The Unadulterated ABC's of Your's Truly
...because I get a ridiculous pleasure out of filling these things out. I mean, who doesn't like to talk about them self?
Ambition: “…to keep in good health and not die.” – name that book/movie. Any of the 28 movie adaptions will do.
Bad Habit: pulling too far into a parking space. It comes from having driven a 12 passenger van for so long and being paranoid about the over-sized back-end sticking out into traffic.
Celebrity Crushes: James McCavoy has been my old-faithful for some years now, although Andrew-Lee Pots (courtesy of Alice and too many Primeval marathons) is taking up current residence at the moment. But one must not forget Chris Hemsworth, either.
Drink: Route 44 sized Barq’s Root Beer (somehow it tastes so much better out of a Sonic cup!) or Cherry Coke (the liquid taste of movie theatre!)
Education: High School diploma, baby. And that’s it.
Food: well, I’m snacking on peanut button out of the jar right now, but what I’d really like to be having is a plain double-double from In-n-Out.
Guilty Pleasure: an entire container of Moose Tracks ice cream more times than I care to share with you.
Hometown: A little town in a big world.
Ice Cream: Either Moose Tracks (refer to Guilty Pleasure above) OR my childhood favorite – the orange sherbert/vanilla stuff with Magic Shell (a more recent addition). Delish.
Jonesing For: for the fall – when Season 7 of Doctor Who is finally released as a complete set instead of those silly Part One and Par Two’s that BBC is getting fond of. It’s getting harder and harder not to find "spoilers" *River Song's voice* on Pinterest.
Kryptonite: Super Saver Shipping. The worst genius idea ever. “Oh I just need 37 cents to get free shipping. Okay, I’ll add this $14.99 movie.” Sad, but true. *looks lovingly at mighty dvd collection*
Look-a-like: back when I wore my hair super short, I got Meg Ryan a LOT. But I’m not as skinny as I was then...
Movie: I can’t pick one, but some favorites are: Anne of Green Gables (for the old-fashioned girl inside me), any and all superhero movies (for my inner super-woman), BBC’s Doctor Who/Primeval (keeping the inner nerd happy), Penelope (best movie kiss), BBC’s Merlin (for when I need some magic), and Beauty & the Beast (for the young, idealistic soul within). List is not extensive.
Nickname: with a name like Kellie, you can only imagine all the nicknames. Kellie-Smelly being only one. Thanks, Uncle Claude. But I prefer more complimentary and tame ones like Kell-Bell or just plain Kel.
Obsessions: honestly, my family is probably one of my greatest obsessions. After that, though, it would be my favorite tv shows. Ask my family about my marathons.
Perfume: unoriginally, it’s Love Spell by *whisper* Victoria Secret. But I’m thinking of switching to something less mainstream.
Quirk: not liking people to see what I'm eating. Not in a "I'm eating something I shouldn't" sort of way...but I just don't like people to see my food. I know. Quirk personified.
Regret: not seeing Beauty & the Beast in 3D at the theaters when it came out a few years back. Or that back in my traveling days, I didn’t pay more attention to all the historical things I saw. I mean, come on, how often does a simple, small-town west-coaster get to see DC (twice), Gettysburg, Boston, Chicago, Savannah, the Grand Hotel on Macinaw Island, Philadelphia, and countless other places that ooze with historical significance? Shoot me.
Starbucks: Summer favorite: Green Tea Lemonade. Winter Favorite: White Chocolate Mocha (so unoriginal)
The Last Book You Read: a truly laughable work called The Quarryman’s Bride, which will have a forthcoming review in a few weeks. Currently reading Perfecting Kate and thoroughly loving it.
Unique Feature: an exceptionally long torso and waist. Sigh. I'm forever committed to the Asylum of Lengthening Undershirts.
Vacation: love them, whether they involve camping in the Redwoods with my family, road-tripping, or just hanging around the house without any schedule or work demands.
Wine: never had it, most likely never will. If I can’t say no to Cherry Coke, I don’t stand a chance against something that can truly be addictive. My choice.
X: ...just an X? Like…X marks the spot? As in a treasure map? Like in Peter Pan? Second Star to the Right and Straight on Til Morning? Which was also the names of the last two episodes of Once Upon a Time. Where Ginnifer Goodwin has amazing short hair. Which I actually have felt myself tempted to emulate. Which would make my brother-in-law give me the look. So maybe I’ll pretend I didn’t think that. And so...yah...here we are back at X.
Years: a whole whopping 26 of them, booyah.
Zen: sitting on our back porch swing watching the sun set or thrift store shopping. Two of life’s best therapies and relaxants.
