1. You have $10 and need to buy snacks at a gas station; what do you buy? A Diet Coke and Reese’s Pieces or M&Ms. Maybe some nuts or Twizzlers. Can I get all that for $10? If I have enough left over, a bottle of water to flush all the junk food out of my system. 2. If you had to be reincarnated as some sort of sea dwelling creature, what would you be? I’d be a lobster, ’cause they are yummy, and I would be bringing joy to someone after I die a horrible boiling death. 3. Who’s your favorite redhead? Copper-Top! She’s adorable. I want to put her in my pocket and carry her around with me. In a non-creepy way, of course. 4. What do you order when you’re at a pancake house? Usually some sort of omelet. 5. Do you own any naughty toys? I don’t think anyone wants to know the answer to that. 6. Have you made out with anyone on your link list? (It originally said “Friends list” ’cause this came from LiveJournal, but I changed it to “link list” because I can) Uh. Yes. (I had to go see if Fred was on my list) 7. Describe your favorite pair of underwear: Seriously? People have favorite pairs of underwear? I love all my underwear equally. 8. Describe the last time you were injured: Yesterday morning; I was covering for someone at the pet store, and Sylvia got a little wild and scratched me. Brat. 9. Are there any odd things that make you feel comfortable? Numbers. Random numbers. I don’t know why. 11. Tell me a weird story from your high school years: I don’t think I have any weird stories, except for the night when I worked until closing at McDonald’s and two other closers and I were driving into Auburn to go to Denny’s, and as we drove across the bridge between Lewiston and Auburn, we saw a man climbing over the rail as if he was going to jump into the river. We turned around and drove back, and he wasn’t there any more. We called the police and made a report, and eventually another cop car came along with a transient in the back seat and the cops basically pushed us into saying that that was the guy we’d seen. Even though it really wasn’t, and we got an attack of conscience and went to the police station and told them that that wasn’t the guy we’d seen climbing over the railing, and they couldn’t have cared one single solitary iota less. 12. What is the wallpaper on your cell phone? A little baby pig. I tried out a couple of cat pictures, but they made the text hard to read. 13. Soda? Diet Coke. 14. Flavor of pudding? I like milk chocolate with a caramel swirl. Yum. I haven’t had pudding in ages; now I’m craving some. 15. What type of shirt are you wearing? A teal corduroy button-up shirt. It keeps me warm. 16. Prescription medication? Metoprolol (a generic of Toprol), Seasonale, Synthroid. 17. If you could use only one form of transportation for the rest of your life what would it be? I’d like a Segway, if I could get a little trailer for it. Otherwise, I think I’d need a car for hauling groceries and such. 18. How many people are on your links list? 130. 19. How many people on your links list do you know in real life? Not a one. 20. What are you listening to right now? Miz Poo snore. 21. Most recent movie you watched: Red Eye! 22.

Receive, as long as it’s not a perfunctory ::rub::rub::rub:: “Okay, done!” 24. Name a teacher you had the hots for: Are you kidding me? I had a crush on just about every male teacher I ever had. ::shudder:: 25. What is a saying that you use a lot? “What’d they say?” 26. What’s one piece of advice that you think should be passed on to every child? Wear sunscreen. (Ha!)

Meme #2 What were you doing 10 years ago? Uh… living in Rhode Island with the spud and my ex-husband. It was just about 10 years ago that I got my very first computer, a piece of crap that barely ran. I was only a few months away from meeting Fred. Man, ten years goes by fast. What were you doing 1 year ago? Same damn thing I’m doing right now. Sitting in front of the computer, chewing gum, drinking Diet Coke.

Five songs to which I know all the lyrics There’s only one song to which I know all the lyrics, and that is “Friends in Low Places”, by Garth Brooks.

Some people STARTED singing it, not knowing what it was, and now they’ll go on singing it forever just beCAUSE! It’s the song that never ends! Yes, it goes on and on my friends!, etc.) Five things I would do if I were a millionaire: 1. Buy a house on the ocean. No, strike that. I’d buy several houses on the ocean, all together, like a compound, and then I would name it “Horseshit Alley” and each of my siblings would have their own house. But I’d keep ’em all under my name so that if they ganged up on me, I could KICK ‘EM OUT! Ha! 2. Buy a Mazda Miata. In yellow. Do they come in yellow? Maybe I’d just get a yellow Mustang. 3. Hire someone to clean my house on a regular basis. 4. Hire someone to cook for me (god, I hate cooking. 5. Buy a Toshiba Libretto U100. Five bad habits: 1. Blowing my nose at the dinner table (yeah, I know. Shaddup.) 2. Getting too easily annoyed by people I don’t know. 3. Getting too easily upset by stupid little things. 4.
