The "3 Things" Quiz

Has anyone seen the movie "Three Kings"? Great movie...

I was having a hard time writing a blog today, so I'm taking Kacy up on her invitation.

3 names you go by:
1. Carabeener
2. Carrie Antwerp (my fave)
3. Ceeb

3 screen names you have:
1. Is this like where you make an identity out of your pet’s name and then the street on which you live? In that case I would be Daisy Hatteras, Solveig Canterbury, or Fiona 620 North
2. Rhodesbud
3. cao5

3 things you like about yourself:
1. I can see amazing potential in other peoples’ garbage, this is why I fill my house with crap from DI instead of buying nice things that will last
2. I personify inanimate objects (like the time I slept with a toy AT-AT in my bed for months because I felt sorry for it – yes an AT-AT is the walking transport from “Empire Strikes Back”)3. my teeth – they are big enough

3 things you hate/dislike about yourself:
1. I buy garbage from DI
2. I personify inanimate objects so it’s hard to throw crap away
3. my virus – technically it’s not me but it’s IN me – it makes me sickly (cough cough “I think I’ve got the black lung..”)

3 parts of your heritage:
1. Swedish (major part that eclipses other parts)
2. British (we still eat the food – oh, don’t pooh pooh it until you’ve had my triffle!)
3. gypsy – that’s what makes me so firey and unpredictable…and really good at the fiddle and belly dancing…

3 things that scare you:
1. Vomit (it’s been 15 years, 6 months, and 5 days since the last spew)
2. Spiders riding sharks in a tornado or sharks vomiting spiders in a tornado – eew!
3. that fire thing from the first Lord of the Rings – holy cow! That thing tapped some secret suppressed something! I had a mini panic attack the first time I saw it…It must have been something I experienced on our family vacation we took to Hell when I was 13.

3 of your everyday essentials:
1. Dr. Pepper Lip Smackers
2. Moisturizer with SPF 15
3. Todd

3 things you're wearing right now:

2. The hot pink silk dress with the plunging neck line and brooch at the waist from the “BR”
3. The Manolos that were ½ off with the huge jewel on the toe strap

3 of your favorite bands/artists (today):
1. Muse – I’m so attracted to heroine chic – skinny guys in pin-stripes who rock on the piano (sigh)
2. Beyonce – guilty pleasure
3. Alexander Calder – very into mobiles right now

3 of your favorite songs at present:
1. “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” – always a fave, one of the ONLY songs I know all the words to
2. Anything by They Might Be Giants (I just downloaded everything onto my iPod and I’m reliving junior high..but maybe I should have said that in the last question)
3. “Ring of Fire” – Johnny Cash – with all this talk of tsunamis and volcanoes I seriously can’t stop singing it

Can I borrow that T-shirt you got "I survived my family's vacation to Hell"?

Alice said...

Are you REALLY wearing Monolo's? AND the Marc Jacobs jacket...

Did you plan your outfit for the quiz?

I love it, just love it... Can I call you Carrie Bradshaw?

Suzie Petunia said...

Was I with the family for the vacation to hell? Or, no...wait...I probably made it a personal hell just for you. Sorry 'bout all that fighting back in the day. I don't think I've ever apologized.

I'll take a stab at the quiz at my blog. Won't be nearly as entertaining as yours!

Carrie Ann said...

No need to apologize, Suzie. I torture myself enough about that already. As I always say, "Let bygones be bygones..." There are cosmic reasons why you are the middle child even if we made it super hard on you...

Rebecca, I ALMOST bought the Manolos because they WERE 1/2 off making them only $495. And I really WOULD buy the Marc Jacobs if there were somewhere in Utah I could wear it besides Macys the discount grocery store... I swear I would. I live in a fantasy world.

Carly said...

Know why I love your blog? Johnny Cash, Lord of the Rings, and Zoolander references intertwined with a stunning array of fashion sense and comedy. I think I love you.

Amy Lynn said...

I learned so much about you! I think I love you too...but I'm not hip enough to understand the cool fashion references. If it isn't from Old Navy or Target, I'm out.
