Authentic Me

I'm joining in with Abigail's blog party over at her blog, Rear Window.  You all should really check it out!  It involves great giveaway prizes, awesome random questions, and meeting new people.  How could one go wrong? ;)

This is me.  I am Katie.

1} What's the nerdiest/geekiest/weirdest thing about you?
Oh goodness.  Nerdy: I still use the old fashioned yellow pencils that are apparently really outdated.  Mechanical pencils and pens are all the rage these days. ;)  Geeky: I skip.  Like around my house.  Weird: Apparently to several random people, when I'm just sitting, not really doing anything or thinking of anything...just sitting...I look really bored or half asleep.  Yep, I'm a certified nerd/geek/weird-o.  Haha!

2} If you could live in a fictional universe from any book, movie, or television show, what would it be?
Narnia!  That would be amazing.

3} Little or big, practical or frivolous, what is one of your favorite items in your house?
My trunk that sits in a corner in my bedroom.  It's the keeper of all of my special items.  Medium sized, practical, and one of my favorite things.

4} Do you like animated movies? If so, what is your favorite?
Love, love, love animated movies!  And I have so many favorites.  "The Lion King" is my favorite oldy.  "The Little Mermaid" is my favorite princess.  "Tangled" is my favorite new one.  (Speaking of "Tangled", it just so happens to be on right now.)

5} What is your favorite household chore?
Hehe...urm...none.  Naw, I don't mind cleaning...too much.  Probably cleaning my room is what I mind doing the least.  I guess 'cause it's my own space.

6} What's your favorite thing to get at Starbucks (or your favorite coffee shop)?
Ooo!  I have actually just recently become a Starbucks fan.  I've been doing the "coffee from the coffee pot in the kitchen" thing for a long while and then took my first trip to Starbucks about a month ago.  Tall white mocha = new found love. ;) 

7} What is your favorite pizza topping?
Cheese.  Lots and lots and lots of cheese.

8} Waffles or pancakes?
Waffles, please.

9} Do you like to play games? If so, what is your favorite?
Yes.  I enjoy board games and card games best.  I like Apples to Apples, Kimps, Spoons, Clue...

10} Have you ever let anyone win a game?
Yes again.  I'm the oldest of 4 so it happens.  Tehe ;)

11} Have you ever dyed your hair?
Nope.  My hair color is all natural.  Now my curls...not so much.

12} Do you make your bed every morning?  Not even close.

13} Picasso or Norman Rockwell?
Norman Rockwell.  I actually wrote a paper on him for art class last semester.  I really quite enjoy his paintings.

14} Do you like carpet, tile, or hardwood floors?
Carpet.  I have tile in my bedroom and it gets cold in the winter sometimes.  I really like the warm, homey feel of nice carpet.

15} If you could put one thing in a safe under your bed, what would it be?
Probably all of my photos safely burned to CDs.  They're like my history...or perhaps my way of journaling, and I look forward to showing them to my grandchildren some day.

16} What's your favorite condiment?
Ketchup.  I'm a fan of ketchup.

17} Have you ever thrown up on someone (excluding when you were a child)?
Hahaha!  This is so gross.  No, I don't believe I have.

18} What was the last thing that made you laugh?
"You should know that this is the strangest thing I've ever done!...How 'bout best two out of three?" -Flynn Rider, "Tangled"

19} Think fast...what's the first song that pops into your head?
"Closer to Love" by Mat Kearney

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  I'll be posting my 'thankful' post in the next day or on the look out. ;)


  1. Happy thanksgiving to you, my dear! (:

    Tangled is the best...I love that movie so much. You're making me want to watch it. Oh, I don't know if I've ever told you this before, but your hair is amazzzzing. Such a beautiful color. I may or may not be slightly jealous. ;]


  2. Oh Katie, you make me laugh...
    I also enjoy skipping, and yes around my OWN house. ;)
    Then again I do enjoy spreading the love by skipping in public too.
