01 What is the worst nickname that anyone has ever called you?
I've never really had a nickname, unlike my mother, whose name is Mildred, but
someone called her "Chubbie" when she was in high school and the name stuck.
To this day, everyone in her family calls her Aunt Chubbie...It was quite an
older kid before I realized it was NOT a normal name!
02 Have you got a favorite flower?
Several. I love any roses that smell like roses and not like a hot house.
I love daffodils. I even like daisies, and the fields of sunflowers around
here in the fall.
03 Do you add a sauce, ketchup or other artificial flavorings to your food?
No. I'm pretty much a purist.
04 Describe yourself using only words that begin with the letter 'T'.
Thinker, Talented, Tender, TV Addict -- is "Typist" a description?
05 What is/was your lover's pet name for you
06 What is your least favorite color?
Orange. I like the color, but hate it in clothing for me.
07 Who did you vote for in the last election, and did they win?
I did NOT vote for the man currently living in the White House.
08 What is/was your grandfathers’ names?
My father's father was Al, my mother's father was Stuart.
09 What is the best present you ever received?
Over her lifetime, Jeri made some wonderful gifts. She made 12 Gilbert &
Sullivan characters out of egg shells that was just great. And she took "Delicate
Pooh" and fixed his face after the dog ate it off--He is the one thing I'd
save if the house were on fire.
10 What is 17 1/2% of 97 + 42 x (6 / 2) – 137 ?
You've gotta be kidding.
11 What would be the best possible way you could live?
I dunno. I'm happy the way I'm living now.
12 Given the choice of absolutely anything, what would be your dream job?
If I were younger (and not retired) and more physically fit, it would be fun to
do something having to do with animals...possibly working in a zoo (be fun to
volunteer in the Irwins' zoo in Australia). More realistically, I had
my dream job, which was being a medical transcriptionist.
13 What position do you sleep in at night?
On my right side.
14 What is the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to you?
Most embarrassing was probably in grammar school when I was in a park
where there was no bathroom, went into the bushes to pee, and tore my
pants...then had to walk home four blocks with my bottom visible...and one of
the guys in my class called to me out his upper window. i don't THINK he
saw my bare bottom because he was the kind of kid who woujld definitely tease me
about it, but I'm still embarrassed to think about it.
15 Who is your favorite fictional character?
16 What food do you hate most in the world?
Liver. Second is beets.
17 When was the last time you were ill?
A long time ago, so I'm now washing my hands a lot and hoping to miss the
18 If you were transformed into a wild creature, what would it be?
Definitely an elephant. I am fascinated by elephant societies and would
love to be part of one.
19 What was your favorite toy as a child, and whatever happened to it?
I loved story book dolls. I had lots of them that were on display boxes my
father built and hung on the wall in our bedroom. We were not allowed to
play with them. I don't know what happened to them after we grew up and
20 What's the most amazing thing you've ever seen?
We've seen so many amazing things, but the one thing that jumps to mind
initially is the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland.
