1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."

2. I will respond by asking you five questions of a very intimate and creepily personal nature. Or not so creepy/personal.

3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

My answers then...

1. What five things would a boy/girl friend have to possess to make you interested in them?

Well, first of all, they’d need to be able to carry out a decent conversation. It’s a thing some people take for granted, but it’s much more important than you realize. I absolutely love talking with people.
Second, even if they’re not Marx-brother funny, they need to appreciate and be able to understand humour. People who constantly tell you your jokes aren’t funny are so annoying.
Third on the shopping list is a smile. If a guy or a girl won’t smile it creeps me out on some level and I always end up feeling really uncomfortable.
Fourth if it’s a he, then he has to treat waitresses nicely. Otherwise you know you’re in trouble. The same thing for women, but not to the same degree.
And I can’t think of a fifth at the moment. I suppose that changes depending on my pet peeve of the day. Ooooh, right. If you chew with your mouth open then I’m going to find any way possible to avoid never having to eat with you EVER again, much less date you. It’s a thing.

2. For that matter, would you prefer a boyfriend or girlfriend?

This is an incredibly weird answer, but I’ll give it my best shot:
I’m DEFINITELY interested in boys. I like them very much, thank you, and have since I was younger. All my crushes on movie stars on men, and for the most part, RL ones too. For the most part I’m effectively straight. And then every once in a while I meet a girl who I look at (no, that’s wrong. It’s not looks, I’ve never really cared about that in a partner) or talk to, rather, and suddenly realize ‘holy SHIT. If she grabbed me right now and kissed me I would be so far from unhappy it isn’t even funny’ and I end up practically short of breath. It hasn’t happened in about six months or so, and if I had to choose between a boyfriend and a girlfriend I’d pick a boy… but when the possibility, for whatever reason, is there, then damn. So I wouldn’t say no to either, though I’m comfortably single at the moment.

3. If you could give a dinner party for any people, alive or dead, famous or not, which six people would you invite?

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle because Holmes was the second literary character I ever had a crush on and I greatly respect a man who can believe so devoutly in the spiritual and write such a scientific character. Emily Dickinson because I love her poetry, I love her life story, and her brilliance shining even through the seclusion of her adult life is incredible. William Shakespeare, or whoever wrote the texts attributed to him because, well, do I need to even say the reason? God damn, I need a few more who aren’t authors……… erm, Marlon Brando because he’s an insanely good actor who pushed the edge of the proverbial envelope and continued to do so for a very long time. Winston Churchill because he’s my favourite politician ever and I’d just be honoured to be in his presence, and Joan of Arc as the single bravest woman I’ve ever dreamed about knowing, and as a powerful personality and military leader.

4. What one thing would you most like to achieve in your life?

I’d like to keep on acting. More than that, I’d like to get into a comfortable life and be able to act. Though it hasn’t been looked at, there’s a big chance I’m manic depressive (on my mothers side of the family, there are three people who AREN’T, from a sampling of two parents and their five children, so I don’t want to put myself in a situation as unstable as acting because it’s painfully easy to fail as an actress in Canada. I would, however, like to find the balance and be able to keep up with it in my spare time.

5. What's your greatest pleasure?

This is going to sound weird but I have a cat who comes running when I cry, I’ve had her so long. So perhaps not the greatest pleasure but the place and moment where I’m happiest is sitting on the dock of my cottage, on the edge of the lake, with the cat in my arms (she comes up to the cottage with us and has been for the twelve years I’ve had her) in the early morning with a mug of coffee or hot chocolate.

This is like, a double meme.


Concrit. Stop by if you think I'm doing anything wrong you've wanted to talk to me about for pointed_spoon, _to_the_bone, underwater_owl or not_a_wizard.

If you're rational/nice about it I might even listen!


The Question Game. Any question, personal, happy, embarassing, sexual, pointless, whatever. Comments screened and anony-enabled so no need to be embarassed.

This is how painfully bored I am.

20 years ago I was: A twinkle in my fathers eye? Eeeeeeeeeew.

15 years ago I was: Toddling about cheerfully, getting into trouble. With a thing for climbing, a thing for playing in water, and a tendancy to get knocked over by rainbow trout. I swear to god, those things hurt like a BITCH.

10 years ago I was: Making friends with my Bgee. In my first French School. Little and skinny with big brown eyes and curly curly hair. A complete tattle tale and know it all.

5 years ago I was: In my first all girls school. Marginally less of a tattle tale. A little bit of a know-it-all. A little bit of a rebel. Insecure at being in my first environment where I wasn't one of the smartest.

1 year ago I was: Better off than I am now. Putting on the school play. Planning to do IB. *barf* 30 pounds heavier. Exercising more often, but eating less heavily.

3 months ago I was: Flipping. The fuck. Out. A really bad psychological place. First time I learned my dad was into drugs. Time of year he became suicidal, first time I found out. Stressed out. Borderline anorexic. Constantly bursting into tears. Really, really sick because of the anorexia.

Yesterday I was: being sick with a sore throat. Depressed at the screaminess of my parents. On Milliways.

5 snacks I enjoy: chips, celery, baba ghanouj, chocolate, any and all fruit
