12 September, 2011

1) Who is the last person you high-fived?
Brianna, I think

2) If you were drafted into a war, would you survive?
Not no way, not no how

3) Do you sleep with the TV on?
Always.  I have seen every episode of The Golden Girls more times than I can count, and I'm working on old episodes of Frasier now.

4) Have you ever drunk milk straight out of the carton?

5) Have you ever won a spelling bee?
I only remember being in one spelling bee in grammar school and I think I came in 2nd (I still remember how to spell chrysanthemum).  I am, however, a pretty good speller, but some of those words they give the kids at the national spelling bee are crazy!

6) Have you ever been stung by a bee?
Only once.  I haven't ridden in the car with my arm hanging out the window since!

7) How fast can you type?
I used to type very fast, I probably still type faster than a lot of people, but my numb finger has slowed me down, because I frequently can't type characters which are typed with the little finger on the right hand.  You have no idea how many times I have to go back and replace a missing "p"

8) Are you afraid of the dark?
no...only when walking across the living room in my bare feet when we have puppies in the house.  Once you've made that mistake, trust me, you never make it again!

9) Eye color:
hazel (or as Walt would say, "green with yellow flecks")

10) Have you ever made out at a drive-in?
I think so. (Obviously it wasn't memorable!)

11) When was the last time you chose a bath over a shower?
I can’t remember. Even if I wanted to, I don’t think I would fit in a bath tub today.

12) Do you knock on wood?

13) Do you floss daily?
I try to

15) Can you hula hoop?
I could never do it, not even when I was a kid.  I seem to remember that my sister was pretty good at it.

16) Are you good at keeping secrets?
Very good

17) What do you want for Christmas?
world peace and a clean house. It is what I have asked for every year for about 30 years. I am starting to think I’m never going to get it.

18) Do you know the Muffin Man?
I am the muffin person (in fact, I made muffins only yesterday...blueberry, to use those beautiful berries I bought at Costco)

19) Do you talk in your sleep?
I’ve never stayed awake to find out.

20) Who wrote the book of love?
Joan Collins?
