Sunday Stealing: The Question Meme
01) Are you currently in a serious relationship?
Well, *I* think it’s serious but neither Sparkela nor Cookie will return my calls so perhaps I am misguided in thinking this. I’ll let you know later.
02) What was your dream growing up?
To be thin because I believed (mistakenly, as it turns out) that your life is perfect if you are thin.
03) What talent do you wish you had?
I’d love to be able to draw reasonably well. I can barely eke out stick people and have no ability to envision something in my head and bring that vision to life on paper or computer.
04) If I bought you a drink what would it be?
Well, since you asked, I’d love a cosmo, please. That drink just blots out all the crap in my brain and leaves a nice residue of ahhhhh! for me to enjoy.
05) Favorite vegetable?
I like broccoli. And tomatoes. Corn is nice, too. (Don’t make me choose.)
06) What was the last book you read?
All the way through? That’s a toughie since I read a lot of non-fiction and skim through it for stuff that interests me. It probably was “Breaking Dawn” – the last in the Twilight series.
07) What zodiac sign are you?
See #5? I have trouble deciding things. That makes me a very typical Libra. All about balance, I am.
08) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where.
My ears are double pierced but I never wear the second set. No tattoos but contemplating one in memory of my Goddaughter of Love.
09) Worst Habit?
Singing to my pets. I don’t think they are very fond of it. I make up songs about food or walking up the steps or really anything. I’m pretty sure they put up with me for the treats.
10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
Do you look anything like David Cook or Hal Sparks? How about Jon Hamm? If so, I might be inclined to pull over.
11) What is your favorite sport?
LOVE hockey! Cannot watch other sports now as they are just too damn slow.
12) Do you have a Pessimistic or Optimistic attitude?
I am POP-timistic – mostly optimistic for others but at times pessimistic for myself. If you were to hang out with me, I think you’d find me mostly cheerful and optimistic.
13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
I don’t know you but I’m pretty sure I’d look to you to commiserate with me about being stuck.
14) Worst thing to ever happen to you?
Losing Lauren to cancer. She was like my own child and best friend wrapped into one and while it’s mellowed a bit now, there’s not one damn day I don’t think of her or miss her so. I can’t wait to see her again when I am on the other side.
15) Tell me one weird fact about you.
Just one? Hmmmm. I can sleep just fine with four cats sleeping on top of me. In fact, I think I sleep better that way than without them.
16) Do you have any pets?
Currently, we have two cats (Lucie and Sophia) and one (healing up from his April chomp) dog named Max. My kiddies.
17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly?
I’d be very annoyed. First, I don’t know you and second, I really hate visitors – especially drop-in ones. The house is always a dreadful cluttery mess and I don’t want anyone to see that.
18) What was your first impression of me?
Well, you seem nice but a bit nosey.
19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
I don’t like clowns overly. And most especially NOT Pennywise. EEK.
20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
I’d lose the chubs. Tired, so tired of fighting it.
21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
Is it possible to be both? I’d join in on the fun but I’d take pains that we didn’t get in a whole lot of trouble. (There’s that Libran balance thing again.)
22) What color eyes do you have?
The kind that change color if I’m crying or something – they’re mostly hazel/brownish/greenish.
23) Ever been arrested?
No and if I did now it most likely would be for some peace demonstration or something like that.
24) Bottle or can soda?
I think canned soda has a really icky, metallic taste. Much prefer bottles.
25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?
Pay off my credit card and send money to my Aunties.
26) What’s your favorite place to hang out?
The couch. Isn’t that sad?
27) Do you believe in ghosts?
Without question. Yes, I do. They don’t scare me unless they are demon ones and then I’ll call in the big boys (Archangel Michael and his crew) to do the heavy lifting out of my zone. So far, have not had that experience and don’t want it.
28) Favorite thing to do in your spare time?
Fart around. Write. Read. Pet my kitties. Mostly, fart around.
29) Do you swear a lot?
Depends on where I am and who I am with. You know I feel comfortable with you if the F word comes out.
30) Biggest pet peeve?
People who don’t pay attention. Like those who wait until their groceries are all rung up and bagged before they pull out their checkbook or wallet. Yes, you really do have to pay for all that stuff. I’m the kind of person who has the check all written out ahead of time and/or has my debit card at the ready.
31) In one word, how would you describe yourself?
Sweet. (And dorky and 12)
32) Do you believe/appreciate romance?
I do but not the syrupy “Schmoopy” kind of thing. When we first dated, Duty would sit on the same side of the booth with me at restaurants. I hated that. HATED IT. I don’t like feeling all crowded in. But I love when he brings me flowers at work and tries to sneak out or when he does little sweet things.
33) Favorite and least favorite food?
Love mashed potatoes and hate liver (although I’ve never had it. The idea of it grosses me out.)
34) Do you believe in God?
Without question. But not the idea of a God who hands out presents to the good ones or punishes you for some sin you committed. I believe in a Universal oneness and we are all a part of that. There are many, many life paths and lessons along the way and we are infinitely supported by the Universe in learning those lessons. Bottom line – I believe in a force greater than all of us. I see it every single day and I am glad to be a part of it all.
