I’ve done two of these so far but I promised Melody so humor me if you will, by reading more about me. Okay? Oh, and be sure to stop by Melody’s blog so you can see the questions she answered.
Here’s what she asked:
Who is your idol? It can be anyone and doesn’t have to be a celebrity or a public figure.
Um…a certain runner, writer, Japanese guy named Haruki Murakami. One day, he decided to write a novel and he had no idea that he would have the followers that he does today… or this weird, stalker girl named Ti, following him all over Facebook. Notice how I called myself a girl. I kill myself sometimes.
If you could be someone famous, who would you be?
I don’t think I would model myself after anyone out there now, but I would be a famous writer.
What are your favorite TV shows or movies?
I love The Big Bang Theory, Seinfeld, The Wonder Years and I hate to say it… sometimes I watch Roseanne. I know! You thought so much more of me. I am beginning to watch Downton, too. I have watched a couple of episodes and it’s really good. As for movies, I have several that I watch over and over again, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink (see a theme here?), Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Tootsie, Arthur (the original), The Goodbye Girl (original), Some Like it Hot, When Harry Met Sally, Jaws…and the list goes on.
Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings? Why?
HP. I never got into the Rings. Never.
Popcorn: Sweet or Salty? Why?
Salty. I do not like sweets too much although since I have gone gluten-free, I crave sweets more than I used to.
Facebook or Twitter? Why?
Facebook. I feel as if I have real conversations there and that I am not just screaming into a room with a lot of people talking over me.
What are your pet peeves?
One big one is when people continue to use their phones at the movies once the movie has begun. This is such an issue with me, that I no longer go to the movies. Put your damn phone away or stay home!
Where do you like to go for vacation?
In my mind, I like beach vacations but when I actually get there, I get irritated with sand and it being everywhere. So I think the ideal place to vacation is a fun city, close to the beach so I can gaze at it from afar, and then do super fun things all day long.
What are the most wonderful memories that you had last year?
Oh, too many to list, but they are all simple things like my daughter helping me make pancakes or learning how to make scrambled eggs. My son growing as a basketball player and becoming a more aggressive player with every season. Stuff like that.
What’s your favorite holiday?
Thanksgiving. Sad, but I like the food part. Oh, and the togetherness.
Would you read a book that’s received lots of hype and positive reviews, even though the story line isn’t what you like to read?
Yes, I would. Yes, I have.
