Here's your link, joiners!
34. HAVE YOU BEEN OUT OF YOUR HOME COUNTRY?
Sure, I have. I went to Canada several times as a kid, but I lived in Central NY, so that was kind of a given. I've been to Mexico, Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Panama, Italy (and Sicily), Spain, France, Monaco, Greece, and Croatia. And if they count, the USVI, Puerto Rico, & Guam. I think that's it? For now...
Chocolate. Pizza - but GOOD pizza, like from a real New York-style pizzeria. None of this Domino's crap. And sexy black men. (Yes, I really did just say that. What of it?)
37. FIRST JOB?
The first one I actually got a real, paper-in-hand paycheque for was as a cashier at a local grocery. I loved that job. My customers loved me. When I graduated high school and moved away, one of them bought me some lottery tickets. I didn't win a dime.
38. EVER DONE A PRANK CALL?
Yes. I confess I've done my share. I only do them when I have a really hilarious idea, though. Rob and I have done a few together, and we've laughed like fools for days afterward. Very mature couple, we are.
39. DO YOU THINK EVERYONE OUT THERE HAS A SOUL MATE?
Yes, but I don't believe we're limited to only ONE. You just end up with the one (or two, or three) that you meet first, if you're lucky enough to do so.
40. WHAT WERE YOU DOING BEFORE YOU DID STEALING?
Returning an email to a friend in Australia.
41. HAVE YOU EVER HAD SURGERY?
Yeah, I'm no stranger to anesthesia. Aside from dental surgeries, I've had two or three surgical LEEPs (Swagbucks it), three emergent c-sections, a hysterectomy (after the failed LEEPs), and gastric bypass. I'm hoping to top that off with a full body lift sometime this year.
42. WHAT DO YOU GET COMPLIMENTED ABOUT MOST?
My eyes, my smile, and, now that I've lost a couple hundred pounds, my changed physique.
43. HAVE YOU EVER HAD BRACES?
Twice. And I really need them a third time, because you can't tell at all. I hate my teeth. My jaw is too small. I've had 8 or 10 teeth pulled and still need more yanked to get them permanently straight!
44. WHAT DO YOU WANT FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY?
I'll be 35 in September, and I've told my husband what I want, but I can't post that here! You'll just have to use your imagination.
45. HOW MANY KIDS DO YOU WANT AND WHAT DO YOU WANT THEIR NAMES TO BE? (OR IF YOU HAVE KIDS, TELL US ABOUT THEM.)
I want two kids. I've had four. Ha!
46. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
No, but I came this-close to being named Eleanor after my paternal grandmother. If I was a boy, I would have been named Clayton, after no one that I know of.
47. WHAT IS THE BIGGEST TURN OFF OF THE SEX YOU'RE ATTRACTED TO?
Arrogance. No one is better than anyone else. I don't care how hot you are, how much money you have, what kind of job you do, where you went to school, what you've done in your life, what kind of car you drive, what you eat, or where you shop. You're still no better than the rest of us.
Also, smoking. If a guy is drop-dead sexy, and then he lights up, he's dead to me.
48. WHAT IS ONE THING YOU LIKED ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL?
I had an amazing group of friends, and I managed to get myself a stellar education.
49. WHAT KIND OF SHAMPOO DO YOU USE?
Right now it's Aveeno Nourish something-or-other, but I switch frequently.
50. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
I do. I think I write very nicely.
51. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
Turkey Pastrami *licks lips*
52. ANY BAD HABITS?
Of course, we all have them. I'm self-indulgent, and that pretty much leads to all my problems.
And I have a potty mouth comparable to my Navy husband's - since long before he met me!
53. ARE YOU A JEALOUS PERSON?
Not really. I can be, but if I really think about it, I just enjoy the attention of my friends and lover(s) and don't like it when someone else gets what I perceive to be my share.
54. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
I don't know. I'm obnoxious and a huge pain in the ass. Probably not. I'm better from a distance.
55. DO YOU AGREE WITH FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS?
Do I agree with it? That's weird phrasing. If it works for you, hey. Go for it.
56. DO LOOKS MATTER?
Studies show that people couple up with other people who have a similar degree of physical beauty, so yes, it would appear that looks do matter. To me, personality and intelligence matter more.
57. HOW DO YOU RELEASE ANGER?
I yell and say a lot of bad words. I tried working on that in therapy, but we didn't get very far before I quit that therapist. I still need to find a new one...
58. WOULD YOU RATHER GAIN 58 POUNDS OR LOSE 58 POUNDS?
At this point, if I lost 58 pounds, I'd be sickly-looking. Still, I'd rather lose the weight than gain even 5 pounds back!
59. WHAT'S YOUR MAIN GOAL IN LIFE?
To learn contentment, and to raise three happy, productive, and kind children.
60. WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE TOY AS A CHILD?
It changed over the years. I loved my Pound Puppies and Cabbage Patch Kids - and do NOT call them "dolls"!
61. HOW MANY NUMBERS ARE IN YOUR CELL PHONE?
It says I have 321 contacts.
62. WERE YOU A FAN OF BARNEY AS A LITTLE KID?
Hell-to-the-no. Even less so as a parent. Unfortunately, my kids enjoyed the big purple guy.
63. DO YOU USE SARCASM?
Does the Pope shit in the woods?
64. MASHED POTATOES OR MACARONI AND CHEESE?
Mashed potatoes. With cheese, corn, and sautéed onions. And lots of butter. Do not even THINK about putting mayonnaise in my mashed potatoes. Gross. I am NOT a Southern girl.
65. WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR IN A LOVER?
A big d*ck, what else? BAHAHAHAHAHA, I'm so wrong.
66. WHAT ARE YOUR NICKNAMES?
Well, Smellyann, of course. Which came from Mellie-Ann, my dad's nickname for me. My friends dubbed me "Bubblehead" in high school. It was - and remains - appropriate.
67. FAVORITE SUPERPOWER?
I would give almost anything to be able to fly....
