20 Random Facts About Me Tag

Belle over at In My Life made a fun little "getting to know you” tag that I couldn’t resist snagging. Tags are always fun! And if you don’t follow Belle, you should! She’s such a sweet person and has a delightful blog.

20 Random Facts About Me

1. What are three of your hobbies?
Writing, obviously. Does reading obsessively count? I do it so much I think it qualifies as one of my hobbies at this point. *nods* And playing the piano.

2. What is your favorite season?
Used to it was Spring, but that’s switched over in just the past year or two to either Fall or Winter, I can never decide between the two. Probably Fall, it’s such a fantastic time. I still love Spring though! Honestly, I love all the season, except Summer is sometimes miserable. I hate the heat.

Fall Reading

3. Heels or sneakers?
Er. . .neither? I rarely wear heels but I also almost never have on sneakers. Boots (without the heels usually) is my favorite thing to wear! Flip flops are great. And any cute little flats. But I guess I’m not answering the question. I’ll go with heels, I wear them more than sneakers.

4. Casual or Fancy?
Casual is nice around the house, but I love getting all fancy!

5. What do you prefer, a Birthday party or a girls sleepover party?
Sleepover! I always loooooved sleepovers. They were just the best! Some of my best memories are at sleepover parties.

6. What do you enjoy posting about more?
Writing! I think you’ve all probably gathered that by now though, haven’t you? Although sometimes I just like posting total nonsense about lemons and the like.

7. How old are you?
*hobbles forward on cane* 2,459 years ago, a person was born. Her name: Not Lauri. Ahem. There was a person born 21 years ago though, and I happen to be it. But sometimes I feel 2,000 years old. And then other times 4 years old. Rarely do I actually feel 21. Hee.

Never Grow Up

8. When is your birthday?
Somewhere between January 1st and December 31st. Or is it? *cue Twilight Zone music*

9. Do you like the thrill of a roller coaster?
I’ve actually never been on a roller coaster. I know, shocking. I have a heart condition and doing such a thing might be too strenuous on it, so I just avoid them. But that’s fine, I think I’m too chicken to try them even if I could. I doubt I’d enjoy it.

10. Do you like watching movies in a theater?
YESSSSS!!!! One of my most favorite activities is going to the theater!

Old Theater Chairs

11. What would be your ideal job in the future?
Companion to the Doctor. *nod seriously*

Tenth Doctor

Okay, okay. Full time writer. That would be fabulous.

12. Are you into sports? If so which ones?
Sports? Hahahaha! Everyone that knows me knows to steer clear of that topic while around me. I SO am not into sports. Bleh. Just not my thing. Nothing wrong with sports at all, I just can’t seem to get into that sort of thing.

13. In a football party, which are you, the one that jumps while shouting if your team almost scored? Or the one who isn't that interested in the game, and prefers to eat the snacks while talking to friends?
Thankfully, I’ve never been to a football party. But I think now you can all guess which one I’d be. I should probably mention football is one of my least favorite sports. I can make no sense of that game for some reason. But, yeah, I’d totally be just talking to everyone and eating all the food. : D

I'm That Girl
14. Did you play Playdough as a child?
As a child? I still play with Playdough! That stuff is amazing! Hehehe. Okay, so sadly it has been quite a long time since I’ve played with any, but I still love it. When I was little I used to play with it alllll the time!

15. What are your favorite clothing stores to shop at?
Ross is a fabulous store. Cato is also great. And I’m pretty fond of Belk. But I’m not picky. If it has reasonable prices and nice clothes, I’m happy.

16. Are you a bookworm?
MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! *chokes on evil laughter* Ahem. Why yes, yes I am. *cough*

17. Which do you spend more time on, a book, or the internet?
Sadly, I have to say the internet. I spend far too much time on the interwebz. Farrr too much time. . .

