A. Are you at all artistic?
Not in the visual medium. I like to write and create that way (except that I don't when no one's pushing me to do it).
B. What are your favorite burger toppings?
Avocado, bacon, olives, caramelized onions, but probably not all at the same time.
C. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
D. Diamond or pearls?
Pearls. I had a strand I lent to a friend and then we stopped being friends. Bummer.
E. What exotic pet would you like to have?
I don't need anything wilder than my husky-boy. A kid on the street asked me the other day if he was a were-wolf.
F. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
Sleepwalk With Me. Look up Mike Birbiglia if you don't know him!
G. What is the worst gift you have ever received?
Hmm. My husband's aunt gave me, him, and his brother identical gifts (sort of grab-bags, with multi-tools, a digital camera, a nightlight, etc.) and let us all open them separately. I guess it wasn't the gifts themselves but that fact that we had to act surprised, and by the third person opening the same stuff, it was hard to do. But there was candy in the bags, so that was good.
H. What habit would you like to be able to break?
Automatically discounting myself.
I. If you could be invisible for one day, what would you do?
Maybe just choose a random person to follow, to observe. I think I'd make a terrible invisible person, though, because I like to interact and laugh, so I'd be discovered quickly. Maybe I'd drive my car around to freak people out.
J. What do you like about your job?
Right now, that my boss is out of town!
K. Did you ever learn to knit?
Yes, I got high-school credit for taking a knitting class. My mom was the teacher. I haven't kept up with it, though. I do sometimes 'cast-on' with the hanging strings on my sweatshirts.
L. Would your friends describe you as 'ladylike'?
No, though I have started wearing makeup occasionally and don't just wear t-shirts every day anymore.
M. What is your middle name?
N. Are you a night owl or an early bird?
Early bird, only because it's the only other choice. I guess it's gotten easier getting up over the years. But 6:20 still came early today.
O. Do you like okra?
Yes, when it's breaded and fried.
P. When was the last time you cleaned out your purse?
Last week or so.
Q. What is one of your favorite quotes?
I can't think of any right now. I do, however, quote from TV and movies WAY more than a person should.
R. What do you have on the outside of your refrigerator?
Alphabet magnets, a few pictures, a clipping from the newspaper that says, "Some dude wants to give UW a big rock"
S. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
T. Do you prefer a truck or car?
U. What is under your bed?
A couple of boxes with that stuff we can't get rid of, but obviously don't need to have out, because it's been in a box for three years.
V. Did you wear a veil when you got married?
W. Can you whistle?
Yes. When I was in Ecuador for Christmas, I missed having winter weather, so I spent probably half an hour whistling Christmas carols. I don't think the neighbors liked it.
X. Do you know what a Xenopus is?
Y. Do you eat yogurt?
I love this local maple yogurt I found.
Z. Do you enjoy zombie movies?
You are invited to copy and paste this and insert your own answers. I hope you do. It is a fun way to get to know people a little better!
