Your Questions Answered - Part 1 of 3


Jess asked "What are the main stores that you shop at? What are the main stores you would shop at if money were not an issue? What stores do you never ever go near? Yeah, I know, I'm materialistic."

Ah clothes shopping. One of my favorite ways to waste time! My favorite stores for work clothes? Maurices, B. Moss, Express. For casual clothes? American Eagle, Old Navy, Target. If money were no object? Ann Taylor Loft, Banana Republic.

Stores I would never go near? Motherhood Maternity. What? It could rub off on me. I kid, I kid - one day I will shop there. I usually avoid Sears and J.C. Penney's, but once and awhile I can find something in style ;)

Courtney wanted to know "Favorite candy bar ever? Favorite Halloween Costume over the years?"

3 Musketeers hands down. My favorite Halloween costume as a kid was a Hershey's kiss. My grandma made the costume and I won the costume contest at school. Photo evidence to come soon :)

Sara wondered "What kind of hand lotion do you use? Do you have a camera? What kind? Post a photo of your watch. Do you have a paper planner or a Blackberry/Palm. Do you use it?"

I use Avon's Skin So Soft usually. I ordered some from a friend and fear I will never run out. It's not my favorite, but I hate wasting. My camera is a Kodak EasyShare - and I hate it. My dream camera? A Canon Rebel. Someday. I don't wear a watch or use a blackberry or palm pilot. But I did just get a really sweet new cell phone, the TMobile Shadow.

Samantha questioned "What were your favorite toys as a kid and why?"

As funny as it seems (me being a huge klutz and all), I really loved the stilts and pogo stick we had as kids. So much fun. I loved feeling tall!

Julie Q wanted to know "What's your favorite Lip Gloss?"

Right now I'm obsessed with Softlips chapstick in french vanilla. But when I want to look sexy I use Cover Girl wetslicks fruit spritzers, berry splash is my fave.

QueenBee pondered "What's the weirdest dream you've ever had? How many people have you said the "L" word to? What's your favorite: Cats or Dogs? If you could do anything in the world, regardless of education or money, what would you do? What's your favorite type of flower? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?"

One of the weirdest dreams I've ever had was that I was an FBI agent and was trying to deactivate a bomb with three of my closest friends. Yeah, we failed.

I've said the L word to 3 people. I love cats AND dogs. I have 2 cute kitties of my own and if I could have another pet at my condo I would totally get a dog. But I treat Clancy's dogs as my own, anyway. I love those girls.

Regardless of education or money I would be an art teacher. How much fun would that be?

I love pink roses and sunflowers.

In five years I hope that I am still in a successful job, have a house of my own, have travelled overseas, am happy in a relationship (and hopefully married). Most importantly I hope that I'm enjoying life, I really want to LIVE it to the fullest.

Princess Pointful asked "What is the grossest thing you've ever eaten? Closest you've ever came to dying? Who would play you in a movie about your life? First time you got drunk?"

Just the other day I had fish eggs. They were in a sushi roll, so I have a feeling their real taste was masked. :)

In college I travelled with two car fulls of friends to Pittsburgh. It was late, the roads were semi-slippery. The driver of the car lost control, the car spun several times across the highway before coming to a stop, nearly missing the guardrail (which was overlooking a cliff). Scariest moment of my life to date I think. And our friends were in the car behind us watching it all happen.

I would want Jennifer Garner to play me in a movie. She's hot, no?

The first time I got drunk (like really drunk) was at a college dorm party. I passed out upside down on the couch while all my friends laughed at me :)

DG wanted to know "What's the one food that you can't live without and could eat OVER and OVER if you had to?"

CHEESECAKE. All flavors. I could eat it for every meal seriously. And my future wedding cake? Made up of tiny cheesecakes. Yum.

David's question "Which do you prefer: Deserts or Mountains?"

Mountains. They're more majestic. :)

Don't worry, I won't overload you with all of these questions at once (considering it took me 4 months to finally remember to answer them). Part 2 to come next week!

