What's up, fellow thieves? Link up here if you're puzzling along with the rest of us!
Stolen from: Love me some surveys
What time is it?
Right this minute, it's 8:08 PM, a time that my high school boyfriend, Ben, and I dubbed "Digital BOB time." It was OUR time to think of each other.
- Quick. What’s the first green thing you see?
I have four bottles of JAFRA Nail lacquer on my desk in front of me. I have ugly feet, with stubby little toes, and I'm always wearing flip-flops. Those toenails MUST be painted. I don't know why; it's like a law.
- Do you like those Sudoku puzzles?
I went through my Sudoku craze a while back, when they were immensely popular. I'm a fan, but I wore it out.
- Do you own a plaid shirt?
I have a couple. That same boyfriend, Ben, used to wear plaid flannel shirts in high school, and I stole a couple. They'd be too big for me, now. What is this, Ben Day?
- What’s your favorite kind of pie?
If you've never had (my) Apple Cream Pie, then you are seriously missing out on some taste bud delight. I love any fruit pie, though. I could get all kinds of chubby again on pie alone!
- Have you read a book today?
Unless going through the stack of magazines that came in the mail yesterday and today counts - before relegating them to the donation pile - then I haven't read diddly. P.S. Does anyone want a thousand new issues of as many different magazines? Will not deliver. ;)
- Do you like going to museums?
I love museums! I'd be too timid to do something like this, though. I'd be afraid to piss off a docent!
- Have you ever been to Washington D.C.?
- I have been several times. It's always exciting to visit, but I hate the driving there!
- Have you ever been to the state of Washington?
Not yet; it's on my "must" list. Hubs lived there before we met. I think he misses Rainier Beer as much as anything from those days!
- Do you like apple juice?
I love everything apple, juice included. My favorite kind was the big $10 glass jug of organic apple juice from the little organic shoppette in the Virginia Beach Farmer's Market. (Definitely worth a visit there and across to the fishmonger, Uncle Chuck's, for crab cakes if you're in town!)
How cold is it outside?
It's 69ºF here in Homestead, at the butt-crack of Miami-Dade County, Florida. Don't hate, but I'm freezing.
- Have you ever taken a course in Chemistry?
Here's a little history lesson: At the University of Miami, I double-majored in Marine Science and Biology. I wanted, too, to triple-minor in Chemistry, Mathematics, and Spanish, but they wouldn't let me if I wanted to graduate in three years as I did. So I picked Chemistry. The short answer to this question is Yes, plenty. And I loved it. My sister-in-law, Jessica, is a Chemist.
- Do you like to draw?
I like to doodle, but my 10yo daughter, Sophia, is always drawing. Sometimes she'll do something like this, with My Little Pony characters, while other times she invents her own characters with all kinds of background into who they are. Right now she's working on a story about some of those; I am eagerly awaiting its arrival in my email inbox! She has a bit of a loyal fanbase on Facebook with her doodles. I'm quite proud of her, as you can tell!
- What do you put on your french fries?
That ^^^ is so true, isn't it? Historically, I only put a bit of salt on my fries, but I'm learning to appreciate the addition of ketchup. Unless I'm at a fair, and then I want tons of melty, gooey cheese and a whole lotta vinegar on them. YUM!
- Do you like everything to match?
Not necessarily, but I like things to at least coordinate. I love chaos and spontaneity as much as I love symmetry and order. Call me crazy (and I am)!
- Do you like mustard?
I detest mustard. I loathe and abhor it. No. I just can't even.
- Would you ever work at a movie theater?
I don't see why not, if I needed a job and they were hiring...
- Do you have a phone charger in your car?
Yes. Is it just me, or do they never charge as fast as the block in the house?
- Have you ever slept through an alarm?
Uh, yeah. Last night, I couldn't sleep at all. It was about 0500 this morning when I finally crashed. I set my alarm for 0900, and I missed it. I had so much today today, and I accomplished exactly none of it. GO, ME!
- Do you like pineapple on pizza?
It's my favorite, favorite topping. Hold the ham, please!
- Do you like to hold hands?
Generally, only when I'm not in a hurry. I'm always in a hurry.
- Do you want a tattoo?
I don't know. I feel like I should want a tattoo, because I have piercings and those go kind of hand-in-hand, but I don't like the permanence of a tat. I am so capricious and want to change things all the time about my look, and I have so many ideas I'd want to incorporate into that one perfect thing, so... And that is my struggle. Haha! Hubs has nine and wants a hundred more.
- When is the last time you ordered from a catalog?
I maxed out my Victoria's Secret card around Christmastime. Sophia and I live in their yoga pants all week, and the three of us girls love their sports bras! ;) #AngelForever
Do you know anyone who has a collection of old records?
Hubs and I each had some. The Eric Clapton one was mine. Many of ours were damaged in our last move, from Virginia Beach to Miami. Those packers were something else...!
What’s the name of the gas station you last stopped at?
Racetrac, for $10 worth of gas at $1.69/gallon. Come on, 99¢ gas!
- What was the first song you heard today?
"Kiss," one of my favorite songs by Prince. I have it on the I♥Radio 80s station today.
- Have you ever gotten a magazine subscription as a gift?
Yes; most recently, my sister-in-law Gail gave us National Geographic. She gave the kids the Jr. version. Love it!
- What was the last video you watched on YouTube?
Okay... please don't make fun of me. Okay, go ahead! I'm a huge fan of Justin Bieber's current, newist album. I love every song released so far. I was looking for an explicit version of "Love Yourself" on YouTube out of curiosity, but I couldn't find one. Lord help me; I'm turning into a 2016 Belieber! o_O
- Have you ever sacrificed something for someone you love?
Hey, listen. I'm a wife. I'm raising three kids. I have two dogs, and we have four cats. I love them all, so there is a lot of sacrificing going on. Most recently, I ignored the incredibly strong desire to pick up some delicious Publix cannoli in favor of putting more gas in the car. Sophia's horse, Buddy, is injured right now, and she needs to be at the farm every day to take care of him. That takes a lot of gas. The cannoli can wait.
- Have you ever had your picture in the newspaper?
Growing up, I had in the paper a few times for various academic achievements. I don't think I have since then, but that's probably a good thing!
Thanks for stopping by!
