40 Things You Didn’t Know About Me

I found this mememe on Marla’s blog. I just referenced her blog; and since I’m not her fucking publicist or mother, I’m not linking it again!  

  1. My uncle once: took me to Atlantic City and we walked on the beach barefoot at midnight. It was January, too.  And cold as all hell.
  2. Never in my life:  will I learn to latch-hook.
  3.  When I was five:  I became a latch-key kid.
  4.  High School was: the  last bit of life that is relatively consequence free.
  5. I will never forget: how it felt to be riding in a cab alone in Amsterdam. It was the best “grown up” moment of my life so far.
  6. I once met: the ambassador to South Africa.
  7. There’s this girl I know who used to always: make her 4th Date Guys watch “Princess Bride” with her, and if he did not like it, he did not get to be 5th Date Guy.
  8. Once, at a bar:  the bartender walked in on my date and I ….doing stuff in the women’s room.
  9. By noon, I’m usually:  counting the minutes til “Go Home” time.
  10. Last night:  I watched a really bizarre Chinese movie in subtitles and had dinner with my brother.
  11. If only I had:  an English bulldog puppy, I would have the dog of my dreams.
  12. Next time I go to church: I want to wear a big floppy hat.
  13. Terry Schiavo:  makes me hungry.
  14. What worries me the most:is how fucking neurotic I realize I am whenever I contemplate all the different worries going thru my head at any given moment.
  15. When I turn my head left, I see: straight out one of my office windows to a brick wall.
  16. When I turn my head right, I see:  the closet in my office where my pants, skirts, jackets, and sweaters live.
  17. You know I’m lying when:  I don’t know. I don’t remember the last time I told a real lie.
  18. What I miss most about the eighties:  Mickey!!!! He was so fine!
  19. If I was a character in Shakespeare, I’d be: Katerina.
  20. By this time next year:  It will have been an entire year!
  21. A better name for me would be:  Vivian. (yeah it’s from Pretty Woman…I liked it before that movie.)
  22. I have a hard time understanding: why it’s so challenging for so many to be considerate of other people’s time; especially when THEY were the ones that asked for that time in the first place! 
  23. If I ever go back to school, I’ll: finish my degree and go to law school.
  24. You know I like you if:   …If  I have to explain it to you, I’ll probably put you back into the dislike category.
  25. If I ever won an award, the first person I’d thank would be: well, that totally depends on the award and how I won.
  26. Darwin, Mozart, Slim Pickens, & Geraldine Ferraro:  Talented Monkeys, Magic Flutes, Blazing Saddles, & Chick Politicians
  27. Take my advice, never: get upset because you were underestimated. No position is more powerful.
  28. My ideal breakfast is:  nothing. Eating breakfast annoys me.
  29. A song I love, but do not own is:  Opeth’s cover of Alice in Chains’ “Would?”
  30. If you visit my hometown, I suggest:  going to have bar-b-q and also hear live jazz.
  31. Tulips, Character Flaws, Microchips, & Track Stars: Holland, Hubris,Hitachi, & Hammer
  32. Why won’t people:refrain from putting bullshit questions like this on otherwise perfectly good mememe’s?
  33. If you spend the night at my house: my cat will kiss you on the lips while you sleep.  She wants to make everyone feel loved.
  34. I’d stop my wedding for:front row tickets to see Led Zepplin.
  35. The world could do without:any more whiny boy bands lacking discernible talent.
  36. I’d rather lick the belly of a cockroach than:  wear really short hair again.
  37. My favorite blonde is:  Val Kilmer.
  38. Paper Clips are more useful than:  everything.
  39. If I do anything well, it’s:  thinking up the perfect comeback, ten minutes after the moment passes.
  40. And by the way:  It’s taken me a week to plow thru this boring ass mememe. But now, I feel like I’ve invested so much time in it…”oh you’re finishin’ it, bitch!”

  2. Ugh.. I’m with you on the breakfast thing. Probably only because it’s always the same fucking piece of Weetabix and skim milk, while I drearily contemplate the pending yawnfest that is work. Crunch… Crunch… Crunch… unless you let it soak to a consistency akin to soggy wet cardboard to shut the GODAMNED ANNOYING CRUNCHING UP.

    Lunch is cool.
