Turn On: Honesty and vulnerability

Tegan and Sara, & Flyleaf
My Favourite Person On TV Right Now Is:
I don’t have cable and I don’t watch t.v., mostly to avoid the news, but I choose Skeet Ulrich. He plays Jake Green on the show Jericho, which I am currently watching on Netflix.
Childhood Hero: God.
My life growing up has been very inconsistent. People have come and gone and will continue to. God is always there.
When I Was Younger I Wanted To Be: Everything. At one point I remember saying to my mom, “I will be a doctor Mon – Fri and a Killer Whale Trainer on the weekends.” If it’s a career, I have planned to become it. Except a gynecologist. I have never aspired to be that. Haha.
Last Album Bought: Tegan and Sara: Closer
Last Song Listened To On MP3 Player: “I Couldn’t Be Your Friend” – Tegan and Sara
The Music I’m Into Is: Everything. Basically, you can gauge how much I like or dislike a band based on if I sing along or tell you to turn it off. Bands I will ALWAYS tell you to turn off: Nickelback, Slipknot, ICP, Bob Dylan, Red Hot Chili Peppers, & U2. Don’t get me wrong, I can appreciate what each of these bands have done for music (except ICP) but they are not my cup of tea.
Favourite Current Band: This is usually based on what is rotating in my CD player. Right now: Tegan & Sara, Closer and Taylor Swift, Red.
My Favourite Drink Has To Be:
Orange Fanta. I really try not to drink soda very often but if I do it’s been this lately.
My Favourite Book Is:
Ooo this is a hard one!! It has always been “Where the Red Fern Grows” but now I think I would add in any of the Anita Blake series by Laurel K. Hamilton.
My Favourite Website Is: I’m not sure I have one. I suppose (nerd alert!!) Fanfiction.net.

My Favourite Shop Is:
The Alley in Chicago, IL
The Best Boredom Buster Is: Facebook. Haha, just kidding. Video Games.
The Best Film I Ever Saw Was: OMG! There is NO way I can narrow this down so I’ll say the best film I saw RECENTLY is Les Mis.
My Ultimate Snack Is:
Nachos. Mission tortilla chips, Daiya mozzarella cheese, soy crumbles, Trader Joe’s corn salsa, Tofutti sour cream, avocado, and smoked tabasco sauce.
The Worst Food Invented Is: I’m not sure I have an answer for this. Everything bad to one person is good to another. I stick to what I like and what’s good for me.
