01.Elaborate on your default icon.
Currently it's a green one with my name and the repeated word of 'ambleramble' in the background. Because that is what I do. I almost always use one of my name icons as my default icon, so that if my firefox icon picker extension forgets, and I forget, my default is always something recognisably me and not likely to cause offence.
02. What's your current relationship status?
03. Ever have a near-death experience?
My own or someone else's? I've never had anything too severe occur to myself, except when I was very young and almost got run over, but I don't remember that.
04. Name an obvious quality you have?
05. What's the name of the song that's stuck in your head right now?
"20th Century Boy" because it's playing. Yay for Marc Bolan and T Rex. Oh. Now it's Freda Payne's "Band of Gold".
06. Any celeb you would marry?
All the ones I would are married already. Though they're not really "celebrities". I don't really care for your typical "celebrity".
07. Who will cut and paste this first?
I don't know, as psychic as I am, I use my powers for good. Anyone who is bored and wants to do it, I suppose.
08. Name someone with the same birthday as you:
Edith Piaf apparently did.
09. Do you have a crush on someone?
Not anymore, apart from lots of lovely actor-types.
10. Have you ever vandalized someone's private property?
No. I never even wrote on desks or anything at school. I'm a square.
11. Have you ever been in a fight?
Yes. This sort of contradicts my above statement, but I was dragged in front of the Principal for beating up a boy in Year 7. In my defence, the boy deserved it, and he was much larger than me.
12. Have you ever sung in front of a large audience?
Yes, once solo - also in Year 7, and several times as part of a choir.
13. What's the first thing you notice about the OPPOSITE sex?
Eyes, usually. I'm a "give 'em eye contact" person.
14. What do you usually order from Starbucks?
One round of Leoben bashing and alcohol abuse.
15. Have you ever hurt yourself on purpose?
Punched a wall, hit my head to the desk. Yeah.
16. Say something totally random about yourself.
I'm still feeling sorrowful over Doctor Who. Say it with me; "Loz is a great big sooky-babe."
17. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?
Jez always says I remind him of Miss Piggy. I'm not sure if that's a compliment or not.
18. Do you wear a watch? What kind?
Digital, large screen. I have trouble reading analogue clocks. It takes me a fraction longer to figure out than digital. This watch glows in the dark in a really cool way when you put on the light.
19. Do you have anything pierced?
I had my ears pierced, but I hated it. They've completely healed, I think.
20. Do you have any tattoos?
No. I don't think I ever will, either.
21. Do you like pain?
You know, I ask myself that sometimes. Like when I listen to my Paul Gross cds. But no, I actually don't like pain at all.
22. Do you like to shop?
Er... I can do. If I have the money, can find what I want, yes I do. Perhaps that's a lie. I like acquiring new items, not necessarily the act of shopping. I tend to try to avoid lengthy shopping visits. I shop, apparently, "like a man". Have my budget ready, nip in and out as quickly as humanly possible.
23. What was the last thing you paid for with cash?
Movie tickets for Nick and myself for Pirates of the Caribbean 2 - Dead Man's Chest.
24. What was the last thing you paid for with a credit card?
I've never had one of my own, but I may have used Mum's to get... ahh... oh! Kids in the Hall related DVDs from Amazon. Good times. That's my kind of shopping.
25. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?
Mum, asking her to pick Nick and I up after seeing Pirates of the Caribbean 2 - Dead Man's Chest.
26. What is on your desktop background?
The same as the last time I did one of these surveys. It's one I made from a texture sansenmage posted.
27. What is the background on your cell phone?
I don't have a Mobile Phone. I wish you guys would figure that out.
28. Do you like redheads?
Yes. Though for years I didn't, because I used to get pinched by a redheaded girl called Louise throughout my early years in primary school.
29. Do you know any twins?
Online I do, yes.
30. Do you have any weird relatives?
Any? How about all? My Uncles alone would fill giant tomes created for the sole purpose of categorising "weirdness".
31. What was the last movie you watched?
Pirates of the Caribbean 2 - Dead Man's Chest... get with the program, lovey.
32. What was the last book you read?
Meg and Mog. I haven't read any books since Prac.
33. Did you or are you planning to go to college?
I go to University. I don't need to go to college.
34. What is your favorite pair of pants that you own?
35. Do you like to party?
Not really. Not in the way you probably mean.
36. Where do you see yourself in five years?
Teaching in the country, or perhaps back in metropolitan Adelaide, after having taught in the country. I'm going to be foolishly optimistic and say I'm engaged and about to embark on some travel. Yeah. I have a fantastic imagination. (Or maybe, I really am psychic. I hope so. Either way, I'm not giving up.)
