903. Does it annoy you when people talk loudly on their cell phones in public?
Not really, I tend to be listening to my mp3 player so I can’t hear them

904. Is love a commitment to one person, or can you love more than one person at the same time?
You can definitely love more than one person at once. Commitment is a commitment to another person, love is a feeling.

905. Cover or original:
Smooth Criminal; is it better by Michael Jackson or Alien Ant Farm?
Alien Ant Farm

Blue Monday better by Orgy or New Order
No idea

I Want Candy; Is it better by Aaron Carter or Bow Wow Wow?

The Cure are pretty good generally, but never heard this song

It’s My Life; Is it better by No Doubt or The Talking Heads?
No Doubt

906. What is the most uncomfortable feeling?
Shame

907. Do you like Maroon 5?
They’re alright

908. Would you ever go on a blind date TV show?
Even though I have a boyfriend I’d have to say yes, just for the sheer hilarity of it.

909. How much of your wardrobe is dry clean only?
None of it as far as I know

910. Who’s arms would you like to crawl into?
Chris is my big strong boyfriend, his arms are adequate for crawling into.

911. What the hell is your problem?
I’m needy

912. Look around you. What is the most beautiful thing you can see?
I have a silk dressing gown that hangs pretty beautifully. My room has a lot of ‘cute’ and ‘interesting’, but not a whole lot of ‘beauty’

913. What is the most beautiful thing you can’t see?
Trees, water, the sun. Nature

914. Take a deep breath. Yawn deeply. Do you appreciate the things most people take for granted, like breathing?
I occasionally get a flash of gratitude and think about how amazing the whole process of breathing is.

915. Do you appreciate breathing more when you have a cold and you’re all congested and can’t breathe right?
Not consciously. I get frustrated that I can’t breathe right.

916. Is congestion a positive thing because it helps you to appreciate breathing?
No, congestion is unhealthy and makes my asthma worse

917. How is your life like a work of art?
Art can often involve a lot of stark comparisons and revelations. I think I lead a very varied and open life.

918. Do you feel that your life influences and is influenced by many other lives?
My life is definitely influenced by all who enter it, for however briefly. I don’t feel that I’m significant enough to influence the lives of more than my closest friends, and then I imagine it’s only on a superficial level.

919. Has a smile ever made all the difference in the world to you?
Yes. A smile can make a day worth getting out of bed for.

920. Have you ever looked at a tree and considered how the roots could be miles long, trailing and entwining with other roots underground, all of them holding the soil together?
Yes. As a bit of a hippy, I think about nature a lot, and I can be quite romantic about trees especially.

921. Do you notice the little things in life?
I notice some little things. I notice different things to a lot of people.

922. Do you feel, as Jung did, that deep down, underneath our individual personalities we are all the same?
No. Everyone is different. Brains are composed differently for every person.

923. Do you feel a great oneness with the universe?
No, I’m far too insignificant for something so huge. I feel a oneness with nature occasionally, when surrounded by it.

924. When was the last time you decided to really enjoy yourself?
I was quite determined to enjoy myself at the BBQ/Bonfire on Tuesday. And I did, I had a wonderful time.

925. When was the last time you set yourself free and acted without caring at all what someone else thought?
I often act as if I don’t care what other people think. It’s the best cover for the fact that I do care, a lot.

926. Have you ever held someone and appreciated how delicate and fragile all life is and felt that they were even more precious and beautiful because one day they would die..and so will you?
In those intimate moments after the night but before the dawn, when you are in the arms of someone you would gladly dedicate your life and soul to, everything seems precious and delicate. Everything is fragile in those moments. A drop of dew on a blade of grass could contain the whole world.

927. In ten years someone else might own your house and the room you are sitting in now. Someone else might be standing right next to where you are sitting now. So that means you could be standing right next to someone but you can’t see him or her because they are ten years away.
Ever look at life like that?
I often consider the strange things that could happen if you removed the barriers of time. In some moment, there could be any number of things going on right where I sit.

928. When was the last time you:
Soaked in a bubble bath
I can’t even remember. Probably last summer when Matt came to visit me. I prefer showers, but the Jacuzzi bath at home is so good I just have to show it off.

Read a good book outside
Last week I took an old copy of The Lord of the Rings to the park and read that for a little while.

Held someone’s hand
This morning before Chris left.

Felt truly joyful
I don’t remember what true joy feels like. I’ve not come close to it for nearly a year now.

929. What do you bring to this world that no one else can?
I don’t think I contribute anything to the world that is unavailable from somewhere else.

930. Do you feel that you are part of every living thing in this world and that all those things are part of you?
No. I am myself.

931. Are you more afraid of death or not completely living?
Not living my life to the fullest. Death is something I’ve spent far too much time thinking about for it to scare me.

932. What was the last thing you wanted to do but didn’t or couldn’t do?
Have sex

933. Why don’t you try and do that thing now?
Chris isn’t here, it’s still ‘the wrong time of the month’

934. What is the most wonderful thing happening right now in the world?
New life

935. Name 7 things going on around you that you normally wouldn’t notice:

1. There are children in school a few hundred meters away learning and growing.

2. There are people falling in love all over the world. It’s a wonderful day for it.

3. I don’t often think about the machinery that keeps my life going, like my PC, the fridge and freezer, etc.
