10 Random Questions with Tiffany Brown

Tiffany Brown is not only one of the most fun people I know but also a great writer and a wealth of pop culture knowledge. You can find her wonderful thoughts and articles on her blog, AngelizedFirst.com and on TVAfterDarkOnline.com. Be sure to follow her on twitter and read her answers to my random questions below!!

Tumblr. Yes or no?

Yes, I have a Tumblr, but I haven’t been posting to it much lately. It’s angelized1st.tumblr.com. When I do post it’s usually pics of my favorite shows. Sometimes I also post quotes and videos, or music. If I’m watching a favorite film, I’ll spam Tumblr with gifs of the movie I’m watching. I also have an Ian Somerhalder Tumblr from years ago at itaintpianolessonshoney.tumblr.com.

The movie you can recite the most lines from?

I’m not sure what movie I can recite the MOST lines from, but anyone who follows my Twitter knows I’m always reciting Buffy, Clueless, Anchorman, and Coming to America.

Favorite musical instrument?

My favorite musical instrument is the violin, because I played violin for 5 years. I still occasionally play, but not consistently to be as good as I was.

Last movie you saw in the theater and did you like it?

The last movie I saw was Iron Man 3. I loved it so much that I went twice over the weekend. Even though I thought the central could have been better, the action sequences and character development made up for it. If you go, I’d recommend seeing it in 3D. Awesome!

Waffles, Pancakes or French Toast?

I’d have to go with French toast. There’s something comforting about French toast.

Ferris wheel, Roller Coaster or Arcade?

Hmm…. My favorite ride is the roller coaster, but going to the arcade is one of my favorite things to do. Not the kiddie arcade, though. I like the nice ones with a full bar, and all of the games. Maybe even a speedway. But if I have to choose, I’ll go with roller coaster. There’s no greater thrill than flying through the air at break neck speed.

Favorite Color?

Red. I’m a summer baby, so I really like bright colors, but red makes me feel alive. It lifts my mood, and can be sexy and dangerous. It’s also a classic color that never goes out of style. As much as I love it, though, I rarely wear it all over. I usually use it as an accent piece.

Best book you’ve ever read?

This changes depending on what I’m currently reading. Pride and Prejudice, The Lovely Bones, The Kite Runner, Hunger GamesGame of Thrones made me throw the book across the room. As did A Storm of Swords…. I’m currently reading The Dune Chronicles, and that’s pretty good. Very deep, and thought provoking. Probably one of the most complicated books I’ve read since 1984. LOL, this is hard…

Do you read fanfic?

I’ve tried, but I find it difficult to read off my computer for long periods of time. I tend to get dry eye, because I forget to blink. Besides, I hate waiting for the authors to finish a story. Besides, some of it is just too bloody awful.

Person you’d most like to have dinner with tonight?

LOL, well if anyone follows my Twitter they know it’d most likely be Matt Davis. I just find him interesting. I think it would be fun to pick his brains on various topics. I also would love to have dinner with the President, so I could talk to him about the state of the education system in our country. Hmm… Also the cast and crew of Scandal. They seem like a fun bunch. Maybe I could get some season 3 scoop from Shonda.

10 Random Questions with Kate Linnea Welsh

Kate is not just a great friend and a great writer; she is also a very busy woman about town (town being the most important parts of the internet). Kate writes and edits for my favorite TVD site, Vampire Diaries.net, she also writes for TheTelevixen.com (my home away from home), blogs on her own and is launching her own new site: ReadtheScreen.com. Despite all of the awesome work that she does, she took the time to answer more than ten of my random questions. Be sure to follow her on twitter!

Favorite Color

Blue! And I love that it has shades that evoke so many different moods.

Do you read fanfic?

Occasionally, usually when someone recommends a specific story. I used to read and write fanfic frequently but I just haven’t had time given my other writing commitments of late.

Person you’d most like to have dinner with tonight

My grandmother. She passed away when I was in high school and I’d love to be able to talk to her as an adult.

Last episode of television that made you cry

The Fringe series finale. SO MUCH CRYING.

The drink you order when someone else is buying

Usually Dewar’s and soda, though if the person buying wants to order me nicer Scotch I don’t object.

The name of your secret spy identity

I actually have a secret identity, so . . . I can’t tell you. 🙂

Tumblr. Yes or no?

Yep! My Tumblr name is katelinnea.

Last movie you saw in the theater and did you like it?

Zero Dark Thirty. I liked it a lot.

Favorite musical instrument

To play? Violin. To listen to? Trumpet, though I’d rather listen to a full symphony orchestra or a string quartet than any individual instrument.

The movie you can recite the most lines from

The Sound of Music. I can probably recite at least 90% of it, and that is not a short movie.

Your favorite food to make for yourself

I like cooking for other people! But I guess pasta with homemade marinara sauce.

Best book you’ve ever read

I cannot possibly pick just one, but if you put a gun to my head, Pride & Prejudice.

