Random Questions, Answered

Blair tagged me for this set of questions, which I think were written for the sixteen year old MySpace set, but I'll do them anyway.

Were you born before the end of the first Gulf war?

Yes. I may be a lot younger than some of you, but I was in high school during the first war.

Childhood nickname?
George. A family friend decided Jordana was too hard to say and started calling me George. Much to my chagrin as a little girl, it stuck.

And no, no one in my immediate family was named after me, despite this coincidence. In fact, it never occurred to me at the time.

Historical person you have the biggest crush on?

I really don't have any historical crushes that I can think of.

How about admire?
I can't come up with anyone I'm even in great admiration of at the moment.

Favorite type of candy?
Dark chocolate, black liquorice and anything gummy.

Favorite foreign country(ies)?
England. At one time, I would have said Germany, but I think a bit less favorably of them at the moment.

Fish or chicken?
It depends. I love a perfectly cooked piece of salmon or tuna.

Do you have your own perfume line?
I never touch the stuff.

Have you ever written a children's book?
No, but I always think it would be fun to try.

Have you been in a movie based on a book?
No, neither have I been in any other sort of movie.

Ever posed nude for a photo?
Yes, but not after the age of about 4.

Guiltiest pleasure?
The occasional indulgence in bad romance novel reading.

Your best nonguilty pleasure, then?
I do like a hot bath and a cup of tea.

What are you allergic to?
Penicillin, maybe.

Worst pickup line you've heard?
I suppose I lived a sheltered life, because I haven't had any used on me.

Were you bar mitzvahed?
No, nor even bat mitzvahed.

Have you ever cried during a TV interview?

If they made a movie of your life, who would play you?
I have one of those faces that looks like about a million other people, so I think they'd have no trouble finding some starving actress out there to play me. I did notice recently that Claire Danes and I have the same boring, straight hair, so if they want to go high budget they can cast her.

Pet peeve?
I've mentioned the dropping of "-ly" endings and the use of "real" when one should say "really." People who refer to God as "Dad" when leading a prayer. I'm also not too fond of Legos being left all over the floor. I think I could make a long list of things that bug me at the moment, but that's probably the 9th month of pregnancy hormones talking.

If you weren't doing what you do, what job would you like to have?
I would love to be an artist, but I don't have the business drive to ever make something like that a going concern.

Place you will never be found?
Skydiving and/or bungee jumping

Why did you participate in this tagging?
Because Blair asked, and she's gotten so much brighter since the time when she used to date my brother.


"Dad"?! Good God!
