I Want It All Just Right

My Random Randomness Meme

From Sunday Stealing

1. How did you choose your baby's or pet's names?

A. I haven't had a pet in years. My dog that died in 2001 was named Ginger, and I picked that name just because I liked it.

2. Have you ever been fishing?

A. Yes. When I was about 10 years old I won a bag of chips at the Salem Fishing Rodeo for catching a catfish in the trout pond.

3. Have you ever had your national flag painted on your face?

A. No.

4. What was the last social faux pas you made?

A. I have no idea. I probably talked with my mouth full or wiped my nose on my sleeve or something gross like that.

5. What makes you nostalgic?

A. Smells - wood burning, chocolate chip cookies, old people odors.

6. What's the scariest thing you've ever done?

A. I went up in a hot air balloon once. I rode a motorcycle. I have shot guns. I went into surgery. Okay, that last one is the scariest, hands down.

7. What fairy tale character would you most associate with?

A. The princess in the Princess and the Pea. I am a little OCD and I have to have everything just so. So maybe also Goldilocks in the Three Bears, who wanted it all just right.

8. How much do you tend to swear in public?

A. Not as much as I do in private.

9. If you ruled your own country, who would you get to writer your national anthem?

A. Well, not you, O person who asked this question, since your sentence has a typo in it. I think Melissa Etheridge, though, could write a good national anthem for my country.

10. Who is the most intelligent person you know?

A. My friend in England is probably the most intelligent person I know. But I know a lot of very smart people.

11. What's the craziest thing you've ever done for someone?

A. Chasing cows for my husband is pretty crazy, especially at my age.

12. What's the worst piece of advice anyone has ever given you?

A. To do anything for money.

13. If you had to describe yourself as a flavor, what would it be?

A. Blue Raspberry.

14. If you had to describe yourself as a car, what would it be?

A. Toyota Prius.

15. If you had to describe yourself as an animal, what would it be?

A. Deer.

16. Do you think laughing at someone else's misfortune is wrong?

A. Yes. Of course it is wrong.

17. If a loved one was to serenade you, what song would you most like them to sing?

A. Anything with "I love you" in it. Or maybe "Annie's Song" by John Denver.

18. Would you ever let your parents pick out a partner for you?

A. No.

19. Have you ever tried spam? (the meat product)

A. Yes, and I actually like it. It is also good to have on the shelf in the event of an apocalypse.


  1. I relate to the princess and the pea.
    I actually told my boss that last week.
    and yes.. English people are much more intelligent then ordinary people!

  2. "Annie's Song" always really got to one of my grandmothers. Which amazed me as a kid, because she was such a hard-hearted, tough old bird. So I have a soft spot in my heart because it showed that the angry old lady was indeed human. Thanks for reminding me!

  3. I bet winning that bag of chips was quite a prize for a kid!

  4. A closet curser? I never woulda thunk it!

  5. Well I am smiling ~ know you much better now . :)

  6. I like your answer of Melissa Etheridge! I suppose I'd eat Spam in the event of an apocalypse. Hmm...chasing cows for your hubby. Sounds interesting and probably quite the sight to see!

  7. I once had a cat named Ginger. We named her because she reminded us of a woman we had a meeting with just before we adopted the cat.

  8. My last cat's name was Squeaky -- because she squeaked when she meowed. It was rather pitiful. It's been a long time since I had spam. We had it a lot growing up. I liked your story about "Annie's Song."
