40 days and 40 nights. Mememe.

  1. Do you like bleu cheese? Love it. I live in Wisconsin; there is no cheese I won't eat.
  2. Have you
    ever smoked?
    1969 – 1974. Not since.
  3. Do you own a gun? A .22 that was my dad's and was the gun I used for rifle training in sixth grade. Also a couple antique-ish shotguns/rifles, don't remember which. Dad was a hunter and kind of a collector. I think he had 8 long guns (no hand guns). The rest went to my cousin, a favorite of Dad's and also a hunter.
  4. Favorite
    type of food?
    Edible is good. Chocolate is mandatory. Anything with garlic and/or shellfish is good. Gravy. Mashed potatoes. Mexican, Italian, Thai. Very rare steak. At a traditional meal I tend to eat my vegetables first, don't know why.
  5. Favorite type of music? Hard rock. Other rock. World. Classical.
  6. What do you think of hot dogs? Good right off the grill. Otherwise, meh.
  7. Favorite Christmas movie? Love Actually.
  8. What do you prefer to
    drink in the morning?
    A glass of fresh orange juice and a 4-shot grande latte.
  9. Can
    you do push ups?
    Have never been able to except once in a dance class, age late 20s. We were doing swing-through push-ups with coordinated breathing, and I did one, no problem. Totally amazed myself. Had never done one before, haven't done one since.
  10. What’s
    your favorite piece of jewelry?
    Opal engagement ring. I lost the original about 15 years ago and have replaced and subsequently lost it twice. Time to replace it again.
  11. Favorite
    hobby?
    Three faves: reading, knitting, surfing the web. (Sorry, I don't do non-compulsory rules very well.)
  12. Do you have A.D.D.? Nope, but Smokey and #2 son do, so I am can recognize it at 100 paces.
  13. Do you wear glasses/contacts? Yes to both.
  14. Middle
    name?
    Marjory, after my mother.
  15. Name three thoughts at this
    exact moment:
    I wonder where I put my iPod? I need to find my iPod so I can finish listening to the book for Monday night book club. If I can't find my iPod should I go to book club anyway?
  16. Name three drinks you regularly
    drink:
    Water, coffee, beer, wine. (See "compulsory rules", above.)
  17. Current worry? Sustainability in everything — energy, food, economy, etc.
  18. Current
    hate right now?
    People who lie to win elections.
  19. Favorite place to be? Right here.
  20. How did you bring in the new
    year?
    Asleep in my bed.
  21. Someplace you’d like
    to go?
    Tahiti, the Louvre, Italy, Greece.
  22. Name three people who will
    complete this
    .
  23. Do
    you own slippers?
    No, but I need to make some for myself to wear when I go to knitting group at others' houses.
  24. What color shirt
    are you wearing?
    Red.
  25. Do you like sleeping
    on satin sheets?
    Have never done it so I don't know.
  26. Can you whistle? Yup. My mother gave me a really, really hard time when I was a kid trying to learn. "A whistling girl and a crowing hen / Are sure to come to some bad end."
  27. Where are you now? In my home office.
  28. Would you be a pirate? Nope, too much of a coward and law-abiding.
  29. What songs do you sing in the shower? Whatever earworm is currently occupying my brain, typically some pop song from the past 30 years.
  30. Favorite Girl’s
    Name?
    Kathryn (yeah, that's MY name).
  31. Favorite boy’s name? Don't have one, but when I was growing up I loved the name James.
  32. What is in your pocket
    right now?
    Nothing.
  33. Last thing
    that made you laugh?
    No idea. I laugh way too often to keep track.
  34. What vehicle do you drive? 1998 Isuzu Oasis (think Honda Odyssey; they were made in the same factory and are identical except for the name on the outside).
  35. Worst injury you’ve ever had?That broken ankle in 2008.
  36. Do you love where you live? Absolutely. Smokey and I both give thanks to our luck several times a week that we are fortunate enough to live on a clean lake in the woods in a beautiful rural area.
  37. How many TVs do you have in your house? Don't know. There is the one we watch. There may be others hidden in storage areas.
  38. How many computers do you have in your house? Don't know. In use are two desktops and a netbook. Smokey's laptop died last week. He has at least half-a-dozen to-be-rehabilitated laptops.
  39. If you changed your job, what would it be? Empress of the Universe as long as it was a part-time position.
  40. If you had three wishes what would they be? That each of my boys finds a good woman to spend his life with, that Andrew makes it through med school without a nervous breakdown, and that Smokey's and my health maintains. Yeah, that's probably more than three. Whatever. I'm greedy.
