01) Are you currently in a serious relationship? YES
02) What was your dream growing up? I once had a dream when I was about four years old that I was opening up Pandora's box and all the nasty things were flying out. I know that's not perhaps the dream that you meant, but I don't know if I had a firm "dream" as such. (And obviously I was raised by Classics nerds).
03) What talent do you wish you had? I'd like to be able to fly... or have a better facility for learning languages.
04) If I bought you a drink what would it be? Probably a cocktail I hadn't tried before, that we both picked off the menu because of the stupid name and dared each other to order.
05) Favorite vegetable? Carrots. Boring, I know. Second place: Broccoli.
06) What was the last book you read? Rose Madder by Stephen King. I got it at the second hand store for 2 bucks, as an effort not to buy his new one ($33)
07) What zodiac sign are you? Scorpio. I'm SO mysterious and intense.
08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where. Usual ears and one in the top of the ear on the right side.
09) Worst Habit? Telling people what they want to hear
10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride? Of course.
11) What is your favorite sport? Ooooooh. Challenging. Cricket, probably, it's just so exciting. I mean that sincerely. FIVE DAYS OF PLAY ending in a draw. WOOT! For me - swimming or climbing.
12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude? I think mainly optimistic with periods of wintry pessimism.
13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me? Sit on the floor and chat about llife
14) Worst thing to ever happen to you? Ha! As if I'd answer that one. Also I believe that everything happens for a reason, so there's no WORST per se. Once I had a ruptured ovary, that hurt the worst physically.
15) Tell me one weird fact about you. I have extremely sharp hearing in high registers. I can hear some high pitched noises people aren't supposed to be able to.
16) Do you have any pets? My cat, Zizou, who is so awesome and you've heard all about him.
17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly? I'd be embarrassed by the mess and whisk you out to the park for a picnic instead.
18) What was your first impression of me? Slightly intimidating because you're very capable at a LOT of things. But friendly despite it. Which is nice.
19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary? Kinda scary AND cute. Which is the worst kind of scary in my mind.
20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be? I have kind of awkward Yorkshire-girl ankles. I'd like racehorse legs like my sister.
21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience? BOTH. I'd help and nag at the same time.
22) What color eyes do you have? Very blue.
23) Ever been arrested? No, sadly.
24) Bottle or can soda? It tastes nicer in the glass bottles.
25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it? Visit my sister in London.
27) What's your favorite place to hang out at? The beach. And the theatre.
28) Do you believe in ghosts? I'd like to, I've never seen one though and logically I DOUBT. I'd be pleased if I saw one though.
29) Favorite thing to do in your spare time? Read. Write. Play music.
30) Do you swear a lot? Yes, more than I should.
31) Biggest pet peeve? People who are mean because they are smart. I believe the greatest sign of intelligence is being kind with it, not dismissive.
32) In one word, how would you describe yourself? Thoughtful.
33) Do you believe/appreciate romance? Yeah, sure. I also appreciate the romantic gesture of coming home to all the dishes having been done, though.
34) Favourite and least favourite food? Oysters. and least favourite? Macdonalds cheeseburgers.
35) Do you believe in God? I think so. In an agnostic kind of way. I believe more than I don't believe, but then I'm very firmly against the use of God to oppress others, whether it's kids or races or countries.
36) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you? Not now... because I'm off to the dentist. GAH. Maybe later. I'm not sure!

I didn't have any "dreams of my future as an XYZ" when I was a child either, not really. I always kind of envied those who knew (or thought they knew) what they wanted to do!

I have extremely sharp hearing in high registers. I can hear some high pitched noises people aren't supposed to be able to.
I have acute high-range hearing as well, though I don't know that I'm hearing the "unhearable." I'm just hearing things that other people either can't, or that do not grate on them as they do me!!!

I had the same problem with the "sports" question as you-- I answered for both what I like to watch and what I like to do. Both are important, in my book. :)

32) In one word, how would you describe yourself? Thoughtful.
I almost put that for me, but I don't always consistently live up to the "thinking about others as much as I should," so I went with "Reflective" instead (which is the other meaning).

My "last book" turns over really frequently, so it's rarely anything momentous or even, erm, adult. The last one I finished was juvenile fiction about a classroom hamster. I'm reading 3 others right now, two of them for grownups. :0

Thanks for playing!
