The Random Questions, Part 683

1. How old do you look?
I'd say overall I look my age. As to whether I act my age, well, that's more debatable.
2. Where do you live?
In a house in the middle of the North American continent.
3. Are you waiting for something?
Not exactly. I'm just trying to get through the drama of each day without creating any more of it than necessary.
4. What’s one pet peeve of yours that is not common?
It makes me crazy when people say "jew-luh-ree" which seems to be something most people don't even notice.
5. Do you want/have kids?
I have one absolutely delightful 24-year-old son.
6. Have you ever thought about converting your religion?
I've had moments of seriously wondering if I should walk away from so-called "organized religion" for multiple reasons, but it's rarely been about the structure of the worship. It's almost always other people and my own feelings about/relationship with God.
7. Last shocking news you heard?
Apparently a house blew up early this morning in a town about 20 miles south of us. I found out because several friends in the town where I work (about 7 miles closer than we are) felt the ground shake. That's all pretty weird.
8. What was the last thing you drank?
I know this will come as a surprise, but I'm on my second diet Dr. Pepper of the day.
9. Who do you most look like in your family?
Two of my sisters and I took strongly after our dad and grandma (his mom). The other two kids went to the other side of the family for genes.
10. If you could have something right now, anything, what would it be?
Energy.
11. Where does most of your family live?
Hah! I guess the majority is in the "midwest" U.S. depending on your definition of that term: but we're in Tennessee and Colorado and Texas, and England, too.
12. Where did you grow up?
In Colorado.
13. Where do you want to go on vacation?
I'm not fussy. This year, I'm not exactly sure there's a vacation going to happen. Beast certainly cannot travel as things stand now.
14. Have you ever had a panic attack?
Yes, I've been introduced to these over the last year or so. Surprisingly, when things REALLY hit the shitter last summer, the panic attacks subsided a bit. So, that was weird.
15. What can’t you wait for?
...still nothing.
16. When’s the last time you told someone you loved him or her and meant it?
About ten minutes ago.
17. Have your parents ever smoked pot?
I have no idea if they did. Probably not though--they were pretty straight arrow. I can count on one finger the number of times I saw my mom drink booze.
18. Want someone back in your life?
Of course. At this point in my life, my parents and two siblings are gone. I'd take any of them back.
19. What do you order at the bar?
Vodka tonic with a lime twist.
20. When was the last time you cried really, really hard?
When Beast was at the ER a couple of weeks ago. Again.
21. What are your nicknames?
Believe it or not, Cat is not my given name. Nor is it anything even close to my real name.
22. What is your favorite thing to eat with peanut butter?
Honey, on tortillas.
23. Where were you on July 4th, 2008?
According to my old blog, my sister Jean was recovering from brain surgery, and my mom had fallen and whacked her head, but things in my immediate vicinity seem to have been fine.
24. If you could go fo[r]ward in time, how far forward would you go?
Not far, maybe a decade or two. Would like to see Sparky as a middle-aged dude.
25. If you could go back in time, how far back would you go?
Not far, back to when my parents were dating. It would be fun to watch them as kids.

That's cool that you worked in the library in school. We had a program where you could sign up to be a "library assistant" during study halls. With my love of books and a mom who was a librarian that was a no-brainer for me.
