I saw this on a friend’s Facebook page and thought it looked like fun. The way it’s supposed to go is that you post your name and I’ll do all these things for each of you, but when I first read it, I misunderstood the rules: I thought that for the first commenter I would do the first thing, for the second commenter I would do the second thing and so on. So on my blog we’re going to play it my way because that sounds easier to me. Of course, I may not have nine readers, so in that case maybe I’ll play by the original rules—ah the possibilities!
Post your name and I will do each of the following:
1. I’ll respond with something random about you.
2. I’ll tell you which song or movie
you reminds me of you.
3. I’ll pick a color I feel suits you.
4. I’ll say something that only makes sense to you and me (if possible. If not, I’ll say something that only makes sense to me.)
5. I’ll tell you my first memory of you.
6. I’ll tell you what animal you remind me of.
7. I’ll ask you something I’ve always wondered about you.
8. I’ll tell you my favorite thing about you.
9. I’ll tell you my least favorite thing about you. No need to fear #9.
Rebecca tagged me for a meme, so here I go. Actually, truth be told, I started this entry way back when I saw it on Lindsey’s blog, but I’m a terrible procrastinator (can that be my Worst habit?).
A: Attached or Single? Definitely attached. In the spirit of the question, married. But my first thought (ETA: referring to the fact that I am breastfeeding my son, Simon) was, “Yep, attached every two to three hours.”
B. Best Friend? Jason. And beyond that, I have amazing, amazing friends.
C: Cake or pie? Yes, please. Just a little slice of each.
D: Day of choice? Big things seem to happen for us on Wednesdays (started dating, got engaged, Simon was born, brought Simon home from the hospital). These days I look forward to Thursdays (because that’s when Burn Notice is on). But my final answer is Sundays—I love spending time with the family.
E: Essential Item? Something for Simon to chew on. Anything, really.
F: Favorite color? Orange? Green? Not necessarily together, though. My favorite color combination right now is chocolate brown and most any kind of red.
G: Gummy bears or worms? Either. Yum.
H: Hometown? I went to high school in Omaha, but my parents have since moved to Fremont (where I also went to elementary school).
I: Favorite indulgence? Spending a long, long time at a restaurant for dinner.
J: January or July? January. Don’t mind the cold as much as I hate the hot.
K: Kids? One so far.
L: Life isn’t complete without? Family, friends.
M: Marriage date? August 6, 2005
N: Number of brothers and sisters? One younger sister; and one brother-in-law and one sister-in-law.
O: Oranges or apples? Apples.
P: Phobias? Bugs in food.
Q: Quotes? Love ‘em. Used to keep books full of them.
R: Reasons to Smile? I get to spend my days with Simon.
S: Season of choice? Fall. By all means, fall. I don’t even care that winter follows. Fall.
T: Tag 5 People: Shelli and/or Neil, Brook, Charity, Ann, and of course, anyone who is game.
U: Unknown fact? This is becoming more of a known fact since I keep sharing it as an unknown, but anyway: I once made my dad so mad that he passed out.
V: Vegetable? Okay.
W: Worst habit? Paying bills late; starting and not finishing (projects, commitments to healthful living, etc.)
X: X-ray or Ultrasound? Ultrasound, unless it is by that one horrible, horrible, wretched tech at St. Es, then SKIP IT.
Y: Your favorite food? This changes regularly. Lately, I’ve been loving tomatoes with fresh mozzerella and crusty bread.
Z: Zodiac Sign? Leo, but who cares?
