OK, so after the heavy dose of venom last time, i've decided to be silly here. i took these questions from mannland 5 (via the daily dose of reality). here we go...
1 - Why did you start blogging?
i started blogging to take some thoughts i'd been having about my life and extrapolate them to their logical extremes (and beyond, in some cases).
2 - Who's the one blog friend that you would want to meet most in "real life"?
ooh, tough one - they're all so amazing! if i had to pick, i'd say the foggy dew. really, though, i'd like to meet everyone i read. interesting, smart people all.
3 - Why are you always concerned with losing that "extra 10 pounds" when chances are your husband/boyfriend/friends tell you that you look just fine the way you are?
haha. funny you should mention that; i was just thinking about weight loss and appearance. in my case, there's an element of schadenfreude at work here. i'd always been a big girl. now that i'm not so big anymore, i feel like the skinnier i get (and the more attention i get because of it), the more i can drive the demons of the old days away. within reason, of course.
4 - What's the one thing you wish guys could understand about you?
a sincere compliment, a hug and a good joke will carry you SO far with me.
5 - Tattoos. How many do you have and how many are visible when you wear your "everyday" clothes?
as of this moment, 1 - not visible with everyday clothes. soon to be two, though; my "if the saints win the super bowl" thing was a fleur-de-lis tattoo somewhere.
6 - What was the best year of your life and why?
hmm. 1998 was an amazing year for a lot of reasons (high-school graduation, starting college, a couple of good relationships). it remains to be seen if 2010 will top it, though. so far, so good. the 2009-10 academic year has probably been the best academic year of my life.
7 - Name three things you would do if you were a man for one day.
1) go to the mechanic's, just to see if there's any difference in treatment
2) attend a formal in a tux (i'm so tired of dates bitching about how uncomfortable they are, as i stand there in a dress, heels and freaking pantyhose)
3) try to get laid :)
8 - What's your alcoholic drink of choice that usually raises a few eyebrows?
no doubt, it's the monsoon. (thanks, three years of living in louisiana!) we call it "drunk in a cup." light rum, dark rum, pineapple juice, grenadine and sour mix. oh, so yummy.
