Nope... No "Some Things Friday" Today...

I just can't do it. I'm not feelin' it today. So I am going to take the low road, cheat and use a meme I found. Pathetic, I know, but it did ask some pretty unusual questions.

92 Things

1. What color are your kitchen plates? Which ones? The red square plates; the white square plates; the multi-colored Italian design red, white and blue plates; the round tan plates with painted grapes, fruits and vines plates; the vintage Fiestaware plates; the white with gold border designs plates? As I’ve said before, I have a little obsession.

2. What book are you reading now? A cookbook, actually. “Hallelujah! The Welcome Table” by Maya Angelou

3. What’s on your mouse pad? I don’t use a mouse pad. I have a Logitech TrackMan Wheel. The ball is on top

4. What’s your favorite board game? Scrabble, and I kick butt!

5. Favorite magazine? Cottage Living

6. Favorite smell? Tom… second choice, lavender

7. Least favorite smell? Ammonia

8. What is the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning? What time is it?

10. Least favorite color? Probably brown. I don’t look good in brown.

11. How many rings before you answer the phone? I don’t carry the phone around with me from room to room, so it takes me a couple of rings to get to it…at least 2, maybe 3

12. Future child’s name? I won’t be having any other children. I will leave that to my children, but I don't think they are going there again either.

13. What is most important in life, after God and family? Friends, service to your community or country.

14. Favorite sound? Silence. There is so little of it.

15. Chocolate or vanilla? Vanilla, but my absolute favorite is vanilla malt. Mmmmm.

16. Do you like to drive fast? Yes, I admit it. But I've noticed that I've slowed down some the last few years. I guess I am just not in that much of a hurry anymore. That feels good.

17. Do you sleep with a stuffed animal? No, I sleep with my husband, Tom.

18. Storms: Cool or scary? When the lightening and thunder wake me up in the middle of the night – scary. When I am already awak – cool.

19. What type was your first car? I didn’t have my own car until I married Tom

20. If you could meet one person, dead or alive? Wow, only one? Bill Clinton, hands down.

21. What is your sign and your birthday? Gemini, June 14th

22. Do you eat the stems of broccoli? Yes, why not?

23. If you could have any job, what would it be? Travel writer

24. If you could have any color hair, what would it be? I bleached my hair blonde on my 18th birthday and dyed it just about every color imaginable since then... blonde, strawberry, auburn, red, brown, frosted...but I kind of like my gray hair now. Or maybe I'm just sick of messing with it all the time because I have better things to do. Or maybe a combination of the two. I'll keep you posted.

25. Have you ever been in love? Very… still am.

26. Is the glass half full or half empty? Depends on the glass and what’s in it.

28. Do you type with your fingers on the right keys? You mean as opposed to hunt and peck? Yes. I took my first typing class when I was a sophomore in high school.

29. What's under your bed? Probably some dust bunnies.

30. What is your favorite number? 19, the date of our anniversary this month.

31. Favorite sport to watch? I’m not really that into sports, but I will watch ice skating and gymnastics occasionally on television. In person, I like football and women's basketball.

41. Ever been so drunk you blacked out? No, but sadly I admit that I've been pretty darn drunk.

42. Missed school or work because it was raining? Yes. When we lived in the country, our gravel road would flood when it rained really, really hard all night long. I think I couldn’t get down our street twice in 15 years.

44. Kept a secret from everyone? Yes, ever since I was a child, but I finally told Tom about 3 years ago.
