Reading everyone's responses is so interesting! I'm feeling kind of lousy today, so reading through this thread is a nice diversion. :) Anyway, here are my answers:
1. What are your favorite colors? tiffany blue, aquamarine, violet (deep blueish purple), and black
2. What's your favorite candy? Ooh, I adore candy! I'm vegan but that doesn't stop me from eating candy. :) I love Sour Patch Kids, Twizzlers, Blow Pops (green apple especially!), Mary Janes, Life Savers (tropical and 5 flavor), I could go on, but that seems like a lot already. :)  Favorite chocolate? Junior Mints, definitely. 
3. What's your favorite holiday? I love holidays in general, so it's hard to choose. I love Xmas and Thanksgiving, I love Halloween, Lunar New Year, and Valentine's Day. I don't do Easter, but the Buddha's birthday is right around the same time and is springtime-ish, life affirming, and all that. :)
4. What's your favorite weekend activity? Hanging out with my husband and/or my best friend. Chatting, watching something funny together like a Riff Tracks movie or MST3K. Just being around each other. Crafting together (Scott does Marquetry and I scrapbook/stamp so we share a craft room. :))
5. Favorite fast food restaurant? Subway and Panera
6. Favorite non-fast food restaurant? Most are local so I don't know if they'll ring any bells for my Secret Sister...I love Gringo-a-Go Go (not only do I get to enjoy their burritos, but they sell tiny tacos with just the vegan "chicken" inside just for dogs. Jinkasaurus thinks this is the greatest thing *ever*. :) Then there's Lilly's Pizza, Fiction Kitchen, Neomonde (Middle Eastern food--the best! :)), Udupi Cafe...Raleigh has *great* food. As far as chains go, I love the veggie burgers at Red Robin and Z Pizza has very yummy pizzas, Now I am hungry. 
7. Favorite television show? Bob's Burgers, Bojack Horseman (Netflix), Antiques Roadshow, Law and Order
8. Favorite genre of books?  I love to read so that's hard to answer! True crime, horror, literary fiction, cozy mysteries, non-fiction on animal behavior and health, history books--especially about the 19th century, poetry of course, and more. Favorite author? So hard to say. Maybe William Somerset Maugham, maybe John Irving or Margaret Atwood. I also love Richard Brautigan and so many more.
9. Do you like candles? Yes yes yes! I have candles burning almost every day. If so, what kind of scents do you like best? Violet, Lilly of the Valley, and yummy food scents, especially spicy things like pumpkin pie
10. Favorite lotion scents? Pretty much the same as the candle ones, though if you want something specific, I love coconut scented (you know, that suntan lotion smell! :)), Satsuma from the Body Shop, Fresh Sparkling Snow from Bath and Body Works
11. Do you collect anything? Holiday Inn and other vintage hotel/motel stationery/postcards/memorabilia
12. Have any pets? Yes yes yes! I have a chihuahua named Jinkasaurus Rex, a cat named Violet, 2 degus named Trident and Bubblicia, a mouse named Dentina, two turtles--Walter and Jebediah, plus I am fostering a pair of rats we just picked up from the rescue the other day so we haven't named them yet. They're so cute though. Black and white hoodeds. All of our animals are rescues (I've been doing rescue and other animal related work most of my adult life) and we are hoping to adopt a pair of cats some time this year. 
13. Favorite snack while scrapbooking? Cereal. I love Cinnamon Frosted Flakes and Life Cereal. Oooh and Peanut Butter Captain Crunch. Just for snacks, though. They're too sweet and overpowering for breakfast. 
14. Do you have a special place to scrapbook or do you take over somewhere in the house (dining room table, bed??)  I'm lucky to have a scrap room. :) I kind of craft all over though.
15. What type of music do you like?  Punk rock (old school), honky tonk, dixieland jazz, romany music, nerdcore rap, old timey 1920's stuff, and so on
16. Do you enjoy sports? Playing or watching? Favorite teams? Nope nope and nope. I was that kid that always tried to get out of P.E. though I didn't mind hockey so much and played it with the guys in the nearby dorm at college
17. Early bird or night owl? Night owl, totally. I go to sleep around 1-2 a.m. and it's probably the earliest I've gone to sleep regularly as an adult. Plus my chronic pain makes mornings very difficult.
18. Favorite season?  Autumn and Winter
19. Favorite animal?  Rat
20. Do you enjoy coffee? Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf or somewhere different? Make it at home? Keurig or something similar?  I loooove coffee. Starbucks is the treat I give myself for making it through another awful doctor visit. (My doctor is actually quite competent. It's just...ugh.) I love all kinds of drinks...cinnamon dolce soy lattes, chai soy lattes, occasionally a vegan frappacino or whatever those frozen things are. So yum! I also have a Keurig at home that I love to use. They make a cinnamon dolce Starbucks pod that doesn't have milk in it and it's great! I love flavored coffees and cider pods, and chai tea. Yum.
21.  Hot Cocoa? Hot tea?  Hot Cocoa if it's vegan and tea anytime! I love all kinds of tea *except* rooibos, which I think tastes like wet pipe tobacco probably tastes like. Gross!
22. Do you enjoy the "adult" coloring books? Yes! So much!
23. Favorite store other than crafty/scrappy store? Bookstore. :)
24.  Favorite way to relax? Fire in the fireplace, snuggly dog, great book. 
25.  Anything you absolutely detest? Ted Nugent?
26.  Other hobbies? Reading, writing letters, writing for real (that's what I "do". :)), stitchery (nothing fancy), journaling, plannering, etc.

Anything else you would like to add? Looking forward to this year's Secret Sisterhood! :) I can't wait!
