Name: elizabeth, but i'm working on getting people to call me victoria. i'm going for a whole queens of england thing. that and there are about fifty other elizabeths in my school.
Birthdate: october 12
What would you/did you name your children?
Boy: jesus! i don't plan that far ahead. oh.. not that i'd name the kid jesus... poor little man. actually, it's not that bad of an idea.. except my mother would have a shit fit because we're jewish and she freaks out when i just put up christmas lights (which i did anyway, by the way. merry christmas!).
Girl: hmm. yeah. see above.
Top Five favourite bands and why you like them:
- okay. this may be a problem. i don't have a favourtie anything. i have decision making problems.
- dave matthews band -- i really cant help it. my best friend's mother is obsessed and i've just gotten used to it.
- me and my shadow -- okay, this is a cheap way out. it's one of my friend's band. they're good though, i swear. and jesse's really hot.
- the beatles -- classic. we can tell i'm having problems with the section, right? i love music, but i love every tipe. except for music from the romantic period! (that would be the really boring stuff that repeats. a lot.) oh my god, my father's obsessed and i want to throw myself out the window. anyway.
- talking heads -- okay, psycho killer was the last song i was listening to on my i-pod.
oh, look at that, no more space! too bad!
What movie would you never want to see again? What made this movie so horrible?
i'm thinking gigli must really suck, but i wasn't dumb enough to go see that one. even though i'm a sucker for anything with ben affleck (dogma.. oh, c'mon people..) and commercials. if i had a credit card i'd buy out the WHOLE fucking Igia enterprise. damn infomercials.
oh, right, so the worst movie I ever saw.. I saw it over Christmas so it's a fresh wound -> The List. Actually, I don't know if that's what it is called but let's just say it is. It was really poorly written, had no hot guys, and was just dreaaadful. trust me, and I'm a freak for romantic comedies. why am i switching from caps to no caps? i don't know. that's really annoying.
Favourite on or off Broadway play/musical:
Oh, I'm such a bad New Yorker, I haven't been to Broadway for the longest time. My mother and brother keep going without me. But, we're going on Tuesday so we'll see. So far, I love all musicals (it's a family gene) but I'm partial to the Mikado (Gilbert and Sullivan) because my brother was in it.
Favourite show when you were little: um, duh.. winnie the pooh. unless you mean broadway show, then i'd have to go with showboat.
Favourite books/authors: jd salinger, the brontes, phillipa gregory, tolkein and basically trashy 'romans de garre' (oh. shit. don't know how to say it in english. shoot me. it means.. uh.. trashy novels.)
If you found out you only had a week to live, list five things you would do in the time you had left: call eliot, go to australia, london, paris, tokyo... travel, eat a lot, kiss a whole lot of people, communicate better
If you could make one celebrity disappear, who would it be? Why? avril lavigne. she bothers me immensely. and i'm not easily bothered.
Would you be willing to give up ever having sex in exchange for an emotional commitment you knew would last? ah! but if i'm comitted.. i want my sex. okay. well. i guess i could do it for myself. yes. i would.
What is the most overrated thing in your opinion? um. okay, i'm not a freak but... democracy. i know i wrote a whole paper arguing against myself but.. just read some deTocqueville and maybe you'll get what i'm saying.
Do you believe in fate? Why or why not? okay, now i can phrase this right, thanks oedipus. i believe there are guidelines that are flexible and i believe there are things that will happen to me. but what's the point of living if you think there's nothing you can do? that you're just trapped in a predestined pathway? there are overarching broad and undefined laws of the gods (fate) but you get there, and you change those laws, with the more finite and stepping-stone-like laws of man (free will, etc.) yeah. :D
If you could change one thing you did in the last 24 hours, what would it be and why?
not going outside. at all. because now i feel nauseated. but i had to hang with my grandmom.
Describe your greatest fear: change. missing opportunities. compromising when i shouldn't. this would be better if this were something finite and cool like "cheese" or "snakes". my friend's deathly afraid of snakes. maybe i'll be her for a while -- "yeah, snakes scare the shit out of me man!" there you go.
What are your views on-
Same-sex Marriages: you know, when i was younger i thought it was bad. i thought it was fucking up the ratio for straight people like me. but that was just retarded. they should be able to get married. of course they should legally be married, if the people who protest do so on basis of religion then they have no grounds. so you can't be married in a church, while that may suck for some people that's just life. but church and state are two different things, and if two gay guys want the security that when the other dies, they wont be kicked out of the house then fucking give it to them. the state should be ready for this, even if it means your popularity rating may go down.
Legalization of Marijuana: oh, most definitely! but i'm wholly biased. ;)
hey, what are rich white kids to do in new york city?
(besides, it's good for medicinal use too)
This is your last chance to say something: oh my god. what a large chunk of my life wasted analyzing myself. next time i'm going to have somebody else fill this out for me.
