N is for Neville

get your bored and desperate right here!

Somehow, I keep filling out Jody's weekly surveys, even though I thought I kicked the habit years ago...I may  or may  not  skip the ones I've been asked a  frillion times.  Onward and Upward!

1) Do you have a crush on somebody?
In real life? No (which is boring. It's fun to have crushes!).  In fantasy land? All those dark-haired irish boys like Cillian Murphy and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and of course, Mr. Dominic Monaghan (where has he run off to on his little hobbit feet?)

2) Do you hate more than 3 people?:
Periodically.  The web designer at work is on my shit list.  As is  Con Ed.  But hating people for more than a day at  a time takes too much work. And I am  laaaazy.

3) How many houses have you lived in?:
Four houses (including the one in France), and three dorms.

4) Favorite candy?:
Chocolate wise, I'd say milky way midnight.  Otherwise, gross, sour gummy things like sqworms (despite the fact that Marie claims anything spelled with three consonants in a row is bad and wrong).

6) Have you ever tripped someone?:
No, I'm too focused on not tripping myself to trip other people. 

7) Least favorite school subject?:
Science, most likely, though I learned to like Psychology labs.  But dropping science senior year was the best  thing that ever happened to  me academically.

8) How many pairs of shoes do you own?
More than 10 pairs, less than 20...I just bought some super  cute  pointy flats from  urban outfitters that  flay the skin off my  achilles tendons, but ah well...

9) Do you own a Britney Spears CD?:
ahahahah. that's a definitive "no."  I do  secretly like "Toxic," though, goddamn catchy tune.

10) Have you ever thrown up in public?
On car trips, multiple times over  the years.  The last time was probably in France...I stepped off  a train in Nice and  puked into a trashcan. Lovely.  That's what a lot of salty snacks and riding backwards will do to you.

11) Name one thing that is always on your mind:
My various neurosis.

12) Favorite genre of music?:
le indie rock.  I like melodramatic boy singers with whiny voices in particular, and have recently been swayed  over to the alt-country camp. Stupid  ex-boyfriend's  music taste.
13) What is your zodiac sign?:
Libra...if only I were as balanced as my sign claims.

14) What time were you born?:
7:30 pm, about 2,160 hours too early.

15) Do you like beer?:
Yes, indeed.  I like Guiness in particular, and Lambic Framboise (yummy belgian concoction) when I'm feeling girly and decadent.

16) Ever made a prank phone call?
When I was  six.  To  the operator.  She eventually called us back and yelled at me and  my  friend, because we were  dumb, dumb children.

17) What is the most embarassing CD you own?:
Probably that album of Elton John covers.  I could try and defend myself by saying it belongs to my parents, but...I totally stole it from them (it's really good, you guys!).

18) Are you sarcastic?:
hee. Just a tad.

19) What are your favorite colors?:
Blue, red, and certain shades of green.

20) How many watches do you own?
Just one, my cheap but awesome watch from target.

21) Summer or winter?:
The beginning  of both. 

22) Is anyone in love with you?:
Not to my knowledge.   You're welcome to come out of the woodwork, you know...

23) Favorite color to wear?:
used  to be black, now I mix it up a bit...I wear a  lot of reds and oranges these days...

24) Pepsi or Sprite?:
Sprite.  Which I used  to drink non-stop in high school.  It faded along  with my orange  tic tac obsession. Remember  that?

25) What color is your cell phone?:
Silver and black.

26) Where is your second home?
Le Chevy Chase, avec les parents.

27) Have you ever slapped someone:
No, but this  kid named trevor slapped me in  1st grade when I told him to shut up  after he called  me fat (I weighed  like, 50 lbs. What was that child smoking?).  He left a nice, red handprint on my cheek.

28) Have you ever had a cavity?:
Not  yet, but I keep dreading the next trip to the dentist.

29) How many lamps are in your bedroom?:
Uhhh,  two? Bedside and desk.

30) How many video games do you own?
None, unless you count tetris on my cell phone, and the sims on  my computer, both of which I've sadly become hooked on again.

31) What was your first pet?
Daisy the fish. But my first  real pet was Buster, the Best Cat Ever.  Awww, I  miss Bus Bus...

32) Ever had braces?:
Nope.  The first time  I had anything  other than a cleaning  done to my teeth was my top wisdom teeth a couple years ago...

33) Do looks matter?
Yes, insofar as your own  taste goes.  Like Jody said, it just doesn't work if you're  not physically attracted  to someone; but  hotness alone does not a  catch make.

