11 Facts and Questions

I actually got tagged by two people to do this!! First was Allie and then Chantal tagged me. If I were really going to be fair, I'd answer both sets of questions. But I really don't feel like doing that. Instead, I'm just going to answer Chantal's questions... I mean, she was the last one to tag me! ;-) So, here goes nothin'.

The Rules

1. You must post the rules. (and link up who tagged you)
2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post.
3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
4. Tag however many people you want
5. Let them know you've tagged them!

The Facts

1. I loathe nasty anonymous commenters. If you're going to say something rude and unfounded, at least have the guts to put your name with it. *eye roll* Cowards. {I may or may not have had this happen this weekend. Which is why no one will be able to anonymously comment here ever again.}

2. I'm pretty crafty, but none of them ever turn out perfectly. I say this gives things character.

3. I love reading.

4. Unless I'm reading in bed, I read with the TV on. The volume is turned down, but I actually kind of enjoy the background noise. I realize this is weird and I'm ok with it. =P

5. I don't go to the beach nearly as often as I should for someone who lives in Hawaii.

6. I actually don't love living in Hawaii. The thousands of miles between me and family/friends, high prices, and lack of my favorite stores/restaurants are the main reasons for this.

7. I could probably eat my weight in chocolate.

8. Though my eyesight is definitely bad enough for it, and I'm a good candidate, I am not interested in getting Lasik. *shudder*

9. I think about getting a playmate for Jasper frequently. Then I remember the house training and the fact that I'm about to have a baby and forget about it.

10. I continually watch reruns of Grey's Anatomy {thanks, Lifetime!} even though I've seen every. single. episode.

11. I kind of, sort of, in a way, like Star Trek... <--- Totally the husband's fault.

The Questions

1. If you could go back to any period of your life (elementary school, college, that summer when you were 16, etc.), what would it be and why?

Oh, definitely college! Maybe like sophomore-senior year of college. Not all of the times had in college were great, but overall, I loved it. I'd definitely make some different decisions, but I loved being able to meet different people in all my classes and {nerd moment} I loved my history classes. Most importantly, I'd get to meet and date Joe all over again. Hehe. =)

2. Favorite childhood song or band?

Childhood? Hmmm. I grew up listening to country and Garth Brooks was my absolute favorite. Does that count?

3. Would you rather wear hats or headbands?

Headbands. Hats drive me crazy. Unless it's one of those big, floppy beach hats. =P

4. If you had to leave the US forever, where would you live?

Forever? Hmmm. Maybe England. I've always wanted to go there and they have such a rich, long history... Yeah, I could enjoy myself there. Plus, I already speak the language! Ha!

5. Favorite TV show right now?

Well, you already know Grey's is my favorite... Truthfully, I have a lot of favorite TV shows. But Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, Private Practice and Once Upon a Time are my "can't miss" shows currently. =)

6. What item can you not leave the house without?

My phone. Definitely my phone. I'd be completely lost without it. Sad, but true.

7. Do you know how to shoot a gun?

Yep! I've been shooting guns since I was a kid. 

8. Would you rather be famous and die young or be unknown and live until you're old?

I don't care anything about being famous. I'd rather live to be 100 and be a nobody. =)

9. Why do you blog?

The "why" has changed over the last 2 years {can't believe it's been that long!}, but mostly I blog for myself. It's a really, really good outlet for me, I love writing/journaling, and I love getting to know new friends this way. It's how I met most of the people I know in Hawaii. =)

10. What's for dinner?

Not 100% sure right now, but it's looking like we'll have hamburgers and rotel dip for dinner. Totally not healthy, but Joe requested it. 

11. Dog or cat person?

DOG. Definitely a dog person. Cats' holier-than-thou attitudes irritate me. =P Although I will admit that they are cute! Oddly enough, I found out a couple weeks ago that I'm more allergic to dogs than cats, but I react more {think sneezing and wheezing} to cats. I really don't get it... And I'm definitely not getting rid of Jasper!

New Questions

1. What movie could you watch over and over again and never get tired of?
2. If someone gave you a one week vacation to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
3. Favorite food/recipe?
4. What's your favorite guilty pleasure TV show?
5. Harry Potter or Twilight and why? {And yes, you have to choose! =P}
6. What kind of person do you want to be when you "grow up?"
7. Something your mom said repeatedly throughout your childhood.
8. Name one thing you've done you thought you'd never, ever do.
9. What room in your house is your favorite?
10. If you could be anything, have any job, what would it be?
11. What's your favorite thing about blogging?

I don't like to read in silence. I always have the tv or music playing softly in the background!

Chantal said...

Yay you chose my questions!! I used to listen to Garth Brooks as a kid too. I <3 him!

It's funny how I lived in Hawaii all my life and the last few months before leaving I did NOT take advantage of the beach. Now that I've been away from Hawaii for 4 months now, I'd do anything to be at the beach and have Hawaii's weather.

Of course you like Star Trek. It's awesome.
