WOW - One of you sent me some seriously crazy questions to answer..
I accept your challenge!
How do you feel about people who make Facebook profiles for their pets?
- I think that is a little self indulgent, but very creative. I could see creating a fan page.. versus a friend page. That's gives me a great idea - I am going to create a fan page for my fluffy pillow. ;-)
If you drink coffee, do you have a favorite flavor & brand? If so, what?
- Seriously? Did you really just ask this question? I drink coffee - and a LOT. At home, I am a traditionalist, I usually purchase Starbucks ground or whole bean coffee. I do use creamer. Typically I will pick up the Italian Sweet Creme from Coffee Mate. I also have an espresso machine, and my husband makes Turkish coffee.
When I go to Starbucks - I will order a caffe latte, cappuchino or caramel macchiato.
At the convenience store - I grab a double shot espresso (can from Starbucks.)
Have you ever personally known a pair of Conjoined twins?
- Actually no. But I find it fascinating. I assure you, if I see some, I am their new best friend.
What is your first thought when you see people kissing in public?
- Eww.. Not a fan of PDA. But a sweet peck is romantic.
Does the fact that Eminem is a notorious homophobe bother you?
No. Everyone has a right to be who they are. He's just an idiot.
Would you ever consider being a professional stunt-person?
How about a Mailman?
- Heck yeah. I think there is something very zen about the route and organizing by zip.
Who would win in a fight between a grilled cheese and a taco?
The taco has more muscle, definitely. If I have to choose between the two for food.. I might say grilled cheese.
What do you think of people who keep exotic animals as pets?
HA - I used to be one of those people. And it's a really stupid idea.
Would you ever donate your body to science? Why/why not?
Actually - sort of. I am an organ donor. But I really want to be cremated, so - they can take some parts of me.. just not the whole shebang.
Do you think the feeling of flying a plane would be amazing? Or just scary?
In hide-n-seek, what was the longest amount of time you ever stayed hidden?
Oh WOW - 30 minutes once. We used to play a counselor hunt at a camp I worked at - I lay in a ditch covered in leaves for almost 1/2 an hour. I totally think I would rock in War. ;-)
(Besides Hello kitty) Do you have a favorite Sanrio character? If so, Who?
- San who?
What was the most disturbing thing you have ever heard your mother say?
Disturbing.. not so sure. Mean- "I wish you were never born."
Do you flinch when strangers touch you? I flinch a lot. I am jumpy. I get so focused on something, I will not even realize you are there. You pop up and speak, I will jump out of my skin.
Can you remember the first time you went to a movie theater?
Sort of. I think it was to see Bambi.
If so, can you remember what movie you saw? What was it?
Oops - I skipped ahead.
What is one fear you DIDN'T have as a child but do now?
How can you be sure that you really exist?
I was just thinking about this the other day.
Is there something in particular you like to look at photos of? What is it?
I like nature pics and baby animals. (See there is a soft side to me.)
Do you actually like the taste of Diet Soda? I actually do. But I rarely drink the crap.
Would/do you carry a purse made of real leather? I have in the past - I don't now. I am trying to be conscious of the whole cruelty free thing.
Describe to me your last major epiphany: Read my post on "They Actually Don't Understand."
Do you think eating disorders are caused by a genetic predisposition? NO. I think eating disorders are caused by a distortion/view of their body and according to a friend of mine that was hospitalized for years b/c of this - child molestation can contribute. She never wanted a woman's body. She did not want to be seen as a sexual object.
If not, do you believe it is the media? Or something else? Please explain.
I think I just did.
What brand of toilet paper do you normally use? Charmin, double roll.
Do the Charmin bears make you feel uncomfortable? No.. but it's gross to think of dirty toilet paper stuck to their furry behinds..
On average, how many cans of soda would you say you drink daily? 0 (more like.. maybe one every other week.
Chewy chocolate-chip cookies: like or dislike?
Did/do you ever stick your chewed -up gum under tables? Yep.
Can you remember the last thing you watched on the news that upset you?
Violence in Libya
If you can, will you tell me what it was? I just did.
If your Boyfriend/Girlfriend wanted to dress only in the opposite sex's....
Clothing, would you support that? If not, would you leave them? hahahaha
I actually dated a guy that eventually admitted he liked dressing in women's clothing. However, he was straight.
Needless to say... that relationship is no longer.
What does your favorite throw blanket look like? It's a coral colored snuggie. OR my red soft snowflake blanket.
How do you feel about red lipstick, is it whorish? I love red lipstick. I don't think it's whorish. What makes something whorish is if you have sex and get paid for it. That's whorish.
What is YOU'RE definition of feminism? Knowing that women are unique as well as equal to men. Knowing a woman is capable of doing great things.
What was the last toy you got in a Happy Meal? I haven't had a Happy Meal in a million years. I'll keep you posted.
Are you comfortable in shorts? It doesn't bother me. Again, I am not obsessed with my body. Sure, I am chubby - but whatever.
So, have you watched that Bob's Burgers show? Do you like it? Huh?
Describe to me a favorite memory you have with someone you met online: That would be the post titled: "What the deal with you and yasser"
Do you think your grandmother is/was beautiful? My Grandma Betty had BEAUTIFUL green eyes. My grandma Thurston... hmmm.. maybe she had pretty dark hair.
What do you think of the KKK? Are they a joke now? I think they are a bunch of uneducated scum of the earth. (Remember, I live in the South) - They are not a joke, and I would be very careful around them. They are dangerous and they are real.
Okay - there you have it. I answered your questions. Thanks for sending them. If anyone has any questions they would like me to answer (anonymous like this one) or not - feel free!
