Here we go again! I think I have hit a bit of a writing wall, maybe it’s the depression of seeing multiple crappy apartments every week, but I am hoping to snap out of it soon! Long weekend coming up, it’s Canada Day y’all!!
1. What was/is your favorite live action (meaning not animated) kids movie?
Ugh, why does it have to stipulate non-animated?!? I could pick a million of those!! Does Harry Potter count? If not, Elf! Is there sugar in maple syrup??
2. What is a bad habit you have? Are you working on breaking it?
Facebook. I am trying to wean myself off it, but it’s just stupidly addictive. It’s not even like anything exciting is happening on there, but I just can’t help myself from creeping through friends pictures etc. I no longer allow myself to check it on the weekends when I am at the cottage, one baby step at a time. The first step is admitting you have a problem.
3. Describe your father in 3 words.
Quiet. Loving. Dependable.
4. Which character in the Breakfast Club were you most like in the ’80s?
Well, in the 80’s I was a kid, so, while I have seen the movie many times, I would have to say I would be Claire Standish, because I was certainly never a basket case. I may be some days now, but growing up, not so much.
5. Name 5 songs you know ALL the lyrics to.
Just 5? I know all the lyrics to the entire ‘Tragically Hip’ catalogue, and about 300 country songs, so right off the top of my head:
1- Honky tonk Badonkadonk – Trace Adkins
2 – New Orleans is Sinking – The Tragically Hip
3 – Gunpowder & Lead – Miranda Lambert
4 – Livin’ on a Prayer – Bon Jovi
5 – Long Time Running – The Tragically Hip (all time most favourite song, I want it to be our first dance at our wedding, but Scott doesn’t like my band 😦 )
6. Do you make pancakes from scratch or a box mix?
I like to go all domestic and make them from scratch, with sour cream, so you know they are uber good for you! but really, we eat them MAYBE twice a year, so why not go all out. I do put in sliced strawberries and peaches though, so that redeems them a little bit!
7. What was your worst job ever? Why?
I worked at a deli for about 2 weeks, I handled raw chicken for 8 hours a shift and could not handle the sight of it any longer. It was a little of a blessing in disguise when I got “laid off”, because 2 weeks later I got a part-time job at the movie theatres. And that my friends, it the BEST job you can ever have in highschool. Seriously, I loved it, I got to work with my friends and see all the movies for free, most times before they even opened.
8. What was your favorite class in high school?
Spare? Seriously, I think it would be a toss-up between art and creative writing. Shocking that I now have a photography company I am trying to get off the ground, and have this here little blog.
9. Favorite summer guilty pleasure?
Rose, or wine in general. On the deck/dock at the cottage, starting from lunch on. My FSIL (future sister-in-law) and I always enjoy a few wine spritzers during a lazy afternoon while reading. Oh, and naps.
10. Please share your best money-saving tip!
I am not the right person to ask for money-saving tips. BUT, I am learning to go to the grocery store with a list, and only buy what’s on the list. And coupons, coupons are my new BFFL.
