*found buried in the archives of my email (hence the answers that sound like chainmail)
1. What time is it?
one in each ear with earings in them (that NEVER come out) and 2 more closed over holes in my left and one in the right
4. What is the most recent movie that you’ve seen in a theatre?
It’s been such a long time I don’t even remember… I think Constantine in Winnipeg with the fam in dubious conditions…
5. What is your favourite toy as a kid?
Dishes! Which is ironic… I hate cooking and any preparation and clean up involved.
6. Place of birth:
Brandon General Hospital, Manitoba – Tuesday, June 10, 1980 11:08am
7. Favourite new food:
Hmmm… I’m a creature of habit and haven’t tried anything new for a long time. So the newest food I’ve tried that I love would be gyoza.
8. Have you ever been to Africa?
No… too many bugs for my liking – as if it’s been a conscious decision not to go…
9. Ever been toilet papering?
No, but I did my own rendition (to my own house) with yarn in a sad attempt at a spooky cobweb for Halloween decorations.
10. Have you ever loved someone so much it made you cry?
Various guys since I was 5 years old (Ah, Matthew… my first love) but who hasn’t…. This question should go hand in hand with “Are you human?”
11. Have you ever been in a car accident?
never (knock on wood)
12. Croutons or bacon bits?
Must I choose?! Many times in my life, it has been croutons and bacon bits ONLY as my dinner.
13. Favourite day of the week:
Thursday – ever since I was 12… Cemented in my mind as my favourite when Friends came on the air.
14. Favourite restaurant:
Right now, probably Sushi Inn but only because it’s still a treat but I also really like Demetre’s (cause it’s all desserts – but they serve some food – their kickass mandarin orange chicken salad is my favourite)
15. Favourite flower:
very pale pink peonies (or anything my boyfriend gives me)
16. Favourite sport to watch:
Ick… I’m not much of a spectator (or for that matter, participant) – if games were restricted to half an hour, I’d watch – I do get roped into watching basketball, hockey, football, etc. with my boyfriend but only because I don’t pay attention to the game but make fun of the way players look. I even watch golf.
17. Favourite drink:
CHOCOLATE MILK!! Need you even ask?
18. Favourite ice cream:
mmm, green tea
19. Disney or Warner Brothers?
Disney, although I very much appreciate Warner Bros. for introducing children to classical music. Good ol’ Bugs…
20. Favourite fast food restaurant:
21. What colour is your bedroom carpet?
22. How many times you failed your driver’s test?
I have as of yet to take it!
23. From whom did you get your last e-mail?
Another one from Teedah! And then before that, one from my Auntie Deb, and before that from a classmate who wanted to know the book our professor suggested we read that would only take 2 hours (Tao Te Ching – incase I’ve stirred your curiosity)
24. What do you do most often when you are bored?
sleep mostly or work on my website
anywhere from 5:30pm to 4am but generally I shoot for 11:30
26. Favourite TV shows:
Friends will always be number one in my heart but my boyfriend and I are obsessed with CSI
27. Who was the last person you went to dinner with?
It must have been with my boyfriend because I don’t remember. That’s kind of sad – must have been awhile!
28. Ford or Chevy?
I don’t drive so, I guess, neither.
29. What are you listening to right now?
I’m embarrassed to admit it… Whitesnake – Is This Love… but in my defence, I only downloaded it because I didn’t know if I’d recognize it… and I don’t – so now I’ll listen to The Wiggles (MUCH less embarrassing) …to make a C for Takeo.
30. What is your favourite colour?
I LOVE colour in general… Everyone knows my hands down all time until I die favourite is cobalt blue and the colour I tell everyone is my favourite is yellow (as in ‘yellow girl‘) but I also love deep red, chartreuse (sp?), any shade of purple blue from periwinkle to midnight, etc. etc. etc.
31. How many tattoos do you have?
One…so far. It’s the Chinese character for “pure” – the meaning of my name
I’m carefully planning my next one(s) – the Chinese character for loyalty on my lower back just above my waistband (designed by myself) and/or a lotus flower sticking out of murky water on my shoulder with (or without – haven’t decided yet) a koi fish swimming – may even be a separate tattoo by itself … To me, it’s all about self-expression and almost memorializing personal triumph.
32. How many pets do you have?
Nothing alive… My boyfriend and I have “the family” of stuffed animals that we’ve given to each other over the years.
33. Which came first the chicken or the egg?
Eggs are for breakfast and chicken is for dinner so the real question is… what time did I wake up?
34. How many people are you sending this e-mail to?
my closest friends and my family members that may be amused
