i just had to read the article someone posted on this. it really just made me think that this is another reason the republicans need to start over. seperate blind hate and religious extremism from your party if you want to be taken seriously!!!!!!!!
and coldstart, do tell! i just remember a lot of drugs from the townies. i mean, there's nothing else out there to do...
A movie is being made about your life. Who plays your role, what's the movie called and what songs are on the soundtrack?
What's your record label called and what type of music do you put out?
the movie would be called "the life absurd", based on the lyric by the postal service "i want life in every word, to the extent that it's absurd". the role of me would be played by monica belluci. it would highlight my early days in a french circus as an acrobat and the soundtrack would be mostly edith piaf and other assorted french pop tunes. the climax would come when in my teen years i fall head-over-heels for a trapeze artist in a competing circus company and would end with a chase through the three rings, ending with him dropping me on the trapeze and me plummeting to my death with non je ne regrette rien playing as i fall, smiling
my label would be "iQ", as those are my first and last initials. my label wouldn't confine itself to any one genre, but it will be seriously hard for any heavy metal, shit-kicking country, screamo, hard house or dubstep to get signed. it would mainly consist of traditional ska & reggae artists, blues, drum & bass, alternative rock and singers of my favourite showtunes & old standards though.
CHAIRMAN...how do your nurture your level of intelectual intelegence?
if you know the movie: this is a Sophie's Choice question. You have to choose between who will live and who will die: your SO, or your mom. Who do you choose and why?****

also, one of my favourite quotes is from confucious "a wise man is aware of all that he does not know", so i always try to remain curious and try to always get answers instead of just assuming i have them. playing devil's advocate is another way i try to challenge the way i think about certain ideas.
and i find most any subject fascinating at first, so i really just try to let life present opportunities for learning and then i go from there. like when i headed to switzerland, i started watching history channel specials that had to do with switzerland and reading up on various websites about the country. that is how i choose to learn. i wait for something to spark my interest, and then i do research. not only in books, online or through television, but through people as well.
i love meeting new people and learning about their lives. even though i may not want to be close friends or anything like that, i love hearing about people's life experiences because that is the most interesting part of this earth i think. and even though most people aren't "intellectual", everyone has some sort of wisdom they can offer you, even if it's only by observing their behavior on what NOT to do, lol.
that was really long, but i hope that answers your question
but since several years of singing lessons could never give me talent, i'd love to be some sort of consultant or existential detective a la i <3 huckabees. nothing tickles me more than someone asking for my advice
my biggest regret is getting back with an ex-boyfriend in high school who had hit me several times (including with a bag of drumsticks) and pushed me down a flight of stairs. it was totally stupid, but i fell for his "i went to therapy, they said i have this problem, i'm better now" schpeal. i also had a long distance boyfriend with a guy in cali for most of my high school career, but we allowed each other to see other people (no sex, no love). that made it even more stupid, because i knew the guy at my high school was literally crazy for me, but i still went on pretending we could "casually date". he eventually raped me, lied about it, stalked me and trashed my car. so i learned my lesson there. i like to say that the experience made me who i am today, but at the same time, i'm terrified to ever see the person again and have real issues as a result. so that would be my biggest regret, getting back with him after he had hit me.
wow, that would be tough. i'd maybe still makeout with him and such, but it would be tough to still be in a relationship. i love the wang way too much, lol.
I am listening to the radio at work and they did some survey that said 70% of people polled met their SO at work. What are your thoughts on employee hookups? Would you be able to live and work with your SO?
i did date someone i met through work, though when we dated we worked in seperate departments. that was fun cause we could meet at the work cafe for quick kisses and such. it was not so fun when we broke up and everyone asked us about it.
It's cute as long as it's Pam & Jim and not Dwight & Angela.
My sister and her soon to be ex husband worked across from each other, lived together and carpooled together. It got to the point they took seperate vacations because they spent so much time together. They are now seperated, whodathunkit.
Ivy, what is your favorite time of day and why?
Doesn't sound like a fun night if you're winding down before 1am.
Well that answers my next question.
Which award would you most like to win: Oscar, Emmy, Grammy or Tony? What category would your award be in?
If you had to be trapped in a tv show for the rest of your life, which one would it be?
Have you ever peed or pooped your pants?
(Not as a baby, obviously)
You're old again aren't you DOLL? oh, wait...
I'm sorry. That was a personal attack, and it was uncalled for.
And I'm sure it had nothing to do with a recent post of yours.
Chicken pot, chicken pot, chicken pot piiiieeeeeeeee!
old school simpsons. a life of hilarity is the life for me.
