I got Tagged! So, here goes!
1. You must post these rules!!!
2. Each person must share 13 things about them.
3. Tag 13 other people.
4. Yes... Tag-backs ARE allowed.
5. Answer the 13 questions asked about you, and invent 13 other questions for the people you tag to answer.
6. No saying, "I'm sorry! I don't do tags!" (Or something along those lines...)
7. Be creative with the title!
And last, but the most important...
8. Have fun!
Okay, here goes… 13 things about me, in a most unappetizing form, ‘cause I don’t have the motivation to find any neat .gifs, or musics… (‘cause that would be cool, too, but I’m not cool… )
1 I have a Jack Skellington, holding a dreamcatcher, and riding a Nekobus. (There’s some trippy fandom shit!)
2 I don’t do phones, for reasons. They’re good reasons.
3 I try not to bother people by commenting on stuff and just end up alienating people, ‘cause they think I’m not interested.
4 I hate the word ‘I’… It’s so self-involved, and one tries not to be. (But I guess this whole thing is somewhat self-involved, simply by it’s nature, so I guess I’ll just have to use it. Sounds less pretentious than ‘one’, but more self absorbed. No winning here. )
5 I’m wondering why there are only 8 rules for 13 things. Not really a thing, but I am wondering.
6 I’m not the smartest. I’m struggling to think of things, already. I have 20 Pop Vinyl characters, that’s a thing, I guess.
8 If dreams are the illustrations to the book my soul is writing about my life, it’s gonna be a fantasy story. The pictures are going to be way better than the actual story. Waaaay better. Much more colorful and exciting. My soul obviously has problems with the truth!
9 hlwar is my oldest and bestest friend, in the sense we’ve been friends for ages, since we were kids, really. We were pen-pals when we were teenagers.
10 I’m re-watching Firefly at this very moment. You can’t take the sky from me…
11 I’m a princess. (Of the spoiled brat variety!)
12 I spend a great deal of time second guessing myself, and back-tracking on things. I’ve deleted half this post at least twice now. I waste so much time being unsure of myself.
13 I have 4 cat companions: Sir Alexander Inkybottom (Lexi), Mr. Hopkirk Whiskers, Smudge, and Bob.

Questions from hlwar answered:
1. How do you feel when someone Tags you for memes? Do you enjoy answering them?
To be perfectly honest, I feel like a dork, ‘cause they always call for tags, and I just haven’t got anyone to tag anymore. All the folks I used to tag have all run away and I feel like I’m burdening already busy people if I tag them. That said, I don’t mind doing them, if I have the time. They can be quite fun!
2. If you could go back in time and visit any historical moment or era, which would you choose and why?
Ummmm… I don’t know. I guess it would depend on the terms of the ‘visit’. If it’s a brief glimpse, no interaction kinda gig, I would love to see the forming of the world, or the moon, or dinosaurs, or so many cool things. If it’s a ‘live like they did for a day/week’ scenario, I’ll just stay right here, thank you very much!
3. How well do you work under pressure or with a deadline?
Depends on the situation, and how much I have invested in said situation. I’m not too bad if it’s something that doesn’t really matter in the scheme of things, but if it’s really important, I go to pieces.
4. Rate and briefly review the last three (3) books you read.
Last book I read - The Raven King : Book 4 of the Raven Cycle by Maggie Steifvater. It was a good conclusion to a brilliant series, about the search for the tomb of a lost medieval king who could magically grant a wish to the finder, a magical journey with vivid and likeable characters.
2nd last book - The Lies of Locke Lamorra by Scott Lynch. I really enjoyed this book about a band of thieves in an ancient and mysterious glass city, and their exploits. I would love my stories to have a feel like this series…
3rd last book - Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kauffman. Brilliant sci-fi with a unique format, a fast paced story full of intrigue and treachery. …
5. Rate and briefly review the last three (3) movies you saw.
Last movie - Now You See Me 2 … Sequel to Now You See Me. I liked it, it had magicians. I suck at reviews!
2nd last - The Dark Crystal … Classic fantasy. Love this movie about a Gelfling trying to re-unite two pieces of a magical crystal to bring harmony to a broken land.
3rd last - Circle … Bit weird. Aliens and human prejudices mingle and end in death.
6. If you were told you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?
This actually happened to an acquaintance of an acquaintance last week. He went to the Dr. feeling unwell and was told he was going to die that day… Creepily, he did. I think I would spend all my remaining time with my boyfriend and our beautiful cats. I would write him a letter to tell him how much he means to me, and apologizing for being a useless, worthless girlfriend, and screwing over more than half of his life.
7. What do you think of social networks? (Feel free to specificy and review the ones you use.)
I guess they have their uses. Not being big on the whole social thing, they’ve never really bothered me that much. I use Facebook to keep up with a couple of old penpals, I have a Twitter account, which I never use, ‘cause, like, Twitter… They’re all just advertising, trying to get money out of people. I have no money, so they aren’t really interested in me. I have a Tumblr and Google+. I had a Neopet up until yesterday when I needed to log in to change my password and couldn’t remember and got pissed off with their bullshit, and flagged it.
8. When you were a kid what did you dream of being when you grew up; and has that "career path" changed now that you're older?
I always wanted to be a writer. I thought it would be a nice, solitary pursuit. I was stupid. Writing isn’t a solitary thing. It’s all about blowing your own trumpet and interacting.
9. Favorite cartoon when you were a kid?
I don’t remember…
10. Do you have any goals (short or long term, dA or not) with your art/writing/creative pursuits?
I wish I did. I need to start actually having goals a wee bit more dramatic than ‘Get up’ and “Get dressed’. I would like to get better at everything, art, writing, craft work… But I’m not sure I even can anymore.
11. Which animal do you think you're most like, that represents you? Like a Totem animal, I guess.
I’m afraid that would have to be a lazy old cat. I wish it could be something a little more majestic, some sort of falcon, or raven. Maybe even a magpie… But I think, cat.
12. Why do you Watch me? I'm just curious...
Babe, I watch ya ‘cause I love ya!
13. If you've seen Young Justice, what do you think of the Runaways?
