A meme since I can't think of anything to write about

Are you taller than your mother?
Maybe by 1/2 an inch. Actually since she was cremated, I'm quite taller than her.

What color is your car?
White. It would probably be my last choice of color, but when you have to get a used car, you don't have much choice.

If you instantly become qualified for any profession, what would you do?
Work as a music librarian for a major university.

What is your ring-tone?
Mozart's symphony # 25 in G minor

Is there an animal that creeps you out?
If we're talking of the mammal persuasion, I can't think of anything. But I hate all kinds of creepy crawly bugs especially roaches.

The last person you rode an elevator with?
I can't remember the last time I was in an elevator. Probably with one of my students during a speech tournament trip.

Did you go ice skating as a kid?
Yes, once. We had a pond that actually froze over enough for ice skating once. It was fun. I've done it as an adult and it's exhausting and hurts my ankles.

Last person you had an argument with.
Probably Marty though I'm not sure we ever had a full blown argument - but that was about 3 years ago.

Ever have stitches?
Yes... 104 in my life. (3 behind my ear when I ripped it after getting it stuck in a cabinet when I was 2. 20 in my head when I fell off a slide when I was 3. 80 in my neck when I broke my neck when I was 4. And one is a private spot after giving birth.)

Favorite non alcoholic drink?
Coke - the real stuff. No diet for me.

How long ago did you kiss someone?
Do I really have to answer this? About two years ago.

Ever caught something on fire?
Yes. When I was little, I caught the popcorn popper on fire after I forgot about it.

Ever seen the northern lights?
Not yet.

Would you be a surrogate mother, carry a baby for someone else?

Ever been in a fight?
Physical? Yes, when I was about 7 I think. Verbal - many times with my ex-husband.

Wearing nail polish?
Only on my toenails. I can't keep it on fingernails.

Innie or outie?

Ever used a Ouija board?

Sweet or sour?
Sweet usually.. but sour is o.k. too.

Sun or Moon?

What shoes did you wear today?
I have yet to put on shoes. Ahhh the joys of vacation!

Favorite eye color of the opposite sex?

Most important quality in a relationship.
Friendship and trust.

Nap today?
Maybe. It's too early to decide.

Time of day that you were born?
9:42 p.m.

Do you know your blood type?
A- The only reason I know this is because I had to have a shot due to the Rh factor after having Josh who was born A+

Name something annoying about public transit?
The only time I used it was in Vegas so the only thing I can say about it is that you have to pay each time you get on. It also causes a lot of pollution.

Did you grow up in a city or in the country?
I was born in a small town, then moved to a small city, then spent most of my junior high/high school time in what I call "the middle of nowhere" country. Now I'm back in a small town.

Consider going on a reality show for a large amount of money?
As long as I would have to eat something gross like bugs so I guess Survivor is out. I'm with Susan... I'd rather be on a game show. (I did try to get on the Price is Right once but didn't get called to "come on down")

Flown in your dreams?

Whats the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
Probably alligator. Tastes like shrimp textured chicken as best as I recall.

Hugs or kisses?
Either. I mostly get hugs lately, but wouldn't mind a nice kiss again.

What was the best night out of your life? Lurid details please!
When I was confirmed in the Catholic church on Easter Vigil 2006. You can read about it here.

Whats your favourite item of clothing?
I don't know that I have a single favorite. Maybe my coaster freak t-shirt.

What form of dancing are you best (or worse) at?
I don't dance much. I guess I'm pretty good at the Time Warp. I'm not so good a two-stepping.

Would you at any time of your life have done playboy for a million?

Gold or silver?
Silver most of the time.

If you joined the circus, what would you be?
I have no idea. Maybe the announcer.

Do you have a criminal record?
Not that I'm aware of.

What item of make-up can you not live with out?
I could go without, but I often feel I need lipstick even though it never lasts.

Slurpee flavor?
I can't remember the last time I had a slurpee. I guess I would say blue coconut.

What is "slurpee"? Sounds ... strange.

Slurpee is a frozen slushee drink that comes in the original cherry flavor, or soda flavor, or crazy flavors like blue coconut. :) Loved this post today!

Wuhahahaaa ... thank you abbagirl74:

"Slurpee is a frozen slushee drink"


explains it exhaustively! It is this stuff in long plastic "sausages" you rip open on one side and than slurp the flavored ice, yes? We called it "water ice (Wasser-Eis)" or "plastic ice".

You would make an awesome music librarian. I know you've talked about it before, but have you thought of going back to school when Josh goes off to college? Anyways, I enjoyed reading this. I feel horrible today and this took my minds off of what ails me.

I love learning new things about you. My favorite slurpee is lime! An oldee for sure.
