Liebster Blog- TAG!

JS over at The Joyful Sparrow tagged me with the Liebster Award!  Thank You!

Here are the rules:

1.  Post 11 random  facts about yourself
2.  Answer 11 questions from the blogger who tagged you.
3.  Post 11 questions for the bloggers you tag.
4.  Pass the award onto 11 bloggers (No Tag Backs!)

Alright- So here we go! 

((My 11 Facts))

1.  I was named after the band Asia.  See, down there?  How the "S" looks like a "Z" ?  Yep.  AZIA.

(Insert "Heat of the Moment"joke here)

2.  My favorite food right now are (is?) sweet potatoes.  They are fucking out-of-this-world DELICIOUS.

3.  Whenever I have found myself to be drunk amongst a large crowd of people, I always, for a split second, envision everyone as naked apes-- drinking, dancing, and acting like morons.  It really is an interesting way to perceive the act of drunkenness.

4.  When I was 4 years old, my favorite pizza topping was anchovies.  I have no idea how or why.

5.  I have not only a sister from another mister, but a brother from another mother.  (I know- not that uncommon-- but, admit it-- it just flows off the tongue so nicely.)

6.  If I could look like any celebrity- I'd pick Kristen Stewart.  Shut it.  She has awesome hair and I dig her style.  She's a total babe.

7.  About 7 years ago, Garrett and I went to a Mason Jennings show in St. Cloud.  We arrived at the theater suuuuuuper early.  The only ones there were us, and some dude with shaggy hair.  He was texting on his cell phone just kind of chillin'.  Later on that evening, the concert starts-- long haired dude walks on stage.  At the time, the only photo I had seen of Mason Jennings- he had short hair.  Totally felt like a dumb fuck.  But- a year later-- we ran into him in a hotel parking lot and got to meet him anyway!

8.  Speaking of meeting celebs- Garrett and I have also met Anthony Hopkins (they filmed the assassination scene for the film 'Bobby' at a hotel across the street from my mothers old house in California-- say that 5x fast).  He introduced himself as "Tony" all Italian-like.  We've also met Andrew VanWyngarden from MGMT and Julian Casablancas.

9.  When I was 10 years old, I wrote an Alice In Wonderland-esque story about a boy who follows a squirrel into a tree and ends up discovering this crazy squirrel society.  I sent the story to Disney asking them turn my story into a cartoon.  They did not.  Your bad, Disney, YOUR FREAKING BAD.

10.  I use the words "best friend" interchangeably between like... 5 different people.  You know who you are.

11.  We have an actual VIDEO STORE in our town- and it's awesome, amazing, stupendous, super cool!

((JS's Questions))

1.  What song describes you best?
I Kissed A Girl- Katy Perry
HAHA JK..  Umm... If you would've asked me this about a year and a half ago, I probably would have said You- Atmosphere- now... I have no idea.

2.  What is the best part about where you live?
I love New Ulm.. I think it's the small town charm as lame and generic as that sounds.  There are little Ma&Pa joints- tons of small businesses-- not just the typical Applebees, Target, etc.  It's also the most German town in the state (And home to the largest Oktoberfest celebration in the country) so there are Sausages and Kraut and awesome beer everywhere.

3.  If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
The English Countryside.  I describe it in detail here.

4.  Your perfect day would include...?
Tea with J.K. Rowling, 1 hour back massage from Garrett and Jake Gyllenhaul (shirts off), a personal concert by The Strokes, and sleeping in a huuuuuge comfy bed with Garrett, Abram and Eva (family cuddles!)

5.  What are you looking forward to?
It's Garrett's birthday tomorrow- and I'll finally be able to give him his birthday present.  I'm fucking terrible at surprises-- so naturally, this has sucked.

6.  If money were no obstacle, what would you do with your time?
Write.  Spend time with my kids.  Wait a minute... I just described my life.  AWESOME!  Honestly though- we'd travel.  I can't even say we'd travel "more"- because going to Wisconsin for a weekend at The Dells would be considered travelling at this point.  So, if money were no obstacle- I would write, play with my kids, and see the world.

7.  Your favorite item in your closet is...?
Right now- probably my silk scarf collection. 

8.  In an hour you will be...?
Working on my WIP.  I'd be doing it right now.. but I couldn't work out this thing- so I needed a bit of a mental break.

9.  What countries have you visited, and which was your favorite?
I haven't even been to CANADA.  I did go to a border town in Mexico a few times.  It was sad.  Lots of elderly women and children begging for money.  But, being that it's the only country I've visited- I'll have to go with it.

10.  Where do you see yourself in 20 years?
I can't tell you.  But, trust me-- it will happen.

11.  What are you currently reading?
Just finished 'On The Road' by Jack Kerouac... I haven't picked up anything new (first time I am not reading something in years) because I'm so engrossed in the story I'm writing.

((My 11 Questions))

1.  What was the name of your first pet?  
2.  If you could have dinner and drinks with any living person on the planet, who would it be?
3.  Aliens- Real or Not Real?
4.  You have to sing Karaoke, can't get out of it- HAVE to sing- What song do you pick?
5.  Who is more attractive: Prince William or Prince Harry?
6.  What is your favorite city and why?
7.  What is the meaning of life?
8.  What was your favorite pizza topping when you were 4 years old?
9.  One day, the government decides everyone has to wear jumpsuits.  You can wear either orange or purple-- what do you pick?
10.  Have you ever played "Bloody Mary"?
11.  What is the last movie you saw in the theater?  What kind of snacks did you eat/drink?

((Tag!  You're it!))
NellieVaughn @ Buttons Are Not Currency
Mrs. One Day @ One Day I'm Gonna...

I know- it's not 11.  But... I'm sorry.  I have no excusess.
