I've been doing quite a bit of asking, so now y'all can ask me!

The problem with LiveJournal is that we think we're close, but really, we know nothing about each other.

So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me, something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about, or something you've always been curious about but have never asked, or something completely silly that you'd like me to answer for kicks. No limits on the range of questions, either: ask me anything you want to know about, whether it's a fannish opinion or a question about a fic of mine or trivia about my real life or my thoughts on events in the offline world.

Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you!

My favorite part is where it pegs me as being totally gender-neutral. I swear, if you saw me in real life, you'd know I was a girl! )

And this part really belongs on the gimp_vent comm, but I'm posting it here because sometimes the comments I get there disturb me )

Ok, enough of that. If I go on too much about that shit I won't shut up. [livejournal.com profile] ithildyn gave me five things to elaborate on. Here they are:

Your ideal fantasy long weekend
You're going to have dinner, and your magic fridge has just what you want.

I'm sure I can come up with five things I'd like y'all to elaborate on if anyone wants to play the "Five things" meme...
exhilaration: (me)
Ok so, comment on this post and I will ask you five questions. You will answer them in your own journal and repost this sentence or something resembling it along with them.

[livejournal.com profile] shidoikarji26 asked me these:

What do you like to be called (be it your screen name, your first name, a nickname, or a fabricated identity)?

My first name is Lara. That's what I like to be called. Whether or not I am a fabricated identity is classified information :P (I guess I'll answer to Miss Moralez but it might take you a few tries, lol)

What does your screen name mean/Where did it come from?

My original internet handle was Lara St. Muerte, referring to the fact that I liked to consider myself either immortal or the patron saint of death. I got a little older and thought that was just a bit too emo, and started using Lara Inside. Lara Inside was kind of intended to mean that I hide :P Like, inside :P It was meant to be silly. On livejournal Lara Inside wasn't available so I became Lara Everlong, naming myself for my favorite Foo Fighters song :P

Why do you use LiveJournal? What do you like about it?

I use livejournal because I am a sucker for minutia, and that can be found in abundance here on LJ. I like reading other people's journals more than I like writing in my own, but I write in mine as a form of fair trade, I guess.

Do you have any hobbies or favorite activities?

Um. Drinking beer could be considered a hobby, maybe. I do enough of it, lol. I dunno. I have a sketchbook that I draw in sporadically. I obsessively make playlists. I try to play guitar - that's about it though.

Who is your favorite family member, and why?

My favorite family member is my cousin Ryan, because he is the same age as me and looks like me, and we seem to understand each other in ways that only family members can. We don't see each other much or often and it always surprises me how much we turn out to have in common and how much we automatically get about each other. It's kinda cool.

From [livejournal.com profile] haro: Go to your calendar and find the first entry for each month of 2008. Post the first line of it in your journal, and that's your "Year In Review".

I did not have internet access in January, so there were no posts

February: Twenty Fucking Four

March: Bad Friend

April: Dear Self: You Suck. Please Cease To Fall Apart. Love Self.

May: Stuff And Whatever

June: Well Well

July: My Favorite Doctor/Rose Vid

August: Just So You Know I Don't Make This Shit Up

September: What Passes For Structured: Not An Only Child

October: Blegh

November: My Job Is My Social Life

December: Good Night For Nine/Rose Smut... Right?

And there you have it. My year has been made up of Nine/Rose fangirling, curse words in excess, dissatisfaction, and a couple of random stories.

My birthday is in January, and in my head I really see that as my personal New Year's, but I don't think I'm really going to redeem myself in just one more month. I'm turning twenty five and I'm really pretty disgusted with my life right now. I wish I could see it differently, but... nope. My life is not what I ever thought it would be, not what I planned it to be, not what I want it to be, and not something I'm proud of. I look at myself with such disgust... and I think I would be a happier person if I didn't, but it's a hard mindset to break.

So, ah, Krissy came over to "talk." I'm not really ready to talk about that yet. So I posted this instead.

Ten Top Trivia Tips about Lara Everlong!

  1. New Zealand was the first place to allow Lara Everlong to vote.
  2. If you lace Lara Everlong from the inside to the outside, the fit will be snugger around your big toe.
  3. If you put a drop of liquor on Lara Everlong, she will go mad and sting herself to death.
  4. The horns of Lara Everlong are made entirely from hair.
  5. Lara Everlong can jump up to sixteen times her own height.
  6. Fifty-two percent of Americans drink Lara Everlong!
  7. Most bottles and jars contain at least twenty-five percent recycled Lara Everlong.
  8. Lara Everlong can give birth ten days after being born, and is born pregnant!
  9. Without Lara Everlong, we would have to pollinate apple trees by hand!
  10. If you break Lara Everlong, you will get seven years of bad luck!
I am interested in - do tell me about

Like that bit about seven years of bad luck? Yeah, so don't mess with me.

So... I'm glad I got another job, I actually like it, it's not bad at all, and I'm only scheduled for two days next week. I'm seeing more and more why they hired me in the first place - I think their other applicants wanted at least twenty hours a week, and I said I wanted ten to fifteen. But my hours kind of dropped at my first job, because I guess everyone is home from college and they get priority on the schedule... not sure why, but that seems to be the way it's working.

I remember working Black Friday at the restaurant last year and it was absolute madness. It was busy this year but it wasn't completely mobbed like last year. That's the economy, I guess. I hope it doesn't get much worse than it already is. So far it hasn't been effecting me... much.

That's all.

I wasn't sure what exactly I wanted to post about tonight. I have a couple things to say about Supernatural, not to mention DOCTOR WHO, but I haven't got it all quite organized. So... a meme, from [livejournal.com profile] haro: it's a little odd, but kind of interesting. If anyone answers, that is.

[livejournal.com profile] tenfeethigh did it and got the same result!

