1: Talk about the first time you watched your favorite movie.
I was ten and making pot holders with my friend Melissa. (No, that’s not code for something, we were actually making potholders.) Her brothers were there too. We all had popcorn and watched it on their family computer because they didn’t have a DVD player yet. (Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring.)
2: Talk about your first kiss.
It sucked. Selfish, stupid, bastard. :/ Looking forward to better. I deserve better.
3: Talk about the person you’ve had the most intense romantic feelings for.
Writer. Need I say more?
4: Talk about the thing you regret most so far.
Not standing up for myself in particular situations… and that night in Brooklyn.
5: Talk about the best birthday you’ve had.
None of them really standout. :( Birthdays and me don’t mix. Last year I went to the gynecologist. That was the highlight of my birthday. Yeah…
6: Talk about the worst birthday you’ve had.
7: Talk about your biggest insecurity.
Me. That is my biggest insecurity. I’m plagued by the idea the I will never be enough. Pretty, smart, funny, etc. No matter how good I get, it’s never enough… I’m a work in progress.
8: Talk about the thing you are most proud of.
Surviving my teenage years. Recovery… Writing out the special edition Lord of the Rings movies from memory when I was 16. :D
9: Talk about little things on your body that you like the most.
My collar bone. My long neck. Long fingers.
10: Talk about the biggest fight you’ve ever had.
Where to begin? So many to choose from.
11: Talk about the best dream you’ve ever had.
I died and met John Lennon and Danny Kaye in heaven. I asked John if he found what he was looking for and he said yes. I danced with Danny Kaye and felt graceful and pretty and alive.
12: Talk about the worst dream you’ve ever had.
I had a dream that my Mom and I were being chased by some super creepy evil spirit thing and she didn’t believe that the thing was chasing us.
13: Talk about the first time you had sex/how you imagine your first time.
No comment. But damn girls, never be afraid to say no. If he’s pressuring you, tell him to fuck off. You deserve someone who loves you enough to wait until you are 100% comfortable and ready and sure.
14: Talk about a vacation.
Vacation? That’s that thing that rich people do right?
15: Talk about the time you were most content in life.
Probably now. I have no idea what I’m doing with my life but somehow life’s never been better. Weird I know.
16: Talk about the best party you’ve ever been to.
Christmas parties at my aunt’s when I was a kid. Me and the sibs and my cousins would all hangout and eat junk food and play Mario Kart on Nintendo. Best fun I’ve ever had.
17: Talk about someone you want to be friends with.
Jeff Foxworthy, Craig Ferguson, Amanda Palmer, Laci Green, Hank and John Green, Weird Al, Helena Bonham Carter, Gilda Radner, Jim Gaffigan, and so many more.
18: Talk about something that happened in elementary school.
I got called fat by a lot of girls and the boy I had a HUGE crush on.
19: Talk about something that happened in middle school.
Me and the only three friends I had, organized three different pranks on the teachers we hated most. It was glorious chaos. And we didn’t get caught. Best day EVER!
20: Talk about something that happened in high school.
I was homeschooled for high school and left by myself too often. My mental state was REALLY bad at that point. My High School memories consist of trying not to kill myself, crying, reading A LOT, blasting music, and crying… like most people.
21: Talk about a time you had to turn someone down.
Several old creepers when I was using/drinking. Old guys love me.
22: Talk about your worst fear.
Being alone forever.
23: Talk about a time someone turned you down.
First you have to have someone for them to turn you down. Or at least have the courage to want someone. I’ll get back to you when that happens.
24: Talk about something someone told you that meant a lot.
My Dad teaching me that just because you’re in pain doesn’t mean you get a free pass to be a dickhead to everyone else.
My friend Manuel, (May he rest in peace) in response to my self pitying comment, that I am like a black rose, completely devoid of color and life and will never be happy or bring happiness to others… “a black rose is still a flower and a flower is one of the few magical things left in this world.”
25: Talk about an ex-best friend.
My only ‘best friend’ I am still friends with. I’m of the pre-Facebook opinion that you don’t need a million friends who don’t really know you, just a few close true friends that actually care.
26: Talk about things you do when you’re sick.
Watching ‘The X- Files’ always makes me feel better. Mulder and Scully forever ♥
27: Talk about your favorite part of someone else’s body.
Eyes all the way.
28: Talk about your fetishes.
Guys with longish hair or facial hair. Love it. Guys with dimples.
29: Talk about what turns you on.
Such a cliché, I know, but confidence. And guys who are chivalrous. Hold the friggin door open for me. Help me with my coat. Not because you think I’m helpless or incapable, because you like me enough to treat me with kindness and respect.
30: Talk about what turns you off.
Smoking. Treating me like I’m your mother and not your lover.
31: Talk about what you think death is like.
32: Talk about a place you remember from your childhood.
The alley behind a friend’s house. She lived down the street from us and me and her and my sister used to play baseball and kickball there all the time. Broke a lot of shit. Sorry neighbors.
33: Talk about what you do when you are sad.
Clean and listen to music.
34: Talk about the worst physical pain you’ve endured.
I get REALLY bad periods. Always have. I bleed like a stuck pig and get cramps so severe they make me nauseous and fever-y. Not fun.
35: Talk about things you wish you could stop doing.
36: Talk about your guilty pleasures.
The tv show ‘Melissa and Joey’. So cute.
37: Talk about someone you thought you were in love with.
After seeing Lord of the Rings I became obsessed with Viggo Mortensen and have said ever since, if I were to get serious with someone, it would be that type of guy.
38: Talk about songs that remind you of certain people.
'The Sadder But Wiser Girl For Me' from 'The Music Man' always makes me think of one of my childhood friends. We were probably 8 or 9 and decided to perform that song for our parents. TOTALLY did NOT understand the meaning of the song at all. Thankfully our parents were aware of that fact and clapped good naturedly… still makes me laugh thinking about it.
39: Talk about things you wish you’d known earlier.
How to ask for help. How to say no to people.
40: Talk about the end of something in your life.
My feet are at the end of me. They’re sore as fuck!
