No. Just, no.

What do you like on your hamburgers?
Cheese, ketchup, mustard, pickles.

What does your dad do for a living?
He's one of the managing editors on the sports desk at the St Louis Post-Dispatch. His name and number are in the paper every day, so he gets calls from crazy people.

When did you get up today?
6:!5 am. to watch the Monaco GP with my dad and Lulu.

What color was the last vehicle you were in?
Cranberry, my cute little Camry.

We moved to this house in the summer of 1990.

A few days ago, but I hadn't slept yet.

Working on an essay about the Columbian Exchange.

When was the last time you slept in someone else's bed?
No idea.

Are there any candles in the room you're in?
Just the one, a mint one on the table next to me (I'm in the sunroom).

If you turn around, what is behind you?
The wall behind me, which is basically all windows.

Would you dye your hair hot pink for $50?
Eh, probably not. That's too much hassle.

I don't think so.

Do you have any step or half siblings?

Do you take any prescription meds?
Yes, I take Valium for my panic disorder.

What happens if you don't take them?
I don't sleep and feel more apprehensive about the possibility of panic attacks. I usually don't even take any during the day; knowing I can is enough.

What color is your underwear?
Red with white polka dots.

Who was the last person you dreamt about?
I had a dream a few nights ago that Jason Isaacs (British actor) was the headmaster at my school and all of a sudden we started making out in front of the whole class. I don't even wanna know what's behind that one.

Where was the last place you spent more than $50?
Barnes and Noble, buying biographies and travel memoirs.

Who was the last person to hug you?
My mom.

No. I'm in post-shower-relaxation mode, which means yogas and a T-shirt.

Yep! I prefer them burnt.

Yep, just did. I love showers. I love the sweet, nutty smell of my shampoo (Bumble & bumble Gentle), and tilting my face up to the water, and the feel of damp curls cascading down my shoulders.

When was the last time you took a nap?
A really long time ago.

Would you consider yourself a nice person?
Not as nice as I would like to be. I'm working on it.

Wear glasses?
Yep, tortoiseshell ones. I like them.

What color are your headphones?
Black. The special earbuds I have for running are pink.

Do you believe in abortion?
I'm pro-life, but I don't think it should be illegal because this is America and I don't try to apply my moral beliefs to how the whole country should be run, because the Constitution is written the way it is for a reason. I can only make choices for myself and other people's choices are not my business.

Opinion on Taylor Swift?
I love Taylor Swift, except her last album. She's become sort of hipster-y, unfortunately, but she has to live in a way that is authentic to who she is right now.

Are you a breakfast person?:
Oh my goodness, yes. I have low blood sugar and if I don't eat when I get up I get sick. Besides, I'm starving when I wake up. I will never be a dieter simply because I like to eat.

How often do you exercise? What type of exercises?:
Everyday. I'm working on a running program, and on the days I don't run I walk several miles, and sometimes I do both in one day, and I do a ballet program as well. I'm bad at sitting still without morning exercise.

Any favorite TV shows?:
Pretty Little Liars, Switched at Birth, NCIS, Dance Moms, Toddlers & Tiaras. Oh, sue me, I'm not Amish.

What type of books do you like to read?:
Histories, biographies, classic lit, Celia Rivenbark's essays.

Sometimes, but they were usually 3-4 grades below my reading level, so mostly I was just incredibly bored.

The walls are painted a pretty shade of green, which I like, and I have posters: Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, a black-and-white shot of Paris, a Degas print over my dressing table. My bedroom is very girlie-French with a touch of bohemian.

What size bed do you sleep on?:
Extra-long twin.

Do you stay up unnaturally late at night or do you get to bed early?:

What are you usually doing if you're up late at night?:
Usually studying, or reading, or watching things on Netflix.

Cereal and milk.

What do you get when you go to the movies?:

Black on the outside, gooey on the inside.

Are you old enough to vote yet?:

Is voting important to you, or are you uninterested by politics?:

Are you alright at world geography?:
Getting pretty good, and falling in love with it more every day.

What part of history interests you most?:
What a question! I love ancient history, and European history from about 1700--1945, and I'm actually really getting into American history which I never thought would happen.

Do you keep your cell phone on you all the time?:

No, if I'm at home it's usually in my room someplace, or still in my purse.

Dri-Fit socks.

She's my sister.

Whistling and throat-clearing.

Laura Bush's memoirs, The History of the Ancient World by Susan Wise Bauer, The Lost Girls.

If you were cheated on, would you be to embarrassed to tell other people?:
No, that would hardly be my fault.

Do you have overly protective parents?:
Yes, but I love them anyway. Although it does get a bit stupid. I'll be taking the trash to the curb and my mom will call, "Be careful!" Big vote of confidence there.

Do you like cheesecake?:
Yes! I love cheesecake!
