I miss somebody right now.  (My girlfriend who has gone home for a couple of months.) I don’t watch much TV these days.  (It’s been shite for years. I’ll probably not watch it at all now Doctor Who has finished) × I own lots of books(I want to own a library. I claim to be literate yet feel shamed of all that I haven’t read. I’m not should I could own enough books.)
I wear glasses or contact lenses.  (Actually I don’t, but I should. I have two pairs of glasses. One is broken in a drawer upstairs and the other pair I left at a mates. Without them I’ve no idea who you are when you wave at me. I’m waving back out of politeness.) I love to play video games.  (Not as much as some people but I find them a great distraction. Notice the word is “play” rather than “win”. It’s all about relaxing.) I’ve tried marijuana.  (Not a huge fan of smoking. Hurts my throat, but I’ve been known to enjoy a brownie or four.)
I’ve watched porn movies.  (Mainly out of curiosity. I don’t get much out of them.) × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship.  (I’ve been the distant scardie flake who said “I don’t think this is working out.” when what i really should have said is “I’m a bit freaked out but I’ll try to get a grip and not fake my own death like I did in my last relationship.”) I believe honesty is usually the best policy.  (…most of the time. Sadly I’ve met many people who don’t respect or appreciate honesty.)
I curse sometimes.  (Selectively.) I have changed a lot mentally over the last year.  (I’ve had to. Otherwise I’d have gone absolutely bonzo.) I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.  (…it’s a small travel razor I keep in my mini overnight bag. I’m not sure that’s what the statement implied though.)

× I have broken someone’s bones. × I have a secret that I am ashamed to reveal.  (guilt rather than shame would make me keep secrets. I’m no stranger to shame. Especially after a few drinks.) × I hate the rain(I adore it. Cleanses the world and my soul. I couldn’t live in a country that didn’t have regular rain and/or drizzle.)
I’m paranoid at times.  (Most of the time, but I’m trying to regulate it… honestly.) × I would get plastic surgery if it were 100% safe, free of cost, and scar-free.  (I dunno. I’d maybe get my nose and teeth fixed but it’s not top priority. My insecurities are all psychological and I’m fairly sure I’d still feel ugly no matter how “beautiful” I was.) I need/want money right now.  (I’m not greedy. I just hate ending up in the situation where I’m choosing between eating well and paying utility bills.)

I’m purposely slow it down when talking to foreigners.) × I have fresh breath in the morning.  (I usually forget to brush my teeth at night due to having no real bedtime routine to speak of. three cups of coffee in the morning don’t help.)
I have long hair.  (…kinda… it’s getting there. I think if I’m going bald I’m going to make the most of it. I’ll draw the line before I become Francis Rossi though.) × I have lost money in Las Vegas. I have at least one sibling.  (1.5 siblings)
I was born in a country outside of the U.S.  (Most people were…) I have worn fake hair/fingernails/eyelashes in the past.  (For a laugh mainly…) × I couldn’t survive without Caller I.D.  (I like Caller I.D. I don’t answer the phone unless I know who’s ringing. It’s not going to kill me to go without though. People can email me instead.)
× I like the way that I look.  (I’m too insecure to like the way I look. Sometimes I look good by fluke. In 5% of photos, I think I’m not too bad.) I have lied to a good friend in the last 6 months.  (I lie most of the time when people ask “How are you?” No-one really expects or wants a negative answer I’ve learnt.)
