Survey: swiped from livinginoctober

Spell your name backwards: assileM. Wasn't that exciting?
The story behind your LJ username: It's the domain name (minus the dot-org) of my personal website.
Are you a lesbian? Ask me again tomorrow and my answer may not be the same.
How old? 22 years, 2 months, 6 days, some random amount of minutes.
Where do you live? I currently reside in North Carolina, but I wouldn't call it living.
4 words that sum you up: tired full time mother.

Wallet: Front panel in my purse.
Hairbrush: plastic and metal. Yep.
Toothbrush: the 50-cent special from Wal-Mart; soft bristles.
Jewelry worn daily: I don't wear any daily right now. Silver and humidity do bad things to my skin.
Pillow cover: Grey with a coordinating satin detail pin-tucked where the hem is sewn. Matches my sheets.
Blanket: Until I unpack the down comforter, a massive green thing, probably a wool-blend. It was cheap and I've had it forever.
Coffee cup: a large-size (15 oz?) mug from Elitch Gardens pre-Six Flags.
Sunglasses: currently prescription in the same style frame as my glasses, but I'd like to get prescription lenses in my rhinestone-accented cat-eyes.
Underwear: *shrugs* don't really notice often since it's a pain to find both inexpensive (under $10 for 5 pairs) and in my size. White.
Shoes: only ones I've got unpacked are my Birkenstock sandals -- steel grey suede Milanos (the classic Arizona with a backstrap).
Handbag: compact leather purse I bought because my camera bag was being crowded with purse stuff.
Favorite top: any of my handmade wool sweaters.
Favorite pants: don't own many, so I guess my Eddie Bauer jeans (they went on sale before LL Bean's and I won't buy women's jeans that don't fit).
Cologne/Perfume: usually don't bother, YSL Rive Gauche when I do.
CD in stereo right now: Don't know, have NPR on in the background.
What you are wearing now: flannel PJs, blue with a cartoony celestial print.
Hair: dark brown, straight, about to my shoulders.
Makeup: not often, but I think I own some.

WHO or WHAT (was/is/are) -
In my mouth: animal crackers.
In my head: NPR news.
Wishing: I was asleep.
After this: washing dishes, folding laundry, possibly getting dressed.
Talking to: no-one right now. clearmind left for class.
Eating: animal crackers.
Fetishes: Yes. Ask if you're so interested.
If you could get away with it and murder anyone, who and for what reason? I wouldn't.
Person you wish you could see right now: Michael and Kathryn. I miss you crazy kids.
Is next to you: Laurel's sleeping on the couch, Himself's sleeping in the bedroom.
Some of your favorite movies: Pulp Fiction, Fantasia, Amelie, Delicatessen, the View Askew series, Monsters Inc..
Something you're looking forward to in the upcoming months: assembling the rest of my dinette, sealing and painting the wallpaper and some of the paneling, making a big motley feast for Christmas!
The last thing you ate? Animal crackers.
Something that you are deathly afraid of? *shrugs* Nothing I'm deathly afraid of, but I have an aversion to submerging my face in water.
Do you like candles: Yeah. Those cheap emergency ones from the dollar store kill bathroom odor far better than aerosol spray.
Do you like hot wax: Not on my body.
Do you like incense: Not in the sense of the cheap stick stuff you can buy anywhere. I like sandalwood, amber and myrrh, though.
Do you like the taste of blood: Not especially.
Do you believe in love: Yes.
Do you believe in soul mates: Sometimes.
Do you believe in love at first sight? If I were to answer that, it'd be an entry in itself.
Do you believe in Heaven: I believe in architecture. I believe in good design. I don't believe as strongly in abstractions.
Do you believe in forgiveness: Yes, but if someone has wronged me so completely as to irritate me, forgiveness is a long time coming.
Do you believe in God? I believe in a higher powers.
What do you want done with your body when you die: cremated, then used as fertilizer.
Who is your worst enemy? Myself.
If you could have any animal for a pet: Something I'm not allergic to, I suppose.
What is the latest you've ever stayed up: you mean the longest I've ever been awake continuously? 5 days on a manic swing.
Ever been to Belgium? Not yet.
Can you eat with chopsticks: yes, though I look like a spaz in the process. I'm a work in progress with chopsticks.
What's your favorite coin? Yes.
What are 5 cities you wouldn't mind relocating to? Boulder, Denver, San Jose, Boston, Brunswick, ME.
What are some of your favorite pig out foods? Cheese, berries, raisin bagels.
What's something that you wish people would understand? That preaching at me doesn't make me want to join someone's religion and that while they are, I'm privately laughing at them.
What's something you wish you could understand better? Fluid dynamics, and that one Isiah Berlin book that I always get stuck reading.
Anyone you miss that you haven't seen in a long time? Yes, but they're dead.
What's one thing you want to make happen for tomorrow? Finish folding the laundry.

I nearly always skip people's surveys, but I read yours all the way through. Very interesting, and I appreciated your answers. Why Brunswick, ME? Are you from Maine?

Because it's as close as I can get to Bowdoin (there used to be a town of that name, but now there's just the college with a Brunswick address). Long story behind that, not interesting at all. I was born in Rutland, MA so I guess that's as close to being "from" anywhere as I can get.

That said, I'm going to go wish I was a drunk because this week is a no-sleep week with Robert on mid shift this week (which of course we found out about at 0130 on Tuesday morning), Laurel refusing to sleep at her normal schedule with the different activity here, and me just not getting any sleep since they both need to be taken care of (he doesn't wake up to his alarm clock and she's, well, a 2-year-old). Pardon the bitchiness for the rest of the week.
