Trying to Maintian Normalcy

I still feel shitty. I'm trying not to think about it. That's the reason I went to work today. You can't be shitty when other people are around. Plus, they kinda frown upon drinking at work.

Random questions, incoherent answers

1. How do you define your nationality/heritage (e.g. English, British, American, Southern, British Asian or whatever otherword/phrase suits)?

I'm black. That's all I can tell you. I know that I'm part American Indian and I've been told that I have that part in me because back in history a Native American had one of my great great grandmothers as a concubine/slave. I don't know how true that is, but that's all I know.

2. If you were being sent to a desert island and could choose between an unlimited supply of books and an unlimited supply of writing materials, which would you take with you, and why?

Definately writing material. I didn't realize how much I enjoy writing until I started consistently writing my blog. I never claim to be a good writer or a prolific writer, but I do like the art of storytelling.

3. Would you rather lose your hearing or your sight?

I have an Aunt who's blind. She gets around ok. I don't think I'd mind being blind. Besides, I have pretty stellar hearing.

4. What is the earliest major news event you can remember?

I think the earliest major event I rememebr was the explosion/crash of the Discovery. I remember Daddy Kiki was really interested in that mission because I believe there was a black guy on board as well as a regular person, a school teacher. Daddy Kiki has always been interested in space and he thought it was cool that regular people were going into space. I guess that gave him hope that one day he could go.

5. Do you have any phobias?

I do now. Number one I'm afraid of God. But in the good Jewish/Catholic way. I'm afraid of His Wrath and Vengence. Number two fear...alcohol poisioning!

6. Which five people (living, dead, real, imaginary) would you invite to a dinner party?

Daddy Kiki (becuase, why wouldn't I?)
Kipper (I feel he could make everyone laugh)
Jesus (I feel he'd be a wonderful dinner guest)
Some really old person...I really like old people and their stories
I don't have a 5th guest. I really don't have that many friends.

7. If you had to place yourself on the political spectrum interms of centre/extreme left/right, with appropriate modifiers and a get-out clause for anarchists, what would you say?

I'm a moderate left leaner. For the most part I'm all left, but there are a couple things I tend to be conservative about.

8. What's the best place you've ever visited?

So far Yellowstone with Daddy Kiki. We drove from Denver to Yellowstone. I can't remember the number of times I said ohhh and ahh as we passed mountains, deserts, plateaus, wild animals, waterfalls....it was nature at its best.

9. What was the moment in your life when you were most nervous (that ended up having a good outcome)?

I never tend to be nervous. I believe nervousness is like fear. One of those things other people can pick up and see as a weakness. And I don't like to appear weak.

10. What would you like your Patronus to be?

I had to look this word up. And I'm not going to tell you what it means. Look it up yourself. But, my Patronus would be...I don't know. I don't think I fully understand what this is looking for.

Edit: I just reviewed Jonathan's blog and I found this quiz. Your Patronus is the Wolf! The wolf is a symbol of wisdom, loyalty and independence. He is one of history's more revered (and feared) characters.That your Patronus is a wolf says that you are very wise as a person. You tend to be loyal to your friends, even when they screw up, but you are also independent. Finding that balance is key; finding it will ensure that you will be a wonderful witch or wizard.

11. DW question: which is YOUR Doctor?


12. Who's the most famous person you've ever met? What happened?

Scott Hamilton...threw away his autograph
Tommy Lee Jones...threw away his autograph
I meet famous people at work, apparently. It doesn't phase me. Because I'm so conceited that even though they're famous, I still think I'm better than they are.

13. Which book would you most like to have written? Why?

Scarlet Letter? No, um....The Prince by Machiavelli

14. Which instrument would you most like to be a virtuoso on?

The piano.

15. What's your favourite food?

Eh...I'm usually not into food....Alcohol is a different story. If I had to choose, tho, I'd choose Mexican food.

16. And your favourite alcoholic drink?

There's the question I was looking for! Ketel One Vodka followed by Stoli Vodka.

17. Do you believe in love at first sight?

I don't believe in love. I never have, really. I believe in self love. You have to have that before you can love others. I just don't believe that too many people truly have self love. So they get into relatoinships with other people and end up disappointed. That may just be the bitterness talking, but I'm sure if you asked me this question a week ago, I would have had the same answer. But I don't believe in true love between men and women (or men and men). I'm too jaded to believe in it.

18. Which film would you most like to have directed?

Hm...I'm a big fan of Wes Anderson (sans The Like Aquatic....that was just a clusterfuck). I'd say The Royal Tenenbaums. I absolutely love that movie.

19. Which sport would you most like to win an Olympic gold medal in?

Figure Skating. So I could be the first black female to win! Damn you, Debbie Thomas! You were once my hero!

20. If you could put yourself as any person/type of person in any place in any period of history, who/what/when/where would you be,and why?

Sometime I wish I lived during the 60s and the Civil Rights period. I'm pretty radical and I feel I would have been a great force for change. But on the other hand, I like where I am now. I likethe fact that I'm able to date a white guy with no (well, maybe few) people judging. On one hand it would have been cool to change the course of history. On the other hand, it's nice to be able to benefit from those who came before me.

21. What's your favourite piece of religious/spiritually-inspired art, music or writing? (Interpret as you will)

I love Madonna & Child paintings. When I was in high school I took this medieval art class. We studied paintings, sculpture, and architecture. I was fascinated with different interpretations of the Madonna & Child. Even now, if I find myself at an art museum, I gravitate to the Italian Art section because I like to enjoy that art.

22. Tell me about 3 journals on yourlist that you find particularly interesting (either for style or content).

1) Kitty Can Scratch - she's currently in love right now and it's nice to hear about her adventures in love. Yes, I said I don't believe in love...but that mostly applies to me being in love. I like to hear about other people's successful relationships because they're so happy. And other people's happiness makes me happy.

2) The Pink Shoe - I love how she is able to write about truly random things. And it's almost like she never has a bad day (although I know that's impossible). Her blog is fun and uplifting.

3) Random Thoughts - She's married and happy (imagine!). Plus she comments on my blog. And you can't hate a person who's willing to comment.

23. What's your favourite piece of clothing that you own, and where did you get it?

Hmm...maybe my silk poncho that I bought from BCBG on an absolute whim. I tend to not spend a ton of money on clothes (I save that for shoes) but on this particualr day I felt that my life could not go on without this poncho. And it wasn't even on sale. Other than that, I take pride in each and every pair of shoes that I own. They complete me.

24. Which places would you most like to visit?

I would like to visit Away....away from here for a while. Maybe a month. Just to see what it's like.

you're fifth would obviously be mariah or kylie, cuz they're crazy and we could sing with them. but not brit brit or j simp. maybe chrissy handjob. and can the old person be elizabeth taylor? i feel she'd talk about sex alot. think of all those husbands? and she knows MJ. and it's better to know someone that knows him than know him directly. i feel that would make dinner awkward when he keeps asking for jesus juice.

oh and yellowstone is pretty, but yosemite is prettier.

totally stealing this from you. i'll give you a shoutout :)

I actually gakked this quiz from a LiveJournal belonging to a British person, which is why some of the questions don't make sense and why some of the words are misspelled.

I'm sorry that you were put in such a bad situation the other night. Guys are scum. I say take a vacation, let off some steam and have some fun by yourself. Give yourself a chance to regroup.

Whoa! This might have been the deepest meme I've ever read. It would have taken me about 5 days to think up all of those answers!

Marilyn Monroe would be a fun dinner guest. I vote for Liz Taylor, too.
