Chinese Fireball Oooh

Six strange things about Miss Sophia

So, anyaxstrindberg has tagged me on the "six strange things" meme, which goes like this:

The 1st player of this "game" starts with the topic "6 weird habits/things about yourself" and people who get tagged need to write a journal about their 6 weird habits/things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their comments and tell them to read yours....

My six strange things:

1. I can raise my eyebrows independently. I actually spent quite a while perfecting this move. I'm not really sure what the purpose was, but hey, I think it's sort of nifty.

2. When I'm concentrating on something, I chew my tongue. I don't draw blood or anything, but I just sort of drag the sides of it between my teeth. It's a lame habit and looks stupid, and my husband always makes fun of me for it, so I'm trying to quit. Easier said than done, of course.

3. I never went to kindergarten.

4. I speak Chinese and can do Buddhist chants in Pali.

5. If I miss even the first few seconds of a movie or a TV show, I will refuse to watch the rest. I must watch things all the way through.

6. I type 90 to 100+ words per minute.

OK, I'm not gonna tag anyone in particular, since LJ's being a bitch tonight. But hey, feel free to consider yourself tagged and do the meme! :)
Voldemort is Bush! Aaah!

More burning answers to your syphilitic questions

Again, more syphilis answers, this time from gunderpants:

1. What singer/band gets you in the mood?
I assume you mean in the mood for some smexin'. I'd say Rufus Wainwright, but that wouldn't be fair, because the only person I'd be thinking about the whole time would be hot-ass Rufus, so...yeah, maybe not. Dave Matthews Band's "Crash Into Me" is ultrasexy. Franz Ferdinand's "Michael" is OMGHOT (because of the boylove, of course). I've got memories of making out to Culture Beat's "Mr. Vain." And then, of course, there's Coldplay, which also inspires my writing. I'm not sure who the top prize goes to. To be random, I think I'll call it a tie between Green Day and random clubby music, because riling me up is the best way to get me down. The romantic stuff doesn't cut it for me, I'm afraid. That's just like trying too hard. But if you get me all rioty or dancey, then my energy level goes up and I'm good for some action.

2. Favourite writing beverage?
Grande sweetened iced coffee with half and half from Starbucks. Soothes the soul. Although Gun, you produce so much good shit under the influence that I'm thinking I may have to start partaking as well. I've got some sweetass highland cream (the Scottish version of Irish cream) hanging out here...grapefruit vodka...some other good stuff. Hmmmmm.... Maybe I should have some shots before my final exam tomorrow. It could only help, right? ;)

3. Your favourite politician from the other side?
My favorite likable politician would be John McCain, because he's had some decent ideas, and he seems like someone who at least doesn't spew bullshit every time he opens his mouth. But I've gotta hand it to Bush and Cheney. They make themselves look like assholes without anyone else needing to point it out. Sucks for us as citizens, but it definitely makes it a lot easier to wank. (Apologies to anyone on my flist who doesn't agree with me. It's just my opinion, and if you like these guys, I certainly mean nothing personal to you by my comments. I think we can get along anyway, despite our political differences. If you're a Slytherin, on the other hand.../kidding)

4. Favourite play?
It's a musical, and it's actually a specific production of that musical. A couple of years ago, a very good friend of mine from high school starred in a Broadway revival and national touring production of Big River, which is the story of Huckleberry Finn. The musical itself is really amazing, with some very poignant songs and strong messages about racism and the difference between right and wrong. The special thing about this production was that half the cast, including my friend, was deaf, and so the entire play was done in sign AND voice, with all actors signing and hearing actors doing the vocals for deaf actors. It was a mind-blowing experience. And my friend was AWESOME.

5. Favourite word?
Well, if you go by frequency of use, it'd be good old "fuck." But I'm quite fond of "wank." There's just something really delicious about that word, and I'm glad we Amurricans are starting to pick it up.

If someone wants me to ask questions, I'm game for it. Don't inundate me, though. I'm supposed to be studying for finals. ;)
