Me, Myself & I: October

1. What is your favorite season and why?
I'm just going to go ahead and make up a word.  Let's call it FaRing...or Sprall?  Auting?  Sputumn?  No, that last one sounds gnarly.  I can't decide if I like Fall/Autumn or Spring better.  Spring is great because you have all the new growth and the emergence of happy colors but Fall/Autumn is lovely because of the cooler temperatures and the anticipation of Halloween/Thanksgiving/Christmas.


2. Talk about a moment that changed your life.
When my best friend died.  My best friend was killed in 2005 while driving to work.  She was 22.  I remember waking up early that morning, something I never did - and My Chemical Romance's "Helena" was on the TV.  I remember thinking what a macabre thing it was to wake up to.  I got up, went to work like normal.  I had my phone on silent and didn't feel the bajillion calls that were happening while it was in my pocket.  I finally checked it and saw all the messages.  I had tons from my boyfriend and my other best friend.  I called my boyfriend and he said "Kara was in a wreck" and I said "Oh my god, what hospital is she in, is she okay?" and he said "I'm so sorry...." and I threw my phone across the room and fell to the floor.  I didn't find out until later that the time I woke up early was right around the time she was killed.  I always thought that was such a strange coincidence.  Since that day, I've been a lot more closed off and a lot more guarded.

3. If you could be any Crayola Crayon color, what color would you be?
I've always liked Cerulean.  Funny story - my whole life I pronounced it cru-lean because I didn't bother to really read it.  Sad, I know.  But cer-u-lee-an it is!

4. Describe yourself as a superhero. Name? Sidekick?

Hmmm...I'd definitely want to have a BS radar.  Know when people were lying or being shady.  I'd like to be able to have a power that could benefit the world somehow.  Make people's lives better.

5. If you had all the money in the world, but could only shop at 3 stores, which ones would they be?
Oh geez....I don't shop enough anymore to know but if I had all the money I wanted to shop with...probably somewhere awesome like Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales....scratch that.  I just want the stylists from Gossip Girl to be my stylists.
