Friday Night Fun: 50 Facts

Truth time: It's Friday night, I'm at home with a nasty case of blogger's block and I stumbled upon this survey. I LOVE things like this (I'm noisy) so I hope you do too. If you do one, please let me know in the comments so I can take a peek! 

1. What time did you get up this morning? 7:30ish...?

5. If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Ye gods, everywhere. Austin, Texas. North Carolina. New Orleans.

13. Where would you visit if you had the chance?  Turkey. Morocco. South Africa.

14. Where would you want to retire? I have several fantasies about the aging process and they all involve me turning into a stereotypical old woman from various films. I either envision a white house on the Plains, with laundry drying in the yard, or a tiny cottage on the Irish seaside. In both versions, I wear a lot of paisley and a scarf on my head.

15. Favorite time of day? I like the mid-morning when I'm focused, caffeinated, and fed. Or, anytime I'm feeling inspired.

18.  Mysteriously, #18 is missing.

19. How many siblings?  Two sisters and a brother.

20. Favorite pastime/hobby?  I like walking, reading, and running up behind my boyfriend and pantsing him, preferably very early in the morning and right before he tries to get into bed at night. Ya know, when he's at his weakest and most irritable.

21. Who are you most curious about their responses to this?  I generally LOVE reading things like this (the last page of Vanity Fair has a fantastic questionnaire) so anyone's really.

22. Bird watcher? Nope.

23. Are you a morning person or a night person? I've always believed I was a night person, but I've realized lately I'm just a watching-tv-into-the-night person.

24. Do you have any pets? Not yet.

25. Any new and exciting news you’d like to share? Yesterday, my boyfriend's mother gave me a lap top! I feel very fancy (and crazy grateful - Thanks, Liz!!).

26. What did you want to be when you were little? Ok, this is so weird. I wanted to be in the Army or the Navy. As an artsy child in an extremely liberal New England community, I think I was attracted to the organization and structure.

27. What is your best childhood memory?  Anytime I spent with my grandmother. She was a hoot. 

28. Are you a cat or dog person?  Either.

We have no shame.

30. Always wear your seat belt?  Yes.

31. Been in a car accident?  No.

Big thanks to Sweets, Erika, and Nicole who first alerted me to these. They're fun, guys!


  1. Another vegetarian, lover of all things chai? I think I just fell for you!

    I filled out the quiz as well!

  2. I laughed aloud when you said your pet peeve was Anne Hathaway because I thought I may be the only person in the US who couldn't stand her as an actress. (Okay, she wasn't bad in The Dark Knight Rises but there was a lot of talent there to compensate too.) Like you, I also didn't start drinking coffee until I was slightly older. I believe it was when I was when I started graduate school, and sunshine and tea just wasn't cutting it in the morning. ;)

  3. Anne Hathaway just called; she's holding number 18 ransom, in a warehouse.

  4. You and Erica are not the only ones who do not like Anne Hathaway. IMHO, she was terrible in Dark Knight Rises. Totally don't understand the acclaim....

  5. Could you please explain the Anne Hathaway thing to me, because she bugs me too, and I can't quite put my finger on the reason why!
