6 August 2017


I found this on a site called "my-bitter-soul" which now appears to be predominately for anime, but has the occasional meme as well.  He says he originally got it from a blog called "All My Answers," which has apparently been deleted.


Do You Have Freckles?
No, but my son did and his daughter now has them.  Walt had them as a kid too. 

Do You Sleep With Your Closet Doors Open Or Closed?
I sleep in a room with no closet.

Can You Whistle?
Yes, but not the kind of whistle where you put your fingers in your mouth and let blow.  Mine is a softer whistle.

Did You Wake Up Cranky today?
Nope.  I was well slept and comfy and the dogs were still asleep = good awakening!

Zodiac Sign.

What Is Your Eye Color?
According to DMV, Hazel; according to Walt, "green with yellow flecks"

Take A Vitamin Daily?
No.  Other pills, but no vitamin.

Do You Sing In The Shower?
Never have.

What Did You Have For Lunch?
Leftover baked beans.

Do You Watch The Olympics?
Yes, but not religiously.  I like some events, not others.  In summer I try to watch diving, gymnastics and equestrian events, but often other events too.  In winter I watch the ice skating and ski jump but also like a lot of the downhill events.

Do You Prefer To Swim In A Pool Or The Ocean?
Well, the last time I swam in anything was 2009 -- 15 minutes in a hotel roof top pool in Italy.  I can't remember the last time I swam in the ocean.

Bottled Water Or Tap Water?
Bottled.  I tried to get used to the taste of Davis tap water for years and finally gave up and have been buying bottled water for about 40 years.

Do You work Better With Or Without Music?
Without.  It's weird but music really bothers me, though I can have the TV on all day.  It's not that I don't like music, I do -- it just irritates me when I'm trying to work.

Can You Curl Your Tongue?

Is There Anything Pink Within 10 Feet Of You?"
Yes, some pink stationery and a roll of washi tape that is predominately pink.

Have You Ever Caught A Butterfly?
Yes, and now feel guilty about it.  In the summer we would catch butterflies and pin them to a board until they died, their wings flapping ineffectually.  Now I think about how the butterflies must have suffered and I feel very cruel.

Are You Easily Influenced By Other People?
About some things

Do You Have Strange Dreams?
I don't dream all that much, but every once in awhile I have weird dreams.

Do You Like Going On Airplanes?
I used to love flying, but these days with long lines, TSA problems and seats that I can barely fit in and no more meals--not even peanuts, flying is something I dread.  On one of the last flights I took we had to change planes in Frankfurt and we had to go through so many check points that I finally decided if we had to go through one more, I was going to give up and move to Frankfurt.

Name One Movie That Made You Cry.
An Affair to Remember.  I can cry if I just turn on the last 5 minutes of that movie.

Peanuts Or Sunflower Seeds?
Peanuts all the way.

If I Handed You A Concert Ticket Right Now, Who Would You Want The Performer To Be?
Jim Brochu and/or Steve Schalchlin.

Are You A Picky Eater
I'd like to say no, but I guess I am.  I mostly like things plain and not too hot, though I'm trying to add more heat into my cooking and the sauces from Blue Apron or Home Chef have made me a fan of sauces. But I don't like to eat weird stuff.  I would NOT go out to dinner with Andrew Zimmern!

Are You A Heavy Sleeper?
Yes and no.  Once I'm asleep, you can have a party in the room where I'm sleeping and I won't wake up, but I only sleep ~3 hours at a time and then have to go back to sleep again.

Do You Fear Thunder / Lightning?
No.  I find it exciting.  (We don't get it around here much)

Do You Like Your Music Loud?

Would You Rather Carve Pumpkins Or Wrap Presents?
I love wrapping presents.  I hate carving pumpkins.

What’s The Next Movie You Want To See In Theaters?
We see movies so seldom I don't even know what is playing now or what is coming up.

Been On The Computer For 5 Hours Straight?

Do You Like Meeting New People?
Depends.  I don't dislike it, but I always feel awkward and never know what to say

What Are Three Things You Did Today?
- Wrote a review of My Fair Lady, which we saw last night
- Got depressed watching Bill Maher.
- Wrote this blog entry

What Do You Wear To Bed?
It depends.  Often the sweats I have been wearing all day, or PJ bottoms with an Obama t-shirt (I have gotten more wear out of that T-shirt, which I got free in 2008, than any other t-shirt I own, since it became part of my pjs).

Do You Wear Jeans Or Sweats More?
I haven't worn jeans in years, and wear sweats all the time.

Name Something That Relaxes You.



I decided to try the latest fad of coloring.
I took advantage of a free download of a coloring program.
I colored two pictures and liked them both.
Then I discovered I had inadvertently signed up for a trial subscription
and that in a week I would be charged $8.  Sigh.
Needless to say, I terminated the program -- but I had a good time coloring!


I'd love it if you'd leave a comment!
