An outfit and a quiz (lets not forget the outfit this time mmmkay?)

April 13th 2010
Hot pink shiny dress that looks like satin but is cotton. Similar dress by her here. Diane von Fürstenberg (IT HAS POCKETS) I got this for a STEAL last summer at Saks. It is also the dress I have on in my "byhillary" blog header and business cards.
used
Boots Clarks 2008 (same as yesterday)
Necklace Frank Gehry Tiffany's gift
Bracelet Tiffany's gift
Earrings "NH Try it and Buy it Expo" gift
Pink cami H&M 2005?
I have a brown cardigan on at work.

For my makeup I put on a ton of brown eyeliner on bottom water line and a lot up under my lashes but not on my top lid. If I put it on my top lid my eyes look a little huckleberry hound.

The expression in this one is hilarious

2. Favorite big word
onomatopoeia

3. Favorite type of cuisine?
i have 3: mexican, italian, asian (chinese, thai, sushi)

4. Butter or margarine?
butter

5. You just won 500 dollar what do you do with it?
put it towards my wedding!

6. Favorite superhero?
thanks to my fiance instilling all of his comic book geekery in me, thi is is too tough to answer! i will say Polaris, since she wears green + thats my favorite color.

6.a. Expansion question. What ability do you wish you had just for giggles.
molecular manipulation. then i could fly or be invisible or anything i wanted. :)

7. Do you write in cursive or print? (is that what its called?)

10. Any interesting scar stories?
i have a tattoo on my right shoulder that covers a scar from when i had a mole cut out. the scar story isnt as interesting as the tattoo part, i guess.
i have an accident-prone friend with lots of scars from really uninteresting events, so she makes up stories about them. so far, she has had people believe that a scar on her leg was from getting caught in a bear trap and being attacked my a shark.

That dress makes me quake with envy. I adore it.

Dave77459 said...

I love that dress, and had forgotten the blond streaks.

1.If you could be anyone for one day who would you be?

I'm not quite sure, but it would be a woman. Knowing how the other half lives would be fascinating.

2. Favorite big word

Schlimbesserung - the incremental improvement that bollocks the whole thing. You know, improve something perfect until it breaks.

3. Favorite type of cuisine?

Chinese, or burgers

4. Butter or margarine?

Butter.

5. You just won 500 dollar what do you do with it?

Bank it. We're presently paying two mortgages and the outlook is scary.

6. Favorite superhero?

Captain America.

6.a. Expansion question. What ability do you wish you had just for giggles.

Flying.

7. Do you write in cursive or print? (is that what its called?)

I write in technical lettering, with a few cursive conjunctions thrown in when I am lazy.

8. Do you own a car? If so what kind?

I own a 2001 Toyota Camry and a 2001 Hondo Civic. I also own a 2006 Yamaha touring motorcycle and a 1989 Suzuki cruising bike.

9. Do you floss?

Yes. Since I got a strongly worded reprimand from the dentist.

10. Any interesting scar stories?

I have a scar on the front of my left shin from when my leg got caught in the rear tire of a bike when my buddy was riding it.

I have a scar on the left calf, from when I backed into a cultivator and cut it an inch deep. I used butterfly bandages so that my mom wouldn't know and take me to the hospital.

I have a scar on my elbow from when my buddy forced me into a curb on a bike and I skidded across the sidewalk. Fun times.

I have a huge scar on my left leg from when I drove my first bike into the wall of parking garage. My skin literally tore apart. It's a grand reminder to me of how fragile life is, and how quickly it can change.

Dave77459 said...

Oops... my first and third scars are from bicycles. My fourth is from a motorcycle.

Beeks said...

Hi! I just recently found your blog via google reader's recommendations and I have to say, it was a good suggestion! Here are my answers to your quiz:

1.If you could be anyone for one day who would you be? I'd like to go back in time and be myself on my wedding day all over again.

2. Favorite big word: Malapropism, because it enables me to use other big words incorrectly and still seem intelligent.

3. Favorite type of cuisine? Thai.

4. Butter or margarine? I prefer butter, but it's more expensive, so I eat a greater quantity of margarine.

5. You just won 500 dollar what do you do with it? Pay down some of my debt, and buy something rad and overpriced at Sephora.

6. Favorite superhero? Tough to say. I think the flying, tights-wearing variety are pretty lame. I guess Ramona Flowers from the Scott Pilgrim series. Not really a "superhero" per se, but she has awesome style, the ability to transcend space and time, and that fight scene with Knives Chau in the library is pretty impressive. Okay, Ramona Flowers is my answer.

6.a. Expansion question. What ability do you wish you had just for giggles. If I could beam myself anywhere in the universe at will, that would be pretty fun. I'd love to travel but am petrified of flying, so such an ability would solve a lot of woes for me, I think.

7. Do you write in cursive or print? (is that what its called?) I fluctuate between the two but I'd rather be typing.

8. Do you own a car? If so what kind? Yes, I've had an Oldsmobile Alero since my second year of college. It needs frequent costly repairs and is probably the least cool car ever made, but it's still good!

9. Do you floss? Sometimes. My husband told me what the true purpose of flossing is (it's not just to clean between your teeth!), and ever since, I've been a little too grossed out not to floss at least once in awhile.

10. Any interesting scar stories? When I was little (too little to really remember this, thankfully), my dad was pushing me on my tricycle when, unbeknownst to him, my toes got somehow caught in the pedal. He kept pushing, which kept the pedals turning, which cut open the big toe of my left foot. The scar it left is shaped almost exactly like the symbol that represents "woman", that cross with a circle on top. I like it.

