Surveys Are Stupid

Every once in a while, I fall victim to the myspace survey. Unfortunately, today was one of those days. I'm sorry.

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Usually closed. It makes me feel all orderly and grown up.

2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel?
What is this hotel you speak of? And maybe.

3. Have you ever 'done it' in a hotel room?
Depends on your definition of "it." I once called the front desk and asked for a deck of cards. I was also semi-chased by a security guard.

4. Have you ever stolen a street sign before?
No. And if you have, don't tell me.

5. Do you like to use post-it notes?
Yes. It's sad.

6. Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?
Nadine, the Coupon Queen. I had free milk on my cereal this morning, I have free All Bran bars in my cupboard, and I'll be using my free McFlurry coupon later this week, I'm sure.

7. Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of a bees?
Let's go with the bear. Go big or go home.

8.?
Sure?

9. Do you always smile for pictures?
No. Sometimes I cry.

10. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Slow (or inconsistent) walkers in a moving crowd.

11. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
The side against the wall is tucked in. My "entry" side is out.

12. Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
Only when I'm playing "What Time Is It, Mr. Wolf?"

13. Have you ever peed in the woods?
Isn't that what the woods are there for? I'm sure I have at some point in my quasi-wilderness experiences.

14. Do you ever dance even if there's no music playing?
Sure. It would be depressing if we were all dependent on music.

15. Do you chew your pens and pencils?
No. I'm not a fan of touching saliva. Even my own.

16. How many people have you slept with this week?
I think there were about 20 at the cottage. In separate sleeping bags, but still pretty cozy.

17. Do you like popcorn from those big tins?
Are the big tins free?

18. What is your "Song of the week"?
Well, I heard both an East-Asian version and trumpet-solo version of "My Heart Will Go On" this week. Oh, and "Kiss Me," which I actually quite enjoyed (the song, not the verb-- Not that I wouldn't-- Never mind).

19. Is it okay for guys to wear pink?
It's very European to wear a pink shirt with a pinstriped suit. So if you want to convince me you're sophisticated, boys, that was your fashion advice.

20. Do you still watch cartoons?
At work, all the time.

21. What’s your favorite scary movie?
I like thinking-people scary movies (M. Night Shyamalan).

Under Johnny Depp's house.

Water.

I like most food. Italian, Mexican, chocolate anything, salads with chicken...

Life is Beautiful, It's a Wonderful Life, Singin' In the Rain, Braveheart, Newsies, The Notebook, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Batman Begins, many more....

27. Last person you kissed/kissed you?
I believe my grandma kissed me goodbye two weeks ago.

28. Were you ever a boy/girl scout?
No. I was into the Pioneer Club scene.

30. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
I think I took a phone message for someone a while ago. And I signed a guest book. Quick, someone send me an address!

31. Can you change the oil on a car?
No. Can I drive a car? Now you understand.

32. Ever gotten a speeding ticket?
No. I don't walk fast enough.

33. Ran out of gas?

36. What is your usual bedtime?
I aim for 10pm.

37. Are you lazy?
Yes, but I'm motivated by it. Seriously. I will be extra efficient with my time so that I have more time to do nothing.

Lego. It's the only one.

Subtle dancing. No concussions wanted.

49. Dance in the car?
You mean streetcar? Man, this survey makes me want to get my license.

50. Ever used a gun?

66. Cheetos Or Fritos?
No preference. Where there's junk food, there must be a party...

Peanuts.

68. Ever hear of, "gorp"?
Kind of. Some version of trail mix, right? I used to call it "mixed snack."

69. Ever take dance lessons?
No, but I wish I did. I'm a little obsessed with Gene Kelly. I took hip-hop at university, but it was aerobic stuff (I would be thrown out of a club if I tried those moves).

84. Can you hold your breath w/o manually holding your nose?
Yes.

85. Are you patient?

Band. If they're good. I'd rather play a CD than hear a crappy band.

Yep.

No. I was once told I look like Tori Spelling pre-nose-and-boob job. Why would I want to mess with that? :P
