A) People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question that they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves.

B) Tag eight people to do this quiz and those who are tagged cannot refuse. These people must state who they were tagged by and cannot tag the person whom they were tagged by. Continue this game by sending it to other people.

1. What are your reasons for having a LJ?
Communication. By which I mean dialog. It's terribly unsatisfying for me to just push out information; I like to have a little back-and-forth in the Comments.

2. What do you do before bedtime?
Brush my teeth. Usually read.

3. What will your dream wedding be like?
I don't really dream about my wedding; it will be, and whatever it is will be great. I specifically don't want a 'perfect' wedding, where everything follows so great plan line by line -- not just because I know it'll never happen, but because life and everything in it is made more interested by the little imperfections. All THAT being said, I'd like a pretty traditional wedding, performed in a Catholic Church and probably as part of a mass.

4. What is the city of your dreams and why?
Nope, don't really have one. I was born and bred a suburbanite, and I'm rather fond of the environ. I don't really care about most cities one way or the other: if you've seen one, you've seen them all.

5. Are you an introvert or extrovert?
I imagine I'm an extrovert. I love people, and time without interpersonal action tends to drive me a little crazy. Being with and around people recharges my batteries.

6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?
Each, alone, is a curse.

7. Do you trust easily?
Yes. Trust is my default mode.

8. If you could buy yourself any ONE thing what would it be?
A single-family home; I love my townhouse, but I expect to buy-up some day, any ways.

9. Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days?
Yeah, something a few days ago get me feeling really dysphoric, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was. Such is my life: whatever my current state, I have always been and will always be in that state, and no other. At least, until the next state replaces it.

10. What is your best quality?
I want to say my dedication, but I'm not sure how to rope that off. When I make a commitment -- to my job, my friends, my ideals -- I stick to it.

11. Is being tagged fun?
Tagged as in memes? Yeah, sure; bonus points if you name me individually, because I like the ego boost.

12. How do you see yourself?
Intellectual, empathetic, affectionate, and laid-back.

13. Who are currently the most important people to you?
-laughs- Not sure how to answer that. I'm going to say my family: they've known me the longest and they've always been there for me. I adore my sisters and my brothers are my best of friends.

14. What kind of person do you think the person who tagged you is?
She's an amazing woman. Funny and smart and creative. I agree with Daisy: she's made of win.

15. Would you rather be single and rich or married but poor?
Married but poor. Things are things, and you can and will make do with whatever you have. But I can't stand to be lonely.

16. How many children do you want to have, if any?
As many as we're granted. I come from a noble history of large families, and the more children I have the happier I'll be.

17. What's better, to give or to receive?
Giving. Recieving, while nice, tends to embarrass me.

18. What is your dream career?
I don't know. Right now, I'm a consultant. A certain part of me wants to stay there, but another part of me really likes the idea of becoming a lawyer some day and wrestling with tech law (as it seems most lawyers, judges, and lawmakers don't understand technology). Another part of me thinks being a teach would be nice -- not teaching anything technical, rather I think I'd like to teach philosophy (but I think I'm hardly qualified for that). Finally, part of me wants to be a writer, but that part of me is content to wait until finances are no longer as-pressing of a need.

19. What would you do if you became pregnant unexpectedly?
By definition, if I became pregnant it would be unexpected. I'd probably be subjected to a lot of tests, end up with a C-section, and sell the movie rights. (Damn it, someone beat me to it!)

20. What were your parents going to name you if you'd been born the opposite sex?
I'm pretty sure I would have been an Elizabeth. My older sister Jenny got her name mostly because my dad was really fond of it. Elizabeth is my mom's mom's name, and it's what my little sister ended up with, so I imagine that if I'd been a girl first that's what I would have gotten.

Now, I tag:
Anybody who wants to do this. (Cop-out, I know, but you'll learn to love me again.)
