Alright homeskillets, I decided that you wonderful people deserved to know a bit more about me so here we go:
Do you have any pets?:
I have 2 dogs and 1 snake. The pooches names are MoneyPenny, my super sweet Great Dane, and Chance, my flooferpoofers. Ok, so flooferpoofers isn't a breed; I know. He's a Border Collie/ Husky, i just call him flooferpoofers or flooferbutt. My fiance tells me this isn't manly and will give him a complex and tells me I need to give him a manly nickname like Whiskerbiscuit. I told him if he forces me to sacrifice flooferpoofers I will call him foofoocuddlypoops; he decided flooferbutt was acceptable. Penny eats everything in sight (including that in the pantry) and Chance cries like he's in pain when he gets excited. Apparently, it's a husky thing. I think he does it to see if the neighbors will think I abuse him and sneak him treats.
What are your favorite foods?
I love things that are bad for me. So, cupcakes top my list (obviously). There's a cupcakery in town and the cupcakes will give you foodgasms. Seriously. Next to that I love me some Mama Roni's pizza rolls. No, these are not Totinos, these kiddos are the real thing, and the real thing is delicious! I also love cheese. Just cheese. If it is cheese and is made from cow, I pretty much guarantee I want to stroke it and love it and have it's baby. Except for swiss. Not a fan of swiss. Save for that, give me a block and a knife and I'll be happy as a fat kid at a buffet ( and yes, I do realize that isn't pc. I just don't care).
Favorite Ice Cream?
Ben n Jerry's Thin Mint Cookie, although the limited edition Key Lime Pie is a close second.
See, now this one always gets me because I love movies. I watch a ton of movies. My favorites, though, tend to be the classics. I can't help it, I just love movies where people spontaneously burst into song and dance and no one seems to think it's abbienormal (please, someone get that movie reference). I figure that has to do with my grandma. Before she floated off into the great musical of the beyond we would have a classical movie marathon every time I came to visit. My favorite movie is My fair Lady. Followed closely by anything else either Audrey Hepburn or Rogers and Hammerstein did. Now, I must also give mad props to Stardust (which is amazing) and Ever After (what can I say, I'm a sucker for a happy ending). I must also add in here that I looooove Star Wars and Lord of the Rings. I know it is exceptionally dorky, but I adore them. In fact, I adore them so much that I found a friend to share the dorkiness with. She has purple hair, several piercings, wears vegan footwear and carries a lightsaber in her car in case she ever needs to have a spontaneous fight to protect the force at a stoplight.
Favorite TV Shows?
Well, this one's a toughie because I don't actually have cable. No, I'm not a freak, I'm just a busy girl who rarely has time to watch tv. However, when I do have time or when netflix graces me with dvd happiness, I watch Bones, True Blood, Burn Notice and have also seen all the episodes of Buffy and Angel. What can I say, I have a soft spot for corny dialogue and ridiculous effects ( I blame you Bruce Campbell).
Makeup? Yay or nay?
I love make-up, almost as much as I love books. Which is why I have a beauty blog as well. I don't see make-up as a way to hide things or fix things nor do I see it as a way to change yourself into something else. I think of it as art for your face. I love that I can play with colors and blending and shapes and create different looks. I love that at halloween I can use it to make myself look dead or look like an evil fairy. I think it's amazing that you can make someone's face look wider or thinner with bronzer or concealer. I just think make-up is fun. No, I don't wear it everyday. In fact, most days I don't wear anything at all. I mean nothing. I generally am too lazy to even put in my contacts, let alone take time for silly things like concealer or mascara. I do make-up on the odd days when the mood strikes me, but I have fun when I do.
What are your favorite genre of books?
I love romances. I can't help it. They're like little clouds of happiness for me. I love happily ever afters and silly mis-communications. I love alpha males and independent females. The world is serious enough as it is and I love books that let me escape and romances do that for me. I love the romance genre in general, but my favorite sub-genre is paranormal romance. I know most people automatically go "Twilight! Gah! Silly Vampires!" but it's not all vampires. Honestly, even the ones that are vampires are still really good. Also, since it's been mentioned, I did read the twilight series and have seen the movies. They're not terribly well written, but they are cute and I do understand they're draw. Save for the first movie, the movies aren't bad either. In fact, this last one was pretty good. Although, I have to admit the first one had to be one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Ever. God that wig was awful. Almost as awful as the choppy scenes and terrible effects. Almost. I did buy it though; however I will point in reference to my love for B-grade movies with bad dialogue above. Which is why, you shall notice over time, about 90% of my reviews are likely to be romance novels.
Alrighty then, well it's now well past my bedtime, so you shall have to wait in anticipation for the next installment of "Me: The Things No One Gives A Crap About". Toodles
