What's this all about? All types of questions stolen from every corner of the blogosphere. (Go HERE to find out more.) This week we have The Random Questions, Part 683.
- How old do you look?
As old as I am.
- Where do you live?
- Are you waiting for something?
Yes, several things. Today, I'm mostly waiting to hear from M's brother who's visiting from Florida.
- What’s one pet peeve of yours that is not common?
???? I have many peeves, pet and otherwise. Probably none of them are really uncommon.
- Do you want/have kids?
- Have you ever thought about converting your religion?
I was raised Methodist, and "converted" to Presbyterian when I married. Technically, I'm still Presbyterian, but I'm not currently involved in any organized religion.
- Last shocking news you heard?
I suppose I could say the terror attacks in London last night. But at this point, terror attacks aren't really that shocking anymore.
- What was the last thing you drank?
- Who do you most look like in your family?
I look a lot like my mother's youngest sister. Also look a lot like my father and a couple of his older sisters. There's definitely a resemblance to both families, so even though I used to think I might have been adopted, I've always known that can't be true.
- If you could have something right now, anything, what would it be?
Wow, what a dangerous question. Of course, I'd like a cure for cancer and an end to poverty and ignorance, worldwide. I'd like people to stop killing each other. But that's asking an awful lot, right? So I'll just say: I'd like an intelligent, educated, real adult human being with a real brain as president, please. (You asked.)
- Where does most of your family live?
This sounds like one of those questions they warn you not to answer on the Internet. I have family all over the place.
- Where did you grow up?
Another security no-no. But OK, I grew up in Texas.
- Where do you want to go on vacation?
Back to Hawaii or Rehoboth. Also always wanted to visit the Grand Canyon. Also hope to see Italy before I get too old to know what I'm seeing.
- Have you ever had a panic attack?
- What can’t you wait for?
Can't think of anything, really. I've learned patience in my old age.
- When’s the last time you told someone you loved him or her and meant it?
Last night. The hubby. Meant it when I said it and always.
- Have your parents ever smoked pot?
Neither of my parents is still with us. I can say without a doubt that my mother never smoked pot. Not so sure about my father — he was in the Navy during WWII, stationed in California and England. Who knows what he might have gotten up to back then?
- Want someone back in your life?
Yes. A few I can think of.
- What do you order at the bar?
It depends. On many factors. Where, when, who I'm with, if I'm driving, etc. Usually either white wine, a margarita or Tanqueray and tonic.
- When was the last time you cried really, really hard?
I've answered this several times recently. I'm not a crier.
- What are your nicknames?
And another one of those don't tell questions. Passwords, you know.
- What is your favorite thing to eat with peanut butter?
More peanut butter. I love peanut butter. It's one of my favorite foods. I could just eat it out of the jar with a spoon and be perfectly happy. Unfortunately, I seem to have developed a mild allergy to peanuts/peanut butter and don't eat it anymore. When I did, I liked it by itself on crackers. Or in a sandwich with sliced bananas. But my favorite (back in the day) was peanut butter and crispy bacon on white bread. Now that's a killer sandwich. Literally.
- Where were you on July 4th, 2008?
Well now, Inspector. I'm not sure — let me check my diary. Hmmm. Seems we were in Shenandoah National Park, hiking the Deep Hollow Falls trail. I had my travel doll Kayla with me.
- If you could go forward in time, how far forward would you go?
I'm not sure I'd want to. I don't think I'm going to like the future we seem to be making for ourselves.
- If you could go back in time, how far back would you go?
I wouldn't. I'm really pretty happy with living in the present. I like to read about time travel, but don't think I'd really care to experience it.
