21. Righty or Lefty: Lefty, of course!

*** Your 'Firsts' ***

22. First best friend: I can't remember her name, but I had a best friend when I was little. She liked New Kids on the Block, though I didn't... And she lived in a renovated bus, her room was the luggage compartment, it was really cool!
23. First Award: I don't know... I got all kinds of awards all through school, not sure when the first one was.
24. First Sport You Joined: I never joined a sport. I actually hated sports, for very good reasons.
25. First pet: Scratch. Well, she was MY first pet. I miss her. ;_;
26. First Real Vacation: I don't know.... how am I supposed to remember that? My family went camping all the time when I was little, that was the closest that we came to real vacations.
27. First Concert: The Steve Miller Band... can't remember when, but it was after I graduated high school.
28. First Love: I don't know... I've loved a lot of people, but I can't say in which way. It's hard to tell, because I feel strongly for a lot of people that I'm very fond of, but I can't say whether it is/was romantic love or not some of the time. (There are some examples in my life right now)

*** Favorites ***

29. Movie: Labyrinth, Battle Royale, Charlie's Angels, The Little Mermaid, Josie and the Pussycats, Harry Potter, The Blair Witch Project, etc.
30. TV Show: The Amazing Race, Survivor, The O.C., One Litre of Tears (even though it's over), whatever thing I happen to be into at the time. Star Trek is love. =D
31. Colors: Pink, Orange, Red, Yellow.
32. Rapper: Karl Kitazawa (from the NaB's)... lol
33. Band: Kimeru, The NaB's (even though they're breaking up..), Savage Garden, Shania Twain, TaTu, Bruce Springsteen, Britney Spears, The Steve Miller Band, etc.
34. Song Right Now: I'm on a Gravitation kick, so I'm reliving the brilliance that is the Gravitation OST. ^^
35. Friend: I love all of my friends equally! I see more than others, but it doesn't mean that I love others less at all.
36. Candy: Reese's Peanut Butter Cups!
37. Sport to Play: I love to play Tennis, Basketball, Soccer, Frisbee, Swimming, etc. I like to play sports, only for fun tho. ^^
38. Restaurant: I don't have a favorite, I try a lot of new ones. I love Mexican, Thai, and Indian food especially. I want to try French food!
39. Favorite brand to wear: Whatever looks good on me and I like! I prefer something original rather than normal, but not outlandish. Something that suits my personality, which is pretty rare.
40. Store: I like Animate of course, and Mandarake, K-Books, etc, though I don't go there often these days. I like Gain because of Takashi..... uhhhh.... otherwise, I just like stores in Shibuya and Harajuku and stuff because they're cheap and fun. ^^
41. Subject: I always loved math, especially calculus. I also loved art. ^^
42. Animal: Wolves!
43. Book: I read a LOT. Recently, I read a lot of manga (currently working on finishing Hana Yori Dango), but I also love Harry Potter, and fantasy novels. I really enjoyed the early Dark Elf books (the trilogy is awesome tho it goes downhill from there) from R.A. Salvatore, and Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern books. The Miles Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster Bujold, the Shadow books by Anne Logston, The Psion series by Joan D. Vinge, the Elsewhere series by Will Shetterly, and the Kushiel Trilogy by Jacqueline Carey (stop me before I list too many) were absolutely brilliant, also! As for classics, I am very fond of Jules Verne's The Mysterious Island, and Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn.
44. Magazine: Recently, I only regularly read The Metropolis, an english magazine in Japan.
45. Shoes: Anything that is cute and doesn't have heels, and is comfy.

