As for my answer to "eat it or not?" I'd sneak it into my purse, fuck them and their stupid rules. Pfft.

Ewww, I don't like soup that much, ever. Pfft.

I answered, "Don't finish the meal. You paid for a good time, not making yourself sick." Truth is, though, I am unlikely to find myself in that situation. I am real pig, I can eat a lot. I also feel the need to say, I don't eat more than one desert-type thing every day! But today, I totally had twistler cherry-bite things AND a cupcake. And that's not atypical behavior for me.

For the last questions - okay, cheated a little. Goosebumps was obviously not the first book I ever read. I really struggled with reading until about the age of ten. I spent fifth grade reading all these goosebumps books that all my peers read in second grade and feeling so happy about it. The first books I actually read was probably something really boring like Goldilocks.

I used to think I was a real pig, too, but lately, I've been finding myself unable to finish meals more often than I'm left wanting more. It's weird!

I don't think a cupcake and twister cherry bites is all that much. Sounds delicious, in any case.

Goosebumps were fun. If they're the first books you really remember feeling something from, I'd say it could count, in its own way. :)

I didn't pick five characteristics for you, because I don't feel I know you well enough to do you justice, if that makes any sense.

Sure, that makes sense. Especially considering that there are no qualities like "loves to make polls" and "thinks turtles are super" available. :P

MAN I could PROBABLY have given a major thumbs up to the Golden Gate park area because the Legion of Honor was like SHIT YEAH and it was a CRAZY AWESOME day of exploration.

But clearly the important point is that red book of nursery whatevers. There was also a story about a turtle that wore a jacket. Except I don't think it was a turtle, because the turtle didn't need a jacket, because there were stones in the pockets to keep the whatever-not-a-turtle from floating up to the surface and clearly turtles don't need rocks for anything of that sort.

KIM ARE YOU SURE YOU ARE NOT A NEVER-NUDE WITH A GREEN THUMB??? Do they have Sims walking around all hiding cut-offs, then? Because that's kind of... frightening.

I'M TOTALLY UNSURE! I MAY EVEN BE A KLEPTOMANIAC >.> I think they do actually have cut-off wearing Sims! But I don't know for sure. That's half the reason I need to eventually buy this game -figure out the mystery!

My paranormal stuff is too involved to describe in one line, so, here! I lived in a weird house from the ages of 3 through 8. I grew really attached to that house, as young children tend to, but it hindsight it was pretty creepy... the location (in mountain foothills so it was always drizzly), the layout (floorplan designed by someone on weed, I swear), and just strange stuff. A couple times I vividly remember looking out the windows at night and see a green glowing man, like cartoon radiation poisoning style. That I will readily admit could have been my imagination at the age when kids can't really tell the difference between imagination and reality, but... this other time. My dad was out of town, so it was me, my sister, my mom, and my mom's friend in the house. In the middle of the night my sister woke up to the sound of really loud footsteps in the kitchen, and dishes rattling. She woke everyone up and I remember we all went and looked and there was, naturally, no one else in the house. And they were LOUD footsteps; my mom describes them as "hooves" and she thinks it was a demon -- around that time she reported seeing a lot of freaky things (like faces on the walls) that she also believes were demons. Ugh, that memory really creeps me out.

I also feel like I've had precognition many times, but of course that could just as easily be coincidence. I mean, sometimes it's really weird, as those instances often are, but I can't think of any specifics right now.

Sorry for rambling... I love this kind of stuff. XD

OMG creeepy! :(

I always say I wish I'd have a paranormal experience, but then I read/hear about people who've had them, and they sound terrifying for the most part.

You seem to have lived in one of the Lovecraftian houses by your description. Where exactly was the house?

As to the poll itself, regard my answers as "Been outside or close enough if talking France and museums in London", and not bothering to read closely enough to see that I was supposedly supposed to base the 5 adjectives on me, when think I only got to 3, anyway.

No need to be sorry - I am interested! Though yeah, this sounds pretty creepy.

So, restaurants in Europe don't do doggie bags, apparently -- or at least B tells me so, possibly to prevent me from mortifying us all by outing myself as American, I don't know -- and I find it SO. FREAKING. ANNOYING! Because I paid for the food dammit, it's mine! my precioussss! thief, Baggins, thief! what does it matter if I cannot finish it right this very instant?

I have meals where I eat nothing but dessert. Those are totally the best kind!

I remember when I visited the US and found out about the doggy bag, I thought it was so funny :D

From: [identity profile]
Yeah, I feel like the doggy bag option just makes logical sense. I have no idea why Europeans want people to get less than what they paid for, that's pretty odd to me!

Hahaha, yeah, they sure can be. I ate two pieces of cake for breakfast every day when I was on that mini-vacation with Anders. It was quite wonderful. :D

I don't go to the library. I buy every book I want. I don't like used things.

This is the first time I decided to go outside the box with my adjectives describing you. I realized I haven't seen you in SIX years and even though we were just classmates, I felt I had a good sense of you. My first choices are things like "neat" and "perfectionist" and "ambitious" and I'm not sure if I'm describing you as you were or as you are. But I'm seeing that a lot of other people chose those words too so I still feel like I know you, which is comforting.

It really doesn't seem like it's been six years since graduating high school. Man.

Anyway, this goes both ways! I would definitely choose some of the adjectives you chose for yourself, if asked to answer that question for you. So I guess I still know you, too, in a way! *revels in the knowing*

For the question about whether I'd eat it or not -- I'd eat as much as I could possibly fit, and then just give up. I wouldn't actually make myself sick.

As for my favourite tourist attraction out of that list (the majority of places I've been to aren't on there, and I find that odd! I mean, the Acropolis in Athens? Shouldn't that be on there?), I put the Magic Kingdom. I think Niagara Falls is beautiful and stunning, but it is SUCH a trashy tourist trap (on the Canadian side, anyway)... wax museums, Vegas-y places all around. Not cool.

I do have a public library card, but since I owe $40 worth of fines on it, I can't use it. :P I do use my student library card extensively, though.
