And apparently there was a baby! (Of course Sara’s more upset about missing the baby than the friendship :P).
But anyway, once I actually got to work and got most of it figured out, it wasn’t so bad. So I’m going to try not to let that happen again!
Gosh, one week into the school year and I’ve already suffered a minor meltdown…
So! This week’s topic is Question Tuesday! Since the Phantom voted me favorite last week :) So here we go!
If you had to change your first name, would you add an H to Sara and still be a Sarah, or would you pick an entirely different name?
I think I’d just pick a whole new name. I just don’t think I could make the Sara to Sarah transition. Plus I could pick a cool new name. Not sure what it’d be though. I’d have to think on it.
How many pictures of cats/representations of cats do you have out in plain sight in your room? (I have 52. Beat that.)
Umm, 4 stuffed animals, 2 drawn representations, and… Reni. So it looks like I’m not quite as crazy obsessive as you. Oh, darn…
Did you ever watch Serenity? Cause I feel like you still haven’t watched Serenity…
I… will watch it, you know, eventually. I’ve just been too busy lately with… school and… YouTube…
If you had to be a plant, what kind of plant would you be?
I’d be… ooh, I’d be a willow tree! Cause they’re pretty, and I like trees :)
Umm… Dan and Phil? (Note this is a bromance, not… slash fiction, or whatever it’s called…)
There’s probably a better (and less indicative of the YouTube obsession I seem to have caught from Jill) answer, I’m just not entirely sure what counts as a bromance. Like, I think Sam and Frodo are one, right? But they aren’t interesting enough to be my favorite. Ooh! What about Pippin and Merry? Are they a bromance? Cause, you know, one of them being my future husband and all, I think that’s a pretty good choice…
What’s your opinion on this thing I found on tumblr: http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m9ugp0Pm7u1qz4d4bo1_500.jpg
What’s your favorite song from Dr. Horrible?
Probably either "My Eyes" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQyNN2SfPwQ) or "Slipping" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RidsxnnVTR4). I love the way the two voice parts interact in "My Eyes," and I just really love 'Slipping"!
What’s your favorite song from Phantom of the Opera?
Grrrrrrr. "Down Once More" maybe? Really just the whole ending is amazing and all the feels and just aaaahhhh!!!
What’s your favorite song from Les Miserables?
I…I don’t know the songs from Les Miserables.
Who’s your favorite character from Les Miserables?
Ummm, the brunette one? Who pretends to be a guy and gets shot?
Who’s your favorite character from Lizzie Bennet Diaries?
Which Lizzie (or Lydia, or Maria Lu) episode has been your favorite so far?
Quite possibly the most recent one- especially the last 10 seconds or so with Darcy. :D:D:D:D AND THE SHOULDER TOUCH!!!!!
Do you like favorites questions? (If not…oops. Too bad.)
Pretty sure you already knew that the answer to that was a negative and are just intentionally being cruel to me…
What do you think is going to happen to Lydia (provided we haven’t found out already by the time you answer this)?
Bad things… have you seen today’s video? I just want her to know what he’s really up to! WHY AREN’T YOU SEEING THIS JANE AND LIZZIE?!?!?! GO HELP YOUR BABY SISTER!!!!!!
What’s your favorite Pride and Prejudice adaptation?
Probably LBD. It’s just so made of awesome!
What classic book would you want Hank Green and etc. to adapt to a web series next if they do another one?
I’m not sure. Another Jane Austen, maybe? I really like how they have several different channels incorporated into it, so I’d hope they’d do that again, though maybe with more main characters? So instead of just having Lizzie’s main channel and several supporting channels, have several more main channels going at once. I think it’d be especially funny if they didn’t know about each other’s vlogs at first. I just think that would be really amusing :) Like, I don't remember exactly how Sense and Sensibility went but what if Elinor and Edward were making their own separate videos before they met, and then they meet and still don't know about them and that would be cool and stuff.
What is your opinion on the following quote? “Man is indestructible because of his simple will to freedom.” Bonus points if you know who said it!
I don’t know who said it, and I really don’t get it or feel like taking the time to look it up…
Is there any thing or entity or idea that you actually hate? Not just dislike. I mean hate.
Not that I can think of?
