    SO MUCH BROWN HAIR, EVERYONE!

    1. What makes you feel good?

    My dogs, except when they are being awful. Seriously though, a nice training session gives me such a blast of happy! And cuddles. Also reading a good book, taking pictures (same as a good training session, after a good shoot I'm sooo pumped!), and recently rock climbing is making me very happy. Also hanging out on the beach with friends and beer, and occasionally a good party.

    And being with my sisters.

    Bonus funny picture (as you can see we are extremely attractive).

    2. What color is your hair?

    Surprise surprise, it's brown! Light brown to be exact, with blondish in it. A boring color I think, I used to dye it darker, and I'd love to go lighter but my hair is so dry and brittle already that I just know it would ruin it.

    3. What do you have planned for the weekend?

    SO EXCITED! I'm going to train at an IPO club (for the first time) both Saturday and Sunday. It's a 5ish hour drive one way so I'm doing two nights away, and my mom is coming so we are making a girls trip out of it.

    4. What's your favorite vegetable?

    I love them all, especially all together in a salad, can I just say salad? But probably, carrots fresh from the garden raw (SO GOOD), peas, cucumber, oh gosh pretty much everything straight from the garden is the best.

    5. What three albums would you take with you if you were planning ahead for being stuck on a deserted island for a year?

    I'd bring my boyfriend and his guitar with me, and then he could play just about everything that I like anyway. He does great covers. Is that cheating?

    Oh and also,
    = good plan.

    I guess my answer is spinach then!

    EXCUSES! I'll accept terrible puppy pictures. :p

    Hah, there are a lot of brunettes in this thread. I used to dye mine darker and I loved it but the maintenance is such a PITA.

    It's totally cheating! I'm going to allow it because of your funny picture.

    Cookouts! One on Saturday and one on Monday. Both are Dog friendly :D

    Hmmm, Potato? Though I guess if I have to pick a non-root one Cauliflower. Or broccoli or brussels sprouts or yellow squash... My parents never had trouble getting me to eat my veggies!

    How am I playing them on a deserted island? I'm all for the solar-powered iPod set up :p

    1. What makes you feel good?

    I'd say my dog, but he was being a brat about 10 minutes ago. He's being good now and looks super cute, so I guess I'll still say my dog. Also on the list is my baby snake, who never misbehaves (1 point for pet reptiles!), and the mocha fudge brownies I just made, and the music I'm listening to, and taking/editing pictures.

    2. What color is your hair?

    Black (and no, not just because the picture is in black/white!!)
    [​IMG]

    3. What do you have planned for the weekend?
    Not sure yet. Thinking of maybe going for a hike to a nearby park with Trent. My roommate is visiting home and I wish I could go with, but I just have too much here to leave for the weekend.

    4. What’s your favorite vegetable?

    Broccoli, onions, carrots, lettuce, cabbage, and any kind of spicy pepper. Bell peppers are good, too, though! With vegetables, if it's not something I hate (like eggplant) then usually I love it.

    5. What three albums would you take with you if you were planning ahead for being stuck on a deserted island for a year?

    The Disappearance of the Girl - Phildel
    Born to Die - Lana Del Ray
    Little Letters - Paper Aeroplanes
    Drink the Sea - The Glitch Mob


    I KNOW, I CHEATED. I'm sorry!

    YOU. I like your music taste, a lot.

    !!!!!!!!

    That IS really, really exciting!!! Hope you and Onyx both have a ton of fun!!

    Florence is perfect. She captures my feelings exactly. Drumming Song is my favorite.

    We could clearly go on a road trip together without disagreement.

    Now, my question is, are we ALL stranded on the desert island together? If so, we have a several day long playlist.

    Oregon blackberry from Good Times. Will my island have a year-long supply?

    On phone so no pics. Eta: just go to my flickr and steal some!

    Good music is really the most important part of a road trip. I travel a lot back and forth between campus and my hometown, and that is the only truth I know.

    Florence is amazing, and her voice and the rhythm of her music is unbelievably on point. Was just listening to Howl, but just relistened to Drumming Song and YES. There is something so satisfying and perfect about that song (and the entire album, really).

    Proof that Chaz isn't real life is when I have TWO people complimenting my tastes in music instead of OH GOD WHAT IS THIS INDIE CRAP WHY IS SHE SINGING LIKE THAT. :rofl1:

    Her second one really didn't improve upon the first, IMO. I love Swimming and Bedroom Hymns, but nowhere near like the rawness and passion of the first.

    YES. We are all siblings separated at birth. :p when Florence comes to Red Rocks you're all visiting. I <3 you two.

    I will stop thread jacking now... But we need to do this again next week. This is brilliant!

    yeah Lungs is definitely my favorite album of hers.

    All my RL friends listen to country which makes me sad. I don't MIND it so much but no one listens to my kind of thing. And the country they do listen to is the modern kind and I know none of that.
