Because everyone else did. - love like me ・ 日記
non solum memento mori, memento vivere sed etiam
Because everyone else did.
A - Accent: Depends on who I'm talking to. Most people from the South, Midwest, or West say I have very little accent at all. Sometimes this is because my accent shifts within the first 30 seconds of talking to them to match theirs. I don't know why this happens; it's not intentional. Yankees (sorry, Josh, this includes you) say I have a Southern accent.
B - Breakfast Item: I'm generally not hungry until nearly lunchtime, and even if I am I don't often wake up early enough to eat anything anyway. Coffee is a must. If I get food, it's usually some variation of scrambled eggs with bacon (sometimes turkey, sometimes regular).
C - Chore you Hate: All of them.
D - Dad's Name: Vic.
E - Essential everyday item: Deodorant.
F - Flavor Ice cream: Depends on my mood and the source. In general I don't eat ice cream unless it was someone else's idea and they're paying.
G - Gold or Silver: I prefer silver because it's less gaudy, but gold looks better on my olive complexion.
H - Hometown: If you mean where I was born, it's Lone Star, Texas. If you mean what I consider to be where I grew up, I don't think I have one. The reasons for that would require an entry unto themselves.
I - Insomnia: Sometimes. Lately, though, I've been so busy that any time I get a chance to sleep I'm so exhausted that I barely remember lying down.
J - Job Title: Relief Manager/Tech Support.
K - Kids: Depends on who the father is, if I ever find anyone worthy of considering for that.
L - Living arrangements: Me and a cat in an upstairs one-bedroom apartment.
M - Mom's Birthplace: Houston, Texas.
N - Number of significant others you've ever had: With hindsight, I'd say 2. If you'd asked me during all the relationships I've had, the cumulative answer would probably be 5.
O - Overnight hospital stays: Not aware of any, unless you count sleeping at the bedside of my great-aunt during one of her overnight hospital stays.
P - Phobia: While I am afraid of a great many things, I don't have any real phobias that I'm aware of.
Q - Queer?: Depends on what you mean... But I'm not gay.
R - Religious Affiliation: Organized religion is for peasants! (No offense to peasants)
S - Siblings: Two. A sister, two-and-a-half years younger, almost to the day, and a brother, nearly 9 years younger (surprise!).
T - Time you Wake up: After hitting the snooze button until I can't possibly hit it anymore and still be on time
U - Unnatural Hair Colours you've worn: I tried blue once, but it didn't show up very well even thought my hair was already quite a bit lighter than normal... Also, one year for Halloween (I had to have been in elementary school, but yes, this was my idea) I dressed up as a fragment of the Berlin Wall, and used some fluorescent hairspray on my clothes and hair to simulate graffiti. Yes, I've always been a nerd.
V - Vegetable you refuse to eat: This list is actually kinda long, and it's mainly due to allergies rather than dislike. The only vegetable that both wreaks havoc on my insides AND I don't like the taste of, though, is bell peppers.
W - Worst habit: Too many, really. I think the one that annoys me the most is apathy.
X - X-rays you've had: Teeth (obviously), both ankles, both elbows. Possibly abdominal as well, but really that had to be an MRI, didn't it. I don't remember much; the morphine had kicked in by then (ruptured ovarian cyst).
Y - Yummy: Potatoes, Pizza, Cadbury's Mini Eggs (which aren't available here until a couple weeks before Easter, dammit!)
Z - Zodiac sign: Aries, if we're talking Western. Chinese zodiac is Metal Rooster. Or Metal Cock. Or as I've been known to call it, Gundanium Wang.

Dumb baseball jokes aside, I haven't heard your voice in quite awhile, but from what I remember it's a very mild southern-ish/midwestern-ish accent which is hard to place.
Standing next to raditzsex, though, I think you picked up her Texas drawl a bit.

See, talking to you, to me I sounded horrifically Northern. I've got a friend now who has a Virginia accent, though, and I think that's probably what I acheived there.

My natural accent, if I was going to have one, would be East Texas. However, Val (and my dad and his parents, who I was around a lot growing up) has a West Texas accent. Really though, to figure out what sort of accent I really have, you'd probably have to tape me talking to the cat.
