THE "LALOLKFATYK" MEME (Learn A Lot Of Little Known Facts About Those You Know)
When you get done reading about my quirks, answer the questions yourself and either post them on your blog or in the comments below. If you answer the meme on your blog let me know so I can sneak a peek.Here goes more useless fluff...
WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
First name - no. Middle name - the same as The Mothership's first.
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
All out cried - can't remember. Tearing up crying - last week at work when I had a serious conversation with a girl who had come back from being on the run.
DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
Sometimes. It's an odd mix of cursive & printing, and although it's started to look more like Mom's, it's also getting sloppier as I scribble milieus at work.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
Honey or mesquite turkey.
DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Do the cat & dog count? Other than that, I'm just an old-maid Auntie.
IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Yeah, I like odd people.
DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
Sarcasm!?! Me?!? Never! Umm... I mean, yes.
DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
They're done gone - had them out when I was 12-ish. It was the only time I've stayed in a hospital as a patient.
WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
Oh, yes please. I'd be scared to death, but I'd still love to try it.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
Honey Bunches of Oats (like Leslie), Cinnamon Toast Crunch & Cap'n Crunch - I refuse to grow up!
DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
If they're tie-able, yes. I usually don't bother tie-able shoes, though. Give me high heels that'll slip off easily.
DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
Only compared to some. (Thank you, Princess Buttercup)
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
Some Dark Chocolate Mousse-y-ish stuff at Baskin Robbins. Rummy likes it too - he cleaned up the rest last time I had some.
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Sense of humor & attitude.
RED OR PINK?
Gimme red, baby.
WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
My fat - I'm well-insulated - and my health problems - they've completely changed the direction of my life, although I suppose it's been for the best. I wouldn't have the friends I have now & probably wouldn't even know what blogging was. :)
WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
My grandparents & (not to take the g'parents lightly, but) my horses.
WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
Dark denim jeans & low black slip-on heels that I got on sale.
WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
A biscuit & gravy with nice thick bacon at Charlie's with Nic while we salivated over jewelry.
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
The faint A/C here in the church worship center, at the tech booth. I don't have the know-how to run the sound system for music. :(
IF YOU WHERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
Could I be one that changes colors with my mood? I'm fickle.
Coffee. Chocolate. Fresh cut grass. Rain. Babies - clean, unstinkified babies. Alfalfa. Leather, horses & sawdust. Givenchy Organza Indecence. Cherries & strawberries.
WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
The Mothership. And wonderful daughter that I am, I can't remember a thing we talked about! (Hey! I'm tired!)
FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
Drag-racing & any horse sports, preferably in person. I am going to Nascar at Kansas Speedway sometime in September - my uncle bought season tickets for the family to share.
Brown, with blonde-ish streaks & some reddish highlights, au naturale. I used to color it red, but got tired of the fried look.
Indecisive. All the paperwork says blue, but they can't decide if they're that or grey or green-ish.
DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
Nope, but I need to get glasses again.
Olives. Chocolate. Creme Brulee.
SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
Happy endings - me no likey scary stuff.

HUGS OR KISSES?
From the hobbits - bring it on. From other people - I'm just not used to being touched that much.
