Who Wants To Know?

I saw Shawn's We Want To Know post today and I couldn't resist....

1.} What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex? Are you an eyes or a smile person? Maybe another body part?
I like to take people in as a whole. So it's really a whole package thing for me. I guess if I had to narrow it down whether I would take a second look at a person or not, it would be these: Hair--there are certain hair colors that I just don't dig. Skin--this can actually tell you a lot about people (cleanliness and overall health are two major things). Eyes--for obvious reasons. Teeth--Oral hygiene is a big deal to me and I just can't do icky teeth. Two other important things that are not visible--smell and voice. Big deal, people.

2.} If a movie was being made about you who would you like to see cast to play you? And would your movie be a comedy, drama, romantic-comedy, action film or a horror movie?
Is there a female version of Robert Downey Jr.? If so, I think her personality and sense of humor would be perfect for playing me in a movie. If not, I think I would like Jennifer Garner or Sandra Bullock to play me. They're great. I have been told (not that I believe or agree with it) that I look a little bit like Angelina Jolie (ha!). Others have said that I look like Amanda Seyfried. And similarly mistaken people say I look like a mix between Lindsay Lohan and Christina Ricci (how can that be good?). So if we're going by who my doppelganger would be, I have no answer for you. (My husband has stuck to his guns with "Amanda Seyfried slash Angelina Jolie" and his mother agrees....lame) It would definitely be a comedy with some drama and action thrown in there....and some romance. 

3.} Does your senior yearbook include a senior comment section? If so share what you said about your future goals. Have you met those goals?  If you do not have a yearbook just share an old picture and let us know what your goals where when you were 18 and if you have met them. If you're brave enough, include your senior picture!
My senior yearbook...oh was a lot of things. I didn't like the choices the yearbook staff made or the way they put it together. I think there was a senior comment section, but not many people knew about it. So there are just a few entries....which is stupid. When I was 18 I didn't know what I wanted, and I was mature enough to realize and accept that. I wanted to go to college, but I couldn't make up my mind on what to study. I knew the world was a big place with a lot of opportunities. I wanted to find myself before I made major decisions about my future. I didn't care at what age I got married, but I knew I didn't want to have kids until I was at least 25 years old. Well guess what? I have an 18 month old and I'll be 25 this fall. As for my senior picture...well there's another huge FAIL on the yearbook staff's part. I went and had them taken and the yearbook staff automatically gets a copy of every picture. For some reason I'm "not pictured" in my senior yearbook. It was a bitter-sweet moment to see that on yearbook day. I hated the picture because they decided they wanted to unify the senior section by draping the girls and suiting the boys. The picture was hideous (it really wasn't that bad, but I hated it) so I was kind of okay with it not being in the yearbook. On the other hand, it was my SENIOR YEARBOOK. I had never been "not pictured". I was pissed. The yb staff gave me a refund since they lost my picture and failed to request a copy of it. I have several pictures of me from senior year (including super cute acting head shots!), but to be fair I'll post the next best thing to a yearbook picture and show y'all my senior ID card picture!! [OMG I just found the "proof" of the yearbook drape picture. I'll show you both pictures since I went through the trouble of digging them up...]

ugly yearbook drape proof (flyaways much? how about some hair product, Ashley?)

4.} What latest trend simply baffles you? 
I just talked to Impulsive Addict about this--I have a serious issue with the "Amazeballs" epidemic. I do not understand it. I don't know where it spawned from or why or how. Even more baffling? Why the hell is it spreading like wildfire? Really, people? REALLY?? (No offense, Impulsive--you're hilarious and I'm not judging you because you use such a weird word--I say "retarculous" so....yeah)

5.} When you walk into a room how do you present yourself? Do you walk in with confidence and command the attention of others or do you slink in and do your best to go unnoticed?  
Depends on the room and the occasion. I don't think I ever intentionally command attention (though that was sort of beat into me all my life because I performed and acted a lot--you HAVE to command attention...) anymore. I may have possibly done that when I was younger, but I don't do that now because that would be annoying. I'm not shy either though. I don't slink in. I never slink. Unless I'm trying to be sneaky. So confidence--yes, commanding attention--not so much, and slinking--definitely not.

This was a fun WWTK! Thanks, of course, to Shawn, Impulsive Addict, Janette, and Mamarazzi!!



  1. Uhhh smell. I haven't seen that yet but you're right I love the way my man smells!

    I love RD Jr. he's such a fun guy. Based on todays answers sandra is going to be a very bust girl! I can maybe see Christina Ricci, maybe. I have no clue who Amanda Seyfreid is, I'll have to Google her.

    Ashley, sis you need some pomade? I have never heard of draping and suiting.

    I had to ask IA to say amazeballs for me, I had no idea how to pronounce it.

    I think there's a difference between commanding attention and expecting it because you believe you're so fabulous. And I agree, never slink, ever!

    Thanks for linking up, you're such fun!

  2. I love love love your answer to #1. Pure genius!!

    I think Sandra would be a good match for you but I really really like her.

    Ok...I'm totally laughing WITH YOU on the Senior pic!! That is greatness!!

    I'm hurt. Take the dagger out of my heart. I can't stop saying the "a" word. I'm completely bummed that you hate it. And I wanted us to be friends! =(

    Thanks for linking up with us! You're a sweetheart!


  3. Umm I know, Sr. Yearbook was a bust right? I was totally "not pictured " as well... and lets just say for the record that I may have thrown a fit for a few more refund dollars in my pocket, but really. I think I saved some sore eyes from that lovely drape picture:) P to the S.. I don't think we can judge our high school hair maintenance. Those were wreckless years.

  4. I can see the Angie Jolie resemblence! DEF see the Amanda S. one :)

    oh and love your senior pics! Classic.
