so i had some free time on my hands awhile back… it was a long while back, since i have had zero free time lately. i decided to look at my old myspace account. what a trip down memory lane that was! it was hilarious to read the comments people were leaving five years ago… and the comments from marshall before we were an item. it was also hilarious to read the surveys i filled out (via myspace bulletin.) i found several survey gems in my myspace email that made me laugh. i tucked it away for a busier time in my life (like right now) and decided to post a myspace survey with the original answers (circa 2007) and post my current answers. because that’s fun. for me, at least. good thing this is my blog!
let’s set the scene: i was 23. it was may, 2007. i was recovering from my stupid broken arm. i didn’t have a boyfriend.. marshall and i were just co-workers. but i wasn’t working, because i was laid up on the couch. i had a lot of time on my hands… that could have gone without saying.
(anything in italics)=something i have to say today about my original answer
i will throw in some old flashback photos for visual appeal.
When did your last kiss take place?
OA: the other day (and for the record, it was not marshall)
AT: this morning, before marshall left for work. it wasn’t a very good one… i was sitting on the floor doing my makeup, he was standing over my head, so it was kinda like a spiderman kiss, ya know?
Four words to explain why you last threw up?
OA: whiskey beer jager lortabs (boy, i knew how to party)
AT: i don’t remember the last time i threw up! gold star.

AT: haha yes, actually, earlier today at work. a chip. a popchip, to be exact.
What was the last thing you ordered at McDonald’s?
OA: um i got my boss a #2
AT: don’t remember, but i bet it was something for my boss again. i never buy mcD’s for myself.
What’s crazy to you?
OA: that i broke my arm. really. its a trip.
AT: that i had a dream about a biker gang shooting at another biker gang and marshall was riding his motorcycle next to the gang being shot at and he was shot and killed, and then when i told him about it he told me that the news reported a dead biker with shotgun shells around him and was suspected to be in a biker gang. WHAT THE WHAT? WHAT. no, WHAT?!

AT: i met michelle at brunch with GPP friends yesterday! i am always meeting new people at GPP.
Do you believe that you can change someone?
OA: they have to want to.. but im sure you can have a influence on it
AT: i am feeling like you can have less and less of an influence on changing people and they really just have to want it for themselves.
What bill do you hate paying the most?
OA: car insurance. because lets face it…you put a lot more money into it than you get out of it.
AT: health insurance! it’s way more than car insurance and i use it never.
If you could go back and change one thing what would it be?
OA: july 10th 2003..that would have prevented a lot of other problems also for example canada deportion, and also the whole probation for 18 months was somewhat whack.

[my few hours in canada.. before leaving due to deportation]
