What is your first memory of being truly happy?

What is your first memory of being truly sad?

Describe what a perfect day is for you.

What's your favorite comfort food?

Do you prefer to sleep buried in blankets or with minimals coverings?

What are you reading right now?

LOL I read that as "What are you wearing right now?" Um... Stewie pajama pants, burgundy tshirt, sweatshirt jacket type thing, braids, and a kerchief?

My other answers to the REAL questions...

- I have a lot of memories of being VERY small. I love my brother to death and he's one of my bestest friends, but the years of my life when I was still an only child were filled with great happiness. Step daddy was at work all the time, so it was always Mom and I doing stuff together - playing in the yard, picking dandilions and violets, raking leaves, drawing and coloring, etc. Weekends were spent at my dad's, which I loved in a different way - a way that I can see now as an adult were mostly material. My live in family with Mom was poor but happy, my Dad was well-off and would show his "love" by buying me whatever I wanted. Sure, there were things that were not normal for a childhood, like the fact that Mom had many parties at her house filled with beer, booze, and pot, but overall, it was a great place to be.

- I wanted to say when I was four and my grandmother died, but I think it was the day before my fourth birthday. Mom came into my bedroom to find me absolutely SOBBING. When asked what was wrong, I replied "I'll never be three again!!!" I remember sitting there and the realization coming over me that this was the last time I would EVER be this age, even if I lived until the end of the world, that no matter what I did in life, I would never be at THIS SPOT, AT THIS AGE, DOING THIS THING, and that the moment was totally fleeting.

- I love and need pajama days. If I don't get at least one pajama day a week - a day where I accomplish close to nothing and am in my pjs all day, not leaving the house, not hanging out with others, but having quality ME time... I feel like I don't have time off.

- Soft cookies, preferably chocolate chip.

- Even in summer, I swathe myself in a ton of blankets. I love the comfy feeling of it all.

- Right now, I'm halfway through The Amber Spyglass, which is the third book in the Philip Pullman series that starts with The Golden Compass. My roommate stanieldaniel recommended the series to me and I'm finally getting around to finishing it.

My dreams as a child were very... unfocused. I had nothing in my sites for my future other than being able to go to bed whenever I want and make decisions all by myself. I toyed with the dream of being a school bus driver for a couple of years, as I wanted to choose a profession that I hadn't heard other people regurgitate repeatedly. Everyone wanted to be a doctor or fireman, wouldn't there be a shortage of school bus drivers?

If we move into the teen years, from the age of 13, all I wanted to do was be a rock star. (Vicki Peterson of The Bangles was key in making this decision. I wanted to so very much be like her.) I held onto this dream well into my 30s, when I finally got to experience it... and realized that I .. really didn't want this as a dream at all. It was a very humbling experience.

I still daydream about it sometimes :)

I have one pet, a a dilute calico cat by the name of Little Bitchy Baby Bacci Arabella Butterfly Moon-Kitten Spaghetti Chewbacca Mother's Day, or Bacci (pronounced botch-ee) for short.

Bacci means "kisses" in Italian.

She's very... psycho. Hates men and loud people, and will turn feral at a moment's notice, if provoked by walking towards her too quickly, raising your voice, making strange noises, etc. She is also VERY protective of me, hissing, screaming and attacking anyone who walks too close to me.

She's mah girl.

What made you want to be a nurse?

Do you want to have Aubkababies when you grow up and marry an Aubkaboy?

What's your favorite song ever?

What's your favorite color?

What's your favorite book?

Did you know 2/3 of MST3K now have a website called rifftracks.com where you can download mp3s that sych up to DVDs as you watch them, and in these MP3s they rip on the movie as you watch it? And that one of the ones available is Roadhouse?

- My initial decision to become a nurse... I realized that I loved certain aspects of my retail job - helping others, not having to pick out what to wear every day, being on my feet. As retail was beginning to bore me, I started looking at other professions. I had worked my entire life, you see, on the belief that the only "quality" job was one behind a desk, that anything else was considered beneath what was considered important. Having to get a job at OfficeMax because I couldn't find a "real" job completely changed my view of this. I started looking around at different professions that had what I wanted: job security, a uniform, being on my feet and helping others... and logically came to nurse. It's just peachy that you get paid BANK along with all of that, PLUS you end up helpful to society. I greatly fear being involved in or seeing something like a massive car accident, and not being able to act in order to save lives and such. I had put my dream on the back burner for quite awhile, but in going through everything that I did with Mom recently, it helped to rekindle the desire to do it. It also helped that there's all sorts of REALLY COOL TOYS THAT BLIP AND BLEEP AND SAVE LIVES and such.

