I used to love these things. I love the tidbits you uncover about people, especially the things in common — OMG Yellow is your favorite color too!?! or the unbelievable things about others, like, someone actually hates rice?!? Is that even a thing?
Josh did this the other day, and I wanted to have a go.
- What time is it where you are?
- What one superpower do you wish you could have?
Unbreakable Immune System
- Are you lonesome tonight?
Today? Ever? No.
- What are you wearing?
One of The Mister’s old shirts and jeans. Aren’t you lucky I’m going out today? Hah.
- Any big plans for the weekend?
Yes! I’m not going to set an alarm for two whole days! Oh the sleep I will sleep!
- Are you in love?
I am. It’s terrible.
- Do you have a crush?
No, I have dozens. I have boy crushes and girl crushes and intellectual crushes and voice crushes and music crushes and writer crushes and you just would not believe how crush-y I am.
- Does that person know?
No, none of them know. That’s kinda how crushes work.
- If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would it be?
Someplace colder. Someplace where I wear many layers and clutch hot coffee and the wind whips my hair. I bet Maine is nice right now. Nova Scotia. Argentina. Antarctica. No, not Antarctica, I’ve not heard anything good about the food there…
- What one book would you most want to read on a deserted island?
A book about the slow demise of anyone who would ask this sorta question
- Cats, dogs, or both?
Both. I am a cat person though. I think I may actually require a cat in order to live. But I love dogs. Especially my dog. My dog is the best dog ever.
- Favorite time of year?
I like any time the highs are in the 50’s and the lows are in the 20’s, precipitation is a plus. Fall is nice, but right now it’s still in the freakin 80’s.
- Favorite hobby?
- Do you get along with your parents?
Mostly. The three of them are all very deeply flawed whereas I am perfect.
- Do you believe in love at first sight?
Yes and No. I think there’s a soul’s recognition sometimes and sometimes that might lead to romance and even lifelong romance, but I also think sometimes it’s a thunderbolt of attraction, because lemme tell you, people know what they want as soon as they see it.
- What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done?
I slid about six feet down an icy sidewalk at the crowded shuttle bus stop on McKinley Avenue, skirt over my head. Like a skirt bouquet, whoosh!
- What has been your greatest accomplishment so far?
Survival? I dunno.
- Are you missing anybody right now?
Yes. I miss everyone, because no one is here right now.
- What do you want to be when you grow up?
Super old and wrinkly, like white-haired with crosshatch skin, but with clear eyes and capable, if twisted, hands
- Do you have a celebrity crush?
Yeah — but not like, screaming, shrine building, obsessive crushes…
