memnus: Me with my head back and eyes closed (Laid back)
Responses to a meme.

[ profile] zhukora1 asks: Got any phobias or otherwise irrational aversions? If so, do they/have they ever affected your decisions or the way you choose to live your life?

I'd like to think it's not irrational, but I don't like wondering where my basic needs will be coming from, or relying on others for them. When I interned for NVIDIA for a summer, I didn't have confirmation about the room I was renting until the evening that I'd already driven into town, and I was parked on some friends' couch. That was not a fun week, and it prompted me to get whatever apartment I could before moving to Salt Lake, without any of this "visiting" nonsense. The apartment I ended up in was poorly insulated and not in the most convenient location. The same reasoning had applied when I had several job prospects in SLC and none in San Diego; fortunately that has been resolved.

[ profile] ozzygoddess asks: What is the least desirable of all household chores and why?

Dusting, oh gods dusting. Either you just kick all the dust back up into the air so it can fall all over everything again, or you use some tool approximating a wet washcloth that can't get into all the tiny little crannies you find (never mind the ones you forget). There's always more places than you could have possibly thought, and anywhere there's a sharp corner you can't quite get into you end up with a margin of dust all around your clean surface. And you knock stuff over or otherwise make a mess in the process.

I'd heard rumors, but you all know me. How could I take this crap seriously. I mean really, you read all kinds of crap on the internet. For as bored as I was at work, the first account I'd actually trust came that much too late. Oh, hells, of all the days to take the bus route that goes past the city cemetary.

The place was a mess, let me tell you.

The worst is that people don't seem to notice. Just go about their lives, until they stray too close and chomp, it's over. I managed to get back here, but I don't know if I can get out again. The construction team working on the balconies got attacked while I was eating, and they're between me and the garage. Their ladder got knocked down, at least, and with my couch against my third-floor door I can keep them out, so far. But when they're in, I won't last long.

I'll do what I can... but really, I'm not equipped for this. The ceiling is too low, and my bow doesn't have that much stopping power, especially if I have to pierce the skull at point-blank range. The couple daggers I keep around may give me just enough reach to keep one or two off, but gods know I don't have the speed to survive in close combat.

Food... well, a few days at least. If electricity stays one, I can maybe leverage a bag of flour into the bare minimum for quite a while. But gods, I don't want to. If anyone is reading this that can organize anything, send something for me.

From Dan, one of the few memes I think I can appreciate.

Except it's pink. )

1. Comment here and I'll pick one of your LJ interests and draw a picture using the mighty MS Paint GIMP Corel Photo-Paint. Someday. Maybe.

2. You have no say in what I draw for you, or in how much it will suck!

3. Put this in your journal along with the pictures people drew for you.

If you had me alone... locked up in your house for twenty-four hours and I had to do whatever you wanted me to, what would you do with me? All comments will be screened because it's a secret. Then repost this in your LJ. You might be surprised with the responses you get.

(I wish there was a way to reply to a screened comment without making it visible...)
