Self-Destructing Questions

So there’s this award I received which has now sort of just turned into a question free-for-all in the blogverse. My friend Erin (who I mention in 75% of my posts, but she’s awesome, so deal with it), who received the award as well, came up with so many awesome questions that I can’t help but answer them. I know, this is sort of like cheating, but what can I say? I love questions. And now I don’t need to think of a topic to post on, so, lookee there. My job was just made that much easier.

Here we go!

1) What is your favorite book cover? There are so many. I’ll try to narrow it down to my top five. I can’t choose my absolute favorite. Sorry.

Incarnate

Something about the rainbow spectrum absolutely captivates me. Also, the math-equation-ness of the title is so geeky, it's awesome.

Steel

Outside In

JUST LOOK AT IT. It's gorgeous.

JUST LOOK AT IT. It’s gorgeous.

2) Favorite movie poster? I really like Catching Fire teaser poster.

Catching Fire Teaser

Or the Dark Knight Rises poster:

Dark Knight Rises Bane

It’s a tie between those two.

3) Butter or no butter on your popcorn? NO BUTTER! Butter is too greasy for me. I love white cheddar seasoning on my popcorn, though. LOTS of white cheddar.

4) What was the scariest movie you’ve ever watched? House at the End of the Street. I am not a horror movie person, never have been. However, Jennifer Lawrence was in it, and my friend took me for free (I can never turn down a free movie!), so I went. Call me a wimp, but I was absolutely terrified. I spent most of the movie with my fingers halfway shoved into my ears. I hate suspense scenes where there’s no music, but you know something’s going to pop out and scream, but you don’t know when…Yeah. Needless to say, for about a month after seeing it, I didn’t like walking around the house at night by myself.

5) Are you fluent in more than one language? Nope. I hope to take some kind of foreign language class in a year or two, but right now, I only know a few phrases in Spanish and something like two words in French and Latin.

6) How often do you change your desktop background on your computer? Every day? Never? Usually about once a month. If I edit a picture and really like it, I’ll set it as my DTBG, but I only get around to that occasionally.

7) Is there snow outside where you live? Yes! It just snowed again this morning and now we have between 6-10 inches of snow. YAY SNOW.

8) Do you have a favorite Youtuber? If so, who? I don’t have an ultimate favorite, but I do like Lindsey Stirling’s channel. Because she’s awesome. *shamelessly promoting*

9) Who was your favorite author as a child (“child” meaning 10 and under)? Andrew Clements. I read his entire oeuvre when I was between the ages of 7 and 10.

10) How is the view from your bedroom window? It’s okay. I can see the road and the driveway (which means I can spot intruders very easily; if I stand very still by the wall I can see everything and nobody can see me…*evil laugh*), but mainly I just see the woods that are in front of our house. So…yeah!

Oh, joy. Now I need to come up with more questions.

1) What is the hands-down worst movie you’ve ever seen?

2) What is your opinion of Will Ferrell?

3) Pepsi or Coke?

4) When writing, do you enjoy torturing your characters or do you like them too much to do so?

5) If you could play any one instrument well, which would you pick?

6) Which character, from any book, are you hopelessly in love with?

7) What is your least favorite word in the English dictionary?

8) Algebra or geometry?

9) Do you like reading “the classics?”

10) What is your opinion of Valentine’s Day? Do you love it or hate it?

Oh, yeah. It’s Valentine’s Day. Okay, happy Valentine’s Day. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of the holiday. It seems…saccharine. Also, I majorly dislike the color pink. But I don’t hate it.

So…yeah! Good-bye until we meet again…

  1. Erin says:

    Oh no! More awesome questions…What am I going to do?!?! *sigh*

    Well, I guess I’ll just answer them in the comments. If I made a post about it, we’re just going to keep going around and around in circles. :)

    1) What is the hands-down worst movie you’ve ever seen? It’s a tie between Eragon and The Last Airbender. I’d probably go with the latter though because it made the TV show look completely stupid (which it definitely isn’t) and THE MOVIE JUST PLAIN FREAKIN’ SUCKED. The end.

    2) What is your opinion of Will Ferrell? He makes me laugh. A lot. Like, roll-on-the-floor-laughing a lot. But I think he’s really weird too.

    3) Pepsi or Coke? Uh…I can’t really taste the difference between the two. I think…Pepsi maybe?

    4) When writing, do you enjoy torturing your characters or do you like them too much to do so? TORTURE TORTURE TORTURE TOR-…Ah, I mean, no! I’d never, ever torture any of my characters. *smiles innocently*

    5) If you could play any one instrument well, which would you pick? Cello. I mean, I already know violin and piano, so cello would definitely be my next pick.

    6) Which character, from any book, are you hopelessly in love with? TOO MANY MY FRIEND. TOO MANY.

    7) What is your least favorite word in the English dictionary? Geometry. The word sends shivers of fear down my back.

    8) Algebra or geometry? ALGEBRA MY PRECIOUSSSS. Screw geometry.

    9) Do you like reading “the classics?” Well…it all depends. To sum up my thoughts: I don’t like being forced to read the classics. I prefer to choose the classics that look interesting to me and give them a try, but I hate it when I have to force my way through a classic just for school. What’s the point, I ask?

    10) What is your opinion of Valentine’s Day? Do you love it or hate it? It’s definitely overrated. I only like the chocolate that comes along with it. But…maybe I’m so against the holiday only because I’m single and so alone. *sniffles* *spots chocolate* *forgets about being alone*

  2. I’m going to write the answers to the questions in the comments too.

    1) The worst movie is the Last Airbender. IT TOTALLY SUCKS! *gives Erin a high five for agreeing with me*

    2) Will Ferrell is hilarious, especially in Kicking and Screaming.

    3) Coke is the best! :)

    4) If you didn’t torture your characters, the story would be BORING. Torture obviously (that makes me sound mean).

    5) I would like to play the flute better, but if I had to pick an instrument I don’t know how to play it would be violin, guitar, or piccolo.

    6) There are too many characters I love in books.

    7) Any word that is hopelessly impossible to pronounce, or a phobia that I have. :P

    8) Algebra. I’ve only done very very simple geometry, but I would still choose algebra in a heartbeat.

    9) I like reading “the classics” when I’m not forced to read a certain book. I loved White Fang (which I chose to read) and Tom Sawyer (which I also chose to read).

    10) I’m ‘eh’ about Valentine’s Day. I’m alone *gives Erin another high five* so maybe that’s why, but still. I don’t care too much about it.

    BTW Andrea, those covers are beautiful!

  3. Andrea says:

    I like your answers, both of you! (Except about Will Farrell…I usually dislike him; but I haven’t seen enough movies to completely judge him. :P)

    Yes, aren’t they GORGEOUS?? When I was reading those books, I probably spent equal time staring at the cover as I was reading. :)

    LOL! Yes, Valentine’s Day is certainly more bearable when there’s chocolate. However, I’m sure it would be even better if you were not single and STILL had chocolate…beggars can’t be choosers, however…And of course I have to do this: *forever alone* :D

  4. You should watch Kicking and Screaming. That movie is hilarious. :)

    *Forever alone also*
