dustdust, coughcough...nice to see you again, lj.  oh and i completely forgot how to format.  how nice.


How do you want to be remembered after you die?
i suppose, for being nice? i'm pretty nice, i guess, right? most of the time?  



Do you like to read?
yes, definitely.

What kind of books do you like to read?
mostly
fiction...i've become addicted to 20th century American short stories (Carver and  Hemmingway in particular).  if the high-school-me heard about this, she would punch me in the face.

What country or countries would you like to visit?
India and Germany (again, but this time, go to where Adam grew up).

What is your name?
Amanda Rae

What does your name mean?
"worthy of love"...at least that's what all the bookmarks at hallmark say.

yellow, i think.

a little over 6 months.

Have you ever slept in a bunk bed?
yep. camp, friends' houses, etc.

If you were kicked out of your current residence whom would you call?
oh wow, that would be horrible.  i guess i'd call my mom or Janna.

Honestly, if you could go back and change something in the past 5 months would you?
the past 5 months have been pretty good to me.  i don't know that i would.

Do you think money buys happiness?
maybe not entirely, but it eases the process.

Has anyone told you they would never leave and left?
i'm sure...maybe i was just assuming they wouldn't leave.

Is there someone you don't ever want to be out of your life?
most definitely.  a few people actually.

Would you say geography or history was more appealing to you in school?
History.  i don't think i've ever taken a geography class ever.  it was optional my freshman year of highschool.

What is the oldest movie you've ever watched?
one of the Film 2700 movies...probably "Trip to the Moon" or "Metropolis" or something like that.

Have your parents influenced the music you listen to at all?
a lot, yeah.  i don't listen to it frequently, but when i hear it, it hits way harder if i grew up with it or i know my parents love it.

What do you plan to do this year for Halloween, if anything?
perform in a play in the afternoon, put on some make-up/clothes (dunno what) and probably get drunk.

Are there any shows that you've been hooked on since the beginning?
I usually come into things at least a year or two late, but i'm right on time with Boardwalk Empire. finally, i can say i was hooked from the beginning! :)

Do you watch Law & Order? If so, which one is your favorite?
meh.

Do you feel like smoking weed is starting to become more of a trend?
no, it's pretty much the same as it ever was.

When is the last time you went to church? If ever?
Probably for someone's confirmation or Easter.

What day do you get paid on? If you don't have a job what do you do for money?
every friday morning.

Have you ever found a bug in your food? If so, what did you do?
ahhh yes.  once.  at Subway in newcastle, there was a large, long-legged insect Jurassic-Park-amber-style fossilized in my teriyaki chicken glaze.  friggin gross.  i spit it out, outside, and ate lunch later.

If you are in a relationship do you listen to the same music as your significant other? If you're single do you have the same taste in music as your friends?
we listen to a LOT of the same music, especially current indie music, but a lot of the stuff we grew up with and still have a connection with is totally different.  and he's not so much into the musicals.  haha.

Would you ever want to have a career working with wild animals?
probably not.  allergies.

Do you have a Tumblr? If so, what do you use it for?
i don't...i'm not really sure what it's for.  lameballs.

Are there any upcoming events you're excited for?
the show opens this week (yay!) and then...on with fall and the holidays! :) 

When was the last time you walked somewhere over a mile away?
wow, i don't know.  maybe in korea.

Do you ever shop online? If so, what are some of your favourite online stores?
i'd almost always rather shop online than in person...just because there's more selection.  in the middle of stalking some Old Navy boots as we speak.

Who, in your opinion, is the best looking male celebrity? What about female?
James Franco...or Michael C. Hall...or Armie Hammer. I can't decide on a favorite.  oh and female, hands down...Christina Hendricks.


and the other meme, also stolen from tekkah.

My best trip ever...
does coming home count?  haha...well, definitely my most meaningful and nostalgic trip was to England for study abroad.  definitely second semester stands out in my mind the most.  *tear*.

My worst trip ever...
oh wow, probably Destin when i was 17.

Most important thing I ever lost on a trip...
my friggin prescription sunglasses at Mudfest in 2009.  i can't think of anything else.  did i lose my keys somewhere in college?  i lose everything...

Most important thing I ever forgot to take on a trip...
this is pretty embarassing, but up until a couple years ago i had a terrible habit of forgetting underwear.  always had to go buy some on the way.

Thing I miss most when I'm away...
if it's far enough away, whatever kind of food i can't get where i am. 

Thing I miss least when I'm away...
washing dishes or taking the trash out.  general cleaning up after myself.

India

What's your first travel memory?
flying to Florida all the time to see Dad.

Name one place that you traveled to as a kid and returned to as an adult.
Ft. Lauderdale.

Was it weird?
yeah, only because i didn't get to see the places really that i saw when i was a kid and Dad wasn't there.

How do you sleep on airplanes: booze, drugs or au natural?
usually some kind of drug.  nothing crazy...tylonol PM or benadryl usually do the trick.  booze aren't bad either.

Name one thing you think every traveler should see before they die.
The Mediterranian Coast.

Where have you been that you would not recommend to others?
i don't know, there's something everywhere for everyone i guess.  i can't think of a place that didn't have at least one good thing to experience.

Name one non-travel thing you learned on a trip.
even 19th century school children liked to deface historical artifacts (see: Coronation throne in Westminster Abbey). 

Do you play any games when you travel, like counting convertibles or mullets?
Adam and i played 20(+) questions for like 4 hours on the way home from St. Louis in March.

What's an awesome idea for a theme park that no one has thought up?
i don't know, maybe this exists, but i'd be totally down for a park that is completely and accurately made up like a location in history (like Victorian somewhereorother) and you get to go in, get clothes, and be a part of the world as it might have existed.  maybe even stay the night or something.  i would eat that shit UP. 

Name the coolest animal you've seen in the wild and tell why you loved it.
uh, yeah, i'm with Teija on this one.  who's been in the wild lately?  I saw some 'wild' pigeons at Willies the other day that were desperately trying to eat anything that wasn't a cigarette butt.  i like the way they walk.

If you could go to Bora Bora with anyone, who would it be?
mmduhAdam.

What's the weirdest thing you've eaten on your travels?
oh boy.  gotta go asia on this one.  probably Tako Yaki.  octopus/sauce filled doughnuts in Japan.  really, really good though.

Yellowstone or Yosemite?
yikes i don't know enough about things.

What country do you think has the best traditional fashion?
indiaaaaa. lucky.

Name one place in the USA you've never been to but want to see.
definitely San Fransisco.  and Washington DC.  and Seattle.  frak.

Road trips: Love or hate?
love, defintely with others.  not by myself.

Do you or have you ever lived abroad?
yep.  England and Korea.

Do you sleep in when traveling, or get up at the crack of dawn?
depends on where.  if i'm on a beach or something, i'll sleep in because duh.  if it's in a city or place with tons of sights/museums/etc, i'll get up early and get out and do stuff.

Name three things you hate about being away from home.
not having  all my clothes to choose from (weird, that just popped into my head), using a different shower, not having my bed..

Name three things you love about travel.
FOOD. art. photographs.
