    Hello friends (and foe, if you please)!

    I've been inspired and I want to share that with you.

    The game is simple: you answer all the questions above and leave one (just one at a time please) below. The idea is for the list of questions to grow and grow and grow and grow (and grow and grow...) for the sake of getting to know one another!

    Comply with site rules (like you need to be reminded) and you're more than welcome, encouraged even, to reply many times, but give people a chance to post before you blaze through a million questions in as many sequential thread posts.

    As this grows, I will keep an updated list of all the questions listed below so you don't have to go searching through everyone's dirty laundry. (If you're into that, you can still feel free to scroll through and locate all the questions, you have my support.)

    Little disclaimer on that above bit: you might still need to stare at the posts above yours, just in case I haven't been on the up and up.

    JUST ONE MORE QUESTION
    #1. If you were a tree, which tree would you be?
    #2. If you could eradicate one food from the planet. What would it be?
    #3. What is your favorite material for bed sheets and why?
    #4. If you were an animal, what would you be?
    #5. If you could hang out for one night with your favorite fictional character, who would it be and what would you do?
    #6. What's the first major purchase you'd make after winning the lottery?
    #7. What is your favorite temperature?
    #8. If you had to pick a single earworm to play in your head for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
    #9. If you were a color, what color would you be and why?
    #10. If your life was a storybook, what would it be called?
    #11. What is your favorite movie from childhood?
    #12. What is the best type and flavor of chip?
    #13. If you were a diety/god, what would be your preferred offering from your worshipers?

    You can pick up the list where you left off!
    No need to answer the same questions over again. ♡

    #1. If you were a tree, which tree would you be?
    I would be Sycamore because it's fun to say, an evergreen of any kind because I love to breathe in the deep, earthy smell, or a monkey tail tree (scientific name, I'm sure) because they're cool as feck, yo.

    #2. If you could eradicate one food from the planet. What would it be?
    @Nyctibius, you're not allowed to answer with "pineapple on pizza" just so we're on the same page.
    I would eradicate mushy oatmeal or mushy noodles. No one's oatmeal or noodles would ever be overcooked ever again.

    IMPORTANT QUESTION THAT WILL INFLUENCE MY LIFE DECISIONS:
    #3. What is your favorite material for bed sheets and why?

    #1. If you were a tree, which tree would you be?
    I'd definitely be a Cherry Blossom Tree.

    #2. If you could eradicate one food from the planet. What would it be?
    Mushrooms. Always Mushrooms.

    #3. What is your favorite material for bed sheets and why?
    Silk for sure. I don't have any right now, but I loved it when I did have some.


    #4. If you were an animal, what would you be?

    #1. If you were a tree, which tree would you be?
    A willow tree, because they're my absolute favorite. All droopy and beautiful. Like me.

    #2. If you could eradicate one food from the planet. What would it be?

    Mushrooms. They're weird and gross and creepy and I hate them.

    #3. What is your favorite material for bed sheets and why?

    Cotton. Although honestly, this question doesn't matter to me that much because I'm a weirdo who sleeps on top of the comforter on my bed (with a second comforter over me) because it makes it super quick to make my bed in the morning. So I don't actually sleep on the sheets. But if I were gonna... cotton because they're incredibly breathable and don't make my legs sweat at night.

    #4. If you were an animal, what would you be?

    Elephant. Because elephant.

    #5. If you could hang out for one night with your favorite fictional character, who would it be and what would you do?

    Excuse me? I answer how I like. My site, my rules, and I'm POWER-MAD BABEY

    #1. If you were a tree, which tree would you be?
    Something ancient, like an oak or a sequoia. I want to see what happens a century from now.

    #2. If you could eradicate one food from the planet. What would it be?
    Pineapple pizza, because it's objectively disgusting.

    No, actually, my real answer is going to piss way more of you off. It's steak. I'd wipe out steak. Steak is just... chewy and stringy and disgusting to palate. The taste isn't horrible but who wants to eat a chewy blood sponge?

    #3. What is your favorite material for bed sheets and why?
    God, I don't even know. I've only ever had blended I think. I need to educate myself on this one.

    #4. If you were an animal, what would you be?
    An owl, a potoo, an emu, or a wolf. Probably not an emu.

    #5. If you could hang out for one night with your favorite fictional character, who would it be and what would you do?
    This is a hard one. I have a lot of 'favorite' characters, but I guess it boils down to which one I find most interesting. I think I would probably like to spend time with someone like Thane Krios from Mass Effect. Calm, quiet, centered, with a rich life history and a lot of interesting stories to tell. Plus I get the sense he wouldn't want or need to drink to have a good time and considering how much I dislike alcohol, that's a plus...

