Do you know any couples that have been married for a very long time?
Huh. Well. My parents, technically, have been married since 1941, but since they're both deceased... My oldest sister has been married since 1966. I know people who got married in the 1950s. I've been married since 1986.What are you tired of people telling you?
Here's the takeaway, though: staying married means nothing if it's only because of inertia and fear. Having a years-long relationship is important, but it doesn't have to be a marriage. A good friendship is at least equally as important, someone who knows you when you were just starting to become You. THAT's important.
I'm tired of hearing "shut up!" from the universe at large, but that's because I keep not doing it. Actual, individual things I'm tired of involve the endless library/ian comments and the word, "Sorry." I'm really fucking tired of "Sorry." Don't apologize (again), just STOP DOING IT!Which type of ice cream do you prefer?
My gut reaction was to say 'home-made' but I'll go with vanilla with my choice of toppings.Do you have a little sister? What’s her name?
I am the little sister!! I do, however, have a couple of nieces less than 10 years younger than me who sort of fulfilled that purpose in my childhood. Lots of the same perks, less of the concurrent abhorrence. The oldest one turned 47 on Friday; the younger one turned 44 a couple of weeks ago.What was the last movie you watched on TV?
It didn't make much of an impression as I don't honestly remember. I'm just awful at remembering movies....If the internet was not available right now, what would you do instead?
What I should be doing even though the 'net is fine: READING! I've got two seriously overdue books that are nowhere near being finished.Do you complain a lot?
More than I should, for sure.Name a movie that your favorite actor is in.
At this point, if I said "Star Wars," that would include almost everyone (mostly white people) in Hollywood, wouldn't it? ;)Do you like your toes?
My toes are awesome!!Would you rather go to an authentic haunted house or an ancient temple?
Temple I suspect a haunted house would have a terminal case of dustiness, and that doesn't sound fun to me.Have you ever had champagne? Did you like it?
Huh. The first time I got blackout-drunk with the vomits it was on cheap champagne (13 glasses in half an hour--dumbass). Ruined the cheap stuff forever. I do like a good Dom, but it has to be pricey. It's really the only thing I'm fussy about in terms of taste.Are there any seashells in your room?
There are!What was the reason for the last time you went outside?
I was checking to see what Beast was doing that involved thumping and banging near the front porch. The answer: breaking up ice.Do you like fruity or minty gum?
Minty is preferred.Are you looking forward to any day of this month?
Tuesday is Groundhog Day, which is a BFD around here. Wednesday is Sparky's birthday. Valentine's Day is approaching. I don't know if I'm really "looking forward" to all of those, but they do mean that winter is closer to ending.What was the last graduation you attended?
Sparky's, last May. Coldest freakin' day of the month, which was the exact opposite of Beast's and my graduation 30 years ago when it was the hottest freakin' day of the month.Do you rummage through the $5 movie bin at Walmart every time?
Nope.What day of the week do you usually do laundry?
Saturday. Though I've got a couple of loads going today to finish up yesterday's work.Do you like using air fresheners?
I've had the same can in the powder room for 15 years. So, I don't go through much of it, no.Are your nails ever painted red?
Sometimes. I think this summer is going to bring a whole new palette of colors. My nail polish is pretty old.When you were a baby, did you have a favorite blanket?
Probably. It never turned into a 'thing' though.Ever been on a cruise?
Nope. Well, dinner cruises a couple of times, but not real ones.Would you rather go to Alaska or Russia?
Russia!! I would LOVE to visit St. Petersburg in the summer, and also Irkutsk.Strawberries or bananas?
Depends on time and season and a lot of other things. Generally, strawberries, I guess.Are you wearing socks?
Yes. It's winter in the Midwest, damper than blazes out there and my feet are ice blocks. 'Tis the season.When’s the last time you went to the mall?
Good heavens. It's been a couple of years, I think!
