Getting to Know You Survey, Ren Faire.
PAST FAIRE CHARACTERS: None.
BORN & RAISED: There. Just a county over.
WHAT, IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOR? Earthtones, usually. They tend to vary with mood.
IF YOU COULD BUILD YOUR DREAM HOUSE ANYWHERE? It's not so much "where" as where I wouldn't be if I chose a particular place. I wish I could live anywhere andstill be near what's important.
WHO WOULD PLAY YOU IN THAT MOVIE BASED ON YOURLIFE? I'd humour any interpretation of me. Watching would be interesting.
BIRTHDAY: May 12, 1984. My quarter life crisis fast approaches! (Indeed, has already passed)
FAVORITE BOOKS: Chronicles of Narnia, Harry P, His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman, 1984, Discworld series, Hitchhiker's Guide series all come immediately to mind. Delving into excerpts of the Upanishads and Vedas currently.
MUSIC PREFERENCES: Everyone's saying eclectic, but it's true of me as well. From showtunes to Eminem, my harddrive is quite diverse. Right now I've been on a folk/Brit/indie kick; Feist, Kate Nash, Regina Spektor.
FAVORITE ALL TIME CD: POTO was my anthem for a long time. Still adore it.
WHAT DO YOU DO AWAY FROM FAIRE: As I alluded to with my "poo" intro, I work at the Place (for those out of the area, read "animal shelter"). Scooping kennels is only the start of a typical day. Job titles include Animal Care Technician, Lost & Found Coordinator, and Offsite Adoption Counselor. It's unlike anything I've ever experienced. I couldn't give you a straight answer as to why I would live paycheck to paycheck to work there,"squandering" my education as some would put it.
SONG YOU WISH YOU HAD WRITTEN: I don't feel a particular want of ownership of any one song, as long as I can sing them.
MOST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE TO DATE: I'd be dead without my mom, from childbirth to her guidance along the way.
FAVORITE FILMS: I'm as all over the board on this one as music. Give me Henson, give me Disney, give me drama, action, fantasy.
TV SHOWS (CURRENT): Lucky there's a Family Guy.
TV SHOWS (ALL TIME): Still holding out for that $200 Monty Python box set (yeah right.)
WHAT DO YOU DRIVE: A 2005 Chevy Aveo dubbed "Sinmobile". Good story, that.
FAVORITE FOODS: Thai.
FAVORITE NON ALCHOHOLIC DRINK: Pepsi.
FAVORITE INEBRIATING BEVERAGE: Love ciders: Magner's, Woodchuck pear. I tend to get quite girly too: Dirty Girl Scouts, Mudslides, Jolly Ranchers.
CELEBRITY OF FANTASY: Johnny Depp. Yes please.
FAVORITE PLAY: Into the Woods, Equus, Long Day's Journey into Night come to mind.
FAVORITE FAIRE MOMENT AS PATRON/CAST MEMBER: As a patron, when I was a giddy,dressed up teenager, my friends and I met a cast member who was supposed to be some French guy. I then proceeded to one up his French skills by confusing him with gramatical idiosyncrasies. Delightful! And I was/am e'er impressed by a perfect kiss to the hand.
WHERE DO YOU GO TO FIND YOURSELF AND PERSPECTIVE: "In my own little corner in my own little chair . . . " Really, I don't have a physical place. It's usually inside.
FAVORITE SAYINGS: I say "oh snap" quite a bit. When incredulous I tend to say "question mark?" at the end of an inquiry. To divert focus from inappropriate/off-colour statements, I follow them immediately with a "Who said that?"
ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE YOURSELF: Endurance popped into my head first. For proper tense/part of speech to fulfill the question properly, I'll go with "survivour".
PLACE YOU DREAM TO VISIT SOMEDAY: India; Egypt.
FAVORITE ICE CREAM: Mint chocolate chip.
SOMETHING PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS SUPRISED TO FIND OUT ABOUT YOU: Nothing comes immediately to mind.
BELIEVE IN GHOSTS: No.
BELIEVE IN PAST LIVES: Yes.
