Is there anyone else in the room with you atm? What are they doing?
Yup. Nate’s at his computer playing Europa Universalis. In other words, he’s turning the world into the Ottoman Empire.
Do you show your teeth when you smile, or do you prefer smiling with your lips closed?
If I’m smiling genuinely, I show my teeth, I think.
Would you rather be told the truth, even if it isn’t what you want to hear?
What is something that you plan to buy, as soon as you’ve saved up the money for it?
I have no idea. A new iPod? But I don’t want to replace my old one until it’s absolutely necessary.
Do you play Sudoku?
No. My mom is addicted to it, though.
Have you ever had a migraine?
Boy, have I! I also get scintillating scotomas as my aura. (the video is quite an accurate depiction of what that looks like.)
What was the last book you read for pleasure?
Uhhhhhhh…The Ox-Bow Incident, I think.
What was the last item of clothing you purchased for yourself?
Probably the Kinvaras I bought in May. They’re almost dead now.
Your first serious relationship, do you still talk to him/her?
Not in person since we don’t live in the same town, but he comments on my blogs and I (very belatedly) comment back!
Who is the last person you texted?
How close is your family?
Not extremely, in my opinion. My mom and I are super close, though.
Do you like to understand and have good knowledge of things?
What is worse? Back pain or shoulder pain?
I’ve never had back pain, but I do get occasional shoulder pain from either hauling a 30-pound backpack on one of my long walks or from just having my shoulders tense all the time. So I’ll say shoulder pain.
Have you ever almost fallen off of something high off the ground?
I don’t think so. Nothing’s memorable, at least.
What’s one fruit you love in drinks?
Like…the drink has to be made from the fruit juice or the drink just has to have the fruit in it in some other context? I like apple juice, but I wouldn’t want to take a glass of water and put some apple in it.
What is something simple that you’re afraid of?
Has this weekend been good?
It’s been okay. The last few weeks have kind of been bad in general, so that’s been affecting the weekends to an extent.
