Days 10-16

Catching up:

Day 10: Talk about your pets, or the pets you would like to have.
My parents wouldn't let me have a pet for a very long time, with the exception of one very awesome goldfish I won at a school fair. I named him Spencer and I cried when he died a year later. There was an elaborate funeral at my toilet.

When I was 17, I was given the most amazing bunny in the entire world. I named him Bobby because he moved his head like the crazy detective Vincent D'Onofrio played on L&O: Criminal Intent. Bobby passed away a little over a year ago and I still cry about it (read as: "as I am typing this"). Every time I go to my parents house, I still expect him to be there - I go to shut the door quickly so he doesn't go out the front and I look around when I put my feet down as not to step on him. I cried so much when he died. Especially since my job and the driving distance between SD and my parents house prevented me from being there when he was ill and passed. I'll never forgive San Diego for that. I really hope it didn't hurt to much when he went and that he knew I loved him so much.

I also had the great fortune to have Sir be a part of my life. Sir is a clinically insane min-pin/something cuddle dog.
He is incredibly adorable and I miss hanging out with him. He and I shared a whole lot of time together, him being a dog and me being unemployed. I will never forget when Kate and Courtney brought home this scraggly looking dog in Kate's shoulder bag. I believe my first words about him were "that is a dog!" I miss having him around and it was a treat and a half to visit Kate and Riley and see him again this fall. (wtf is that pose in the picture...)

I now live with my roommate's dog Bella. She is very well trained but not my cup of tea. I have discovered I am definitely a small animal type of person, but it is very nice to have a dog that knows your the honk your car makes when you set the alarm and waits for you at the door to say OMG OMG YOU ARE HOME OMG OKAY DONE.

Day 11: Your top three favorite bands.
I liked Heather's idea of letting the internet tell me - it said Motion City Soundtrack, Butch Walker and The Avett Brothers.

MCS seems to be a relic of my middle college years. I think Ryan Adams/Elliot Smith/Jeff Buckley/the Decemberists/Ponderosa/The Mountain Goats get played way more.

These are the consistent elements of my musical library. I try to listen to new stuff all the time. And hip hop plays a big part in my musical life. But I can say with certainty that Butch and the Avett Bros are favorites.

Day 12: Your thoughts or opinions on Harry Potter.
I haven't read the books and I remember thinking when they came out that they were too young for me. I can say with certainty that I have seen the first, sixth and seventh (pt 1) movies. Based on this I think Ron is the best.

Day 13: Your thoughts or opinions on Mean Girls.
I know I watched it, but beyond that I don't really recall much of anything about the movie. I know Tina Fey wrote it. These are the entirety of my thoughts on the subject.

Day 14: Do you have siblings?

Day 15: Tell us your favorite junk food.
Soda isn't a food, but if it was I would pick soda. However, since it is excluded I will have to go with something else. I am not sure this counts as junk food but I love meat, cheese and crackers. I could eat trays full.

Day 16: Your favorite Disney Princess movie.
I have always loved The Little Mermaid. I also very much love Disney's Alice in Wonderland... but she isn't a princess.

Day 9

Favorite meme at the moment.

This is so hard. I love everything about internet memes.

I have always had a soft spot for: Technologically Impaired Duck, Advice Dog and Courage Wolf

but my favorite recently has been Fuck Yeah! Ryan Gosling "Hey Girl"

and shit got META.

Day 8: A Day Late

Are you a fitness guru or a couch potato? Talk about your exercise habits.

I am mostly a couch potato. I used to be extra athletic but it all ended with college. I have started doing "Fitness Tuesday" so that I can be less of a fatty mc fat fat. I go to the gym when I am mad, which is often but I do about enough there to maintain my plumpness.

I wonder if I could join a water polo team which is basically for fat asses that are extra competitive?

Day 7

How you came across tumblr and how you life has changed since joining.

well... this is blogger. I joined in Jan 2008 after a long stint with xanga.

I abandoned this blog for a long while mostly because I rarely feel like I have anything of note to say. Though in real life, I suspect it is because I have been immersing myself in work and getting to LA when I can.

The internet is too permanent for what I am actually thinking - it has always been like that so in that regard nothing has changed about my life.

I've moved to a new city and got a job. I feel like I don't fit here so in that regard everything has changed. I miss Los Angeles a lot.

Day 6

Your favorite season and why.

I like fall and winter the best. Half because I have a very intense love of cardigans/sweaters and halloween and half because I hate being hot and seasons that necessitate clothing that shows my skin.

Day 5: Right On Time

Tell us about your three favorite colors.

orange, purple and red

if glitter were a color this would be a different story.

Day 4: 1 Day Late

Write about your closest friend(s).

There are some people that are there for you when you are at your weakest. No questions asked.

Heather and Courtney are those people for me and I love them infinitely for it.

Thank you.

Day 3: Two Days Late

Your favorite television program.

My favorite television show of all time is The West Wing. I have watched the series countless times and can quote the majority of it.

One of my favorite episodes is: Inauguration: Part 2 - Over There
In that episode, there is a scene where Josh goes to get Donna to come to the inauguration balls after he realizes she fell on the sword for her boyfriend and they have this beautiful moment of understanding that they can trust each other completely. It is really great.

It is a really intelligent show and I am now a card carrying member of the cult of Sorkin.

lol, fan art.

My favorite show that is currently airing is Sons of Anarchy. It is exciting to watch and very complex. It has been a little cheesy in the last few episodes but I am excited to see what they do with the Maureen/John Teller letters. I think it could further the complications of being a modern day outlaw and the divergence from the ideals of the post-vietnam club. It is like the MC is in it's angry adolescence.

And Jax is attractive.

Day 2

Talk about your piercings or tattoos, if you have any.

Things I have pierced:
earlobes. 3 holes in each ear
tongue. 1 stud

I got my tongue done first and my ears after. I went to Hollywood to get info and talk to the piercer about getting my tongue done then I impulse just did it. I threw up the next day which was a horrible experience because my tongue was so swollen. I also will always think of how pretty the lights at the Pantages looked when I was in my post piercing adrenaline high haze when I go down that street.

I really like the captive bead ring I have through the top two holes in my ear. I got it done during Musink when Courtney got her Avett Bros bird on her forearm. We saw Atreyu play that night and left the dog home alone while we were gone all day.

Sir freaking out after his long day.

Day 1

Your middle name, and how you feel about it.

My middle name is Ashley. I strikes me as very Southern Belle-ish (or the dude's name in Gone With the Wind).

I think it goes well with all of me.

My mommy has a shirt with this logo.

Holy Long Time, Batman

It has been about 1 year since I posted in this shit. I am going to start again because I want to do this:

which I saw on Heather's blog which she got from Iliana's tumblr.
