I usually get fun "big" stuff, like a TV one year. Last year, I got my Visor Handspring (palm pilot), which is really cool.
Where do you live right now?
Deerfield, Illinois. It's a suburb of Chicago, about 20 miles north.
Okay, where do you live in your fantasy world?
On a beach, sipping drinks from a coconut and sleeping under a palm tree. *sigh* A relaxed life.
If you were stranded on a desert island (with Rich from Survivor stalking you) and could only take one book, what would it be and why?
Complete Idiot's Guide to Avoiding Stalkers? Nah, probably the Complete Idiot's Guide to Surviving on a Desert Island, or an issue of Rolling Stone Mag.
Same situation...what CD would you take and why?
Matchbox 20, "Yourself or Someone Like You". Because I love it to pieces, and would never ever ever get sick of listening to it.
What's the weirdest question you ever asked your parents?
I don't remember. I don't think I asked too many weird questions as a kid. By the time I was old enough to want to ask weird questions, I was smart enough not to. :o)
While in school (high school or college or both) what one class could you not wait for?
I have never dreaded going to Chorus, and I usually can't wait for English and Theatre.
What movie (or movies) could pass for the story of your life?
Geez, I don't know. I could name some songs that would. I wish I could say something cool like Almost Famous or Empire Records, but I'll have to say The Truth About Cats and Dogs.
What are you wearing right now?
cute peach tee-shirt with my awesome-fitting Limited jeans.
What's in your shower caddy?
Huge-ass bottle of Finesse Plus Shampoo/Conditioner, Bath and Body Works Country Apple shower gel, and Skintimate shave gel. Oh, and two different razors (yes, both are necessary)
Take an inventory of your refrigerator (yes, actually get up and go look inside it). What's there?
The upstairs fridge has a bunch of shit that my parents buy. Downstairs, there is a bunch of alcohol and maybe a jar of pickles. Had I not finished my Frappuccino this morning, there would have been a bottle of that too.
What's the wildest fun you've ever had?
I live a very boring life. My sister's wedding was a lot of fun though.
You're about to meet a foreign dignitary and discuss solutions to a major world problem. Who are you meeting, what's the problem, and most importantly, what are you wearing for the event?
I would be wearing a very cute and form flattering evening gown, because this is a dinner meeting. I'm probably talking to the President, because I'd feel too intimidated otherwise. We are discussing the stuff he keeps fucking up in this nation.
If you're ever going to get arrested for anything, what will it be?
Violating curfew (how sad is that?)
What's the wildest thing you'd ever do to get backstage at a concert?
I've never tried to get backstage at a concert.
If you could step outside your normal personality for a little while, what would you do?
I honestly don't know. My personality is kinda weird. I'm quarky sometimes, and reserved other. I can be outgoing, or shy. I sort of cover all the bases just being myself.
Did you ever have a crush on one of your teachers? Be honest.
Hell yes. Mr. Hibler, 7th grade Social Studies. This man was a hottie, not to mention he'd just come out of the army, so he was buff. If he gave you a detention, you would stay after and do push ups with him. Had I been able to do more than 2 push ups, I would have done something to get me into a detention.
What's the weirdest thing you ever did to your hair?
My hair for the wedding was unique, but I'd say the weirdest thing would be getting a perm (yes, I had a perm in 4th grade. It was a fashion no no, but then again, I was only 11).
Who was your best kiss ever with?
Seeing as I've never truly been kissed then I wouldn't know.
Look in your closet. What's the predominant color?
Gray and blue.
How loud is the music in your car?
On a scale from 1 to 10, I try to keep it at an 11. Right now, it's probably pretty loud. I was singing to Brit's "Stronger" while going 55 down Waukegan Road with all the windows down, and the music still drowned me out.
If you could ask your favorite celebrity one question, who would you ask and what's the question?
That's a tough one. I'd probably ask something to *NSYNC. Maybe ask Justin if he ever wished he would have grown up like a normal teenager. Then I'd probably ask him on a date, ya know, let him see what it would be like to go on a date with a normal teenager.
Did anything out of the ordinary happen to you today?
I invaded my sister's apartment without her knowing, but that's not really abnormal. I do it a lot. And she always finds out through Journal.
What's the biggest library fine you've ever paid?
$11. I had 3 books on Hernando De Soto for over month after they were due. It was for a report in 5th grade. I was even a slack back then (that I never took the books back). [The fines were about 10 cents per day per book. Ouch.]
Shakespeare - brilliant or a bunch of crap?
I wouldn't go straight to "brilliant", but he's very good.
Describe your ideal mate.
*sigh* Anything male that moves? No, I'd say he would have to be kind and caring. Funny, understanding, a little crazy, carefree, responsible (to make up for me not being very responsible). It would be nice if he were good looking too.
On which wrist do you wear your watch?
How young is your youngest friend?
How old is your oldest friend?
What do you eat that most people would consider nasty?
Peanut butter and bacon sandwiches. They are a family thing and perfect for any meal. You couldn't get more fat in there if you tried.
List your guilty pleasures, whatever they may be.
*NSYNC slash, MB20 slash, NSYNC in general is basically a guilty pleasure
You just found a $20 bill. What do you do with it?
Take a trip to Best Buy and buy a CD or DVD (or both and end up spending more than I found)
If your favorite celebrity propositioned you for a one night stand, would you do it?
Yes. Why would anyone say no?
What's the worst name you can think of, boy and girl?
Are the undies in your panty drawer wild and crazy or conservative and boring?
Boring, but colorfully conservative.
Bush or Gore?
Clinton for a third term!!! (I would have voted for him again)
Why do you get up in the morning?
I ask myself that most mornings. Because if I don't, I feel like I wasted the entire day. And starting tomorrow I'll have school.
What's your dream job?
Anything to do with Disney, *NSYNC, or TV/Theatre. It would be awesome to work for MTV, VH1 or Rolling Stone.
What's the hardest drug you've ever tried?
I was prescribed Vicatin for my broken foot. It made me sick, so I stopped taking it after 3 pills. (My friends say I should sell the rest, and if that weren't so illegal, I would)
Have you ever stopped watching a movie before it was over?
Sliding Doors, I just couldn't bring myself to finish it.
What keeps you sane?
Friends, family, my cat, writing, Journal, music
If you could live in any other time of history, when would it be and why?
I think it would be cool to have lived in the early 1900s, or the late 60s/early 70s.
At what time of day are you the most creative?
Unfortunately, anytime after 10pm, but then I have all these great ideas and if I follow through with them, I'm up until 3am and I don't get any sleep and it's really a crisis.
What's the most danger you've ever been in?
I was in a car in the middle of a tornado. When I was in about 3rd grade, we were traveling to visit my grandma and had to stop in a parking lot while the tornado went though. I don't remember being really scared, but it was dangerous.
