randomness

This meme, courtesy of Sonnjea B, is appearing because I am experiencing both boredom and lack of inspiration. Feel free to steal the meme if you so desire.


When was the last time you shaved? Is this honestly something people need to know? However, I am doing a completely random meme about stuff you probably didn't want to know anyway, so if you must know, it was last night.
What were you doing this morning at 8AM? Sleeping. But not for long.
What were you doing 15 minutes ago? Surfing blogs. And YouTube. And Wikipedia.
Are you any good at math? Eh. I guess I'm ok at stuff like advanced algebra and some trig. But that says nothing for torturous hours of study and headache. Maybe I'm good at math. Math is not good for me.
Your prom night, what do you remember about it? I've never been to prom. I was going to go my senior year, but it turned out prom was on the night of Pascha, the late-night Easter celebration in the Orthodox Christian church, and I wouldn't have skipped that service for anything. But I went to breakfast at my friends' house at 3 in the morning after a glorious Easter service and feast...it was a wonderful night, although it didn't involve prom, really.
Do you have any famous ancestors? Nada. That I know of, anyway.
Do you know the words to the song on your MySpace profile? MySpace kind of creeps me out. I don't have one, don't want one, and consequently don't have a song to memorise.
Last thing received in the mail? A reminder for our residence hall's all-hall "sleepover".
How many different beverages have you had today? Lessee...chocolate milk and water. But tangerine-grapefruit juice is starting to sound really good...
Do you ever leave messages on people’s answering machine? I have been known to do this. However, I prefer face-to-face confrontations...eh, conversations.
Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach? Beach? What's that? Living in the Midwest, the closes thing to a beach I visit on a regular basis is a fishing reservoir... If I write anything in the sand it's random squiggles or other people's names.
What's the most painful dental procedure you’ve had? Hmm. I had my wisdom teeth pulled recently, but surprisingly, it was nearly painless. The most painful dental experience was when I had braces, and the hygeinist tried to remove a band from one of my back teeth. It was on too tight, and they pulled and pulled, and that band would not come off. My mouth hurt from so much prodding around with those pliers-like things, and my head was even jerked up from the chair. The band never came out, in case you were wondering. They removed it several months later when my braces came off.
What is out your back door? We have a lot of doors, but the technical "back" door to our dorm opens towards another dorm and dining centre...a street...a parking lot...sycamore and pine trees. And lots of really friendly squirrels.
Any plans for Friday night? Too far into the future for me to see. I'll let you know...Friday night.
Do you like what the ocean does to your hair? Again, beach? Ocean? I wouldn't know...
Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different popcorns? Yes. Unfortunately, I don't eat popcorn.
Have you ever been to a planetarium? I don't think so. But if I did, I think I would be bitter now that we only have 8 official planets. But not so bitter that I couldn't enjoy it.
Do you re-use towels after you shower? Yep. I'm paying for laundry services out of a tiny jar of quarters...I like to keep that jar as full as possible while maintaining a sane level of clean laundry.
Some things you are excited about? Yosakoi! And Japanese culture...my friends here...anthropology...learning new things...Word Cup soccer...travel...writing...life in general
What is your favourite flavor of JELL-O? I think if you blindfolded me and fed me different types of Jell-O, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between flavours. So maybe a better question is 'What is your favourite colour of Jell-O?'. That would have to be something in the red category. I like to think I'm eating something berry-flavoured.
Describe your keychain(s)? About that...I don't have one. Which might be the reason I so often lose my keys in the bottom of my jumbled-up purse...
Where do you keep your change? In my billfold. And my laundry jar. And my random-pennies-for-charity bag.
When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people? High school speech class. It was a tribute speech for Red Cross volunteers.
What kind of winter coat do you own? A red and white coat-inside-a-coat with a broken zipper.
What was the weather like on your graduation day? Warm and sunny. Perfect spring day.
Do you sleep with the door to your room open or closed? Always closed.

I like your blog, too. I find your British spelling (realise, memorise, centre, colour, etc) and participation in a Japanese dance club (Yosakoi) while attending an American university intriguing and refreshingly broad-minded ... especially considering the reaction of your classmates at the Hispanic presentation.
