Venus Trapped in Mars

It's #FavTotalSocial time with me and Helene! My original plan was to repost my favorite blog post I had ever written. But I changed my mind, because, I'm a girl and that's what we do.

Side note: I started to make an X chromosome joke just then. But I had to google to confirm which chromosome it was that women had because I was busy doodling "Mrs. Sarah DiCaprio" and "Sarah hearts Ashton" the day we talked about that in Mr. Steven's 6th grade science class. I then learned it was the X chromosome that we have, and the website I was reading said the X chromosome comes with a larger user manual than the Y chromosome. I laughed and laughed and laughed at that subtle gender joke. Get it science, you're one funny kid. Sorry I never paid more attention to you in middle school, especially since I bet you're filthy stinking rich now.

So instead, today I bring you "Sarah's Favorite Things!"

You get a car, and you get a car, and you get a car!!!!!!!

Totally playing, you just get to read my answers to this random favorite things quiz. It was the first thing to pop up when I googled "favorite things quiz". I know, I really put in all of the efforts. You're welcome.

Favorite pet I ever had
Gee Neyland. Honorable Mention: Veenie.

Favorite car I’ve owned
Very first car, red mustang. I wouldn't want it back, but it will stand as the sentimental favorite.

Favorite meal out, ever

Melting pot. Give me all the cheese and lobster.
Oh, and of course when I go out to see my boyfriend.

Favorite food I’ve cooked

You're a funny little quiz. I like you.

Favorite food from childhood

Favorite movie of all time
Devil Wears Prada. Across the Universe (go ahead, laugh, I don't care).

Favorite book of all time
The Berenstain Bears: Report Card Trouble

well, or...

The Berenstain Bears: Learn About Strangers.

Please don't make me choose.

Favorite item category to go shopping for with a girlfriend

Favorite day out – what, where, with whom
Tailgate, Vols game, Neyland Stadium, 104,000 of my closest friends.

Favorite color
Yellow. Look around and you will see...

Favorite artist
Vincent "huh, what did you just say?" Van Gogh... or.... Miranda Lambert.

I'm not totally clear on the meaning of the question.

Favorite song

Lil Boosie - Wipe Me Down

Favorite paid entertainment I’ve ever seen
Tennessee vs Kentucky. November 24, 2007. Lexington, Ky. 4 Overtimes. BIG ORANGE WINS to make it to SEC Championship.

Favorite hobby activity that makes me get lost for hours
Blogging. No really, I love it.

Favorite skill (past or current)
I can do an incredibly accurate baby cry. Only a handful of people have seen/witnessed it. But it is real, just ask Magen.

Favorite advice I’ve ever been given

"Girls are treacherous. Watch your back." - my dad

Favorite advice I’ve ever given
Never do zumba without following a two-drink minimum policy

Favorite year of the best birthday I ever had… and why
21. Because, 21. I'd include a picture, but we are this far into questions on the post and I haven't used a single image. I get uncomfortable sticking things where they don't belong. *go ahead and insert (no pun intended) the joke here that you know you are dying to make*

Favorite natural wonder I’ve ever seen

Neyland on game day

Favorite close call I’ve ever had
When I was on the L in Chicago, leaving a night game (followed by a night party) in Wrigleyville and the train stopped for an hour for maintenance. No bathrooms. I somehow didn't pee my pants. But if you look up the definition of close call in the dictionary, you'll see my face from that night.

Ok, fine. Here is a picture....

Sheesh, red-eyed pictures. That's so 2009. 

My favorite flower – purchased
The kind of flower that is shaped in the form of a ticket, with a barcode on the back and a seat, row and section number decorated on the front. Those are really beautiful.

My favorite flower or plant – personally grown
This one. Tree/flower... same thing.

My favorite hair day ever?

This day. I'm of course not kidding.

The most favorite gift I’ve ever gotten – what and from whom?

When I got to meet Chipper Jones and Chipper Jones' sweater all in the same day.

Favorite unusual pet I’ve ever had
Betta Fish. It was a ritual to gift one to another sister in the sorority. They couldn't be kept with any other fish because they will fight to the death. Odd ritual, no? Yay Pi Phi!

Favorite outdoor smell
Warning track dirt

Favorite Saturday night ever?
Well, just go to this post and build your own answer to that question.

My favorite non-relative adult growing up
Carl Winslow from Family Matters

Favorite TV rerun I could watch 50 times?
Sex and the City. Not Carrie Diaries. I repeat, not Carrie Diaries.

Favorite item no one knows I own?
Confetti shooter. Well, on second thought, I'm sure that isn't too shocking to hear.

Favorite competent activity I do?

Favorite food item I can never run out of?
Lean cuisines. But not the ones that require stirring halfway though. Those are bs.

The favorite picture I’ve ever taken?

Ahh yes, my nightlife.

Favorite secret I still safeguard? (don’t reveal it!)
Now my head hurts.

On that, I'm out!
