11:26 pm: I should be cleaning my room.
Meme from Hannah!

The Seven Deadly Sins

WRATH
Who did you last get angry with?
Whoever it was that authored the goddamn stupid email that landed in my inbox about why every Muslim in the world is evil, because Al Quaida is. I wanna email the fucker back telling him I can't tell the difference between a Baptist mission group and the Ku Klux Klan. Fucker.

What is your weapon of choice?
Meh, none. I couldn't kill someone to save my life--not for lack of hate, but for lack of skill.

Would you hit a member of the opposite sex?
In self defense, totally, though it would not probably have much effect.

How about the same sex?
Ditto.

Who was the last person who got really angry at you?
I don't know. I tend to block those memories out of my head, because people being angry at me is one of my biggest fears.

What is your pet peeve?
Improper use of the apostrophe. I think it should be punishable by hanging.

Do you keep grudges, or can you let them go easily?
Hard to answer. My grudges are like cancer--they can go into remission, but I can never truly say that they're 100% gone for good.

SLOTH
What is one thing you're supposed to do daily that you haven't?
The spiritual excercises of Saint Ignatus Loyola.

What is the latest you've ever woken up?
Probably 2 pm. I feel awful when I sleep late.

Name a person you've been meaning to contact, but haven't?
I can't really think of anyone...

What is the last lame excuse that you made?
"I have a lot of homework."

Have you ever watched an infomercial all the way through?
I guess so--only short ones, though, like maybe 3-5 minutes.

How many times did you hit the snooze button on your alarm clock this morning?
Once, but I didn't feel like sleeping so I got up anyway.

GLUTTONY
What is your overpriced yuppie beverage of choice?
Naked juice smoothies--perhaps this crosses over into the Lust category?

Are you a meat eater?
I am, but I'm not all "hurr meat good hurr!" like some people I know. It's one thing I dislike about our SCA group: the people make some big funny deal out of how much meat they eat, and tend to lightly make fun of vegetarians. I eat meat, but I don't like it any more than anything else I eat. There's nothing wrong with someone who doesn't eat meat. Making fun of them is asinine, and bragging about how much animal flesh or how little vegetable matter you eat just makes me want to retort with "Yeah, and I bet your constipation is awful!" Either that, or "Yeah, and I bet your semen tastes like shit!" Because the meat/fruit balance is kinda what determines the taste. I have heard. And goddamnit, I should be a vegan--not for love of the cows, but for hate of them. I want all the cows and pigs and chickens to DIE. If we didn't raise them, they'd stop polluting our air with their farts, our land with their hoof-stompings, and our water with their feces. Industrial meat/dairy agriculture is a huge polluter. Fuckin' cows. Fuckin' me for supporting the industry with every chicken leg I eat.

What is the greatest amount of alcohol you've had in one sitting/outing/event?
Church. Sip of Jesus wine. I don't like the taste of alcohol, and I like drunkeness even less.

Are you comfortable with your drinking and eating habits?
See above vegan comment. Health-wise, though, I think I'm all right.

Do you enjoy candy and sweets?
Mmmmmmmmm yes I do.

Which do you prefer: sweets, salty foods or spicy foods?
Depends on the mood, but usually sweet.

Have you ever looked at a small house pet or child and thought, "lunch"?
Only the children I hate.

GREED
How many credit cards do you own?
Just the debit card, though I can use it as a credit card. I don't know what the difference is, except that for one I have to sign and for one I have to enter my PIN.

If you had a million dollars, what would you do with it?
Buy my own tiny island, landscape it, plant quick-growing redwoods, build a sailing ship, rocket, cabin, giant tree elevator, big gears, pillars, and library, and live on my own Myst Island.

Would you rather be rich or famous?
Famous, specifically in the form of so famous that the internet holds entire communities dedicated to slashing my novels' characters.

Would you accept a boring job if it meant that you would make megabucks?
I sure would.

PRIDE
What's one thing that you have done that you're most proud of?
Phi Beta Kappa. I really wish Ms. Achenbach could have made it to that banquet, instead of her having to stay home sick and Joyce Femia inviting herself to my party. grr... wrath.

What's one thing you have done that your parents are most proud of?
I don't really know. I think they're proud of me, but I'm not sure what specifically they're proud of. The last thing I remember my mom proudly mentioning to other people was that I chopped the onions for the Thanksgiving stuffing. So... yay onion-chopping?

What thing would you like to accomplish late in your life?
Living without fear.

Do you get annoyed by coming in second place?
I have learned over the years to squash my jealousy and unhappiness and shove it deep inside me, never to be released. This metaphorical long-lasting tampon hasn't given me TSS so far :D

Have you ever entered a contest of skill, knowing you were of much higher skill than all the other competitors?
The only place where I was better than everyone else was in the Arts and Crafts hut at camp. And even that was tenative. So, no, I have no contest in which I know I am better than other people.

Have you ever cheated to get a better score?
... Fifty... is a lot... of thousands...

What did you do today that you're proud of?
Filled out my first serious job application. Haven't turned it in yet because upon coming to the section that asked for my driver's license information I discovered that I have LOST MY DRIVER'S LICENSE. This is a pickle.

LUST
How many people have you seen naked (not counting movies, family, strippers, locker rooms)?
Two... eeeeeeeuuuuuuughgghgghhhhh I don't want to remember that second incident. Worst babysitting experience EVER. (and no, it wasn't the kid)

How many people have seen you naked (not counting physicians, doctors, family, locker rooms, or when you were a young child)?
Well, just the one, I guess... though I am going to try for that nude modeling job with the art department next semester, so the number might jump quite a bit then.

Have you ever caught yourself staring at the chest/crotch of a person of your chosen sex during a normal conversation?
Goddamnit Mary why did you have to wear that dress? We were in church, for Christ's sake! Yours are Satan's bosoms that distract the faithful.

What is your favorite body part of a person of your gender choice?
Noses.

Have you ever had sexual encounters (including kissing/making out) with multiple persons? No.
At the same time? NO. At all? Yes.

Have you ever been propositioned by a prostitute?
Nah, I don't lead that interesting of a life.

ENVY
What item of your friends would you most want to have for your own?
All Mikey's swords.

Who would you want to go on "Trading Spaces" with?
I've never seen that show.

If you could be anyone who existed in the world, who would you be?
I don't really want to say it, because it's someone who could concievably be reading this, and it might make them feel weird.

Have you ever been cheated on?
Yes, and this is why I should never be allowed to date.

Have you ever wished you had a physical feature different from your own?
My chin is too manly, my midriff too squishy, my skin too acneful.

What inborn trait do you see in others that you wish you had for yourself?
Worldly knowledge.

WHAT DEADLY SIN....
Do you do the most often?
Gluttony.

Do you do the least often?
If we make the distinction between lusting and sexing, then lust.

Is your favorite to act on?
Perversely, envy.

This is officially the best metaphor, ever.

Alsooooo... I am still swelling. Which sucks. Which may I mean have to back out of Rocky Horror tomorrow. :((((( Next friday, I will be better. Would that work for you? Also, are you up for our usual First-Night festivities?
