My Phone Is Out Of Storage Right Before Christmas... AMA

  1. What's the last screenshot you took?
    Suggested by   @lexie_elyse
  2. The one I just sent you of my angel niece being sweet.
    So she's clearly been kidnapped. Thanks @lexie_elyse
  3. Should I get bangs?
    Suggested by   @lexie_elyse
  4. @lexie_elyse long bangs are the only way to get bangs. Invest in some cute bendy clips for days when you want to rock more forehead. But yes. You have my permission.
  5. What's the first thing you'll start working on for 2017?
    Suggested by   @Jaycer17
  6. @Jaycer17 the very first thing is replenishing my dwindling nest egg of investment accounts. The Christmas bonus is going right in there to grow as be so boring.
  7. @rellimt I probably should! I have pics from 2011 and I'm turning into an electronic hoarder.
  8. What's the best movie you've seen this year?
    Suggested by   @lexie_elyse
  9. @lexie_elyse you know how much I love movies, so I will say the best movie I saw this year is the Television program This Is Us. Because my brain can watch 10 hours of that, but can't handle any movies.
    However, I found it hilarious that the night I went ALONE to watch How To Be Single just happened to be Valentines Day. Total accident, but lots of people felt bad for me. Decent film
  10. Should I keep the beard?
    Suggested by   @Jaycer17
  11. @Jaycer17 beards are good for 2 things, one is so people know you aren't some punk kid; and two, so people can tell men from women. I say keep it!
  12. What's the last thing you laughed at?
    Suggested by   @lexie_elyse
  13. @lexie_elyse probably something you said. I didn't adopt a sister so I could laugh less, ya know.
    But the marble in the million boxes of @marymurphy's Secret Santa gift, that is still making me laugh today.
  14. I'm on my way to your place; I'm hungry and thirsty. What would we eat and drink???
    Suggested by   @Diplomatic_diva
  15. @Diplomatic_diva you are finally coming over? I need to vacuum! I have like 14 hours to clean right?! My house has plenty of options, we have ice water, and tap water. For food I have wonder bread, and applesauce because I eat like I live in a hospital.
    So come on!
  16. What's your favorite color? What's your favorite emoji?
    Suggested by   @lexie_elyse
  17. Favorite color is yellow!!!! Loud and proud!!! Favorite emoji is 😉 because I make the face every time I use it.
  18. What are your favorite tv shows on Netflix?
    Suggested by   @lexie_elyse
  19. @lexie_elyse I like Kimmy Schmidt because she likes Olive Garden and is also 30 and stuck in the 90s. She's basically sexless and very smiley. So we'd get along.
    But I usually just do the cycle of The Office, Arrested Development, Parks (Tommys Place), 30 Rock, New Girl, Jane the Virgin and Crazy Ex Gf
  20. Where would you like to travel?
    Suggested by   @lexie_elyse
  21. @lexie_elyse Muncie, IN
  22. Are you wearing any jewelry right now? If so, what? Include pics
    Suggested by   @lexie_elyse
  23. @lexie_elyse I am wearing my standard invisible jewelry.
  24. @lexie_elyse here's my designer invisible necklace.
  25. @lexie_elyse and of course my one of a kind, seamless, view-less dangle earrings.
  26. I'm getting another piercing in my ear for Christmas. Where should it be?
    Suggested by   @lexie_elyse
  27. @lexie_elyse are you set on ear? If so, do the kind that can hold a chain from one earlobe to the other. Those are very hip.
    Or do the eyebrow. Because the 90s are back and Lenny Kravitz is still sexy.
  28. Use Flickr to back up all your pictures
    Suggested by   @audreypalumbo
  29. @audreypalumbo I think my spirit animal is a duck-billed platypus because I am just a huge mix of things turned into something resembling a human. Thanks for your question 🙊🙊
    Sorry, tried to follow the Q&A Rules. Looking into Flickr.
  30. What's your favorite reading spot?
    Suggested by   @dreadpiratemama
  31. @dreadpiratemama I used to love reading on my oversized chair until I adopted Twiggy. She is a paper eater. So now I do most of my reading in the tub. I have a tray for the tub and she hates baths, so it's the puppy free zone.
  32. Have you watched the British version of The Office? If so, which do you prefer? If not, why not?
    3 questions in 1!
    Suggested by   @MichaelRose
  33. @MichaelRose I own both. I really love the UK version, it's so much more organic. It's better at distracting me. But when I want a lot of episodes I'm very grateful we have the 9 seasons of the US Office.
    Don't tell John Kransinski, but I like Tim more than Jim.
  34. Puppy: crate train or no?
    Suggested by   @pathb
  35. @pathb since I live in an apartment I am very grateful the rescue I adopted my puppy from had crate trained her. Also, I'm the WORST pushover and have no idea how I would have trained her to stay in a crate.
    She sleeps in my GD bed! But when she stays with my mom, she is totally chill sleeping in the crate. Because I am being played!
  36. Favorite 90s tv show?
    Suggested by   @hillary79
  37. @hillary79 I have a lot, it used to be Full House, but I never get a chance to really miss it. So I'm going to say Family Matters.
