Sign: "Dangerous Curves Ahead." (Or if you want my sun sign, I'm a Sagittarius... though the description doesn't really fit and I should've been born a few days earlier and been a Scorpio.)
Strong points: I'm relatively intelligent, I've got a good sense of humour and a sarcastic wit, I'm an individual, I'm quite creative (except when it comes to writing stories), and I've apparently got enough charisma that people tend to like me. I'm pretty good at setting goals and have a lot of drive if I'm in a good mood. I'm pretty spontaneous.
Weak Points: I've got a tendency to be insecure about myself. I've got a really bad temper sometimes and I'm not above revenge. I tend to get withdrawn and broody if I'm upset. I've got a bit of an addictive personality.
Hobbies/Interests: Fashion design and making my own clothes, art, walking/jogging, listening to music, watching TV and movies, surfing the Internet, playing computer games
Describe your personality: Er... it's pretty much outlined above, at least the highs and lows are, which really are the most interesting parts about a person. When I'm good I'm funny and sarcastic and creative. When I'm bad I'm either going off at someone or something or withdrawn. I get addicted to things pretty easily, for better or worse. I'm good at setting goals for myself, but am also quite spontaneous. I'm not a terribly organized person outside of work.
Five positive words about yourself: Creative, unique, sarcastic, intelligent, spontaneous
Five negative words about yourself: Tempermental, insecure, brooding, reckless, prone to addiction

Television show: Survivor, House, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Spongebob Squarepants
Artists/bands: Sarah McLachlan, Smashing Pumpkins, U2, Nirvana, Melissa Etheridge... and way too many others to name
Songs: Too many to list. Current favourite is "The Story" by Brandi Carlile, though.
Quote:(non-potc!) "For in that sleep of death, what dreams may come..." from Hamlet. It's what I plan on having as my epitaph, actually.
Place to be: In my bed, asleep. Kind of goes with the above quote. I have a tendency to have some amazing dreams, and I look forward to going to sleep because of them. (Which explains my epitaph.)
Dislikes: Onions, mayonnaise, backstabbers, the colour beige, wristwatches, sleeping in socks, taking showers instead of baths, most disco and a lot of rap, incredibly stupid people.
BOLD your choice.
Lazy/hard working? Actually a bit in the middle on this one, so I can't give a straight answer. Depends on what I'd be working for... if I'm working towards a goal I'm hard working, but if it's a "hard work is its own reward" thing, well bugger that, I'm going to be lazy.
Easy to get along with/Difficult to get along with? (Well, unless you piss me off; I've got a bit of a short fuse sometimes.)
Sneaky/Honest? (Figuring you mean "honest" as in following the rules, not as in always telling the truth. I'll tell you the truth but I'm not necessarily one for rules.)
Leader/Follower? ('Though I prefer going my own way to either one.)
Organized/All over the place?
Religious/Non-believer? Kind of in the middle. The whole either/or thing is way too extreme. I beleive in a higher power, but I'm not all Churchy McWorship about it.
You’ve been marooned. How are you feeling towards those who were responsible for it?
Pretty damn pissed off, and I'm probably thinking that they should wish I -stay- there. Unless I'm a contestant on Survivor, in which case I probably asked for it. But since it's not likely to be Survivor, I'd be spending a bit of time thinking about what I'd like to do to them when I make it back...
Luckily, you happen to have five items with you. What are they? Why?
First of all, a machete or some other big knife/sword. Probably one of the most useful things to have, since you can use it to cut down vines and trees to build a makeshift shelter, you can use it to clear a path, you can use it for self-defense should there be any unfriendly natives around, etc. Plus if it's shiny enough, you can use it to reflect the sun and maybe try and signal someone.
Second, a flint. This used with the aforementioned knife or machete will help make fire, and fire's important for a lot of things... keeping warm, boiling water to kill the nasties, and if big enough can also be used as a signal.
Third, some fish hooks. Useful for catching something to eat so I don't starve to death.
Fourth, some sort of string or twine. Can be used with the fish hooks, or can be used to lash trees or branches together for shelter (or building a raft).
Fifth, a big bottle of rum or some other alcoholic beverage. No, this isn't just to drink. Alcohol would be useful in feeding the fire. (And yes, some of it would be to drink.)
Hopefully you can use them to survive. How will you accomplish getting off/surviving?
Well, first of all I'd build a fire. I'd gather up whatever on the island would burn well (wood, coconut husk, whatever) and use the machete and flint to make fire. As I said before, fire's pretty much essential. I'd explore and see what resources I had and where might be the best place to try and signal for help... I'd probably use multiple ways of signalling: the fire, building "S.O.S." in the sand (hell knowing me I'd make a big old flaming SOS), use the machete to try and signal with light, whatever I could think of. I'd build some sort of a lean-to type shelter for overnight. I'd look for any fruit I knew to be edible and non-poisonous, and I'd try and catch some fish or crabs or whatever other sort of seafood I could. And I'd do this either until someone saw the SOS or I decided to bloody well give up on the SOS and try and build myself a raft.
A quote/lyric…ect, that you feel fits your outlook on life.
"You see the smile that's on my mouth
It's hiding the words that don't come out
And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
They don't know my head is a mess" -from "The Story" by Brandi Carlile
I'm not terribly good at expressing myself, and I tend to cover it with smiles and laughter and jokes, but inside I'm not the world's happiest person.
A quote/lyric…ect, that fits your outlook on love.
"This may sound a little rough/Don't want to fall in love" -from "Don't Want To Fall In Love" by Green Day. Basically, I'm just fine with being single and have no intention to change that any time in the near future.
Lastly and most importantly…explain to us….
Why is the rum gone? Well, you see... I got thirsty, and so I drank it. Tasted really good, too.
Does it matter what you are stamped as? Boy? Girl? Beastie? Nah. I'm not really particular. Besides, if I wanted to stick with my own gender and species, that sort of limits the selection a bit.
Show off! Give us at least two clear pictures of yourself, or if you’d rather not - a detailed description of your appearance.
As the recent pics I have are either blurry or make me look like some weird drag queen, you get a description. I'm about average height, on the thin side, hair's currently white-blonde, layered, and just past my shoulders. I've got really pale skin, kind of deep-set murky grey-brown-green eyes, a big hooked nose, thin lips, a somewhat prominent and pointed jaw line, and highish cheekbones. I have narrow hands with long fingers, kind of a rectangular build with a short waist and long legs, and I probably think I'm more unfortunate-looking than I am. I wear trousers more often than skirts and I love striped clothing. My colour is anything but beige.
