stolen from jenniffer (and this is not the real post i was talking about...)

1) Where do you live?

Vancouver, WA, which - contrary to popular belief - IS in the united states AND is a suburb of portland, oregon. for some reason, this greatly confuses many people. several of my friends in phoenix are still convinced i moved to canada.

2) How old are you?

31! i get told that i don't look/act my age, though! yay!

3) Married, or otherwise attached?

i've been single for... sheesh. 4 1/2 years now? not even anything i could really consider a date during that time, either. apparently i have commitment issues ;) that, and i've been too durned busy with everything else to deal with anything.

4) Kids? How many? How old?

nope! no kids. i usually joke that i'm allergic to them (in fact, i have a postcard hanging on my bedroom wall that says "honey, we need to get rid of the kids, the animals are allergic to them."), though instead of being dead set against having them, now i'm of a frame of mind to say "hrm. we'll see what life brings me."

5) Pets?

one calico cat, Little Bitchy Baby Bacci Arabella Butterfly Moonkitten Spaghetti Chewbacca Fourthofjuly. But we call her Bacci for short. sounds like botch-ee, not back-see. it means 'kisses' in italian. she loves to kiss us... with her teeth.

6) Occupation?

currently living the dream as a retail worker at officemax, part time. i'm almost coming up on three freaking years there, which blows me away. 31 and working at omx? sheesh ;) but i'm also going to school full time to get my bachelors in nursing, so i have THAT to look forward to.

7) Religious leanings?

i love discussing religion, as long as it's in a respectful manner. i know that there's a God, i fervently believe in him/her. i ... just don't know what form God takes. i've tried Christianity. i've tried Wicca. i've tried other things. what i've ended up doing is taking what 'feels' right from everything i've learned and applied it to my own belief system. organized religion frightens me. i also don't feel that someone can tell you WHAT to believe, you just do or do not. there is no try ;)

8) Political leanings?

lazy? hee hee. naw, i'm definitely more liberal than anything else. i never really discuss politics, as for some reason, as soon as i hear the word, my eyes glaze over and everything i hear just falls right out of the other ear.

9) What do you do for fun?

.... i've heard of that word... well, i guess you could say that my weekly improv classes are some of my greatest 'fun' anymore. (that and my band). since i don't have a lot of free time, i try to find fun in everything i do (and beauty, as silly as it sounds...) i text message a lot to keep me sane (and to feel like i'm being social.) i'm also into video games, though i haven't played much of anything lately. reading, though i haven't done much of that, either. *shrug*

10) Play any instruments?

i sing mostly well, and play a bit of guitar, bass, piano, and a VERY small bit of mandolin (though i think i need a refresher on the basics!!) right now, my main focus is keyboards/synth for Electric Doormat selfless plug here.

11) Favorite types of music?

i cannot STAND rap or r&b. other than that, i have a pretty open mind for stuff, though i generally tend to lean more towards stuff considered "power pop". my top five favorite bands:

sloan
better than ezra
nickel creek
ok go
jellyfish

12) What makes YOU special?

most days, i would like to believe that i can find humor in just about anything (it's what's kept me sane a lot of the time...) i am also a Finder of Things.

we are the same age.
i have things to be found at my house, do you work off a sixth sense, or do you have to have a memory for where the things may have been lost?
aubkabob
Jun. 8th, 2007 08:50 pm (UTC)
I wonder about that sometimes. Sometimes, it's totally a random memory, but sometimes I think it's a bit more, as my "superhero power" works in places I've never been, too.
