Hillary tagged me and I love a good meme.
1. What is my current health related goal?
I’d really like to feel less creaky and old, be able to get up off the floor more easily, and get my back sorted out. I think stretching and strengthening my muscles is the best way to put that, but man, I hate yoga, so I’m looking for something else to do.
2. What is my biggest irrational fear?
I watch a lot of horror movies and generally whoever the bad guy in the last horror movie I’ve seen becomes my irrational fear, so right now it’s the Babadook. But overall I think seeing a face staring back at me through a dark window is basically my biggest.
3. Do I enjoy wrapping presents?
I love the idea of wrapping presents, but once I start doing it, I get all mad at myself for not being better at the corners. Why are the corners so hard?
4. What is my favorite cross-training activity?
What does this mean? I feel like this meme is for runners so they mean some kind of non-running exercise, right? And when I first read it I thought they meant cross-fit and I was all NOPE. I guess I’d say I really enjoy kick-boxing. It’s so fun and such a great workout.
5. If you came to visit me, what would we do?
I started to panic the instant I read this. I always have SUCH a hard time planning stuff for visitors. I always assume they’re going to be bored and hate everything I pick. I think the big thing about Southern California is a. the beach and b. Disneyland. So if you like the beach, we’re going there (even in winter it’s fun!) and if you like Disneyland we’re going there. We can even do both. Not in the same day though. If you don’t like either of those things we’re going on a restaurant tour of the city. There are many. And there will be cocktails.
6. I have two weeks off work and two round trip tickets to anywhere. Where would I go and who would I take with me?
DUBLIN. Seth is going with me.
7. What’s the most embarrassing thing to happen to me during a run or a race?
I had to think back really hard to remember embarrassing things that have happened to me, and most of them happened while I was training for the marathon. The worst was when I fell in a giant puddle of mud and it looked like I shit myself.
8. Three best days of my life. Or at least the top three that come to mind.
I think it would be easy to say the day Moses and Manny were born, but Moses birth was so traumatic, so I’ll say the day we learned we were going to be induced was really exciting and the day Manny was born was pretty great too. And the day we found out our IVF with Moses had worked. Oh, and one more, the day I met Seth. Still.
9. Okay, so I HAVE to eat a fast food meal. Which restaurant do I choose and what do I order?
This meme doesn’t know me at all. HAVE to eat fast food, like that would be some sort of hardship. Snerk. Del Taco, hands down, and I’d have 2 small green bean and cheese burritos, a chicken soft taco and a Diet Coke.
10. Have I ever met a celebrity?
Living in LA does have its celebrity moments. I’ve worked with Tori Spelling, I met Johnny Depp at the SAG Awards and I told him I liked his shoes and he said “thank you,” also at the SAG awards I told Allison Janney and Tommy Schlamme that I loved them and they were very sweet and gracious, Isaiah Washington (at the height of the controversy) was super nice and way shorter than I expected, Judd Nelson who wore a giant trench coat inside and talked a lot about China, and Le@ Thompson and her husband are good friends with my husband so I’ve had dinner at their house a couple of times.
11. Share a picture of myself in non-workout clothes.
12. If I could choose to have a “do over” and switch careers, what would I choose and why?
I have said this so many times, lawyer. I think I’d be really good at it. I even thought I’d try to go to law school, but I started having school anxiety dreams and decided that I’m happy doing what I’m doing. Next life me can do that.
13. If I won and Olympic gold medal how would I react?
Great big gulping sobs, I’m sure. I cry so ugly.
14. What do I want for Christmas?
Next year? Who even knows. I guess I can keep wishing for a small piece of land somewhere that we can put a tiny house on and escape the LA bullshit every now and then.
15. What skill do I lack?
What’s the opposite of procrastination? That. I lack that.
I’m going to tag Holly, Jules (do tumblr people do memes?), and Carletta.
