Questions (a grand total of 19, from the other blogs):
What’s your favorite thing about blogging?
The people and the practice. There are some amazing humans out there, if you aren’t aware, and I love hearing what they have to say. Also, I think it’s good practice with interaction—they say to write for yourself, but blogging lets you take some risks with what you want to say and practice with more immediate feedback than you’ll get with a novel.
What are three things you can’t live without?
Food, water, shelter.
What was the last movie you watched? Did you enjoy it?
Movie? Dead Poets Society with my English class, and my feelings died, as they always do with that movie. TV show? Leverage, and my feelings died, as they always do with that TV show.
If you could be a character from any novel, who would you be and why?
I wouldn’t be. I would rather die.
What’s your favorite animal? Why?
Sting ray. They are smooth and slippery and nice to touch, and it is fun to feed them fish at the aquarium.
What is the ultimate dream vacation? (It could be to a fictional or real place.)
I might like to visit Madrid again, or England, or anywhere… I don’t know. Honestly, I would probably be happiest buying a hotel room in my own town and just staying there all day.
What was your favorite childhood TV show?
Barney, Arthur, Cyberchase, Dragon Tales, Sagwa, Tellytubbies, Liberty’s Kids, Fetch! with Ruff Ruffman, and—what? What do you mean you wanted one?
If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to? Why?
1997. I have no memories of myself as a baby and so this would be an age that I have no memory of but it would be interesting to watch myself as I started to do things for the first time.
Can you solve a rubix cube?
What kind of music are you into?
I DUNNO. I listen to a lot of stuff. My dad has suggested that someday I commandeer a radio station and freak all the listeners out who are expecting one genre, and then they get ten in the space of 15 minutes.
Who would you want to play you in a movie about your life?
No one. I do not want a movie about my life.
What First World problem would you solve?
People wouldn’t have flooding in their houses ever.
You have the magical power to create any one drink you want. ANY. Which drink?
Orange juice. The no-pulp kind. And I would drink it. :)
Best life hack you've learned?
You can put bread bag hold-closers on wires so you can tell what computer wire does what!
Ice cream or cake?
…….. Ice cake cream.
Chocolate or coffee?
Chocolate, duh. Coffee is not for me.
Which tribute in the 75th Hunger Games would you sponsor and why?
When is the 75th Hunger Games? Sorry. I only read this book once in middle school because it was not very interesting.
Weapon of choice?
*shrugs* Do you think my family lets me hold weapons for long periods of time?
