But first… A note… Several of you asked to be interviewed by me. Please check the post to see if your questions are up or if you’d like to be interviewed.

Below are questions I’ve received with my answers
From faerievixen2 behind the cut

I bring this one around on occasion. It keeps me busy

  1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
  2. I will respond by asking you five questions of a very intimate and creepily personal nature. Or not so creepy/personal.
  3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
  4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
  5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Edit 12:12 pm. I’ve changed comments to screened to allow freedom of response. Please note if you want your responses unscreened.

MemeTime: MovieQuotes

With all due credit to tzaddi_93 for bringing this one back for me.

Edit: 7:45 am: – I will note who got each one correct up until I expose the answer. So if you guessed it 2nd but before I exposed it; you’ll get solving props too.

Edit: 7:50 am: – I will expose the correct answer for your first guess. If you guess more than one right… I’ll credit you, but not expose it until either someone else guesses it else enough time elapses that no one else get is. Reason… I have an extremely talented person on my list who got them all. marta_s rocks. So I’m going to list her here in the main post to credit her and this way others can still guess.

Edit 6:36 pm: – All answers are guessed. All comments unscreened
Big props to marta_s for getting them all right reallllly fast
Strong props to apsulute and paulrhume for early mutliple guesses
Great work to exnomine, tzaddi_93, shimmeringjemmy and o1oo1ooo for hitting some good multples as well.


Okay, here’s one going around that I’ll do.

I will list 10 (well, 12) movie quotes. You need to guess the film. (The character is icing, but not necessary)

Comments are screened until guessed, then correct guessers will be edited into the post.
Here be the quotes…

Please read carefully, This is not what you think it is.

Also, with due respect to the people I do consider friends and loved ones who’ve posted on this topic; this is not a personal attack on you.

Comments are not screened. If you’ve ever had a smidge of a crush on me and you haven’t let me know about it; I really don’t want you to comment about it quietly and secretly in my journal. Personally, I’d rather you tell me. Face to face.

See, more often than naught, I consider myself the monarch of low self-image. Therefore, I tend not to ask (anymore) to see if people crush on me. I tried it once a while ago. I got no responses. And with a friend’s list at the time numbering about 150 of which I had crushes on no less than about 45 people… it was… well not what I was hoping for. Amusingly, the girlfriend at the time opted not to respond either assuming I’d get lots of responses.

I contemplated why I posted it. What good would it do me? X, Y, and Z might have a crush on me. Oh gosh I hope Y tells me they have a crush on me? Oh, wait… what do I do if X tells me they have a crush on me.. I hope they don’t. Why open myself to all this? Well, the result was fun. No one I was interested in replied… no one I wasn’t interested in replied.

I like to resort to my rather dense side on this topic. When I’m out with someone I’m really more interested in learning about them and being myself with them instead of trying to fish for a pick up. I’d love to think people are crushing on me. But I really don’t want to bait it on LiveJournal. If someone likes me… I’d really the person to tell me. Preferably in person. I don’t have a lot of time to get out anymore. So I’d like to see someone who takes the time to become involved with me.

So, I guess; wondering if I have secret crushes out there over me doesn’t interest me anymore because I don’t have time for them. I don’t have the time to put in the energy in the delusion that someone that I think is attractive to me in an intellectual, personality, or physical way; actually will desire to do more than interact with me as a friend. In truth being told someone has a crush on me feels more like a tease than anything else.

I’ve kept too many personal fires in the past two years for people who I know have no plans to help me fan them.

Feel free to comment below. I won’t mock you, only you and I and anyone who chooses to read the comments of this post will ever know.

This is also an anti-meme. Meaning I’m not trying to spread my thoughts to others… I’m just speaking my own mind.

P.S. despite the tone of this I am in a good mood and the tone of this is meant to be matter of fact.
