meme...

I was tagged by distracted by shiny objects over at Tidings of Magpies. Here's the rules:

respond and rework
answer questions on your blog
replace one question
tag eight other people.


1: What is your current obsession?
Current obsession, eh? Isn’t that a bit personal? What the heck, we have no secrets here. I suppose my current obsessions are: PB and J sandwiches, Pirates of the Caribbean (my father will agree with me-he’s gotten near to banning any mention of it at all), and looking through all of my past yearbooks.

2: Which item of clothing do you wear most?
Um-underwear? Lol, sorry. Probably my Scout uniform. Since it’s what I wear to work, the button-up shirt and green trousers are what I can be found in a lot.

3: What's for dinner?
I really can’t cook. And since it’s the last week of school, and we’ve got rehearsal tonight, and I’m going to a party-probably Wal-Mart sandwiches or more PB and J (two of my favorites).

4: Last thing you bought?
Gasoline for my car. And it wasn’t my money, which is always so nice.

5: What are you listening to?
I’m listening to the laptop make noises. The whirring of a well-oiled machine. I dunno.

6: If you were a God or Goddess, who would you be?
Me, but taller, skinnier, and pretty.

7: Favourite holiday spots?
I love, love, love Arches National Park, Moab, and the Indian ruins near Dead Horse Point. I love going to the Festival of Lights in Spanish Fork and the Festival of Trees in Salt Lake City at Christmas time. I love Disneyland and New Port Beach. I love going to St. George to see plays at Tuachan and visiting Zion’s National Park. I love Cedar City and the Shakespeare Festival. I love Nauvoo, Illinois and the temple there. I love, love, love, LOVE my grandparents home near Flaming Gorge.

Favourite places in the world? Take your pick. It’s funny how most of them are in my own state.

8: Reading right now?
Just finished the Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson, which was amazing. I’m now reading The Last Battle of the Icemark by someone who’s name I can’t remember.

9: Okay...what were you thinking about just then?
Who wrote The Last Battle of the Icemark. I still am thinking about that.


10: Who's your hero/heroine?
Hm…again there are a lot. Right now, I’d have to say Clara Barton. She was absolutely amazing, and she’s always been on my top ten list of people. I’ve loved her since I was eight years old, when I found a book that had been placed on the discard shelf at the library. First book I purchased by myself, for fifty cents. It has definitely seen a lot of love.

11: First spring thing?
Going outside to look at the lilacs. Ever since the summer I missed them (11 or 12 years old), I make it a point to go out to my backyard to see them.

12: Funniest thing you saw in your life?
That is so hard, but the one I keep thinking of happened last week when Tony got up behind Mr. Brown in class and starting imitating him. Mr. Brown put up with it for awhile, but finally threw his keys around behind his back at Tony. It was seriously one of the funniest things ever, to see Tony bust up laughing, the whole class fall apart, and Mr. Brown just stand there grinning like “Haha, I totally got you.”

13: Favourite film?
Wives and Daughters, The Mayor of Casterbridge, While You Were Sleeping, Amazing Grace, Prince Caspian, Surf’s Up…oh. It just said to list one. Well, there are way more than the six you see here. :)

14: Share some wisdom?
What is right is not always popular, but what is popular is not always right. ~Unknown

That quote was on the wall of a sewing teacher’s classroom at Payson High School when I was at a cast meeting for Singin’ in the Rain. I was ten, but I’ve never forgotten it.

15: If you were a tree, what tree would you be and why?
A willow. They can hide their faces from the world and sit in silence with their thoughts uninterrupted.

16: Fictitious characters who made a lasting impression on you?
I don’t know. For reals, I don’t. I guess I could say Sydney Carton from A Tale of Two Cities.

17: 4 words to describe you?
A work in progress.

Tag! ramblins, Chelsea, Woman in a Window, Summermoon, Maya, Kate, cuileann, and spider.

great answers

Woman in a Window said...

You are more interesting than me so I leave it at your feet to keep telling us of you. Love yourself though. Never mind the taller, prettier stuff. I can't see you but you sure seem mighty magnificent to me. I've got this feeling about you...going far.
