Inside jokes

(Found here)

Are you afraid of clowns?
Of course not. My son is, and I think it's kind of ridiculous, though I do at least try to take it seriously (sorta) now.
Do you watch American Horror Story?
Have you ever slept in past noon?
It's noon somewhere. And yes, I have, though extremely rarely.
How many relationships have you been in this year?
I know quite a few people and have relationships with most of them. The only dood I'm sleeping with, though, is my husband.
Favorite memory from your childhood?
I had a pretty excellent childhood. Can't think of the "best" memory, just a lot of good ones that make me feel safe and loved and cared for.
What's your favorite cereal?
Kind of flips between Froot Loops and Cinnamon Toast Crunch, though I only eat cereal as a snack, not a meal.
Twitter or Facebook?
I have accounts both places. I check in on Twitter about ever third month. Facebook I pretty much live on.
Do you like to paint your nails?
I take care of my own pedicures all summer, but in the winter my nails stay bare. No fingernail polish--I bite my nails.
Do you have long or short hair? Or is it medium length?
Short- to medium-length.
Do you like kids?
I like happy, non-sassy kids. So, like babies and 8-year-olds. OK, I actually don't mind any age kid, but I'm not a fan of groups of kids.
What's the coolest place you've ever been to?
The coldest was Siberia in January--actually, China was way colder, but less pretty. The coolest? Oh, a lot of places I've been have been cool in different ways.
Do you consider yourself social or shy?
I need a fairly long lead time to feel comfortable being social.
Which do you hate more, the dentist, or the doctor's office?
I like my dentist a lot, as well as my primary doctor's office. But generally, dealing with doctor's offices just bloodywell SUCKS. The gyrations we've gone through in the past month...though much of that has been caused by @&$(@* insurance companies.
What's the weather like where you live?
It's finally gotten wintry. We even had a little snow last night, most of which is gone already today.
Are you an only child?
Not exactly. There's a 10-year gap between me and my next-older sibling, so in a lot of ways I was kind of flying solo.
What's the closest object to you that is green?
The label on my hand-lotion has some green on it.
When is it too early to put the Christmas tree up?
Oh, I don't care when you put it up, but when its needles are all on the floor, you need to get it out of the house!
Is your hair dyed?
Nope. I haven't dyed my hair in about 3 years.
What's the worst movie you've ever seen?
The one that sticks in my head is Snow Dogs.
What's your dream car?
I'd love a Jeep Cherokee, but only if I had somewhere to drive it.
Have you ever punched anyone?
My brother, my husband, but in the guys-screwing-around kind of punch, not a left-hook. I totally fight like a girl.
What song annoys you the most?
I still can't listen to anything Geddy Lee is singing. Mariah Carey is pretty close behind.
What did you do today?
Errands, shopping, gift-wrapping, standing in stupid lines at stores, driving back and forth to the same place twice, napping....
Are you happy with your life right now?
In general, yes. There are certainly things I would like changed, but one thing at a time....
What time do you usually go to bed?
Sometime between 9 and midnight.
Do you sleep with stuffed animals?
I do.
Are there any conspiracy theories you believe in?
I don't search them out, no.
Have you ever shot a gun?
Only cap guns when I was a kid. Oh, and nail guns....
What's your favorite thing about winter?
Once winter officially arrives, the days start getting longer! YAY!

What's the most fun thing you've done this week?
This sounds nuts, but going to the laundromat yesterday was pretty fun.
What mood are you in right now?
OK. Not thrilled about working tomorrow.
What's the best concert you've been to?
I haven't been to a concert in a few years. Unless you mean a concert at church, in which case last Sunday.

My BED!!

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Damn. I'll be 62. ...moving on...
Who/what do you turn to when you need help?
God. Friends. Mostly I've been trying to just breathe.
What's your biggest wish?
Biggest lie you've ever told?
So many lies.....
How realistic do you think you are?
Very much so.
Favorite pizza topping?
Canadian bacon. Or if it's a white pizza, chicken, bacon, and spinach.
What food do you eat the most?
Who is your favorite singer/songwriter?
I'm having a full on brain-fart. I can't think of anyone super-excellent.

Green or purple grapes?

October 2004.

Which cities/states have you lived in? You can just name states if you want.
I've lived in 6 cities in 3 states.
Tell me about how your parents met. How old were they?
They went on a blind date arranged by friends who were engaged. Lucille ended up the secretary at my high school for many many years. Anyway, I'm not sure exactly how old they were; maybe 18 and 20 or thereabouts. They got married at 19 and 21.

Been there, done that, and have even sent my offspring off to college, from which he has FINALLY completed coursework for his chem degree.

I love that when the wind blows, it feels like I'm on a ship.
When washing your hands, do you wet your hands or put soap on first?
Wet hands, then soap.
If you had to pick one chore to do today, what would it be?
"One chore..." ha ha ha I'm a grown up; there is no "one chore per day" rule.
When was the hardest you ever cried? What was the circumstance?
The only time I was actually on the verge of hysteria that I'm pretty clear on is last February when the house flooded in the middle of the night and Beast was bleeding and unresponsive in the bathroom where he'd broken the shower handle falling on it.

Wherever. I'm not fussy.

Probably history.
When it comes to relationships, are you the jealous type?
Not particularly.
What do you usually order at Jamba Juice?
I've been inside one precisely once and I don't even think I had anything. It all looked gross.

By the time I finished the post, I'd used up all of yesterday's AND today's words. ;-)

Good God this is long.

And we went to Jamba Juice once. In a 'burb. I bought. We'd been shopping for couches or recliners.

Cat. said...

Yup, right by the La-Z-Boy store along Randall Raceway. I don't remember having anything while you smoothied away. It all looked disgustingly healthy. ;-)

You are my gateway to all things shopping-related. Still.
