Keeping Promises: Days 17-30

Day 17: Your thoughts on Ugg boots.
Boots, regardless of brand, are acceptable and can be attractive when they are worn practically and with a coordinating outfit.

Day 18: Do you drink soda more often than milk?
Absolutely, yes. I used to drink Dr. Pepper as if I needed it to live. I have since switched to Diet Coke. I anticipate a soda drinking related disease in my future.

Day 19: The initials of your crush(es).
I can say with confidence that I do not have a crush on anyone at the moment.

Day 20: Do you wear glasses? If so, what are they for?
Yes, they are for seeing. I am near-sighted (myopia).

Day 21: Your favorite subject to study.
Cultural studies.

Day 22: Do you play a sport? Tell us about it. If not, talk about a different
hobby you may have.
I played water polo and was on the swim team in high school. I then became fat and lazy and currently list reading blogs and thinking about doing great things but never doing them as my hobbies. I really miss water polo and am constantly challenged by the fact that I have seriously become so out of shape that I cannot bear to even try to get back in the water. It is a vicious circle that keeps me fat. I need to change.

Day 23: Your opinions on Lady Gaga.

Day 24: Tell us about the last movie you saw in theaters.
I saw TRON: Legacy in 3-d with my coworkers before I left for home and later London. I thought the film was quite entertaining and the lead actor was attractive. I spent a lot of the movie negotiating the fact that I was wearing two pairs of glasses.

Day 25: Tell us about the last book you read (for leisure or for school).
I read Love is a Mixtape a while back and am currently reading The Dharma Bums.

Day 26: Name one place you would love to visit one day.
I'd really like to visit the Survivor Tree in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Ideally this will be one stop on a long cross country road trip with a bitchin soundtrack. Let's do this friends.

Day 27: List your three favorite girls names, three favorite boys names, and your three favorite names for a pet.
I've always fancied the name Aubrey for a girl and haven't really contemplated naming a girl child anything other than that (take notes future husband). For boys I have always liked Aiden (but I think I'd have to marry and Irishman for it to make sense) and Anze (but that is a little out there). I also love the name Corey.
I think pets earn names.

Day 28: Your first celebrity crush.
I am not entirely sure who was first but I did love Leonardo DiCaprio after Titanic came out.

Day 29: Your opinions on the television show Glee
I think there should be a Mike Chang and Brittany S. Pierce spin off called Dance Club.
Game changer right there.

Day 30: Take a picture of yourself right now and post it, or post the most recent picture you can find.
The first is a really great picture of me (thanks Heather) and the second is how I think I look most of the time - big fat cheeks.

For Day 27, I would also like to add that I like the name Luke for boys. I am not, however, particularly interested in the religious nature of this name.
