11. What is your favorite sport to watch? whichever has the cutest guys wearing the smallest outfits.
12. Have you ever dyed your hair? pretty regularly until I was 30, when I had this great idea of starting the new decade of my life by bleaching my brown hair platinum and putting blue streaks in it. Even though I had it professionally done, it needed four separate bleaching applications to get it light enough and it left my scalp terribly blistered and my hair in absolutely awful shape. Once the roots became really noticeable, I dyed it back to my natural color and haven't dyed it too often since then.
