Taken from a number of people.

1. What time did you get up this morning?

2. How do you like your steak?
Medium-well--just this side of done.

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
Insidious, over the summer. It was dumb.

4. What is your favorite TV show.
Possibly Queer as Folk. Possibly Sherlock or Downton Abbey. I like dumb cop shows like Criminal Minds, when I I'm feel particularly lazy...it's hard to say, then.

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
Either where I am--close to friends--or Philadelphia.

6. What did you have for breakfast?
A mango fruit smoothie

7. What is your favorite cuisine?
That's very hard to say. Depends on my mood.

8. What foods do you dislike?
I'm very picky about seafood; I don't like deep-sea fish or shellfish, squid has a funny texture, and I won't eat anything that looks like it did when it was alive. (crab and lobster, mainly.)

9. Favorite place to eat?
The couch.

10. Favorite dressing?
One that I make myself, from white wine vinegar and dijon.

11. What kind of vehicle do you drive?

12. What are your favorite clothes?
Coats and scarves. Winter wear in general.

13. Where would you visit if you had the chance?
Germany, Greece, Italy...anywhere in Europe. If I could only choose one, it would be either Munich or Delphi.

14. Cup ½ empty or ½ full?
Who knows? I'm a skepticist.

15. Where would you want to retire?
A house outside of a large city, probably on the East Coast.

16. Favorite time of day?
Evening, after I've gotten all my work done.

17. Where were you born?

18. What is your favorite sport to watch?
Um...figure skating, I'd say. It's what I make a point to watch in the Olympics.

19. Dogs or cats?
Cats. I have a childhood fear of dogs.

20. Phobias?
Tornadoes, despite never having seen one before. And heights. I'm a total wuss about things like Ferris wheels.

21. Hot weather or cold?
Whatever it isn't at the time.

22. Bird watcher?
More like a bird-noticer. I see them when others don't, and have a compulsive need to know what it is I'm seeing.

23. Are you a morning person or a night person?
Morning; once I hit 2 pm, I'm ready to sleep again, and at night I totally don't feel like doing anything at all.

24. Do you have any pets?
Since I still half-live with my parents, a cat. I want one of my own, but I don't have the resources to hare for it.

25. Any new and exciting news you’d like to share?
Not really. I like my routine life.

26. What did you want to be when you were little?
A lot of things. Most of them were what every kid wanted to be.

27. What is your best childhood memory?
I don't have many childhood memories, oddly enough.

28. Do you have a good memory?
I've managed to hold many embarrassing memories. I do remember one birthday party, though, with my favorite dress as a kid.

29. Are you married?
No.  Someday, probably. But no.

30. Always wear your seat belt?
We now get fined for not doing so. And anyway, it makes me nervous not to, anyway.

31. Been in a car accident?
Yeah, a couple times. Once was on the highway, and it was scary as shit.

32. Any pet peeves?
Too many to name. None that I can think of offhand.

33. Favorite pizza toppings?
I like Hawaiian pizza, actually--ham and pineapple.

34. Favorite flower?
Peonies. White peonies. I love flowers, though.

35. Favorite ice cream?
Dublin Mudslide--y'know, the Ben & Jerry's kind with the liqueur.

36. Favorite fast food restaurant?
I don't like fast food. I know, I'm lame.

37. How many times did you fail your driver’s test?
Never. I only got one point!

38. From whom did you get your last email?
Sadly enough, from aaa_mazing. I say sadly, because she remembers the last time we emailed. I'm a lonely person.

39. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card?
Macy's. Power shoes, beautiful clothes, nice kitchenware.

40. Do anything spontaneous lately?
I don't do things spontaneously. Really. I plan everything I do and say very carefully.

41. Like your job?
If you call being a student a job. As for working at the Pancake House over the summer, no. The service industry sucks.

42. Broccoli?
Depends. Not raw or cooked a lone.

43. What is your favorite vacation?
I haven't been on vacation in years. In my life, at the ocean, despite the sunburn.

44. Last person you went out to dinner with?
My friend Brian, I believe.

45. What are you listening to right now?
Annoying people in the study hall.

46. What is your favorite color?

47. How many tattoos do you have?

48. What’s your favorite breakfast food?
I dream about breakfast food fairly regularly. It's not a fair question.

49. What time did you finish this quiz?
11:40 am

50. Coffee drinker?
Hell yes.

I loooove squids. Maybe because i spend my childhood in the Far East of Russia.

Figure skating is kind of national kind of sport here. My mom is an addict.

A Ferris wheel would kill me. Literally.

I need to hug you now. You are not lonely.

See, I hear that's the type of thing you need to eat the day it's caught. So I've never had it fresh.

I also tend get hockey nostalgia; in Detroit it's more important than any other sport, so I'd always hear about the games, and I was allowed pride at having a team that's the best. (In the eighties and early nineties like...half the team was Russian) 'Course, around here we say "Last night I went to a fight, and a hockey game happened!"

Most of my socializing either comes through university, and I'm more liable to text them on the phone, or over LJ. So don't feel bad! (email for me is more a business tool than anything)

LOL! Good answer.

Fear of tornadoes - eh, yeah. I lived in Michigan and Wisconsin for two years. They really are no fun. :/
