the niche: who am I?

The amazing Leslie of LeslieIRL posted an awesome list of questions for writers to find their niche.  What a perfect way for me to introduce myself to you and do a little self-discovery at the same time!  Thanks, Leslie!  You get 20 brilliance points for this one!  
And awaaaay we go.....  

1. What is one of your favorite words, that you have never heard any one else that you know of describe themselves as?
Peachy.  I know other people say it, but it's my favorite "how are you?" response.  It makes me happy.

2. If someone was to search for your blog in Google, and you could rank on the first page for 5 keywords, what would they be?
Geekery.  Random.  Awesome.  Unicorns. Happiness. 

3. What is your favorite adjective? Especially one to describe the way a person is.
Awesome.  I know i use it too much.  It's not original....I just love it.

4. Think of your favorite movie character, comic book character, or cartoon character, that you self-identity with. What are a couple of words you would use to describe their personality? What color would you describe them as?
I absolutely love Wonder Woman.  She is super-awesome, fiery and brave.  She does what she wants.  Her color is definitely red.

5. What color are you?
I am yellow.  Happy & bright, yet not everyone's favorite. haha.  

6. What are you the most knowledgeable about? What would other people say you are the most knowledgeable about? When is the last time you went on a really good rant about something?
Music & useless pop culture information.  Other people would probably say music.  My brain is full of music trivia and info.  It's my "thang."  It's been a while since I had a really good rant.... I think I'm due.  

7. If you had to design a business card right now, and could only have 3 words on it, what would those words be?
Awesome. Random. Geekery.

Wonder Woman t-shirt. Sunglasses. Toms.   

10. If you could collaborate with any blogger, artist, or person, who would it be, and what would you bring to their table? friend, Andy Van Engen, is a pretty sweet graphic designer.  I would provide never-ending kazoo solos & piles of easy mac to work with that guy to create something awesome.  Also, to work musically with the guys from Knox Hamilton.  Oh yeah.  

11. Pick a tagline for yourself. Or a few. 10 words total, for your identity, and niche.
Mayor of Awesometown. Unicorn tamer. & just plain rowdy.
