Random questions to fill space and time
In which V. has been on vacation for 2 1/2 weeks, and feels a need to post something here, but is not motivated to create a new original post, so she answers some questions that were emailed to her by K., and also constructs an awkward run-on sentence.

whats your name spelt backwards? .V
What did you do last night? Caught up on a lot of TV (Dr. Who, Torchwood, etc), ate spaghetti, played some Wii.
The last thing you downloaded onto your computer? The Safari browser.
Have you ever licked a 9 volt battery? No. Why? Should I? Do people do this? Is this a thing that is done?
Last time you swam in a pool? Last summer, I guess.
What are you wearing? Lederhosen. No, I kid. Jeans, t-shirt. The usual.
How many cars have you owned? Two. 1987 Honda Accord, 2000 Ford Focus. I much preferred the Honda.
Type of music you dislike most? Gangster rap.
Are you registered to vote? Yes.
Do you have cable? Affirmative.
What kind of computer do you use? I built this computer myself, fool. It's a SuperV 2008.
Ever made a prank phone call? Sure, back in the day.
You like anyone right now? I like most people, until they piss me off.
Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving? No. But I would go shark diving in one of those cages.
Furthest place you ever traveled? Amsterdam. But I don't know if that counts, because I was only in the airport.
What's your favorite comic strip? It pains me to admit that I used to like For Better Or For Worse until just recently when the author gave up and started resorting to reposts of old material.
Do u know all the words to the national anthem? I know the first verse. And I know that "u" is actually a three-letter word, spelled y-o-u.
Shower, morning or night? Morning, as per routine. But additional showers may follow, depending on when I go to the gym.
Best movie you've seen in the past month? I am not entirely sure that I've seen any really great movies in the past month. Good ones, sure. And a couple of questionable ones. Um... it's probably going to be the original Thai version of Shutter. I also saw the American remake a few days later. Don't bother with the remake. Never bother with the remakes.
Favorite pizza toppings? Black olives, mushrooms.
Chips or popcorn? Depends on my mood. Probably popcorn.
What cell phone provider do you have? I'm on Tracfone, bitches. Prepaid all the way.
Have you ever smoked peanut shells? Seriously? People do this? OMG.
Have you ever been in a beauty pageant? Nope. I was nominated for Homecoming Queen once though.
Orange Juice or apple? I like both. And I particularly like a pineapple-orange-banana blend.
Who were the last people you sat at lunch with? I had lunch with M. at McAllister's Deli on Friday.
favorite chocolate bar? I dunno. I don't eat a lot of chocolate bars. I do eat a lot of peanut M&Ms.
Who is your longest friend and how long? That would be K. We met when we were four. So, um... 28-29 years now.
Last time you ate a homegrown tomato? Last summer. My next door neighbor has a rad vegetable garden.
Have you ever won a trophy? Why yes, yes I have.
Favorite arcade game? Arcade games, as in games one plays in actual arcades, as opposed to console games? DISKS OF TRON, y'all.
Ever ordered from an infomercial? No. I was briefly tempted by Debbie Myers' Green Bags. But then I heard that even though the food looks fresh, it's still rotten on the inside. Also, Debbie Myers kind of scares me a little.
Sprite or 7-UP? Honestly? I can't tell the difference.
Have you ever had to wear a uniform to school/work? Yes, and I hope never to do so ever again.
Last thing you bought at Walgreens? I remember this. Umm... It was just a couple of weeks ago. Wait. It's coming to me. Nail polish? Toothpaste? Dang. I can't remember at all. Either nail polish or toothpaste. Probably nail polish.
Ever thrown up in public? Yeah, right in front of Boots on Lowestoft High Street. I had some kind of tummy bug. People were surprisingly really nice and helpful about it, though.
Would you prefer being a millionaire or finding true love? Can't a girl have both?
Do you believe in love at first sight? No way. Love takes time.
SPONGEBOB OR JIMMY NEUTRON? Who the hell is Jimmy Neutron? Can I choose Hong Kong Phooey?
Did you have long hair as a young kid? I don't remember.
What message is on your voicemail machine? I still haven't figured out how to set up my voicemail. Not that I'd use it anyway.
Where would you like to go right now? The library, but it's raining and I'm kind of tired.
Whats the name of your pet? I have three. Lucy, Bear, and Boogers McBoo.
What kind of back pack do you have, and what's in it? I have a navy blue LL Bean backpack, and it's full of my yoga gear.
What do you think about most? I dunno. How much people suck, I guess.
