I only blog when my post is basically written for me

Dont all good blog posts start out with a really obviously edited picture of the blogger's face?
Too bad.

Once upon a time I turned into a horrible blogger and started posting only like, once every two or three weeks. This made me very sad because I genuinely love blogging and I have a billion and two things to blog about (that's not true, I think I only have like, six) but I'm having a really hard time sitting down and getting the posts perfect enough to publish. And my standards are extremely low so if I'm not posting then you just know anything I have in my drafts reeks of suckage. So you're welcome for protecting you from that.

Anyway, the other day my lovely friend Lindsay posted a questionnaire and then tagged some people who she wanted to answer some questions she asked and by some miracle she tagged me and now I present to you this list of totally random questions.

Don't say I never gave you anything.

If you could only read one book over and over and over and over again for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?

...geez, Lindsay, thanks for starting out with something so simple that requires absolutely zero thought at all NOT. For some reason I'm totally blanking on every book I've ever read and I can't come up with an answer. I think I'm going to go with The Lord of the Rings, because there's so much information in it that I think it would keep me busy and entertained for a very long time.

Also because if I remember correctly (which I almost always do) there's a song about Tom Bombadil that I could spend the rest of my life setting to music. And yes, I would vlog it OMG stop being so demanding.

What’s the happiest memory you can think of? What makes it so special?

This is like, another really difficult question. I feel like there's a "right" answer and that it should involve Keith. But honestly, one of the happiest memories that comes to mind is Christmas 2013, when my whole family was at my Grandma's house and I heard my niece really laugh for the first time. She was three months old and I was changing her diaper, and when I shook my head around she made the most angelic little giggles and tears sprung to my eyes. I'd wanted a niece or nephew for years and to finally have one, and then have her giggle at me at Christmas was just the most wonderful thing ever.

Also this one time when I bought a breakfast burrito and the store's credit card machine didn't work so I got it for free. That was like, really special and delicious.

Quick – you’re going to a fun cooking class with your best friend. What are you dying to learn to cook?

Souffle! Queso! Chocolate chip cookies that are always the perfect consistency! Casseroles! Anything, really! I'm a horrible cook.

What is your favorite song on Taylor Swift’s 1989 album and why? (Hint: the correct answer is “I Know Places”)

My favorite song is "This Love" because I can relate it to Keith's and my (NOT Keith and I's... that is NEVER correct) relationship. Favorite lyrics? Here.

This love is good, this love is bad
this love is alive back from the dead
These hands had to let it go free
And this love came back to me.

I mean hello, we were apart for 4 years and then got back together... could this BE anymore perfect, Miss Chandeler Bong?

Then and now

What would you do if you were the sole survivor of a plane crash?

Well, that would depend upon where I ended up. I'm assuming you're assuming I ended up on an isolate island like in Lost (which I've refused to watch simply because it's basically a rip off of Gilligan's Island), in which case I would search for a cell phone or something I could use to let the rest of the world know where I was. Until I was found, I would probably work out a lot and try to write down everything that happened so when I was found I could write a really detailed story and get super rich once I went back to civilization.

Would you rather battle a man-eating minotaur blindfolded, or take on Homer’s cyclops with no weapons?

It sounds like I'm weaponless in both scenarios so I guess I'll go with the cyclops? I think my strategy would be to climb a rock and jump on his head and stab his eye out really quickly. It's a good thing I'm so coordinated because this is all sounding super easy *yawn* next question?

What is your biggest fear?

Being abducted and tortured. Especially because all the Saw movies and most other horror movies made it seem really easy for psychotic people to abduct innocent women and do terrible things to them.

Also, snakes.

Most importantly, was the dress white and gold or blue and black?

It was white and gold and I've seriously tried SO HARD to see it as blue and black but I JUST CANNOT.


And apparently now I'm supposed to tag people and come up with my own questions, which sucks for the tagees because I really don't feel like i'm good at coming up with questions. It reminds me of when I used to play truth or dare and I hated when people picked "truth" because my questions were always really lame like, "What's the weirdest food you like to eat?" But anyway, here you go:

-What's the weirdest food you like to eat? What made you start liking it? (See what I did there?)
-What's one movie everybody loves that you've never seen? Why haven't you seen it? Do you ever plan to see it?
-What's one beauty product you just can't live without?
-Tell us something people are usually surprised to find out about you.
-What's one thing that can always make you happy?
-What's the worst piece of advice you've been given?
-Tell us about a tv show that you think is extremely overrated.
-What are your favorite blog posts to write? What about to read?

And I'm tagging the following people (but really, anyone is welcome to join. It won't hurt my feelings. It actually might hurt my feelings if you don't participate and do you really want to be responsible for that? Didn't thing so):

Melanie at Ribbons and Rotor Blades
Lauren at Lot 48
Kalyn at Geez Louise
Kristie at Kristie's Blue Jeans
Breenah at By Breenah
Jessie at Just Jessie

Now, go forth and blog and stuff! Bye.


  1. Love this questionairre! Good to learn a little more about you!

  2. How did I never know that you don’t like Lost?! This hurts me in my soul. Also the thing about getting your breakfast burrito for free made me laugh out loud.

  3. Ha! If that's your worst fear, then DEFINITELY don't do what I did and binge watch criminal minds. SUCH A BAD IDEA.

  4. I love that T swizzle song, too. I don't like Lost either! I suck at cooking, too. Duh. We are the same person, basically.

  5. I am totally just now reading this. And I feel like that same blogger. My job just leaves me zero time!!!! But I think I can get back in the blogging game now. You know, just in time for the baby to come and me to fall off again because every mom says how awful the newborn stage is and how I won't sleep and I'll be a zombie and I won't time for ANYTHING.
    Anyway, I have always said that about "Lost" and never watched it as well because, um, hello! Gilligan's Island is the best ever! (My sister has the entire series and I plan to "borrow" it when I see her again).
    And because I'm just now reading this, I'm just now seeing you tagged me. So thank you, because you've given me easy material for tomorrow :)
