32nd Street Blog Parade!


Click here to grab the 32nd Street Blog Parade banner or to get more information about the blog party.


Hey everyone! I'm SO excited to visit all of you today and throughout the week! Don't forget to link up with your posts, so that I can see you! :)

1. What's your favorite time of the day, and why?


Early morning. There's nothing better than waking up at the break of dawn and watching the colorful sunlight pour in your window. KIDDING!!!! That would probably be my least favorite time of the day. My favorite is from around 7pm to whenever I go to bed. That's the time when I get to sit down and either watch a movie or (if it's Tuesday or Wednesday) American Idol with the family, and just completely chill afterwards with the sibs. SO. AWESOME.

2. If health wasn't an issue, what food could you live off of?


Well, since I said food (and not Starbucks--which would be my obvious answer otherwise), I have to say....Peanut M&M's!

They're pure, beautiful, delicious, amazingness--problem is, I don't eat (or endorse the use of) artificial colors. So, what's there to do? Dream on.

3. If you could have one wish granted (besides wishing for more wishes), what would it be?


I was going to say I'd wish for mad violining skillz, but then I realized that would be really unsatisfying. Who wants success from an artificial talent? No, I'd rather get artificial success from REAL talent. Makes sense, right? So, I would wish to solo for a movie score--like Hilary Hahn in "The Village" or Joshua Bell in "Defiance". That would be like....jaw dropping awesomeness.

4. What's one thing that you get teased about a lot?


My spontaneous intensity. I tend to kind of make up things that I'm really adamant about on the spot. For instance--someone says "I don't think I could live without electricity." So, naturally, I respond "Are you kidding!? I've ALWAYS wanted to live without electricity! Wouldn't it just be romantic?" Uhhhhh....where'd that come from? I would DIE without electricity!!!!!!

5. If you could choose one movie, book, or TV show to spend your life in, which would you pick? What type of character would you be?


It's really really....really...ridiculously hard, because I love SO many. I've finally decided though, it would be Star Trek Voyager, but with Jackie Chan. I would probably be an engineer--actually, B'Elanna (the half Klingon, half human engineer) reminds me of myself quite often. In my spare time, I would spend time in the holodeck--set in a Chinese garden, and Jackie Chan would teach me Kung Fu. Would that not be bliss?


6. If you could have one talent that you don't already have, what would it be?



I would like to be able to make people laugh really easily. See, I think a LOT of stuff is funny. Problem is, the humor gets lost in translation--ya know what I'm saying?

7.If money were no object, where would you go on vacation?


I don't really know. Probably somewhere on the coast of Greece. It's SO gorgeous! But still...I'd probably get bored....so, I guess I'll say Los Angeles, Californ-i-a. :)))

Don't we look happy?


8. If you were an awesome singer, which genre would you sing?


Probably like Norah Jones type stuff. That would be pretty next level.

9. If you could have a $10,000 shopping spree to one store, what would it be?


Amazon.com. Does that count? Well, it should.

10. If you could live in any point in time, when would it be?


The Victorian era...but only if I was rich. That may be lame, but I would totally want to live in a mansion and have butlers and maids and throw balls and stuff. If I wasn't rich, then it would have to be now.

11. If every outfit in your wardrobe had to be one color, what would it be?


PURPLE!

I think most people are going to say black...but I think I'd get sick of black sooner then I'd get sick of purple.

12. If you were one of the seven dwarves, which one would you be?


(Doc, Grumpy, Sneezy, Sleepy, Bashful, Happy, or Dopey)
Probably a cross between Bashful and Grumpy. So, Annoying.

13. What's the last album you listened to?


"Bulletproof Monk" soundtrack, by Eric Serra

14. What's something we'd be surprised to know about you?


I once considered selling my violin to pay for an Xbox 360. Can you believe that?!?! Me neither...I've had some pretty dimwitted moments in my life.

Jackie Chan ends up everywhere in your life! On you iphone, on your computer and even on your blog party! Jonas will teach you kung fu.

This blog party is going to be a blast. It took me forever! But answering the questions was quite fun actually.

Lovin' ya my daughter.

Marijah said...

Oh, Abigail! (: You had me laughing out loud! (Which really isn't a good thing since it's past 1 am and everyone else is asleep, but oh well!)

Especially your answer to number four. Goodness, that is too great! I certainly have that same weird habit...but I don't do it too often! :p

Well, I've gotta get back to my blog party post! (:

Love you,
M

Barbie said...

I've linked up and so excited to go around and meet everyone! Purple is my favorite color too!

