Not quite 48 questions

My friend MandoMama tagged me with the meme on Facebook, but I haven't really jumped into Facebook with both feet yet, so I'm putting it here. I'm not going to tag anyone (and left the ones blank that have to do with tagging), so if you want to play - tag yourself and let me know in the comments.

48 Questions, minus the four I left blank, so that's 44 - in honor of President #44.

1. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Named after 2 ants... no, wait... Aunts.

2. WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
when my kitties died in 2007. I hardly ever cry even if I feel like it. Some movies make me cry. Songs too.

3. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
I’ve used my own handwriting twice as part of the graphic design of CD sleeve art, which is neither here nor there. Since I type more than I write by hand, it's getting difficult to maintain good penmanship so because I am a perfectionist Virgo, I have a lot of cross-outs and start-overs. I'd really rather type it than make such a mess.

4. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT?
How about none? I haven't eaten meat for years. Ick.

5. DO YOU HAVE KIDS?
Nope, kidfree by choice, no offspring or adoptions except for the cats.

6. IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
Heck no. Two shy moody introverted loners? Who would start the conversation? The people I make friends with in face-to-face world are extraverts: honest, frank and sometimes brash.

7. DO YOU USE SARCASM?
Sarcasm has no place in a humorless society. Seriously, this blog has been sarcasm-free for one zero days.

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?
No. had them out as an adult simultaneously with sinus surgery. I don't recommend that – I mean the sinus surgery and having the two things done together although I don’t miss my tonsils. If you are young – have them gone!

9. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
No way.

10. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
The ones I like don’t like me.

11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
No.

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM?
See question 10. All I ever have these days are nonfat no-sugar-added low-calorie fudge bars. {yawn}

14. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Accessories, and smiles, especially the eye-smiles.

15. RED OR PINK?
Pink

16. WHAT IS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
So many to choose from, I just can’t decide. Maybe my lack of self-esteem?

17. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
I guess it would be my dad, because I never got to be around him as an adult.

18. DO YOU WANT EVERYONE TO COMPLETE THIS LIST?
-------

19. WHAT COLOR PANTS AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING?
black flipflops, blue jeans

28. EYE COLOR?
Dark blue.

29. DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS?

43. ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES?
I refuse to choose!!!

44. WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
“Home” needs defining when you are a military kid. I lived in Greece and Hawaii, but they were home to me at the time. That unlimited bus ticket I bought back in ’76 took me into some places that are far from where I’d want to be in many ways.

If you are on Facebook and feel so inclined, feel free to add me. My name is on my blog somewhere way down there on the sidebar.

I loved it at first, then despised it and have come to love it again. I consider it an extension of my blogging for when I don't really have time to blog... which probably means I should just ditch the blog but can't do that yet.

Mine is up and I am cursing you.. sorta.

I always enjoy reading other people's responses and am glad you put up with this one! Honeysuckle and jasmine are hitting most of the lists. I miss those smells, and the warm weather that goes with them. Olives!! Never met an olive I didn't love. And amen to #31.

What is Color Me Kubrick? The older kid and I are curious. Is it co-watchable with a teenager?

MM: about the movie, it's hard for me to judge. There's cussin', a con artist, and plenty of gay flirtation. John Malkovich stars, and it's based on a "true...ish" story about a man who goes around telling people that he's Stanley Kubrick so that he can have a more interesting life.
