Tagged by: cariettawhite
Birthday: January 2nd.
Favorite color: Yellow.
Lucky number: 8.
Talents: I can give good warm hugs & I can wash lab glassware like a pro.
Last dream you remember: I was sitting down with these two kids who were supposed to be my future grandchildren & we were playing video games. While playing, they kept asking me about the cool “retro” games their grandpa & I played when I we were younger. They said things like “Wow, Assassin’s Creed?! That game is a classic! The graphics are terrible though.” & “YOU’RE OLDER THAN THE PLAYSTATION?!?! You must be like 100 years old!”.
Can you juggle: Nope.
Art/sports/both: I wish I could say both but I was always more of an art person. I really like playing sports though. I’m just bad at them.
Do you like writing: Yes, I do.
Do you like dancing: I love it & I am terrible at it.
Do you like singing: I adore it, but I don’t like my voice very much. I often like to sing terribly to “pretend” that I’m just pretending to be bad but, in reality, I really am bad.
Dream vacation: Puebla in the fall.
Dream guy/gal: gingerwithoutacause. I have liked him for a really long time, but I didn’t really know how I felt about it all or what to do or whether I really wanted something to actually happen between us or anything for a reeaaalllllyy long time. All I really knew was that I wanted to hangout with him whenever I could & that I wanted to make sure he was safe & happy. Even now that we’re dating, I really see him as simply my best friend. The person I can tell everything to & the one who can always cheer me up when I’m down. I get to call him lame names & hold his hand without feeling weird about it now, but nothing much has changed.
Dream wedding: I don’t really know. I love outdoor weddings, but I also love ball gown dresses. I guess I would have an indoor winter themed wedding with some Doctow Who references in the mix. For example having Dalek wedding toppers on the cake like that post I saw on Pinterest ages ago. But, a nice outdoors fall wedding sounds nice too. I want all weddings possible & I also want to attend all weddings & I just love weddings.
Dream pet: Hedgehog or ducks.
Dream job: Science teacher, science museum curator, and/or NASA Public Affairs Specialist.
Favorite song: ”Fluorescent Adolescent” by Arctic Monkeys.
Favorite album: Are You Experienced? by The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Last song you heard on the radio: “Play That Funky Music” by Wild Cherry.
Least favorite song: ”You Belong To Me” by Taylor Swift & “Girlfriend” by Avril Lavigne. Because feminine can be awesome too & bashing femininity isn’t very feminist.
Least favorite album: The Best Damn Thing by Avril Lavigne.
Least favorite artist: Avril Lavigne.
Guys/girls/both: I generally develop crushes on guys. However, I think we can all agree that girls are always 10x more attractive.
Hair color: Hm, I don’t really have a preference. I suppose dark hair, maybe. I really like curly hair though. So, dark & wavy or curly is nice.
Eye color: Brown or a dark hazel.
Humorous/serious: Definitely humorous. Always humorous. Yes. But, it would be nice if the humor wasn’t ridiculously sexist or racist or any -ist possible, because that’s just not gonna fly with me.
Taller/shorter: I used to pine for taller, but I really don’t care anymore. Wonderboy is an inch taller than me so I guess we’re good there. Meh.
Biggest turn-off: Ridiculously sexist/racist/insensitive humor & manipulative behavior.
Biggest turn-on: Tickling, cuddles, giggling, warm hugs, & calling me a “magical cutie”.
I tag victoriazee, gingerwithoutacause, dabogirly, qisforquaesitosaurus, llytix, & 051124324315.
