alfred hand-on-face
Gacked from otherdeb . . . I haven't done a questionnaire in a really long time. (I actually wrote this very early Saturday morning and didn't get it posted until Sunday morning.)

1. What curse word do you use the most? Used to be the "F" word, but I've cut down on the cursing by about 80% at least . . . going on a year now.

2. Do you own an iPod? Three, one in the car, one in the iHome lamp, one an iTouch stuck in my bag (with the movie 3:10 to Yuma on it. The battery's probably dead.

3. What person on your flist do you talk to the most? Charlie, obviously.

4. What time is your alarm clock set to? Right now it's set on 6:55am and 7:15am, I think. It changes almost daily.

5. Do you still remember the first person you kissed? Sure. My former brother-in-law, the sick fuck. (There, I used that word again.)

6. Do you remember where you were on 9/11/01? In bed when the airplanes hit the twin towers. Sue called and woke me up. She said, "We're under attack." Then I turned on the TV and watched the towers collapse. Then I got dressed and drove to work, and as I saw the Portland skyline come into view on that sunny September morning, I kept expecting to see something crash or blow up.

7. Would you rather take the picture or be in the picture? Either one. I've gotten into taking pictures again, but I'm not camera shy.

8. What was the last movie you watched? Mr. Sardonicus, just about an hour ago. We watched 'Sherlock Holmes' again in the hotel room while we were at the beach.

9. Do any of your friends have children? Sure.

10. Has anyone ever called you lazy? Hahahahahahahaha.

11. Do you ever take medication to help you fall asleep? After my lasik surgery I took a sleeping pill. When I woke up, I could see!

12. What CD is currently in your CD player? I don't have a CD player. Right now 'Public Enemies' is in the DVD player.

13. Do you prefer regular or chocolate milk? I love "regular" milk. I usually drink 2% (or is it 1%?) every morning.

14. Has anyone told you a secret this week? ?? I don't think so. But I wouldn't tell if someone had.

15. When was the last time you had Starbucks? Saturday? Sunday? Maybe last Friday.

16. Can you whistle? Barely.

17. What is the first thing you notice about the opposite sex? Everything.

18. What are you looking forward to? Moving into our new building!!!!

19. Did you watch cartoons as a child? Constantly. I *loved* Jinx the Cat, Huckleberry Hound and the Flintstones. Now I'm Fred and Sue B. is Barney.

20. Do you own any band t-shirts? Many. Bands and pop artists.

21. What will you be doing in one hour? Sleeping. (ETA: Uh, no. Still working on this.)

22. Is anyone in love with you? I have a suspicion a couple people are.

23. What was the last song you heard? Frank Sinatra singing 'Fly Me to the Moon' is playing on TV right now. In the car I've been blaring Taylor Swift's 'You Belong With Me.'

24. Last time you cried? ?? Not sure. I don't cry much.

25. Are you on a desktop computer or a laptop? Laptop.

29. What were you doing before this? Surfed LJ, watched 'Medium.'

30. When was the last time you slept on the floor? ??? I haven't done that very often.

31. How many hours of sleep do you need to function? I can 'function' damn well on very little sleep, which means I never get enough. I'm sure someday I'll just collapse and hibernate for a few months like a big, fat bear.

33. Are your days fast-paced? Hahahahahahahahaha.

34. What did you do last night? Took a nap, then got the Clear modem working on my laptop for next week's board meeting. (Without internet access, it's pretty hard to do a session on Social Media!)

35. Do you use sarcasm? Hahahahahahahahahaha. (Actually I'm less sarcastic than just funny.)

36. How old will you be turning on your next birthday? Double nickels, baby! It's the new 35.

37. Are you picky about spelling and grammar? OMG, yes. Can'tcha tell?

38. Have you ever been to Six Flags? Nope.

39. Do you get along better with the same sex or the opposite sex? Maybe with guys (opposite sex, but sometimes it seems like the same, to me).

40. Do you like mustard? Sure, but I was always a ketchup girl. Charlie was more mustard.

41. Do you sleep on your side? My left side, mostly.

42. Do you watch the news? OMG, yes. I'm obsessed.

43. How did you get one of your scars? My first came as a baby, when they used radium to burn off a scary birthmark on my back. That was nice. Some 30 years later I had to have the resulting radioactive mark cut out, clear down to the facia. It left a nice scar in back.

51. Who would you want to be tied to for 24 hours? I can't even stand myself for that long.

52. What is a rumour someone has spread about you? OMG, I can only imagine. I'm having an affair with someone? I'm bisexual? I write porn in my spare time? I'm a bitch? They're only 'rumors' if they're not true, right? (And we spell that 'rumor' on this side of the pond.)

53. How do you feel about carrots? Love 'em. I'm a regular Bugs Bunny (another cartoon I loved as a kid). Those scalloped chips work great with dip, thank God.

54. How many chairs at the dining room table? You mean the place where we collect crap at the end of the living room?

61. Do you have a crush on anyone? Sure. Always.

62. Do you know how to use some words correctly, but not know the meaning? I know the meaning of words internally, although I sometimes can't explain them externally. I can identify their definitions and use them correctly (maybe from years of collecting pages of Increase Your Word Power from 'Reader's Digest').

63. Do you like to sleep? Love, love, love to sleep. It's one of my favorite things to do. I dreamed about being able to fly this week, one of the best possible dreams.

64. Do you know which US states don't use Daylight Savings Time? Arizona? Or they always use it there?

66. Do you want a bright yellow '06 mustang? Hmmm . . . maybe.

67. What's something you've always wanted? I get pretty much what I want. I don't want for things. I'm easily satisfied. If I win the Power Ball tomorrow, though, I'll go buy a Jag.

68. Do you have hairy LEGS? I have around three hairs on my right shin.

69. Would you rather swim in the ocean or a lake? Swim? Doesn't that involve going in the water?

70. Do you wear a lot of black? OMG, yes.

71. Describe your hair: Long, layered and blonde; I've had bangs for the last year or so.

72. Do you have Entomophobia? Huh? Bugs? I'm not Willie from 'Temple of Doom,' but I'm close.

73. Are you an adult? Not really, but I make a good pretense of it sometimes.

74. Where is/are your best friend(s)? She's right here in the room with me.

75. Do you have a tan? Mystic tan, one of man's great inventions. But it's worn off because I didn't go last week. (I call it that really sunny spot in Gresham where I stand for 60 seconds.)

76. Are you a television addict? OMG, yes. I don't believe in being far from one for very long. I have one in my bathroom. But I don't like the term 'addict,' because I don't consider it a bad habit I need to break.

77. Do you enjoy spending time with your mother? Mom's been gone since 2000. I was really a 'momma's baby' when I was a kid. I got over it later, but I was always pretty close to Mom. We loved playing marathon Kismet together.

78. Are you a sugar freak? No.

79. Do you like orange juice? Not much. Too acidic.

Nice to see I've had some evil influence here.

Seriously, nice to learn a bit more about you!

I enjoyed this Marilyn. You have a lovely sense of humor.

Wow this was so good, and I am glad you did it so I could read it all. You are very witty and clever how you put things.

My tournament went well, and I was bad in the morning, but very lucky in the afternoon. Took first place for the afternoon and got the last 24 hand, so made about three times my entry fee and got points. Very good for me.

Your move is very close now and I sure wish you didn't have a board meeting to deal with also. Oh well get it all over in one week. Take care. Sue
