Happiness Survey!

Jay had this survey on his blog and his answers were so much fun to read, he said we could do the same. So, here we go!

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.

* Dreams.

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??? 


  1. Haha, Frisky, the last two questions are from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I loved that you took that second to last one seriously though. Very nice :)

  2. We have some very similar answers to the same questions -- whoa! Scary!

    And the answer to life, the universe, and everything else is . . . 42. Everyone knows this. *rolls eyes* (look it up) :)

  3. Funny, the Babysitters Club was really what got me into reading! (Well, that and Harry Potter). Haha I think I read almost every single book.

  4. Oooh! Fun!!

    Oh and the "Do you know where your towel is?" is from The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy. :o)

    And I love that you want to live in Diagon Alley. lol

  5. Someone I Love was called Hermione in high school, and Daria in middle school. Now she's called, Yes, Your Highness, whatever you say. I'd live at Hogwarts and visit Diagon Alley as needed.


  6. Jay: *blushes* See, I knew I felt stupid for a reason. I've heard of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, but quite clearly know nothing beyond the name. lol

    David: :) Really?! Cool. I, um, actually, didn't know that answer. *blushes* Know now, though! Feeling so stupid.

    Anna: Aww, really?! That was such a fun series! I think I read nearly every book as well--I remember my mom taking me to the bookstore to get them. :)

    J.Day: LOL--Well, I just figured anyone can live anywhere in *this* world, so why not go outside the universe lines. ;)

  7. LOLA: Aww, that's cute! I'd open up a shop in Diagon Alley. Not sure what kind, but something. Although, I would be perfectly elated being a Hogwarts' professor. Fun! :)

  8. Not stupid at all, don't say that :) I knew those were insider questions and I thought it would be interesting to see how many people understood, kind of like a secret hand shake :p

  9. Jay: I feel like Rudolph getting left out of those dang reindeer games again. lol At least I know now, though, right? Okay, I'll try not to feel completely stupid. lol

  10. Interesting info about you Frisky; but you really need to see someone about your Bing Crosby crush.....

  11. Eva: LOL--It's his voice! I tell you, he could sing the telephone book.

  12. Don't feel bad! I didn't get the reference either! :)

  13. Yvonne: Oh, thank goodness I'm not alone! lol By the way--LOVE your new pic! Is that a Santa hat I see?! So cute!

  14. I'd like to teach you to play the bongo drums, Miss Virgin. There's no hidden meaning there!

  15. Go into a book store, find the Hitch Hiker's Guide, and read the first page of chapter 3, it'll make sense :P

  16. Pink? Really? I never would have guessed!

  17. GB: I'd love to learn, GB! :)

    Jay: I'll do that! Any excuse to go to the bookstore is fine by me! :)

    Carole: *blushes* lol