I absolutely love cheesecake! Not to rain on your parade but my dumb dumb doctor told me to stop having cheesecake because it was bad for my cholesterol levels. What do you know dumb dumb doctor! Viva La Cheesecake!

Yoda said...

I just bought my sister a Cannon Rebel for her wedding later this month!

Its awesome :-) I want one too!

elysa said...

this is fun! I have a rebel - jealous? I also am quite in love with cheesecake. 2 of my best friends are art teachers - and one of them makes more money than me. What is that about?!

Libby said...

i can't even remember if i asked you one! lol! guess i will find out!

Making my way in PA said...


I had cheesecake as my wedding cake. The wedding I went to this weekend had pies as their "cake" and it was FABULOUS!

lspoon said...

I cannot believe it has taken you this long to answer these questions. But they are really good answers, so I guess it was worth the wait? :)

dreamgrrl said...

ahh I always want to be able to ask a question but I always blank when it comes time! p.s. I think being an art teacher would ROCK

Rachel said...

Loved all the answers to peoples questions...Can't wait to see the rest! It definitely gives you insight to people and who they are and what they are about.

Jess said...

Wow, I so do NOT remember asking that question. But I liked the answer anyway!

Katyn said...

I STILL have nightmares about that spinout. Scared me to death watching it. I am so grateful it all turned out ok. Life is short.

ChasingParadise said...

Okay first of all, holy crap to your scariest moment ever story. I would have probably peed myself from fear. I'm so glad you and your friends were okay!

It's so weird, but I also had a pogo stick and stilts. I, too, am a total clutz. I could work that pogo stick like nobody's business, but the stilts? Yeah, they kicked my ass. haha.

Noelle said...

I watched the America's Next Top Model season where those girls were selling Cover Girl wetslicks for a whole episode, and at no point was I interested in trying them. But within one sentence of your endorsement, I was thinking, "I should try that, and I don't even like lip gloss."

I guess that has something to do with you being a more trusted source than Tyra Banks.

Kim said...

Loveeee Cannon Rebels!! And now I want cheesecake :-(

Le Petit Chic said...

I love sushi, but always requests my rolls without the roe because it totally grosses me out! Mostly the texture, but the thought of it too!

courtney said...

oh, goodness, Michelle. It's been so long I didn't even remember asking those questions. I had to click on my own name to see if it was really me.

I can't wait to see that hershey's kiss costume. I'm imagining it and it's already too cute for words... :)

L Sass said...

I really want to try that Cover Girl lip gloss (sadly, I know about it because of AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL)-- now I am inspired to pick one up!

Katelin said...

I love 3 Musketeers, they are seriously the best candy bars around.

And Jen Garner, you know how I feel about her, I think she'd play you quite well :)

Deutlich said...

GAH! I've had a swirvey car moment like that too and it is scary as SHIT!

I'm glad you guys were all okay.

Laurie said...

I have yet to try the CG Wet Slicks - but ANTM has gotten me interested too!

I might have to try that too!

Mickey said...

Princess Pointful has an appropriate name. Her questions were the best. Then again, I really just don't have an opinion on lip gloss.

Christa said...

ah - so - many - things - to - comment - on.

love cheesecake mmmm. want a cannon rebel so bad. i liked my kodak easy share till it broke. now i don't know how to use my new camera. i also think it would be great to be an art teacher. was horrified when you guys came back and told the pittsburgh driving story.

this was a super fun game. maybe i should use it as post inspiration...

MrsTwink said...

I feel you on the 3 Muskateers bars, cheesecake and the inability to waste things (like lotion!).

And wow - people ask you some random questions! I love it. :-)

And Jennifer Garner is way hot and seems so nice too.

Princess Pointful said...

Yes, Ms. Garner is hot indeed.
And both your drunk and near-death experiences are way more intense than my own!

Julie Q said...

yay! my deep and spirited question was answered!!! thanks ;)
