I Luuuurve the Memes

Steph tagged me, for this, so here we go. Cause I know you want to know more about ME ME ME!!


1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
It was too ungodly early to think anything.

2. How much cash do you have on you?
About $25

3. What’s a word that rhymes with “DOOR?”
snore

4. Favorite planet?
Hee hee, Uranus

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
My cell phone is terribly unreliable about actually recording people that have called. I know this because there will be messages on voicemail from numbers that don't show up on the missed call list. So #4 is some unidentified number, but it's surely more than 4 calls ago.

6. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?
Meh

7. What shirt are you wearing?
A boring Land's End t-shirt and a huge flannel shirt I think I bought in high school. grunge was "in" then.

8. Do you “label” yourself?
I think progressive feminist eco-freak would be a fair assessment...don't you?

9. Name the brand of your shoes you’re currently wearing?
Not wearing shoes, but the ones I last had on were some trail shoes I bought at a hunting store a few years ago.

10. Bright or Dark Room?
Somewhere in between.

11. What do you think about the person who took this survey before you?
She rocks.

12. What does your watch look like?
Cheap-o digital thing with a velcro - yes, velcro! - band from ShopKo

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?
Sleeping. Baby boy didn't get me up until 2:30! (And then 3:30, then 4:30, then 4:45...)

14. What did your last text message you received on your cell say?
"Checked baggage is for chumps." From my brother, who just flew in to Madison today!

15. Where is your nearest 7-11?
Meh.

16. What’s a word that you say a lot?
Can we go with a phrase? How about: "No, Daniel. Don't put your fingers in the VCR/heating vent/Daddy's beer/poop bucket/trash can..."

17. Who told you he/she loved you last?
Hubbo, probably.

18. Last furry thing you touched?
The scarf I'm making that looks like cat barf, or shag carpet from the 70s, depending on the light.



19. How many drugs have you done in the last three days?
3-buck Chuck from Trader Joe's a couple nights ago, Pranqster beer to celebrate being done with phase 2 of prelims last night, and Essence of Life every morning (homemade latte...mmm...)

20. How many rolls of film do you need developed?
Hello? Stone age much? We're all digital, all the time.

21. Favorite age you have been so far?
Life is pretty good now, so I'll go with 27.

22. Your worst enemy?
I don't think I have enemies. Can't come up with anything clever here.

23. What is your current desktop picture?
Some random cute picture of my kid.

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?
“If you guys are going to watch football all afternoon, I'm going to go mess around on the computer."

25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly what would it be?
The money, fo sho. I'm afraid of heights, and then we wouldn't have to buy powerball tickets anymore.

26. Do you like someone?
I'm not harboring any secret crushes...oh, except for the latest Mr. Darcy. Yum.

27. The last song you listened to?
My little bro just barraged us with a bunch of 80s hits on his iPod...I think the last one was "Roam where you want to" by the B52s.

28. What time of day were you born?
mid-afternoon? Not sure. I was there, but my memory's a little fuzzy.

29. What’s your favorite number?
This is a really stupid question, so I'll pretend it asked for my favorite smell instead, which is currently lavender.

30. Where did you live in 1987?
small KY town.

31. Are you jealous of anyone?
I'm jealous of a lot of people for a lot of things, all of them petty: Musicians who are better than I am, musicians with decent jobs, people who are able to get out of the house without lugging a squirming child with them, people who get a full night's sleep on a regular basis, people who have dishwashers, people who can stay out after 7pm...ugh, this is depressing. Still, I don't harbor any resentment towards anyone. I just get wistful every once in a while.

32. Is anyone jealous of you?
Yeah, tons of people tell me how much they wish they could spend all day changing diapers and washing dishes.

33. Where were you when 9/11 happened?
At the UW School of Music. I was making copies for my piano class when the second tower fell.

34. What do you do when vending machines steal your money?
Curse.

35. Do you consider yourself kind?
I suppose.

36. If you had to get a tattoo, where would it be?
On my fleshy tuckus.

37. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?
Oh, I forgot to put this on my "jealous" list. I have always regretted that I never learned another language fluently, though I've dabbled in German, French and Italian, all of which I can read fairly decently. I really want to speak Spanish, though.

