Mid-week procrastination

What I'd much rather be doing...
 
I have nothing really important to say right now - though I do have a few semi-interesting posts to share in a few weeks. However, I felt that plagiarizing Kali's meme would be good way for me to take my mind off things as I sit here noshing on lunch, and to answer several mind-blowing questions that will change how you view me as a person... I think. 

1. What are you wearing?
Araks robe, Uggs slippers, Target tank top & modal capri tights from The Gap.

2. Have you ever been in love?
Many times

3. Have you even gone through a horrible breakup?
Nah, I'm a pretty amicable person. 

4.  How tall are you?
5 ft. 1in. 

5. How Much do you weigh?
Seriously? 108 lbs on a good day.

6. Do you have tattoos?
Nope. 

7. Do you have piercings?
Just the ears. 

8. What is the ideal couple to you? 
Paul Newman and Joanna Woodward! An ideal couple would be equal parts lovers and equal parts friends. 

 9. Your favourite TV show?  
Favorite  TV show ever was Fawlty Towers though I actually just caught reruns of it twenty years later. I was also a huge fan of Quantum Leap (Oh, boy!). Newer favorites include the perfunctory Sherlock, The West Wing, Arrested Development and Boardwalk Empire. I don't actually watch very much TV anymore *sad face*

10. Your favourite band? 
My all time favorite bands are Blur and The Divine Comedy. Current favorites are Owen Pallett,  Fanfarlo, Ramona Falls and The New Pornographers.

11. Something you're missing?
Food from home (and my mom). 

12.  Your favourite song?
EVER? Interpol's 'Obstacle 1'. It's my drunk song. And 'Speedway' by Morrissey.

13. How old are you?
31.97

14. What's your astrological sign? 
Scorpio

15. An essential quality for a boyfriend?
I don't know... being mind numbingly smoking hot?

'To have great wealth means to live sparingly with a clear heart; small wants are always met'
- Lucretius, De Rarum de Natura, Book Five, Line 1115-1116

17. Favourite Actor?
Of all time? Cary Grant!!!! I also used to really like Robert De Niro and John Cusack, but I have no idea what happened to them. Recently, I'm having the hots for James McAvoy and sometimes Christian Bale when he isn't being weird.

18. Favourite Colour?
Grey.

19. Do you listen to music at a low or high volume? 
Medium.

20. Where do you go when you are sad?
I snuggle next to my dog.

21. How long do you stay in the shower?
Depends on what I'm doing. Some things just take longer.

22. How long does it take to get ready in the morning?
Ten minutes - Brush teeth, rinse face, toner, moisturizer, eye cream, sun block, lip gloss, brow gel and brush unruly hair. I always wake up late, so I don't spend too much time getting ready.

23. Did you ever get in a fight?
A fist fight? I think when I was six, I threw someone's backpack out of a moving bus. He was understandably displeased. That's the last fist fight I remember. I get into arguments a lot though.

24. Something that seduces you in a man?
Being very, very smart.

25. The most repelling thing in a man? 
Entitled douchey-ness.

My dog dying.

The thought of my dog dying.

  1. This reminds me of the spam books we had in middle school. Did anyone else have them? There was one question on each page - pretty similar questions actually- and we would pass the notebook around for folks to fill out.

  3. That was fun! And, yes, James McAvoy is remarkably pretty, especially in Atonement--a film that gets me every time.

    1. I only eat fried chicken like twice a year. It's my guilty pleasure - I sit down with a movie and a 5 piece tub and go to town. I'm sure it's very attractive.

  5. Totally with you on the dog kissing and the crying over the possibility of the dog dying. If I were an actor that would be my go-to crying tool. Just the thought of it gets me every. damn. time!

    1. Yes, my dog thinks I'm nuts because every time I read a sad story on Facebook about dying/abused dogs, I go and lie down next to my dog and tell him I love him while squeezing him tightly -- he just wants to get away.

  6. Oh I can relate to #27 and #28 so much! Augh!

  7. #47 - I was recently discussing this with a friend as an idea for an 80s' theme Halloween party. Then we decided we were too old for Halloween and no one at the party would get the reference...because they're too young.

    1. Oh you should have! I think people really underestimate the cultural competence of those younger than them. As much as people dog on millenials, I feel like we're familiar with a lot more pop culture from generations before us precisely because of things like the internet (moreso than someone our age in a different era). I know plenty of people who would've got (and loved) the reference. Also the Back to the Future series is quite well known, in the U.S. at least. I understood #47 right off the bat and I've never seen the movies.

      Also... Google. Or having a link to the movie if it's a Facebook event. (I've done that with friends for parties where we're not sure if everyone will get the reference) Then you're sure everyone's on the same page :)
