Since this is a shiny new blog I figured I would introduce myself with one of those fun 'getting to know you' type prompts. So...enjoy. (If you read it all...I will be super impressed!)
1. What time did you get up this morning? 3pm...I am ever so nocturnal at the moment, which is good because the stars have been awesome! The moon is right next to Mars and Regulus and Venus and Jupiter are so bright!
2. Diamonds or pearls? Neither of those are my favorite, but pearls are better
3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema? Hugo, it was alright not bad or good, I didn't feel cheated out of my $2
4. What's your favorite TV show? Either Mythbusters or Ghost Adventures. The only shows I watch regularly (especially now that I finished Bleach)
5. What did you have for breakfast this morning? Starry Night Tea (I recommend) and some shortbread I baked the night before.
6. What's your favorite cuisine? I love Japanese food, the combination of clean flavors and artful looking dishes makes it a fave. Closely followed by Chinese, Korean, and Indian
7. What foods do you dislike? I probably dislike yogurt more than anything else...because of ORGANISMS!! I know it is so silly, but the idea of putting bacteria into my body to live there (even if it is healthy and I need it to help me) really freaks me out. I expect organisms to be killed by my broken immune system.

30. Are you a daredevil? I am in really stupid ways that almost always end up me getting hurt
31. Do looks matter? that depends...I am not going to buy something if I think it looks like crap, I won't turn away a friend if I don't like the way they look. But I admit I am kinda shallow at first with romance...but if the person I am in love with gets disfigured or something then I won't care

38. What are your nicknames? I still get called Amanda Panda some times, and Mandy Pandy too. Ben has lots of sweet names he calls me, but those are not really nicknames :P
39. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off? no, I have slipper type shoes, sandals, and giant zip up fuzzy boots...so no ties.
