So, one of the new memes involves interviewing. I post the answers to 5 questions generously given me by suibhne_geilt (and later from leech), and then offer to give 5 questions to anyone who comments on this entry. If'n you comment, I give you 5 questions, and you post the answers in your journal and make the same offer to others.

1. Is there some physical feature or characteristic of a person that makes you all lightheaded and swoony?
I'm a big fan of eyes in general, and it helps if I feel comfortable enough to actually look into someone's eyes - it's kind of a rare occurance.

2. You’ve just graduated college. Are you in the same field/planning the same kind of future that you were when you started?
Well, ish. I originally wanted to be a linguist, and I still want to do something with languages. Ideally, I want to be a literary translator, and I guess that's been what I've wanted to do for a couple of years now.

3. If you had to leave Oregon, but could settle anywhere else in the world you wanted, where would you choose, and why?
Oooh, tough question. I think I'd want to go back to Spain, where we were stationed when I was 11.

4. Are you going to get any more tattoos? If so, what and where?
I've been thinking about it. Possibly a symbol for wisdom, either another hieroglyph or a character in Japanese. As to where, I'm not sure. Definitely someplace that can't be seen when I'm wearing shorts and a tank top. :)

5. What kind of five-year-old were you?
Heh. Well, I was abominably cute, if I do say so myself. Long curly black hair, dimples, long eyelashes, big brown eyes, the works. By five I was already realizing that I wasn't quite like other kids, because while they were learning their ABC's I was reading my brother's Hardy Boys books. I think that was the year I got glasses (huge honkin' thick ones, no less), and my geekdom went from there.

1. From whence came the epithet "Mortimer the Mighty"?
(Pet peeve time! It's whence, not from whence. Whence literally means "from where." Woo, the Mad Grammarian strikes again! :) )
It comes from a website that generates slogans. I typed in Mortimer, the name of a small critter that became my mascot in college at he was the only thing I could draw (that's him in the icon), and one of my favorite slogans was "The Mortimer is mightier than the sword."

2. How much do you enjoy rain? (Alternately, how much rain do you enjoy? And what the hell is up with Portland's weather?)
I adore rain. If I'm to be out and about, then I rather like the Portland Drool (tm) where it isn't quite raining, but it's still wet. If I'm to be inside, then I'd rather a heavy rain or a thunderstorm. Mmm, thunder...I wish I knew what was up with Portland weather, too. This whole "heat" thing is for the birds.

3. Which role would you love to be cast as?
Oooh, I like that question. As far as musicals go, I'd kill for Gypsy or Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd. If gender weren't an issue, I'd adore playing Javier in Les Miserables.

4. Calliope music: entertaining, or disconcerting?
Disconcerting. No question about it.

5. How on earth did you get the impression that I am a "good sir"?
I call most of my male friends good sir at some point, usually when I'm being humorously pretentious or ridiculously polite.

think long and hard about getting a japanese word/symbol tattooed on you. wouldnt want to become part of that "yellow cool" (heavy quote marks on that one) scene in this country. but a heirogylph would be cool.
Jun. 7th, 2003 12:08 am (UTC)
Good point. I was just thinking Japanese because it's such a pretty language.

Hah! You commented, now you get questions.
1. If you had to choose between being blind and being deaf, which would you choose and why?
2. Where would you like to settle down/what would be your ideal place to live?
3. Why Reed? :)
4. Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Can you see yourself in 10 years? I can't.
5. What are you determined to do before you die?
Jun. 7th, 2003 09:49 am (UTC)
Ooh, I want quesitons!
Jun. 7th, 2003 09:50 pm (UTC)
So questions you shall have. :)

1. Why a red souffle? Why not yellow?
2. What book or movie has made you feel most warm and fuzzy? (Bad porn excluded)
3. If you could be a member of any alien race, which one would you be and why?
4. What's your favorite chemical reaction?
5. Oooh! Wazzat?

Questions, questions, WHEE!!


And the answer to "Are you going to get another tattoo?" should ALWAYS be yes. At the very least, a very positive "Maybe."
This from someone who has yet to scrounge money for her first. >< I'm tryin'.

1. What kind of tattoo and where are you thinking?
2. OK, worst case scenario: You've got the world at your fingertips, but no electricity or phone lines. What do you do to keep yourself occupied? (It's daylight, by the by, so you can still see.)
3. Fire: friend or foe?
4. What's your favorite writing utensil?
Jun. 8th, 2003 01:31 pm (UTC)
Um, what the hell is a "meme"? Oh yeah, questions, questions! Even though I don't have an LJ can I still get questions?

~me :*
Jun. 9th, 2003 10:32 pm (UTC)
A meme is one of those things that gets passed from journal to journal to journal, ad nauseum. Basically, we're bored. :)

1. If you were a blanket, what would you look like? Yes, I'm weird. :P
2. If you could take a photograph of anything in the world..?
3. Why do you want to be a psychologist? (That's the one that can prescribe, right?)
4. What's your favorite method of burnyness?
5. Poing?
Jun. 12th, 2003 06:02 pm (UTC)
1. I would totally be my red plaid (stripes are black and light blue) flannel blanket that I've had since forever, that my brother probably gave me chicken pox through.
2. Sappy, but right now probably Chef. 'Cos if I'm close enough to take a photograph... ;)
3. Psychiatrist, but yeah. 'Cos I like to listen to people and I really like to help that lightbulb over the head light up. (Like in cartoons, when someone figures something out.)
4. Day-to-day, I like scented candles, but absolute favorite is definitely a campfire. Ooh...
5. Squee!
Jun. 9th, 2003 11:36 pm (UTC)
can I just put my hand up and ask for questions without making a comment?
Wait, I have a comment. Since when has gender stopped people from playing a role onstage? Dude, it's called drag. Live it up. :)
Jun. 10th, 2003 01:02 am (UTC)
Hell, as far as I'm concerned, anything that causes you to click on "Blow some bubbles!" constitutes a comment. So there. :P
(Oh, and I don't think they've done Les Mis in drag yet...though 'twould be interesting...)

1. What's your favorite word? Favorite being defined as the word you like to say the most, for either the sound quality or the definition, your choice.
2. What one thing do you wish you had invented, and why?
3. Pick one - no movies, no books, no music. Why?
4. What song gets stuck in your head the most frequently? Well, this week, at least.
5. What keeps you going? What keeps you from saying "screw it" to the world and hiding in a cave somewhere?

By the by, hi! :)
