11 Random Things

Lately I have been challenged for time and energy to create interesting food.  Every week I have great intentions… but nothing has been coming to fruition lately.  But I wanted to write something, so I thought I’d have a little Q and A session with myself right here, right now.

1. What movie can you watch over and over again, no matter how many times you’ve seen it?

I think I would have to say Love Actually, Anchorman, Dazed and Confused, and Friday (although I haven’t seen Friday in years!)

2. What’s your favorite band right now?

I am loving anything with Pitbull right now, but actually that’s pretty much all the time.

3. If someone made a movie of your life, who would you want to play you?

I’ve been asked this before, and I can never seem to name the exact right person. 

4. One food you wouldn’t eat as a kid that you love now?

I don’t remember eating asparagus as a child, but I love it now. 

5. Last book you read?

I am working my way through the 20 South Carolina Children’s Book Award Nominees.  I finished Wild River recently, and I liked that a lot.  Now I am reading The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg and I can’t stand it.  One page puts me to sleep every night.  But I am trying to forge ahead and finish it.

6. What is your favorite memory from high school?

I loved high school.  I am sure there were rough patches, but I certainly remember it with rose-colored glasses.  I think the best times were hanging out at Pete’s, a local diner-type place.  We would always gather there after football and basketball games and on Saturday afternoons.  I can’t imagine how many hours I spent there.

7. If you could have a dinner party and invite 5 people (famous or not), who would you invite and why?

It it were family, I would have a tough time because there are so many of us!  So I am going to invite non-family members so no one’s feelings are hurt.  I would invite:

Will Ferrell—for the comedic relief,

Barak Obama—because seriously, who wouldn’t want to meet the President?,

Ellen Degeneres—because I imagine that she would be fun to talk to and could get along with anyone,

Chelsea handler—because I am fairly sure she would bring Grey Goose and would stay after the others left to gossip about everyone,

and DJ Pauly D—because he’s bring great tunes, abs, and hair.

8. Scariest movie you’ve ever seen?

Paranormal Activity!  Totally freaked me out!

9. What song is stuck in your head right now?

“Shake Senora” by Pitbull (I learned new choreography for it this week and have had it in my head all week long!)

10. Quirkiest thing about you that most people don’t know – go!

I am not sure if this is quirky… but I make Ryan let the dog out every night and put her to bed and lock up.  I hate when he goes to bed first and I have to do all the night routines!

11. What do you love about yourself?

I love that I help inspire others to healthy living—through blogging or by teaching Zumba! 


So there you go… a little bit about me.  I hope to be back tomorrow with a food or recipe post!  I am considering a Dixie-Style Dining Recipe!  I haven’t done one in a while!
