Enormous tickybox meme

From feanelwa. I suspect this one is more fun to fill in than to read. (Click here to post your own answers for this meme.)

× I wear glasses or contact lenses.  (But I probably should.) I love to play video games.  (Some of them.) I've tried marijuana.  (I wouldn't bother anymore.)

I curse sometimes.  (Well, rather a lot actually.) × I have changed a lot mentally over the last year.  (A little.) × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.
I have broken someone's bones.  (Only my own.) × I have a secret that I am ashamed to reveal. × I hate the rain(Rain is teh win.)
I'm paranoid at times.  (Maybe a little) × I would get plastic surgery if it were 100% safe, free of cost, and scar-free.  (I dislike how fat I am, but otherwise am pretty happy with my appearance.) I need/want money right now.  (Would be nice not to need a new computer)
I love sushi. × I talk really, really fast.  (A bit fast maybe.) × I have fresh breath in the morning.  (Does anyone?)
I have long hair.  (By my standards. It needs cutting.) × I have lost money in Las Vegas. I have at least one sibling.  (Two sisters.)
I was born in a country outside of the U.S.  (I've never even been to the states.) × I have worn fake hair/fingernails/eyelashes in the past.  (Actually I don't think I have.

× I have a lot of mood swings(Not really.) I think prostitution should be legalized.  (It's always going to happen and being illegal makes it more dangerous.) × I slept with a roommate(I've never really had a roommate. And when I had housemates I also had a boyfriend who was one of them but that doesn't count.)
× I have a hidden talent(Not that I know of.) × I'm always hyper no matter how much sugar I have.  (Nah. Sugar doesn't make me noticably hyper anyway.) I have a lot of friends.  (Though I neglect some of them, and few are very close.)
× I have pecked someone of the same sex(I am not a bird, I do not peck.) I enjoy talking on the phone.   (Sort of.

I love to shop and/or window shop.  (ebay is not my friend, or at least I try and tell myself so.) I'm obsessed with my Xanga or Livejournal.  (But only a little bit, honest.) × I'm completely embarrassed to be seen with my mother(Not in the least, she's fab.)
I have a mobile phone. × I have passed out drunk in the past 6 months.  (I think I've only done so once in my life.) I've rejected someone before.  (Sorry.)
I currently like/love someone.  (*grin*) I have no idea what I want to do for the rest of my life.  (When I was at school I wanted to do Maths and nothing else. Then I studied it at Oxford and messed up and now it scares me. I'm fairly happy just muddling along though.) × I want to have children in the future.  (I want to have had children in the past.

× I think Halloween is awesome because you get free candy.  (I think halloween is fun for other reasons. Mostly turnip lanterns.) × I have dated a close friend's ex(I don't think so, but I have gone out with an ex's close friend.) I am happy at this moment.  (Yeah, I reckon.)

× I spend ridiculous amounts of money on makeup(Almost none. But god it's expensive.) × I plan on achieving a major goal/dream.  (I don't think I have any.) I am proficient on a musical instrument.  (Only just though, and my tone is shot due to not having played in years. I should practice.)
× I hate office jobs(Nah, they're useful.) × I went to college out of state.  (I'm not American. And the UK isn't really big enough to consider going to university in another city/county as equivalent. Oxford is about 170 miles from when I grew up.) × I am adopted.
× I am a pyro.   (No, but I do quite like fire.) × I have thrown up from crying too much.  (No, but I have thrown up from laughing too much.) I have been intentionally hurt by people that I loved.  (I think so, but only in a lashing out way because they were hurt too.)
× I fall for the worst people.  (Nah, they're all lovely.) I adore bright colours.  (Some of them. Notably properly bright pinks these days. Not pale girly pink.) × I usually like covers better than originals.   (I don't think I could say usually, but they're often good and interesting.)

× I have a tattoo(Never found anything I'd want permanently enough.) × I can't stand at LEAST one person that I work with.  (I can't think of anyone in any context that I'd say I can't stand.) × I am a caffeine junkie.  (My mum thinks I drink too much of it. I find I'm mildly immune to it anyway.)
× I am completely tree-huggy spiritual, and I'm not ashamed at all. × If I knew I would get away with it, I would commit at least one murder(No no no no no.) × I will collect anything, and the more nonsensical, the better.  (I did collect bus tickets as a kid.)

× I sleep with so many stuffed animals, I can hardly fit on my bed.  (They're all under the bed.) × If it weren't for having to see other people naked, I'd live in a nudist colony(What a stupid sentence.) I have terrible teeth.  (By american standards. More worried about state of gums.)

× I have lived in either three different states or countries(Only in England.

× I want to own my own business(No way no how.) × I smoke(No thanks.) I spend way too much time on the computer than on anything else.  (That sentence is broken, but I do probably spend too much time at computers.)
× Nobody has ever said I'm normal(Plenty of people have, and plenty of people have said I'm not. I'm no longer insulted by being thought normal.) Sad movies, games, and the like can cause a trickle of tears every now and then.  (Yeah, I'm soppy. No-one would believe this is the same girl who at age 8 didn't cry at E.T.) × I am proficient in the use of many types of firearms and combat weapons.
I like the way women look in stylized men's suits.  (Mmmm.) I don't like it when people are unpleased or seem unpleased with me.  (Unpleased. Stupid word. Do you mean unhappy or displeased? In either case I'd rather people weren't.) × I have been described as a dreamer or likely to have my head up in the clouds.
× I have played strip poker with someone else before.  (Strip snap and trivial pursuit yes, but not poker.) I have had emotional problems for which I have sought professional help.  ("emotional" - feh, more bad phrasing.