    #6. What's the first major purchase you'd make after winning the lottery?

    ... Water Chestnuts. They're gross.
    #3. What is your favorite material for bed sheets and why?

    Trick question - I use a weighted blanket because I'm a needy bitch who dies without comfort.

    #4. If you were an animal, what would you be?
    Imma pretend no one asked this of me. (Frog. Duh.)

    #5. If you could hang out for one night with your favorite fictional character, who would it be and what would you do?
    UHHHHH THIS IS HARD. Tsuyu from My Hero Academia and we'd just chill in the rain because I love her.

    #6. What's the first major purchase you'd make after winning the lottery?
    Mortgage? Get Wrecked. I don't have time for you.

    Now... I've got a question for y'all..... just one more.

    #7. What is your favorite temperature?

    #1 If you were a tree, which tree would you be?
    I'm gonna echo Rei here and say birch. The way they turn green in the spring, first making those tiny baby leaves that are almost neon lime green? Love it! And the scent. There's also something nice and Finnish about birch, as it's a tradition to beat each other with birch in sauna to make the blood flow.

    #2 If you could eradicate one food from the planet, what would it be?
    Liver is not human food. I'm fine with it in paste form, but liver as in liver? The smell of it is enough to make me sick. And to think it was my fave when I was a toddler??

    #3 What is your favourite material for bed sheets and why?
    Just plain linen/cotton/whatever plasticy stuff they put in those IKEA sheets. Don't really care as long as it's not satin, I don't like slipping around in bed.

    #4 If you were an animal, what would you be?
    Bear, gotta love bears. ♥

    #5 If you could hang out for one night with your favourite fictional character, who would it be and what would you do?
    I thought about this way too long, and ended up with Alistair from Dragon Age: Origins. ♥ He's funny and nice, and I think we'd get along great! Both of us have amazingly bad sense of humour.

    #6 What's the first major purchase you'd make after winning the lottery?
    A house would be an obvious answer, but I'd also like to use some of it to simply travel. Not in fancy places or stay in fancy hotels, but the same kind of trips I'm making now, with the little money we have. Decent enough hotels, seeing places where people are actually living, meeting people around the world I wouldn't be able to meet now because I can't afford it.

    #7 What is your favourite temperature?
    I'm good for something around 20C (68F). Not too warm, not too cold, enough that I can still wear shorts but also long sleeves if I feel like it!

    #8 If you had to pick a single earworm to play in your head for the rest of your life, what would you pick?

    #3. What is your favorite material for bed sheets and why?
    I still can't heckin' decide what sheets I want for my bed, y'all. Looking at bamboo or Egyptian cotton because ya girl gonna be a sheet snob and buy something expensive.

    #4. If you were an animal, what would you be?
    Um. I don't actually know. Maybe a hippopotamus. Maybe a pterodactyl. Oh, you right. Definitely a pterodactyl.

    #5. If you could hang out for one night with your favorite fictional character, who would it be and what would you do?
    Okay, can I pick more than one? What kind of question? I need more time.
    *panic*
    • Detective Derek Morgan, Criminal Minds. You know what we be doin', fool.
    • Glaedr, the gold dragon from Eragon. We would be flying, enjoying life and I would be learning so many profound things, seeing the world through the eyes of a dragon.
    • Anyone who could take me into Narnia.

    #6. What's the first major purchase you'd make after winning the lottery?
    Heck. My logical, practical, Capricorn brain wants to make all the solid, logical and practical decisions, like pay off debts and loans and buy a house and get a fair some set aside for emergencies and blah, blah, blah... BUT A FUCKIN HELICOPTER, BRO.

    #7. What is your favorite temperature?
    Depends on where my moody bitch ass self is in that moment. I think the perfect place to be is 75 with a cool breeze.

    #8. If you had to pick a single earworm to play in your head for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
    Are. You. Ready. For. The. Best. Earwom. Ever. That. Isn't. I'VEHADTHETIMEOFMYLIFE?

    #4. If you were an animal, what would you be?
    Either a Dog or a Panda, obviously.

    #5. If you could hang out for one night with your favorite fictional character, who would it be and what would you do?
    Hermione Granger, obvs. Mostly just pick her brain, learn what I can. She's my idol.

    #6. What's the first major purchase you'd make after winning the lottery?
    A house. Probably on the beach in like Florida so cheaper, a bit. I hate being landlocked ya'll.

    #7. What is your favorite temperature?
    Uhhhh, 55F. I hate being too hot or too cold, and 60 is hot for me.

