Jedi's Survey!

I did this really interesting survey which I saw in Cleopatra's blog!! Some Jedi wants to find out how many Star Wars fans there are on Planet Earth... so he used a Jedi mind trick and made someone create this quiz! But he had to be subtle about it so there are loads of other questions
too! :D
1. If you have pets, do you see them are merely animals or are they members of your family?
I don't have a pet as of now, but I can say without doubt that they will be a members of my family. I've already chosen names- Bubba for my dog and Cello for my cat. I don't have pets at the moment because my parents will never agree. I also not yet committed to the fact that I'll have to feed them meat (duhh obviously!). I still have to wrap my head around that. I'm scared of my friends' pets when I first see them but by the time I have to leave, I'm all over them, refusing to leave and smothering them with hugs! My friends' pets are the reason why I soooo want a pet. I've seen with my own eyes the love that man and animal share and there is incredible peace in that love. So I'm waiting for the day when I'll have my own two furry friends.

2. If you can have a dream to come true, what would it be?
Go on a road trip, explore the country, see for myself how the locals really live (without any dicovery channel type hype), spend the nights under the stars! And a drunken skinny-dipping thrown in for good measure!

3. What is the one thing most hated by you?

I absolutely hate people who spit in public places. Civic sense, basic hygiene, IQ... you lack it all morons! And you also get the maximum rating on my gross-o-meter.

4. What would you do with a billion dollars?
Fulfil all my 'when I have the money' dreams... get my parents whatever they want, go to Paris for fashion week, sky-dive(!), go see my friends, give to child education and cancer research... I have a LOT of 'when I have the money' dreams!

5. What helps to pull you out of a bad mood?

Music or chick-lit novels. When I'm really pissed off, nothing works better than to just immerse myself in a totally different world... music or books work wonders. Sometimes I get out of the house and walk. Just keep walking in no particular till I cool off. That's also awesome- seeing people on the streets, buses, cars makes me forget what got me so angry or depressed in the first place.

6. Which is more blessed, loving someone or being loved by someone?

I really remember the times when I used to be soooo in love. When I was away from the guy I used to analyse and was 100% sure there's nothing in it, he's not my type, he's totally wrong etc etc and then when I saw him bam! All that would go right out of the window and I was so blissfully happy to be in his company. That happiness, that buoyant feeling, it's present when you love someone- be it a guy you like or your friends or your family. There is something to look forward to- to see someone, to do something to make them smile. Even waiting is sweeter when it's for someone you love. So I feel loving somebody is more blessed.

7. What is your bedtime routine?

If I'm not sleepy, I try to sneak a book and the mobile phone (for light) under the sheets. Or else mom's phone with the headphones to listen to the radio. Brush my teeth and go to the loo. Mom has a habit of putting a tikka on my forehead before bed and I think that's really sweet...

8. If you are currently in a relationship, how did you meet your partner?
I'm not in a relationship now..and I've never been. After years of crushing on boys and thinking several were cute at the same time and being accused of being boy-crazy... I've finally left those days behind. Currently I don't even have a crush on anybody and believe me, it feels like an achievement when I look back! Sweet success, and I'm so happy being the way I am right now!
9. If you could watch a creative person in the act of the creative process, who would it be?
Ohh my God... there are soooooo many creative processes that I would like to witness. An artist making a painting, a musician writing lyrics and creating a tune, a designer making clothes, authors writing... I cannot choose. I would want to watch everything! :(. And if I absolutely HAVE to choose one I would probably want to see a musician create a tune. Because that's one thing that totally stumps me- I just don't know HOW it works, how it happens.
10. What kind of books do you read?
I love fantasy, science fiction and chick-lit. They are perfect for unwinding after a long day. I don't have any particular choice as far as books go... I've never left a book unfinished. I read whatever books come into my hands. But I like those fiction books which center around a real event or place. Like Dan Brown and James Rollins' books. I think that style of writing is going to be around for some time.
11. What's your fear?
That I may not be able to live an independent life. That I might have to give up my dreams and my wishes for someone else.
12. Would you give up all junk food for the rest of your life for an opportunity to visit outer space?
I really want to give up junk food because I no longer remember the time when I was stick-thin (and I was!). And I'm a huuuuuuge Star Wars fan so if there's a chance that I might be able to find out that galaxy I'm in!! And also going to outer space will give a chance to wear the most outrageous costumes ever and not feel awkward about it! Where's the rocket baby?!
13. Would you rather be single and rich or married and poor?
Single and rich for sure. Spread the happiness alone, rather than sharing unhappiness with someone. Being poor may not be THE reson for unhappiness but it sure as hell increases it.
14. What's the first thing you do when you wake up?
Pull my blanket tighter and try to catch a few more winks. :). And when that fails I get up and hug my mom.
15. If you could change one thing about your partner/spouse, what would it be?
Not Applicable.
16. If you could pick up a new name, what would it be?
I like my name and I like my pet name Sv even more! :) And honestly I won't be able to get used to a new name if I tried! But my rockstar name is Ashley... decided at a time when I was tripping bad over Ashley from Gone with the Wind! So it would be Ashley!
17. Would you forgive and forget no matter how horrible a thing that someone special has done?
No way. If something is unacceptable to me, it does'nt matter that the person who did was a stranger or 'that special somone'. I might forget about it for a while, but to totally forgive him... I don't think so.
18. If you could only eat one thing for the next 6 months, what would it be?
Tomatoes? I say it because I know its one thing that won't make me want to kill myself if I see it day after day. I louuurve tomatoes to death. Other options like Cheese burst pizza, those chinese starter things and manchurian... I know however much I like it, if I see continuously for 3 days it will make me weep. And I'll probably be stick-thin if I get tomatoes for 6 months!
