I usually don’t do this butttt…… I figured it would be helpful for new readers to get to know me a little bit since I’ve been bitching so much about feeling blah (and therefore not really writing like I have been). I stumbled across this post from Thirteen Thoughts and figured I’d throw in my own two cents so y’all can get to know me a bit better. Yup. This one is going to be allllll about me. Deal with it.
1. Are you named after someone?
Not that I know of, but my paternal great-grandmother’s name was Angelina. So maybe that counts? The story I always heard was that I’d be Rebecca or Antoinette, but I looked like an angel when I was a baby. My, how times have changed..
2. When was the last time you cried?
A ha. Ahahaha. Have you seen my recent posts? Actually, it was Sunday when I just wanted to get the cold water to turn on and the pliers I had to use to get the knob to turn were slipping and I. just. couldn’t. make. it. work. It was very un-Tim Gunn of me.
3. Do you have kids?
4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I’d be all, “Who is this whiny bitch and why doesn’t she just get over it already?” Kidding. I would. Especially if I also liked Gilmore Girls, beer, and being sarcastically awesome at all times.
5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?
I am behind Nicole Antoinette and her insistence that pleasure shouldn’t be guilty. That said…. I was on a kick of eating Chocolate Special K with almond milk and reading Yes Please in bed.
6. Do you like handwriting?
Yes! I am obsessed with all the hand-lettering Instagram accounts. As a result, I want to re-teach myself how to do proper calligraphy.
7. What is your favorite cereal?
I just bought a box of Reese’s Puffs. It’s probably the furthest thing from cereal (and nutrition) one can get, but it’s damn good. I usually always have Cheerios in my cabinet. It isn’t my favorite, but I always have it just in case I need a midnight snack and my Special K is gone. Guilty pleasures aside, I really don’t buy cereal. It’s expensive, man!
8. What is the first thing you notice about people?
I know there’s this thing about noticing bad eyebrows first and how some people don’t trust other people with bad eyebrows, but that’s just mean. I am that person walking around with bad eyebrows because I go from perfectly fine to cave-woman overnight. I will gladly have monthly gynecological exams if it means I never have to tweeze my eyebrows ever again. That sure took a turn. I’d say their nails.
9. What color are your eyes?
Green. To varying degrees depending on what I’m wearing.
10. Scary movies or happy endings?
Happy endings. Life is scary enough, yo.
11. Favorite TV show?
Gilmore Girls. Parks & Rec. Sex & the City. The Office. HIMYM. I Love Lucy. See — sticking with that happy ending thing.
12. Summer or winter?
13. Hugs or kisses?
Both, please. Physical touch is my top “love language.” (Wondering what that is? Here ya go.)
14. What’s the furthest you’ve been from home?
15. Do you have special talents?
16. Where were you born.
17. What are your hobbies?
Currently: eating everything that isn’t nailed down. Crying. Binging on Netflix. What it normally is: scrapbooking/paper crafting. Writing. Reading. Baking.
18. Do you have any pets?
Not currently. Unless you count plants. Sadface.
19. Favorite movie?
I stop and watch Goodfellas anytime I see it on TV. I can watch Moonrise Kingdom over and over. I can quote Anchorman front to back.
20. What color is your car?
They tell me it’s white, but it’s usually always streaked with dirt so who’s to say.
21. What did you want to be when you grow up?
A writer. Seriously.
Since this is a tag…I guess I have to tag someone now? Anyone who wants to do this…you’re it.
