Swiped from Amy

(this Amy)

Do you need to write down things to remember them?
More and more often, yes. More and more often, I have to do it more than one time, too.
Do you keep a diary/journal?
Just this and Facebook. Well, ok, I have a notebook I take to meetings that I actually sorta journaled in tonight, in hopes of alleviating a massive anxiety attack.
Are you scared of thunderstorms?
I love thunderstorms! I am very afraid of a lot of wind and storms like that.
Do you have any unusual fears or phobias?
They aren't unusual to me, but I really don't like bridges/roads that are just barely above water level.
Whats your favourite Disney movie?
My first reaction was The Lion King, but having looked at this list, I'm revising to say perhaps The Love Bug and/or The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, both of which I'm pretty sure I saw either in an actual theater or at school. Or maybe both.
Have you ever slept in a caravan?
I'm going with the British use of the term, and yes. But not in England.
Have you ever painted a house?
I've painted enough walls to make a pretty good-sized house, but they were not all one house, so no. But yes.
Whats the tallest tree you've ever climbed?
My parents beat the fear of climbing trees into me at a very young age. Maybe not exactly 'fear', but instead the idea that "good girls" don't climb trees, or something. Anyway, I've never climbed a tree in my life.
Have you ever dialed the talking clock?
Not for decades. Probably not since shortly after moving to this state, which would be 20 years. I rely on time.gov exclusively, or my cell phone.
Do you always wear identical socks?
I always intend to, and since I do match them when they come out of the dryer, it usually works out.
Do you live by any motto or philosophy?
There are several that rotate: "I hate publishers!" "Remember, everyone you meet is carrying a heavy load." "It is not your job to complete the task of perfecting the world, but neither are you free to desist from it." "Be grateful for ALL things."
Do you lick the yoghurt or dessert lid?
Not usually. Not unless I'm that hungry. Or if the contents are that yummy.
Do you lick the spoon clean after making something sweet?
Of course! Once must taste-test, after all!
Have you ever played the bongos?
Not in a serious way, no. I'd be a horrible percussionist.
Have you ever handled a snake?
Wow, I don't think I actually have. I've been to programs and encouraged Sparky to do so, but....wow. I need to find a snake!
Have you ever assembled furniture by yourself?
Of course.
When did you last go to the beach?
Last October.
When if ever did you last go to London?
Just about exactly 4 years ago. ...sigh
What do you do to cool down when its hot?
I cool off my feet and the back of my neck. Everything else follows soon enough when those two areas are cool. And I drink plenty of water so I don't dehydrate.
What's the most unusual thing you've ever eaten?
I suppose shredded carrots in orange jello might be considered unusual by some...my brother brings that up often. And we had it every time we had company, or mom wanted to be "fancy." A lot of my mom's cooking was weird like that.
Do you have a favourite mug?
I preferred my dad's mug to anyone else's. [family joke] Oh, wait, you mean coffee cup? Since I don't drink coffee....no.
Do you know any self-defense or martial arts?
I have perfected the Librarian Glare. I don't need to worry about physical defense.
Who's your favourite movie action hero?
I do love the Lethal Weapon movies. So hammy, so funny, so ridiculously stupid.
ave you ever ridden a motorcycle?
I've never driven one, but I've ridden with a couple people. Loved it! Wore helmets both times.
Do you collect anything?
Dust. hah
Really, it's more accrual at this point. So much stuff in this house...so very much... I swear it procreates.
Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?
Belts or at least keeping one's pants around the waist for men. Longer, oversized tops for women. I hate tight clothes. And I hate seeing underwear (or, shudder, butt cracks) on a daily basis.
Do you stick to conventional fashions or like to try and be original?
Nope, I'm a boring jeans-and-T kind of girl.
Have you ever given someone a handmade present?
Not for a long, long time.
Are you introvert or extrovert?
I'm more comfortable as an introvert, but I'm astonishingly good at 'playing' extrovert.
If you could have any feature from an animal what would you want?
I'd love to be able to fly. Or, more realistically and helpfully, swim.
