How Well Do You Know Me???

So there is this quiz thing going around on Facebook called "How Well Do You Know ____?" and I made one. I wasn't surprised that Zac did the best of everyone and that not many people scored above 50% (especially because I seem to be getting around 40% on most other people's), but I was a bit surprised by some of the obviously wrong answers. So I thought maybe I would take the time to answer a few questions and provide an explanation for each. I know this is usually all about Logan, but now you get a little taste of Sarah, too.

1) What is my middle name?
a) Kay
b) Kay Marie
c) Marie
d) Thomas (my maiden name)

Answer: c. Answers to this one were all over the board. Fact: my first name is Sarah Kay. Like Mary Beth or Maryanne. One name. The story (as I've been told) is that my mom liked Kay because of her good friend with the same name. And I guess my dad liked Sarah. So they compromised and combined them. I really don't know where the Marie came from, other than it's the most generic middle name in all world history.

2) My guilty pleasure is...
a) Ice cream
b) Chocolate
c) Primetime TV
d) Bubble baths

Answer: c. This one is more of a "process of elimination" question. I don't like ice cream for a few reasons. 1. I worked at an ice cream shop for 2 summers and it kind of killed any taste for ice cream I had. 2. It's cold and I have sensitive teeth (though I LOVE milkshakes...when you use a straw it doesn't touch them). And 3. I have lactose issues so ice cream usually does a number on my digestive tract.

Next, I just don't like chocolate. In any form. Except white chocolate which, I have been told by many a chocolate enthusiast, is not actually chocolate.

Lastly, bubble baths gross me out. Something about sitting in stagnant, hot water that can rapidly become tepid, surrounded by dirt and dead skin is just yucky to me. Hot tubs I can handle. Baths are just ookie.

3) My due date is the same day as...
a) Logan's birthday
b) Zac's birthday
c) Logan's original due date
d) Independence Day

Answer: b. Which is July 18th. 40 days from now!

4) My favorite book in the "Twilight" series was...
a) "Twilight"
b) "New Moon"
c) "Eclipse"
d) "Breaking Dawn"

Answer: b. Anyone who chose d is a moron. "Twilight" was ok...but broke a lot of conventional rules of YA literature and didn't do a good job when actually breaking them. And "Eclipse" was fine. Nothing really wrong with it, but nothing outstanding. So "New Moon" was my favorite because of the emotional attachment I had to Bella (which I thought was lacking in the other 3 books). And they go to Italy. Sweet.

5) What is my degree in?
a) English Teaching
b) Comparative Literature
c) English Literature
d) English

Answer: d. I'm pretty sure this was the most widely-missed question. It was just English. Nothing fancy about it. I read, I wrote, I graduated. And no, I don't know what I'm planning on doing with an English degree, other than say "I have a BA in English."

So...more to come later...

I didn't take the quiz, but I think I only would've gotten the last one right. Go me! And go you, of course, for graduating!

I knew there was a good reason why we were friends. I was a plain old English major myself. I loved it. It was awesome. I've always been a literature, grammar, language NERD. So why would I pick plain old English (which as you know you can't do a darn thing with) and not English teaching? There's no pre-major application process. You walk in the office and fill out a form and boom, you're in the program. Lazy? You betta believe it! :)
