Meme time!  
Here we go. Meme time again!

1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4: 
"time, true. His feeling that way and her stepping around it and" (it's one of my Nan's books. A mystery one, I think. By Patricia Cornwell.)

2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can, what do you reach:
A bright green velvet cushion.

3. What is the last thing you watched on TV?
Boston Legal. That, Doctor Who and Torchwood are about the only things I watch these days - I'm not even as much of a Futurama addict as I used to be.

4. Without looking, guess that time it is:

5. What time is it really?
7:19. Damn. 14 minutes off.

6. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?
The television blasting, so that Grandpa can hear it. (yes, that means I have the net at my Nana's now!)

7. When did you last step outside? What were you doing?
To get a photo of my cat, and various other things around my Nan's house.

8. Before you started this survey, what did you look at?
My ever-mounting pile of dA messages.

9. What are you wearing?
Cream shirt, green board-shorts, black and white thongs. (I mean flip-flops, you know, or whatever you other-country people call them. :P

10. Did you dream last night?
Everyone dreams every night. It's a well known fact! (unless of course, they didn't sleep then) Remembering it, on the other hand, is an entirely different story. And I cannot remember.

11. When did you last laugh?
Today, when a friend of mine play-threatened to throw another friend of mine in the school dumpster. He sure did get a fright when he almost did it, too. :P (he didn't actually throw him in; it was a scare-joke) But it was spectacular to watch, and both of them were laughing afterwards, too. XD

12. Seen anything weird lately?
My Nana with a WiFi modem. Seriously, the two just do not go together. XD

13. What do you think of this quiz?
Yet another quiz. With a hint of "I feel like I've done this before..." syndrome.

14. What is the last film you saw?
Gattaca for my sci-fi class. It was okay. Though the murder felt a little... I dunno, out-of-place? That's just me.

15. If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy?
I'd buy the entire Adobe Suite! :D And, really fast WiFi for mum's house, a laptop for Nan, and an extended dA subbie. And presents for my freinds... and then I'd save the rest for uni and... just for the sake of saving money.

16. If you could change one thing about the world, regardless of guilt or politics, what would it be?
I would... I'm not sure. There's too many things that could really do with changing, but one idea is to make the politicians honest and good people, not hell-bent on making money and being idiots and starting wars.

17. Do you like to dance?
Not really. I've done the Macarina before, but that was years ago. I'm just not a dancer. Though, I have been known to do the *cough* air piano, air guitar, and air violin when no one's looking.

18. George W. Bush:
desperately needed to be gotten rid of. Not everyone will agree with me, but I know a lot will.

19. Imagine your first child is a girl, what do you call her? a boy?
To be honest, I don't plan on having one. I have a number of reasons for this, (for one, the world population is cramped enough) and I have no idea what I'd call either the boy or the girl, anyway.

20. Would you ever consider living abroad?
Of course! Who do you think I am?! Always wanted to go to England, Japan, Canada and a few places scattered around Europe. Perhaps America. That one's debatable - I'm not sure what I'd enjoy seeing there.

21. The last song you listened to on your portable music device.
I don't remember! I haven't used it in a few days.

22. Tag six people who must also do this in their notes!
But I don't know six people to tag! DX
Current Location: My Nan's couch.
Current Mood: amusedamused
Current Music: None

Your nan has a green velvet cushion? Lucky! I love velvet cushions. ^^

Congrats at getting net at your nan's, though. Whoooooo! XD

I call them thongs. ^^

Living abroad isn't the same as traveling, though. Living means staying there for at least several months. Would you still? (I'm guessing you would, actually.)

You need to watch more people. Then you'll have people to tag.

Random comment is random.

Is this me? Commenting? Yay, I'm (partially) active again! Still haven't beaten the messages down, but I've decided that if I wait until I've tackled all my messages, I won't be back until Christmas. *laughs*

Oooh, I don't. Lovely velvet, but I hate cushions, personally. They only get in the way, since I like to stretch out. ^^;

Well, now I have it again! XD

You do? Thank goodness! To be honest, calling them flip-flops sounds kinda... silly.

Yes, of course I will! I'm actually contemplating studying abroad when I get to uni. Though I haven't the faintest clue about where I'd go - there're too many choices! XD

Good point, it's on my to-do list. ;)

Is it? I never would have guessed.
quettalindequettalinde on June 21st, 2009 06:39 pm (UTC)
Good plan. :)

Okay, I can see that. I like having cushions around me when I'm snuggled up watching a movie.

Woot! :D

Yeah, I know. Silly and American!

You can probably narrow it down some by affordability, scholarships offered, whether they speak a language you know… There's the Emily Carr University of Fine Art here in Vancouver, for instance. I've heard they're very good, if also very selective.


MoonlightAuroramoonlightaurora on June 22nd, 2009 01:22 am (UTC)
Eh, I'd rather have a nice warm duna to snuggle up with than cushions. Especially my extra warm cat duna. XD

Not just American. I've heard that some people from the UK (if not, a majority) use the word, as well.

Mmm, fair enough. I wasn't planning to go to somewhere like France! I need English, I think. If the studying abroad thing fails, (I'm hoping it won't, because I've wanted to go to England or Canada since I was tiny) I'll be going to Swinburne in Melbourne, which is very highly regarded for its high-standard graphics, IT and programming courses. I need to do Maths Methods next year to get in, however, so it might be a bit of a struggle. But I'll do it! I'm not really worried by affordability - ever heard of HEX Payment? ;D
quettalindequettalinde on June 22nd, 2009 07:33 am (UTC)
I think we've been through this before, but "duna"?

Yeah. English gooood. ^^ What's Maths Methods? That sounds a little worrying. And no, sorry, I haven't heard of that. :(
MoonlightAuroramoonlightaurora on June 22nd, 2009 12:31 pm (UTC)
Heh, I think so too. I think I was hoping you'd remember. ^^; Ah well, it's a kind of blanket. It's got an inside much like a pillow, except not nearly as hard. Very warm. *hug*

I don't think I could even cope with Italian, unfortunately. ^^; Maths Methods... well, today I learned it's mostly algebra and formulae and calculus, so hopefully I'll be fine...

HEX is a form of payment we use in Australia for uni. You don't have to pay your uni fees off until you reach a certain annual income. And when you reach that, you pay it off like a mortgage.
quettalindequettalinde on June 22nd, 2009 04:34 pm (UTC)
Okay. *nods*

Nope, and I couldn't cope with French. :( Oh, that's good. I hope the calculus stuff isn't all that tricky. The other stuff won't be.

Ah, okay. That's kind of useful, actually. Most people here finance uni through loans, which they have to start paying back as soon as they get a job afterwards. It doesn't matter what income level that job is…
