I know - you were thinking the same thing, right? It's been far too long since I've
bored amused you all with a bunch of insignifcant trivia about myself. ;) But I saw this at Moomin Light and thought - Hey, I could use one of those today. So here it is, and help yourself to it if you too are in need of a fun, easy post. Let me know (in the comment box) if you do it!
WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Don't think so. But my dad really wanted Dawn while my mum really wanted Michelle. I ended up Dawn Michelle. Dawn is a fairly uncommon name, but there were three Dawns in my kindergarten class!
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Oh, I'm embarrassed to say it was at Pirates of the Caribbean III.
DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
Yes, I'm a bit obsessed with it actually.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
I like plain roast beef (not Italian) with Swiss cheese, on a baguette if possible.
DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Three awesome boys - 5, 7 and 11-about-to-turn-12 tomorrow.
IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Gosh, I hope so.
DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?
No, almost never. I just can't pull it off, plus, it tends to sail over my head.
DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
Nope! I had them removed when I was 4 or 5, I think? I still remember them putting the mask over my face and telling me to count backwards from 10. I remember them giving me a shot and telling me it would feel just like a mosquito bite (ha!). I remember waking up in the recovery room and screaming for my mother and a very mean nurse telling me - in so many words - to shut up.
WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
I hardly ever eat cereal, but I loved Honeycombs as a child. Actually, if I could choose any cereal it would be hot Irish oatmeal with cream and brown sugar. Yum!
DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG?
Physically? Somewhat, I mean for my size I guess (5'4"). My arms are surprisingly strong from years of picking up one if not two little boys at a time. Bill calls them "mama muscles." ;)
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
Breyer's Natural Vanilla (though I also like peach ice cream and blackberry sherbert).
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Their manner and way of speaking.
RED OR PINK?
I like both, but I think I prefer red.
WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
I fret too much.
WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
Olive colored shorts, brown sandals.
WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
The "crusts" of Crackerjack's waffles.
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
Birds singing and the breeze outside my window.
IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE?
Dandelion. (OK I now realize I've done this meme before but I'm forging on.)
Vanilla, gingerbread, balsam.
WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE?
FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH?
NFL Sunday football. LOVE it. Grew up on it. Go Pats! :)
DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?
Can I say coffee? Hmmm ... pretty cookies like these with a cup of coffee.
SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS?
Happy endings, most definitely.
LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED?
At the theater: Pirates of the Caribbean III. At home: The Land Before Time.
WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING?
Light blue with a splash of flowers across the front.
SUMMER OR WINTER?
Winter. I've been told I am a winter (as in fair skin, dark hair, light eyes) but I also prefer winter, as a season, over summer. I realize I am in the distinct minority with that choice, but I'm OK with that.
HUGS OR KISSES?
Depends on who's giving and receiving!
See Favorite Food, above, though a cup of coffee is really all I need, perhaps with a splash of something to make it interesting.
WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW?
To the boys: The Hardy Boys and the Tower Treasure. To myself: Plantation: A Lowcountry Tale. I plan to read this and this next. Love summer reading!
WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD?
A pretty blue bird on a branch.
WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON T.V. LAST NIGHT? Big Love on HBO.
I used to love the sound of my husband's car pulling in the driveway at the end of the day, but now he drives a Prius and that makes hardly any noise at all. So I'll say the wind in the trees, Canadian geese honking, my cats' purring ... and the coffee grinder whirring away in the morning. Fresh coffee is just moments away ...
ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
Beatles, I guess.
WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT?
WHERE WERE YOU BORN?
At the risk of sounding mysterious, at an army base somewhere in the deep south.
Have a great day, everyone! Happy Summer!!
