Marchness Memeness a la l’Empress

March Memeness, lifted from l’Empress herself. My Overtime is OVAH and I’m in a tired but celebratory mood.  Here’s hoping some of my friends pick this one up.

  1. What is in the back seat of your car right now?
    A box of kitchen stuff my oldest son was supposed to pick up a month ago and never did.
  2. When was the last time you threw up?
    About 3 years ago – some kind of extremely nasty stomach bug was going around and my whole family was violently ill with it.
  3. What’s your favorite word or phrase?
  4. Name 3 people who made you smile today.
    Lori, Laura and Reno (oh hush – Reno’s just a four-legged person).
  5. What were you doing at 8 am this morning?
  6. What were you doing 30 minutes ago?
    Picking up a pizza at Little Caesars’.  It’s stale as heck and still beats cooking.
  7. Have you ever been to a strip club?
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!  HAHAHAHAHA!!!  No.  Not even maybe a little bit.  Just no.
  8. What is the last thing you said aloud?
    “His ankle is killing him,” said to my daughter with reference to G, whose ankle was turned to oatmeal a few years back and periodically leaves him pretty much incapacitated.
  9. What is the best ice cream flavor?
    Wait… you mean there is another flavor besides chocolate???  EWWWWW!!!
  10. What was the last thing you had to drink?
    Iced tea
  11. What are you wearing right now?
    A turquoise pullover blouse and black-and-gray striped slacks
  12. What was the last thing you ate?
    Aforementioned stale pizza.
  13. Have you bought any new clothing items this week?
    No, but the week isn’t over yet!
  14. When was the last time you ran?
    Probably around Christmas time when the grandchildren were here.
  15. What’s the last sporting event you watched?
    A few kids’ games and an impromptu volleyball game at the office picnic Sunday.
  16. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
    I’d love to visit any number of my friends!  I would dearly love another meeting to include Poolie, Brain Gerbil, Zen and Chocolate, Terri, l’Empress, Yankee Chick, LA, Joanie (Hairdresser Extraordinaire) and a few dozen friends I have yet to meet via my other friends.  Can you imagine ALL of us in one place at the same time?
  17. Ever go camping?
    I used to and wouldn’t object again, so long as it involved SOME means of sleeping elevated from the ground.  I’m good with a cot, if push comes to shove, but would much prefer a nice cushy camper trailer, hehe.
  18. Have you ever lost anything down a toilet?
    Probably, just can’t think of anything off the top of my head
  19. What is your guilty pleasure?
    I started to say trashy romances but to be honest they’re pretty boring.  A romance is fine as long as it’s got an actual plot associated with it.  Maybe my addiction to the hokiest SciFi stuff around?  It’s hard for me to pinpoint because I refuse to feel guilty about what I enjoy.
  20. Do you use smiley faces on the computer a lot?
    Guilty as charged.  Maybe that’s my guilty pleasure.
  21. Do you drink your soda from a straw?
    Absolutely.  Soda doesn’t taste the same without the straw.
  22. What did your last text message say?
    I don’t remember what it said but I know it was to my daughter.  Probably something like “can it wait ’til I get off work?”
  23. Are you someone’s best friend?
    Not really.
  24. What are you doing tomorrow?
  25. Where is your mom right now?
    My mother passed away in 2002.  I wonder if she ever found peace, or if she’s finding fault with St. Peter?
  26. Look to your left, what do you see?
    A notebook, a pole lamp, a paperback book, a paper towel, lots and lots and LOTS of videotapes, and an Ionizer.
  27. What color is your watch?
    Silver with gold trim and a white mother-of-pearl face..
  28. What do you think of when you think of Australia?
    That is quite possibly the easiest question ever.  Miss Hiss!!!
  29. Ever ridden on a roller coaster?
    Yes, and loved it back then.
  30. Birthstone?
    Depending on who you ask – Citrine, Imperial Topaz, or Turquoise.
  31. Do you go in at a fast food place or just hit the drive through?
    Drive through, whenever possible.
  32. Do you have any friends on facebook that you actually hate?
    No, not at all.  My FB page is this weird amalgam of real-life family, friends, and colleagues, and online friends.  Not even a mild dislike in sight!
  33. Who is the last person you wrote a snail mail letter to?
  34. Last person you talked to on the phone?
    My youngest daughter.  I talk to her nearly every day.  Considering how close I came to kidtracide when she was a teenager, that’s nothing short of a miracle.
  35. Have you met anyone famous?
    Define famous.  I’ve met God only knows how many political names, ranging from municipal council members to a couple of governors to Pat Robertson on one of his bids for the Presidency.  I’ve met Bozo the Clown (or at least one version thereof;) singer Dan Seals, Danica Patrick and a couple of other race car drivers, a few actors and so on and so on.
  36. Any plans today?
    As soon as I finish this, I am going to watch TV in bed.
  37. From whom did you get this?
    From l’Empress, per the title of the entry and the first paragraph.
  38. Are you happy?
    Not ecstatic, but it will do for now.  (Me, too, l’Empress!)
  39. Where are you right now?
    In our office, plunked down in front of the ‘puter.
  40. Biggest annoyance in your life right now?
    Le car.
  41. Last song listened to?
    Something New Agey on my iPod wannabe.  I just have it saved as “Part 1” and “Part 2”.
  42. Last movie you saw?
    Ummm… something animated…  But for the life of me I can’t remember it.  It wasn’t that long ago, either!
  43. Are you allergic to anything?
    You want the whole list or just the highlights?
  44. Favorite pair of shoes you wear all the time?
    Easy Spirit sneakers I wish I could return to some semblance of their original white color.
  45. Are you jealous of anyone?
    Not really.  Nobody is problem free; mine are at least familiar.
  46. Are you married?
    Yep, and didn’t make myself a widow yet, either
  47. Is anyone jealous of you?
    I can’t imagine why anyone would be jealous of me other than the fact that I’m gainfully employed
  48. What time is it?
    7:47 pm.
  49. Do any of your friends have children?
    Most all of them do.
  50. Do you eat healthy?
    Errr… I plead the fifth.  Preferably vodka or maybe a nice bottle of white.
  51. What do you usually do during the day?
    Work, drive, work, play on the computer, work.
  52. Do you hate anyone right now?
    No, but I hate what some people do to other people.
  53. Do you use the word “hello” daily?
    Ironically, no, despite my spending most of my day on the phone.  I tend to be more specific (“Good morning” or “Good afternoon”)
  54. How many kids do you want when you’re older?
    Is this a trick question considering I’ve got four kids not counting in-laws and outlaws, four grandchildren, two due any day, and three more step-grands in the wings?
  55. How old will you be turning on your next birthday?
  56. Have you ever been to Six Flags?
  57. How did you get one of your scars?
    I lost a BIG mole on the inside of my arm – well worth the trade-off!
  58. Did/do you ever bite your nails?
    Yes, unfortunately.  I started again after the artificial ones bit the dust – so to speak.
  59. If you had a million dollars tax-free but had to spend it all on yourself and/or your family in thirty days, what’s the most expensive thing you’d buy?
    I’d probably buy a nice big piece of property and pay to have several homes built on it – one for each family member.
  60. What is the single thing you can do to make the world a better place?
    Make it a point to be kind to everyone around me.

There – with a couple of extras tacked on we’re up to sixty.  Do I get a prize?
