So, first off, I got tagged by to do a 75 Questions thing, so if you just want to skip the update and go read that, it's going to be below.
In other news, I've got a house! So, those of you who aren't familiar with mine and my family's situation for the past couple of years, almost two years ago now, we got a forclosure notice. We packed everything up while my parents tried to save the house and/or look for a new one, but almost EXACTLY a year later(like, maybe a FEW days off) we got the news that we were going to have to leave by a couple of days later or else there would be a forced eviction. So, frazzled, we worked day after day, moving things out of the house and we moved into our sister's(and her husband's) tiny house. We have lived here, very stressfully might I add, for roughly seven months now, and we have FINALLY found a home for ourselves.
We were hoping for a three bedroom at most and maybe a TINY bit of living space and some space to store boxes. But you know what we got? A freaking TARDIS house! Yes, the house that I mentioned in my last journal entry is, in fact, the house we're moving into. If you haven't already guessed. I just didn't want to get your guys's or my hopes up in case it didn't work out.
But, yeah. We got the keys yesterday and moved in some boxes, and today my mom left to go sign some papers and look around the house with the landlord/lady to look for things that could be fixed in exchange for rent(and there is a LOT of things that need to be fixed, so fingers crossed, everyone!). We're hoping to be fully moved in by Sunday, and by that time be able to get a tree. As I'm hoping to get a camera for Christmas, I'll probably take a video of the house and post it on... YouTube or something and give it to you guys. Though, the camera I want doesn't have sound when you record, so there's that.
So, don't expect me to be on, like, AT ALL for the next few days. Maybe even a week! I don't know. Just expect me not to be on, okay? Bye guys!
1. Do you snore?
Or so I've been told.
2. Are you a lover or a fighter?
A lover, but don't underestimate my will to fight.
3. What's your worst fear?
Being alone and/or unloved... And ants.
4. As a kid, where you a lego maniac?
Nah. I occasionally brought out our TINY tub of mismatched lego pieces to play with my sister, but I'd have to say that I'm MUCH more of a legohead now than I was as a kid.
5. What do you think of "reality" tv?
It's idiotic and most of it is legitimately scripted.
6. Do you chew on your straws?
Even ones that aren't even mine.
7. Were you a cute baby?
Hmm. Personally, I don't think so, but to other people I probably was.
8. Is the single life for you?
To quote a random fact, "When you're single, all you see is happy couples, and when you're in a relationship all you see are happy singles." That answer your question?
9. What colour is your keyboard?
Well, my KEYS are black, but the little area around them is a sort of grayish blue.
10. Do your sing in the shower?
If I think I'm relatively alone, yes.
11. Have you ever sky-dived before?
No, but I think it would be fun.
12. Any secret talents?
I'm fairly bendy, and the songs I sing best are really sombre and are usually slow-paced.
13. What's your ideal vacation spot?
Somewhere with a forest AND a beach. Ehm, but as long as I'm with my family, then it's all good. I guess I can't really give an educated guess because I've only ever been to a nearby beach for vacation.
14. Can you swim?
I used to take swimming lessons and everything! But I haven't swam for a long time now, so I wouldn't know how well I'd do.
16. Have you seen the movie "Donnie Darko"?
No, but I've heard of it.
17. Do you care about the ozone?
18. How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?
I once heard that, on average, it takes 1,320 licks to get to the center. Huh. Who knew.
19. Can you sing the alphabet backwards?
Lulno. I can barely sing it forward. XD
20. Have you ever been on an airplane?

21. Are you a single child?
Nah. I have five sisters, a brother-in-law and a brother-in-law-to-be.
22. Do you prefer electronic or manual pencil sharpeners?
It really depends. There are certain manual ones that work just like electronic ones except that you have to crank it, and I liked those quite a bit. So I guess Manual?
23. What's your stand on hunting?
I'm fine with it as long as it's not for sport. Someday I hope to be able to hunt deer and the like, not for sport or for fun, but for the meat and maybe even the skin/antlers(because I don't like to waste, and we can make some neat shit out of that).
24. Is marriage in your future?
I hope so.
25. Do you like your handwriting?
I once practiced my handwriting for a week so that I wouldn't suck when I had to sign for my ID... My sisters called my handwriting "cute" and "like a child's"... Thanks, Bekki. What a bloody confidence booster YOU are.
26. What are you allergic to?
Ehm, actually, when I drink non-herbal-natural-hippie tea, my throat will sometimes start to close up. Like, if I gulp it down thens sometimes I just need to STOP and wait until I can start breathing easily again before I can continue drinking it.
27. When was the last time you said 'I love you?'
...I think it might have been yesterday, to my mom.
28. Is Tupac still alive?
29. Do you cry at weddings?
I've only ever been to two, and the first one I can hardly remember, so... No? I usually get yelled at for walking off or doing something I'm not supposed to, and God knows that brings me to tears sometimes.
30. How do you like your eggs?
Over-medium(NOT sunny-side up) or scrambled. Though, I'm not too picky as long as it's thoroughly cooked.
