classicalzawa presents: a very special 1113th post
Basically just a celebration of reaching my 1113th post, I'm reposting about myself (because some people have been kinda wrong about me I suppose and it's been almost a year and a half since I joined, I know I'm not the only one who did this, probably just the only one to do it on their 1113th post instead of something normal like 1000).

Name: I have several. CJ is one of them, oddly close to CZ if you initial my name on here Razz
Age: 20
Sex: Female (people have been calling me "he" for over 6 months now, but it seemed like a silly thing to correct on the internet, at least to me, so I never said anything)
Blood type: A- (far as I know)
Hair & eye Color: Orange hair, heterochromatic eyes (brown inside, green outside)
Marital Status: single
Ethnicity: white.
likes: smart people, juggling, gaming, anime, my cat, biology, spiders, pictures of people failing and photobombs
dislikes: the taste of red meat, people who hit on me, the sound of nail files
favorite anime: Princess Tutu, Gurren Lagann, Robotech, Metropolis, Fantastic Children, Cromartie High School
favorite manga: Maison Ikkoku, Banana Fish, Please Save My Earth, Parasyte, Cromartie High School
favorite non-anime shows and movies: Firefly, Super Size Me, Invader Zim, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Ice Road Truckers, Verminators, Reboot
favorite books: Animal Farm, Freakonomics, The Zombie Survival Guide, Parasite Rex (not big on reading books honestly)
favorite games: Klonoa, God of War series, Pokemon series, Tales of Legendia, Persona 3 FES, Monkey island series, Patapon, Phoenix Wright series, Bully, Crush, killer7, Zelda series (for the most part), Roller Coaster Tycoon 1 & 2 (not 3)
favorite spot (to play and watch): juggling
favorite food and drink: cherries, tomatoes, ice cold water, most fruit, tamago sushi
favorite music: classical music (a lot of it, but never Gershwin, never), techno, electronica, game and anime soundtracks
lucky number(s): 22, 113 (hence why this post as opposed to the last or the next one)
interesting info:
-can juggle 4 balls at a time (working my way up to 5, needless to say, I have superb hand eye coordination)
-can solve a Rubik's Cube in less than 1:30 (getting better at solving the 4x4x4 ones too)
-I can pass for a 15-16 year old if I want to and I do so whenever it is convenient for me (and am often mistaken as being 16)
-I've gotten a sunburn while wearing SPF 60, I am just that pale.
-I am highly allergic to mosquito bites, I've got scars from them all over my arms
-Is and forever will be on the side of the pirates in the great pirates vs ninjas debate

Lots of interesting information there, classicalzawa. I myself dislike tomatoes, cannot juggle, and have yet to wear anything above 30 SPF. Then again, I seldom need any of the stuff.
As for mosquitoes, they tend not to like me, but other insects do. (Particularly bees, who have a tendency to mistake my ears for nourishing blooms.)

Well...I think I'm back. At least for now.

I suppose reintroductions are at least in order. So...

Name: It's on the site. The clever will find it, the not-so-clever...won't.
Gender: Bending.
Marital Status: Nonexistent.
Ethnicity: Suffice it to say, I can't jump.
Religious Affiliation: Loopy Pagan Tree Hugger.
Drinks / Smokes: Yes and yes, trying to quit on the latter.

The Favorites...

Animu: Haibane Renmei, Boogiepop Phantom, Gankutsuou, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Cromartie High, Twelve Kingdoms, Maria-sama ga Miteru, Kara no Kyoukai.
Mangoes: Monster, Cromartie High, Hellsing, Strawberry Panic, what woefully little I've read of xxxHolic.
Books, Comics, & Japanese Light Novels: Transmetropolitan, Twelve Kingdoms, Boogiepop, The Great Gatsby, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, Watchmen, Jane Eyre, The Silmarillion, Evolution: What the Fossils Say and Why It Matters.
Films: Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, The Godfather Trilogy, Snatch, Lord of the Rings, Iron Man, Gojira, Silence of the Lambs, Clerks, generally anything with Akira Kurosawa and/or Toshiro Mifune attached to it.
Television: Futurama, Metalocalypse, Robot Chicken, Frisky Dingo, Scrubs, House, Stargate SG-1, Star Trek: TNG, Venture Brothers...I'd probably be into a lot of the big, popular serialized shows if I could keep up with them, but I tend to lack the talent for that.
Games: Metal Gear Solid, Shadow of the Colossus, Grand Theft Auto 4, Mass Effect, Knights of the Old Republic, Jade Empire, Half-Life 2...used to be WoW, but I kicked that habit.
Music: Industrial, 80s goth & new wave, neo-folk, dark cabaret, an extremely narrow and peculiar range of metal that likely includes nothing anyone here would be familiar with.
Food & Drink: Irrelevant.

Fun Facts:
-All the stereotypes about trying to find a job with an art degree are true. Also, scratching around on the bottom rung of society sucks. So all you art majors out there? Flee! Flee, and run to the nearest real major as fast as you can!
-Yeah, I'm actually just now getting back into the whole anime funtimes thing, so coming back and seeing what's risen up to replace all the Haruhis and Eureka Sevens that were all the rage when I last paid attention is a bit...odd. How'd that whole "moe" thing turn out, anyhow?
-Those of you who remember me will probably remember that I was a crazy Gundam fan, right? Yeah, about that...kinda not so much these days. Oh, there were some good titles mixed around in there, but the franchise as a whole? Yeah, yikes, no (especially the Tomino parts...double yikes, double no).

Favorite Books: It's mainly favourite authors - Mishima Yukio, the Marquis De Sade, Franz Kafka, Albert Camus, Sadegh Hedayat, Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare, Philip Marlowe, Leo Tolstoi, Vladimir Nabokov, Antoine De Saint-Exupery, and many, many more. They all achieved, what I consider, artistic perfection in the sense that their work is perfect from first to last tome.

Hobbies: Movies, music, and books. I own about 800 dvds and 200 videocassettes, and watch about 150-200 movies per year. I have approximately 2000 music albums and compilations. Books? Not so many (maybe 300 or so). I also like to check out the local museums, attend gallery openings, go to a few concerts and plays a year. I also enjoy clothes and shoe shopping; it's not out of place for me to own 30 belts and 20 pairs of shoes.

Favorite Quotes: "Have a good time... all the time" - Spinal Tap

No, no! You really can find jobs in the art field, you just have to be creative and nontraditional... Anime catgrin + sweatdrop
