Well ladies and gentlemen, I am leaving my apartment in a couple hours to stay with a friend tonight, drink shitloads of tequila, go shopping all day tomorrow, and then leave for D.C. tomorrow. So, I anticipate this being my last post until perhaps Sunday night or Monday, depending on my jetlag/internet/meeting new roommate situation. Thanks for the questions goes to our favorite odd couple, Fitz and Milby.
1. What is the earliest movie you remember watching in the theater?
The first movie I remember seeing is Legend. I do remember seeing a lot of cartoon movies like Lady and the Tramp and 101 Dalmations, but I can't be sure if those were on TV or at the movies. And I know I saw E.T. at the movies, but I'm not sure I remember it. We lived overseas for my first few years, so I think I got a late start on the movie thing.
2. If you could strike one word from the English language, whichword would you choose and why?
I don't think I would get rid of any words. If people would just refrain from abusing the English (or even American) language, I would be happy with pretty much all words. If I had to get rid of a word, it would be c*nt...I hate that word. I hate it so much I can't even write it on my blog.
3. If you were a superhero, what would be your kryptonite?
Tomatoes. I hate tomatoes so MUCH!!!
4. Would you rather win an Emmy, Grammy, Tony, Golden Globe, Oscar, Pulitzer, or Nobel Prize? What work would you win it for?
Pulitzer, duh! One day my romance novels are going to be honored for being the first romance novels ever to have both a plot and female main characters who aren't victims, virgins, or bitter women who only find their inner beauty through the power of the love of a good man. My heroines are going to totally kick ass and save men from their own dumb selves.
5. What is your catch phrase? Don't have one? Then make one up!
I saw "So, you see how..." all the time. I picked it up from a friend, and it drove my ex-husband crazy...as in "So, you see how I don't care about your excuse for why you're five hours late?" I also say "Rock" quite a bit, and, in addition to my love of the f-bomb, I say "Holy SHIT" probably twenty times a day. I realize that none of these are particularly original...but I can't think of anything. Maybe one of my friends will comment and think of something that could be my catch phrase. I'm still considering "What Would Karl Llewelyn Do?"
