And I love questions. Asking and answering them. Fill in the blank, either/or, straight up curiosity ones... I'm all about the questions. I like to dig deep.
So I answered them too. Because I'm just
My biggest pet peeve, besides uttering the actual term "pet peeve," is probably dumb grammar. I know being a grammar snob probably isn't the best thing to man up to, but it drives me nuts. On the plus side though, I only correct my own children - not other people, which is something that I find kind of rude. I hate when people don't grasp the whole me vs. I thing. Like instead of saying, "That's for John and me," they'll say, "That's for John and I," which of course is not grammatically correct. I seriously have seen those kinds of mistakes in actual books, with editors! I've also heard them on TV. A huge offender is Allison Sweeney on The Biggest Loser. I love her, but I want to reach through the TV and correct her all of the time.
My go-to karaoke song is non-existent. I cannot get myself on a stage and speak coherently, much less sing in front of people. A karaoke date would pretty much be my nightmare, and I would definitely have to be tanked in order to participate. One of the very few times I actually sang Karaoke was with my sisters somewhere, and I was peer pressured into singing a Neil Diamond song, Sweet Caroline. I may or may not have rocked the house.
The last time I went to an opera was a few years ago. I am not typically an opera fan. I've never really been into them, but my kid Kara was one of the leads in a show at college, Street Scene, and of course I went. I'm not sure if it was because it was her show, but I definitely didn't hate it. And she of course killed it.
My secret to a good hair day is to go to an expensive salon. If I ever have a good hair day, that's why. I mean, I can do my hair and it looks nice, for about 35 minutes. I'll like, walk out of my bathroom feeling like a rockstar with nice hair, and before an hour is up, I'm like, what the hell? I think it's because I have really thin hair. It has no body whatsoever. It just gets really flat fast. Which is exactly why I am pro-pony tail. And expensive salons.
The nerdiest thing about me may very well be my weird love of office supplies. In all honesty, I could spend a ridiculous amount of time in Staples or Office Max, just longingly walking up and down the aisles. I want everything. I love Sharpies. And folders. And binders. All of that stuff. Maybe instead of being nerdy, that's just weird.
The biggest misconception about me is probably that I am snotty. I think quiet people tend to get that a lot. I absolutely do not think that I'm above you, I am just shyish, and I am not good at putting myself out there. It really takes a while for me to warm up and join in. I need to assess the situation first usually, and get a feel for the people that I'm in a conversation with. Also, I've had people say they waved to me and I didn't wave back, and really, it's because I can't see! Not because I am ignoring someone. Promise!
My celebrity crush is hmm... Ryan Gosling. I just find him really attractive in a non-threatening way. Like, the super hot guys always seem to be dicks. I think Ryan isn't your "typical" super hot guy, and in my thought process, that would make him be a good guy and not a jerk. I also would probably not turn down a date with Ian Somerhalder. And Jesse Williams. I definitely would make out with either of them, even though Jesse is basically a baby and I am an old cougar. Rawr.
(and segue into...)The best make out music. In my opinion, it would probably be something not all slow and romantic-ish. Is that weird? Like, I think it would definitely lead to a hotter make out session if you were listening to something like Nine Inch Nails or The Cure - something like that. Ah, I guess it depends on the mood. Sometimes something slow and low and sexy, like a good tune from The Nationals or The Magnetic Fields would be the best kind of music for getting steamy.
What about you guys? Want to answer some questions?
