Meet the Blogger

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Y’all should know by now that I can’t resist these kinds of memes—and it’s been a long time since I’ve done one, so I thought it was time. I found this one on a couple of Tumblrs that I follow.

  • Do you usually sleep with your closet door open or closed? It must, must, must be closed. (More of an OCD thing than anything else.)
  • Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotels? Yep, especially back when I was traveling at least once a month.
  • Where is your next vacation? Hot Springs, Arkansas
  • Who do you think reads these? A few very loyal, very bored readers.
  • Do you have a calendar in your room? Not in the room I’m currently in, no. There is a hand-made year-at-a-glance calendar in my spare bedroom/office for 2012. I haven’t done one for 2013 and I don’t know if I will or not.
  • What’s your plan for the day? Go to work. Go to work Christmas party. Wear an ugly Christmas sweater as requested. Get some grading done. Catch up with Monday’s episode of Hawaii Five-0 which I missed on Monday. Write. Start packing.
  • Are you reading any books right now? Yes and yes.
  • Do you ever count your steps when you walk? I find myself randomly counting a lot of things. It’s not consistent, I lose count/start over/repeat numbers, and I’m not doing it for any reason. And I’ll stop as randomly as I start.
  • Do you ever dance even if there’s no music playing? No, there must be music—and I must be alone.
  • Do you chew your pens and pencils? I used to when I was young, but now I spend far too much money on my pens and mechanical pencils to damage them like that. (Plus it’s just gross to look at them after they’ve been chewed.
  • What is your “Song of the Week”?
  • Is it okay for guys to wear pink? I love it when men are confident enough to wear whatever color(s) they want to.
  • Do you still watch cartoons? Nope. Unless animated movies count—I saw Brave this year.
  • What do you drink with dinner? At home, flavored water or wine. Out, iced tea or water or soda, depending on my mood.
  • What do you dip chicken nuggets/tenders in? Mayonnaise, honey mustard, or ranch dressing
  • What is your favorite food/cuisine? New Mexico–style Mexican food with plenty of GREEN chile!
  • Name three movies you watch over and over and still love. A Christmas Story, Avengers, The Philadelphia Story
  • When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper? Does a note inside a greeting card count? Last month.
  • Can you change the oil on a car? I’ve done it once or twice, but I much prefer paying someone else to do it.
  • Favorite thing to eat for breakfast? Smokehouse (ham and bacon) omelet with hash browns and a cranberry muffin at Perkins
  • What is your usual bedtime? It used to be around 1 or 2 a.m. (when I could sleep until 10 or 11). But now that I have to be at work at 8 a.m., it’s usually between 10 and 11 p.m., or even earlier if I’m really tired.
  • Are you lazy? That is the core of my nature.
  • Afraid of heights? Only if there’s a possibility I could fall—I have a very definitive fear of falling.
  • Occupations you wanted to be when you were a kid? Veterinarian, artist, kept woman, race horse breeder/trainer, high school history teacher, writer.
  • Hot tea or iced tea? Either, depending on the situation and/or my mood.
  • Tea or coffee in the mornings? COFFEE
  • Favorite kind of cookie? White chocolate macadamia nut
  • Can you swim well? I love to swim—in fact, it’s the only kind of exercise I enjoy and find relaxing.
  • Can you hold your breath w/o manually holding your nose? Can’t everyone?
  • Who do you want to see right now?

    Hmmm….not sure if I’m loyal or bored, but I enjoyed this interview. 🙂 I always love seeing pictures of your adorable little doggie. 🙂

      I get to see her again on Friday, and will be there for more than a week this time, so I’m sure there will be lots more pix and videos to come over the next couple of weeks!

    So you really wanted to be a kept woman when you were young? Interesting. Should I ask what your childhood was like? 😀


    • Wednesday, December 19, 2012 10:23 am

      I considered high school to still be when I was a “kid.” And because my nature is to be lazy, the idea of being a kept woman (though married to the man doing the keeping, not a mistress) was appealing.

        I could go with that! I’m rather lazy myself. 🙂

    Love reading these memes. We share a similar core. Signed one of your ” very loyal, very bored readers.”

    I like the kept woman idea (in marriage) I always say I am going to marry a man who will keep me in the style I will grow accustomed to. the last question who do you want to see right now I could change to what and the same answer cricket but in my case the game. im one of the bored readers.

    It’s just plain scary how many of these answers could be my own. I always enjoy reading memes. They give a tiny bit more insight into a person. The kept woman had me wondering for a moment until you said in marriage. I just figured you’d read a few too many historic romance novels 🙂

    Enjoy your vacation and lovin’ on the doggie. She’s a cutie!

    Love reading these memes – and I’m so loyal and bored I’m catching up on what I’ve missed around here…
