50 things about me feed

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

wow, I haven't done one of these since MySpace! LOL They are going around on my feed and I do enjoy reading them, so here goes.

that, and there's really nothing new in my world. I'm getting ready to go camping with my hub's work and all their families for the weekend. My oldest has narrowed it down to 3 places, hoping one of them picks her (In San Fran you don't pick a place, they pick you) and still waiting to hear word from our lender, which won't be until after August or so (exasperating!!)

anyhow, not that this will tell you who I am, but enjoy. If you need to know more, why, just ask!!!

I saw a few of these on my feed so I figured I'd do it!

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Yes. The Song "Corinna Corinna"

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
the last time I got on the scale? no...um...OH! I remember, I broke down in my science class with my daughter and threw a paper at the teacher. So, 5 months ago. "ish"

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
If I take my time, like three hours to write my name I like it, otherwise I say "how in the heck did my hand write that??"

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
I am not into lunch meat at all. But if I have to choose it'd be either pastrami or corned beef.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
yep, three girls, a grown man, and two dogs. What do you mean I can't count my husband??

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Wouldn't the crazy girl off of The Breakfast Club? totally.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Probably too much.

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
Yes I do and it surprises me how many of you do too!!

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Not on purpose I wouldn't !! I can't even get into a ferris wheel or elevator without creating a scene fueled with terror.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
granola, or Grape Nuts.....frosted mini's are good too.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
No

12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
Nope...especially in the arms...weakling, legs are awesome though, spiritually, stronger than I realize (aren't we all?) emotionally, I wonder. LOL

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
Mocha Almond Fudge gets me every time.

14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
How they treat people. Really. I tend to be a wallflower and if I hear excessive cackle and gossip I walk away, but if I hear something "nice" I tend to try and blend. weird, but after years of being beat up, you learn to pick and choose.

15. RED OR PINK?
for what? A sunburn would obviously be pink and not red, but I want my lobster cooked red and not pink.

16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
A constant fear of the outside world. It's true. I do. I fear what people think of me, I fear controversy, I fear confrontations....Hey, I'm working on it!!

17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
probaby the ones who don't reciprocate it...I know. I know. see question 16. Thank God for Kim :p Bet she never knew she was my anchor.

18. WHAT IS THE PAUL MCKENNA TECHNIQUE THAT YOU NEED TO WORK ON THE MOST?
who?

19. ANY TATTOOS?
No although I have several Duran Duran pictures incase I ever get the guts...

19. WHAT COLOR SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
light blue.....now I wish I had my hot pink ones I plan on buying...that seems so much more fun to point out then light blue...dirty light blue to beat.

20. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
Was last night: Amy's Light & Lean black bean and cheese enchilada with veggie rice. It was so freaking good for a "tv dinner". I am impressed!!

21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
I kid you not, Pandora just started playing "Rio" by Duran Duran. God Bless America!!! :p

22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
I'd be the mushed up mess that kids have squished together and tore the papers off of and kindof melted into a glob on colors everywhere in the bottom of the box.

23. FAVORITE SMELLS?
Sauteing garlic, coffee beans, baked goodies coming from the oven, the fair foods lingering in the air, and yes, the harbor. I love the smell of the harbor.

24. WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
Volkswagon Service. My bug needs help again.

25. MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY OR BEACH HOUSE?
yes please.

26. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
Football. There's nothing like getting friends over with (even healthy) foods and shouting and fun times....

27. HAIR COLOR?
today is Sandy blonde, I have a brownish red available, but my goal weight will be blue/pink. You know it.

28. EYE COLOR?
For me? I tend to favor brown. There's something about brown eyes that make me melt. Oh, Mine? they're green.

29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
No

30. FAVORITE FOOD?
Silly question. If I had a favorite, I probably wouldn't be on Spark trying to lose the weight. Food goes IN MY BELLY because it's ALL my favorite!!1 Nom Nom Nom, but, if I had to narrow it down to a few: warm brownies, chocolate frosting, coffees, Ruffles original, chili cheese rice (I can eat that all day), notice there was nothing on the "healthy" menu???

31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
Neither, just one that sticks with me for a couple of days. Whether it be a comedy, romance, or drama, or whatever. Just good.

32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
At home was "The Big Miracle" GREAT MOVIE by the way and at a theatre was, was, gosh I think it was too long ago...I remember there was the Miley Cyrus movie but could have sworn I've seen one since...Harry Potter!! That's it.

33. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
White with wolves on it. I strangely get a LOT of compliments on this thing.

34. SUMMER OR WINTER?
Today is summer, but it will soon be winter! Very good.

35. HUGS OR KISSES?
don't both entail touching? I used to love both, but apparently those kind of things get one into trouble so I'll say neither. :p

36. FAVORITE DESSERT?
I thought I answered this with favorite foods, but okay: warm chocolate brownies, chocolate frosting, Ruffles original potato chips.

37. STRENGTH TRAINING OR CARDIO?
I'm guessing this is a "prefer" question? I prefer to sit on the couch and watch people do these things. But, as I have to pick from one of these two: ST It doesn't put me out of breath as much.

38. COMPUTER OR TELEVISION?
I'm on the computer.

39. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
I'm not. But looking forward to the textbook associated with Forensic Anthropology!!

40. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?
Sierra College

42. FAVORITE SOUND?
Children laughing, 80s music playing in the background, the neighbors washing machine agitating through the walls (it's comforting and I know I don't have to move the clothes to the dryer)

43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
Duran Duran

44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
I don't know, I'm still trying to get there. :p

45. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
um....nope.

46. WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
It was in fact, NOT in a barn, but a hospital. True. California.

47. WHERE ARE YOU LIVING NOW?
Why do you want to know? I paid my taxes!! Who are you?? What do you want? California

48. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR HOUSE?
I wish I had one, but all of California houses around here are mud color....so I'll say mud.

49. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR CAR?
blue. Geeeeez, is the person who created this quiz trying to find me or something???

50. DO YOU LIKE ANSWERING 50 QUESTIONS?
Sure. why not.
