25 Things

Since I don’t have time to troll other ppl’s blogs like Nicole does, I’m going to keep shamelessly doing the same memes she posts.  She is discriminating so I’m sure she’ll pick good ones.  Yell at her if you don’t like them.

  1. Explain what ended your last relationship? I’m actually not going to go into it, but the significant part is it was the only time I was ever dumped!  Good life lesson I guess.
  2. When was the last time you shaved? Yesterday in the shower.
  3. What were you doing this morning at 8 a.m.? Driving from the periodontist checkup to work.  This meant hitting the same rush hour traffic downtown TWICE.  I live somewhere that otherwise does not require me to go through downtown to get to work for a reason…
  4. What were you doing 15 minutes ago? Getting a flu shot at work.
  5. Are you any good at math? I’m decent at it.  I’m pretty handy with dimensional analysis!  I remember when the light finally went on for that one in 10th grade AP chem.
  6. Your prom night? Never went.
  7. Do you have any famous ancestors? Stonewall Jackson.
  8. Last thing received in the mail? A letter from Julia Carson saying I should vote for her.  It arrived on election day after I voted.
  9. How many different beverages have you had today? Water, water with Crystal Light mix.  The only other thing I usually drink is soymilk now that my dentist forbade Coke. 
  10. Do you ever leave messages on people’s answering machines? Sometimes.  I often prefer to get the voicemail than the actual person!  Meanwhile my own answering machine has several minutes of rabbit advice as the message because so many people call me to get rid of their pet or to take the baby bunnies they run over with the mower.
  11. Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach? I don’t think I ever have.
  12. What’s the most painful dental procedure you’ve had? Um, note the “dental” category in my blog.  But I think the worst procedure was extracting embedded baby teeth before I got braces.  I was awake for that one, unlike the wisdom teeth event.
  13. What is out your back door? A big yard where my dog likes to eat poopsicles.  Behind that is a creek with snakes and fish and herons. 
  14. Any plans for Friday night? Doubt it.  Rabbit stuff I guess, and Battlestar Galactica.
  15. Do you like what the ocean does to your hair? Nothing like feeling really sandy and dirty…
  16. Have you ever received one of those big tins of 3 different popcorns? Thank goodness no.  I barely like regular popcorn, let alone flavored.  And I would ONLY eat hot popcorn.
  17. Have you ever been to a planetarium? Yes, with the guy from #1.
  18. Do you re-use towels after you shower? Yes, for a few days.  The towels being repeatedly damp and drying in a humid environment encourages bacteria/mold growth–you can’t use them forever!  (That’s for you, David)
  19. Some things you are excited about? The Democrats winning a lot yesterday!  And the upcoming holidays (at least the time off work)
  20. What is your favorite flavor of JELLO? Red.  I suppose that was cherry–Gramma used to give it to us mixed with ice cream and I loved it.  But I don’t eat it anymore since it’s made from boiled dead animal feet.
  21. Describe your keychain(s)? A mini HPLC column on one set and none on the other.  I like to carry as little as possible!
  22. Where do you keep your change? In my pocket until I get to the car to put it in the tray for drive thru fund.
  23. When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group of people? My brother’s wedding in September.
  24. What kind of winter coat do you own? A black wool peacoat and I just bought a fake shearling coat that I might return.  When it’s coldest I have this great pea-green puffy warm coat that my mother doesn’t like.  I can’t find my winter hats yet!
  25. Do you sleep with the door to your room open or closed? Open so Casper can come and go and so any escaped foster rabbit escapades can be heard.
