Tigernach, a.k.a., Tierney, and I met through blogging, and became fast friends. It doesn’t hurt that she has a fabulous sense of style and wears nothing but red lipstick (automatic fashion idol.)
1. Are you named after anyone?
I’m pretty sure every woman with a shag haircut and a baby bump in the 80s named their child after a character in a movie. Hi, I’m Lexi(e) – she spells it wrong, not me – a young figure skater destined for greatness, who suffers a freak accident, loses her eye sight, but alas, she skates again! Ice Castles – that’s my namesake. I, on the other hand, couldn’t read the chalkboard by the third grade, carried a little extra pudge just short of my teenage years, and never could memorize more than two steps in a row. Bye Bye figure skating career.
2. When was the last time you cried?
American Idol makes me cry. Seriously.
3. Do you have kids?
My uterus hurts. No. We’ve been married a little over 3 months; leave me alone (she says pouting.)
4. If you were another person would you be a friend of yourself?
5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Ha, um, yes. But here’s the thing. I don’t get sarcasm. I always miss it. There was this Episode of Friends, where Ross always missed the sarcasm, and so he needed everyone to raise their hand when sarcasm was being used. I’m Ross.
6. Will you ever bungee-jump?
Not.A.Chance. I can get the same rush from shopping and with shopping there’s a reward – a purse, impractical shoes, pink lipstick. With bungee, there’s just broken bones. Lame.
7. What’s your favourite cereal?
I would just like to mention here that Tigernach is NUTS – she is on a “no carb” kick. I.MUST.HAVE.CARBS. But I digress, I LOVE cereal. But I hate milk. For years I ate cereal with a fork so all of the milk could drain off. I tried water, but water and cereal is oddly gross as well. Almond Milk is my new go to. Oh wait – this question was about cereal. Anything peanut butter if I just don’t give a darn, and Raisin Bran when I’m “trying” (i.e., pretending to not be a pig). Fun fact – the raisins are covered in sugar … don’t tell anyone.
8. What’s the first thing you notice about people?
9. What is your eye colour?
Brown/Black/Boring. The hubby has blue eyes, my mama has blue eyes, I pray every day that my children (born in a minimum of ten years from today – see response to number 3) pop out with blue eyes. I would be way hotter with light eyes. My eyes are so dark, colored contacts make my eyes look blacker. Stupid genetics.
10. Scary movie or happy endings?
I’m scared just hearing the phrase, “scary movie.” I won’t watch them. I scream each and every time Ursula bursts out of the water in The Little Mermaid.
11. Favourite smells?
In no particular order:
Coppertone Baby Sunblock – the one in the pink bottle with the blue lid. I wear it every day. It reminds me of childhood and happiness.
My stinky husband.
My stinky puppy, Bellyanor.
12. Summer or winter?
Winter stinks. Move to Miami and sweat with me.
13. Computer or television?
This is the saddest question ever. In fact, this very question plagues my newlywed household. Hubby says cable is a waste. Apparently (news to me) television is ONLINE. Hulu, Fancast, whatever. But I don’t care, I Want My MTV! I LOVE television. But I NEED internet. Survey Says? This question bites.
14. What’s the furthest you’ve been from home?
Cambridge, England – Summer Abroad. Europe with the fam. Europe with the hubs. I’m spoiled rotten.
15. Do you have any special talents?
I can hold a pencil between my shoulder blades. TALENT! (Who needs figure skating??)
16. Where were you born?
Miami, Florida. Did I Mention I hate winter?
17. What are your hobbies?
I read everything – definite bookoholic, I’ll shop til I drop (literally), I like to cook and craft (not sure that I’m particularly good at either), and I’m going to throw working out in for good measure – maybe the pretense that I do like to exercise will trick my legs into spinning on the electric bike thingy machine. Still not working.
18. Do you have any pets?
Belly-anor, stinky dog extraordinaire, and Hannah the dog (property of the collective fam.)

19. Favourite movie?
This question is even harder than the tv vs. internet query. Can I list them?
Clueless (the bible), Pretty Woman, The Princess Bride, The Philadelphia Story, The Notebook (minus the sad parts), Sabrina (both of them), Say Anything, Dirty Dancing, Monsters Inc., The Princess Diaries, First Knight, The Sweetest Thing, and every movie that Rotten Tomatoes hates.
20. Do you have any siblings?
I’m one of four. My sibs complete me.
21. What do you wanna be when you grow up?
haha, can I get back to you on that?
