Get To Know Me!

1. Are you named after anyone?


Not really.  I was supposed to be a boy (Timothy James) but surprised everyone.  I was unnamed for my first five days until my mother saw the name of an actress in the credits for her favorite daytime soap opera.  And there is was Ashley Dee (middle name comes from my Mom as well, D for tax deduction is the running joke in the family!).

2. When was the last time you cried?


Memorial Day.  I lost a close friend in Iraq back in 2007 and seeing him all over Facebook in memorial posts just got to me.

3. Do you have kids? 


Nope.  But I have two fur-babies.  Annabel and Raven, both eight week old kitties.

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?


I should like to think so.  I think I am pretty likable but I am also quite shy so meeting new people has always been tough.

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?


Generally no, but under the right circumstances it can happen.  I tend to be more straight forward.  If I get sarcastic it is usually because I am really annoyed.

6. Will you ever bungee-jump?


The jury is out.  I don't know if I can trust my life to a giant rubber band but if you get me drunk enough it's possible.

7. What’s your favorite cereal?


Cap't Crunch WITH berries.  Just doesn't make sense without the berries.

8. What’s the first thing you notice about people?


Their eyes or smile.  That can tell you a lot about a person.

9. What is your eye color?



10. Scary movie or happy endings?


Scary movie, definitely

11. Favorite smells?


Grass just after it rains.  Smell of a home-cooked meal.

12. Summer or winter?



13. Computer or television?


Computer most days.  But with Netflix it's all really the same now.

14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?


I traveled to Japan in 2005.  It was an awesome experience.  I hope to travel more in the coming years as well.

15. Do you have any special talents?


I'm told I can sing.

16. Where were you born?


Tacoma, Washington (the state, not DC)

17. What are your hobbies?


Reading (duh), cooking, photography

18. Do you have any pets?


Annabel and Raven

19. Favorite movie?


Boondock Saints with Willem Dafoe, Norman Reedus, Billy Connolly, Sean Patrick Flanery, and David Della Rocco

20. Do you have any siblings?


Older sister, Tiana.  Younger sister, Elizabeth.  Two step-brothers CJ and Danny. 

21. What do you want to be when you grow up?


I'll let you know when I figure that out.
