my high school sweetheart was killed in a drag race

  1. Have you ever performed the Heimlich Maneuver on someone or had it performed on you? not for the purpose of correcting a choking problem
  2. Do you have a red room in your home? (Either painted red or red curtains etc.) "Red room! Red room! Over there!" Ahh--from one of my favorite episodes of The Simpsons. Can you tell me who was speaking those lines?

    My bathroom has red rugs. Does that count?
  3. Have you ever felt like banging your head against the wall? only pretty much every time I'm in a meeting with the consortial colleagues.
  4. Reports came out this week that Michael Jackson was gay. Are you shocked, don't believe it, don't care or felt he was all along? I always knew--you could tell by the jackets he wore!

    In all seriousness, who cares? To each his/her/its own.
  5. What's the dumbest thing you have done after a breakup with a SFO? curled into a ball in front of the couch in the dark and contemplated my psyche for 3 months
  6. If Berleen and Bud are standing on the roof of a one story building and decide to throw water balloons at Kimber walking down below on the sidewalk, what color balloon hits her first? black
  7. What are the wildest, craziest pajamas you own? that's for me to know, and a very select audience to find out, eh?
  8. Have you ever ridden in a sidecar on a motorcycle? no, but I know someone who's proclaimed it her life's ambition to do so. And I saw a movie this weekend in which Kirk Douglas made riding in a sidecar look dignified, which is not its ordinary condition.
  9. Do/did you go party on Cinco de Mayo, and if so what color was the bartender's shirt? green!
  10. Why does a hat have a bill? because there's no such thing as a free lunch, even if it's a chicken hat (which, technically, could have two bills)
  11. If you were a WWE professional wrestler, what would your stage name be? 'Thirteen'
  12. How many keys do you have on your keyring? 6
  13. What is the oldest picture you currently have in your home? What year was it taken and who/what is the photo of? I have an 11x14 (possibly 16x20?) of the members of the Supreme Court of IL, and after discerning the identity of those in the photo, it was determined to have been taken somewhere between 1911 and 1918. It was a gift from my former aunt-in-law. (I had mistakenly reported it "ungifted" but recently found it in a closet, where I had placed it anticipating a move that did not materialize. Sorry, Clara!) It is a very cool photo and looked distinguished hanging next to my law school diploma, which is oversized and pathetic. When I build that dream house with the library, I'll rehang that photo.

    re #13: I think you told me it had 'gone home' as well, so I'm glad you managed to hang on to it!
