Meme From TVB

September 24, 2008

Meme’d from http://tvbblog.com/2008/09/19/tag-youve-been-memed/  (I’m too lazy to fix the link… sigh)

Were you named after anyone?
Yes.    My great grandmother.   However, she was called a nickname and that’s what my name is, but when she died, everyone found out what her REAL name was!    Even weirder – they carved the nickname on her gravestone so I’m really not sure if this is a true story or not.   But I like her REAL name better and as a kid, tried to get everyone to call me by that  name.   It never stuck.

Single or Married?
Married.  Will celebrate 20 years this November. 

Do you like your own handwriting?
Sometimes, when I’m careful, it looks OK.    But when sloppy, it slants every which way and is consistently inconsistent.    An analyst might say that I’m ‘untrustworthy.’

What is your favorite lunch meat?
Roast Beef.

Do you have children?
Nope.    Well, not that I’ve birthed.   But I count many of my N&Ns as ‘my children’ and spoil them often with packages in the mail.    And my bff’s kids are considered my N&N’s cuz they don’t have many ‘real’ family members, if you know what I mean…

If you were another person, would you be friends with you?
Yes, I think I would be a heck of a lot of fun to hang out with.    I’m always up for adventures and it would be great not to go alone to all the fun things I want to do but can never find anyone to go with me.

Do you use sarcasm alot?
Yep, and usually at the worst times.

Do you still have your tonsils?

Would you bungee jump?
Depends.   I would like to say I would but…    I really don’t like heights.

What is your favorite cereal?
Lucky Charms.  Just like teeveebee!   But I ate Cheerios this morning.  I never buy Lucky Charms. 

Do you untie your shoes before you take them off?
Yes, I think I tie my shoes too tight.  I have to untie to take them off.

Do you think you are strong?
Strong physically or strong personality or strong in a crisis?   nah.

What is your favorite flavor of ice-cream?
Dove Dark Chocolate.   I’d link to a post I did on this once but, again, I’m in a hurry this morning and too lazy.   You can search for it if you want.   It’s a post that gets a few hits still.

What is the first thing you notice about people?
If they have a sense of humor.

Red or pink?

Fruit or Veggie?

Strange question.   I wish I could see my bff a bit more.   She lives far away and is incredibly busy bizzy busy.

I’m not wearing shoes at the moment.

Cheerios, skim milk, banana.

What are you listening to now?
The hum of this here PC.

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Probably something in the purple family.

Favorite Smells?
Too many things have listed in my head to pick one.    But let’s say…    Freshly baked Raspberry Berry Pie.

Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
My hub.

Favorite Sports?
Probably football.   But I’d rather see a live baseball game than a live football game.

Hair color?
I have dark brown hair with a few wiry stubborn whites sticking out of my part.   I colored to a warm brown wash but it’s fading.

Eye color?

Do you wear contacts?
No.  I have to use reading glasses, though and IT PISSES ME OFF!  

What is your favorite food?
I just love good food.    Last Friday, we went to a Thai restaurant and I ordered Massamon (I think that’s the spelling) Curry and it was HEAVEN.     oh, so good.   One of the dishes that I will have to order again which will make me mad because the whole menu looks terrific and I will be scared to NOT get the one I know I like but will want to try something else and I’ll be in quite the conundrum.    I recommend the Thai Spice KETTLE brand potato chips if you ever see them – WOW!!!!    I had to go back to Ocean State Job Lots and buy 3 more bags cuz…  WOW!!!

Scary movie or happy ending?
I hate scary movies.   Give me intelligent humor and drama and occasionally a silly one.   Plus romantic comedies.   I just watched While You Were Sleeping for the umpteenth time 2 nights ago and saw Burn After Reading last night.     (which was good?  but not as good as I had hoped, but still good, ya know?   Gotta love the Coen Brothers.)  

What was the last movie you watched?
Um, see prior question.

I’m wearing a black Middleboro Hockey hoodie.

Hugs (but kisses with the sweetie, of course…   especially on the back of my neck.)

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Sparks.

The Dell logo.

The first glug,glug,glug of a newly opened bottle of wine.

Rolling Stones or Beatles?

Where is the farthest you’ve been from home?
When I went to Alaska and had to leave my hub at home.    Home is where my heart is?   That’s the farthest distance I’ve spent a night away from the man.

I can tie my shoes faster than you can.   Unless you’re the girl who taught me how to do that, I suppose.

Where were you born?
3K Illinois.

Which is your favorite chipmunk?
Don’t have one.

Do you like to cook or bake?
Depends.    I like to bake pies.  and prefer my hub to cook.




  1. I had fun reading your answers. I think you have an interesting talent. Do you have a special technique to tie your shoe, or do you do it the regular way, just really, really fast? Maybe shoe tying (tieing?) will become an official Olympic sport and you can compete for a gold medal. 🙂

    It’s a different and unusual technique. I’ve only met one person who knows how to tie like I do. I used to bet the boys a beer in bars in college that I could tie faster than they could. I always won.

  2. I think I sense that a video of shoe tying needs to be made. 😉 I loved reading your answers and now I have to go look up that Dove chocolate post. I really shouldn’t though. I just know it. LOL.

    OMG! I was thinking the SAME THING! It will be my first attempt to video. I might have to drive down to see Joan and make her do it since she’s a pro.

    Here’s the Dove Ice Cream link: https://ideajump.wordpress.com/2007/11/16/friday-stuffs/

  3. Oh C, after reading this I’m quite sure we would be quite the girlfriends if we lived within shouting distance. MMMM chocolate pudding. Tying shoes faster than me – that’s okay – I can type pretty fast. 😉

  4. Amen to your favourite sound! And I do believe that you are the first person I’ve come across who would pick roast beef as a fav!
    I liked your answers. 🙂

  5. “But I count many of my N&Ns”

    What’s an N&N? the answer is bound to be obvious – but I’m not sure. Is it do with old folk? Forget that question – I’ve just twigged! It’s nephews and nieces isn’t it? LOL!


  6. I never thought I would think it might be interesting to watch a video of a person tying her/his shoes! However…
    You were very forthcoming here, and I enjoyed reading all this about you! I loved all your answers, but particularly your food one, because it wasn’t just about the food, but your own process concerning food. kewl. 🙂

  7. I loved it! So i tagged myself!! I enjoyed your answers, i will agree with everyone, i would watch the shoe tying video!!
