The Totally Awesome Thirty Questions Meme

Okay, you've all seen these things, a list of questions supposedly designed to help you get to know me better. Really, this list is pretty lame. The only things you need to know about me are that I'm totally awesome, totally hot, and I can kick your ass at tennis or trivia any day of the week. Other than that, what's to know? I'm pretty boring.

I once had a 100 Things list up, but I got tired of it and I haven't yet gotten in the mood to revise it. The following thirty questions are a meme that many of the Cotillion babes are answering this week. In our collective wisdom, we have all decided that questions like "what color is your bathroom" and "what fabric detergent do you use" are burning issues that our readers' lives cannot be considered complete without knowing the answers thereto.

So without further ado:

  1. What time did you get up this morning? 5:30 a.m.
  2. Diamonds or pearls? Diamonds, never pearls.
  3. What was the last film you saw at the movie house? United 93
  4. What is your favorite TV show? I never miss American Idol or 24, but the best show on tv is Lost.
  5. What did you have for breakfast? Starbuck's old fashioned donut, and a coffee.
  6. What is your middle name? Grace
  7. What is your favorite cuisine? Spanish
  8. What foods do you dislike? I don't dislike sushi, but I'm afraid to eat anything raw.
  9. What kind of car do you drive? 1994 Mazda MX-6
  10. Favorite Sandwich? Thick slices of mozarella cheese with pesto, romaine lettuce and sun-dried tomato on a sesame seed roll. Try it.
  11. What characteristic do you despise? When someone takes themself too seriously.
  12. Favorite item of clothing? I'd have to say shoes.
  13. If you could go anywhere in the world for a holiday where would you go? I totally want to see Japan.
  14. What color is your bathroom? It is apartment beige.
  15. Favorite brand of clothing? Ann Taylor.
  16. Where would you like to retire? Hungary or Portugal.
  17. Favorite time of the day? Right now, 4:45 p.m. because then it's almost time to go home.
  18. What was your most memorable birthday? When I was in Jamaica. Correction, I don't really remember much about that day.
  19. Where were you born? Copenhagen, Denmark.
  20. Favorite sport to watch? Used to be basketball but the NBA sucks these days, so it's football.
  21. What are you wearing right now? Coincidentally it's shiny black basketball shorts and my "guns+bombs=peace" t-shirt.
  22. What star sign are you? Aries.
  23. What fabric detergent do you use? Tide unscented.
  24. Pepsi or Coke? I drink Coca-Cola, for a strong America.
  25. Are you a morning person or a night owl? Night owl.
  26. What is your shoe size? 8.
  27. Do you have any pets? Sadly, no.
  28. Any new exciting news you’d like to share with your readers? My boyfriend and I are getting an apartment together next semester!
  29. What did you want to be when you were little? Firefighter, if you can believe it.
  30. What are you meant to be doing today? Writing something more creative than this.

Coke contains certain additives that make it easier for the comunists to control our minds...

I'm just saying. :)

you lie. you lie!

Don't take this wrong, Annie, but unless the boyfriend is a classmate, you need to rethink the decision.

Third year law school/bar preparation and non-law student roomies don't mix. Really.

From next year to the date you take the bar exam, you need to eat, breathe and live law. You need to be a law nerd. Or, you risk losing control and having to take it over. A fate worse than death.

I know people who couldn't face it the second time and did something else.

Jody, Coke is American! Pepsi is Fwench! If you drink Pepsi, you help the terrorists!

Annika, you'd better start making plans for a wedding if you're moving in with the boyfriend. It ALWAYS happens. (OK, maybe just with me. Never again!)

you guys have been talking to my mom, right?

Posted by: annika on Jun. 12, 2006

Coke, dammit! All American drink! Pepsi's the communist one!

Hey, wait a minute... Coke's logo is all red. And Pepsi's is red, white, and blue...

DAMMIT, Jody! You, you... aw, crap, you got me all messed up now!!!! Up is down, black is white, night is day... but dammit, I still say Coke is it!

Um, I'm sorry but I don't remember anyone here approving of this young fellow you call a boyfriend....and now you're moving in? You kids never call anymore!

Thirty nine (39%) percent passed the Bar this time, Annie.

Want to knuckle down and get serious, or go back to typing and filing for lawyers? Think about it.
