Memetime: House of the Rising Meme

I don't remember who posted this originally that I cribbed it from. I like it.. I did it. You can too if you wish.

-me

(Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

I miss somebody right now. I don't watch much TV these days.  (Comparitively speaking to longer ago when I watched far too much) I own lots of books.  (Despte my lack of reading fiction... I own a ton of books. Some fiction, many reference.)
I wear glasses or contact lenses.  (And even after lasek. I am 20-35... Which as I was 20-5000+ before... I'm really not minding) × I love to play video games(Unless it's a game that makes me think... it really doesn't do a lot for me.) I've tried marijuana.  (But I didn't exhale)
I've watched porn movies.  (If this comes as a surprise to anyone... Granted... Unless they hit specific interests... this too is similar to a video game.) I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship.  (Personally, I don't think one socially matures into a realationship until about 50.) I believe honesty is usually the best policy.  (And this was a long lesson to learn.)
× I curse sometimes.  (My father was from Brooklyn. I curse a lot.) I have changed a lot mentally over the last year.  (Part of who I am is challenging myself to refine who I am. I am a work in progress.) × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.  (And my sword is too heavy and unweildy. Though, if you ever visit. Ask me about Butterflies)
* * * * *
× I have broken someone's bones. I have a secret that I am ashamed to reveal. I hate the rain.  (Furry people hate wet. (Note: That is people of fur, not furries. I have fur, I am not a 'furry'))
× I'm paranoid at times.  (Much like cursing sometimes... I am going to uncheck this one. This is a constant state for me. This is something I live with that I acknowledge and work through all the time.) × I would get plastic surgery if it were 100% safe, free of cost, and scar-free. I need/want money right now.  (I don't think I ever need money. But I'm more than happy to desire more. There are loads of things you can do with cash.)
I love sushi.  (I think I could live on the stuff ;)) × I talk really, really fast.  (I can take really, really fast. I can also choose to speak very clearly.) × I have fresh breath in the morning.  (Well, unless you are defining fresh in the way your mother did before she punsihed you.)
I have long hair.  (Oh, yeah. And when it's sraightened you can tell just how long it is.) I have lost money in Las Vegas.  (And one day I will cease doing that.) I have at least one sibling.  (Which I will not elaborate on. I'm in a fraternal order now. I have many brothers and sisters now.)
× I was born in a country outside of the U.S. I have worn fake hair/fingernails/eyelashes in the past.  (I was a single, balding software engineer in L.A. That meant I had disposable cash and a superficial need to look pretty. I got better... Now I'm better with how I look.) I couldn't survive without Caller I.D.  ((sings) We screen. Zoom in on the answering machine.... Speak)
× I like the way that I look.  (better, not great. See fake hair above.) × I have lied to a good friend in the last 6 months. × I am usually pessimistic(Glass half full of half empty? I'm the one trying to figure out how to smash it to a million pieces.)
× I have a lot of mood swings. I think prostitution should be legalized.  (I think consentual crime is a contradiction in terms.) I slept with a roommate.  (Dunno if this counts. She was dating me and we got a lease together)
I have a hidden talent.  (Which will remain hidden) × I'm always hyper no matter how much sugar I have. × I have a lot of friends(I have a lot of acquaintences. the friends I have are lasting, tight, real, and dependable. Quality, not quantity.)
I have pecked someone of the same sex. × I enjoy talking on the phone.   (I actually really don't do well at this. And I have a great phone voice. It's primarily the fact that I am easily distracted and phone give little sensory load to hold my focus.) × I practically live in sweatpants or PJ pants.  (Leather vest all the way.)
I love to shop and/or window shop.  (Typically, Yes. On occassion, no. And yes... I will tell you, "No, the dress doesn't make you look fat, your ass being 2 miles wide makes you look fat, the dress just highlights it in a way that FoxNews wouldn't even cover.) I'm obsessed with my Xanga or Livejournal.  (Obsession is sucha strong word. I like strong words. My obsession runs deeper than posting and reading. I write code.) I'm completely embarrassed to be seen with my mother.  (The next time you are likely to see me with my mother is at her competancy hearing.)
I have a mobile phone.  (I like tech. I'm good at tech. mwahahaha) × I have passed out drunk in the past 6 months.  (I haven't passed out drunk in the last 15 years. Granted that was the only time) I've rejected someone before.  (And am getting better at it.)
