preface: this blog is brought to you by the bottle of "bitch" wine that i'm drinking i just polished off. (thanks court)
this post has yet another connection to lilu because she stepped up to the challenge of asking me a series of questions which i will answer below. if you would like to participate check out the rules at the end of the post.

1. Admit the three songs that you are most ashamed of being in LUUUUURVE with.
now i don't think i'm ashamed of these songs because of how much i love them, but some of my friends may be ashamed of how many times i listen to them...
"here's the thing, we started out friends" - kelly clarkson, since you've been gone - i love this song so much, it reminds me of some really good times in north canton.
"you better count your money" - bone thugs n harmony, ghetto cowboy - i know every word to this song - you have time to memorize such things when you are in high school. also, cleveland represent!
"here's, how it goes" - enrique iglesias, escape - this song sums up my senior year of college at university of dayton and dancing to our choreographed routine with all of my best friends. this song will be played at my wedding.

2. What is the first thing you notice about a guy when you meet him? About a girl? How about after they open their mouth; what's the one characteristic they could display that would be an absolute deal-breaker for you, as far as considering a friendship/relationship goes?

hey lilu doesn't this count as like four questions in one?

1. whether they have dark hair or not.
2. what kind of purse she is carrying. i'm a bag snob, shoot me.

3. for the guy, i can tell if he is condescending. for the girl, i don't think i can pin point it - it's like a sixth sense for me. i'm an excellent judge of character and am almost never proven wrong when it comes to it.

4. this answer is the same for a guy and girl... i have a long standing theory that if a person doesn't have any long term same sex friendships it's a major red flag.

3. What is a movie from your childhood years that you absolutely can't resist watching a bit of if you happen across it on TV?
there's quite a few that i simply can't pass by - the sandlot, home alone, goonies, hook, mighty ducks, the little mermaid, sixteen candles, wayne's world, dirty dancing, back to the future (all of them), the neverending story, princess bride and feris bueller's day off.

4. If you had to live in one place for the rest of your life, but you were crazy rich, where would it be? Now how about if you still had to, but after you were magically moved there with the help of fairy dust and animated Disney creatures, you would be incredibly poor?
if i were crazy rich i would still live in cleveland for the rest of my life. i would just travel a whole hell of a lot more - specifically to st john in the virgin islands.
if julia roberts as tinkerbell flew by me while i was swimming with the ariel and i suddenly became poor i would still stay in cleveland. basically being poor sucks, really sucks, so it doesn't matter what city you are in it's going to be miserable. you might as well stay in a city where you know a few people and can get some handouts. see how i think?

5. Which would be harder for you; to tell someone you love them... or that you don't love them back?
other than my family and friends i haven't ever told anyone that i loved them in a serious way. extremely sad, but true.
telling someone i don't love them back? i've been that girl a few times, even if i was lying when i said i didn't.

if you'd like to play along, just follow these instructions:
1. leave me a comment saying, "interview me"
2. i will respond by emailing you five questions. be sure you link back.
3. you will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else.
4. when others comment asking to be interviewed, you will asked them five questions.

  1. I don't care how ridiculous it is - I will sing at the TOP OF MY LUNGS to Kelly's song until the day I die.

    Oh. Yes.

  2. Wouldn't it be great to see The Goonies and some of the other movies from our childhood on the big screen?

  3. First things first, I will scream Kelly Clarkson songs from any hilltop, for seriously. Love her. Even though I am definitely not a "typical" pop music fan.

    Secondly, "Escape" ALWAYS has to be on my music playlist when I'm flying. I have no clue why. There is something immensely calming about that song when I'm (not) pumped up to travel by air.

    Oh, and you can interview me. I'm not much for memes, but I trust that you'll come up with some good sh*t.

  4. Haha sorry for the 4 questions in one! But it was totally worth it because I LOVE this:

    "this answer is the same for a guy and girl... i have a long standing theory that if a person doesn't have any long term same sex friendships it's a major red flag."

    So true!!!

  5. #2, section 4 (phew) I totally agree with this one, if you dont have friends, why would I want to be your friend? That's totally sketchy!

    And, that entire kelly clarkson album is pretty bad ass. I mean, as bad ass as kelly clarkson can be!

  6. I have a bottle of Bitch wine at home just waiting for a special occasion. Maybe while watching the Sandlot - "Don't be a goofus, don't be a goofus..."

  7. I got ROFL when you said the first you notice when seeing a girl is her purse. Same goes for me :P

  8. No mention of Teen Wolf, huh?

    And Mighty Ducks 2 was terrible.

  9. I love alcohol inspired posts.

  10. haha, i can spend 2 hours with a chick and still never notice her purse. i'm not very detail-oriented like that :-)

    SO TRUE about the long-term single sex friends. i know this from experience, unfortunately.

  11. I've actually done that once, told a guy that I love him when I didn't really. Cared for him, but didn't love him and didn't want to hurt his feelings.

  12. Hi! Newish reader here... Just have to say that I was/am also a big fan of BTH! Now I will have Ghetto Cowboy in my head all day! I had a bf in high school that always played their CD on our way to school... great memories!

  13. I am heading out for vacation tonight, and will have my laptop and lots of booze in a cabin in the woods.

  14. Sandlot and Princess Bride are two of my favorites!

    I nearly cried when I saw they made a Sandlot 2.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ooh! You can interview me! I won't hold back, I promise.

    I loved Neverending Story as a kid. I still can't quite figure it out though. Why does she need a new name? And what name does he shout out?

    Seriously. If you know the answer, please tell me.

  16. Can you say "Take me Home Country Road" by John Denver?

    I am uncool. I am old. I don't care.

  22. Sooo....I think we might be soulmates. I'm 97% sure. I know EVERY WORD to Ghetto Cowboy. But my favorite Enrique song is Hero. (That's the 3%) I'll be a rootin' tootin' shootin' damn fool, protectin' my chips.

    Interview me puhhllleease!
