Q to the a.

I l-o-v-e a good theme. I love traditions. And I love working on projects with friends. So, in that vein, I am countering a recent blog post from my dear friend Melissa, who re-starting blogging this year (hooray!). To get her started, another dear friend, Meg, and I sent her some fun questions to answer - and she finally did a few posts ago. This week, Melissa sent me a few questions of my own. Since the bulk of what I do all day is ask other people questions, I thought it would be fun to turn the tables on myself. And hopefully it is the first of many cross-blog-themed posts!

1. All time favorite song? "Wave of Mutilation" by the Pixies. I've been listening to this song on repeat since I was in 8th grade. UK Surf version, that is, from the Pump Up the Volume soundtrack. The fast version is only ok.

2. If you could only eat one food every day for the rest of your life, what would you choose? Mac and f-ing cheese, baby. Homemade, of course. Preferably by me. Preferably spicy, with pimentos.

3. If you know me well, you know that I'm obsessed with horror movies.

4. Funniest movie of all time? SPACEBALLS! "Say goodbye to your two best friends. And I DON'T mean your pals in the Winnebago."

5. You'd be shocked to know that I have never seen Top Gun. Or Star Wars.

6. What is your dream job? Magazine columnist.

7. If your house was burning down and you could only grab three things (other than Brad and the dogs) what would you take? Our wedding album(s), Birdie (my childhood twin bear with Jess), and my laptop (easier to replace my iPod than all the music files!).

8. How can you possibly dislike pickles? :-) I actually really like pickles. BUT... I only like dill pickles, that I have personally removed from the jar (that I personally purchased and resides in MY fridge), and COMPLETELY SOLO. The idea of pickles, or pickle juice, anywhere near other food makes me want to hurl. As do restaurant pickles. Or pickles in slices. It gives me the shivers to just think about it.
9. What is your dream vacation? A tour of Greece. With a personal guide that speaks Greek. And knows where all the good food is.

10. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? LONDON! (Vacation home in New Orleans.)

11. If you could have one super-power what would it be? To cure head and stomachaches with one tap from my magic fairy wand.
12. I could easily spend all day watching cheesy horror movies.

13. What song do you hate to admit that you love? "She's All I Ever Had" (Spanglish version!) by Ricky Martin.
14. I secretly want to be a stay-at-home dog-mom. (Is this really a secret?)

15. What is your favorite book? I couldn't possibly ever come up with just one... But one that I've revisited many times since I was young is It - and I've also recommended it to many, many people. And it is STILL scary.
16. If you could meet any celebrity, who would you want to meet? Stephen King. (...Who would I like to stare at from across a small room? Christian Bale.)
17. Would you ever sky-dive? Hell to the no. I would consider bungee. Maybe.

18. Do you have any weird/irrational fears? See above re: pickles. Ghosts and/or ouija boards. Worms.
19. Have you ever been in a fist fight? I once got slapped by a girl at a 7th grade dance. Pretty hilarious to think about. Slapping is weird. Who slaps people?

20. Melissa Polivoi is awesome because she is smart, inspiring, and dead sexy. :-)

***The anal retentive side of me feels like I MUST point out that I spent 10 minutes trying to get the font in the copied in text (the questions) to match my default blog font and it just... won't... work. So let's just pretend I did it on purpose. For aesthetic reasons. 


Melissa said...

Yay! Love it! Great answers - especially the one about me :-)

Rachel said...

Hahaha. Font madness!
I'm so glad that a piece of my brain was saved and inserted into yours so we could find each other and spend our anal-retentive editing lives together. "I love you," but for reals. No quotes.
