Quizzy Quiz

The Large Hadron Collider *pops* went online less than an hour ago, and contrary to the wacky beliefs of some, we're all still here.
For what it's worth.

So, the destruction of Earth safely delayed for the time being, I present another in a never ending series of of those interminable quiz thingies that circulate on The Tubes.

So let's get to it, folks.

Do you sing in the car? Yes. To disco music. Really loud, too. With hand gestures at stoplights. Srsly.

Dance in the shower? good heavens, no.

Ever use a gun? As in “to shoot”, or to hold up a table leg, or what? To shoot, yes.

Last time you got a picture taken from a photographer? my wedding, i think.

Are musicals cheesy? yes. that does not make them bad, though. Cheesy is good.

Is Christmas stressful? Yes, inherently so.

Favorite type of fruit pie? pecan... no, cherry... wait. chess. Ummm... Is there “bad” pie?

What did you want to be as a kid? a paleontologist.

Do you believe in ghosts? No. Do they believe in me?

Ever have a déja-vu feeling? Once. i dreamed one night about going somewhere i was going the next day.

Take daily vitamins? Yes, sometimes. So i guess that makes that a “no”, since i don't take them daily, But when i do, i take the kind that are meant to be taken daily, so... what was the question again?

Wear slippers? Own them. But i conveniently forget to wear them most of the time because i like the feeling of bare feet.

Wear a bathrobe? Sometimes

What do you wear to bed? My favorite is a spaghetti strap gown made of gray tee-shirt material with tiny blue flowers.

First concert? i don't recall. i want to say The Police, but i'm not 100% sure. The early 80's were a heady time. i can't be expected to remember most of it.

Walmart, Target, or K-Mart? Wal*Mart usually. Target occasionally. K-Mart never; it's too creepy. The fluorescent lights flicker and give me a headache, and the way K-Mart employees look at you when you come in. I'm not saying for sure, but they may be zombies. Or something.

Nike or Adidas? Chuck Taylor Converse high tops.

Fritos or Cheetos? Neither.

Corn nuts or Sunflower Seeds? Sunflower seeds. Corn Nuts are nasty and very hard on teeth.

Have you ever chosen a boy/girl over a friend? i wouldn't allow anyone to put me in the position to have to do so. No one's ever tried, though.

Ever take dance lessons? No. Well, ballet lessons when i was little.

Can you curl your tongue? No. i have the other kind of tongue (the ability to do that or not is genetic, don't you know).

Ever won a spelling bee? No. i don't recall even ever being part of one.

Have you ever cried because you were so happy? Yes, at my wedding. When my children were born. That's about it.

Own any records or record player? Bought a record this week. Do not own a record player. Is that great planning, or what?

Regularly burn incense? No, but i like it. i have a bird, though, and she doesn't.

Who would you like to see in concert? Morrissey. And the Talking Heads. And the Pogues. And the Pixies. Pretty much everyone else is either dead or Ive already seen them, or both.

Ever been in-love? Yes.

Hot tea or iced-tea? Both are great, but i prefer iced on a daily basis.

Tea or coffee? Tea. i really don't like coffee without unhealthy amounts of sugar and cream.

Favorite kind of cookie? Chocolate Chip.

Can you swim well? Yes. i love to swim.

Can you hold your breath without manually holding your nose? Yes.

Are you patient? Hmmmmm. For some things, yes. For others, no.

Ever won a contest? Yes.

Ever have plastic surgery? No, but i'd like to. There are three kinds of women. Those who have had plastic surgery, those who would like to have plastic surgery, and those who lie about the first two. i have never met a woman who wouldn't like to “improve” something about her body. Sexist? Ya, probably. That doesn't negate the truthiness of it, though.

Which are better, black or green olives? i love them both, but probably black edges out green by just a bit.

Can you knit or crochet? Both. i'm better at crochet.

Best room for a fireplace? The living room, i think. i love a fire in the fireplace while sitting on the sofa with the lights out, looking out the window at the snow.

What is the best way to show affection? Ummmm...

Would you rather do without your cell phone or your car? Cell phone.

Do you have any regrets? Yes, but most of them involve not doing things sooner. i strive to not ever regret things that i have actually done.

Did you do well in high school? Meh, Could have done better. Could have done worse. I enjoyed myself, so that counts for a lot, IMO.

Do you still talk to people from high school? One. There are two people i'd like to find, but wouldn't know where to look.
