All About Me

I know this blog is meant to be a place to share pictures and stories about my kids. But today is my birthday, so it's going to be all about me today. A friend forwarded me this list of questions forever ago. I love to read other people's responses, but I hate to spend the time making up my own. Several people comment about enjoying the "Simple Woman's Daybook," so I thought it'd be fun to mix it up for a change. I'll give it a shot today and see how far I get. Any deleted numbers took me too long to think about!

65 Questions You've Probably Never Been Asked...

1. First thing you wash in the shower? My hair

2. What color is your favorite hoodie? I call it a sweatshirt, and it's red

3. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again? You bet!

4. Do you plan outfits? Yes, I tend to choose my clothes the night before so I don't have to deal
with it in the morning. I don't lay things out ahead of time though.

5. How are you feeling RIGHT now? on the verge of tired

6. What's the closest thing to you that's red? my toenails and a toy ride-on car

8. Did you meet anybody new today? the worker at Caribou--she just finished her first year at the college I graduated from

9. What are you craving right now? to read a book

10. Do you floss? yes, several times a week.

11. What comes to mind when I say cabbage? Borscht & childhood (German soup/ it!)

12. Are you emotional? not really, though my friend Brenda likely doesn't believe it--I've cried at every movie I've ever seen with her!

13. Have you ever counted to 1,000? I don't think so

14. Do you bite into your ice cream or just lick it? Both, when the need arises

15. Do you like your hair? yes, though I'm ready to dye it again...maybe later today

16. Do you like yourself? I do

17. Would you go out to eat with George W. Bush? Yeah! He probably knows where to get good ribs!

18. What are you listening to right now? the hum of the computer...I love (almost) silence.

19. Are your parents strict? They were to a certain point, though less so than some may expect from a pastor's family

20. Would you go sky diving? If someone else paid for it, I might give it a try.

21. Do you like cottage cheese? Yes, with strawberries cut up on it

22. Have you ever met a celebrity? Can't recall, but my family did own a former MacGyver film unit vehicle (mini-van). Does that count??

23. Do you rent movies often? No. After having kids, it takes Greg and I too long to finish one. Though we do get kid movies from the library every week.

24. Is there anything sparkly in the room you're in? A little dish on my desk.

25. How many countries have you visited? 5, although if layovers count you can add a few more

26. Have you made a prank phone call? maybe to a friend when I was in junior high

27. Ever been on a train? in a mass-transit sense, yes

28. Brown or white eggs? White, out of necessity, I guess. Where do you get brown?

29.Do you have a cell-phone? yes

30. Do you use chap stick? yes, constantly, the green minty kind (and only that kind)

31. Do you own a gun? Not personally, but we have some in the house. And I'm a decent shot, so I've been told.

32. Can you use chop sticks? Yes

33. Who are you going to be with tonight? My husband Greg and my kids Sophie & Owen

34. Are you too forgiving? No, I'm sure I can always get better at that

35. Ever been in love? I am right now!

37. Ever have cream puffs? Rarely

38. Last time you cried? At a church picnic when we prayed for dear friends who are moving away

47. Is your hair curly? No, but it does have parts that flair out now and then

51. Is your phone bill sky high? Not that I'm aware of. Greg and I share minutes on the lowest plan we can get, and we still never max them out!

52. Do you like your life right now? Yes

53. Do you sleep with the TV on? No

54. Can you handle the truth? Certainly--I'd rather handle the truth than deal with trying to figure out what someone means but won't say

This was awesome... thanks for posting. I love these things. I fill them out EVERY time I get one.

And FYI: white eggs come from white chickens, brown eggs come from brown chickens.

And if you need a good tattooist, I know of one. I'll be the little devil on your shoulder if you like. I've been jonesing for a new tat.

Fun to read.. I was surprised to see you were wearing a turquoise shirt today. The green one must be in the laundry?

Love you!
