And deep in the bottom of my navel you will find - Tactical Ninja

10:16 am - And deep in the bottom of my navel you will find

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Last night I did three one-minute wall handstands, and maintained a free one for 10 seconds.

In other news, my head is so full of churning but nothing’s coming out so instead of actual content, have that meme that’s been going round. It was really long so I cut off the questions I thought were boring. It’s now less than half the size it was.


Do you find that people don't really understand you?
In the olden days, yes. Nowadays I put a lot of effort into trying to express myself clearly. I say what I think and my life is an open book (almost literally) and that helps a lot with being understood. People who both understand me, like me and click with me are a much smaller group. Being direct sure sorts the sheep from the goats, people-wise.

Would you say you are a gullible person?
No but if someone told me I was I'd believe them.

Have you ever sat down and played video games all day?
Is the Mako hard to drive? Are you really welcome in the Circus of Value? Is the cake a lie? Do you get chills when Alistair does that creepy laugh? Did you *censored DA2 ref* when *censored DA2 ref* *censored DA2 ref* the *censored DA2 ref*? Do night elves dance like strippers? Um, it's not 'all day' that's the question here. It's "How many weeks does it take you to bring yourself back to reality after a week-long binge?"

*cough*

What do you believe is the best thing about being a kid?
50c is a lot of money when you’re 5.

Is there anything you're currently holding back?
Yes, two things - one out of respect for other people's boundaries and the other because I doubt anyone would be interested even though it means a lot to me.

If you could go anywhere right now, where would you go; why?
Anywhere that doesn't look like this would be good:

I think the reason is self-evident. Also, I like that you can see my desktop in the background of this.

Have you ever trusted someone you wish you wouldn't have?
Yes. Given the sort of life I've had, the fact that I trust anybody at all is really quite amazing. The people responsible for this I can count on one hand. They remain my closest friends.

Do you own an umbrella?
This is Wellington, land of the broken umbrellas. We live in a wind-alley between two mountainous islands on the cusp of a convergence of major weather patterns. People who own brollies here are either new in town or have the money to cough up for one of those fancy wind ones and also sufficient body weight to hold them in place when the gusts catch them. This is not me.

Have you ever drank milk when it was spoilt?
No but I bathed in it once on a bet. It was.. not as bad as you'd think.

Do you know what all the keys on your keyboard do?
Mostly, but I get a bit lost around F6. The last few Fs, I've no real clue.


What is the last thing you spent money on?
New seals for our espresso machine because someone who shall remain nameless because she's too embarrassed to own up used a knife to pry the basket out when it got suctioned on. Doh.

Do you know anyone who hates you?
I tend not to hang out with people who hate me. No doubt they exist, but I am blissfully unaware. There's someone on the internet but they don't know me. I know me, and my opinion trumps theirs in this matter.

Lose your arm or your leg; which do you choose?
Leg. Because it would make handstands easier.

Has an animal ever bitten you?
I have been bitten by cats, dogs, horses, sheep, possums, mice, various fish, eels, and rabbits. My brother, however, has been bitten by an otter. He always did one-up me.

Would you ever do a ride along with a cop?
No because I would find it frustrating keeping my mouth shut about all the things cops are required to do that go against my principles. Can you imagine me in the back seat of a cop car where they are about to bust someone for possession of drugs?

Have you ever had to put a dog to sleep?
Yes. I lost my wee heading dog to cancer last year after 12 years of her being the most awesome dog ever. I've also shot a couple of dogs for worrying sheep. I know that sounds harsh but it's actually pretty humane for the dog - it's fucking horrible for the person that has to do it. After the second one I swore I'd never do it again. I have no real qualms about killing, but dogs are.. yeah nah. I won't.


Have you ever lost someone important to you?
Lost? As in, misplaced? No. I generally know where my people are. Lost as in they are not in my life any more? Yes, but weirdly enough I survived that. Lost as in they died? Yes. Both my parents are dead. They were pretty important to me. I tend to think that people leave themselves behind in patterns of thought and impressions they make on other people. My parents are very much still alive.

Do you change your MySpace page often?
MySpace? MYSPACE? Fuck I'm like really old and even I know that nobody changes their MySpace any more. I think I had one for a while, and it's been deleted for at least 5 years. Unless there’s some cutting edge retro-hipster movement in which people use it and make their profiles as ugly as possible and fill them up with bands nobody’s heard of because they only ever play gigs in their Mum’s basement to a select group of people who were too stoned to leave.

Are you listening to music currently?
"Crash... crash... buuuurrrrrnnn, let it all burn..." *GNNG*


Or, I could just do what nounsandverbs did and ask you to suggest topics for me to write about. Last time I did that I got some gnarly ones and that was fun and interesting for a couple of days. I have Opinions, you see. ;-)

When I saw the elves getting down I was really disappointed in how my human mage did the White Girl Shuffle. ;-/ She's so fricken uptight.

The male draeni 'dad dance'. I'm always really jealous of the undead headbanging dance - ('cos I'm a bit dad like that!)

And here I was picturing you headbanging.

The dancing in ME is really bad too - only the Asari have The Moves.

I will admit to headbanging, and the occasional air guitar. It's only my deep hatred of the undead that stops me rolling one of them - undead rogues in pvp - grrrr - and just imagine the unholy stench of the Undercity...

One day I'll try another game - I have no idea who the Asari are.

Wouldn't losing a leg throw off your balance, handstand-wise? You'd have to keep adjusting for the lack of weight on one side.

You'd quickly adjust to that (quicker than you'd adjust to trying to press your entire weight off one arm anyway), and think how much lighter your bottom half would be!

Ohhh I love taking that idea for topics too!

I want to do handstands and stuff... I'm thinking of joining a gym or taking classes of some sort soon.

Haha is this you having just finished hell week and looking for more topics to write about?

I thought you'd be all "Today I brushed my teeth and had a sandwich and watched TV. The End."

I had to look that one up, and yes, it's official - ALL the races beat humans at dancing in WoW.

OK this is just a mod but totally wins because of Sten doing the zombie dance and Oghren shaking his booty:

I am glad to hear you never misplaced a person dear to you *G*

The Myspace question just shows how long this meme has been around. And around. And around...

I wonder about that misplacing people thing - do they go where all the odd socks are?

Naaaah! The socks are in the little socks compartment in the back of the dryer. Don't you ever empty that?
