In Which I Answer All Your Deepest Questions

Well, I opened the blog for questions a week or so ago. I know you've been on the edges of your seats for the answers. *snarf* So here's some answers for you.

The marvelouso Marybeth asks: Does it upset you when people type in all CAPS?
Magic 8 Ball Elana (M8BE): I'm infuriated! SO INFURIATED!! (ha ha ha!)

The Lovely Lisa asks: Who is your favorite superhero?
M8BE: Wolverine, all the way. Have you seen those claws. Holy yum. And the sideburns aren't bad either. *Shaky sigh*

The Totally Tubular TereLiz asks: 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?
M8BE: Dude, no. I was a total straight arrow. Goodie two-shoes. Band geek. Rule-follower. Home on time type of girl. It's only now that I'm an adult that I can't go out in public unless my hair is not it's natural color. It's black now, and I swear one summer when I get really brave I'm going to do pink on my spikes in the back. I just need some Brave pills or something.

The Awesome Aubrey asks: Do you believe in ghosts, aliens, elves, or bigfoot?
M8BE: No, no, no, and no. Okay, ghosts yes. But only in novels. I am writing a book about ghosts.

The Daring Diana asks: 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?
M8BE: Who hasn't seen Ferris Bueller's Day Off? I have that freaking movie memorized. Favorite line: "Never had a lesson." ROTFL! Ahem. Back to the question. Um, this is a really hard one. Probably the sister. Cuz she never gets a break and Ferris always does. She always gets in trouble and he never does. It's the whole injustice thing.

The Naughty NWA (who I'm met last week! Anonymous? I think not.) asks: Original Star Wars or prequel trilogy?
M8BE: Oh, the prequel, baby. Mostly because I enjoy Hayden Christensen (as Anakin Skywalker, the teen years) so much. So sue me. BTW, my DH would d-i-e if he knew I liked the prequels more than the originals. Mums the word, 'kay?

Bruschetta or salsa?
M8BE: If I knew what bruschetta was, maybe I'd choose that. So I better go with salsa.

Chocolate or vanilla?
M8BE: Both. Twist cone, baby.

The Incredible Ina asks: Harry Potter or Twilight?
M8BE: This isn't a real question, is it? Harry Potter, all the way.

Times New Roman or Courier?
M8BE: TNR, hands down.

Outlining or writing it out?
M8BE: Writing it out, with lots of brainstorming sessions, crying to friends and runaway plots, er, trains.

The Lucid L.T. Host asks: what is your favorite kind of cake or pie, or both?
M8BE: Well, I'm a cake girl by nature, mostly because I don't like hot fruit. But really, my favorite desert is chocolate cream pie. Yes, I make it myself. I am domestic in spurts.

The Amazing Ali asks: So, Depeche Mode or Thomson Twins?
M8BE: Dude, Depeche Mode. Thomson Twins? Puh-lease.

Which came first, the chicken, or the egg?
M8BE: The egg. Starts with an E. *wink*

Why did you decide to start dying your hair black and impersonate Adam Lambert? (ha! JK - I knew he copied YOUR look.)
M8BE: Yeah, well. I did take his picture to my stylist. But I've wanted my hair like that for a while. I took a picture of a woman at Gardner Village who had the hairstyle I wanted. Yes, a complete stranger. But it was AL who put me over the top and gave me the guts to actually let my stylist cut and dye and dye and cut.

That's it for today!! I'll have some more answers tomorrow. Are you surprised by any of this, really? I am practically an open book.

Unknown said...

I love these kinds of posts!

Aubrie said...

Thanks for answering my question about ghosts, aliens, elves, and bigfoot. Now I can rest assured that they aren't out there to get me!

I like Hayden Christensen as well. (All the teenage angst!!)

Jessica Nelson said...

That was fun to learn more about you! I like TNR too, never have seen Ferris Bueller and .... well, I've never had short, dyed hair, but I totally think you should pink the tips! FuN!!

Stephanie McGee said...

Great questions and great answers!

Wendy Paine Miller said...

You must be introduced to bruschetta!

Two words: Nine times!

~ Wendy

Windy said...

I'm with you on the Star Wars prequels. Hayden Christensen... YUM!

Great answers!

Scott said...

Prequel? Seriously? Must post on your wall so your husband finally knows the your dirty little secret!

Dpeche Mode? Yes!

Chocolate/Vanilla - Yes.

TNR - totally!

Taking picture of complete stranger's hair style? Uh, way braver then me, though I'm just dying to take my camera to Walmart and start snapping pictures of people so I can post on!!!

Thanks for the deep insight into your world.


Michelle D. Argyle said...

I love that you love Depeche Mode! You rock. It was great learning all this about you!

L. T. Host said...

Hey! I love chocolate cream pie too!!! Though, truth be told, my favorite is cheesecake. Mmmm...

At any rate, thanks for the glimpse into your psyche. Yes, that sounded creepy. I need more cheesecake.

ali cross said...

Fun stuff Elana! Some of it WAS surprising. Like the Star Wars thing? Seriously? And I totally didn't get what you meant by the EGG coming first because it starts with E *wink.* Cuz, if that was supposed to be an alphabet thing, would the Chicken come first cuz it starts with C? Yeah, didn't get that one ;) ROFL

Tere Kirkland said...

LOL, brave pills. Maybe they'll start selling tequila in pill form.

Pink spikes, all the way. Hey, Halloween is coming, you can always blame say you had no idea the pink dye was permanent. Learn from my mistakes, kids. ;)

L.T. Elliot said...

This was SUPER fun to learn about you! I loved that you took a pic of a haircut you liked and took it to your stylist. Who is your stylist because I saw your hair at book academy and LOVED it!

Kathryn Hupp-Harris said...

Heh heh.

This is fun.

In high school, we always called Depeche Mode "Depressed Mode."

BTW: You need to try bruschetta. You'd love it.

Lisa Aldin said...

Thanks for answering my question! Wolverine rocks.

Elizabeth Bradley said...

Incredibly entertaining. "Domestic in Spurts" could be a title for a story, or a book. I like it.

Rebecca Knight said...

While I, like Scott, am horrified that you prefer the prequels, I'm so glad you chose Harry Potter! :D

Also, TNR all the way, girlfriend! Awesome list ;).

Pamela said...

So cool to see people actually ask questions and get answers!!

We're writing a novel on ghosts too! It's so much fun.

Have a great day!

lisa and laura said...

Awesome list! We're all about TNR and twist cones too.

Ryan S. Kinsgrove said...

I think I missed the original post last week:(

Glad you picked Harry Potter. Mildly horrified about the Star Wars thing, though the 12 min lightsaber fight at the end of three saved the whole thing for me. Bruschetta is one of the very best things on the face of this planet. It is your mission to go to Olive Garden and try it right now. Who cares if their not open at this time of night. DO IT ANYWAY. Lol.

But beyond all that, since I did miss last weeks post about this fun day since I was sick I'm going to feel special and ask my question now.

Stephen King or Dean Koontz, and which is your favorite book by your pick.

Ryan S. Kinsgrove said...

P.S. I'm on eastern seaboard, and forgot that your pacific time zone. Its like 12:30 over here right now:)
I'm not as think as you crazy I am:)

word ver: rogiry-sounds like a really really messed up type of drug induced orgy.

Carrie Harris said...

Yeah, Hayden IS yummy. He's almost enough to make up for Jar-Jar.

Unknown said...

Awesome! That was so much fun to read! Great idea. :) (I'm totally with you on the prequels and the twisty ice cream!)
