Saturday Survey

I feel like there have been a lot of survey threads lately, but they're so fun to read and respond to, so why not have another one.

1.  What is your current favorite TV show?  Why do you like it?

2.  Pick another poster on the board, and then tell the first word that comes into your head when you think about that person.

3.  What's your absolute favorite thing to wear?

4.  What is your absolute least favorite food?

5.  What did you eat for dinner last night?

6.  Do you have a gym membership?  Why or why not?  If you do have one, do you use it?  If you don't, do you want one?

7.  And, since Tiger recently pointed out to me that I'm sneaking up on 10K posts, ask me a random question.

Re: Saturday Survey

  • My answers:

    1.  My favorite still-on-the-air show is probably Glee.  I love the musical numbers, even if the plot is a little...  silly.  Also, Darren Criss.

    2.  Leia -- dance

    3.  While I love getting dressed up, I feel most confident in a fitted tee, boot cut jeans, and wedge booties or sandals.

    4.  Setting aside all of the foods I'm allergic to...  bananas make me gag.  I can't even look at them.

    5.  Too much unhealthy food.  Steak topped with lobster, mac and cheese, and key lime pie.  Today I kind of feel like I got run over by a bus.  I'm never eating again.

    6.  No, and I don't want one.  I had one for years, but I've realized that I can find ways to exercise doing things I actually enjoy outside of the gym, like tennis and biking.  I might go back if I find a gym with a nice indoor pool since I love to swim, but there's not one where I currently live.

    7.  I'm exempting myself from this one.
  • I feel special! 1. This is tough, but I think I'll go with Castle. I love the goofiness of Nathan Fillion and the snark between his character and Det. Beckett. 2. Ashley -- knitting 3. My pjs are my favorite thing to wear. But if I were going out, I'd say my purple cocktail dress because I like dressing up and it looks great. 4. Lettuce. It smells and tastes terrible to me. I will not eat it. Cucumber is a close second. 5. Wheat spaghetti and veggie meatballs, which sounds pretty good until I followed it up with Cheetos as a movie snack. 6. I recently joined my work gym because commuting to the dance studio got so bad. I only went twice, but since I get to expense the cost, it's okay. I prefer the dance studio as I can more easily motivate myself to go. 7. Will you karaoke with me? Why or why not? that took forever. TK and my ipad aren't getting along.

    Anniversary

  • Danser, can you share you a recipe for the marinara sauce?  I've never made my own before.

    I'm at work today until 6, so my plan is to kill time at my desk (I actually brought DVDs to work with me -- that's how little I intend to accomplish), head home the second the clock hits 6, and get packed to head home for Christmas.  We're not leaving until tomorrow because I have to work, but I want to pack tonight so we can get on the road as soon as I leave the office.  I might drag H out to a movie, too.  What about you?
  • I take a can of crush tomatoes and a can puree tomatoes, some olive oil, red wine, garlic, some oregano parsley, basil and salt.  I let it simmer for several hours.  It's nothing fancy I don't even know if you would consider it homemade since I start with cans but it's real easy and real good. 

    I have to wrap xmas gifts soon, blah I hate wrapping.  Then we are going to see The Hobbit later tonight.

    Anniversary

    1.  What is your current favorite TV show?  Why do you like it?

    NCIS and Doctor Who.  I love NCIS because I love murder mysteries and I adore the team. So much.  I love Doctor Who because it fulfills my nerdy/fantasy side and N and I both enjoy it.

    RWS- Mom.

    Left over lasagna.

    6.  Do you have a gym membership?  Why or why not?  If you do have one, do you use it?  If you don't, do you want one?

    I have one through the school.  I never use it.  I am planning on trying this year.  I don’t like the gym; I like meaningful exercise like horseback riding or soccer.

    I still watch Grey's, too.  I keep trying to give it up, but I can't.  It keeps sucking me back in.  Plus, there's lots of man candy in that show.

    If I could be any animal, I would either be some rich old woman's spoiled house cat (sleeping and eating all day?  yes please) or something aquatic and cute.  An otter, perhaps.

    Ray, do you watch the new Doctor Who or the classic Doctor Who?  I keep telling myself I should watch it, because almost all of my friends who are HP fans are also Whovians. 

    Also, I had no idea you liked soccer.  How did I not know that?

    Favorite ever date with Nick?  That's tough.  It definitely wasn't Valentine's Day 2009.  That's for damn sure.  Ummmm... I'm going to say it was when Red Bull was doing that "stash" promotion to introduce their new energy shots (did anybody else do this?) and we spent one night driving all over the city looking for stashes.  It wasn't exactly a date, but it was really fun and it was together time.  So that.
  • Lily, if Buggle is reading this thread, she's really amused that you asked me about Disney princesses, because she knows that I'm hyper-analytical and feminist and kind of hate all of them.

    If pressed, I guess I'll say Aurora is my least favorite because she doesn't do a damn thing.

  • 1. What is your current favorite TV show? Why do you like it? Game of Thrones. Nearly as engrossing as the books, well-acted and faithful to spirit and dialogue (if not always to the plot).

