Good morning. I’m still in bed, the manbeast is asleep beside me. The cats have been fed and they’re relatively quiet. I’m sure to get a call from my mother asking if I want to take a drive to Costco today – she’s on the hunt for Crisco which is kinda hard to find in Australia – so I thought I would do a Sunday Stealing to start my day.
Apparently there were 88 questions to this particular SS. Hmmm. Must’ve missed that bit.
69. Song you’re thinking of right now?
Jar of Hearts. This version:
70. Want someone back in your life?
Yeah, I do. But I think we’ve sort of outgrown one another. It’s been kind of hard to let go of him. We were friends for a long time and it was one of those relationships where you could pick up right where you left off, no matter if it had been a week or six months. But six months eventually turned into a few years and being on different continents makes even touching base hard. I miss him, dearly. I think we both left indelible marks on each other. I can’t listen to The Cure without thinking about him.
It hurts to listen to The Cure.
71. Will tomorrow be better than today?
Tomorrow I will apply for five jobs and contact three agencies. It will be better than today.
72. What’s the color of the underwear you are wearing?
Black. It’s usually always black. Except when it’s red.
73. Who was the first best friend that you ever had?
My first ever best friend that I remember was Tanya. She was six months older than I and as such, she ended up being a year ahead of me in primary school due to the way the age system worked – she turned five in the first half of the year whereas I turned five in the latter which meant I had to start the year after her. Grr. Primary school was a real pain, particularly when they separated the senior classes (grades three and up) from the junior classes (grades 2 and down) into two different yards at lunchtime and recess. She and I both dreaded the year that she got into grade three. We would try to play in the little area between the yards but unfortunately that was right in line with the staff room so any teacher coming out of there would catch us and send us on our separate ways. I have no idea why they wouldn’t allow us to play together. Anyway, it was better when I finally got to grade three… but grade two was the longest year of my life.
74. How do you react when someone disappoints you?
I internalise a lot. I’ll rationalise, give them the benefit of the doubt, try to shrug it off. It does depend on the situation. Sometimes I can’t go the “oh well” route. Sometimes I get angry. Sometimes I cry.
75. Is there anyone who understands your sexuality?
Hell, I don’t think *I* understand my sexuality sometimes. I’m bi. That’s enough, I suppose.
76. Are you a naturally happy person? Or is your happiness forced?
Unfortunately a lot of my happiness is forced. Fake it until you make it, right? I don’t like it but it’s better than constantly upsetting people by showing how unhappy you are sometimes.
77. Is there anyone you wish would fall in love with you?
Ray Stevenson? Hugh Jackman? Heston Blumenthal? Keanu Reeves?
78. What do you wear when you sleep?
Usually a t-shirt and trackies in the winter. In summer… nothin’ but a sheet. Daring.
79. Are you obsessed with something right now?
80. The first person you loved is?
Depends on the love we’re talking about. In all cases, I am not sure.
81. Something terrible happened with you?
Not worth mentioning here.
82. You are locked up with your celebrity crush for days, what happens?
He realises I am undeniably sexy and cannot keep his hands off me. We go all National Geographic.
83. If you could wish something, what would it be?
I wish I could win enough money just to pay off the mortgage. I am not greedy.
84. Ever try to force someone to do something?
LOL I have a younger sister. Of course I did.
85. When you are alone, what do you think about?
What I am doing with my life and how it’s not turned out at all like I thought it would.
86. How was your first sex?
Odd question. And my “first sex” was painful – but not in the way you’re thinking. -.-
87. What’s your favorite music genre?
I don’t have one. I have very, very eclectic tastes. I find songs that I enjoy and tend to listen to those over and over again. I can listen to the same handful of songs for years before I will find some others. Right now I’m lovinng Owl City’s Fireflies… and that was released in 2009.
88. Are you happy I only wrote 88 questions?
I’m happy I didn’t have to answer all 88 of them.
