Eldarwen's Blog Party!

Yes, this is my second post today, and I am aware that I usually don't post more than once a day. However, this is a special occasion! And I am posting twice today. Just so you know. :P
Here are the questions for Eldarwen's Blog Party ( :
1) How old are you? I am 15.
2) What name do you go by on blogger? Katie G.
3) When is your birthday? December 8th
4) If you could live anywhere in the world, besides where you live now, where would it be? The mountains! I love the mountains. We used to live in the mountains, but then my Dad got a job as a band director at a school and we had to move. :(
5) How did you find out about Blogger? Well, I had been bugging my Mom to get a blog for awhile now because she had officially started her photography business. So she signed up and I eventually convinced her to let me get a blog as well.
6) Tell us something interesting about yourself: When I was about eight or nine my whole family did Operation Christmas Child. Everyone got their own shoebox and I filled mine up for a girl who was around my age. I put a picture of myself in the box as well as a letter with address in it. I told the girl that if she ever got the chance, I would love to receive a letter from her. Well, a few months later, I received a letter from Latvia! My Mom looked at it and she was so confused. "Latvia? Why on earth are you getting letters from LATVIA?" We opened it and it was from the girl that received my shoebox!!! Her name was Kitija. We wrote back and forth for a long time until we both moved and now I don't know where Kitija is or what she is doing, but I still pray for her.
7) What was your favorite toy when you were little? I had a little purple unicorn with hot pink hair that I got from a McDonald's Happy Meal. That thing wasn't any bigger than length of the palm of my hand (my hand now anyway :D ), but that unicorn was the bomb.
8) What is your favorite meal? Have you ever cooked/helped cook that meal? My favorite meal is probably fettuccine alfredo with salad, beans, and garlic bread. And yes, I have helped cook this before.
9) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? The high frizz factor that my hair seems to adore. -.-
10) Are you an outside person, or an inside person? Depends on what day you catch my. And what season it is!
11) Are you a mommy's boy/girl, or a daddy's boy/girl? I think I am probably both! haha.
12) In one word, describe the feeling you get when you stub your toe, after just being told by your parents that you are grounded for the next month: Frustration.
13) Let's say you TP'd your friend's house (for those of you who don't know what TP'd stands for, it means toilet papered. As in, put toilet paper on their trees, cars, house, porch, etc.). If someone asked you why you TP'd your friends house, you would say: Oh man... I have never TP'd anyones house so I have no idea... Probably something like '' 'Cause it was fun" or something..
14) Have you ever gone swimming in deep, dark, dirty water? yes... *shudder* I was at camp one year. Instead of having a pool, they had a roped of area in a pong. A VERY dirty pond. Like so dirty you could barely see your hand in front of your face kinda dirty. Gross.
15) Have you ever dreamed about getting ready to leave the house, and forgetting to get your pants on? Um, no. Not that I remember.
16) Have you ever done something so ridiculous, that you wish you'd never done it? If so, what? Yes, I know for a fact that I have, but right now I can't remember what that was.
17) Imagine that you saw a purse snatching. What would you do?
a. scream and run away
b. move out of the state/country
c. tackle the purse snatcher to the ground.
d. ignore it, start whistling, and turn the other direction.
I think I would try to do 'c', but I'm not sure how that would turn out. :-/
18) How many friends do you have on blogger? LOTS.
19) What makes blogging so much fun for you? Just being able to share some of what my life is like with others. Plus, I really like typing, :)
20) You're a turtle, who has bet that you can win a race with a rabbit. How does it turn out? The rabbit gets to scared, he packs all his stuff up, moves out of the country, and change his name to Jack Sparrow, after his role model. I would be declared the winner since I didn't run away (not I could have. I'm a turtle after all!) and then I go home and have a piece of garlic bread.
Well, there they are! I hope you enjoy reading those! :) Oh, and Eldarwen is having a AWESOME giveaway if you enter her Blog Party! So head on over there to check it out!
