|Me in a nutshell||
Help!!! Let me out! But seriously, I'd have had to keep up with gymnastics as a child to fit in a nutshell…
Makeup. The Hoff. The color purple (the actual color, not the movie with Oprah). Tom Selleck's moustache. Useless trivia. Zombies. Sarcasm. Bea Arthur. Cashmere. Dance parties of one. Anthropologie. Ninjas. Trashy novels. Bubble baths. Cupcakes. Horror movies from the late 70's/early 80's. Anything ridiculous. Shiny baubles.
Tell Us More
|eat, drink, be merry: Tell us your go to meal||
Any kind of soup or pasta. I am the balls in the kitchen, except I can't cook meat well and I really blame the 4 years of vegitarianism I spent back in college. I make a macaroni and cheese you'd sell your soul for.
|beauty & fashion: I can skip these||
Beauty-wise: self-tanner and bronzer. I embrace the pale! Also, whenever I try either self-tanner or bronzer, I end up looking like Pigpen from "The Peanuts". Not a good look for me. I also skip primer because they all break me out to alarming degrees. Fashion-wise, I never wear belts or any type of pants described as "skinny". I'd rather die than be caught wearing "leggin's".
|I NEVER go without these||
Blush. I look like a corpse when I don't wear blush. I also won't leave the house without curling my eye lashes. It's such a little thing, but you can see the difference.
|Biggest splurge or steal in my closet||
Splurge: Anything from Anthropologie. Everything in that store is gorgeous, but hideously overpriced.
|do-gooder: Why I am one||
I'm kind to children and animals and I have a smile for everyone. Probably to the point that people wonder if I'm deranged, but occasionally I get a smile back, so I like to think that I elevated that person's mood, if only for a second.
|read, watch, listen:Favorite books||
"Lightning" by Dean Koontz is my all-time favorite and anything of the trashy variety. If it's got a busting corset on the cover or a well-muscled (possibly oiled) chest, I am so there. I also am weirdly obsessed with books featuring zombies. I have a book of zombie haikus. Totally not kidding.
If it belongs in a time capsule, I love it. I love jazz from the 20's up to techno from the 90's. Heck, I even own a Britney Spears CD somewhere. Maybe even 2. Don't you judge me…they were gifts…
|Favorite TV shows||
Walking Dead, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, How I Met Your Mother, The Good Wife, Castle, Supernatural, reruns of The Golden Girls and Murder She Wrote, and any Lifetime movie starring Tori Spelling.
There are lots: Halloween, The Fog, Cloak & Dagger, Big Trouble in Little China, Her Alibi, Clue, Pee Wee's Big Adventure, Scream, pretty much anything from the 80's, and almost anything that Judd Apatow touches.
|home & living:My favorite room in my house||
My master bathroom is my favorite because of the massive bathtub. It's so big I can FLOAT AWAY in the thing. When it's wintertime, I open the windows above it to let the cold air in, put scalding water in the tub and it's like I have a hot tub. I don't know how I lived without a tub this big before. *ponders*
|potluck:Five people (dead or alive) I’d invite to a party||
Oscar Wilde for his wit, Robert Plant circa 1970 so he can sing or just stand there looking pretty (dinner and a show), Steve Martin because I think he is one of the funniest yet quietly intelligent people out there, Paula Deen so she can cook, and my mom because if I had the ability to raise the dead in a non-creepy way, I'd use it.
|If I were an 80’s movie/tv/music star, I’d be||
The fat kid from "The Goonies".
