Me too, me too!

All the cool bloggers did this survey, and I’m nothing if not cool. (or a follower, either way, I’m taking the dizzamn survey!)

1. What’s your middle name?:
 It’s Jessup. It’s not actually a girlie middle name. It’s my mom’s last name because she didn’t change her name when she married my dad. (And I’m not changing my name either. Why mess with a good thing?)

2. Is your cell phone a flip phone?:
 No. It’s completely crap-tastic. I don’t hate it anymore, but I did at first. I used to lose my phone on a monthly basis, so I’m not allowed to buy $$ phones. I have to get the cheapest crap they’re peddling.

3. Have you ever been to New Jersey?: Yeah, but not very often. I’ve taken the bus to IKEA, which is both amazing and nightmarish at the same time. Oh, and I went to Rutgers University last weekend to watch my boyfriend give a physics lecture. Good times, lemme tell ya…

4. What’s your favorite soda?: Yes, I have a soda addiction. So what? I drink a lot of Diet Coke, but to make it that much worse for me, I often drink the caffeine free kind—you know, just to make sure I’m really loading up on as many chemicals as possible.

5. Do you have satellite?
: Um, i don’t think so? Do most Manhattanites have that? I think it’s just reg. cable. I feel dumb now.

6. Where did you go to college?:
 It’s called Bard—no, not Barnard. Just Bard. It’s a liberal arts school upstate. An awesome school for anyone who wants to dick around for a bit and then focus on art/film/writing/anthropology or anything with the potential of being REALLY hard to find work in later in life…

7. What’s the longest road trip you’ve been on?
: I’ve been on a few road trips that lasted about a week-10 days a piece. Highlights have included the Grand Canyon, Graceland, the TeePee motel (yes, we actually stayed in a TeePee!), and a replica of the garden of Eden & a log cabin made out of cement (yes, even the log cabin) by an old civil war vet. That was awesome. Oh, and the giant chest of drawers.

8. Did you go to a private school?:
 Yes, and I hated it.

9. What’s your favorite smiley?: Dumb question. Next.


10. Do you buy lottery tickets in hopes of winning?:
 Never. The lottery is such a waste. Who needs to get shot down like that ALL the time?

11. What year were you born in?
 Everyone seems to lie for this question, or somehow skirt the issue. Is that a “creepy internet stalker” avoiding thing? I guess I won’t reveal either. But I was born when everything were a lot cooler.

12. Do you like the smell of Sharpies?:
 Bleh. Revolting. Insta-headache.

13. What does your screensaver look like?:
 Right now it’s that picture I posted a few weeks ago of my cat reading a copy of my book, Back Talk. (and that’s actually my wallpaper. I don’t think I have a screensaver).

14. Do you have an iPod?:
 No. It’s the ghetto version, called an iRiver. I didn’t want to give into the iPod craze.

15. What’s your biggest pet peeve?
: Ugh, there are so many. I hate it when people ask “Are you okay?” when you’re clearly not, but don’t want to talk about it. Oh, and I hate it when people are running late and don’t call to tell you. Hate that. And those baby leashes. Your child is not a dog!

16. What shoe size do you wear?:
 8

17. What’s your favorite kind of cereal?: I know it’s lame, but I like regular old wheat flakes. Sugar cereal makes me feel like a bad person.

18. Do you ever listen to Classical music?:
 I do occasionally, but i don’t, like, go to parties and say “wow, some classical music would really hit the spot right now.”

19. What kind of instruments do you play?: 
 Used to play violin.

20. Do you like Girl Scout cookies?:
 Yum. Esp. those ones with the coconut and caramel and stripey chocolate. Can’t remember what they were called. Samoas or something? Oooh, I really want one now.

21. Have you ever ridden in a limo?: 
I want to say yes, but I think I’m picturing the Prom Limo from all my favorite teen movies. Unless I actually did go to prom with Freddie Prince Jr…

22. Do you like Hummers?: Nooooo! Evil ginormo cars are destroying our environment. We all know that if you have a big car you’re overcompensating for something else. Get over it already & buy a Prius!

24. Are you scared of horses?: 
I was bucked off a horse once and landed between a big rock and a cactus, but no. Not really.