*** Currently ***

46. Feeling: Lalalaaaaa~
47. Secret: It wouldn't be a secret if I told you!
48. Have a crush: Yeah... unsure of the nature of the crush, but there is definitely someone that I like a lot in Tokyo.
49. Eating: I just had chocolate.
50. Drinking: I had milk, currently just water.
51. Typing: This....
52. Online?: My computer is always online as long as it's on. That doesn't really mean anything though. ^^;;
53. Listening To: Musiiiiiiiiiic ♪
54. Thinking About: My manga.
55. Wanting To: Finish my manga.
56. Watching: Nothing at the moment. Thinking of popping in Josie and the Pussycats or Charlie's Angels while I do house-stuff.
57. Wearing: Red concert t-shirt and black underwear... (bedtime)

*** Future ***

58. Want Kids?: It depends on my partner, they would have to raise them mainly.
59. Want to be Married?: Yes, I want to. Probably to a girl but there's always the possibility of a guy. Maybe.... highly unlikely, but maybe.
61. Where do you want to live: Tokyo, forever. I never want to live anywhere else!
62. Car: I still want a yellow jeep, as I always have! I will get one eventually, or something that looks similar but is smaller.

*** Which is Better With The Opposite/Same Sex ***

63. Hair color: I love red hair!!
64. Hair length: I prefer girls that are more girly-looking, that is they have hair at least shoulder length. I prefer boys to have hair that's long but not long (hard to explain ^^;;;). It should make them look feminine. ^^
65. Eye color: It doesn't matter.
66. Measurements: Doesn't matter.... well, okay, with guys, I prefer very thin ones. With girls, I prefer them to have a defined figure.. A full to overweight figure is best. I don't like skinny girls, and PLEASE have boobs!! The bigger the better. =D~~~~~ (Hello Orihime!)
67. Cute or Sexy: Like Sakuma Ryuichi (from Gravitation) please!
68. Lips or Eyes: I love eyes!! Looking at lips is boring for me. I would rather kiss them.
69. Hugs or Kisses: It depends on who's giving it to me. ^.~
70. Short or Tall: Doesn't matter, everyone's shorter than me anyways.
71. Easygoing or serious: Easygoing, please!!! This is a must. ^-^
72. Romantic or Spontaneous: A spontaneous romantic, please. ^-^
73. Fatty or Skinny: Whichever whatever.
74. Sensitive or Loud: WTF? Sensitive, please!
75. Hook-up or Relationship: Sometimes I feel like I want to date for fun, but really I'd prefer to try for a relationship or not at all.
76. Sweet or Caring: A sweet and caring person. ^^
77. Trouble Maker or Hesitant One: Rather, I like people who are fun and take chances, but won't get us in big trouble. ^^ Someone who is willing to do almost anything once!

*** Have you ever ***

78. Kissed a Stranger: I always know their names. ^.~ (okay, no, never kissed a stranger..)
79. Had Alcohol: Of course, I live in Japan.
80. Smoked: NO, and I never will. Nor would I date someone who does.
81. Ran Away From Home: No.
82. Broken a bone: No, but I broke my nose once.
83. Got an X-ray: At the dentist's.
84. Been with someone: Sexually? I am 26, you figure it out.
85. Broken Someone's Heart: Unfortunately, yes.
86. Broke Up With Someone: Yes......
87. Cried When Someone Died: Of course.
88. Cried At School: Of course.

*** Do You Believe In ***

89. God: Nope, sorry.
90. Miracles: I believe in miracles *sings*. But they're not caused by a "god".
91. Love At First sight: Lust, yes. And I believe in realizing a connection at first sight. I don't belive in true love occuring until you know someone well, though. But the romantic notion is appealing to me.
92. Ghosts: Of course. I've seen them myself.
93. Aliens: Seen spaceships, so of course I do. I would either way.
94. Soul Mates: Yes, definitely. You can have more than one, and they aren't necessarily romantic, either. But it is the person whom you truly love the most of all in the world, forever.
95. Heaven: I dunno. It's a nice notion, and it doesn't bother me whether it exists or not.
96. Hell: Same. I would sure like to banish some people there, that's for sure.
97. Angels: Yeah but it's probably not a religious thing.
98. Kissing on The First Date: I don't think that it's a big deal. You should follow your heart.
99. Horoscopes: They're fun. *sings along with Weird Al*

*** Answer Truthfully ***

100. Is There Someone You Want But You Know You Can't have?: I don't believe that there's anyone you can't have a relationship with if you want to. People who say "I can't date so-and-so, so I won't try" make me mad. Have more faith in yourself!! You're worthy of anyone, and trust me.... if you have high self-confidence, then you can make almost anyone fall in love with you. It is just up to you to treat them well and maintain a good relationship. You hear that, GIRLS?! If you want to date someone, go and make it happen, don't wait around listlessly forever hoping they'll recognize your greatness! Go go IKEEEE yo!!!

