From Miss A . . . if you are moved to respond with your answers please copy me! It’s my blog and I can do what I wanna, so I left out a few questions . . .
1. What time is it
3. What are you most afraid of
Being irrelevant . . . not being important to the people who are important to me.
4. What is the most recent movie that you have seen in a Theater
The Simpsons Movie. I haven’t had too many good theater experiences recently, but this one was great . . . this kid in the back row kept yelling out “Oh, SNAP!” after every single joke and by the end he made me laugh as much as the movie did.
6. Favorite food
Ice cream, sushi (when I am eating fish!), pasta, a nice glass of ice water with really crunchy ice in it . . .
7. What’s your natural hair color
8. Ever been to Alaska
9. Ever been toilet papering
10. Love someone so much it made you cry
Now come on. Who has made it through adolescence and not had this experience?
11. Been in a car accident
Hmm . . . yes. Once when I was a teenager and our car got hit from behind (I was a passenger) by a scary driver who jumped out of his truck and ran off into the bushes. Then of course there are the usual LA fender-benders . . . but nothing serious.
12. Croutons or bacon bits
Well . . . croutons I guess, since I don’t eat meat (yeah, yeah, except for fish sometimes). I do like the Morningstar Farms Veggie Bacon though I’ve never tried it on salad. I really like candied walnuts, goat cheese and cranberries in a salad . . .
13. Favorite day of the week
Saturday — no contest. You get to wake up and go to sleep not stressing.
14. Favorite restaurant
Right now it’s the grill at home. Recently we’ve been into Mr. Cecil’s (I get the catfish and hush puppies, The Baron gets ribs) and of course there’s Katsuya and Hamasaku . . .
15. Favorite Flower
Roses? I guess? I like anything really colorful. We have some great Birds-of-Paradise in the garden just about to bloom . . . maybe when they do they’ll become my new fave.
16. Favorite sport to watch
Umm . . .
17. Favorite drink
Water. Eight glasses a day people!
18. Favorite ice cream
Pretty much anything with ice cream in the name works for me. Faves include coffee, chocolate-chocolate chip, pistachio, strawberry, mint-chip as part of B&R ice cream cake, vanilla as part of a root beer float or as a topping.
19. Disney or Warner Brothers
This is a hard one. I guess Warner Brothers . . . but what are we really talking about? Corporate parents? Feature studios? TV networks?
20. Ever been on a ship
I used to take the ferry to work every day, does that count?
21. What color is your bedroom carpet
Dark blue. So are the walls, ceiling and bedclothes. The Baron likes his sleep-cave . . .
22. How many times did you fail your driver’s test
Zero. But I think I passed with the lowest possible passing score.
24. What do you do when you are bored
Knit. What else is there?
Depends on the day. Weekdays it’s between 10 (if I’m lucky) and midnight (if I’m not).
29. Favorite TV shows
This is a hard one . . . West Wing, The Wire and Six Feet Under are on the all-time faves list. Right now I am Tivo’ing Friday Night Lights, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother (I *heart* NPH!) and Grey’s Anatomy, and I love love love the new show Life on NBC — the writers are amazing and I love Damian Lewis — check him out in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers and the PBS miniseries The Forsythe Saga.
30. Last person you went to dinner with
Like in a restaurant? Mr. Cecil’s with The Baron and another couple.
31. Who is your greatest love
The Baron, of course 🙂
32. What are your favorite colors
Blue hues, like indigo or a rich red. Also digging green yarn at the moment, as well as white.
33. How many tattoos do you have
34. How many pets do you have
A school. But all the fish really belong to The Baron . . . so none, I guess?
35. Which came first, the chicken or the egg
I say fish . . . because didn’t we all come from the sea? And fish lay eggs . . .
37. Have you ever been to Hawaii
Only once . . . I was six months old when my parents took me and I was afraid of the sand.
38. Have you been to countries outside the U.S.
Yes: Canada, Mexico, Israel
40. Time this survey ended
