46 ODD Things about you! If you opened this, FILL IT OUT! Learn 46 things about your friends, and let them learn 46 things about you!
1) Favorite objects in your room?
Big, giant bed; boyfriend; sometimes the dog. Sometimes fresh hydrangeas from the yard. Clean sheets. Mmmm….
2) Have you ever smoked heroin?
3) Do you own guns?
Nope. I wouldn’t trust myself with it; would be likely to accidentally shoot the wrong person, I suspect. And totally couldn’t live with that. I’d be, like, totally upset with myself if I shot and killed someone? Like, you know, whatever. ;-)
4) What flavor do you add to your drink at sonic?
Cherry limeade every time. Love it! I wouldn’t count it as a drink, per se, but I do also love the Tropical Fruit Smoothie. But hate that the smoothie machine is consistently “broken.” But only at night.
5) Do you get nervous before doctor appointments?
Depends on what I’m going for. Unless it’s something potentially cancer-y, I’m pretty okay.
6) What do you think of hot dogs?
I go through phases where I think they’re the greatest thing ever. The cheese ones, all grilled up on the George Foreman grill? Mmmmm….. The phases last like 3 days, then no hot dogs for 4-6 months.
7) Favorite song?
I don’t think I could name a favorite. Depends on my mood and that sort of thing.
8) What do you prefer to drink in the morning?
I love delicious coffee, with some sort of flavored creamer or that kind of thing. I also love Simply Apple apple juice, which basically tastes like cider. Frickin’ awesome :-)
9) Can you do push ups?
I can do the modified ones. I don’t think I could do a push-up that would pass military muster.
10) Can you do a chin up?
I have not tried in years, but if I had to guess, I would say no. I never could before. Couldn’t even successfully do the bent-arm hang thingy. Sad.
11) Favorite movie?
Again, I think this probably depends on what I’m in the mood for. For a long while, my favorite was Sliding Doors, which kind of looked at the idea of things happening at a particular time for a reason, and ultimately working out for the best interests of the people involved. It was a romantic comedy, too, though. I haven’t watched that forever, though.
12) Do you like blue cheese?
I didn’t used to, but now I LOVE it! I heart cheese.
13) Ever been in a car wreck?
Yes, but always (thankfully) non-injury accidents.
14) What’s one trait that you hate about yourself?
Hate’s a pretty strong word. But probably something body-issue related?
15) What’s one trait that you love about yourself?
I could go on about traits that I love about myself. Today, right now, anyway. :-) I’m a pretty big fan of my optimism, I would say.
16) Middle name?
17) Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment:
I love my boyfriend and his family and my dog.
I don’t want to go back to work tomorrow.
I am happy.
18) Name 3 things you bought yesterday?
I think I’ll skip this one. They’re not for sharing.
19) Name 3 drinks you drink regularly?
Coffee, water, fruit juice (apple or orange, mainly)
20) Current worry?
Probably money. Everything else is pretty darned good right now. And even the money thing is relatively taken care of.
21) Current hate right now?
Not liking my job that much yet. I HATE feeling incompetent, and this job does exactly that to me. And I’m not sure how fix-able that is. I think one underlying problem is like a mismatch between this specific part of my job and my personality traits.
22) How did you bring in the New Year?
Board games with a couple of friends, text messages from my new boyfriend even though we weren’t very official yet. sigh. :-)
23) Where would you like to be right now?
I’ve been kind of homesick for fall in Iowa lately. I’m not sure they’re having fall quite yet, though.
24) Name three people who will complete this?
I don’t know.
25) Do you own slippers?
I did, but I think my dog used one of them as a dog toy/attention-getting device, and so now I don’t own a pair of slippers. I may own a single slipper somewhere.
26) What shirt are you wearing?
A mustard-y yellow shirt that’s kind of tatoo-esque/rock and roll-y? I bought it a couple of years ago and haven’t really ever worn it. We’ll see if it goes outside of the house today. It’s a little more snug than I might prefer it to be.
27) Do you like sleeping on satin sheets?
I don’t think I ever have. It doesn’t sound particularly appealing to me, though.
28) Can you whistle?
Yes, but not using my fingers. I do a pretty good whistle-solo at the beginning of Winds of Change by the Scorpions? sweet. ;-)
29) Would you be a pirate?
I don’t think so. They were pretty violent.
30) What songs do you sing in the shower?
I don’t generally sing in the shower. But I did used to sing along with the bathroom fan that automatically came on in my apartment. I’d sing random songs that were stuck in my head in the key of the fan, OR I would just sing the pitch of the fan and then slide up and/or down to pitches that were awful and out of tune. Just for my own amusement.
31) Favorite girl’s name?
I’m a pretty big fan of the name Grace. And the concept, I suppose. I wish it were less popular.
32) Favorite boy’s name?
I kind of dig Ian or Liam; Irish type names.
33) What’s in your pocket?
Currently nothing. Typically I have my Burt’s Bees lip balm, and maybe random work-stuff–PECS cards, visual schedule cards, etc.
34) Last person that made you laugh?
Probably either myself or Boyfriend.
35) Best bed sheets as a child?
We didn’t have them as a sheet set, but just in a bag of random hand-me-downs, there was a Snoopy/Peanuts flat sheet that was pretty fantastic. I don’t remember any fantastic childhood sheet sets otherwise. I enjoy picking them out as an adult, though. I typically go for solids in colors that I like; nothing super-exciting.
36) Worst injury you’ve ever had?
I had a really bad sprained ankle once when I’d walked while my foot was asleep. I also got 2nd degree burns on both of my legs this past summer, which might actually be worse. I was pretty much bed/couch-ridden for almost a week. At least with the sprain I could still walk around upright.
37) Do you love where you live?
I love with whom I live :-) And the house is great; just a lot more suburban than I’m used to.
38) How many TVs do you have in your house?
2, I think?
39) Who is your loudest friend?
Probably any…well, most…of my boyfriend’s young female relatives.
40) How many dogs do you have?
41) Does someone have a crush on you?
42) What is your favorite candy?
Lately I’ve been eating Fast Break, which is like a form of peanut butter + chocolate? I’m a huge fan of the Take 5, which has a great balance of sweet and salty parts to it. And I love plain dark chocolate. Kitty want candy! (Gaffigan, 2007)
43) Favorite Sports Team?
Iowa Hawkeyes. It’s the only team I really follow fairly closely at this point.
44) Where is the next place you want to travel to?
I haven’t done a ton of traveling and there are lots of places I’d like to see and try out. I’d love to go to Ireland at some point. The next place I want to travel to that I’m also *likely* to travel to is Iowa.
45) What were you doing 12 AM last night?
Getting my boyfriend’s cousin addicted to the socially acceptable crack that is wedding planning/browsing. Me, alright?!? She learned it by watching me! (DEA, 1980-something) (Actually, I suspect very much that she did *not* learn it by watching me.)
46) What was the first thing you thought of when you woke up?
That is probably isn’t fair to pick a fight in real life with my boyfriend because he’d disappointed me in my dream by sneaking around planning our wedding, and told everyone except for me what he’d planned. Dream-jerk! ;-)
