A Little Q & A

First, let me say Thank You for playing the weird game. What fun! Who else likes liver and onions but doesn't eat them at home? I'm going to have to find some liver and onions now, thanks to Kathy.

I was visiting Keri's blog, Stripey Cat Production, and she had this questionnaire she'd swiped from someone else's blog. It looked like fun, so I thought I'd swipe it from her. Except I put my own answers in. I mean, hers were good and all, but. You know. Feel free to swipe it yourself, or answer here.

1. If your doctor told you TODAY that you were pregnant, what would you say
WHAT?!?! I would absolutely flip. COOL!!! Then, How on earth did this happen?

2. When was the last time you flew in a plane?
Last summer I flew to Macon, GA to attend my cousin's wedding. It was beautiful! And hot.

3. What did the last text message you sent say?
Nothing. I can't text message to save my life. All those little letters. Makes me wanna cuss like they do in the comics. !!@#$!

4. What features do you find most attractive in the preferred sex?
Definitely a tight rear end. Yeah. Of course, I'm a product of the eighties, when Mel Gibson and Arnold had butt shots in nearly every movie.

5. What is a goal you would like to accomplish in the near future?
The NEAR future? Lose another 20 pounds.

6. Shoe size?
Eleven. Psh. Don't get me started.

7. Been to Mexico?
No. Never been out of the country or west of Santa Fe.

8. When is the last time you had a massage?
Never. I don't like touching very much. Sensitive skin. Touch me wrong and I holler. My poor Hunny.

9. What was the last TV show you watched? I can't remember. I'm trying to remember the last time I watched TV. I think it was Saturday Night Live while at the hotel at Christmas.

10. What are your plans for the weekend?
Hunny and Little Guy have a Pinewood Derby for Cub Scouts Saturday. Other than that? Homework.

11. If your significant other asked you to marry them TODAY what would you say?
I would say a definite yes. :) Maybe twice yes. I'd want a real honeymoon this time, though.

12. What is in the back seat of your car right now?
I have no idea.I think there's a small plate and probably someone's socks.

13. What were you doing at 8 am this morning?
Seeing the last child off on the bus, then hopping in the shower!

14. If you could marry any celebrity today who would it be?
I don't think I could marry a celebrity. If I HAD to ... nope, couldn't do it. (But if I HAD to, it might be Mel Gibson, without all his issues - rowr!)

15. Have you ever been to a strip club?
No. never been to a club either. Quite content to never go to one, either.

16. What is the best ice cream flavor?
It's a toss up between Ben n Jerry's Chubby Hubby and Godiva's Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Truffle. Mmmmmm.

..17. What is the last sporting event you watched
I watched several football games last year right after we moved to Tulsa. Very exciting. Or so I'm told.

18. Ever go camping?
Yes! We last went camping for fall break and had a great time! We love to camp. There is just nothing like camp coffee on the Coleman stove.

19. Last phone call?
My Hunny, from work. He says he lost eight pounds this week, the first week of The Biggest Loser at work. Yay!

20. Are you allergic to anything?
Once upon a time I was allergic to poison ivy. Now I'm allergic to exercise.

21. What is one thing you have learned about life recently?
I really don't know very much. There's a WHOLE LOT to learn, and I'll never know it all, or even a fraction. So I need to listen more and speak less. Except here, of course. :)

22. What do you do at work?
I substitute teach occasionally, but for now I'm a mom and a student.

23. What is your mom's name?
Mary. Kathleen.

24. Ever cried for no reason?
When I cry, it's usually for no good reason. I don't like to cry.

.25. Can you do the Crank Dat dance?.
The what?

26. What is your favorite color to wear?
Earth tones. Mustard, rust, greens. All time favorite is probably butter yellow, though.

27. What is the longest plane ride you have ever been on?
Probably central Louisiana to Santa Fe, when I was a kid.

28. What is the longest road trip you have ever taken?
There have been three long ones: Driving from D.C. to Chicago to Tulsa then back the same way all in one weekend, for my brother's graduation (with sister); Virginia to Louisiana to Tulsa to Orlando to Virginia, with Hunny, two babies and our dog, in two weeks; Orlando to Louisiana to Tulsa to Tupelo to Atlanta to Orlando in two weeks - no Hunny this time, just me and three kids. I LOVE me a road trip! And good books on CD!

29. What are your turn-offs?
Eating noises. Seriously. Close your mouth when you eat.

30. What was your last alcoholic beverage?
A hard cider.

31. What are you craving right now?
Popcorn. Excuse me ...

I think I will steal this for sometime next week. And now I know a lot about someone I barely know. How strange is that. I like you though. But not in a wierd interent stalker kind of way - just in a ....... nosey, blog reading kind of way. :)

Marguerite said...

I remember that trip! It was fun, and cramped. I sat in the back most of the way and it was a small car. Still fun, though. Or is that the fog of time distorting my memory?

Flea said...

Oh, you sat in the front and drove part of the way. We'd both just gotten our licenses. You were in the back for the Tulsa to Chicago leg, when Deb was in the car. But it was fun!

And Dlyn, it IS fun getting to know people! I'm enjoying your blog, too. Have fun with the Q&A, and I look forward to knowing more about YOU. Maybe I'll be stalker-ish. :)

We need to get you out of the country!! A little vacation to someplace tropical and warm is in order!!

I'll come....just to keep you company! :-)


Flea said...

Hallie! I grew up south of New Orleans and spent the last eleven years in Orlando! NO WARM PLACES. But I could come to Maine. :) I'm guessing you don't want to vacation in the Swiss Alps with me, huh?

AutoSysGene said...

LOL! I love a few of these answers they made me crack up!!

Suburban Correspondent said...

No, no, Someone's socks are in the back seat of my car, not yours.

Thanks for dropping by! How did you find me?

Flea said...

Oh lordie. It could have been through anyone's blog. Hallie's?

OHmommy said...

Ohhhh... that's a good one. We have a lot in common.

I don't like massages either. Or eating sounds. Yuck!

Anonymous said...

Hey! I wear a size 11 shoe too!!! Rowentas AND big feet! Cool.

Flea said...

See how much wee all have in common? It's a small world. And we have big feet. :)

Ohmommy - thanks for popping in! I love your blog.

Kidzmama said...

Love it! I might just snag this one for myself. Oh, and give you some credit. It looks like fun.

I haven't gone on many trips, but it sounds like you've had some adventures. My family went "camping" when we were really young, in a motorhome!

Flea said...

See, as much fun as camping is, motor homes are the way to go. Outside of that, I prefer fall and spring.
