Oooh, This Will Be An Interesting Post

I stole this from Amy. It's what I do. I plagiarize things. But I thought it would be fun, so here we go.

What time did you get up this morning?
The unholy hour of 8:00. I am not a morning person.

What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
Taken! I remember it because it was full of awesomeness. And Liam Neeson. 

What is your favourite TV show? 
Ahh, my favorite TV show! It's 24, of course. How do I love thee, 24? Let me count the ways... I could wax lyrical about how awesome Jack Bauer is... and I already have, I suppose.... innumerable times... I guess I'll spare you today.

What is your nickname?
I used to be known as Nerd. Now I am occasionally called E. T., for reasons that I do not fully understand. I am, however, relieved to report that it has nothing to do with my looks. 

What food do you dislike? 
Tomatoes. They are nasty. And horrible. Once I even wrote a story where the villain was a giant tomato. He came to a very gruesome end, as he so richly deserved.

What is your favourite CD at the moment?
Forest, by George Winston. The man is a genius, I tell you. 

What kind of car do you drive?
I don't really drive, actually. I'm learning, though.

Favourite sandwich?
Amy invented a delicious one that had barbecue sauce and Swiss cheese. Yum yum.

What characteristic do you despise?
I have an intense, burning loathing for stupidity.

Favorite item of clothing? 
Do shoes count? Because I have a really awesome pair that's bright green with yellow sunbursts. I'm very attached to those shoes.

What was one of your most memorable birthdays?
Ohh, I don't know. Probably the year I turned 14. My mom and dad had to go to Durango to be trained to own a chocolate store, and I went along to take care of Bobo, who was six months old at the time. It was then that I discovered the joys and wonders of Animal Planet.

What are you going to do when you finish this?
Clean up the kitchen.

Any new and exciting news you'd like to share?
I'm going to be a nanny! Just like Mary Poppins, I am.

What did you want to be when you were little?
I kind of wanted to be a veterinarian.

Who have people said you look like?
Sigh. I don't look like famous people.

Do you wish on stars?
No. I do, however, wish on birthday candles. I never know if my wishes come true, though, because I forget them with astonishing rapidity.

How many traffic tickets have you had?
None! Because I am perfect. Also I don't drive.
If you were a crayon, what colour would you be?
I would be one of those great big ones with
all the colors!

How is the weather right now?
Dark and cool. Lovely summah nights!

What is your biggest “what if”?
I don't really have "what ifs." I don't plan for the future, really. Except sometimes, when I make plans for escaping from undesirable situations, like animal attacks and kidnapping. Yeah, you can laugh. But the joke will be on you when an alligator tries to drag us under the water and I'm the only one who knows how to make him let go.

What is your biggest regret?
I have a lot of regrets. But, thanks to my terrible memory, I can't recall any of them right now!

Last person you spoke to on the phone? 
Allison. I was telling her to make lunch because I wouldn't be getting home in time.

Favourite restaurant? 
It's either Panera Bread or Red Lobster. I love food so much. Too much. 

Favorite toy as a child?
I had a Beanie Baby that i loved more than life itself. She was a white cat with brown paws, and her name was Snip. I still have her. Now she is skinny and flat, owing to all the beans having fallen out. Also very dirty. But she is still pretty.                                                       

Coffee or tea?
Tea! I love tea! Not coffee. Coffee is evil evil evil. And naaaasty.

Who was your first prom date?
You know, I never went to prom. Being homeschooled, it didn't really come up. But I probably wouldn't have wanted to go anyway. I don't dance, I don't like fruit punch, and I am far, far too cheap to spend any amount of money on a dress.

Who was your first room mate?
Amy was. 

What was your first job? 
Babysitting, I guess. I've never really had a real job. Tooooo lazy.

Where did you go on your first ride on an airplane?
To the Bahamas! My fahdah's family be deah, chile!

