Ask Silhouette Anything!

Hey everyone! I joined fairly recently and I'm loving my time here! I saw these around, so I thought I'd better put one up for my 100th post as these threads seem like fun.

So feel free to ask me literally anything! Random, silly, serious/existential—pretty much anything goes, and I'll answer to the best of my ability!

I've had good experiences with both, but probably dogs (even though I'm allergic to both). They're so friendly and lovable it's hard not to like a dog.

Favourite poem? Do you like poetry?

I actually really like poetry, and I'm a bit of a poet myself. My favorite... hmm, that's hard. It's kind of unoriginal, but I love "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost. It's really thought provoking and I think about it every once in a while.

If you could speak one other language, what would it be?

I've been taking Spanish in school, and I'm definitely not bad, so I'd probably choose a different language to get variety. It would be nice to know Korean, Japanese or Chinese. My dad and my best friend speak Korean and my friend has been giving me a few lessons, so that would be really cool to learn.

Calvin's duplicate cracks me up. That whole sequence is brilliant, culminating in the duplicate's untimely end with a moral compromise spectral release phantasmatron. Hilarious!

I like TPBM. It's fun to learn more about the people who are around the forums at different times.

If we're talking lesser spren, probably either laughterspren (cause I like to laugh), logicspren (cause I like to think), or musicspren (cause I like music). For True Spren, I'd probably be a Cultivationspren because I really like improving myself and I set weekly and monthly goals.

I think I would last about 8 months. Long enough to find someone worthy enough, yet long enough that the guilt would begin to crush me.

I've always been a fan of lemon sherbet. I tried a Key Lime Pie flavor a couple weeks ago that I found particularly delicious.

I'm not really a picky eater, but I'd probably have to go with this really gross sour clam thingy that I had on pizza once. That was disgusting. I don't even know what it was, to be honest :lol:

WOK. It's pretty much as good as it gets

I watched Severance a couple months ago which was very intriguing. I loved Stranger Things, of course. Brilliant show

I LOVE pie. Pretty much any pie, but lemon meringue and key lime are SUBLIME.

"Last words are for idiots who never talked enough! Why, you all--" BOOM.

Okay, but seriously, I have no idea

There's a part of me that wishes someday I could give improv piano concerts and be famous for that.

Hmmm... the house kind? I like a mixture of traditional and contemporary styles, so I'd probably choose one somewhere in the middle (maybe leaning a bit towards traditional)

Most prized possession?

I have a box at the top of my closet with my most prized possessions: cards, notes, and things of sentimental value that I look at when I need my day to be brightened. But my most prized possession is probably my piano

BLUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. My friends always make fun of my monochrome blue outfits

Favorite Song?

The Way Up by Pat Metheny. It's a work of art! It's a 70 minute jazz composition that's beautiful and cool and I think everyone should listen to it at least once. It's been my most listened to song/album the last three years. I have the study score and whenever I fly on the plane I listen to it and follow along and the people next to me always think I'm insane flipping through the music pages like it's an intense branderson novel. :lol:

(Fitting that my 200th post is on my AMA)

Dragons are awesome, and I'd love to fly! But I might choose a unicorn just cause I like horse riding, and they can heal like anything, right? So I could do a lot across the world to help medicine and such. And I could get lots of the excitement thrill-seeking with their strength and speed.

Axehound, they seem kinda cool

Aviar! I've always wanted to have a bird

What is your favorite tree?

In terms of specific trees, my siblings and I built a little hideout in this big tree/bush by pruning branches during the course of our childhood. We made this awesome cave in the tree and then made moss carpet! It was so cool! And when we played hide and seek we would climb to the top. Good memories :)

My favorite tree species is cherry blossom! We had one in our front yard and it was absolutely beautiful ^_^

I'm a fan of sour patch watermelon.

Least favorite food?

I don't know if I really have one. I'm not a picky eater. Though I haven't eaten a peanut butter sandwich since I was like 5 because I was disgusted that time I tried it. I like peanut butter with everything else though. 

On 9/13/2022 at 8:04 PM, SymphonianBookworm said:

I like Elend, Psmith (from Mike & Psmith), Wit, Wayne, Sherlock Holmes, and anyone who has some good wit in them.

I'm afraid I'm already the founder of a nation. As I'm pro-procrastination-nation, I can't support both simultaneously.

Oh that's hard. I'm not really sure. The one in my signature is pretty nice.

I think it was called "the banana cream pie convention" or something, and I went in as a banana. So, we were all in these bananas suits, and they had this big banana split contest with lots of different toppings on it. They gave me the prize because I was the only one who actually tried to get their attention. There were so many other people, and everyone else just sat there eating their bananas without even trying. SMH my head, right?

To get noticed, I jumped up onto this huge ice cream sundae and started yelling about how my banana wasn't getting any love.

I won unopposed.

Bees?

How doth the little busy bee
Improve each shining hour,
And gather honey all the day
From every shining flower!


How skilfully she builds her cell!
How neat she spreads the wax!
And labours hard to store it well
With the sweet food she makes.

—Isaac Watts

 

My friend got stung in the eye once.
