Anyway, I was feeling sort of down in the dumps today, so a bit of fun, silly blogging was just what I needed to relax a little. Here's how this works. You answer the 10 questions below, and then you post 10 random facts about yourself. Huzzah! At the end, you're supposed to pick 7 bloggers to tag, but I kind of exhausted all of my blogger friends this week so I'll take the cheap way out: If you're reading this, consider yourself tagged. You're welcome.
What is your favorite song? It changes way too much for me to ever have a single favorite. Sometimes I'll get kind of obsessed with a song and will listen to it on repeat for days on end and try to inflict it on every single person in the whole world. But today I think it's "Make it Stop (September's Children)" by Rise Against. That song is haunting and beautiful and the music video makes me cry.
What is your favorite dessert? A maple blondie with caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream and oh my god why am i not eating that right now.
What ticks you off? Going out of my way to be really considerate of someone else, and then not getting the same courtesy in exchange -- or even any acknowledgment of the courtesy whatsoever. Just a simple, "thank you" or "I'm sorry" would make me happy, but, sadly, people seem to be lacking manners in this day and age.
What do you do when you're upset? Depends on how upset. Usually I just get sort of snarky and pass it off like it's nothing, but if it's really, really bad I'll pretty much shut down completely and you won't be able to get a word out of me.
Which is/was your favorite pet? My wolf-hybrid that I had growing up, Max. He had to be put to sleep when he was 13 (three years ago now) and I still miss him a lot.
Which do you prefer, black or white? This seems like a trick question. I choose.......purple.
What is your biggest fear? I have an anxiety disorder, so mostly I just have a lot of generalized fears about people/thing. I'm really freaked out by birds and dead bodies, though. Dead birds are the worst.
What is your attitude mostly? Cynic with a heart of gold
What is perfection? An unatainable goal. Buffy re-runs and a pint of Ben & Jerry's comes in pretty close, though.
What is your guilty pleasure? Terrible horror movies.