34) Do you use chapstick?:

I use Smith's Rosebud Salve.  So yummy.

35) Spiderman or Batman?
Batman. Christian Bale is so not even in the same  universe as  Toby Maguire, hotness wise. 

36) American Eagle or Abercrombie?:
Neither.  Don't own a stich from either one, thankyouverymuch.

37) Are you too forgiving?:
In some circumstances, yes.  In others, not  enough. 

38) How many children do you want?
sometimes I think I just want one  or  two, other times I think I want, like, ten.  It'll most likely be the former, though.

39) Do you own something from Hot Topic?:
No...by the time  that store opened up I  was out of my goth phase.

40) Favorite breakfast meal?:
uhh, oddly, rice. It gets  me going in the morning.  On special occasions, bagels and lox.

41) Do you own a gun?:
I used  to own a cap gun. It was  awesome.

42) Ever thought you were in love?:
Yes,  but not  in a healthy, reciprocated  way.

43) When was the last time you cried?:
Umm,  I think fairly recently.  Embarrassingly enough, I think I was watching  Stepmom. I'm blaming hormones.

44) What did you do 3 nights ago?:
Went home, rented Dead Like Me,  and made tacos.

45) Olive Garden?:
Never had the pleasure...barf.

46) Have you ever called your teacher mommy?:
Probably, though I don't remember doing  so.

47) Have you ever been in a castle?:
I've been to like, a frillion chateaux, and  a few English and Scottish castles.

48) Nicknames?:
Jen, Jenny, Genevieve...I had others that have fallen by the wayside.

49) Do you know anyone named Bertha?:
My great-aunt was named Bertha!

50) Ever been to Kentucky?:
Yeah, a few years ago to see my great-great-grandmother's house.  We stopped at a buffet place, and had the best southern food I've ever eaten...I'm still dreaming anbout those pies.

51) Do you own something from Banana Republic?:
My black, wide leg bartending  pants. Those puppies have served  me well.

52) Are you thinking about somebody right now?
I'm always  thinking about a lot  of people.  In particular, I'm thinking about old  friends.

53) Ever called somebody Boo?:
Oh dear lord, no.

54) Do you smoke?
I used to. I haven't since...well, May.  Man, I thought it was longer than that.  In my defense, I was drunk and in Virginia. That's what they do there.

55) Do you own a diamond ring?:
I did when I was  four.  My crazy antique-dealer grandma gave it to  me. Of course, I lost it the first time  I wore it out.  Who gives  a  four-year-old a diamond  ring?!

56) Are you happy with your life right now?:
Some parts  yes (job, apartment),  other parts no  (social/love life)...

57) Do you dye your hair?:
I died it a pretty auburn brown a couple months ago,  it needs a touch up. And a trim.  I'm still tempted to do crazy colors.

58) Does anyone have a crush on you?:
Possibly.  It's unclear, and I'm fine with that, actually.

59) What year were you born?:

60) What were you doing in May of 1994?:
Finishing  up the 4th grade.  Man, Mr. Jones was awesome.  That was the last good  year of  elementary school.

61) Do you own a Backstreet Boys CD?
No, but I was tempted back in middle school.  You see how I  bare my soul in this survey?!
62) McDonalds or Wendys?
MmmmmMcNuggets. I'm so glad there's a KFC rather than a McDonald's on our corner, because I would  weigh 500 lbs.

63) Do you like yourself?:
Lately, not  so much. Which I'm trying to work on.

64) Are you closer to your mother or father?:
I'm  close to both of them equally in different ways.

Eyes, lips, hands,  lower backs...sigh.

Sometimes, after  watching the wrong movie late at night.

I *hate* pringles, so lays if I had  to choose,  but I prefer  dirty potato chips...yum.

74) Have you ever broken someone's heart?
Not so far...

75) Rugrats or Doug?:
Doug.  Doug was awesome.

76) Full House or The Brady Bunch?:
The five year-old in me  says  Full House, though it got on my nerves even then.

77) Did you like your high school guidance counselor?:
No, she was a clueless biotch.  The one  in middle school rocked though.

Do birth-scars count?  I have TONS  of those!

Passive-agression (in myself and others); People who catcall me; excessive  application of the color pink.

83) Do you text message often?:
Yeah...one more way to avoid the phone.

If texts count, Anna the ex-roomie. Aww, I miss her.
