So I've been tagged for a meme by the fabulously random Mich over at
Who Is Mich? whose blog you should totally check out.
Now let's see...
1. Were you named after anyone?
Both of my names came from my parents. My first name is the english version of my dad's whereas Kendall has a funny story behind it. My mom was still slightly loopy from the meds and she didn't know what she wanted my middle name to be. The nurse came in and called her "Kendall" by mistake (her name and mine are only 3 letters different) and she liked it.
Nineteen years later, I'm in the mall with a friend and we hear someone calling my name. We're looking around trying to figure out who it is when I hear "Mommy!" and a little blond girl comes running up to the woman calling my name. Cue mass amounts of ribbing.
2. Do you still have your tonsils?
Nope, had them removed when I was four or five. I don't remember if it hurt or not but I remember lots of ice cream.
3. Would you bungee jump?
I'm a wee bit of a thrill seeker so most definitely. It's where I would bungee from that's the question.
4. What is your favorite cereal?
To those who didn't read my Shit List, I'll reiterate. I absolutely loathe cereal and were I consigned to Hell one of my punishments would be having to eat it every morning. With milk. *shudder* I seriously can barely stand to see people eat it myself.
Sadly, this doesn't stop me from craving a dry bowl of cheerios every blue moon. A craving I do everything in my power to ignore.
5. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
For my tennis shoes, yes. My church boots and flip flops don't have laces.
6. What is your favorite ice cream?
Strawberry shortcake flavour from Ben & Jerry's
7. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Their sense of humour, eyes, and voice
8. What is your least favorite thing about yourself?
My at-times abysmal self-confidence. Distant second is my slight eating disorder (not sure if that is actually what is wrong with me or not.)
9. What was the last thing you ate?
A bagel before class on Friday
10. What are you listening to right now?
"For Good" from Wicked. Original Broadway Cast for the win.
11. Last movie you watched?
On my own, it was "The Green Mile". With someone else, it was "Forrest Gump" with Eva and Daybreak. Hmm, lot of Tom Hanks love this week.
12. What did you dream about last night?
It was a nightmare that I could not wake up from. Think Dawn of the Dead zombies (super strong and fast) with Hills Have Eyes tendencies and motivations (Papa Hades). Now put them in a crowded mall. Yeah, I was freaked.
13. What book are you reading?
I finished New Moon last night and next on my To Read list is A Lion Among Men, the third book in the Wicked series.
14. Summer or winter?
Summer...few clothes, barefoot, beautiful weather, water
Winter...birthday, Christmas, beautiful scenery, cold
Hmm, I can't decide.
15. Do you have any special talents?
Soy bilingüe. I can tie a cherry stem with my tongue. I can do and hold a hanstand, working on being able to hold it one-handed. I am a great cook. I could probably hold a conversation using nothing but movie quotes. I seem to be able to make even the most serious or depressed person smile and laugh.
