A meme

As seen at New Kid on the Hallway.

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
It probably had to do with what I needed to do to make myself presentable for church.

2. How much cash do you have on you?
$19 in bills. $2.95 in change.

3. What's a word that rhymes with TEST?
Best.

4. Planet?
Mars or Jupiter, but the Gustav Holst ones.

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list?
One of my officemates.

6. What is your favorite ring on your phone?
The standard. I used to have the ringtone set on a snippet of something classical, but I switched it back to the default ring because it was getting old.

7. What shirt are you wearing?
A sweater, cut like a turtleneck. The color I can only really describe as plum.

8. What do you label yourself?
Complicated. Arachnophobic. Academically oriented. Empathetic. Bookish. Rather obsessive about topics I care about. Bilingual. Christian. (These are only a few.)

9. Name the brand of shoes you've recently worn.
Dansko.

10. Bright or Dark Room?
Bright, if it can be achieved. In my apartment, given the state of the wiring, it cannot.

11. What were you doing at midnight last night?
Being a good graduate student and reading. I was listening to a classical playlist from my iTunes library, as well.

12. What did your last text message you received on your cell say?
I don't use text messages — the only ones I ever get are junk.

13. Where is your nearest 7-11?
I honestly have no idea.

14. What's a saying that you say a lot?
"Kyrie eleison; Christe eleison; Kyrie eleison." This means "Lord, have mercy; Christ, have mercy; Lord, have mercy." This is mostly something I mutter to myself when I'm stressed or worried. Saying this usually has a calming effect on me. I don't think many people have overheard me say this, but I do say it often.

15. Who told you they loved you last?
My mom, when we spoke on the phone the other day.

16. Last furry thing you touched?
A feather duster, when I was cleaning part of the apartment last Tuesday (the thing doesn't actually contain any feathers, but I can't think of any other term for that object).

17. How Many Drugs Have You Done In The Past three Days?
None, unless we count caffeinated beverages.

18. How many rolls of film do you need to get developed?
None, but I sure need to upload photos to the Kodak Gallery and buy around 30 prints.

19. Favorite age you have been so far?
The age I am now. Ask me a year from now or five years from now, and I'll probably say the age I am then. I have a complete and total lack of nostalgia about being younger.

20. Your worst enemy?
Satan. After him, Al Davis.

21. What is your current desktop picture?
A snapshot of myself and two of my siblings that was taken last year. In this picture, my sister is making me laugh and my brother is looking rather dashing, if apparently oblivious to what is going on between the people on either side of him.

22. What was the last thing you said to someone?
"That's not a problem."

23. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly, which would you choose?
However unlikely it would be for me to be offered one million dollars, it is theoretically possible. Flying is not. Therefore, I'll choose flying.

24. Do you like someone?
No comment.

25. The last song you listened to?
"The Battle." It's from the soundtrack for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
