Chances are you’ve had a lot of togetherness with your family. You might be running out of things to talk about. We’ve got you covered.
What celebrity chef would you want to cook for you?
Oof. There are so many good choices out there. I can’t decide, so I’m picking a female trifecta-Ree Drummond for the appetizers, Katie Lee for the entree, and Trisha Yearwood for dessert. That would be a really fun, calorie-filled day. Can someone make that happen for me?
Do I love the Pioneer Woman? Yes. Do her floral dishes give me life? Yes. BUT a few years ago, when Caroline was living in Arkansas, she drove and I flew to Oklahoma and met up and had lunch at the Pioneer Woman’s restaurant. I felt like Julia Roberts jet setting to Pawhuska to do lunch. SO for that reason, I feel like in a sense, I’ve had Ree cook for me.
SO I’d want Curtis Stone to cook me a meal. I have no idea what his specialties are, but I know he’s Australian and his teeth are perfect. He’s hired.
What kids’ movie completely scarred you?
Omg. THE SCARIEST MOVIE OF OUR TIME-HOOK! I CAN NOT with that movie. Call me a weenie. I don’t care. I saw it way back when, and I’m not exaggerating when I say I couldn’t sleep for weeks. I would go into all the scary elements right now, but I’d need a Valium afterwards, so I won’t. To this day if I see it on TV, I will quickly pass it by and find something way less terrifying. Get out of my nightmares, Dustin Hoffman!
Dick Van Dyke can do no wrong. He is one of the greatest treasures of our country, and in my opinion, he’s the male Betty White. However, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is one of the weirdest things I have ever seen. I get that the 60s were an odd time for most, but this entire movie is an acid trip. And the child catcher? Forget it. Scariest human I have ever seen. He can smell children with that Jimmy Durante nose, and his hair looks like mine when I run out of dry shampoo. I’ve never been the same since watching it.
What is something you recently realized and you’re embarrassed that you didn’t realize it earlier?
I literally just realized this a couple of weeks ago when I saw it on TV somewhere. I’ve apparently been grating cheese the wrong way my whole life. Was I wrong?
Am I alone in this? Cheese say no.
This is weird, but it’s the only thing I can think of. I used to wonder why homeless people always had shopping carts. In my mind I thought, “Of all things?” It dawned on me one day that they just take them from grocery store parking lots. I am the naivest of naive.
If you were a tv or movie character, who would you be?
A friend of mine told me years ago that I was Elaine from Seinfeld. I don’t know if that’s true or not; I also don’t know if that is an insult or not. I’ve never watched Seinfeld. Am I Elaine? Someone tell me.
I think I’m a mix of Rose Nylund from Golden Girls and Monica from Friends. I’m naive, innocent, and fun like Rose. However, I can be set in my ways about certain things like Monica.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again- I am Jessica Day. The singing. The clothes. The quirks. She is me.
But I’d also like to think I have a lot of Lorelai Gilmore tendencies. The quippy comebacks. The coffee addiction. The hiding from reality.
If you could choose a lifetime supply of anything, what would it be?
This is definitely not a fun answer, but the first thing that came to mind was chapstick. Not just any chapstick either. It has to be Burt’s Bees. Caroline:Burt’s Bees::Lisa Rinna:lip injections
I actually had the thought the other day that I don’t know what I’d do if they ever stopped making it. I really don’t. I have one in my purse, one in the kitchen, one in the bathroom, one in the living room, and one in my car. It’s a problem, but I guess it’s better than having that same love for cocaine.
When Mark and I met for the first time, he actually presented me with a bouquet of Burt’s Bees. That won me over.
My cool answer would be airline tickets. My practical answer would be coffee in keeping with the Lorelai theme. There is nothing sadder than realizing you don’t have enough to start your day. It’s not like coffee shops are a dime a dozen. I’m kidding. They obviously are, but I need it when I wake up. It’s important to note that I have given up caffeine for the month of September, so this is really on my mind.
We’d love to know your answers to some of the questions. Are you Kramer? Do you want The Barefoot Contessa to make you a dish? Are you as dumb as Kat in regards to homeless people?
