It's all about me!

What is your favorite brand of jeans?

I have no idea, I've never paid attention. I wish I knew though, because I desperately need some new ones right now. All my nice comfortable and cute jeans ripped at the same time. Just when I could fit into them again. Jean shopping with three kids isn't really very productive... and this time of year, not really a priority.

What is your favorite restaurant? What do you get there?
Johnny Carino's.. though I think the name is now changed to Carino's Grill or something like that. The Chicken Marsala is my absolute favorite, artichoke hearts and chicken medallions... oh, it is to die for.

What is your current favorite song?
hmmm... I've been loving the soundtrack to Across the Universe. My kids favorite is to sing Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds at the top of their lungs. They like that it has Lucy's name in it. She thinks its hilarious.

What's your "type"?
I have always had a crazy weakness for curly hair. Nice broad shoulders are very attractive too, I don't like a scrawny guy.
Is that what you ended up with?

What is something unusual about you?
Take your pick. I dislike Santa, despise Mickey Mouse, and don't scrapbook even a tiny little bit. I could go on, but I won't.

How do you describe your everyday style?
Whatever is clean. Usually pretty darn casual. I like comfort. Occasionally I feel like 'dressing up' and will wear a more fitted t-shirt, and jeans that show off my nonexistent butt. Those are the days I wear makeup too. When I get around to it.

What were the last three movie you saw? How were they?
I don't see movies in the theater very darn often anymore.
Iron Man – loved it. I'm glad that Robert Downey Jr. is back in movies, he's excellent.
Kung Fu Panda – Hilarious. Yay for a kid movie I like as much as my kids do.
Get Smart – Is anyone who loves The Office surprised at how funny this was... no, of course not.

What are your favorite TV characters?
Everyone on The Office. I can't think of a single show that has better characters. All of them are chock full of quirkiness and hilarity.

What was the last book you read? How was it?
Empire, by Orson Scott Card. Good, not my favorite of his, but thats not a bad thing as he is one of my favorite authors. Its not his usual style... this is more of a John Grisham type book, political action thriller sort of thing. Very well written, with an intelligent plot, and decent characters.

You are asked to bring your best dish to a party, what do you make?
Hmmm... Maybe my spaghetti. Not your standard stuff, I make it spicy with sausage and chicken, and put cheese in the sauce. Its horribly fattening and bad for you, but it tastes oh, so good.

What qualities do you find attractive in your significant other or a prospective one?
He makes me laugh, and is my best friend in the whole world. He is witty and intelligent and well read as well as being incredibly talented and creative with music. I love his striking green eyes, curly hair and dimples when he smiles. He is so, so, so sweet to me, he works really hard for us, and is a really good Daddy. I will spare you all the rest of my sentimentality... I could go on and on, but it feels rather PDA-ish.

Is there a song that everytime you hear it, it reminds you of a certain memory? What is it and why?
Not really. I have some that remind me of certain times in my life, but not an exact memory.

What is your worst vice?
Like I'm going to list it HERE! I don't know and I don't want to expend the effort it takes to run through my bad habits and faults and shortcomings and pick which of those is the most repugnant and then BLOG about it for all the world to see.

Yeah yeah, being materialistic is bad. What is your favorite THING you own right now?
Honestly, I really don't know. Probably the camera I'm going to get for Christmas!

Coke or Pepsi?
I'm not a big cola person. Pepsi if its plain. But I also really like a Coke with Lime.

Beach, Mountains, Big City, Country, or Desert?
Mountains. Big, cragged and monolithic.

Whats your favorite Candy?
Foreign chocolate is the best, European, Canadian, whatever, its all better than American. But I do love Symphonie bars with toffee in them. ..and candy of any sort of the gummy variety. Mint M&M's should also be available all year.

If you could dress your significant other (or prospective mate), how would you dress them?
He's pretty acquiescing when it comes to that.. and I don't care that much either. Sometimes I buy him clothes, and when I do he wears them.

What is your favorite dessert?
Ice cream. hands down. and its not just a dessert, its belongs in its own separate food group.

Whats your least favorite fashion trend?
ugh, there are so many! Skanky clothes for little girls is probably at the top of my list.

How much did you love doing this??
I didn't LOVE it, it but if I really hated it I wouldn't have done it at all. So if you like doing this sort of thing, you're tagged.
