What is your current favorite song/album?
I'm predictably obsessed with that London Bridges song. I like to think of the chorus as a rhetorical question for the ages: how come indeed, Fergie. As for albums, right now I'm wearing out my copy of More Adventurous by Rilo Kiley.

What song do you currently hate?
Lips of an Angel by Hinder is the worst song I've heard in years. The first couple times that I heard it on the radio, I didn't realize it was new, I thought it was a crap 80s rock ballad by some Bon Jovi cover band.

What's the next album you're going to buy?
Pieces of the People We Love by the Rapture, Oh No by OK Go, Philadelphia Songs by Denison Witmer, Ta-Dah by the Scissors Sisters, and Sam's Town by the Killers. But I'm going to LimeWire them because I'm a bad person.

What's the best advice ever given to you?
Don't steal music. And anything Greg says is good advice.

What are your nicknames?
Bec. No one really calls me Red. Actually, Tim does.

If you were born a member of the opposite sex, what would your name be?
Apparently my name would've been David.

In the situation above, what would you want your name to be?
Hmm, let's see, I've always been a fan of Who Cares, I Ended Up Being a Girl.

If you had a choice, would you drop your last name?
Drop it like it's hot? Or like I'm Cher?

What heritage does your last name imply?
Utter genericness. Vacant smiles and government mind control.

What's your facial structure like?

What do you think of redheads?
Better red than dead, as Cartman said.

Can you touch your nose with your tongue?
No. Can you bite your elbow?

Toy you always wanted but never got as a child?
I wanted the Barbie pool, a sit and spin, and all the Little Golden Books.

Luke Skywalker or Han Solo?
I always liked Luke and hated Han. He was the original Mr. Big.

Top three celebrities you wanna do?
I suddenly have a sneaking suspicion that this survey was written by a 15-year-old. But okay. Jason Varitek, obviously, Indiana Jones, and the guy from Felicity with all the inventions. I stand by my choices.

Who is popular that you hate?
I love philosophical quandaries. What's the meaning of life, and who is popular that you hate? I'm sure the correct answer is some kid at the next lunch table, but I have to go with John Mayer.

What's the last movie you saw that scared you?
The Grudge 2 commercials are not making my life better.

You're sentenced to death and it's the morning of your lethal injection. What will your last meal be?
Really good pizza. Also, what did I do?

What's something that most people do that you've never done?
Drink an entire cup of coffee.

Before you die, where do you want to go?
All over Europe.

What's something you'd really like to do but probably won't ever do?
Land that guy on Felicity with all the inventions.

If you had to marry someone at the age of 12, who would it be?
I'm 12 years old and I have to get married? Fine, Joey McIntyre. I would've died of happiness and promptly dropped out of middle school to tour with him.

What's something most people don't know about you?
In person, I'm actually quite serious. Dead serious.

What's a weapon to suit your personality, habits, and abilities?
All I need is my blade.

What makes an awesome party?
Aaron Carter.

What's your favorite TV show?
I don't know if it's my favorite, but Lost is the one that I have to watch every week. It's becoming a parody of itself, but it's just so suspenseful and entertaining and ridiculous. JACK! WALT! KATE! NO! Oh, but I guess my favorite show is The Office. Will Pam and Big Tuna ever make it work?

What's your favorite quote?
I have a jillion, but my favorite quote lately came from my mom. She heard a story about a friend who is likely cheating on her husband, and she said, "How does she do it? I don't have the time or the underwear for an affair."

What's your material obsession?
My iBook and iPod.

What's the next holiday that you'll celebrate?
Columbus Day, or We're Sorry For Canonizing the Guy Who Killed All the Native Americans Day.

What's something most people would consider an insult but you don't mind having said about/to you?
"Is that your real hair color?" Although it does concern me a little that maybe my hair looks like a bad dye job. That would so be my luck.

What's your favorite thing about where you live?
The seasons (yes, even winter), the wicked nice people, the history, Fenway, the Cape, the endless things to do, and of course the fact that most of my family and friends are close by.

What's your least favorite thing about where you live?
I do mostly like the winter, but I could live without that gray, sludgy stretch of weather from January till April. I wish the streets were numbered and that the T (subway) was everywhere, like in New York. And of course, I'd like to never again have to hear anything about pahking ya cah in Hahvahd yahd.

You suddenly have to flee the country and adopt an alias. What is it?
For about ten years my alias has been Brittany Fairchild. It was established before we knew about Britney Spears, thankyouverymuch.

Pick one state in the U.S. to get rid of permanently.
Florida. But I wouldn't get rid of it permanently, maybe just make them start over and do a better job next time.

Where are you right now?
The Cape.

What did you do last night?
Had dinner at a neat restaurant that used to be a church. It's also a B&B, but I'd be too scared to stay there because I bet it's haunted by angry religious ghosts. I mean, there's a bar where the altar used to be, and the restrooms are marked Adam and Eve. The words "weakened" and "afflicted" were carved into the wall right above my head. Sounds about right. I had the lobster, pinot grigio, and repented for no sins. Oh yeah, and the other thing I did last night was delight in the Yankees blowing their postseason. Whee!

If you had to pick one of these three jobs, would you be a policeman, fireman, or serial killer?
How well does serial killing pay? Probably policewoman. But firemen, oh my. It's like they created this occupation specifically for my enjoyment. And also to put out fires and save families and kittens and whatnot.

Would you be a doctor, surgeon, or solider?

Would you be a banker, lawyer, or writer?

Would you be a pilot, forensic scientist, or ninja?
Ninja! Actually, ninja is my answer to the previous three questions, too.


Miss Fire said...

Amen about getting rid of Florida. A-freakin'-men.

Greg said...

Let me know how that new Scissors Sisters works for you. The bits I heard weren't doing anything for me...

Definitely ninja.

Killer said...

I actually spent a few years as a ninja and it is not all it is cracked up to be. Sure, the wearing black all the time was more flattering for my figure, but I got carpal tunnel from all the throwing stars.

Guinness_Girl said...

Hee! I, too, am obsessed with that London Bridge song. My favorite line is "I'm a lady, but I'm dancin' like a ho."

Anonymous said...

Is it wrong that I would still marry Joey McIntyre????

Stefanie said...

I wanted the Barbie pool and never got it, too. Apparently my mom was worried it would make too big a mess. What did she think we were going to fill it with?? Last time I checked, water was relatively harmless...

Joe said...

The new Killers album is really good.

Red said...

I saw it in your kitchen, actually.

chillier said...

I married Joey McIntyre when I was 10 so you can't have him. Sorry.
