In the spotlight - ~*BGT*~

1. First, the question that's on all of our minds--do you like Nina?

2. How confident were you that I would start your spotlight thread after you gave me that goodrep? Use a %.

3. Could you beat Sarah Palin in a deathmatch if your right arm was tied behind your back? Describe how you think that fight would play out.

4. If for some reason your college expelled you and no other four-year university on Earth would take you, what would you do with your life?

5. What's worse--the fact that you haven't read Narnia or that "BlackGirlTennis" was arguably the least imaginative name in MTF history?

6. Why do you like South Park more than Family Guy?

7. If you knew you were going to be stranded on a deserted island for the rest of your life and you could take three MTFers, who (if anyone) would you choose? Bear in mind that you would be taking them away from their loved ones.

8. Which MTFer can you simply not bring yourself to dislike, even though it goes against your better judgment?

9. Who has been the best at answering their spotlight questions?

10. What the hell is with all these spotlight threads? :retard:

I do like Nina. She promised that we'd exchange PM's once in a while to talk about girl stuff since we are around the same age, but she's a bit too busy for me. But she makes me laugh.

2. How confident were you that I would start your spotlight thread after you gave me that goodrep? Use a %.
Ummmm.... like 25%. I didn't even think you see that good rep soon enough.

Quote:
3. Could you beat Sarah Palin in a deathmatch if your right arm was tied behind your back? Describe how you think that fight would play out.
I think so. I've got strong thighs. I'd snap her neck with my quadriceps of steel.

Quote:
4. If for some reason your college expelled you and no other four-year university on Earth would take you, what would you do with your life?
Well, I want to be a wedding planner and that doesn't really need a college degree, but I want a business degree to manage that aspect of it. I don't know. I'd get a personal loan, start a portfolio, get some business cards, buy a few power suits, and go to as many bridal shows as possible. And continue to do research on what's "in" in the bridal industry right now.

5. What's worse--the fact that you haven't read Narnia or that "BlackGirlTennis" was arguably the least imaginative name in MTF history?
I'll let y'all decide. (Yes, I am from the south and say y'all all day)

Quote:
6. Why do you like South Park more than Family Guy?
I've been watching South Park for years now and know all the stories and characters and just find it funny. I saw a few Family Guy clips and didn't really laugh. Besides, the Cartoon Wars SP episode has me sorta biased tbh.

7. If you knew you were going to be stranded on a deserted island for the rest of your life and you could take three MTFers, who (if anyone) would you choose? Bear in mind that you would be taking them away from their loved ones.
Mikey.
Verd/ J'Torian for the and the fangirling
TessGray from the Gasquet forum because she's just fun.

Quote:
8. Which MTFer can you simply not bring yourself to dislike, even though it goes against your better judgment?
GlennMirnyi. He's an asshole, pretentious, pompous, arrogant, HATES Rafa, overly repetitive, thinks he's the shit... but sometimes, he's pretty funny, and I hate that I find him funny.

Quote:
9. Who has been the best at answering their spotlight questions?
TBH, I've only read about 4 of these threads but I really like scoobs' answers. Very honest, open, and real.

You started one.

France. In fact, I plan on spending 5 weeks there next summer. I haven't forgotten Switzerland though. I plan on spending a weekend there. I'm thinking Geneva.

Steak and chocolate cakes.

Britney. We're from the same state

The order of my top 5 faves are in my siggy. Andy followed by Richie, Rafa, Zhenya, then James

Neither. I'm only 19; there are heart throbs closer to my own age.

I don't follow any sport as much as I follow tennis, but I like the Lakers a lot and I followed Alex Despatie (diving) in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics very much/ Still thrilled he won the silver.

Re: In the spotlight - ~*BGT*~

Okay, here are my questions to you:

-Are you proud of being an American?
-What celebrity do you absolutely hate?
-Do you have music you are listening to, but you are too embaressed to admit you like it?
-Do you have a word that you say a million times a day, up to the point where people around you just get annoyed whenever you say it?
-What song is stuck in your head RIGHT NOW?

J'apprends francais depuis j'ai neuf ans.

-thoughts on global warming
Hmmm... never thought about it actually. I'm sure it exists but not sure it is 100% human's fault. I mean, the Earth goes through cycles of hot and cold like the ice ages we've had. Although pollution and the human created holes in he ozone layer probably speed up the process.

Quote:
-do you believe in love at first sight?
No, I believe in lust at first sight though.

Quote:
-tennis tournament you'd love to attend
Any of them. But I enjoyed the DC atmosphere when I went to the US/France quarterfinal, so right now, probably (if it were extremely competitive), the US/Switzerland 1st round tie.

Quote:
-favourite city in the US
Never gone to any of the big cities (LA, New York, Miami, Chicago). Spent a weekend in Orlando and it was pretty fun. I liked Washington DC as well. So I would say New Orleans. Love the museums and history of the city, the shopping, the food. I live just an hour from there. And no.... I don't partake in the nightlife. I already know I'd be the designated driver for my friends. Besides, there's more to New Orleans than partying and Mardi Gras. Audubon Park is beautiful.

I am proud that I live in a mostly safe country, that we were able to elect a non-traditional President, and that we are so diverse. I have been friends with black, white, multiracial, biracial kids. People with Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Indian, Bangladeshi, Belgian, Iranian, German, Italian and Jewish heritage.

I am not proud of the sterotype that many of our young people live p to when they go abroad. The "stupid, arrogant American" who is loud and rude and does nothing but party when they should be appreciating where they are. I will try my hardest to present a positive image of young America when I go to Paris next summer.

Quote:
-What celebrity do you absolutely hate?
Sharapova... no one compares to her at all. I don't even like typing her name tbh.

Quote:
-Do you have music you are listening to, but you are too embaressed to admit you like it?
I've already admitted my life long love for the Backstreet Boys -- not sure it gets worse than that. But, I really like Alvin and the Chipmunks and have memorized several songs from the the VeggieTales and Thomas the Tank Engine cartoons.

Quote:
-Do you have a word that you say a million times a day, up to the point where people around you just get annoyed whenever you say it?
Nothing that people call me out on, but I notice that I say "dude" a lot. Like, I was trying to use my remote control last night and it wasn't working so I said, "Dude, what's going on here?" I call inanimate objects dude. And like most young Americans, I say "like" a lot.... even type it here often.

Quote:
-What song is stuck in your head RIGHT NOW?
Don't Judge a Book by its Cover from Thomas the Tank Engine (mainly because you had just asked about what embarassing stuff I listened to. It's a cute song though.

Hate to be a kill-joy but I don't celebrate Christmas. So I'll spend the day how I usually do. Enjoying that nothing is open except Waffle House and sleeping in.

Quote:
-What has been the best day of your year?
When I met the entire French DC team and got autographs and pictures with them. C'etait parfait.

Quote:
-Do you ever get the feeling "life is so lovely " ?
I get that feeling when I watch Richard. I don't know, I just love his game. Like the first set if his Nadal match in Toronto was exhilarating and the first 2.5 sets against Murray were awesome, but his level never last a whole match.

But, I could use more of that in real life?

Quote:
-Have you ever chased an ice cream truck when you were little?
No, I was lucky as the ice cream truck passed right in front of my house. I'd run outside and wait for it to come when I heard the music and my mom would gather the money.

Quote:
-And who do you think is gonna win the AO?

Roddick df Gasquet in the final but Richie df Murray in the Wimbledon final for ultimate revenge.
