Be Mine

Well, hey, it’s one of those online quiz things.  I got this one from Veggie Mama.

1. First name?
2. Were you named after anyone?
No.  I think it was one of the few my parents agreed on.
3. Do you wish on stars?
I did.  It worked!

4. When did you last cry?
Today when I called to make Willow an appointment at the urgent care clinic to check out her ears (I have an otoscope, and they’ve been pink for about ten days, and she acts like they bug her.  I don’t think they’re infected.  But, if they are, after this long it’s probably bacterial and not viral, so I called.) and found out that her health coverage ended on January 31 (she’s on a medi-cal plan, which is like medicaid).  I’ll try and get it figured out tomorrow. 

5. Do you like your handwriting?
When it’s neat I do.  Lately it’s not so neat.

6. What’s your favorite lunch meat?
Veggie bacon.

7. What is your birth date?

8. What is your most embarrassing CD?
Hmmm.  Probably the Spandau Ballet stuff I can’t seem to part with but also can’t listen to. 

9. If you were another person, would YOU be friends with you?
Some days, yes.

10. Are you a daredevil?
When no body else is at risk, I can be.

Yes.  But, what you do with what you got is more important that what you got.

13. How do you release anger?
I think it’s all stuck in my neck.

14. Where is your second home?
I like to hide in the bathroom and read, does that count?

15. Do you trust others easily?
Yes.  Dumb, maybe, but I expect people to live up to it. 

16. What was your favorite toy as a child?
Raggedy Ann.  I still have her, but she’s really worn.  Her eye is missing and her dress literally fell apart. 

17. Which class in high school do you think was totally stupid?
Driver’s ed.  Mostly because the girl who sat near me always sang that stupid stupid song, "I wanna be a cowboy" or was it cowgirl?

18. Do you have a journal?
I haven’t written in a paper journal in a long time, just this one.

19. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Yes, my kids even say -sarcastically, of course- "I love the sarcasm, Mom.".

No, my hands are usually full.
