Ten on Tuesday! Volume 18

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

So, two things to address right quick:

--01--
Making a long and boring story short, I was at this thing that was on the news, and I actually appear in the background. I knew they were around but was trying to dodge the camera man because...I mean, I'm not that comfortable looking in a mirror yet, ain't no way in hell I want to be seen on TV!  But alas, the camera man caught me. And whatever, I accept this, it's like .3 seconds and it was on the 5:30 news and who the hell watches that?! (If you do, don't tell me.)  What does upset me is that the first time I'm on TV...and it's for FOX NEWS?! SERIOUSLY?! I am mortally and morally against Fox News. I can't believe my ugly mug has appeared on that abomination of a channel.

--02--
Can we just take a moment of silence for the death of my 15-year-old self?  Orlando Bloom is now...*sob*...married.  My teenager self is in serious mourning over this.
....until my adult self catches up and reminds me Joseph Gordon-Levitt is still very much available.  Hope...

1. How do you take your coffee on an average day? How do you like your coffee if you’re splurging?
I don't drink real coffee, only those girly bitch drinks.  Depending where I am, I'll usually get an iced caramel latte, some sort of frozen drink, or a mocha.

2. What is your genre of books to read?
Anything fiction. Usually just Popular Fiction, other times Chick-Lit or YA or sometimes even some Fantasy.

3. Where do you want to retire, if you could go anywhere?
France. If it has to be in the US though, I'm down for Pelican Hill (this is money-no-object, right?).

4. The 17-year-old you is told to write a 10-minute speech. What topic would you have picked?
I prooooobably would have refused the speech somehow. I'm not so great with public speaking (I can do it, I simply prefer not to), and my 17-year-old self managed to get my way out of a lot of things.  And you all thought being a Teacher's Pet was a bad thing...

5. What word describes you best?
Listening.

6. What is the next “event” that you are looking forward to? (ex.: vacation, moving, date, job change, etc)
Now that comic-con is over (boo hiss!), I guess...I dunno. LA to see Forever-Roommate/Best Friend for the first time in a very long while--assuming that happens next month as planned.  If not, I'm super looking forward to September and colder weather and Winter.

7. Do you like to discuss controversial topics or do you prefer to avoid those types of conversations?
It depends on the topic, but generally I refuse to discuss them.  For a variety of reasons, though mostly because they make me uncomfortable.  I'll listen no problem(ish...don't push it), but I won't actively discuss.  Unless it is concerning any of the 3 things I do actually care about (gay marriage, how ebooks are terrible and the plight of public education funding).

8. Would you rather add 4 free hours to each day, or add 1 extra day to the week?
Four free hours to each day, because adding 1 entire whole day would make me feel the need to work for 6 days a week.

9. If you created a sports team; what would your colors and mascot be?
Oh my...I'm so uncreative! I have no idea.  I would say a penguin because I'm slightly obsessed, but I don't quite find them to be particularly intimidating--which probably wouldn't be good for a mascot.

10. If you had to be a teacher, what subject would you teach?
I taught journalism in high school, which I really loved.  Journalism, English, or, honestly, Art History.

About Me

My photo
I'm fairly obsessed with penguins, Peanuts (the comic), and the TV show Friends. Parentheses may or may not be (over)used in this blog, and books will pretty much be the only thing I ever talk about because they are my One True Love.
