Stole this from rosa_mundi  
01. Do you have on a lot of make-up?
No - because "none" isn't a lot.

02. How much do you put on?
None, and I prefer others to do the same. If I can tell they're wearing makeup (and I shouldn't be able to tell, because it is not tiger-stripes or big black shapes), it makes me feel weird.

03. How long does it take you to get ready?
It takes me about ten minutes to shower if I'm tired (five if I'm awake), five minutes to shave (in the shower - I need the steam to soften my beard).

04. Do you put on a lot of lip gloss?
No. I'm still fairly confident that "none" is not a lot.

05. Does your lip gloss smell good?
Your cultural assumptions bother me!

06. Do you carry a purse?
Everybody else calls it that, but I prefer to call it a messenger bag.

07. What color is it?
It's black - like my soul.

09. Do you have a Coach bag?
Is that where Wells Fargo keeps the gold?

10. Do you have a Louis Vuitton?
Is that some kind of greatsword?

11. How many purses do you have?
If you insist on calling them that, I have three.

12. Do you like to wear nailpolish?
Not unless somebody else puts it on.

13. How often do you get your nails done?
I trim my nails about every two weeks. Are you one of those people who complains about "the help"?

14. Do you like manicures?
I don't know - I'd probably like them well enough.

15. What about pedicures?
See 14.

16. Do you have a usual nail salon you go to?
My couch is not a nail salon.

17. Where do you get your hair cut?
In my bathroom, where I shave it off.

18. Do you dye your hair?
HAHAHAHA!

19. Do you straighten your hair?
HAHAHAHA!

20. Do you have lots of pairs of shoes?
I have a pair of slippers, a pair of basketball shoes I wear to work, abd two sets of well-scuffed black dress shoes. Is that a lot?

21. What are your favorite shoes?
My work shoes. Those are the ones I'm wearing to work.

23. Do you wear heels everywhere?
I haven't worn heels since I was three.

24. Can you walk in heels and not fall over?
When I was three, I fell over because it was fun.

25. Where do you buy your clothes?
Target, usually. For jeans I go to Sears or JC Penney's.

26. Do you go shopping every week?
For food, sure.

27. What's your favorite store?
I'm a big fan of the Whole Foods on Fairview and Grand.

28. How much do you usually spend?
About $60, which is pretty reasonable for that store.

29. Have you ever been in Dior?
Is that a new WoW server or something? Because I don't play MMORPG's anymore - I have a problem.

30. Do you follow fashion trends?
Only very old ones.

31. Do you have a pair of huge sunglasses?
No. Actually, I don't own any sunglasses.

35. How many pairs of earrings do you have?
Your cultural assumptions bother me!

36. Do you wear hoop earrings?
Are you even listening to me?

37. Do you have a lot of skirts?
Um, no. I think none is still not a lot.

39. Do you get your eyebrows done?
I pluck out the outliers when they start looking really weird.

40. Can you apply mascara without opening your mouth?
I don't need to wear mascara. My eyelashes are huge.

41. Do you wear a lot of eyeliner?
Not unless I'm in a play.

42. Do you do pilates or yoga?
Not yet - I will be starting a program with my coworkers next month at the YMCA across the street.

43. Do you have a lot of magazines?
Communications of the ACM and Newsweek, and hopefully the latter will get cancelled soon (I didn't want it, and they keep sending it)

Re: See icon.
It was exactly what I was thinking of.

Damn you.
I just fell off my chair.

I think I lost it completely somewhere around #16.

Hahhahahaaa... that was *awesome*.
Epic Dudemorecake on January 11th, 2006 07:42 pm (UTC)
In the interests of....something or other. Mostly not hassling my f/list :-)

01. Do you have on a lot of make-up?
Firstly, that's a *horrible* sentence. Something like 'Are you wearing a lot of makeup?' or even 'Do you have much makeup on right now?' would be less hideous.
Anyway, no.

02. How much do you put on?
It depends where I'm going and what I'm doing. Normally, none.

03. How long does it take you to get ready?
[for sensible things]
Theoretically, half an hour. This doesn't take into account staring vaguely at the wall wondering where my socks are, attempting to find some clean clothes, stopping to listen to a new album, or making my packed lunch which always seems to take unaccountably forever.

[to go out]
Anything between 4 hours and ten minutes, in direct proportion to how much time is available.

04. Do you put on a lot of lip gloss?
The chill January winds compel me to apply a smudge of Vaseline, but I don't think I use a lot.

05. Does your lip gloss smell good?
It doesn't really smell of anything.

06. Do you carry a purse?
International language confusion alert. I'm guessing you mean some sort of handbag type thing. No, I wear combats with large, overstuffed pockets.

