Tag, I’m It
Well, I am very belatedly responding to JOpinionated’s tagging of me in her meme post. (Sorry Jo!)
Here is the deal…I am to post 7 fun facts (random and/or wierd) about myself for all of you to enjoy.
1. My favorite Holiday.
I know everyone loves Thanksgiving and Christmas….and I do too, but my favorite holiday is The 4th of July. Everything about it is wonderful. It is warm and sunny, all of my family and friends come over for a barbeque, fireworks, sparklers, millions of photos, badmitton contests, jello in the shape of the united states, Lake Minnetonka, glow sticks and even the Minnesota mosquitos are wonderful.
2. My Celebrity connection.
I love seeing famous people. So sue me. Random celebrity knowledge and gossip is my guilty pleasure. I love seeing famous people. And now that I live in New York City, I see even more famous people. One of my very favorite times meeting someone famous was when my Brother and I met Jeff Hephner in Central Park. He played Matt Ramsey on The OC. He was definatley a minor character, but it was so much fun and we were so excited to meet someone from the show…at the height of OC fame.
More recent sightings: Taylor Kitch and Scott Porter (Tim Riggins & Jason Street of Friday Night Lights) and I got to see these two at the Thanksgiving Day parade this week…. (ahhh!) Merideth & Oscar from The Office.
3. My favorite food.
I know its wierd. Don’t judge me. But I love Jello! My favorite flavors are Orange, Pineapple and Lime.
4. My first (fictional) Love.
It is no shocker to most people who know me, and those of you who read this blog…I have plenty of TV shows that I love, and so I am sure it will come to no surprised that I love fictional characters. But who was my first love? My very first love…tv boyfriend….Zack Morris.
Yes. The days of The Max, Zack Attack and countless high school schemes from this blonde haired California boy first captured my heart through my TV set. And yes, I still love to watch the cheeseball episodes of Saved by the Bell on reruns.
Other TV boyfriends include: Jim Halpert (The Office), Chuck Bartowski (Chuck), Ryan Atwood (The OC), Tim Riggins (Friday Night Lights), Chandler Bing (Friends), Max Evans (Roswell), Michael Scofield & Lincoln Burrows (Prison Break) and Wilson (7th Heaven).
5. My 4 favorite places in the world. (In no specific order.)
– New York City: I have just moved to the city…just finished two months. Woo. It has been my life goal to end up here, and now I am. I love the city. I love the people, the subway, the variety and all the infuriating and random things about it as well.
– Lake Minnetonka, MN: My hometown. The most beautiful lake in the world.
– Tamarindo, Costa Rica: One of my favorite family vacations. A relaxed and gorgeous surf village on the ocean. Wonderful memories.
– Santa Cruz, Honduras: A place I spent time doing missions work twice. Life changing experiences.
6. Movies I will never ever watch again.
Since my childhood I have refused to ever watch two movies. And they are a random pairing at that.
Where the Red Fern Grows. This movie scarred me for life, when they get the shotgun to put the dog out. I never saw the end of the movie, and never will again.
Planes, Trains and Automobiles. No idea why, but when the car burns, I cried and cried and told my parents I would never watch this movie again.
7. A new Thanksgiving tradition.
This year I started a new day-after-Thanksgiving tradition. My friend and I watched all of the Thanksgiving episodes of our favorite show FRIENDS while baking christmas cookies. Next year I may add the Thanksgiving episodes of How I Met Your Mother also. 🙂
