Eleven Questions

in All Posts

I saw this on Tina’s blog, who saw in on Julie’s blog.  It was so fun to read their responses that I thought I’d do Eleven Questions, too.  However, I was confused because their Eleven Question surveys only had ten questions, so I guess the 11th question is for YOU to answer one of the Q’s!


1. In baseball each player gets a “walk up song” that plays on his way up to the plate. What song would you pick?

I really love this song right now!


2. What’s the best thing that happened to you last weekend?


How sad is this?  I can barely remember what I did last week.  Luckily, I have a blog!  Hah.  I would say the best thing that I did last weekend was hang out on my new deck and drink sangria with friends.  It was relaxing and fun.


3. If you could have a starring role in any film already made, which movie would you pick?


The Hunger Games, and I’d want to be Katniss, because I’d get to wear sweet dresses that ignite into flames and fire a crossbow. 


4. What actor/actress would you have play you in a movie of your life?

I didn’t know how to answer this question because I assume that I should pick someone who looks like me, so I went to Celebrity Look-a-Like Generator.  Here’s what the program came up with…


What. The. Heck.  I actually do look like Madeline Albright… She could totally be my grandmother. 


5. What is your favorite quote?

It’s a long one… I first found this in Oprah magazine, and it was also in our wedding programs.

There is a desire within each of us, in the deep center of ourselves that we call our heart. We were born with it, it is never completely satisfied, and it never dies. We are often unaware of it, but it is always awake. It is the human desire for love. Every person in this earth yearns to love, to be loved, to know love. Our true identity, our reason for being, is to be found in this desire…


…love is the ‘why’ of life: why we are functioning at all, what we want to be efficient for… I am convinced it [love] is the fundamental energy of the human spirit, the fuel on which we run, the wellspring of our vitality. And grace, which is the flowing, creative activity of love itself, is what makes all goodness possible.


Love should come first; it should be the beginning of and the reason for everything.


6. What was your first concert?


My first concert was the Rolling Stones.  How cool is that?  Dave Matthews Band and Marilyn Manson opened for them!  Oh, and my mom pulled me out of school to go, which was pretty cool.


7. What Internet website do you visit the most?


Facebook and Twitter.


8. Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you the best and why?


Happy and Sleepy because I am, well, happy and sleepy.


9. If you were on death row, what would your last meal be?


Papa John’s cheese pizza with the garlic dipping sauce, Nutella straight from the jar, and a glass of sweet white wine.


10. What is the background of your computer?


And the eleventh question is… to you!  Answer one of the ten above!

    First Concert – Bret Michaels, at “The Big E” in Massachusetts (keep in mind this was about 4 years ago, past his prime). It was an outdoor concert and pouring with about 25 people in the audience, so guess who got to stand in first row and obnoxiously sing all the songs with him 🙂

  • Breanne April 5, 2013, 1:39 pm

    I’m a total quote NERD… so narrowing that down to a favorite is so hard. That being said, this quote has been on my facebook “about me” profile since the day I got facebook in college and it’s a quote that I presented a memorized reflection on in middle school – so maybe it wins.

    “There are moments in your life that make you, that set the course of who you’re gunna be. Sometimes, they’re little subtle moments. Sometimes, they’re not.” Whistler on Buffy the Vampire Slayer

  • Sarah April 5, 2013, 1:43 pm

    AWESOME song choice!! I just bought tickets to their concert today!! ha!

  • Kristen April 5, 2013, 1:54 pm

    OMG so the look alike generator gave me: Oscar de la Renta (99%), Gary Sinise (91%), Richard Dreyfuss (89%), Fred Durst (?!?!?! 88%) and Tom Cruise (87%)….yup ALL DUDES! She doesn’t look anything like me but I’d want Jennifer Lawrence to play me- she would make my life seem way more awesome/dramatic than it is.

  • Jenny April 5, 2013, 1:55 pm

    First concert Waylon Jennings. And I can thank my parents for taking me to a Rolling Stones concert when I was 10! Sheryl Crow opened. So cool.

