Tag, I’m it

It seems I have been tagged (thanks Mooselicker). Until today I had never even heard of tagging another blogger, so I will try to do this right, but please bear with me.

From what I can glean, I am to answer the eleven questions posed by the one who tagged me, then tag eleven others with a list of my own eleven questions.

The questions posed to me and my responses are below.

1. When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? What did you think you would become?

When I was very little, I wanted to be a ballerina, even took 11 years of ballet lessons.

2. Who is your biggest celebrity crush?

Eddie Izzard

3. Angels, Bigfoots, or Aliens; which one do you think is most likely to exist?

Aliens are most likely, in my opinion, however, I am skeptical as to the existence of all three choices.

4. What is something that everybody seems to enjoy that you hate?

Coffee and beer. I never acquired a taste for either.

5. If you opened your front door and I was there, what would you say? What would you really be thinking?

I’d say a polite Hello. I’d be thinking, how the hell did you get my address?

6. What is your favorite movie and why?

I have favourites in many different categories, so it’s almost impossible to pick one over all the others, but if I had a gun to my head, I would have to choose All About Eve because it excels on every level, writing, direction, acting, etc. and I love Bette Davis.

7. There has to be something that you believe you’re the best at, what is it?

Scrabble

8. Who is the ugliest person you know and why are they so ugly?

I’m going to take this question as ugliest person I know of, so I can include famous people. I instantly thought of Kim Kardashian, because she is so incredibly shallow and stupid, which are traits that I find ugly, but then thought, no. Her mother, Kris Jenner would be uglier for shoving her shallow and stupid family down our collective throats. But then, I suppose the ugliest of them all would be the E! Channel executive that decided to stink up the air with them in the first place.

9. Is love unconditional?

Never

10. Lots of people have addictions. What is yours?

It used to be cigarettes, but I quit. So now I’d have to say, the internet.

11. What is the nicest compliment you have ever received? What is something that you would like to be complimented more about you?

Nicest compliment is when someone tells me they like my writing. That is also the thing I crave more compliments about.

Here are the eleven questions I am asking the people I tagged.

1. Why did you start your blog?

2. Who is your favourite actor/actress?

3. Name your favourite band/musician?

4. What is your favourite TV Show?

5. Who is your favourite scientist?

6. Name your favourite author?

7. What do you do with your free time when you are not online?

8. If you had to live in another country, which country would you choose and why?

9. What three words best describe you?

10. What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

11. If you were throwing a dinner party, and could invite any 10 people (living or dead) who would you invite?

And lastly, here is who I tagged.

  1. Can I post this here? I don’t even know 11 other bloggers, and I don’t tend to pass these things on. But I will be a good sport and answer your questions! And possibly post my answers as a blog entry…. Let’s see what they are, first…

    1. Why did you start your blog?

    I have been fed up for a long time with sexism toward women. Lately I’m gaining a sense of myself and a voice. I find it important that feminism and promotion of women not be discounted by the excuses that they come across too negative, or that feminists hate men. I aim for a positive attitude, toward women and men.

    2. Who is your favourite actor/actress?

    Do you mean famous ones? I have friends who act… Famous ones would be Ashley Judd, Johnny Depp, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Gary Oldman.

    3. Name your favourite band/musician?

    Porcupine Tree, Garbage, VAST, Ekova

    4. What is your favourite TV Show?

    >.< Ones about death. Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, Bones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    5. Who is your favourite scientist?

    Rachel Carson. Empowered woman and environmentalist.

    6. Name your favourite author?

    Charlotte Bronte and Emily Bronte are both among my favorites.

    7. What do you do with your free time when you are not online?

    Art. Photography. Spend time in nature.

    8. If you had to live in another country, which country would you choose and why?

    I really want to go to Bali, to visit. I might like to live in France, because they recommend (and fund) spa treatments as part of healthcare. They take lots of vacation. Beautiful art… architecture… language… countryside. Maybe Ireland. I need to travel!

    9. What three words best describe you?

    Passionate. Artistic. Indecisive ;-P

    10. What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

    Don't know that I have any (typed while eating chocolate).

    11. If you were throwing a dinner party, and could invite any 10 people (living or dead) who would you invite?

    All four of my [deceased] grandparents, one of whom I never got to meet. My two parents. My brother. Myself. Two skilled documentarians (video and still photographer).
