More Meme-ry.

I've had a mellow week, so hopefully you'll forgive me - here's another survey meme. You know you love it, don't lie. Also, full disclosure, I might have obtained this survey from one of the same "survey" sites I used back in high school when I used MySpace.  As always, if you feel like doing this (and you know you want to), leave me your link in the comments!


What is your favorite book?  "Under the Banner of Heaven" by Jon Krakauer, "In Cold Blood" by Truman Capote, and "Skinny Legs and All" by Tom Robbins.

What is your favorite movie? Real movies, "Se7en."  TV movies, anything from Mystery Science Theater 3000.

What is your favorite song? It changes, but right now "Don't Think Twice" and "Diamond in the Rough" by Social Distortion/Mike Ness, and "This Light" by Dan Andriano in the Emergency Room.

Who is your hero? Tina Fey. And my husband.  Think that's weird? It's true.

If you could be any character from literature or film, who would you be? Freaking Liz Lemon, DUH. (Rob just said "The question is who would you like to be, not who are you.")

If you could have one super power, what would it be? Flying or the ability to transport to wherever I want.

  1. Haha I love this! You are hilarious. Please do many many more memes about yourself in the future.

  2. postmodern existentialism was my first word too!

  3. I'm doing the survey... :) fun!

  4. haha i totally remember the myspace days of filling out surveys and doing those "bulletins". i secretly really like answering questions about myself in meme-form.
    we have lots of similar answers!

  5. Lol I love it. I'll probably do this tonight after work if I remember. =]

  6. When it says 'how many kids do you want to have' I thought you said mentioned that you didn't want to have any?! Or are you just not wanting any right NOW? I think 2 is a good number. Once you hit three, starts to get super messy and crazy around the house lol!

    I love when you do these things though. I may steal it from you eventually. I used to fill these out ALL the time in high school. Why are they so fun?!

  7. so great! i hope you don't mind i snagged one of your answers. i just couldn't resist since it's EXACTLY what came to my mind when i read the question!

  8. OK, I have to ask. Why is 'Under the Banner of Heaven' your favorite book? I read this in a religion class in college (if I'm thinking of the right book) and while I enjoyed it, I wouldn't consider it to be a favorite so I'm curious about your thoughts and what made such an impression on you?

    Excited to hear your response :)

  9. skinny legs and all! awesome book. great author.

    this was a fun post. i'll let you know if i do it.


Go ahead and leave a comment! You know you want to.
