I am spending the day back in Orange County, so I have quickly whipped up this week's Ten on Tuesday; regular/normal posting to resume Wednesday or Thursday!
1. What was your high school superlative (if you didn’t have one- what would it have been)?
Unless they have one for Most Invasive/Probably Knows Your Biz-niss (Even If You Don't Want Her To), I probably wouldn't have gotten one. I was the journalism girl, and happy as it. A couple handfuls wrote me in for Best Hair, but that's just because it was ridiculously long.
2. What sports did you play in high school?
HA--oh, I'm sorry, I was imagining me moving and being active. Sure. Believe you me, sports played zero part of my life unless I had to edit an article concerning one of them or write the Athletes of the Month feature.
3. What was the best part about your wedding (if you’re not married yet, what are you looking forward to)?
I'm kind of...not a girl. Because I don't think about my wedding. I have a drafted post about how up until a year or so ago, I didn't even think I'd get married. There are lot of details about weddings I like, but I don't really ever think or plan mine. I know a lot of girls who pretty much have all theirs done with just Insert-Groom-Here left, but...meh. Seriously, if it ever happens, I love decorating and planning decorations. I'm sure I'll be driven absolutely batty with all the details, but I look forward to conceptualizing the theme/decor. YEP, of all wedding things, it's that. I can tell you I'm not looking forward to writing vows, because I'm way wordy and can't be concise for anything. (As evidenced by this response. Sigh.)
4. It’s your last meal– what Appetizer, Soup, Salad, Entree and Dessert would you choose?
Shoot man, that's depressing. Um...in order: authentic bruschetta, no soup (bleh), caprese salad (IT COUNTS), pizza margherita (the authentic, legit Italian kind, not this sorry American excuse for pizza), and a simple Liege Waffle from Belgium (NOT to be mistaken for a Belgian/Brussels Waffle).
5. What song is your guilty pleasure?
Only one? Oh Lawd...I have an entire playlist called "Be Ashamed" for this. How about...Demi Lovato - Catch Me.
6. What is your favorite professional sports team, and why do you like them?
I'm not really diehard fan for anyone, but of course I cheer the SD Chargers and SD Padres. I have a soft spot for the Anaheim Angels (and no, MLB, I refuse to call them their current league name, fuckyouverymuch). I can tell you I definitely do not support the Yankees (sorry Sarah, it will never change), the Dodgers or the SF Giants; nor the Oakland Raiders (BOO I HATE YOU FOREVER RAIDER NATION), Dallas Cowboys, Pittsburgh Steelers, or SF 49ers. And even though I hate basketball, I will never, ever, ever support the Lakers.
7. What is your favorite reality show and why do you like it?
So You Think You Can Dance. Because it's dancing, and storytelling, and amazing choreographers who I would love to work with (even though I don't dance anymore...details, details), and normal people, and sometimes even people I know and am friends with.
8. How would you classify your home decorating style (modern, classic, french country)?
Deeefinitely classic. Victorian or French, mostly...a bit of Tudor style (but I don't like patterns, so...that's limiting), and for sure Georgian architectural elements. Yeah, pretty much let me live in an Austen or Alcott novel, and I'll be good.
9. Pizza- deep dish or thin crust? White sauce or red sauce? What toppings?
Thin crust, red sauce, fresh round mozzarella, some basil and a bit of olive oil...best. ever. But if I have to stop being a pompous a-hole about pizza (it will never happen), I can settle for a regular crust, red sauce, cheese with bacon and onion pizza.
10. Favorite weekend getaway within a two hour driving radius?
I guess it depends on my mood, but I'd have to say Laguna Beach/Corona del Mar or Los Angeles. One's relaxing, the other is entertaining.
