Happy Monday greetings, everyone!
In case you didn’t already know, Christmas is just a mere 19 days away.
Also, anyone want to help me gift wrap this year? Like…no joke. I could use a few extra hands or 18 with wrapping. I will request photos of your previous wrap jobs to make sure you have the proper touch. Just kidding. This isn’t a dating app. I don’t need visual proof. So, if you’re interested, you know where to find me.
Well, let’s get down to business, shall we?
In case your detail oriented hat was not placed on top of your head at the beginning of reading this, you might have missed the title of this week’s post.
Let’s say it together!
Yes, you did read that right.
You might have said it right too, but that’s not the point.
I see this word and I immediately feel like we should be breaking out to a corresponding song and dance much like supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
Anyhoo, I don’t think this is actually a real word…I honestly didn’t check to confirm…and quite frankly, it doesn’t matter.
It is a fun word.
And this week’s post is meant to be just that…
Please keep your arms and legs inside the car at all times because HERE WE GO!
I Googled “fun get to know you questions” and this is what I ended up with.
What’s the funniest place you’ve ever fallen asleep?
-Anyone who has been around for me quite some time knows that I can fall asleep anywhere. LITERALLY. While I can’t say that there is really a funny place that I’ve ever decided to snooze, I can safely say that I have fallen asleep on the vinyl plank floor of my house several times.
Tell a story about a time you felt super old. What happened?
-Does last night count? Falling asleep on the couch before the clock even strikes 10. That makes me feel old. Couple this with the fact that I can’t seem to sleep in past 7am and…well…old.
What’s your go-to dance move?
-This is easy. Obviously a shanay turn or jazz square.
What would be the silliest feature of your dream house?
-A lanai in the backyard area that is reminiscent of my favorite TV show, The Golden Girls. Everything happens on the lanai: gossip, drinking, eating, sleeping, dancing—the list goes on and on.
What’s the worst fashion or hair decision you’ve made?
-Straight blonde hair in high school during my senior year. Don’t believe me? Just ask for the pictures. There is visual proof. Mmmbyeee.
What’s the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?
-During the freshman year of high school, there was a big food fight at school and I couldn’t get under the table quick enough. For the rest of the day, I had to walk around with tuna and chocolate milk on my shirt. Two foods that I still LOVE to this day though.
What fictional character would you be best friends with in real life?
-Clifford the big red dog. He would be wonderful to cuddle with and could also double as transportation instead of a car.
What is the weirdest snack you like to eat?
-This isn’t really weird per se, but I love edible cookie dough.
If someone wrote a book about your life, what would the title be?
–Kindness + Self Love = Eternal Sunshine
What unwritten rule would you make mandatory if you could?
-Treat others as you wish to be treated.
If you had to make a house out of food, what kind of food would it be?
-Welch’s fruit snacks…the ones that come in the blue box/bag.
What board game are you absolutely amazing at and why?
-Sequence. Just ask Devin.
If you ran for president, what would your campaign slogan be?
-Justice & love for ALL.
What game show would you be an amazing host of and why?
-Wheel of Fortune, but I want to do Vanna White’s job and touch the letters and wear fun, fashionable clothes. If Price is Right can have male models, then Wheel of Fortune can certainly have a male letter toucher.
If you could change the ending of any famous movie, which movie would it be? What would your new ending be?
-I think I would choose The Wizard of Oz. And there are two things I would change. I would add an image of a rainbow in the sky while Dorothy sings about one in the barnyard AND would end the movie with an image of a rainbow as well in the window outside the farmhouse as Dorothy realizes there is no place like home.
What song will you never forget the lyrics to?
-Katy Perry’s “Firework”…DUH. Do you even know me?!
What word do you always mispronounce?
-There are actually two that come to mind. Worcestershire is the first one and the second one is Kayne West. There is literally an inside joke with what I used to call him because I never realized I was saying his name wrong, so I just ran with it. How do I say it? Ask me to talk it out loud when you see me in person next, but if I were to phonetically spell it out, it would be something like this: ‘KY-AIN-WASTE.”
What popular trend bothers you?
What nicknames have people called you throughout your life?
-Mr. Sunshine, Johnny, Jip…all of which have still stuck around to this day.
What one story about your childhood best explains the person you are today?
-This one is so hard because I feel like there are so many stories from my childhood that explain the person I am today. A story that explains my emotional element would be the fact that I became incredibly distraught and upset when I found “To: John From: Santa” tags on the computer in my parents’ study. Growing up, I was always the child that wanted to perform and be in the spotlight whether it was the church pageants, school plays and musicals, playing piano at the high school talent show/coffee houses…I just always wanted to be under the lights watching people in the audience and seeing their smiles. I also used to pretend to be Vanna White in the basement growing up, so that goes back to the fact that I would make a great host for Wheel of Fortune. Need I say more? I’m sure my mom and dad have some good stories that could fill in a few paragraphs here too!
What’s the best prank you’ve ever pulled on someone?
-Back in college, I pulled a prank on multiple people telling them that I was kicked out of the School of Communications at Penn State because my GPA wasn’t good enough. I had a letter that I had typed up from the President of the college with my best attempt at an official looking signature, so that when anyone didn’t believe me, I could show them the letter. I got a lot of people with that one; however, my prank days are pretty much over.
What is one weird fact or tidbit that you still remember from school?
That Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492.
What’s a pet peeve that you would make illegal if you could?
-Chewing with your mouth open.
And to end this week’s blog post, I will post the question that I remember from my first-round interview at my current employer, WebstaurantStore because it was one of my favorites!
If you were in a room with an elephant what would you do?
-Take a selfie with it, post it on Instagram, and use the sepia tone filter.
I hope you found this week’s post to be fun and PHANTASMAGORICAL.
Sprinkle sunshine always,
