Some people call me Becs, but not all the time
PETS:No animals. I'm allergic and too busy to be responsible
STUFFED ANIMALS:I have a baby harp seal named Snuggles. He's just so cute.
OUIJA BOARDS?:Eh. I don't believe in that stuff.
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK OF IN THE MORNING?:Do I have a reason to be up right now? No, okay, continue sleeping.
PIERCINGS, TATTOOS, or SCARS?:A few scars on my legs, but nothing major (and they will probably eventually go away)
INTERESTING STORIES THAT ACCOMPANY SCARS:Not really. It just often takes a few years for stupid scratches like shaving my legs to go away.
SUMMER OR WINTER?Considering I moved to Atlanta in part because the weather was nicer, I feel obligated to say summer. I prefer the change of seasons though.
GOLD OR SILVER?Silver
PICK A SONG THAT DESCRIBES YOU:I don't know... pick a random Michelle Branch/The Wreckers or Ingrid Michaelson song.
HAVE YOU GIVEN A “SWIRLY”?no
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN GIVEN A “SWIRLY”?no
...MEMORY?Man, I can't pick just one. I went to Montreal last summer and I often have pleasant flashbacks to it (at random times).
...PERFUME?Hana More (or maybe that's spelled wrong, I don't know) or Clinique Happy Heart. I don't wear much though.
...MOVIE(S)?Love Actually, Pirates of the Caribbean, Run Lola Run
...QUOTE FROM A MOVIE?“Why would God make us all so different if He wanted us to be the same?" ~Saved
...QUOTE?I hate to cop out, but I can't just pick one, it truly depends on my mood. Maybe pick a random Lifehouse lyric.
...DEODORANT?Ban fresh scent or something like that
...SOUND(S)?A good singer. Or the flute.
...DRINK?Water (can I get anymore boring?)Possibly chocolate milk, but only in the right mood
...SONG OF THE MOMENT?Ooh, that's tough. At this very moment, I would have to say "Winter Song" by Sara Barielles and Ingrid Michaelson, but "On Fire" by Switchfoot, and "Storm" by Lifehouse are up there. Also "Hooked on a Feeling" performed by the University of Wisconsin Madhatters is one of my favorite songs of all time
IF YOU COULD MAKE OUT WITH ANYONE IN THE WORLD WHO WOULD IT BE?Yeah, I'm not going to tell you.
LAST NOVEL YOU READ:This is horribly embarassing, but I think it's been about a year since I finished a book. But I don't remember what it was, I just remember I got it from the library.
IF ONE SINGER/SONGWRITER/ARTIST HAD TO WRITE THE SOUNDTRACK TO YOUR LIFE, WHO WOULD YOU WANT TO DO IT AND WHY?Ingrid Michaelson, she always seems to know what I'm feeling. And then she makes it happy.Or possibly John Mayer since he has an amazing way of phrasing even the simplest things
DO YOU TEXT & DRIVE?No. I don't text much, and I drive even less.
DO YOU HAVE A LAVA LAMP?No
CAN YOU TOUCH YOUR NOSE WITH YOUR TONGUE?No
DID YOU JUST TRY TO TOUCH YOUR NOSE WITH YOUR TONGUE?No. It's been a few weeks of reading these questions, but I didn't try the first time either.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN CONVICTED OF A CRIME?Nope
HAVE YOU EVER COMMITTED A CRIME THAT YOU WEREN’T CONVICTED OF?Unless you count slight speeding, no.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN SKINNY DIPPING?No
WHAT'S ON YOUR SCREENSAVER?Word of the day
IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL?If it's exactly half, it's half. But usually it leans a little more to being more full or more empty, and then I would say half full or half empty, respectively.If you are asking about optimism or pessimism, I guess I'm a pessimist who tries to fake optimism, but often fails.
WHICH THE OFFICE CHARACTER ARE YOU MOST LIKE AND WHY?Maybe Holly? I'm pretty goofy, but unlike Michael, I have at least some self awareness of when I'm doing something that might have some negative consequences or annoy people (though I often don't realize until after the fact). I also have the bubbliness of Kelly (but no celebrity gossip), and the level-headedness of Toby (and I would probably cry if Daryl got the last Princess Unicorn doll too).
Recipe of the week:
Rock Candy Recipe
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
4 cups sugar
1 cup water
Clean glass jar
String, cut into 6-inch lengths
Preparation:In a medium saucepan, heat 2 cups of the sugar and the water. Do not boil! Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Gradually add a few drops of the food coloring of your choice and the additional sugar, stirring continuously until all the sugar is dissolved. Pour the solution into a clean glass jar and tie the pieces of string to the pencil and suspend them across the mouth of the jar so that the ends hang into the sugar water. Crystals suitable to eat will form in an hour and continue for several days to a week. Pieces can be broken off and eaten after the first hour. (But, try to hold out for big crystals!) Although you may see quick results in small measure, the larger rock candy crystals you're accustomed to seeing in the candy store will take some time to form.
