48 Things

Swiped from Violet.

  1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
    Nope. I was named the way I was because none of my parents’ friends had a daughter named that. Of course, there were 5 girls with the same first name as mine once I went to school.
  2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
    I am crying right now. There damn better be a period in my immediate future, because this is pathetic.

    Yes. I think I have nice handwriting.
  4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
    Roast beef rules!
  5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
    Three boys. Because there is no parental fitness test you have to pass before procreating.
  6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
    Probably not. I can be fun to hang out with, but I am too fucked up, and that’s hard on friends.
  7. DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
    It’s my first language.
  8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
    Yup. They did not believe in tonsils removal in the Old Country.

    Somebody would have to push me off the platform the first time, but after that I’ll probably enjoy it.

    What I buy: Froot Loops. If money wasn’t an object: Muesli.
  11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
    Only the ones that absolutely won’t come off unless they are untied 🙂
  12. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
    No. I am too much of a coward.

  23. FAVOURITE SMELLS?
    Lily of the Valley. Strawberry. Green Apple. Raspberry.
  24. HOW IMPORTANT ARE YOUR POLITICAL VIEWS TO YOU?
    Important. I hate getting into political arguments, though, because they always leave me feeling drained and depressed and looking for a place to run away from everybody.
  25. MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY OR BEACH HOUSE?
    Mountain hideaway, with woods and meadows nearby. I won’t mind the beach being within driving distance 🙂

  1. Wheeeeee! FUN! I didn’t know you had LASIK done. And I may have laughed at the fact that you were crying while doing this. I am a bad person, but it made me giggle. 🙂

    1. Good catch, Rebekah! I forgot to edit that question – though I am sure Violet’s husband’s hiccups are indeed hilarious, I prefer the sound of silence 😛
