Sunday Stealing

(Link in meme-roll)
Fifteen Meme
  1. What was your first job like?
  2. My first income was from babysitting. It was ... babysitting. My first job outside of that was at the library. It was a steep learning curve. I liked shelving, hated shelf-reading, and found the weirdo patrons completely unmanageable. My first full-time job was an even steeper learning curve seeing as how I worked for a clinical nutjob.
  3. It's a typical Sunday, how are you spending it?
  4. Now that football is over, it's NASCAR season so we're watching a race and I'm meming and dozing, and running a load of hand-wash in the machine.
  5. What was the happiest day of your life?
  6. There've been a few really good days: Sparky's high school graduation, my wedding day, the day I marched in the Tournament of Roses parade, my college graduation....
  7. What was the best decision you ever made?
  8. Having a kid.
  9. Tell your go-to "pretend" game as a child (who was your alter-ego?)
  10. I didn't have just one. People usually have only one? I had a much bigger imagination than that: I was everything from a cowboy to an Indian princess to an astronaut to an alien.
  11. What email service do you use?
  12. Gmail. And Zimbra. I'm not a fan of Zimbra, but that's what we use at work, because my previous boss thought Outlook was too expensive when "Zimbra does everything Outlook does." Except...it does NOT.
  13. What fandoms would you consider yourself a part of?
  14. I was a GIANT Star Trek: The Next Generation nerd in the early 90s. I don't think I'm much of a fangirl anymore though. I'm much more of a wide knowledge person than a deep knowledge person.
  15. Do you use anything on your lips? (e.g. Chapstick, gloss, balm, lipstick)
  16. Chapstick or other balms, including Burt's Bees products. VERY occasionally I'll throw on some gloss.
  17. How many devices do you own which can access the internet?
  18. At home, I use three. Beast has two smart phones (one personal, one for work), two laptops (one personal one for work), and his tablet.
  19. Last strong smell you can remember smelling?
  20. I have some lotion on that was in the bathroom at church. It's got ginger in it, and it's really strong. And nice, underneath all the overwhelmingness.
  21. If you had to move your birthday to another date, which one would you choose and why?
  22. I would totally move it to summer. November birthdays pretty much suck.
  23. Inspiration behind your blog title?
  24. My first blog was originally named after that Eurhythmics' song. Then I started this one, so it seemed like an obvious choice to name a memes blog with a similar title.
  25. If you could spend a rainy day with anyone in the world, who would you choose and why?
  26. I'd like to spend it with the four members of my family I can't actually apend time with anymore. Just hanging out in the living room talking and bickering would be a blast.
  27. Is there a foreign culture that you love?
  28. Not wholly. I like parts of British culture, and Scottish culture, parts of Italian and Greek, and some Russian cultures. But overall, I'm a cherry-picker: if I like it, I appropriate as much of it as I can, or wish I could.
  29. Do you have a favorite soft drink?
  30. Diet Dr. Pepper, of course.

I would move my birthday by days. It would be so much fun to have a Halloween birthday!
