What makes you happy?
* Christmas makes me sublimely happy. Christmas music, movies, shows, decorations, food…everything.
* My parents, who mean the world to me.
* Football, NASCAR, Basketball, Baseball, etc.
* Soda. Yeah, I know. Bad for me makes me happy.
What was your childhood like? Honestly, I couldn’t ask for a better childhood. It was a childhood full of love, laughter, and so many traditions. I miss it everyday.
What was your first crush like? Mind-numbing. It’s actually funny to think back on it now—how every little look held a hidden message or how every “and, the, huh, uh, and um” he uttered just had to mean something.
Did you ever have a celebrity crush? What was that like? Troy Aikman was my big crush in the 90s. Well, and The Right Kind of Love singer, Jeremy Jordan. Honestly, especially with Troy, the crush filled a void…it kept me company. I guess, while others had boyfriends, I had an unrealistic crush—the best kind, really, because they can’t hurt you—which is why I’ll be hanging on to my Bing Crosby crush for eternity. ;)
Do you like sports? Um, do we remember how I was during the Mavericks’ run for the Championship? Need I say more?
Have you ever done sports? Yeah, no. I watch, not play.
What music do you like? Everything, really. From Indie and instrumental to R&B and country, I listen to it all. I love American Standards (Big Band) as well—it’s something I grew up with and hold very close to my heart.
What instruments do you play? Yeah, none, unless you count tapping out songs with your nails on the keyboard when boredom sets in? Yeah, didn’t think so.
Did you like school? I didn't like how cruel kids could be growing up. As I got older, it became more about grades than anything else, especially in college and beyond. People didn’t call me Hermione for nothing. I was obsessed with getting A’s. To this day, I have dreams (nightmares?) that I’ve forgotten to study for an exam. I’m very glad to awaken from those dreams, I tell you.
What is your favorite color and why? Pink! I have no idea why, but I just love it!
Do you like where you are living? Yes, it’s a great little town.
If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be? Ooh, that’s tough. I would say Diagon Alley or maybe Santa’s village. ;)
What was your favorite book growing up and what is your favorite now? Growing up, I loved the classics like Charlotte’s Web, Anne of Greene Gables, and The Boxcar Children. I also loved the Nancy Drew books and Babysitter’s Club series. Today, I love the True Blood series. Until I find a new book love, my present day favorite must go to the Harry Potter series.
What is the answer to life, the universe, and everything else? Not sure there is an answer, but if I had to guess, I would say: do the best you can, be the best person you can, remember The Golden Rule, have faith, be true to yourself, love and cherish your family…oh, and count your blessings instead of sheep. ;)
Do you know where your towel is? Um, huh? I feel stupid. Am I missing something with this one? Anyone know what this means? Uh, it’s hanging in the bathroom. I feel off the charts on the stupid meter right now. Do they mean the kind you whoosh around during a football game???
