Sunday Stealing

(Link in meme-roll)
Shout Out The Answer Meme

Do you shout out the answers at the TV while watching quiz shows?
Only if I'm alone. I've discovered how annoying it is when someone does that while you're trying to watch (and figure out the answers).
Do you get over-involved with TV or movie plots at times?
Define "over-involved." lol
I've dreamed about TV shows. And yes, I do find myself pondering the show--or rather the characters--at odd times at work or while doing chores.
What's the highest hill or mountain you've ever climbed?
I grew up in the mountains of Colorado. While I never "climbed a mountain" in the sense of people doing Everest, I've been up my share of 12,000-foot+ high peaks. And rooted around the sides of several of those for fun too. From bottom to top in one go, that would be Big Squaw Mountain with my mother-in-law, Beast, and his brother in about 1988.
Do you have a piggy bank?
I do. One of these days I'll take a picture of it so I can post it. I love that bank!
What's the fastest you've ever traveled in a car?
TOO fast. I was in a car going close to 100 mph in traffic probably 20 years ago. It was exhilarating and stupid as hell.
Could you ever hand milk a cow?
Probably not. I suspect whichever cow got stuck with me would be pretty irritated pretty quickly, and I'd probably get smacked with a hoof or two. Also, I don't think my hands would hold up long enough. Yay, RSI.
Which was your favorite science? Biology, Physics or Chemistry?
Bio, once we got past cells. I hated the always-too-lengthy focus on cells, but systems, oh yeah! Loved muscles, skeletons, even nerves and digestive systems! OK, not a fan of all the stomach enzymes, but otherwise......SO COOL!
Have you ever had a surprise party? (that was an actual surprise)
I had two surprise baby showers before Sparky was born! Clearly, my brain wasn't working very well that both times I was 100% clueless. I threw a surprise graduation party for Beast when he got his MBA--at our house! He had no idea.
Have you ever warn clothing with the labels/tags still attached?
Nowadays, with the printed-on tags, I do it all the time. :-) And yes. Not too long ago, someone had to peel something off the back of my leg off of pants I was wearing for the first time. That was a little embarrassing.
Have you ever slipped on a banana skin?
Nope. I wonder where that comes from? Did people used to do that? Or was that a stand-in for all the piles of manure that used to litter streets prior to cars?
Are you scared of the dark?
Nope. I actually love darkness. I fully respect the power of darkness to mess with our senses, though. Ever been underground in a cave with no flashlight? Yeah. Awesome-scary.
Do you have a lawyer?
Hmmm. I know a fair number of attorneys, but I haven't paid any of them recently. We really need to go get our wills updated, though. Soon.
If you had a paid year off, what would you want to do?
Travel! I would love to do a world cruise.
How long did you[r] last phone call last?
...I can't even remember the last time I used a phone outside of work calls. My last work call, yesterday, was probably only a minute of actual phone time, with a period on hold in the middle. Personal call.....jeez, I think it's been over a week, when I call someone in Al-Anon about missing a meeting where I had meant to drop off boxes.
Have you ever helped someone across the road?
Yup. Everyone in my family is older than me, and many of them are or have been frail.
Have you ever been wolf whistled in public?
Ugh, thank God I'm old now!! I was first wolf-whistled while sitting on my front lawn when I was about 11. Who the FUCK does that?
