3) What did you give out on Halloween, or what would you have given?
[info]eutheria -- ...
[info]banshee -- Everything! Four kinds of chocolate bars, Twizzlers, lollipops...
[info]doraphilia -- sound advice
[info]mip -- blow jobs
[info]marciamarcia -- If any of the little fuckers had actually shown up, they would have found a bounty of Take 5s, Butterfingers, Peanut Butter M & Ms, and Heath bars. But no. We had to eat all that ourselves.
[info]burn_in_heaven_ -- little chocolate nugget bars
[info]thespunmonkey -- we live on a freaky country highway, so no trick-or-treaters, but i guess i would probably give out lollipops. i love lollipops.

[info]msanborn -- Lots of mini candy bars
[info]dryad271 -- candy!

4) A pickup truck... If you were to call it by one word, would you just say 'truck' or would you just say 'pickup'?
[info]eutheria -- ...
[info]banshee -- pickup
[info]doraphilia -- truck
[info]mip -- truck
[info]marciamarcia -- In my childhood, I'd have said "pickup". Now I'd say "truck".

6) James thinks yogurt is guaranteed to make your nails and hair nice. I think that glue and spit have very similar properties. Both of these are true, to an extent. What are your folk beliefs? Do you knock on wood, do you prefer to pet animals with your left hand, do you sniff a certain scent while studying? I want to know something you hold dear, even though you know it's not all that true, real, or useful.
[info]eutheria -- ...
[info]banshee -- I knock wood, say 'rabbit rabbit rabbit' on the 1st of the month...
[info]doraphilia -- blessing the car when I run a yellow light (kissing my hand and tapping the ceiling)
[info]mip -- if you relish in anything, it will be taken away.
[info]marciamarcia -- I touch the roof of my car when going through yellow lights. Sometimes, I also say "zoom".
[info]burn_in_heaven_ -- wishing at 11:11?
[info]thespunmonkey -- spit is very useful. yogurt IS a superfood. my son and i must start our day with a 'good morning sun dance' (sun salutation) or all hell breaks loose.
[info]sandwhichestime -- I take a deep breath and blow it out my mouth veeeeeery slowly when I'm stressed. that's about it.
[info]jeney -- n/a
[info]onlyifyousnoop -- Hmmmm... I put saliva (my own) on cuts (my own). I think it has antibacterial qualities.
[info]msanborn -- I still believen in love; does that count?
[info]dryad271 -- I knock on wood sometimes. And I hex cars for safety on long or grueling commutes.

All those people really say crayons the way it's spelt?? I say crans. Now I feel stupid for doing so.

somehow, crans is better than kranz. kranz implies a hideous twang. the k and the z lend the word an overquickness at the beginning and the end. crans sounds like a british nickname for berries.

If that's how you must rationalize continuing to hang out with me despite my idiocy, then so be it.
