(2008 status — still super single, and about to throw in the dating-towel)
Ever given your all to someone who walked away?
I’ve considered completely opening up to certain people, only to find out I didn’t have all the information I should’ve had. Then I usually get confused and kick something. Like said person.
(True story — around this time, I was talking to a guy who was feeding me every line under the sun, and I was falling for it like a sucker. A sucker! And then one night he casually mentions how he needs to get up early to pick up his girlfriend from the bus stop. The who from the what now?! Donezo. And then he kept calling me! I hated dating.)
Who is the closest person near you?
One of my work boyfriends.
(This still applies, but it’s a different work boyfriend. Technically, he’s my work husband, because we’ve been together since 2004.)
What does your 8th text say?
(Now? “Centy for short.” I found out a few days ago my ex is having a baby. Well, he’s not, but his wife is. And the competitive part of me briefly kicked into high gear, but then I got over it in about two seconds, because his baby is destined to have a rattail. Also, my bff Kristina was quick to point out that my baby(ies) will be the event of the century. So we decided I should name my future first born either Centurius or Centurline.)
Is there anyone you trust even though you shouldn’t?
There are people I know can only be trusted with some information. So they usually get the abridged versions of things.
(I call these people, “my relatives,” or “my employers,” haha.)
If you could change your name to anything what would it be?
Princess Consuela Banana Hammock.
(First name: Crap! Last name: Bag!)
Are you afraid of falling in love?
No, I sort of welcome the opportunity. Unless it’s unrequited love, in which case I can’t handle it.
Apple. But I don’t drink juice.
(I was still knee-deep in my sugar-is-evil phase. I was also skinny. So, perhaps I should revisit that state-of-mind.)
Have you had the chicken pox?
Yes! I remember oatmeal baths and being really itchy. It was great.
Are you talking to someone while doing this?
Nope, but I’m listening to everyone. I’m very nosy.
(It’s genetic. You think I’m listening to music on these headphones? Nope, I’m totally spying on you.)
What school plays were you part of in elementary school?
Ah, well, in first grade, I was Mother Goose. That’s how I met Lo – she was my goose, and we fought over a prop garden hoe. On stage. In front of an audience. Then in fifth grade I was the Ghost of Christmas Future. I didn’t have any lines – I was just the tallest kid in school, so I was the scariest in costume.
(And I was ahhhmazing in both, athank you.)
Do you think it would be more fun to model or be in a photoshoot?
Oooh. A photoshoot, only because I’d probably fall on the runway. Super-high heels and I do not get along.
(I prefer wedges to proper heels anyway, because they’re cute and comfortable, but Mike despises them. Actually, he hates most of my shoes.)
Do you like winter?
I like things that accompany winter – like hot chocolate, scarves, sledding, Christmas presents and my birthday.
(We can add, blizzards, sweatpants, and my wedding anniversary to that list.)
How clean is your room?
There might be one or seven things scattered on the floor. But it’s not too bad. It is incredibly dusty though, as I refuse to dust unless I know my mom/grandma are coming over.
(Right now, our room is clean, and dusted, and vacuumed. But only because there were 30 people at our house less than a week ago.)
What are you excited for?
NYC, Waldorf-Astoria, Serendipity 3, The Carnegie Deli, quality gay bf time.
(Our weekend in NYC cost a small fortune, and equalled like 48,000 calories. But it was worth it.)
What color is your couch?
I have three couches, which might seem excessive for a single girl, who lives alone… One is beige, one is Ikea blue, and one is a greenish plaid.
(Now we only own two — the same beige one, which is always covered with a quilt, because beige fabric + dogs = frowny face, and the other one is a brown/grey situation, which is also always covered, because dog hair gets everywhere, and I hate it. But I love the dogs. So I compromise.)
Do you currently want to scream at the top of your lungs?
No, my throat hurts. I’m battling some sort of plague.
Favorite ice cream flavor?
Coffee or Mint Chocolate Chip. And now my sore throat is requiring ice cream.
(I had a dream last night about a restaurant that sold hotdogs on one side of the room, and all-you-can-eat ice cream on the other side. It was delicious. Also, I was there for some sort of drug deal, but all I wanted was to get it over with, so I could get to the ice cream side before it closed. I’ve been watching Weeds. And eating leftovers. This is what happens when you combine those two things.)
Do you think extensions look skanky?
I think mine look pretty good.
Do you know anyone in jail/prison?
I know someone the police are currently looking for. But doesn’t everyone?
(The manhunt is over.)
What are your plans for the weekend?
I’ll be house/dog sitting until Saturday. If the weather is nice, I’m going to go take some pictures – and Sunday I have a date to hate the Yankees with Julie K.
(This weekend, for the first time in forever, we don’t have anything to do! I hope the weather is nice, so we can pool it up.)
Do you like the color green?
It’s only, like, my favorite, survey.
What is something you’d like for your birthday?
A puppy. Or a huge wheel of Swiss cheese. Or a fake wheel of cheese with a puppy hidden inside.
(This is still 100% accurate.)
What book are you reading right now?
The Complete Persepolis – but it’s sort of on hiatus at the moment.
(It’s still on hiatus, haha. But I did just read the Hunger Games trilogy. And The Help. And Bossypants. And I reread The Undomestic Goddess. And Dead to the World, in preparation for True Blood. But I need some summer reading suggestions, please? Anyone?)
Ever driven into the ghetto to buy drugs?
No, I had the hookup if I was ever so inclined.
Do you hate someone?
There are some people, who if given the opportunity, I would punch square in the face.
Favorite kind of candy?
(I like my candy, like I like my men. So, really the answer should be “Nerds.”)
