Cherise over at DSMA suggested the DOC get to know each other better by answering these 48 questions. I'm down with that. Get to know little ol' me, and consider answering them yourself!
1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
I was named after a character on a Soap Opera. Because anything other than that would have been normal.
2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
The day before yesterday, midnight, in bed, during a very one-sided conversation with Ryan.
3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
My handwriting is pretty freaking awesome...for the first three or four words, then it's all downhill from there.
4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
If I'm at the deli, I'll most always choose chicken breast. At home, I'd go with the honey ham.
5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
I have four boys around here somewhere...
6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Depends on who I was. If I was another mom at school, sure. I'm nice enough. If I was a D Mom, sure. I'd pick my brain. But if I was the woman that cut me off in front of drugstore today, then no...because I gave her the look of death, and if I was on the other side of that look, I'd be scared....and wouldn't like me at all.
7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
No, I'm perfect. Ok. Maybe yes.
8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
Yup. Though I wish I didn't . They have caused me all sorts of trouble.
9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Hell to the no. I love roller coasters, but that first giant drop...you know, the one where you climb for 20 minutes and then drop straight down at? That feeling in your stomach? THAT feeling is my worst nightmare, and I believe bungee jumping is all about that feeling. So again. No. Hell no.
10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
I'm a Crispix fan. I also will dabble in the occasional Fruit Loop a couple times a year. My favorite childhood cereal was Halfsies. Do you remember those? They were seriously the bomb.
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
I work really really hard NOT to buy shoes with laces. I don't have time for that. But my work out shoes do tie, and I do untie them, and retie them snuggly so my foot isn't rolling around them when I'm doing my thing.
12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
In some ways I'm Hercules. In others I'm Olive Oyl.
13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
I'm a Baskin Robbins fan: Mint Chip and Gold Medal Ribbon. Otherwise at home I'm a vanilla kinda girl.
14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Their eyes. People with kind eyes are my favorite.
15. RED OR PINK?
Hands down, red. I'm not a pink girl, though I am trying to embrace my inner girl these days, which means a little pink here and there.
16. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
My extra poundage.
17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
There is this guy. I miss him every minute of every day.
18. WHAT IS THE TECHNIQUE THAT YOU NEED TO WORK ON THE MOST?
Whatever technique it is that will get my boys to aim properly.
19. WHAT COLOR SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
I am not wearing shoes, or socks. And that is just how I like it. A big problem as of late has been having cold feet at night. Ryan used to warm them up for me, and now he can't. Wearing socks to sleep isn't ideal either. My uber sweet friend April gave me an electric blanket for my birthday last week to fix this very problem. She is currently on the top of my favorites list.
20. WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
Popcorn. I wish I could say chocolate chip cookies, but after taking out all the ingredients to make some, I realized we are out of milk. And cookies without milk is a big fail in my book.
21. WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
22. IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
Red, true Red. There just aren't enough true Red crayons in this world. There are a million of those purpley red ones though.
23. FAVORITE SMELLS?
The perfume Ryan gave me for Mothers Day last year, Eau Tendre made by Chanel. Also, the smell of onions sautéing...or just dinner cooking in general.
24. HOW IMPORTANT ARE YOUR POLITICAL VIEWS TO YOU?
I'm smart enough to have views, and smart enough to have them from either side of the aisle. Politics are the last thing I need to worry about right now. Besides, politicians are at the bottom of my list right now.
25. MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY OR BEACH HOUSE?
Both. If there is a view of a sunset, or a sunrise...I'm in.
26. FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
Back when I was a teenager I was a basketball fanatic. Jordan was the air that I breathed. Now, I don't watch basketball as I learned the entire game is determined in the last two minutes. San Francisco Giants baseball, however...I am a big fan of. I even know the players names.
27. HAIR COLOR?
Blond and light brown.
28. EYE COLOR?
Green. My mom says they are blue. My mom is wrong.
29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
No. My vision has always been pretty awesome.
30. FAVORITE FOOD?
Homemade chocolate chip cookies.
31. SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
Happy Endings. Always.
32. LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
Les Miserables. I didn't know anything of the story, and was enthralled with the entire thing. Once Russell Crow pinned that medal on that dead boy's jacket...I was a complete wreck.
33. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
A chocolate brown sweater.
34. SUMMER OR WINTER?
Summer. But Summer here in Northern California. Not Arizona summer. Not Florida summer. Only CALIFORNIA summer.
35. FAVORITE DESSERT?
I already answered this under favorite food. What kind of questions are these? Are chocolate chip cookies not considered a food? What the what?
36. STRENGTH TRAINING OR CARDIO?
Cardio. Just because I haven't been taught the proper way to strength train. I'm hoping to learn this year.
37. COMPUTER OR TELEVISION?
I've all but given up on TV. My computer on the other hand is my BFF.
38. WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
I have Think Like a Pancreas sitting right next to me, waiting.
39. WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?
I don't own a mouse, and if I did I wouldn't give it its own pad. I would kick it out on the street. Mice are not welcome here. (And I own a laptop. Not a desktop.)
40. FAVORITE SOUND?
The sound when you break open a fresh bottle of insulin. Ahhh...life. That's the stuff!
41. FAVORITE GENRE OF MUSIC?
I like all music. But right now I'm digging the Eagles Channel on Pandora radio.
42. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
43. DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
44. WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
I was born in the same town I live in today.
45. WHERE ARE YOU LIVING NOW?
In the same town I was born in.
46. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR HOUSE?
47. WHAT COLOR IS YOUR CAR?
48. DO YOU LIKE ANSWERING 48 QUESTIONS?
I like blogging. And since I am blogging this, I will say yes. But really, this question is all kinds of insecure. "Do you like me? Do you REALLY like me????" Now I'm ending this mean, and I hate that. New answer: Yes, 48 questions. I like you! You are ah-maz-ing! Call me!
(Man, I really do need to work on #7.)
