11 Things Tag!

I was tagged by the lovely Kristen at Glitter Gloss and Glaze in my very first tag post!

Here are the rules according to Kristen:

- Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
- Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.
- You have to choose 11 people to tag and link them on the post.
- Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her.
- No tag backs.
- No stuff in the tagging section about 'you are tagged if you are reading this'. You legitimately have to tag 11 people.

 I shall start with 11 things about me:
1. I hate "Everybody Loves Raymond." My family is way funnier than his, and no one pays to watch us. Yes, I'm a little bitter.
2. I'm kind of a news-junkie. I watch more news-related TV than fictional programming with plots and stuff.
3. I am physically incapable of not playing with my hair.
4. I'm a hands-on kind of girl. I like to decorate stuff, build things, cook, clean/fix my car and stuff like that. I don't like to sit still.
5. I like shoes. A lot. Especially colorful high heels. I have over 50 pairs in my closet. Yes, they still fit in my closet. Barely.
6. I love to read and write, and I fully intend to write a book someday. I don't know what it will be about, but it's going to happen.
7. I would not survive a day without music. Even if there's nothing actually playing, I'll probably be singing to myself. I have even learned to love some country music, mostly due to geographic location and my choice in friends.
8. Despite my frequent musings about winning the lottery, I very rarely buy tickets. Maybe that's why I'm not winning...
9. I work in tech support. I see every side of human stupidity and craziness.
10. I'm only about 5'6", but I have to buy jeans with a 34-35" inseam to wear them with heels (33" for flat shoes). I can't help but wonder if I'm really some kind of freak, or if the clothing industry needs to rethink the length of people's pants.
11.I am confessed cat lady. The Amazing Rando is spoiled rotten, but he's really handsome. Makes the boyfriend a little jealous.

And now, for Kristen's questions:
1. What is your favorite movie?
"The Princess Bride" is my all time favorite, though "Singin' In the Rain" and "Easy A" are right up there.
2. What is one beauty product you could not live without?
Moisturizer! My skin is dry, my lips are dry, my hair is dry. I would shrivel up or look like an alligator.
3. How much is *too much* for you to spend on a makeup item?
Anything over $50 causes me to raise my eyebrows. I'll drop a little cash on something awesome (Hello, Naked palette!), but I've made it this far on samples and reasonably priced items.
4. Ryan Reynolds or Ryan Gosling?;)
Reynolds. Green Spandex. Need I go on?
5. What is your go-to comfort food?
Ice cream. Ben & Jerry are my BFFs, though heavy stress stops me from eating almost entirely.
6. If you could only paint your nails one color for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pink. As much as I like to experiment, and neutrals may be more practical...A great hot pink is hard to beat.
7. Who is your hero?
My parents. Cliche, I suppose, but they've been married for a long time. Even in the face of adversity, they still show affection every day while maintaining some independence and individuality. I'm hoping to have that.
8. What was your favorite childhood cartoon?
Animaniacs! I was leaving my childhood by then, but I still think it's hilarious.
9. Do you have any scars on your body? (if so, where/from what?)
No major scars, but I have several little scratches from Rando. There's also a faint scar from when I got my training wheel caught on the curb and scraped my leg.
10. Can you drive a stick-shift car? (manual transmission)
My father would disown me if I couldn't drive a manual transmission. The men in my family are all car guys. I have never owned an automatic, and I really don't want to.
11. What is your favorite thing about blogging?
Once I get home from work, my brain hurts. Blogging gives me an outlet for creativity and fulfills my need to write, but it also gives me an excuse to buy pretty things and practice my photography. 

And now for the tagging! 

This is the part I hate. I'm still fairly new in the blogging community, so I'm tagging people whose blogs I've read and liked over the last few months and chatted with on Twitter. I'm also not tagging 11 people. I will not be offended in any way shape or form if you're not into responding. I'm also stealing Kristen's questions, because I have the dumb right now and can't think of anything better to ask. :)
