I love these things ~ the great Kristi Gustafson posted this on her OTE blog today (http://blog.timesunion.com/kristi/27967/ff-my-story/), and I thought I'd join in the fun!
Hi, my name is: April
But you can call me: Shauna (Ferris Bueller flashback)
Never in my life have I: flown on an airplane.
My high school is: a lot different from when I graduated in 96!
When I’m nervous: I think of the scene in Legally Blonde when Elle was walking into Harvard for the first time and said out loud to her dog and herself, "Don't be nervous...everyone will love you!"
The last song I listened to was: REM ~ Man on the Moon
If I were to get married right now: I'd be a polygamist, considering I'm already married...
My hair is: in need of a major change (hello, brunette!)
When I was 4: I begged my parents for a cat, and ended up with four because my mom couldn't bear to break the sister kitties up.
Last Christmas: was surprisingly drama-free!
I should be: whittling down my boss' out-of-control email inbox
When I look down I see: really cute shoes
The happiest recent event was: walking in The Crossings with a dear friend, and deciding to make it a weekly endeavor - so much fun!
By this time next year: my husband and I will have BOTH paid our cars off ~ whew!
My current gripe is: people who feel the need to drive down my street blaring rap music. I've taken to shouting "No one thinks you're cool!" out my living room window when they drive by. I'm sure they don't hear me, but I feel better.
I have a hard time understanding: people who would rather be negative and miserable than positive and happy...it's a choice you make.
There are these girls: who spend an inordinate amount of time worrying about other people and not themselves.
If I won an award, the first person I would tell would be: my amazing husband!
I want to buy: a particularly gorgeous Kate Spade bag that I love, but would never spend the $395 to own.
I plan to visit: my grandmother next weekend - can't wait, I miss her like crazy!
If you spent the night at my house: you'd get to enjoy the sweet new air conditioner we just put in the window of the spare room.
The world could do without: centipedes, millipedes, and the like. *shudder*
Most recent thing I’ve bought myself: Coffee
Most recent thing someone else bought me: A fancy pen, which I adore.
My middle name is: Dawn
In the morning: I absolutely have to be up before 7AM, even on the weekends, or I feel like I'm wasting the day.
Last night I was: in bed early, watching the Golden Girls and thinking of Rue. :-/
There’s this guy I know who: is a million times more talented, thoughtful, and amazing than he will ever know. <3
If I was an animal I’d be: a cat
Tomorrow I am: cleaning out my scary clothes closet and selling/donating a whole lot of stuff.
Tonight I am: having a movie night at home.
My birthday is: not in April, despite my name. :-)
