1. If you were a member of the Brady Bunch, the Scooby Doo clan, or The Flinstones, which character would you be? Why?
Wow, it's been so long since I've seen any of these shows. I guess I get a big fat fail. I remember Velma, aka Jenny Jerkface, being the smart, nerdy one. I'm totally a nerd. I guess I'm pretty smart.
|Power to the nerds. They rule the world.|
P.S. Did you know her last name is Dinkley? LoL! I sure didn't.
2. What is the one food in this world that exists solely to torture you?
This, I have an answer for. Red licorice! I'm not talking about crappy-ass Twizzlers, but the original Red Vines. They are a favorite movie snack, and I eat them until I feel like my stomach is going to explode. Every time. I usually end up giving the hubby the bag because I do not have to self control to stop eating them. It's sad, I'm a helpless glutton.
|I would NEVER buy this. I would die of hyperglycemic shock.|
3. Explain to us, in detail, the strangest thing you've ever eaten and how you came to eat it.
I'm going to keep this rather, ahem PG-13 rated and not XXX rated, and keep it strictly to food, people. ;)
I would have to say tofu jerky. It tasted like dog food. Because I'm a psycho-anal (har har har) vegetarian, I do not get too adventurous with food. If I don't know what is in it, I don't eat it. Plain and simple. I was forced to eat antelope way back in the day, and it's one of the reasons I'm a vegetarian. FYI: Don't force a child to eat something then show them pictures of the dead animal they just ate. Doesn't bode well.
|This was me. No, I'm not lying.|
Want to know something even more weird? I grew up in the boonies where we have cattle. It seemed to have the vegetarian-izing effect as opposed to the typical effect it has on people. I got super sensitive as opposed to super sensitized.
|This is me at heart. A dirty hippie.|
4. How often do you read for pleasure (and I'm NOT hinting at fanfic here, you dirty h00rs! But ff counts as pleasure reading, just an EXTRA dose of pleasure!)?
I read every single night. It's sort of my bed time routine. I have found that it calms my racing mind better than anything. The tradition actually happened a few years ago when I started reading Twilight. I was not much of a recreational reader until those books. Since then, I've read nearly all I can afford/get my hands on. Currently reading Beautiful Darkness, the sequel to Beautiful Creatures. I admit, before this quasi-new found Twitter addiction, I used to get a lot more reading done. Now, computer time sort of gets in the way of my reading time.. and my "everything else" time!!
|Yes, I'm a total bookworm. I'm okay with it. I'm surrounded by my kin.|
5. Alice in Wonderland. The first or second incarnation from Disney?
Wow. Another fail. Never saw the second one. I wanted to, but I never go around to it. Plus, I prefer my Johnny Depp to look like this:
|I'd even share him with Latchkey Wife.|
6. Describe the place in your house where you usually sit to induldge in all the bloggy/Twitter fun.
I have a particular little nook in the couch. We have an extremely comfortable sectional, and I sit right in the corner so my back is supported and my feet are up on the couch as well.
|I'm sort of like Dr. Sheldon Cooper, if you sit in my spot, it's war.|
7. What is your favorite fairy tale or childhood storybook?
I've always loved Sleeping Beauty. I used to prance around the house singing all of the songs, pretending I was Briar Rose. I thought it was so romantic! Then, I read Anne Rice's version and lawdy, I can not watch it the same!! If you haven't read Anne Rice writing under the pseudonym of A. N. Roguelaure, I highly suggest it.
Warning: Heavy BDSM themes and hot-ass sex scenes included.
|Do yourself a favor and read it. Seriously. Do it.|
