Random Questions

I'm about to finish the first season finale of The Tudors on Netflix (in love with this show!) then listen to some Friday night Coast to Coast AM. But before I get into that, I thought I'd kill some time with some introspection... a questionnaire, of course. One of the things I miss most about journalism is asking questions. So, I resort to answering my own. Here are some random ones I found via a quick search on tumblr:

Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels?
Yes, you would think I was a product of the Great Depression. I rarely even use them. I'll end up giving them to my Mom or sending them to the nursing home.

Where is your next vacation?
Going on a quick trip to Columbia, MD for Free Fest then Nashville a few days later for our annual Steelers away trip! I also might be going to Boston the week after Halloween- hope I can see Salem & all the witch trial attractions!

What is your “Song of the Week”?
Since Summer is over, "Senseless" by Portugal. The Man. I'm getting so excited to see them at Free Fest! It's been too long!

What's your favorite love movie?
Before Sunrise, Titanic or The Notebook. I love all three. Of course, there are many others. I'm such a girl.

What do you drink with dinner?
Depends on what, when and where I'm eating. Usually water, lemonade, Sprite/Ginger Ale, Diet Coke, beer or wine.

What movies could you watch over and over and still love?
Clueless, Father of the Bride, Steel Magnolias, Old School, Sixteen Candles, Teen Witch... there's a lot.

Favorite kind of sandwich?
Grilled Pepper Jack Cheese Sandwich... mmm! Also tastes great with a dash of cheddar or American cheese in the mix.

When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?
Halloween 1989. My Dad made these pair of dice costumes for my sister and me. One of my earliest memories. I'm surprised this getup didn't give me permanent claustrophobia. I remember being terrified I was going to suffocate!

Do you have any magazine subscriptions?
Elle, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Whirl (Pittsburgh), Health and Details (I somehow get it sent to me for free). I used to be obsessed with my magazines but the internet makes everything seem so dated.

Dance in the shower?
If I'm in a really cheerful mood, excited about where I'm going and a good song comes on. 

Ever used a gun?
No. I hate guns.

Do you think musicals are cheesy?
Yes. With the exception of The Wizard of Oz.

Own any record albums?
Yes. Long before I used cassette tapes, CDs or MP3s, I equated music with my parents' old records. Most of my stuff is oldies (thrift stores in Pittsburgh are gold mines) with a few  contemporary favorites but I'm starting to build up a decent collection.

Ever won a spelling bee?
All the time, back in grade school. I definitely excelled at spelling.

Are you patient?
Yes. I'd say so.

Ever had plastic surgery?
No. Trying to go the "age gracefully" route.

Who was your High School crush?
Other than my boyfriends? If you're talking about 'celebrities'... hmm... I think I had a thing for Rob Thomas from Matchbox Twenty (my first concert). One of my exes actually reminded me a bit of him.

Spring or Fall?
FALL!!!!! I love everything about this time of year. It's idyllic for me. 

Summer or Winter?
Winter! I hate the heat and humidity of the summer. I love the fresh air, watching the snow fall, clothes, Christmas, my birthday, Super Bowl... there's so much more magic!

Have a favorite lyric? 
Not necessarily but here's some that I really like from TVOTR's "Wolf Like Me"...

Dream me, oh dreamer
Down to the floor
Open my hands and let them
Weave onto yours

Feel me, completer
Down to my core
Open my heart and let it
Bleed onto yours

Feeding on fever
Down on all fours
Show you what all the
Howl is for

Now Playing: "Try a Little Tenderness" by Otis Redding

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