Kushiel Trilogieeeeeeeeee!!! *shrieks* YOU ARE ONE OF THE FEW WHO KNOW ABOUT IT, MUCH LESS LIKE EEEEET!! ♥♥♥

..What's more, you like, and KNOW about Mercedes Lackey. *sparkles happily* The world is a better place.

For that, I shall give you an apple! (Or maybe a different fruit, because fruits are expensive in Japan. Mango? =D)

And because you are a Leo, I shall give you a sparkly happy sticker!! *hands you said sticker* ♥♥♥

Leos have more fun xD
Hi-chan (火ちゃん): Raspberrieshinoai on August 12th, 2006 02:48 pm (UTC)
Leos do have more fun! ^o^

I totally goofed on that, I wrote down Mercedes Lackey as writing the Pern series! I should be shot! XDXD;;;; Though I do love quite a few of Lackey's books! I especially loved the Born to Run books. ^^

And apples are more expensive than mangoes here, so I'll take one! *bites*

LOL. I like those, especially number 100 :D

'I want my ears pierced and to get a belly button ring one day, though... if I don't get too old.'

Do it nooooow ! Go out today and get it done. Life is too short, yes?! Also, although it may hurt, it'll be worth it because you can buy cute earrings and belly button jewellry !! Do it!

I have one more question. The day you arrived in Japan for the very first time! Did it feel like you were 'home'? (if you know what I mean)
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 12th, 2006 02:53 pm (UTC)
I would get them now, but when I got my ears pierced when I was younger, I threw up. It hurt too much. x.x And I want to make my stomach flat before I get it pierced... otherwise there's no point. ^^;;

When I arrived in Japan? Mmmmm...... well, honestly, my first day was a little overwhelming. My company helped me to my home station and I was pretty lost. My roommates met me there and took me home.... where I took a shower and went right to bed. I'd been up more than 24 hours, after all. =D And it was my first time travelling to a foreign country. The second day, I was pretty overwhelmed still, and trying to get my bearings. I got lost a lot and wandered around a lot. I actually got pretty depressed after the excitement wore off, because I didn't have any friends yet. But thanks to Eda, I started to get my bearings... and she's actually one of the main reasons that I stayed in Japan at the time, so I 'm really grateful to her.
アナベル: girlhikaru_yui on August 12th, 2006 02:34 pm (UTC)
Now I know more things about you! ^^ lol

I have question ^^U if you have time to answer xD

TeniMyu *performer*:
Song of TeniMyu:
Best song of Gravitation:

^^ you’re having too much fun in Japan! Good Luck with your manga~!

I wanted to send you a present for your birthday but I don’t have your address >.< *so sad* I ate the candies… =___= but I still have more stuff… xD ^^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 12th, 2006 03:23 pm (UTC)
ROFLOL! (I love presents..... I am a present whore.... is you send me your email address, I'll email you with my snail mail address *proceeds to confuse everyone with sentences*)

Hmmmm..... Tenimyu huh? Okay yo~
TeniMyu *performer*: My favorite was Yanagi Kotaroh (but no surprise since I love Ryoma and he was the best Ryoma). I also had a great fondness for Ishibashi Yuusuke's Horio, I'm sad that he's gone. Mmmm, after Tenimyu, I really liked Nagayama Takashi and Kimeru's careers (though in Tenimyu I didn't care so much, though Kimeru was pretty gay funny as Fuji), I thought that they really grew into good performers. ^^ On a personal level, because they have been very sweet/good to me over the years, I like Kenn and Wada Masato. They're so friendly, I can't help but feel fond of them as people. And Kenn is a great singer on top of that.
Song of TeniMyu: Right now, I like several songs from Rokkaku myu a lot-- "Over my Way," "Onna no ko to chuu", and Hyoutei's new fight song "Ice and Fire". As for others, I especially like, "Do Your Best" Hyoutei rap version, "Data wa Uso o Tsukanai yo", "Makezugirai, (Hyoutei ver)" "Ore-sama no bigi ni boogie woogie", "On my way", "I'm always winner," "Power Up de Ikou!" and "Erabareshii Elite (syuudan ver)". But my favorite of all time is, "Omae wa Seigaku no hashira ni nare."
Best song of Gravitation: "Sleepless Beauty", hands down!! It's one of my favorite songs of all time from any anime, I think! =D

Well I DO understand that, but it´s kind of sad cuz most people think so T_T ...

