chasing shadows again

{August 21, 2007}   Meme

This meme is stolen from Dreamer.

1. Closest red thing to you?
Red on the DVD cover for Season 1 of Supernatural.
2. Has anyone ever cheated on you in a relationship?
All of my relationships for the last…seven years have been open relationships. Before that…I suspect perhaps one person.
3. Last thing to make you MAD!?
Everything makes me mad this week. Emo-puppy, was the last thing, when he jumped on me and caused the slamming of my thumb in a sliding glass door.
4. Are you a fan of romance?
Yes. Especially when I give out black roses for Valentine’s Day.
5. Have you ever been in love?
Yes. I fall in love as easily as the rain. I stay in love too. But it seems that I am not so easy to love or to stay with.
6. Do you have a temper?
Yes. Though I tend to sulk more than fight.

1. Closest orange thing to you?
The bits of newspaper that my bonsai tree tray was wrapped in have a lot of orange in them. Whole pages of Walmart ads.
2. Do you like to burn things?
Things is not descriptive enough.
3. Do you dress up for Halloween?
Yes. Some people thing my Halloween dress up doesn’t count (it is most often a new outfit and wings – but I look forward to Halloween every year. It is the one time I can justify spending money on clothes (and I’ve spent like…$400 on stuff for Halloween on years I also get boots – usually closer to $200).
4. Are you usually a warm-hearted person?
5. Do you prefer the single life or the security of a relationship?

Relationship. I am seriously not happy when single.
6. What would your superpower be?
Mmmmmmm…that question always makes me giggle now, after one of my friends answered with ‘the ability to make anyone, anywhere orgasm.’ He then proceeded to explain how he would not only use this power on hot girls at bars, but detailed his plan to use it to bring world peace. Mine, I’m afraid, is tamer – I go with Dreamer, healing.

1. Closest yellow thing to you?
The yellow chair that I can remember having in my houses forever. Not the one my brother and I covered in smiley-face stickers.
2. The happiest time[s] of your life?
God. Um. Fuck. I have no idea.
3. Favorite holiday?
Winter – which blurs into one big holiday for me. Halloween leads into it with some fun, some drinks, and a party or two. Thanksgiving is generally a pretty community affair – I love cooking for people, when I have a place, I’m hosting Halloween indefinitely. Indefinitely being until I’m dead. Then comes Christmas, which I love – cookies and gifts, you don’t have to believe Jesus is your savior to enjoy baking and shopping! And…New Year’s Eve finished that up with…well…a lot of booze and a lot of kisses to ring in the new year. And traditionally with at least one group of people, I wear lingerie. And heels. Valentine’s Day I’m actually kinda twitchy about – primarily because mine normally suck.
4. Are you a coward?
Oh god yes.
5. Do you burn or tan?
Mmmmmm…Joe’s affectionate nickname for me was vampire. You decide.
6. Do you want children?
7. What makes you feel warm and safe?
Ravyn. The sound of cats purring. Not having to be in control of anything.

1. Closest green thing to you?
Either the coconut smelling orchid, or Cleopatra (my juniper bonsai).
2. Do you care about the environment?
3. Are you jealous of anyone right now?
Mmmmmm…jealous of people who get snuggles…I am far from all of my snuggly peoples.

Yes. Very much so. I may not always be happy, but I am very lucky.
