Today, I’m introducing y’all to my Table Topic Tuesday peeps. I started this little game without proper introductions. Now you can connect a face to the funny.
Every Tuesday, I’ll pull a table topic conversation starter and send it to my pals to get their take.
To help you get to know the panel that will be answering a weekly question, I asked my friends to answer a few, yup, questions (I get to answer first).
What song do you listen to more than any other song? (Me? Mrs. Potter’s Lullaby. Foolproof for any mood. Dare you to try it.)
What’s your favorite writing utensil–pencil, sharpie, etc? (Purple pens. I don’t like slippery, smudgy ink. Black and blue are too legal and red is way too angry. Purple is just right.)
What’s your favorite quote? (I have a bunch of favorites.)
What’s your favorite dessert? (Pecan (that’s pee-can) pie, salted caramel, coffee ice cream)
What’s your biggest pet peeve? (mouth noises, pity parties, mean people)
And the best for last: What is your all-time favorite Disney ride, attraction or movie?
(Magic Kingdom: Big Thunder & Wishes. EPCOT: World Showcase. Hollywood Studios: Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. Animal Kingdom: Expedition Everest. Movie: Beauty & The Beast)
Now, the panel’s up.
Song? U2’s For the First Time.
Writing utensil? A keyboard, headphones and my iTunes library.
Best quote eva? Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. – Calvin Coolidge
Yummiest dessert? Cookies and milk.
Pet peeve? Any denial of my right to failure Disney highlight? Peter Pan: “think of all the joy you’ll find, when you leave the world behind and bid your cares goodbye.”
Song? That’s really tough. It varies all the time. Right now “stronger than me” from the Nashville soundtrack.
Writing utensil? Blue ink pen. (distinguishes originals from copies). Lawyer thing.
Best quote eva? “be a best friend, tell the truth and overuse I love you. Go to work, do your best and don’t outsmart your common sense. Never let your prayin knees get lazy. And love like crazy”
Yummiest dessert? Root beer float or pecan pie
Pet peeve? When people don’t follow through with what they say they’ll do.
Disney highlight? Because I can’t decide: Ride: rockin roller coaster, attraction: world showcase, movie: Cinderella
Song? Who Wouldn’t Want to Be Me…Keith Urban
Writing utensil? Definitely a black roller ball pen…always. Unless I’m doing a crossword puzzle, then pencil all the way.
Best quote eva? “What we leave behind is not as important as how we lived.”
Yummiest dessert? Rice krispie treats, because who doesn’t love a little gooey marshmallow in their life
Pet peeve? People who don’t know how to drive. Road rage is a fault of mine, which is why I maintain a 5-minute commute to work.
Disney highlight? Spaceship Earth…hands down. With the Norway movie coming in a close second.
Song? Probably a tie between “Carousel” by blink-182 (My friends and I all take our hats off during the intro, out of respect), “The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows” by Brand New, “Pursuit Of Happiness” by Kid Cudi and “Halftime” by Nas
Writing utensil? Whatever is in front of me. I do usually write out scripts, headlines and posts on paper before typing them out.
Best quote eva? “You’re not useful to me until you’ve made three momentous mistakes.” – Dan Wieden; “Everybody is wrong about everything, just about all the time.” – Chuck Klosterman; “You idiot, the Boston Tea Party was in England” – My friend Noah; Everything Bill Murray has ever said
Yummiest dessert? Pinkberry original with fruity pebbles, almonds and gummy bears
Pet peeve? Having to declare one pet peeve as the biggest. (A few highlights: People who call the Nike ‘swoosh’ a check; cotton balls; cats; drivers who don’t use blinkers; every person in every airport, ever)
Disney highlight? Somewhere at my parents house I have a full set of Disney trading cards, every issue of the short-lived Chip N’ Dale Rescue Rangers comic book series and a 3rd grade yearbook picture of me wearing a homemade Pluto Christmas sweater. Top 5 Disney movies: 5. Peter Pan 4. Snow White 3. The Great Mouse Detective 2. Beauty and the Beast 1. The Rescuers Down Under
Song? This changes every few months, but I love Burn It Down by Awolnation
Writing utensil? Black pens because I’m boring.
Best quote eva? “If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it.” –Andy Rooney
Yummiest dessert? Cookie dough ice cream
Pet peeve? “Literally”
Disney highlight? One from each park:
Epcot — Spaceship Earth
Magic Kingdom — Space Mountain
Animal Kingdom: Everest
Hollywood Studios — The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights
Song? Depends on the week!
Writing utensil? My laptop. How unromantic, right?
Best quote eva? “I don’t think any day is worth living without thinking about what you’re going to eat next at all times.” ― Nora Ephron
Yummiest dessert? Publix’s Carrot Cake. To. Die. For.
Pet peeve? When my husband throws his towel on the bathroom floor instead of the hamper.
Disney highlight? The Little Mermaid!
