Thanks to luminousmarble
for pointing me to this:
The Great and the Good stopped by slowfox's LJ to pool their collective curiosity, and here's what they want to know about you:
Me, Myself, Iacemyth: What is your philosophy/motto in life?
Life is deadly beautiful.cynthia_black: How did you choose your User Name, and what does it reveal of your character?
My User Name comes from my Pen Name on FanFiction.Net and other sites, which comes from way back when I used the nice little elven name elements in the end of The Silmarillion to make myself an elven name. I'm not entirely sure what it reveals about me, but it certainly has made me wonder how I could find such a perfect name for me. (It means Blue Eagle.) Too many quizzes prove this...aome: What did you want to be "when you grew up" when you were younger? If your current job/plans are different, why did you change?
Teacher. Changed because by the end of highschool I had enough of schools, really!cycloethen: What was the worst nightmare you have ever had?
The one in which I was kidnapped. (and I was only 6 when I had this one... *shudders*)cedarlibrarian: Tell the story behind one or more of your scars (physical, not emotional).
Fell after swimming class in school. Cut my leg. Still don't know how exactly it happened...luminousmarble: What one thing would you like your great-great-grandchildren to know about you? What one thing would you NOT want them to know?
To know: That I love (or would have loved) them very much.
NOT to know: That I have a REALLY dark side.naath: How do you learn (things-for-exams)?
I don't...bopeepsheep: What was the cause of the worst physical pain you have ever been in?
The same accident I told about in the scar question. I also managed to hit my ribs on a step in the washing room... Didn't even notice the cut for this...til_midnight: Where do you live (a country is fine, just name a place)?
Estoniasiriaeve: What is your biggest fear?
Nostalgia Ain't What It Used to Beamaterasu: What's the coolest thing you've ever done? (Not the best, or the most accomplished, or the most life-altering, just the coolest).
I have not done any cool things. I'm an extremely uncool person.shelaghc: If you could change one event from your own personal history, what would it be and how would you change it?
I would not move to Valga.linaelyn: Describe the one thing have you learned in the course of your education, either inside school or outside of it, which you consider the most valuable?
School makes you lazy.dancingrain: What memory would call up your personal Patronus spell? (in other words, what memory is your happiest or sweetest?):
Probably something from when I still lived in Otepää. Playing in the garden, for example...glissando: Describe the three best pairs of shoes that you've ever owned - favourites because of comfort, the way they look, the brand, any reason at all.
A pair of old brown cowboy boots. Light blue sneakers with white stripes that were matching my sister's pink ones. My bare feet. That's all.
If I Ruled the Worldeilanhp: If you could have been born and grown up somewhere else, where would that have been?
Rio De Janeiro. Don't ask...praetorianguard: What would you demand in exchange for giving up your personal freedoms and civil liberties?
A small country, at least.wittywibbles: If there were no laws, which (former) crime would be the first you'd commit?
Probably theft.nightfalltwen: If you could do one thing or grant one wish for someone else, what would it be?
This has to be one of the hardest questions here... Give myself the ability to fly, probably...therealmarajade: If you could know anything about your future, what would it be?
If there's the One out there for me...annamilton: Owing to a peculiar concatenation of events, you are the wealthiest person in the world, and the latter will end in 24 hours. Money being no object, and saving the world being impossible, what would you do during that last day?
Buy things that I've wanted for way too long, pay my family's debts, and buy them something nice too. And maybe visit some of these people
.laurelwood: If you could hunt down one childhood tormentor (whether it be bully, tattletale, mean teacher, or friend's mother who hated you for no good reason) and exact revenge upon them in some spectacular, prankish fashion without worry of consequences, who would you choose, and what would you do to him/her?
Probably hunt down a certain bully from highschool and use the usual wild-west tar-and-feathers treatment on him...robynwepsley: If I offered you a chance to have anything you wanted, the cost being someone you didn't know dies, would you accept?
No. Never. Not even if it's some evil dictator. That's how I feel.beccafran: If you could have any one superpower, what would it be?
The ability to fly.hailebop: If you could punch any one person from any point in history, who would you pick?

A better one.slytherincesss: If you could alter history in one specific place, where would it be, and why?
My usual answer since I was 6 would be to prevent the discovery of America to let the natives there create their own kind of modern civilization.tolarian: Assuming you (or a group of friends) conquer Earth, which section(s) of the planet would you personally desire, and why?
I'd take the places where my friends
live. Plus Greece. Wanted that since I learned about the ancient Greece in history...vanityfair: If you could, with no repercussions, subject anyone you wanted to one day of utter and complete torture, who would you choose, why would you choose them, and what would you do to them? Conversely, if you could give anyone you wanted (other than yourself) one day of perfect happiness, who/why/what would you choose?
Torture: My father. For being the **** he is. And you REALLY don't want to know what I'd do... I'm insane, you know...
Hapy day: My youngest sister Rebekka. Because she's my favourite relative. And she deserves it.
Media and Cultureslowfox: Hollywood called: they're filming your life story. Who do you cast as yourself?
Enough of those prank calls! ... What? You're real? OK, take Robert Carlyle. (Who in my opinion would've also been the perfect choice for Remus Lupin. Ever since I saw The Full Monty.)angelofthenorth: They want to make your life into a Cartoon. Which graphic artist do you want to draw it?
The one who created Noir.deralte: Your favourite Blackadder episode and why?

Don't even know...magoo42: Batman or Superman?
Superman. Because he can fly... :)ladyvorkosigan: What fictional character do you most identify with and why?

How much are you willing to pay?piperx: Would you rather be
- a complete idiot with a charming personality
- intellectually brilliant but have no friends?
I'll take the idiot. I can tell from experience that the other choice is NOT the better one.jiggery_pokery: You can start any business of your choice, whether for-profit or non-profit, regardless of whether this business exists practically in the world or not and whether there's an existing business model to make your chosen business work or not. Irrespective of what it is, it will start off moderately successfully and eventually become very successful. You will make a very satisfactory wage and your investors/sponsors will be very pleased with your work. What business would you start?
The greatest Internet company ever, including providing e-mail and free web space, a big Internet portal, and of course, take over FanFiction.Net.sophie10: Would you sacrifice an unknown portion of your life so that a loved one could live for one more year?
Yes, even if it's everything I have left.
