The Florence Thing: Elaina Style

1. First name: Elaina

2. Were you named after anyone?: Does a DTD song count?

3. Do you wish on stars?: Only the shooting variety.

4. When did you last cry?: Yesterday.

5. Do you like your handwriting? Not when I'm writing fast enough for it to be useful.

6. What is your favorite meat?: Chicken. Shrimp.

7. What is your birth date?: November 7th, 1986

8. What is your most embarassing CD?: A Nelly CD that Masa gave me for my 15th birthday.

9. If you were another person, would you be friends with you?: Doubtful. I'd like to think I'm a decent human, but I'm most certainly a lousy friend.

10. Are you a daredevil?: I'm generally a wimp, but I've been known to suprise myself.

11. Have you ever told a secret you swore not to tell?: Hasn't everyone? I have.

12. Do looks matter?: Increasingly, suprisingly, no.

13. How do you release anger?: I started to say that I'm your typical door-slamming, tantrum-throwing bitchy bitch; flaming, but harmless. If we're talking anger that's been pent up though(which it has to be before it's released) ...then that's a whole nuther animal.

14. Where is your second home?: Bayside, Chiba.

15. Do you trust others easily?: Sometimes. I'm cynical, but ridiculously naiive. That would make me the queen of misjudgement.

16. What was your favorite toy as a child?: Anything that glowed in the dark.

17. What class in highschool do you think is totally useless?: None. Even if you don't end up using or remembering what you learned, your mind always benefits from the discipline of studying.

18. Do you have a journal?: Kind of a journal/prophecy book/quote book...thing. Florence and I tried our hand at some abstract Pollock-ish paintings. I stuck them on the cover. They closely resemble bird poop.

19. Do you use sarcasm a lot?: I used to. I learned it from ALISA!!!!! (hahaha!) I try hard to squelch it these days.

20. What are your nicknames?: I'm not very nickname-able, thank God. But I've been called Ena, Oui Oui (Don't ask.) El, E, Lainee, and Elijah.

21. Would you bungee jump?: Hell yeah!

22. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?: Yes.

23. Do you think that you are strong?: Mentally? Physically? Spiritually? Emotionally? What is this question? Oh well: No, no, no, and no, respectively.

24. Shoe size?: 23.5-24

25. Red/Pink?: Pink

26. What is your least favorite thing about yourself?: The I-ness of my shyness. My insecurity, my selfishness.

27. What do you miss most?: My family.

28. What color pants are you wearing?: Black.

29. What are you listening to right now?: Crickets and Florence.

30. Last thing you ate?: Coconut pudding!!!!!

31. What is the weather like right now?: Like nighttime in August.

32. Last person you talked to on the phone?: Ryan.

33. The first thing you notice about the opposite sex: Their smell.

34. Favorite drink: Right now...litchi-chu with ice tea

35. Favorite sport: Figure skating.

36. Eye color: Dark brown.

37. Do you wear contacts?: 50/50 between glasses and contacts. My naked eyes are very nearly blind.

38. Favorite food: Tempura soba, GOOD oden, KFC, Alisa's cooking. I have this obsession with mineral water right now, but that's not a food, is it.

39. Last movie you watched: Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Sweet, but weak.

40. Favorite days of the year?: Tuesdays.

41. Scary movies or happy endings?: Scary movies.

42. Summer or Winter: Summer and naked people everywhere.

43. Hugs or kisses?: Kisses. But doesn't a kiss generally include hugging of some sort?

44. Favorite dessert: Anything soft and creamy, nothing crunchy or warm.

45. Where do you want to live?: Where He wants me. If I wasn't a missionary...Jamaica. Yehehe!!!

46. What books are you reading?: The books Michelle brings me to read.

47. What's on your mouse pad?: No mouse pad, just a grungy desk.

48. Favorite smells: Kinmokusei, green tea, good cologne, wet asphalt, whiteboard markers, beer, bread baking, new books, shoe stores.

Oh no.
Dulcinea is a repressed memory.
How dare you traumatize me in this way, Cherish!!!!
I also left out Melanie and Leilani and Lena and Layla and Alana....because it's a little different from a nickname when someone just CAN'T REMEMBER YOUR NAME!

there's one right outside Bayside in the front yard, I think it blooms twice a year. That is certainly what heaven smells like.

I don't believe questionnaires are all at useful or insightful.
