63 questions you have never been asked

Liityinpä toukokuun alkupuolella sellaiseen nettijutskaan kuin Swap-bot. Siellä vaihdellaan kaikenlaista, menee ja lukeehäntä ihan itse etusivulta. Koska materialistisemmassa muodossa olevien sekä lähettämieni että vastaanottamieni hommelien kuvat ovat toisaalla, laitan tänne nyt alkuun esille yhden sähköpostiswapin tuotokseni. Swapin järjestäjältä on lupa saatu. Ideana oli siis lähettää kymmenelle osallistujalle sähköpostina vastaukset 63 kysymykseen. Nämä vastaukset ovat siis kesäkuun seitsemänneltä, eivät tältä päivältä.


1. First thing you wash in the shower?
- My chest. It's a natural place to start as it is the first place where the water hits.

2. What color is your favorite hoodie?
- I only have two hoodies and they're both green so I guess I have to say green.

3. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again?
- That was my fiance so I definitely would.

4. Do you plan outfits?
- Sort of. Being practical and comfy are my top priorities here but I can't feel comfortable with something that is ugly or doesn't match at all.

5. How are you feeling RIGHT now?
- A bit anxious. I'm doing my best avoiding reading a book about general linguistics for a university entrance exam. Swap-bot and silly questionnaires are good excuses...

6. What’s the closest thing to you that's red?
- A piece of red ribbon on my desk, something I didn't put in a red matchbox I swapped some weeks ago.

7. Tell me about the last dream you remember having?
- Last night I had a dream about a little boy my grandmother was taking care of (there is no such boy really and my grandmother died in 2007). He wanted to do some sports and we were wondering whether my grandmother knew what basketball was like. (She was born in 1915 and never grasped the idea of pop music, the only music for her were the hymns at church so I had a reason to think she didn't know what basketball was.)

8. Did you meet anybody new today?
- I haven't been out today yet, I'm at home alone so I haven't met anyone at all.

9. What are you craving right now?
- Any food would do, I should go and make myself some lunch anytime soon.

10. What comes to mind when I say cabbage?
- A light green color and cartoon rabbits.

11. Are you emotional?
- Yes I am. Unfortunately especially any negative feelings tend to be quite strong. Much easier to be super upset than to be super happy. Nordic melancholia, I guess...

12. Have you ever counted to 1,000?
- I have tried! Like when counting sheep when trying to fall asleep or when being so bored and there's nothing better to do. But I always lose count sometime after three hundred.

13. Do you bite into your ice cream or just lick it?
- I lick it. Biting into cold things makes my teeth ache and since ice cream isn't something you eat when you're hungry but because it tastes good I lick it because it last longer that way.

14. Do you like your hair?
- Yes I do. It's long and thick and I've found a dye that works for me right now.

15. Do you like yourself?
- Now that's a tougher question! I like some things about myself but not all.

16. Would you go out to eat with George W. Bush?
- It depends. If I got to choose the restaurant and he paid for the meals, then yes. And if he kept quiet!

17. What are you listening to right now?
- My favorite radio station. The people are talking about contract killers. Wonder if it has anything to do with the terrible song they just played.

18. Are (were) your parents strict?
- No, they trusted me to make smart choices.

19. Would you go sky diving?
- I would although I have a fear of falling and hurting myself.

20. Do you like cottage cheese?
- Yes but I don't eat it very often.

21. Have you ever met a celebrity?
- Hmmm... No one terribly well known or anything but when I studied for a year at a folk high school one of my teachers was the guitar player of a then quite popular rock band. So I met him almost every day for nine months.

22. Do you rent movies often?
- Never. I rarely watch movies at all. I usually watch them on the television.

23. Is there anything sparkly in the room you're in?
- Some jewelry.

24. How many countries have you visited?
- Let's count: Sweden, Norway, Russia, Estonia, Germany, Turkey. That's six.

25. Have you made a prank phone call?
- When I was a kid, yes. My friend and I called our classmates' homes and made funny noises and then hung up.

26. Ever been on a train?
- Yes and I'm going to take another ride on Wednesday morning at five to six again. Off to the uni entrance exam...

