1. Can you cook?
Surprisingly, it would seem so. I can bake better though, as long as I don't try to bake vegan.

2. What was your dream growing up?
Egad... ballerina, or singer.

3. What talent do you wish you had?

4. Favorite place?
In my husband's arms

Artichokes, especially if someone else cooks them.

Ummmm.... I don't remember, but before that one, it was So Long and Thanks for All the Fish by Douglas Adams

7. What zodiac sign are you ?
Western - Libra; Vedic - Virgo

8. Any Tattoos and/or Piercings?
All my piercings have closed, but I've had each ear pierced multiple times (the right one once more than the left), and my tongue pierced. And I have 5 tattoos, which I don't feel like writing out, 'cause it's late. If anyone's interested in details, just comment.

9. Worst Habit?
Overeating, I suppose

10. Do we know each other outside of lj?
Yes, but sadly, not as well as we used to.

11. What is your favorite sport?
To play? Not too many. Kickball?
To watch? Football, unless gymnastics/figure skating counts

12. Negative or Optimistic attitude?
Optimistic, really. Although I tend to be cynical sometimes.

13. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
Talk, probably.

14. Worst thing to ever happen to you?
Hard to pin it down to any one thing. Losing someone.

Hmmm... I'm fixating on the "if" in that sentence for some reason. I can't think of much I couldn't change, IF I really chose to do so.

21. Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
Probably your crime partner. You have a pretty good conscience. If you were gonna do a "crime" you'd probably already have thought about it a lot.

22. What color eyes do you have?

23. Ever been arrested?

24. Bottle or Draft?
I'm not enough of a connoisseur to be able to tell any difference in taste.

bookofmirrors: (Default)
Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

Mine from userinfoProfundis

1. cats

As in, I have lots! And I do things that some would find stupid on their behalf. As in, making sure all partners know they're a package deal and non-negotiable. As in, moving out of apartments and/or paying exorborant (sp?) amounts of security deposits in order to make sure their place is assured. Etc..

2. dreamer

OK, really, does this need elucidation? I think not. In fact, if you go a post or so back, you'll see the INFP link, wherein it even calls my personality type a dreamer.

3. no boundaries

Ain't it the truth? *sigh* I still have trouble with this one. I now know enough to know that this is a result of my schizoid defense, in Core terms. I have some deep-seated doubts about this whole incarnation-on-Earth thing this time around, so I tend to prefer the world of Spirit, wherein there really aren't too many boundaries. Sometimes I (willfully or not) forget about boundaries in The Real World.

4. nursing

I'm a nurse. That was easy.

5. kindness

:) Thank you.

What are your nicknames?
Well, both K'La and Krista are kindasorta nicknames, in a weird kinda way. My parents call me Lynnie a good deal, and a lot of my friends up north call me Quib. My husband has more interesting and varied nicknames for me. :)

What is your bedroom like?
Celestial themed... navy blue, gold, silver, and lots of sun/moon/stars stuff

What's the last book you read?
Catch 22 by Joseph Heller

What color shirt are you wearing now?
I'm wearing a fuzzy pink bathrobe, no shirt.

Are you an introvert or extrovert?
I'm an introvert in the sense that I don't like to leave the house. Once I'm out, I tend to be more extroverted, if quiet sometimes.

Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer?

Do you nap a lot?
Not really

Who was the last person you hugged?
The Beastie, no doubt

What's your current fandom/obsession/addiction?
Ummmm.... not sure I have one, per se. I'm in the middle of the third book of the Twilight series, and enjoying that, and also just finished Wicked, so I wanna read more in that series, but I'm not really obsessed.

What are you currently reading?
Coraline by Neil Gaiman, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe by Douglas Adams, Turning the Hiram Key by Robert Lomas, and Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer

Coffee or tea?
Depends on my mood

If you could magically change careers, and be as successful in your new career as you are in your current one, what would you be?

GMail, Comcast, usually LJ if I'm not busy

What time is your usual bedtime?
I'm not sure I have one anymore... seems to be around 3:00am

What kind of mp3 player do you have?
I think my BlackBerry plays MP3s... haven't looked that closely

What is your favorite weather?
Crisp, clear, bright, autumn day

What did you last laugh at?
I have no idea... no doubt something amusing the Beastie did

I can barely see 10 months ahead! I have a lot of wishes... let's see if I can manifest them.

Your Word is "Why"

You see life as complicated and intriguing. The only thing you know for sure is that you haven't figured it all out yet.

You question everything and believe very little. And whatever you believe is likely to change.

You are interested in theories, philosophies, and religions... even if you don't buy into any of them.

You are also fascinated by how things work. You'd like to understand as much in the world as possible.

I hadn't taken the Belief-O-Matic test in a while, so I thought I'd take it again... rather unexpected results. I think last time I was just about 100% "New Thought".

My guess is that I got this result 'cause in some of the sections where it said to check ALL that apply, my happy little world of co-existing paradoxes stepped in, and I therefore got the result that most exemplified "diverse beliefs".


1. Unitarian Universalism (100%)
2. Neo-Pagan (87%)
3. New Age (87%)
4. Liberal Quakers (86%)
5. New Thought (76%)

You Are An INFP

The Idealist

You are a creative person with a great imagination. You enjoy living in your own inner world.

Open minded and accepting, you strive for harmony in your important relationships.

It takes a long time for people to get to know you. You are hesitant to let people get close to you.

But once you care for someone, you do everything you can to help them grow and develop.

In love, you tend to have high (and often unrealistic) standards.

