41 Questions meme  
It's been a very long time since I actually answered one of these memes, so I'll try my hand at this and give the ネタ tag a workout.


1. ARE YOU NAMED AFTER SOMEONE?
I have my father's first name as my middle name, but my first name was chosen on the basis of it being hard to make a nickname out of.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
I shed a single tear, shining like a jewel, when I read the scene where Théoden dies and Éowyn kills the Witch-King of Angmar to softlykarou the weekend before last.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
I block-print everything because my handwriting is illegible.

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
Mostly raw steak.

5. DO YOU HAVE ANY KIDS?
At the moment, no.

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS W/YOU?
That depends on what person I was, doesn't it? Unless this is about whether if I were another person with the same personality, in which case...maybe.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM?
Sometimes. I tend to be fairly serious in speech if not in writing.

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
I do.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE?
I would not.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
I don't eat cereal, but if you forced me, maybe grape nuts.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
They don't come off if I don't.

12. DO YOU THINK YOU'RE STRONG?
In some ways.

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
Vanilla, with salted caramel a close second. That's usually vanilla with something in it, though, like Irish creme or fresh fruit.

14. WHAT'S THE 1ST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT SOMEONE?
Their hair.

15. RED OR PINK?
Red. Red like leaping flames, or my hair.

16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING YOU LIKE ABOUT YOURSELF?
I had a really hard time coming up with the answer to this question, and I think the answer is my shyness. Maybe the reason I'm still so standoffish is that, in the end, I like myself that way.

17. WHAT COLOR PANTS & SHOES ARE YOU WEARING RIGHT NOW?
Dark grey--"light black," some might say--on both accounts.

18. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
Salmon

19. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
The Square Roots podcast, like the post music field says.

20. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
Black. #doom

21. FAVORITE SMELL?
Freshly-brewed matcha.

22. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
Checking my phone records, it was softlykarou.

23. FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH?
Basketball, from back when I was in marching band. Favorite is relative here, though.

24. REAL HAIR COLOR?
My hair is the reddish-gold of copper wire, which is probably why I've never felt the urge to dye it. It's strange enough already.

25. EYE COLOR?
Light brown / hazelish. When I was born they were pitch-black and have been getting steadily lighter as I age.

26. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
No. I like the way they look, but I can't get them in myself.

27. FAVORITE FOOD?
curry.

28. SCARY MOVIE OR HAPPY ENDING?
I don't like scary visual media, but I love it in writing.

29. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
It's been months and I honestly don't remember.

30. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
The sole white shirt in my possession.

31. SUMMER OR WINTER?
Winter. Which is good, because here in Chicago we get plenty of it.

32. HUGS OR KISSES?
Please remain outside the bubble until summoned or until you receive your visitor's pass.

33. FAVORITE DESSERT?
Dark chocolate.

34. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?
I just started Tigana this morning after it's sat on our end table for two months. Sorry, friend who loaned it to me, but I am reading it now!

35. WHAT IS YOUR PROFILE PIC?
On what service? Here, it's an quote I liked. On Twitter it's Touga Kiryuu from Utena, on Facebook it's a picture of me at Fushimi-Inari.

36. WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON TV LAST?
A Laser Time archived Twitch stream of Paper Mario.

37. FAVORITE SOUND?
Rain.

38. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
Rolling Stones.

39. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU'VE BEEN FROM HOME?
I lived in Japan for three years. Unless that doesn't count because I was there for years and it was my home then? In that case, Singapore.

40. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
I can make radios static if I get too close to them like I'm some kind of Silent Hill monster.

41. WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
Aurora, Illinois.

Re: So you are an actual Lovecraft character.
There is a picture of me as a baby in which I unmistakably have the Innsmouth Look.

And if I could find it, I would post it.

I'll respond to either the original question or your response as appropriate ^^

1- I've got a family-passed-on middle name
2- cried just a few hours ago reading a pony tumblr ^^
3- I think my handwriting's ok
4- steak is good but I like mine cooked!
6- Yep. I'm fairly loyal, and don't have a lot of friends.
7- I prefer playing things absurdly strait to the point of irony, though I do occasionally do sarcasm
8- Likewise
9- On the one hand I'm somewhat interested, on the other hand I get mild vertigo, so who knows?
11- I *only* tie my shoes if they come loose on their own, normally I slide in and out ^^
12- Good answer.
13- Mint Chocolate Chip
15- Pink for me ^^ I like the feminine associations
16- I just made a post on this, basically how I don't take initiative
20- I'd be one of those 'multi color mixed up' fun ones ^^
23- Curling's pretty great. Of the recent olympic ones, I found rugby 7s surprisingly interesting.
24- That's pretty cool! Mine's just brown, with the odd white hair (my family all loses hair color like rogue from the X-men, it's pretty cool but I don't have enough for it to show yet like my sister does).
25- I'm brown-green
27- Chickenwings with just a little habernero... at the moment, it switches around fairly often.
28- I'm totally happy ending ^^
29- Jungle Book for me.
30- I'm in blue ^^
31- I used to be winter, but now I'm summer, since I like to walk outside. Honestly spring kinda beats both...
32- I'm fairly into hugs, assuming permission ^^
34- I'm totally between novels, at the moment I'm on gaming books (pathfinder) and manga (Attack on Titan).
35- Good to know! My avvie is various renditions of, well, my avatar/representative that I've had done. I don't look like this but I'd like to ^^
36- Paper Mario? Fun! I caught a late night showing of a 3rd Doctor Who episode.
37- I agree, Rain is great.
39- Japan is, likewise, the furthest I've been.
40- I'm pretty unsure what areas my talents could be called 'special.' But I'd recommend you harness your mutant static powers!
41- I'm St. Paul, Minnesota.

Some replies!
7- I prefer playing things absurdly strait to the point of irony, though I do occasionally do sarcasm

I am also a fan of this technique, though usually only with softlykarou

24- That's pretty cool! Mine's just brown, with the odd white hair (my family all loses hair color like rogue from the X-men, it's pretty cool but I don't have enough for it to show yet like my sister does).

My sister and I both have red hair like our grandfather, though his hair went brown as he got older. Both of our hair seems to be getting lighter, though--my sister's strawberry-blonde now, and I'm "copper blond" going by those color names on hair dye.

Does your family's white hair cluster like Rogue too?

31- I used to be winter, but now I'm summer, since I like to walk outside. Honestly spring kinda beats both...

Given choice of all four seasons, I definitely would have picked fall. I love falling leaves, longer nights, and a chill in the air. But between those two, winter is definitely my favorite.

36- Paper Mario? Fun! I caught a late night showing of a 3rd Doctor Who episode.

It looks really neat! I thought that the Nintendo 64 had no good RPGs after being burned by Quest 64, but apparently I was wrong.

40- I'm pretty unsure what areas my talents could be called 'special.' But I'd recommend you harness your mutant static powers!

So far, the only "use" I've gotten out of them was being banished to the other side of the house to avoid interfering with the stereo set when I worked for a summer as a painter.  photo 3327b7f6b45a33781e80dce4e4461510-d4ipx9c.gif

My sister has a streak like Rogue, yea. My mother has a mix of dark brown and white.