Fun quiz, but what are your answers??

hillary said...

beeks I don't usually answer until the end of the day. I have done these for years and learned if I post them too soon people either don't post or their answers are influenced.

Kasmira said...

Hooray, the dress looks pink!

Thanks for coming to my rescue this morning. :)

hillary said...

Kasmira
I got a new camera shortly after that because it was ANNOYING THE SNOT OUT OF ME. My mom now uses it and it works fine. **grumble**

I hoped you wouldn't mind but she was just RUDE and it was unnecessary.

a VW Passat wagon. I LOVE it.

9. Do you floss?
Yes. I love flossing, actually.

10. Any interesting scar stories?
Uhm, the most prominent ones on my face (chin and eyebrow) are from when I was four and was standing on an industrial car jack in my grandpas garage and I slipped and fell onto it. I bit through my tongue.



Hillary, I love that dress. In the heade/card, are you wearing the Marc Jacobs red flats that I covet?

Not as much as I should. I have special floss thingies that help me get behind the permanent retainer glued to the backs of my bottom front teeth.

10. Any interesting scar stories?
I have two small parallel scars on my left shoulder from my cat Callie. She was my very first cat ever and I got her for myself for Valentine's Day 2002. She was still just a baby when one day we had a thunderstorm. I was on the couch watching TV and she was on the back of the couch, her favorite perch back then. (She used to get up there and chase her tail until she fell off, then repeat ad nauseum!) Well, the storm got really loud and there was a clap of thunder that made the whole room shake with a very bright, close bolt of lightning. She got really scared and tore off the back of the couch...via my arm. Silly kitten. It hurt like a mofo though.

Jess said...

Oh, and also? This is probably my favorite dress that you wear. I love dresses with pockets, and that color is just great with your skin tone.

hillary said...

No I am not. Funny you should ask that. I am actually wearing marc jacobs sandals.

DAVID faked the shoes. I was a bit annoyed because I wouldn't never wear red shoes with a hot pink dress but he said he liked it better like that.

Clare said...

Always a fave dress.

1.If you could be anyone for one day who would you be?
Joe. I would love to see the world through my boyfriend's eyes. It might be weird, but I kind of think it would reveal tons of stuff about him.

Merengue.

3. Favorite type of cuisine?
Japanese. I could LIVE off sushi.

4. Butter or margarine?
Oh god, butter all the way. Sweet cream butter. Nom nom nom...

Seriously though, go shopping. :)

Batman, cause he's really just a rich nerd.

To fly. Not so much for giggles, but for awesome.

A weird, illegible hybrid that only I can read.

8. Do you own a car? If so what kind?
{see above question about 500 dollars}

No. I HATE it, and am apparently willing to get tons of cavities just so I don't have to do it. It's stupid.

10. Any interesting scar stories?
I have two little scars on my right wrist from where I had pins in my arm when I broke it last year. I kind of hope they never go away 'cause I think they're awesome.

D'Et said...

Oh how I LOVE that dress! Every time I swoon, I swear. Haven't done a quiz in a while. These are fun!

1.If you could be anyone for one day who would you be? Queen Rania of Jordan.

2. Favorite big word? Defenestrate! I giggle.

3. Favorite type of cuisine? Asian (Sushi, best of all.)

4. Butter or margarine? I skip it. I don't really like either enough to deal with the consequences.

5. You just won 500 dollar what do you do with it? Put it in my savings account and pretend I didn't see it!

6. Favorite superhero? Superman.

6.a. Expansion question. What ability do you wish you had just for giggles. As weird as it sounds, Sylar's power from Heroes. To be able to instantly understand, replicate, and manipulate how things work would be RAD. That or telepathy.

7. Do you write in cursive or print? (is that what its called?) Print... ish.

8. Do you own a car? If so what kind? Yep. Audi A6.

9. Do you floss? Yes.

10. Any interesting scar stories? I have a million scars, but none of the stories are very much fun.

Kelly said...

Man I love that dress. I have so many shirt dresses and barely ever wear them because collars bug me. Ugh!

1.If you could be anyone for one day who would you be?
A man. I just think it would be incredibly interesting to actually get in their heads!

2. Favorite big word
disappropriate (as I'm typing this my spell checker thinks it's wrong, but I swear I looked it up to make sure I wasn't just making things up!)

3. Favorite type of cuisine?
Honestly I am such a fan of really plain americana sort of food. I know it's boring but I like really simply stuff - not a lot of spices or anything. Just like a hunk of meant and another hunk of bread and some plain veggies. Erik hates it, he's always trying to get me to be more adventurous!

4. Butter or margarine?
I use margarine but butter tastes better of course. I try to use real butter when I'm baking but it's not a big deal if all I have around is margarine.

5. You just won 500 dollar what do you do with it?
I'd probably let myself blow like $150 of it and put the rest in savings. Or go on a trip.

6. Favorite superhero?
Batman, because he didn't have any super powers. He was just an awesome guy.

6.a. Expansion question. What ability do you wish you had just for giggles.
Flying!

7. Do you write in cursive or print? (is that what its called?)
When I'm writing notes to myself, it's usually in cursive. When I'm writing for other people, I try to print but it usually comes out as a weird hybrid.

8. Do you own a car? If so what kind?
I have a Jetta TDI but not for long. I've loved it, but the transmission is shot for the second time in three years. So I'm sick of dealing with this and I think I'm going to get a Honda Fit.

9. Do you floss?
Yes, grudgingly. Well I don't floss with actual floss but I use these things my dentist turned me on to: http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=210819

10. Any interesting scar stories?
Not really. All my scars are from boring things - tripping on my dog's leash or getting in a fight with my brother.
