I was tagged (I'm "it") by the fabulicious Diva, from The Sugar Bar, ages ago and it is high time I volleyed a return. If you have not visited her food blog, I suggest you high-tail it over there and get busy. This sasstastic talentress is not yet 21, but I swear someday I will say "I knew her when". She may be the next Vivienne Westwood or the next food-rock-star or she'll run a chocolate hotel or I just don't KNOW what, but it will BE something glorious, that I do know. J'adore her. Anywho, she tagged me with a marathon "meme", so I best get going....
1) Last movie you saw in a theater?
The Dark Knight. Loved it.
2) What book are you reading?
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert; this book was a gift from my sister and I'm actually really surprised at how much I'm getting out of it, on a personal level. The book is triggering ALL sorts of food for thought, pray for thought...and well, I haven't gotten to the love for thought yet.
3) Favorite board game?
Does a cutting board count? How 'bout cutting board with my Global knife?
4) Favorite magazine?
They are all boring me to SNOT right now. ALL of them.
5) Favorite smells?
My hubby during a hug. My dogs' heads and necks. Cooking. Baking. Fresh rain.
6) Favorite sounds?
"The Sultan of Brunei decided to give you 1/2 of his fortune"
7) Worst feeling in the world?
Helplessness. Depression. Apathy. Inertia.
8) What is the first thing you think of when you wake?
I could LIVE in this bed, it's so comforting here.
9) Favorite fast food place?
I don't eat fast food. Unless Chipotle is fast food? Then THAT, times a bajillion.
10) Future child's name?
Wait, do you know something I don't? Are you pregnant with MY CHILD?
11) Finish this statement - "If I had a lot of money I'd..."
Live well, give generously, do what makes me happy. Eliminate the words "coach class" from my vocabulary immediately.
12) Do you drive fast?
Does my dog pee in the house? Does a bear shit in the woods?
13) Do you sleep with a stuffed animal?
Nope - two real ones (see "does my dog pee in the house" above), plus my husband - so I guess that makes 3 real ones.
14) Storms - cool or scary?
Cool, mang, cool. Unless your roof gets ripped off during the storm, then not.
15) What was your first car?
Toyota Corolla - which I totaled by flipping 4 times while trying to miss a possum who was crossing the road while I was driving 80mph, without a seatbelt. This was 10 days after my Mom died, which was not good timing to end up in the ICU, from my family's perspective. Good times.
16) Favorite drink?
Diet coke or sugar free kool-aid. Yesssssss, I know about the sweeteners. It was aspartame or crack and I chose the former.
17) Finish this statement - if I had the time, I would...
...figure out what I do with all of the time I already do have and do nothing with...
18) Do you eat the stems on broccoli?
I do - and then I say 10 Hail Marys.
19) If you could dye your hair any other color, what would be your choice?
Wow. I dunno - maybe reddish? Or, what about lime? Can I go right back to my original color? Is this a trick question?
20) Name all of the different cities/towns you've lived.
Madison, Eau Claire, Janesville, Minneapolis, Denver, Boulder, Eldorado Springs, Phoenix
21) Favorite sports to watch.
None. Gawd, easiest one. Wait! I do like watching the Tour de France! There, found one!
22) One nice thing about the person who sent this to you?
Just ONE? She is incredibly beguiling.
23) What's under your bed?
Besides the floor and the hidden dead bodies? There better be NUTHIN', folks.
24) Would you like to be born as yourself again?
Hell to the NO. I've been here, DONE me. I want to try someone else on.
25) Morning person or night owl?
Used to be a night owl, now a morning person.
26) Over easy or sunny side up?
Um, scrambled? Otherwise, not too runny or I get the willies.
27) Favorite place to relax?
By some water. Or, on my sofa - cuddled up with sleepy doggies.
28) Favorite pie?
Blueberry - by a landslide. PLEASE. There is no other.
29) Favorite ice cream flavor?
Moose Tracks. Evil, addictive, should-be-illegal, I-secretly-HATE-you, go-F-yourself, to-die-for Moose Tracks.
30) Of all the people you have tagged, who is the most likely to respond first?
Well, that's the thing - I'm not going to tag anyone directly. After my last tag, so many people said "oh THANK you for not tagging me" - that I'd feel like an asswipe if I tagged ANYONE. So, I'm not going to tag anyone. However, if anyone wants to use this meme - please do consider yourself tagged and I'd love to see your answers!
So, since I once again stripped before you and bared my fragile, shaking soul - maybe you could answer ONE question? One teensy widdle question? Come on, MAN! I'm all ALONE in here!