    Anything on TGIF or Snick was my life. TV was my best friend then and now. All That, Clarissa Explains it All, Alex Mack, Teen Angel
  38. Favorite 90s band/musician/group?
    Suggested by   @hillary79
  39. @hillary79 I loved Hansen, but when I think about the movie Clueless, I want my Cranberries CD! Or the swing music that used to be so cool in 96.
    Big Bad Voodoo Daddies, was it?
  40. 90s style we should bring back?
    Suggested by   @hillary79
  41. @hillary79 I'm not a huge fan of falling, so let's bring back chunky platforms. Even flip flops used to have 4 inches of styrofoam on them. Oh my goodness I lived in flares and bellbottoms. Bring them back!
  42. How close is the nearest Starbucks to where you currently are?
    Please express the distance in meters.
    Suggested by   @andersun
  43. @andersun Finally someone asked exactly what I was hoping to answer! I am 1609.34 meters from the 'bucks in several directions.
    Dallas folks are a thirsty crowd! In more ways than one!
  44. Which is tastier: ice water or tap water?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  45. @andersun no question! In my world, tap water is King. Ice water is only in my house if my parents visit, and so they stop thinking I'm a homeless.
  46. Should I get bangs?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  47. @andersun as long as you cut them long enough to clip back...
  48. Not counting the ice water, what about your place makes your folks think you're homeless?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  49. @andersun I am not the type of person who really ever "moves in" a place. My belongings are in boxes, and my style aesthetic is "unoccupied home". Plus I only have like 3 cups.
  50. Are you back on twitter now?
    Suggested by   @jessilee23
  51. @jessilee23 no, and the only reason I will come back is for you, when the new episodes begin in January.
  52. Who would you rather share an Uber with: Abraham Lincoln or Barack Obama?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  53. @andersun I'm sorry to everyone who disagrees, but Obama or bust. I pick Obama over everyone. Alive or dead. Including Cleopatra and Nicole Richie.
    Not Jesus though. But let's not bring Jesus into this!
  54. I heard 'Zombie' by the Cranberries on the radio this morning. Would you rather have your coworker Matt be replaced by a zombie, a vampire or a Hobbit from the Shire?
    Follow up: What person from a Cranberries song would you prefer to replace Matt?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  55. @andersun I feel like vampires are sexist. Girls obviously get killed more than guys. Zombies are so scary. So I'll take Hobbit for 800 Alex.
    I'm sorry, I mean "What is turn Matt into a Hobbit?"
  56. What would be some of the chapter titles were @lexie_elyse to write a book about you?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  57. @andersun I think @lexie_elyse will agree: My Big Black Sister, The Woman Who Made Me Love Tea, Ebony and Ivory, Wet Blankets Can Have Dry Skin, From Maryland to Texas, Good Morning Dallas, My Sister Married Al Roker, Jalapenos Aren't Spicy, Santa Baby
  58. Napoleon Dynamite or Kip Dynamite?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  59. @andersun my lips currently hurt real bad. Does that answer your question?
  60. Why is your phone out of storage right before Christmas?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  61. @andersun I just can't figure it out. I deleted so many photos and have zero videos and saved podcasts!
  62. Rank them by how much you use them: Hand shake, fist bump, high five.
    Suggested by   @NumbahTwo
  63. Terrorist fist jab, hand shake (mine is retched, like a dead fish, I remember to be better AFTER it's over each time), then high five. I don't watch enough sports to have many high five opportunities
  64. What is the typical Dallas resident's opinion or feelings about Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby, the Texas Book Depository and the grassy knoll?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  65. @andersun we think Ted Cruz's dad did it
  66. What is the correct collective noun for a resident of Dallas? Dallasan? Dallasite? Dallasian?
    Other?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  67. @andersun no clue. Dallas resident is what they call us on the news.
  68. What did you buy your adorable niece for Christmas??
    Suggested by   @cvlop61
  69. @cvlop61 she's usually not a fan of me at all, but now that she got a phone we text a lot and she told me she loves Ariana Grande.
    So I am loading my old ipod with all the AG (radio edits) music and just a lot of other kid friendly music I already have. My sister got them wireless speakers so they can all 3 get ready to fun music in the morning. She's 11, so I'm positive she wants earbuds in her ears just hiding from humanity.
  70. Favorite snack?
    It's the only question I can ask on AMAs apparently
    Suggested by   @aliciamcelhaney
  71. @aliciamcelhaney it used to be popcorn, but last night I made some of the homestyle microwave popcorn instead of popping it on the stove, and I feel like I ate a cup of preservatives. 🤢
    I used to love that stuff, but it's got to have formaldehyde or something in it. So now my snack is peanut M&Ms. I'm still enjoying my chocolate from @jessilee23 too!
  72. A Venezuelan friend.arrives to your neck of the woods. First place you take him, first "tradition" he's invited to. (This may or may not be hypothetical in the distant future.)
    Suggested by   @Jaycer17
  73. @Jaycer17 first I of course offer tap water. I remind him not to refer to me as a negro just yet.
    No, clearly I call @karlalucia and she tells me what cool people do and we go hang with her and do karaoke or something ridiculous! I don't know any traditions! I'm the worst. I can introduce you to my aunt who is also from Venezuela, and my cousin who is my half Venezuelan twin.
