Saw this on Fiona’s blog and decided to steal it – thanks, Fiona!!
The phone rings. Who do you want it to be?
Um, a wrong number. Unless it’s Sir or my sister or daughter. I don’t really like talking on the phone and they all text rather than calling usually, so i can’t say i want it to be anybody.
When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart?
In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener?
Usually a listener unless i’m in some kind of role that makes it particularly necessary to talk.
Do you take compliments well?
Not too badly. I’ve had years of practice at “just say thank you.”
Are you an active person?
Well, I have a sedentary job and spend hours blogging and reading other people’s blogs on the computer and playing on Facebook and doing paperwork, but you know, aside from that I’m active. Sure. I walk to the basement and back at least once a day. And my office is on the third floor – no elevator.
If abandoned alone in the wilderness, do you survive?
Hell, no. Only if someone shows up to rescue me.
Did you ever go to camp as a kid?
Yes. I went to a horse-riding camp once, and really loved that, and went to a regular camp two or three years and liked it.
What was your favorite game as a kid?
Army. We used to play army all the time. Outside, running and playing all day. Don’t know why we played army but we did.
A sexy person is pursuing you, but you know that he/she is married, would you?
Nope. Don’t think so. Never have – not saying I never would, anything can happen, but I think not.
Are you judgmental?
I try not to be.
Do you like to pursue or be pursued?
Use three words to describe yourself.
Compassionate, empathetic, and eccentric
If you had to choose, would you rather be deaf or blind?
Blind, no doubt. Helen Keller said that blindness separates you from things, but deafness separates you from people.
Are you continuing your education?
Of course. Try to learn something every day.
Do you know how to shoot a gun?
How often do you read books?
Do you think more about the past, present or future?
I try to focus on the present, but don’t mind thinking about the past or looking to the future.
What is your favorite children’s book?
Oh, there are so many it’s hard to choose. Any of Madeleine Engel’s books, but particularly A Ring of Endless Light. I think. But could be the Prydain chronicles. Or Anne of Green Gables.
Where is your ideal house located?
By the ocean.
Boxers, briefs, thongs, panties or grannies?
Panties…an occasional thong.
Last person you talked to?
Have you ever taken pictures in a photo booth?
Yes…years ago when I was much younger.
What are your keys on your keychain for?
To open and close stuff? Oh, House, Car, Work. File Cabinet.
Where was the furthest place you traveled today?
Where is your current pain?
Nowhere. Well, lower back a little bit.
Do you like mustard?
Do you prefer to sleep or eat?
O, man, both – do I have to pick? Really? Um, o, i don’t know, um, eat. No, no, no sleep. Eat and then sleep. I like them both a lot.
Do you look like your mom or dad?
I look like both really. There’s a strong family resemblance – my grandmother, mother, my sister, my daughter – you can tell we’re related. But I have my Dad’s coloring and his eye color and maybe his mouth.
How long does it take you in the shower?
Ten – twenty minutes.
What movie do you want to see right now?
None. I don’t really like movies.
What did you do for New Year’s?
Stayed home with Sir.
What was the cause of your last accident?
My last accident? A hole in the pavement – stumbled on it, or in it.
