Magic 8 Ball, Elana Style

Okay, so today I'm going to open up the blog. Ask me anything. About myself. About life, the universe, college football, whatever. As the saying goes in my family, if I don't know, I can find out in three days or less. *wink*

To get the (Magic 8) ball rolling, I'm going to tell you a couple of things about me you may or may not know. Maybe you're violently opposed to one of these and that will spark a question.

Music I listen to a lot. Thanks, Pandora.

  • Taylor Swift - "Should've Said No" and "You Belong With Me"
  • Jason Mraz - "I'm Yours"
  • Matt Nathanson - "Come On, Get Higher"
  • Kelly Clarkson - "I Do Not Hook Up"
  • Adam Lambert - "Mad World"
  • Ne Yo - "Mad"
  • Jesse McCartney - well anything by JM. I mean, the station is named after him, so I think it's safe to say I like him. A lot.

Random Ish You Might Find Amusing:

  • I eat those French fried onion things like potato chips. Garnish? I think not. More like meal. Yum.
  • I wish Novak Djokovic would've beaten Roger Federer in the US Open on Sunday. Mostly because I like yelling, "Come on, Joker!" at the TV and one night of that was not enough.
  • I don't like mushrooms in any shape, form or variety. Fungus? Um, no.
  • I absolutely cannot stand how rain feels on my skin. I hate being outside in the bad weather. My son thinks I have a phobia of water. Yeah, my list of phobias is long, but it doesn't include water. We got into a big discussion about exactly why I don't like the rain to touch my skin. It ended with me saying, "It has nothing to do with water. There's no rational explanation. Drop it!" Then I realized that I am not a rational person. Son: 1. Me: 0, and possibly insane.

So...anything else you're dying to know? And not just about me. About anything. I have a Magic 8 Ball standing by.

OMG, I've figured out your secret identity . . . you're Elphaba. It was the water phobia that gave it away! Seriously. OMG, your makeup job is absolutely fantastic. The only time the green shows through is when you get really jealous. : )

Sorry, it's Friday, I'm in a mood, and you gave me the perfect set up . . . not to mention I was thinking about Wicked this morning since a friend of mine is going tonight.


Marybeth Poppins said...

You mentioned nothing about cheese or potatoes here....I find that disappointing...

I totally think you should name all your phobias in a random blog post with explanations behind each fear. That would entertain me :D

Um a question....

Crap I suck with questions!

Oh oh I have a good one.

Does it upset you when people type in all CAPS?

(don't ask...I ask the questions here!)

Lisa said...

Who is your favorite superhero?

TereLiz said...

My husband is the same way about rain. Funny. Well, it's not that funny since it rains all the time here.

Did you ever make one of those awful mistakes (when you were a teen, possibly) to alter your appearance? Hair dye horror, piercings gone awry. what have you?

Aubrie said...

Here's a fun question:

Do you believe in ghosts, aliens, elves, or bigfoot?

Diana Paz said...

Nice, I like your taste in music.

Here's a random question that only applies if you've ever seen Ferris Bueller's Day Off... Who do you most relate to and why: the sister, the friend, the girlfriend or Ferris?

Have a great weekend :)

Novice Writer Anonymous said...

Thanks, Scott, now I'll have Wicked songs in my head all day! LOL

Not a bad thing necessarily.

Original Star Wars or prequel trilogy?

Bruschetta or salsa?

Chocolate or vanilla?

Ina said...

With Jason Mraz and Matt Nathanson on your list, you might like my husband's music :)

Oh, questions!

Harry Potter or Twilight?

Times New Roman or Courier?

Outlining or writing it out?

L. T. Host said...

While you've got your 8 ball out I'm tempted to ask, "Will any of the agents I queried respond positively?"

Don't answer that. :)

Instead I shall ask, what is your favorite kind of cake or pie, or both?

ali said...

Oh Elana. Elana, Elana, Elana.

No rain? Seriously? Missing out on one of THE. GREATEST. things in the world. Except only warm rain, please.

Question: (I've got so many, I can hardly think of what to ask! During crit group, I entertain myself by designing questions I'll never ask. Now that I have the chance, I'm having stage fright. Yikes!)

So, Depeche Mode or Thomson Twins?

Which came first, the chicken, or the egg?

Why did you decide to start dying your hair black and impersonate Adam Lambert? (ha! JK - I knew he copied YOUR look.)

Jenn Wilks said...

Times New Roman or Courier? Is that a real question? ;o) But, this is Elana's Q & A, so I'll try to hold back my opinions . . . :-P

What time do you generally get out of your pajamas on Monday? Or should I say do you get out of your pajamas on Mondays?

At your house, is Lucky Charms "part of this complete breakfast," or is it just the whole breakfast like at my house?

Inquiring minds want to know . . . . :o)

Jenn Johansson said...

I love the feel of rain on my face, but we have much in common in the music arena. :)

Lisa and Laura said...

Seth or Liam?

Diana Paz said...

Thank you so much for that blog correction. yipes

Natalie Murphy said...

"Fungus? Um, no."
LMAO!! I never thought of it that way before!! Darn, I wish I could have used that as a child...

L.T. Elliot said...

Okay, cause I'm kind of new to your blog, I'd like to know what genre and age range you typically write for. I'd also like to know mroe about you in general. What's your favorite types of foods? Books? Movies?

Terresa said...

Ok, do you have a tattoo? (I'm guessing yes...and I'll tell you a little secret: I have one, it's a red rose on my lower back.)

Katie said...

A water phobia book would be cool! And I just have to say that I ADORE Mad World!!

I can't think of a question. If you didn't write, what would you wanna do? Anything.

I think I'd love being an architect.

Jaime Theler said...

I'm going to start needing folders to organize all my Pandora stations soon.

Question: Can you sing the Big Mac song without a second thought even though you haven't heard it in years?

"Two all-beef patties..."

Go ahead. You finish it.;)

Nisa said...

Who in the world is Jesse McCartney?

I'm so with you on mushrooms. Gross! Love the rain though... Granted, you might after living in Egypt for awhile. ;)
