Friday Fix #6 - Say hello to Robby!

Friday, February 19, 2010

The Friday Fix is a takeover of my Friday blog post by other bloggers who have volunteered their time and energy to "star" in their very own guest post on Friday. Only one mandatory thing - you must answer five of the most random questions I throw your way. The rest is up to you. Remember, if you'd like to be featured on the Friday Fix, shoot me your email, and let me know! So, without further's Robby from Once Upon a Book Blog!

First, the 5 most random questions...

1. If you could go on a roadtrip with one person dead or alive, who would you choose and why?

Whoa...I honestly have no idea. The first person who came to mind was my mom. :D I'd probably want to go on a roadtrip with Amanda Palmer, so I can tell her how much I love her for hours and hours. Or I'd possibly go on a road trip with Mary Shelley so I can ask her over and over again why she could possibly write such a horrible book.
I'd probably go alone actually. Do some soul searching.

2. Why is it that those winning a game never say "it's only a game"?

If you win, then you win. If you lose, things are different. I'm a competitive person, so answering this question is easy for me. Games aren't for fun, games are about winning, even if they shouldn't be. If you win, then it's not just a game. It's something you've accomplished. If you lose then it is just a game because you weren't good enough and you're trying to make yourself feel better.
But, honestly, it is just a game.
Life is a game, but there is no losing.
That sound much more corny than I thought it would.

3. If a bus station is where the bus stops and the train station is where the train stops, what happens at your work station?

Oh! I get it! Work stops! Hahahahahahaha *fallsover,clutchingsides*

4. Why is the number 11 not pronounce onety one?

Why is the sky blue?

5. If you could have three wishes granted, what would you choose?

Nooooooooooo way. I'll tell you a little secret, actually. During the day, I am a teenage boy. By night, though, I am Lady Gaga. And Lady Gaga is a genie. I grant my own wishes.

I am not a spontaneous person. I plan things out, write list after list, map my days/weeks/life out. I always feel the need to have structure, to know what I’m doing and where I’m going. This is not necessarily a good thing.

On occasion, though, I am spontaneous and impulsive. This involves stalking an art student around Beverly with my friend Sophie and then falling into a bush. This involves throwing rocks into the road and getting yelled at by the cops in the Dairy Queen parking lot. I was thirteen and therefore much younger than I am now. Or not, but I like to think I’ve changed.

I have not learned my lesson and now I am always making mental lists, sorting everything out in my mind. This bothers me, sometimes bothers the people around me, and I have decided that, instead of rambling for the next few minutes, I will make a list. It’s what I’m good at. So here goes…

Fourteen Random Things About Fourteen Year Old Me

1. I love Starbucks. If you read my blog, you probably already knew that.
2. I love babies. No explanation required.
3. I have a strange nun fetish. No one understands this, not even me. For some reason, they just make me smile. I have never met a nun. I would like to.
4. Yoga is the answer to everything.
5. I have to buy books. I can’t get them from the library, can’t borrow them. It’s a bad bad bad habit, but I can’t stop. Bookaholics Anonymous, here I come.
6. Did I mention I love Starbucks?
7. I have a hat. It is also an owl. Not an actual owl, but said hat likes to think of itself as an owl. No, it does not stare at me at night while I am sleeping. Yes, it stares at people I pass in the hallways at school. I enjoy this.
8. I have 3500 songs on my iPod.
9. My iPod’s name is Sara Kiersten Quin, named after Sara of Tegan & Sara .
10. I am madly in love with Amanda Palmer. She is my soul mate, and of this I am sure.
11. The Teletubbies scare me.
12. I love Oprah.
13. I will never write a book about vampires. Or werewolves. Or Edward Cullen.
14. Wait. Isn’t he a vampire?

And there you have it, fourteen random things you never wanted to know about me.

Now I am off to drink more coffee and find out who this Edward Cullen person is.

Ps - I have read the Twilight books and actually liked them quite a bit. I know who Edward Cullen is, and I actually think he is kind of sweet. Kind of. He is also very creepy. Robert Pattinson’s hair does confuses me, though.

( confuses me, too, robby! thanks for participating!)
