BEDA #1 - Sunday Confessions :)




So, in an effort to maintain any sort of credibility during BEDA (Blog Every Day in April), I'm starting as I mean to go on! That is, with a dumb questionnaire to fill out. It's late, however, and this one's nice and simple. Five secret or not-so-secret confessions.

1. I absolutely hate Easter. It's the one 'holiday' I could totally live without. Nothing of any worth happens, chocolate eggs are just overpriced, dumb shaped and generally nasty tasting (cheap) chocolate, and it begins touristy grockle season, which makes me want to hibernate in the house all Summer long. As a kid I used to do the whole Easter bunny egg hunt thing with my parents, but once I learned the Easter bunny doesn't exist doesn't visit older kids, the novelty fast wore off.

2. I can't leave the house without mascara. If I were to be trapped on a desert island, and for some reason they demanded I take only one item of makeup, it would be mascara. The world can go to hell, but as long as I have beautiful eyes, I'll rock the armageddon with dazzling peepers.

3. I call myself a 'gamer', but I've never played a single 'Zelda' game. Nor 'Metroid', 'Silent Hill', 'Resident Evil' or very much of 'Metal Gear Solid'. I said I call myself a 'gamer', I never said I was a very good one.

4. I am shamelessly in love with 'teen drama' media. Especially shows like '90210', 'Greek' and 'Freaks & Geeks'. I devour 'Sweet Valley High' books, too. I kind of hated this stuff when I was a teenager, so it stands to reason that I'm reliving it all as a grown up.

5. I only read '1984' initially because I discovered a Phoenix Wright fanfic based on it. I am entirely cultured like that. (For what it's worth, I absolutely loved everything about it and went on to read pretty much every dystopian/false utopian book I could find.)

Agreement on Easter. guess it's only important if you are a devout Christian. At least we get time off.

I don't even get that! I work part time in a cafe that gets really busy during tourist season! Probably part of the reason I don't like Easter, everyone else is off having fun and I'm doing all the extra hours :(

You should totally play the first one on that list since SOMEONE bought one of them for you years ago

I consider myself a gamer AND a game enthusiast, but I never played any of those titles either, save for the Silent Hill series. Being a gamer doesn't mean you have to play everything that's "hot" because everyone else is playing it (granted though, when games hit the Hot List they generally at least tend to be pretty good and worth a gander). "Hardcore" gamers tend to, and that's cool, but you don't have to play Gears of War to be a gamer.

I consider myself a huge game fanatic and I don't actually play ALL that many games. But I love the industry, I love the gamer lifestyle, the media, etc... I just indulge in the entire atmosphere. But that doesn't mean I play Mass Effect (I have no interest personally) or anything that's super-duper popular.

My favorite series right now is Professor Layton; I'm a diehard fangirl at this point. I also enjoy Mario (2D mostly), God of War and various other tidbits here and there, and I mostly like to watch my boyfriend play FPS, simply because I like their stories but I SUCK AT THEM :)
