02) What was your dream growing up? Seeing my name on a CEO's door.
Wow. You were one of those people who had actual plans, or vision or something as a child. I was a "whim of the moment" kind of kid, which made junior year of high school kind of intimidating. :0

Wow, your fifth grade experience sounds terrible. :( I had clinical depression in the 3rd grade, but my husband's problems in the last couple of years outweigh that now.

You forgot your strange, personal, trueFacttm! And #18, too!

I also have the regular piercings (one in each ear, usual place), and went for either on the soda issue. Maybe because it's been a LONG time since I even had soda in a glass bottle (Strawberry Crush-- MMMmmmmm! Many decades ago).

I also didn't know you had a cat-- which brings out all sorts of thinky thoughts about how much he/she is enjoying the renovation projects!

re: 02) um...not so much a vision of a plan. Literally, I saw my initials and last name on a big-wig door. That's it. Nice shiny plaque with my name on it. The earliest thing I can remember wanting to do/be was make music videos. Ahhh, I loved the 80s *g*

re: fifth grade -- I've had chronic clinical depression since then, in addition to general anxiety and social anxiety. Geeeeee, wonder why? :P I am getting better, though. My newest drug cocktail has finally shut up the internal negative voice.

15) Tell me one weird fact about you. What, the need to organize my junk wasn't weird enough?? I have -- not what I'd call ESP, but when something's wrong with one of my immediate family, I can sense something's wrong. If I haven't slept for days, I'll find out my sis has been out drinking (or working late) until 3 or 4am. Or the phone will ring and I don't want to pick it up, because of some odd feeling I get. Once, it was my grandpa calling to tell me grandma fell up a small step and broke her forearm, and they were at the hospital. Twice I've been on the phone with my mom when a family member has been in the hospital -- bad things ensue. The first time, I was debating with myself whether to sign the lease on my first apartment. I had gone to the hospital the night before and told my grandma I finally found a place. She was on a ventilator but could understand everything perfectly; she just couldn't talk. Mom and I were talking about the lease, and she was paged, so she said she'd call me back because it might be the hospital. When I hung up the phone, I knew, just knew, grandma was gone. Mom called back a minute later barely able to speak. The second time, dad's mom was in the hospital. She'd been doing better/worse, but the doctor thought she may be strong enough to go home within the week. On the phone with mom and she gets another call. When she calls me back, I answered with, "She's gone, isn't she?" Then there's my sister's backaches when she was pregnant that I got, plus her upset stomach and odd food cravings. This extends to at least one friend of mine, alixsinclair. When we're at a con together, the celebs want to talk to us. It's like a psychic aura drawing people to us or something. I've also found myself having anxiety attacks for no reason, and find out later than my friend was having them, too. So, apparently, I'm a bit too sensitive.

18) What was your first impression of me? Now, see, this one was weird for me because it was right after the house question, so I thought it was asking what I thought of you standing outside my door! Online, I was exuberant/ecstatic that I'd found someone who thought of Dean Winchester the same way I did, and wrote such incredibly believable, well-written and evocative stories. I remember being envious of you because I haven't been able to write like that since...my Highlander fandom days, when I was the most depressed and the most prolific. It's about time for me to reread my "comments" folder, in which I place all the feedback I've received on all my writing since 1996. Yes, it's been transferred from computer to computer, added to as I've written new stories and gotten new feedback.

And now that I've watched the political debate, I'm getting a headache and have much to do tomorrow, so I'm off to bed.

I used to organize more when I had less stuff. Since having 2 kids and moving into a larger house, there's way more stuff than I'd like (god, the paperwork alone). But some of that is because my parents are packrats, who move the same junk from house-to-house (my Dad used to also have a moving-every-few-years problem). Knowing that my Dad refuses to get rid of paperback books he's never read and that he's had for at least 35 years... gah! Makes me want to purge through my library and donate stuff immediately.

We watched it (my daughter's idea, though she and Christopher yacked through a lot of it). I was very pleased with how Obama came off, and that he was able to turn McCain's crack about "The most liberal voting record in the Senate" into "Most of the votes to which Senator McCain refers were in opposition to the wrong-headed policies of George Bush." \o/

My mom has one of those old barrels (about 3' with a steel lid) full of her clothes from the '60. She moved it from her parents' basement when they died to her basement. *sigh* The barrel kept mold and mildew out, but the clothes are still musty and just....ew.

I found a fantastic book by Karen Kingston, "Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui." She gives the reasons why we keep things, why we collect things, and how we can learn to let go of things. I started my big purge when I was going to move from my first apartment, but didn't find this book until I was already in my second place. She talks about inherited clutteritis, and how we can retroactively "help" our ancestors by purging our stuff today. She also talks about "mental clutter" and unfinished things/projects as clutter. I have a ton of both of those that I'm slowly working on fixing.

The one thing I didn't like about Obama was the constant talking over McCain, which to me, made him come off extremely rude. If I didn't know about McCain's policies, I would have said he did slightly better, but the petulant "naivete" comments began to grate on my nerves. And is it just me, or does McCain look like the walking dead with the incredibly pale face/makeup and the dark, deep inset beady eyes? *evil grin*
