Since I was mentioned a lot in me hubby, SovietFox's journal... here is a 'quiz':
1.) Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.
"asu sae furaba... If they but fall tomorrow" from "Kokin Wakashuu" (an anthology of over 1000 poems from Heian Japan), poem number 20
The full poem reads "Today there fell rains/of spring, season recalling/tautened birchwood bows./If they but fall tomorrow/ we wil be picking young greens."
2.) Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What can you reach?
A window/wall, I can't even technically stretch all the way.
3.) What is the last thing you watched on TV?
I don't like watching normal TV. So Netflix and Anime
4.) Without looking guess what time it is? 5.) Now look at the clock. What is the actual time?
8pm (actual is 7:49pm)
6.) With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
Sovi talking to his colonel friend, keys and mouse clicks of his, and my music
7.) When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
Went out to eat ramen and thrift shop today
8.) Before you started this survey, what did you look at?
This survey, reading over it... and the intranets
9.) What are you wearing?
Jeans and a grey hoodie and socks
10.) Did you dream last night?
I did, but of what it was I cannot remember
11.) When did you last laugh?
Full out laughing, a few days ago, watching Sovi play Assassin's Creed
12.) What are one the walls you are in?
Sense this question does not make, therefore I answer it not.
13.) Seen anything weird lately?
I have seen the Riddler riding a motorcycle today... I cannot think of anything else of the top of my head
14.) What do you think of this quiz?
This is a quiz? And yet, there seem to be no incorrect answers.
15.) What was the last film you saw?
The Extraordinary Adventures of Miss Adele Blanc-Sec, on Netflix, showed my Mommy because it's hilarious
16.) If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
I'd move out of this godforsaken state. I'd pick someplace to live and buy a house. And I'd buy a house for my mom and dad somewhere they'd rather be. And then I'd buy books. And then I'd probably still have enough money to make charitable donations to actual worthy causes, like Project for Awesome and stuff.
17.) Tell me something about you that I don't know?
Who is this 'you'? And do you not already know so much about me, dear Sovi?
18.) If you could change one thing about the world.
Um, that's why there's the projects to decrease World Suck. The problem is, I don't think anyone really can change the world. I study history and it's constant spirals of the same sorts of things that happen...
19). What do you want to learn in the future?
Language-related, history, mythology, folklore, etc. The usual, for me.
20.) George Bush:
Has been a fairly common name in the past century.
21.) Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her?
Honestly, I have so many girls' names that I love. And both Sovi and I have tons of names in our family history that would be fantastic to try out. I think it's honestly more about what will suit said little girl if/when she does come into the world. After all, my parents have said that sometimes the names you pick out in advance fly out the window when you actually see the child in your arms.
22.) Imagine your first child is a boy, what do you call him?
I'm rather partial to James with the nickname "Jamey" if he must have one. But again, Sovi and I shall have to discuss that when that time comes along.
23.) Would you ever consider living abroad?
A thousand times yes. I've honestly thought of it all my life -- Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Germany, Italy, Norway, Denmark, Sweden... I'd be okay with all of them. I had thought of Russia before, but I'm not so sure with how weird the government there's been recently.
24.) What do you want God to say when you reach the pearly gates?
I don't imagine pearly gates, rather I'd meet Him in a garden. And I'd like Him to say "Welcome home."
25.) Tag six people who must also do this in THEIR journal:
Um, tag? I don't know. If people read this/feel like doing this...
