I'm A Cranky Mess Today AMA

I'm super annoyed and I'm acting like a total crank today. Ask me whatever you want!
  1. Even though you hate tea, there are people in your family who like it, right?
    Suggested by   @Boogie
  2. @Boogie my mom and sister like it. And iced tea runs in my dad's veins. But I don't understand why people willingly drink it.
  3. If you could do anything with no consequences (legal or illegal) to make yourself feel better what would you do?
    Suggested by   @hillary79
  4. @hillary79 probably destroy something with a baseball bat. Like a glass statue or something. But I wouldn't want to clean up the mess after.
  5. What exactly do you have against tea? What did it ever do to you?
    Suggested by   @hillary79
  6. @hillary79 I drank it once and it was awful and people don't believe me. But the tea knows what it did.
  7. What color are your crankypants?
    Suggested by   @jennifergster
  8. @jennifergster blue jeans!
  9. What do you hope Santa will bring you? 🎅🏼
    Suggested by   @jennifergster
  10. @jennifergster I hope Santa brings me some books, some shirts, and some art prints.
  11. What was the last movie you saw in theaters and what did you think of it?
    Suggested by   @sarahmccoy
  12. @sarahmccoy I just saw Manchester By The Sea and I thought it was great! It was really powerful and the characters were very human.
  13. Happy Winter Solstice ❄️!
    What do you do to make yourself not cranky?
    Suggested by   @HikerGirl60
  14. @HikerGirl60 write in my journal, spend some time alone, and look up non-stupid inspirational quotes on the internet.
  15. What glass statue would break best? Like a tall one or a real intricate one?
    Suggested by   @Boogie
  16. @Boogie TALL.
  17. When you see a yellow stop light do you go faster or slow down?
    Suggested by   @Boogie
  18. @Boogie it depends. Usually slow down but sometimes speed up.
  19. Do you have any book recommendations?
    Suggested by   @juliareese
  20. @juliareese ALWAYS. Currently I recommend Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone.
  21. What's the best movie you saw this year?
    Suggested by   @hillary79
  22. @hillary79 that's a tough one! I've seen A LOT of movies this year. Probably The Nice Guys or Manchester By The Sea. Or Spotlight! That was amazing.
  23. What the best/happiest song you can think of to dance to?
    I'm cranky too today. Thinking maybe I should dance it out.
    Suggested by   @DG
  24. @DG LOVE this question. My favorites are More Than A Feeling by Boston and The Obvious Child by Paul Simon.
  25. When you and Ryan Gosling get married, which celeb do I need to marry so you will still hang out with me?
    Suggested by   @Boogie
  26. @Boogie Bradley Cooper
  27. Do you understand why people UNWILLINGLY drink iced tea?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  28. @andersun maybe because they think it's healthy or something? Idk, people are weird.
  29. What's the worst movie you saw this year?
    (And what was its one redeeming factor, if you are forced to be generous?)
    Suggested by   @andersun
  30. @andersun oh man that's a tough one because usually I just shut off movies when I don't like them. I would say Deadpool as the one that I didn't really understand why it was so popular. And I would say its redeeming quality was that it made me laugh sometimes and it had a catchy theme song.
  31. What is the determining factor on whether you slow down or speed up for a yellow light?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  32. @andersun how much time I have (like how long it's been yellow) and how close I am to passing it.
  33. Facebook or Twitter?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  34. @andersun Twitter always.
  35. Who would you rather be trapped on an elevator with: a mime or a ventriloquist?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  36. @andersun a ventriloquist. Mimes are fucking annoying.
  37. What are your favorite methods to making yourself laugh?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  38. @andersun it's pretty easy to make me laugh, so I usually just watch something funny, think of a pun, or think of a funny joke I've heard. Or I go on twitter to read jokes.
  39. What's the view outside the nearest window? Weather?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  40. If you can get past my mom's succulents (she has a problem), you can see this lovely view of my neighbor's house! Oh and it's pretty warm today. Almost 50 degrees!
  41. Who are your favorite celebrity siblings?
    Why?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  42. Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen for life. I grew up watching tapes of their movies.
  43. Where are your favorite places to SCUBA dive?
    And a follow-up: where's your dream SCUBA dive location destination?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  44. @andersun my favorite place is Lake Rawlings in Virginia. It's like a playground for Scuba divers. And my dream location is Belize or Australia!
  45. How far is it from where you currently are to the nearest Starbucks?
    Please share the distance in feet.
    Suggested by   @andersun
  46. @andersun 1.3 miles!
  47. What's your favorite non-stupid inspirational quote at this very second!
    Suggested by   @andersun
  48. @andersun "Let your smile change the world, but don't let the world change your smile."
  49. Dave Chappelle says Bradley Cooper loves black people, so I feel like you may have made a love match. Do you have a pillow you can punch?
    Suggested by   @Boogie
  50. @Boogie YES! It's destiny. And no, punching pillows doesn't make me feel better. I like pillows.
  51. Who is your favorite 19th Century American president?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  52. @andersun I'm a big fan of John Adams because his wife Abigail is amazing.
  53. I'm about to dial in to a work conference call. What sentence do you dare me to work into the conversation?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  54. @andersun oh man. That's a tough one. I'm not witty enough for this challenge. I'm watching the Office so I'll go with the classic "that's what she said."
  55. How many feet is 1.3 miles?
    😬
    Suggested by   @andersun
  56. @andersun 1.3 miles is 6864 feet.
  57. Top three favorite musicians/bands?
    Suggested by   @hillary79
  58. @hillary79 I focus more on songs than the band/musician, and I would probably say Adele is the only one I can firmly name as a favorite.
  59. How did it feel to get an AMA via List Request?
    Suggested by   @andersun
  60. @andersun it felt really good! I have a group chat with @Boogie, @karlalucia, and @hillary79, and I said "I'm a cranky mess AMA" to them, so Boogie requested a list.
  61. How does it feel to be an AMA LR pioneer?
    Will you and @Boogie include it on your resume or profile?
    Suggested by   @BWN_7
  62. @BWN_7 I can't speak for @Boogie, but I will definitely be putting it on my resume.
  63. Do you prefer tap water or bottled water?
    Suggested by   @neorsd
  64. @neorsd Is filtered water an option? I agree tap water tastes weird, but bottled water is SO bad for the environment.
  65. @lexie_elyse Yes, it's an option. 👍
    Suggested by   @neorsd
  66. What do your favorite pair of socks look like?
    Suggested by   @dreadpiratemama
  67. @dreadpiratemama that's a tough one because I LOVE socks. Probably my socks of otters holding hands.
  68. What are you rage snacking on?
    Suggested by   @aliciamcelhaney
  69. @aliciamcelhaney cheesy bread. My kryptonite.
  70. What kind of tea did you try (Hot or iced? Black or green? Sweet or unsweet?), and have you really only ever had any tea of any kind once??
    Sorry but I drink (sweet iced) tea every damn day and am having a hard time with this information. Also I'm late to this party, oops.
    Suggested by   @autumnftw
  71. @autumnftw I think it was hot black tea?
