Been playing Teddy for awhile, may as well make sure I'm doing it right!

|You rarely get angry and it takes a lot to make you angry, however you are sensitive about what others think of you. Your concern about rejection and ridicule cause you to feel shy and uncomfortable around others. You are easily embarrassed and often feel ashamed. Your fears that others will criticize or make fun of you are exaggerated and unrealistic, but your awkwardness and discomfort may make these fears a self-fulfilling prophecy. You tend not to talk much and prefer to let others control the activities of groups. You prefer facts over fantasy and are more interested in what is happening in the real word. You find helping other people genuinely rewarding and are generally willing to assist those who are in need. You find that doing things for others is a form of self-fulfillment rather than self-sacrifice, however you do not like to claim that you are better than other people, and generally shy from talking yourself up. You strive hard to achieve excellence. Your drive to be recognized as successful keeps you on track toward your lofty goals. You often have a strong sense of direction in life, but may sometimes be too single-minded and obsessed with your work.|

Because we never really know each other as well as we think, in response to this post I'd like you to ask a question. Anything about which you are curious, anything you feel you ought to know about me. Silly, serious, personal, fannish. Ask away. Then copy this to your own journal, and see what people don't know about you.
Feel free to ask multiple questions. Make sure that the questions are IC.
ETA: Also feel free to ask questions for Tonaja.
Son of ETA: And Paco.
Sorry for the lack of warning, but I'm not going to be around (much) this weekend. It's family vacation time, and the place we're staying at only has internet in the lobby area, which is two buildings away from where I'm staying, and also has no available electric plug-ins. Sorry about that!
ETA: And I see this is just in time for the Wild West plot. Dammit!
Return of ETA: And now it is moot, for I return!
Our internet router is made of fail and has died. Hopefully, I'll be back on the internet this afternoon. At the latest, I'll be back on sometime this weekend.
Computer isn't working for some reason. Hopefully I'll be able to fix it, but that's where I've disappeared to if I don't show up.
The bell on the door to the little cafe jingled, causing Teddy Altman to sit up straighter in his seat and twist around to see who had just entered the building. For the second time in as many minutes, he was disappointed. He checked his watch and sighed, propping his chin up on his hand. Billy wasn't due to arrive for another five minutes.
He was aware that he was probably being an utter dork about this, but a date with Billy was a date with Billy, and he was excited. As much fun as being a super hero was, it did keep both of them pretty busy, and they hadn't really had the time to go out on many dates.
Which was probably why he'd caught a ride over to the cafe fifteen minutes before he needed to. He'd wanted to make sure that he got there in time.
He just hadn't factored in waiting.
The bell on the door jingled again and he twisted around to check again.

Does this embarrassed, flailing discussion look familiar to anyone else?"Steve's Naked Rant"
Start at about the three-minute mark and I think you'll see what I mean.
No actual nudity, just ranting about it. And Jack Davenport, who has proven that he can manage the "commodore ice-cream cone" look as well as the "scruffy drunken morally-ambiguous psuedo-pirate" look.
And now I really want to watch Coupling
again. Do we get the BBC network at the Tower?
Therefore...let's kick-start some more meme madness!
to post your own answers for this meme.)
( it goes on...Collapse )ETA:
|✓ I miss somebody right now.
||✓ I don't watch much TV these days. (Super heroing kind of eats up the free time, doesn't it?)
|| × I own lots of books.
| × I wear glasses or contact lenses. (Don't need 'em.)
|| × I love to play video games. (It's fun, but I'm not very good at it.)
|| × I've tried marijuana.
| × I've watched porn movies.
|| × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship.
||✓ I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
|✓ I curse sometimes.
||✓ I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. (Oh yes. For the much better.)
|| × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.
I forgot to mention that I did
have a mobile phone. It just didn't take the kidnapping as well as I did.

Gert, you clearly know what you're doing here. This is the second time that you've kicked my ass (the first time was over in Billy's dungeon).
I'm beginning to think that the only way that you can survive these things is to "escape the dungeon".
((OOC: Okay, not technically game-verse, but it struck me as a good place to put it))( read the subjectCollapse )
Feel free to add more. (Teddy: I could always use the ideas...)

Uh, Karolina, that wasn't exactly what I had in mind when I said that we should talk... ;)

I refuse to be anyone VIII. People with "the Eighth" tacked on to their names are CRAZY.
Proof: Henry VIII. Seriously.
"Mr. Pope! I'm gonna marry my first wife, then I'm gonna divorce her. Now, I know what you're gonna say, but stick with me. My story gets better. Second wife, I'm gonna kill her! Cut her head off. Ah, not expecting that, are we? Third wife gonna shoot her. Fourth wife, put her in a bag. Fifth wife, into outer space. Sixth wife, on a rotissamat. Seventh wife, made out of jam..."
Eddie Izzard clearly knows what he's talking about here. Gahh.

Comment to this entry and...
1. I'll respond with something random I like about you.
2. I'll tell you what song/movie reminds me of you.
3. I'll name something we should do together.
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me (or just me).
5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
6. I'll leave you a quote that is somehow appropriate to you.
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal so you can do the same for other people.
I may have done this one before, but I don't think that everyone commented. So, have at!
- Music:mechanical whirrings
If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now (even if we don't speak often), please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL memory of you and me. It can be anything you want - good or bad - BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE.
When you're finished, post this little paragraph on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you.
*grins* Let's get this party started!
- Music:silence... I'm worried now.
1. What is your favorite movie?Hero
. What? It's a gorgeous movie!
2. What is the worst movie you have ever watched?
That really bad horror movie that Vizh and Tommy were watching the other night. Oi
3. What was the last movie you saw in the theatre?
Well, Billy and I were
going to go see a movie a little over a week ago, but then there was the whole thing with the alien abductions. And the time before that, we had to cancel because there was a crime going on. If anything screws up this next date, I swear to god I am going to seriously damage something.
4. Sugared or salted popcorn? Or maybe butter?
Butter and extra salt.
5. Movie theatre or DVD?
DVD's, at the moment.
- Music:Billy plotting. I'm not telling you against whom.
If you woke up and I was in bed with you, what would be your first thought?
Reply here, then post the above line in your own journal.
*points* Karolina's fault!
