8 February 2016

Do you own a tablet of any kind?
I have an iPad

Whatís something people always assume about you that isnít true?
That I'm an extrovert.

On a scale of 1-10, how much do elevators scare you?
Normally 0 but if they start shaking or stopping, probably 6.

When youíre upset, do you vent to people or do you keep to yourself?
Mostly I keep it to myself, until I can't keep it any more.

Have you ever watched a meteor shower?
Yes.  When we were in college, we watched Perseids in the high places of Yosemite.  It was magical.

Do you tend to put things off until the last minute?

How do you react to random strangers suddenly trying to make conversation with you?
Politely, as a general rule, unless they are obnoxious.

Do you have a lucky number?
I have always thought of 7 as my lucky number, though it has never brought me any luck.

Would you go out to dinner with Oprah?
Sure...if she's picking up the bill.

Did you ever play sports?
Only if forced.  I was on a volleyball team in high school.  I spent a lot of time on the bench.

Do you feel guilty if you throw food away?
I have dogs for that.

Do you think you could make it as a baker?
I wouldn't want to.  I was a cake decorator for a couple of years and enjoyed it, but would not like to do it full time.

Are you one of those people who are wearing scarves with everything?
Nope.  Want to learn how to fix a scarf so it looks far, not really.

Have you ever been in a castle?
Several in Europe, and our own Hearst Castle here in California.

When you were little, did you ever play with Playdoh?
Apparently Play-Doh was invented in 1964.  I was 21 years old by then.

Would you rather write a mystery or love story?
Definitely a mystery.

Tell me about your worst fashion mistake:
My life is a fashion mistake!

Do you hate it when people smoke around you?
Hate?  No.  Dislike a lot?  Yes.

How are you wearing your hair right now?
Short, but it's getting too long and I need a haircut.  I've decided I like the shortness of a pixie cut.

Whenís the last time you were sick?
According to my journal, apparently I had my "annual cough" at about this time last year.  I missed Ashley & David's wedding because of it as well as a visit with Walt's cousin and his wife. I suppose I'm due again.

Would you rather have OJ or milk with your breakfast?
I am an OJ fiend and rarely drink milk, unless it's on cereal.

What were you doing thirty minutes ago?
Watching Beasts of No Nation.  I had to turn it off.  Entirely too violent.

Do you own any school related clothing articles?
I'm nearly 73.  I haven't had school related clothing articles in decades.

Would you rather call people or have them call you?
I would rather they called me, unless it's a telemarketer.

Can you carry a tune?
I used to have a fair voice, but in the last few years, my vocal range has decresed to less than an octave, so I can't really sing any more.  (The world is grateful)

Who was the last person who unexpectedly texted you?
The last "unexpected" text I had was from Walt's sister on David's birthday.

Who do you text the most?
My daughter in Boston.
