. Well, it was an interesting experiment anyway. I will read your pilot soon, I swear. Plus you owe me commentage too, you know! ;)
