What world from a video game would you most like to live in? What draws you to this fictional universe?
Either Monkey Island, King's Quest, or Animal Crossing. In Monkey Island I could be a mighty pirate! And it's just plain fun. King's Quest is full of magic and awesome adventures and hilarity. And in Animal Crossing I could make a living picking fruit and catching bugs and exchanging furniture... My neighbors would be cute animals. The sweet life, yes.
Those or Pokemon. Because then, yanno, I'd have Pokemon. :B
I am now the owner of a 3DS because I said "screw it" and bought it. I usually wait it out for the next improved system to come along. But I figure if they make a newer, better 3DS I'll just trade up. It is fabulous. And I need this to play the new Animal Crossing when it is released. ;3;
Do you believe in any superstitions?
When I was a kid I had some weird ones. I'd always have an even number of ice cubes in a glass because I'd think like, even if they were melting, they'd have a friend ice cube to be with. No third wheels...
I dunno if that's slightly psychotic. But I thought it would be bad luck to have an odd number of ice cubes.
Hey, and it snowed finally... Really that was weird, winter with no snow.
In case of an impending zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice, and why?
Actually as someone who's worked retail, I'm pretty sure that apocalypse already happened awhile ago.
Buuut. Would antivirus count? That's what I'd want. Or I'd need something long range so the zombies wouldn't get too close. Maybe a machine gun? Because you really don't want them to get near you
, that's always a big no-no... Maybe grenades would be good, too. Because, like me, not everyone has great aim.
Or for something quieter I guess a crowbar would do. A really big wrench would work, too. Or a candle stick.

At what age did you stop believing in Santa?
I still luv Santa, okay... I guess I believed in Santa a little late, like until 4th or 5th grade? Although I think I still did the whole believe in Santa thing until 6th grade since I have a little brother. I didn't want to ruin things and I still thought the idea of getting presents from Santa was fun. I was really into the whole Santa thing when I was little, though. I'd write him detailed letters asking questions about how he did this and that and I left carrots out for his reindeer. One of my most "magical" Christmas memories is getting a hand written letter from Santa answering the note I'd written to him. Good thing my parents aren't religious, I would have bought into that like whoa
as I was a pretty gullible kid and wanted to believe in concepts of magic and fantasy and whatever. But Santa is awesome.
Unrelated note: Wow this new watch I got really smells like charcoal lighter fluid. I hope it wears off by tomorrow pfff... :s
Oh, yeah. Have a happy holiday time, everyone!
If you could solve one problem in the world, what would it be?

Dreams are usually unobtainable. So, make it possible for everyone to follow their dreams! Yays~
That or give everyone compassion. Then people would do the "right thing" and not be an asshole instead. Many problems solved.
Also, not that it's a no-brainer of an answer, giving people enough food/water is paramount. Imagine what humanity can achieve if nobody had to worry about where their next meal is coming from. Food and shelter for our friends, animal companions, too. They deserve happiness and not to suffer.
What is your must-see holiday movie?
One random answer will win a $50 Amazon gift card. [Details here
The Grinch. I find it too adorable and cute. I enjoy the cartoon, too, of course. But I love Jim Carrey as the Grinch. He's so darn lovable...
I've also come to like Elf and watch that every year. But probably the only reason I want to watch it is USA showed it non-stop for several years and it was inevitable that a person would catch it multiple times. But then I do like Will Ferrell, too.
( Marshmallow World by Dean MartinCollapse )
What is your favorite holiday carol or song?
Best holiday/winter song, I love it. I didn't even know it existed until I heard it in a Toys R US ad, though. :p I kinda wish it would snow now, even though it is actually still autumn. Winter Solstice is the 22nd, but usually it snows before then.
After that comes A Very Colbert Christmas! This is my fav:
Welcome Christmas from How the Grinch Stole Christmas, It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Andy Williams, The Christmas Song by the Ravonettes and Happy Christmas by Lennon are also favs. :]
What is your favorite smell?
Maybe... Almond? I've loved the smell of almonds ever since I was little. I also really love sage.
Possibly my favorite are ocean scents, though. You know, like sea mineral smell. It doesn't smell like the actual
ocean, but still... I love coconut a lot, too. And lime. You can combine all those scents for a lovely summery smell. I used to buy this "summer beach" scented candle that smelled all like ocean, suntan lotion, and light hints of coconut and stuff. Nice
I'm very smell oriented. :I I guess a lot of people are, though. I like to smell things that trigger old memories and make me feel nostalgic. And I don't like using things that smell not particularly good... Like I adore my jojoba oil shampoo and I did not like the stinky salon smelling shampoo that it replaced. And being the hippie that I am, I think next I'll get a patchouli scented shampoo because I do adore patchouli...
