50 Things About Boosaurus

(For a brief moment, I though about titling this "50 Shades of Boosaurus" but then my sanity kicked in and went NO.)

I don't often get too personal or veer off the subject of bras/boobs/clothing in this blog, but this 50-questions list has been making rounds in the blogger world after FussyBusty started it off (and SweetNothings, UndieGamer, A Sophisticated Pair, and Miss Underpinnings followed), so I figured it'd be a fun little random thing to do as well! :)

1. What time did you get up this morning? Woke up around 8, but then fell back asleep until around 9:30. :P

2. How do you like your steak?  Medium rare, but I rarely (ha) eat steak.

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Hunger Games... I don't go to the theater that often, but there's about three movies coming out next month that I really want to see. I think that will exceed my entire theater-going for the rest of the year!

4. What is your favorite TV show? I don't really watch TV (boring, sorry)... I do like watching re-runs of Columbo, The Addams Family, and Monty Python's Flying Circus.

5. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be? I like where I'm living now (in a valley, close to the beach), but I wouldn't say no to a nice little farm in the French countryside.

6. What did you have for breakfast? Trader Joe's Multigrain O's cereal with organic 1% milk (I like 2%, husband likes 0%, so we compromise with 1%)
("cereal with milk" sounded too boring)

7. What is your favorite cuisine? Good (real) Mexican food, among other random things like cawl (Welsh) and certain Chinese dishes.

8. What foods do you dislike? Bananas, Coke/Pepsi, whipped cream, pumpkin pie, anything spicy, caramel, milk chocolate, most vanilla-flavored things, anything too sugary (which I guess is most of this list), bell peppers

9. Favorite Place to Eat? Chin's Szechwan and The Yellow Deli

10. Favorite dressing? Caesar

11.What kind of vehicle do you drive? One that has definitely had its share of life.

12. What are your favorite clothes? Lingerie. Tunics with belts. Cozy socks.

13. Where would you visit if you had the chance? Wales, Ireland, France

14. Where would you want to retire? That's a bit far in the future! Ask me in about 40 years.

15. Favorite time of day? Early morning (when I actually get up!)

16. Where were you born? San Diego, California

17. What is your favorite sport to watch? I prefer playing rather than watching! But I always watched baseball growing up.

19. How many siblings? One brother.

20. Favorite pastime/hobby? Reading, playing the piano, writing/blogging, video games, cooking/baking

21. Who are you most curious about their responses to this? The construction of this sentence bothers me... any other bloggers, I should think!

22. Bird watcher? Yes!

23. Are you a morning person or a night person? Either. Depending. Probably night if I had to choose.

24. Do you have any pets? Not currently :( I used to have chinchillas, a few chickens, and a dog.

25. Any new and exciting news you’d like to share?  We finally got a PS3... woop!

26. What did you want to be when you were little? A farmer... I think I just wanted a lot of animals.

27. What is your best childhood memory? Hrm, I really have a hard time with open-ended questions like this... my mind wants the question to better define "best" and "childhood". One that stands out is me really wanting to go to Disneyland when I was 5, and my mom said, "Sure, if you earn the money yourself." So I did the 25-50 cent chores around the house and saved up any birthday gifts, earned the money, and we went!

28. Are you a cat or dog person? Dog. But I don't dislike cats or anything.

29. Are you married? 3 1/2 years this month!

30. Always wear your seat belt? Yup (click it or ticket!)

31. Been in a car accident? Just a small one or two

32. Any pet peeves? People reading over my shoulder or cracking their knuckles (or both... augh!)

33. Favorite Pizza Toppings? Black Olives, mushrooms, any kind of cheese

34. Favorite Flower? Roses

35. Favorite ice cream? Blue Bell Groom's Cake (which you can't get on the West Coast *weeps*)

36. Favorite fast food restaurant? Panda Express counts, right? Or In N' Out!

37. How many times did you fail your driver’s test? None, although I accidentally turned on the windshield wipers during the test, panicked, and couldn't figure out how to turn them off for several minutes.

38. From whom did you get your last email? Brastop (does that count?)

39. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? I don't use credit cards (boring? sorry)... but I would spend all I could at little independent book stores.

40. Do anything spontaneous lately? Had a fairly spontaneous early Thanksgiving this past weekend (we'll be eating leftovers until actual Thanksgiving, yay!)

41. Like your job? Not working at the moment, boo

42. Broccoli? I am proud to say that I haven't had to eat it since I have been in charge of making my own meals. :D

43. What was your favorite vacation? I took a random trip to the UK with a friend last year... that was pretty awesome, and I want to go back!

44. Last person you went out to dinner with? My parents and husband

45. What are you listening to right now? The leafblower outside.

46. What is your favorite color? Purple, blue, grey, green

47. How many tattoos do you have? None; I go back and forth on getting one.

49. What time did you finish this quiz? 12:33 pm, aka lunchtime.

50. Coffee Drinker? Tea all the way!

Bonus: If you feel you don't know enough about me already, I did a Follow Friday interview for Invest in Your Chest the other week!

So, what would your answers be?


  1. I'm so glad you ended up filling it out because it's been a lot of fun to read about the other bloggers. I LOVE independent bookstores, and believe it or not, my original dream was to open one myself. However, I ended up feeling passionately about bras too and went in another direction. I used to love going on vacation and finding hole in the wall booksellers who carried books with local ghost stories. It's much harder to do nowadays!

    1. I've often thought that it would be really neat to own/run an awesome little book store! I know of several really good ones in my area, and I hope they're here to stay for quite a while longer.

      I think a combination book-bra-tea/coffee shop would be just about the best thing ever. :D

  2. Very jealous of your PS3! There are so many games for it that I want to play o.o

    1. We were able to get a pretty good deal on it! Which games are you wanting to play? I'm open to any and all recommendations; we're probably waiting until after Christmas to buy games for it other than the one we have (The Jak and Daxter Collection :B)

    2. Journey is a big one for me, I'm also waiting on Final Fantasy versus XIII and The Last Guardian to come out, but there hasn't been much of a peep about either recently (and sadly). Ni no Kuni is another fantastic one (Miyazaki, Spirited Away director, working on an RPG. It sounds too good to be true). Then there are also the HD remakes of Shadow of the Colossus, Eiko, and Okami... Too much goodness!

    3. Ooh, Journey is at the top of our list, as well as several Final Fantasy titles (Husband is lusting after the 25th Anniversary collection...). The rest sound worth looking into more, although since we already have Okami for the Wii, that's probably not a top priority. Thanks for the recommendations! :D

  3. What kind of tattoo would you get if you did decide to go for it? I keep going back and forth about it too, and it's annoying me because I've been doing that for the past five years ><

    1. I've gone back and forth on several ideas over the years - A Bible verse or brief script on my wrist, a Welsh dragon on my shoulder (but it would probably have to be too large for my taste to get any sort of good detail). I just haven't felt completely committed to getting something of such permanence yet, and I have super-sensitive skin and am kind of afraid of a bad reaction. :/ What idea(s) have you been pondering?

    2. Both of those ideas sound cool, but you're right about the dragon having to be big. Small tattoos with detail run the risk of blurring like crazy and becoming unrecognisable over the years.

      I thought of having a picture on my back of a man and a little girl holding hands walking towards my front in a forest or something to symbolise my relationship with God, but if I do ever get that it will be far in the future. My other thoughts have been either God-related (crosses, Bible verses etc) or nature-related, like having a vine up my leg or abdomen or something. My skin's also really sensitive and I'd hate for my tattoo to get infected.
