I'm probably going to take too much space to feel justified putting it all in a comment, plus I'll probably like to look back on this in later months or years, to see who I was now and all, and as a journal entry of its own it will be easier to find...
01) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
Not of the dating variety. Relationships of other sorts, sure, there are a few serious ones. Be kind of sad if there weren't, really.
02) What was your dream growing up?
As far as I'm aware, I'm not done growing up yet, except physically...
Dreams from my childhood, eh? Until I was at least seven years old I wanted to be a bird... From six years old until at least age twelve I wanted to be a witch... From ages nine to eleven I wanted to be an old-school hunter-gatherer Native American... The Jedi phase was right around twelve to fourteen... Entertained notions of piracy around thirteen... Fifteen to early seventeen was mostly devoted to evil villainy.... And for a while I've been playing with the idea of wandering the world as a vagrant or an itinerant worker. So, yeah, basically I was one of those children with ever-changing and ever-implausible career wishes.
Night dreams? Those were a bit more interesting, I think. In my flying dreams, flying was kind of like treading water - I had to keep pumping my legs a lot, and I flew in a sort of upright position, and it wasn't easy. But it was exhilarating, even if I never let myself fly very high just in case my strength failed and I had to fall back to the ground.... I used to have these weird dreams about unearthing a long-forgotten pet bird, a robin, I think it was, that was barely alive, because I had neglected it and forgotten of its existence. Similarly, another recurring dream involved my snake mysteriously bringing into existence (I'm not sure whether she gave birth to them, or what) a number of very small snakes, in different colors, that I didn't know what to do with..... The particularly bad recurring dream...I don't think I ever knew what it was, really. One moment I was goofing off with my then-best-friend, we might have been pillowfighting, the next my mother interrupts with some life-shaking news...but what that news was, I don't know. All I know is that it ended the dream with a feeling of terrible guilt - like somehow, through negligence or some tiny stupid mistake, I had caused an irreversible tragedy, and deeply hurt someone about whom I cared.
03) What talent do you wish you had?
The usual powers, like flying and that, although really I think I'd choose the difficult flying like in my dreams...No mind-reading for me, though. Whatever that power is that lets someone speak all languages. Um, vocal...things, like...imitating voices, and...singing. Metamorphing, definitely.
04) If I bought you a drink, what would it be?
Up to you, really, if you're the one buying it... Also depends on the weather, and where we are, and who you are...
05) Favorite vegetable?
Mushrooms aren't vegetables, alas.
06) What was the last book you read?
The Taming of the Shrew isn't really a book... and aside from that, it's been a long time since I've finished a book, not that I haven't been reading...
07) What zodiac sign are you?
Aries, but for whatever reason I identify as Scorpio...
08) Any tattoos and/or piercings? Explain where.
Nope. None at all.
09) Worst habit?
Sitting around with a computer on my lap all the blooming time.
10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
If I knew and liked you, and if you were going to the same place I was going... Or if you were hitchhiking and looked like a decent sort of person... If I could drive, of course.
11) What is your favorite sport?
Karate, or possibly fencing.
12) Do you have a pessimistic or optimistic attitude?
Pessimistic, for the most part.
13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
Stuck for how long? I'd be happy to engage in whatever conversation you might start, but I probably wouldn't initiate interactions.
14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?
My father not marrying his girlfriend.
