Cuz Sarah's Cool, I'm Copying Her :)

Swiped from S2K. I tried to post it in a comment to her, but it said I exceeded the word limit by more than twice the allowable amount. So it's here.

Getting-To-Know-You Survey

1. When is your birthday and how old are you?
Dec 2nd! Woot! I give a different answer every time, not because I'm hiding anything but rather because I honestly forget.

2. How did you get your name?
My mom heard April Steven's and thought April was a pretty name. I think my dad may have picked out Faith. Sarah is one of my favorite names, though.

3. What was your first word?
It was not mommy. Mom wasn't happy about that. It might have been daddy. Her theory, which I believe, is that she was always around me, so I never had a need to call on her. She said the first time she ever heard me say "mommy" was when she was in the kitchen. She heard me yell "mommy" and came out to discover me stuck on the top of the couch. I'd climbed up somewhere and couldn't figure out how to get back down. She figured I'd known how to say mommy for quite some time, but never needed to before.

4. What was the weirdest thing you did as a kid?
Golly, I don't remember. I'm sure I did all sorts of weird stuff. I'll have to ask my parents.
Sarah's tornado story is so cute!!

5. Do you sleep naked?
Sometimes. I actually have doctors orders to at the very least not sleep in underwear. I get cold easily, so usually I'm in sweats or pjs. I love love love pajamas.

6. Orange juice or apple juice?
both. at the same time. yum!

7. Would you dress as the opposite sex?
I have done so. And I've been trying to talk Monkeys for years into a particular dress.

8. Soup or Salad?
Like S2K, Usually Salad. I'm not a big soup person. I like it when i'm having it, but don't ever crave it or think to order it except at McGuires.

9. Have you ever bought a car?
Three in my life. My lovely green Cavalier (RIP Spook!), My awesome blue Beatle (yay VIN!). Monkeys' Jeep in the Big City.

10. Have you ever been expelled from school?
Nope

11. Favorite age you have been so far?
Sarah's answer was perfect: I don't have one. All of them have pluses and minuses. Besides I pretty much Never feel my age.

12. Have you ever been surfing?
I can't swim, so I generally avoid water related activities with the exception of taking showers. I do like our yearly trips to Shipwreck island with Toaster & Redd and will go sailing at the drop of a hat, but otherwise i don't do water.

13. Have you ever gone skiing?
Nope - but i want to try!!!!

14. Have you ever been in a car accident?
We got hit by a school bus full of deaf kids!! Most of the time it's been in cars other people were driving, but one time someone rear ended me when they failed to stop at a red light. Not my fault, and no damage done to my car, although a wee bit was done to my back.

15. Ok! Fess up who was your first kiss?
Real kiss - um a redhead I dated after I graduated from high school. Never date a redhead! :)

16. Have you ever fallen in love with your best friend?
Again, I love Sarah's answer!!! I'm somewhat in love with all my best friends.

17. What's the best concert you've seen?
I would put an old school Lost Boys concert very high in the fun zone. Coulton was hysterical, too. I want to see a Barenaked Ladies concert, I've heard they are unbelievably great.

18. Do you like dancing?
Yes! Left arrow, right arrow, top, top, bottom!! In tap shoes.

19. Have you ever written a song?
Yes. Not good ones.

20. What's your favorite book?
LOL ummmmm. That's a horrible question. Harpo Speaks is one of my favorites. I'm just going to say that one. Although, if you go by my bedroom it's Alice in Wonderland.

21. Have you ever prank-called someone?
I was in a room with people pulling prank calls. They put me on the phone for one of them, but almost immediately took the phone from me. I am incapable of prank calls.

22. Do you believe in soul mates?
AGAIN i love Sarah's answer. Sort of. I believe all my closest friends are a soul mate. They are a part of who I am as a person. ALSO, I believe in Soul Mates, but believe you can have more than one.

23. Do you like your name?
I absolutely love my name. I love it to pieces. It's weird how much I love my name.

24. How much cash is in your wallet right now?
Maybe $20 ish. Not sure. I don't normally have cash, but for some reason I have some right now.

25. Have you ever failed a grade?
I have gotten a failing grade, but I've never been held back. :)

26. Have you ever been abducted by aliens?
I'm not allowed to comment on that. My dad once told me that if aliens approached him and told him they would take him into space and let him travel the stars with him, but he had to decide right then and couldn't send word back to his loved ones (me and Mom), that he would go! I got a bit upset that he wouldn't say goodbye to me. I also decided if my dad ever disappeared I would know he was taken up to the stars. :)

27. Have you ever kissed someone in the rain?
Monkeys says yes. I don't remember, but I think the movies might make it more memorable and romantic looking than it really is.

