Lolz @ BJ and the Bear. I loved that show as a kid and in fact named my one of my childhood cats B.J. because of it. Now that I'm older, BJ and the Bear sounds like a gay porn title.

Why were you hiding 13 cats in a closet?
Fran: CatNip!Kyou (FB)franwi on March 10th, 2008 11:19 pm (UTC)
LOL - BJ and the Bear, I'm sure someone's made that into a gay porn title by now. I think the same thing about Fruits Basket - it sounds like a gay porn movie, but lacks the leather and moustaches.

Ah, I was working in Las Vegas selling cats for a himalayan breeder who lived about 30 miles out of town. It was easier for people to view the cats in the city. But I was living in an apartment with a maximum of 2 cats. At the time I had 13 to show prospective buyers over the weekend. Then the complex decided to do inspection walk-throughs. So I had to stack the cats in carriers and boxes in a closet during the inspection, hoping they wouldn't make too much noise. It was a bit nerve-wracking, because the thought of the inspectors opening that closet and finding all these cats would have been rather... awkward, lol. Luckily they made the rounds and didn't suspect a thing. I still awe over pulling it off, though.
evilkat_meowevilkat_meow on March 11th, 2008 01:40 am (UTC)
You must have had very thick doors, cuz if I accidentally lock one of my cats in the closet, the howling can be heard on the other side of the house. I can't imagine what 13 sounds like.

Woot! Nipple piercings are hot...still trying to get my husband to do it.

As for me, my answers were posted above, but here are my replies to the questions specific to you:

18) What was your first impression of me?
A. You seem like a very quiet, thoughtful, and creative person who can cut loose and be a lot of fun to hang out with. I'd love to hear more about the cross-dressing some time.

As for the giving you a ride or letting you in my house questions, if I knew what you looked like, I'd say absolutely to both.^^
presser_kunpresser_kun on March 11th, 2008 01:16 am (UTC)
Re: here ya go . . .
As for me, my answers were posted above

-------really? (boggles) I read them, but somehow missed that they were yours. that makes what i'm about to say even more interesting, because:

as I read them, I thought on several questions, "Gee, she's got a really neat friend there."

really.

*laughs*

yeah, just ask, i'll tell you anything you want to know. i'm finally past the inhibition thing, though i don't tend to enjoy shocking people -- but you're ready, right? for one thing, I cross-dress underneath because of how it makes me feel, not because I think I look sexy (definitely not - too old for that). stats say more guys than you think do it - including quite a few senators and congressmen in washington - imagine that.
evilkat_meowevilkat_meow on March 11th, 2008 01:36 am (UTC)
Re: here ya go . . .
Yeah, that was all me. I love mixed martial arts cage fighting. lolz ^__^

And nothing shocks me anymore. As Pat Benatar sang, "hit me with your best shot." Politicians cross-dressing or anything else doesn't surprise me in the least. I have no love of politicians. They all seem so two-faced.
rookafrk on March 16th, 2008 04:15 am (UTC)
Oh! just saw that!

1) Are you currently in a serious relationship?

My ears are pierced and I have another piercing on top of the right one. Will double pierce that right one soon. Will definitely do the tongue sometimes in the near future. Wanna draw myself a tattoo and have it done at a significant point of my life - need to do the design and define what is a significant point of my life.

9) Worst Habit?
sucking noisily on peanut m&m's until they melt

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
Well, yes if i recognized you, but i have a very bad visual memory

11) What is your favorite sport?
Aikido & horseriding (it's nor posh or expensive where i'm from).

12) Do you have a Negative or Optimistic attitude?

Up until I was 12, people often thought i was a boy since my nick is also a male sounding one. Then the boobies arrived. I was considered an hyper and cute boy to suddenly be seen as a straight-forward and fearless girl while i felt I was the same, made think a lot about gender determination.

16) Do you have any pets?
Not at the moment

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly?

18) What was your first impression of me?
Through your writings which I discovered first I had the impression of a very good author, someone with a pretty sharp understanding. Through the emails and this journal I saw you more as an accomplished woman with a wicked (in the good way) sense of humour and a wide knowledge that for some reason i imagine self-taught.

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
They scare the crap out me.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
To be less hairy XD

21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
My friends often call me mum or big sis, so well, conscience i guess, though i doubt you need me...

22) What color eyes do you have?
Grey-green, the color changes every now and then.

23) Ever been arrested?
Yes

24) Bottle or can soda?
Bottle

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?
Buy a house on the seaside in Bretagne and go there often, lend it to my friends have great parties and wonderful times. But 10,000 is not enough ;_;

Cheezy, but with my friends.

Write. Draw. Play music. Sometimes all at the same time (it kinda works!

30) Do you swear a lot?
I'm french. It's a yes.

31) Biggest pet peeve?
People talking loudly on the phone in public transportation.

32) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
traveler

33) Do you believe/appreciate romance?
I'm not romantic irl, but in fiction, bring the sugar, babe.

35) Do you believe in God?
I don't believe in religions. God? I have no idea.

36) Will you repost this so I can fill it out and do the same for you?
My journal is not pimped enough, but if you don't mind commenting on this, i'd love to read your answers ^^

14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?
*smiles and turns head away* ... So... you still watching Bleach? I am not. Still worth it?


I can appreciate that answer. ;) And yes, I'm still watching and its still awesome.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
To be less hairy XD


FTW! That can be taken so many ways. lol

23) Ever been arrested?
Yes


Oh, there has got to be a story with this one. I must know what happened.

As for the questions directed at you, my first impression of you was through your writing as well. As I got to know you outside of that, I discovered someone who loves to live life to the fullest. You seem to want to experience as much as you can and don't seem afraid to take chances. And if I knew you and what you looked like, I would give you a ride and invite you into my house.^^





rookafrk on March 16th, 2008 11:30 pm (UTC)
Bleach is till cool? Well, i guess i'll need to keep myself busy in the plane back home, i might as well try to catch up and decide for myself then.

I'm afraid i meant hairy in the gross meaning - i kinda like my blond 'fro though it's weird, it's the body hair i could do without lol (unless there are other meanings i don't know about, i think that's it XD).

About my arrestation, there is a story, i don't know if you will actually find exciting... Hmmm ok, i'll try to make a long story short (it's not my forte) but i will have to give you some cultural input about France or i'll just sound like a political refugee XD

I'll actually send you the stroy by mail, it's too long to be accepted as a comment - if you find it boring or too long, skip it ;)