I currently like/love someone.  (someone(s)... Though to be honest. I often fight the urge to like someone. For some reason it creates a wave of "Back away, he likes you" which daunts the whole process.) × I have no idea what I want to do for the rest of my life.  (Oh, I know what I want to do. This sort of falls back on the whole "Wants money" thing in order to fulfil.) I want to have children in the future.  (With the loving woman sleping next to me at 32 weeks 5 days of pregnancy; I damn well better)
× I have changed a diaper before.  (Aiiiiigh) × I've called the cops on a friend before.  (I've called on a friend who was a cop before?) × I'm not allergic to anything.  (Bwa ha ha ha ha ha... A ha ha haha.. hahahah..hee hee heee hoo ooo hhohoho a ha haha ha. heh)
I have a lot to learn.  (Yet, oh aspirant, let thy victories bring thee not Vanity, for with increase of Knowledge should come increase of Wisdom. He who knoweth little, thinketh he knoweth much; but he who knoweth much hath learned his own ignorance. Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool, than of him. Liber Librae, #5) I am shy around the opposite sex.  (See daunting the process under like/love above) I'm online 24/7, even as an away message.  (I can be reached 24/7 about 99.9% of the time.)
I have at least 5 away messages saved.  (Yeah, well.) I have tried alcohol or drugs before.  (Horrors! And I actually understand moderation.) I have made a move on a friend's significant other or crush in the past.  (Ain't poly wonderful sometimes.)
I own the "South Park" movie.  (It's a musical. Of course I bought it.) I have avoided assignments at work/school to be on Xanga or Livejournal.  (I have avoided chores at home with Livejournal. Granted, I still finish tasks put before me.) I enjoy some country music.  (I think I can count the number of songs on a wood shop teachers off hand.)
I would die for my best friends.  (See quality, not quantity. You never want to hear the following words from me, "You made girl cry.") × I'm obsessive, and often a perfectionist. × I have used my sexuality to advance my career.  (see allergic above.)
× I think Halloween is awesome because you get free candy. I have dated a close friend's ex.  (See friend's significant other above.) I am happy at this moment.  (I have a mild case of the creeping crud.. But I'm of good spirits.)

I study for tests most of the time.  (More so than I used to.) × I tie my shoelaces differently from anyone I've ever met. I can work on a car.  (I'm going to take this one on the technicality. I can infact park myself on the roof of a car with my laptop and get work done :))
I love my job(s).  (I love what I do right now. there are things I would love more and things I would love less. But right now is a good place.) I am comfortable with who I am right now.  (But I am always looking to improve.) × I have more than just my ears pierced.
I walk barefoot wherever I can.  (Those who know me... get it. Those who humour me... make me happy.) × I have jumped off a bridge. × I love sea turtles.
× I spend ridiculous amounts of money on makeup. I plan on achieving a major goal/dream.  (Oh, yes... It shall come to pass.) × I am proficient on a musical instrument.
I hate office jobs.  (Depsite loving my job(s)... I hate working in a cube.) I went to college out of state.  (I have only lived in Washington a year. I've done most things out of state. Now granted, this is probably referring to 'not the state where mom and dad were'.. and in fact... still yes.) × I am adopted.
× I am a pyro.   (Used to be.) × I have thrown up from crying too much.  (This is just hard to picture... And kinda gross. So I won't even try.) I have been intentionally hurt by people that I loved.  (Just because you're paranoid.. doesn't mean they aren't always out to get you.)
× I fall for the worst people.  (I seem to have improved and this is no longer the case.) I adore bright colours.  (I won't wear them.. but I adore them.) × I usually like covers better than originals.   (Not usually, but there are some. I tend to like Doors covers better than the original.)

I have ridden/owned a horse.  (Ridden. Once as a kid. It took off like a shot dragging me under trees. No real physical damange. Never ridden one since.) I still have every journal I've ever written in.  (both of them.) × I talk in my sleep.  (Only for effect.)
I've often thought that I was born in the wrong century.  (Just can't tell if it's 400 to early or 400 too late.) I try to forget things by drowning them out with loads of distractions.  (No try involved. It just happens) × I wear a toe ring(I've thought about it.)
