A Many-Questioned Meme....

Hello all.
I had a terrible day at work yesterday and an even more terrible one today. In fact I feel sick to my stomach at how bad I feel about work.
So, I've stolen a meme from the Internet to take my mind off things:

1. The phone rings. Who do you want it to be? Anybody friendly.
2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart? Sometimes.
3. If you had to kiss the last person you kissed, would you? Sure.
4. Do you take compliments well? No. I don't really believe them.
5. Do you play Sudoku? Yes, I LOVE Sudoku. But I'm awful at it.
6. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, would you survive? I think so. I'm pretty good in a pinch.
7. Do you like nipple rings? Definitely not.
8. Did you ever go to camp as a kid? Yes, I did. And like an idiot, I was even a Girl Scout Camp counselor for one summer in college. I like camping.
10. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew he/she was married what would you do? Probably flirt a little, but have nothing to do with him. I don't date married men. Married men who cheat are slime, plain and simple.
12. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you? I wouldn't mind getting to know someone who isn't Christian. I think different religions are interesting. I don't know how far it would go, because I've never crossed that bridge.
13. Do you like to pursue or be pursued? I like to be pursued. Doesn't everyone?
14. Use three words to describe yourself at the moment: Worried, tired, anxious.
15. Do any songs make you cry? Yes. "Movin' On" by Rascal Flatts, "Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts, "Good Morning Beautiful" by Steve Holy, and "You Can Do Magic" by America.
16. Are you continuing your education? Not any more. I'm finished. I have my Masters, plus 30 hours more, which is as high as you can go without working on a Doctorate. I AM interested in getting my National Board Certification, but not this year.
17. Do you know how to shoot a gun?Yes, but I don't like guns.
18. If your house was on fire, what would be the first thing you grabbed? Other than the kids? The cats, if I could find them. My purse, my documents box, the kids' baby books.
19. Who was the last person you shared a bed with? Aaron.
20. Who do you text the most? It's a tie between my friend Ian, my daughter, and my assistant.
21. Favorite children's book? Gosh, am I supposed to pick just one? "Oh the Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss, "Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse", "Little Women" by Louisa May Alcott, and of course, "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, just for starters.
22. What color are your eyes? Blue/green. I get compliments on them a lot.
23. How tall are you? 5'5".
25. If you could do it over again, start from scratch, would you? No. But if I could still have the kids I have and have married someone else, I would.
26. Any secret admirers...I don't think so.
27. Have you ever token pictures in a photo booth? Yes. Fun ones.
28. When was the last time you were at Olive Garden? A couple of weeks ago.
29. How cool is PS3? I don't know anything about it. We have a Wii.
30. Where was the furthest place you traveled? North - Wisconsin. South - Florida. East - Baltimore, Maryland. West - Denver, Colorado.
32. Do you like mustard? Ick, no.
33. Do you prefer to sleep or eat? Sleep.

37. What movie do you want to see right now? SpiderMan 3.
39. What did you do for New Year's Eve? Stayed here with the kids and my then-boyfriend.
40. Do you think The Grudge was crappy? Didn't watch it.
44. Was your mom a cheerleader? Oh my God, no. My mom is the polar opposite of a cheerleader.
45. Whats the last letter of your middle name? "e".
47. How many hours of sleep do you get a night? I get 5-7 hours. On the weekends, a little more.
48. Do you like care bears? Yes, I do.
49. What do you buy at the movies? A large Diet Coke, some kind of candy.
50. Do you know how to play poker? Yes, but I'm not too good at it.
51. Do you wear your seatbelt? Yes, but only to stop that damn incessant bonging.
52. What do you wear to sleep? Depends on who I'm sleeping with, ha, ha. Usually sleep pants or boxers and a t-shirt.
53. Anything big ever happen in your town? No, but I live across the river from Louisville, Kentucky, where lots of big things happen, like the Derby.
54. Is your hair straight or curly? Naturally wavy, but I like to straighten it.
55. Is your tongue pierced? Uh, no.
56. Do you like Liver and Onions? Never had it.
57.Have you ever been in love? Yes ♥. 3 times, for sure.
58. Do you like funny or serious people better? Funny, usually.

36. Can you do splits?

Actually I can. I used to be really flexable.

Hope you're feeling better today J.

Sayre said...

I hate it when work goes badly. It tends to color your whole week.

I hope you're feeling better now - that was a pretty good meme. I might do it.

Jay said...

Hopefully today will go by fast and you can recover over the weekend!

I read that whole thing! I might just have to do that one too.

FindingHeart said...

Dang, 70 questions?! You got some patience there girl.

Don't like mustard? That poor Coney Island Dawg would be sad without mustard. Ha!! Have a great Mom Day Weekend!!

Fleur de Lisa said...

Hope your weekend is better than your week! :)

Happy Mother's Day.

J, I hope your not-so-good days of last week become a forgotten memory as the days go by.

Showing my ignorance, I confess to looking up "meme" in the dictionary.

"…a cultural unit (an idea or value or pattern of behavior) that is passed from one person to another by non-genetic means (as by imitation); 'memes are the cultural counterpart of genes' " I am proof that one is never too old to learn something new.

But you have never tried liver and onions. I just don't know if I can continue visiting the blog of someone who has never tried liver and onions. (I can understand why someone has never tried rattlesnake or grasshopper.) However, I can be forgiving and pretend that you have tried liver and onions. [I am not sure why this has suddenly become an issue for me.]

You have an interesting, fun blog.