28. Name 4 things you always have with you
I never always have things with me! I am TERRIBLE about leaving things accidently. I usually have a key, but I have given keys to Toaster and my mom because I forget sometimes. I usually have my cell phone, but it's not always on. Monkeys is usually with me - LOL! I'm always dressed, so I guess I always have pants. :)

29. What's the first thing you do in the morning?
Press doze on the alarm clock! Repeatedly!

30. What's your guiltiest pleasure?
Right now, snacking. :) Love the holidays!

31. Do you like yourself?
Agree with Sarah - I like the person I am now.

32. What is your favorite girl's name?
Ever since I was a teenager I wanted an Emma Elizabeth. (Emma for Emma Peel; Elizabeth is a family name and a Biblical name.) If twins, Hannah something. If triplets, Sarah Something. Possibly Abagail.

33. What is your favorite boy's name?
When I was a teenager I wanted to name my son Nicholas Sebastian (if twins, Noah Hays). Recently I became very fond of Logan Gabriel Alexander - not sure why, Wolverine Archangel and Lex Luther appeal so much to me. Unfortunately, I will not have the option of picking a boy's name because we will have a IV. I've tried to convince him to switch the middle name to that of his uncle since he loved his uncle dearly but never really knew his dad, BUT he cannot resist the lure of the IV.

34. What is your dream job?
I want to shine.

35. Superman or Spiderman?
AGAIN I'M WITH SARAH!!! um... ew? Batman

36. Chocolate or Vanilla?
caramel

37. If your life were a movie what would it be called?
It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad Mad Lady Red

38. Are you a morning person?
AGAIN I'M WITH SARAH!! Hell NO

39. Right handed or left handed?
Right handed with a embarrassing inept but kind of cute left

40. Innie or Outtie?
Innie. Well hidden.

41. Have you ever thrown up on anyone?
Yep! Food poison sucks. Projectile style.

42. Have you ever seen a dead body?
At lots of funerals, of course. We gathered around as my mother-in-law passed; that was hard. I've never found a dead body, if that's what they question is asking. I hope I never do - iiiiick.

43. Have you ever cheated on someone?
No

44. Have you ever done something really stupid that you are still laughing about today?
Loads and Loads of times

45. Have you ever wanted to be a model?
Thanks to my current addiction to America's Next Top Model, I have a bigger interest in modeling now. I don't think I could be a model, but it looks a lot more interesting than I first thought it was.

46. Have you ever cried in school?
Yes

47. Thing you say too often?
AGAIN I'M WITH SARAH!! "like" I hate it when I use that word.

48. Do you like thunderstorms?
I love storms! I love sitting by the window reading and listening to the patter of the rain and the rumble of the thunder.

49. What's the last thing you watched on tv?
I've got Criminal Minds on right now. :) LOVE ZOMBIE STRIPPERS!!!

50. Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
on the phone by my choice - my mom, but i talked to loads of students/coworkers today. EDIT - I had to stop this meme when Toaster called to ask about class last night :) So now my answer is Toast.

Finish the following ...

I believe: I have trouble coming up with answers to these kinds of questions...eeeps.

I am: hungry!!!

I feel: blessed with the friends and family I have in my life (near and far)

I know: why you like me (it's cuz of my haircut and my clothing... )

Sometimes I: work mutilated barenaked ladies lyrics into the answers to these questions

It's not commonly known: well, if it were, it *would be* commonly known, so there you go.

Never under any circumstances: cross the streams.

Isn't it weird that: I seriously cannot think of any decent answer to this thing?

Right now: I'm relieved this portion of the meme is over - this was hard.

BTW - this was Sarah's answer - Isn't it weird that: you get to know people more the farther away they are. Is so true. Mine are lame, but only cuz I my mind goes blank with this kind of question style. I love reading everyone else's answers, though!!! :) :) :)

That's right... my answers Kick Fanny!! :D

I'm glad you will go sailing. Kenton and I wanna take you guys on a "cruise" here. We were afraid you guys wouldn't go. By cruise I mean a smaller big ship out along the coast so we can see icebergs and whales and stuff. Actually that's a whole like two day plan we have.

My dad told me once he saw a UFO... but... he also did lots of things he shouldn't have.

If you have girls one day... you should totally name one Sarah. It's an awesome name for everyone. :D My friend Leah is Pregnant again and she's going to name her daughter Sarah.

Zombie Strippers was hillarious and lots of fun! Did you watch the deleted scenes? There were a few that should have been left in.

Oh... and I HATE the bit on the end too. I hate it enough I nearly cut them off. It is true about learning more about people when you are far away. I think it's easier to say certain things threw emails and phone calls. Plus when you have no other way to stay connected... you talk more. So while I have missed you all terribly, moving has also been a good thing. Now if we do move to NC at least I will be closer to a few of my loved ones.
