Apparently I'm starting to get used to the idea that a fair number of the idle questions I've had rattling around in my head for years can be answered with LJ polls. (Well, answered to a first approximation anyway, which is more than enough given how much real effort I'm willing to put in.) Now I just have to try and remember all of them before my paid time runs out.

This one's anonymous (well, as anonymous as it gets) because it's slightly more personal than the last one--unlikely as it is that my usual audience would care about that. And I vigorously deny that all of my burning questions have a common theme. It's just that the more interesting ones do.

Art project and therapy in one. And there's a feed for it at [livejournal.com profile] post_secret.

"If Ki were human," said [livejournal.com profile] saizai just now, after yet another attempt to decipher what the hell his forlorn yowls are a request for, "he'd be writing bad goth poetry." Of course I just had to try and imagine this:

i am alone in the universe.
my cries of anguish go unheeded.
the blackness of my soul consumes me.

i strike out with teeth and claws
but cannot chew away
the melancholy in which i drown.

my path goes in endless circles
like a treadmill of futility.
clearly my life is devoid of meaning.

(Translation: My humans don't loooooooooooove me!)

A few years ago I tried to settle a word usage debate with a roommate by asking friends what they thought, but didn't have the occasion to ask that many friends and so never came to any definite conclusion. It's only just occurred to me that I now have available a much more efficient way of gathering opinions. Not that I'll ever be able to wave this in my ex-roommate's face as we don't seem to talk any more (this appears to have something to do with the fact that he owes me money, but we won't get into how I feel about that), but 'twill be useful for my own edification.

So, without further ado:

[Poll #442526]

Edit: Disregard the fact that it can also refer to a rooster or the angle of one's hat. Or a dildo. I'm just looking for penis-related applications here.

The flip side of the previous meme, by way of [livejournal.com profile] tsgeisel.

I've never:

1. Had an entire drink of something alcoholic. (Half a drink seems to be about my limit.)
2. Gotten my driver's license.
3. Had a cavity.
4. Had any acute illness worse than a really bad cold or stomach flu.
5. Had sex with someone I was in love with.
6. Made enough money in one year for the IRS to care about.
7. Eaten a peanut butter and jelly sandwich [edit: or a plain peanut butter sandwich, either] (at least not that I can recall, though I suppose I might have tried one once when I was little).
8. Worn eye makeup voluntarily. (Okay, so most a lot of the guys reading this probably haven't either. You don't count.)
9. Had my hair cut to less than shoulder length.
10. Lived in a dwelling whose inhabitants were all one gender.

This was tougher to come up with than the other list, probably because positives are so much easier to notice than negatives.

How necessary are expectorants when one has a chest cough? I mean, do you get better faster if you cough up all the crud faster, or will it go away on its own even if you don't hasten the up-coughing process?

Seen in several people's journals, but I like [livejournal.com profile] cyan_blue's title the best.

At various times in my life, I have:

1. Snitched an entire cream pie from a school dining hall
2. Attended the funeral of someone I'd never met
3. Gatecrashed a couple of complete strangers' wedding reception
4. Sung in an opera
5. Joined the drum circle in Sproul Plaza
6. Won a medal at a state archery tournament
7. Had Douglas Hofstadter sign my birth certificate
8. Recited "Jabberwocky" in full while simultaneously writing out something completely unrelated using a friend's back for a desk
9. Stayed in a dorm with Kelsey Grammer's daughter
10. Had to explain that goth != asexual

Details and elaborations, of course, available by request.

I feel I must set this down as evidence both of my vastly improved living situation (as compared to last year) and of my growing lack of shame:

This evening I rousted my roommate out of the bathroom with the words "Yo, [my date and I] need to pee so we can fuck!"

Yay, increased freedom of expression....

Once again, I've dropped a few journals from my friends list to make it a bit more manageable; once again, I'll add them back if their owners ask. And once again, although the correlation was unintentional, I've done this right after vacuuming the apartment.

I knew there was a reason I studied French in high school, but I wasn't sure I knew what it was any more. Now I do. It's so I can talk multilingual nonsense to the cat.

In other news, I've discovered taiko drumming is a lot like really prolonged foreplay. And I mean that both literally and metaphorically.
