Getting to know you

I got n email from Cindy yesterday saying she was bored and asking people to post… so this should entertain you for a little while!

Not too long ago I was being a typical girl and asking Jay tons of questions… so here are some and guess what, if you are reading it YOU ARE OFFICIALLY TAGGED to answer the questions on your blog!

Why were you given your particular name?
My Dad picked out my name. In fact, I think he picked out each sister’s name. If you haven’t heard the story before, it goes like this. My Dad was in a grocery store parking lot, when he spots a very attractive girl. The significant other of this girl called out to her, “Vanessa” and there the seed was planted in my Dad’s mind that his soon to be born baby girl shall be named Vanessa.

Funny, my Dad names all his daughters after attractive girls.

What is your favorite cookie?
Chocolate with white chocolate chips and/or macadamia nuts.

What place would you like to visit?
1. South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore

2. Egypt to see the pyramids
3. Turks and Caicos – for their diving
4. Cancun – See the pyramids
5. Northern CA – Redwood Forest & Yosemite (Yes, I live in the State and have not experienced these two treasures)
6. NY (so much to see there and it looks like I will be visiting this one is spring)
7. Spain – To see where my ancestors came from (another one that will be happening in Summer )
8. New Zealand/Australia

What is your favorite thing about your mom?
Her cooking

What is your favorite thing about your dad?
EVERYTHING! Mainly, the way his mind worked and that he would love to share it with me.

What is your favorite thing about yourself?
My randomness

What musical instruments can you play?
“One time at band camp..” Yup, I used to play the flute! Haven’t pick one up since the 5th grade, tho.

What is the strangest thing you ever did?
Funny how the sexiest, stupidest, smartest thing I ever did pop in my head, but strangest, not so easy!
I guess being bored and have nothing to do at 2AM. I would dress in full goth and walk to random locations to see what time they opened. Also, I have play hide-and-go-seek in a cemetery.

What is the strangest food you ever ate?
Besides, accidentally eating food that has good bad. The weirdest thing I ate was a hollowed out pickle with strawberry ice cream stuffed in it. No I was not pregnant. I was in HS and a friend recommended it.

You dressed in full Goth just to see when random stores opened? That's really funny! In an odd sort of way. If I woke up at 2a and looked out the window and saw you walking around, I'd think I were dreaming about being in a Buffy episode.

Yup! I had nothing better to do and couldn't go to sleep, o might as well dress up and walk to Satrbucks and see what time they open.
