Ask a Question!
« on: July 16, 2010, 09:33:48 AM »
The game is very simple: post a question. Then the next person answers, before posting a new question. 

Example post:
Quote
[answer to previous poster's question]

[new question]

I'll begin: if you'd happen to meet your favourite tennis player, what would you do?

I'll answer: I already met my top 3 tennis players :)~ Different things happened:

1. Gasquet (David Cup 2008): Before Saturday's doubles, he was practicing with PHM. I had a poster that said, "J'adore Clement/Llodra" but I was also wearing a shirt that said "Go Bryans!". :rofl_2: After practice, they came over to sign our stuff. Richie looked at my shirt, at my poster, at me and had a confused look on his face. :rofl_2: But he signed anyway. The next day, I went to a reception for all the players and was able to take a picture with Richard. I said bonjour and he said bonjour back and that was it. If I had to do it all over again, I'd just chat with him a bit more. I was nervous. :blush:

2. Roddick: (WTT Smash Hits 2009) I was volunteering as a media relations intern and got Andy to sign the Andy Roddick poster I'd received for my high school graduation. Niiiiiice. ;)

3. Korolev: (Houston 2010). It couldn't have gone any better. I was watching him practice and as he was leaving, I met up with him and said, "Zhenya, can I have an autograph?" and he said, "Suuuuuure." Then as he was writing, he said, "I remember you." And I said, "Yes! You made the video for me last year!" and his brother Alexey said, "Yes, it's on Youtube!" Then Zhenya wrote a wonderful message and took a picture with me and was really nice... and sweaty! :lust: He lost his match, but that day, I added him as a friend on facebook and he accepted my friend request. :))

What would you do on a perfect day?

Whatching tennis - preferrable watching Roger WIN a tennis match.

If you had your choice of any job in the world - what would it be?

Several:

- a sugar baby so I can be some man's arm candy and get black AMEX cards with no spending limits, cars, houses, and vacations. I'm totally serious.
- a tennis injury trainer who works solely on groin injuries. :Devil:
- a wedding planner :)

What's your favorite dessert or other kind of sweet?

ETA: Scott beat me! :ranting:

We don't have Chipotle here.

Well since we had BGT & Scott answer it together, I'll answer BGT's last question:

My Favorite dessert is what I'm sitting here right now eating out of one hand, and typing with the other:  BLUE BELL HOMEMADE ICE CREAM!!!!!


Next question:  What was the most (or one of the most) embarrassing moments in your life?

I should let someone else answer this question because I have never had a big embarrassing moment that I can remember.  I did bust out a few tears at my sister's wedding while doing some reading in front of everyone, that sucked.  OK, I guess I answered it.

Dogs or cats?  And why?
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Most embarrassing :dunno:  but this one comes to mind.

I was writing an email to Steve telling him what a jack-ass Brent was the night before... again. Brent is a habitually liar and tries to snare you in his web of lies when you're meeting pretty ladies in bars. But I sent the email to Brent not Steve!  
:blush: :lmao!: :hysterical:


Is the the "offseason," and when does the tennis season resume?

Right now it's cats, but I might be getting a dog soon, so maybe it'll change.

I love cats because they're cute, funny (my cats at least) and very easy to maintain :).

Have you ever been addicted to something?

I get addicted to video games something fierce.  I should not be allowed to play them, I actually avoid them now.  Have not played any online games for a while.  I am addicted to tennis.

Is golf a sport?

I think she was going for chemical addiction, Scootie, no one cares about your childhood. I'm addicted nitrogen and oxygen (and other inert gases); have to take in large amounts every couple-three seconds or I get lightheaded.

Never ever played a single match, game, or point in tennis!  Just a big FAN.

That would probably be Napels: I have lots of good memories of the place, and Napels itself is truly beautiful. It would be even better if there weren't so many cars and vespas stinking up the place :Confused:.

What was the last concert you've been to?

I have only ever been to (2) concerts I think.  The last one was a Michael W. Smith concert back in 2001 or so.

What's your biggest regret?
