Sunday Stealing

(Link in meme-roll)
Random Twenty

1. Last time you had butterflies in your stomach?
I get butterflies (a.k.a. anxiety) quite often when I'm heading home from work. It's a long bummer of a story.
2. What was your last alcoholic beverage?
I think I had a drink at a P.E.O. meeting a few months ago.
3. Who can you trust?
God. And to a lesser extent, Beast, Amy, Jenny, myself, and a surprisingly large number of people who generally are hiding in the woodwork around me.
4. Where was your first kiss with your current significant other?
Uh, wow, it was towards the end of our freshman year in college. So, 31 years ago this month.
5. Favorite band?
U2.
6. What is something you've learned about yourself recently?
That I'm very bad at making changes in my life for myself when I'm not being held accountable.
7. Do you like anyone?
Nope. Everyone sucks. [Did you not see my answer to #3?]
8. Do you know anyone who is engaged?
Hmmm, no I don't believe I do. I know of some engagements, but I don't know the people myself.
9. What's your favorite number?
Gut-favorite: 16. Chosen favorite: 3.
10. Who was the last person to make you cry?
I teared up at church this morning while we honored our retiring financial secretary. We're honoring her--and she's retiring--because she has fully metastasized cancer that means she'll probably be gone by Father's Day.
11. Did you ever go to camp as a kid?
Nope. Went on a couple of weekend church retreats when I was a teenager, but that's all.
12. When was the last time you cried?
This morning. Really, if you're going to ask, listen to my answers, k?
13. What is one thing you miss about your past?
I miss the mountains. Pretty much daily. After 28 years of living in the flat middle of the country, the mountain-ache isn't quite as strong, but not a day passes that I don't think about the smell, the sky, the weather, the lack of humidity, the vastness .... SOMEthing.
14. What is one thing you've learned about life?
It goes on, with or without my attention.
15. Are you jealous of anyone?
Somehow, for the most part, that emotion has mostly died off over the years.
16. Is anyone jealous of you?
You'd really have to ask them.
17. Has a friend ever used you?
Of course. Depending on the usage, it either ruined the friendship, put it on hold for awhile, or barely registered.
18. Has anyone recently told you that they like you more than as a friend?
Most people say that--if they say anything of the sort at all--which is fine since I'm always hunting for new friends.
19. Who was the last person you drove with?
Sparky went with me to the grocery store after lunch.
20. What are you looking forward to?
... I got nothin'. This should probably worry me, eh?

#6 is a thinker. You may be on to something. Must ponder further.

It's nice to know you can almost pin point the time and place of that first kiss...!

So sorry at reading number 10. Bet she was one gem of a lady, too!
