Fun little quiz

"Ganked" from librarygal, sh1mm3r, and hellokitty138

x. If you could have plastic surgery, what would you have done?
I wouldn't mind getting rid of the love handles.

x. Do you have a completely irrational fear?
WHY?  WHAT ARE YOU ASKING THAT FOR???
I don't love heights or dogs, but I can usually deal with them.  I occasionally worry about demons.

x. What is the little physical habit that gives away your insecure moment?
I chew on my fingers.  Not just my fingernails, but also the tips of my fingers.  I know, gross.

x. Are you a pyromaniac?
I could be.  Fire is kinda cool.

x. Do you have too many love interests?
One too many, apparently.  Of course, there was only one.

x. Do you know anyone famous?
I knew Carisa Dahlbo in high school, she starred in "Swans Crossing" with Sarah Michelle Gellar.  The only other thing IMDb says she's done is a McDonald's commercial, so I guess she's taking the long route to the path of fame.

x. Describe your bed.
Frame, box springs, dark wood headboard, mattress, marroon sheets, and the ultimate - a "tiger" blanket!  Awesome!

x. Spontaneous or planned?
Planned, hopefully with elements of spontaneity.

x. Do you know how to play poker?
Yes, but not well.

x. What do you carry with you at all times?
Wallet, Palm Pilot, tissue, pen, spare change.

x. What do you miss most about being little?
Running at my dad and being tossed in the air.

x. Are you happy with your given name?
Yes.  I prefer the "V" version to "PH".

x. How much money would it take to get you to give up the Internet for one year?
One million dollars! *Dr. Evil voice*

x. What's one thing you wish you could do but can't?
Be a little taller.

x. Which musical instrument do you wish you could play?
The violin.  I can play the trumpet, though.

x. Favorite fabric?
Denim?  I don't know, I wear that the most often.  Cotton is always good, I suppose.

x. What's the one language you want to learn?
Spanish.  Again.

x. What do you order at a bar?
A beer, usually Killian's or maybe Coors.

x. Have you ever pierced your body parts?
No.  I have been sliced open for surgery, though.  That's sexy, right?

x. Do you drive stick?
Alas, no.  I really need to learn!

x. What's one trait you hate in a person?
Hypocrisy.  Probably why I don't get along with my brother, because each of us thinks the other one is just that.

x. What kind of watch do you wear?
Casio, dual time and water resistent.

x. Most frivolous purchase?
Upgrading to a paid account with Live Journal.

x. Do you consider yourself materialistic?
Yeah, I like my stuff.  Could I live without it?  Sure.  Would I want to?  Heck, no!

x. What do you cook the best?
Hamburger Magic.  Not Hamburger Helper, that's more expensive!

x. Favorite writing instrument?
Bic pens, blue.

x. Do you prefer to stand out or blend in?
I think everyone would laugh if they read "blend in" here, so I'm going to say "Stand out."

x. What kind of books do you like to read?
Sci-fi, fantasy, biographies, historical fiction.  I'm big into "counterfactual history" at the moment - what if?

x. If you won the lottery, what would you do?
Laugh hysterically.  I would then give some to church, my parents, friends in need, and get the library at IUPUI named for me.  Then, I would pay off my debts, buy an RV, travel the country, and head overseas once I explored all 50 states.

x. What's one thing you're a sore loser at?
Video games.  I can get pretty vocal, as AirMan and squealnakedcatj can attest!

x. If you don't like a person, how do you show it?
Speak in short, clipped sentences to them and avoid looking them in the eye.

x. Do you cry in front of friends?
The metaphorical kind, yes.  I'm always posting my feelings here on LJ!  As for actual tears, only a select few have had that pleasure.

x. Favorite communication method?
I've been trying to get all my friends to sign up for LJ, so I suppose this is it.  E-mail and phone are both great as well, obviously.

x. What's the most painful experience you've ever had?
Physical - recovering from surgery
Mental - trying to finish SLIS
Emotional - either getting trashed by my brother in Texas, or getting totally rejected by a girl I liked in Ft Wayne.

HAve you read the Alvin Maker series by Orson Scott Card? It's alternative history - sort of. It's set in an alternative American colonies. The first book is called Seventh SOn if you haven't and want to check them out.

Thanks for the tip! I just put it on reserve with IMCPL, so hopefully it will come in soon.

Dad's been reading the Harry Turtledove books recently. From what he's been telling me about Return Engagement, sometime previous to the events in this book the South, either through war or diplomacy, became their own country. Now, they're launching an offensive against the North by taking over Ohio to split the nation in half. Weird. :-)
