(Link in meme-roll)
CAPS LOCK Meme

1. YOU HAVE 10 BUCKS AND NEED TO BUY SNACKS AT A GAS STATION. WHAT DO YOU GET?
Just for myself? A liter of Diet Dr. Pepper. Cheetos. Butterfinger. And a banana. Usually, I'm buying for the whole car, so if that were the case...the Dr. Pepper, a liter of Pepsi Max, a liter of water or Sprite, and whatever the others wanted to eat.
2. IF YOU WERE REINCARNATED, WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU WOULD BE?
The way things are going, I don't think I'll be advancing much. I'd prefer not to fall down the ladder into invertebrate-land, but it would be awesome to come back as a wolf.
3. WHO’S YOUR FAVORITE REDHEAD?
Sparky of course.
OLD photo--at least 5 years ago--his hair is MUCH shorter now!
4. WHAT DO YOU ORDER WHEN YOU’RE AT AN I.H.O.P. OR BREAKFAST PLACE?
Sometimes I get a skillet (mix of ingredients with potatoes and eggs on top). Sometimes I get an omelet. Sometimes I get pancakes. It really depends on my mood.
5. LAST BOOK YOU READ?
The last book I was reading (this morning, because it's an ebook that expires in 3 days!) was We Others : New and Selected Stories (Steven Millhauser). The last one I finished was Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World (Mark Miodownik). I've currently got six other books going, though.
6. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
I have no idea.
7. DESCRIBE YOUR FAVORITE PAIR OF UNDERWEAR.
Uhm....? I don't really play favorites in this part of my life. I have a couple of UNfavorites that I should just toss for various reasons.
8. DESCRIBE THE LAST TIME YOU WERE INJURED.
I'm usually walking wounded, being disastrously klutzy, but the latest pain situation has been sciatica in my right leg from hip to calf. All day yesterday. Yuck.
9. IF YOU COULD INVENT ONE THING, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
A Motivationer, for when I just "don' wanna!"
10. ROCK CONCERT OR SYMPHONY?
I prefer the crowds at Symphony Hall these days.
11. WHAT IS THE WALLPAPER ON YOUR CELLPHONE?
It's a photo I took on vacation last year of our tabletop in a restaurant:
12. FAVORITE SODA?
Surely you know this by now....
13. FLAVOR OF PUDDING?
Butterscotch.
14. WOULD YOU RATHER HAVE A PEDICURE OR A MANICURE?
Pedicure. My hands are ugly and I'm not at all interested in fake nails.
15. ANY BUTTONS OR BLINKIES IN YOUR SIDEBAR?
I dunno; you tell me?
16. HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE ON YOUR BLOGROLL?
I have 136 open feeds in my Inoreader list. Not all of them are 'live' anymore, but most of them publish 2-3 hits a day. Right now I have 666 posts to read. Yeah, not gonna happen.
17. WHAT’S THE LAST PIECE OF CLOTHING YOU BOUGHT?
It's a bit coincidental that I did buy underwear yesterday in light of question #7.


RaNdOm Meme

1. If you were to attend a costume party tonight, what or whom would you go as?

Pop-ups. Gmail's spam filter is quite good.

9. Let's say a brick fell on your foot, and your kid is standing right next to you, what is your 'cleaned up’ swear word?

Too loud. I love love love love love quiet.

Long hoarhound sticks. We have a general store right around the corner, actually. They don't have candy on the counter, though, just made-to-order deli sandwiches. Times have changed in the land of general stores!
13. What is the most distinguishing landmark in your city?

I'm standing firm with the $50.

The General Store in my area is about 5 blocks from my home. It is, unfortunately in a horrible area. I used to stop there for coffee in the morning. The LAST time I stopped, there was butcher paper over the glass which encased the candy. Someone came in for coffee, candy and CASH during the night. Just ruined the place. I guess the times aren't like they used to be, anywhere. Have a great week! And... I wish I were more Christlike than I am... Thanks for the reminder.

CountryDew said...

Oh good, another Partridge Family lunch box. My masters degree is relatively useless, but I am glad I have it. If nothing else, I can tell my husband he has to call me master.

Kwizgiver said...

I'm embarrassed that I only had brown paper bags for my lunches. Although, I ate school lunch until high school.

Zippi Kit said...

Brown bags were the fashion when I went to school. It was what we all had for years. I was geared up to start back to Uni when I was 29 but it didn't happen, so let those snorts of pride out! Good for you!. Having just watched a movie about second chances, I regret not doing it.
