Q and A

Miss Emma has tagged me for a little q & a! Since I'd do just about anything she told me to do, here it is...


1. Respond and rework: Answer the questions on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention, add one more question of your own.

2. Tag other un-tagged people.

What are you wearing?

My "Missy-Elliot-look-a-like" purple velour pants and a Rolling Stones tee. Comfy!

What would you like to learn to do?
I would love to learn how to fence. There is something ridiculously sexy about swords.

What did you have for dinner?

Lamb Chops. Not the puppet.

What was the last thing you bought?
A photo with Rachel complete with re-enactors from Gone with the Wind production at the Fabulous Fox Theatre!

What are you listening to right now?
John Prine. Thanks for the CD, Bryan!

What is your favorite weather?Beach weather is definitely my favorite!

What is on your bedside table?
A lamp, my journals, To the Lighthouse (only because I haven't reshelved it), 1 picture of me and my friend Marida, 1 of me and my sisters on my 22nd birthday, and 1 of my parents on their wedding day. Oh, and a bottle of water, because dehydration is the number one killer of women (who are stuck in the desert for more than 3 days without a drop to drink).

What is the smallest gesture that makes you happy?
When strangers smile at each other for no reason.

Which actor/actress do you think is similar to you?
I asked my sister and she said Catherine Zeta Jones. She was probably trying to make me feel better...

What is your most challenging goal right now?
To not be too rash. Its very hard for me not to throw caution to the wind in one particular aspect of my life (Sorry to be cryptic! I'll explain everything before too long!) but right now slow and steady is the best way to go. It is so hard for me to do! I'm not used to curbing my spontaneity!

What is a fashion style you can't stand?

Forever 21's Shop by Outfit. Basically they've taken all their sale items and coordinated them badly. It isn't edgy or stylish. It's lazy and repulsive.

Favorite vacation spot?
Considering I only have one vacation spot I'll have to say Fort Morgan. After all these years, I'm still in love with the Gulf Coast.

Name the things you cannot live without:
books music air water shelter
(in that order)

What would you like to get rid of?
My old handbags that are coming apart at the seams. I can't though... too much sentimental value.

If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
I'm totally going to Italy with Emma!

What language do you want to learn?
I really want to conquer Chinese just to prove to myself that its possible. Then Klingon as a conversation piece.

What quality do you dislike most in a a person?
Its a rather nasty tie between arrogance and hypocrisy.

What countries have you visited?
Jamaica, England, France, Switzerland, Germany and New York City

What is your all time favorite movie?
Yet another tie for the girl who can not commit: Gone With the Wind and 39 Steps

What's you favorite quality about yourself?
My generosity... even if it is to a fault sometimes.

What is your favorite quote/saying?
It used to be, "peace out, bitches". Now I guess it's, "really? I mean, really?" or "brilliant"

Say one random fact about yourself:
I can't pass up the chance to buy a toothbrush. I'll even charge it if I don't have any cash. Totally compulsive and I have no idea why I do it!!!

What is a charity that is close to your heart?
DogTown. If you haven't heard about it, check it out here.
What are you most afraid of?
Not following through on my dreams.

I am tagging my sister to welcome her to the blogtastic life, Lenina to see what she says, and California Jen because its a great way to get to know her!

Oh my god I love you and your answers! First of all the doggie charity is the best! I have seen some pics of you and I am totally on board the whole Catherine boat! We are sooo going to Italy one day! Although I am not sure how much your Klingon skills will come in handy. Now I just have to think of something really great to ask you to do! (hehe you are are too good to me!)
"Peace out, Bitches!"

I know! I saw an episode of DogTown when I was in ATL this weekend and it blew me away- I'd give them anything!
I don't know about the Zeta- she's smoking and I look 12. Um... Italian boys totally love Klingon, thank you very much. Or is it wine and women? I can never keep them straight...

jules said...

these are such great answers. I love the puppet lamb chops, not so much the food though.

Sunday's Pearl said...

I like the puppet too, but the fabric and cotton stuffing kept upsetting my stomach. Now I stick with the meaty lamb chop:)

I'm playing I'm playing!
