#1. What's a nickname only your family calls you?
They call me Claudia. Nothing really stuck, but when I was little Carla, my sister, called me Cluck-Cluck. My mom told her to stop that though, because she thought that it made me sound retarded. Mom didn't want other people to freak out. Truthfully, the name stemmed from the fact that I liked those Easter Chicky Peeps so much.
#2. What's a weird habit of yours?
I always fantasize about impossible things. Like I wish I could magically heal a blemish, make garbage disappear of the face of the earth, or make my student loan go away. POOF!
#3. Do you have any weird phobias?
Yes! Horizontal claustrophobia (I'm cool with small vertical spaces). When I was little I saw a TV show on cave exploration, and watched some people squeeze through tight holes barely the size of their torsos. It freaked me out and I haven't been the same since. So I can't sleep in bunk-beds that are close to the ceiling. I tried it once when we went camping in our family RV, and I woke during the middle of the night screaming and crying because I didn't know where I was. My family got the point.
#4. What's a song you secretly love to blast and belt out when you're alone?
Recently Lady Gaga - Judas. I can't help it, I just have to sing!
#5. What's one of your biggest pet peeves?
People that drive too fast and aggressively on the highway. They stress me out.
#6. What's one of your nervous habits?
When I get nervous I tend to make up new words, mispronounce words, or have bad sentence structure. I'm getting better though. People probably think it's cute or silly, but I think it's awfully embarrassing because I like being articulate.
#7. What side of the bed do you sleep on?
The right side.
#8. What was your first stuffed animal and it's name?
Odie. My father gave him to me in the hospital when I was born. He looks like this --- > Oh the cuteness!
#9. What's the drink you always order at Starbucks?
Nothing, I don't go. I answered this one already.
#10. What's a beauty rule you preach, but never actually practice?
Buying products with bad ingredients in them. Sometimes the product's functionality trumps health. Tsk Tsk. I do it for the art I swear!
#11. Which way do you face in the shower?
Towards the shower head mostly. I turn around too.
#12. Do you have any 'weird' body 'skills'?
I'm very flexible. Not Cirque du Soleil flexible, but I'm decent. It's good to be in shape.
#13. What's your favorite comfort food that's 'bad' but you love to eat it anyway?
Well, mine's a drink: I love a good wine! I know it stains your teeth, it's bad for the skin, dehydrates the body, and the small health benefits are not worth it.
#14. What's a phrase or exclamation you always say?
"Hurray, Yay! Hurray, Yay!"
#15. Time to sleep, what are you actually wearing?
Warm pants, sometimes socks, an undershirt, and a hoodie. I get cold very easily.
#16. What did you used to wear that you thought was cool but now you realize it wasn't that hot?
XL sports t-shirts that I would wear down to my knees. I though I was so cool, but I looked like a little boy. Kinda like the middle school drawing here.
Tell me you're just as weird as I am?
