Questions I Can't Seem to Answer

Blogathon 2006

Sprite asks: What's the first book you remember buying for yourself?

You know, I have no idea. Absolutely none. I do remember the first CD I bought, though - Midori's Encore. Or was it Live at Carnegie Hall? Ack. Apparently I don't remember. Well, I know it was one of those two - it was on my twelfth birthday, when I saw her at Tanglewood.

Liz asks: Best movie simply based on FX?

Huh. I don't know. I do like sci fi and fantasy, but I really watch for characters, not effects. So I'm having a hard time separating that out in my brain. I think the only movie I'd list in my top ten or so favorites that has many effects is Serenity.

and What was your favorite item of clothing as a child?

Hmm. I have plenty of favorites now, but I can't think of anything in particular as a child. Right now, my absolute favorite "outfit" is a purple fleecy hoodie, flannel pants with a print of cakes and ice cream and stuff (both of the above from Costco), and handknit socks.

From Carrie K: Who is your favorite (comic book/tv) superhero and why?

I... don't know. I guess I haven't watched/read enough superhero stuff. Does Violet Incredible count?

and What was the first "grown up" book you read, at what age?

No idea. It was probably something in middle school, and I'd guess it was either a mystery or non-fiction, maybe a biography of an author or composer or historical figure.

Hi! Just a quick little comment to say you're doing great. Just three more posts and you've done it! :-)

To be fair, I can't remember the first book I bought for myself, either. I think the first grown up book I read would be when I checked out "Gone with the Wind" in seventh grade. It was the first book I ever had to renew twice in order to finish!

I have no idea what the first book I bought myself was. I do remember the first album I bought (and so long ago that it was an album).

And yes, Violet Incredible counts.

I had this plaid skirt as a kid that twirled up all the way when I spun around. I LOVED that skirt. :)

First book I bought myself, no idea. First adult book, don't remember that either. Maybe North and South after seeing the mini-series in 4th grade? It was around that time though, even if that wasn't the book.

all of these random questions are fun!