Favorite smell

Crabtree & Evelyn’s La Source scent.

Waffles, Pancakes or French Toast?

Pancakes, but only if made by me or my mom. Otherwise waffles.

Travel and/or flight ritual?

I always start a new book when I arrive at the airport at the beginning of a trip.

Your favorite thing to do alone

Read.

Cake or Bacon?

I’m a vegetarian, so cake!

Pajamas in public. Yes or no?

NO. We live in a society, people.

10 Random Questions with Melissa Miller

My random questions this week are with my good friend and wonderful writer, Melissa Miller from Small Screen Scoop.com. Melissa has great taste in television (I know that because we like so many of the same shows) and gives good recap. You can read my previous interview with Melissa here. Also, be sure to follow her on twitter after reading her (more than) ten random answers below!

Favorite Color

Emerald green, usually. But I also like purple and grey. Not 50 Shades of it though.

Do you read fanfic?

Not really. But not because I’m not interested in some of it, especially the pieces my friends write or recommend. I just am so overloaded with work, that I barely acknowledge my kids exist sometimes as it is, so I have to give something up. That seems like a good one to drop.

Person you’d most like to have dinner with tonight

My best friends, Nicole and Erin. They actually haven’t met (they are from two different groups of friends, one in NY the other in CA) and I think it would be amazing if I could get them in a room together. Plus I miss them both terribly, so even if it was only 5 minutes and we could just hug for a minute, that would be amazing.

Last episode of television that made you cry

Inevitably the answer to this question is Parenthood, am I right?

The drink you order when someone else is buying

So, the only people that buy me drinks that are not my husband are my friends and I don’t like to make them buy me expensive drinks. Usually it’s red beers at The Peacock (or favorite dive bar) because they only cost $1.25, so we buy rounds for each other and it’s very cheap. We are cheap. Or, maybe, a Two Towns Incider. Wow… that answer is very “I live in Oregon.”

Song you will never get enough of

“Call Me Maybe.” No, wait, that’s not right. “Blackbird” by The Beatles is one of my all-time favorites. At least that is what just popped in my head. Ask me later, and I’ll probably answer another way.

The name of your secret spy identity

I’m mostly Russian, so probably something involving the name Natasha or Irina.

Tumblr. Yes or no?

I’m old and just can’t get into it. I want to… but do I need another time suck? Though I appreciate all of your pretty links on twitter, friends.

Last movie you saw in the theater and did you like it?

Les Miserables, and yes. Duh. TWO FOUR SIX OH ONE!

Favorite musical instrument

Depends on who is playing it. Is it a soulful guy, inevitably in a flannel? Then the guitar. Obviously.

If you were forced to be on a reality show, which would it be?

Ummmmmmmmmmmm……… The only ones I would want to be on I’m not qualified for. Can I judge one? I want to judge Top Chef.

The movie you can recite the most lines from

The list that I could answer this question with is embarrassingly long. I’m not sure I even want to start naming them.

Ferris wheel, Roller Coaster or Arcade?

In this order: Roller coaster, arcade, Ferris Wheel of Death (I don’t like Ferris wheels)

Holiday you’d most like to abolish

Columbus Day

You’re a groupie. Who’s the band?

Band of Ninjas. Because they are my friends and I love them.

Your favorite food to make for yourself

I make a pasta with just some garlic, olive oil, lemon, crushed red pepper and parm. It’s simple but if I need some comfort food, that always does it. Or, you know, cookie dough without any egg so I can just eat it. Because I’m a GIRL.

Best book you’ve ever read

What sort of sick and twisted person are you for asking me such a question, Erin?! HOW. DARE. YOU! Ha. Ummm…. Pride & Prejudice is my completely cliche and girly answer. Mostly because I can’t possibly try to think of a cooler or better answer.

Favorite smell

Anything that smells clean, like things that are labeled as “linen scent.” I love that.

Waffles, Pancakes or French Toast?

French Toast, I guess. But I’d prefer eggs and bacon. Mmmmm. Bacon.

Best GIF you’ve ever seen

The one of Kermit the Frog doing his crazy excited wavy hands thing. Because if I’m ever excited about anything, that is what plays in my head.

Travel and/or flight ritual?

Valium. Just kidding. I don’t really have one except making sure I have gum and something to read that doesn’t suck.

Your favorite thing to do alone

Watch Parenthood. People shouldn’t be in the room when I watch that.

First concert

I’m honestly not sure. I want to say something like The Beach Boys. My dad liked to take us to concerts for his favorite bands.

Cake or Bacon?

Maple bacon cake. So there.

Pajamas in public. Yes or no?

Soooo…. When you get older and have kids, if you wear PJs in public it goes from being “adorably quirky” to “giving up on life.” In other words, no. No PJs in public. MAYBE yoga type pants if I’m traveling all day, but in general, no.
