featured blogger friday!

Friday, September 5, 2008

[as you are reading this i am driving to canada! toronto specifically, to participate in the toronto international film festival. woohoo! too bad i'm going to have to turn my blackberry off the second i enter our neighbor to the north's territory - which means no twitter celebrity updates like i was planning on - boo. oh well, it'll make monday's post that much better.]

now onto the REAL post....

welcome to a new weekly feature here on cleveland's a plum! every friday i will be featuring a blog that i love by having the featured blogger fill out the survey below. it's all sorts of wrong, potentially inappropriate, and i love it.

i'm all up for making people uncomfortable!

it's still fun though. i hope you all enjoy the feature and learn a bit more about each other in the process.

the first blogger i'm featuring is maxie - one, because i heart her blog and her as a person and two, because she let me feed these stupid questions to her through gchat to find out if they were lame or not.

so without further ado.....

who are you and what is your blog?

My name is Maxie and I blog at i hate so much

where are you typing from?
West F*ckin’ Virginia

how long have you been blogging and what platform do you use?
I’m a wordpress girl, but I’ve changed blogs a few times. In October 2007 I started This is not my life/Break me off a piece of that… fancy feast! Earlier this year I finally settled on my where I am today.

sum up your piece of the internet in one sentence.
Hilarious (sometimes) snapshots of what goes on in my head and life.

are you an anonymous blogger or do you scream who you are from the rooftop?
Somewhere in between. I use my real first name, but try to keep my last name out of things.

do your readers know what you look like?
Yes. I have my facebook badge on my page.

Here’s a picture of me being awesome:

if you could become famous from blogging like dooce would you want to?
Absolutely. It would be weird at first, but I’m all about being a celebrity. Plus this would up my chances of meeting/dating John Krasinski or Mark Paul Gosselaar. Whammy.

so you just drank a bottle of wine alone and you’re sitting at your computer, who are the three bloggers that you email or google talk with?
Did you base this question on my life? I always hit up Alexa (I like to refer to her as Lex Luther), Deutlich, and B2G.

how many blogs are in your google reader?
238—a.k.a. way too many.

if you had $1000 to spend and could only buy one item, what would you buy?
A helicopter. Oh, that’s more than $1000? Then I’d probably get myself 1000 lottery tickets and hope for the best.

what’s your favorite thing to do after 10pm?
Dance my butt off. I’ll go anywhere as long as it has music I can dance to.

top three favorite movies from your childhood.
It Takes Two,
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,
and Kindergarten Cop.

name something random that i could find if i was snooping through your purse/wallet?
Top three awesome things in my purse: a mini speaker for my i-pod—this comes in handy during impromptu dance parties, crest white strips—makes my teeth sparkly and my breath fresh, and a corkscrew—I kind of love wine.

link to a funny you tube video you like.
Just one??? Okay: HERE

wanna share a secret with me, i promise i won’t tell…. <-- that’s a lie, but tell me something anyways.
i’m really, really awesome. oh, that’s not a secret? i suck my thumb when i sleep.

if you could trade places with one blogger for one day who would it be and why?
Probably Crissy
because she’s the QOFE (queen of f*cking everything) and that must be awesome.

who’s your blog crush?
Ben. We recently went on a date
. We’re basically getting married (shhh, don’t tell him that.)

parting words of wisdom?
Hate is the new Love, beotches.

  3. This is fantastic! What a great idea, lady. I'm really looking forward to learning more about my favorites in the coming weeks!

  4. This is a super fun idea!

    It's a way more in-depth shoutout than a little ol' link.

  5. OMG!!! That's me! I'm the QOFE! Thanks Maxie! I can't say I blame ya. I am pretty interesting aren't I?

  6. And I want to do this too! It's really fun! Pick me next, pick me next, pick me next, pick me next.

  7. I already know I'm absolutely going to LOVE this series. Rock on. And Maxie? That photo of you is to die for. You're hysterical.

    Maxie was clearly the perfect choice for the first!

  13. Alexa- This was awesome. I love it! What a great idea.

    Maxie- I love you even more now!

  14. First Ben's blog and now yours.... Maxie sure gets around, huh? ;-)

    I love her and her blog. She's so much fun. I can get caught up in the whole prideful posting, and especially the navel gazing, but she is always doing something fun and posting about that or just posting something fun.

    We should erect a statue in her honor. :)

  15. This is awesome. And I heart that photo of Maxie.

  16. Alexa - This is SUCH a neat idea for a series! I love it!!

    You two ladies are awesome.

  17. I love this idea, and it's one of the few times I've actually really enjoyed reading an internet survey.

    It'll make a good series, for sure.

  18. What a great idea, Alexa

    Ben, do you get around in the blogworld? I seem to remember you getting blogmarried to Jamie a while back? Are you blogcheating with Maxie?

  19. That video with John Mayer is amazing. I've seen it 37 times.

  20. I will have to check out her blog. Yay, I love when I find great new blogs.

  21. This is such an awesome idea. I can't wait to learn about more bloggers :)

  22. Daaaaaaaaaayem Maxie! What an honor!

    But Maxie, you're WAY better than that dbag from the Office. TRUST ME!

  23. *gasp!* Are you implying I'm a blog hussie?

    Cause I am.

    Actually, not true. I just have a lot of love to share.

  24. what a great idea! And a great way to get to know other bloggers. Have fun in Canada!

  25. Hope you have fun here in Toronto! The film festival is a kickin' good time!


  26. Given my recent Respect post, you know I'm loving this new feature of yours. And even better? I'm recently new to Maxie and this totally catches me up to speed with her!

  27. Dude this is an awesome idea! I love it. And I love Maxie, her photo just makes me smile :)
