As I attempt to digest this meal

and procrastinate on sending an email I’ve decided to fill out a silly little questionnaire all about me that I found on my new favorite site: American Black Chick in London. She is totally my friend in my head.

Yes. I’d be so much more organized.

If you could change your name, what would you change it to?

I’ll go with what she said: “Since I really like food, I would prefer not to destroy my taste buds. Add three more zeros on the end of that and then talk to me.”

* * * * * * * * * * * * DUMBOLOGY* * * * * * * * * * * * * *****

Many, at least a dozen. My feet are wide so it can be hard to find shoes that fit.

Umm…I think my friend Eboni on Monday night.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * RANDOMOLOGY* * * * * * * * * * * *****

First place you went this morning?
Into the kitchen to thaw the puff pastry while I meditated.

What’s the last movie you saw?
New: Waiting for Superman. TV: Moulin Rouge, which, while we’re on it. I love that movie. I own that movie. I wish I could live in that movie but I still don’t understand why Nini says what she says to the Duke. It seems so out of left field.

Do you smile often?
All the time.

Do you always answer your phone?

If you could change your eye color, what would it be?
Ooooh, maybe something totally off the wall, like purple. Is that a thing? Because yes, that.

Have you ever had a pet fish?
A series of goldies, all named after people on K.I.D.S. Inc.

Favorite Christmas song(s)?
All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey, though I’m a big fan of Christmas music in general. It’s the only thing that I find bearable about the Christmas season.

What’s on your wish list for your birthday?
What she said: “A job. I need to make that money to pay off student loans and I don’t feel like perfecting my ho stroll.”

Can you do push ups?
Yes. I’ve been working on superslow ones recently.

Can you do a chin up?
Would there be cake involved?

Does the future make you nervous or excited?

Do you have any saved texts?
Yes. I’m a bit of a keeper.

Ever been in a car wreck?
Wreck sounds so intense. I’ve been in 2 crashes: one where I was the passenger and one where I was the driver. Neither where the car I was in was at fault.

Do you have an accent?

What is the last song to make you cry?
“Warning Sign” by Coldplay.

Plans tonight?
Digest Thanksgiving dinner. Eat more. Consider grad school. Meditate. Procrastinate on writing that email.

Ever felt like you hit rock bottom?
“… I’se still goin’, honey,
I’se still climbin’,
And life for me ain’t been no crystal stair”

Have you ever been given roses?
Maybe at graduation? It’s not a clear memory though, so, probably not.

Current hate right now?
Nothing, but there are loads of things I find frustrating (e.g. the dearth of U.S. working holiday visa programs, the status of my bank account, that most cars–mine included–still run on fossil fuels, geometry, the email that I am procrastinating responding to, factory farms,  BET, etc.)

Met someone who changed your life?
Well here’s some trivia (as if the rest of this hasn’t been?): there have been 3 boys who have had a profound impact on me and they all have the same name, 2 of them in fact, have the same initials. And their birthdays are within 2 weeks of each other.
Yeah, that’s not weird. There’s actually a 4th too but he–you know what? We can just file this under: Reasons I Believed I Was Cursed.

How did you bring in the New Years?
I think I stayed at home? Such a memorable night apparently.

Would you go back in time if you had the chance?
Yeah and I’d make sure that I studied abroad during undergrad.

Have you ever dated someone longer than a year?

Do you have any tattoos/ piercings?
Just ears and nose, for now. Definitely have plans for more.

Does anyone love you?
Yes, though I was just thinking it’s funny how we discount the dozens of people who do when one person doesn’t.

Would you be a pirate?
I don’t feel like pirates eat well.

What songs do you sing in the shower?
All of them.

Ever had someone sing to you?
Megan Hilty, but then, I already told that story.