31. Are blondes dumb?
Uhm, no. Your hair color doesn't determine your intelligence.
32. Where does the other sock end up?
In the floorboards. (I'm not joking. When cleaning my room, I once found a HOARD of missing socks in my floorboards.)
33. What time is is it?
Pelvic thrust time.
4. Do you have a nickname?
Yes. Let's see... Snickers, Lastryric, Crystal, Finetta, Finn, Jo, Jo-Jo, Josie(don't ever call me that, bw), Joy... Among other things.
35. Is McDonald's disgusting?
Yes. Well, their chicken poppers are good, and if you get their fries either REALLY early in the morning or late at night, then those are good. Otherwise, yes. I really don't like them.
36. When was the last time you were in a car?
Last night. WHEN WE WERE MOVING BOXES! *fist-pump*
37. Do you prefer baths or showers?
Showers, though nothing can beat a good bath every now and then.
38. Is Santa Claus real?
Nah. My parents never raised me to believe in him... though I have had some VERY vivid dreams involving him.
39. Do you like having you neck kissed?
I've never had my neck kissed, so I wouldn't know.
40. Are you afraid of the dark?
41. What are you addicted to?
Many things. So many things. You have no idea.
42. Crunchy or creamy peanut butter?
43. Can you crack your neck?
I cracked my neck once or twice, but it's always been by accident.
44. Have you ever ridden in an ambulance?
No... Well... No, no, actually.... Well... I don't know, honestly. Probably not, but I've been to the hospital so many times that it IS possible.
45. How many times have you brushed your teeth today?
46. Is drug free the way to be?
Unless it's drugs that you honest to God need for some bodily... thing.
47. Are you a heavy sleeper?
I thought I was... But then I had to sleep in the living room of a very busy house for seven months. Turns out, I'm not.
48. What colour are your eyes?
50. Do you like your life?
I guess. I mean, there are definitely some things that I would curse to hell, but I do have a pretty good life.
51. Who's better: Stone Cold or The Rock?
52. Are you psychic?
53. Have you read "Catcher in the Rye"?
I actually have, surprisingly enough. I mean, I never finished it, but I still read a few chapters, and it was the most BORING thing I have EVER read in my ENTIRE life.
54. Do you play any instruments?
I used to be able to play the guitar... I also used to be able to play the piano... No. I don't.
55. Have you ever stolen money?
Eeeh, yeah. But I gave it back.
56. Can you snowboard?
Haha! No, you silly person.
57. Do you like camping?
I've only ever been camping in mine and my friend's backyards(though, to be fair, their backyard is HUGE and quite camp-worthy. They even had a creek and a tree-bridge over said creek to a mysterious field with a single, tiny shack in it that looked strangely like Hagrid's hut), so... I guess? Does that even count as real camping?
58. Do you snort when you laugh?
59. Do you believe in magic?
To a point.
60. Are dogs a man's best friend?
61. You believe in divorce?
Not really, but I guess it's much better to divorce your partner instead of staying together but hating each other and/or it all turning into domestic violence. Though, I also think people should think about the person they're about to marry and whether or not they want to spend the rest of their lives with them BEFOREHAND, instead of hating them in a year or two and wanting a divorce.(That's right, I'm looking at YOU, celebrities.)
62. Can you do the moonwalk?
My friend Carlye tried to teach me once, but I can't really do it well.
63. Do you make a lot of mistakes?
Well, duh. Everyone makes mistakes, and at the end of the day they usually mount up to a lot.
64. Is it cold outside today?
Extremely. It's almost winter and the skies are clear, which means EVERYTHING IS FREEZING!
65. What was the last thing you ate?
A slice of tomato.
66. Do you wear nail polish?
Not usually, but if I was actually capable of putting it on without having it go all over the REST of my finger, and if I didn't constantly chew my nails down to stubs then I would imagine I would quite enjoy it.
67. Have you ever been kissed?
Yeah... Though I was, like, four or five and I don't remember shit of it. But apparently there's a picture... somewhere.
68. What's the most annoying TV commercial?
Most TV commercials are annoying, so I would never be able to decide.
69. Do you shop at American Eagle?
Nah, but I imagine that if I ever went there I might want to get something.
70. Favourite song at the moment?
Uh... Various Christmas songs... And, surprisingly enough, rap. Like, for some reason, lately I've been listening to a lot of rap. The Mac N Cheese rap. Ridin' Dirty... There was one more, but I honestly don't care enough to remember.
71. Do you like your job?
I don't have a job anymore...
72. Do you like your classes in school?
I don't go to school, and I don't think I ever want to.
73. How do you like your meat cooked?
Depends on the meat.
74. Do you like these surveys.
*Shrug* They're fun enough, especially when you're bored/don't have anything else to do.
75. Do you know how to tag three peoples?
Obviously. I mean, I've only been on this website for like a year.
76. Why did the Chicken Cross the road?
How would I know? I'm no chicken, and as far as I know, no one has yet been able to communicate successfully with one.
I'll also be doing another Questions thing in a bit, so look out for that.
