Five Question Friday on a Tuesday

Filed under: Five Question Friday — Amy @ 6:05 am


1. If you had a weekly newspaper column, what would you name it?

I think I’d probably go with “…and THAT’S How I Roll.”

2. Who is your mentor/inspiration?

It would depend on of what aspect of my life you are speaking.

In general, though, I am inspired by those who don’t take themselves too seriously and enjoy their lives.  Who embrace their inner awesome at all times.

3. What is your wake up beverage of choice?

Decaf tea.
Doesn’t help you “wake up” but there’s nothing like it in the morning!
4. Would you wear your mom’s clothes?


Sorry, Mom.

She knows we don’t share style sense.

It’s all good.

5. When you were a kid, did you put posters on your wall? If so, what were they of?

My posters were all out of Tiger Beat or Teen Beat or Young Miss, etc.  I devoured those magazines, and seemed to have passed that on to Monkey Girl.

My earliest poster was Shaun Cassidy.  I covered it in kiss marks.  Then the 80’s rolled around…

Jon Bon Jovi

Kirk Cameron

Michael J. Fox

Scott Baio…cuz Chachi really loved me.

A big, huge one of Dolph Lundgren…you know, the Russian who fought Rocky and said “I will break you.”  I thought he was SO hot.  Now I see him and I’m like “Really, Amy?  Really?”

Hindsight.  20/20 and all that.

Ricky Schroeder…sorry, the Ricker…sorry, Rick Schroeder, sorry…the has been.

Rob Lowe…St. Elmo’s Fire, that saxophone…Lord, have mercy!

Corey Haim…RIP…Lost Boys, Goonies…loved him.

Christopher Atkins…the dude from the Blue Lagoon which I was way too young to see, but we had HBO and I was a latchkey kid for awhile and HBO wasn’t always thinking when they put their “R” movies on.

Donnie Wahlberg.  Loved those New Kids…if you know my friend, Kim, ask her to do the New Kids dance for you.  She used to totally rock it in her basement. With regards to Donnie, though, I would soon trade him for his bro, “Marky” Mark Wahlberg, and never look back.

Oh, and the guy from 16 Candles…Jake Ryan…who never really did anything else, but that was fine with me because I was left with the image of him leaning against his car saying “Yeah you.”

Because, he was talking to me…you know that, right?  He was talking directly to me.


  1. Thanks for the props. I worked hard on that one.

  3. From Wikipedia:

    Schoeffling never duplicated the success of Sixteen Candles, and in various magazine and newspaper interviews stated the lack of roles and a growing family to feed were his reasons for retiring from acting. He now lives with his wife, Valerie L. Robinson of Virginia, also a former model, and their two teenage children Scarlet and Zane, in Newfoundland, Pennsylvania, producing handcrafted furniture as the owner of a woodworking shop.
