Killing Time

1. FIRST NAME? Got one!
2. WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? No. I was named after a plant.

4. DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? Depends on the day. Don’t these question maker-uppers realize that these kinds of yes or no questions don’t provoke soul-searching?
5. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCH MEAT? The kind I don’t have to eat.

9. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? Til death do us part.
10. WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Let’s see, would I attach a stretchy cord to my feet and hurl myself off of a really high ledge… That’s SUCH a tough question.
11. DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? No way, I’m too busy and important to waste time with that.
12. FAVORITE SONG AT THE MOMENT? Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush. I don’t know. I’ll tell you after I go to Jamie Barnes’s show tonight.
13. DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? Only if I don’t shower.
14. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM? Chunky Monkey or Pistachio Almond.
15. WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE? Their smile, unless they’re sad or angry, and then I notice that they’re sad or angry. I’m very observant.
17. WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOUR SELF? Selfishness — ugh.
18. WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? My ex, but my aim is improving (ba-dum ching!)

20. THE LAST THING YOU ATE? A little square of dark chocolate, purely for the antioxidant value.

33. WHAT COLOR SHIRT ARE YOU WEARING? Blue with a green cardi over it.

  1. 1. Where did you get those questions?
    2. You were NOT named after a plant. Your name means “crown of victory, by the Grace of God”, specifically chosen because you were the first child to survive after 4 losses. You were our “crown of victory”, and you still are!

  2. Here's a link for you regarding the whole farther/further issue.

    I didn't know you were born in Bloomington! I'd like to go there sometime just to bum around. We should do it! Apparently there's a GREAT Tibetan restaurant there.

  3. “My ex, but my aim is improving”

    Priceless.

    I loooooove Indian.

    See, I found your blog again. After I'd given up on it because you'd given up on it. Maybe Rabby will even find it again one of these days …

  4. OK, Tibetan is pretty random, I have to say. What sort of food is Tibetan food? The last time my family and I were there we ate at a place called Lenny's (not Denny's) that had these amazing chicken and black bean quesadillas that I loved so much, I just had to recreate them at home. They're now one of my family's favorite meals! Yummy!
