interview, heather styles!
1. If you had $50 in your pocket right now and you had to spend it on yourself, immediately - what would you buy without going over?
If I had $50 in my pocket right now, since I have to spend it on myself (yay for being selfish for one moment) and do so immediately, I would definitely go to Newbury Comics and buy myself cds and dvds.
2. What character on television do you currently relate the most to?
Wow, I feel like I haven't watched regular TV in so long... I guess if I had to pick it would Meredith Grey from Grey's Anatomy. Now I'm still kind of a newbie to the show (despite owning the first 2 seasons on dvd), but I definitely can relate to her.
3. Name a song in which you have a strong emotional attachment. Explain why.
"You and Me" by Lifehouse. One of the most amazing songs everrr written. It has helped me thru a really tough boy experience (corny, I know). It is also one of the few songs I can listen to when I am crying and put a smile on my face.
4. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? haha
As far as states, all the New England ones (obviously) so NH, MA, RI, VT, CT, New York, California, Nevada for a minute, Florida, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, New Mexico and Louisiana. I've also been to the Dominican, Israel, Paris, Toronto/Montreal various parts of Ontario and Quebec.
5. If I came to your hometown for 24 hours, what would be something we had to do and things you'd have to show me?
Well, Boston is such a historical city! I would take you to Fenway, Salem, downtown to the Gardens, to some of the historical sights... And I would take you to do some fantastic shopping!
So - here's how it works:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better ! If I already know you well, expect the questions may be a little more intimate! * 3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions. 4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post. 5. When others comment asking to
be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
|it's been far too long
||[07 Feb 2007|10:24am]
so i definitely haven't deserted LJ although my lackage in posting might lead people to believe otherwise. I still check LJ everyday (I guess you could call me a lurker!)...
So I moved home at Christmas after I completed my last semester at Trent! I haven't gotten a "real" person job yet. I am still working for Target but have been promoted to a supervisor. They (meaning the higher up people at my Target) are really pushing for me to become an executive for the company and I have started the process to taking the steps to become one.
Otherwise I have just been hanging out with my friends and met some fantastic new people...
||[15 Oct 2006|10:11am]
ok, so i haven't updated my LJ in a veryyyyy long time.
BUT i have been lurking and checking my friends page up to 3 (yep, 3!) times a DAY!
so i haven't disappeared of the face of the planet. i just haven't updated in a while... but im still here.
||[23 Feb 2006|11:19pm]
so i know i haven't updated in forever and a day... but i have been home for reading week since last thursday night...
tonight, deb and i went and saw josh kelley in concert. HE ROCKS MY FACE BEYOND WORDS! it's the third time i have seen him, and as always it was such an awesome show. he rocks, the guys in his band rocks, it was a good time. plus deb had never seen him in concert before so that made the experience better. he also did a cover of "the weight" by the band (as his first song in the encore) and it was FREAKING AMAZING! a good song and a good cover version of it is not always easy but Josh Kelley and the boys pulled it off super well. we got to meet him too. "hey deb, why are our eyes closed in our picture with josh kelley?" "because we were dreaming about being in bed with him!" hahaha...
also the opening band was pretty good too- the adam ezra group. check 'em out. they are a pretty rockin' band.
anyways i am super tired and i have to work tomorrow... then back to school on Sunday :-(
|how fitting.. one of the many versions of this that i adore

I’m a mess and so is my room;
I like it better that way.
I laugh too much for my own good
and I always say the wrong thing at the right time.
I’m loud and chances are I’ll never end up hating you
even if I say I do. Go figure.
I can't keep a steady relationship to save my life
because; I’m not 'girl-friend material'.
I love guys who wear boxers.
I don’t sit at the popular table at lunch, but not at the nerd table either.
Not popular not geeky.
My crushes are way out of my lead. But it's fun to stare anyways.
I hate school. Not the people just the learning.
I’m not rich. Don’t call me rich. I don’t act rich.
I’m not stuck up, and I don’t brag.
I’m not skinny. Not fat. Once again average.
I hate people before I know them. So don’t get offended.
Coca-cola and toy story boxers turn me on.
&& I don't believe in real love anymore
|i got a good kick out of this!

