I was tagged to answer the following questions given to me by til-kingdom-come3313. I’ve always loved to answer questions [about myself…I’m a Leo] because it reminds me of my pre-teen self on AOL or my teen self on Livejournal. Here goes:
1. Bacon or sausage?
I’m not much of a meat eater, so I usually prefer my breakfast sides to be, like, hash browns or toast with grape jelly. However, if I have to choose, I’ll say bacon.
2. Who inspires you the most and why?
I really get emotional about people who have overcome significant obstacles. For instance, people (most times women and/or racial minorities) who are able to beat the demons they have faced. I also always get overwhelmed by racers at my husband’s triathlons who compete with physical or mental disabilities — with or without aid. It’s truly incredible and touches me deeply.
3. Favorite book and why?
There’s something about Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild that makes me very nostalgic. I read it several times when I was little, and I loved everything about it. There are three girls, all adopted into a once-wealthy family who now has to work hard to make ends meet. Each girl has a talent/gift (acting, intelligence, ballet) that they use to grow in their own lives and contribute to their family. Mostly I loved it because I wanted to see myself in each of the girls.
4. Favorite TV series and movie on Netflix?
Currently on Netflix, eh? You can never really go wrong with Buffy the Vampire Slayer (was a religious viewer and fan since it came on air when I was 10 years old) or Scrubs (so funny and yet so sad at times). Forrest Gump and Hook are also undeniable gems.
5. What’s your best quality?
My determination and ability to choose happiness. It’s something I learned how to do about five years ago, and I am extremely proud of that change in my life.
6. What do you want most out of life?
Happiness. Love. To enjoy moments. To remember to treasure the ones I love while I still have them. And to touch my husband’s butt a lot.
7. Top 3 on Bucket List.
Very thrilled to report that my Top 3 are almost all checked off! They were marry a good man (exceeded expectations), travel to Europe (thanks, honeymoon), and have a baby (just 3.5 more weeks).
8. Where do you want to settle down?
My husband and I really love where we live now, which is in Fairhope, Alabama. We are trying to design our “Forever Home” to build here one day. But we would love to travel more in the future, too.
9. Favorite Robin Williams movie?
I REALLY love Hook. To this day, I’m always “Bangarang”ing or telling people, “You’re doing it, Peter! You’re doing it!” Pan’s the man.
10. Coffee or Tea?
11. Say you won a Mega Millions lottery…What do you do with the money?
Build the aforementioned house, make sure our family is all set, and then there would be some SERIOUS animal rescue being done. It’s my biggest passion, and I would love to be able to help fund some amazing things that could enable the saving of animals. My dogs saved me, and I owe it to them to give back.
I tag anyone who would like to answer questions during their boredom. Same questions as above!
