Proshat tagged me for a meme. I have been neglecting my blog lately and this seems like a good way to get back into it. so here it goes...
1. Last movie you saw in a theater?
Wow, I have been so busy lately that I haven’t been socializing much. Shame on me. The last movie I saw in the theater was Borat.
2. What book are you reading?
I am between books at the moment. I just finished one called With All Our Strength which is about RAWA: The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan.
3. Favorite board game?
Settlers of Catan
5. Favorite smell?
6. Favorite food?
7. Favorite sound?
The sound of a sailboat halyard slapping against a mast.
8. Worst feeling in the world?
Betrayal and Loss.
9. What is the first thing you think of when you wake up?
That depends on the day but usually I think, "oh man, I don’t feel like going to work"
10. Favorite fast food place?
Kluck’s Drive In
11. Future child’s name?
I am not going to have kids. But if I were going to, I would name my child(ren) after my grandparents. If I were to have a boy, his name would be Perry Michael and if it were a girl, her name would be Justine Elizabeth. Interestingly, in the past, whenever I have had this discussion, people (usually men) say that they don’t think it fair that I would pick both the first and middle names. My reply has always been that he has a choice. He can pick the last name OR the first and middle names. What is funny is how many have gotten upset about that because they just figure that the kids should automatically get the father’s last name and then should get a say in the other names too. Because you know, otherwise I am not being FAIR to the men. *rolls eyes*
12. Finish this statement. If I had a lot of money:
I would quit my job and travel...
13. Do you drive fast?
In the mornings I drive fast because I am usually a little bit late.
14. Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?
Not in the last 30 years or so I am afraid.
15. Storms cool or scary?
VERY cool. I love storms. And ok, sometimes they can be scary especially when tornados are sighted and the sky turns green. But even when they are scary enough to drive me into my basement, they are still cool
16. What was your first car?
The first car that was MINE was my 1996 VW Jetta. I am still driving that. Now granted, I had other cars which officially belonged to my parents but which I drove. I guess the first car I drove regularly was a 1979 Ford Fairmont station wagon.
17. Favorite drink?
18. Finish this statement, "If I had the time I would...":
Spend more time hanging out at the lake.
19. Do you eat the stems on broccoli?
Of course. They are the best part!
20. If you could dye your hair any color, what would be your choice?
I like my hair color but if I had to pick a different one, I would probably dye it blond.
21. Name all the different cities/ towns you have lived in?
Ann Arbor, Michigan
Sault Ste Marie, Michigan
22. Half empty or half full?
The Glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
23. Favorite sports to watch?
American College Football. I especially like it when MSU beats UofM which is a rare enough occurrence that it is extra special. I also enjoy watching figure skating, gymnastics, swimming, diving, horse racing, and occasionally baseball.
25. Morning person, or night owl?
I am a night person for sure.
26. Over easy, or sunny side-up?
Over easy. But actually I am more scrambled than anything else.
27. Favorite place to relax?
My extra large arm chair in my living room.
28. Favorite pie?
Cherry. Although I had a very excellent slice of blueberry pie this weekend from the Grand Traverse Pie Company that was sooooo good it might be my new favorite pie. It was made with Michigan blueberries too.
