Three words that describe you
Overwhelmingly strange, incredibly wondrous; Wild ideas beyond heavens rounded up; Quick delivery, No graffiti*
* 奇妙奇天烈摩訶不思議、奇想天外四捨五入、出前迅速落書き無用 - this is an original answer, written by Jojo as one line - it's part of lyrics for a song from a popular Japanese anime series Doraemon; the translation is only very rough since it's very difficult to transform it properly into English without the song context, and because basically it's only a string of nouns

Favorite phrase

Strong points / strengths

Weak points / weaknesses
Being passive

Piercing count
Right ear- 7, left ear- 9, eyebrow- 1, nose-1, mouth- 1, tongue- 1, nipple- 2, navel- 1
