All my friends have been doing this meme, so it's made me want to fill it out too :) Unsurprisingly, my answers to several of the questions are the same as Rachel's :)

1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
Open. I didn’t have closet doors when I was little, and now, I leave the closet doors open because I’m afraid that if I close them, the cats will be in there and will get stuck XD

2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels?
Nope, I never really thought of it.

3. Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?
I sleep with them tucked out now because Rachel’s feet need to be FREE, but I would sleep tucked in otherwise. Confined spaces make me feel safe.

4. Have you stolen a street sign before?
No, why would I do that?

5. Do you like to use post-it notes?
Meh, not really. I use them at work but it’s not a good filing system for me.

6. Do you cut out coupons but then never use them?
I don’t ever remember to cut out coupons, but we practically never remember to use them when we do find them.

7. Would you rather be attacked by a big bear or a swarm of bees?
Bees. Assuming you actually mean physically attacked rather than just chased.

8. Do you have freckles?
Nope. Much to my displeasure.

9. Do you always smile for pictures?
I try to :) Rachel says I don’t smile big enough and end up looking wistful XD

10. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Echoing people before me who have said "people who are inconsiderate". <-- Yep

11. Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
Yeah, sometimes. I count a lot of things.

12. Have you peed in the woods?
Yes. I’m from Maine; there are practically no public restrooms north of Augusta XD

13. Have you ever pooped in the woods?

14. Do you ever dance even if there's no music playing?
Yes, all the time!

15. Do you chew your pens and pencils?
No. I click pens and pop chapstick caps off and on (sorry, people seated near me).

16. How many people have you slept with this week?
Only my wifey :)

17. What size is your bed?
It’s a queen. Thanks, Gramma!

18. What is your song of the week?
I’ve had “Shihatsu to Kafka” stuck in my head (it’s a Miku song) because part of the lyrics make up my work password.

19. Is it OK for guys to wear pink?
It’s okay for anyone to wear anything they want.

20. Do you still watch cartoons?
Sometimes I prefer cartoons XD

21. What is your least favorite movie?
Uh… hm. I think I would say “The Mist” because of the “trapped infighting” horror movie trope and people being horrible to each other. Also any movies in which the lesbians end up dead or miserable.

22. Where would you bury hidden treasure if you had some?
Do I need to own the land? There’s this really cool island in Spruce Creek near where I grew up, and you can only get it to it at low tide. I’d bury it there.

23. What do you drink with dinner?
Water. Sometimes lime seltzer. Rarely, Sprite.

24. What do you dip a chicken nugget in?
I dip fake chicken nuggets in ranch and mustard, mostly. Ketchup is good too but I like it more for potato things.

25. What is your favorite food?
POTATO THINGS. French fries forever. Grilled cheese. Nachos.

26. What movies could you watch over and over again and still love?
The Secret of Kells, Fellowship of the Ring, The Hobbit (animated Rankin-Bass version), Hamlet (both Branagh and Tennant versions)

27. Last person you kissed/kissed you?
Rachel! <3

28. Were you ever a boy/girl scout?
I was in girl scouts when I was in elementary school. It was pretty disorganized, but I had fun.

29. Would you ever strip or pose nude in a magazine?
Nnn… don’t think so.

30. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
I wrote Jenn a birthday card the other day :)

31. Can you change the oil on a car?
No, but my wife can XD

32. Ever gotten a speeding ticket?
No. Only pulled over once and he let me off.

33. Ever ran out of gas?
No, luckily.

34. What’s your favorite kind of sandwich?
Grilled cheese and Bridget’s “The Sandwich.”

35. Best thing to eat for breakfast?
Steel-cut oatmeal with frozen berries and maple syrup. Also home fries. The ONLY meat I miss is corned beef hash.

36. What is your usual bedtime?
around 10 - 10:30 PM ish <-- Same. We never go to bed separately unless one of us is sick.

37. Are you lazy?
I don’t know if I believe in “lazy.” Sometimes I don’t want to do things.

38. When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?
A cat, a ghost, Alvin the Chipmunk, a Native American (to my shame), a Care Bear, the Man in Black from the Princess Bride.

39. What is your Chinese astrological sign?

40. How many languages can you speak?
English and enough Japanese to probably make it around in Japan on vacation with a good vocabulary book. I can pour my heart out to you in Japanese about my feelings, but I’m not so sure I can understand directions to the nearest train station.

41. Do you have any magazine subscriptions?
I’ve gotten Faerie Magazine for the past two years (subscriptions at Spoutwood!) But I haven’t actually gotten around to reading the last two issues… The lack of queerness, even acknowledgement, is constantly disappointing and frustrating. And it’s strange, because my other experiences with faerie culture have been very inclusive.

42. Which are better: legos or lincoln logs?
Legos, probably, but I used to play with an old set of Lincoln logs at my grandmother’s house so I have fond memories of them.

43. Are you stubborn?
No. I’m the opposite of stubborn :\

44. Who is better: Leno or Letterman?
Leno annoyed me and I know practically nothing about Letterman, so…

45. Ever watch soap operas?
Girl/Girl Scene is the only soap-operaish thing I watch right now :) And I haven’t ever watched any daytime soap operas.

46. Are you afraid of heights?
Nope. Not at all.

47. Do you sing in the car?
HELL YES. Loudly.

48. Do you sing in the shower?
Yes :) Mostly to/about the cats.

49. Do you dance in the car?
Pretty much only if Rachel is there XD

Yes I have, in a firing range. <-- Same.

51. Last time you got a portrait taken by a photographer?
Laura took our portrait at Blue Moon a few years ago! <3

74. Own any record albums?
Not personally. My parents had Snoopy and the Red Baron when I was little.

75. Own a record player?

83. Can you swim well?
Well enough. I don’t know many strokes, but I don’t worry about drowning.

Outside of the water, of course. Underwater, I have to blow air out of my nose in order to not have water go UP my nose :\

85. Are you patient?
I have (sometimes regrettably) endless patience with people. I have very little patience with video games and computers. But I still love them XD

DJ, probably.

Yeah, a couple over the years.

88. Have you ever had plastic surgery?

Neither. Not a fan of olives.

Living room, I think, or a nice big bedroom.
