...some questions...I'm pooped and don't feel like messing about with photos this am for GTS. Need to do some straightening in me office. Since we cleaned the basement some of it has migrated upstairs and it's starting to look crappy. So, if you answer these questions....be sure to let me know so I can come read. :0]
1. My roommate and Ionce: Participated in a Dance Marathon for MD. She won the grand prize which was a car..a 1972 Matador (this was 1980). I then purchased that car and a month or so later, moved out. Actually, I went back home and then joined the Army 3 months later. 2. Never in my life have I: been so smart...as I am right now. And the beauty is...in another week, month, or year..I'll be smarter still. Learning is a lifelong experience. 3. The one person who can drive me nuts, but then can always manage to make me smile is: the boy I'm married to! And he can do it in less than 3 seconds, the turd. 4. High school was: a relief from the harrassement of junior high school. (See recent TT post) And a great education. 5. When I’m nervous: I get an upset stomach, bite my nails and fidget. Usually followed by overeating. 6. The last time I cried was: My last day at work before my vacation...ah Friday the 11th. Think I needed some time off? 7. If I were to get married right now, my bridesmaids/groomsmen would be: Non existent. Didn't have any to be begin with, don't see the need for them if I got married again. 8. Would you rather run naked through a crowded place or have someone e-mail your deepest secret to all your friends? Neither but if I HAVE to choose...email my deepest secret. Don't you know I have trouble keeping mysecrets?? 9. My hair: Is making me nuts. I don't know what I want to do with it. Grow it out, keep it short. I have to have it professionally colored every 4 weeks as my roots are white/grey and exceptionally noticeable. My hair grows almost an inch a month so...And I love being a redhead...it's the color I should have been my whole life. 10. When I was 5: I did 'police call' around our house. Yup, my dad was military and I had to go around picking up trash and ciggy butts from our lawn. Hey, at 5 you are pretty close to the ground. 11. Last Christmas: we didn't decorate, send out cards or anything. We gave each other some presents but that was all. Didn't feel like it. Not sure if we will 'do' Christmas this year either. 12. When I turn my head left: I see a bunch of stuff I need to file, sort, trash and put away. 13. I should be: showered, dressed and fed instead of blogging. 14. When I look down I see: My chest of course...d'uh. 15. The craziest recent event was: I don't have 'crazy recent events'. Well, not funny crazy anyway. 16. If I were a character on "Friends" I’d be: A cross between Monica and Phoebe. Yup, I'm just that scary!! 17. By this time next year: I plan to be happier, leaner, fit and funnier. 18. My favourite aunt is: Ohhhh...can't answer that one. Have lots of aunts and they all are special people. 19. I have a hard time understanding: People who don't recycle, people who smoke, people who make hate their hobby or job, people who don't love animals and people who don't like chocolate.... ;0] 20. One time at a family gathering: I was thrown in the pool...clothes and all. 21. You know I like you if: I compliment you all the time. I call you and want to do things with you. I send you stuff. I answer the phone. 22. If I won an award, the first person I’d thank: Me mum of course...who else? Okay, maybe me husband too. 23. Take my advice: take care of yourself so that someone else doesn't have to when you get older and you can do the things you really WANT to do. 24. My ideal breakfast is: prepared by someone else who loves me. Oh, you mean food ;0] Well, Old Heidelberg's blueberry strudel, or french toast or Cracker Barr*l's pancakes, scrapple, fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, fresh fruit and Earl Grey Tea or hot cocoa. 25. If you visit my home town: Be sure to stop by the convent on Enfield St. for some Babka bread. And Rinaldi's for a meatball grinder. Oh, and Friendly's for a grilled cheese. Yeah..I'm all about the food, baby. 26. Sometime soon I plan to visit: Belize with my boy and sit on the beach and drink ritas. 27. If you spend the night at my house: You will have your bed turned down, homemade cookies on your pillow, a carafe of water on your nightstand and you'd better like dogs and cats.... :0] 28. I’d stop my wedding if: I loved Wenchy's answer, who I borrowed this meme from... "The groom died. A dead groom is just not sexy." That is a fab answer...still makes me laugh. 29. The world could do without: HATE, POLLUTION & GREED. 30. I’d rather lick the belly of a cockroach than: can't answer that...because I could never do it. If you know me at all, you know how I feel about bugs...that's why I live in Colorado. 31. The most recent thing I’ve bought myself is: Archival safe holders for my photo CD's and for my negatives. 32. The most recent thing someone else bought for me is: A Pentax K1000..read about it here. 33. My favourite blonde is: Is Matthew McConaughy considered a blonde? 34. My favourite brunette is:Mike Rowe... sigh...oh! Uh...I mean Bill of course. ;0] 35. My car must have a sign on it that reads:UCONN Alumni 36. The last time I was drunk: Was a few years ago. I rarely have more than two drinks. But I pulled out the stops with some Cap'n Morgan and coke and after 5 or 6, promptly fell asleep in the middle of playing Cranium. Yeah, I don't hold my liquor very well. 37. The animals I would like to see flying besides birds: No answer for this.?? 38. I shouldn’t have been: So hard on myself. Everyone else is quite good at it. 39. I should have: Insisted a.lot.more. vehemently. on having children. 40. Last night I: finished putting my photo CD's and the index print/proof sheet in the protectors and ordered the binders for them. 41. There’s this girl I know who: is a genuinely sweet, nice and thoughtful person and it ain't me. I only aspire to her level.

I’ve lived at my current address since: March of 1995 48. I’ve been told I look like: Fergie...pre weight watchers unfortunately... 49. If I could have any car, it would be: A Prius. 50. If I got a new cat tomorrow, I would name it: Depends on the kitty. We try to see the animal's personality and name them appropriately. Although, our Hank is much more like Drover, bless his heart, than Hank....(got to have read the books to get that).