Who is your first best friend?
My first best friend was named Kaitlyn Smith. I met her in first grade. Man, we were like peanut butter and jelly, David and Jonathan, Damon and Pythias. The stories I could tell you about Kaitlyn Smith and me! I wonder where she is now? 

When you first snuck out of your house, who was it with? 
I've never snuck out of the house. 

Who was the first person to send you flowers? 
I've never been sent flowers, but I did get a dozen roses from a family friend. 'Cause I was the star of our church's Christmas play! My character was a bratty little girl named Lindsay. It's okay, though. She turned nice in the end.

Who is the first person you call when you have a bad day? 
My mom. 'Cause she's awesome, that's why.

What do you do when you are bored at work?
I don't get bored. Ever. Boredom is for the weak!

What do you do when you are bored at home?
I fill my time with reading and crafts and work and other things that I forget. Sometimes I watch funny videos on YouTube.

When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought? 
"And I hate..... chances."

How much cash do you have on you?
Right now I have five dollars to my name. That is my fortune in all its entirety. 

Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
Oh, I don't know who that number is! Hmm. An oddity.

What does the 5th text message you received on your cell say?
It was Amy asking me for the name of The Inner Circle. She had forgotten it, you see.

Favorite age you have been so far
I remember being really psyched about being 10.

What was the last thing you said to someone? I was telling Abigail that if we left the hose on overnight it would flood the entire earth. It's my sisterly responsibility to shamefully exaggerate the facts.

If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly what would it be? 
Uhh, duh! Flight, of course. Because then I could make a million bucks. 

What reality show do you wish you could be part of?
I don't really know. 

When was the last time you cried? 
Crying is for the weak!! I jest, I jest. I don't remember the last time I cried.

What is under your bed?
Boxes that contain old purses, old issues of Cricket magazine, stuff I don't want to throw away because it has sentimental value, some socks, and other things that I don't remember.

What are you afraid of?
You know, I'm afraid of insanity. I'm afraid of crazy people. I'm afraid of going
 crazy. That would be awful. But I'm not afraid of alligators. Except sometimes.

How many keys on your key ring?
Very few, but they are very pretty keys.

All done! Yaay! Very entertaining and deep and profound, I'm sure. But what about you? Leave a comment with your answers to some of these questions. 


  1. So, I was going to bring up something about Eddie Murphy or Larry King, but I remembered that there may have been some life long oath about not mentioning the subject ever again. So, I'm not going to.

  2. I am now going to personally delete my following of you. I have never been more hurt and offended than I am now.

    Without coffee, my life would be meaningless. I would be floating around in a daze with no ability to fire the nerve endings in my small brain. Mornings would be spent digging an ever deeper rut in my Select Comfort bed. My work would suffer, if I ever made it to work.

    Now, you say that coffee is pure evil. This must mean that the things that would inevitably happen to me without coffee are correct and good.

    My life is over.

    Ok. Now for some humor. I already posted my answer's to this on Amy's blog. To type it again here would mean that I would have to grab a cup of hot brew - which I can't now because it is eeeevil.


  3. Oh no no no no no... I already told you: the flying or money question is not that simple! You are not allowed to make a million dollars by flying. You have to choose one or the other.
    *exasperated sigh*

  4. Rachel!!! Silence, knave! The pact must not go unbroken!! ;-)

    Incongruous, my brother. Turn from the vile ways of The Coffee before it consumeth thy soul and thou art cast into outer darkness where there is wailing and gnashing of teeth. Coffee is a hideous and odiferous substance which offendeth mine senses. Only with The Tea is there true holiness. [I jest!]

    Oh, Amy! Trifling details! Of course it's that simple! But if I had to choose one... I think I'd still go with flight. It's priceless.


Please leave a comment! I like to hear what you guys have to say! Even if you don't really have anything to say, say it. Here are some suggestions in case you are really stuck:
"I love this post and I will send you a thousand dollars as soon as I learn your address."
"I hate this post and I hate you for writing it."
"I like your blog, but your obsession with Jack Bauer is mildly disturbing."
