Unusual Asks: Michelle Renée Edition

Good evening my geeky darlings! I do not have anything terribly entertaining for you this week because my personal life has been…a bit hectic and full of major events. Consequently, I have not been feeling like my usual enthusiastic, geeky self. One of my closest friends got married, and I got to fly out to perform the ceremony! Then, shortly after returning home, my grandmother passed away.

And then, Trump.

Needless to say, I have been indulging in some much needed escapism, and don’t really feel like turning my brain back on. So, I’m going to fill out these unusual asks like JJ did last week because I’m original like that.

Unusual Asks

Spotify, SoundCloud, or Pandora? None of the above. I actually enjoy the radio or my iTunes library.

Is your room messy or clean? Considering I just moved into my room all of three weeks ago it’s fairly clean and a little barren. I do tend to be a bit on the messier side though. A little bit of chaos makes me feel comfortable and at home. If things are too clean I freak out a bit…I can’t think because it feels too sterile. Also, I’m kinda lazy.

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. <—- Me too!

Do you like your name? Why? I’m kind of indifferent towards my name. I don’t enjoy how often people spell/pronounce my name as ‘Michael’ or ‘Mitchell’.

What is your relationship status? I have a person with whom I spend a decent amount of time and enjoy engaging in certain…shall we say adult activities with.

Describe your personality in 3 words or less. Subject to change.

What color hair do you have?  Currently, I have my natural ash blonde. For the record, I hate it and will probably change it soon.

What kind of car do you drive? Color? A silver Versa Note. Her name is Greer, she’s a hatchback, and I love her.

Where do you shop? At stores, both physical and virtual.

How would you describe your style? My wardrobe is a combination of gothy/witchy things, woodland faery things, and ‘I-own-this-cuz-it’s-comfy-don’t-judge-me’.

Favorite social media account? What is social media? I don’t social media…I should probably social media.

What size bed do you have? Queen sized; it’s adjustable!

Any siblings? I am an only child. My mom wanted lots of kids, but, alas, that was not in the cards for her.

If you can live anywhere in the world where would it be? Why? Edinburgh, Scotland because it’s seriously the most beautiful place ever. Also, I actually felt at home when I was there which is something I can’t say for where I actually live. Alternatively, San Francisco or Belgium (I have family there).

Favorite snapchat filter? I do not have snapchat, and I don’t really even understand what it is, but my friend has it and I quite enjoyed the bat filter they had for Halloween.

Favorite makeup brand(s). Urban Decay, Bare Minerals, and Tarte

How many times a week do you shower? On average, between 5 and 6.

Favorite TV show? Currently, I am super into Gravity Falls and Westworld.

Shoe size? Depends on the shoe, really. Usually between 7.5 and 8.

How tall are you? I am 5’6.5”. People always think I’m a lot taller, though. I have really good posture due to years of professional choral experience. I literally have to try to slouch.

Sandals or sneakers? Neither. I really love my flats.

Do you go to the gym? I used to. I actually enjoy working out, but my back problems and lack of disposable income have made going to the gym impossible.

Describe your dream date.   What is date? I kind of have a one track mind when it comes to people I am attracted to/interested in, so…I really don’t care what we do or where we go as long as we end up in a room with a bed and some privacy.

How much money do you have in your wallet at the moment? Hehe…that’s cute. I only have plastic, and even it’s value is questionable. It’s like Russian Roulette every time I make a purchase. I need to get my life together, guys.

What color socks are you wearing? I don’t believe in socks.

How many pillows do you sleep with? One, maybe two, and a teddy bear. His name is Teddy and I’ve had him since I was born. Also, baby me was shit at coming up with names. Seriously, I had like 6 stuffed elephants named Fred.

Do you have a job? What do you do? I am currently unemployed! However, before I was a behavior specialist for a non-public skool. I worked with children and adults who had severe/profound special needs.

How many friends do you have? I have a total of 7 friends at varying degrees of closeness, but they are all considered friends. I don’t really have acquaintances because I’m not good with the socializing.

What’s the worst thing you have ever done? Define “worst”…Seriously, define it for me because I’ve done some things and worst is subjective.

What’s your favorite candle scent? I dunno…ones that smell nice? Is it weird that JJ would know the answer to this better than I do? She always knows what scents I like…sometimes she knows me better than I know myself.

3 favorite boy names. Erik, Edward, and Vincent

Top 10 favorite songs. Heh…that’s not happening. Nice try though.

Do you take any medications daily? I do, as a matter of fact. It’s in everyone’s best interest, really.

What is your skin type? (oily, dry, etc.) Pale as f*ck. It’s prone to sunburn if I’m inside sitting next to a window. Other than that, I don’t really break out or dry out.

What is your biggest fear? Maieusiophobia, the fear of becoming pregnant and giving birth.

How many kids do you want? Please refer to the previous question. Zero. I want ZERO kids…biologically speaking anyway. I am open to the idea of adoption much, much further in the future.

What’s your go to hair style? Down. It’s too short to really do much with, but that is why I opted for the asymmetrical bob.

What is your dream car? A hearse with good gas milage.

Opinion on smoking? I buy one or two packs of cloves a year because I enjoy the taste and smell…but that’s about it. I don’t really have an opinion on it.

Do you go to college? I technically have two degrees…except one is far more useless than the other (it’s an AA and a BA). I made it half way through a Master’s program, but then decided that wasn’t what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I am currently in two certificate programs at a community college. Yay career changes!

What is your dream job? Film/television location manager; voice-over actor

What are your hobbies? Does watching a shit ton of Hulu and Netflix count? Also, reading and singing.

Can you draw? I can in that I have the ability.

Do you play an instrument? I have played the violin, trombone, and piano. I can still kind of play the piano.

Tea or coffee? COFFEE!

Starbucks or Dunkin Donuts? Starbucks

Do you want to get married? Eh…I’ve never been big on the idea. If it happens, it happens. If not, that’s cool too.

What is your crush’s first and last initial? What am I, 12? I don’t have a crush.

Are you going to change your last name when you get married? I’m working on changing my name right now. I hate my last name. I’m either going to make up a new one or just make my middle name my last name. In either case, if I do get married, I’d only change mine if theirs was cooler. Alternatively, we could come up with a totally different last name that we both like and both change our names!

Do you miss anyone right now? Not really.

Do you sleep with your door open or closed? CLOSED! I’m trying to get some restorative sleep, not eaten by monsters or murdered by maniacs…

What shirt are you wearing? A forest green t-shirt.

What is your phone background? A cartoon, gender bent Hades with Cerberus.

Are you outgoing or shy? Neither. I’m just introverted. I can appear outgoing when I’m in a small group of people I’m comfortable with. However, most of the time I just like to hang back and observe people. I’m not shy, though; I’d just rather not interact if I don’t have to.

Do you like it when people play with your hair? Depends on who the person is. JJ or my other friends, yes. Stranger or acquaintance, no…don’t touch me. I’ll kill you.

Favorite lyrics right now. “And all the people say/ You can’t wake up, this is not a dream/ You’re part of a machine, you are not a human being/ With your face all made up, living on a screen/ Low on self-esteem, so you run on gasoline/ I think there’s a flaw in my code/ These voices wont leave me alone”

Oh, thank the gods it’s over! That was a very long list of questions. Now you guys know some completely useless information about me. I hope this wasn’t terribly uninteresting. I have something much better in the works for next week, I promise.

Until then, be excellent to each other and geek on!