× I have a tattoo(No comment) I can't stand at LEAST one person that I work with.  (Yeah, this seems to be a constant. I refer to it as the "FrankBurns" factor. There's always one.) I am a caffeine junkie.  (IV DRIP! STAT!)
× I am completely tree-huggy spiritual, and I'm not ashamed at all. × If I knew I would get away with it, I would commit at least one murder(no) I will collect anything, and the more nonsensical, the better.  (Much to my pack-rat partner's chagrin.)
× I enjoy a nice glass of wine with dinner. I'm an artist.  (And though I don't paint, sculpt, mold, or etch... few would argue this statement.) I am ambidextrous.  (On most things except writing. I am favoured to the right.)
× I sleep with so many stuffed animals, I can hardly fit on my bed. × If it weren't for having to see other people naked, I'd live in a nudist colony. I have terrible teeth.  (What... you think I didn't know?)
I hate my toes.  (And I'd know better than most) I did this meme even though I wasn't tagged by the person who took it before me.  (yup) I have more friends on the internet than in real life.  (I have more acquiaintances on the internet than in real life. My friends are a subset of my acquaintences.)
I have lived in either three different states or countries.  (6 states, I believe) × I am extremely flexible. I love hugs more than kisses.  (This could be the topic of a long S&F post. But won't be.)
I want to own my own business.  (I do own my own business. We just don't make any money... yet.) × I smoke. I spend way too much time on the computer than on anything else.  (Well, yeah.)
Nobody has ever said I'm normal.  (I honestly have never had anyone pronounce me as normal beyond trying to be funny. Which is odd because I do consider myself normal albeit unique.) × Sad movies, games, and the like can cause a trickle of tears every now and then.  (Choked up maybe. Tears... almost never.) × I am proficient in the use of many types of firearms and combat weapons.
I like the way women look in stylized men's suits.  (There was this production of "My Fair Lady" in High School. Her name was Stevie. She snuck to the costume room and put on my tux for a photo. Oh....MY god.) I don't like it when people are unpleased or seem unpleased with me.  (Yeah well.) I have been described as a dreamer or likely to have my head up in the clouds.  (And it's really okay there.)
I have played strip poker with someone else before.  (What? How do you think I got started on this whole Hold'em thing?) I have had emotional problems for which I have sought professional help.  (And I am far better than I was 10 years ago.) I believe in ghosts and the paranormal.  (As for what I believe... I'm not telling.)
I can't stand being alone.  (Yeah, well. That's me. I am bad at being alone. I try compensating. It often makes it far worse.) I have at least one obsession at any given time.  (at least. usually multiple.) × I weigh myself, pee/poo, and then weigh myself again.
× I consistently spend way too much money on obsessions-of-the-moment.  (I actually don't think it's ever, "Too much") × I'm a judgmental asshole. × I'm a HUGE drama-queen.
I have travelled on more than one continent.  (Lived in Holland for a summer) × I sometimes wish my father would just disappear. I need people to tell me I'm good at something in order to feel that I am.  (Validation helps. I know it shouldn't.. but, there you are.)
I am a Libertarian.  (In some ways. See Democrat and Rebublican(sic) above.) I can speak more than one language.  (Competancy... that's another issue.) I can fall asleep even if the whole room is as noisy as it can be.  (I often wonder if it is narcolepsy.)
× I would rather read than watch TV. I like reading fact more than fiction.  (O'Reilley pwns me.) I have pulled an all-nighter on an assignment I was given a month to do.  (And the code is sooooo much sweeter.)
× I have no piercings. I have spent the night in a train station or other public place.  (It's a really wierd story.) I have been so upset over my physical gender that I cried.  (Better now.)
× I once spent Christmas completely alone because there was a miscommunication on which parent was supposed to have me that night. There have been times when I have wondered "Why was I born?" and may/may not have cried over it.  (My family took the fun out of dysfunctional) × I like most animals better than most people.
× I own a collection of retro games consoles(Game consoles? No. Apple ][ hardware... Oh ,yeah.) The thought of physical exercise makes me shiver.  (And I really wish it didn't.) × I have hit someone with a dead fish.