  • Taylor April 5, 2013, 2:00 pm

    I just commented on Tina’s blog and I said the exact same thing as you, wanting to be Katniss!

  • Erin @ The Grass Skirt April 5, 2013, 2:10 pm

    I’m depressed. That celebrity generator told me that I look like Ryan Seacrest.

  • Emily @ The Swallow Flies April 5, 2013, 2:16 pm

    Apparently I look like Danny Glover. Interesting.

    Aerosmith (on their Nine Lives tour) was my first concert. I was 15, and my dad took me. It was AMAZING and still one of the best concerts I have ever attended. I loved it so much that I saw them again — twice. 🙂

  • Jen G. April 5, 2013, 2:16 pm

    I took the celebrity generator test and all my results were 60% or less. But I get told I look like Gennifer Goodwin a lot (which I love, because she’s totally adorable).

  • Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs April 5, 2013, 2:26 pm

    Oh my goodness, I am laughing so hard at #4! What random results! 🙂

  • Sarah @ Yogi in Action April 5, 2013, 2:29 pm

    haha I used that random face generator and it identified a piece of paper I was holding as a face- and apparently that piece of paper looked 82% like Jay Leno, anad 80% like Lady Gaga.

    My actual face didn’t have any similiarities that were that high….seems like the system is broken!

  • Rachel April 5, 2013, 2:37 pm

    I love, love, love your last meal! I will eat with you 🙂

  • Jaci April 5, 2013, 2:41 pm

    Rolling Stones was my 1st concert too! 1993 I think, at Joe Robbie Stadium 🙂

  • Sarah April 5, 2013, 2:42 pm

    One of my face matches was Meryl Streep which does not surprise me because I think my mom looks like her 🙂 That was fun!

  • Ashley April 5, 2013, 2:50 pm

    My first concert was the avril lavigne “it’s complicated” tour. Sooo coool…

  • Angela April 5, 2013, 2:53 pm

    Oh my gosh! Madeline Albright! Too funny. I just did my face in the generator and I got Bruce Willis and Rudy Giuliani. Well that’s embarrassing. 🙂

  • Lindsay McAlester April 5, 2013, 3:08 pm

    First concert for me was NKOTB. Oh my! I feel old! Lol

  • Emily April 5, 2013, 3:25 pm

    I laughed SO hard at your celebrity results!!! Too funny. I don’t think you look like any of them, especially the men! lol

  • Meaghan April 5, 2013, 3:28 pm

    I think you look a lot like Alexis Bledel!

  • Sonia the Mexigarian April 5, 2013, 3:34 pm

    Me: 80% Brittany Snow. 78% Britney Spears. 78% Naomii Watts. 76% Patricia Clarkson. 73% Claire Danes.

    Husband got: 74% Boris Yelsin. 71% Michael Keaton. 70% Conan O’Brien. 70% Harrison Ford. 70% Richard Gere.

    I can live with that 😉 Then again it said 72% G. W. Bush for me (wtf?!?!) and 68% Kate Middleton for the Husband. haha.

  • Lauren April 5, 2013, 3:38 pm

    OMG Dave opened for The Stones? What an epic concert that must have been!

  • Amanda April 5, 2013, 3:45 pm

    My first concert was Spice Girls!! Because we were in like 5th grade, one of my friend’s dad had to go with us. Totally won dad of the year for that one!

  • Kaz April 5, 2013, 4:39 pm

    Okay, I am *dead* right now.

    So of course I immediately pop on over to celeb-look-a-like generator, right? And I get matched up with Stephen Spielberg. That’s fine. I can work with that.

    But then. THEN. It decides to detect more faces, right? And it gloms onto a SNOWDRIFT as a face.


    http://imgur.com/LajPBdM <— Go home, Celebrity-Look-Alike Generator; you're drunk.

    So it may not think that YOU look like Madeline Albright…but it certainly thinks that a clump of dingy snow DOES. Apparently, so does Britney Spears. Awesome. XD

  • Caroline April 5, 2013, 4:47 pm

    hahaha, I just did the same with my face and apparently I look like Madleine Albright by 84 % and Angelina Jolie by 89 %. I guess I’m a really hot version of Madleine Albright.

