The second set of questions from the meme two days ago, all from [livejournal.com profile] teapostal. This will also be the last question set unless a straggler comes out of the woodwork to ask something more.

37. Do you believe in luck?
Well contrary to yesterday, I do believe in luck. This belief comes mostly from my inability to play Risk. The game is entirely based on dice rolls and I know that straight probability should make me just as likely to beat my brother as he is to beat me, yet every single time I play I lose. And every time I amass great armies and am then beaten my the two little guys holding down the fort. EVERY SINGLE TIME. If that is not luck – and bad luck at that – I don’t know what is.

45. What is the worst injury you’ve ever had?
I’m actually really lucky with injuries. I’ve never sustained anything more serious than slight abrasions. Really, the worst injuries I’ve had are probably from elective oral surgeries (by which I mean the 10 teeth I’ve had pulled at various times.)

If you expand the question to include illnesses, then the answer would be Scarlet Fever. I had that when I was five and all I remember is telling my father about how my skin itched, a vague memory of being allowed to spend the day in my parents bed, and then building The Emerald City out of construction paper with my father when I was well enough to sit up outside but not well enough to go back to school (well probably camp) yet.

56. In a relationship?
I am not. I am the shyest person you could ever hope to meet (and shy in that way that comes off as terribly aloof and proud instead of in the way that makes people want to take care of you) which is not a terribly good fault to have when meeting people. I also have a difficult time expressing interest in anything. I mean I have to psych myself up to wear fandom related shirts (even though I love and keep buying them) because then someone walking by might know that I like Doctor Who or Jane Eyre: the musical, or what ever else the shirt says. That quirk doesn't really help with the getting past meeting stage. I really should figure this out sometime -- and you know -- soonish.