Your result for The Nerd? Geek? or Dork? Test...

Modern, Cool Nerd

65 % Nerd, 74% Geek, 43% Dork

For The Record:

A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.

A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!

Very flattering, these results. I'd love to be a modern, cool nerd. But I'm pretty sure I'm not. I'm not only a college drop out, but a high school drop out as well. I work an unskilled, low-paying job, and if I HAD nerdy friends to, oh, I dunno, maybe RP with or play D&D... but I don't, so, for fun, I GO TO BARS. Not very modern, cool, or nerdy, am I? Lol.

[livejournal.com profile] ithildyn took one of these, and so, being that it was about art, I had to take a bunch!

artsy quiz results under this cut! )

I love leaving. Leaving is my favorite thing to do. Whenever something knocks me down... I leave. I have a long standing history of doing this. It's such a rush. It started when I left my parents' house to go to college, and I never stopped. It doesn't matter how much I do or don't love somewhere - once I get the idea that it's time to leave, I LEAVE, and I LOVE it.

A therapist would call this "running away," and this is why I don't like therapy. They take what you say and find the closest categorical response available, and just use that. I'm not running away - what am I running away from? There's nothing here. I don't have a problem settling down - why would I settle down here, I don't like it here! I don't have a problem forming attachments - I form too many attachments! Erica, for one - yeah, I'm pretty attached to her, alright. Erica is like... my sanity, my sounding board, and my constant chatter - she's like my TELEVISION. Always got something on. And Bevan - I am very, very attached to him. If I left here and never saw him again, I would be sad. That would be a very sad thing.

And it's not just the two of them - my manager, Vicky, who calls us all her kids. All my coworkers who've helped me out in a pinch and always invite me out - John, Heather, Lindsay, etc, even Sima, my ex-tenant. I'm kinda attached to all these people.

But I just don't see that as a reason to stay here.

I saw my cousin Ryan yesterday, and I think that's what has really set me off. Ryan grew up here - Ryan never wanted anything more than to leave here, and he did, and he comes home now and then, but he always takes off again. He works at ski resorts and stuff - he was a surfer, but he switched from waves to mountains because he wanted change. Ryan does it all the time, leaves and goes somewhere else, because it's just time. No one says he's running away from anything, no one says he has attachment problems, issues, disorders - they say he's a "free spirit" or sometimes that he musta been a flower child or something.

He wasn't - but close to. My other two cousins, the ones who are older than me and Ryan, lived in a tent with my Aunt Jen and Uncle Ber until my oldest cousin was seven. Yes really.

Ryan and I look alike. A lot alike. It's almost eerie. I mean, the older we get and the more into our own lives we get, yeah, we do look a little different. But the basics stay the same. If I said I had a twin brother, and introduced him, no one would ever question it. So what's so different from him to me? Why am I always viewed as "running away" and he's "running free?"

I'd discuss this with Ryan himself, but, see, he's already off to find himself another mountain.

What type of person do you attract?
Your Result: You attract artsy people!

Those free spirited artists with great imaginations find you interesting. They are usually interesting themselves, so its not a bad thing, but they CAN be a bit wifty and choose odd goals. If you like life to always be a bit 'different' from the norm, but not too extreme in any one direction, these are the people for you. If you seek logical decision making skills and good money management, you may want to change something in the way you appear. Artsy people are fun for adventure and exploring, so, have fun! (smoking weed helps too)

You attract Yuppies!
You attract geeks!
You attract unstable people!

So me and Erica and Bevan and Hanna watched the baseball game at a bar last night, and are fully intending to watch the next one tomorrow.

Oh no wait actually, I am fully expecting Erica to be in Philly for the weekend even though she made plans with us to watch the game here. Cause she does stuff like that.

And, lol, I say "the baseball game" like it's the only one. The Phillies game, guys. That's what I watched. On TV, at a bar. Phillies won. I'll spare you all the details, cause I know if you care, you would have seen it too.

I never, ever gave a rat's ass about sports, but I am actually starting to get into baseball. I'd go to another game. I'd go to a game after dark, that is. Not in the middle of the day in the blazing hot sun, thanks.

So I'm kinda worried about my hair - this wedding is coming up, you know, mine and B's "date," and I have THE SHOES and I'm working on a nice dress outfit, and my hair is cupcake pink and I love it being cupcake pink but I don't think I want to be "that girl that B brought with the pink hair." It's just so... pink... I was thinking of re-dyeing it a darker, deeper pink, without bleaching my roots, so that'll make it darker towards the top... I don't know. I'm being a little obsessive about my hair and about getting dressed up, I think. But whatever, I do things like that.

Anyway. [livejournal.com profile] illiorsfool did this and I wanted to do it too!

This is eerily, eerily accurate... )

You give it a try, then, here, if you think this is a coincidence. Weird, eh?

But, because I'm stubborn like that (and the quiz did NOT peg that one!) I have to argue.

My life is not as bleak as this. Like I was telling [livejournal.com profile] ivy_poet, it IS better. There was a point where I just dared life to get any worse, because I didn't see how it could.

And it didn't. It got better. It's getting better. I'm not as unhappy as I sound. I promise.

So, lara-everlong, your LiveJournal reveals...

You are... 9% unique (blame, for example, your interest in victorian door knobs) and 11% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy weezer). When it comes to friends you are normal. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...

HFPS - The Humanitarian

Humanity, Foreground, Big Picture, and Shape

You perceive the world with particular attention to humanity. You focus on what's in front of you (the foreground) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the shapes around you. Because of the value you place on humanity, you tend to seek out other people and get energized by being around others. You like to deal directly with whatever comes your way without dealing with speculating possibilities or outcomes you can't control. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You prefer a structured environment within which to live and you like things to be predictable.