  • Jelena@ FabLifePhd April 5, 2013, 5:22 pm

    My first concert: Anyone remembers Kosheen? 🙂

  • Kiri April 5, 2013, 5:23 pm

    Oh that face generator is hilarious – I got Anthony Hopkins ?!?!?!
    I’ve just redone this on my blog, and the answer I want to share with you is :
    I would be Jane Russell’s character in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Dorothy Shaw. The outfits, the songs, the elegance, oh envy!

  • emily April 5, 2013, 5:35 pm

    I went to the celeb/photo web site immediatly (of course) and I got Albright too! Also, several male celebrities.

  • Rachel April 5, 2013, 5:53 pm

    My first concert was also the Rolling Stones! Spin Doctors opened 🙂 My celeb look-a-like is Morena Baccarin from Homeland, so I’d feel good about her playing me in a movie.

    The background on my computer is a pic from Capri, Italy. And my last meal would be a filet of beef & some tortellini from my favorite Italian restaurant here in Seattle.

  • Kerin April 5, 2013, 6:10 pm

    That look alikes cracked me up!! You kind of look like shiri appleby. 🙂

  • Aja April 5, 2013, 6:41 pm

    I totally love the new FOB song right now. Plus, them being back together just reminds me of high school. Apparently I look like Keira Knightly and Hilary Duff. Interesting.

  • Anna {Herbivore Triathlete} April 5, 2013, 7:22 pm

    My first concert was Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch. I won tickets from a radio show contest! These posts are always so fun to me, I love reading them.

  • Stephanie C April 5, 2013, 7:33 pm

    Oh last meal. My favourite question.
    meal from Jitlada: Beef Khua Kling (dry curry), Fish Ball stuffed with salted Duck Egg in Green Curry with tons of rice and a thai iced tea.
    Because no meal is complete without a beer and dessert: Rochefort 6 and Bread Pudding from Masa. I would love all of this in front of my right now…

  • K April 5, 2013, 7:46 pm

    First concert was savage garden! Surely even some Americans would remember them? They had a no.1 in the 90s over there!

    I saw them at the Suncorp piazza in brisbane (at Southbank). Anyone who knows brisbane should find that pretty funny!

  • Amber K April 5, 2013, 7:46 pm

    I love your answer for your last meal. I totally miss really good pizza (gluten-free is okay, but….not the same).

    As for what celebrity I look like, I’ve used various websites and they always come back with Asian actresses that I’ve never even heard of. Apparently my ghostly white face is secretly Asian?

  • Avery @ Southern Belle Living Well April 5, 2013, 9:16 pm

    Nutella with ice cream. Oohh…that would be it for sure.

  • Lindsay @ prettylittleparadise April 5, 2013, 9:43 pm

    I think you look like the mom on revenge (madeline stowe)! Don’t know why but every time I watch it i think she looks like she could be related to you!!

  • Heather April 5, 2013, 9:47 pm

    Just to share the results of my celeb look-alike test … Mark got Ben Affleck and I got Tom Hanks. So, yeah.

  • luv what you do April 5, 2013, 9:58 pm

    I love that song too! I am thinking about pre ordering their newest album. Love the boys from Chicago!

  • Alexandra @ Loving the Good Life April 5, 2013, 10:33 pm

    I just spent way too much time on that celebrity look alike generator! It’s so fun! I look like J.K. Rowling or Meryl Streep haha.

  • Kellan April 5, 2013, 11:30 pm

    I actually had not heard that fall out boy track before…love it…will be adding it to my playlist 🙂 Great post!

  • Edmund April 6, 2013, 8:02 am

    My last meal would be a nice plate of chicken rice with lots of chilli.

  • Kate April 7, 2013, 9:26 pm
  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) April 8, 2013, 12:55 am

    I love this! I might answer these on my blog 🙂

  • Eric Rathdown April 12, 2013, 4:31 am

    Whoo Hoo.. According to the celebrity generator I look like Sean Connery.. That;s made my day.. Well I am bald and do have a beard, but that’s about it. I will keep dreaming though