What did you eat for dinner last night? Chicken parm with a side of penne. 6. Do you have a gym membership? Why or why not? If you do have one, do you use it? If you don't, do you want one? Not at the moment. I do a lot of one-off classes at cycling studios and boxing gyms though. After my vacation, I'm going to join a new gym though. 7.

    6.  Do you have a gym membership?  Why or why not?  If you do have one, do you use it?  If you don't, do you want one?

    Nope, because I'm poor.  I go to BF's apartment gym sometimes to use the free weights.  That works for now.  I do have a pass for yoga classes that I go to twice a week.  

    7.  And, since Tiger recently pointed out to me that I'm sneaking up on 10K posts, ask me a random question.
    How well do you get along with your family?  What about your H's family?

Favorite ever date with Nick?  That's tough.  It definitely wasn't Valentine's Day 2009.  That's for damn sure.  Ummmm... I'm going to say it was when Red Bull was doing that "stash" promotion to introduce their new energy shots (did anybody else do this?) and we spent one night driving all over the city looking for stashes.  It wasn't exactly a date, but it was really fun and it was together time.  So that.

    <p style="margin-bottom:0.0001pt;line-height:normal;" class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:8.5pt;">I am watching the new one right now.  I kind of did it backwards.  I watched the newest doctor (who is adorable!) and then I went back to 2005 I think when they restarted it and I am working my way up from there.  I plan on going back and watching the classic ones at some point too.  What I love about it is there are so many episodes and some of them are really scary.  Stone Angels scare the sh!t out of me.

  • 1.  What is your current favorite TV show?  Why do you like it?
    Sweet Genius and The Mentalist

    2.  Pick another poster on the board, and then tell the first word that comes into your head when you think about that person.
    Rdr : Real

    3.  What's your absolute favorite thing to wear?
    My tall Ugg boots that I've had for years. I basically wear them every day. I also love wearing skinny jeans and a cozy long-sleeved shirt.

    4.  What is your absolute least favorite food?
    It's a tie for veal and porkchops...

    5.  What did you eat for dinner last night?
    After a long, cold day in the city, FI's mom made us a Colombian soup called Ajiaco. It is a broth soup with large chunks of chicken and potatoes. Yum!

    6.  Do you have a gym membership?  Why or why not?  If you do have one, do you use it?  If you don't, do you want one? 
    I do but I haven't gone in a while because I was doing Insanity. Today was my last day so I will be going back to the gym next week. I will only be going to the gym because it is so cold outside. Otherwise I would workout at the reservation near our house. 

    7.  And, since Tiger recently pointed out to me that I'm sneaking up on 10K posts, ask me a random question.
    What is the craziest thing you've ever done? Like so crazy that you even look back on it now and think, "I can't believe I actually did that."

    [QUOTE] What are your favorite holiday movies -top 3?
    Posted by NotATotalBetty[/QUOTE]

    I've never been very big on holiday movies, but I loooove "Love, Actually," so that's going to have to be #1.

    #2 is probably Home Alone (the first one).

    I'm not sure about number 3.  Elf, maybe?

    [QUOTE]1.  What is your current favorite TV show?  Why do you like it? Dexter. 'Cause Dexter is a sexy serial killer, that's why. 2.  Pick another poster on the board, and then tell the first word that comes into your head when you think about that person. Bri = spicebush. 3.  What's your absolute favorite thing to wear? Lululemon Still yoga pants. 4.  What is your absolute  least  favorite food? I really hate raw carrots, no matter how much I try to like them. 5.  What did you eat for dinner last night? Cheese pizza. 6.  Do you have a gym membership?  Why or why not?  If you do have one, do you use it?  If you don't, do you want one? I do because I suck at exercising without one. I have not been using it since my big move/getting Ty. I just got a membership at a different gym that is close to home (vs. close to work where my old one was) so that it is more conducive to going since I won't have Ty with me. I need to get my butt back in gear. 7.  And, since Tiger recently pointed out to me that I'm sneaking up on 10K posts, ask me a random question. What is the best gift Nick ever got you? 
    Posted by LivLeighton[/QUOTE]

    I loved the first several seasons of Dexter, but I haven't watched it in a long time.  I'm not really sure why I stopped. Perhaps I should pick it up again, yes?

    For our first Christmas together, Nick got me the entire series of Friends on DVD.  It was a more extravagant gift than I was expecting, since we were poor college kids and had only been together a few months, but I loved it because it was a total surprise (something he hasn't managed many times since) and was so perfect for me. I also love the gold lightning bolt necklace he got me for my 24th birthday. 




    Ray - I can't believe I never knew you played soccer.  I played for 14 years.  If we ever meet IRL, we should kick a ball around some.  :)

    I'll have to add it to my GoodReads to-read list...of course there are over 100 books on that list so it might take me awhile to get to it!

    What is your favorite childhood memory?
    Daisypath Anniversary tickers
  • Beth, definitely add it your list.  And try to get to it sooner, rather than later.  :)

    Lily - I haven't seen Brave, but I do want to.

    Shiro - I guess it's a whole bunch of memories rather than one specific one, but I love looking back on Saturdays at the soccer fields.  The feel of the sun on sweaty skin, the smell of cut grass and orange slices, the sounds of children and parents yelling coming from all different directions...  it was magical.
