Ask Me Anything!

Today is a very good day to be a reader of my blog because today, I'm bringing some fun and games to Just the Elevator Pitch. (Assuming, of course, you have somewhat of a loose interpretation of the word "games." And really, "fun" too for that matter.)

The game is called "Ask Me Anything!" 

The rules are simple: you can say anything to me, as long as it is a question. And the fun part is that in about a week, I will post all of the answers to ANYTHING you ask. Literally, anything. (Except, of course, if the answer will be illegal, immoral, or just a little too stupid.)

Now, although the rules are simple, I know that this game might be a little difficult (as simple things sometimes are). I mean, what do you ask a blogger that she hasn't already written a 500 word post about?

So instead of just sending you off without any direction, here are a few "sample" questions (and answers) that should help you get going:

1. What do you consider to be the most annoying thing in the world?

Unnecessarily difficult CAPTCHAs

2. What do you think is the most overrated vegetable?

Sweet Potatoes. I do like sweet potatoes but I get a little ticked off with their superiority complex, like regular old Russet potatoes aren't good too. It's just not true.

3. How do you feel about redheads?

I actually don't think I've ever met a redhead I don't like, except Daphne from Scooby-Doo. She was a slut.

4. If God hired you as his personal assistant with access to his entire computer system, what would you do?

Well, first I would go and check out the records on the whole Garden of Eden incident. I'd like to know if things really went down the way people say they did. Then I would make a few minor adjustments to things, but nothing too serious so I wouldn't give myself away. You know, just take out the code for pimples and maybe shave a few calories off of the standard doughnut... stuff like that.

5. Who do you want to win the World Series?

The Giants. How can you not root for a guy who had to grow up with the name Bumgarner?

6. What is your morning internet routine?

First, always first, the Skimm. Then Bloglovin, Facebook, the Drudge Report, and my Gmail, although not always in that order. I like keeping things a little unpredictable.

7. Do you like deviled eggs?


8. What was the best birthday gift you ever received?

One year, my aunt got me a guinea pig that I named Popcorn. That is tied with this year, when Derrick got me this poster:

9. What is your favorite food group?


10. What is your favorite number?

I don't have one.


As you can see, this game is not really that difficult once you get into the swing of things. So, I'm just going to go ahead and let you guys have at it! Leave a comment with your question(s) or email me at justtheelevatorpitch@gmail.com. Also, if you'd like to ask me something anonymously, you can do that here and then pat yourself on the back for being a little bit sketchy.

They can be personal questions, questions about blogging, questions about DC, questions about running, or just general knowledge questions, like how to spell superfluous or how ketchup is made. The sky is really the limit here people!

Also, as a general disclaimer, if less than five people ask me questions, I will most likely delete this post and pretend like it never happened. Sort of like I do when no one likes my Instagram pictures. Because how embarrassing, am I right?
