1. Cherry coke zero
2. Coffee Misto-it's basically coffee with like 1/3-1/2 steamed milk. I get it nonfat with 3 splendas. High maintenance? Moi?
3. I am fairly bouyant and not afraid to go into deep water. However, I'm not very good at moving through it quickly if need be. So, sort of?
4. Not usually, but I did get sent home in the 3rd grade for playing Prince's Darling Nikki on the playground. I didn't even know what it was about then. :)
5. Favorite standup comedian? Patton Oswalt Comedianne? Kathy Griffin
6. Are giraffes real or no? Is this a trick question?
7. What are your thoughts on lolcat? LOVE the pictures, but the comments make my eyes bleed. Just because the cats can't spell doesn't mean the commenters have to write like morons.
8. Do you text message? If so how often and to whom? Yes, mostly to about 3-4 friends. My husband is technologically challenged.
9. Do you wear a watch? Nope.

pockets for cookies? oh boy! I love this dress & all the ways you've worn it! I have a similar one I thrifted that is also from the Gap-- makes me want to pull it out & find some fun combination for it!!

1. neither-- I'm against dark liquid soda- is that weird?

3. yes, but not that well
4. I used to get in trouble for talking and cussing like a sailor :)
5. Dane Cook
6. they are!!! and I've fed them before!!
7. ?
8. no. I don't even have that option and if I did it would take me too long to do it.
9. no, but i really should :)

Kelly said...

"(and has pockets to put cookies in)"

Oh Hillary, you are the greatest.

1. Pepsi or Coke. Coke!

2. If you drink coffee how do you like it? When I drank it every day, I just used sugar. Now that I only drink it a few times a year, I almost always use cream too. I don't know why.

3. Do you know how to swim? Yes, I took swimming lessons every year until I was about 12. I hated it but my parents made me go.

4. Ever get in trouble at school? Not really. I had detention twice in my life and it was for stupid things like unpaid library fines or something.

5. Favorite standup comedian? Comedianne? Hmmm I actually don't really know. I don't watch a lot of standup.

6. Are giraffes real or no? Real

7. What are your thoughts on lolcat? Usually cute and funny

8. Do you text message? If so how often and to whom? Yes I do, mostly with Erik just because I talk to him more than anyone else anyway. I only send a couple a day maybe, with little messages like "please get milk while you're at the store" or "I'll be home late" - most conversations bigger than that can get accomplished faster with a phone call, I think.

9. Do you wear a watch? Nope. I like how they look, but since I type on a computer all day at work I usually don't like things on my wrists.

david said...

i thought we were clear about no more cookies in pockets...

1. Pepsi or Coke. (Don't say rootbeer if you don't like either leave 1. blank)
Pepsi. Coke tastes dry to me.

2. If you drink coffee how do you like it?
Black with sugar.

3. Do you know how to swim?
I say I do. Hillary says I do not.
I do have the merit badge to proove it.

4. Ever get in trouble at school?
Sortof. At the time it seemed like the end of the world but in the grand scheme of things I rarely got in trouble.

5. Favorite standup comedian? Comedianne? ha
Ooh, that's tough. George Carlin maybe.

6. Are giraffes real or no?
I have a book that says they are. It also says they come from a foreign planet.

7. What are your thoughts on lolcat?
Fundamentally I think it's great but I also think it's poorly used a lot. Not every cat speaks/spells so poorly - and as a result there are situations where it loses credibility.

8. Do you text message? If so how often and to whom?
Yes, mostly to Hillary.

9. Do you wear a watch?
I go in suprts for months/years at a time with/without.

LPT said...

9. Do you wear a watch? Never!

laniza said...

Love today's outfit! My second favorite way you've worn this dress would be with the green sandals. Onto the quiz!!

1. Pepsi or Coke.
Pepsi all day! In particular, Cherry Vanilla Pepsi!

2. If you drink coffee how do you like it?
Iced in the summer, extra cream, extra sugar, french vanilla or caramal syrup (Dunkin' Donuts for life!).

3. Do you know how to swim?
Yes! Granted, I don't go swimming too often anymore but this New England heatwave might change my mind!!

4. Ever get in trouble at school?
Yes, I remember one instance in particular with a girl I highly disliked. I 'accidentally' knocked her out of her chair and she broke her elbow. I was in second grade at the time so the principal made me apologize in front of the upper classes. I never did anything like that again!

