C-and-P, no Crea-ti-vi-ty

Cutting and Pasting so you lurkers can learn what thoughts are currently rattling in my head.  Copied from a blog I stumbled upon (side note: the best thing about the blog is the titles of the blogs in the blogroll).  Memes are easier than originality.  I’m just not into writing lately je suppose.

  1. Explain what ended your last relationship? He stood me up.  A very unexpected end.  I actually took a picture of myself while I cried so I’d remember what real hurt was like and that I would never do that to another man.
  2. When was the last time you shaved? Yesterday.
  3. What were you doing this morning at 8 a.m.? Feeding my godson breakfast.
  4. What were you doing 15 minutes ago? Trolling blogs.
  5. Are you any good at math? Stop laughing, fellow RPers! a-HEM. I am good at calculus and abstract math- was on the math team in high school- but still can’t grasp basic multiplication and addition.
  6. Your prom night? Which one? Okay, we’ll go with senior. I had a very serious boyfriend who had left for the military and we had thus ended our relationship (but ended up dating again later). I was panicked not to have a date so I asked someone quickly.  I went with someone I’d dated in the past but not a serious boyfriend. He was from a different city and didn’t know my friends, thus sulking most of the afterprom night in the corner. He was a nice guy but I was always sorry I didn’t let someone ask me.
  7. Do you have any famous ancestors? James G. Randall, Lincoln author.
  8. Last thing received in the mail? Cook’s Illustrated. i’ve already made the delicious Penne alla Vodka from it (can’t reprint for copyright issues).
  9. How many different beverages have you had today? Coffee, coffee again, diet A&W cream soda, orange juice…three.
  10. Do you ever leave messages on people’s answering machines? Who still has an answering machine? I leave messages for my parents, but rarely on anyone’s phone- all are mobile with caller ID. If I want something other than to idly chat, I text.
  11. Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach? No. Never did.
  12. What’s the most painful dental procedure you’ve had? None. Didn’t feel wisdom teeth being cracked out of my head; never had a cavity.
  13. What is out your back door? A cornfield. Hey, is this Indiana? How’d I get here?
  14. Any plans for Friday night? Yes- a big party.
  15. Do you like what the ocean does to your hair? Yes. it reminds me I’m on vacation.This is what a day of surf does to my hair.
  16. Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different popcorns? No. *whew*
  17. Have you ever been to a planetarium? Yes, with my neice.
  18. Do you re-use towels after you shower? Yes. Aren’t I clean when I use it?
  19. Some things you are excited about? Not very excited right now. Hard day!  Ask again, magic eight ball, when I’m not so tired.
  20. What is your favorite flavor of JELLO? Raspberry with raspberries in it, though plain raspberry is really good comfort food.
  21. Describe your keychain(s)? Ha. I have four keychains, each with one key, each for one car. It drives my sister crazy that I don’t have a keychain with 20 keys.  The car that is “mine” was a very recent gift from my wonderful husband.  We’ve been saving for a car for me for three years and I sold my Sebring over a year ago.  It was a very thrilling moment to take my beloved keychain I bought many years ago and add my new car key.
  22. Where do you keep your change? In my “aquarium fund” glass and in the change thing in my car to avoid downtown parking tickets.
  23. When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people? What’s large? Depends. Last month was group of important people, but not a LARGE group.
  24. What kind of winter coat do you own? A camel coat, a black leather coat, a red wool coat, a brown microfiber coat, and about 10 different hat/scarf combos to keep it interesting.
  25. Do you sleep with the door to your room open or closed? Closed mostly, to allow the cat to roam.
