I Don't Know Why I Swallowed That Fly.

Or why I insist on NOT doing the things I SHOULD do when I CAN do them, and instead to the things I should NOT do when I SHOULD be doing something ELSE> Got this from Kimber too. :)

1. Spell your first name backwards - erialC

2. Story behind your name- My mom has a knack for names. Claire is the name of one of her "littler sisters" in nursing school who was, according to my mom, one of the most wonderful people she ever knew. Claire died tragically at a young age, and my mom named my Claire in a way to honor what a wonderful person she is. Can't wait to meet her.

3. How old are you - 21

4. where do you live - New York City about 9 months out of the year, but let's not talk about this year, it's been an odd one!

d e s c r i b e y o u r

5. Wallet - It's this hideous pink brick of a thing that I loath but have been trying to replace for about a year and can't find an appropriate replacement for that I like.

7. Toothbrush - Oh don't get me started. The Oral-B Advantage Plus 32 Soft... so amazing. Pair that with some Crest Scope refresh toothpaste and you have a party in your mouth better than your first french kiss.

8. Jewelry worn- regularly? One plain ol' white gold ring on my left ring finger. Ain't married neither. I like to keep it simple, y'all (actually I really like jewelry and wish I was cool enough to wear it all the time, or maybe just that I wasn't so absent minded and actually put it ON from time to time...).

9. Room color - white white white. Thank you NYU. But I do have a charming gray table runner accenting the space above my bed. I should go in to internior design.

10. Pillow cover - This fantastic dark blue pillow case that I love- I have really quite impeccable bedding choice, if I do say so myself. Ask anyone, they'll tell you straight up. You want to sleep in my bed, and I mean that in the least trashy way possible.

11. Favorite Jeans - I like my Lucky's, but they're fading. It's time to anti-up and get some new ones. I do like the new BR ones, but they aren't as much confortable as they are... cool? I dunno.

12. Computer - The ever impressive and always faithful though sometimes falty Apple iBook, 2003. I should name him!

13. Sunglasses - If I was a real woman I'd say Sunclouds. Alas, those have been beaten by time and pressure, and so now they are some $10 ho-bag Aldo sunglasses that I'm sure I'll never lose or break becaue they are cheap and ugly.

14. Favorite shirt - Oh, tough one. I really love my Charlotte t-shirts from ol' Urban Outfitters, but I'm also a fan of my H&M long sleeved shirts that are real soft and long. There's a vivid description for you.. hehe.

15. Cologne/Perfume - Yes. Good. I like cologne. And I like perfume, don't pour it on though, you know? I wear Happy by Clinique (i know, since like 7th grade, but what can I say, I like it, though it dates me back to before puberty), and then attraction by Lancome which I enjoy, but sounds cheesy to actually write. No I did NOT buy that in hopes of becoming more... attractive? It was a gift, I SWEAR! I feel it is time for a new kind though... any suggestions? I can't do real flowery, or real fruity, or real... anything. It goes straight through my eyes right to my drain like an electric drill... or to say it plainly, smells can give me headaches right quick if they're not ... good.

16. CD in stereo right now - No stereo or CD.

17. Piercings - 3, heh!

18. What are you wearing now? Oh, that sounds so sexy, but you're not fooling me! I'm wearing a long-sleeved tan t-shirt with a periwinkle sweater over it, then long black dress pants, some socks, and then the gold shoes that men hate. Damn, both of my interviewers were men! SNAP.

19. What do you wish you already have done - I liked Kimber's answer: finish grad school. But i'm going to say, because I dont' want to get too ahead of myself, found an apartment to live in next year (and owned it- hehe, yeah!)

20. Wanting - What does that even mean?

21. What will you be doing for the remainder of the day? Hopefully I'll do SOMETHING productive when I finish this, like read my Bible and then some homework, then meet E for dinner at Banal (I think?) at 6, then a show at 8, and then home for some schleep.

22. If you could get away with it and murder anyone, who would it be? Aw, come on, what a lame question. Here's a better one- if you could have, would you have murdered Hitler? Answer that one in the comments.

23. Person you wish you could see right now? I'll give you one guess. Actually know that I'll see that guy in 2 weeks (!) I'll say my big bro Ian, cause I actually do kind of like him, and he's in short supply these days!

