Meme About Me

I find these sorts of things vastly amusing, not to mention useful as a quick and easy way to get a blog post up. Big thanks to Mary P. for bringing it to my attention. On to the questions…

1. What time did you get up this morning?

It was still dark out.

2. Diamonds or Pearls?
Both, but I guess if I have to choose only one I’ll go with diamonds.
For a while now, though, I’ve been saying I really want to get a pearl-and-diamond ring. I like the way pearls and diamonds look together.

3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
I think the last one was Scoop, which Fiance and I saw a few weeks ago.
We liked it.

4. What is your favorite T. V. show?
I don’t think I really have a favorite.
Maybe Gilmore Girls takes top priority, though, followed closely by MXC.

5. What did you have for breakfast?
Special K Vanilla Almond cereal.
And a grande vanilla latte from Starbucks when I got off the train.

6. What is your middle name?
Lynn, so named for my dad’s older sister.

7. Favorite cuisine?
Probably straight-up American.
I’m a meat-and-potatoes sort of girl.

8. What foods do you dislike?
Onions, pickles, and cucumbers. BLECH! And Mountain Dew – nasty!

9. What is your favorite chip flavor?
I don’t think I have one.
Chips are sort of so-so in my book anyway. I like Ruffles with onion dip, though. I know, I know, I said I don’t like onions, but I do like onion dip. I’m a walking mess of contradictions. It keeps me exciting. :-P

10. What is your favorite CD at the moment?
Again, don’t know that I have one. I recently bought Rascal Flatts Me and My Gang, which I like a lot.

11. What kind of car do you drive?
A silver 2001 Plymouth Neon named Ginger. I used to have an antenna ball named Fred (get it? Fred and Ginger?), until vandal punks cut my antenna off to steal him. :(

12. Favorite sandwich?
Monte Cristo…. mmmm…. Ham, turkey, and cheese, deep fried and served with jam – what could go wrong?

13. What characteristics do you despise?
Stupidity, pretension and self-righteousness.

13a. What characteristics do you like about someone?
A good sense of humor, a caring/loving disposition, wit and intelligence.

14. Favorite item of clothing?
Totally depends on the occasion, my mood, and what I most recently bought. I’ve been pretty fond of one pair of gray sweatpants for a couple years now, though, just ‘cause they’re really darn comfortable and they look pretty good on me, too (which is a hard balance to strike with sweats).

15. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would you go?
Disneyland. I LOVE Disneyland. L-O-V-E.

16. What color is your bathroom?
Kind of cream-colored with peach-ish tiles. I think it’s a pretty nice bathroom, personally.

17. Favorite brand of clothing?
No favorite brands. Favorite stores are Target and Payless, though. Yeah, I’m a bargain shopper - want to make something of it?

18. Where would you retire to?
I don’t know – retirement’s an awfully long time away. Can I just stay here?

19. What was your most memorable birthday?
Tough call. My 17th birthday was pretty memorable – the year I had a surprise party and only two people came. That was really, really depressing. On the opposite end of the spectrum, my 22nd birthday was awesome – I had a huge dance party in Roble Dance Studio with about 75 guests. That was very cool. :)

20. Favorite sport to watch?
Football, then hockey.

21. Goals you have for yourself?
Get married, have kids, be a good wife and mother. I have other goals, but they’re all pretty minor compared to those. Those are the ones that really matter. :)
