I have nothing to write about right now. All the good stuff is too personal to share on the web at the moment, and my brain is too befuzzled to come up with alternate interesting stuff. So, I swiped a meme from ThisWoman'sWork, e voila! A post! I'll be back later with actual substance.
1) In five words, explain what ended your last friendship?
Crazy vindictive narcissistic tantrum self-respect
2) How was your prom night?
I didn't go. Too shy.
3) Do you have any famous relatives?
My great-uncle was a semi-famous artist, at least in New England writer-painter circles. He also drew an old-fashioned comic strip that nobody remembers any more.
4) Have you taken out loans to pay for college?
5) What did you receive last in the mail?
A pledge card for a Senate campaign.
6) What beverages have you drank today?
7) Do you leave nasty messages on people’s answering machines?
Nope. If I'm going to go through the bother of being nasty, I save it for in person!
8 ) What’s the most painful surgical procedure you’ve had done?
You mean I have to pick only one? Dental surgery? How about the laparoscopy that screwed up my inner ear for a week?
9) What is out your back door?
A concrete slab. A cinder blog. A blue tarp. A cat skeleton (haven't decided what to do with it yet). Loads of overgrown bushes.
10) Do you usually go out on the weekends?
Except for dancing, no.
11) Do you like what the ocean does to your hair?
12) Have you ever visited a planetarium or do you even know what one is?
Yes, many times over the years. We are lucky to have a local planetarium with lots of interesting programs.
13) What is your favorite flavor of pudding?
Chocolate or pistachio.
14) Describe your keychains:
A simple ring with an LED light, a tiny swiss army knife, and car/house keys attached. I don't keep track of my hub's keychain except it has a very cool red-light LED I gave him that he likes to use during observing sessions.
15) Where do you keep your change?
In my wallet in the change pocket.
16) When was the last time you got up and spoke in front of a large crowd?
I called a contra dance to a crowd of ~100 people a couple weekends ago. I talk all night.
17) What kind of winter coat do you have?
Long, wool, dark green. Downside: it has massive shoulder pads. Upside: I only wear it a couple weeks out of the year, and it keeps me toasty warm.
18) What was the weather like on your graduation day?
19) Do you sleep with the door to your bedroom open or closed?
Open to allow free passage of air and cats.
20) Is there anything purple within 20 feet of you?
A small purple stapler, purple post-it notepads, post card of the Grand Canyon, the walls of my bedroom.
21) What is the strangest thing you’ve put in the microwave?
I don't remember. Maybe my buckwheat hull neck heater.
22) Can you speak any Japanese?
Maybe Sayonara? Konishiwa! Sushi!
23) Do you look good in the color yellow?
24) Do you spit or smoke?
25) What is your favorite color(s)?
I like so many colors that I never know what to say. Purples, greens.
26) Ever played an instrument?
Piano and violin in 4th grade. Attempted again in later years, but without much success.
27) Do you believe in Bigfoot, or Sasquatch?
28) Ever been to a palm reader?
No, but I had an international friend read my palm at a party once 23 years ago.
29) Did they tell you the truth about your future?
What do you mean, "truth"? They said I'd be rich but have no kids. How far in the future would that apply?
30) What are you thinking about at this very moment?
Errands to do, friends to talk to.
31) Have you ever received a black eye?
32) What is your biggest current disappointment?
Hmmm. That I'm not going to be able to visit my cousin in Tampa next Jan or Feb as I had hoped. But it's not too bad because it's due to a bigger satisfaction, so it evens out.
33) What are some of your favorite drinks?
Limeade, real ginger ale, chocolate malted milkshake.
34) Do you have anything that hurts on your body at this time?
My neck/back (a little), a little nausea.
35) Have you ever ridden in a taxi?
Yes, returning from the airport after my trip to Italy. The car was 4-5 times as long as most Italian cars; I felt like I was riding in a tank.
36) What is the last alcoholic drink you had?
An ounce of chocolate port with a chocolate dessert - Yum! My friend was giving me a thank-you lunch for helping her with brides' tasks. This was several years ago.
37) Did you do anything special last night?
38) What is your very favorite food?
It's usually a toss up between ice cream and sushi.
Okay! That's it! More stuff later.
