1. What does your Livejournal name mean?
It's the name of a character I invented for the first "furry" story that I wrote. I was listening heavily to Split Enz at the time and was trying to come up with the character's name. I'd decided that the name had to start with a W (W___ the wedgetailed eagle). Split Enz has a song called "Give It A Whirl", so I did. ;> The spelling is simply because it looks better with a Y. The "Why Real Life?" pun didn't occur to me until about six months after I came up with the name, in case anyone was wondering.
2. Elaborate on your default photo? (Pictured.)
buran snapped this image a couple of days ago and I decided it just had to be made into an icon.
3. Make up a question.
What the frak happened to questions 22 and 23? ovO
4. What's your current relationship status?
The same as it always is. :p Single and lonely.
5. What EXACTLY are you wearing right now?
- The original Eagle Vertigo shirt that Rose had printed for me (white logo on brown t-shirt).
- A grubby old pair of shorts.
I had to throw something on to answer the door this morning.
6. What is your current problem?
Being unemployed. It's horribly depressing.
7. What do you love most?
That's a tough question. I'm tempted to answer "Watching Battlestar Galactica (2004)" because that is easily the best sci-fi series ever.
8. What makes you most happy?
Watching Battlestar Galactica! :D
9. Are you musically inclined?
I like to think that I'm "latently musically inclined". I've never learned to play any musical instruments but I sometimes get ideas for tunes in my head.
10. If you could go back in time, and change something, what would you change?
I'd learn to play the guitar. ;> Either that or I'd stop myself from going to QUGS back in first year uni. That would so completely fuck with this group's history. XD
11. If you MUST be an animal for ONE day, what would you be?
Guess. ovo (Of course, I'd be upset at the end of the day.)
12. Ever have a near death experience?
No and I plan to keep it that way. ;>
13. Name an obvious quality you have.
(I read that as "oblivious".) ovO I dunno. None of my qualities are particularly obvious. :P Modesty? XD
14. What's the name of the song that's stuck in your head right now?
Evermore - Everyone (Moving On)
15. Who did you cut and paste this from?
16. Name someone with the same birthday as you.
I share my birthday with Rose's mom which is kinda strange. ovo I also share my birthday with Enya.
17. Have you ever vandalized someone's private property?
No. I'd never do something like that.
18. Have you ever been in a fight?
Does being on the losing end of a fight count? I haven't been in a fight in my adult life.
19. Have you ever sung in front of a large audience?
No and it's going to stay that way. ;>
20. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?
ovo I think it's the hair usually.
21. What do you usually order from Starbucks?
Having never ordered from Starbucks the answer is "nothing". I usually get a tall flat white from RandomCoffeeOutlet though.
24. Has anyone ever said you looked like a celebrity?
No. I occasionally get mistaken for other redheads or the sibling of a redhead. No one has ever said I look like a celebrity (unless you count Rupert Grint - but I look nothing like him!).
25. Do you still watch kiddy movies or TV shows?
I never watched kiddy movies or shows when I was a kid! Why the frak would I watch them as an adult? XD
26. Did you have braces?
No! I possibly should have.
27. Are you comfortable with your height?
No too tall, not too short. It's just right! ;> (Okay, I wouldn't mind being a couple of inches taller.)
28. What is the most romantic thing someone has ever done for you?
No one has ever done anything romantic for me. :(
29. Do you speak any other languages?
Ahahahaha! No. I took six months apiece of French and German in high school and remember nothing from either. I also took Maori classes in primary school and remember nothing from that.
30. Do you have a crush on someone on your livejournal?
More than one girl. ovo I hate my life.