5. Favorite standup comedian? Comedianne? It's a tie between James Gaffigan and Will Ferrell.

6. Are giraffes real or no?
Yes they are real. I feel bad for them in this type of heat!

7. What are your thoughts on lolcat?
lolcats is awesome!

8. Do you text message? If so how often and to whom?
Seeing that I catch my students texting when they're supposed to be learning, damn it, I rarely do it. You know, do as I do, not as I say.

9. Do you wear a watch?
Yes, and actually I need to replace the battery as soon as my paycheck gets here.

paisleyapron said...

Coming out of the woodwork for your fabulous quiz.
1. Pepsi or Coke. Coke.
2. If you drink coffee how do you like it? Half n half with a Splenda
3. Do you know how to swim? My husband doesn't think so but I can tread water for 15 minutes and make it across the pool. I just don't like getting my hair wet and wearing goggles.
4. Ever get in trouble at school? No, but we did cut down the little tree in front of the school the night before we graduated. It was the #1 item on the Scavenger Hunt list. I don't think anyone ever told who did it.
5. Favorite standup comedian? Bill Cosby Comedienne? ha
6. Are giraffes real or no? Heck yeah. "Little" ones were always being born at the zoo across from my parent's old house--6 ft tall ones.
7. What are your thoughts on lolcat? Huh? I am so old school it is occasionally embarrassing. I still use a typewriter.
8. Do you text message? If so how often and to whom? Yes, but only to two people who won't communicate in a more personal manner.
9. Do you wear a watch? Yes, cheapo one from Target... but it does have the date and Indiglo...love glow in the dark.

Sigh.. I think that was therapeutic. Love your blog.

paisleyapron said...

7. What are your thoughts on lolcat? Just figured out what you were talking about. Very entertaining.

Cara said...

1. Pepsi or Coke. Coke. I think my fiance would kick me out of the apartment if I said Pepsi... of course, I would do the same to him, so it does work out in the end.
2. If you drink coffee how do you like it? I can't drink coffee. The few times that I do have coffee a year, it's usually a French Vanilla cappucinno from Tim Horton's (I despise their normal coffee, unlike most of my fellow canadians) or a white chocolate mocha from Starbucks
3. Do you know how to swim? I do! I haven't swam in a long time though... however, our apartment complex has a pool, so I'm hoping to jump into it this weekend!
4. Ever get in trouble at school? Once, we came in late for recess. I cried as the teacher made us sit out in the hall. I still think it's a weird punishment... missing more class for being late for class.
5. Favorite standup comedian? Comedianne? I can't say I've really paid that much attention to stand up comedy.
6. Are giraffes real or no? Of course giraffes are real. So is the Loch Ness Monster. What isn't real is Big Foot.
7. What are your thoughts on lolcat? It's really good to pick you up on days when you're really sad.
8. Do you text message? If so how often and to whom? Continuously with my fiance, occasionally with friends, and to my parents or sister whenever I want them to call me (I can only play the poor student card for one more year!)
9. Do you wear a watch? I wish I could! My skin is too sensitive, and you can't find any good quality leather watches that have the leather behind the watch face.

And I love the dress... not only because it reminds me of Alice in WOnderland (I haven't yet seen the Tim Burton film), but also because you want to put cookies in the pockets. The other day I was wearing a dress with pockets, only they weren't the "cookie holding type... more the frog holding type". People thought I was crazy.

Cara said...

1. Pepsi or Coke. Coke - it's a staple in our house!
2. If you drink coffee how do you like it? Full of sugar. But I rarely drink it.
3. Do you know how to swim Yup - can't wait to jump into the pool this weekend!
4. Ever get in trouble at school? Once - I usually was thought of as the teacher's pet, so I'd start all kinds of trouble, and never get caught.
5. Favorite standup comedian? Comedianne? Don't really follow comedians
6. Are giraffes real or no? Realer than Big Foot, but not as real as unicorns.
7. What are your thoughts on lolcat? It's cute... in small doses
8. Do you text message? If so how often and to whom? Continuously with my fiance, occasionally with friends
9. Do you wear a watch? I wish I could! My skin is too sensitive, and it's difficult to find watches that have a leather strap that goes in behind the watch face.

Love the dress! And the description of the pockets! I told some friends the other day my dress had pockets that "weren't the cookie kind, more the frog kind".
