20 Questions

It's a meme! My brother-in-law did this one, and I hadn't blogged in AGES so yeah, I did this, with Russell and Emily (my friend Emily, not my sister Emily) who are sitting in my living room with me. We're playing catch with a scarf stuffed into a glove. And they humoured me. So here ya go.

1. She is sitting in front of the TV. What is on the screen?

Emily: "I'm gonna go with Phantom of the Opera"
Russell: "That president show that I can't remember...what's it called, oh yeah, The West Wing?"
(Both good answers - but Russell's right, I've been watching Season One of The West Wing lately.)

2. You’re out to eat; what kind of dressing does she get on her salad?

Emily: "Depends on what kind of salad she's getting."
Russell: "I have no idea."
(Yeah, I often get the house salad with whatever dressing it comes with. For green salad, I'll usually get ranch.)

3. What’s one food she doesn’t like?

Emily: "Calamari"
Russell: "Squid." (I went "ugh" when he said this - so true!)

4. You go out to eat and have a drink. What does she order?

Emily: "Martini" (cosmo or girly-type mixed one, she qualified -yup!)
Russell: "White wine" (yup.)

5. Where did she go to high school?

Emily: "The Christian school." (yup!)
Russell: "I didn't know you then!"

6. What size shoe does she wear?

Emily: "A wonderful and stylish sized shoe?"
Russell: "'s or women's...both?" (10 men's, 12 women's.)

7. If she was to collect anything, what would it be?

Emily: "Either friends or horses."
Russell: "Collect horses...that sounds expensive. Umm...gloves? Movies? Febreeze? Teddybears?" (He's looking around my shelves haha!)

8. What is her favourite type of sandwich?

Emiy: "Panini from Safeway." (turkey and havarti...mmm) When I said it was from Earl's, she got it right - the chicken and baked brie ciabatta.
Russell: "..."

9. What would this person eat every day if she could?
Emily: Risotto
Russell: Ice cream
(Comfort food anyone? heh.)

10. What is her favourite cereal?

Emily: Cheerios! (She said this very cheerfully.)

11. What would she never wear?

Emily: "A muumuu."
Russell: "A tuxedo"
(Haha yeah.)

14. Who is her best friend?

Emily: "Julio Iglesias." (She might have been attacked by a fit of the giggles) "I'd like to think I'm a pretty good friend?" (Tis true. Tis her!)
Russell: "Your mom" (He said this in the joke voice, but yeah, Mum is also definitely one of my best friends!)

15. What is something you do that she wishes you wouldn’t do?

Emily: "Like, shirking on comments" (as in demurring compliments - drives me nuts! haha!)
Russell: "You probably wish I didn't say nothing so much." (Sometimes words have to be pried out of him with a crowbar!)

Added: I asked, what do *I* do that you wish I wouldn't?

Emily: "I wish you weren't sad and that you had sunny things to talk about."

16. What is her heritage?

Russell: "Are you English, by chance?"
(Both correct, and said with accents haha!)

17. You bake her a cake for her birthday; what kind of cake?

Emily: "Probably a black forest cheesecake" (whoa. awesome!)
Russell: "*I* bake *you* a cake? That's a scary thought. Probably a pre-made mix, and I'd get my mom to help. Chocolate?"

18. Did she play sports in high school?

Russell: "You played volleyball, I think."
Emily: "I'm gonna agree with Russell."

(In later elementary school, yes. By the time I hit high school I'd already been convinced that I wasn't the right "type" for any of that.)

19. What could she spend hours doing?

Emily: "Riding horses, taking pictures, eating good food and singing." (I think I'd be really full haha!)

(I was really surprised that neither of them said reading, but these are all good!)

20. What is one unique talent she has?

Emily: "You have the biggest and most loving heart. It's cheesy but it's true." (Not really a talent, but I'll take it heh.)
Russell: "Songwriting." True enough :)
