9 Currents
Current Feeling: Incredibly anxious, as I just made last-minute plane reservations to visit my family for one week in the Deep Red State. I leave on Monday. I have my annual report, article revisions, and article-length version of paper due. What was I thinking?!?!?!?
Current Drink: Water. Cold coffee from this morning.
Current Time: 3:20 p.m.
Current Show on TV: No T.V. on at the moment
Current Mobile used: LG
Current Windows:,, Ink & Incapability, Bloglines
Current Underwear: None, of course
Current Clothes: Navy blue camisole and boy shorts
Current Thought: I seem more stylish than I am. You should know I haven't showered in 48 hours and my hair is especially Medusa-like. I am no doubt frightening the neighbors, who can see me in the garret window.

8 Firsts
First Nickname: Agapita
First Kiss: Awkward, during a game of "Post Office" at a cast party after a play I was in when I was 11.
First Crush: Kenny Wong, my kindergarten love. I used to chase him around the schoolyard, trying to kiss him.
First Best Friend: Jenny, 6-9 years old
First Vehicle I Drove: Two-tone blue Datsun (yes, before it was Nissan) 240SX. It was a hand-me-down from my mother. It talked ("Fuel level is low," "Right door is ajar"); I wrecked it.
First Job: Selling Levi's
First Date: A proper date? When I was 14 with my first love/high school boyfriend. I think we went to school dance.
First Pet: Red Baron, the giant Persian attack cat

7 Lasts
Last Drink: As in alcoholic? A Jameson's on the rocks.
Last Kiss: Tragic break-up kiss with now ex-boyfriend.
Last Meal: Omelet, spicy V8, coffee
Last Web Site Visited: Ink & Incapability
Last Movie Watched: Grizzly Man, which I highly recommend. The contrast between Timothy Treadwell's crazy, sweet ebullience and Herzog's creepy Germanness is genius.
Last Phone Call: Dr. Crazy
Last TV show Watched: The Daily Show