× I have travelled on more than one continent(Just: North Africa as well as Europe.) × I sometimes wish my father would just disappear.  (No! My dad's ace.) × I need people to tell me I'm good at something in order to feel that I am.  (Not need, but it does help.)
× I am a Libertarian. I can speak more than one language.  (French quite well, German a little. And I can count to 10 in Russian and Arabic so long as you don't mind an appalling accent.) I can fall asleep even if the whole room is as noisy as it can be.  (If I'm tired enough.)
I would rather read than watch TV.  (Usually.) × I like reading fact more than fiction.  (Nah, I rarely read non-fiction.) × I have pulled an all-nighter on an assignment I was given a month to do.
× I have no piercings. × I have spent the night in a train station or other public place.  (I don't think so.) × I have been so upset over my physical gender that I cried.  (No, but I did want to be a boy when I was a kid.)
× I once spent Christmas completely alone because there was a miscommunication on which parent was supposed to have me that night.  (My parents are still together.) × There have been times when I have wondered "Why was I born?" and may/may not have cried over it.  (No, but there have been times when I wished I didn't exist.) × I like most animals better than most people.  (Cats are good, but people are better.)
× I own a collection of retro games consoles. × The thought of physical exercise makes me shiver.  (No, but the thought of going to the gym might. Love cycling.) × I have hit someone with a dead fish.
× I am compulsively honest. × I was born with a congenital birth defect that has never been repaired. × I have danced topless in front of dozens of complete strangers.
× I have gone from wishing I was a girl to revelling in being a boy to feeling like a girl again in the span of five minutes, and not cared a whit for my actual sex. × I am unashamedly bisexual, and have different motivations for my desires for different genders.  (I agree with the first half, but have no idea what the second bit is getting at. I fancy boys and girls, though I tend to go for boys more. I don't feel I need to be seeing both.) × I sometimes won't sleep a whole night or eat a whole day because I forget to.  (I do very rarely forget to eat, but not for quite that long.)
× I find it impossible to get to sleep without some kind of music on.  (I find if I have music on I keep listening til the album ends.) × I dislike milk(I don't like it much, s'ok in things.) × I obsessively wash my hands.
× I always carry something significant around with me.  (Nope, I carry as little as possible.) × Sometimes I'd rather wear a wig in day-to-day life than use my own hair. × I've pushed myself to become more self-aware and thereby more aware of others.
× Even though I live on my own I still cry sometimes because I miss my mother. × I hand wrote all the HTML tags in this document.  (Yeah *right*. But I do usually do HTML by hand.) I've liked something which a majority of people claimed was either bad or weird.
× I have been clinically dead for a brief period of time. × Instead of feeling sympathy/empathy with people and their problems, I simply become annoyed. × I participate/have participated in auto drag races and won.
× I do not 'get' most comedy acts. × I don't think strippers are money-greedy or slutty for dancing. I don't like to chew gum.  (Never really got it.)
× I am obsessed with history/historical things and can't wait for someone to build a time machine so I can be the first to use it. × I can never remember for the life of me where I parked the car(I don't have one.) × I had the TEEN ANGST thing going for at least 2-3 years.  (2-3 weeks.)
I wish people would be more empathic and honest with each other.  (I guess.) × I play Dungeons and Dragons weekly.  (I do play games which are mildly derived from it.) I love to sing.  (Though I do it badly.)
× I want to live in my mother's basement when I grow up. I have a custom-built computer.  (If that means buying in bits rather than getting one off-the-shelf. Just because I had some bits and it was cheaper that way. It's broken anyway.) × I want to create a certain someone's babies, even though there's a 0% possiblity of ever achieving it.
× I would be in a relationship with one of my pets if they were human. × I've gone skinny-dipping. I've performed in three plays.  (Not since school though.)
I enjoy burritos.  (Mmmmm.) × I'm Irish and loving it.  (Oh god. I consider myself half Irish as my dad's from NI, but I'm half English too. Overall I'd call myself British.) I have a thing for redheads.  (A little bit.)
× I am a twin! × Most of the times, I'd rather do something intellectual instead of doing something generically 'fun'. × Once I set out to finish something, I always stay at it until it is completed before I move on to something else.  (Nope, I am a gadfly.)
I wish there were a way to erase past mistakes.  (God yes.) × I sleep more than 12 hours a day. × I wish I could be prouder of what I've accomplished, but it's never enough.
× I need more time to myself. × I wish I was more open-minded. × I hope that I go really prematurely grey.  (I've been going a bit grey since I was 13, it's still not enough to make me grey all over by a long way.)
I download songs from the internet.  (Only free ones though. And not ripped off ones.) × I've just reenacted chapter 58 of Death Note with my best friend. × I say random things to freak people out.
× I'm still a little mad about the ending of Death Note. × I love playing Truth or Dare. × I love listening to slow music, but I hate singing to it.
Music helps me remember that I am not alone.  (Music can make me think and feel all sorts of things.) × Playing my favorite sport makes me temporarily forget my problems. I think this survey is particularly long.
× I prefer my LJ friends to my real-life ones. × I can only hate someone that I love. × I've ordered an extra two shots of espresso to an Americano at Starbucks.
