1. I've seen the twirling photo, so I can picture you then, but what was the child version of Beth like?
i swear i've answered this for someone before and i can't find it despite googling for "ms_pooka temper tantrums" and "ms_pooka strong-headed" and "ms_pooka painfully shy". where is it?!?
2. I'm deathly afraid of needles. Do you have an irrational phobias?
and snakes. maybe tornadoes.
i spent many years during my childhood terrified of dying or of my parents dying or of my parents gettin' down (i somehow managed to be born a puritan), zombies behind doors, ghosts in the dark, bloody mary in the mirror, a lack of straight A's... wait. you said phobias, not fears. needles. and snakes. maybe tornadoes, but then that's hardly irrational, now is it.
3. Do you want to have kids?
i think so. at the moment, it scares me shitacularly. but my thought is that once i meet the right guy (which i'm oh-so-certain will happen any time now), i won't be nervous about it. well, except for the part where i take a miniature human being and wrench it through my much-smaller vagina. i'll never look forward to that part no matter how many mother-mary-sunshines you throw at me about the beauty of childbirth. it's just not natural.
ps: since the clock is audibly ticking these days, i'm considering the possibility of being okay without having kids. jesus. never thought i'd have to worry about a ticking clock for crissakes.
4. What really happened that time you passed out in the shower? If classified, please indicate so.
classified. use your imagination and see where it takes you. i still stand solidly that diet didn't have a damn thing to do with it and blame where blame is due. mmhmm.
5. What was Germany like? Would you go back?
germany was lovely and of fickle weather. i did go back.
