Playing Tag... And I'm it.

The lovely Toriz from Torizworld has tagged me and because it seems like fun I am going to play too. According to the rules I need to post 11 random things about myself, answer the questions Tori put together for us, tag 11 new people and make up 11 questions for them.

11 random things about me:

1. I have a deep speaking voice, but sing high soprano, so when I used to do musicals I would purposefully talk in a higher voice, so it didn't sound silly.

2. I have had several poems published.

3. I absolutely suck at playing video games and get frustrated really easy when I can not get the characters to do what I want. I blame this on having no gaming systems between the Atari 2600 and Playstation.

4. I love mannequins, styling heads, foam heads, glass hands etc. I don't know why but I could fill my house with them.

5. I love having people over and entertaining, but it stresses me out. I'm fine once people are here and things are underway, but before then I am a wreck.

6. I have just recently learned to drink and appreciate wine and beer and for some reason it makes me feel more adult than turning thirty did.

7. I met Seth through his brother, Chris, who I worked with. One of the first things Chris ever said to me was, "You are so happy. My brother would hate you." It makes me laugh now that we are getting married.

8. I once had a teacher, who upon realizing that Albert Einstein and I share a common birthday, March 14, said "oh, so that's what's wrong with you." lol.

9. My worst subject in school is math, and my best is english. Everything else falls somewhere in between.

10. I know it is a classic, and whatever, but I never actually made it clear through the book Pride and Prejudice, until I read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

11. At sixteen I was in the PTA, was a room mother and a volunteer for field trips for my little sister. I also got her through chicken pox while my mom was on a business trip and various other ailments. I consider her the child I never had and we are super close.

Now for Toriz's questions.

1. What was your first pet? And what was its name?
My first family pet was a little black cat named Stormy. I was 2 or 3 so I really couldn't appreciate her. My first personal pet was a fan tail gold fish named Cleo.

2. What is your earliest memory?

3. If you could live anywhere in the world, in any type of home, where would you live? And what kind of home would you live in?
I absolutely love my is my dream home from when I was a little girl. If I could do anything I would just work on my own home. I would build in a lot of bookshelves, floor to ceiling in most of the rooms of my house. I would also redo my kitchen, it needs more cabinet space, and because my house is over 100 years old it has some unusual lay out issues, like the sink being in a weird little room off of the kitchen. And I would have the upstairs bathroom redone. This will all happen in time. :)

4. If you had to pick just one meal to have everyday for the rest of your life, what would it be? And Why?
I can eat pizza everyday of the week. Super crispy thin crust, lots of veggies, and sauciness. Mmmm... And do I really need to explain that.

5. What would your ideal job be?
I have wanted to be an English teacher since I was in  middle school and I think that is my ideal job. I want to teach college English. In fact I want to be one of those super eccentric english teachers. I have a goal.

6. Do you love to read? If so, what are your favorite types of books?
I an an avid reader and honestly I will read pretty much anything you put before me. Some of my favorites though are fantasy, sci-fi, supernatural romance, horror, mystery, I told you I like everything.

7. Are you a fan of watching movies? If so, what are your favorite types of movies?
I love movies. And like with books I am all over the place. I like art films, foreign films, fantasy, sci-fi, romantic comedy, drama, mystery, kids movies, aminated features, horror and everything in between.

8. It's a cold, dark night in the middle of winter, the snow is falling thick and fast outside the window... What are you doing?
Probably snuggling up with a good book in my corner of the couch with some hot chocolate and a warm chihuahua, and maybe a cat.

9. It's a beautiful, hot day in the middle of summer; there's not a cloud in the sky, and barely a breeze... What are you doing?
Avoiding the heat in any way possible. I am not a fan of hot days. Now give me a nice mild day and I would go out to a park to play, but say the word "hot" and I am out. Though a nice hot day is a good time to go hiking in Old Man's Cave and Hocking Hills because the caves are always colder than the surface, so a hot day makes a pleasant warmth in the caves.

10. If you could meet any fictional character, who would it be? And why?
Wow... this is a hard one. If I could meet any fictional character it would be Jenks from the Hollows books by Kim Harrison right this moment. He is the ultimate comic relief, while still being a serious help and a great friend. And he's a pixy. I don't know why he came to mind exactly, but since he was the first thing I thought of there you go.

11. If you could have a conversation with any person- alive or dead; just as long as they really exist (or have really existed in the past) - right now, who would it be? Why them? And what would you discuss?
I would have a conversation with my great, great grandmother. She died very young and before anyone found out who the father of my great grand father was. Quite the scandal. So I would find that out as well as what led up to her tragic end, etc. It would solve a great family mystery.

Okay, now I need to tag 11 people. I am doing this very randomly and I want no one to feel pressured to play along. :)