    #8 If you had to pick a single earworm to play in your head for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
    I'm going to have to go with the same one as Practi, the duck song. Because now it's the only thing I can think of now. It is forever stuck in my head again, thanks @Practical!

    #9. If you were a color, what color would you be and why?
    Purple. Just because it's my favorite color and I would love to live in purple.

    #10. If your life was a storybook, what would it be called?

    #5. If you could hang out for one night with your favorite fictional character, who would it be and what would you do? (I figure we're supposed to answer our own questions, right? Yes.)
    I don't know why I asked such a ridiculously difficult question because even I'm struggling to answer. I have a lot of favorite characters. But I'm going to go with Garrus Vakarian from Mass Effect. Do some good old target practice... or dancing. Or just stare at his weird alien face.

    #6. What's the first major purchase you'd make after winning the lottery?
    Less a purchase and more pay down all my debt. After that? A house in Washington or Oregon somewhere.

    #7. What is your favorite temperature?
    68F. I hate being hot, but anything lower than 65F makes my hands and feet hurt due to my anemia.

    #8. If you had to pick a single earworm to play in your head for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
    Well, "Take On Me" by A-Ha is like one of two songs that never ever ever makes me angry so, would that count?

    #9. If you were a color, what color would you be and why?
    Turquoise. Because turquoise.

    #10. If your life was a storybook, what would it be called?
    Lost Boi & the Nine Anxieties

    #11. What is your favorite movie from childhood?

    If you said "pay my debt" then that doesn't count! It's for fun! Buy something! I'd buy an owl. And then pay someone to take care of my owl, as I am not trained to take care of owls.

    #7. What is your favorite temperature?
    67, though I like it to be 65 and under. I run very hot. I do not enjoy it.

    #8. If you had to pick a single earworm to play in your head for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
    Sloppy Seconds by Watsky. Best song.

    #9. If you were a color, what color would you be and why?
    A nice mellow green or blue color. Not green-blue, one or the other.

    #10. If your life was a storybook, what would it be called?
    'Fuck, Again? Really?: Why I Hate My Father And Now You Can Too'

    #11. What is your favorite movie from childhood?
    I don't know, really. I put a lot of movies in the VHS player back in the day. I suppose probably Star Wars, one of those. Or Forrest Gump.

    #12. What is the best type and flavor of chip?

    ...oh man. The longer this goes on, the more daunting it looks. Cracks knuckles

    #1. If you were a tree, which tree would you be?

    Willow. At least, I want to be one. They just seem so chill and very pretty to look at. But I'm pretty sure right now I'm a batshit crazy shrubbery because I hate adulting and need someone to stop me from myself.

    #2. If you could eradicate one food from the planet. What would it be?

    Califlower. After trying to get my boyfriend to eat it, and myself, to change up our diet.. for the life of us we couldn't get it to taste good. Ever. Ugh.

    #3. What is your favorite material for bed sheets and why?

    Bedsheets don't matter if you don't sleep them. Lmfaooo I sleep on my comforter that covers the bed.
    ...and I have a second comforter that I actually sleep with. And I recently got a weighted blanket and it's the bomb. Love it.

    #4. If you were an animal, what would you be?

    Kookaburra. As much as I want to be something majestic or practical, nah. I'm too much of a damn goblin. At least I can fly.

    #5. If you could hang out for one night with your favorite fictional character, who would it be and what would you do?

    I have... Too many characters to list. But since I'm currently rewatching a thing, I'll pick from there.
    Ruth from The Ancient Magus Bride. He's just so chill and seems like the kind of person I can vibe with. I'd just take a nap with him.

    #6. What's the first major purchase you'd make after winning the lottery?

    Is getting me and my friends out of debt considered a purchase? If not, then my own vehicle. I miss my old one and saving for a new one is a pain.

    #7. What is your favorite temperature?

    68°F. Anything above that, I'll die. And I'll fist fight God or anyone that changes the thermostat.

    #8. If you had to pick a single earworm to play in your head for the rest of your life, what would you pick?

    Oh. Oh God. Uh. Hm.

    #9. If you were a color, what color would you be and why?

    Grey or periwinkle. I just really like them.

    #10. If your life was a storybook, what would it be called?

    How This Depressed Dumbass Survived This Long With A Huge Amount Of Anxiety; An Autobiography

    #11. What is your favorite movie from childhood?

    TREMORS.

    #12. What is the best type and flavor of chip?

    Dill Pickle potato chips. Lays specifically. Fight me.


    Here's another question...
    #13. If you were a diety/god, what would be your preferred offering from your worshipers?
