Friday Follies

Last week, my lament was heard. And my cries were answered. So, today Debbie from Finding Normal is our guest questioner. Inquisitor? Grand Poo-bah? I quickly took Debbie up on her offer of questions. So quickly that I believe she questioned herself. And wondered what she had gotten into. But she has some great questions for you - plus a few extras. When you are done with the interview, be sure to check out her blog. And maybe even make some Paula Deen gooey butter pumpkin cake.

Book or movie?

Favorite make-up product?

Plain or peanut?

Favorite drink?

Which sock do you put on first?

Polished or natural nails? Toenails?

Favorite snack?

Favorite time of day?

How many states have you lived in?

Favorite holiday?

Black and white or color?

Email or phone call?

Favorite subject in school?

Famous person you'd most like to meet?

Who wants to be the next guest inquisitor??

post signature

Theme song: Snow Patrol - Chasing Cars. Because it's Debbie's favorite song. And she says "It's the gist of my life for the past two years." OOoooo...another incentive to be the guest interrogator...you can pick the theme song.

Literature--specifically, AP English my senior year of high school.

Well, I've already met Paula Deen. Do I even have to state the other? JASON STATHAM! Or Tim Curry...or Stephenie Meyer.

I am the great inquisitor. I am. Really. See, I'm trying to beat RHEA to the punch.

Rhea said...

I prefer books over movies.

I don't wear makeup enough to have a favorite product. Lame, I know.

Peanut M&Ms over plain, usually.

I mainly drink water these days. I love Sunkist and Dr Pepper and Coke but have sworn off soft drinks. Alcoholic drinks are rare.

I think I put on my right sock first, but I'm honestly not sure.

I have natural fingernails and Toenails but I prefer painted toenails.

My favorite snack these days is pringles. Bad, I know.

My favorite time of day is late at night.

I've only really lived in one state.

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Get to spend time with family and still anticipate more holidays to come.

I prefer color most of the time, but B&W for some photos.

Email is preferred over the phone, by far.

I loved Latin in school and English.

I don't know what famous person I'd want to meet, sorry.

I'd LOVE to be a guess inquisitor!

Mascara... whatever brand was on sale.

Peanut - though it NEVER fails that at least ONE of them will be missing a peanut.

Diet Mt. Dew but I haven't had one in 3 days.

Both polished most of the time. But the polish does NOT stay on well and that annoys me.

Home-made s'mores.

Evenings in the fall when I have candles lit.

Minnesota, Tennessee, California & North Carolina.

If I have to pick one, probably black & white.

ick....english comp I guess

Marky Mark so I can lick him from head to toe...aren't you glad you asked?

Kat said...

Book. Usually if I have read the book, I won't see the movie. But if I see the movie first, I am always inspired to read the book. Unless the movie sucks.

powder. It helps to even out my very splotchy complexion.

peanut. By the handfuls.

Coke Zero.

I don't wear socks. Unless it's really really cold. And it's not really really cold here.

Naked finger nails. Polished toes. And I really need a pedicure.

chips and some sort of dip. Any kind of dip.

In the morning. Right after Madalyn gets on the bus. And Katie starts her school work. When I open my email and find all my comment luv.

3 - Florida, North Carolina, and Georgia.

Christmas

I really like black and white pictures. And I am completely enamored of black and white pictures with a punch of color. If only I could figure out how to do that on photoshop. When I do, ya'll will see that all the time here. For now, it's a mishmash. And for movies, I like them in color. But colorizing is just wrong.

Email. Unless I have a lot to say and then I'd just prefer to use the phone. Or if it's an emergency. Like helping Lula to get her LOST promo posted.

History. Especially ancient history. In college - Anthropology - especially Biological Anthro. Fascinating stuff.

I don't think I'd want to meet famous people. I wouldn't know what to say. And it would just be awkward. Now, I'd like to see some famous people. And take their picture serreptiously...but not actually meet...

Jennifer P. said...

I like both--but I have to read a book before I see the movie made about it or I end up just seeing what the movie looked like when I read.

Neutrogena fresh face powder--it blends perfectly!

Peanut!

mostly water---but if I'm going to have a pop: Jones Blue Bubblegum or Izzy Clementine.

right one---which is funny because I don't think I've ever really thought about it before!

Natural nails---polished toes (always!)

microwave popcorn, dark chocolate, oranges (not all together though!)

That period right before I go to sleep and the real world starts to blend with the dream world--love it :)!

2 states

Halloween

Black and white is timeless---but color is fun too!

My birthday. What? That's a holiday- and you should all celebrate it with me next year.

after hubby and kids go to bed

4- Maryland, Michigan, Alabama, Tennessee

Thanksgiving

depends on the photo... some look better in color and some better in b&w

Email

I really liked all subjects that were NOT math or science (History, English, French, Music) with the ONE exception of a geology class I took my 1st semester of college... that was a great class. First time I ever found science interesting.

I wouldn't know what to say, either... but I'd love to meet any of my "boys" - Gerard Butler, Christian Bale, Rodrigo Santoro, John Krasinski... I could go on...

ME!

Cristin said...

The Book is always better than the movie... but fingers crossed for Twilight to be the exception.

Duh... Bare Minerals

Nuts make everything better...um... peanuts I mean...

My wine glass runneth over...

Huh?? Left I think...

Natural nails...Hubby thinks color is trashy... I've never painted my toenails..

Cereal

The kids bedtime is my fave.

I've lived in Mass. Vermont, New York, New Jersey, and Canada for a while... oh, that's not a state...

Christmas... actually, Christmas Eve is my fave... Santa sightings are a blast.

Photos?? Black and white... Movies?? Color

Depends... usually phone call, but if it promises to be an awkward exchange I'll opt for the email.

English.

Favorite drink? I'm really a water person, but I like Dr. Pepper w/ vanilla or a lime.

Which sock do you put on first? I never wear socks. Not even with my snowboots. I don't even know the answer to this. Now I'll have to pay attention whenever I finally have to put a cock on.

The only famous person I'd love to meet is Jesus. Other than that, they're all just people and a heck of a lot of them are MESSED UP!

Oh wait, I would like to meet Gary Sinise. Because on top of being a brilliant actor, he is also a conservative. That is a very rare thing in Hollywood these days. I'd love to talk politics with him and then revel in his hotness....