25. Do you like milk chocolate or dark chocolate?: Dark. (but I’ll take what I can get).

26. Do you wear glasses?:
 I’ve got 20/10 vision, biatch!

27. Does it annoy you when people misspell things?:
 Eh, only a little.

28. Do you like the beach or the mountains?:
 Both, I guess. But I’d rather “go” to the beach, and just “look” at the mountains.

29. Have you ever taken cough medicine when you didn’t have a cough?:
 Verrry sneaky Mr. Survey. No, I’m not a recreational Robitussen abuser.

30. Have you ever been to band camp?
: Would that question have made this survey without the obnoxious American Pie franchise? No. (but actually, my sister went to band camp).

31. Do you know any guys with a receding hair line?:
 Sadly, I know several, and have for years. Hellloooo, heard of rogain you losers? just kidding.

32. Do you know what Chacos are?:
 Uh, is it candy? Is it something really relevant and I look like a total idiot for not knowing the answer?

34. Have you ever watched Room Raiders on MTV?:
 Laugh all you want, but I don’t even get MTV. So no. But I love My Super Sweet 16. That show is the bomb.

35. What’s the best Christmas present you’ve ever got?: I was really f*cken stoked the year I got a Nintendo…

36. What’s your favorite Popsicle flavor? Watermelon!!! or Cantaloupe.

37. Did your parents give you an allowance?: They used to. God, I would KILL for some allowance.

38. Did you ever watch Rugrats when you were little? I love cartoons, but Rugrats always seemed too annoying. Jem: now there‘s a worthwhile cartoon! Or Muppet Babies.

39. How many myspace groups have you joined? I don’t know. A couple? Myspace is so overrated.

40. What do you think of standardized tests?:
 Evil.

41. What’s the craziest thing you have ever done?
 Uh, i don’t know! Lot’s of crazy stuff. Danced on tabletops, karaoke… I chopped off the tip of my finger this year on Christmas eve. That shit was CRAZY!

42. Have you ever cheated on a test?:
 Ooooh, um…. Look over there! It’s Christian Bale wearing assless chaps! (phew, got away with that one!)

43. Is tomorrow your birthday?:
 No, but it’s really soon.

44. Have you ever choked on your own spit?: 
Gross! But yes.

45. Do you like roller coasters?: In a masochistic way, yes. I hate them and I have terrible panic attacks while I’m in the little rickety car going up-up-up, but as soon as it’s over, I’m like “woo hoo! let’s do that again!”

46. When was the last time you went roller blading?
 In a past life as a non-clumsy, athletic person.

47. Have you ever wished you had a twin?:
 I practically do. My sister and I look a lot alike.

48. Do you have a caffeine addiction?: No, and I feel like such an outcast for it. I’m like the only person I know who doesn’t need coffee in the morning.

49. Do you get claustrophobic easily?:
 This one time I tried on a satin dress in the sweltering summer heat, and it got stuck over my head. That was a bad day. I also hate big crowds (you’ll NEVER catch me in Times Square on new years ever, and i think anyone who does that is INSANE!!)

50. Would you ever kiss on the first date?:
 Only if the guy paid me.
Totally kidding! Uh, if i liked him, sure. Not that this is even relevant. I’m never going on another first date again! Wow, that sounds kind of weird to say. But it’s a good thing!!

    OH my gosh! You chopped off the tip of your finger?? Sounds like really painful. I love the gigantic chest of drawers, it’s cool!

  2. I love surveys.

    you’re right Jem was the bomb, or should I say jem, jem, she’s truly outrageous, truly, truly,truly outrageous…woah….Jem.

    yeah, I used to tape jem, that is how much I loved it.

  3. Jem! You must name your first born Jerrica, I insist. That was her normal person name right? I need to google and relive the Jem days right now.

  4. We are making the dreaded but necessary Ikea pilgramage,this weekend,for a stylish AND practical loft bed for my oldest baby,and yes its in the burbs(Frisco).
    As an equity and Sag actress,I kept my maiden name professionally,and legaly changed to the hubs for sentimental. I love it that way,but it can get confusing ,and at times complicated when getting paid.
    My mother just dug out my Jem doll(I was probably too old for it when I recieved it for X-mas,but Mommys love to keep giving their little girls dolls,and I loved the cartoon. The doll came with cassette tapes,that I wish I had.
    Diet Red bull,thats my caffeine and carbonation of choice!

