Authentic people

I’m Amanda.

I have an affinity for sarcasm, an undenied love for music, and tend to laugh a lot. My friends put up with me. (I don’t know how). Church ladies and colleges love me.
Again, I don’t know how.
I’m fanatically devoted to the people I love – my family and friends. Jesus is amazing.
It’s awesome to meet you.

1} What’s the nerdiest/geekiest/weirdest thing about you? 
I’m an HTML geek. I look like a normal teenager, yes, but my not-so-secret-now love is given to coding and website design. It satisfies the artsy side of me, and I like to convince myself that I’m learning mathematical things while I’m doing it. Surely it’s better than doing real math?

2} If you could live in a fictional universe from any book, movie, or television show, what would it be?
Lord of the Rings. I’m a huge fan.

3} Little or big, practical or frivolous, what is one of your favorite items in your house?
farmgirl-3968.jpgMy Nikon. Does *cough* anything else in the house exist? I hadn’t noticed. 😉

4} Do you like animated movies? If so, what is your favorite?
I’m going to be a killjoy. Because I really don’t like animated movies. However, I watched Tangled last week – that movie is the exception to the rule. It was adorable. Generally though, I prefer to see characters being acted out by real people.
Because I’m weird like that.

5} What is your favorite household chore?
I have a tendency to hate household chores until I do them. This includes dreading doing laundry (I do my own) so much that I have piles and piles of the dirty clothes sitting in my room. Then I take two days and do all of it and wonder why I dreaded it so much. Happens every time.

6} What’s your favorite thing to get at Starbucks (or your favorite coffee shop)?
In the summer, I love the non-coffee frappuccinos. In the winter, because I don’t drink coffee, I generally go for hot chocolate or tea. I must add, however, that Starbucks tea is terrible compared to the real amazingness you can get at a local tea shop. This is a recent revelation. And a good one.

7} What is your favorite pizza topping?
I really prefer white sauce on pizzas, with olives, bacon, and peppers. But if tomato sauce is the only choice then I generally go Hawaiian (ham and pineapple). Yes, I’m odd. No, I’d rather not have regular pepperoni, if you must know. It’s greasy and terrible.

8} Waffles or pancakes?
I really like both, but I’m gonna have to go with pancakes.
Now you’re making me hungry.
Dang it.

9} Do you like to play games? If so, what is your favorite?
I’m big on Scrabble. Liz and I play it online constantly, and I’ll play it in real life with my family in the winter.

10} Have you ever let anyone win a game?
I am the oldest of four. I have three little sisters. Of course I’ve let people win games. Not so much any more though. >:)

11} Have you ever dyed your hair?
Nope. I’m natural. People think I’ve highlighted my hair, but that’s from sunshine and genetics.

12} Do you make your bed every morning?
No. Never.

13} Picasso or Norman Rockwell?
Norman Rockwell, if I have to choose between the two. Generally, I don’t like either of them. I’m an impressionist kind of girl.

14} Do you like carpet, tile, or hardwood floors?
Hardwood. Also, this is an incredibly random question. Just saying.

15} If you could put one thing in a safe under your bed, what would it be?
My camera. 🙂 Can you tell that I love that thing? Far too much?

16} What’s your favorite condiment?
Dijon mustard. I’m generally not a condiment person though.

17} Have you ever thrown up on someone (excluding when you were a child)?
Not in my… memory. Don’t ask my mom. Please.
I was very tempted to delete this question, but I kept it because I’m cool. *wink*

18} What was the last thing that made you laugh?
My mom. I love her. She’s gorgeous and hilarious. She makes me laugh all the time.

19} Think fast…what’s the first song that pops into your head?
Riverside, by Agnes Obel.
