"Anybody want a peanut?"

Posted by miss_izzles on 2008.01.05 at 18:50
Current Music: On Fire - Switchfoot
1. Name: Isla (pronounced iy-la)
2. Nicknames: Izzles, Iz-Iz
3. Age: 17
4. Birthday: 15 December
5. Describe yourself positively in three words: Logical, Compassionate, Positive
6. Describe yourself negatively in three words: Perfectionist, Cynical, Procrastinator
7. Strengths/Skills/Talents: I'm a pretty optimistic person. And I have morals, which in this day and age is getting rarer. I'm a maths geek - and do lots of competitions. I play golf and badminton. I'm a hopeless romantic - it makes me happy so I count as a good thing! I'm a "good" teenager I guess - I don't smoke, do drugs, sleep around or have an ASBO. I'm a good listener, and I always try to help other people.
8. Weaknesses: I also have to put the fact that I'm a Hopeless Romantic as a weakness. I put things off til the very last minute. I can be naive when it comes to being street smart. I'm a patient person, but when I do get worked up over something I get really worked up!

9. Food:
Pretty much anything banned from the Atkins Diet.
10. Actor/Actress: Edward Norton, Hugh Jackman, Torri Higginson, Anna Friel, Helena Bonham-Carter,
11. Three Movies (that are not The Princess Bride): North&South (miniseries), The Mummy, The Notebook,
12. Three Books (that are not The Princess Bride): Persuasion by Jane Austen, Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern, Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy (series) by Douglas Adams.
13. Season: Scotland really only has one season - the one of rain. SUMMER!
14. Place: The public estate gardens near my house. It's so unspoilt and peaceful. I go running, study and walk the dogs there.
15. Song: It's very changable, but at the moment it's "Stolen" by Dashboard Confessional
16. Princess Bride Quote: There are so many! "Death cannot stop true love. All it can do is delay it for a while." Because I am a hopeless romantic, and I like to believe that. Buttercup&Westley forever and ever! ^____^ A close second is "This is true love - you think this happens every day?"
17. Favourite PB scene (book or movie): The fight scene between "The Man In Black" and Inigo
18. Who is your favourite Princess Bride Character and why? Westley - he's the romantic hero, and he's witty, intelligent and determined.
19. Who is your least favourite character and why? At some points Buttercup really annoys me. She just seems so... blah.
20. Which character from another book/movie/play/etc. do you most identify with, and why? Oh tough one. I'll say Maggie from Marian Keyes' Angels. Because she is normal, does everything right by everyone else, really just wants the simple things in life, and has a crazy family!

Do you prefer. . .
21. Vegetables or Fruits?
Fruit - I love fruit!
22. Weapons or Wits? Wits
23. Words or Actions? Words generally, but I suppose it depends on the scenario
24. Flowers or Chocolates? Eh... flowers actually!
25. Walking or Running? Walking
26. Singing or Dancing? One often leads to the other, but dancing.

27. Give us a non-Princess-Bride quote: "Historians are gossips who tease the dead." As a history student, I agree completely.
28. Tell us how much you love us (points if you get creative): I love you this much! *stretches arms apart and grins*
29. Anything else you'd like to tell us? Erm... don't think so.
30. Please post at least two clear pictures of yourself.

Westley, mostly based on your answers to #'s 5-8. I saw a little Buttercup too, but you seem too, I don't know...smart to be her. ;) The fact that you claim to be both cynical and a hopeless romantic especially says Westley to me.

but you seem too, I don't know...smart to be her. ;) LOL, thank you! ^___^

Westley is also my verdict. I was originally going with Buttercup, but seeing as she seems to piss you off, you are smarter than she is, and you seem far more complex, I'd have to go with Westley.
However, I'm not sure he's quite as "good" a person as you are. He would help other people, but he can be badly behaved.

I don't know what it is about Buttercup, but she does irritate me. Thank you for your analysis, I quite like to think I'm like Westley :P

I'm agreeing on Westley</>. But I disagree with altosrluv, Westley to me seemed like a caring person and sympathetic to others causes. Even if he was a little naughty. :) But anyway, I agreed with the above voters because they made good points about your application, even though I probably wouldn't have voted Buttercup anyway.

I also see Westley.
