stella's birthday tag

song in my head: "america" by neil diamond
1. If you could be born on any day of the year, what day would it be?
Hmmm.....tough one. How 'bout October 25th? Sounds like a good date to me :)
2. What do you want your wedding dress to look like?
Like Stella, nothing strapless. Something with a long train....and something with lace like this
3. (confessions time) Tell an odd thing about yourself that nobody knows.
An odd thing about myself that *nobody* knows? Not even Leia? Impossible.
4. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I'm actually pretty content the way I am....except for my...um....teenage skin condition. (can't say it...)
5. Random time… tell us anything.
We did our abs on kickboards today and yesterday 'cause the ground was so wet. From now on, I am always doing exercises on a towel - no more kickboards! They're all so slippery and wet and hard and just generally not nice. Also, we did "invisible wall sits" today and even our coaches thought they were hard! Awesome. :)
6. Mac or PC?
Oh, this is a no-brainer. Mac all the way!
7. What's your favorite song right now?
Christian song: "Oh Love that Will Not Let Me Go" by Indelible Grace; other: "Forever in Blue Jeans" by Neil Diamond
8. Do you get very tan during the summer? Doing what?
Oh yeah! Doing what? Just being me. :) Thanks to my Cruzan grandfather, our skin tans very fast :) Okay, seriously, I do lie in the sun a lot because it feels so wonderful...and I get even more tanned :)

9. How long do you consider too long for hair to be?
For a girl, it depends on her own particular taste *and* how well she takes care of it. But guys....*tsk tsk* If they have to shake their head to get their hair out of their eyes - problem.
10. Big earrings or small?
It really depends on the earring. I prefer dangly earrings over studs (except my pearls), and most of my danglies are an inch to an inch and a half long, so I guess all I have are small earrings right now :)
11. Do you like lowercase?
in certain situations, yes. if someone sends me a text message without any capital letters, though, i don't like it so much. but for blog names, sidebars headers, and that sort of thing i like it. most of the time. in summary: when used properly, lowercase is awesome.
12. Is there anyone famous that you (or any part of you) looks like?
Uh, not that I know of. Ask Leia.
13. What is the weirdest thing you've ever photographed?
A pile of dishes in the drainer
14. What is something you say more than five times a day?
"Good grief." "Ugh." "Mama!" "Zuzu - enough." "Dad....."
15. Which do you think is better or worse: Facebook or twitter?
Considering that Facebook is just glorified twitter, it's hard to say. But I would probably say that twitter is better because you aren't giving out so much info about yourself. But Facebook is more practical if you're trying to connect to people. Since I have neither, I'm not really an authority on the subject :)
16. (time for a super-typical question) What's your favorite food?
MILKSHAKES!!!!!! If you want to be my best friend *forever*, buy me either a chocolate or a cookies and cream milkshake from Chick-fil-A. *mwah*
17. Do you like... Antique Stores or Thrift Stores?
Neither. I'm allergic to used clothes and furniture. Sometimes my allergies let up and I'll go into Goodwill and buy something - but that's rare.
18. What is something you've always longed to do or try, but never did?
Another good question (this is great, Stella!). Let's see...I'd LOVE to sing/act a main part in a musical sometime (read: Sound of Music, My Fair Lady, Phantom, Les Miz, Seven Brides, etc.)
19. Do you love or loathe peace signs? Why?
Peace signs irritate me. Maybe because many of the same people who walk around wearing them are also environmentalists and occasionally socialists who also irritate me. And that's probably because I'm growing up in a *super*-Conservative household :)
20. What's a guilty pleasure of yours?
Planning out my birthday *months* in advance just because I'm crazy about getting older :)

This tag was written by Stella as a little birthday celebration - her birthday's today! Head over and join in the fun :)


  1. omgoodness! :D i've taken a picture of a pile of washed dishes in a drainer too!!!!! :P how weird is that!?!?!??! :)

  2. I think acting the main part in a musical would be super amazing! If you ever get a part, I'm coming to see you. :) (That should provide some extra incentive.)

    I'm glad to find another of those oh-so-rare people who have neither facebook nor twitter. Hurray!

  3. 1. Haha...yeah, 'cause is one day really any better then the next??? Any day that's your birthday is pretty awesome. :D

    4. Amen, sister! I feel your pain.

    6. *sigh* Poor blind girl. One day you will realize that PC's rule. The PC era is coming!!!

    7. Hey, Mom has a friend who's blog is "Forever in Blue Jeans"...I didn't know there was a song too. Cool.

    12. Leia, who famous does Jo look like???

    16. Haha...I happen to know two people who work at Chick-fil-a :) Yep, so with you on this one. Only the one they get around Christmas (chocolate and peppermint something or another) would have to be my favorite.

    17. Same thing for Mom and all of us. That's why we only about once a year (if that) go to any place like that.

    19. They annoy me mostly because people put them on clothing and that is the pinnacle of tackiness. That and smiley faces on clothing. *shivers*

    20. You crack me up. :P My birthday is in a few weeks and I don't have a clue as to what I want to do!

    Love ya...

    p.s. Last night we watched Amazing Grace and, wow, it was really good! Review coming soon. Hopefully soon. :)