Smoked: NO, and I never will. Nor would I date someone who does.
I absolutely agree ! :DDDDDD WAY TO GO !!! ^__^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 12th, 2006 03:49 pm (UTC)
Smoking is gross. Yucky yuck yuck.

Why is it sad that people like big boobs? I think that small ones have their uses. As I noted to my guy friend the other day, he doesn't have any boobs, but I still like him. ^^

If I had self-confidence...
I wouldn't be anonymous.

If I lived in Tokyo, I would ask you out. (If I dared to)

I'm not saying that I'm in love with you. I don't know you, you don't know me.

I'm a girl with natural red hair, and I stalk your journal cause I find you interesting. (We do have that love for boobs in common)
Firsa Asahiasahifirsa on August 13th, 2006 02:10 am (UTC)
I'm surprised you've read the MI by Jules Verne. It's among my top three favourite books :) I re-read it every year at least once :)
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 13th, 2006 02:15 am (UTC)
Why surprised? ^^ It's one of my favorite books of all time! My dad gave me his copy when he was little, and I've loved it ever since.

DAC, the curious little catboy_dac_ on August 13th, 2006 08:06 am (UTC)
:< I make Hinoai mad? T_T
*coughs* Seriously though, it doesn't matter how much person A wants person B if person B absolutely does not want person A. Or if person A wants person B but person B is always dating someone else(not even getting into married). And if A & B are friends? And what about someone a great distance away but they both have very busy schedules?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on August 13th, 2006 03:02 pm (UTC)
Person B may not want person A at the beginning, but if you believe in yourself and you are a good person, then Person A will eventually come around. But you have to work for it, love doesn't just happen.. it takes a lot of work from both sides. Be patient and believe in yourself! And come on... .even married doesn't mean anything. Love doesn't listen to marriage vows, just ask all of the people that are married.

I believe that if you truly love someone, you will want what is best for them. That may not be you (there are some people that I feel this way about especially), but whomever will make them happy. But if you think that truly, the best person for them IS you, then you owe it to both of you to try!!

Chazagichazagi on September 18th, 2006 07:26 pm (UTC)
There were few things that I found surprising that we actually share. I like Savage Garden. My best friend doesn't like them and she gave her Darren Hayes CD to me because of that ^^''' I also listen to Gravitation. Not that much anymore but my last dance try out music was Kotani Kinya's Love Stuff (this was like half a year ago though when I was still in America).

I know R.A. Salvatore writes in English but I still looked twice when you mention Dark Elf. I love the first book Homeland and then that one but what was its name in English again. The one with Jarlaxle and Artemis Entreri, if you know it. Servant of the Shard or something. The new cover designs have been really pretty, I think. During my year in USA I found Joan D Vinge's books. I'm really into them now and I curse that I can't get them in here. I need to order them straight from USA. I only have Tangled up in Blue and I'm reading it right now ^^ I'm so going to make my sister and friends read her books. I love them!

I wonder why many people prefer big boobs O.o Well, that just takes me of the hook then :D Not that I would mind having a relationship with someone but oh well.

I'm really interested to know how you got this whole Japan thing started. Like where did you live at first and how did you get that place. Was it easy to get a job and stuff like that. I guess you have told all this in the first journal entries but they can't be read anymore -.- I hope to do one day something similar to what you have done so that's why I'm really interested.

I have read how you do all this crazy stuff as you hang around with your friends and so. Because of that I want to ask something else. Is it you who makes your friends crazy of your friends that make you crazy? Just a funny fact ^^
