I think I've watched the pilot ep of The Sopranos, and maybe not even that all the way.

I don't think a *random* stranger could guess where I was from based on appearance, but someone who shares my heritage would be pretty likely to, actually, as I would with them.

Icelandic and the Rubik's cube thing are both thempting, and I wouldn't mind learning to make balloon animals either, though I doubt I have the gift for it. I was able to do a Rubik's Cube pretty quickly at some point, and I'm good with languages, so those two things would be easier, probably.

I don't order stuff at Starbucks very often, and when I do, it's usually a Frappucino or a chai latte (which I suppose can be counted under "tea"?), but occasionally I've had other things there, or would consider doing so.

Gah. The grown-up questions I had a hard time with because, as we've discussed before, I feel like I'm barely making it living paycheck to paycheck. And I'm also not on a career path at the moment, either. So no grown-up points there. It's actually a struggle to see myself as an adult, which kind of affects my whole self-image. But I guess it counts that I'm not living under my parents' roof?

I really love how Icelandic is a hit XD

Same as Anna re: nationality question, anyone from post-soviet space might with a chance of 50/50 assume I have southern/Caucasian roots (not the race, the um, region). People from the Middle-east have expressed similar thoughts, though it's more of a stretch. I don't think that registers for Western Europeans or Americans that don't have any similar heritage -- or not in my experience.

Also on the subject of marriage equality and ensuing shenanigans, this is v on point.

The Sopranos! I was thinking I should do a re-watch.

In my mind, it's fairly easy to guess what my heritage is (Indian), but I've been mistaken for various backgrounds--Moroccan, Egyptian, from a (undetermined) Spanish speaking background... I've had Indians ask if I'm Indian. On the other hand, I only need to open my mouth for anyone to know I'm American.

Being an adult is overrated.
