My 27 Answers to the 27 Questions

by Elodia Strain
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.


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.


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.

Hey, these kinds of things are meant to be borrowed. They make for a quick blog post, too.
