the tinyblog survey

I came across in my Email one of those middle-school kinda surveys from a friend. You know, "What's your favorite color?" and all that. I have to admit it, I love the things.

I got to thinking though, these are fun, but they're not really the questions I would want answers to. So, in response, I composed my own survey. Please cut and paste the following into an Email, meticulously and carefully answer all the questions (you know you want to, it's all about you!) and Email me the results:

What name do you prefer to be called?

Have you ever hallucinated something you knew wasn’t there but looked real?

What is your favorite kind of tea?

What languages do you know swear words in?

Do you believe in a benevolent creator?

If so, do you have a relationship with it/him/her?

Do you believe in homeopathy?

What famous person you really wish you could be friends with?

What makes you act the most evil?

How much does your mom know about your life?

What music did you once love but can’t even listen to now?

What’s the dirtiest book you’ve ever read?

Are you a top, bottom, or versatile?

What is your most prominent dysfunction?

What is your favorite font?

What is your favorite kind of salad dressing?

Ever had a major illness or injury?

Ever come close to death?

Would you kill a man if it was you or him?

Would you kill a man just for lookin’ at you funny?

Are you still friends with your exes?

What do you bring to a potluck?

Say one nice thing about the author of this survey.

Okay, two things.

Say one nice thing about yourself, too.

Now Email it to danieltalsky@hotmail.com and whoever else you want to know you so intimately. If you get any good responses, email those to me too. Any questions you feel should be added?

Comments

What name do you prefer to be called? I've played with changing my name a number of times, to my own mind I don't even have a name. I don't like proper nouns. I'd prefer not to be called anything, outside of the bundle of associations and memories which is the language of thought.

Have you ever hallucinated something you knew wasn’t there but looked real? Yeh, a few times. I once saw a glowing yellow spider dancing around on my pillow. When I was watching the entire star wars trilogy I'm sure I hulucinated big chunks of stuff. These both when I was slipping into unconciousness after a night of illicit pharmacutical abuse, the brain starts to dream with eyes open if you're tired enough.

What is your favorite kind of tea? Some kind of herbal tea, without caffine. Caffene makes me antsey

What languages do you know swear words in? English, German, French.

Do you believe in a benevolent creator? I'm a sort-of solipsist, and I think I'm pretty benevolant

If so, do you have a relationship with it/him/her? No, definatly not :-D

Do you believe in homeopathy? No

What famous person you really wish you could be friends with? Elizabeth Hurley. I met her once, and talked with her for a while without realy knowing who she was, and she was actualy realy nice

What makes you act the most evil? I only ever think evil, not act it out. Although sleep deprivation tends to get me pretty nutty

How much does your mom know about your life? A fair amount. I don't tell her everything, but she's pretty sharp when it comes to figuring out people's motovations and suchlike (a tallent I've inherited)

What music did you once love but can’t even listen to now? This is the hardest question so far! I don't think I can think of anything. There's stuff I've stopped listening to, but not realy because I hate it. Oh hang on. Dido. I can't stand "No Angel" anymore.

What’s the dirtiest book you’ve ever read? Dunno, nothing blatently dirty, maybe some Larry Niven Sci-Fi book or somthing? Nothing realy stands out.

Are you a top, bottom, or versatile? Definatly Top

What is your most prominent dysfunction? Lack of ability to form long term intimite relationships.

What is your favorite font? Century Gothic

What is your favorite kind of salad dressing? Au Natural

Ever had a major illness or injury? Nope

Ever come close to death? Nope

Would you kill a man if it was you or him? Without hesitation

Would you kill a man just for lookin’ at you funny? Probably not, although i'd probably think about it.

Are you still friends with your exes? some, but see my failings

What do you bring to a potluck? Aloofness

Say one nice thing about the author of this survey. Cares a lot about the underdog

Okay, two things. Good choice of colour schemes.

Say one nice thing about yourself, too. Answers silly surveys.

Here's mine. Thanks again for the nifty questions!
