All About Moi: Or, Sorry But I’ve Got Noth–Oh, Look, Squirrel!

Greetings, Geeklings! So, I am without my beloved partner in crime today because she’s probably comatose after a trip to the Mid-West officiating for one of her childhood friends’ wedding. Which leaves me at loose-ends a bit because usually we discuss what we plan on talking about each week, and a J.J. without any sort of limiting or direction tends to get overwhelmed quickly by the vast amount of inexpressible potential topics… And while I was scrolling through my Tumblr for some inspiration, I chanced along one of those inbox games with the list of odd questions that are meant to reveal something about your life and your personality. Since I have almost zero filter or sense of when to stop sharing, I thought it would be fun to let you all know a little bit more about moi. (Disclaimer for all potential identity thieves: I literally have nothing but debts to my name… I wish you a whole new level of frustration in finding a way to milk my name for lines of credit.)

Unusual Asks

  1. Spotify, SoundCloud, or Pandora? CD’s. Literally, Geeks, I am that person who still buys the actual CD in its case and everything. I am mostly listening to scores and soundtracks as of late.
  2. Is your room messy or clean? A mixture of both really. There are lots of stacks of books on my shelves, and my desk is often cluttered, but dirty clothes belong in hampers and clean one in closets and drawers!
  3. What color are your eyes? They are blue-gray, with a ring of yellow-green around the pupil (a common genetic mutation in people of Celtic ancestry); my eyes will change color based on what I am wearing though.
  4. Do you like your name? Why? I picked it for myself, so yes.
  5. What is your relationship status? Single. As an introvert, I don’t exactly see this changing any time soon, but I’m not seeking anything out either.
  6. Describe your personality in 3 words or less. Sarcastic but sweet.
  7. What color hair do you have? A lovely dark drown at the moment.
  8. What kind of car do you drive? Color? A silver Highlander; a family hand-me-down.
  9. Where do you shop? Target and Amazon. Barnes & Noble on occasion, but the really good ones are a bit of a drive from where I live.
  10. How would you describe your style? Casual and comfortable.
  11. Favorite social media account? Tumblr.
  12. What size bed do you have? Queen sized; also a hand-me-down.
  13. Any siblings? I am the middle child, which should explain a lot; an older brother and a younger sister.
  14. If you can live anywhere in the world where would it be? Why? Oooh… good one! I’d have to say Ireland, because they are an independent republic. Scotland would also be a possibility, but I’m not a fan of their tax system.
  15. Favorite snapchat filter? What’s snapchat? No, seriously… what is it?
  16. Favorite makeup brand(s). I don’t usually wear make-up, to be quite honest. I’ve had a rough couple of years, medically speaking, so my skin is kind of stressed and weird at the moment. But I do like Bare Minerals brand.
  17. How many times a week do you shower? 7+.
  18. Favorite TV show? Conviction, about which I posted last week.
  19. Shoe size? Depends on the shoe, but usually 8.5 or 9.
  20. How tall are you? I am 5’8”.
  21. Sandals or sneakers? Flip flops. I love rain, but that’s the one kind of weather I can’t wear flip flops in… My toes love their freedom.
  22. Do you go to the gym? HA ha Ha ha ha hA!!!
  23. Describe your dream date. Hell, it’s been so long…
  24. How much money do you have in your wallet at the moment? $5 and some change.

  32. 3 favorite girl names. Sophia, Erin, Selena.
  33. Favorite actor? Colin O’Donoghue. And Harrison Ford.

  36. Favorite movie? The Lord of the Rings. It’s just one movie.
  37. Do you read a lot? What’s your favorite book? That’s a joke, right? Yes, I do a lot of reading. I think Jane Eyre is still my favorite; it took me a lot of tries to read it all the way through… I think I read the childhood portions like 4 times before I was mature enough to want to keep going.
  38. Money or brains? As I possess an abundance of the later and not much of the former, it’s a hard call… But I’d rather be smart than rich.

  52. What is your dream car? I love cars, but I would be too afraid of scratching it or running into something. The car I drive is just fine and has lived a good long life, so if I destroy it then it’s all good.
  53. Opinion on smoking? I’ve smoked and still have the occasional cigar if I feel in the mood. It’s your body, and we’re all going to die anyway…
