It’s my birthday! Also, I reached 400 followers a few days ago! ALSO, FANTASTIC BEASTS CAME OUT TODAY AND I GET TO SEE IT IN LESS THAN 12 HOURS. Also, I was tagged by Heather @ The Sassy Geek in the Get to Know Me Tag, which she did at 400 followers, and which I am now doing at 400 followers! What a wonderful world it is!

Hair Color: Light brown

Eye Color: Blue
Best Feature: Legs 😉
Braces: When I was a freshman in high school

Real Holiday: I’m guessing this is “holiday” as in vacation. I went to Disneyland when I was 2, does that count as “real”?
Best Friend: Bridget, we seriously were connected at the hip.
Award: I don’t remember my first award cause it was probably some lame kindergarten thing they give everyone at some point to make kids feel good about themselves. I did win the city-wide lip-sync contest 3 years in a row as a kid way before lip-sync battles became cool. (Eat your heart out, Jimmy Fallon.)
Sport: Never did sports. Dancer.
Concert: The Beach Boys
Film: One does not simply pick a favorite film. My top films usually have one or more of the following: 1. singing and dancing 2. fantasy/sci-fi/adventure elements. For the sake of answering the question (cause I hate when people don’t answer the question!), I’ll say Beauty and the Beast. I actually just blogged about how that movie was the inspiration for my internet identity.
TV Show: One does not simply pick a favorite TV show. Top ones include Sherlock, How I Met Your Mother, Arrested Development, Firefly, and at the moment, Poldark.
Color: One does not simply – jk, it’s blue.
Song: Ok, seriously, one does not simply pick a favorite song. Some include “Mr. Blue Sky” by ELO, “Scenes from an Italian Restaurant” by Billy Joel, basically the entire “Rumors” album by Fleetwood Mac (do I sound like a 40-year-old woman yet?), “Roll Away Your Stone” by Mumford & Sons, “Furr” by Blitzen Trapper…so many more….
Restaurant: Place called Thyme Square in Quincy, IL

Single or Taken: Single
Thinking About: Eating
Watching: My computer screen?
Wearing: Jeans and a tee-shirt that says”I only listen to wizard rock” (which is actually the shirt in my profile pic!). Gotta love casual Fridays at the library.

Do You Believe In
Love At First Sight: No (attraction at first sight, yes; love, no)
Soul Mates: As in the one perfect person? Well sure, there’s probably one person who has the maximum compatibility with you, but the odds of you meeting are slim.
Heaven: Some sort of something
Kissing On The First Date: If both parties are down, yes!
Yourself: Depends on the day
Ta-da! That’s all folks; have a magical day! And THANKS for following!
