Other People’s Fun Ideas

Copying this guy from Ginger! (Laura did it too!)
Do you have any strange phobias? I fear I have kind of a lot of strange phobias.  Goats. (SQUARE EYES.) Birds. (SHARP BEAKS. Plus DIRTY, if you're in a city.) 

Do you sleep with or without clothes on? It depends on where I am.

If you are outside, what are you most likely doing? Running.  Commuting to work.  Walking to lunch. SOMETIMES hiking, but I do this much less than I'd like to.

Simple but extremely complex. Favorite band? Ever and EVER? I can't answer this, I don't think.  There are SO MANY.  Plus, I'm more of a song person than an entire-body-of-work person.

Do you believe in karma? Yes. Definitely.

Who is your celebrity crush? Landry Fields. (Currently playing with the Toronto Raptors.) Bradley Cooper. Channing Tatum. (Even BETTER? STEP UP CHANNING TATUM.)

What’s a sound you hate; sound you love? Hate: Oh gosh, someone chewing with their mouth open.  (I just twitched.) Love: Waves.

Choose: East Coast or West Coast? West.  But if my family lived somewhere else, it could very easily be East.

What was the last book you read? I'm reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed right now. So far, AMAZING.

Do you like the smell of gasoline? I don't go out of my way to sniff it, but I don't mind it.

Do you have any nicknames? Charlie (surprise!), but more recently one of my coworkers started calling me Chuck and I LOVE IT. 

What was the last movie you saw? Les Miserables.  I took myself out on a solo movie date because I was so sad that I missed it opening weekend.  It turned out to be ok since I was not a fan.

What’s the worst injury you’ve ever had? I guess my broken collarbone as a kid? (I got it falling off a shelf in the back of a one-ton truck where I was taking a nap while it was driving.  Weird.)

What’s the last thing you purchased? I was lucky enough to win the random drawing the first week of Biggest Blogging Loser and I but that money toward some Project Life items.  SUPER excited about it.

Can you touch your nose with your tongue? Nope. And I look absolutely ridiculous when I try. 

Is there anything pink within 10 feet of you? I bought a pink belt for $2.88 from the Loft yesterday and it's still just sitting there on my loveseat.

What’s your favorite animal? Elephants! Monkeys! Piglets! Rhinos! Hippos! Giraffes! (Sorry, hard question.)

What were you doing last night at 12 AM? Sleeping, actually.  (Most nights that's not true.)
What’s a song that always makes you happy when you hear it? Make Her Fall In Love With Me Song (George Strait)

What is the single best decision you have made in your life so far? Changing industries, career-wise.

What’s the last song you listened to? Well, honestly, the song I mentioned two questions ago.  But before that it was Red Light Special by TLC.

What is your current desktop picture? I don't use one! Isn't that strange?

You accidentally eat some radioactive vegetables. They were good, and what’s even cooler is that they endow you with the super-power of your choice! What is that power? Isn't there a power somewhere in some book I read where you can change the emotion in a room/for other people? THAT. I would do that. You know how you hear people and you want to just take away the anxiety and self-doubt? I would totally be able to DO that.  AWESOME.

You can re-live any point of time in your life. The time-span can only be a half-hour, though. What half-hour of your past would you like to experience again? It's absurd how long I've been thinking of an answer to this question.  I don't think I have one yet.

You just got a free plane ticket to anywhere. You have to depart right now. Where are you gonna go? Japan! Packing my camera and heading for Alyssa.
