This Should Keep You Busy For A While

1. What was the last thing you put in your mouth?
Key Lime Pie

2. Where was your profile picture taken?
Lebanon, Tennessee

3. Can you play Guitar Hero?
Never tried.

4. Name someone who made you laugh today. What was it about?
No one I know made me laugh, but I watched a movie called "Everybody Wants To Be Italian" and it was quite funny.

5. How late did you stay up last night and why?
4am. Watching TV, surfing the internet, writing my blog

6. If you could move somewhere else where would you and why?
I'd move to the Northeast or Tennessee. Why? Because Arizona is hot and ugly and I hate the Southwest.

7. Ever been kissed under fireworks?
Yes.

8. Which of your friends lives closest to you?
I travel for a living, so all of my friends are close. But in my home state, it's my friend Kim....she lives the closest.

9. Do you believe ex's can be friends? With benefits?
Sure, I guess you could be friends, but why would you want to? And no, I don't think there should be any benefits involved.

10. Do you like Dr. Pepper?
Yes.

11. When was the last time you cried really hard? Really hard as opposed to just sniveling?
OMG, just this morning as I was catching up on Grey's Anatomy. I can't watch that show without crying. I don't really know why, but there's always at least one scene that touches me enough to make me cry. But then again, I'm a big crier, so it doesn't take much.

12. Who took your profile picture?
The clerk at the department of motor vehicle. It's my driver's license photo.

13. Who was the last person you took a picture of?
Partygoers at my mother's friend's 70th surprise party.

14. Was yesterday better than today? Why?
No, yesterday was not better than today. They were surprisingly similar, minus the birthday party.

15. Can you live a day without TV?
I can live weeks and months without TV.

16. Are you upset about anything now?
Just that the cat doesn't seem to want to have anything to do with me.

17. Do you think relationships are ever really worth it?
Worth what? The time and energy put into them? Sometimes they are. And when they aren't worth it any longer, you just have to cut 'em loose.

18. Are you a bad influence?
No. I'm pretty vanilla.

19. Night out or night in?
IN, no contest. A night at home is much more enjoyable to me than anything I can think of which involves being out on the town.

20. What items could you not go without during the day?
My cellphone, a way to check email, makeup, gum and lately, milk.

21. Who was the last person you visited in the hospital?
It's been a long time since I've seen anyone in the hospital. I guess I'd have to say my stepfather, about five years ago.

22. What does the last text message in your inbox say?
"I'm serving at a wedding and
Lorrie Morgan is a guest...and she's a real BITCH!!" (A friend of mine is a banquet server in Nashville.)

23. How do you feel about your life right now?

I guess it could always be better but I think it's pretty damn good now.

24. Do you hate anyone?

Why yes, I do.

25. If we were to look in your Facebook inbox, what would we find?

Nothing. I don't usually correspond through Facebook.

26. Say you were given a drug test right now, would you pass?
With flying colors!

Yes. (How did they know??)

28. What song did you recently belt out loud?
Orange Colored Sky by Nat King Cole

29. Someone knocks on your window at 2 a.m., whom do you want it to be?
I guess it would depend on where I was because it's weird to have anyone knocking on your window at that hour, but if I were home, I guess I'd want it to be my brother. Although that would still be weird.

30. Do you (or did you) want to have grandkids before you’re 50?
No.

31. Tell us your Saturday night.
Dinner and a movie with my boyfriend and my parents.

32. Do you think too much or too little?

33. Do you smile a lot?
On the inside.

34. The phone rings. Who will it to be?
My mother, most likely.

35. When shopping at the grocery store, do you return your cart?
No. That's what they hire high school kids for.

36. In a social setting, are you more of a talker or a listener?
Talker.

37. Do you take compliments well?

Depends on the level of gushing. If it's too much, I'm uncomfortable. Unless of course, you're telling me how super-duper smart I am....then I can listen all day.

38. Do you play Sudoku?

Not on a regular basis, but I have tried it.

39. If abandoned alone in the wilderness, would you survive?

Yes. I'd hate it, but I think I'd survive.

40. Did you ever go to camp as a kid?

No. My parents liked me.

41. What was your favorite game as a kid?
Backgammon. Once my brother and I learned how to play, you coudn't tear us away.

42. If a sexy person was pursuing you, but you knew he was married, would you?
At this age I probably wouldn't, but in my twenties I would have.

43. Could you date someone with different religious beliefs than you?
It depends. There are some real crackpot religions out there. And I don't have strong religious beliefs anyway, so I guess I'd worry about it when the time came.

44. Do you like to pursue or be pursued?
I think I like both but I'm more comfortable being the one who pursues.

45. Use three words to describe yourself?
Generous, Bossy, Creative.

46. Do any songs make you cry?
Yes. One that always makes me cry is ”I Need You To Survive” by Hezekiah Walker & The Love Fellowship Choir from the movie, The Gospel.

47. Are you continuing your education?
Not formally, but I just recently started to look into online classes. And not to get a degree, really. Just to learn new stuff. The recruiters that have called me so far (well, harassed me, really) have a hard time with the answers I give them to their questions. "Do you plan on advancing your career with this degree?" No. "Are you changing your line of work?" No. "Do you need to change jobs because of the economy?" No. "You do know adult education classes are expensive, right? Is this a problem for you?" Uh, No. "Why are you considering going back to school?" To learn stuff I don't know. "What kind of degree do you want?" I really don't want a degree, I just want to take classes. WTF? Has no one ever taken college classes just for the hell of it??


48. Do you know how to shoot a gun?
Not really. I shot a .22 when I was younger and bb guns, but no "real" guns. I have no interest in firearms.

