The Shameful Sheep posted a set of questions that are pretty much just light and fun personal stuff. Since I can use some light and fun right now, I thought I’d do them. If you like substance in your blog reading, you might want to skip this one.
1. Who are you named after?
No idea. I think my parents just liked the name. My Mom can jump on the comments and correct that if there was somebody in particular.
2. Do you like your handwriting?
Only when I’m doing careful calligraphy. Otherwise it’s getting worse and worse as the years pass.
3. What is your favorite lunch meat?
Smoked turkey. Genoa salami is really good too, but not together with the turkey. Any lunch meat plus bacon is usually an improvement over the lunch meat alone.
4. Longest relationship?
Married 31 years now, so I think that wins.
5. Do you still have your tonsils?
No, and that’s been annoying lately. When I get a cold, and it progresses into the coughing stage at the end, the scars from the tonsillectomy itch and trigger uncontrollable coughing fits even when I have no other need to cough. It will wake me up at night until I spray enough Chloraseptic on it to numb it out. I had a coughing fit happen in the middle of a recording session once. Ack!
6. Would you bungee jump?
Nope. Why would I need to seek out extra danger and excitement when I drive on the highway every day?
7. Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
I’ve been wearing slip-ons lately, so not relevant.
8. Favorite ice cream?
Vanilla with chocolate/peanut butter/caramel/toffee stuff in it. Nothing with walnuts, pecans, or coffee please.
9. What is the first thing you notice about people?
Hadn’t really thought about it. I’m not very good with faces, so I guess I notice hair because it’s more distinctive. I also notice if they are wearing something that tells me I may not want to engage in much conversation with them, like a big religious symbol, lots of piercings, a power balance bracelet, or a “Make America Great Again” hat. Oh, and if they are wearing too much perfume, that’s the first thing I notice, and also the last thing, and everything in between. If your smell hangs around after you leave, you’re overdoing it.
10. Football or baseball?
Sports? I can put up with baseball, I guess. If I can bring something to read.
11. What color pants are you wearing?
Black. I have at least five pairs of black pants. Bright colors are for shirts.
12. Last thing you ate?
SweetTarts jellybeans. Really. Jellybeans are one of my guilty pleasures, and while Jelly Bellies and Starburst jelly beans are good, by far the best are the ones from SweetTarts. And you can only get them around Easter.
13. If you were a crayon what color would you be?
Probably the broken one at the bottom of the box, of some color you can’t really identify.
14. Favorite smell?
Cardamom. Cloves. Plumeria flowers. Lemon Verbena. I don’t think all of those at once would work, though.
15. Who was the last person you spoke to on the phone?
My boss. Boring.
16. Hair color?
17. Eye color?
Blue! Really blue, which kind of makes up for my boring haircolor.
18. Favorite foods to eat?
I get on kicks where I binge on something a lot for awhile. When I was pregnant it was tacos. Sometimes it’s caramel corn. Right now it’s marshmallow treats, but I make them with way more cereal than the recipe calls for, so they don’t come out sticky.
19. Scary movies or happy endings?
Either one, as long as the movie is good.
20. Last movie you watched?
Big Hero 6. And before that Finding Dory. Both really fun. A well-made kids movie beats a sucky grown-up one any day.
21. Favorite holiday?
Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19). And Halloween, because there’s not a lot of overt religiosity mixed up in the celebration, and I don’t have to cook a big meal either.
22. Beer or wine?
Cider! But not too much, please.
23. Night owl or early bird?
I prefer to be a night owl, but that was hard for the years when I had to wake the kids up for school at the crack of dawn. They’re older now, so no more of that. I can function in the morning if I’ve had a good amount of sleep and some caffeine.
24. Favorite day of the week?
Saturday – I can sleep in, and stay up late and not worry about it.
25: Which three of your favorite bloggers do you want to know more about?
They’ll talk if they want to, no need to ask anybody.
