FRIDAY 5 FOR FEBRUARY 25: AND THE WINNER IS…

Who in your life should win Best Director for his or her work in 2010?
um. that’s kinda way off for me to remember. i guess one of my colleagues who has to have everything her way. she delights in telling her minions what to do, what to think, etc.

Who in your life should win Best Actor and Actress in Supporting Roles for their performances in 2010?
aww. i don’t think she was in my gl in 2010 but it would have been my buddy last year 😦

For what 2010 project, display, or outfit will you win the Best Visual Effects award?
gosh i don’t even remember. i think that’s the year i got my board, so it’ll probably have to do something with that.

What terrific display of self-restraint or self-correction in 2010 earns you the Best Editor award?
oh i bite my tongue all the time. maybe not so much because i edit myself, but because i’m too meek to actually say it.

Of these Best Picture nominees, which title could best serve as the title of your 2010: 127 Hours, Black Swan, The Fighter, Inception, The Kids are All Right, The King’s Speech, The Social Network, Toy Story 3, True Grit, or Winter’s Bone?
gosh, i’ve only heard of 2 of those. yikes! um. i guess the kids are all right.

FRIDAY 5 FOR FEBRUARY 18: CONNECTIONS

Nowadays, just about everyone knows a couple who first met online. Among couples you know, who has the best story?
i don’t know anyone personally (except me) that had met their SO online (2 of ’em, for me), but i have heard of and know of other people from online, strangely enough. the one that made me go awwwwwwwww i read their story was this one. just like a fairy tale. of course, it helps that both are gorgeous. it’s kinda hard to have such a story when you’re not even considered cute. 🙂

Who among your real-life acquaintances might you never have been friends with if you hadn’t gotten to know each other online first?
i guess the aforementioned exes. they would’ve never approached me with the way i look, nor would i have been the one to start talking.

Of people you know online only, who would you most like to meet in real life?
i’m too shy to meet anyone.

In the past 365 days, what’s the longest you’ve gone without connecting in any way to the Internet, including email?
um. 30 minutes? 😀 no, i guess it might’ve been like several hours.

Who is the least-connected person you know in real life?
i guess one of my colleagues.

FRIDAY 5 FOR FEBRUARY 11: LATE NIGHTS

What’s the best thing about being awake when the rest of the world seems to be sleeping?
the stillness.

Where can you go when you get a case of the late-night munchies?
um. we have a zippy’s here; there’s also a jack-in-the-box. those are two places i hit up when i was pregnant and would wake up at 3am craving things. 🙂

What open-all-night establishment has saved you from catastrophe, and what were the circumstances?
well, i guess that was when i was pregnant. i craved tomatoes–even to the point that when i got desperate, i’d get a can of stewed tomatoes from the cupboard and eat that. well i didn’t have any more, and i was craving baaaad. so i ended up getting in my car at 3 am, probably close to 8 months pregnant, and driving to zippy’s so i could get their spaghetti plate. and i just devoured the sauce while in the car driving home. i probably got out looking like i was a werewolf coming back from a hunt.

oh, i just realized it didn’t have to be about food. walmart has saved me many times when i figure out what i want to do in the middle of the night but i don’t have the supplies for it.

What’s the worst thing about being awake when the rest of the world seems to be sleeping?
nothing at all. 🙂 unless you’re feeling amorous.

When you are up all night at home for whatever reason, what’s most likely to be on the television to keep you company?
when my tv used to work, it used to just be whatever was on. mostly infomercials, i guess. now, i just run netflix so i can hear the voices to soothe me to sleep.

FRIDAY 5 FOR FEBRUARY 4: TOO MUCH NOT ENOUGH

Who’s not as funny as he or she thinks?
one of my colleagues thinks she’s hilarious.

What’s not as big a deal as everyone else seems to think?
40. especially being single at 40. stop it, facebook ads!

What’s something people aren’t concerned enough about?
education.

What’s something in the grocery store that’s underrated?
hmm. i don’t know. i usually think things are overrated.

What do you pay too much attention to?
myself.
