Ganked from queenwench

1. Elaborate on your default icon. It's Gir! Gir is my favorite cartoon character, as well as the namesake for my beloved laptop. For better or worse, there are some distinctive personality similarities between us.

2. What's your current relationship status? Happily married, and 1/4 of a polyfidelitous quad.

3. Ever have a near-death experience? I've had a few.

4. Name an obvious quality you have. I'm easily amused.

5. What's the name of the song that's stuck in your head right now? I'm listening to Invisible Sun, by The Police.

6. Any celeb you would marry? No, but there are quite a few that I'd enjoy spending an evening with. :-)

7. Has anyone ever said you look like a celebrity? I've been told that I look a lot like Tim Curry, particularly when I smile. (And when I wear high heels and a feather boa)

8. Do you wear a watch? Always, except when I'm in the shower. I get twitchy if I don't have access to the time at a moment's notice.

9. Do you have anything pierced? No

10. Do you have any tattoos? Not yet...

11. Do you like pain? No. It's distracting.

12. Do you like to shop? Generally no, though I do enjoy wreaking havoc at the grocery store!

13. What was the last thing you paid for with cash? Toll money for the trip back from a LAN party Saturday night

14. What was the last thing you paid for with your credit card? I don't know what exactly, but it was food.

15. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone? Frank G.

16. What is on your desktop background? External monitor: a "blueprint" of Gir (the robot). Built-in LCD: a b/w pic of a gorgeous woman's ass (nobody I know)

17. What is the background on your cell phone? A very blurry photo of VNV Nation that I took with the phone

18. Do you like redheads? Yes, and one in particular

19. Do you know any twins? I've met a few sets of twins in the past, but don't currently know any

20. Do you have any weird relatives? Does the Addams Family ring a bell? (Actually, I'm the strangest of the lot of us.)

21. What was the last movie you watched? Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

22. What was the last book you read? Read? Hacking Matter, by Wil McCarthy. Finished? Who knows? I lack the focus to finish a book before I get distracted.

My own Gir kicked the bucket. :( However, AppleCare is replacing it w/ a brand new MacBook! I'm going to name it Dory, in keeping w/ my theme of female cartoon characters. (No one's proven to me that Gir isn't female.)

I'm sorry about your loss, but ooh the shininess of a MacBook! Were you able to preserve it's/your data?

As for Gir's gender (and I'm admittedly being a stickler for details here), Zim refers to him as "he", and he is seen flirting with girls (not that that's necessarily telling).

Then again, he *is* a robot, and therefore doesn't really have any gender at all. :-)

I got my music (yay iPod) and documents, but I seem to have forgotten the photos. :( I have the good ones in low resolution, but not high.

Which episode/s does Zim refer to Gir by a gender, and in what context? That's the detail no one's been able to tell me so I can look it up and see.

You know what? I'm mistaken. I thought Zim referred to Gir as "he" in the first episode, but I went back to get the exact line and he said "it".

It's not exactly cannon, but in the commentary they refer to Gir as "he" from time to time. (Specific example: in the first episode, at 13:35, someone says "Don't you just want to strangle him?")

Rikki Simons, who did Gir's voice, is male, but if that counted as cannon then Bart Simpson would be female. :-)

The thought of you in high heels and a feather boa is unsettlingly intriguing.
