in which i answer questions

All the Wine did this fun interview thinger, and I wanted to play! She sent me some questions and my answers are below. If you want to play too, comment saying so and I’ll come up with some questions for you! Here are the official rules:

1. leave me a comment saying you want to be interviewed.
2. I’ll email you five questions, of my determination not yours!
3. You update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

And here are my questions and answers:

1. You’ve won a walk-on role on your favorite television show and you get to suggest the new character you play. Which show and what type of character?
Well, both of my favorite shows are no longer on the air and I don’t really watch tv anymore, so I don’t know if that would be possible. But, for the sake of the question, let’s pretend that they are doing one more show, just for me! In that case, it would definitely be Gilmore Girls. Since at the end of the show, Rory was heading out to be a campaign reporter, I would most likely enter as a photographer on the campaign trail, and we would obviously become best friends. And then she would bring me back to Stars Hollow to meet all the crazies, and I would never leave because it would just be too cool.

2. If you could only eat three things for the rest of your life, what would they be?
That is difficult. I really like food, so I’m not sure I could pick. I’m just going to go with the first three things that popped into my head: chocolate m&ms, apples and cheese. Yummy separate, yummy together. Good choices, I think. Note that I’m a lazy cooker, so I obviously chose foods that you don’t need to prepare!

3. How would you describe your personal style?
Oh, man. I have no idea. For the most part, I’m a jeans and t-shirts kinda gal. I like sneakers and ballet flats, but not high heels. I’m happy to dress up when the occassion calls for it. I shop mostly at GAP and Target. I guess, if I had to label it, I would say my style is comfortable, casual and simple.

4. If you had a time machine, what historical event or time would you go back to witness?
I’d like to head back to Renaissance-era Italy. Maybe make friends with da Vinci or Michelangelo or Botticelli. Just to see all of that amazing art come into being (and not crackling and peeling and behind glass cages) would be pretty freaking awesome.

5. If you could live anywhere besides Arizona, where would you live and why do you say so?
Italy! When I lived there for my study abroad program, I simply fell in love. The people, the places, the way of life… it’s just everything I wish my life could be. Plus, I am Italian, and a big part of me is drawn to the idea of bringing my family back to Italy.
Thanks for the awesome questions! Comment if you want to play!!

in which i’m not

i’m not afraid to try new things (except find a new hairdresser!). i’m not a person who believes in having regrets. i’m also not someone who wants to look back over my life and think “why didn’t i do that when i had the chance?”. i’m not particularly cool or hip, and i’m not bothered by that at all. i think i’m interesting and fun, and i guess that’s all that matters in the end.

i’m not willing to give up on friendships that really mean a lot to me, no matter how angry we get at each other. i’m not okay with it when one friend tries to turn me against another. i’m not good at picking sides… in fact, i never do it.

i’m not necessarily an easy person to really get to know. i’m not a fan of being very open about my life, especially anything really personal or painful to talk about. i’m not afraid to share silly stories or even embarrassing ones, but the painful ones are just too much unless you are one of my best friends. i’m not good at asking for help, and most of the time, i don’t mind being like that.

i’m not as much of a social butterfly as i was in college. nor as much of a drinker. i’m just not as attracted to the whole bar scene as i used to be. perhaps that will change when i move back east, closer to good friends. i’m not a fan of fancy drinks. i’m not one to order wine or champagne or anything with more than two ingredients.

while i’m perfectly comfortable hanging out with a big group of people, i’m not likely to get up in front of them to perform something, due to debilitating stage fright. therefore, i’m not likely to rock karaoke in front of you unless you’re one of my closest friends or i am completely smashed.

i’m not a good person to go to a baseball game with, since i find it insanely boring and will usually pull out a book within twenty minutes. i’m also not a good person to watch soccer games with, since i will be so engrossed in the game that there is a good chance i won’t hear a word you say.

i’m not particularly good at blogging consistently. i’m also not good at being active on forums and networking websites. i tend to join them, and then forget that i’ve joined them.
i’m not a person who trusts easily or forgives quickly. oddly enough, i’m not good at holding grudges or staying actively angry for a long time. i’m not good at controlling my temper when i’m really upset.

i’m not necessarily lonely, although i’m not particularly enjoying being the sole single lady among my closest girlfriends. i’m not good at dating, as i’ve never really done it. i’ve had boyfriends, but never really gone out on dates with someone who wasn’t already my boyfriend. i’m also not very good at being a girlfriend, since i tend to be too independent-minded… at least for the people i have been in relationships with thus far.

i’m not a morning person at all. i’m not a pleasant person before i’ve had coffee. i’m not a fan of having my ears touched by anyone but me. i’m not a fan of yogurt or baked goods with fruit chunks in them… i actually can’t eat them without gagging.

i’m not a fan of will ferrell. no matter how funny everyone says they are, i refuse to watch elf or anchorman. i’m not even a little bit ashamed to admit that i love britney spears and i bought her new album already. i’m also not ashamed to admit that i like to read fanfiction, especially harry potter stories that take place after the end of book seven. i’m not particularly into celebrity gossip, but i do enjoy an intouch weekly every once in a while. i’m not very into television. give me friends or gilmore girls reruns, and i’m a happy camper.

i’m not sure where i’ll be in six months, let alone five years. i’m not quite sure if that terrifies or exhilirates me.

saw this idea at kyla bea*, and thought i’d give it a go! it was fun, but really hard to come up with things to say.

*i guess now she’ll know that she’s on my reader, even though i’ve never commented there. hi kyla bea!
