C is for celebration.
And speaking of celebrations, Olivia over at Horsefeathers in celebrating over five hundreds followers with an excellent giveaway and blog party. Part of this celebration is to have everyone answer a few questions. Here are my answers:
Favorite season, and why?
I love fall. There are so many reasons why I love fall, so many i dedicated a whole post to one hundred of them! Read it HERE.
How would you describe your personal style?
Like fashion? Well, I'm a flip-flops and converse kind of girl when it comes to shoes. I live in various pairs of jeans picked up from Goodwill, and my tops tend to be cute but not flashy. Goodwill is the amazing store for me. I also seem to have a lot of black, not because I'm goth, but for performance wear norm. I have very little nice stuff that ISN'T black, or that isn't a white top. Hmm....
Jewelry is worn everyday and always consists of one purple pancreatic cancer awareness bracelet, a silver treble clef necklace (or two), and silver treble clef earrings.
What's one weird thing you can do? (The stranger the better!)
Well, this is kinda weird. I like to read lying on my couch, and often I'm listening to a CD or the radio while I do so. When I do this, I hold my book with my hands obviously, but involuntarily my feet conduct to the music. It's weird.
Rain or shine?
Usually I like the sun but I do love the occasional rainy day :)
Confession time... what's a flaw of yours?
Ugh. Auditions. No matter how well I've prepared, I'm usually a complete wreak. I'm usually a lot better at auditions when the audition music is something that I chose, rather than an assigned piece however.
Sally, the music geek, loves just music in general.
You've just won an unlimited lifetime supply of... what?
Oh! Instrument repairs and tune-ups! Those can be so $$$$. Or biofreeze. That would be lovely as well.
If you were an animal, what would you be?
Either some sort of fish or a tiger. I lean towards tiger though.
If you knew you were going to die in a year, what would you do with your time?
Hmm. That's a good one. Spend a lot of time with my friends and family and play trumpet until the very end.
You're now a gazillionaire... where do you go to spend your money?
Lots of pretty high end instruments and such....and all their accessories. I'm such a BAND GEEK.
Classical music: love it or hate it?
Being the music geek I am, it would be hypocritical to hate such a big and important genre of music. Is it my favorite? Not to listen to necessarily, but I do play a lot of classical pieces. I consider classical trumpet playing a real challenge and art when done well.
Bears. *shivers* TERRIFIED of bears. Other fears?
The little green light on the smoke detector
....my band director.
Hop on a plane and go live somewhere for a year... where is it, and why?
Oh the list goes on and on........I'd like to start with Paris.
Are you an extrovert or an introvert?
Hi! I'm Sally! *shakes hand* How are you? What's your name? I'm Sally. I'm a trumpet player! Do you play an instrument? Etc, etc.
Would you/do you perform on stage?
Do I perform? What a silly question....
OF COURSE I DO! I'M A MUSICIAN FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE!
