So anyway, another day, another chance not to fuck it all up - so here is some slightly random survey from mhw
Do you like having your picture taken?
More than I used to, but I still want to be able to censor the results.
If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
Teothuacan. Cos I don't think they let people go there anymore.
Have you ever done crossword puzzles?
Only easy ones. I do the Guardian quick crossword at work, which is really too easy, and the Big Issue quick one which is often quite hard. The only cryptic I ever attempt is the Metro's, which is just about easy enough for me.
Pick up the closest book and write a sentence at random from it:
"I know that most people want the short uninteresting answer rather than the long interesting one, so I try to remember that when they ask me questions that could have long answers if they only understood them."
Do the same with a lyric from either a cd or the radio:
"All I ask is to live each moment free from the last"
Have you ever tried to analyze your own dreams?
All the time, it's not hard - my subconscious is very obvious...
Can you sing?
Only very badly.
Do you ever sing to yourself while doing everyday tasks?
If no-one is around, yeah.
What's your favorite color of post-it note?
Have you ever lied to get off the phone or out of talking to someone on line?
Yes, but these days I tend to just say "I have to go now", rather than making up an excuse.
Is your vcr flashing 12:00 all the time?
No, but I can't be arsed setting the clock on the microwave.
Do you read your horoscope?
Sometimes, but I try to avoid it, and when I accidentally do I make sure to read all of them, just to avoid thinking it means anything.
Would you rather chew gum or use mouthwash and why?
Gum, although I don't see them as equivalent.
How many times a year about are you sick?
I'm mostly pretty healthy, except for stress and depression.
Ever been in an airplane?
Quite a few times in the last few years, but I've recently sworn not to catch internal flights anymore.
What radio station do you listen to most?
I hardly ever listen to the radio.
Do you know how to play dominoes?
You line them up and knock them down, don't you?
What color are your eyes?
How many surveys have you filled out this lifetime?
Many. I always used to like them ,even before I was online I used to do psychology quizzes out of books and lie in wait for market research people. I'm weird like that.
Name one person your life is made better by:
Can you do math with ease?
I'm fine with everyday stuff, and a bit of geometry etc, but I never got the hang of anything past matrices.

Nope. I was for a few years, but it didn't ever feel like me.
How about an aspiring actor/actress:
I gave up on that idea at the age of 12.
Which movie can you watch and say the lines along with the actors?
None, I think. Well, maybe Rocky Horror, some of it.
Name one of your passions in life.
Organising things right, which is just sad, really.
What's your least favorite time of day?
Morning before it's light if I have to get up. Or the early hours if I have insomnia.
What color is the inside of your head when you close your eyes?
Very, very dark green, like trees by the side of the road in the dark.
Ever listen to classical music?
Not often, if you mean real classical, but I listen to Philip Glass and Michael Nyman and Arvo Part.
Have you ever said 'lol' in real life without thinking about it?
*shudder*. I don't think I've even said it online, ever.
What is the best present you've ever given someone else?
I don't know, the things that I think are good presents may not seem to be to other people. Maybe the corsetI got Paul.
What is the best present someone else has ever given to you?
My phone, without a doubt.
Do you wear a watch?
Yes, but it often bugs me so I have to take it off.

Er, "bloody hell she was old?" I don't know really, sometimes I think it would be better to be forgotten.
Describe the ideal superpower and what you would do if you had it.

Name something you've done in the last 24 hours no matter how big or small:
Bought a corset.

Piercing jewelry that I never take out. Plus sometimes necklaces and bracelets. I find rings too annoying even though I like them.

If I could just be suddenly good at it I'd like to play drums for Beltaine.
What is the worst thing anyone could ever do to you?
If you're talking about likely things, rather than murder and torture and stuff, probably turn on me with sudden hatred and viciousness. It's happened a couple of times in my life, and it makes me suicidal every time.

Describe how you sleep:
Naked, badly, with my cuddly triceratops, on my back.
