1. Travel - Looks like my reasons to visit Texas are growing. What time of year should I travel down there?
Early Fall. Like...September/October. Before that is too hot, and after that is too cold. Plus the scenery is gorgeous.
2. Religion - What has been most helpful to you about your religion?
I would say a sense of purpose. I might have "mainstream" goals in my life, but I know that all of it means nothing if I am not spiritually motivated as well. My greatest goals in my life have to do with my religion.
3. Family - Do you consider people not related by blood or marriage part of your family?
Yes. Those people are few and far between, but there are a few of them.
4. Love - Does love require romance?
If you're talking about non-platonic love between a man and a woman, then yes. Definitely. But my idea of romance rarely involves candy and flowers and candlelit dinners.
5. Sex - Does sex require romance?
No. I think, for me, sex requires love, but some of the best sex I've ever had was utterly unromantic.
6. Hobbies - What's the strangest hobby you've ever picked up?
Strangest? I dunno. Rarest would probably be Henna. I have done henna before at Penn State events. I haven't done it in public for a long time, though.
7. Pets - I know you have a cat. Any others?
No, Rowan is my sole baby at the moment. I was thinking about getting some fish, but I just don't have time.
8. Friendship - How does a friend become a friend?
I don't have many friends. I try so very hard at friendship, and I almost never get the same effort back from people. So, I'd say a friend becomes a friend through the following process:
1. We have to respect each other, and like spending time together.
2. You have to be trustworthy.
3. You cannot be excessively flaky.
4. You cannot ever ask me for a loan, except in dire circumstances.
That's pretty much it. I'm sure I could think of more if pressed, but to be honest, I don't really enjoy the company of most people. I am very picky about friends.
9. Literature - Do you prefer poetry or prose?
Oh gosh. You're making me pick? I would have to say I prefer prose that sounds like poetry. Ha.
10. Movies - What genre of movie do you love most, and which will I never convince you to watch?
The genre of movie that I enjoy the most is..."Historical Fiction." I don't know if that is technically a genre of film (I know it is a genre of novel) so that is why I put it in quotes. I can't really think of a genre that I will never watch. I will watch pretty much anything, as long as there are good people there to watch it with.
11. Home town - How is where you live now different from where you grew up?
Er. You'd have to specify. I grew up all over the world. California, Scotland, Pakistan, Qatar, PA, TX, and having visited many, many countries in between. So I'm not sure how to answer this question.
12. Physical Appearance - What do you look for in a potential date, physically?
1.Taller than me
2.Weighs more than me, but not overweight
3.Passably decent looking, but this varies so much from person to person that I can't really specify. I will say that I am unlikely to date a man who is a blonde.
5.He must smile more than he frowns, and not have an annoying laugh.
I can't think of anything else physical. It's the non-physical tests that men seem to fail more than the physical ones.
13. Volunteer Work - Ever regretted volunteering for something?
Hmmm. One time I volunteered to pick up pinecones for my dad when he said he'd pay us $.10 a pinecone. (okay, so I'm just using this as an excuse to tell the story, I know being paid is not volunteering) We had just moved to the farm in PA and they were all over our yard. I think my dad underestimated the drive I had to make money. When I was done, I counted the pinecones, and he ended up owing me over $200. He then said he was only going to pay me $.03 a pinecone. I did regret that, afterwards. Ha.
