1. Is there anything that you get freaked out by that other people probably see as mundane?

2. How important is family to you? Do you value your extended family or your immediate family more?

3. If you're watching a foreign movie or television show, do you prefer subtitles or dubbing?


1. Kissing. Don't get me wrong, I like kissing. It's generally pleasant, especially if the other person hasn't been eating something nasty in the last half hour or so. The problem is that (a) whenever tongue gets involved, it gets messy and kinda slimy, and there's a lot of mashing of lips and teeth poking into tender places, and (b) I don't like having my face that close to another person's face. It feels like a giant invasion of my personal space. I usually end up closing my eyes, which sometimes pisses the other person off, and then I keep wanting to close them again or turn my head or push the guy away when he stops kissing me and then hovers a couple inches in front of my face. It seriously makes me uncomfortable. I don't know if it's because the proximity just freaks me out, or if I just don't want them that close because I'm afraid it makes me look even uglier or what, but I honestly can't stand that. It gets me really flustered. And they all do it (and by all, I mean the five or six guys I've kissed over six years), so I feel like a tool for not being able to handle it.

2. Family is important to me, but more in a social support network sense than a "this is my lifeblood, this is who I am" sense. I hate feeling obligated to be nice to people or do things for people I dislike just because they're family. I've always felt closer to my immediate family, probably because I've never seen my extended family very often. Even those who lived in the same town, I only saw maybe once a month, with the exception of my grandparents. I really dislike my dad's side of the family anyway, so the less I see of them the better.

3. Subtitles. You usually get a better translation, the pacing is more natural since no one is trying to sync up with another person's mouth movements, and the voices actually sound natural as opposed to the voice actors trying too hard to sound like what they think the character needs to sound like.
