I got this post idea from Ubi Dubium , she got it from Shameful Sheep. Here I answer 25 questions about me:
1. Who are you named after?
Quixie comes from the word quixotic which means “foolishly impractical in the pursuit of ideals” capricious or unpredictable. Hey, I like to think so.
My real name I’m sure my parents picked out of a baby book of popular names as it is quite popular. I don’t really like it very much because it makes me think of a Valley Girl ala:
2. Do you like your handwriting?
I like it! What do you think?
3. What is your favorite lunch meat?
I’m not a big lunch meat fan. Though I don’t mind roast beef.
4. Longest relationship?
11 year marriage. Before that it was 8 years on/off relationship in high school/college. I guess I’m hard to get rid of.
5. Do you still have your tonsils?
Yes, and they are YUGE! Seriously, every time I go to the dentist or doctor they comment about how big my tonsils are. If I were a man I’d probably be proud of how big they are. But it sucks because if they got swollen due to a cold or something I gag. Probably more than you wanted to know.
6. Would you bungee jump?
I’ll let Carrie Bradshaw’s expression speak for me:
I mean I probably would have if I’d had the opportunity 10 years ago. Now I’m a chicken.
7. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Nope! Notice the heel:
Good way to ruin good shoes.
8. Favorite ice cream?
Coffee! Butter pecan. Anything with caramel. Cookie dough. Mint chocolate chip. I like them all!
9. What is the first thing you notice about people?
I was going to say their “aura” (or whatever non-wonky description of the intuitive feel/personality/emotions they give off)
but really what I probably notice first is their height as I’m very aware of how little I am in comparison to most people. Most people say “eyes” but I don’t believe them. Though I think a person’s eyes and smile sticks with me more than anything else.
10. Football or baseball?
What, these are my two choices? Blech. If I have to choose a traditional sport I’d choose basketball, I guess.
Though I’d rather watch one of these sports:
Did you know that playing video games is an actual professional sport? Yes, really! It’s called eSports or pro-gaming and you can make a living off of it if you have the right sponsors.
11. What color pants are you wearing?
Dark blue jeans. Boring! I should have said purple with yellow polka dots or something.
12. Last thing you ate?
Some sort of fritata with mushrooms and peppers. I’m eating low-carb these days (yay to weight loss!)
13. If you were a crayon what color would you be?
Periwinkle because a. it’s such a quirky word and I’m quirky b. it’s blue and I’m often blue 3. it’s a beautiful flower! (which I like to think I am whenever I’m feeling confident)
14. Favorite smell?
So, I really love the smell of freshly brewed coffee, though I don’t like the smell of cafes because there is often a sickly-sweet smell that goes along with it. I also like the smell of clean clothes and suntan lotion.
But this smell (Indonesian Teak) is to die for. So sexy!
15. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?
My counseling center reminding me of my appointment tomorrow. Yeah, I don’t like talking on the phone so I do it as little as possible.
16. Hair color?
Well, it used to naturally be this:
But now it’s naturally ash brown.
Look at the grey! I’m only 36, people. Yikes. Maybe I should change my avatar to this:
After seeing this I just made an appointment to get my hair colored!
17. Eye color?
Blue-grey with a tiny bit of green/hazel. This is close:
18. Favorite foods to eat?
Potatoes! Especially cooked this way:
My favorite dessert:
Mmm. Or this:
But this is my favorite low carb meal:
Now I’m mucho hungry.
19. Scary movies or happy endings?
Okaaay…isn’t “happy endings” an innuendo for something or am I just perverse? If you mean movies that end happily… no I’m not into those. I don’t usually like comedies. I do like psychological thrillers, Sci-Fi, anything thought provoking.
My two favorite movies (thus far) are:
20. Last movie you watched?
Um…it’s been a while. I think Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them (the Harry Potter spin-off). Don’t go see it – it was awful. Really, I hate movies. Why go to the theater when I can sit at home and watch Netflix. Btw, if you are looking for Netflix shows to watch check these out:
21. Favorite holiday?
I hate holidays. Actually, it’s just that I’m such a sentimental person that they make me depressed. I’m not sure I can explain it well.
22. Beer or wine?
I like Samuel Adams beer and Pink Moscoto wine. Though I don’t drink these days because of my low-carb diet.
23. Night owl or early bird?
24. Favorite day of the week?
Monday. Don’t kill me! I like Monday because weekends I have to spend time with my family. I know, I’m horrible! I just like my alone time and since I’m unemployed I get that during the week.
