Bloggin' it Old School

Because I am so very lazy, and we have some new readers, I thought I'd go old school on y'all. I found this while being a creeper and loitering on other people's blogs. Shh. Don't tell the person I got it from.

Feel free to steal it and repost on your blog! I won't even say that you should say something nice about me (i.e. freakin' lazy sj finally posts, and she was totally lame about it).

1) What would you say your most fundamental flaw is?
i have so many flaws, but one particular flaw is my inability to walk away when i should. this applies to many things, and it's fairly universal. it's very hard for me to let go, even when something is hurting me.

2) What was your dream growing up?
i wanted to be a famous actress or singer. but i think it's safe to say I wanted to be famous (which i funny, because now i prefer to be anonymous). i also wanted to be an FBI agent. in fact, a combination of all three would have been ideal. so, an actress playing an FBI agent who had to go undercover as a lounge singer.

3) What talent do you wish you had?
i can sing a decent tune, but i wish i could play the piano.

4) If I bought you a drink what would it be?
i think it'd be really sweet of you to buy me a drink. you don't even know me! well, unless you're jal (gin and tonic) or srg (tequila sunrise) or KAT (anything goes, but likely, a chocolate martini).

5) Favourite vegetable?
asparagus. even though it makes your pee smell funny.

6) What was the last book you read?
snow angels by stewart o'nan.

7) What zodiac sign are you?
i'm a little crabby.

8) Any Tattoos and/or Piercings? Explain where.
don't you think that's too much information? but really, no. nothing interesting. my vices are more mental.

9) Worst Habit?
i'm a horrible procrastinator.

10) If you saw me walking down the street would you offer me a ride?
i'm not sure i know what you look like. so i likely wouldn't recognize you.

11) What is your favourite sport?
um. my what? well. i watch the red sox, and i throw around the pigskin in the yard with j and friends. but i'm the most clutzy person ever. as is evident by my previous travails.

12) Do you have a Negative or Optimistic attitude?
i'm generally optimistic. but even the most optimistic person has her bad days.

13) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator with me?
again, since i don't know you, per se, i'd have to go with a general response. i would likely smile politely and move to the back of the elevator and hope you don't talk to me.

15) Tell me one weird fact about you.
i love m&m's, but i feel compelled to sort them by color before eating them. and when i do eat them, i have to eat the largest population first, and work my way around the color groups until they're even. and ideally, i prefer them to have even numbers, but i can work through that.

16) Do you have any pets?
yes, one. Bailey, the english springer spaniel. i used to have a bunny too (Crispix), but my bunny sadly died in December 2007 and i cried for a week.

17) What if I showed up at your house unexpectedly?
i'd be so happy! we never get visitors! i hope you're not allergic to dogs. and please don't mind that my living room is a mess.

18) What was your first impression of me?
again, tricky. but let's go with - i think all of my blog readers are special and awesome. and i'm not just saying that so you'll come back.

19) Do you think clowns are cute or scary?
incredibly creepy. and never cute.

20) If you could change one thing about how you look, what would it be?
i would prefer to be better proportioned -- i have particular issues with my nose.

21) Would you be my crime partner or my conscience?
i'll bring the shovel.

22) What color eyes do you have?
brown. but someone once told me they looked yellow, which is a little scary and freaky. i'm not usually so feline.

23) Ever been arrested?
no. i killed all of the witnesses.

24) Bottle or can soda?
i don't usually drink soda. so. a bottle of water?

25) If you won $10,000 today, what would you do with it?
pay off whatever remaining debt we have, redo the bathroom and carpet the stairs. omg. when did i grow up??

27) What's your favourite place to hang at?
my living room. else? with kat and the ph.

28) Do you believe in ghosts?
i'm not sure. when i'm home alone, i definitely don't.

29) Favourite thing to do in your spare time?
i love to read. i also am addicted to online scrabble. i am aware of what a nerd i am, thank you.

30) Do you swear a lot?
i try not to. but unfortunately, i do when i'm upset over something.

31) Biggest pet peeve?
i get really bothered by people when they take advantage of others, or abuse others. i don't like bullyish or manipulative people.

32) In one word, how would you describe yourself?

33) Do you believe/appreciate romance?
i have a great appreciation for it, but i believe that it fades, which is unfortunate. i believe (too much) in the grand gesture and love letters.

35) Do you believe in God?
i believe in a higher power. i'm generally a spiritual person, though not a religious person.

36) What happened to question 14?
it got into a knife fight with question 26. neither was triumphant.

I have to tell you that when I eat Skittles, I have to eat them in color order: green, yellow, purple, orange, then red. This is from least favorite to most favorite flavor, so I end on my favorite.

Husband once told me that he ate Skittles in order too but his was more like the order you describe with your M&Ms - he would eat whichever there was most of first, working his way down to the one there was least of. I love that man.

Are you telling me that one can, at any time of the day or night, play SCRABBLE on the INTERNET? That is AWESOME. I've found my new passion.

Muffy Willowbrook said...

This had me giggling the whole time. And honestly - how could you NOT recognize me?!? Sheesh!

sj said...

steph: so. fantastic. you can also play on facebook, but i'm an instant gratification kind of girl.

dr. zibbs: i like your picture. is that a bison?

muffy: okay. if i saw a sexy caricature walking down the street with a flashdance thing going on - i'd totally stop to give you a lift.

Srg said...
