The Time-Waster Meme

Because y'all don't know nearly enough stupid and useless things about me. (And because my brain doesn't seem to want to function well enough to do a "real" post.) Got this particular time-waster from Julie (and have since seen it at a few others) and decided to go ahead and play even though it's very obviously geared more at teenagers or early 20's adults than middle-aged women. The instructions were this - Bold what is true about you So here we go... APPEARANCE I am shorter than 5'4". I am taller than 5'11". I have many scars. I tan easily. I don't shave my legs. I wish my hair was a different color. (I MAKE my hair be the color I want. HA!) I have a tattoo, or more. I am self-conscious about my appearance. I have/had braces. I wear glasses just to read. I would get plastic surgery if it were 100% safe, free of cost, and scar-free. I've been told I'm attractive by a complete stranger. I have/had more than 2 piercings.

I've stolen something from my job. I've been fired. I've skipped school. EMBARRASSMENT I've slipped out a "lol" in a spoken conversation. Disney movies still make me cry. I've peed from laughing. I've snorted while laughing. I've laughed so hard I've cried. I've glued my hand to something. I've laughed till some kind of beverage came out of my nose. I've had my pants rip in public.

(Sometimes anyway, although I can be pretty picky about who, when, where, and how!) I've been kissed in the rain. I've hugged a stranger. I've kissed a stranger. HONESTY/CRIME I am a terrible liar. (I have no idea what this means. Terrible like not good at lying?? Or terrible like doing it all the time?? I refuse to answer on the grounds that I don't understand the satement.)

I've been in a fist fight I've witnessed a crime I've been arrested I've shoplifted (I hated that category because it makes me sound horrible, but nearly everything I bolded is based on things that happened many, many years ago!! Also, when did "bold" become a verb??) DEATH & DYING I'm afraid of dying. I've fantasized about my own death. I hate funerals. I've seen someone dying. Someone close to me has attempted suicide. Someone close to me has commited suicide. (Actually this person's death was ruled an accident. But he'd tried to kill himself before and, given the circumstances of both his life at the time and how he died, I've always believed that the "accident" wasn't so very accidental. So.) I've planned my own suicide.--In the past--Don't worry, I'm not suicidal now. I've written a eulogy for myself. MATERIALISM I own over 5 rap CDs. I own an iPod or MP3 player.

I have no idea what I want to do for the rest of my life. My answers are totally honest. Oooooh, did that last one surprise you?? Everyone else has bolded (shudder) that line about being totally honest, so I deliberately lied about one item just to keep you on your toes. Bwahahahahaaaa! I'll try for real post tomorrow, honest.
