50This thing has made the rounds, and I hereby and now yoink it from the lovely Tiff. It’s a set of questions one is supposed to answer. Easy peasy, lemons are squeezy!

  1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought? Meh (Hair is something I used to have, and there’s not much that can be done about it).
  2. How much cash do you have on you? None. Spent the last $7 on a binder for my work photos.
  3. What’s a word that rhymes with Door? Floor. Why does anyone want to know this? New to English, are we?
  4. Favorite planet? Earth is good. I’ve always had a fondness for Saturn too.
  5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone? An outfit for which I do some work.
  6. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone? I don’t have the one I really want, which is an old-fashioned kitchen phone with the bells… And the yip yip monsters.
  7. What shirt are you wearing? White tee shirt under my NYC hoodie – tres comfy
  8. Do you label yourself? Nope. Why would I?
  9. Name the brand of shoes you’re currently wearing? Airwalk. Very comfy.
  10. Bright or dark room? Depends on the use, but generally bright. Lots of daylight, please.
  11. What do you think about the person who took this survey before you? She’s hott. And smart, funny, good with words, and snuggly.
  12. What does your watch look like? I break watches. So right now, it’s a hair past a freckle.
  13. What were you doing at midnight last night? Snoring and drooling, most likely. Possibly inflating the duvet. One can never know what one’s body does while asleep.
  14. What did your last text message received on your cell say? Grrrr
  15. Where is your nearest 7-11? Not sure – this area’s not big on 7-11ses.
  16. What is a word that you say a lot? Hello
  17. Who told you she loved you last? Tiff
  18. Last furry thing you touched? Mutzi the cat. She’s adorable.
  19. How many drugs have you done in the last three days? None, unless you count merlot. And a quantity in the ‘far-too-much’ range of bourbon over the weekend.
  20. How many rolls of film do you need developed? None more recent than 12 years. I don’t know if I have any of those around, I’m all digital all the time since 2002.
  21. Favorite age you have been so far? Now is good. 31 was good for self-discovery and maturity, 17 was fantastic for fitness, but I wouldn’t trade. Time travel always introduces time-space tears which require very convoluted and expensive solutions.
  22. Your worst enemy? Spiders. Oh and procrastination. I know no humans that I consider enemies.
  23. What is your current desktop picture? A plush moth, much like the last Wordsmiths prompt.
  24. What was the last thing you said to someone? Thank you.
  25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly what would it be? Million bucks please. I would complete my flight lessons and still have $996,500 left over. Then I’d buy an airplane, pay off the house and cars, and live comfortably on the invested interest for the rest of my life.
  26. Do you like someone? I like more people than I dislike at a 20:1 ratio.
  27. What is the last song you listened to? I don’t remember precisely, but it was in the same batch as ‘Home Cooking’ by Rick Fink and his Gas House Gorillas.
  28. What time of day were you born? 10:30 PM.
  29. Favorite number? If I had one, it would be 5.
  30. Where did you live in 1987? Parents’ basement, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
  31. Are you jealous of anyone? Nope. If I wanted to have what they have, I’d have to do what they did. Either it’s the time travel problem, or just not worth it.
  32. Is anyone jealous of you? Now how on earth would I know that? I doubt it.
  33. Where were you when 9/11 happened? At work, nearly every year.
  34. What do you do when vending machines steal your money? Sigh.
  35. Do you consider yourself kind? Mostly.
  36. If you had to get a tattoo, where would it be? Upper arm, I suppose.
  37. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be? German. I took 2 years of it in high school, and always liked it. They use lots of syllables.
  38. Would you move for the person you loved? I have done.
  39. Are you touchy feely? I like a snuggle, but not with just anyone. I am NOT a ‘close talker.’
  40. What is your life motto? “Yep.” Although I’ve always liked my cousin Jeff’s saying: “The best fertilizer is a farmer’s shadow.”
  41. Name three things you have on you at all times? Skin, hair, dust mites.
  42. What is your favorite town/city? Tough question. I like lots of ‘em, usually small towns like Rockford MI, Boone NC, or my current home town.
  43. What was the last thing you paid for with cash? See #2.
  44. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it? Before Christmas, to my grandma.
  45. Can you change the oil on a car? See #40 (a).
  46. Your first love: what is the last thing you heard about him/her? Haven’t traveled in that circle since 1988, so it’s been a while.
  47. How far back do you know about your ancestry? 3 generations. There were immigrants.
  48. The last time you dressed fancy, what did you wear and why did you dress fancy? It was a hitchin’, and I wore a suit jacket and black pants. And a tie. Plus some nice flowers. And a smile.
  49. Does anything on your body hurt now? My back was sore until you asked me that. Better now.
  50. Have you been burned by love? Yep.
