Sunday Stealing: The Too Tired to Think Meme, Part 2
26. What type of errands do you like running? I love shopping at Costco. Once you have a routine, it’s fast and pleasant. It’s easy, too, to keep in our primary good eating items for much less than a regular grocery store: Frozen meats and fish, fresh and frozen veggies, and various fruits.
27. Have you ever eaten snow? Not that I remember, but most of my childhood was spent in places where it seldom snows enough to eat snow without also eating grass and dirt.
28. What color are your bedsheets? The current set is Ivory, but their is a pale blue set, too.
29. What’s your favorite flower? Lilacs or Queen Anne’s Lace. Both low maintenance and abundant blooms.
30. Do you do ballet? Like all little girls, I went through a period where I wanted to take ballet. I was around seven years old and in first grade. I would have been awful, but I am in favor of kids and grownups alike trying things at with they naturally stink for the many benefits struggling to learn a new skill brings. Plus, maybe I’d be slightly less awkward if I’d taken a dance or martial arts class.
31. Do you listen to classical music? Does the Animaniacs soundtrack count? Classical music was MADE for cartoons.
32. What is the first TV Theme song that pops in your head? Tossed salads and scrambled eggs:
34. What temperature is it outside right now? Hot, but not unbearable is my unscientific assessment. Weather.com says 85 degrees.
35. Do people consider you smart? Generally, yes. I am well spoken with a large vocabulary and a head for trivia. I’m not sure if that makes me smart, but it does make me seem smart.
36. How many piercing do you have? One in each earlobe, same as I’ve had since I was nine. I rarely wear earrings.
37. Are you signed on [to] AIM? Not since ’99.
38. Have you ever tried gluing your fingers together? Lucky for me, I learned how to separate my fingers for the Vulcan Live Long and Prosper greeting without resorting to adhesives.
39. How do you feel about your family? I love my family. I don’t know most of my relatives very well.
40. Do you have an iPod? Nope. I’ve never owned an Apple product. I started using iTunes a couple years ago to subscribe to podcasts which I sometimes transfer to my Android phone. Not impressed enough to join the Mac culture.
41. What time do you go to bed? These days, bedtime is 5 or 5:30 am.
42. What CD is currently in your CD player? I don’t use a CD player. We have an FM transmitter in the car and I have a few dozen tracks on my phone.
43. What movie do you know every line to? The Princess Bride.
44. What is your favorite salad dressing? French.
45. What do you want for Christmas this year? I never know what I want for Christmas.
46. What family member/friend lives the farthest from you? Where? Gloria lives in Australia. We met through blogging, but have spent enough time chatting and shared serious enough conversations to count as “real” friends.
47. Do you like hugs? When appropriate. I am not typically an “I just met you, let’s hug” person, but I love hugs from friends and family.
48. Last time you had butterflies in your stomach? At the dress rehearsal for our Klingon wedding.
49. What’s the way people most often mispronounce any part of your name? Not exactly a mispronouncing, but I find people often get my first name wrong or shorten it any which way without regard for what I actually am called. My full first name is Christina and my nickname Tina. Most people call me Tina and many are confused when they don’t see a Tina on the roster even though it’s a common shorting. I have even thought about legally changing to Tina to avoid having to explain I’m Christina to people who know me as Tina. Besides not being sure how my mother would feel about it, the fact I’d still have a paper trail of documents under Christina and would have to explain I changed it legally to avoid confusion would be trading one confusion for another. The other thing that happens I get called Chrisy, Cristy, Christine or, the worst, Chris. While those are perfectly fine names, none of them are mine.
50. Last person you hugged? Chris.
