inner dork: some factoids about me

These questions come by way of the most lovely and fabulous, Bre.
Here are the rules, there is a five question meme going around and I asked her to ask me five questions for today's dorking. I had to answer the questions she asked me and post them.
If you would like me to ask you five questions, send me an email and then post the Q/A on your blog and then pass it on.
So, without further ado:

1. Would you rather be a superhero or a super villain? Why?

A superhero. They get to save the world and usually end up with the guy/girl in the end. Super villains may have more fun, but it's only until the superhero kicks their ass. Thus, the super villain goes away, a.k.a. dies, and the superhero lives on in infamy. I'm an infamy kinda gal.

2. What is the one product you would be lost without?

Hmm, hair gel? Burt's Bees chap-stick? Eyelash curler? Body lotion? Toothpaste? Soap? Bottled water? Birth control? Condoms? KY?...this is a tough one. Although the last three are very important to me as a single gal, without the hair gel, chap-stick, eyelash curler, mascara, body lotion, toothpaste, soap, or fresh water none of those three would matter. I think I will have to say, chap-stick. This could change by the time I'm finished typing. Damn. I forgot about contacts/glasses. Damn. Without either of those I'm done for. Unless as a superhero I would have super vision. Yep. I'm guessing I would. Okay, scratch the glasses...well, not literally, cause them I'm back to the, done for part of this post. Although, I always said if I were to do "Survivor" I would want chap-stick and a toothbrush. If I had a toothbrush I could go over my lips keeping them soft and supple. Toothbrush. Final answer. (maybe)

3. If you could live in a different era, what era would you choose?

This is a tough one, too. I can see reasons why I would be fabulous in so many different eras, but I think I am going to go with the 1920's. Although I would love to live in a different century, I also like clean water and personal hygiene too much to really be devoted to say, 1762 New England, for instance.

Why the 1920's? So much change was happening for women in general with person freedoms and voice in terms of household, education, personal and sexual freedoms, and government; I really think I would have been a pretty forceful and powerful voice during this time. I also think my forceful and powerful voice would have had eggs and various other sundry goods thrown at me, as well as have done some jail time. But it would have been all in the name of empowerment, so it's all good. Did I mention my minor is Women's Studies?

4. What's the best pick-up line you have ever heard?

Ugh. Isn't this an oxymoron? Here's a list of memorable ones: (Not saying they're good, just sayin' they were memorable.)

"That dress is very becoming. Of course if I was on you, I'd be cumming, too." (drink spit out and back turned on the person.)

"Did you wash your pants in Windex, cause I can see myself in them." (eye-roll and are you 19?)

"I like my spaghetti like I like my women, hot, naked, and buttered." (Smile and a laugh)

"I'm no fruity pebble, but I sure could make your bed rock." (Okay, that's pretty cute and clever. He got conversation.)

"The word for today is, legs. Let's go spread the word." (Eye roll and a an attitude.)

"So do I have to spend money buying you drinks all night, or can we stop wasting time and just go get the strawberries and whipped cream, now?" (What do you think?)

....and my all time favorite pick-up line is: "Can I buy you drink?" (Yes, yes you can. Is it going to lead anywhere? Probably not, but by all means, spend endless amounts of cash on me if you feel you must.)

...but truly the best pick-up line ever is simply....."Hello." Hello will get you further with me than any of the others, always. The others may get me to spit out my drink, or laugh, or make my eyes bulge, but "hello" will get you conversation, which is the best pick-up line, always.

5. Would you rather find a sweet, sensitive, stable man or a wild, passionate one to grow old with?
(Sigh) Can I have both? Not two men, but all of these attributes rolled into one man? I like sweet and sensitive and stable, but wild and passionate are fun, too and can keep the embers burning. Yet so can sweet, sensitive, and stable because I won't be worrying about him and what he is doing after-hours. How about a sweet, sensitive, stable man who has a wild and passionate side that only I am privy to and it makes me fall more in love with him each day. Each time he comes up behind me when I am cooking dinner and he catches a glimpse of my neck and the casual need to lay a kiss upon the arch of my skin is just the beginning in the long list of casual and thoughtful gestures he does on any given day.

This leads me to something: I love the simple gestures. Nice grandiose gestures are wonderful, but they are grandiose. I love the simple, unexpected gestures. For example, I'm in the kitchen cooking dinner and my hair is swept up thus exposing my neck. Without cause or reason the man in my life comes up behind me and gently kisses the arch of my neck. It's so sweet and lovely and I think it can speak volumes in terms of the relationship. Or same scenario, but instead of a kiss, grabs me around the waist and gives my body a squeeze against his and I gently lean back into his arms. Or when we are laying on the big, ugly, comfy couch and I don't even realize I have my legs draped across his lap and he is running his fingers up and down my calf. His head is in my lap and I am running my fingers through his hair or vice verse. It's those little everyday things that are effortless and come without thought that I long for, that make a relationship a relationship for me. (Sigh. Ah, memories.)

But I digress. If I could have all of the above with all of those attributes with a man whose interests are wild and varied, yet somehow we still have the important things in common so as to have endless days and nights of conversation and passion, I will be happy to grow old with that person in my life. And if he can also be a dork, then the rest is just gravy. Cause I do love a man who has some dork and some geek in him. I do. I really do.

I liked this. It was an easy way to tell you all some things about me that I would never think of. If you would like to ask me something or if you would like me to ask you five questions email me: partygirl99 at gmail dot com.

I'm glad you liked responding, cause it was very fun to read! My favorite (bad) pick up line always has and always will be "Are you from Tennessee? Cause you're the only Ten I see!!"