Too Much Internet18. When did you decide to start blogging?
Back in March 2011. I thought it would be a lot of fun to have a blog, as well as keep me doing some writerly things, so I decided, “Why not?” And I’m so glad I did! I’ve made amazing friends here in blogland and it has vastly improved my writing. Not to mention it’s just fun!

19. On your honeymoon which would you rather go to, a rustic lodge in the mountains or a sunny beach house in Florida?
Lodge in the mountains!!! No doubt about it. I looooove the mountains, but I am SO not a beach person. Give me forests and mountains any day over the beach!

20. What are five of your favorite movies?
Oh my. Let’s see if I can do this. . .
1) The Lord of the Rings trilogy (yes, counting them as one. Shhh.)
2) The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (not Desolation of Smaug though, meh.)
3) The Avengers
4) The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
5) The Hunger Games and Catching Fire (I would say The Hunger Games trilogy but, ya know, the Mockingjay movie doesn’t exist yet.)
Eek, that was hard. So many movies I wanted to put. I apparently have a lot of favorite movies.

That was a lot of fun! Thanks, Belle, for putting this together.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!


  1. Yes, I think reading obsessively counts. *winks* And you play the piano, too? That's awesome!

    Bahahaha!! Your answer to #7 made me laugh out loud.

    Great. Now I'm going to have to do this tag. Belle's blog is a lot of fun, and I love tags. Go away, Little Writer, I have time to do tags.

    1. Hahaha! Glad you think so. XD And yes, I do! The piano has always been a HUGE part of my life. I love it! Although shamefully I haven't been playing it much lately. I need to get back into it.

      You should do it! Tags are kind of addicting, aren't they?

  2. Oh my word loved this post!!!!!!!! And when you said travel with the Doctor as a future job?!?!??! WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT!!!!!!!! :D I would go with Ten of course, but I really like eleven, although they are both very different for romance, I would take Ten, but for a best friend, Eleven :) Anyway I absolutely LOVED this post!!!! Of course when I went to bed after making the tag, I thought of so many better questions I could have put in there! :P Thanks for doing this tag!!!


    1. Awww, thanks! Glad you enjoyed it!

      Lol! Literally the first thing that popped in my head was companion to the Doctor, before anything else. It IS my dream job after all. ;) The Tenth Doctor is ABSOLUTELY my favorite!!!!! I love him so much. Eleven is fantastic, but he can't hold a candle to Ten, in my humble opinion.

      I loved the questions you came up with. But you could do another tag like this sometime. :D Or even make it a monthly thing or something. That would be so fun!

      Thank YOU for making this tag. I loved it!

  3. Hilarious! I love ALL of your answers! (#7 was my absolute fav!) These kinds of things are so much fun, I love learning about the personal characters of my blogger friends! Thanks for sharing! Now I must do it. SOON. :]

    1. Hehehe. Thank you! I do too! It's so fun getting to know all your blogger buddies. Yes, do it! :D I love reading these things!

  4. I loved your #7 answer too! :D I've never been on a roller coaster either. o.o AND I'M THE SAME ABOUT SPORTS AND FOOTBALL!! I just... don't get it! *high five for someone else who understands* (But... of course we're always the same on most everything else, so obviously... ;)) AND THAT INTERNET PIC!!! I. DIED. LAUGHING. :DDD Heeheehee. Awesome post! ^_^ *huggles post and Lauri*

    1. *grins* I never can seem to answer a question simply. ;) You've never been on a roller coaster either? Even our lives are the same! YAY FOR NOT LIKING SPORTS. *high-fives back* But I'm not surprised. Hehe. It's so nice to know someone understand though. Where I live everyone is OBSESSED with football, it's bad. And then there's me... So at least someone doesn't get it either!

      Oh my goodness, that internet picture! I just about choked when I found it. Explains my life pretty well. XD

      Thank you! *huggles back* ^__^

  5. Being the doctor's companion is the dream!

  6. You are SO funny! Really enjoyed reading this! :)

    1. Lol! Thank you, sweet girl! Glad you enjoyed it. ^_^
