The one thing that drives me crazy about MySpace is the dozens of surveys that are posted on my bulletins page at any given moment. It seems people just can't give out enough information about themselves. If the government wants to find out the dirt on someone today, they don't need satellite imagery or sophisticated recording devices, they just need to be on that person's MySpace friend's list.
Some of the surveys are way too intrusive to answer. Like I'm going to actually tell someone how many sexual positions I've tried. Those are usually the surveys that carry a chain-letter type threat at the end, something along the lines of: "If you don't answer this honestly and repost, you will die." People who fill those out because they are scared are just stupid.
Most people fill surveys out because they are bored. I'm rarely, if every bored, so I never filled one out. But this morning, finding myself finished two days early with what I figured was a weeks-long writing project, I faced a choice. Either fill out a survey or clean the house. Guess which I chose?
3 names you go by?
3. Vic (but only to Jamie and Howard, who are too lazy to say Victoria)
3 things you are wearing right now :
1. Big Harry Potter towel wrapped around my body. Twice
2. Smaller towel wrapping up my wet hair
3. Nothing else
*You must answer every question TRUTHFULLY
 Are you in a relationship of any type?
 Have you ever been given roses?
 What is your all-time favorite romance movie?
 How many times have you honestly been in love?
 Do you believe that everyone has a soul-mate?
I'd like to think that.
 What's your current problem?
The toy explosion covering the playroom floor and the five-year-old who thinks he's above cleaning up his own mess.
 Have you ever Had a Long Distance Relationship?
No...no, wait. I'm sort of having one now. I'm having an imaginary affair with Severus Snape. I guess that counts as long distance since Hogwarts is in Europe. But then again, the affair is in my head, which is attached to my body so maybe it's not long distance. What's up with the trick questions, anyway??
 Have you ever seen a friend as more than a friend?
 Do you believe the statement, "Once a cheater always a cheater"
I'd need a better definition of cheater. Some people cheat with good reason and I believe they can change. But some cheat recreationaly, because they're arrogant players or because they think they're entitled to have their cake and eat it, too. I don't think the second type can every change and why I might be casual friends with such a person I'd never have a relationship with one.
 How many kids do you want to have?
No thanks. Already had them.
 What are your favorite colors?
Green. And more green.
 Do you believe you can only have 1 true love?
I used to believe that.
 Imagine you're 79 and your spouse just died, would you get re-married?
No. I'd have a string of meaningless affairs. With younger men.
 At what age did you start noticing the opposite sex?
I think I was like ten or so. I had a crush on a boy named Mark Farrior. His mom was a biology teacher and so he considered himself an expert on all things, including how people "did it." One day in the schoolyard he told me that 'doing it' mean a man "put his wee-wee in a woman's pee hole." I called him a liar and hit him so hard I bloodied his nose and then gave up talking to boys until the following year. Later, when I learned he was sort of correct I felt bad. You think I should look him up and apologize?
 What song do you want to hear at your wedding?
Another wedding? How about "The Black Parade."
 Do you know someone who likes you?
 does more than one person like you?
I sure hope so.
 Are you currently in a relationship?
I already answered that.
Does any one give you butterflies?
(22) What music are you listening to?
"Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails
