I wasn’t overly enticed by the SS that was on tap for today so I went back through the archives and found one I liked.
One of the reasons memes exist (as I understand it) is to find some new blog friends and to share a bit more about yourself on your own blog. I’m going to let you in on a peeve (which you probably already know about me). Ready? A one word answer to a question tells me almost nothing about you. For example, if the question is “Do you sleep in the nude?” and you say “No” that bothers me. I want to know why you don’t. Like, are you afraid that if there’s a fire in the middle of the night you’ll be caught running outside with nothing on in a frenzy (totally understandable reason, btw) or maybe your cat likes to lick your armpits and you have to cover them or else be licked in your sleep. (Incidentally, I wouldn’t mind having that occur but preferably by someone else besides my cat!) When I read memes, I look for the reasons why you are who you are. And perhaps that’s just my Psych major leaning. Perhaps others are just perfectly fine reading one word answers. However, if I ever do start answering these dumb questions with one word, know that my blog has been hijacked by someone much less concerned with those things (i.e.: most other people).
Herewith, I present my own personal stealage with more than one word answers (because I am picky like that):
What are your nicknames?
Believe it or not, “Dolt” is one of them. :-) It originated with a guy I liked back in the 90s (nicknamed “Hollinger” after the boyfriend of Ann Marie in “That Girl” so you can guess what his first name was) as a term of affection between us and I’ve used it that way since then. If *I* call you dolt, I really, really like you. If anyone else does, assume not the same.
What TV gameshow or reality show would you like to be on?
I have absolutely no compunction to be on television in any way, shape or form. But, if I had to choose, I’d be on “What Not to Wear” and hope that Stacey and Clinton won’t make me throw out my three David Cook t-shirts. I really, really need help clothing-wise.
What was the first movie you bought in VHS or DVD?
No idea – it was that long ago. However, I did see “Risky Business” about ten thousand times so I bet that was in the top three. To say I adored that movie is truly an understatement.
What is your favorite scent?
The only perfume I have worn on a regular basis is “Opium” – and usually the body lotion since it was softer. I prefer warm, spicy scents. Or, cookies. Also, fresh baked bread. So, what’s for breakfast???
If you had one million dollars to spend only on yourself, what would you spend it on?
I would ask to be placed in an assisted coma and put on an IV drip of sustenance. Wake me up in a month or so when I’ve lost all the weight I’ve managed to accumulate (plus bonus poundage!) and I shall re-enter society as a glamorous chick. Yes, that’s how I’d spend my money. How sad is that?
What is one place you’ve visited, can’t forget and want to go back to?
Italy. Hands down. Great food, friendly people, lots of stuff to see and do. I can’t wait to go back.
Do you trust easily?
Yes, unless a) you show me a reason not to and/or b) I get a wonky vibe about you right off. Then, no. There are people I would not trust for any reason whatsoever. Period. They could turn their life around and work every day to gain my trust (and, seriously, WTF?) and I would not trust them. Such is the case when you live by your intuition.
Do you generally think before you act, or act before you think?
In matters of a mental nature, I am definitely a thinker before act-er. Intutively, though, if I get the “nudge” to act, I don’t think it through or question it. I just do it. It’s better that way. My little monkey mind, especially when bored, can take any situation apart and look at it one hundred ways and then a hundred more and soon I am in a padded room singing songs about Elmo.
Is there anything that has made you unhappy these days?
Believe it or not, except for the poundage issue, I am pretty content in my own life of late. My woo-woo stuff is beginning to move forward, other stuff has assumed its rightful place in the background and that’s good.
In a larger sense, though, I really am concerned about the economy, those that are so hell-bent on manipulating people’s fear and emotions for their own benefit (oh hai insurance companies!) and the way things are playing out. I hate the Afghanistan/Pakistan situation and that more have to die in this stupid fucking mess. People are so scared about all of it. That makes me beyond unhappy. (How’s all that for a non-one-word answer?)
Do you have a good body image?
I shall refer you to an earlier question regarding what I’d do with a million dollars. I’ve NEVER had that. Ever. My mom had really major issues about hers and just passed that right on to me. At some point, I chose to own it and here I am, carrying them around of my own volition. I do have nice eyes and boobies, though.
What is your favorite fruit?
A good, juicy orange is tops in my book. Peaches, too. MMMM.
What websites do you visit daily?
Here’s my check-in list when I get to work: AskMeFi (love this site!), Balloon Juice political with a mix of dog and cat goofiness, DU (currently a swampland – I cannot wade into the General Discussion forum at all without wanting to slit my wrists), The Gal Herself and then I surf about mindlessly.
What have you been seriously addicted to lately?
Let’s see: David Cook (still), Twitter, and Dexter.
What’s the last song that got stuck in your head?
“Make me fall for you, as if I’ve got nothing else to do” – MWK
What is your favorite thing to wear?
My oh-so-comfy JammyPants. First thing I put on when I get home.
Do you think Rice Krispies are yummy?
Yummy is really NOT a word that fits with Rice Krispies. Yummy = cinnabon, bread pudding and ice cream with chocolate sauce. Short answer: NO.
What would you do if you saw $100 lying on the ground?
Look around to see if someone had just dropped it. And then probably pick it up, check with my guides to see if it’s okay to take it and go from there. (And yes, if they indicated no, I’d put it back down. I don’t cross my guides. For reals.)
What items couldn’t you go without during the day?
Coffee, iPod, debit card. Life is good.
What should you be doing right now?
Oh, probably something more constructive but my life is pretty free-flowing so I’ll get around to whatever that is soon enough.
