Continuing last week’s theme of getting to know me, I’m answering 21 questions that it appears went around the internet/blogs in 2011.
- Are you named after anyone?
Nope, my mom heard the name and liked it (and Dad liked it too).
- When was the last time you cried?
Last week while writing, and then re-reading, the 9 People Who Have Influenced Me article.
- Do you have kids?
- If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?
I’d like to think so.
- Do you use sarcasm a lot?
I used to use it a lot more. I don’t think I’m quite as sarcastic these days.
- Will you ever bungee-jump?
Is everyone else doing it? Seriously though, probably not.
- What’s your favorite cereal?
My favorite cereal really depends on what I feel like that day (and what I like now is a lot different than what I liked 20+ years ago). Generally though, I don’t eat cereal. I’m just hungry an hour later. Give me protein for breakfast.
- What’s the first thing you notice about people?
Is it bad that I’m not really sure? It’s probably their face and hair.
- What is your eye color?
- Scary movie or happy endings?
Happy endings (within reason). I don’t care for scary movies.
- Favorite smells?
Newly cut grass. Baking bread. My husband.
- Summer or winter?
Spring and fall.
- Computer or television?
Computer! I can watch television through a computer. And I can do a lot more stuff on a computer than with a television.
- What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?
The UK. Nate and I took a 10 day vacation there a few years ago and had a really great time.
- Do you have any special talents?
Hmm, does being able to sleep in a car even when I don’t think I’m tired count? I think one of the other things I can do is create a warm and welcoming group.
- Where were you born?
- What are your hobbies?
Church and reading (mostly business books these days).
- Do you have any pets?
Not right now. I’d like a dog, but Nate isn’t excited about that 🙂
- Favorite movie?
The one that comes to mind is Stardust. If Nate starts it I will stop what I’m doing and watch the whole thing.
- Do you have any siblings?
Yep, one wonderful sister (see last week’s article for a little more about her).
- What do you want to be when you grow up?
Initially I read this as what did you want to be when you grew up. Which is a different question entirely. As a kid I wanted to be a veterinarian because I love animals. And then I had biology in high school and realized I did not want to be looking at animal’s insides.
These days the answer generally boils down to happy.