27. Brown or white eggs?
- As long as they're chicken eggs the color doesn't matter.

28. Do you have a cell phone?
- Of course I do. It's a Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 and I got it last year in May.

29. Do you use lip balm?
- Only the kinds that heal and only when there's something to heal.

30. Do you own a gun?
- I don't go hunting and I don't live in a dangerous environment so I don't need one.

31. Can you use chop sticks?
- Yes! I practised with some drinking straws and crushed pineapple when I was a kid. It would feel so weird to eat with a fork and a knife at an Asian restaurant.

32. Who are you going to be with tonight?
- Just by myself, reading the book mentioned at answer #5.

33. Are you too forgiving?
- I guess I am.

34. Ever been in love?
- Yes I have and I currently am too.

35. What is your best friend(s) doing tomorrow?
- Go ask her/them, I don't know! They live too far away so we don't meet very often.

36. Ever have cream puffs?
- I'm not sure what they even are.

37. Last time you cried?
- I've been so busy lately that I guess I haven't had any time to cry!

38. What was the last question you asked?
- I asked someone if we could meet this week intead of next week so I could plan my train travels more easily.

39. Favorite time of the year?
- I'm glad to live in a country (Finland) where we have four seasons since I need them all. I need all of them, I get bored so easily.

40. Do you have any tattoos?
- No I don't. Sometimes I feel like having one but I don't know what kind of a picture and where to put it.

41. Are you sarcastic?
- Me? Nooo... >:-}

42. Have you ever seen The Butterfly Effect? (for those who don't know, it's a movie)
- No I haven't.

43. Ever walked into a wall?
- At least once! I was four or so and the next day there was going to be photos taken at my daycare center. I walked or ran into a wall and ended up having a small but visible bruise on my forehead. Luckily my mother managed to make me a hairdo to cover it!

44. Favorite color?
- As I said, I get bored easily. My favorite colors change quite often too. Still, I have a tendency to go back to red, green and purple most often.

45. Have you ever slapped someone?
- Yes I have but not so hard that they would bleed or be otherwise seriously hurt.

46. Is your hair curly?
- A bit wavy.

47. What was the last CD you bought?
- I don't buy CDs anymore... It must have been one by a Finnish girl rock band PMMP some years ago.

48. Do looks matter?
- To some extent. If we're talking about choosing your life partners here I'd say I appreciate being clean and shaven and dressing up in clean clothes that fit and suit you.

49. Last text you received?
- The one where my fiance said good night to me.

50. Is your phone bill sky high?
- Not at all. The biggest part of it is the montly instalment of the phone itself. I only make a couple of calls a month and send less than a hundred SMS.

51. Do you like your life right now?
- Kind of. As I'm unemployed I have time for things but then again I don't have very much money. And I'm getting bored already.

52. Do you sleep with the TV on?
- No, what's the point?

53. Do you have good vision?

- I prefer not to waste my resources on hating but I sure dislike many people.

55. How often do you talk on the phone?
- A few times a month, not even weekly.

56. The last person you held hands with?
- My fiance.

57. What are you wearing?
- A black summer dress, some sort of leggings and a pair of selfmade woolly socks. Don't match but I'm alone at home so I don't care. If I'm going out I'll change.

58. What is your favorite animal?
- Cats.

59. Where was your last picture taken?
- In my parents' living room. There was an event on Facebook where you wore a black t-shirt for a day to represent the black hole in people's hearts caused by homophobic people. I wore one and took a picture and posted it on Facebook.

60. Can you hula hoop?
- I used to when I was younger.

61. Do you have a job?
- No I don't. That's why I'm applying for universities. I could wipe my bum with my previous degree.

62. What was the most recent thing you bought?
- Some groceries.

63. Have you ever crawled through a window?.
- As a child, yes. When I was ten or so I crawled through a window with my friend (the same one I made prank calls with!) at her house and climbed on the roof to drop down Barbie dolls with plastic bags as parachutes. And when we were on a class trip and were accommodated in a hostel we crawled through the girls' room window and sneaked to the boys' window to see what they were up to. Oh happy memories :-)
