I'm not unhappy. I just can't think of THE thing that make me happy all the time. Probably times when I can just relax with friends and not have to worry about anything. Those don't happen a lot. The relaxing with friends does, but I'm always worried because it usually means I'm not doing something else productive I should be doing.

How badly do you procrastinate?

It depends. I'm usually not that bad.

(as for happy/unhappy, my hormones play havoc with me, which means I'm unhappy, if not downright depressed, far too often)

Is there a place you would really like to live?

I really like living where I do, but I also would love Colorado or Asheville, North Carolina.

Do you ever feel as if you belong in a a different time period?

Not really. I sometimes think I would have been better off in the early 19th century or the late 12th century, but then I remember, Medicine! Sanitation! Dentistry! Central heating! Cheap food! and I calm down again.

Do you think the future will be better or worse than today? Not your future per se, but say 200 years from now.

Worse.

Although, maybe 200 years from now, Global Warming will have killed most of the human population, and the planet might be quite a nice place to live.

What's your favourite extinct animal? (not sure if Diri should answer that one )

Dodo Birds. I bet they were delicious. Just kidding! (Unless, of course, you believe in diricawls, in which case dodos aren't extinct. )

oh man.. such a long time ago. I can remember enjoying language class. And once I had a very funny history professor.



I don't swim. Should I be embarrased?

Nope. Think of all the people in Mongolia who'd have to be embarrassed if you were.

Would you name your daughter Zamzama?

Do you like Ian Dury? I just found out that Hugh Laurie's Myspace page has "Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick" playing on it, which is ubercool as far as I'm concerned.

I once dyed it really dark brown because I love that color and figured since my sister's was dark brown and my brother had almost black hair that it would look good. But I looked horrible in it. Absolutely horrible. I've learned my lesson about going darker. I've also had it reddish. Maybe someday I'll go blonde, but an ashy blonde. I haven't been that color since I was a toddler, though. Right now I'm happy with my natural medium brown. I figure I don't have that many years before the grays start so I may as well keep my natural hair color while I can.

Do you follow any professional sports?

No, I don't follow any professional sports, although I used to watch Wimbledon.

Well, I'm supposed to be losing weight now, and I'm eating chocolate biscuits, so I can't say I've figured that one out yet.

In actual fact, the dodo was noted by the Portuguese explorers who first encountered it to be oily and disagreeable. Take it as knowledge from personal experience.

Aw. That's sweet. But I linked to the site. Did you like it?

more generally, do you shout out your differences, or try to conceal them?

I didn't like the song, Diri, the saxophone got on my nerves! Liked the site, though.

I shout out my differences. Something I should learn to control, really. But at 39, fat chance

Do you give to charity? (it's Red Nose day today)

Oddly enough, I just did yesterday. It's not something I do usually, since I don't have much in the way of cash.

Hm. Oh well, I guess Ian is something of an acquired taste. I like his song "Spasticus Autisticus", because I'm both spastic and autistic. Ian, oddly enough, was neither, though he was disabled.

Do you consider the word "spaz" offensive?

Aha! Apparently it was the pigs and birds that the settlers brought with them who found dodos and their eggs delicious. Interesting!

Spaz ... Probably not the best word to use, I think. Used to be the expression "spaz out" basically meant "freak out," but it seems now that spaz is a derogatory like nerd, geek, or even retard. While I think people sometimes worry too much about what's offensive and what's not, I would probably avoid using the term.

When you see this icon, , do you think it's coffee or tea?

I think of coffee even though I don't drink it.

I went to school with a Spaz. That was his nickname, even the teachers called him that. I never thought it was that offensive, compared to other words, but we usually used it for people who had a lot of energy and were flighty.

What's the last DVD you purchased?

I bought "V for Vendetta" for my sister for Christmas.

When I hear someone reffered to as a "spaz" I usually assume they freak out a lot, usually over things that don't really matter. I can't say I use the word a lot, but I've never thought of it as derogatory.

what is the last song you remember hearing?

Bon Jovi's Living on a Prayer is on the radio right now. I'm not impressed.

Do you any plans for this weekend?

not particularly. I don't mind them, but I wouldn't list them among my favourite genre of books.

From where I'm sitting, it's already over, so, um... yes?

It's funny; St Paddy's Day doesn't really mean much over here, but then neither does St George's Day so go fig.

And it's "The Red Headed League," just so you know.

Do you find this whole "anti-ginger" prejudice a bit strange?

I've never heard of anything "anti-ginger".

What is the "anti-ginger" movement or prejudice?

I assume it means prejudice against redheads. My cat, who is red and whose name, oddly enough, is Ginger, would object.

Which do you prefer, the country or the city?
