Who is your favorite fictional character?
What kind of weird, apocalyptic world would ever require people to post pictures on social media in order to stay alive? How much alcohol would you need to consume in order to watch a movie based on this idea? :D  Witty Rabbit
Enough for a very serious stupor.

Are there any questions you wish people would stop asking you?
"What's your favorite _____ PAP LIKE YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT"
So since my most recent anon has temporarily prevented me from answering questions (lol), I figure I'll go ahead and ask everyone a few; 👻 1) Does your wardrobe have a general "theme" or color palette? How would you describe your taste in clothing?  leigh ☾
Simple, cheap, and in a variety of primary colors.
Did you have any toys as a child that you were inexplicably afraid of?  Allison Campbell
I can't think of many toys that I would've bought or expressed explicit interest in that would've scared me, given that my parents were never into prank gifts. However, I do recall being mildly disturbed in hindsight by the fact that I still own a beat-up Empire Strikes Back Luke Skywalker with a detachable hand.

What kinds of food have you been eating a lot of lately? Do you tend to eat the same kinds of stuff over and over again, or do you prefer a more varied diet?  Witty Rabbit
Probably more carbs than are good for me, preferably in the form of delicious panini sandwiches and chow mien. I like to keep my palette diverse, but I like to balance it with old favorites more often than not.

What's your morning routine?
Wake up. Tell myself five more minutes. Wake up for real. Check my phone: email, social media, site I work for, etc. Step out of bed, get in the shower. Eat something. Get out the door to school or, if it's the weekend, hit the electronics.

Describe your favorite color without saying what color it is. 🌈  leigh ☾
A little Twitter bird told me how to answer this.
Do you believe the person you fall in love with is a reflection of who you are?  leigh ☾
I can't imagine why not. At their very worst, they mirror everything you fear about yourself and at their very best, they reflect everything you aspire to be.

Where do you get your best ideas?
My crystal ball.
What would you exchange life's lemons for if life's manager was willing to make a trade?  Witty Rabbit
Probably a large pot of Earl Grey tea, most likely.

If you had to dye your hair and keep the color for the next five years, what color would you choose?
Probably grey. I'd be down for appearing sagely before my time.

Q2 - what current event, popular media, or social issues aren't getting the attention or recognition that they deserve, in your opinion? why do you think they are being ignored?  leigh ☾
I would think Bernie Sanders' campaign deserves as much mainstream recognition as Donald Trump's doesn't.
You've been given a huge grant to start a business, but there's a condition: You must choose a name that has a pun in it related to your business somehow. What kind of business do you run, and what's its name?  Allison Campbell
Lost and Hound, an animal shelter abused and neglected furry things of all kinds: dogs, cats, the works.

Do you think of yourself as a picky eater? What types of food do you refuse to eat?  Witty Rabbit
No doubt anything that's moving or produced inhumanely. And brussel sprouts, despite what ‎@shehitsback tells me. Didn't cut it, I'm afraid.

jumping on the bandwagon and made another quiz. obviously no pressure if you don't know me (i sent this to everyone i follow), and delete this if you want! 💗 http://www.quizyourfriends.com/take-quiz.php?id=1509201004487657&lnk&  leigh ☾
I apparently know you quite well, old friend. Snagged a 9/10. :)
Who are your favorite people to follow on Instagram?
What is this Instagram you speak of? I know it not.
so i went through my friends list & unfollowed inactive users & users who didn't give thoughtful responses. so if you get this message, that means i still follow you! also, if anyone wants to be taken off/put on my list (given that you'll be active & put thought into your answers), let me know. 💗  leigh ☾
I'm flattered. 😀

What's the last book you read?
"A Brief History of Video Games" by Richard Stanton and "Fables" by Bill Willingham. The former's quite a read for anyone that's as invested in the medium or it legacy, particularly the console wars and their relationship with PCs. The latter's fantastic in its own right for anyone interested in fairy tales, neo-noire, and superb character drama. I would recommend both.
If you could go back in time and participate in any historical event from all of humanity's past, which would you choose and who would you go back as?
Jesus. And I would make it clear that I loved gays.

🌿 Describe to me what you see out of the nearest window. Take a picture, if you're comfortable doing so! (I just realized I'm asking this at 9pm EST, so if all you see is darkness, either ignore this question or wait until morning. 🙈)  leigh ☾
