Oh sweet stupidity of life at last I've found yooooooooou!/End Singing

Right, right, musical topical post eventually, but first a stupid stupidity as gacked from my darlink sweister....

1. What does your [Blog Title] name mean? It comes from something Kristen said or wrote to me once. We were discussing all the beautiful things that we never take the time to truly capture (in this case a la words) and lamenting such passing beauty. She said that she would paste the phrase above her door to remind herself to capture the moments.

2. Elaborate on your default icon? Hwell, Blogger doesn't really have icons as such, but the pictures on this page are: 1) (Above) the pic of me Jules took because Jules takes the best portraits; 2) (Left Top) "The Sense of Sight" because it always reminds me of the Chesterton quote that the difference between Western Christian images and Eastern Pantheistic ones is that the angels and saints' eyes are open and looking upward; 3) (Left Bottom) another pic of me Jules took because it's all sorts of theatre-y. And just for kicks and giggles, my AIM Icon is a moving .gif I made of Sawyer from Lost and my Yahoo one is one of those little avatars one can make - I look all sorts of Francophile in it. Oy. Rather solipsistic....

3. Make up a question. Why does a chicken? I don't know why.

4. What's your current relationship status? I have loads of relationships! Oh, you mean romantically? Hrm. Define romance....

5. What EXACTLY are you wearing right now? A cold nose, glasses, a watch but not my broken ring, my green Franciscan sweatshirt with matching T-shirt, the embroidered jeans with the flowers up the left leg, embroidered white socks with leafy patterns, and my zip-up quasi-blackboots. Oh, and two green hairclips. The rest is silence.

6. What is your current problem? Decisions.

7. What do you love most? You said "what" not "who"! (She crowed victoriously.) Easy. Theatre.

8. What makes you most happy? After number 7, isn't that redundant?

9. Are you musically inclined? I'm way past inclined. I'm vertical.

10. If you could go back in time and change something, what would you change? The French Revolution. Vive la sacre coeur!

11. If you MUST be an animal for ONE day, what would you be? I would so be a lioness. Yeeeeeeeeeeeeessssssssssss....

12. Ever have a near death experience? Not physcial death, no. Emotional death, nearly once. "Scared to death" often. But otherwise, I'm good.

13. Name an obvious quality you have. An obvious quality? I suppose Dorifishness - but I'm not sure that's obvious to everyone outside my family. Passive agressiveness, perhaps. General cheeriness otherwise? A fondness for chocolate and arabesques? Indecisiveness?

14. What's the name of the song that's stuck in your head right now? It goes back and forth between "So Happy Together" and the song from VM that goes "Are ringing joyful and triumphant" (dunno the name of the song).

15. Who did you cut and paste this from? The lovely but beautiful Julie

16. Name someone with the same birthday as you. Went to the internet for this. Hey, happy exact shared birthday to James Preston Trexler, Jr., born Sept. 10, 1977 in Raleigh, Wake Co., NC.!!! For those sharing the date but not the year, check here. Yay for Schiller!

17. Have you ever vandalized someone's private property? Not that I know of.... I've been vandalized by private property if you count the number of times I've fought with sand/gravel/cliffs and the sand/gravel/cliffs won....

18. Have you ever been in a fight? I've had my fair share of arguments. But nothing physical, really. I've apparently been in at least two "fights" that I was unaware were occurring until much after the event.

19. Have you ever sung in front of a large audience? The audience is NEVER large enough.

20. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex? Oh look! A guy!

21. What do you usually order from Starbucks? I don't. I prefer Ariba or the Border's cafe. But if at any of these establishments, I get mint hot chocolate with whip cream and then sprinkle some cinnamon on top. I'm particular.

22. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity? Patty said I looked like this one picture of the Blessed Virgin Mary! Otherwise, no - no, not really.

23. Do you still watch kiddy movies or TV shows? Heck yeah! And I read from the Young Adults section! Oh, sure. Best stuff out there, some days!

24. Did you have braces? Yup. Could probably use them again, actually.

25. Are you comfortable with your height? Yup.

26. What is the most romantic thing someone has ever done for you? Again, define romance. And I'm not just being weird about the word. I'm being English major about it. But, OK, it'd probably be any one of the various times of real intimacy with God.

27. Do you speak any other languages? I can get by in French and Sign Language. I can get around in German. I know important words in Italian and can sing a few arias. I can follow a Latin Mass. I know two Polish words, one Estonian word, and the phrase "Do you want to live?" in Japanese. In short, I know enough that I can mutter in other languages, quiet a class with another language, and otherwise get me into trouble with Europeans who think I'm one of them and then find out that I'm not.

28. Do you have a crush on someone on LJ? Juuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuules! Or, at least, I crush her. Hmmmmmm.

Mood: Well, that was a total waste of time
Music: A la the mental jukebox: I've got a crush on you, cutie pie!
Thought: Time to switch the laundry....
