Megan tagged me! :D Go follow her blog, she's fooled me into thinking she's cool for way too long for it to be a lie.

Stay for the Gif parades

1.What's your favorite song?
No. I can't possibly answer this. I'm a singer, and I prefer songs that I can sing to. BUT a few of my favourites are: Strange face of love by Tito and Tarantula, Stuck in the middle with you, by Stealer's wheel, and I also love Superbad by James Brown.

2.How many times did you fail your driver's license test?
Never. I haven't taken it. I only got my learner's a couple years ago. I never needed it! :D

3.Who's your celebrity crush?
Hmm. I have a few. Esthero, Angelina Jolie, Timothy Olyphant, Mila Kunis.

4.What is the most disgusting word you can think of?
Smear. It immediately brings to mind, 'Feces.' Ew.

5.Don't you think Tombstone is the best movie of all time?
No. But I don't have a solid fave, I have a few. Time Bandits, The Labyrinth, Dirty Dancing, The Princess Bride. Monty Python's the meaning of life.

6.If you had to eat one food every day for a year, what would it be?
My mum's homemade Ham and Cheese Turnovers.

7.What are your top 3 favorite books?
Fuck. Okay, favourite is Les Miserables by Victor Hugo. Then it falls to shit. Cold comfort farm by Stella Gibbons. Alice in Wonderland and Through the looking glass - the version with Tenniel's original illustrations. Stupid and contagious by Caprice Crane is awesome. The stupidest angel by Christopher Moore.

I'm a book slut. Let's just say that there will always be a new favourite added to the list. It's about the right book finding me at the right time, and taking me away.

8.Have you ever met anyone in real life that you originally met on Twitter?
Nope, but my husband and I met in a guitar player's group on Myspace. 3 years and international immigration later, we're still here.

9.What was your first job?
Holding the flashlight for my dad. :D

10.Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich- do you put pb on one slice of bread, jelly on the other, and then marry the two? Or do you put pb on one slice of bread, spread jelly on top of the pb, and put another slice of bread on top? (My grandfather has a VERY SOLID opinion on this subject.)
No. butter both sides. PB on one piece, Jam on the other. You have to eat the PB on the bottom. It tastes different, and helps the jam from sogging into the bread. But it should be toasted.

11.Name one thing that majorly creeps you out.
Ants. Or parrots. No, really.
I made a vid

And now... a sloth scratching it's ass.

I had no idea there would be such a demand for this picture.

I just knew when I saw it happening that I had to capture it on film.

I actually snatched the camera from my husband's grasp.

I give you, 'Sloth Scratching it's Ass.'

In case you're wondering, a sloth scratches it's ass V-E-R-Y slowly.
