Getting to know me

I like answering questions about myself. And since no one asked, I'm asking them of myself. I found the list on someone else's blog and thought it looked like a more interesting list than I usually see. So, here goes...

1. The phone rings. Who are you hoping it is? I don't hear the phone ring.

2. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart? Yes, because I like to be helpful. Also, I worked at a grocery store for a number of years, and I hated rounding up stray carts.

3. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener? Depends on who else is there. With friends, I'm usually the talker. With new people, I'm usually the listener.

4. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, would you survive? I don't watch Survivor for nuthin'.

5. Do you like to ride horses? My aunt Susan took me riding a couple of times, and I loved it. Mostly I think I loved doing something special with her.

6. Did you ever go to camp as a kid? Girl Scout camp once. Hated it. Everything was damp, and I was overheard saying something bad about one of the chaperones, who happened to be my friend's mom. It was uncomfortable.

7. What was your favorite board game as a kid? I remember playing Sorry! a lot. And Monopoly, which I liked for some reason. And Candyland.

8. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew he/she was taken what would you do? Well, since I'm taken too, there's not much of a problem.

9. Are you judgmental? Yes. I'm not proud of it.

10. Would you date someone with different religious beliefs? Done it. Any religious belief is "different" to me.

11. Are you continuing your education? Formally? Perhaps someday. Informally, I learn new shit all the time.

12. Do you know how to shoot a gun? I shot at and hit a clay pigeon during hunter safety class in seventh grade. Haven't touched a gun since. But I think I would like to go to a shooting range and practice with a handgun. For protection purposes only...when I wrestle someone else's gun away from him.

13. If your house was on fire, what's the first thing you'd grab? The partner, then the cats. Then my wallet.

14. How often do you read books? Mostly every night before going to bed. Occasionally on the bus.

15. Do you think more about the past, present or future? Now that Chris is job-searching, I get to think about the future. Which is a nice distraction from the present.

16. What is your favorite children's book? I used to love the book about Prince Bertram the Bad. And the Richard Scarry books. And I get a kick out of Never Tease a Weasel.

17. How tall are you? 5'2"

18. Where is your ideal house located? Somewhere near my ideal job.

19. Last person you talked to? Chris

20. When was the last time you were at Olive Garden? Hmm...right before I moved from Iowa City. It was with Becky and Colleen as a going away luncheon.

21. What are your keys on your key chain for? Unlocking things.

22. What did you do last night? Paid my car registration, got groceries, ate Chinese food, and caught up on reading all the blogs I missed while I was out of town.

23. Do you like mustard? In very small quantities.

24. Do you like your mom or dad? They're the best parents I could have asked for. Aside from loving them, I like them very much.

25. How long does it take you in the shower? Depends on how tired I am. Sometimes I like to sit down and hang out awhile.

26. What movie do you want to see right now? Pan's Labyrinth.

27. What did you do for New Year's? Took my parents to the airport. Fretted about the warning light that came on in the car. Can't remember much else.

28. Do you think The Grudge was scary? I didn't see it.

29. Do you own a camera phone? Chris has it.

30. Who did you vote for on American Idol? I've never voted.