38. Would you move for the person you loved?
Yeah, I would.

39. Are you touchy feely?
Not particularly. I'm acquainted with a certain singer who tends to pet people and it's very annoying.

40. What’s your life motto?
I've never thought about it before. How about "Look out for #2"? With a 9mo, this comes in handy more than you'd think...

41. Name three things that you have on you at all times?
My wedding ring, my kid, and clothes that rarely match.

42. What’s your favorite town/city?
In the US: Portland, OR. In Europe: Salzburg, Austria.

43. What was the last thing you paid for with cash?
Brunch at Lazy Jane's Cafe on Madison's east side after we picked up my brother from the airport. I had an omelet with artichokes, asiago cheese and whole roasted garlic cloves (MMMMMM).

44. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it?
Not that long ago. I have a good friend in Minnesota with whom I like to correspond the old-fashioned way.

45. Can you change the oil on a car?
I could on a previous car, but they make 'em so compact now it's impossible to get to the filter without a professional car jack and special tools.

46. Your first love: what is the last thing you heard about him/her?
The first serious crush I had...last I heard he dropped out of college and couldn't even get promoted past busboy at TGI Friday's. Maybe he's doing better now, but I really don't care.

47. How far back do you know about your ancestry?
I think the earliest specific historical anecdote is that some ancestor of mine crossed a border into then-Prussia in the bottom of a hay wagon.

48. The last time you dressed fancy, what did you wear and why did you dress fancy?
My doctoral recital a couple weeks ago. I tried posting a picture, but Blogger - unsurprisingly - started spewing chunks when I hit the "upload" button. It was a simple, black two-piece dress with sheer sleeves and purty earrings. I also fixed my hair, a rarity.

49. Does anything hurt on your body right now?
My back's a little sore, probably from baby-holding and not doing enough stretching. It's not a big deal.

50. Have you been burned by love?
Yeah, but I'm over it.

I'm not going to tag people because I don't want to leave anyone out, so if you want to do this, leave a comment (me? begging for comments? Naaaaaw!) so I can go read it.

Okay Suze, I'll comment! Out of the many grins I got from your responses, I have to say that, sitting alone at my desk, I laughed out loud like a loon at your cat-barf scarf. Hey, maybe that's trademark-able: "Sbarf." You should look into that before Gene Simmons steals it out from under you.

I had to stop reading at #19 and exclaim: "You have a Tarader Joes in WI and two buck Chuck is now 3 buck Chuck!?!" California was the first place I experienced the greatness of Trader Joes, and now without access here in FL, I really miss it.
Jenn Hacker said…
Is number 46 someone we went to HS with whose initials are J.S.?

LOL
Jenn Hacker said…
Okay, I rose to the challenge. I answered your call for a meme.
Becca said…
I think I should know who #46 is, but it's not coming to me.

And I answered, too. I copied off of Jenn.
Anonymous said…
If #46 is J.S., I can remember you shedding tears over him.

Oma
Suze said…
See, this is the thing about people who knew me in high school reading my blog. You guys know J.S. and therefore how pathetic it is how much I liked him. ugh :) I got over it pretty much as soon as we started going out...
Becca said…
I don't know how pathetic is was. I don't know who J.S. is!
Jenn Hacker said…
Hey, Becca - who played "Riff" in West Side Story? Answer that question, and you know who J.S. is.

And Suze, don't feel bad. I had a crush on him for the longest time, which he made it a point to let me know was totally unreciprocated. Then I had to kiss him in a play. Talk about THAT messing with your head! So, it's not pathetic. Okay, well, yes it is, but I was right there with ya darlin'! And besides, the last thing you heard about him was the last thing I heard about him, so that makes me believe there is such a thing as karma, after all! LOL!

That was soooo bwitchy of me, wasn't it?!? LOL! I'm entitled to be once in a while. Wonder whatever happened to him? (but he still wasn't my first love. That story is even better!)
Becca said…
If J.S. is who I'm thinking of....wow. He turned out that well, huh?

Suze, I forgot to ask--why are you knitting a scarf that looks like cat barf? And what exactly is wrong with the cat that produces that kind of barf?
