I drive a pretty common car (charcoal Corolla), so I don't think that can say much about me. But if you were to peek inside, you'd figure 3 things about me: 1) bit of a neat freak, 2) apparently I drink a lot of water because the only 'trash' in it are water bottles, and 3) why doesn't she label all the CDs she burns? You might also think I'm a secret fatty because I keep a lot of random snacks (Ritz, granola bars, a tube of chips, etc.) tucked into obscure places (center console, door pockets, under seats, glovebox, etc), but it's actually because I always forget to eat, so I have to have food ready when I inevitably start shaking from not eating.
2. To this point, what has been your purpose on this planet?
I'm still discovering this.
3. If you could trade places with any person for any amount of time, who would it be?
Anna Wintour. Simply because I'm incredibly curious about her life and the power she has.
4. What is your favorite kind of cake? If you don’t like cake, what is it about it that you don’t like?
Pound cake or carrot cake.
5. Would you have wanted to live in your parents’, grandparents’ or great-grandparents’ generation or only your own?
As interesting as I'm sure it would have been, no, I like my generation. We take it for granted and we're criticized a lot (which I fully support), but it's a pretty amazing place to be in: we are the bridge to the new technological era, the ones raised in the "old" ways but having to make it and adapt to the "new." It's difficult, but there's nowhere else I'd rather be.
6. Do you have any home remedies for illnesses, cleaning or otherwise?
Not really, at least none that I can think of. I know 5 different ways to stop/treat a bloody nose, though (do NOT tip your head back, whatever you do). Thank you, dry weather and a brother whose sinuses don't know how to function properly.
7. What is your ideal weather situation?
I love love love crisp fall days, where it's just cold enough to make your lungs hurt when you inhale and have to wear a good coat with a scarf and boots, but not freezing enough where all I'm doing is counting the moments until I can find a heater.
8. What is your best attribute (physical or personal)?
Oh dear...I really like my nails? Odd, I know, but I get compliments on them a lot, and I take care of them. So...that's nice. And a personal attribute, I don't know--you'd have to ask someone close to me.
9. Do you text or surf while driving?
Nope. I will sometimes text when I'm sitting at a stop light, but that's rare. And I don't get internet on my phone, and I'd rather not; I love my social network, but I don't find it necessary to be connected all the time.
10. How long have you known your best friend?
Which best friend? The best friend I've had the longest I've known for 12 years now, and my most "recent" best friend I met in 2nd year of college. I miss them both terribly :(

|I don't know what's up with my hair.|
And yes, we are in a pumpkin patch, with cardboard cutouts of fruits and veggies. Jealous?
