Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
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.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
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.

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
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.   :wink:

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
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

Quote from: The Gold Trumpet
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  :wink: )  

Quote from: kotte
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.

Quote from: Cinephile
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.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookooajoob
What does the word 'Thrindle' mean to you?

I have a 3 year-old neice named Cathrine.  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.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookooajoob
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.  

Quote from: Walrus, Kookooajoob
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.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookooajoob
Favorite color?

RED when Happy, BLUE when Depressed.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookooajoob
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)

Quote from: Walrus, Kookooajoob
Favorite stand-up comedian(s)?

Honestly, I really don't have one.   :oops:
Classic.

Confidence is important, not just in relationships, in life.

How do you get it?

Um, well... to be honest,  it's because I've made so many "mistakes" in my life, tons, in fact, and I've taken what I could from each one.  I've got a li'l life experience under my belt and I think that it's made me a richer person.  

I get confidence from the fact that I've lived through some shit and come out on top.  I'm proud of who I am.  I know that I'm loving and caring and honest and genuine.  I also know my flaws (bit of a gossip, self-centered, self-indulgent {especially when it comes to depression}] which keeps me humble.

And here's the kicker: I've actually done the whole therapy thing.  I'm all about couselling and living a conscious lifestyle.  By the way, "conscious" means being introspective, understanding why you do the things you do, understanding where people are coming from, but also knowing not to take life too personally.

Basically, I got tired of fitting the mold, and have started to embrace who I really am.
Classic.

Actually, yes.  I tweaked out a little bit.   Apparently it just makes me curvier which is a good thing....  right  :roll: ....

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob

You didn't specify which music, so I'll tell you literally.  My mom has a hair salon in our basement, I'm listening to one of the customers kill herself laughing at a story that isn't actually funny.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
What was the last good movie you saw?  (Most recently)

While GT was here I saw a shitload of movies... but I think my favorite was Princess Mononoke (but don't tell him that cuz he'll pull a big "I told you so")

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Favorite relative (and why)?

I'm the black sheep of the family.  I've grown up in a family where my uncles are the big shots, their wives do what they're told, and females in general aren't supposed to be opinionated.  I'm opinionated AND loud.  I've never really had allies in my family.  So I guess I'd have to say that a couple of my female cousins are really cool... when they drop their "I'm so perfect" facades.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
If you were the president, what would you do first?

Kill myself.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Is there any fad that you still hold onto?

Hmm, cool question.  I can't really think of any that I still hold onto.  Probably because my sense of fashion is my own.  When everyone is trying to look pseudo-punk around here (all these girls trying to look punky but have bought there style brand new from Off the Wall), I'm the one who is always classic.  I'm a classy broad who doesn't buy into the fashion of the moment.  

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Any fad that you wish would come back?

If I could bring back one fad, it would have to be baby backpacks.  I never threw mine out from grade 6.  It was just so cute.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Favorite card game?

Crib

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Favorite sport to play?

I've never been a sports girl, but I FUCKING LOVED RUGBY in high school.  God that was fun.  I think contact sports are more fun than non-contact.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Favorite section of the newspaper?

Hehe... horoscopes.


Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Do you like spaghetti or spaghetti O's better?

Spaghetti!  I make an awesome spaghetti... best spaghetti in the world.  (the trick is to slow cook it all day)

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
What brought you to Xixax?

I watched Magnolia and was completely moved.  I had always avoided that movie (don't really know why)  I'm not really a Tom Cruise fan and that was part of it I think.  So my perverted mind took me to seduceanddestroy.com
Changed my life.  :P

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Am I asking too many questions?

Not today... I'm enjoying being wasteful with my time.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
How do YOU pronounce Xixax?  (That is, if you ever talk about us outside of real life...I mean the internet)

I do talk about xixax.  I have to explain how I met that guy who was just staying with me for two weeks.  (everyone thinks I'm nuts.  But I'm also charming so it evens out).  Anyways, I pronounce it with the x's intact.
XiXaX.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Do you ever find yourself saying out loud what you type?

More when I'm typing on MSN.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Favorite author?

