Failure. I hate losing, hate not being the absolute best of everyone. I guess it's a pretty big weakness of mine that I can't let myself ever be substandard, or even average.

Same question.

In life?  Looking back on my deathbed and realizing that I should've taken more risks.

In movies, it's zombies/mutants, because they're more real to me than other "monsters" like vampires or whatnot.  I'll tell you a secret:  when I was younger I was absolutely terrified of the little demon from "Cat's Eye".  I just knew he was going to come in to my bedroom when I was sleeping.



What's more embarrassing:  getting to an appointment very late, or being somewhere you're not supposed to be and not realizing it?

Well, if I didn't realize I wasn't supposed to be there, I wouldn't be embarrassed. :D So I'd have to say getting to an appointment late. I hate it, 'cause I'm usually worried that I'm inconveniencing the person I'm supposed to be meeting.

Have your typing skills gotten better, the same, or worse over the last year?

WAY better. I got my computer-based job about this time last year, and since then, I can type about 20-30 WPM better than before, and I can do it without looking at the keyboard, too.

Have your time-management skills gotten better, stayed the same, or gotten worse over the last year?

Gotten worse.  Without question.  Sometimes I feel like my life is out of control, and I don't recall feeling that way a year ago as often as I do now.

Paper, rock, or scissors?

Rock. Want to know why? Cause I read this joke once that's really funny. It goes like this:

"Okay, I understand that scissors beats paper
and I get how rock beats scissors
but there's just no way that paper can beat rock.
Paper is supposed to magically 'wrap around' rock, leaving it immobile?
Then why can't paper do that to scissors?
In fact, forget scissors!
Why can't paper do this to people?
Why aren't sheets of college-ruled notebook paper constantly leaping out of their folders and attempting to suffocate students as they take their notes?
I'll TELL you why!
It's because paper can't beat ANYBODY.
A rock would tear that crap up in about two seconds!
Every time I play rock-paper-scissors, I always choose rock.
That way, when somebody claims they've beaten me with their paper
I punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say something like
'Oh, crap, sorry, I thought paper would protect you.'"



Movies or live theater?

Movies by far because in a live theater I could smell their farts. :-X[spoiler][/spoiler]

The only people who really like dark chocolate are those who've never tried decent milk chocolate.

With caramel.


Which is more annoying:

While I like the scrolling text, it gets my vote as the most annoying of the three b/c I have to wait to see it come by.

Will you save the last HP book when it comes out, reading it slowly to make the magic last OR will you tear into it immediately devouring every word so that you will know what happens as soon as possible?

Which is your favorite superhero franchise and why? (like X-men, Spiderman, Batman, Heroes, etc.)

I always liked Batman b/c I have kind of a dark nature.  (Gasp!  Surprise!  Slytherin!)  Best comics, too.

The Spiderman movies have totally kicked the crap out of any other superhero movie, though.  Third one looks to be even better.

And I love love love love Heroes now.  I never miss an episode.  I will kill you if you get in the way of my Heroes.  Understand?????

It's all I have left now that Scrubs.... *sob*.... Scrubs will soon be no more....



Out of all the sequels coming out this summer, which are you more excited to see?  (Not counting Harry, of course.)

Eh, I'm not a big sequel person, but probably the only one I //will// go see (besides Harry) is Shrek. Superman looks okay, but only DVD worthy in my book. Pirates I probably won't even watch. I established that I want to be the only person in America who doesn't watch it, or at least the only female under the age of 35. ^_^

If you had to pick a decade of music (70's, 80's, etc.) to listen to for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

80s, without a doubt.  How can not love a time when you could hear Duran Duran, LL Cool J and Van Halen?!?!?!

What will the Harry Potter void in your life come August?
