[ x ] The story behind your lj user name - Well, I had just finished reading Mercedes Lackey's Robin and the Kestrel when I first created my furry persona. I was a bit bored with all the other names I'd used online, so Kestral was born.
[ x ] Are you a lesbian - No. Not a lesbian, not even bi. I did experiment when I was younger, but.. I am very happy with my current partner, and can't imagine anyone else coming along to change my mind.
[ x ] Where do you live - In the real world, unfortunately.
[ x ] 4 words that sum you up - Stubborn, for sure. Umm.. Helpful, trustworthy, complicated? :)
[ x ] Wallet - el cheapo women's trifold piece of garbage. I wanted a nice one from the men's department, but... Target just didn't seem to carry them, and I was in a rush. *boggle*
[ x ]Hairbrush - Nice wide Vidal Sassoon soft-bristle brush.
[ x ] Toothbrush - Mentadent something or other.
[ x ] Jewelry worn daily - Small gold hoops, sometimes wristwatch.
[ x ] Pillow cover - A really pretty green gingham that Roho picked out. And.. whatever shirt he happens to be wearing when I choose to sleep on his shoulder. :)
[ x ] Blanket - Nice normal comforter that matches the pillowcases. :)
[ x ] Coffee cup - Huge LL Bean mugs. :9
[ x ] Sunglasses - Cheap pair from K-mart. Nothing special.
[ x ] Underwear - Um.. I wear them, yes.. currently navy blue cotton, if you must know.
[ x ] CD in stereo right now - Not a thing.
[ x ] Tattoos - Considering how much I hate pain, a tattoo has never been an option.
[ x ] Piercings - One in each ear. See tattoos for my thoughts on bodypiercings.
[ x ] What you are wearing now - Blue and white striped shirt, jeans, and birkenstocks.
[ x ] Hair - Shoulder length, muddy brown. Again, nothing special. Currently braided.
[ x ] Makeup - I don't own any, actually.
WHO or WHAT (was/is/are)
[ x ] In my mouth - A piece of ice
[ x ] In my head - Mariah Carey's "All I want for Christmas". Please. Shoot me.
[ x ] Wishing - I could come home from vacation to a new job. Or a winning lottery ticket. Either would work. :)
[ x ] After this - I will wait 30 minutes and head home from work.
[ x ] Talking to - Brendan and my buddy Regan
[ x ] Eating - Nothing at the moment.
[ x ] Fetishes - That would be telling..
[ x ] If you could get away with it and murder anyone, who would it be and for what reason - I'd say my ex husband, but there's much more misery in store for him alive.
[ x ] Person you wish you could see right now - My parents. This is the second holiday season without them in as many years.
[ x ] Is next to you - No one. I have a cube all to myself.
[ x ] Some of your favorite movies - Mm. Conspiracy Theory, Momento... There are tons of others, far too many to name.
[ x ] Something you're looking forward to in the upcoming month - Not having to go back to work until Jan 2.
[ x ] The last thing you ate - Manicotti
[ x ] Something that you are deathly afraid of - Being rejected by the ones i love.
[ x ] Do you like candles - Yes.
[ x ] Do you like hot wax - It's pretty when you use it in certain ways (for crafts), but not in a sexual sense, no.
[ x ] Do you like incense - It's usually too overpowering. I generally prefer candles.
[ x ] Do you like the taste of blood - It tastes...earthy. And I can see why it was used in a lot of old rituals. But I would never deliberately seek it out.
[ x ] Do you believe in love - Yes.
[ x ] Do you believe in soul mates - Yes, but like Gen, I think it's a very rare, special thing, and not something that comes along to everyone. It takes just as much work as any other relationship.
[ x ] Do you believe in love at first sight - No. Love should be the attraction to a person's mind and heart, not their body.
[ x ] Do you believe in Heaven - Yes, but I don't think it's going to be like anything we expect.
[ x ] Do you believe in forgiveness - Yes, but I have to see that the person is truly repentant.
[ x ] Do you believe in God - Yes. Like most people, I find the presence of some sort of God to be a validation of my existence.
[ x ] What do you want done with your body when you die - I think I'll be beyond caring, at that point. Although the idea of cremation and having my ashes scattered somewhere special is kind of appealing.
[ x ] Who is your worst enemy - There's no one I consider my enemy. There are a lot of people I seriously dislike though. :p
[ x ] If you could have any animal for a pet, what would it be - A CHEETAH! (like you couldn't see THAT coming)
[ x ] What is the latest you've ever stayed up - 48 hours. Drove between Baton Rouge and Alexandria, Louisiana 3 times during that period (4 hours each way). I was insane when I was in college...
[ x ] Ever been to Belgium - I've been outside the US once. An hour spent in Cuidad Acuna, Mexico.
[ x ] Can you eat with chopsticks - Quite proficiently!
[ x ] What's your favorite coin - I like quarters. They're so versitile!
[ x ] What are some of your favorite candy -
[ x ] What's something that you wish people would understand - That there's no excuse for selfish behavior. That, or that they actually have to work (it's a dirty word, I know) to make things happen, that life won't be perfect if they just sit there and wish for it.
[ x ] What's something you wish you could understand better - How to.. let go of the past.
[ x ] What's one thing you want to make happen for tomorrow - Lots of boring things. Packing, chores, perhaps some quality time with the fennec before we leave for vacation. I don't expect a lot from my life. I work hard to be where I'm at, and if I'm not quite happy with the rate of progression to my goals, I know I've done all I can, and that things don't always work out the way I want them to.