Margaret Lawrence.  She's a Canadian author.  Subtlety is her skill.  Amazing author, absolutley brilliant.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Favorite Criterion?

Let me make this clear, I LOVE movies, but I am NOT a cinephile.  So I'd probably just have to say that I liked George Washington.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
What are your opinions on the Xixax poster Walrus, Kookookajoob?

I'm pretty sure he's a homosexual.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
No, honestly, what are you opinions on him?

No, really.  I'm fairly sure he's a homosexual.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
Really?

Yeah, I think he puts from the rough.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
You know that's me, right?

Yeah I know, but hey dude, you asked.

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob
You really think I'm THAT sexy?

Well yeah, I think gay men  are EXTREMELY appealing.  

Quote from: Walrus, Kookookajoob

Sure, in the sense that self-centered me gets to write about myself.

Psst, no disrespect to gay people.  Love 'em I do!

Quote from: ...& I
Which forum of Xixax's General Discussion do you enjoy reading the most, and why?

You know, when I first came here, I remember really liking this one thread about depression and the blues.  It was nice to know that I wasn't alone.  That might be my favorite thread because it's always good to meet like-minded people.  Oh, and I love that thread with Fluffy the Dog.  So fucking cute.
Classic.

1.) Do blondes really have more fun?

Yeah, in that "I get to screw losers" sort of way.  I've had my hair all different colours (mom is a hairdresser), and I've found that different hair colours attract different guys.  Blonde always attracts the generic brand of local male.  Red attracts less guys, but the ones who like a little fire (bad pun).  And I find that brunette attracts a more confident 'out of the box' sort of guy.  I know that this all sounds ridiculous, but in my world it is true.

Quote from: MacGuffin
2.) What's your biggest crime (crime defined by law terms)?

I had to really think about this one... all I could come up with is the few times I stole lipstick in grade 8.  I think I'm a goody goody.  I guess underage drinking could fit in, but hey, is that really a crime?

Quote from: MacGuffin
3.) What attracts you to man first?

I was going to use the whole "I love eyes" bit... but the truth is, I really am attracted to confidence and intelligence.  I could be in a room full of guys and the one who has a loud mouth,  and brilliant mind will win me over every time.  I'm all about the brain.

Quote from: MacGuffin
4.) If you had a choice where you had to either stay with something secure or risk it all for following what your heart really desires even though it's not definite, which would you choose?

I'd definately take the risk.  I was in this "comfortable" two year relationship all because I was too insecure to leave.  Sure it was safe... but also destructive, and awful for my self esteem.  I would rather take the risk, because I know that you can't put your stock in life anyways.  When you think you've got it all figured out, it will fuck you.  

Having said this, with relationships put aside... I have found that I tend to stick to comfort out of fear.  It's only now that I'm trying to do things that scare me... but I find that I'm much happier living life this way.

Quote from: MacGuffin
5.) What could be done to improve xixax?

I've got a question myself: Is xixax going to die?  :cry:
I don't know what needs to be done to xixax, it's such a great place to be.  I actually enjoy talking to people on here... sometimes more than "real" life.  I think the cool part about this site is that everyone gets a voice, and they get to speak in a way that they may not be used to, outside of the computer.  I love it when there's a philisophical debate happening, or when someone is sharing something from school... I think xixax will improve itself come September (if it's funded...  :cry:  :cry:  :cry: )
Classic.

What was your best birthday present ever? How nostalgic are you for your childhood? If your life was a novel and you had to give it a title, what would it be? You recently told me that a quote from Will Smith in which he said something along the lines of 'you judge your life by the friends you have'. If thats true, how do you see your life? Have you ever had any interest to be an actress? What song - album - piece of music have you been listening to the most lately and why? Do you have any heros and if so, who? Finally, of these 4 Criterion DVDs, which one interests you most: http://www.criterionco.com/asp/release.asp?id=149 ,  http://www.criterionco.com/asp/release.asp?id=98 , http://www.criterionco.com/asp/release.asp?id=101 , http://www.criterionco.com/asp/release.asp?id=253