You Know You're Jewish When....
You spent your entire childhood thinking everyone called pot roast "brisket."
You grew up thinking it was normal for someone to shout "Are you okay? Are you okay?" through the bathroom door when you were in there longer than 3 minutes.
Your family dog responded to commands in Yiddish.
Every Saturday morning your father went to the neighborhood deli (called an "appetizing store") for whitefish salad, whitefish ("chubs"), lox (nova if you were rich!), herring, corned beef, roast beef, cole slaw, potato salad, a 1/2-dozen huge barrel pickles, a dozen assorted bagels, cream cheese and rye bread (sliced while he waited) .. all of which would be strictly off-limits until Sunday morning.
Every Sunday afternoon was spent visiting your grandparents and/or other relatives.
You experienced the phenomenon of 50 people fitting into a 10-foot-wide dining room hitting each other with plastic plates trying to get to a deli tray.
You had at least one female relative who penciled on eyebrows which were always asymmetrical.
You thought pasta was stuff used exclusively for Kugel and kasha with bowties.
You were as tall as your grandmother by the age of seven.
You were as tall as your grandfather by the age seven and a half.
You never knew anyone whose last name didn't end in one of 5 standard suffixes (berg, baum, man, stein and witz.)
You were surprised to discover that wine doesn't always taste like cranberry sauce.
You can look at gefilte fish and not turn green.
Your mother smacked you really hard and continues to make you feel bad for hurting her hand.
You can understand Yiddish but you can't speak it.
You know how to pronounce numerous Yiddish words and use them correctly in context, yet you don't exactly know what they mean. Kinahurra.
You're still angry at your parents for not speaking both Yiddish and English to you when you were a baby.
You have at least one ancestor who is somehow related to your spouse's ancestor.
Your grandparent's newly washed linoleum floor was covered with the NY Times, which your grandparents could not read.
You thought speaking loud was normal.
You considered your Bar or Bat Mitzvah a "Get Out of Hebrew School Free" card.
You think eating half a jar of dill pickles is a wholesome snack.
You're compelled to mention your grandmother's "steel cannonballs" upon seeing fluffy matzo balls served at restaurants.
You buy 3 shopping bags worth of hot bagels on every trip to NYC and ship them home via FedEx. (Or, if you live near NYC or Philadelphia or another Jewish city hub, you drive 3 hours just to buy a dozen "real" bagels.)
Your mother took personal pride when a Jew was noted for some accomplishment (showbiz, medicine, politics, etc.) and was ashamed and embarrassed when a Jew was accused of a crime .. as if they were relatives.
You thought sleepaway college was only where non-Jews went ... Jews went to city schools ... unless they had scholarships or made an Ivy League school.
And finally, you knew that Sunday night and the night after any Jewish holiday was designated for Chinese food.
You're proud to be Jewish - and you pass these jokes on to all your Jewish friends!

it's almost Chanukkah time and I am so excited! gifts, candles, and potato latkes.... mmmmm :-)
but you won't get to see the tears i've cried... behind these hazel eyes.... *it's nice to know that this is the time of year when you can find out who your real friends are. happy holidays.*

ten 300 word journal entries +
two 10 page papers +
two 5 page papers +
one 2 page paper +
one 20 minute presentation =
I AM DONE!! done done done...

Boston on Friday for December break from Dec. 2-Jan.8
p.s. as much as it sucked to do all the work i needed to do, skipping the last week of classes and having no exams makes it all worthwhile.
||[27 Nov 2005|07:57pm]
i can't believe it... only the good die young
||[26 Nov 2005|12:35am]
saw Walk The Line tonight. For those that don't know, it's the movie featuring Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon and it's the story of Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash.
IT IS AMAZING!!!!!! that is all I have to say.
p.s. for those of you who are Tyler Hilton fans, he makes a cameo in the movie and plays Elvis Presley.
p.p.s. now I reeeeaaaalllly need to see Rent.
||[13 Nov 2005|10:57am]
so I haven't posted a real update in a while... last night was the O.A.R. concert... i went with jamie, who was my roommate from my freshman year at university... oh my, it was an amazing concert!
michael tolcher opened. i love that man! this is the 3rd time i've seen him since april (i saw him in toronto with gavin degraw in april, and in boston in september with josh kelley). he is just amazing. jamie had never heard of him but i told her she would adore him and she did. and we got to meet him randomly after the show. he wasn't doing a meet and greet, but we were walking to the car for the drive home and we saw him outside his tour bus and made a point to stop.
O.A.R. = fantabulous!! i had only downloaded a handful of songs by them, and was really only obsessed with about 4 of them previous to the concert... but jamie and i were like let's just go anyways, it would be so fun! so we went. it was general admission and we pushed our way to the front and were front row for the entire show. it was AMAZING!! the venue was small-ish (it was at a club, it was kind of a bigger club but still... i've only recently strted going to concerts at small venues, and i'm used to going to shows at The Tweeter Center or The Fleet Center at home)... it was an amazing show. their songs are amazing, and their jams are wicked. there were some crowd surfers which was crazy. but we had front row seats. oh, and their last song was mine and jamie's favorite song, called "crazy game of poker", and there were points where the band stopped singing so the crowd could sing, and the lead singer, marc, was putting the mic in front of people and for the last like 3 minutes of crowd singing Jamie and I got to sing into the mic! it was AMAZING!
oh and we also stole Dave Matthews Band posters that were plastered on the streets of Toronto...
anyways that's my story. I totally recommend O.A.R. for my friends out there who adore guitar playing bands (although there are 6 members, and only 3 play guitar)...

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a memory of you and me. It can be anything you want, either good or bad. Even if we've never met in 'real' life-- this includes IMs, forums, the phone, email... I don't care. When you're finished, paste this little paragraph in your LJ and be surprised (or mortified) about what people remember about you.

| You scored as Jason Varitek. You are Jason Varitek. You are a natural leader and are highly respected by many. You are tough and will duke it out with any purple-lipped princess when it comes to defending your buddies, which makes you a very loyal friend. Oh Captain, my captain!|

i feel so alone but at the same time i feel so alive
||[29 Oct 2005|10:33am]
so I've been home since last Thursday (the 19) for Reading Week... and wow did this week ever FLY by! I spent my vacation working... It was a little hectic as always, but so nice to see everyone. I was so excited to see people, and it was really nice cuz everyone was like "first off, what are you doing home? second, thank god you're here, we've missed you so!" i dunno, it's a really nice feeling.
so basically all i've done is work, hung out with the girls, shopped a bit... Last night was Meghan and Adam's Halloween party, and let's just say it was a nice drunken party... haha. Tonight is Deb's Halloween Party, I'm not sure if I'll drink for that or not... and tomorrow is back to school :-( but at least I get to see the roomies and have our Halloween Party on Monday!
