What the hell. I watch the damn thing every week, might as well answer them . . . the thefridayfive
:1. If you had to choose being blind or deaf, what would you choose and why?
This is tough, but I'd have to go with deaf. I really, truly don't think I could go without reading, watching movies, and using my computer. I would definitely miss music, as it's a close second to my absolute love for books. However, my love for books goes beyond simply reading the words on the pages. I love looking at them - the covers, the textures of the pages, the typefont. I adore wandering through used bookstores and seeing the various signs of age on the books. And few things, if any, can beat spending an afternoon getting lost in a good book. I love movies and TV too much as well. Plus, I still have days where I think the world is simply amazing - when I catch a sunrise or sunset, drive across 520 on a clear day and can see the mountains on either side, and so on. I really wouldn't want to miss that.2. What is the best smell?
Hm. When I'm feeling depressed or lonely - Hermione's head. Seriously. Tired or down, a fresh latte.3. Would you rather be hot or cold?
Hm, I really hate either extreme, but I'd probably have to choose hot (I mean, we're talking reasonable temperatures still, right?) I can always sit in front of a fan, find a place with air conditioning, and the like. I hate being cold. 4. What's the worst feeling in the world?
Hopelessness.5. Would you rather have something hurt or something be itchy?
I'd rather have something hurt. I can become tolerant of mild doses of pain (hell, I've been living with back pain for over a decade now). However, when something itches - it completely distracts me. I have the most difficult time focusing my attention away from an itch. Pain, I can swallow a bunch of Advil or even make use of the oxycodone I have left over from my wisdom teeth being removed. :)
And, sometimes all a girl needs is INXS to cheer her up. (Sure, laugh.)
