Questions meme!

Meme time! Tagged by darcenciel.

First: If you've been tagged, you must write your answers in your own journal and replace any question that you dislike with a new question.

Second: Tag eight people. I tag anyone who wants to play along!

++Lots of pillows or just one?

One, as firm as I can get it, and not too tall, either. Too-tall or too-mushy pillows give me a neckache.

++What kind of books do you read?

Read ALL the books!

Okay, now seriously. I am more likely to read fiction than non-fiction, and I'm more likely to read speculative fiction than other kinds of fiction, and I'm more likely to read fantasy than sci-fi. But that's just in general; really, I'll read almost anything.

++What's your favorite tea?

English Breakfast, not too strong. Stronger on the Ceylon than the Assam, although I like a good Assam as well. I'm also always on the lookout for a nice smooth oolong.

++What's a good lesson you've learned?

To be more forthright in telling people what I think, rather than telling them what I think they want to hear so that they'll like me. Not mean, or blunt -- there is still room in life for tactfulness! But honesty is generally a better choice than half-truths or evasion.

++What's really annoying?

Muni. (San Francisco's public transit system, which gives me trouble more days than not.)

++What's your biggest accomplishment of the day?

I got all my invoices in to Accounting before the end-of-month deadline.

++Do you prefer your junk food sweet, salty or savory?

Sweet. I have such a terrible sweet tooth. Although I can also go for chips, and/or salsa, and/or cheese and crackers. And pizza. I love pizza, even bad pizza. Especially bad pizza.

++What your favorite place to relax?

Any cafe in San Francisco with good people-watching.

++What was the last thing you bought?

A latte before dinner, then my share of dinner itself.

++What is your greatest fear?

Heights. More specifically, falling. I don't mind being up high if I feel safe. But if I feel the least bit insecure, rationally or otherwise, I freak out.

++Do you get cravings? If so, what do you crave?

Most often, chocolate. Sometimes soda.

++What do you do to change your mood?

It depends on the day. Sometimes listening to music, sometimes spacing out on video games, sometimes chocolate. But the best thing is a distraction -- chatting with a friend, or going out and doing something. I almost always hate wallowing in a bad mood.

++What was the last meal you ate?

Dinner out with friends: pumpkin soup, steak, chocolate torte. It was really yummy.

++Do you want to learn another language?

I just wish I actually remembered the German I studied for four years in high school and college. It would be really handy to know Spanish also.

++Somewhere you want to travel to?


Of the places I haven't been, probably the highest on the list right now are Germany (Berlin in particular), Hong Kong, and New Orleans.

++What are your dietary restrictions?

I don't have allergies or other restrictions per se, but I am very picky. I won't eat fish, some vegetables, and most kinds of fruit.

++What's something that you'd like to say to someone right now?

I miss you.

++What are you looking forward to?

This week to be over argh. It's busy season at work, and I have a long day tomorrow. More positively, I'm looking forward to the end of next week: Halloween at school, maybe the local Rally for Sanity on Saturday morning, and my friend S's birthday party that evening. Good times.
