I Should Be Sleeping...

Tyler tagged me. Go check out her blog! (I believe most of you already do. Blog-land makes Kevin Bacon look weak--only 2 or 3 degrees of separation here. I can't decide if that's cool or very, very sad.)

If you could be in any TV show when you were a kid, what would it be?
Age 5: Today’s Special.
Age 10: Saved by the Bell. I remember thinking (if I were on the show) I’d be able to steal Zach away from Kelly. Obviously I thought very highly of myself at that age.

What was your favorite Christmas gift as a child?
Teddy Ruxpin (& Grubby). I adored this duo.... until the tape player messed up and I watched Teddy die a slow and horrible death. “Heeeeey everybooooodyy-y-y-y.” (Silence)

What actress would you want to play you if your life was made into a movie?
This question was so much harder than I thought. I spent my entire drive home from work trying to think of someone and all I could think of was who it would not be. That list would include (but is not limited to):
Miley Cyrus
Paris Hilton
Jessica Alba
Cameron Diaz
Drew Barrymore

Shall I continue? I shan't. I asked Michael to name an actress and within 12 seconds he'd named three: Rachel McAdams, Charlize Theron, and Kate Bosworth. Don't think I agree with him but what a smart guy for choosing such pretty ladies. :)

What decade fad do you wish would come back?
Mid to late 60s – Short skirts, shift dresses, awesome hair.

What song describes your life?
I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends

(Have you seen this movie? If not, I beg you to watch it. So good.)

What was your favorite subject in school?
Math (my all-time favorite was Algebra II) and English.

If you could have a dream job for a day, what would it be?
Normally I’d say “author” but there’s no way I could write an entire book in one day and I’d feel sheepish the next day when I'm back at my real job and have only written 20 pages. So I’ll say one of those people on the travel channel that visits amazing hotels in fabulous places and tells the viewer about their glorious experiences. My dad says I remind him of Samantha Brown and I think that means I should take her job
(ironically, I find her quite annoying so I'm not sure what that says about me).

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
I realize I’m turning my back on the ostrich and manatee by not picking either (hellooooo pea-sized brain and endangered species—no thanks!), so I think I’d say a thinner version of Thumbs Magee: good food, good parents, no responsibilities, no competition.

I don't know the official rules so I am going to tag two people. I know, I'm such an overachiever.



Good night everyone!

Wise choice in foregoing the manatee. I mean, that would make you endangered and stuff, and that can't be a fun way to live. No offense to Dana or anything.

I have another actress for you...Elisha Cuthbert from 24. Blonde and beautiful, yet still that girl next door type.

Tagged??? Oh brother. Ok.

Impressive that Michael knows who all those actresses are! I'm not sure Scott would know anyone on your "not" or "Michael" listings! And yes, Mod is definitely hot.

You were 10 when Saved by the Bell was on? I'm going to have to Google that to double check your math. Ok, I'm not going to google it, but one summer in college I watched it every day at 11 on TBS. It was greatness.

Oh, and Algebra II? I so wish you could see the look of disdain on my face right now. ;)

Fun! Is it bad that I've never heard of the TV show Today's Special? I definitely think it would be fun to be a cat--you can sleep and eat whenever you want and you are totally allowed to be as moody as you want too...people actually expect it! I can't think of who should play you in a movie. I'm trying to remember what your "real" name was. Was it Heather?

Ok, I love that you chose Today's Special! My sister and I LOVED that show when we were little, and no one else seems to remember it!!! It was awesome! :)

Thanks a whole lot for reminding me how much I miss my Teddy Ruxpin. I'm real depressed.
