"Lucille Austero: What you did to me at lunch today...you were ashamed to be with me!
Gob: No! I was ashamed to be seen with you! I like being with you!
Lucille Austero: I'm sorry, but you have no courage.
Gob: How can you say that? Shhh. Thought I heard my mom. (whispers) How can you say that?"
1. In two words, describe your last relationship?
2. When was the last time you shaved your legs?
Haha…whoa. Let's just say I'm lucky I'm dating a dirty European! Ok look, I moved like last week and I left the razor at my old place. ::defensive:: Besides, Bernard never notices, save for this one time that I slacked off for over a month and he finally said, "Dude…shave your legs!" Doesn't that just prove that my leg hair is very delicate and easily overlooked?
3. What were you doing this morning at 8-am?
Sleeping. ::blissful sigh::
4. What were you doing 15 minutes ago?
Chatting with Dre about her problems. She's got lots of 'em.
5. Are you any good at math?
Calculus and I have a love/hate relationship. We haven't interacted in a while though. I admit it's my fault; I'm avoiding his calls.
6. Your prom night?
It was nice. I went with my good guy friend instead of my boyfriend at the time, and a week later my good guy friend became my new boyfriend and first true love!
7. Do you have any famous ancestors?
I have no idea. I think I would've heard about it if I did, but my family's not that big on communication.
8. Have you ever taken out a loan to pay for school?
I have a no-limit credit line at the bank of Momma Ho. I highly recommend that institution: no interest rates, and no due dates…no debt at all, actually!
9. Do you know the words to the song on your myspace profile?
Yes. It's a lovely song. I arrived at the Hotel Café in Hollywood just in time to miss her performance last weekend. Thanks, babe.
10. Last thing received in the mail?
A letter from a bank asking if I wanted to change the mortgage payment schedule from monthly to bi-weekly, which supposedly will save thousands of dollars in interest.
11. How many different beverages have you drank today?
Two. I had the last quarter of a bottle of Nantucket Nectars Watermelon Strawberry juice, and then Dr. Pepper from In & Out.
12. Do you ever leave messages on people's answering machines?
No. It's bad enough I have check messages, let alone leave them.
13. Who did you lose your CONCERT virginity to?
It was at a rave where the headliners were Outkast…but that was back when the only reason I was at the rave was definitely not to listen to the music…so even though I enjoyed their rendition of "The Whole World" I didn't think much of it. It was only later when I sobered up that I was like, "Hey, I saw Outkast! I didn't even know they were supposed to be there!"
14. Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?
15. What's the most painful dental procedure you've had?
It was more psychologically painful than anything else. When I was younger, my orthodontist did everything but give me braces. I don't know why, because I'm sure all the various stuff he tried ended up costing the family more, not to mention that maybe if I had been given braces, I wouldn't need them now. Anyway, so the most traumatizing thing he did was put some sort of contraption in my mouth that needed to be winded up in the morning, and down at night. Well, apparently my dad misunderstood him, and kept winding up until I winded up with a huge gap in my front teeth! Then I get to the orthodontist two weeks later, and the fucker's laughing his ass off at me! I still have pictures of me gaping at my sister's birthday cake with a huge, empty opening in my teeth.
16. What do you hate?
Right now…I hate not having a refrigerator. Which in turn makes me hate my asshole of a father. Which in turn makes me hate marriage. Which in turn makes me hate my boyfriend. Which in turn makes me hate winter in Belgium. Can you tell I don't think very logically?
17. Any plans for tonight?
I already yelled at my boyfriend for watching The Ultimate Fighter instead of hanging out with me, and put him to sleep…so now I'm going to finish this survey, brush my teeth, wash my face, pee, and get to bed myself.
18. Do you like the ocean?
It's swell. Get it? Swell!? Ocean? SWELL?!? HAHAHAHHA!
19. Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different flavored popcorns for Christmas?
No, but it's this very question that made me want to steal this survey from Dre and complete it. Why? Because I have got the best gift ever for all you guys. Are you ready? Here it is. Don't say I never loved you. Because this proves it. Hey, and to prove you love me back, whoever gets the peanut butter/white chocolate flavor should trade with me…or even just give it to me…because you love me that much.
20. Have you ever been to a planetarium?
I think so. I think we went to the Griffith Park Observatory once. Wouldn't put my life on that though. That vague memory could just be mixed in with bits from movies and wishful thinking.
21. Who is your best friend?
See all those girls on the top row of my top friends list? That's them, minus Stephanie, who doesn't have Myspace. I also still consider Giz a really close homie, and I knew if I wanted to, I could call her up and cry my eyes out, and vice versa…but we just never do.
22. Something you are excited about?
Uhh…Vegas next weekend! And Yosemite, if it happens and if I can make it! And Switzerland for New Year's! And Mexico next summer! And getting my degree sometime in the not too distant future!
23. What is your favorite flavor of JELLO?
Lime or strawberry. Whipped cream is a must.
24. Are any of your great-grandparents still alive?
No. But their pictures are on shrines in various households of my family.
25. Describe your keychain:
It's like eight years old, this dirty, pink, leopard print, bean-filled thing cut in the shape of a K. It's rather hideous, but I swear I would never be able to find my keys were it not for that familiar flash of pink poking out from somewhere. I will be so sad when the fabric finally deteriorates off the key ring. It's lasted longer than both the Jamba Juice keychain and the Two Lips one, and those were made of some sort of metal alloy!
26. Where do you keep your change?
I'm pretty good at keeping it in my coin purse. But sometimes I get lazy (imagine that, me getting lazy!) and I throw it haphazardly into my purse, only to berate myself later because change is so dirty and it totally destroys the lining of the handbag.
27. When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people?
Probably last semester, for accounting class. I'm not shy in front of an audience.
28. What kind of winter coat do you have?
I need one of those. And a couple of weeks ago when I found this LaROK one I actually sort of liked, Bernard wouldn't let me get it because I've been broke lately and he wants to see me exert some financial control. But that's ok, because it was lined with rabbit fur, and I think rabbits are too cute to be lining a coat of mine anyway. Besides, it was more trendy than classy, and I want either an elegant all-black coat or a fashionable one with really cute buttons and adorable lining, like in Custo Barcelona's winter collection. Ok, but being realistic, I live in Southern California, where it's not even close to being necessary, and my annual winter trips to Europe are not reason enough for such a big investment. Unless I go get a cheap one from Burlington Coat Factory or something.
29.If you could kill anyone in history at birth who would it be?
I know most people would say Hitler, and I'm veering towards him too, but I think I'd have to do more research if this huge opportunity were to slip into my grasp. Every country, every era, has had its share of atrocious tragedies. A decision like this cannot be made lightly; it would be both irresponsible and potentially harmful to your own existence! Ahem. Anyway...
30. Do you sleep with the door to your room open or closed?
Ever since I moved, I keep it open. And it's kind of nice, because so far my sister and I have gotten along really well, and I was all touched the other night when I noticed the door to her room was open as well when she went to bed. Last time I lived with her, we each had our bedroom doors glued shut, no matter what time of day.