I also like the smell of fresh cut grass. And wet pavement and rain. Those are the smells of summer. But now it's Christmas, so I'm happy with frosted pine and juniper and holly berry and pumpkin spice and crisp winter air and snow...
Where do you see yourself in five years or where don’t you see yourself? Why?
Well that's a good question. I have no idea, really, as I'm bad at this sort of thing. I'd like to see myself having direction? Hopefully. And would be, uh, somewhere I really enjoy? Hopefully with someone I really enjoy, don't want to be by myself. I'd say get better at pumping out art and writing and maybe actually publish something. Or something. :I (see I'm really bad at this)
And, well, hopefully I won't see myself in the gutter. I don't see myself in a Hollywood penthouse or on the moon, either. But, um, hopefully I don't find myself dependent on someone else for living arrangements and stuff. Also not in a flop house. I'm better at seeing what I don't
want to do. I dunno if that's a good thing or not.
So far vacation on the lake has been pretty nice. I could totally move down here. With a wave runner.
Tomorrow will involve boating and going to see a midnight showing of Harry Potter at Osage Beach. Hoping I don't fall asleep if I do go... I went on a long hike today and the heat has sorta been taking the wind out of my sails. Some napping may be in order. :x
And this is totally my summer song:
Are there any dreadfully bad TV shows that you wouldn't want your friends to know you watch? Confess! (This is LiveJournal, where we love you unconditionally.)
Probably the worst is Swamp People. :B It's a show about people who live in a swamp and go out and kill alligators and... idk, it's horrible yet it is actually entertaining. I watch it for the "omg they made a show about this, wut?" factor, I suppose... Because I certainly don't enjoy the alligator killing.
There's also a series called Mounted In Alaska ( for serious ) that is about a taxidermy shop. It sounds AWFUL, but I want to see at least one episode for the "wtf?" factor. That's also on The History Channel, along with Swamp People. I don't know what's with that network and junky series. I think they also do Pawn Stars and a couple other bad shows.
Discovery Channel is doing a series about killing wild boars called Hogs Gone Wild. Like, yeah, for real. Watching part of an episode of that for the badness factor just ticked me off. It's simply scare-mongering, like the wild pigs are just stupid, gross, bad animals that should be shot. And they show trained dogs attacking the pigs and don't give them basic humane treatment "because pigs is bad." :/
I'll also admit to watching River Monsters, mainly because the guy who hosts it is pretty hot. But the show does involve actual scientific research and educates about the fish that are caught and released. And the guy is hot.
Aaaand there's Fatal Attractions and the hoarder and gross-out parasite shows...
Which item in your wardrobe would shock the fashion police? Do you wear it in public?
Ahah... Probably my Warden t-shirt? It's fabulous, but... I realize I look ridiculous wearing it. I only put it on for special occasions, like last New Year's Eve and Halloween. And if I ever need to attend a funeral or wedding I'm set.
Actually yesterday I cleaned my room up like an adult person so it's not just one big mash of stuff all over the place. Or, well, I mostly organized it. Still needs work. I hadn't realized how, not dirty, but cluttered it was. And I'd failed to notice just how many damn packing peanuts the cats had managed to scatter all over the place... =_= I ended up with six garbage bags full of old clothes that I need to get rid of. They had just been sitting around in the closet or jammed into my dresser. It's embarrassing since some of it is junk I wore in high school and I just didn't get rid of it before I moved here. I still have too many old t-shirts that I will only wear as pajamas, but several I wanted to keep for sentimental value. I should have gotten rid of more... I really wore an embarrassing amount of over-sized t-shirts in high school, for serious.
At least I just have a small pile of them now and not like a gigantic heap of them.
I realize that my room has, like, zero decor as I never got stuff to decorate it. I'm the only one who ever goes in there so I just didn't see a need to. :I
Is there any song you could listen to 20 times in a day without ever losing interest?
Um. There are many... Some of the songs on my iPod have a ridiculous number of plays. If I like a song, I can listen to it over and over... And over. This is a new one!
You can't tell me that's not awesome. And, yeah, I've watched Yo Gabba Gabba!... Mostly for the guests they have and the music. Like The Shins, The Killers, Of Montreal... Even Devo. But it is overall a fun show. And DJ Lance Rock is totally cute. And awesome.
