When did your particular affinity for cats first come into existence, or how did you first become aware of it?
I grew up with a cat, and so I think it was baked into me from an early age. She was a black cat who was part Siamese, and was called Calamity Jane or CJ. She passed away when I was 17, alas.
Since then, the longest I've gone without living with a cat was when I lived with my ex for about a year or so.
If you could easily and temporarily dye your hair, would you? What color?
Some kind of dark blue that isn't neon or pure. Like and such as.
Have you ever wanted to be short or average height? What do you think it would be like?
I have never had a desire to be short or aver-- oh, I am above average height, okay. Anyways, no real desire for this. I have no idea, because all my ideas involve currently being tallish, and so all my assumptions are based on losing height, not on being short.
How do you feel about boating, swimming, and other ventures into open water? (Swimming pools and ponds don't count.)
I have no particular feelings on the matter. So long as I'm following safety procedures, I'm not fussed. Plus I know how to float and how to propel myself (I wouldn't really call it "swimming", but), so it's all good.
If you could skip being an undergraduate entirely--get the university equivalent of a GED--and go to graduate school, would you? If you did, what would you study?
I would not! I do not have the temperament for grad school. If I could magically acquire a college degree, I still have no idea, because I'm not temperamentally suited for focusing on any one particular topic for multiple years of my life.
Alls I really want to study nowadays are various techy things for certifications and the like. I'm somewhat interested in Agile methodology, and so will probably further investigate better testing procedures and such as.
