I'm a little late in joining in with the meme, but I'm lucky to have finished it at all.


Q: What is your wallpaper on your computer?
Right now, it's a green screen with this photo in the center.

Q: How many televisions do you have in your house?
Ah, well...let me explain. We have three to four people living here, everyone with different interests, so we've got five TVs.

Q: Are you right handed or left handed?

Q:Have you ever had anything removed from your body?
One cyst, two babies, four wisdom teeth, and a few splinters.

Q: What is the last heavy item you lifted?
Heavy is relative. Sometimes the vacuum seems heavy, so carrying it up and down the stairs is a chore.

Q: Have you ever been knocked out?
I have passed out twice but never been knocked out by outside sources.

Q: If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
I don't think I'd want to know. I just watched The Bucket List, and when they knew they only had a few months to live, they were so rushed about everything.

Q: If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
When I was a kid, I went through a brief phase of wanting to be called Gail, my middle name. But now I like what I've got, Scout.

Q: What color do you think looks best on you?
Tough call. I like black because it's slimming, but I think I look better in bright colors. I am currently wearing brown shoes with big green polka dots, and they make me happy.

Q: Have you ever swallowed a non-food item?
Not intentionally. I'm sure I have swallowed bugs now and then. To irritate me, my daughter likes to tell me that people unknowingly swallow spiders almost every night while they sleep.

Q: Would you kiss a member of the same sex for 100 dollars?
I would kiss a woman on the cheek for free, so if someone were to pay me $100 for that, I'd take it.

Q: Would you allow one of your little fingers to be cut off for 200,000$?

Q: Would you never blog again for 50,000$?
Hmmm. I wouldn't mind the cash, but I kind of like blogging. It depends on how hungry I was or if my kids needed something I couldn't afford.

Q: Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for 1,000$?
Could I mix it with water? If I could dilute it, then yes. Husband once offered one of our girls $100 if she were to eat a hot pepper, so she cut it up into tiny bits and buried each piece in her pizza.

Q: Would you, without fear of punishment, take a human life for a million dollars?

Q: What is in your left pocket?
At the moment, nothing. My cell phone was in there earlier, but it was weighing my pants down, so I took it out.

Q: Is Napoleon Dynamite actually a good movie?
I've never watched it all the way through.

Q: Do you have hardwood or carpet in your house?
Both—carpet in some rooms, and hardwood in others. I prefer the wood.

Q: Do you sit or stand in the shower?
What kind of stupid question—I stand. If I wanted to sit, I'd take a bath.

Q: How many pairs of flip flops do you own?
I only have one—brown leather from Eddie Bauer.

Q: Last person who texted you?
My friend Joan.

Q: Last person who called you?
Hmm, probably also my friend Joan. We're working on a project which I will show you on Art Day.

Q: Last person you hugged?
Eustacia as she was leaving on a brief senior trip after graduation.

Q: Number?

Q: Season?
It would probably be autumn, although I appreciate all the seasons. I wouldn't like living in a place that was the same year round.

Q: Color?
Green in various shade, thus the polka dots on the shoes.

Q: Missing someone?
Kwanita (yep, that's her name), who is back at school after a few brief days at home, and Carolyn who has moved. Oddly, though, she's back in town, and we're going to have lunch today.

Q: Mood?
Eager. Is that a mood? I've got several projects going on, and I can't wait to get out to the garage to work on the big one, the one which I will show on Art Day.

Q: Listening to?
The clickety-clack of my keyboard and the occasional grunt of my cat who has a smushed in nose.

Q: Worrying about?
Not much.

Q: Wearing?
A dark pink t-shirt with tiny black dots and a pair of dark denim capris.

Q: First place you went this morning?
The potty.

Q: What can you not wait to do?
Get out there and get to work with the paint and the ideas that are running a mile a minute.

Q: Do you smile often?
Not too often. I find people who smile all the time suspect.

Q: Are you a friendly person?
I think I'm a very friendly person. In fact, just yesterday someone said I seemed the kind of person who could make friends with just about anyone.

I love that photo, Robyn!

Polka dot shoes make me happy, too.

As for the spiders, now you know that happens, surely you are KNOWINGLY swallowing spiders in your sleep. Which is way cooler to mention in polite company.

Yikes! Don't dilute your chili sauce with water, Robyn! Use milk or yoghurt. They'll take the heat out, while water won't.

Eager is a good mood.

That photo is the best-THE BEST. I can just feel that breeze pushing up that dress.

Loved that Robyn... and I thought you had a lovely smile when I met you.....

lynn said...

Yeah thanks for reminding me about swallowing spiders. It's taken me a good 15 years to forget that gem.

Not sure about the polka dot shoes Robyn, i'd have to see them i think.

I like your smile too. lol at the suspect thing. I suspect i smile a little too much.

I've forgotten the other things, i'll have to go back and look!

lynn said...

Oh yes the babies thing made me laugh! I never think to mention the three babies i've had 'removed' from mine! hehe.

Swallowing spiders in the night. Sounds like a book title; I plan to FORGET that dreadful thought if I can.

Kwanita - not sure about that one!

I forgot to ask where Eustacia went on her trip..?
