Ten Questions, from one of my buddies Ethony.

1. What was/is your favorite live action (meaning not animated) kids movie?
I was going to say Labyrinth, but Ethony beat me to it. So instead I'm going to say The Princess Bride. They'd have to be equal favourites. The Princess Bride tells the story of Buttercup and Westley. Westley goes off to sea and gets killed by the Dread Pirate Roberts, so Buttercup goes off and is ready to marry Prince Humperdinck. While out riding one day Buttercup is kidnapped by Vizzini, Fezzik and Inigo Montoya. blah blah blah, long story short. Dread Pirate Roberts shows up and ends up being Westley, Buttercup doesn't want to marry the Prince anymore, Inigo Montoya & Fezzik turn good, etc. etc. and they all ride off into the sunset. I FREAKING LOVE THIS MOVIE. and for that reason I will always love Cary Elwes (who plays Westley.

2. What is a bad habit you have? Are you working on breaking it?
I bite my nails to the point that they bleed and hurt like hell. I've been trying to stop for ages and ages, I get so far and then BAH! all chewed off again. It's gross =(

3. Describe your father in 3 words.
Funny, Childish, Geek. Yep it's true, and my mother hates it.

4. Which character in the Breakfast Club were you most like in the ’80s?
Considering I only spend 3 and a bit years in the 80s... I don't know. But if you were to ask which Breakfast Club character I was most like in high school, I'd probably say Allison Reynolds (the basket case) and a little Brian (the nerd) I didn't really discover the joys of Geekdom until after I finished high school. I was more of the quiet, sit back, let everyone else talk, no one cares about me, girl.

5. Name 5 songs you know ALL the lyrics to.
I know a lot, so I'll just give the first 5 in my playlist.
= Surrender by Billy Talent
= Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
= My Eyes by Felicia Day & Neil Patrick Harris (both parts)
= Mastermind by Mindless Self Indulgence
= Float by Flogging Molly

6. Do you make pancakes from scratch or a box mix?
from scratch.

7. What was your worst job ever? Why?
Network Administrator/Reception at "un-named" IT company. Why? because they were all jerks who got pissed every night and then expected me to lie to their clients for them

8. What was your favorite class in high school?
Art, even if I was the most uncreative of them all =D

9. Favorite summer guilty pleasure?
Staying inside and watching movies =D

10. Please share your best money saving tip!
seriously? I couldn't save to save my life.
