Twenty Questions

Another meme from Sunday Stealing. Hey, it's something to do!

1) What side of the heart do you draw first? I start on the top right, draw that half, then go to the top left, and draw that half.

2) Can you dive without plugging your nose? Yes. Well, I did when I was young. I confess I have not taken a dive into a pool in a number of years.

3) What color is your razor? Blue.

4) What is your blood-type? I don't know. It's red in color, though. So I am not an alien.

5) Who would you want to be tied to for 24 hours? I've been tied to my husband for over 29 years, so he seems a likely suspect.

6) What is a rumor someone has spread about you? Hmm. I try to keep a relatively low profile. So I am not aware of any rumors about me. I can make something up for you, though, like I have a third eye growing in my head. If you know of any rumors about me, dear reader, please share.

7) How do you feel about carrots? I don't mind the baby carrots. When I eat a big ol' adult carrot, I tend to peel it and peel it until there is nothing left but this interesting skinny core. This core actually harbors the taste of the carrot, and it is sweet. The other part of the carrot tastes like dirt, so I discard that. It is basically a waste of a good carrot.

8) How many chairs at the dining room table? Three. One for me, one for my husband, one for my mother-in-law when she comes to visit. The other chair is ... well, I don't know what happened to the other chair. Maybe I should look for that. I am supposed to have four of them.

9) Which is the best Spice Girl? The one that smells like vanilla.

10) Do you know what time it is? Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care? If so I can't imagine why. We've all got time enough to die.

But yes. I always know what time it is. I wear a watch.

11) Do you know all the words to the Fresh Prince Theme Song? I didn't even know there was a Fresh Prince theme song.

12) What would you do if you were stuck in an elevator? I would jump up and down until I was rescued, on the theory that if the elevator fell, I would have a 50 percent chance of being in the air when it hit the ground, and thus more likely to survive the fall.

13) What’s your favorite kind of gum? Bubble gum.

14) All’s fair in love and war? Nothing is fair. Life is not fair. There is no such thing as inherent fairness. It is all down and dirty.

15) Do you have a crush on anyone? My husband. If you can call a 30-year relationship a crush.

16) Do you know how to use some words correctly, but not know the meaning? I'm afraid so. It comes from reading a lot and being an overall smarty pants.

17) Do you like to sleep? When I am tired I do.

18) Do you know which US states don’t use Daylight Savings time? No. I could use a search engine and find out, I suppose, but where's the fun in that. I am guessing that Arizona is one. It seems like something Arizonians would do.

19) Do you know the words to the song Total Eclipse of the Heart?

Turn around. Every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears. Turn around. Every now and then I get a little nervous that the best of all the years have gone by. Turn around. Every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then and I see the look in your eyes. Turn around bright eyes! Every now and then I fall apart. Turn around, bright eyes! Every now and then I fall apart! And I need you now tonight, and I need you more than ever. If you'll only hold me tight, we'll be holding on forever.

I think that is a "yes." Or at least I know some of them. Now I have to go look the song up on youtube!

20) Do you want a bright yellow ‘06 mustang? Um. No. But I would love to have a brand new 2013 Toyota Camry SE, white with a gray interior.


  1. As always, you crack me up. :)

  2. I love it when you do these. It lets me know you a bit better from the comfort of my home.

  3. It's always fun reading your answers to these. Especially loved the answer to number 10. I can sing most of the words to number 11 if it's on, but don't know them by heart...unlike number 19.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
