questions i don't think i've answered yet

i was clicking through friends of friends blogs and found the following little questionnaire here:

(brace yourself- i'm cutting and pasting and feeling too lazy to decapitalize the questions.)


1. Nervous habits : tapping fingers on table, pacing
2. Are you double jointed? no, but i used to be quite flexible. perhaps i should work on that sometime. (you know- during all this free time i currently have.)
3. Can you roll your tongue? yes
4. Can you raise one eyebrow at a time? let me check......i can raise only my right one, but i can't raise just the left one
5. Can you blow spit bubbles? i used to be a spit bubble champ....haven't tried lately, though
6. Can you cross your eyes? yes
7. Tattoos: one
8. Piercings: just my ears for the last few years- 4 in left, 3 in right
9. Do you make your bed daily? why make it if i'm just going to mess it up again?


10. Which shoe goes on first? i don't really give it much thought, but probably the right
11. Speaking of shoes, have you ever thrown one at anyone? a pen? yes. a pillow? yes. a shoe? not unless you count cockroaches.
12. On the average, how much money do you carry? i don't usually carry cash. if it's in my pocket, i'll probably spend it.
13. What jewelry do you wear 24/7? a toe ring on my right foot. (i tried to add a second, but couldn't make it comfortable anywhere on my left foot, for some reason.) if i'm awake, i'm also sporting one of my many swatches.
14. Favorite piece of clothing:
semi formal: a dress bought in vegas for less than $100. i've worn it to every wedding i've attended.
old and casual: my favorite pair of polo jeans- too holey to wear without a long shirt.
new and casual: the cookie monster shirt i bought in canada. there's a picture of it on my photo blog.


15. Do you twirl your spaghetti or cut it? i'm a twirler, like any "proper" italian
16. Have you ever eaten Spam? yes, though i don't make a habit of it
17. Do you use extra salt on your food? not unless it really needs some help
18. How many cereals in your cabinet? in the cabinet? none. on top of the fridge, however, we've got cookie crisp (i wasn't allowed to have it when i was younger),cinnamon life, and i think there are a couple of boxes of that blueberry morning stuff
19. What's your favorite beverage? my new favorite is this blueberry cream soda i found in maine. i wish i'd bought a couple of cases of the stuff
20. What's your favorite fast food restaurant? fast food? hmmmm.....either quizno's, subway, or moe's, depending on my mood
21. Do you cook? when i have time


22. How often do you brush your teeth? not as often as i'm supposed to (my dentist advises 3 to 4 times daily because of my braces- let's just say i manage half of that one a good day)
23. Hair drying method: au naturale
24. Have you ever colored/highlighted your hair? for twelve years, until april 2004. i've been too lazy to mess with it ever since. (for the record, my hair's been red (high school graduation), pink (that one was unintentional) , orange, blonde, green (college graduation), blue (sadly, it didn't last long), and purple (another favorite).)


25. Do you swear? damn straight (but only when i'm not surrounded by kids or in front of a microphone)
26. Do you ever spit? on rare occasions


27. Animal: to eat? crabs
to look at? koala bears

28. Food: it's a toss up between tacos and lobster rolls
29. Month: probably july
30. Day: saturday- usually my easiest day, workwise
31. Cartoon: that's a good question....i'll have to come back to it, though i could pick several from my the simpsons, which i haven't caught in years
32. Shoe brand: lately, adidas and reebok, though i'm a sucker for funky airwalks (my tennis ball ones are a personal favorite)
33. Subject in school: history/social studies, despite my crappy memory
34. Color: blue
35. Sport: indoor or outdoor? how many participants?
36. TV shows: i'm rarely home, but if i had time to spend in front of the tube, i'd watch law & order reruns and work my way through my muppet show and a-team dvd collections

38. Thing to do in the summer: collect seashells on the beach
39. Thing to do in the autumn: jump in leaves
40. Thing to do in the winter: go sledding (unfortunately, it rarely snows in south carolina)

42. Person you talk most on the phone with: mama
43. Reading: i've just finished laurie notaro's latest, as well as a book called around the world in 80 dates and the reluctant metrosexual. i need to find out if augusten burroughs has a new tome out yet- if so, maybe i'll be able to get my hands on it by christmas.
44. Do you regularly check yourself out in store windows/mirrors? yeah....mostly to make sure my butt doesn't look too big
45. What color is your bedroom? rental apartment white
46. Do you use an alarm clock? yes, especially the handy "snooze" feature
47. Window seat or aisle? window


48. What's your sleeping position? i have a couple. i'm a big fan of the fetal position, but i also like to sleep on my stomach with my arms stretched underneath the pillows, whch my head may or may not be resting on.
49. Even in hot weather do you use a blanket? i'm a year round comforter kind of girl.
50. Do you snore? that's up for debate. i say "no", but everyone else says "yes"
51. Do you sleepwalk? only as i stumble to the shower before work
52. Do you talk in your sleep? yes, and quite frankly, i'm dreading not being alone at night, as i tend to have uh....colorful dreams involving boys other than the one i'm with.
53. Do you sleep with stuffed animals? on occasion (piglet or tuffy the tiger after a bad day)
54. How about with the light on? i can if i have to
55. Do you fall asleep with the TV or radio on? i used to have an inability to sleep without the radio on, but that changed a couple of years ago, when i started wakling up to an alarm clock that played music.
56. Last interesting person you met: hmm...this is a tough one. probably the owner of the hotel/restaurant where we stayed on prince edward island. mama and i sat and talked to her for a good half an hour.

feel free to borrow this, gang...especially if it's been a slow week.

A toss up between tacos and lobster rolls? Tacos... By far more nutritious and tasty. And I'm the one with problems because I don't like blue eyes best?
And you dry your hair au naturale? Does that mean you get naked so your hair dries?

duff said...

yes, yes, yes, and yes.

actually, i didn't say you had problems for not liking blue eyes best- it just lost me a couple of points on your list of criteria.

That was cool - I might steal it. :)

duff said...

steal away, my dear.
