It is Wednesday the 22nd of April which is also the day Isabella I of Castile was born in 1451 and later became one of the most important sovereigns of the world establishing the Spanish Inquisition and sponsoring Christopher Columbus’ journey which led to the discovery of America.
America is also where today’s participant of TwitLight who goes by@SirenAssassin comes from. I first met her on a forum over a year ago and she then joined Twitter with several other posters from there. @Pogre, you should twitter again, btw!
At this point I want to say how she’s very nice, helpful and often said the right thing at the right minute when I needed it, but no matter how I phrase it, it comes across sounding a bit tacky. So just trust me on this!
Read all about @SirenAssassin!
1. Where are you from?
My mother of course! In all seriousness, I am from a very small town in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by the beautiful mountains in Pennsylvania.
2. How old are you?
I am 24.
3. What do you do for a living?
I was recently laid off, but my profession is in Administration doing accounting and other office crap. It’s really not interesting at all. Now I am a stay at mommy to my soon to be three year old little boy and I would not have it any other way.
4. What does your alias/nickname mean and how did you come up with it?
Siren Assassin…..let me see. I like the stories about Sirens from Greek mythology.
I also love the classic vargas girl pinups who were considered “Sirens”. Assassin came from me playing video games and that I am the annoying one either sniping you repeatedly or knifing you in the back. And I chose Assassin from Hitman 2: Silent Assassin which is one of my all time favorite games.
5. What do you want to be when you grow up and has that changed at all since you were little?
When I grow up, I just want to be happy. When I was little I dreamed of being a veterinarian or a pediatrician, how original I know! Now that I am bit older and been through different experiences, all that matters to me is being happy in the end. After all, I do not want to be one of those people who grow old and all they have is their career.
6. What song are you thinking about right now?
I am thinking about a song made famous by the movie Twilight. It is called “River Flows Into You” composed by Yiruma. It is such a beautiful piece of music and after listening to it for all of these months, it is still on my top ten playlist on my iPod.
7. Do you have a Last.fm profile?
What is this Last.fm that you speak of? [Note: It tracks your music listening stats, this is mine]
8. What are you reading at the moment? [Book, magazine, website, Wikipedia article..]
Nothing at the moment. I recently read Marley and Me, Eclipse, and this book that is composed of letters from soldiers from different wars and I cannot remember for the life of me what it is called.
9. Which video game are you playing these days and is it as good as you thought it would be? [provided you play video games that is!]
Of course I play video games! I have been mainly playing Resident Evil 5, with an occasional Halo Wars and Fallout 3 thrown in there. Resident Evil 5 was a disappointment to me mainly because it’s not a survival horror game, just a shoot em up in my opinion, but as a faithful fan I continue to play.
10. What is the weather like at the moment?
Stormy…..which is crazy because it’s not even that warm out. I think the high today was around 60 and by the afternoon there were thunderstorms, hail, and reports of tornadoes.
11. What are your plans for the rest of the day?
Considering that it is almost midnight, I will say heading to bed.
12. If you could replace anyone in any TV show, who would you pick?
I would like to go back a few years and replace Sarah Michelle Gellar or I should say Sarah Michelle Prinze as Buffy on Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Don’t get me wrong, she is my favorite actress and I believe she can pull of any role that is tossed her way, but I would just love to play a strong, kick ass female character like Buffy.
13. If you had the chance to work on the Enterprise [Star Trek ship!], what job would you have?
I do not think they would want me on the Enterprise. I am an accident waiting to happen and I guarantee you that Capt. Archer would kick me right off that ship just because of my awesome powers of blondeness and the ability to cause others to suffer from severe cases of blondeness. It is contagious and worse then any STD known to man.
14. Seeing that I’m a grumpy person in the morning I’ve realised I can’t live with people that are overly happy as soon as they wake up. Would you be a good flatmate?
I do not really care for mornings myself, but after having my son and going through the whole “being up all night” routine that comes with parenthood, I have adapted. Doesn’t mean I am a ray of sunshine in the morning though, so don’t go pushing my buttons. Besides that I am clean freak and do not like my stuff messed with. So to answer that question, probably not.
15. What is the best website you’ve come across recently?
It is a website called, Quoteland. It features quotes from famous people, people throughout history, and anons.
16. How long have you been on Twitter for and when did you realise you were sucked in by it?
I have been on Twitter for a bit now. I discovered I was sucked in one day when I kept refreshing the page. Sad I know.
17. Settle this question for me: PC or Mac?
Oh crud. I am not one for techy stuff or computers, but I will say PC because my brother from another mother will probably kick my butt if I don’t.
18. And another one: ice cream or cake?
Ice cream. The cake is a lie……
19. Fill this out however you want: “Today I am ____ and I ____, but ____, because ____.”
Today I am happy and I like cheese, but it has to be cheese with holes in it, because it is the only kind I can eat by itself.
20. What do you want everyone to know about you, who are you, what makes you tick? [aka describe yourself]
I am one of the smartest blondes you will ever come across. Seriously, I received my Trig and Geometry credits in two weeks. I tend to be a bit too sarcastic, but if people cannot handle it that is not my problem. With me it is straight up “what you see is what you get,”. I blame a lot of that on life’s experiences and being in the Army. Those things can make a person grow up mighty fast and realize what really matters in life.
What really makes me tick is photography. There is something about being behind a camera and capturing moments in time and decisions that led to a certain moment that really gets me going. I could be having the worse day ever and I can pick up my camera and all of that goes right out the window.
21. What is the last thing that you’ve felt proud about?
Standing up for myself. You can only let people walk all over you for a certain amount of time before those footprints start to do some damage.
22. If I wanted to stalk you on the internet where would I have to go?
You can stalk me at my photography website. The photography ranges from Landscapes, Self Portraits, Nature, Children, Emotive, Animals, etc….
You can also find me at deviantArt.
If you want to stalk me over online gaming you can send a FR to Siren Assassin on Xbox Live. I cannot guarantee I will accept it, because my friend list is almost full. Plus if you plan on sending me random messages, please do not even bother. It’s a waste of your time.
Finally you can follow my random, insane, and somewhat blonde tweets on Twitter.
23. Any more comments?
I would like to say thank you to the lovely carocat for allowing me to be a part of this. If you are not following her on twitter or checked out her blog you need to go do that right now. As for my final words, I think I will end this on a quote:
“Your story is already written. You are just living it….”.
Aww, thank you! :)
