Woo hoo!


I'll answer the starter questions awhile, and I'll answer Spidergrrl's when I get back from class.


Question limit: Unlimited. Unless I change my mind!

Gender: Female

Age: 19

Birthday: June 3

Location: PA, USA

Dietary Path/Reason Why: Vegan for the animals

Favorite food(s): baby carrots, granny smith apples, natural peanut butter, Tings, dark chocolate (We can all tell I'm not a gourmet chef!)

Brief Intro: My name is Janelle, but everyone can call me Janie! I am engaged to my high school sweetheart and best friend from childhood.
I grew up in a very small town in Lancaster County, PA - yes, in the heart of Amish country. Right now I'm in the middle of my sophomore year at a large University. I have changed my major twice, and right now I'm set for Environmental Studies. One of my big dreams is to own an animal sanctuary, a la Farm Sanctuary, and live in an old farmhouse that I can fix up and turn into my dream home. Part of my dream tentatively includes raising a family, but it's 10+ years down the road, so I'm not sure yet.
Even though I am still in college, I am struggling with the idea of choosing a career that I love over choosing a career that pays well.

Picture: I don't have any recent ones. I'll just post the ones that I posted in the couples thread!

What do you do when you see a spider?

I say, "hi," then I grab a tissue and wait until it crawls on it. I'm too afraid to pick up spiders, so I just wait for them. Then I pick it up and walk down three flights of stairs and let it outside.

What is your favourite book from your childhood?

Hmm.. I think Charlotte's Web. But I also liked that Dr. Suess book, called My Book About Me.

Can you sew?

I don't technically know how to sew, but I pretend that I do. I've tried to fix rips and holes and stuff, but it usually falls apart!

Aimeee!


What does your favorite piece of jewelry look like?

My favorite piece is my engagement ring. It's small, but I like it that way. It's very simple and pretty. I'm not a big diamond girl.


Kickin' around the house: Shoes, sandals, slippers, socks, or barefoot?

Barefoot, unless it's chilly. Then I like knee-high socks!

What's your favorite kind of music?

Classical. I like piano music and strings.

What kind(s) of movies do you like best? Do you have any favorite three-hanky weepers?

I don't watch movies often, but when I do, they're usually romantic comedies or dramas. I also love movies that make you think. I'm cool with action movies, but they're not my favorite. The only movies I can think of that make me cry are The Love Letter (Hallmark movie) and sometimes Disney movies. Yes, I cry when watching Disney movies. People say The Notebook is a tear-jerker, but I haven't seen it yet.

What's your idea of a nice, romantic evening with your SO?

We can always enjoy an evening at home, but I looove a night out on the town, eating dinner at Zenith and listening to the Symphony. I love dressing up and going out for a "date."


What kind of lunch would you pack for a picnic in the park with him?

Hmm... back in high school we used to have "Subway picnics" at the park, so I'd probably try to recreate that for fun! Yves "turkey" sandwiches with Vegenaise and all the veggie fixings, a huge fruit salad, some potato chips, and two wine glasses filled with sparkling apple cider. That was our tradition.


Are there any pets in your life?

YES!! Gerbils! My babies!! Amadeus and Milton, named after Mozart and Friedman. They are the most precious little things you have ever seen (unless, of course, you have little furbabies of your own.
). I love them with my entire heart. They seemed so miserable in their little home in the store where I found them. They were the only gerbils there, and they seemed really sad and lonely. Now they seem happier, more active, (and mischievous at times!), and although they aren't "free," I am happy that I was able to give them a much better, larger, safer, and cleaner home than what they had.

How you do REALLY feel about the Amish?

I don't know a lot about them, despite growing up practically next to their farms. They always seemed quiet but friendly. Sometimes I would see them in Walmart (they even have horse stables in the parking lot!) and wonder what it's like for them to come into "our world." Even though they are a big part of our culture, they are still pretty isolated, even where I am from.

What's the first concert you evey went to?

My first and only concert was... the Spice Girls. I was only 11 years old, give me a break!


What's the first album/cd you ever bought?

That's really hard to remember. The first one I bought was probably a country music CD, because that's what I listened to until I discovered teenybopper music. I was memorizing country music songs when I was 3 - I'd sing them to customers in my Grandma's and Grandpa's craft store.


If you could have any other person's voice, at least to play around with, whose would it be?

Good question! Janis Joplin - her singing style and voice is beautiful! I like singing her cover of Me and Bobby McGee.

What is your favorite ethnic cuisine?

I'm not very cultured when it comes to food... but I've always liked Mexican and Italian food.

Hard pretzels or soft pretzels? With or without mustard?

Did you ask this just to tease me because I've never tried mustard before?
Soft pretzels, without mustard.

Pirates or ninjas?

Don't make me choose!! I'll go with pirates, because I have a really cool pirate friend, and I don't want her to stab me.


If somebody gave you two free tickets to any sporting event anywhere in the world held at any time during the year, what event would you want that to be?

I'm not big on sports. I've never seen badminton played outside of middle school gym class, so I would pick the IBF World Championships. hehe It'd be cool to see people play hardcore badminton.

Lemonade, limeade or orangeade?

I love lemonade! I've never tried limeade, and orangeade is alright.

What's your favorite fattening food?

French fries!!!!!!

Hi isowish!!


Who is a better cook, you or your SO?

I think I am. He has a hard time keeping things from burning sometimes.


Re: the answer to the last question - would he gave the same answer?

He would probably answer the same. hehe

What is your favourite TV show?

Seinfeld and Desperate Housewives are tied!

Are you going to dress up for halloween?

No, but I want to!!!!!!! I don't have money for a costume or anywhere to go. But if I could dress up, I would probably be a 70s girl, a Greek goddess, or to keep up with the current events, a U.S. border security officer.
Sexy costumes are so tacky, but they'd be fun.
