dancing is as far as it goes

  • Don't you just hate that morning mouth taste? totally
  • Do you have a sore throat? no, at the moment I feel fine
  • What can you hear right now? AC, television (not my choice!), and fingernails on keyboard
  • Name three things you did yesterday: played with five baby kittens, ate at Hu Hot for the first time, and looked at some things on YouTube that melted my soul
  • What was the last thing you spent money on? random Target stuff
  • What is something you're going to do a lot of this week? driving
  • Do you like the singer B0n J0vi? no, I would truly rather that he fly off to that island where the other celebrity undesirables (the couch-climber, m#ll#ncamp, squinty-face) should all go to fade away.
  • What is the next concert you're going to? no plans
  • What is your favorite channel to watch on the television? wherever the show is that I want to watch. I'm not that sort of TV person.
  • Look behind you; what do you see? pillow. plants. glass door.
  • What were you doing at 8am this morning? Warning: Rant Ahead!
    "EIGHT AM THIS MORNING" is redundant. Either "AM" (not "am") or "this morning" would be fine. They mean the same thing!
    I was just getting out of bed. My parents had apparently decided that I'd slept long enough.
  • Can you crack your toes? Yep. I try not to crack my second toe on my right foot since I broke it, though. It still hurts a little.
  • What was the last movie you watched? Paths of Glory with Kirk Douglas. WWI action/courtroom/morality play. Not so good, really.
  • What grade are you in? If graduated, what year did you graduate? 1988, 1992, 1999 and 2004
  • Have you thrown popcorn at someone in a movie theater? only someone I'd gone to the movies with
  • Do you like redvines? meh
  • How about black licorice? not at all
  • How does your hair look right now? yes.
  • How long till your next birthday? 362 days
  • What fast food restaurant has the best fries, in your opinion? no clue. It's been a very long time since I've had fast food fries.
  • Do you sing along to the songs you know while in the car? naturally!
  • Name five things you do on a regular basis: read, procrastinate, send text messages, water plants, buy milk
  • Do you read often? yes. I probably average 3 books per week.
  • Who last IM'ed you? the Monkey
  • Do you think Bigfoot is real? (oh, the irony!) uh, that would be a big No.
  • Is there someone you wish would just fall off the face of this earth? yup. I'd even be willing to help.
  • Do you like the show Grey's Anatomy? I watched the second and third seasons. The music was fantastic (still is, I think?), the storylines were a fresh and compelling blend of medicine, sociology/psychology, and pointless entertainment, and there was an elegance of writing that seemed to draw the viewer toward the characters.

    After that third season, it all went to hell. Everything became strained, the soundtrack was grating and overtook the action, and even that was a blessing because the characters had become so far-fetched that they were annoying beyond compare. Kathryn Heigl is incredibly irritating, T.R. Knight & Isaiah Washington were geniuses to get out when they could, and I feel bad for the truly talented Patrick Dempsey, Sandra Oh and Kevin McKidd for still being stuck in that mess.

    In other words: No. I don't watch it.
  • Are you ashamed of your childhood? Ashamed of my childhood?! No. I am not. Who...?!

  • Are you cold right now? not even remotely
  • How is the weather outside? steamy
  • Have you ever had a broken heart? If so, how's your heart now? yes, of course. It's fine right now; the usual.

  • Do you know the difference between "your" and "you're"? yup
  • Do you have a Facebook? If no, then why not? I have two. And I have 17 friend requests pending, with which I really should deal.
  • Do you do surveys often? on vacation, they're a very easy post. In my ordinary life, I try not to do them more than once every couple of days.
  • Do you have a best friend? I have four.
  • Do you hate it when people ask you questions about the war? I much prefer when people ask me about the Second World War, 'cause I know a great deal more about it.

  • What is one of the worst things about waking up? everything
  • Have you ever felt like/have run away from home? only when I separated from my spouse. Isn't that a fun story?
  • Last encounter you had with a police officer: lunch
  • Did you answer any of these questions with "I don't know"? not exactly, but I came very close on only one
