Squatting in Waverly Hills...

je_reviens interviewed me ages ago... (*cough* 2006 *ahem*) so here are the questions/answers:

1) if you have a significant other, what is the thing that he/she does that makes you see red? if not, name a huge pet peeve of yours.
No significant other - in fact, I seem to have a two month curse when it comes to dating, so I haven't really been with anyone long enough to notice such things. HUGE silly pet peeve of mine is people who text/write and don't spell out words, i.e. ur for you're or your, 2 for to, etc. I also have this weeeeeird anger against scotch tape left randomly on stuff. I spend entirely too much time at work picking the stuff off of shelves and poles.

2) have you ever gotten fired from a job? what happened?
I've actually been fired from several. Wal*Mart I totally deserved, as I wrote my own schedule for two and a half MONTHS before they finally fired me. I lost a job in property management twice because I was a scape goat for people higher than me and was way too meek to stand up for myself. (I will NOT allow that to happen again.) I quit the job at the law firm shortly before I was fired by one of the partners. Because it was the third job in a stinking year I was getting forced from, I started really second-guessing myself and wondering what the hell I was doing wrong. The day that the partner gave me an idiotic ultimatum (he was bi-polar and not on meds, btw), every single coworker that was not a lawyer drug me to lunch and said that if he fired me, they would all walk out. (Half of them did - the other half were fired shortly after me.)

3) are you a neat person or a messy person? why?
I'm quite organized and uncluttered at work, but 180 degrees at home. I tend to get cluttery easily, and keep meaning to throw out 80% of what I own (well, donate) because I obviously don't NEED it. (Leaving Phoenix in such a short time with only what I could fit into my Jeep helped to teach me that.)

4) are you where you thought you would be by now [in life]? why or why not?
Oh, certainly not. I had figured that I would be a skinny, beautiful, talented rock star, or possibly a skinny, beautiful success in the business world. I have since decided that I do not want to be a part of the rockstar scene and hate desk jobs. I also had a plan of being married at 25 and having babies by 30. I know now that if I ever DO get married (gigantic "if"), it will be in a very non traditional relationship. I'm an oddball, afterall. The mommy thing also isn't for me. Granted, things change, so who knows?

5) go back in time 20 years. what would you do differently?
Hrm, 20 years would make me 14. I would tell myself to calm the fuck down, everyone else in the school is just as insecure as I am. I was EXTREMELY shy and introverted and did every single thing that I possibly could to disappear. I wish I would have done things that would have been FUN, like drama class, etc.

Any other questions?

a potentially unessessarily long reply with an illustration of a pet peeve of my own
HUGE silly pet peeve of mine is people who text/write and don't spell out words

I can't stand when people do this kind of thing with normal internet communication. If someone is too lazy to use a keyboard correctly (something that is, to be sure, very easy to use), then clearly s/he fails at the internets.

With that said, I admittedly use lazy text typing when it comes to phone messaging. My justification for this is twofold.

First, it takes an insanely long amount of time for me to type out clean, thoughtful, grammatical messages on my cheap cell phone because its number pad is awkward and obviously not designed for such a use. Lazy text writing is therefore a convenience to me and to the potentially impatient individual on its receiving end.

Second, since the only time I actually text message is when I'm responding to a text I've received (I never initiative text communication from my phone), no one can expect anything more from me than a lazy, "poorly written" text. Of course, I would much rather talk to someone face-to-face or over the phone, but this is the best compromise I can make when people aren't willing to do that.

Otherwise, I generally agree with your sentiments on this subject. :P

You know what I'm finding out is so many people who I think would be the last person to be shy describe themselves as awkward or not having friends..And they are all totally awesome people.
You would have been a blast in drama class. I hope one day maybe you could find the time to get involved in some form of theater or comedy, like comedy improv you'd be great at.

I'm right there with you on the pet peeves! Its so annoying to have messages like that in IMs and Emails and I try to constantly correct the kids I talk to that do that. They aren't in a hurry they don't need to do it anyway and they need to practice spelling. I also dislike obviously bad grammer and talking like an idiot just because you can. The tape thing gets me too.

As for number four, at least you have beautiful :)
