Who are you? Mouse’s edition

Just another questionnaire I found. And I’m trying to get the caffeine out of my system so I can sleep. Plus, I have new friends on Facebook so I thought I’d fill out an ice-breaker type questionnaire (hello, new Facebook friends). So here it is.

You might actually learn something new. You never know.

1. Name:
~ Mousenomia Tadpole.

2. Nickname:
~ Mouse.

3. When is your birthday?
~ January 5th.

4. Hair Color:
~ Brown.

5. Eye Color:
~ Brown.

6. Height:
~ Five feet, four-and-a-half inches. So you could round up or down. tee hee.

7. Where did you go to elementary school?
~ Hmm. That depends on where we were living at any given time. I went to three elementary schools: Bethesda Elementary in Lawrenceville, GA; Columbus Elementary in Appleton, WI; and Jefferson Elementary in Appleton, WI.

7a: Where did you go to middle school? (This was not part of the original questionnaire; I added it for posterity, tee hee.)
~ I went to two different middle schools: Wilson Junior High in Appleton, WI; and Edwardsville Junior High School in Edwardsville, IL.

8. Where did you go to high school?
~ I went to three different high schools in my four years of high school: Edwardsville High School in Edwardsville, IL; Waubonsie Valley High School in Aurora, IL; and Kennedy High School.

9. Who was your favorite teacher?
~ The creative writing teacher at Waubonsie Valley in Aurora, IL. She was the best.

10. Are you in college?
~ Not currently. But I’ve recently been thinking more and more about going back.

11. Where do/did you go to college?
~ I’ve gone to two different colleges thus far: Mount St. Clare College (n/k/a Ashford University) in Clinton, IA; and Kirkwood Community College.

12. What is/was your major?
~ Both times, it was English/creative writing.

13. What was your favorite subject?
~ Creative writing. Or, if you don’t count that as a subject, English.

14. What do you want to be when you grow up?
~ When I was younger, it was either to be a writer, an actress, a singer, or a meteorologist (yeah, I’d forgotten about the meteorology slant I had as a kid). Nowadays, I’m still wanting to be a writer/author, but I think I’d also like to try for being a counselor.

15. What is your favorite book?
~ The Language of Goldfish by Zibby O’Neal. I like to tell people that book would tell you more about me than I ever could.

16. Who is your favorite author?
~ It’s a tie between Sylvia Plath and Sarah Vowell. Really, I can’t choose between them.

17. What is your favorite quote?
~ Kate Winslet’s “This is me – like it or lump it.” Sums me right up.

18. What is your favorite children’s book?
~ The one I remember most fondly is Danny and the Dinosaur.

19. What is your favorite comedy film?
~ Hmm. Hard to pick just one. Some of my favorites include “Mean Girls,” “Galaxy Quest,” “Clue,” “Married to the Mob,” and “The Birdcage.” That’s quite the mix, let me tell you.

20. What is your favorite drama film?
~ “Badlands” is my favorite film of all time. Notwithstanding that choice, it is hard to choose just one. I tend to like dramatic movies more than any other genre, so I have many favorites.

21. What is your favorite horror film?
~ Either “Carrie,” “The Company of Wolves,” “The Craft,” or “May.” Notwithstanding those choices, I don’t really have one. I am not a big horror fan. I did go through a spate of time wherein horror was all I watched, and “Suspiria” was the best during that spate of time. But I no longer have “Suspiria” on DVD. So.

22. What is your favorite sci-fi film?
~ “Ex Machina,” I guess. Not really sci-fi, I know, so perhaps that doesn’t count. “The Fifth Element,” then. That’s more of a comedy, you say? Then perhaps the first three “Star Wars” movies. And by first three, I don’t mean the prequels.

23. What is your favorite Disney movie?
~ It’s a dead heat between “Frozen” and “Sleeping Beauty.”

24. Who is your favorite Disney character?
~ Elsa, no question. Anna is a close second, though, and then, I don’t know, Mulan.

25. Who is your favorite actor?
~ Nicolas Cage.

26. Who is your favorite actress?
~ Sissy Spacek.

27. What is the last movie you saw on DVD?
~ “Big Hero 6” with family.

28. What is the last movie you saw in theaters?
~ “Ex Machina.”

29. What is your favorite TV show?
~ It was “Daria” way back when. Nowadays, I don’t have a favorite TV show, because I hardly watch TV.

30. What is your favorite channel?
~ I really don’t have one. Used to watch Nickelodeon a lot, until our cable company’s dispute with Viacom couldn’t be resolved and they pulled all Viacom channels. Drat it, cable company! I tend to watch a lot of HGTV shows, so I guess it’d be HGTV.

31. Do you watch soaps?
~ No. Talk about unrealistic….

32. How many DVDs do you own?
~ Approximate 283.

33. What is your favorite song?
~ At the moment? Don’t really have one. Of all time? Won’t say just yet.

~ Neko Case.

35. What is your favorite band?
~ Queen.

36. What is the last CD you bought?
~ In a hard copy? “Sylvia Plath Reading Her Poetry.” In MP3 format? Gosh, can’t remember.

37. What CD is in your CD player?
~ I am currently obsessed with and only listen to my Pandora stream on my phone. So my CDs are gathering dust, so to speak.

38. What is your favorite piece of artwork?

39. Who is your favorite artist?
~ Again, too many to name. Because I like art of all mediums. Notwithstanding, I love love love the Victorian photography of Julia Margaret Cameron. I need more books about her and her craft.

40. What is the last museum you went to?
~ That was the Milwaukee Art Museum, back in, gosh, 2006, I think. Whenever Mom went to Milwaukee and I tagged along. Perhaps that was 2007. I don’t remember when. But it was years ago.
