Happiness Survey

I completely stole this from The Frisky Virgin, who stole this from another blogger. Seems like a lot of blog stealing goin' 'round.

What makes you happy?

My family and friends. Finding the time to read or watch a whole movie with no interruptions - especially if that includes popcorn and M&M's. 

What was your childhood like?
I had an awesome childhood. My only issue was that I didn't have a younger sibling to blame stuff on, so I really couldn't get away with much.

What was your first crush like?

Yeah, I doubt he knew. I don't remember much except his name. The really freaky part? Ten years after I last saw him (when I was about 8), he winds up sitting two seats behind me in a math class at Shasta College. At first I just thought, oh well, I'm sure there are several people in Redding with that name. Until he mentioned the town he was from. My only hope was that when he heard my name in roll call he had no idea who I was. Only because I wound up failing the class because I suck at calculus. Mort.If.Ied.

Did you ever have a celebrity crush? What was that like?
Did I ever have a celebrity crush? Do I breathe air? My longest lasting celebrity crush is Harrison Ford - I loved watching Indiana Jones! And even though he's well into his sixties, he's still sexy. However, I also adore Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds, Colin Firth (as Mr. Darcy, of course), Russell Crowe, and James McAvoy to name a few.

What was it like? Duh. If any of these men had half a brain they'd come find me. However, I can admire from afar.

Do you like sports?

Yep. I love going to Giants baseball games! Just don't make me watch golf.

Have you ever done sports?
I did cross-country and track, as well as some volleyball.  

What kind of music do you like?

I'm a big country fan, but I will listen to most anything except heavy metal or most rap.

What instruments do you play?

Um, yeah, I'll leave that to those with musical talent.

Did you like school?

Yep. As tough as it was sometimes, I preferred college because I could more or less choose my class load. A piece of advice - don't ever take 5 lab classes in one semester. You will be far too busy to breathe.

What is your favorite color and why?

Purple is my favorite color. My guess is that it's my favorite because it's also my birthstone.

Do you like where you're living?

Yes! I'm loving in here in Sticksville. It's so much better than Sacramento!

If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be?

Hogwarts! ;o)

What was your favorite book growing up and what is your favorite now?

I was obsessed with the Black Stallion series by Walter Farley. Read those things a million times over. And it's why my favorite horse is the Arabian. And why my first horse was an Arabian. Anyway, now . . . oh, how can I choose?!?!?!?! I love the Harry Potter books. I love Kathy Reichs' books (the inspiration for the show Bones). I love Jane Austen's novels, mostly Pride & Prejudice, and I even enjoy the sequels by Sharon Lathan.

What is the answer to life, the universe, and everything else?

42!! LOL  Oh and be careful with the Improbability Drive, you'll wind up being a sofa.

Do you know where your towel is?

Yes. I wear it as a scarf now because it's cold.


  1. This is really sweet.. can't believe you sat near your crush all those years later. Pure cringe! I count my first proper crush as a guy I liked at high school (even though i had crushes before this was the first major one) and even though I havent liked him in years i still felt a tiny bit devastated when I heard he was engaged and had babies with a girl that isn't me haha xxx

  2. Haha don't worry about stealing the survey - I'm thinking of doing the same thing lol!

  3. You named quite a few of my celeb crushes and Harrison Ford is totally HAWT! :) I love some Indiana Jones.

  4. Did you know that purple is the colour of royalty? Suits you. Thank you by the way for the Christmas card. that was SUCH a lovely surprise to find in my mailbox! xo

  5. Charlotte - I completely understand!

    Hazel - lol As long as we give credit stealing is okay.

    Doria - Oh seriously. If someone could give me Hugh or Harrison wrapped up under the tree . . . lol

    Rita - I forget that! lol Thank you! You're too sweet. And you're very welcome!

  6. Hogwarts! LOL Yay!

    Oh, Harrison Ford still does it for me. And Colin Firth--love him.


I love comments. Please leave one. :o)
