THROUGH THE PORTAL with Krissi: Part II - The Personal Questions
What’s your favorite color?
Do you speak another language other than english?
Spanish - a little.
If you could have any super power in the world, what would it be?
To control the Wind into making me fly!
Who’s your favorite actor/actress?
I so cannot answer this - I have too many favorites. I have always loved Christian Bale, (ever seen Newsies?) but I was not a fan of his recent emotional outburst on the set of Terminator. (Must be a Pyra.) I do love that Zac Efron kid. He acts, sings, dances ... so much fun to watch!! And I think Reese Witherspoon is a doll. I would want her to play me in movie about me. :) She'd make me much cuter.
HOW DO YOU CHOOSE ONE? I have to plug Project H - my friend's band and the band that allowed me to use their music for my book trailer. They're amazing! Check them out at myspace.com/ProjectHBand - they'll be big someday soon. As for what's pop right now - any rock alternative band with good melodies I can sing and jam along with. Nickelback, Red, Skillet, Paramore, Lesley Roy, Daughtry ... the list keeps going.
Favorite book? (Besides Phantom Island, of course!)
I love Harry Potter books and can reread them all the time and they never get old. And of course, thanks to Sarah, I was a part of the original Twilight bandwagon... recently I've been reading the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan (FUN STUFF!) and the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter - I so want to be a spy girl genius!! Those are my top picks right now.
What’s your hometown?
San Antonio, Texas - home of the Alamo, baby. (And the delicious Alamo Cafe.)
If you received $10,000,000 what would you do with it?
Spend it on people who NEED it. Right now, my needs are taken care of. There are a lot of people in slavery in other countries right now who need rescuing. (Check out the International Justice Mission, who is taking some amazing strides in this area - www.ijm.org) Sam and I also feel very burdened about people who do not have good drinking water across the world - this is a huge problem and something we care about. There are so many worthy causes that need the support - I cannot possibly dream of spending that much money on myself. Although, I do wish to someday take complete care of my mom and her expenses for all the sacrifices she has made for me in my life...
What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
At the grocery story? Vanilla bean ... with rainbow sprinkles.
At Marble Slab? Cheesecake ... with rainbow sprinkles. (Rainbow sprinkles make the whole world better.)
Do you sing in the shower?
Actually, no. I sing everywhere else. But I cannot adequately support my vocals when washing my hair. And my acoustics aren't that great in the shower - can't control pitch very well in there.
If you were stranded on a desert island and you could only take one thing, what would it be?
Lotion - I have really dry skin that would drive me nuts.
Favorite Starbucks drink?
Vanilla Bean Frappuccino
Where did you get the names for your dogs, Elphie and Luna?
Elphaba is named after the heroine in the Broadway show, Wicked - she is strong and pure-hearted, and it seemed like the right name for our firstborn Yorkie. Luna is named after quirky, endearing Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter series - one of my favorite characters! (And Sarah is her godmother.)
Favorite clothing store?
Ann Taylor. And, of course, the endless supply of t-shirts that we make for our ministry, school, and now Phantom.
Do you like cats?
Where did you go to college?
Oklahoma Baptist University - GO WITH KA-RIP!
Favorite Broadway musical?
Wicked!! But I also love the classics, too, like Phantom of the Opera.
Do you have any siblings?
Yes- I have a younger brother named Kevin. He's a Geo who towers over me at 6'4'' with blond hair and blue eyes. I'm very proud of my lil bro.
Did you enjoy the new Star Trek movie, or have you not seen it?
Yes!! I think I am now a J.J. Abrams version of a Trekkie.
What’s your favorite movie? Does the story line look lame next to Phantom Island: Wind?
Again, HOW DO YOU PICK??? I'll tell you the ones I never get tired of ... Harry Potter movies, Lord of the Rings movies, Pirates of the Caribbean movies, Shrek movies... all entertaining and fun. And no, those are not lame story lines!
