1. What is the first thing you do when you wake up?
Reach blindly for my glasses and my cup of water, because my mouth is pretty much the Sahara desert. Don’t get alarmed, I’m fine. It’s because I’m a nose/mouth breather. [Mouth breather sounds really gross, but I do…] I afterwards run to go pee, wash hands and then get on with making breakfast.
2. What is the 3rd picture on your phone? Share it!
Lookit us being a pair of nerds. And we’re mighty proud of it too. I’m kinda sad that we did not get to do this this year because of sickness on my part and a tropical storm blowing through the area at the time. We still got to dress up together, but sitting outside and people watching did not happen. We made do with sitting inside though, as much as my stomach allowed.
3. What TV show are you most excited about returning this Fall?
Grey’s Anatomy [I’m not done catching up with it, but I’m almost there!], Bones, and New Girl already have resumed airing but I’m looking forward to My Little Pony in November.
4. What is something really popular that you secretly (or not so secretly) loathe?
I absolutely despised Heroes of Cosplay. As a cosplayer, I think this show forgot to shed light on the people who don’t do this for money or competition. I get it, Yaya Han is pretty and she’s probably a really nice person but let’s focus more on the underdogs in our community. I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve witnessed friends crying and busting their asses well up into mere hours of convention go-time and don’t even get a shred of recognition for the literal blood, sweat and tears they put into their costumes.
I didn’t watch the show, but the commercials were enough to tell me that this show was going to be a train wreck, and from my Facebook news feed and Twitter stream [with the exception of like, one person who enjoyed it.] my gut feelings were true.
5. Do you have any pets? Tell us about them! Bonus points for pictures.
I have a [just turned on October 3rd] four-year old American Akita named The Intimidator.
6. If you could put together one outfit that represents you perfectly, what would it be?
Clothes would not represent me properly. There’s just WAY too much to my personality that it would eventually just turn into a ridiculous heap of clothing.
7. What is your favorite adult beverage?
Rum & Coke, Cosmopolitan and Mike’s Hard Lemonade in Original, Pink, Strawberry and Raspberry.
8. What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
I do not feel guilty for anything that brings me pleasure. Why should I?
9. What are 3 positive words to describe you?
I am told by others that I am funny, genuine and smart
10. What is your favorite Friday afternoon/evening activity?
Video [or PC] gaming, watching a movie or TV show on Netflix or reading a book on my Kindle while drinking a cup of tea or hot cocoa.
11. A day in the life: What does your typical day look like?
Boring. I flaf around on the computer for 10+ hours a day if I’m not sucked into a game, book or Netflix. There’s food, bathroom breaks, sleep and the occasional venturing into the big scary world squeezed in there though.
12. If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would it be?
Essentially NYC. But I’ll go anywhere as long as I can legally marry Sarah and of course have her at my side.
13. You’ve got a whole day to yourself…what will you do?
Dance around in and bake [not pot. :P] in my underwear. Sexytime? [Yes I am a girl who masturbates. Run for the hills.] *shrug* Depends on if I’m in the mood. But #11 pretty much still stands regardless if my parents are home or not.
14. Dream job?
I… don’t really know. People keep telling me to go into computer repair which is something I love to do as a hobby. I wouldn’t want it to be a profession, because what if I start hating it after that?
15. Least favorite chore?
Folding and putting away the laundry. I can handle putting it in the washer/dryer, but after that, I want no part of it.
16. When do you most feel like a rock star?
Convention season. Flaffing about in costume and getting pictures taken. My first year doing it I was nervous as hell and disliked all the attention. As I keep doing it every year, it gets a lot easier. It’s definitely easier when you got a single person or group along for the ride with you as well because they can uplift and support you along the way. I owe a lot to my AnimeNEXT group, because without them I probably wouldn’t have had the confidence to GET OUT THERE and I wouldn’t have met Sarah either.
17. What is something you are trying to improve within yourself?
I’m trying to be more independent. However my Mom is still cramping my style. *sigh*
