I've been tagged!

Diane over at Good Mourning, Glory! tagged me for a meme. Thanks, Diane! I'm starting to get hooked on these meme things. : )

What is your current obsession?

I had this same question on my Stealing Sunday meme so I'd say the same thing...reading, tea, and the occult. But I'm going to add crafting and Diablo to that.

I went to three different craft stores today looking for my Mother's Day project and settled on a cross-stitch pattern. I always make my mom something for Mother's Day. I better get started on it tomorrow if I want it done by then! I might even post a pic of the finished product. Mind you, it won't be gothy or anything cuz' it's for my mom. We are complete opposites!

I'm sure you've heard of Diablo before but I'm referring to the game. It's the best game EVER. They're going to come out with Diablo 3 and I cannot wait. Yes, I'm a gamer nerd. This is the version I've been playing a lot of since I no longer have the 9-5. : )

I guess the question was "obsession" singular but I just can't limit that to one thing!

What is your weirdest obsession?

Gosh I have a lot that could be considered weird. I guess all the occult/paranormal stuff that I'm interested in would be "weirdest", although it's not to me, obviously.

What are you wearing today?

Well now that it's almost midnight, I'm in my jammies, which consist of purple pj bottoms with stars on them and a blue t-shirt. Doesn't exactly match. : )

When I was out and about today, I wore a black sweatshirt hoodie and dark blue jeans with black shoes. It was a bit chilly around here.

Why is today special?

Thinking of things that happened today that don't normally happen, I would say that today was special because my brother and his girlfriend had their first ultrasound of their first kid together. OMG I'm going to be an aunt. I'm really not a fan of children but I'm happy for them. : ) I was told that if it's a girl, they're naming it after me. What can I say? I took care of my brother A LOT when we were growing up.

What would you like to learn to do?

I would love to learn how to play the piano and how to sew. I can cross-stitch and do embroidery like a mother f***er (AKA I'm really good) but I've never "sewn".

What is the last thing you bought?

I had a craving for nachos so I bought sour cream, shredded cheese, an avocado, and organic chips. I already had the salsa so when I got home, I just had to whip up the homemade guac and lunch was served. Delish!

What are you listening to right now?

What's your favorite weather?

I'd have to go with a storm on a day/night when the weather is in the 70's.

What's your most challenging goal right now?

It's the goal I always have...to constantly better myself.

What do you think about the person who tagged you?

I think she's awesome! I sense that she has a beautiful soul and that's hard to come by.

What's your favorite guilty pleasure?

Again I'm going to have to go with my Sunday Stealing answer. Naughty food...which basically means anything creamy, cheesy or buttery.

Favorite vacation spot?

I don't have a favorite go-to spot but if there is a body of water, I'm so there.

What would you like to have in your hands right now?

A buyer's agreement saying that they want to buy my condo!

What would you like to get rid of?

Family issues! Some days I just want to get in the witness protection program and run away.

If you could go anywhere in the in the world for the next hour, where would you go?

This one was tough cuz' it's only an hour. I'd have to say Dracula's castle.

Which language would you like to learn?


What super power would you like to possess?

I would choose immortality because I think it would be so neat to see how the world changes over time, to see what we create.

What's your favorite thing about the city you live in?

My favorite thing is being so close to Lake Michigan. Tulip Time starts this weekend and it's going to be a mad house! People come from all over. People that don't know how to drive on our Michigan turn arounds. That part I'm not such a fan of. If you're going to be in town, let me know...I'll show ya' around!

What's your favorite piece of clothing in your own closet?

My soft fuzzy black zip-up sweater.

What's your dream job?

To work on a police force.

If you had $150 now what would you do with it?

Probably nothing because I have to watch my pennies due to the "no job" situation. If I was working, then I'd use the money to buy things off of my wish list.

Do you admire anyone's style?

No one in particular but I admire goth/industrial fashions.

Describe your personal style?

Basically anything black or blue. I'm one giant bruise. I wear a lot of comfy slip-on shirts. Not really a fan of buttons.

Who's fashion show would you want tickets to?

I can't think of anyone in particular. If Gothic Beauty magazine put on a fashion show, I'd be interested in seeing that.

Who's closet would you want to raid?

Geesh there are a lot of clothing questions. I'd raid anyone's closet that had goth/rivethead clothes.

What are you most proud of?

My ability to overcome emotional pain.

If you could choose one person who has passed to have lunch with, who would it be and why?

My great-grandpa because I think he had a secret life.

Diane said...

i'm glad you did this! of course i should get to know better my "roommate if we'd had met in another time and place"! :)

Dreamwriter said...

Love your answers! I think we all have family issues..It keeps us on our toes...LOL!!! Police force? That is so cool!

Dracenea said...

Eve - Honestly, I didn't tag anyone because it said I had to tag 7 people. I don't think 7 people would have done it. I could be wrong. Next time I'll tag people and see what happens.

Diane - I can't believe you shot your mom! That's awesome that the two of you were playing! It's the best game ever. If we were roommates, I'd make you play!

Dreamwriter - My toes are tired. ha ha

It happens that my wife and I are big fan of Diablo too. We played a lot together when we used to live in our parents house. We also are waiting impatiently the release of Diablo III. At the moment, we are playing to "Sacred 2 Fallen Angel" which is similar to Diablo. The world is very large and there is a lot, and I really mean a lot of quests. But I still like Diablo better, the storyline is much better.

Dracenea said...

PumpkinBrain - Always nice to meet a Diablo fan! I'm on a Mac so no Sacred 2 for me. I really should go digging and see if there is another similar game for the Mac.

halloween spirit said...

Interesting answers. Congratulations on your potential namesake!

Dracenea said...

Halloween - Thanks. My brother came by last night and gave me a DVD of the ultrasound. I'll have to watch it one of these days. It's so crazy to think of my little brother having a kid! He's 21. Yipes!
