The first five (5) people to comment on this post get to request a sketch of a character of their choosing from me. (I just ask that if you got a sketch last time, you let someone else have a chance this time.)
I'll draw for these fandoms:
..but if there is something else you want that you know I'm familiar with, feel free to ask.
How many keys are on your keychain? Five. Two for my car, three house keys (one of which is for a lock that was replaced like four years ago and I should really just get rid of).
What curse word do you use the most? Hmm. I say "shite" a lot.
Do you own an iPod? No, don't see the need for one. I have a Discman that can read mp3s from cd, so I just have a lot of music burned to a few cds.
What time is your alarm clock set for? 9 am
How many suitcases do you own? I don't own any suitcases.
Do you wear flip-flops even when it's cold outside? Haha, yes. I wear flip-flops until there is lasting snow for the winter.
Where do you buy your groceries from? Sun-Mart, usually; there is one maybe 10-12 blocks from my house, and I like to ride my bike there and get my groceries.
Would you rather take the picture or be in the picture? Depends on the situation.
What was the last movie you watched? Ha, so random.
Do any of your friends have children? Yes.
If you won the lottery, what's the first thing you would buy? The first thing I would do is pay off all my debt (student loans, mostly). Then I'd buy a house, probably. Not a fancy mansion, just a cute little house.
Has anyone ever called you lazy? Probably, but I call myself lazy all the time.
Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep faster? Occasionally.
What CD is currently in your CD player? I don't listen to cds that much anymore, really. Most of the music I listen to these days are mp3s on my computer. Anyhoo, disc one of All Things Must Pass in my stereo; Shaft soundtrack in my computer.
Do you prefer regular or chocolate milk? Ugh, I can't stand chocolate milk. So, regular.
Has anyone told you a secret this week? No.
When was the last time someone hit on you? Ur, dunno. I am rather oblivious to that, actually; it usually takes one of my friends saying, "Psst, s/he is totally flirting with you," before I realize it.
What did you have for dinner? Hmm. I haven't eaten yet today. I should probably do that.
Do you wear hoodies often? Yeah, unless it's too hot.
Can you whistle? Yes.
Have you ever participated in a protest? Yes, a few.
Who was the last person to call you? My friend Jon Paul.

Do you think people talk about you behind your back? On occasion, I'm sure, but for the most part I don't think "people" (in general) care enough about me to bother.
What area code are you in right now? 218
Did you watch cartoons as a child? That implies I stopped watching them as an adult...
How big is your local mall? Eh, smallish. There is a good-sized mall in Fargo, so I suppose it didn't seem practical for it to be big.
How many siblings do you have? Two younger sisters and a younger brother.
Are you shy around the opposite sex? I tend to be shy at first around anyone I don't know.
What is your biggest regret? I don't have any huge thing that really stands out. If I have to think this hard about it, I probably don't really have one.
When was the last time you laughed so hard your sides hurt? Yesterday, with my friends, but now I can't remember what we were even laughing about.
What movie do you know every line to? The Princess Bride and Heavenly Creatures; several others that come close.
Do you own any band t-shirts? Several Beatles ones, a few They Might Be Giants ones, an All-Starr Band one, and a Kittie one, randomly (I think I wore it home from a girlfriend's house and just never gave it back to her).
When was your last plane ride? January; a flight back from Vegas where my sister had her wedding.
How many chairs are at your dining room table? I don't really have a dining room. But there are three chairs at my table, not that I ever eat there.
Do you read for fun? That question seems so odd; like, "do you breathe to prevent asphyxiation?" Of course I do.
Can you speak any languages other than English? Not well enough to say I "speak" them. I know a smattering of Spanish and German.
Do you do your own dishes? Yes, but not as often as I should.
What color is your bedroom painted? That generic eggshell-not-quite-white color that so many apartments are. I keep meaning to paint it like a dark blue or purple, but never actually do.

Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop? Desktop. Lately I've been wanting a laptop, though I really don't need one.
Which do you make, wishes or plans? Both.
Are you always trying to learn new things? I like to, but sometimes I'm not actively seeking new knowledge.
Do you shower on a daily basis? Usually, unless it's the weekend.
Are you currently wanting any piercings or tattoos? There's a tattoo I want done, but I can never afford it.
Do you believe that the guy should pay on the first date? I think whoever asked out who should be prepared to pay for the whole thing, but I also think the askee should pay for their share, unless they really can't.
Can you skip rocks? Yeah, though I haven't done so in years.
Have you ever been to Jamaica? No.
What to snack on at the movie theaters? It just doesn't feel like the full movie-going experience unless I have some popcorn and something to wash it down with.

When was the last time you slept on the floor? I really can't remember. Sleeping over at a friend's house in college, maybe.

Do you like your living arrangement? Well enough, but I would like to move should the opportunity arise.
What is your mother's hometown? Ur, well, she grew up on a farm. The closest town was Erdahl, MN, though, which is one of those true "blink and you'll miss it" kind of towns (I think the population is 50).
How many hours of sleep do you need to function? Ideally six, but I often end up running on four or five; and can run passably well on just one or two for a few days running.

Do you believe in life on other planets? Yeah.
Have you ever been to Six Flags? No.
Who was the last person to piss you off? I don't get pissed off very easily. I was very angry about a certain situation a month or so back, but I'm not going to name names, because it's fandom related.

What was the last thing you ate? A slice of sausage pizza last night.
Do you get along better with the same or opposite sex? I suppose the same sex. *shrug*
What did you dress up as for your first Halloween? My first Halloween I was just under one year old and I can't remember at all, but I assume my mom drew an eye patch and stubble on me with a grease crayon and said I was a pirate, because that's what she did with the other kids when they were babies. The first time I remember picking my costume, I was Raggedy Ann.
How did your parents pick your name? I think I remember my mom saying that they'd planned a different one, but my dad at the last moment suggested my name and they went with that.

Do you own a digital camera? Yes, and I love it. I never get film developed.
If someone you had no interest in dating expressed interest in dating you, how would you feel? ...What do you mean, "if?" It's frustrating, because I have to be honest with them, but it usually ends up hurting their feelings and I hate doing that.

Who is your favorite Star Wars character? Han Solo, I suppose.
Does it annoy you when someone says they'll call but never do? Somewhat.
What books, if any, have made you cry? There are a few, but I cry every time I read The High King, at the part when Fflewddur burns his harp. (I've read the Chronicles of Prydain so many times I've lost count.)
Do you think you're attractive? At times, but mostly I just think I am extremely ordinary.
What are you allergic to? Nothing that I know of.
Are you a jealous person? Not extraordinarily.
What's your opinion on sex without emotional commitment? If both parties are aware and okay with the situation, go for it. If one person is using the other, though, that is extremely bad form.
Do you ever feel guilty after eating meat? No. My last name is essentially German for "meat-eater," actually. XD
If you were born the opposite sex, what would your name have been? No clue. Jesse.
Oh, lotus_faerie, I got the book. Thanks so much! I've read perhaps five of her short stories before and enjoyed them, and there are plenty in that collection that are new to me.
Bah, when does Avatar start airing new episodes again? I assume it's on a longer break now?
