What’s your favorite small animal?
Hamster. Specifically, Izzie. (Assuming you weren’t including cats in the “small animal” category?)
If you were a cat, what would you look like? What kind of markings/fur would you have?
I was just going to be obvious and say I’d be brown… but then I thought about it, and you don’t really see that many brown cats. And I don’t really want to be brown. I think I’d rather be light gray on top with white belly fur. And bright green eyes. Kind of like a certain YouTuber whose videos I may or may not have been marathoning recently… And I’d be super fluffy. Like one of these kittens!
If the rest of us bloggers were small animals, what would you imagine us as?
Amy- Red panda (pandas don’t really count as “small”)
Rachael- A cute little lizard (since she doesn’t like rodents)
Anna Beth- kitten (can she really be anything else? :P)
Jill- turtle (a ninja turtle… get it?
Sanaa- Garter snake
Would you rather live in a world with no snow or no chocolate?
GASP!!! Such worlds would be so lacking :/ But I guess I’d rather have snow than chocolate. Assuming we could actually get some snow…
Have you heard about NASA’s top secret discovery?- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTQyIIBdvfs&feature=channel&list=UL–What do you think it is?
Well now I have. And I have no idea. Water? Civilization? A clown? It could be anything.
What do you think of the apparent prominence of females in your chosen career? (as contrasted with the lack of women in a lot of other careers). And am I even right in saying there is a significant amount more women than men in [elementary] education? (are they hiding somewhere?)
Yeah, for the most part there are mostly females in the elementary education field. It’s probably a result of proliferating stereotypes- a lot of things to do with young children tend to be assumed to be more female jobs, just like engineering and science-y careers tend to be viewed as male jobs. Parents, too, are often less comfortable leaving their child with a man than a woman, though I think that has more relevance to childcare and babysitting than teaching.
Can you have too many random acts of kindness?
Ever heard the phrase “kill ‘em with kindness”?
Really, though, if you’re too trusting and take an act of kindness too far, it can be harmful to you, which would make it too much. (Hey, let me carry your bags to the car for you. *kidnapped*)
What do you want for Christmas?
Peace and goodwill on earth
If Benedict Cumberbatch is an otter and Martin Freeman is made of kittens, what does that make Tennant?
A…. guinea pig…
If you could name a town anything you wanted, what would you name it? If you are feeling particularly uncreative, you may choose from bugtussle, mooslick, monkeyspit, catbutt, or cowtoyota.
I’m gonna have to go with Bugtussle.
“Where you from?”
“Oh, you know, Bugtussle, Connecticut.”
“Really? Nice place.”
Can you love children too much?
… I think you can go to jail for it, actually…
How did Taco Tuesday first come into being?
Umm. We were in high school. And we were hungry. Hungry for tacos. So we ate tacos. On a Tuesday. Because it was alliterative. And Sanaa and Sam had something to do with it. Or so they say.
