Melissa's response..

1.  Although my name literally translates from Greek as "honeybee" I'm absolutely terrified of bees.
2.  I think I have an obsessive personality.  I have a stash of over 200 polishes that I keep on a specially made shelf so I can see them every day (instead of keeping them in a Helmer.  10 years ago I was a scrapbooker and stashed scrapbooking supplies, paper and tools.
3.  I'm an animal lover.  I love all furries, big and small.
  I collect fairies.
  I'm a gamer chick nerd.  I have played online role playing games for years.
  I used to be an aspiring body builder, but I lacked the discipline to follow the rigorous diet.
  My daughter is the light of my life.

Amanda's response...

1. In high school, I was part of my school's color guard (the people who spin flags etc for those of you who don't know ;] ). I spun flag, rifle AND sabre! Rifle was my favorite, and I hated sabre with a passion.
2. Ever since I was little, I've collected cow stuffed animals and figurines. No idea why -- one day my friend and I decided we'd like cows I guess. :)
3. The person responsible for my obsession with nail polish and nail art is the girl that runs Fuck Yeah Pretty Nails. One day I randomly stumbled upon that Tumblr and from then on I was hooked. I think I had about 5 polishes (all old, crappy ones of course) and my beginning nail art was atrocious.
4. I still have my brother and I's old n64 and yes, I DO still play on it. I play childish platformer games on it like Donkey Kong and Banjo Kazooie. Takes me back to when I was 12 :) I also race a MEAN Mario Kart, if you must know. ;)
5. I've lived in the same house, in the same city in the same state since I was 3. I'm 22 now!
6. I do my nails multiple times a week, but only paint my toenails once every month or 6 weeks. Also I suck at it; it looks like a 5 year old painted my toenails!
7. My dream job would be to do marketing and promotions for some kind of polish or cosmetic company. I majored in advertising and marketing in college. I graduated in May and am still looking for full-time employment!
