30 questions

I thought I'd do this one since it was less intrusive than most. I copied it from mraltariel, removing four questions (the usual zodiac one and three which were about the surveyor) and adding one to make it a round 30.

1. Can you cook? Yes
2. What was your dream growing up? First I wanted to be a fighter pilot, then an author living by a lake in Europe.
3. What talent do you wish you had? That of being a confident extrovert.
4. Favourite place? Germany. I loved it there and it felt more like home than New Zealand does.
5. Favourite vegetable? Potatoes; they're so versatile and comforting too.
6. What was the last book you read? The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett. I'm now reading Fatherland by Robert Harris.
7. Any tattoos and/or piercings? One of the latter in each ear.
8. Worst habit? Laziness. I'd rather be reading.
9. What is your favourite sport? Cricket.
10. Negative or optimistic attitude? I'm pessimistic about the small, more personal stuff, but stubbornly optimistic about the larger issues. I think one has to be.
11. What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me? Talk about anything and everything to distract myself.
12. Worst thing to ever happen to you? Parents' deaths.
13. Tell me one weird fact about you: I can do the Bewitched twitch. It doesn't work though.
14. Do you have any pets? Four cats. Yes, I'm almost in crazy cat lady territory here.
15. Do you know how to do the macarena? Yes, and I know how to spell it too. Don't worry; I fixed it.
16. What time is it where you are now? 12:34, just after noon.
17. Do you think clowns are cute or scary? Neither, and they aren't that funny either.
18. If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be? I'd like to lose a few adiposes.
19. What colour hair do you have? Reddish brown with blonde streaks.
20. What colour eyes do you have? Brown with green flecks.
21. Ever been arrested? No.
22. Bottle or draft? Draft if they have it. 
23. If you won $10,000 dollars today, what would you do with it? Put it in my bank account and live off it for a while.
24. What kind of gum do you prefer to chew? I don't.
25. What's your favourite bar to hang at? I don't. When I've finished my coffee I usually leave.
26. Do you believe in ghosts? No.
27. Favourite thing to do in your spare time? Read, or lately, knit. They're both very relaxing.
28. Do you swear a lot? More than I'd like.
29. Biggest pet peeve? People who don't spell-check their work, or who chew gum in front of me even while talking. And the fact that selection boxes always put the first item with the letter you typed at the bottom, not the top where it would be useful, so I have to type the next letter to see my user pic keywords properly.
30. In one word, how would you describe yourself? Dreamer.
