Monday Morning Meme

Tired of all of those surveys made up by high school kids?! "Have you ever kissed someone? Missed someone? Told someone you loved them? Drank alcohol?" 35 questions for the people who are a little older...Tag me when you finish.


1. What bill do you hate paying the most?
car repairs

2. Where was the last place you had a romantic dinner?
Bombay Restaurant in Einsiedlerhof. There's something very sensual about Indian food.

3. What do you really want to be doing right now?
sleeping! It's Monday morning--do you even need to ask?

4. How many colleges did you attend?
two: University of Michigan, and University of Maryland.

5. Why did you choose the shirt that you have on right now?
It was the only clean one in my pajama drawer that a) was warm enough (i.e. not a tank top) and b) I didn't need to wear a bra with.
If you're asking why it was in my drawer--it's an old comfy long-sleeved henley of Carl's.

6. What are your thoughts on gas prices?
I don't pay attention much. Over here, we just put $$ on our card and then fill up the tanks until we need to put more on.

7. First thought when the alarm went off this morning?
Since I was already awake (I've developed an annoying habit of waking up 10 minutes before the alarm goes off, but I stay in bed until it does, dammit!), I was most concerned about turning it off before it woke Carl up, because otherwise he'd dash into the bathroom ahead of me. (and then go back to sleep for another THREE FREAKING HOURS! No, I'm not bitter. Why do you ask?)

8. Last thought before going to sleep last night?
Well, since I fell asleep while reading, it was probably something about the current read: Mr. Murder by Dean Koontz.

9. Do you miss being a child?
Not really. I like my life now.

10. What errand/chore do you despise?
Scrubbing the tub, and dusting the rock collection. Neither of which gets done nearly as often as they probably should. Eh. Do it yourself if it bothers you.

11. Get up early or sleep in?
I'd love to sleep in, but these 5:15 mornings have killed my ability to do that, even on weekends.

12. Have you found real love yet?
Oh, yes.

13. Favorite lunch meat?
roast beef

14. What do you get every time you go into Wal-Mart?
I never go to Wal-Mart. They're not in Germany anymore because Germany requires companies to allow their employees to join unions. Hah. Even in the States, I don't go there. I loathe Wal-Mart.

15. Beach or lake?
Beach.

16. Do you think marriage is an outdated ritual?
The ceremony thing, or the practice? I see no point to the ritual, but think that the concept of making a commitment to someone you love is an important one. I find stories about people discovering they're "not really married" because the priest/minister/rabbi/judge/whatever was a fake to be ridiculous.

17. Sopranos or Desperate Housewives?
I've never watched either one, and don't really want to.

18. What famous person would you like to have dinner with?
Stephen Colbert.

19. Have you ever crashed your vehicle?
You mean, while I was driving, have I ever run into anything? No. But I've been in 3 accidents, one as a driver, two as a passenger.

20. Ever use a fire extinguisher for its intended purpose?
Nope. And never for an unintended purpose either.

21. Ring tone(s)?
Whatever came with the phone. Which I never use. I'm not even sure I know how to unlock it.

22. Strangest place you have ever brushed your teeth?
When I had braces as a teen, I was fanatic about brushing immediately after eating, and I always had a toothbrush in my purse, so probably the strangest would be restaurant bathrooms, or maybe by the water cooler on a picnic.

23. Somewhere in California that you'd like to go, but have never been?
I've never been to California. Someplace quirky and off the beaten path. I'm not so much into the usual touristy things.

24. Do you go to church?
No.

25. At this point in your life would you rather start a new career or a new relationship?
Career.

26. How old are you?
49

27. Do you have a go-to person?
Probably Carl.

28. Are you where you want to be in life?
In some aspects, yes. I'm a work in progress in others.

28. Growing up, what were your favorite cartoons?
Scooby Doo, Rocky & Bullwinkle

29. What about you do you think has changed the most?
Being more comfortable in my own skin. I know who I am and make no apologies for it. I don't bend to make myself fit to anyone's expectations or wishes like I did when I was young. (stealing Deb's answer because it's a good one!)

30. Looking back at high school were they the best years of your life?
God, no.

31. Are there times you still feel like a kid?
Occasionally, but less and less often.

32. Did you ever own troll dolls?
No.

33. Did you have a pager?
No.

34. Where was the hang-out spot when you were a teenager?
No clue. If there was one, I was unaware of it.

35. Were you the type of kid you would want your children to hang out with?
Oh, sure. They're less trouble-prone than I was, definitely, but I was never the instigator.
