A Time-Wasting Meme From Slywy

Stolen from Slywy, author of The Dark Side of the Moon...

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? Not that I'm aware of.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Within the past six months, at a movie.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? It changes depending on my mood. I like it when I'm feeling confident and composed. I dislike it when I'm feeling scatterbrained and confused.

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Coleman or Applegate Farms organic Roast beef.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS? Yes, one human daughter, one canine son, one feline son, plus several illegitimate dust bunnies that I'm rather not fond of.

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? I doubt it. This guy is nuts.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? Why shouldn't I?

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? No. I'd expected they give 'em to me in a jar after taking them out. That's what you think when you're five years old and someone says he'll remove something from your body, right? But no. When I asked for them, the doctor just laughed. And that set the tone for my relationship with medical professionals.

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Absolutely not.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Arrowhead Mills Maple Buckwheat Flakes, but I have to doctor them up with a lot of nuts or seeds and yogurt.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Yes.

12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? Physically, my strength is above average. Emotionally, (because Slywy included this type of strength) no. Intellectually, I have bursts of insight, so I can say I'm above average.

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Ben and Jerry’s One Sweet Whirled.

14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Their eyes. I read somewhere that the eyes are the window to the soul. Could that have been in the Bible?

15. RED OR PINK? Red.

16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? The distended abdomen that makes me look preggers.

17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? Short answer: Dad. Long answer requires a new post.

18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO SEND THIS BACK TO YOU? Yeppers.

19. WHAT COLOR SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? I'm wearing slippers. They're red, and I got them in this color because they were Overstocks at Lands End.

20. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE? Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toaster Pastries with sunflower seed butter and organic chocolate chips.

21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? Wife is closing the entertainment center door and walking to the kitchen.

22. IF YOU WHERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? Forest Green. It's my favorite color.

23. FAVORITE SMELLS? Lamb roast with rosemary. Coffee, esp. Hazelnut. Forest Green crayons.

24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? My sister.

25. DO YOU LIKE THE PERSON WHO SENT THIS TO YOU? I enjoy her blog because she does things that I enjoy and writes about them.

26. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH? Hockey. Dog shows.

27. HAIR COLOR? "Just For Men" Medium Brown. ;)

28. EYE COLOR? Green.

29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? No.

30. FAVORITE FOOD? Steak Tacos.

31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? Happy Endings.

32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? "Happy-Go-Lucky".

33. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? White v-neck undershirt. Well, it was white when I bought it.

34. SUMMER OR WINTER? Winter. The days start to get longer as it progresses.

35. HUGS OR KISSES? Hugs. Probably pick up fewer germs that way.

36. FAVORITE DESSERT? Death by chocolate cake. Or perhaps Apple Crumb Pie with Vanilla Ice Cream.

37. MOST LIKELY TO RESPOND? Perhaps Slywy or maybe Lynne or Karen.

38. LEAST LIKELY TO RESPOND? Ronald Reagan.

39. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? Please see My LibraryThing Currently Reading List.

40. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? My mouse? Okay, it's a design by Quantex, which is the company I bought my second computer from.

41. WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON TV LAST NIGHT? My wife lit a candle and put it on top of the TV. I watched that. I don't watch the actual TV.

42. FAVORITE SOUND? Cat purring.

43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? Beatles.

44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? Physically, Seattle. Mentally, there's no way to describe this distance.

45. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? What do I look like, Tinkerbell?

46. WHERE WERE YOU BORN? I haven't the foggiest recollection. My parents said it was somewhere on Earth, but I never believed them, especially since I doubted they were my actual parents.

47. WHOSE ANSWERS ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO GETTING BACK? Robin Williams', but if he's too busy I'd settle for Ford Prefect's.

So is that it? There are only 47 questions? Not 50? Or 42? That's an odd thing.

Lynne said...

Oh, I just might have to post this list of questions on my blog. Its kinda fun...I learned alot about you:) Grey white tees and Ben&Jerry's ice cream...my kind of guy!

Kerry said...

What a fun read Square Peg. I'm just about to go to close up shop and put my head on the pillow for the night. I'm glad to have stopped by your blog first for laughs and to learn more about ya.

Lynne said she pictured your "once was white tee shirt" as grey. I pictured yellowed. Wonder whose closer. (My hubby's once were white tees prefer yellowing to greying).

Going to have to read this again when I'm more awake. Fun! Kerry

Thanks so much for commenting, ladies!

Lynne and Kerry, you're both right about the T shirts. They've taken on a grey dingy appearance, but also have yellowed in the old pit areas.
