This random meme was lifted from Stephanie's Emma Bug Blog ...please join in on the fun if you feel so inclined...

1. What bill do you hate paying the most? Damn, they are all equally difficult to *want* to pay.

2. Where was the last place you had a romantic dinner? In my own home.

3. Last time you puked from drinking? Hoo boy - maybe in college?

4. When is the last time you got drunk and danced on a bar? Only in my dreamz, actually, but when I watch MTV's Real World, I wonder if I missed out on something?

5. Name of your first grade teacher? Miss Johnson. I always thought that she was strange b/c it seemed as though her knees were on backwards.

6. What do you really want to be doing right now? Rocking my child to sleep.

7. What did you want to be when you were growing up? A Five-Star-General of the Army like Douglas MacArthur. Only to make my father proud, to be honest. After I became a pacifist, however, I wanted then to become a helper like, Marie Curie.

8. How many colleges did you attend? Three.

9. Why did you choose the shirt that you have on right now? Because I liked the color and because it went with brown - my favorite work-related color.

10. GAS PRICES??? Painful.

11. Where would you move if you could move anywhere? Either Paris, France...if we are talking International...or Austin, TX...if we are talking domestic.

12. First thought when the alarm went off this morning? When will I wake b/c a baby needs me vs. my longstanding vocational committment?

13. Last thought before going to sleep last night? Did I remember to record 24?

21. Have you found real love yet? Yeppers. I mean...Yeeeessshhhh (watch The Office, anyone?)!

22. When did you first start feeling old? Oh boy. Probably around 35...when "the eggs" start going to shit.

23. Favorite 80's movie? ValleyGirl...for totally.

So glad you loved The Kite Runner - I read it last year on vacation and thought it was wonderful too!

Kathy and Joel said...

I love Tim Gunn and would also love to have dinner with him. Even if only to hear him say, "Make It Work!".

a&mg said...

I think it's so funny what sticks in our minds about our teachers. It makes me wonder what my kiddos remember about me??!!

Jessi said...

I would totally love to be at that dinner party!

secret agent said...

amazon sent me a "since you bought this... you'd probably enjoy Kiterunner.
I deleted it, I thought it looked boring.......
but, since you so highly recommend it, I will order it.

Katie J said...

Ahh, puking. I certainly don't miss that one. Fun meme.

Stacy said...

What a fun meme~ They 'eggs' went south had me giggling! That was funny!

Headmeister said...

LOVE this meme, chica! And, I loved your answers... I'll have to be a copy cat and do it myself. Als wanted to let you know that I will be reading The Kite Runner soon, as you are jsut so over the moon about it, and I've been needing some good reading back in my life again.

And BTW - can you give me some more info on those bears you speak of? Email me when you find a moment and tell em all about them!

Joannah said...

Did you actually sing that to your counselor? Wow!

I like this meme...

I might do one, too.

Beth and Shayna said...

#23, your answer, oh we were so meant to be friends. Can Nick Cage look any sexier? Great answers sweetie. Make sure to keep an open mind about your favorite cartoon character. I am sure Buttercup will turn you on to new ones.

Mrs. Vandertramp said...

Mmm - liverwurst. Brings back so many childhood memories.

Shandra said...

Darn those paparazzi, they always get in the way.

kris said...
