Because it's going around

A meme from Mary:

1. Do you like blue cheese? I love it, especially in a salad with fruit.
2. Have you ever smoked? Only when I can't help it.
3. Do you own a gun? No, but Luka has this toy that shoots tennis balls. That's pretty dangerous, too.
4. What flavor Kool Aid is your favorite? Kool Aid is gross, unless it's frozen in an ice cube tray and you're 8.
5. Do you get nervous before doctor appointments? Yeah, so I mostly avoid doctors.
6. What do you think of hot dogs? Mustard and ketchup, please.
7. Favorite Christmas movie? I can't think of a single one... wait... I like Jimmy Stewart so whatever one that is that he's in.
8. What do you prefer to drink in the morning? Coffee.
9. Can you do push-ups? I can, yeah... thanks to plank pose in yoga.
10. What's your favorite piece of jewelry? Jewelry's not my thing, but I do have a couple well-loved things that I'm really sentimental about.
11. Favorite hobby? Daydreaming.
12. Do you have A.D.D? Most certainly, yes. Only it wasn't called that back when I was in school.
13. Do you wear glasses/contacts? I need glasses for distance, but only wear them to drive. I was cross-eyed as a kid and wore glasses (and a patch!) to correct that, so I'm a bit vain about glasses now.
14. Middle name? Claire, after my mom.
15. Name thoughts at this moment? Thinking I should buy some more songs by Amos Lee from iTunes.
16. Name 3 drinks you regularly drink? Coffee, seltzer, Blue Moon.
17. Current worry? That I'm not worried enough.
18. Current hate? I hate that I don't have a sled, or a hill nearby, or snow.
19. Favorite place to be? Right now.
20. How did you bring in the New Year? At my brother's; it was quiet except for the trumpet and pots.
21. Where would you like to go? Just about anywhere could be fun, I think.
22. Name three people who will complete this? Other lazy, brain-dead people.
23. Do you own slippers? No... I love to be barefoot.
24. What color shirt are you wearing? Black.
25. Do you like sleeping on satin sheets? I imagine them to be too slippery.
26. Can you whistle? Yes and do so absent-mindedly, annoying my coworkers.
27. Favorite color? Green.
28. What songs do you sing in the shower? None.
29. Would you be a pirate? Well... I have worn an eye patch.
30. Favorite Girl's Name? Don’t have a favorite.
31. Favorite boy's name? Don’t have a favorite.
32. What's in your pocket right now? 37 cents and a bank receipt.
33. Last thing that made you laugh? I had a really good belly-laugh this afternoon listening to my voicemail messages at work. A client was making excuses for her late rent payment and blamed it on the snow here and the heat in Florida... nevermind, but it was hilarious!
34. What vehicle do you drive? Honda CRV.
35. Worst injury you've ever had? I had stitches in my chin once from a fall as a kid.
36. Do you love where you live? No, but the where doesn't figure much in that.
37. How many TVs do you have in your house? Two too many.


Anyone else feel lazy?

"19. Favorite place to be? Right now."

The deepest answer to this question I've seen yet. Just a few days ago a meditation teacher was trying to explain Buddhism to me and how the most important place to be was in the moment. I'm trying to get my head around that.

I'm sorry but when you said you were cross-eyed as a kid made me giggle because I wasn't expecting it. And the reference to the pirate eye patch made me howl. Maybe I should just go to bed now.

OK .. I sent your responses in to Dr. Phil ... under an assumed name of course. According to him you are pretty normal except for the kool aid part.

Sekhar said...

That was a nice list of questions and answers I have always asked myself :)
Nice post.

I was 37 cents too short today at the dollar store: I had to drop out a $100,000 bar (candy bar, not the real thing!)

and is any of it really relevant?
You are a charming, intelligent, sympathetic young woman with a great sense of humor.

My grandpa told me to never trust a whistler.

Mojoman: Thanks for the chuckle... it's challenging, but a worthy goal for how to be, I think.

Mary: Glad for making you chuckle. I made a good pirate back then...

;-)

Rabbit's Guy: Normal? Pfft!

Sekhar: Hey! Thanks for humoring my sillyness.

Robert: Too bad. Those are good candy bars.

Silverlight: Relevant?

(rolling on floor laughing)

Nice to have a comment from you. I haven't been by your blog in a while now....

Blankfrank: Whistlers are usually up to something... that poor music is a distraction of sorts...

;-)
