Starting from the first ones I could find... though I may wind up ganking earlier ones from my friend's LJ... For the month of August:
Jumped the shark
Which television show continues to get worse every season and should just get cancelled already?
I don't really watch much television. The stuff that I do watch, I do enjoy, and I hope they continue for many seasons. Just FYI: most of what I watch is on the Science Channel. I happily admit my love for that channel.
A literary masterpieceWhich books will you certainly read to your children, nieces, nephews or godchildren?
I have no intention of having children, and since this question assumes as such or that I am someone who will have nieces, nephews, or godchildren, it's a bit offensive. That said, if I do wind up reading to nieces, nephews or godchildren, I will be reading them passages from Don Quixote, The Divine Comedy, or parts of my manga collection.
A stroll down memory laneWould you rather lose all of your old memories, or never be able to make new ones?
Sheesh, again with the assumptions.... I'd rather be rid of my old memories, since there's stuff in the past that has really messed me up. Being unable to make new memories would suck hardcore.
Scary movieWhat is the scariest horror flick you’ve seen?
Why do they assume that all of LJ watches horror flicks? I laughed at some of (okay, most) the stuff in the Puppet Master saga, since it was so bad. In fact, it was so bad, it was good. Scariest flick I've seen was Blood: The Last Vampire.
You’re giving me a toothacheWhat is the nicest thing anyone has ever said to you?
"I like writing with you."
Once upon a time…What is the first line of your favorite book?
Assuming that everyone has a favorite book.... Faaaaail, Livejournal. Fail. I do have a favorite book though. From Don Quixote: "Idle reader: thou mayest believe me without any oath that I would this book, as it is the child of my brain, were the fairest, gayest, and cleverest that could be imagined."
All by myselfWhat’s one thing that you love to do all by yourself?
Again with the assumptions... Not everyone likes to spend time alone... I do, and when I do, I usually knit, draw, read, listen to music, or browse the 'net.
It’s Women’s Equality Day!Do you think women are treated as equals? What changes would you like to see?
*sigh* Assuming.... I'm not touching this one.
You’re perfect, now changeWould you change anything about your significant other? What would it be?
Another one I'm not touching, if only 'cause of the assumptions.
The state of perceptionOf the five senses (sight, sound, touch, smell and taste), which would you willing to give up, and why?
Sheesh. What is with all the assumptions? Not everyone wants to give up a sense..... Case in point being me. Even with all the unpleasant crap in the world, sensory-wise, I wouldn't give up any of my senses. There's way too many pleasing sensory experiences that I wouldn't want to miss out on.
Everybody hurtsHave you or a friend ever been bullied? How did you get through it?
Assumptions.... *sigh* I have been bullied off and on over the years. At the time, I didn't handle it well, but as I've gotten older, I've realized how stupid it was to get upset over temporary issues. I'm working on the "You are not even worth acknowledging." Look for when I do get bullied in the future, and I've gotten quite good at it.
Sweet toothWhat is your favorite candy or dessert?
*sigh* Apparently, August was the month of assumptions. That being said, I really like lemon-flavored desserts.
