lunadelcorvo: (Medieval Facepalm)
LJ's Writer's block: What's the weirdest question you've ever been asked?"

"Is it true you sacrifice goats?"

No lie, seriously. In high school somehow people got the idea I was some kind of devil worshipper. (Honestly, one little game of assassin, and people jump to all kinds of conclusions!) It was amusing at first, but it got old fast. So eventually some little bimbo (you know, poofy, floofy, squealing type) caught me on a rather bad day, so I glared at her and snarled "Only when I can't find a VIRGIN!!" She literally did a 'Home Alone' and ran away as fast as her pooky little pink sneakers would carry her. That may have been my first, genuine, audible, leave-a-red-mark facepalm. Sure, it's funny now, but the principal was not amused (though he totally understood my frustration...). On the upside, they left me alone after that....

Things I need to remember:
• Asking for help is not, as it turns out, fatal.
• Laughing is easier than pulling your hair out, and doesn't have the unfortunate side effect of making you look like a plague victim.
• Even the biggest tasks can be defeated if taken a bit at a time.
• I can write a paper the night before it's due, but the results are not all they could be.
• Be thorough, but focused.
• Trust yourself.
• Honesty, always.
