Re: Ask Me Anything!

  • On a scale of one to rainbow, ROYGBIV being the highest, how much do you love me?
    I'm friends with everybody in this office. We're all best friends - I love everybody here. But sometimes your best friends start coming into work late, and start having dentist appointments that aren't dentist appointments. And that's when it is nice to let them know that you can beat them up.
  • Are you worried you'll regret naming the pup Sookie when the Trueblood craze wears off?  (FWIW, I somewhat regret NOT naming our pup after one of the characters from the books Trueblood is based on Wink )
    We have so much time, and so little to do! Strike that, reverse it.

    I don't think so.  It's surprising how many people haven't even heard of it so they have no idea it's from a show. 

    I regret naming her Sookie when I have a random girl ask me if it's because of Gilmore Girls -- apparently there is a Sookie on there also.  ::: GAG :::

    It gets frustrating when NO ONE (except the random True Blood fan) can pronounce her name.  Usually the dialog goes something like this...

    D-Bag: awwwww what a cute puppy what is his name!?!?

    Me: Thanks!  HER name is Sookie

    D-Bag: Cookie?

    Me: No, Sookie

    D-Bag: Suki (Sue-key) ?

    Me: No, Sookie (SOOK-key) it's like cookie but with an "s"

    Nick doesn't like her to wear a lot of pink so everyone assumes she's a boy.  OMG... D... I kinda know what it's like to be you now :)

    FTR I'm refering to the whole name thing... not that people confuse you for a boy :)  I was kinda ADD with my thoughts just then.

    That's easy!

    USA: Maine or at the very least Northern New England.  I LOVE cold and snow. 

    World: Germany or Hungary.

    Not sure what my dream job is.  I was one of those college students that enjoyed majoring in college.  I could have probably done that forever.  I think I changed my major 3 times and I changed colleges 5 times (my parents LOVE that story).   I HATE what I'm doing now but have no motivation to change occupations.  If anyone has any ideas for me I have a BS (hehe) in Business Admin/Marketing and I graduated with honors!

    Favorite article of clothing... ATM its my fUggs (Minnetonkas from DSW) I wear them way too much and inappropriately.  It's the closest I can come to wearing jammies at work.

     Currently, the wedding.  I have vivid memories of most of my childhood though.  Lots of summer with my grandma who lived in Amish country.  Family vacations.  Holiday gatherings with family.  My trip to England/France.  I have a LOT of great memories. 

  • I'll ask the random ones...

    Your thoughts on people breastfeeding in public?

    One celebrity you wish the media would never report on again?

    Strangely enough even though I adore cold and snow I've never really gotten involved in winter sports.  I've never skied.  I was supposed to snowboard my freshman year of HS but I got mono :( 

    I do like sledding and building innapropriate snow figures :)

    Mostly I enjoy just staying home and relaxing, baking and watching TV when there is a big storm.  We also love going out and driving around in the snow when we get a really bad storm.  It's fun testing the limits of the AWD CR-V (we haven't gotten stuck yet!)

    I actually hate the way they say it in the show. It's supposed to be like Sue-key. The way Bill says it in the show is one of the reasons DH and I can't watch it. It's almost like he's saying sucky. And yeah, there was a Sookie in Gilmore Girls, but they pronounced it right. Big Smile

    I'm totally cool with breastfeeding.  It doesn't bother me at all.  I think some people could use a bit more discretion (ie: I can see nipples flopping about) but generally no issues at all.

    hmmm the celeb question is hard because I love me some gossip!  I would have to go with Jon Gosselin.  I actually enjoy J&K+8 but I'm sick of hearing about all his trampy girlfriends.  I'm totally team Kate on this one.

    I disagree!  I don't think it's supposed to be pronounced Suki.  I also HATE HATE HATE the way Bill says her name.  But everyone else in town pronounces it normally.  We don't draw out the sounds like soookehhh a la Bill.  When we say her name it's just like saying cookie but with an "s".

    Ok, then I approve ;) Bill's way is just soo sexual and perverted sounding, like a bad porn movie. Seriously creepy.

  • Leigha, I disagree. Gilmore Girls character is Suki, pronounced Sue-key, which is correct. But Sookie (like cookie) is right for the True Blood character. Though, yes, the way Vampire Bill says it is awesomely interesting thanks to Stephen Moyer's native British accent mixed with his old Southern drawl.

  • It's crazy but little phonetical differences like that are HUGE to me.  There are some people who can't tell a difference between Sookie and Suki.  My lovely DH is one of them.  We had a great convo where he just said it over and over again untill I agreed that he was saying it correctly.  After all that he says... I still don't hear a difference.
  • My friend is a TB and GG fan, so she usually pronounces Sookie like Suki, and I want to correct her every time, but I understand it's from so many years of GG.

  • The great (not really) thing about the English language is we have no set manner of pronouncing things. Someone just decides. Hence we get heteronyms like lead (the metal) and lead (the verb). Or in my head, Sookie (like soo-kee) and Sookie (like cookie). :)

    But I will ask you some questions:

    Favorite Christmas/winter song?

    Best thrift store find?

    Playboy mansion or Hearst castle?

  • You're an animal-what are you?

  • lol H... I was rolling my eyes as I read your description, thinking "She has NO idea."
