Hope Marsha doesn’t mind if I jump on the bandwagon too…
WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? Yes. My great grandmother Elodia who said our name was a Mexican Indian name meaning “queen of the day.” I’m not sure if she just said that, but hey, sounds good to me.WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED? Today when I read my Valentine’s Day card from my husband.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? Grilled chicken patty.
IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? I guess it would depend who I was…I mean, I don’t think the leader of an “I hate books and beaches and babies” club would like me very much.
DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT? Not really, but I think it likes to use me.
DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? They’re no longer in my body. So if I did still have them, it might be a little weird.
WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Maybe if the laws of the universe were completely different.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Puffins! I can’t get enough of those things.
DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Well, I wear flip-flops in the summer, Uggs in the winter, and heels to church so… not a whole lot of lace action going on here.
DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? I finally graduated to the 10lb dumbbells so if you think that’s strong…
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Anything Blue Bell. Why do I not live in Texas?! Or in an Outback Steakhouse.
WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE? A dill pickle. I seem to be going through a weird pickle phase.
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? The sound of the white-noise fan, since I’m typing from the bed before sleepy time.
FAVORITE SMELLS? Citrus, clean laundry.
WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? A woman at my health insurance company.
FAVORITE SPORTS TO WATCH? Dancing (if you consider that a sport) and ice skating.
FAVORITE FOOD? Chips and Salsa.
SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? Happy endings. I’m such a sissy when it comes to scary movies—I had nightmares after watching Transformers. So definitely happy endings.
LAST MOVIE YOU WATCHED? No Reservations—which I actually really enjoyed.
SUMMER OR WINTER? Winter.
WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING NOW? Gucci Gucci Coo—I couldn’t resist the title.
WHAT IS ON YOUR MOUSE PAD? I don't use one with this computer.
WHAT DID YOU WATCH ON TV LAST NIGHT? Back episodes of Project Runway. I’m ridiculously obsessed with that show.
ROLLING STONES OR BEATLES? Beatles. I could listen to Blackbird every day of my life.
WHAT IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME? Philadelphia, PA.
DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL TALENT? It depends what qualifies as special. I have an internal alarm clock. You know, like Kramer on Seinfeld. Seriously, I can tell myself before going to bed, “Wake up in 8 hrs.” and I will (barring a bout of mono or something) wake up within 5 minutes of my target. I think I inherited that from my military Dad.
WHERE WERE YOU BORN? Fairbanks, Alaska.