× I am compulsively honest. I was born with a congenital birth defect that has never been repaired.  (Aparently... it is fatal. I'm told I'm going to die one day and there's nothing I can do about it.) I have danced topless in front of dozens of complete strangers.  (Yeah... it's probably best that you missed it.)
× I have gone from wishing I was a girl to revelling in being a boy to feeling like a girl again in the span of five minutes, and not cared a whit for my actual sex. × I am unashamedly bisexual, and have different motivations for my desires for different genders. I sometimes won't sleep a whole night or eat a whole day because I forget to.  (Easily distractable.)
× I find it impossible to get to sleep without some kind of music on. I dislike milk.  (I didn't used to. But to be fair... milk disliked me first.) × I obsessively wash my hands.
I always carry something significant around with me.  (yeah.) Sometimes I'd rather wear a wig in day-to-day life than use my own hair.  (Sometimes. I'm getting better) I've pushed myself to become more self-aware and thereby more aware of others.  (This is a major piece of my life.)
× Even though I live on my own I still cry sometimes because I miss my mother(See Allergic above) I hand wrote all the HTML tags in this document.  (Roll the sleeves up coder. That's me.) I've liked something which a majority of people claimed was either bad or weird.  (Oh darn. Guess I am an individual)
× I have been clinically dead for a brief period of time. Instead of feeling sympathy/empathy with people and their problems, I simply become annoyed.  (One will slowly degenerate into the other over time if the person doesn't take care of themselves.) × I participate/have participated in auto drag races and won.
× I do not 'get' most comedy acts. I don't think strippers are money-greedy or slutty for dancing.  (Personally, I think if society would stop treating it as such a horrible thing, the class would come up and there wouldn't be such a horrible drug or economic problem.) × I don't like to chew gum.
× I am obsessed with history/historical things and can't wait for someone to build a time machine so I can be the first to use it. × I can never remember for the life of me where I parked the car. I had the TEEN ANGST thing going for at least 2-3 years.  (Anyone who says "High School was the best years of your life" should be shot.)
I wish people would be more empathic and honest with each other.  (I can hope.) × I play Dungeons and Dragons weekly. I love to sing.  (I just wish I had more faith in my voice.)
× I want to live in my mother's basement when I grow up.  (AAAAAAAAAGGGGGHHHHHH) × I have a custom-built computer(Hardware, no. Software... Oh yeah.) I want to create a certain someone's babies, even though there's a 0% possiblity of ever achieving it.  (If I put the list here, I can think of at least 20 people who'd never speak to me again.)
× I would be in a relationship with one of my pets if they were human. I've gone skinny-dipping.  (Boys, there's a time an a place for everything and it's called college.) I've performed in three plays.  (I've performed in 30 plays. Maybe even 50.)
× I enjoy burritos. × I'm Irish and loving it. I have a thing for redheads.  (Oh, how I'd forgotten that.)
× I am a twin! Most of the times, I'd rather do something intellectual instead of doing something generically 'fun'.  (yup.) × Once I set out to finish something, I always stay at it until it is completed before I move on to something else.
I wish there were a way to erase past mistakes.  (Not many.. but a few. And in such a way that it wouldn't affect where I am no.) × I sleep more than 12 hours a day. I wish I could be prouder of what I've accomplished, but it's never enough.  (yup.)
I need more time to myself.  (Though I'm bad at being alone.) I wish I was more open-minded.  (I curse my own close mindedness at times.) I hope that I go really prematurely grey.  (I'm going for that kill bill 2, long oriental beard thingee :))
I download songs from the internet.  (Legally of course ;)) × I've just reenacted chapter 58 of Death Note with my best friend. I say random things to freak people out.  (What? You mean you haven't ever critiqued the way that tobacco on a vole's back makes him squeak like a 13 year old girl watching American Idol?)
× I'm still a little mad about the ending of Death Note. I love playing Truth or Dare.  (Just never get the chance.) × I love listening to slow music, but I hate singing to it.  (In the words of Willy Wonka, "Strike that... reverse it")
× Music helps me remember that I am not alone. × Playing my favorite sport makes me temporarily forget my problems. I think this survey is particularly long.  (But nonetheless, entertaining.)
× I prefer my LJ friends to my real-life ones.  (Not really possible.) × I can only hate someone that I love. × I've ordered an extra two shots of espresso to an Americano at Starbucks.