Speaking of which, how strongly would you say you experience emotions?
About average, I guess? More so for inconsequential things. Like LBD, for example :)
What kind of things make you feel good about humanity/the world?
Babies and children and cute things and seeing people be super nice.
Having watched the first episodes of both Farscape and Downton Abbey, which would you prefer to continue if you HAD to watch one of them?
Probably Farscape. Historical stuff tends not to interest me so much.
What do you mean Downton Abbey is too modern…?
I don’t know things, ok! You guys just try to make me justify my dislikes and so I say stuff that sounds like stuff but isn’t really stuff! Can’t I just dislike things in peace?
Is life a lie?
You’re a lie.
Are you opposed to books where sad things happen, or is it just TV and movies?
I’m not opposed to things where sad things happen- Phantom of the Opera is amazing, and lots of sad things are amazing, it just has to be done right. And anyway, I am human and therefore entirely allowed to be inconsistent for no good reason!
Have you ever seen Titanic? If so, what’s your opinion of the movie?
Yeah. It was fine.
Would you let me dress you up as Audrey Hepburn for Halloween this year?
Lol, sure :P
What song do you see as being our theme song during the road trip?
Ummmmmm… Kiss the girl? It’s not really road trip related, but I like it, and most of us know all the words, and it’s fun to sing/yell it together, and we are going to VidCon after all.
How do naps lure us in so easily?
I’m not really much for naps. Mostly they just make me feel groggy and generally worse than if I’d just toughed it out and maybe gone to bed early or something. Plus if I leave my contacts in, then my eyes are all red when I wake up. And it's not like I'm going to take them out just to take a nap.
If you were Ursula, whose voice would you steal?
Well, I wouldn’t, because that’s mean, but I do really like Amy Adams’s voice. She sings pretty :)
Can someone be loyal to a fault?
Sure! If you’re too loyal to one person or thing, then that can interfere with your judgment and make you go along with something even though you would otherwise think it was a bad idea. It can also be annoying to the person to whom you are loyal, since you may, in your loyalty, decide not to mention their faults, and when said faults are brought to their attention in another manner, they will be annoyed that you didn’t bring it up to them and save them the embarrassment/misery.
Also, Sara, would you let me dress you up as Helena Bonham Carter…possibly in one of her weird movie costumes?
She would probably be more Halloween-themed than Audrey Hepburn, but I think I’ve had my hair crimped for too many past Halloweens.
If a guy was on his deathbed and he was in love with you, would you marry him to satisfy his dying wish, even if you weren’t in love with him?
I don’t know that that would be a good idea. That’s a pretty big lie to go through with, even if the guy is dying. And surely he would know that I didn’t love him back? That just wouldn’t be any good at all.
Also Sara, would you let me dress you up as both Helena Bonham Carter and Audrey Hepburn at the same time for Halloween…split down the middle?
What have I done? Become a thief in the night? Become a dog on the run? Have I fallen so far, and is the hour so late, that nothing remains but the cry of my hate?
Aww, don’t be so pessimistic- it’ll get better!
P.S.- I think Javert has spotted you- you may wanna run… or, you know, sing a duet. Whichever suits your fancy :)
Tell me, princess, when did you last let your heart decide?
Awwww, Aladdin <3
The first question! The question that must never be answered, hidden in plain sight. Doctor who?
I would very much like to know. But I also don’t really want “silence to fall,” so I guess I can be ok without it.
Will you join in our crusade? Who will be strong and stand with me? Beyond the barricade, is there a world you long to see?
What the weird?
We are a pretty weird bunch, aren’t we?
Are you interested in a vocal tutor?
I think I’m a little too busy for that at the moment, but thanks for the offer :)
The Empty Child:
Are you my mummy?
I’m afraid not. Sorry :/
Are you my mother?
Again, no. But I’ll adopt you if you can’t find her!
Sam I Am:
Do you like green eggs and ham?
Eggs are fine, but I’m not much of a ham person.
So those are all the questions! I choose Rachael to win, because her loyal question reminded me of those “too much” questions, which are fun, and because she isn't mean :) Have a good week, everybody!
P.S. And I presume she’ll be answering those next Wednesday, not tomorrow, cause that’s really soon. Kbai!