  5. WAT says:

    The picture of you with yer mangled finger is hilarious. LOVE IT!

    I’ve never had an issue with losing cell phones and have been quite responsible for that matter, UNTIL…

    Last night I had my new cell in the pocket of my swim trunks and forgot and went in to the gym jacuzzi and drowned my phone! ARGH! I AM SO MAD! Or is it sad?

    🙁

  6. sophie says:

    ah! the giant cest of drawers! that is amaznigly cool. where it it located?

  7. Dona says:

    Haha…loved the response to “Have you ever cheated on a test…”

    I have to concur!

  8. seb says:

    Oh, I haven’t seen this around… I guess I don’t know cool people, which really disappoints me. And by default that means I’m not cool. Shit.

    So you went to Bard, that’s great, one of my best buddies went there, he loved it.

    Wow, I’m sorry about your finger. That must’ve been freaky. I don’t ever want to lose a finger, except maybe a pinky, those are pretty useless.

  9. andy says:

    Yes, she WOULD kiss on a first date. Don’t believe any other answer. Maybe not if the dude was ugly, I can’t speak to that.

    The giant chest of drawers is in High Point, NC. There’s a bunch of old furniture manufacturing towns in that area which have crazy oversized furniture. Must be something in the water.

    I’m pretty sure I used to wear the child-leash. Don’t see them so much these days though, I guess they got really non P.C. But if you’d had to keep an eye on a weirdo like three-year-old-me, you’d probably come to appreciate the benefits of a leash!

  10. jayne says:

    haha! and i loved mupper babies, ralph the dog was always my favorite b/c he was a dog hehe….i feel the same way about rollercoasters, private school, and caffeine…

  11. jayne says:

    woah, just noticed my typo, mupper babies…sounds like a much cooler show haha

  12. Ooh, sorry about the finger. At least you can still type! And I feel like I know you much better now, so thanks!

    Steph

  13. alex says:

    hee hee hee christian bale….

  14. That picture of you and your finguer is great, you look hilarious!

  15. emma says:

    Wait, did you chop off your finger, like, on purpose? In a sort of masochistic thing? Or was it a drunken accident (because in that case, I can 100% relate). Either way, that picture made me laugh like a mad drunken monkey on uppers.
    Whither the Christian Bale in the assless chaps? Don’t tease me, Alex, my poor weak heart can’t take it.
    JEM. YES! Finally a fellow Jem lover. Do you have the Jem & The Holograms tee?
    Er, yeah, me neither.
    I’m off to be a grownup and do things…(totally not in a Jem t-shirt, by the way. Who would wear one of those…?
    Hey, there’s Christian Bale in the chaps again! Shake it, Bale!)

  16. emma says:

    OY. Are any of my comments working?

  17. Dan says:

    “But I was born when everything were a lot cooler.”

    See! Al Gore was right! Damned global warming!!

  18. emma says:

    Alex, I can’t comment! This blog is not letting me comment and it is driving me INSANE.

  19. emma says:

    Oy WHY CAN’T I LEAVE A COMMENT? This blog is not letting me comment.

  20. Alexa says:

    Fun stuff. I need to do a survey, lol.

  21. Celise says:

    Jem and the Holograms! I used to loved that cartoon, too. And her boyfriend was hot, too!

  22. molly g. says:

    hey girl..
    i’m back..

  23. touche says:

    hahaha, I totally forgot all about Muppet Babies!!!!
    That show was bomb.com.

  24. Kit says:

    Hey I just found out we’re friends on Amazon today and I was reading about your book. I will definitely give it a read! It sounds really good. :] Btw, your survey was hilarious! Hope your book will be just as funny.

    Live. Love. Lacoste.
    Prepster

  25. Holy shit Alex, I looooooooove that picture of you. I just want to pinch your cheeks. Then give you a hug. And the tip of my finger to replace yours.

  26. pins&needles says:

    That pic of you with your bandaged finger really convinced me of doing this survey. Cuz I’m cool like the other kids too. Haha!
