Liebster Award, My Most Embarrassing Moment & More!

I've been nominated for a Liebster Award!  Yessica at The Push Up Bra gave me the kind nod, and I love her blog (can't wait for Part 2 of the story of Mr. Right Kind of Wrong!).  The Liebster Award is intended to help people discover new bloggers, and the rules for when you get nominated are:

1) Answer the questions sent to you
2) Nominate 11 bloggers
3) Ask them 11 questions thought of by yourself
4) Notify them that they have been nominated

First I'll answer the questions from Yessica:
1. What type of guy/girl are you attracted to?
This blog has been an exploration of that question!  I don't have one physical type, but one constant is tall dudes.  Fitness is important, not like six-pack abs but at least enjoys LA hiking.  I do like beardy dudes (and have been enjoying the blog Kissing Bearded Men), and I guess simply: tall, dark and handsome.  Creative, even if not professionally.  Kind, honest, easy-going.

2. What was your most embarrassing moment?
Uh, ever?  Probably in sixth grade, when a classmate found out who I had a crush on at lunch time and stood up at the lunch table and started shouting that information to the whole school.  I was mortified!  (My crush was in the same class as I was and was sitting just down the table from me.)  I was drinking a Capri Sun with my lunch, and started spraying the Capri Sun in the offending classmate's face until he stopped yelling.  I had to clean lunch tables, but it was totally worth it.

3. When and what was the last lie you told?
Hmm I try to lie as little as possible.  But at a party over the weekend, a girl I'd just met decided to show me a bunch of photos of the different colors her hair had been over the past few years (various shade of blonde and brunette).  I was about to tear my own hair out from boredom, but I think I told some lies about the photos being interesting.

4. What do you like best about yourself?
Buhhhh... that I'm very genuine and care for others.

5. What is your guilty pleasure?
Coconut Bliss ice cream, and watching The New Girl.

6. Is there anything you regret?
Hmmm.  I believe that everything teaches you something, so I have very few regrets.  There's have been a few times that I haven't respected my own boundaries/values and done things I regret, but I try to use those as lessons and reminders.

7. Do you believe in love?

8. If you could have a wish come true right now, what would it be?
To get financing for my first feature film and a reliable way to pay my rent.

9. Would you get back to your ex if you had the choice?
Ugh, today I plead the 5th.  On principle, I don't move backwards in life.

10. Do you still remember your first kiss?
Yes.  Technically I think my first kiss was during a game of spin the bottle but I decided that didn't count.  The one that counted was at Disneyland I think.  We dated for a bit, we're still Facebook friends. 

11. Do you remember your first crush?
I apparently had a "boyfriend" in pre-school.  Does that count?
