So, in my last post, I asked all of you lovely readers for questions about me that you would like answered. Here’s what I got:
If your life actually WAS a movie, what would be the song in the opening credits?
“Better When I’m Dancin'” -Meghan Trainor. Reasons being:
1: I love her, love the song, love to dance, all adds up to wonderfulness.
2: It’s peppy, and would make great opening credits, especially since my life as a movie would be full of the weird, wild, and zany.
3: Just listen to it:
Toni H asks:
What is your favorite memory from the past year?
Can I have two? I’m going to have two, and…Can I answer with a picture? I’m going to answer with a picture:
This girl…(yes I am sitting on her, and yes, we are laughing so hard that we’re crying…deal with it, we’re cool) reconnecting with her has brought back so many wonderful memories, and brought on so many new adventures. The very best memory so far though has to be our recent vandalism and brush with the law…. and when I say brush with the law, i really mean no one saw us….and when I say vandalism what I really mean is that we didn’t even vandalize anything…just threw a sign in a ditch and felt like a bad a**…
Anything that has to do with this total nut. We have adventures, we have deep conversations, we dance together… We compliment each other in personality and interests, and differ from each other enough that we’re constantly learning about the world through the other person. I’m thankful for the memories we’re making together.
Daryl E asks:
How did you become such a big musical fan?
Ah yes…how did the obsession begin? Haha, well, I started young… My Aunt Betsy, theater person extraordinaire, and my mother brought a copy of the OBC (Original Broadway Cast) recording of Into the Woods into the house.
Thus began my obsession with al things broadway, and Stephen Sondheim… (genius, I like him better than Lloyd Webber, don’t judge…) In all seriousness though, the movie does not quite measure up to the original, and you have not seen Into the Woods until you have seen the incomparable Bernadette Peters play the witch.
NO offense meant to Meryl Streep…but Bernadette just plays off the sarcastic, narcissistic, and slightly (okay often more than slightly) inappropriate witch perfectly!!
Then Betsy brought Wicked into the house and it was ALL over….
There’s so much creativity out there, and musicals embrace it. They take me away, and wrap me up in a story full of vibrant characters, conflict, and beautiful music. Honestly, I think musicals were going to find me, whether Betsy brought them in the house or not.
Grace S asks:
I had a lot of goldfish…all of which died under mysterious circumstances…
Then there was Angus…devil cat…spawn of all evil…
Just look at those soulless eyes…waiting to kill you at the slightest sign of weakness…*shudder*
And you all know Cooper (or dingus extraordinary, whatever works)
What’s your favorite flower, and your idea of a perfect date?
Well… until I learned that they could kill my cat, I really loved Sweet Peas, or the idea of Sweet Peas…I’m honestly not sure. They’re weird a** flowers. Anyway I recently discovered and adore the Hybrid Tea Rose…
I love how they have the classic tight rose in the center, but are also large and…blossoming…I guess…hahaha, I don’t need to justify a why, I just love them.
And as for my idea of a perfect date…that’s a little bit harder to answer, I really haven’t considered what my “single perfect date” looks like. To be perfectly honest, I just love a good adventure. Things like museums, antique stores, giant airplane hangars…a really great movie…as long as someone else has made the plan, and I get to spend time with a certain someone 😉 I’m happy…
Mark C asks:
What is your favorite place in the world? ( He also asked me about Woodchucks chucking wood, but I refused to answer that one)
Favorite place I’ve been?
‘Cause, my favorite place that I’ve been is New York City, which you’re all aware of. However, specifically, my favorite place is this little book shop in on W 40th.
It’s called The Drama Book Shop, and it’s a teeny little shop full of scripts and books about the production of Broadway Musicals…It’s my happy place 🙂