Which song would you pick to describe your romantic life, and why?
... Is there a love song about, like, having a nonexistent love life? Like, there's nothing going on... at all... ever... And would that even count as a romantic song? Or is there a song about how you will die alone and be eaten by your poor cats?...I actually think Love Stinks is a pretty good song, maybe I'm alone in this, idk.
I have to say that if this entire season of House is going to be all about how House and Cuddy have omg finally shacked up
, I'm going to be pretty not interested in watching it.... Really I was hoping they'd do away with the whole Cuddy/House thing after she adopted a baby and after she was in that relationship with the detective guy, but of course not. They keep bringing it back.
They take a great character like House, who enjoys/wants/needs to be miserable, and they ruin it. If the whole season is about whether or not their 'ship can work... idk. Hopefully it will crash and burn and it can be put to rest, finally. Or Cuddy dies. One of those.
Surely Nintendo's plan was to create certain Pokemon, where if they were ever leaked, no one would believe that they were actually from the game. "The people will think they are fake Pokemon, then when the game comes out, they will be surprised rather than spoiled!
I wasn't going to look at all of the new mon, but I glanced over them quickly because I'm sure I'll be spoiled before it's released in the US, anyway
... I know I'll like the game when I actually play it, so I'm not gonna be all BLAH a lot of the Pokemon are terrible, Pokemon is dead to me now
!11!! Really I just wanted to know for sure about the starter evos. I swear I can't win with those guys, becaue either I love the first evolution of a starter and hate the end result or vice-versa. XI
Anyway. I do love the Dark Dragons.( picsCollapse )
And the archeopteryx Pokemon. That was my fav dinosaur as a kid so... Although technically I think it's the world's first bird.( I will learn how to spell ArcheopteryxCollapse )
And there's like a Unico/My Little Pony legendary. Pretty cute. :I( It"s badass ApplejackCollapse )
Unrelated: I'm trying to put together a fan soundtrack... thing. Just for the hell of it because I kind of like sharing music. I've never done it before, though, so I'm afraid it might not be received well. Why did you pick this music? That makes no sense!

WELL IF hamburger IS GOING TO ASK A QUESTION I WILL ANSWER IT!
Was there something you were afraid of as a child that just seems silly to you now?
I was afraid of bug people living in the walls. I saw The Never Ending Story II and the giant mechanical bugs freaked me out and I was afraid they would come out of the walls/ground/whatever and go on a bug rampage, idek.
I was also scared of the world exploding and getting E. coli and mad cow disease... But then I was sorta a paranoid kid. And it's not like those things couldn't happen. : [
What are the best and worst love songs of all time? Are there any that have special meaning to you (whether positive or negative)? Why?
What is love? Baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me, no more! Okay, uh... Really gotta say Unchained Melody is probably the best. It always gets me. ;.; Although I do also love Bette Midler's The Rose, since it gives hope to the heartsick and downtrodden. When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun's love
in the spring
becomes the rose
Even if you're alone and cold and lonely, with some love you can blossom into a beautiful flower. I always felt like the one who won't be taken, anyway.
The worst... Well me and my brother concluded that it has to be Boom Boom Boom (Lets Go Back To My Room) because, lol... We heard it on the radio one night and just burst out laughing
. I mean, you just gotta look at the title to know it's horrible. After that, I dunno, the Titanic song? It's not really bad
bad, just... overplayed. Well and I sorta felt different about it when I learned it was played at funerals...
But, uh... I had to seek out this video because I remember watching it on Valentine's Day when I was a kid:
It actually takes place in December, but oh well... I really liked the animation and the song. It's so shmoopy.
Now I gotta go to the bank because my automatic payments got jacked up or some junk (I dunno!) and so I only have 33 cents in my checking account. 33 cents! And then I gotta make a red velvet cake which should be worth it. :d
Happy Valentine's Day!

I've become a big Conan O'Brien fan over the years, so if he goes off the air... My brother is an even bigger fan than I am, so I'm sure he'll be disappoint. I feel bad we didn't get to see him in Chicago. I requested tickets, but didn't get them. I was always sorta hoping we'd get out to LA again to see him. :(
I might get a Twitter account just so I can join Team Conan. Maybe. Twitter just seems so fast paced. And I am not a quick person... =__=
And OMG, gotta say the newest ep of House = the GEHYEST thing ever, in the best way possible. Even though Wilson and House are so totally straight, GOSH! I was laughing and squeeing through the majority of the episode like a gigantic moron... Who cares if part of it was really sad, okay?? I don't...
