Do you like cats?
I have always been afraid of cats. They are fickle and scratchy. Having said that, I've largely outgrown my dogs (best word to describe Hank the eldest dog is... well... gooey), but I love them. If I were to do the pet thing all over again, I'd want a cat. They are much more independent.
In the DVD Talk thread, I've posted specs for each of the 4 films being released by Criterion in October in the Criterion News thread (look at last page) and so my question is, of the 4 new films being released, which one interests you most and why?
At first I would have said Fat Girl
... but I found the premise alone rather depressing. Really depressing actually. I'd have to watch that when I'm low. So the one I'd really want to see is (like you) Eyes Without a Face
. It sounds a little twisted, which always interests me.
What's worst: guys trying to get girls naked at a party or guys trying to get girls to do beer bongs?
It's always annoyed me when girls have gotten naked at parties. I'd always think to myself, "get some self esteem". As for beer bongs... I think I'm still a little proud at how well I used to do them.
Does life feel suffocating at all and if so, why?
I think that I find the pattern of life to be a little suffocating. Because I truly believe that we are here to learn
, I'm always aware of problems that are looming in the distance that I must "learn" from. That gets tiresome. So I've decided to enjoy the peaceful times in my life and not dread the future so much... and we do have quite the looming future now don't we
Considering our society is inflitrated by a dominance of judeo-christian ethics, illustrate how your own beliefs on ethics and morals collide or coinside with the those beliefs most people believe in.
GT! What kind of question is this? Ok, I'll answer it a little, but only because I'm NOT being stubborn cuz I don't want to answer it at all.
Unlike strict religion that sees problems (and their answers) in a black and white form, I don't believe in that. It is
easier to look at the world and believe that you have all the answers, that comforts some people, but it doesn't comfort me. Black and white thinking usually means that some party is suffering from the ignorance as to their situation. SOOOO... I don't follow any rules. I'm looking for the answers that create the most peace, love and joy (no I'm not a hippie). Seriously, if you have someone who's a pedophile, I don't necessarily believe that prison and castration (extreme) would be the answer. I think this because many people who are pedophiles know that they are sick. They realise that there is something wrong, but our society does not let them ask for help. Therefore, I think that in many cases pedophiles need intense psychiatric therapy, (as well as never being allowed to live near children again
When does the boy become a man and the girl a woman?
I've asked this question myself before. I asked some random dude at some random summer job and he gave me a great answer:
When one feels as though they are.
I believe that fully. When you feel that you can accept your status as a woman or a man, with all of it's responsibilities, that is when you recieve the title.
Why does GT ask you questions in this thread when he can ask you off Xixax anytime?
Good question. Unlike real
couples (I use real very loosely), GT and I don't have the opportunity to discuss and meet each other at many different venues. It's phone or email. That's virtually it. There are no after work meetings, or Friday night movies... and that is rather torturous. So, to have yet one other venue... he includes Xixax. My heart leaps up a little when I see he's posted to me... so really... it's just a sweet gesture.
What does the word 'Thrindle' mean to you?
I have a 3 year-old neice named Cathrin
e. She is this perfect (I suppose even when she's tweaking out and throwing tantrums) little being with a halo of curly blonde hair and blue eyes. I love her to bits. Because I am a dork who nicknames everyone (believe me this is true), Cathrine was given the name Thrindle. It's endearing. I've kept it for myself.
Are you a Beatles or Elvis woman?
Oooooh, oh how I like this one. Elvis woman. Hands down. He was the first quintessential rock star.
When you put butter on your toast, are they upward motions, or downward motions?
Downwards motion. But I'm trying to avoid butter on toast (gained a few pounds while GT was visiting). I'm all about the light cream cheese.

What's your full name?
Nikki Rae Louise Wood .... Ooh, now any stalkers can find me and kill me.
I have a name that cannot be taken seriously. When I realised that, I decided not to pursue politics. If I google it, I get porn stars... Nikki and Wood... what was my mom thinking? (oh, and Nikki isn't short either. That's all I get. No Nicole or Nicola or Nicolinus... NOTHING)
Favorite stand-up comedian(s)?
Honestly, I really don't have one.