49. Have you ever taken pictures in a photo booth?
Yes. Have you seen THIS?

50. How often do you read books?
Not as often as I'd like, but I do have a Kindle and usually have it within arm's reach at any time. Although, I'm more of a magazine chick.

51. Do you think more about the past, present or future?
I'm a past dweller; good memories there. I never think much about the present. And occassionally, I wonder about the future but I don't think about it a whole lot.

52. What is your favorite children’s book?
I don't think I have a favorite. Dr. Seuss is pretty good, but I can't think of one that sticks out.

53.What color are your eyes?
Golden Brown.

54. How tall are you?
5'8"

September 2008.

58. Where was the furthest place you traveled today?
From the lazy boy to the kitchen.

59. Do you like mustard?
Yes. Gulden's Spicy Brown.

60. Do you prefer to sleep or eat?
Sleep. Although one look at my figure would lead you to believe otherwise.

61. Do you look like your mom or dad?
Both, but I think more my mother.

62. How long does it take you in the shower?
Maybe 15 minutes. Unless I have to shave my legs, then a little longer.

64. What movie do you want to see right now?
Coco before Chanel

65. What did you do for New Year’s?
I was home and there's nothing really to do in this town, although I'm not a big fan of NYE anyway.

66. Do you think The Grudge was scary?
I didn't see it. I don't do scary movies, I think they're stupid.

67. Do you own a camera phone?
Yes. Do we have a choice anymore?

68. Was your mom a cheerleader?
Absolutely not. And even if she were, I would never admit it.


69. What’s the last letter of your middle name?
I don't have a middle name.

70. How many hours of sleep do you get a night?
Usually six. Sometimes though, I get 10. Now that's a beautiful nights sleep.

71. Do you like Care Bears?
You do realize I'm not six years old, right? No, I do not like Care Bears. Not now and not then.

72. What do you buy at the movies?
Diet Coke and Nachos or Pretzel Bites. And I usually bring my own Twizzlers.

73. Do you know how to play poker?
No, but Eddie is a card shark. I just watch.

74. Do you wear your seat belt?
ALL THE TIME. Always have. Habit.

75. What do you wear to sleep?
Just underwear. I hate to be hot and I hate to wake up tangled in clothing.

76. Anything big ever happen in your hometown?
Not in the actual town my house was in, but a mere 25 miles from where I grew up, Woodstock took place. That's pretty big.

77. How many meals do you eat a day?
Usually two.

78. Is your tongue pierced?
No.

Seriously funny people.

80. Ever been to L.A.?
Many times.

81. Did you eat a cookie today?
Yes, I ate a few Oreo's.

82. Do you use cuss words in other languages?
Yes. Italian. (I have my grandparents to thank for learning those!)

83. Do you steal or pay for your music downloads?
Pay. But I don't do it that often.

84. Do you hate chocolate?
What kind of freak hates chocolate??

85. What do you and your parents fight about the most?
Semantics.

86. Are you a gullible person?
No.

87. Do you need a boyfriend to be happy?
No.

88. What do you think about people who party a lot?
I generally think they're losers. And the older they get, the higher their loser quotient is.

89. Are you easy to get along with?
How do you answer this? I mean, I think I'm easy to get along with, but I also know that I'm demanding and bossy and talk alot. So really, this is probably a question for other people. I guess I'd say yes based on the people who want to be around me and the good time we have when we're together. But then again, people who didn't like you, wouldn't call you to hang out, would they? So how do you measure this?

90. What is your favorite time of day?
Very early in the morning, before the world is awake.

91. How do you flush the toilet in public?
With my foot.

92. What is something that people are currently “into” that you just don’t get or appreciate?
Mafia Wars on Facebook.

93. What is something that really hoists your sail that other people might feel ho-hum about?
Bookstores.

94. What is the last thing you broke?
A glass at a friend's house when I was "bartending".

95. A really great salad must contain which ingredient?
Radishes.

96. Do security cameras make you nervous?
Uh....no....I mean, should they?

97. What was the alternate name that your parents almost named you? Do you wish they had chosen it instead of the one they gave you?
My mother wanted to name me Claudia because she had a cousin by that name but then she found out it meant "lame" and decided against it. Some days though, it's a perfect fit. She also wanted to name me Jenny, beause she liked the song "Jenny Rebecca" by Barbara Streisand and my father had an Aunt Jenny. And no, I don't wish they chose either of those names. I love my name. It's pretty unique and I've only met two other people in my life with the same name (but different spelling). You can hear Jenny Rebecca HERE; it's instrumental in the beginning of this video, with the actual song starting at 2:25, so skip ahead.

98. You get a package in the mail. What is it, and who is it from?
It's probably a gift from my cousin Ro. She finds the best stuff and always puts a little something in the mail for me.

99. What song do you hate the most?
I have two; 500 Miles by The Proclaimers and The Lion Sleeps Tonight by The Tokens (although most people know it from "The Lion King"). But if I had to chose which one I hate more, it would be the lion one.

100. Did just mentioning that song make it get stuck in your head?
Yes. And when Ed wants to irritate me, he sings that stupid Weemowaka part.

Loved the Gulden's mustard. I once booked a flight out of La Guardia because my cousin, from Jackson Heights, mentioned they had Gulden's spicy brown and not that yellow crap!

Lots of interesting things there -- !

But 2 of particular interest:
(1) Who gets a good photo like that at the DMV?? I am awaiting my new license in the mail - fingers crossed.

(2) You have a cat? IN the truck??

B in Dallas

B: My DMV photo...I know!! LOL I got lucky. Twice, actually...my last license was good too...I didn't even mind showing anyone. I hope I can keep this one forever! :

and the cat...I'm actually at my Mom's right now and she has a cat. I would love one in the truck but really, not enough room...if only they didn't need a litter box!
