ok i normally hate doing these because it tends to be info that just seems (to me) to be useless and just plain dumb.
anyway, i just found this off of one of the blogs that i subscribe to, and i thought this one sounded interesting…different from what i usually see out there…so here goes:
1.How old do you wish you were? 40…i know this is odd because i’m not quite 38 (will be on nov 11!) but i just think 40 sounds like such an awesome age! especially as a woman. i tend to view age in conjunction with wisdom, and so i guess i am hoping i’ll feel wiser at 40, LOL!!
2.Where were you when 9/11 happened? we were asleep and my husband’s mother called us and told us about the first tower…we got out of bed and watched the news in shock and saw the second tower go. i didn’t turn the tv off at all during the day for at least a week straight…
3.What do you do when vending machines steal your money? if its outside a store, i go inside and tell them usually, and ask if i can get a refund. or else i just shrug and am thankful it wasn’t a lot of money and move on.
4.Do you consider yourself kind? i like to think so…there are definitely times i don’t believe i am.
5. If you had to get a tattoo, where and what would it be? maybe on my back, shoulderblade…not sure what. i had really wanted one there, or on my upper arm, for a long time (pre-kids)…was thinking about a globe with dolphins swimming around it with a vine or something earthy…but never could make up my mind so i never did it.
6. If you could be fluent in any other language what would it be? definitely spanish (because its the most useful in california) or sign language…i still hope someday to be.
7. Do you know your neighbors? not really. on one side of us are some nice renters–young 20somethings (all boys), who like to throw parties but are very respectful of us about it…and on the other side a family consisting of an older couple and their daughter, i think? and her 3 young boys…the grandpa is a convicted rapist so we keep our distance. someone who knew him tipped us off years after we’d lived there and i confirmed it on the megan’s law website. very unnerving, lemme tell ya! across the street is a stand-offish armenian family that we don’t know at all, and next to them we are on the 4th dysfunctional family of renters with children…every one of them have had screaming matches in their driveway and the cops have visited more than once (just yesterday even!) lovely, eh?
8. What do you consider a vacation? not having to cook or clean. the ultimate vacation would be not having to run after kids…but i know i’m nowhere near ready for that yet (not ready to trust someone that completely with them for an extended period of time yet.)
9. Do you follow your horoscope? no, don’t care, don’t believe that stuff.
10. Would you move for the person you loved? absolutely. i love moving! all the new possibilities excite the hell outta me. sadly, i may never get to move again, since i married someone who is still living in the city he was born and raised in and is NOT at all comfortable with what i see as an adventure (pick up and move somewhere brand new!). but that’s another long post entirely.
11. Are you touchy feely? not hugely, but i’m not NOT touchy feely…i think i only am with those that i am pretty sure are ok with it…people i know pretty well. and i can’t stand people i don’t know really well that are touchy feely with me. too forward, thankyou.
12. Do you believe that opposites attract? sure, just look at me and adam. we are pretty dang opposite in so many ways.
13. Dream job? oh gosh, i have many…kids party dj, founder/director of an alternative education preschool (maybe even elementary too!), founder/director of a summer day camp, naturalist taking groups of children and adults on educational trails in nature for hands-on learning…i digress…
14. Favorite channels? PBS!
15. Favorite place to go on a weekend? don’t usually go anywhere on weekends, but we have fun at bounce u when we are able to go! if i could get us off our duffs, i’d like to start taking the family regularly to yosemite!
16.Showers or Bath? showers…i don’t know what’s wrong with me but i really don’t enjoy baths usually.
17. Do you paint your nails? nope, don’t care that much. feel too froo froo if i do. but sometimes i like to feel froo-froo (like once every couple years, LOL!)