- For the majority of my adulthood, I had viewed having kids as something I wanted NOTHING of. Pregnancy really creeps the hell out of me, having this human being growing inside of you and ... it's a parasite!!! I also viewed motherhood as having to completely give up my independence and my ability to live my life for ME. However, maybe because I'm now 34 and my biological clock is ticking, now I see it not as... an inevitability, but as a possibility. If I happen to meet someone and we loll in fuv and I become pregnant? Great. If we don't have children, fine. If I spend the rest of my life an old spinster, that's cool, too. I guess I've come to terms with the fact that perspectives change over the years and to never say never.

Hee, I decided to respond in two separate responses as I wasn't sure how big the last one was getting!

- Ugh, favorite song ever. That really changes from year to year. Right now, I'm adoring "Soul Meets Body" by Death Cab because of its perfection. Ben and Chris know that in many cases, less means more, and it's absolutely beautiful in its simple complexity. Plus, the lyrics are absolutely stunning.

- My favorite color has been dark purple for my entire lifetime, I feel almost a spiritual connection to it. Hate lavender, but love dark, royal purple. I especially love it in combinations with black, green, and red.

- Favorite book is hard, too. I guess I will say Wishsong of Shannara by Terry Brooks because of what a landmark book it was in my life. It was the first fantasy genre that I had ever read. I checked it out from the library on a whim one summer... and immediately came down with chickenpox. (At age 14, it was one of the most miserable experiences of my life!) All I could do was lay inside and read, and OMG, THERE'S ELVES AND GNOMES AND AND AND.... I was in AWE.

- I DID know about Rifftracks, though I haven't checked any of them out! Roadhouse is such an awesome movie in and of itself because of its awfulness!

- Because I ended up here. Now that I'm actually here, I cannot see myself living anywhere else, except maybe P-town. I've lived in sooo many different places throughout my lifetime, and this is the first place I have ever been that automatically and thoroughly felt like HOME.

- I've considered picking up my guitar(s) again. I sort of miss the emotional outlet that I get from strumming and singing from the soul. I used to only play because I felt I HAD to, in order to become good enough to perform in front of others. I think I would have been able to accomplish so much more in music if I had done it because I WANT to, instead of HAD to.

- Never named the sisters, other than to call them The Sisters. The question made me think of high school, though. I matured MUCH earlier than my other female friends, which resulted in all sorts of comments about my "mountains". On break at school one day, I picked something off of my shirt, making a comment about removing something from Mt. Rushmore, and my guy friend retorted with "Yeah, how many faces have been on them?"

Hmmmm... what about most embarrassing moment?
aubkabob
May. 8th, 2009 08:15 pm (UTC)
Hrm, there's embarrassing, and there's humiliating.

I guess it's the time that ... I had just gone to Job Corps, was 18 and away from home for the first time in my life, living in a dorm with a ton of girls. We had GGI's, or Guided Group Interactions, where we would all get together and get stuff off of our chest in a healthy and constructive manner. I had been there only a couple of days. When you arrive, you're given to one of the other girls as a "little sister", and they show you the ropes of campus. I had known a girl who had been at the same campus, so I tossed her name out to my big sister. Sadly, my big sister HATED the girl I knew, and immediately became a giant bitch to me.

Anyhoo, during this particular GGI, she started off the meeting by turning to me and stating loudly "Your feet stink. I can smell their rot across the entire floor. You need to do something about it, as the stench makes me want to vomit." I was shocked into silence, not knowing how to respond. I just remember looking around the circle and seeing every single girl in the dorm staring at me with a blank stare. I was mortified. Later on, girls came to me in ones and twos, saying that the other girl had been out of line, that they hadn't ever smelled anything bad. I was hurt that they supposedly all felt this way, but none had come to my defense.

I'm now 34 years old and still have a complex about the possibility of my feet stinking.

tell me a story about your empathy.
aubkabob
May. 8th, 2009 08:18 pm (UTC)
I've always felt that I've been an empathic individual. I have to be very careful when going to certain functions, as I seem to pick up on others emotions quite easily. I've slowly learned to be able to block myself from it, which is useful in most situations, like when my band played a benefit concert for a girl who had been killed shortly before her 18th birthday. I could have cried the entire time, but kept having to stop and build up mental walls. Beer helped, too ;) I've also sobbed incessantly at funerals for people I never met, etc.

I've been thinking about this a lot lately, and I cannot see myself living anywhere but where I currently am, unless it's to finally move across the river and live in Portland instead of Vancouver.

This place is truly my home, and it would take a great feat to get me to change that.

Loaded question or not...
What would you like as a present?
aubkabob

Re: Loaded question or not...
I always like presents from the heart, things that were made with me in mind, or something that I can totally USE. Over the last couple of years, I've become quite disillusioned with all that is the gift-giving holidays, and don't see a point of stressing out so that I can go spend money I don't have on things that someone may or may not use. Many of the gifts that I've been given during the holidays are still in the bag that I brought them home in.
