Three Meme

I never do these things (insecurity – I am usually sure I am just too uninteresting to bother), but since I was personally called upon to do so by AiE, I guess I’ll give it a shot...

3 names you go by:
- Short version of my first name
- My full first name (on business cards and film credits)
- Christmas Tree (long story)

3 screennames you've had (besides blog psuedonym):
- all are variations on my first and last name

3 physical things you like about yourself:
- hands (I’m reaching here – I don’t like anything about myself physically)
- feet
- the fact that I lost a bunch of weight and now feel normal

3 physical things you dislike about yourself:
- thinning hair
- a little flabby around the middle
- the shape of my face (too oval, wish I had a squarer jaw)

3 parts of your heritage:
- Italian
- Norwegian
- what we affectionately call, in my family, ‘heinz 57’ – a little bit of everything

3 things you are wearing right now:

3 physical things about the preferred sex that appeals to you:

- soft skin

3 of your favorite hobbies:
- reading
- moviegoing (rarely get to indulge in this)
- I need more hobbies

3 things you want to do really badly right now:
- not have to get up early in the morning (I love sleeping late and miss it since I had kids)
- go to the movies
- have a good reason to listen to my new iPod mini

3 things that scare you:
- noises while I am laying in bed at night
- that anything might ever happen to one of my kids

3 of your everyday essentials:

3 careers you have considered or are considering:
- lawyer (a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away)
- owning an antiquarian book shop
- running a retro art-deco-style moviehouse that serves full meals, wine, etc.

3 places you want to go on vacation:
- Great Britain
- Disney World (I have kids, I love to see the looks on their faces when they go to places like this)
- Italy (it’s a family heritage thing)

3 kids' names you like:
- Carter
- Evelyn
- Molly

3 things you want to do before you die:
- make a movie with a biggish budget and the actors of my choosing
- walk my daughters down the aisle when they get married
- earn enough money so that I don’t have to sweat the monthly budget

3 ways you are stereotypically a boy:
- I don't talk about "my feelings" – it’s instinctive. I just get quiet and watch TV.
- I love watches and buy new ones whenever I can afford to.
- I am obsessed with baseball and football; I follow the records of my favorite teams and obsess over stats and records.

3 ways you are stereotypically a chick:
- I am very concerned about my appearance.
- I actually like shopping for new clothes (at least, now that I can shop in normal-person sizes)
- I am a clean freak (I don’t know if this is stereotypically ‘chick’-like, but it comes from my mom, so I am equating it with her)

3 celeb crushes:
- Isabella Rossellini
- Tina Fey
- Kate Winslet

3 people I would like to see take this quiz now:
- Chuck – only because he never does this stuff
- Tina Fey (what the hell; she’d probably make it a lot funnier than I did)
- the main character in the movie I’m making this summer

Hey, congratulations about losing all the weight! You must feel great. I'd love to hear more about how you did it.

I would love to run a retro art-deco-style moviehouse with you. And Filmmaker could be the projectionist; he did that in high school.

And Filmmaker totally has the same love for soundtracks that you do. (Here's a secret--I'm getting him an iPod for graduation! ;)

I'm working slowly on the meme. These things take time, especially when you usually try to hide from these things....