Loved your answers and all your pics. I joined in. Thanks for the great blog parade :)
Blessings,
Amy

Näna said...

I can so sympathize about the Peanut M&Ms. We too eat all natural which means no artificial coloring:( I really do like the natural lifestyle so I guess that is a small sacrifice.

Amazon.com! My favorite store! Love it!

Great picture of you guys on vacation. Yes, you all do look very happy.

Pam Ponder said...

Becca said...

Marissa said...

I LOVE peanut M&M's! To bad I NEVER have them... =(
And you make me laugh all the time! hehe.

Pretty much awesome answers. I can't sympathize with wanting to live off of small pieces of candy... (If I were going to live off of something like candy, it would be honking pieces of nutty fudge or something.) : )

Oh, when I read your answer about Voyager+Jackie Chan, my cranium exploded and I spent a full five minutes cleaning it up! (It was that amazing.)

Anyways, thanks for setting this party up! It's been a blast so far.
Love ya, : )
Jared

Hannah said...

Olivia said...

I keep forgetting to tell you that I'm in a play and my character is a spin of on Jackie Chan. :D It was edited a bit to be a female part, but basically I'm a wise old Chinese lady that quotes all these random Chinese proverbs.

You always keep me entertained Abigail! I loved your answers and am enjoying this little blog party. :)

Joyful said...

This is so much fun Abigail.
I have my post up, now to go PARTY!!

Jenny said...

LOL, I could probably eat my weight in peanut m&m's or anything with peanut butter and chocolate :) Loved your answers...

koalainscotland said...

So with you on the purple (it's my favourite colour and already features somewhat extensively in my wardrobe!) and the peanut M&Ms. Or anything chocolatey and peannuty.

As a health scientist, I no way endorse colourings either! grrrrrr

Olive Tree said...

Lovely! I linked. :)

JamericanSpice said...

It was fun to read your answers and you playing violin is way cool. Wish I had the talent.

And I seriously had no idea the dwarves had names. lol

I guess I didn't read the right book on the stories!

Nice to meet you. :)

Rachel M. said...

G-Zell said...

LOL I am rollin..ok aren't peanut m & m's considered in the food pyramid? Cuz I LOVE those darn things.

My favorite part of the day is late at night when everyone is asleep and I can take out a book or watch anything I want! :)

Life Is Crazy Beautiful said...

Hey sweet girl! I have been meaning to join in, but I guess my post/link won't come until tomorrow. I'll be late to the party (maybe that'll be my post title). I've had fun reading some of the partiers posts! <3 u!

Heather said...

I totally agree with you about artificial food coloring. I don't eat either...well, I try my hardest not to. So many foods have it in it!
Amazon.com was my answer, too. :) I love that store.

Jenilee said...

Jen Chandler said...

This blog parade is awesome! I'm so glad I found out about it :)

The Star Trek Voyager/Jacki Chan comment STILL has me laughing! That would be hilarious fun. I'm off to answer the questions on my own blog (and hopefully send a few more parade participants your way!).

Your Auntie again...just wanted to say woo hoo, you've got over 200 link-ups, that's great! I've enjoyed reading people's answers. I've gotten to many (but not all, I'll admit).

Diana said...

I'm trying to imagine Jackie Chan fighting off the borgs or any other number of aliens. Interesting concept, to be sure. LOL!

Wow, your linky-list has really grown loooooooooong. Are you going to visit alllllllllllllllllllll of us?? *hint hint* LOL! I've been trying to visit a few each day. Such a wide variety of answers! You picked great questions! Have really enjoyed meeting so many bloggers!

Hannah said...

Okay, back again (FINALLY ^_^).

I LOVE peanut m&m's. SOOO good. Mmm...too bad about the artificial coloring.

Also, I think you can be super hilarious. REALLY hilarious. Hopefully you mean to be when you are...hee hee...;-)

I lived in California for four months (San Diego, I think) and it WAS nice...except SO brown ALL THE TIME. Sometimes we had some green. Sometimes. Rarely. The ocean was nice though. I do miss that. ^_^

Love purple. Especially those converse. I have to get some of those now...I outgrew my last pair (isn't that sad to have to say that your FEET outgrew SHOES?) and have been longing for some. ;)

Love you! Such a fun idea! :)

Hannah

Melissa said...

I had to laugh at number 4! I kinda do the same thing! Well, maybe not as dramatic ;) But normally someone will say "i HATE when i get sick" & i will say "I love it." Totally dry. LOL. I mean, DUH, who likes getting sick! LOL.

First time to your blog, love it!
