The Five Questions Meme

How this meme works:
1 - Leave a comment, saying you want to be interviewed.
2 - I will respond; I'll ask you five questions.
3 - You'll update your journal with my five questions, and your five answers.
4 - You'll include this explanation.
5 - You'll ask other people five questions when they want to be interviewed.


from nitro26 :

1. Winchesters, Petrellis, or both? Why?

Ahh, why does the first question have to be the hardest? D: If we're talking favorites, I can't say I have one. I like each pair of brothers at different times... if I want something really, really fucked up, angsty and dark as hell, I'll immerse myself in the Winchesters. If I want something a little less fucked up, but still angsty and dark as hell, I'll go with the Petrellis. I know both pairs have their good and bad moments (and there's a lot of great stuff out there that isn't soul crushing) , but that's sort of how I reason it out in my head. It also depends on what I encounter in fandom-- if I read a fantastic Nathan/Peter fic, I'll go searching for more and it'll be my current "obsession", for lack of a better term. (Right now it's the Winchesters, though, seeing as the last two episodes of the season are fast approaching.)

2. If you had to spend 24 hours locked in a room with any fictional character of your choice, who would you choose?

I really had to think on this one-- I had a couple of initial answers, but those were more *ahem* shallow reasons, and there's no way I'd be able to spend 24 hours with those people without going crazy. So I think I'd go with Jessica Moore, from Supernatural... from the little we've seen of her, she seems like she'd be fairly easygoing and levelheaded, which is what I would desperately need from someone else in such a situation. (And I will admit she's easy on the eyes. ;D )

3. Top five favorite singers and/or bands?

My absolute favorite band is Evanescence... I know it's labeled as "emo teen" music by most of the internet, but I still love their sound (especially Amy Lee's voice; she's amazing). I don't have any real favorites after that, but I also like Kelly Clarkson, Three Days Grace, Queen, and RyanDan. (I have an eclectic mix of tastes, lol.)

4. What’s your favorite meal? Favorite dessert?

Ooh, that's hard-- usually my favorites depend on how I'm feeling at the time. But if I had to choose just one meal/dessert, it would have to be my mom's beef stew and butter dips, and cherry pie. The beef stew is simple-- meat, carrots, potatoes, and onions. The butter dips are too; they're just strips of dough (a lot like biscuit dough) drenched in butter and baked. They're horrifically fattening, but oh so good. ;) And I love cherry pie mostly because I never get to eat it at home... everyone else in my family doesn't like it. :(

5. Describe your dream vacation.

New Zealand. I can really sum it up like that. This probably sounds a bit ridiculous, but I've wanted to visit ever since I saw The Lord of the Rings when it first premiered in theaters... the scenery was so breathtaking, and I've always had some connection, I guess you could say, to untouched nature, so it's been a dream of mine for awhile. I don't really care what I do when I get there, or even who I'm going with, as long as I can just go.

Oh, THIS. I always wondered whether I was the only one. And I like your answer. Both brothers are so different. It's like being asked whether you like cake or chips better - there's no way you can pick one because there's such a stark contrast between the two.

2. Aw, that's a good idea. I'd much rather be locked up with someone I'd consider a friend rather than like, a guy I liked or something.

3. I totally went through my Evanescence phase (black eyeliner and all), but I still like their stuff. I just have to be in the right mood for it. She's got an amazing voice.

4. Mmm! Those butter dips sound delicious!

5. ME TOO. Omg, I think we are brain twins. ;) It looks sooooo beautiful. I mean, I'm sure they must play it up to some extent in LOTR and the other movies, but still. I'd lovelovelove to go there.

1. I'm a fandom junkie, definitely. You can usually tell what I'm into at the time by searching my YouTube favs; there'll be six or seven of the same fandom, then it'll switch to something else.

2. Mmhmm. I nearly said Nathan Petrelli, then realized what an insane idea that actually was. XD

5. Yeah, right now I'm trying to save up the money for a semester abroad in New Zealand... I have some time, but it's still a lot even considering the fact that my financial aid will probably pay for a fair amount. O.o

Really? Oh wow, that's awesome! I hope it'll all work out. And you've gotta take lots of pictures if it does. :D

Thanks! :D And I most definitely will.

1. I like switching fandoms too... There are some I'll always like, but sometimes I read some and forget about it later...

2. here's no way I'd be able to spend 24 hours with those people without going crazy

You're totally right about that! It's better choosing someone you know you'll get along with.

3. Well, I never had an "Evanescence-Phase". I love the sound (and can't wait for the new album) and Amy Lees voice, but it's just music, not a lifestyle or something for me.
I also like Nickelback, Nightmare (J-Rock), P!nk, Cinema Bizarre and Dido (my taste is really eclectic too, you could say XD). It always depends on my mood.

4. I got hungry. Really hungry. I have something my whole family hates, too: Coated Peanuts with Wasabi!

5. Wow. That's a pretty good idea and I totally get your point. Though I'd love go to Brittany, New Zealand sounds really cool!
I hope it works out!

3. It always depends on my mood.

Me too! One day I'll be listening to angry rock, the next day will be mindless pop music, and the next day will be show tunes. XD And I CANNOT WAIT for the new Evanescence album!!! \o/ I'm really hoping they tour again, because I want to see them in concert so badly.

4. I have something my whole family hates, too: Coated Peanuts with Wasabi!

I've never had those... what do they taste like? I've had peanuts and wasabi separately, but not together, though I've seen them sold in stores.

5. Though I'd love go to Brittany, New Zealand sounds really cool!

Ooooh that would be pretty awesome too! And thanks :D

Me neither. I'm always checking the webstde, but you can't find much information there...
I want to see them in concert too... I hope they come to Germany.

what do they taste like?
They taste... spicy. Very spicy. If you eat too much, it feels like your whole mouth burns.
