Spotlight on me!! (I've been tagged)

Great news friends, I've been tagged! Finally, the answers to many of your questions about me (and some answers you never dreamed I'd reveal). I'm going to mix it up though - I'll answer some of the same ones as my friend Priscilla (the friend who tagged me) but I'm going to change some of them. So grab a mug of hot cocoa, wrap a blanket around your shoulders, and get comfortable. It's time to learn more about your favorite person: moi*.

5 Snacks that I enjoy:
1. Muddy Buddies, aka Puppy Chow (chocolate/peanut butter/powdered sugar/etc... covered Chex cereal)

2. Crispy bread with spreadable cheese
3. Fresh fruit
4. Tortilla chips and salsa
5. Veggies and dip

5 Things I would do if I were a millionaire:
1. Pay off my student loans
2. Give some money to the fam.
3. Travel
4. Buy a house
5. Become a snob

5 Deepest darkest secrets

1. Yeah right!

5 Pet Peeves
1. When my lotion pump gets guck on it and the lotion sprays out everywhere
2. When someone pulls out in front of me on the road, making me slam on my brakes even when there's no one behind me and they totally could've gone after me (I'm getting worked up just thinking about it!).
3. People who constantly reference inside jokes around people who weren't there. Sad.
4. Getting phone calls during Lost or the Office
5. Manipulative people

5 Favorite things

1. Spending time with good friends and/or family
2. Good conversation
3. Meeting new people
4. A new favorite song
5. A good book

5 Fears
1. Human cloning
2. Flying monkeys
3. Heights
4. Sharks
5. The E. Hognose snake

So there you go - do you feel like you know me better now? I hope so. I'd love to get to know you better too! So I tag any one of you who feels like doing this. You can use the same "top five" lists that I used, or make up some of your own.

*I hope you all know that that first paragraph was laced with sarcasm. I mean, I'd love it if I was one of your favorite people, or even in your fave five! But it's cool if I'm not. You can still read my blog.

E. HOGNOSE!!!! I hope you become a millionaire. I could cartainly use the money, but would rather not have to work for it. ;) If anyone wants to know Elizabeth's deepest darkest secrets, I'll blog about them tomorrow. ;) Check it out! (Just kidding, Elizabeth!)

You, of all people, should be the last person afraid of human cloning, I mean, c'mon! Ha ha! Thanks for playing along, and I do feel like I now know you just a little bit better. Love the new background, too!!

Elizabeth Downie said...

Haha! You're right, Priscilla - I should clarify, it's not so much human cloning I'm afraid of. It's this movie about human cloning I saw as a child called "Anna To the Infinite Power." My mom recorded it off the tv back in the 80s, thinking we'd like it. It scared me to death and I made her record over it. So it's more the movie and the idea than the actual thing ;) I added a link to an article about the movie.

Oh, puppy chow. Gotta make some of that asap.

Sarah said...

Ok, I'll accept your goes!

One of my fears: Scratching my face with an unknown jagged edge of my own fingernail. It’s happened, and it has left me with a scar!

One of my favorite things: Photographs!

One of my pet peeves: I gotta steal Elizabeth’s answer of the lotion pump – I am plagued by that, too! I have smudges on the wall I’ll never get off!

One of my deep dark secrets: Ok, don’t spread it around, but I have only once called in to vote on a reality show, and it was for the 2003 show “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!” I voted for Cris Judd!

If I were a millionaire, I’d take a year off of work and travel the world!

A snack I enjoy: Oreo double-stuffed peanut butter cookies with a cold glass of milk. I highly recommend it!!

I love puppy chow. I wish I had some right this very minute. And I'm glad I've been warned to not call you during Lost of the Office. That may have just saved our friendship. :)

Kelly said...

Wow. I am dumb. I just tried to post a comment but it didn't work and it took a sec to realize I didn't type anything.

Anyway, puppy chow is tops. No one knows what it is here. Buckeyes are somewhat unknown as well which is a shame. They are both excellent. Well, Cracker Barrel has some buckeyes but they are not nearly as good as the homemade ones.

Ben said...

What about "People honking at me while I'm jogging" for pet peeves? Doesn't that make it to the top 5?

Elizabeth Downie said...

Good point Ben. I should've added that. Well, I guess I pretty much covered that pet peeve in a previous post so I didn't want to get into it again. It gets me all riled up! lol