You are very sensitive. You tend to have intense feelings.

At work, you need to do something that expresses your personal values.

You would make an excellent writer, psychologist, or artist.

How you see yourself: Unselfish, empathetic, and spiritual

When other people don't get you, they see you as: Unrealistic, naive, and weak

OK, I got this from [ profile] beauty_moves, and I fully intend to do the pay-for-coffee thing, since I'm not the least bit artistically inclined. However, if anyone wants to chance the horrificness that is my artistic talent, far be it from me to take that choice away from you.

I will say, however, that I just got a shiny new vegan cookbook, and (as money permits) fully intend to experiment. If you wanna be in on an experiment or two as part of this, I'm up for that, too.

The first ten people to comment in this post AND repost this meme in their own journal get to request a sketch on the topic of their choosing from me!

If you are not artistically inclined, I'm sure there's something equivalent you can do for others. Help someone fix something, feed a parking meter that's about to run out, pay for coffee for the person behind you in line. Just pass it along. This totally counts.

From [ profile] popfiend (By the way, [ profile] popfiend, if you'll pick something from here, I'll use it for you from now on.)

A. Each tagged person must post 8 things about themselves on their journal.
B. At the end, you have to choose and tag 8 people.

I got long-winded... )

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In April I farted in an elevator (-6 points). Last Friday I broke [ profile] virtualmel's X-Box (-12 points). Last month I had a shoot-out with rival gang lords on the 5 near LA (-76 points). Last Tuesday I helped [ profile] chalice66 see the light (8 points). Last week I stole [ profile] bonecat's purse (-30 points).

Overall, I've been naughty (-116 points). For Christmas I deserve a spanking!

One MILLION Dollars.

OK, here's the deal. You are given $1,000,000 to do with as you see fit. List the first 10 things you'd do with that money.

Bonus Question: What would you be willing to do for that $1,000,000 if you were required to perform a single favor in exchange for it?

1. Leave me a comment saying you want to do the meme.
2. I'll respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.
3. You should update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You should include this explanation and offer to ask someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be asked, you will ask them five questions.

My Questions from userinfoDarthBecca

Cut for my customary lengthy answers )
bookofmirrors: (Default)
[01] Do you have the guts to answer these questions and re-post as The Controversial Survey?
I actually find this question kind of insulting.

[02] Would you do meth if it was legalized?
I've never heard anything good about meth. Because I'm me, I'd probably try it once, just to see what the big deal was, but I wouldn't be interested in more than that.

[03] Abortion: for or against it?
Both. I could never do it myself, to the degree that anyone ever knows how they would react to a situation they haven't been in; but I would never presume to impose my personal views on anyone else, and I definitely vote Pro-Choice.

[04] Do you think the world would fail with a female president?
No more than it has with a male one.

[05] Do you believe in the death penalty?
Not really. However, the legal system is way fucked up, overcrowded, etc.. Not killing people would increase the already overcrowded prison population. Also, while I think almost anyone can be rehabilitated, the system currently set up to do so isn't particularly good. So there's not a good alternative, either. But I don't think we can just off people because we're unwilling to tackle the problem and make the system work for everyone.

[06] Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?
Marijuana and every other drug. Educate, educate, educate. REAL education, not scare tactics. Then let people make their own choices, and deal with whatever consequences come.

[07] Are you for or against premarital sex?
I'm not against it. To say I'm for it would imply that people should go get laid willynilly for the sake of it. Pre-marital sex, like all other sex, should be entered into with consciousness.

[08] Do you believe in God?
In all forms.

[09] Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?
Yes. I still can't figure out why this is so hard for people.

[10] Do you think it's wrong that so many Hispanics are illegally moving to the USA?
Tough one. I like being the "bring me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free" country. But things like this worry me. I'd be less worried if the FairTax were implemented, but still... makes you think. The legality of it is somewhat less worrisome to me than the numbers, and the conditions in other countries that make ours look so much better by comparison.

[11] A twelve year old girl has a baby, should she keep it?
That depends on too many factors. In other countries, that wouldn't even be cause for alarm. In this country, it really depends on the goals and resources of the mother.

[12] Should the alcohol age be lowered to eighteen?
Sort of. I'm leaning towards abolishing a legal age limit altogether.

[13] Should the war in Iraq be called off?
Carefully. I think quitting cold turkey could be dangerous to all involved, but I'd be happier if we weren't involved in *any* wars. But, then, I'm a bit of a pacifist. Can't we all just get along?

[14] Assisted suicide is illegal: do you agree?
No. We give our animals more consideration in this area than our humans. Again, personal choice, after education and presentation of options. I already have a plan (that won't get anyone in trouble) should I ever be faced with that choice.

[15] Do you believe in spanking your children?
Under no circumstances.

[16] Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?
I'd do a whole lotta things for a million dollars. Burning a flag doesn't hurt anything but one's tender sensibilities.

[17] Who do you think would make a better president? McCain or Obama?
I don't think I'm voting for either of them. Given the choice between the two, though, I'd rather see Obama in office.

[18] Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?
Probably. I'm usually afraid of judgment.

Your result for The Who Would You Be in 1400 AD Test...

The Prioress

You are a moral person and are also highly intellectual. You like your solitude but are also kind and helpful to those around you. Guided by a belief in the goodness of mankind you will likely be christened a saint after your life is over.

You scored high as both the Lady and the Monk. You can try again to get a more precise description of either the Monk or the lady, or you can be happy that you're an individual.