07. What color is it?
Whatever colour my trousers are. So, generally black, then.

09. Do you have a Coach bag?
???

10. Do you have a Louis Vuitton?
Is that some kind of greatsword? I like this answer so much I shall leave it here in perpetuity.

11. How many purses do you have?
About twenty, working on the pocket ratio.

12. Do you like to wear nailpolish?
Sometimes.

13. How often do you get your nails done?
Hmmm. I chew them almost constantly, and apply polish on a strict 'every now and then' basis, taking care to leave it on until it has all flaked off.

14. Do you like manicures?
I have utterly no idea, but almost certainly not.

15. What about pedicures?
See 14.

16. Do you have a usual nail salon you go to?
This is just begging for 'No, I have an unusual salon!'

17. Where do you get your hair cut?
I don't.

18. Do you dye your hair?
Yep.

19. Do you straighten your hair?
Nope.

20. Do you have lots of pairs of shoes?
Not as many as t'other half, that's all I'm saying.

21. What are your favorite shoes?
'Oh you shoes! I love you all, but there are so many of you!'
(and if you can name that quote without searching, i shall be very impressed.)
Not the Stupid Office Shoes.

23. Do you wear heels everywhere?
No. You?

24. Can you walk in heels and not fall over?
Yes. You?

25. Where do you buy your clothes?
Charity shops. They are the natural home of the Glammie.

26. Do you go shopping every week?
For food, sure.

27. What's your favorite store?
It's tempting to put 'Pickles meat and cheese stall in the market.' Failing that, bookshops.

28. How much do you usually spend?
On what?

29. Have you ever been in Dior?
Isn't it more of a concept than a concrete 'thing'?

30. Do you follow fashion trends?
Only very old ones.

31. Do you have a pair of huge sunglasses?
No.

35. How many pairs of earrings do you have?
Several.

36. Do you wear hoop earrings?
HAHAHAHAHA!

37. Do you have a lot of skirts?
One or two. It always amuses me, btw, how the geekily inclined have such difficulty telling the difference between skirts and dresses.

39. Do you get your eyebrows done?
No.

40. Can you apply mascara without opening your mouth?
WTF?

41. Do you wear a lot of eyeliner?
Sometimes.

42. Do you do pilates or yoga?
Every time, I read that as 'pirates'. Puts a whole new slant on the question :-)

43. Do you have a lot of magazines?
Random geek, music and politics mags abound.

I post my answers here because I don't want to waste my own journal space
01. Do you have on a lot of make-up?
Ever since the fire, my entire face is make-up.

02. How much do you put on?
About 64 metric tons.

03. How long does it take you to get ready?
It depends - if I'm in the right mood, I can be slick and ready to go in a minute or two, but more often you have to work me up to it over 20-30 minutes.

04. Do you put on a lot of lip gloss?
It's called 'spit', thank you.

05. Does your lip gloss smell good?
Who gives a shit? What is this fucking meme anyway? It's the shittiest one I've ever seen, even if I were a girly girl!

06. Do you carry a purse?
When I need to carry my camera.

07. What color is it?
The rug matches the drapes.

09. Do you have a Coach bag?
No, that show was before my time.

10. Do you have a Louis Vuitton?
I had one in my closet, but I forgot to feed him for a couple weeks.

11. How many purses do you have?
One for each testicle. Oh, you said purse.

12. Do you like to wear nailpolish?
What can I say, sometimes I just like to get a little crazy!

13. How often do you get your nails done?
'Done'?

Q. 14-16 have been deleted because they're too boring to even fake an answer for, and 17 is deleted because we all have the same answer.

18. Do you dye your hair?
When I was young and beautiful.

19. Do you straighten your hair?
Yes - can you tell?

20. Do you have lots of pairs of shoes?
No, but I have dozens of singles.

21. What are your favorite shoes?
Whichever ones are closest to me when I am on my way out the door.

23. Do you wear heels everywhere?
Actually, my feet were bound from ages 2-20, so technically I don't even have any heels; my ankles go straight into my toes. The pain was sometimes unendurable and to this day I can barely manage more than a shuffle, but I consider the cost worth it when I gaze down upon my feet and realize how lovely and desirable I am.

25. Where do you buy your clothes?
My grandmother's 'to goodwill' bag.

Q. 26.-29 got really boring.

30. Do you follow fashion trends?
If you mean, do my eyes follow the breasts and buttocks of women who are probably dressed in said trends, then yes.

Q. 31-42 deleted because this whole meme is retarded.

42a. So why are you doing the meme?
Fuck you.

43. Do you have a lot of magazines?
The sweethearts at National Geographic haven't required me to pay for something like two years now!

I keep having to unpack boxes of stuff like this at work. Can't speak to the quality but it sure looks interesting.
