Meme Time

From Jean, who got it from Witchypoo, who got it from...oh, you know how to backtrack.

Anyhoo, the game is to answer the questions and pass it on.

(x) Been to Canada? And despite all my attempts to escape, I'm still there.

( ) Been to Mexico? Not yet. Coming up. Quizas.

(x) Been to Florida? It's been awhile, but yes.

(x) Been on a plane? Several. Some of them were even commercial. And I got where I was intending to go, despite all efforts to the contrary.

(x) Been lost? Sometimes on purpose. You have no idea how liberating it can be until you try it.

(x) Been on the opposite side of the country? Both politically and geographically.

(x) Swam in the ocean? As far as what I do in the water can be called "swimming," yes.

(x) Cried yourself to sleep? I, too, was once an infant. Yes, I was!

(x) Played cops and robbers? At times, with real cops and real robbers!

(x) Played with a Tonka Truck? Every chance I could get it away from my brother-in-law, who stole it from his daughter.

(x) Recently colored with crayons? I sometimes do other things with crayons (make colored candles with them! What were you thinking?), but I have used them to color with on occasion.

( ) Sang karaoke? Nyet. When ya got yer own band, ya don't need the pre-recorded stuff.

(x) Paid for a meal with only coins? In an automat, that's the only way you can get anything to eat.

(x) Done something you told yourself you wouldn't? And loved every minute of it. Never mind, that's what.

(x) Made prank phone calls? Once upon a time...

(x) Caught a snowflake on your tongue? I'm really not sure. I mean, I tried a few times, but if you succeed, how can you tell? Duz a snoflayk has a flavr?

(x) Danced in the rain? Sure. I do excellent weather magick.

(x) Written a letter to Santa Claus? Yeah, well, about that...see, I was only a kid at the time, and I had really been counting on getting that pony, and I was so pissed about not getting it, and not even a courtesy note to say it had been back-ordered, or nothin', wasn't really hate mail...

(x) Been kissed under the mistletoe? And under the nose, and under...*ahem* Yes.

(x) Watched the sunrise with someone you care about? It's difficult not to watch the sunrise when you live in a place with a 24-hour swing that takes a year to accomplish.

(x) Blown bubbles? Not sure. Does she/he go by any other name?

(x) Made a bonfire on the beach? It was the only way I could figure out to cook the fish I caught.

(x) Crashed a party? Very likely. I lived through the Sixties, so I don't remember everything.

(x) Crashed a wedding? Oh, yeah. It was a Ukranian wedding -- you know those receptions can last for days? A friend of mine dragged me to one. I didn't want to go till I got there. Then I didn't want to leave.

( ) Crashed a funeral? Not a funeral person. I don't even plan on going to my own.

(x) Gone ice-skating? As I remember it, just previous to that was the last time my ankles ever made the proper connections between my feet and my shins. Now, I can feel them start to ache every time I see a woman wearing stiletto heels -- why do they do that to themselves?

1. Any nicknames? A few. Some of them are even acceptable in mixed company.

2. Mother's name? She always answered to "Mom."

3. Favorite drink? Preferably something liquid.

4. Any tattoos? Not yet. When they become easily removable, we'll talk, okay?

5. Body piercing? Yes. You get to guess where and how many.

6. How much do you love your job? Love is for mates, kittens, and chocolate. One does not love a job.

7. Favorite vacation spot? Pretty much any place away from home and my regular day-to-day life.

8. Ever been to Africa? No. You looking for company on your next trip? I'd love to visit Kenya.

9. Ever eaten cookies for dinner? Oh, probably. The Sixties, again.

10. Ever been on TV? Yes. Now you gonna ask what I was doing there?

11. Ever steal any traffic signs? Yes. From my younger brother, who had stolen them from the Highways Department. And in turn, someone stole them from me. My entire town probably fostered them at one time or another.

12. Ever been in a car accident? Not when I was driving, But I was in a couple of lulus as a passenger.

13. Drive a 2-door or 4-door vehicle? Have done. Not currently.

14. Favorite pie? Lemme see the menu...

15. Favorite Number? 1.6180339887

16. Favorite movie? That would depend entirely on my mood. All About Eve. Independence Day. Dirty Dancing. Beverly Hills Cop. Any of the hundreds of dollars' worth of movies that went missing when the Cavern got robbed back in July.

17. Favorite holiday? Almost everything except Christmas.

18. Favorite dessert? On top of pie? Ooooohhhh!

19. Favorite food? As in other than dessert and pie? Too much to choose from. Lemme see a menu.

20. Favorite day of the week? Tomorrow.

21. Favorite brand of body wash? I call it soap, and almost anything that's unscented will do.

22. Favorite toothpaste? Tea tree oil. Not tea-tree-oil-flavored toothpaste. The oil itself. One drop on a brush. Don't swallow.

23. Favorite smell? Lots of things as long as they're not chemically-loaded perfumes. I hate perfume. I don't care how much it costs.

24. What do you do to relax? Bang on things.

25. Do you have a message to your friends reading this? Those of my friends who are reading this are already getting the message.

26. How do you see yourself in 10 years? Pretty much the same way I do now -- I open my eyes in front of a mirror.

27. Furthest place you will send this message? Short of actually measuring the distance I could drop-kick it, I have no idea. Does distance count on the Internet?

28. Who will respond the fastest? The person who answers it first.

Tagging: Neil and JJ, with the hope that I am far enough away, or I've got enough of a head start, that I can outrun their revenge...

Jean: Actually I wanted a horse. But my parents convinced me a horse wouldn't fit down the chimney, so Santa wouldn't be able to bring me one. I figured that since a pony was smaller...

Tim: Ooooh...maybe it's a good thing I decided to tag only people I've never tagged before!
