Humor me!

Stacey at Design Addict Mom tagged me in an award (ohhh forever ago...no really) with some questions to answer. (Thanks for thinking of me!). I just adore her - her blog is beautiful, her heart is beautiful and her son is beautiful. She's just one of those people whose souls radiates through her writing and the inspiring pictures that she posts!

1. Why do you blog?
This blog started because I wanted a way to remember everything that I came across that I loved - and to share it! I still look through the archives and love everything. Plus, how easy will my christmas list be to make? ;)  However, it's also since morphed in to me just enjoying being a part of this little community. I'm in awe at some of the amazing girls I've met along the way. I was away for last week and came back so excited to see everything I've missed!

2. What are your 3 best memories?Spending my summers as a teenager with my great-grandparents in Kentucky, me and Brandi making each other laugh so hard during classes in grad school that we would be shaking behind our computers trying not to make a sound or a scene!, a w/e Mark and I spent in Galena with his motorcycle, bed and breakfasts and some wineries =)

3. Name 4 of the best fiction books you've read.
Middlesex
Prep
Call Me By Your Name
Watership Down (I just remember loving this as a teen)

4. What are the 5 best movies ever made?
I'm so not a movie buff...I'm too in to books, but here are some I like!
Man on Wire
Where the Wild Things Are
Office Space =)
Ok, this isn't fun, I like most movies!

5. Name 5 things you can't live without. 
Books.
Soul mate friends.
Computer.
My down comforter.
Hair Straightener....don't judge me. 

6. If you could change your name, what would it be?
I always wish my name was Claire. 

7. Tell us a unique and interesting fact about yourself?
Besides the fact that I think this is the most difficult kind of question in the universe? One of my favorite things to do is to open the dishwasher after it's done running and stick my face in the hot air that comes out. Does that count? Maybe I fail at this question!

8. If you could have a freaky friday experience, who would you change places with?
Beyonce, totally.

9. What is the best thing about being a woman?
Feeling sexy and beautiful!

Where the Wild Things Are was sooooo awesome! My boyfriend refuses to watch it on the grounds that it's not a "good movie." Dumb.

Bella *Bellgetsreal said...

I love the hot air from the dishwasher haha... It like getting alittle steam facial each day.

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Love it! Yay for Stacey & your answers :)

A said...

i love reading these :}

MarchMusings said...

Fun questions and answers. I loved Watership Down too but I couldn't watch the whole movie-I was sobbing too much!

Jessica said...

I've always wanted to spend a day as Beyonce, so I could be "crazy in love" with Jay-Z.

Katie said...

Loved reading about you :) The hot air from the dishwasher is a mini-facial. I like it too haha.

Josie said...

Congrats on your award, dear. And it's okay; I can't live without my straightener either!

Awww I always love reading about fellow bloggers, congrats on your award!

Nikki said...

Beyonce!? Ahahaha! Jay-Z scares the crap out of me so I don't know if I could handle it.

I do the same thing as the dishwasher steam with boiling water when I'm straining pasta or something. Doesn't make me crazy at all ;)

Style, She Wrote said...

Very fun and revealing interview. Love it!

Molly said...

You do NOT fail at the "unique" question... that dishwasher tidbit is classic.

Bron @ Baby Space said...

I love Design Addict Mom (and was lucky enough to get this award too - will have to get onto it like you).
Great answers! Can I start calling you Claire? ;P

this is me. said...

office space is hilarious!

Ashley said...

OFFICE SPACE ALL THE WAY!!! That is SO on my top 5 list also :)

Stacey said...

Gosh, i'm blushing here. That's some deep stuff you wrote about me, especially the part where my soul radiating thru my writing!:-). Thank you. I loved reading your answers and i know it was a pain to answer those questions and 10 at that. I think awards shouldn't have all these questions attached to them. I also think Claire suits you well too... xx

Lisa Griffin said...

Jen said...

Congrats on your award!

I have a cousin named Claire, but I've never thought her name fit her. You two should switch. :)

Also, I love that Stacey at Design Addict Mom -she's awesome!

Jess said...

Oh my gosh Watership Down! I loved that book so much when I was like 12 or something. Whenever I see rabbits it totally makes me think of that story.

SMASH said...

In total agreement with soulmate friends, I have no idea what I'd do without them!

Gina said...

bed & breakfasts are my favorite, & i think claire is a beautiful name.

Way too funny girl. And there's no such thing as failing at a question...haha...wish I had a dishwashwer and could do the above mentioned! haha!

Catita said...

Ok Claire! I totally forgot about office space! what a laugh! Remember watching that movie after having my first internship and realizing how much office work sucks! And my too, can't live without my straightener although I am here without it but then again where am I? In the middle of nowhere so how cares!

Signe said...

Hihi, why Claire? I like Krystal!

Buckeroomama said...

LOL at your #8!! I would still sometimes do that with a rice cooker when the rice is just cooked! =)

Diana Mieczan said...

Ohh yes...sexy and beautiful:)...I couldnt live without books and my notebook as well:)
Kisses,sweetie
Its so cold here today...

andrea said...

yay, i love learning more stuff about you! and you are totally not alone with the hair straightener thing... though i've been too lazy lately and haven't used it in a while. and i looove "middlesex." definitely one of my favorite books too! and i see you're reading "water for elephants." it's really good! oh, and that book you were telling me about "one day" is being made into a movie and i just saw a few days ago that anne hathaway is starring in it and apparently cut her hair into a pixie cut for the role! the book is at the library so i'll have to read it before the movie comes out!

Lenore @ Lather. Write. Repeat. said...

Beyonce does appear to have a pretty fab life!!

XO

Faiza said...

i think your name is beautiful! reminds me of the shimmer on top of the water at lake louise in banff!

Emily Jane said...

You and my CAT both like to stick your heads in the dishwasher steam, lol!!

And don't worry, I could never go without a hair straightener either :)

taryn said...

Jayne said...

Such great answers! I loved Watership Down when I was younger! I still remember the rabbit named Hazel. =) And Man on Wire - so good!

Emily, Ruby Slipper Traveller said...

Ooh, I love Watership Down. Once I took a pottery class and refused to make bowls etc. I just made little ceramic rabbits every day, and my grandfather made my sisters and I a sandbox so we could make warrens for them!

La Boheme said...

Thanks for sharing more about you Krystal! Beyonce exchange? Totally!!! xoxo

Mia Delessi said...

I can't live without my computer too ;)

Stephany said...

My only problem with the hot air that comes out of the dishwasher is that my glasses fog up! (I guess I could take them off?!) But yes, I love that, too. Hehe.

Punctuation Mark said...

i can't live without my computer, blackberry, and tea... need it anywhere i go!

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

great post, krystal. i especially agree that the 'unique & interesting fact' was the hardest to answer (and here i thought it was cuz i lead a rather boring existence. :P)

always nice to learn more about bloggy buddies. :)

Marcie said...

I just LOVE your reason for blogging! It is like a virtual diary isn't it? I love going back and re-reading my posts and realizing why I love them.

Great learning more about you.
