Ten On Tuesday

March 1, 2011

Today I’m jumping in with these questions hosted by Chelsea:

1. What type of cell phone do you have and how would you rate it?
I have an iPhone 3G. I am in love with the iPhone in general but mine is the older model with the new software so it is pretty slow. I’m eligible for an upgrade but that would still cost me $200 which I just can’t justify. So for now, I’ll consider it an exercise in patience-building.

2. What has been your most serious injury?
I’ve never had a broken bone or needed stitches, but once in middle school my brothers and some friends and I were playing a hybrid game of tag and hide and seek on a half-built house in our neighborhood. (Stupid, I know.) I climbed up on the roof (again, so dumb) and got cornered there by whoever was “it” and the only escape was to jump off (this completes the trifecta of idiotic decisions I made that day). I ended up with a nasty sprained ankle that was impossible to walk on, but I was so embarrassed that I didn’t even tell my parents what happened, or I played it down bigtime. So I didn’t go to the doctor, and for the next week I was forced to hop around without crutches. By the end of it the other ankle hurt almost worse.

3. What is one movie you hate and why?
I despise raunchy comedies that have no redeeming value whatsoever. The prime example of this, in my opinion, is Superbad. I’ve only seen clips because I can’t even bring myself to sit through more than a few minutes of it.

4. How many email addresses do you have?
My personal email, my work email, and two old accounts that I no longer use but still have access to.

5. What website do you waste the most time on?
I don’t spend a lot of time Internet surfing, but I do try to keep updated with Twitter. I couldn’t do it without the app for my phone, though.

6. Which Mexican restaurant makes the best salsa?
Not technically salsa, but Los Cucos has some amazing green sauce. (Does green sauce have a real name? I don’t know.)

7. What is your dream car?
I’m sort of driving it, my Toyota Prius. Although mine is six years old and pretty basic, so my dream car would be the newest version with all the extras. I love owning a hybrid, and I like small cute cars.

8. If you could spend up to $100 with no strings or restrictions or guilt, what would you buy?
I’d probably put it toward vacation or maybe even toward a phone upgrade, but that’s a boring answer. A more fun way to spend it would be on a pedicure ($50), a new pair of yoga pants ($20), a magazine subscription ($15), a book ($10), and a drink from Starbucks ($5).

9. What is your favorite board game?
For party games my current favorite is Buzz Word and my all-time favorite is Catch Phrase. I’m also a fan of Scattergories and Cranium. Cranium is the only one that actually uses a board, though.

10. How often do you change your hairstyle?
I think it’s probably 1-2 times a year. Nothing drastic, but I like to grow my hair out for awhile and then chop it off. I usually choose a slightly different style each time.

    From Spring:

    I think it’s called salsa verde?

    You should give Superbad a watch. It does have some redeeming qualities. And also, I think you’re not allowed to write off movies until you’ve actually watched them. :) (I may be biased, though, because I totally love Michael Cera.)

    From kapachino:

    You’re right about not writing off movies till I’ve seen them, but I was so miserable during the clips that I saw that I just can’t do it!

  3. 3

    From Megan:

    Ha! I was just about to write, “I think it’s called salsa verde.” Great minds…

    I also have a big crush on Michael Cera, but I couldn’t get through more than fifteen minutes of Superbad. I’ve heard that I need to press through, though, so maybe one day…

    Kat, I love you with all my heartsoulmindandstrength. But I sure am glad a new post is up. Your to-do list was stressing me the hell out!

  4. 4

    From kapachino:

    I don’t get the Michael Cera hype. I don’t really like watching him at all, but that’s because he reminds me of a certain annoying ex-boyfriend. (Maybe it’s his mouth? Or the way he talks? I don’t know.)

    You think YOU’RE stressed out by my to-do list? It’s haunting me!

  5. 5

    From Megan:

    Exes sure do ruin a lot of things for us, don’t they? Like celebrity lookalikes and potential children’s names. Bummer. It’s why I’m not too fond of Jamie Oliver, by the way.

    (As for the list, my thought is that you already have all of the important things you need to be a great mother. And I have no doubt whatsoever that you will be… new carpets or not. Don’t let the stress rob you of the joy of this time in your life).

  6. 6

    From Elizabeth:

    They’re right–definitely salsa verde! My grandmother always orders enchiladas verdes and FREAKED out once when it came with red salsa, so that’s one I’ll always remember, haha.

    I think our next car will be a Prius, but I’m hoping my 9 year old Volvo keeps on cranking for a bit longer. I’m glad you like yours!

  7. 7

    From kapachino:

    Now that all of y’all have mentioned the name, I realize I did know it. I’m just really white I guess–going to keep calling it green sauce. :)

  8. 8

    From Spring:

    Oh, my comment did go through! Happy day.

  9. 9

    From kapachino:

    It actually went through twice and I deleted one of them! Don’t know what was wrong earlier.

  10. 10

    From Nora:

    You know what’s really bad? Watching Superbad with your parents in the room. because you really had no idea it was so gross. True story. I think I was bright red the entire time.
