piercings: 2 in left ear, 1 in right.
tattoos: none yet.
get along with parents: they are among my best friends and I feel tremendously lucky to have them living nearby and to be able to see them regularly and that we got past the years where we didn't approve of each other.
bedtime: natural bed time is around midnight-2am, but the OH likes me to go to bed earlier, so between 10pm and 2am.
who on LJ have you been friends with the longest: nimma.
what's on the wall of your room: Carey Moore and Carol Grigg prints, Sandman collages, a quilt calendar, framed cards of 3 big cats, framed collage of advertising slogans, various masks.
what's your biggest wish at the moment: that my 16 year old Siamese cat, Selkie, isn't seriously ill
what are you thinking right now: my SAD light is awfully bright.
what's the background on your computer: a photo of mountains from above the clouds.
if you could change one thing about your appearance, what would it be: I wish I had thick, dark eyebrows.
can you sing: Yes. My favorite thing to sing is Celtic ballads.
HAVE YOU EVER
broken someone's heart: Probably, but I don't know for sure.
had your heart broken: Yes.
been in love: Yes.
cried when someone died: Yes.
wanted someone you knew you couldn't have: Yes.
broken a bone: Yes.

DO YOU BELIEVE IN
love at first sight: No, but it has happened to me.
god: Usually. I have a whole bunch of "takes" on this, and I haven't decided on one over the others.
kisses on the first date: If mutually desired, yes.
monsters: Human ones, yes.
horoscopes: No, but they are fun to play with.
aliens: I usually think it's likely there are other life forms in the universe.
ghosts: Not as such. I believe that I can talk to people who have died, but I have never had any of them visit me on their own or take a form that is accessible to my ordinary waking consciousness.
heaven: Not as such. I sometimes believe that after I die I will become a part of the universal all, and I think if there were any "myself" left to experience that, it would be a very nice experience, so that might be called Heaven, I suppose.
hell: I believe that Hell is something that happens to some of us, sometimes, for various reasons, while we are alive.
WHICH IS BETTER
Coke or Pepsi: Don't drink the sugared stuff. Will drink any brand of non-sugared cola.

girls or guys: I'm embarrassed that I care, but I seem to have a general preference for girls.
flowers or candy: Usually flowers. Around my house, they last longer.

quiet or loud: Usually quiet, except when I am driving in the car and I'm mad and I'm listening to rock music.
pools or hottubs: Usually pools.
blondes or brunnettes: I tend to visually prefer dark hair / dark skin.

cry because of someone's mean words: Yes, but only my OH's. If other people say mean things I tend to go silent and cold-hearted, but not cry.
