SAMS (something about me saturday)

Please follow up with your own answers in the comments!!

Not grossness, just TMIness

Kelly asked:
SAMS: What vegetable do you not care for very much? :)
Technicalities aside, I hate, hate, hate tomatoes.  They taste sour and have that odd fuzzy texture on the inside.  Plus, I have major digestive issues and tomatoes give me horrible heartburn.  I do not like raw zucchini either.  Cook it and I like it.

SAMS: Who do you think is the hottest celebrity? Which one gets on your nerves the most?
Kelly, Kelly, Kelly...I hope you realize the can of worms you've opened.  Okay, in order for you to see the full scope of how my mind works, I have created categories: 
Guys: Sam Worthington!!, Christian Bale!!, Gerard Butler, Ryan Reynolds, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Ben Gibbard*, John Krasinski, Chris Pine, James McAvoy, Channing Tatum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Heath Ledger, Shia LaBeouf!!, Anita's nephew, Taylor Lautner (I know, I'm a pedophile, but he's a hometown favorite!).
Gals: Keira Knightly!!, Natalie Portman!!, Kristen Stewart!!, Cameron Diaz, Uma Thurman, Zooey Deschanel, Drew Barrymore, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Aniston, Alexis Bledel, Ellen Page, Live Tyler, Bryce Dallas Howard.
Julie Andrews!!, Angela Lansbury, Dustin Hoffman, Robin Williams, Sean Penn, Julia Roberts, Maryl Streep, John Cusak, Nathan Lane, Sally Field!!, Brangelina, Cate Blanchett, Johnny Depp.
Ricky Gervais, Jason Bateman, Seth Green, Elijah Wood, Tina Fey, Seth Rogen, Katherine Heigl, Goldie Hawn, Tom Cruise, Liam Neeson, Steve Zahn, Dakota Fanning, Kate Winslet, Rachel McAdams, Debra Messing.
Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Will Ferrel, Dolly Parton, Brendan Fraser(how can one person enthusiastically make so many crappy movies?!), Brittany Murphy (RIP, I killed her), Catherine Zeta-Jones, Barbara Streisand.
Meg Ryan!!, Nicolas Cage!!, Kate Hudson, Eddie Murphy.

Just a few off the top of my head.  (You asked.)

*Lead singer of Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service and married to Zooey Deschanel.  Just think you should know he was the first love of my gay life.
Heather asked:
Here's a SAMS question: If you had to choose between being able to fly, and having unlimited food, which would you choose? Would it matter if potatoes were taken out of the equation?
Without any qualms I would definitely choose an unlimited supply of food.  I would still make that choice if potatoes were taken out of the equation.  The entire world survived without them until the 15th century.  It would be difficult.  I really have no desire to fly, Superman style at least.  In Every Soul a Star, the idea gained in stock as Jack taught Bree to 'fly', so in a round about way I could have both.

Don't forget to follow up with your own answers in the comments!!
(If you'd like to offer your own SAMS question, do so during the week, just as Kelly, Heather, and Anita have done so loyally.  Any day, anytime, any question.  I'll answer everything on Saturdays.)


  1. That's pretty much a perfect list of celebs for me, too.

    And who would choose flying over food? Pfft.

  2. I was so weirdly happy when I found out Ben Gibbard was marrying Zooey Deschanel. They're like this perfect little emo couple. :-)

  3. That is quite a thorough list, agreed on many of your picks!
    Question: though you don't like tomatoes, do you like ketchup?
    My least favorite veggies are brussel sprouts, asparagus, cooked spinach (I like raw spinach), beets, cooked cabbage (sorry!).
    Hottest celebrities: Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Reynolds, Paul Rudd, Joel McHale. Then there's the hottie rocker celebs: Nikki Sixx (Crue), Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), Synyster Gates and M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold), Brandon Flowers (Killers), JT and Simon of Duran Duran, Jared Leto, Dave Grohl.
    I think Vanessa Williams is the most beautiful female celebrity ever.
    Most annoying: celebrities that are famous without talent like Paris Hilton, Speidi etc. They get on my nerves!
    And I ADORE Will Ferrell! I think Tom Cruise is a talented actor, but his real personality seems very off.
    Plus Zooey and Ben are an adorable couple!
    And FYI Taylor Lautner is 18 now. One of my Facebook statuses last week was "Taylor Lautner is 18 today. I'm just sayin'." :) Are you on FB?
    I'd also pick food over flying!
    Phew! That's one long comment!

  4. I'd pick food over flying. I love The Postal Service. Love, love, love! And Zooey Dechanel. Although "500 Days of Summer" was a disappointment. I have been watching "Tin Man" while I fold clothes. Cooked cabbage has a bad rap. Poor cooked cabbage.

  5. Summer - Thanks and srsly!

    Anna - I know, I feel like a giddy school girl and oddly jealous of both halves of the couple.

  6. Kelly - I strongly feel that ketchup and tomatoes have nothing to do with each other, and yes, I do like ketchup. Matthew McConaughey annoys me, but I agree with the rest of your faves. Vanessa Williams is beautiful, but she looks scary too. I am on Facebook: Jonathon Arntson (make sure you correctly spell the name.)

  7. TLL - I loved (500) Days of Summer! I think the soundtrack is great too. I give cooked cabbage a lot of lovin', to help make up for all the mean haters.

  8. Why do I find it empowering that someone else cannot stand Meg Ryan or Nicholas Cage? I feel petty, small & negative. But, yes, there's someone like me out there. I know not to see a movie if either of them is in it.

  9. SAM WORTHINGTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    *Big sigh*
