I REFUSE To Study Right Now.
Thanks, Qiong for blogging a quiz. Now I have something to do.
I think I'll further expand on the questions so that I can put off doing my Equity and Trusts tutorial a bit longer.
What is the geekiest part of your music collection?
Hmm. People say John Mayer is geek-cool, so yeah, this blog is a walking tribute to geek music. In case that doesn't quite fit, then I'd have to say my musicals collection. Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserable, and one Andrew Lloyd Webber compilation. If I had the money it would include Sunset Boulevard, Joseph and the Amazing Techicolour Dreamcoat, Tomfoolery and Wedding Banquet too. But honestly, I wouldn't buy anything I didn't think was cool anyway, so this is a question that doesn't really have a proper answer. You might want to know the most embarrasing part of my collection - that involves TCS made CDs like the yang guang xi lie collection. But even that had some really good stuff I used for plays in the past. The teenybopperest part of my collection? I have every Backstreet Boys album ever made, but no regrets there either.
What is your secret guaranteed weeping movie?
I've never cried at any movie. Only at the last episode of Season 1 of the O.C. Visuals just don't usually move me as much as audio.
If you could have plastic surgery, what would you have done?
I'd do that nasty business of breaking all the bones in my legs to gain a couple of inches. Though I wonder if that's classified as plastic surgery.
Do you have a completely irrational fear?
Yeah. I always think that if I'm not at home with them, my parents have a higher risk of getting into a car accident, touch wood.
What is the little physical habit that gives away your insecure moments?
Picking my cuticles. Watch out for it when I'm mooting.
Do you know anyone famous?
Hmm. Sun Yanzi if you count the few times I bumped into her at Gnet's. Chinhao of Singapore Idol. TC (since he's just appear on the News I'd give him that credit, and everytime I learnt so much). Jeffrey Tan of the SDT (since I've been a fan from Sec 4 I'll count him famous, and its still such an honour). Other minor starlets and TV people I've exchanged words with in the course of TFYE and DE, but no one I personally really know.
Who would play you in a movie?
Me. I gather I'll act me rather well.
What do you carry with you at all times?
Watch - feel naked without it. And my rather active conscience.
What do you miss most about being a kid?
The inline skating sessions at 5pm everyday at the void deck. 80's cartoons and sitcoms like Care Bears, Count Duckula, Eerie Indiana, Who's the Boss, Perfect Strangers... being an only child I grew up watching TV, and I'll attribute my command of English to that.
What colour is your bedroom?
At home, bluebell white with peach furniture. In PGP, jailcell white with brown and cream furniture.
What was the last song you were listening to?
One very obscure little ditty by John Mayer called "Victoria", from the Inside Wants Out indie album. I'm not obsessed lah. It just so happened to pop up on my mp3 shuffle option.
Have you ever been in a play?
Like, duh. Most memorable one was Roald Dahl's "Witches" with Wenz and Eda, amongst others. Most demanding and the one I learnt the most from was TC's "Secrets" with the TFYE. Most agonising but the one I'm proud of having been a part of was Chen Seong's "Scared" with Tzo and Angela et al for RJ Drama Feste. Other minor productions I don't really remember.
Have you ever been in love?
In retrospect now, I think so, yeah. Unfortunately I (very uncharacteristically) also told him to go f*ck himself. Haha. But really, it's all good now.
Do you like yourself and believe in yourself?
I lurve me. I rock. Go me. *chuckle*
Do transient, homeless, or starving people sometimes annoy you?
Homeless and starving people don't, why should they? In fact, a week ago I felt I took a maturity step forward when I saw this cleaning lady throw away this homeless guy's dinner. It was horrible. Dad gave him 10 bucks after that, and it was good to know we could help. Transient people, yes, they annoy me. Make up your mind already.
What is your ideal marriage location?
Um. I haven't a clue. I'm an unconventional girl, I know. My husband can pick the place, as long as I do the event planning.
Which musical instrument do you wish you could play?
Drums. No question.
Cotton. It's the only thing that can keep you cool in Singapore.
What's the one language you want to learn?
I've attempted both my dream languages, French and Sign. Neither of which I'm particularly good at. I can get by on Sign Language lah, I think. Had a decent conversation with a Deaf dude once. Otherwise, I want to learn Spanish and Cantonese.
How do you eat an apple?
I chew and swallow. Peristalsis, enzymes and the GI track take care of the rest.
What do you order at a bar?
Have you ever pierced your body parts?
Ears. Unexciting, I know. But holey bits aren't really my style.
Do you have tattoos?
Not yet. I'm not quite into long-lasting permanence. And I always think it'll get rather gross when I'm old and wrinkly and saggy.
Do you drive a stick?
I can't figure this out. I've even tried thinking of all the obscene connotations I can, but still no go.
Would you ever go out dressed like the opposite sex?
What's one car you will never buy?
Ferrari formula one. Simply because it ain't gonna go nowhere on our roads.
What kind of books do you like to read?
I've got a rather wide appetite for books. I'll read classics just because I think I should, and I like to feel accomplished in that way, even if I don't qutie enjoy the process. SF, pretty much only of the Ender's series, Phillip K. Dick, David Brin variety, because I like to struggle with the new concepts - PKD is particularly good for that. I love thrillers, suspense / mystery type things - Agatha Christie, Arthur Conan Doyle sorts although not in too large doses. I adore DIY books - that's how I got this blog up in the first place - anything that will teach me a new skill is good. Fantasy, though, is beyond me - Harry Potter and LOTR being exceptions.
If you won the lottery, what would you do?
How much did I win? Assuming close to an infinite amount, retire my parents, buy a new house, enroll in some Ivy League university.
Do you cry in front of your friends?
Thus far, only in front of Qiong, Tzo and Smub girls.
What's one thing you like to do alone?
Bathe. Back off, perv.
Are you a giver or a taker?
Giver. I'm actually rather restricted in both ways, but I would never take more than I deserve, while I might give a little more than I should.
When's the last time you cried?
25th February 2005. Out of frustration at the blasted Public Law assignment.
How many drinks before you're tipsy sleepy?
I don't get tipsy. Sleepy... the last time it seemed that one whiskey coke did it.
Alright. *sigh* I think I'll start work now.

*lol* you really expounded on it XD Glad you had fun. And nice to know i'm not the only one who didn't get the stick question XD
