I was tagged by anthrocentric for this (but I’m not gonna tag anyone else because all of the anthro blogs have been doing this and tagging each other so people are gonna end up with like 5 to do, so I’m just gonna answer lol)
1. What was the last thing you toasted to?
I don’t really toast to things, but I say “Sláinte” every time I drink with people, so I guess I toast to people’s health a lot.
2. What was the best compliment you ever received?
My manager told me the other day at work that she was relieved I got there for my shift because she needed someone who was actually competent on register instead of the 3 brand new hires she was dealing with. It made me feel good about the fact that I’ve gone from being brand new myself in October to being the person who my manager relies on.
3. What was the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten? How was it?
Well, “strange” is really relative, because different things are “normal” for different people, but the most unique to ME thing that I ate recently was elk jerky. It was delicious and I want to by more.
4. What would be the background song of your life?
"Hot Mess" by Cobra Starship probably lol. Or "Problem" by Natalia Kills when I’m feeling particularly badass.
5. Someone is being unfair and an total ass to you. How do you respond?
Burn down their house. (No, of course not. If its in academia I just use sneaky academia politics and bullshit to get my way, and if its in ~real life~ I start a fight probably).
6. What’s the best present you’ve ever received?
A crock pot.
7. If you could have any pet (besides the whole ethical, safety, and practical aspect), what would it be?
An ocelot or a capybara. Better yet, an ocelot and a capybara who were best friends.
8. What time period aesthetic do you like most?
I really like the fashion of the 1890s for women.
9. If you can solve only one problem in the world, what would it be?
Finding out where the fuck socks go when you lose them. (I’m deliberately not choosing one of the many, MANY problems that are more serious than that, because they are all very interrelated and dependent on each other so you can’t just solve one of them. Like, you can’t get rid of “poverty” without addressing the myriad things like racism, ableism, classism, and capitalism that work to create it.)
10. How would you take down the world?
With an army of bonobos. Which, now that I think about it, wouldn’t be that effective as soldiers. They’d get bored with warfare and just start having sex.
11. Would you want to live on Mars?
If it was terraformed, maybe. But the implications of that scare me.
