WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Yes. I was named for my mother's sister, who was also my godmother. She passed away about a month after I was born.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
I don't remember which is very odd because I tend to get weepy easily. Oooh, oooh, oooh... I remember now, but... it's kind of private. Sorry!
DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
Eh. It's OK.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
Super thin-sliced smoked turkey breast.
DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Four terrific ones! Bookend boys and a double girl sandwich.
IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
I hope so.
DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Yes, but I am not proud of it.
DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
No. As my Papa use to say "Why would you jump from a perfectly good, working bridge?"
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
Fruity Pebbles were my favorite childhood cereal. Nowadays it's Raisin Bran with milk or hot oat bran with butter, salt and pepper.
DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
Not unless I have to.
DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
I know that I am. I have excellent musculature which depresses me every time I look at some cute little outfit in a magazine. Even if I was at my ideal weight, I won't ever be considered "petite".
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Voice and eyes.
RED OR PINK?
Depends on the shade, but mostly red.
WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
Navy blue workout pants and barefoot.
WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
It was Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix book narrated by Jim Dale until I paused it to listen to Sunshine read BigBoy a story before he settles down for a *nap. I could pretend it was a classic like Peter Rabbit or one of Tomie DePaola's Bible Stories and no one would ever know. Nope. It was Scooby Doo and the Case of the Missing Scooby Snacks. But she did some awfully cute voices! And now she is tucking him in. So sweet! If I could just get her to change diapers...
IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
Brown. Brown eyes, brown hair, brown skin. Brown.
Cinnamon, gardenia, peppermint (although, not mixed together)
WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
"Are you ready for some FOOTBALL?"
Brown like chocolate.
DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
Depends on the season. Right now? Watermelon.
SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
Happy endings. Can't watch scary movies.
LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
Sense and Sensibility
WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
SUMMER OR WINTER?
I'm with Dawn...winter all the way!
HUGS OR KISSES?
WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
Faro's Daughter by Georgette Heyer. A friend gave it to me oh-so-long ago and I am just now reading it (ducking!).
WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?
Don't have one.
WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON T.V. LAST NIGHT?
Right now? Sunshine reading Scooby-Doo and the Case of the Disappearing Scooby Snacks to BigBoy but usually, it is the belly laughs of my kids that only their Daddy can tickle out of them.
ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
Greece or Prague. I am terrible at geography.
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
Decorating cakes, or so I've been told.
WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
In a hospital in Texas that doesn't exist anymore.
*BigBoy doesn't take naps at 8 o'clock in the morning. I typed this up yesterday afternoon.
Though I would much prefer sharing these biographical bits over a long, lingering cup of coffee (and perhaps a shared piece of something), I very much enjoyed them, just the same.ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend, Honey.
PS. The Beatles, definitely!
