Getting to know me, getting to know all about me

First the rules:

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

2. Tag other people.

Now the questions:

What are you wearing today? A t-shirt and pajama pants. As sad as it is, this is my usual uniform.

What’s for dinner? Probably just some guacamole and chips. If I am feeling froggy I might grill some chicken. It’s July in Louisiana, too hot to cook anything too involved.

What would you eat for your last meal? This is a hard one for me (that’s what she said). I just like food so much, I feel like it is putting too much pressure on any food I would choose. Maaaybe…pork tenderloin, some of my dad’s fried venison backstrap, mashed potatoes, asparagus, cheesecake. Oh, something Asian, gyoza maybe. And since I am going to die anyway, a shiteton of shrimp, fried, boiled, grilled, stuffed. And something I have never had before, I like to try new things.

What relaxes you most? In general, just hanging out with The Husband is pretty relaxing. In a the-crazy-is-trying-to-get-out situation, taking a shower usually helps a lot.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would it be? Hrmm…maybe Hawaii. That probably sounds completely out of character, but not like the Elvis, touristy, cheesy Hawaii. I would love to see lava, take a surfing lesson (ya know, because I am so athletic), go to sleep listening to the ocean. Or Alaska, I am in a very newest states kinda mood.

What language do you want to learn? All of them. Unfortunately, the only one I speak is English and, being Southern, that one not all that well. I have picked up a very little bit of Spanish from my friend, mostly just swear words though. I learned some Latin when I was high school age, but don’t remember a single word.

What do you love most about where you currently live? I love the huge old oak tree in our front yard. I love that my family is relatively close. I like that it has stores that are open past 8 unlike in our hometown.

What style is your current home decorated in? I don’t think there is a style…eclectic maybe. I love clean, no fuss, mid-century modern. Still a lot of our furniture is hand-me-downs or this-is-the-best-we-are-gonna-do-at-this-price-range-in-this-podunk-town. It’s slowly but surely getting there though.

If you were a time traveler what era would you live in? I might like to visit other eras, but considering my dependence on such modern technology as electricity, climate control, modern dentistry and orthadonics, bathing, vision care, medicine, etc. I think it’s probably a good thing that I was born in the time that I was.

What is your favorite color? Depends what the color is for. It changes pretty regularly too. I have been trending towards light, bright colors and white lately though.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe? I don’t really have one. I am not really all that into clothes, as long as it is comfortable and clean, I am good.

What were you doing ten years ago? July of 1999, I was finishing up technical college, working part-time at the local grocery store in my hometown. Spending most of my free time with The Husband, then The Boyfriend.

What are you going to do after this? Probably eat some lunch, maybe watch some television, maybe go swimming later. Riveting stuff

What are your favorite films? I have a confession. I am a total sucker for fluffy movies. I appreciate movies, like The Godfather, Brazil, The Lord of the Rings, Pulp Fiction, etc, but my favorite kind of film to watch is the lighter fare. The Princess Bride, Pride and Prejudice, French Kiss.

What are your favorite books? I pretty much just love books in general. Again with the Pride and Prejudice (ugh so cliche), Jane Eyre, Hitchhiker’s Guide, love scifi and fantasy.

Do you collect anything? Souls. JKLOL. Not that I can think of. We have a lot of books, but I wouldn’t say we collect them.

What makes you follow a blog? Most of the blogs I follow are informational. Cooking, tech, crafting, etc. For personal blogs, as long as it is honest and I can relate to it.

What was the most enjoyable thing you did today? Well, it’s still relatively early on a Saturday afternoon, so drank my coffee and chatted with my siblings on facebook.

Ann’s Question: What makes you comment on a blog? If I feel I can add anything to the subject at hand. I feel I have some information that may be helpful. I can win something in a giveaway.

Amy’s Question: What is your favorite thing to do when you have free time? Spend time with my husband and family (barf), knit, read, bake, be utterly boring apparently.

Tonya’s Question: What is a talent you wished you had? I wish I had more natural artistic ability. My younger sisters have it and if I could figure out a way to rob them of it, I totally would.

Noelle’s Question: If you could go to heaven, who would you see and why? I would probably end up just taking note of who got in and who didn’t and then analyzing why that may be. Also my grandparents and great-grandparents and my uncle who have passed. Assuming they got in, which if they didn’t, screw it, I don’t want to go.

Vickie’s Question: Who is your favorite actor? I don’t think I really have one.

Kitten’s Question: Other than Blogger, Facebook, Twitter, etc. what are your most frequently visited websites? My family members’ blogs and journals. My googlereader. Flickr. I always try and hit Apartment Therapy, Design*Sponge, and Dooce, and GoogleNews roughly daily.

SeptemberMom’s Question: What was your favorite subject in school? Probably either English (lit not grammar) or History. I wish I had gotten more into science when I had the intellectual capacity to absorb more of it as I find it fascinating now.

Christy’s question: As a child/teen how did you envision your adult life? Housewife and mom to a passel of kids. I guess I was half right.

Dan from Art of Panic’s Question: How much time do you spend on your average blog post? Usually more time than should be necessary for it’s caliber.

Little Ms Blogger’s Question: If you could would you want to control the weather? That would probably be a really bad idea. It would always be 75ish, mostly sunny with an occasion light shower until I decided I felt like wearing a hat and mittens and then it would be snowing with next to no warning. In other words, I would end up destroying the world.

Susan’s Question: What is the one think you’d like to check off your “bucket list” in the next 5 years? I don’t have a bucket list. It sounds like a good idea, but I don’t think it would be healthy for me in the long run. Am too competitive and tend to be really hard on myself when I don’t reach goals I have set for myself. Plus, if life has taught me nothing else it’s that we’re not really in control, we are leaves on the wind.

Emotional Umbrella’s Question: If you could give any advice to your teenage self, what would it be? That while it doesn’t necessarily get easier, it does get better. And to start flossing.

My question: How lame is it that I can’t think of a question to add? Pretty damn.

And I answered all of them. I am a maverick that way.

Tagging: Mom, Rach, and Hannah.
