Getting to Know Me… Getting to Know All About Me

  • Posted on August 19, 2005 at 12:27 pm

Isn’t that a song? Anyway, this one’s going around the blogs, so I figured I’d join in since I don’t have anything better to blog about at the moment.

(Edited to say: I first found this on Laura’s Blog, so I should give her props!)

  1. What time did you get up this morning?
  2. 10:00 AM. Yes, I do work full-time and no, this is not normal for me. It’s been a rough week…

  3. Diamonds or pearls?
  4. Well-cut, high quality diamonds. Though Terry did buy me the most beautiful strand of imported pearls last Christmas!

  5. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
  6. Star Wars I: Phantom Menace? Seriously, I’m too cheap to go to the movie theater. I’ll watch several movies at home on HBO or Starz for about the same price, thank you very much. 😉

  7. What is your favourite tv show at the moment?
  8. CSI, CSI Miami (I don’t care for CSI NY), any Law & Order, Cold Case, Amazing Race (when it’s on).

  9. What did you have for breakfast?
  10. A Cracker Jack butter toffee rice cake.

  11. What is your middle name?
  12. Lynn.

  13. What is your favourite cuisine?
  14. No one cuisine in particular. Chinese is always good, as is seafood.

  15. What food do you dislike?
  16. Anything too spicy. I have a sensitive digestive system. Besides, I prefer flavor, not heat.

  17. What is your favourite crisp flavour?
  18. Blackberry. With french vanilla ice cream.

  19. What is your favourite song?
  20. Anything by Coldplay.

  21. What kind of car do you drive?
  22. My car is a 95 Grand Am GT (which currently needs a new battery and an inspection). The truck we use most of the time is an 02 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer edition.

  23. Favourite sandwich?
  24. Fresh, sliced deli turkey with mayonnaise and some crisp, fresh lettuce on top. Sliced tomatoes are a bonus. 🙂

  25. What characteristic do you despise?
  26. Dishonesty and arrogance, particularly unfounded arrogance.

  27. Favourite item of clothing?
  28. My lime green cotton pique skort from Land’s End.

  29. If you could go any where in the world on vacation?
  30. Australia first, though I would need some serious pain mediication to keep me from hurting after that long of a flight!

  31. What colour is your bathroom?
  32. Powder and master bathrooms are still builder’s white, but the main bathroom is a ragged wine over a darker burgundy base.

  33. Favourite brand of clothing?
  34. Land’s End, when I can afford it and it fits. Otherwise, Chadwick’s.

  35. Where would you retire?
  36. Somewhere near a body of water, I think. I’m too young to plan that far out!

  37. Favourite time of day?
  38. 8:00 AM on a weekend when the sun is shining and I’m happily stitching away in silence.

  39. What was your most memorable birthday?
  40. My 16th was kinda nice. A small get-together at home with my closest friends.

  41. Where were you born?
  42. Pennsylvania, about 4 hours away from where I am now. I’m not going to answer exactly, since that’s a security question for some places when you forget your password! LOL

  43. Favourite sport to watch?
  44. Eh… whatever. I’m not big into sports.

  45. What fabric detergent do you use?
  46. Tide HE (we have a front loading washer).

  47. Coke or Pepsi?
  48. Neither. I’m not a big fan of carbonated drinks, for the most part. I prefer water.

  49. Are you a morning person or a night?
  50. Depends. I get a good second wind around 10:00 PM, but I’m also fairly energized in the morning after I get going.

  51. Do you have any pets?
  52. One 7-year old furbaby, an orange and cream colored Pomeranian named Phoebe.

  53. Any new and exciting news you’d like to share?
  54. Nope. With my current stress level, most news is not exciting right now, but mostly negative and I don’t want to focus on it.

  55. What did you want to be when you were little?
  56. A ballerina. That dream died when I quickly grew over the standard height. 🙂