24. Some of your favorite movies - hmm. Well Braveheart tops this list every time. Then I'm going to say Something's Gotta Give, then prolly Gladiator, Anchorman, Love Actually (I like it and you can't stop me!), and really most lame-o romantic comedies, Mystic River (fantastic movie), Lord of the Rings, and I'm sure some more but I'm totally blanking on them... so there's a smattering, a sampler, if you will.

25. Something you're looking forward to in the coming month? Being home, skiing, dancing (did you know we're going to dance? cause we are!), eating, sleeping, not sleeping, talking, not talking, seeing my fam, throwing aimless snowballs with my inept throwing arm, sledding, seeing the lights in Temple Square, having a christmas party, working at the OECC, NOT having homework (!!!), etc.

26. The last thing you ate - Soup!

27. Do you like candles? You know, i really do. I really do. I really do.

28. Do you like incense? Blech, no. It makes me ill, it's like... shot to the heart, and incense, you're to blame!

29. Do you like the taste of blood? Well no, not my own or another person's. But if you really want to get in to it I like steak, and the flavor there is not always just the meat... but I'm gonna say NO cause I hate the whole moo affect, I'm all about Medium or medium well. Sickos.

30. Do you believe in love? indeed I do.

31. Do you believe in soul mates? ehh... good question. I think that there can be soulmates in some capacity, but I think people get carried away with the idea.

32. Do you believe in love at first sight? No, not really. Maybe because I'm too critical, but really because I think that love has nothing to do with sight.

33. Do you believe in Heaven? You betcha.

34. Do you believe in God? Oh yes.

35. What do you want done with your body when you die? I'll admit I'm not particular, whatever's cheapest for those I leave behind.

36. If you could have any animal for a pet, what animal would you want? Crap, I dunno! that's a hard one! I'd probably have a tiger... like if I could and had the space and could really take care of it and could help it breed other tigers and help it not be endangered or something. Otherwise I think I'd have a ragdoll kitty catty, like Tony Montana- man, what a good guy. that was a dog in a cat's body, I assure you. Any cat that can out drink Gavin is my hero! hehe! Or a Golden Retriever, those guys sure are nice too!

37. What is the longest you've ever stayed up? 2 days straight... maybe three, but I think just two days.

38. Can you eat with chopsticks? Yes and I enjoy it quite a bit!

39. What's your favorite coin? A quarter? Or if we're going international I like the 2 Euro coin.

40. What are some of your favorite candies? Not huge on candy, but I like gummy things (no sick swedish fish though, those are like death... sorry Kim!), reese's pieces, gummy things...

41. What's something that you wish people would understand about you? that I am not as smart or as capable as you think I am.

42. What's something you wish you could understand better? I can't even narrow that down.

43. Who is someone that you really wish was still around? I'm gonna say Brady- cause that guy is just nowhere these days. I'll hunt him down though, don't you worry! mwahahah!

44. Where is your favorite place to shop? uhhh.... am I buying or just looking? Buying: H&M, Banana Republic, Express, Barnes and noble, Whole Foods :) If I'mjust looking.... Anthropologie, Tiffany's, and I'm gonna say Barney's now that E opened up my eyes to that fantastic place!

45. Have any tattoos or piercings? 3 piercings, 1 tattoo.

46. What is your favorite thing to wear? My Old Navy rock-your-world fleece gray bottoms and my Blue NYU sweatshirt, and tennis shoes or slippers. Or my NYU sweatpants, those are friendly too... but those fleece ones..mmm!

47. How much is the most you've ever spent on a single item of clothing? Let's not talk about it.

48. Who is the least fashionable person you know? Honestly? I'm pretty sure I'M the last fashionable person I know! heh!

49. Do you match your belt with your hair color? If my hair was black I would all the time!

50. How many pairs of shoes do you own? uhh....

51. What is the worst trend you see today? Still the boxers showing out of a guy's pants bugs me, and you still see it, but the pants are tight, not baggy now. OR the really really ridiculously short skirts with bare legs when it's freaking 35 degrees out. Are you slutty or just CRAZY?
