Time for another Q and A...

I did a video a while back answering the questions that people ask me thru this blog or my YouTube Channel. I had been collecting new questions since then and was going to do another video but decided against it since I'm still a bit squeamish when it comes to the makeup thing and I don't want to appear in another video without my face on. Maybe next week Ill start on the Halloween stuff again but for right now, my face is kinda liking being able to breathe.

Anyway, here we go... your questions answered:

1) What's your real first name?

My real first name is really hard to pronounce if you don't hear it first (it's Norwegian) and so for the longest time I have just gone by my first initial which is E. My cousins call me E. My friends call me E. So for all intents and purposes, my first name is E.

2) Are you single?

Yes I am, but I'm not looking. My last relationship was really serious...or at least it was serious to me and it didn't work out...so I'm kind of hinky about pursuing something again.

3) Are you in the military?

HAHAHAHAHAH Nooo! (shakes my head adamantly) I would probably get kicked out of boot camp my first week for whining! This question came from my 20Qs video , but the shirt I was wearing and the dogtags I pulled from my desk were both given to me by a friend who is in the Navy.

3) What did you mean about having a weird body shape?

Again, a question from my 20Qs video...where I said something like my body shape is hard to dress or something. What I meant was I have a very unproportionate/unproportional body. Parts of me are larger than you would expect on somebody as short and little as I am. For the most part on videos all you can see is my shoulders, head, and neck and most people assume I'm your standard skinny little asian girl. Trust me, I'm not.

4) Do you have any kids?

Nope.

5) Where in California do you live?

I don't recall ever saying that I lived in California! In fact I'm pretty sure I've mentioned several times that I live in Seattle. Perhaps the asker of that question was confused by me mentioning that both my brother and best friend and multiple cousins and family members reside in Cali. I wish I did live there tho! It's getting downright cold and nasty here in the Pacific Northwest!

6) Can I join your fantasy football league?

Yeah I'd love for you to join my league except you're about 4 weeks late...so let me know before next season starts and I'll send you the info if you're still interested. P.S. I'm undeafeated so far 3-0. Awesome.

7) What is your accent?

Uhm I didn't think I had an accent so...you tell me! I was born in the Philippines and then moved to the United States when I was 9. But before that, I went to a Catholic School were 2 out of every 5 nun-teachers were British. I don't think I have a Filipino accent but maybe I do, I don't know. Maybe a West Coast/Pacific Northwest Accent mixed with a Filipino twang and infused with a slight British-nun flavor for good measure? LOL!

8) Your brothers don't look anything like you...are they Chinese or Mexican?

Ok...at first I was like "wow, really?" at the person who asked this. But then I thought about it, and it's true we could all be adopted and be different ethnicities. Here's the deal, the premier bro-han and I are both 3/4 Filipino and 1/4 Chinese. The reason he looks so much darker and Chinese-ier than I do is because he lives in California where he actually sees the sun. (and probably because I try my best to stay out of the sun as much as possible...no reason to look old and wrinkly before I'm actually old and wrinkly eh?) The youngest bro-han is our half brother who is 3/4 Filipino, 1/4 Spanish. We look the most alike because we both live in Seattle and are pale from lack of tanning oportunities. None of us really look like each other until we smile...in which case we all have our mother's smile and in most cases her dimple as well!

9) "your f-in hot, wanna meet up?"

NO.

10) How can you be scared of heights and yet have pictures of people standing below you in [lighthouse] steps?

This was a question from my vacation videos. Those pics were not from my camera, they were from my brother's. He took the pictures and I stole them from him. The closest I came to either the Astoria Observation Tower and the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse was about 50 yards from the entrance! :)

Ok all, keep those questions coming. I think Scope over yonder at Scope-Tech is doing the same thing for his 300th post so go snoop around and ask him stuff too!

You're welcome to California any time, dear! And I don't think you have an accent. Believe me, living in So. Cal., I know what a(n Asian) accent sounds like. ; )

Scope said...

Year ago I worked with a gal who I assumed had a lisp. 10 years later, I'm at a bar with a bunch of people, and she mentions that she has had a southern accent.

Wierdest damn southern accent I ever heard.

Thanks for the link, now, do you have any questions that I can answer?

I'm fascinated by the 3/4 Filipino and 1/4 Chinese girl being given a Norwegian first name. Or where you just joking there?

SkylersDad said...

That is weird, I had your accent pegged as a combination of Dansk and that clicking language from Central Africa! ;^)

Dr Zibbs said...

Are you in the military?

~E said...

J.J: I didn't think I had an accent either. I went over my old videos before I answered that question and still can't hear an accent!

Scope: I'm compiling a list to ask you!

BE Earl: Nope...my first name is the name of a town in Vestretotten (say that 5 times fast) Norway.

SkylersDad: It's not Dansk...it's Norwegian! And that clicking you hear is my tongue ring against my teeth...good catch tho! ;)

Dr. Zibbs: Yes...God's Army! :)

words...words...words... said...

I had hoped for a more polite answer when I sent you the classily worded question #9.

Sid said...

LOL! My dear you're hilarious. I love your reply to the person who complimented you and asked if you want to meet up.

Well shit, I'm here too late! I had a question!:
In what year will we discover that Michael Jackson and Elvis are really alive and living together in Bombay while making cockleshell dolls together?

Cora said...

Pffft! I never noticed an accent on you. Of course, I'm from Seattle as well and my parents are British, so maybe I have it too?

;-)

Chinese-ier. Most awesome adjective ever!

(But you are f-in hot. In a Chinese-ier kind of way.)
